Hello Mary Wing! With you in New Providence.

Another volunteer wore the same FMU shirt today at work!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 12:22pm Carmichael:

Heya Mary, gotta run off to a stoopid meeting, but thought I should wave as I ran out. Be back later. Don't play anything good yet ....
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 12:25pm coelacanth∅:

hi Mary i'm only here for a moment unfortunately i think but this track is 100% excellent, Whatever it is.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 12:25pm βrian:

Peeking in. Is the track listing not updating?
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 12:30pm βrian:

"Houston, we have paisley."
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 12:32pm Mary Wing:

Hello fine people! I am here, in paisley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 12:32pm maestroso:

Ah, here we go...
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 12:38pm Mary Wing:

Ike, are you here volunteering today?
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 12:38pm Mary Wing:

(I suppose I can run upstairs and look, heh)
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 12:44pm Mary Wing:

Ike is not in the building! Which T-shirt are you takling about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 12:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Mary, Whatevers. I got my Moondog glow-in-the-dark magnet the other day!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:00pm Mary Wing:

Sweet! What other swag did you get?
  Wed. 8/8/18 1:02pm ike:

No, at my workplace. We're both wearing the suspicious headphone-wearers shirt.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:06pm Mary Wing:

Heh, nice. I love that shirt.
  Wed. 8/8/18 1:07pm ike:

Wow, I didn't expect to hear this particular 90s NSFWer on GTDR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 1:08pm Webhamster Henry:

I didn't order anything .. but apparently won a prize from Continental Subway!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:17pm Mary Wing:

No T-shirts, Henry? But why?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 1:19pm Webhamster Henry:

I have sooo many WFMU T shirts. I'm wearing on in my profile picture! (actually , the simple tilted WFMU chars one is one I don't have)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 1:20pm doctorjazz:

Hi folks!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:21pm βrian:

I had to take my T-shirt to a repair shop to have a pocket sewn on.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:28pm Mary Wing:

Hiya doctorjazz! Lunch time!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:29pm JakeGould:

Hey folks!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:31pm Mary Wing:

Happy Humid Wednesday, Jake!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:32pm JakeGould:

Oy vey… I hate this weather. I like walking during my lunch breaks and after. But it is too damned hot.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:34pm βrian:

That almost sounds like my old Olivetti.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:38pm βrian:

I write code to this music sometimes.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:39pm Mary Wing:

Olivetti typewriter?
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:45pm βrian:

Yes, something about the clack in the percussion.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:45pm JakeGould:

Tom Hanks is big on typewriters.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:46pm βrian:

(But not for the coding, no.)
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:47pm βrian:

Lactobacillus bulgaricus!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:52pm JakeGould:

Mmmm… Nothing like yogurt on a disturbingly hot and humid day. Why I might get some yogurt and eat in in the above track area over the 4/5/6 lines to bet a blast of the subway heat as well!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:55pm Mary Wing:

Heh. The only real food on days like this is ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 1:56pm βrian:

I dunno. A nice raspberry sorbet can be awfully nice, too.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:00pm JakeGould:

I really like the new fangled ice cream sandwiches out there that have those cake-like cookies on each side. A few different places make a few different versions, but they are my go-to snack when it is utterly vile outside.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:02pm βrian:

This reminds me that I want to make some limoncello, not too sweet, to serve icy cold.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:04pm steveo:

Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:05pm JakeGould:

This reminds me of this artwork at MoMA. That snowman knows how to live! www.moma.org...
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:05pm βrian:

Will it be Summer Breeze?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:06pm steveo:

have you seen that show at moma, jake? i think i got my kids interested in attending.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:07pm steveo:

she wore a raspberry sorbet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:07pm Webhamster Henry:

You really need to update the name of "3 of a kind". Maybe borrow DJ Stashu's "Jeszcze raz"?
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:07pm JakeGould:

@steveo: Not yet. But will most likely this week. I think staring at a snowman in this heat is a very good use of my time/iife.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:08pm steveo:

the main problem is that it's out in the courtyard, iirc, where it's likely to be 10 million degrees and 800% humidity
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:08pm Mary Wing:

Hola steveo! Just in time for 3oak!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:09pm steveo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:09pm steveo:

@jake also it's hard to get motivated because moma has not posted a closing date for that show. @mary i love 1976 & therefore this song.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:10pm Mary Wing:

Thanks for the link, Jake! I might go on Friday to see a snowman in the summer, heh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:11pm Webhamster Henry:

100% Whatever fans who want their own talkover bed can get the excellent iOptigan app, curated by Pea Hicks himself. Select the "Movin'!" disk.

"This today sound will give a new beat to all your favorites"

No front desk bell though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:11pm Carmichael:

OK, back just in time for the Dream Weaver! Life is good.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:12pm Mary Wing:

That looks so cool, Henry! Did you get it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:13pm steveo:

maybe i'll go on friday at lunch and just ask everyone I see if they are mary wing
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:14pm Mary Wing:

Heh heh heh! Just ask females near the snowman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:15pm steveo:

i'll be the aging white guy with a bird beak tee
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:15pm Mary Wing:

This has a "Life During Wartime" sound to it, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:17pm Carmichael:

That Optigan app has a polka version for Stashu!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:18pm JakeGould:

Has anyone seen those colander sculptures in City Hall Park? I’m on the fence on those despite the fact I can see them for free. They just look like some eccentric neighbor’s lawn trash sculptures… And I have seen a lot of those.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:19pm Spankyflop:

I thought that was Gene Simmons for a second.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:20pm Webhamster Henry:

@Mary oh yeah. It's a quality piece of work, it keeps all the noise and scratches of authentic Optigan disks, the power switch and transposition wheel, while it also has MIDI controls (!) They even kept its mysterious habit of playing an A diminished instead of an A Major. All 40 sound disks are available, and sequences featuring Mr. Hicks' "Optiganally yours" backing tracks.
Thumbs up!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:31pm Sem:

Love, love, love Nancy Wilson. Hello, Mary, the 100%, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good afternoon, Mary and dream weaving whatevers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:32pm steveo:

are we supposed to pick a favorite?
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:32pm βrian:

"Lawn colander" is another good candidate for a speakeasy password.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:33pm steveo:

i met a friend at a speakeasy on norfolk this week; it was pretty perfect; the band was good, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:34pm steveo:

i got a seltzer, but they still put it in a coffee mug, just in case
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:35pm steveo:

people in period dress dancing; good stuff
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:37pm Mary Wing:

Hullo, Sem! Nancy got the pipes, yep.
Hi Ken, glad you made it!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:38pm david w:

The "delete" key on my keyboard is busted so I can't change my mind about anything today.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:39pm Mary Wing:

Heh heh, David! Highlight and then press the space bar!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:39pm βrian:

@david: ⌘-z
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:40pm Carmichael:

I vote for the Richie Havens version.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:44pm david w:

Yep, workarounds is my middle name. Anyway, hi Mary and everyone! Good stuff!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 2:53pm Mary Wing:

Richie's version will be in the archives; I'm running out of time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:54pm steveo:

my soul's like a wheel that's turning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 2:59pm steveo:

thanks mary -- good listening!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 3:00pm Mary Wing:

I think we know all the lyrics to this song now! Thanks for listening!!
Avatar Fri. 8/17/18 12:35pm JakeGould:

I just want to say I went to MoMA this past weekend, but because it was raining I couldn’t see the snowman up close. Only through a window.

Then yesterday I FINALLY made it during the day when it wasn’t crazy… BUT THE SNOWMAN WAS TEMPORARILY REMOVED BY THE MUSEUM STAFF!!!
