Hi Daniel. Listening to your weird music on a lil Bluetooth speaker at my Airbnb, as I get ready to go listen to more weird music at the MUTEK festival. Seeing Aleksi Perala in a couple of hours!

The InfiniTee shirt arrived! 100% cotton, really good looking, sure to amaze and confound shoppers at Ralphs with the hypnotic design.

Kat, you lucky woman! You should do live updates! One of these years my work schedule will align and I'll be able to enjoy the fest in one of my favorite cities!

I hear Bluetooth is a thing now.

Fleep you must be in the left coast.
  Fri. 8/24/18 9:16pm rw:

fleep, I’ve got one of those! I’ve had one or two confounded looks already too!

fleep, you mean the 'schnapps? Happy to hear! And thanks to Alex J fer the design of the beast!
  Fri. 8/24/18 9:17pm Joe Mulligan:

So far, the pattern has been, people squint and stare to read the small font of the wunderschnaps t, then after reading they show a look of confused disappointment. Mission accomplished
  Fri. 8/24/18 9:21pm retard_riot:

the NECKS! wunderschnapps! great music to work to! thanks DB
  Fri. 8/24/18 9:21pm Joe Mulligan:

If only they could hear the music while staring at the wundershnaps t!
  Fri. 8/24/18 9:23pm Kat in Chicago in Montréal right now:

Good to hear about the tee, I hope that means my swag will be waiting when I get home on Monday!

  Fri. 8/24/18 9:36pm Joe Mulligan:

@jake, chresri, I do see the messengers in the city with the Bluetooth but those are the size of a rocks glass strapped to their shoulder bags . A tiny WFMU button on the shirt would be great to play the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 9:37pm Daniel Blumin:

rw & Joe... confounding disappointment!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 9:39pm JakeGould:

There should be a review site for Bluetooth audio devices that lets you know what sound/noise/voice it makes if you turn it on, sync it or disconnect it. Some of the cheap ones have crazy voices on them that sound half-brain damaged.

*Boy* Dirt Car, isn't it?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 9:43pm JakeGould:

Homeless guys in my neighborhood hang out on benches listening to anything on their smartphones and sometimes share cheap Bluetooth speaker. They are damned cheap in the discount stores nowadays. But it is definitely like the AM radio of the 21st century.
  Fri. 8/24/18 9:48pm rw:

WFMU Bluetooth speaker pin would make a great premium.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 9:48pm Daniel Blumin:

Tome, greetz!!! Dean, and they are still doing great shtuff!
  Fri. 8/24/18 9:49pm Dean:

Nothing quite like a handheld transistor radio secured beneath the pillow to send one to dreamland.

I had no idea BDC were still around!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 9:50pm JakeGould:

@Dean: The problem is nowadays so many loon balls fill up AM with hate talk you will get nightmares.
  Fri. 8/24/18 9:51pm Dean:

@JakeGould: True. Sigh. But even then I enjoyed listening to that era's version of loon ball.

  Fri. 8/24/18 9:58pm Kat in Chicago in Montréal right now:

Jake, where do the homeless guys charge their phones and their speakers?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 9:59pm JakeGould:

@Kat: Lots of places. This is not a new thing. Some know how to find lampposts that have sockets. The local subway has USB chargers. So do some buses. It’s not a luxury to have a smartphone in 2018.
  Fri. 8/24/18 10:02pm Kat in Chicago in Montréal right now:

The Chicago trains don’t have USB, but it’s possible to find a socket on some of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 10:04pm JakeGould:

Also, it costs less than $10 to get a portable USB battery that has decent capacity. Just let that fill up and take it wherever.
  Fri. 8/24/18 10:04pm Kat in Chicago in Montréal right now:

I’ve only rarely seen homeless folks here with phones.
  Fri. 8/24/18 10:04pm Kat in Chicago in Montréal right now:

(in Chicago that is)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/24/18 10:05pm chresti:

charging can be done in LA at parks, libraries, other public settings
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 10:07pm JakeGould:

Also, there are LinkNYC monoliths in NYC that are basically Wi-Fi hubs that also have USB charging ports as well. You can see all kinds of people charging near those at times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/24/18 10:08pm chresti:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 10:10pm Daniel Blumin:

Neanderthal Head! Thanks fer the earses!
  Fri. 8/24/18 10:10pm Kat in Chicago in Montréal right now:

Are those LinkNYC things new? I don’t recall those when I was there last.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 10:12pm JakeGould:

@Kat: Oh yes, they are new. Kinda like Citibike in that they are in mainly the most populated neighborhoods. But if you find yourself sleeping on the streets of Chelsea at night near a LinkNYC—and there are lots of them—you get some great streaming speeds.
  Fri. 8/24/18 10:14pm Kat in Chicago in Montréal right now:

Well I hope I don’t find myself sleeping on the street next time I’m there, but that’s still good to know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/24/18 10:14pm chresti:

dt la has something like that
  Fri. 8/24/18 10:16pm rw:

Daniel, confounded disappointment aside, that’s one handsome t-shirt there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 10:17pm JakeGould:

Anyway… Streaming internet audio is very common and bike messengers with clip-on Bluetooth speakers are common as well. Moreso than small radios being carried around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/24/18 10:18pm steveo:

@jake: it occurs to me, perhaps some listener saw my pete seeger comments and cut the extension cord and that's why the snowman is/was temporarily unavailable
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 10:19pm Daniel Blumin:

Thanks, rw!!! One day they'll understand the wunderschnapps!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/24/18 10:26pm JakeGould:

@steveo: Maybe some idiot decided they needed to charge their cellphone and killed the snowman in the process.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/24/18 10:27pm steveo:

...or a bike messenger charging his bluetooth speaker?
