The vacation was a lot of fun. Many crab cakes were ingested as well as many beers and I brought home a bunch of records. My birthday was delightful, thank you. Some new cooking supplies and books.

I eat ramen noodles that you heat in the pot or microwave but not actual ramen. I don't like the eggs and stuff that's in ramen.

@Erica - I LOVE the eggs, and the pork belly, and the noodles and the seaweed and every other delicious Japanese thing they stuff in there. I haven't tried cold ramen yet, but I intend to soon.
Avatar Wed. 9/5/18 10:13pm Erica:

Larry I was talking about instant noodles. And I'm glad you enjoy the meal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/5/18 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

My youngest son loves the instant ones, and they are a lot cheaper than the real thing.

I lived on top ramen in the 70s- adding egg, mushrooms, garlic...

That's the way to go. Customize the cheap stuff.

Yeah me too. I especially love the cheddar cheese noodles (yes they exist - they're sold at Walmart).

Larry, next time your in L.A. I'll take you on a ramen crawl. We live in the SGV which thick with ramen parlors.

Oooh! Gotta look for those!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/5/18 10:17pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - I would love that. I'd also like to hit all the good Mexican taco trucks, Vietnamese restaurants and every other plentiful ethnic food in the LA area.

Don't forget Huntington Park. There is this place called Aqui Es Tescoco that is in some industrial area that serves boreggo (lamb) Mexico city style, on the weekends.
  Wed. 9/5/18 10:27pm Dean:

When the audience expands, the product often suffers. Folks have been dining at Los Sanchez for years (though now it's renamed, which disturbs me). It is a viable, superlative Mexican take-out joint. They're not equipped to handle quasi-celebrity, thanks to, well, David Chang, Guy Fieri, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/5/18 10:27pm Funky16Corners:

We're very lucky that Central NJ has become a settling ground for people from Southeast and South Asia. There is a great variety of Chinese, Indian, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Korean food within driving distance. Unfortunately our local banh mi place shut down recently.

Re: school schedule - there’s mounting consensus that kids’ brains need sleep and to change class start time an hour or so later. Teacher’s unions oppose the idea
  Wed. 9/5/18 10:28pm Dean:

Frankly, I'm not into fine distinctions between cuisines. If it's good shit, it's good shit. If it ain't, it ain't.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/5/18 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

@Chresti - My wife is a teacher and she would LOVE a later start time. In our town I think that the early start time in the high schools is due to distribution of bus resources.
Avatar Wed. 9/5/18 10:30pm Erica:

I was aware this week's show would be Beatles-related with the Revolver album. I was expecting more Beatles versions though.

There are studies that teens sleep clock is shifted to fall asleep later, and wake up later, and recommendations to start classes later Some school districts have started doing this.

Dean, this afternoon I was driving around like an aimless fool when the dinner bell went off. The first place I saw was Senior Fish, so it was fish burritos for me and the missus. While scarfing her's down, Chesti comment how they resemble the great mission style burritos in SF. Now I know them is fightin' words to lots of L.A. homies, but shit dude, these killed it...maybe I was just starving.
Avatar Wed. 9/5/18 10:40pm Erica:

Not me. I had trouble getting any sleep as a teenager (stress, IBS, worries).
  Wed. 9/5/18 10:41pm Dean:

I have never partaken of a "mission style burrito." I have, however, enjoyed burritos in Concord, which are dynamite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/5/18 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

I remember coming home from school and collapsing on the couch for two hours, then eating dinner and staying up until midnight listening to the radio.

  Wed. 9/5/18 10:57pm rw:

Hey Franco! Mostly we go to a place called Taqueria de Anda. There are a couple around here. Had a rice bean and cheese burrito from there today! There's also an El Faralito down the street. Excellent breakfast place.

@Doc - Her real name is Linda Tillery. She was the lead singer of a San FRancisco band called the Loading Zone. Why they 'rebranded' her like that I have no idea, but it was only for one album

when i bought revolver, as a teen, i didn't know to get the original version, as opposed to the bullshit american version (on capitalist records) - so there was no i'm only sleeping, no and your bird can sing, and no doctor robert - 3 of the best songs on revolver; so i didn't understand why people raved about the album.

I never bought Beatles records. Every time I picked up one in the record store I would look at the song titles and hear every one of them clearly in my head so I didn't see a reason to shell out the cash and move on to something else.

I was in San Francisco with my family the week Revolver was released. So, on KYA, Got To Get You Into My Life was in heavy rotation with You Can't Hurry Love by The Supremes and You're Gonna Miss Me by The 13th Floor Elevators!

It's funny, a smuch time as I spend digging into the 60s (and earlier) my formative radio years were in the 70s, and I find myself lingering on the Sirius 70s channel in the car and experiencing some deep nostalgia, even with records that I'm not particularly attached to, simply because of the Proustian impact of them bringing moments of my youth back to me.

This is awesome!

My first Beatles was from the babysitter when she brought “I wanna hold your hand” with her. Later, when we moved to California, my big brother’s friend from next door , in Illinois, would send a pile of records every year starting in ‘66 or ‘67.

@Erica - It's strange but I think a combination of my own age, and the fact that my oldest son is the age I was in 1976, has unlocked a powerful wave of nostalgia/yearning in me recently. It was kind of unexpected.

Hey SBP! Yes indeed. Sadly passed away a few weeks ago.
Avatar Wed. 9/5/18 11:23pm Erica:

The thing about nostalgia is though, you can't feel it until you've experienced something before in the past. It isn't nostalgic if you're unfamiliar with something. Obvious but true. Better to learn things now before it's too late.

I was an unhappy kid. I'm more nostalgic for youth itself than for anything I experienced

But how can you feel nostalgic about a time you were an unhappy kid?
  Wed. 9/5/18 11:26pm rw:

F16C, That's one of my favorite things about having kids, seeing them experience the world from a fresh perspective.
Avatar Wed. 9/5/18 11:27pm still b/p:

Funny to look back. Though I was a youth neither of initiative or optimism, from way up here now that seems a time of open possibilities.

Haunting track that was!

not that much music makes me feel nostalgic. i actually listened to it from about the age of 4, when my dad first put meet the beatles on the record player. so i've always thought of it - not just had it there.
meet the beatles is of course an exception. so is absolutely freeeeee by the mothers; and let it bleed. -and some radio hits...
Avatar Wed. 9/5/18 11:33pm Jeff Ash:

Interesting that you should say that about the Sirius '70s channel. I find it unlistenable. Just heard too many dreadful songs too many times back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/5/18 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

The 70s is really where the divide between cool/unusual music and the pop charts opened very wide

I think I walked away from 70s mainstream pop for so long that it sounds somewhat refreshing these days

I don't have Sirius XM but my sister's husband has it in his car. He had Classic Vinyl on, which was the classic rock station back in November.

The music you were exposed to as a youngster has a better chance of sticking in your brain - the cement is still wet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/5/18 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

i still don't want to hear that much of the radio music from the mid-seventies onward, but given the choice of 70s rock and pop, or any of the overwhelming majority of music made from the mid-80s until now, it's a no brainer. 70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/5/18 11:39pm Funky16Corners:

I mainly listen to 60s, 70s, Little Stevens Underground Garage, Soultown, and the classical stations

haha! sirius "classic vinyl" - in ultra-high-distortion mp3 sound!
  Wed. 9/5/18 11:42pm Dean:

Come the '70s, I started listening to medieval and Renaissance music, Western classical, what came to be known bizarrely as "world" music. Rock and pop were just more of the same. If you've heard Clemencic's traversal of Carmina Burana tunes, you realize rock/pop have deep histories.
  Wed. 9/5/18 11:42pm rw:

Man, I find so many compelling shows on WFMU I find it difficult to get too far away. Luckily I'm on the west coast so the late night shows are on during my prime time.

I didn't make up the station name sadly coel. And not all mp3s are distorted. Depends on the quality of the rip.

My Sirius listening is all in the car, always on trips too short to listen to a podcast

i listen to a lot of new music; but almost nothing that is acceptable to "the mainstream audience".

no Franco, i know. some mp3s sound decent. that's never been my experience with sirius though. i'd rather listen to the motor.

Speaking of Sirius, I'm going to need a new car soon. Not looking forward to it really. Do they all have video screens in the dashboard now?

...i'm sorry - i mean Erica! (not Franco)

Our newer car is a 2016 Toyota Sienna, and I remember getting into it at the dealer, and staring at the dashboard like a caveman when it lit up, and it was comparitively primitive to some of the newer set ups

Miracles by the Jefferson Starship will always be a good memory for me. It reminds me of been at the laundromat in San Francisco,and enjoying it! Probably the last time I had fun at a laundromat.

rw, the 1989 volvo 240 wagon doesn't! (and i'll bet you can see what's going on around yourself better than in a car with cameras)

Miracles reminds me of removing keys from all the used cars on a lot near closing hour while it played on the dealership PA.

I have a 1984 Volvo 240 DL wagon that we use to store trash in. I am very nostalgic about going camping in that car.

coel, 89 may be too old for me, but yeah, I was having that conversation with my daughter today about how people rely on the camera and don't think about actually looking!
