Some of the earlier selections put me in mind of Fiddler...and I was playing the Sunrise, Sunset melody half-assedly on one string of the guitar. I like lyricist Sheldon Harnick's story of the first times letting people hear Sunrise, Sunset - played for Jerrry bock's wife and then Sheldon's sister -- and they cried.

People should use UTC more often. As a person who had to deal with time issues in programming, "what time is it" is a very non trivial question!

I've always proposed using UTC. relative time will become meaningless once people get used to it.

That could only work if everyone went along with it, of course. A tough sell, I'm sure.

Thanks, Sem, have a good night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 5:59pm Webhamster Henry:

First you'd just use UTC, especially when scheduling international streaming events (like Continental Subway)... this would both be accurate and tell people it's an inter-temporal event! People can just ask their digital assistants to schedule it for them or translate the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 6:02pm David D:

True, smartphones, computers, and the like could all just show us the current UTC. It would surely work very well in a rational world.

But what do I know? I can't even get one of the computers in the main radio room to shut off. It keeps rebooting itself.

We should abandon the fiction of time as a cycle altogether, just start enumerating hours from now until doomsday. If we started today, then 43812 o'clock would be what we now refer to as tomorrow five years hence.

People at the South Pole could get to choose their own timezones. (I think they go with New Zealand, where a lot of the supply planes come from).

Dresden has been fixed up rather nicely in places, and the Frauenkirche restored. Or do you mean politically?
Avatar    Tue. 9/11/18 7:14pm βrian:

Not politically. My head's in the sand, in that regard. For the day, anyway.

I've noticed Tokyo also has rebuilt from its own fire bombing as well the last time I was there.

I like how in Berlin, the Reichstag, the Pergomon, and other public building have left bullet and shrapnel scars on their facade as a reminder of the war.
Avatar    Tue. 9/11/18 7:20pm βrian:

Wow, Mickey and I share a birthday.

I liked Christo's treatment of the Reichstag. Like supple bandages.

Had a Vonnegut immersion when I was 15. Started with Slaughterhouse Five, then about five others in high school on my own and in class reading. Only a couple after that, though.
In a local park with someone much younger during a theater perfomance last summer, we saw a big asterisk spray-painted simply and roughly on the side of a large concrete pipe waiting to be installed in the ground, and then realized we'd both had the identical thought: the simple rendering looked like Vonnegut's depiction of the ol' human A-hole in his drawings for Breakfast of Champions.

WKAR got stuck on Elgar. Good lord, I've had enough Elgar.

i'm ashamed to say that my biggest vonnegut immersion (save the turtle) was the movie "breakfast for champions", which i remember liking despite it's reputation

Kuba: I agree that the movie was strangely underrated.

I recently reread Cat's Cradle - which has lost none of its brilliance or relevance.

Ah, happy Birthday Brian, today was my mom's birthday as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 7:33pm northguineahills:

I revisited Vonnegut about 4 years ago, as I hadn't read him since HS. Glad I did (Breakfast of Champions was my intro when I was 16)

Ah, why, 'zank you! And let's shout out to D.H. Lawrence, as well.
  Tue. 9/11/18 7:33pm Jeff:

Didn't know Breakfast of Champions was a movie, tho I haven't seen Slaughterhouse Five yet either, so I should probably start with that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 7:34pm David D:

Yes, I've been meaning to reread some of his others, but I think we lent a few out permanently at some point.

Greetings Jeff! Yes, BoC was a movie that got terrible reviews, but which Kuba and I both seem to think was okay.
  Tue. 9/11/18 7:39pm Jeff:

Just saw the trailer...looks more intriguing than I found the book. May be better suited to the medium than to print.

@βrian: SUper duper happy bday! Also my wife's bday, and half of her design team lost their jobs today (including her). Four years ago she got laid off a week before her bday. (and we just renewed our Brooklyn lease two weeks ago)
Avatar    Tue. 9/11/18 7:45pm βrian:

Oh, no. Vonnegut was most certainly best manifested via print. Or, at least, ink on paper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 7:46pm northguineahills:

I've heard OF Kullak, just not his music, Brandts-Buys is new to me, and I'm a sucker for anything pipe organy.

Vonnegut: a bunch of his short stories were turned in to the PBS film "Between Time and Timbuctu", which is great. Happy Birthday, Wanda June and Mother Night are also out there as films.

But the time is right to make The Sirens of Titan - please cast Jeremy Irons as Winston Niles Rumfoord.

It is pronounced that way, I heard him pronounce it at BAM once.

Hey! Sirens of Titan is set to be a TV series!
Avatar    Tue. 9/11/18 8:00pm βrian:

Yes, re Reich's name. I only discovered that after years of mispronouncing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 8:00pm melinda:

I never had a Vonnegut immersion. But I did fall for a Vonnegut fake-out in college. Someone wrote in chalk on the sidewalks of the Pentacrest (U of Iowa's equivalent a quad) that Vonnegut would be speaking there at a later date. After a large crowd had gathered the prankster responsible announced from the steps of the old capitol building that we were all suckers and ran off. I saved the campus newspaper photo of the assembled crowd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 8:01pm melinda:

Wait what is the correct pronunciation? I missed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 8:01pm melinda:

Reich?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 8:03pm melinda:

Like Robert Reich.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/11/18 8:04pm northguineahills:

His parents probably pronounced it the anglified way.
