I used to see Smokey in the health food store, in Sherman Oaks, in the late 80s-early 90s

chresti, Did you know East Side Records in Los Feliz? Short-lived, but a great store.
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 10:23pm geezerette:

Wow, Amofen!

Chresti, that's amazing! I saw Mr. Blackwell at a Dick Blick in Hollywood once. Not nearly as exciting.

This is like private eye movie soundtrack from late 60s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:25pm chresti:

I remember...platypus, on Hollywood, and a store across from LA City College
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 10:25pm Little Danny:

This may sound obvious but you don't wanna be surprised by a tumbleweed. I was running on a desert trail one day when the wind shifted and was flattened cartoon-style from behind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 10:26pm Little Danny:

Also they're spine-filled, spiteful things
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:27pm chresti:

My ex's parents and friends knew Mr. Blackwell
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:29pm chresti:

Aaron's records, was often visited...on Melrose
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:30pm Dean:

Oh, yeah, Platypus! Totally forgot about that place. Anyway, East Side was largely an outlet for a classical music distributor, Harmonia Mundi. One weekend I purchased 50 CDs at once, all substantially discounted.

Oh, hell, yeah, Aaron's! One of the best.
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 10:30pm geezerette:

How funny! He was very annoyed when the clerks didn't know who he was. The words, "Mr. Blackwell" were spelled on the back of his jacket in rhinestones.

Almost cried when Aaron's closed.

Coltrane, ahhhhh...:D
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:34pm Dean:

Same here. Same for the original Moby Disc in Van Nuys. What a store.
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 10:37pm geezerette:

Moby Disc, haven't heard that mentioned in lifetimes.
?There's a possibility that Amoeba in Hollywood will close. Sigh.

  Thu. 10/11/18 10:41pm Dean:

Wha?! Amoeba Hollywood opened the year after I left LA, naturally (as did Al's Bar). The one here in Berkeley has downsized considerably over the years.

Moby Disc c.'75 was the joint for progressive rock. My buddies and I would spend weekend days traversing LA County to go there from the east end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:41pm chresti:

I used to go to Rhino in westwood a lot
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:42pm Dean:

Yeah, me, too. I believe there is still a Rhino in Claremont, independent of the original store?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:42pm chresti:

Pooh Bah in Pasadena
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 10:43pm geezerette:

There's a Rhino in Claremont. That's not exactly close!
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 10:43pm geezerette:

Oh,Dean , you just said that!
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:44pm Dean:

Heh, Pooh Bah, the old Pooh Bah. Once I entered the store on Walnut and the guy at the register--long hair, Bermuda shorts--announced, "Here comes the guy who pays my salary." I had a bad habit of going there frequently.
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 10:45pm geezerette:

That's a GOOD habit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:47pm chresti:

nowadays, I shop at Amoeba in SF when up there-much easier because we can walk there
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:47pm Dean:

When one is relatively independent and free of financial obligations, it can be a good habit. I used to hang out at high-end stereo stores, too, but not so much anymore. The financial risks are palpable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:49pm chresti:

You must of bought a lot of records!
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:50pm Dean:

I did, and I do. My kids only occasionally starve. (I have CDs still sealed from that East Side Records splurge, which was...mid-'90s?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:52pm Scraps:

h’lo
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:52pm chresti:

Poo Bah's and Rhino were reliable sources of Jamaican, R&B, Poo Bah had much Doo Wop, and WEIRD stuff
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:53pm Dean:

And Zed in Long Beach, owned I believe by the founders of Island Records...or some close relationship? The Zampelli brothers?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:55pm chresti:

oh and African...Barton's on my way home from work when I worked at Hollywood Park (rip)
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:55pm Dean:

Poo Bah had classical, jazz, rock...the gamut. I remember eyeing the Tapscott LPs, several volumes, and wondering whether I should go for them. I didn't, and I regret the choice.
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 10:56pm geezerette:

Independent stores like that are fun and the counter people know so much. I miss that, but always searching. Still find gems occasionally.

GODDAMMIT

STREAMING PC YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 10:57pm coelacanth∅:

the rhino where i live has a fairly pathetic "out jazz" selection, and an almost non-existent asian music selection. the usual reggae...etc.
there's a slightly better record store in town, though not by much.

this is all good news, as i can't afford to buy now anyway.
  Thu. 10/11/18 10:58pm Dean:

Chicago's Jazz Record Mart died a few years ago. I miss it. Only made it there a couple times.

oh god, I almost forgot...Peaches, in Hollywood
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 10:59pm Scraps:

I think I spent thirty years of spending money on music. It kept me from getting ahead, and you can say that was bad. On the other hand, now, I’m disabled, poor, and can’t get ahead anymore: but I have 10,000+ records, and mostly I’m satisfied.
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 11:00pm geezerette:

Un bidden auto updates are wrecking my Mac too. Really a problem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 11:00pm doctorjazz:

Horace Tapscott LP's-not much Tapscott available when I've searched, that's sad to hear...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 11:00pm coelacanth∅:

i have my one laptop set for "never update" and the other for "prompt me before installing updates"
  Thu. 10/11/18 11:00pm Dean:

Licorice Pizza on Sunset, across from the Whisky. Used to hang out there in the late '70s, the punk "era." Chris Ashford, who produced the first Germs single, worked there. Was a hoot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 11:00pm Little Danny:

Hey everybody. So sorry about this. So much swearing here.

So the reason this happens is because the ONLY time I open my streaming PC is an hour before this show. So then the week of updates and smouldering resentment that my PC harbors gets to express itself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/11/18 11:01pm chresti:

The Rhino in Clairmont was pretty watered down compared to it's mothership
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 11:01pm Little Danny:

The thing is. I can turn the updates off. I just forget EVERY SINGLE WEEK.
  Thu. 10/11/18 11:01pm Dean:

I think I mentioned this on another comment board: I loathe the internet. Vint Cerf, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, all those other jerkoffs, get an F in my class.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 11:08pm coelacanth∅:

it's not the internet itself that is abominable, it's that it's in the hands of humans (and human-programmed robots)
snow leopard showed that a computer can be compatible with life to a fairly high degree, but that scum steve jobs saw that they weren't going to rule the world that way. so that was the end of that.

it started ducking out at the end of Doug's show
  Thu. 10/11/18 11:11pm Dean:

Guns don't kill, people do. Well, yes, people do the killing...with guns. To my mind there is no "internet itself." And I agree that whatever the stream is spilling out just now is terrific. Not David Ware, Brotzmann...who is it?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

what if you forced it off; reboot then turned off updates before they start again?
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 11:17pm geezerette:

Danny, I'm so sorry man.
  Thu. 10/11/18 11:17pm Dean:

Yep, that's how Windows updates. Downloads all the crap, then after a restart installs it.

Vandermark, like Braxton--have you looked recently at braxtonhouse?!--is so prolific that it's hard to gain expansive knowledge of his output.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 11:18pm Little Danny:

oh neat it's at 1%

It doesn't work coel, alas. I've tried that before. I can start in safe mode but networking and audio capabilities get tricky

Dear computer, you are, ..."A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; a
base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited,

lily-livered, action-taking knave, a whoreson,
glass-gazing, super-serviceable finical rogue;
one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a
bawd, in way of good service, and art nothing but

@geez: there won't be an archive most likely! Unless Audacity does some sort of auto-save. I'll ask Doug, though. I seem to remember there being a sort of lesser-fidelity backup that the station is continuously recording from the stream.

Hey Danny, your playlist had been "finished". I clicked the thingy to change it back to live.
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 11:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Dean 11:02: Douglas Engelbart's mouse had five buttons which you would "chord" by pressing in various simultaneous combinations. Far more sophisticated than what the Apple introduced later with its overly simplistic single button.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

...you probably know more about these things than i, but if you can change it to "prompt before updating" (or whatever) then you can postpone the update 'till after the show; then download updates immediately following the show, turn off computer then back on again at some point before your next show to let them install.
...? just an idea from a novice.
anyway i hope you get some sleep tonight
