Ah thanks for playing this. This was my first Caetano Veloso record - i read about him in some now defunct newspaper (Arthur, which was great), and went to Other Music - this was the only CD they had of his - picked it up and its one of my faves to this day!

I read Veloso's memoir last year, and his discussions of his exile from Brazil beginning in 1969 and his time spent in Paris and London were some of the best passages. Veloso also discussed "Domingo" and his friendship with Costa, whom he rightly regards as a genius and supremely talented.

  Fri. 11/2/18 3:43pm epz:

Since when did this show become a platform for left-wing social justice? I should have known something was up when Sheila said awhile back that drug addicts should not feel ashamed. No shame = a dulled conscience. And then where does the sense of right and wrong come from? Oh well, leave it to liberals to eradicate common sense.

Hopefully they'll find a safer place. My friend in Brazil is fleeing to Portugal sadly.

Since I am in Turkey Bulent Ersoy would be a good banned artist. She is a trans woman got her re-assignment surgery done between coups in the 70s I want to say and was banned and kicked out of the country despite being a fairly big artist. Though that was all taken back and she tours and makes music there now. Though the situation is not really all that much better than it was sadly.

A while back the WFMU twitter feed (or one of the DJs) linked to an article that said, based on survey data, that the average age where people stop listening to new music is something like 34 (not sure of the exact age, but I'm only off a year or two if at all). I'm sure WFMU listeners are on the far end of the bell curve.

As soon as I see the phrase "left wing social justice", I know I am hearing from someone who is deeply invested in his fantasies of what "left wing" is. And usually, this is someone who wants to instruct people, who he thinks are "left wing", about who they are, what they think, what they believe...

Also, the new Conchita Wurst album with the Vienna Symphony is magical, overstuffed, wonderfully sung, completely mannered and absolutely pure. It's like Shirley Bassey and Klaus Nomi had a baby who because a power metal singer who only sang Barbra Streisand songs.

I love my fake eyelashes and liner. And my showgirl drag as my Dad called it. But the extreme beauty standards some go to are horrific. Now there's the extreme facial surgeries to get the V shape. They break your jaws for it.

Absolutely! But it creates an even more insatiable need for false physical perfection. Most never realize the real work needs to be on the inside. When you have healthy self esteem, good sense of self you stop focusing so much on the exterior.

My wife is a darker skinned individual, and feels pressure to use a lot of makeup at work, to keep up appearances as she feels like she's discriminated enough as it is. I got her to take it easy on weekends, unless it's a crazy special event.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/2/18 5:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

Make-up, tattoos, surgery, hair color, and all that drag… i say as long as it feels right for you, go for it. Like Sheila said, if it feels like (or becomes) an obligation, that's when there's something wrong. Capitalism thrives on insecurity. The whole system would collapse if we all just really accepted ourselves and each other.

Duolingo is good for getting your feet wet. In German, I really found success with the book, Fluent Forever, the app LingQ and speaking with native speakers on websites like italki, Conversation Exchange and Tandem. When I want to get serious, I'll repeat the process for Turkish.

Duolingo needs a text I find from what I've seen of it. It will teach you grammar up to like intermediate level and it does it well, but its not...Explicit? It just assumes you'll pick things up but its more about recognition then understanding. . Turks when you come to turkey are really happy to sit and drink tea and listen to shaky turkish (in general)

So, rather than focusing on pederasty which has been sadly the norm, broadening things to see how children are used in stories, how they are mentioned in narratives/used in narratives and I am trying to build a skeleton on which others can build on because my field has not done much of anything with history of childhood.
