the phrase "indian giver" is like bush's "patriot act" and 3/4 of everything else he did that he gave sales-pitch titles to.

So Coel, a question from the science desk - Does cheese neutralize the toxins that occur naturally in potatoes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:17pm coelacanth∅:

hmmm. Franco, i can't find my thinking cap.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:18pm still b/p:

I just ate my potato without cheese. How long have I got?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:19pm Matt from New Orleans:

Did you eat the skin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:19pm coelacanth∅:

but, supposedly the root of the potato doesn't have a significant amount of solanine.
...if you're allergic to something it's usually the protein in that food that body won't tolerate, so nothing's going to neutralize that.

You’d need to eat 4.5 pounds of potatoes in one sitting to have mild neurological effects

When I was a child I was somehow convinced that potato skins had glass in them. I have no idea why.

With the skins I have to add

Hey geez!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:21pm coelacanth∅:

i love potatoes, and my reaction to them is not immediately (or blatantly) life-threatening, so i eat them occasionally. if i bake one, i always eat the skin, because i love it that way.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:21pm Erica:

I was told that potatoes had eyes.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:22pm Franco Twinkie:

My potato infusion happened right when the show started, so let's treat this like a control study and see what happens in two hours.

Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:23pm Erica:

Turns out the eyes are just another word for sprouting potatoes.

Oh, I ate me some skin.
The right fries -- the really good 'uns -- might get me close to the four and a half pound mark.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:23pm northguineahills:

lo siento if I pass out due to food coma...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:23pm Funky16Corners:

If anyone wants to bring me 4.5 pounds of french fries I'm cool with that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:23pm coelacanth∅:

the eyes are just the sprouts. if the potato is sprouting you absolutely should not eat the sprouts, because of solanine, and probably shouldn't eat the potato at all, because of aflatoxins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:24pm coelacanth∅:

yes, good grazing!
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:24pm northguineahills:

@coel: I eat potatoes all the time w/ eyes, I just cut them out...
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:25pm Erica:

In other words, throw the potato out.

I prefer goose fat myself but I’m sure they’re adequate
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:27pm Funky16Corners:

MMMMMMMMM
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:27pm coelacanth∅:

ngh it's okay, if you cut them off; but it means it's older, so check for spots that look a little like mold (black or white) or rot spots, and if there's that, don't cut that off -just throw it away. (or compost it)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

Larry, as an irish person (well i'm just under 1/2 irish; but more irish than anything else) i have to tell you that irish people are possibly the most likely to be sensitive to potatoes...as it was forced upon our ancestors as the primary food for so long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:33pm Funky16Corners:

I love Georgie's Hammond on this one (and Mitch Mitchell on drums!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 10:34pm chresti:

I know @coel- Franco never believes me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:34pm Funky16Corners:

@C - I am mostly Irish with helpings of Swedish and Hungarian. They must be protecting me from the potatoes.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:37pm northguineahills:

oh, I cut out any green or colored parts of the tater, but I leave the skins on after a good scrubbing.

If we only had an Latvian-Irish person to speak on the subject! :p

food coma ensuing, thanks Larry!
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:37pm Franco Twinkie:

By the way Larry, last weeks show is the first time I've ever listened to anything on the archive. You should be glad I was out of town, because I would have exasperated everyone with my opinions, musings and general Know-it-allism on Laural Canyon and it's former residents.

Not sure actually but figured you’d react to my assertion
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 10:42pm Erica:

I'm a bit Irish but more Italian and born American haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

@Matt - I used to pack the Rob Base 45 and play it back to back with the Lyn Collins in funk sets
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 10:44pm Matt from New Orleans:

I just put you on pause to go watch a little of the video on YouTube and I forgot how good it was

Should have read "selfie sticks". The insane hardware people use to suspend their cell phones so they can take pictures of themselves

A friend of mine saw Sam The Sham playing a free show in front of the city hall in Pasadena. Apparently he had become born again and no one wanted to hear his christian songs, and some guy in a gorilla suit started jumping around in back of him when he started talking about Jesus.

It's the time, of the season for loviiing!

@Franco - yeah, Sam has gone all the way over to Jesus.

Joey Heatherton, variety show regular.

i'm bummed i was in the kitchen and completely missed time of the season
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:35pm Jeff Ash:

Saw that Joey Heatherton LP in a bin of "strange and unusual" records the other day.

Sam the Sham and the Pharisees Who Are OK to Dine With Sometimes But At Other Times Are Ripe for Rebuke.

coel, how could you know if I was off key? You were in the kitchen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - It has a few cool tracks, including a Paul Williams song that doesn't appear anywhere else
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:38pm still b/p:

This -- FF doing Sly -- ALSO unexpected and unlikely and soooo strangely fun.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:38pm Erica:

And yet I hear another version of Everyday People.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:39pm Franco Twinkie:

Still b/p was that an overly long album title from the 60's? Kind of like Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

this version ought to open up the minds of white folk
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:39pm Funky16Corners:

@SBP - Those late 60s FF albums have some really interesting stuff on them
  Wed. 5/8/19 11:40pm rw:

The Four Freshmen were definitely white ones.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

did fairport convention do this song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:44pm Funky16Corners:

@C - I don't think so. Written by Joni Mitchell, covered by Tom Rush among others
  Wed. 5/8/19 11:44pm rw:

Interesting and unusual! Dion. Crazy.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:44pm Franco Twinkie:

This takes the cake.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:44pm Erica:

I love this version of Purple Haze. I discovered it on a charlie brown "black" Easter parody video. I know the name of the video but cannot say the N word for PC reasons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

Franco, the cheesecake the one i left out in the rain?
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:47pm still b/p:

Purple Hazelnut Cake.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:47pm Franco Twinkie:

A Laurel Canyon desciple for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:48pm coelacanth∅:

my initial reaction the Dion's cover was that i actually laughed out loud. but it is an interesting arrangement, even if more than a tad disgenuine, as Dion often was. (in my opinion)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

wow so many covers of this and i never heard this one, which i do like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

I like that Dion album a lot. If you ever get the chance check out the stuff that Gilberto Gil was doing in 1969/1971. It sounds like he had Dion's Purple Haze on a loop.

Thanks Larry! Goodnight everyone!

Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay the potatos are starting to work. I am feeling a little purple haze-ish just about now.
  Wed. 5/8/19 11:54pm rw:

Later chresti!
  Wed. 5/8/19 11:55pm Dean:

Have to confess I've been listening to Genesis outtakes this evening. The post-Gabriel stuff is more impressive than I would have imagined.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:56pm Erica:

Well this has been an interesting show, over too soon as usual.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:56pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, Chester Thomson was in Genesis? How long?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

Franco do you have a potato-poisoning first-aid kit in the house?
  Wed. 5/8/19 11:57pm Dean:

One tour? Two? I saw them with Thompson and Bruford. Only time I ever heard the master live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

(if not, some yellow haze blotter acid should counter your reaction)
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Chester was something.
  Wed. 5/8/19 11:58pm Dean:

Starlight Amphitheater, Burbank, '76.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/19 11:59pm Jeff Ash:

Thanks, Larry! Another good one!

Coel, I can't keep my hand out of my hair. That's how i know I'm high.
  Wed. 5/8/19 11:59pm Dean:

Bruford was (because he has retired from drumming) on-the-money musical.
