Hiya, Little Danny! Loving the NC6 spin!
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:09pm coelacanth∅:

hmm, am i a goofball or a tripster?
i haven't dropped acid in over 3 decades so i guess i'm a goofball.

gotta go under the radar now, mother-in-law is in town and i must be present once again. but listening!

Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:14pm Franco Twinkie:

This I must find! Is it on Chimminyville?
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:14pm coelacanth∅:

this reminding me of a track on wonderwall music. maybe it's the lovely distorted piano.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:15pm Franco Twinkie:

He must have been there. It really captures the noir Saigon.

Clearlight! Alan Brackett gave them the name Brain Train.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 10:28pm Little Danny:

@Franco: Have we talked about Clear Light before? Totally doesn't surprise me that you have some knowledge

washing dishes, paying bills, etc, but still listening...

NGH: Good! Let me carry a bit of your load if I may
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Alan told me that one July 4th he was on acid and rode a skateboard down Edgecliff in Siverlake, a very steep street, jumped off and slid about a hundred feet standing up and he got a standing ovation from people on their front porch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 10:33pm Little Danny:

Amazing
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:39pm Franco Twinkie:

Chresti lived on Edgecliff before we got together. She also lived on Fargo and Echo Park, The steepest street in L.A. One Easter I stopped at her house before I went over to my folks. I had a pie in the car that was cobbler after I got to the bottom of the hill.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:44pm Franco Twinkie:

Plasticland was also a line of little houses and building for your HO train set from Germany. They also had a set of tiny hippies that came in a little box.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 10:44pm chresti:

I love wonderwall @coel
  Thu. 5/9/19 10:49pm Dean:

Checking in, I read, "hippies that came in a little box." So now I'm checking out.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:50pm coelacanth∅:

chresti i already have the album cued up for later (probably tomorrow)
  Thu. 5/9/19 10:50pm Dean:

Still have my wonderwall. Stupidly, sold electronic sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 10:51pm Little Danny:

@Dean: Hey bud! Stick around, you'll learn to love us, even the hippies!
  Thu. 5/9/19 10:52pm Dean:

('twas a joke, a juvenile play on the verb...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 10:52pm Matt from New Orleans:

Danny I’m going to keep listening but take my leave from the thread

Have a good night everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 10:53pm melinda:

I love the concept of a tiny hippie set in a box.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:55pm coelacanth∅:

Franco when i was (one time i was) in san francisco i came upon the windiest road. i didn't know about it but my companion did.
is the steepest street in la windie too?
(i mean, the steepness is why the windiest was made so windie, after all)
  Thu. 5/9/19 10:55pm Dean:

Lombard Street, big tourist attraction
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:57pm coelacanth∅:

i'm imagining tiny hippies in a box making plans here:
i.pinimg.com...
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 10:59pm Franco Twinkie:

Except for the windie part, Lombard is just a normal street with a lot of motels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:00pm chresti:

Haha coel. It strikes me counter intuitive to have hippies living in Plasticland, unless they're in jail
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:04pm Franco Twinkie:

Fargo is a straight drop. Laurel and Hardy rolled a piano down Fargo in one of their shorts.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:07pm northguineahills:

Ok, done w/ enough dishes and bills for tonight. Now is when I try to remember what tracks in the last hour to clickystar.
  Thu. 5/9/19 11:08pm Dean:

I always figured the L&H piano schtick was a function of George Lucas's brilliant special effects.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:08pm Little Danny:

Well done, NGH
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:10pm northguineahills:

I think I'm the only person who has only been to the SF and the Oakland airports, as the only places in the Bay Area I've been.... (at least I've visited L.A. proper [as a kid])
  Thu. 5/9/19 11:11pm Dean:

You've seen it all, ngh. Trust me.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:12pm northguineahills:

Ok, is nova scotian whiskey new scotch? Anyways, going to take a shot anyways (crappy Canadian whiskey FTW!)
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:13pm Franco Twinkie:

It was Stans job to ride the piano if I remember correctly. Maybe it was both of them. Can you imagine Ollie taking it all the way to the La Brea Tarpits then falling in?
  Thu. 5/9/19 11:14pm Dean:

"Can you imagine Ollie taking it all the way to the La Brea Tarpits then falling in?"

No, I can't. It would have been a mess, without question, but not a fine mess.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:15pm Franco Twinkie:

Hardy har har!
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:15pm northguineahills:

I want to see a piano playing contest, a la soap box derby downhill. Just mic each piano and put the pianists in bubble wrap...
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

i'd like my bubble wrap to be mylar please

Y'all are killing me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:18pm Little Danny:

the GOOD kind of killing, that is
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:19pm Kris Holmes:

Ivy Joe is underrated
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:21pm Gaylord Fields:

@Kris Holmes: And not to be confused with Ivory Joe Hunter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:21pm Little Danny:

Yeah but pretty stiff competition at Motown (and Detroit in general) in those years. Hi Kris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:23pm Gaylord Fields:

Or his Motown contemporary (plain ol') Joe Hunter.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:25pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, how about The Boston Pops blended with Destruction Derby? That I would watch.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:26pm northguineahills:

Just visit piano graveyards, and give them a fitting exciting end like Ross Bolleter (the Ozzie composer who does compositions for ruined pianos).
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:26pm Kris Holmes:

Many people confuse Ivy & Ivory it is true
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

wow, just looking at pictures and reading about lombard street and now thankful it was not jammed with tourists when we were there. i don't think there was another vehicle on it at all when we drove it down. waiting in line to drive on it is not something i would've done; and being practically bumper-to-bumper on it would've taking any fun out of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:27pm Little Danny:

Joe Hunter? New Motown name to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:27pm Gaylord Fields:

And Ivy Jo Hunter and Joe Hunter were both Motown session keyboardists at the same time, to make things even more confusing.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:27pm Kris Holmes:

We lived in the Echo Park/Silverlake/Los Feliz neighborhoods for a minute

Coel, I have a picture of the family sedan on Lombard with no other cars in sight in 1966, with my head visible over a box of kleenex.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

post it!
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:33pm northguineahills:

Ok, passing out. Thanks again, LD & friends!
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:35pm coelacanth∅:

if i'm remembering correctly who i went down it with i was there in 1993, around ...august? no indication that it was a tourist attraction, except there was a sign somewhere saying it was the most crooked road on earth (something like that)
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:35pm coelacanth∅:

gnight ngh
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:37pm Franco Twinkie:

At the other end of Lombard by the Presidio was this place called Clown Alley. They had a machine on the counter that sold boxes of matched for a penny. I would stock up there, since I was very interested in starting fires back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:39pm Little Danny:

Thanks Gaylord! Interesting that he was slightly older than a lot of his Funk Brothers
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:41pm coelacanth∅:

ah, the good old days -when there was no shortage of unscrupulous store owners willing to sell damn-near anything to children.
  Thu. 5/9/19 11:41pm Dean:

San Francisco has always struck me as a bullshit town. The exceptions -- City Lights, maybe a restaurant or two, William Stout's amazing architecture bookstore -- prove the rule. I've lived a half hour away now for going on twenty years. I almost never go there, and when I do it's not because I want to.
  Thu. 5/9/19 11:42pm Dean:

But then Chicago bores me to tears, and Manhattan is at best quaint.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:43pm Little Danny:

Hahaha, Dean. You are so Dean.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:44pm coelacanth∅:

i was surprised at how snooty and spoiled the supposed "punks" were in downtown sf
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:46pm chresti:

Shirley Temple's daughter lived there, she was a snooty punk
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:47pm Little Danny:

That's poetry, Chresti
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:48pm Franco Twinkie:

The funny thing about that Clown Alley(there was another one in North Beach) Phil Lesh said that after a day of tripping in the woods in Marin, The Dead would stop there for burgers before a show in town.
  Thu. 5/9/19 11:48pm Dean:

Yeah, that's me, but it's also this independent guy who entirely agrees with me.

LA punks, in my experience, were not at all snooty. That's what I loved about the scene. Anybody ... including me! -- could be part of it, because "being part of" was acknowledged as bogus from the get-go.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:48pm coelacanth∅:

for the record, chicago didn't impress me either. by that i mean it was a disappointment, as i was looking forward to it.
lots and lots of "yuppies" jogging and rollerblading and clogging up the sidewalks near the trendy coffeeshops; and extremely unfriendly drivers, very impatient with someone who had tags from 1000 miles away who clearly was unfamiliar, just looking for a place to park mid-morning on a sunday -before giving up and driving toward pa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:49pm chresti:

SF is a party town. It's crazy on Halloween and New Year's eve.
  Thu. 5/9/19 11:50pm Dean:

I suppose if parties on Halloween and NYE evince "crazy," then yes, SF is a party town. But so is every suburb ever.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

one of the primary reasons i revisited san francisco more than once was to shoot film in golden gate park, in the nursery
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/9/19 11:53pm chresti:

It's always been a party town, since Gold Rush days, at least.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Even if it is going down the digital crap hole, there is still loads of fun to be had there. I know, I'm there all the time.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:54pm coelacanth∅:

don't you guys live in or near la?
Avatar Thu. 5/9/19 11:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes. But Chresti family is there.
