Hi Kurt! Mini Minos!

Good evening; gotta hit the sack soon, here for a bit...

double dose of minotaur
...do 2 minotaurs = 1 complete human + 1 complete bull?

Greetings and thanks for being here, Kurt
  Thu. 5/16/19 10:06pm Dean:

"complete bull"? You might want to rephrase the, coelacanth∅.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:07pm Kurt Gottschalk:

haha, complete bull. i'm good with that.
good evening, everyone!
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:09pm coelacanth∅:

haha, wish i'd realised that before posting i would've put a ... before "complete bull"
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:10pm Kurt Gottschalk:

in france, they call that a "banister moment," coel.

Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:11pm coelacanth∅:

really! do you know the origin of that?
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:12pm northguineahills:

Ok, haven't heard this Bob Ashley before,....
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:13pm coelacanth∅:

ah i see. thanks Kurt!
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:14pm Kurt Gottschalk:

this might be my favorite of ashley's operas. certainly his most sonically abstract, anyway.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:14pm northguineahills:

@Kurt: So, an example of "The jerk store called and they are out of you?" (Constanza joke is old, as am I).
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:14pm Kurt Gottschalk:

coel, yeah, see the link i posted. the idea is, you've left the party, you're walking down the stairs (apartments are sooo parisian) and you think of the _perfect_ thing you should have said.
  Thu. 5/16/19 10:15pm Dean:

During law school I hosted a listening party at our apartment during which we listened to Improvement in its entirety.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:16pm coelacanth∅:

yes i think this must be my favorite Robert Ashley track
(to be honest the only thing i've heard of his -so far- that i don't turn the radio off for!)
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:16pm coelacanth∅:

...but i actually like this!
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:17pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ngh, exactly re: jerk store
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:18pm coelacanth∅:

Kurt, my Life, it seems, is just an infinitely repeating banister moment
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:18pm Kurt Gottschalk:

and watch for the new version of 'improvement' to be released sometime soon. i don't know when, but i'll be advancing a track next tuesday afternoon, filling in for pseu. really fantastic.
  Thu. 5/16/19 10:19pm Dean:

Ooooh, good to know! Will advise a friend of mine for whom Improvement was the gateway drug to a full-on Ashley addiction.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:20pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it's a recording from the recent run at the kitchen, which was so good. the cd will be on lovely music, ltd.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:20pm TDK60:

..not being contrarian, but going to sleep; (hope I didn't forget to say something...)
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:20pm northguineahills:

I somehow got lucky and found Ashley's "Perfect Lives" vinyl box set in a junk store in Bed-Stuy. A live recording....
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:22pm Kurt Gottschalk:

"perfect lives" is also my favorite ashley.
most ashleys are my favorite ashley.
  Thu. 5/16/19 10:23pm Dean:

Jeff G. played a track from Perfect Lives last Sunday, I believe.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:23pm TDK60:

..or, maybe I'd be more lucky to forget to say something...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/16/19 10:24pm Doug Schulkind:

This was so much better than Ashley's earlier opera, Mylanta: Acts of Porcelain.

Hey-O! You've been great. I'll be here all week.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:24pm Kurt Gottschalk:

doug, i'm laughing and i wish i weren't.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:25pm northguineahills:

@Doug: Should we try the veal, and tip the waitress? (and there goes the budum shh....)
  Thu. 5/16/19 10:27pm Dean:

Doug is operating as the latest among the long line of revisionists that began with PDQ Bach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/16/19 10:29pm Doug Schulkind:

Sounded a bit like "Let's Do the Time Warp Again" in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/16/19 10:33pm chresti:

goodnight TDK60
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

i had trouble letting Maggie go too, but in the end she made it easy.
  Thu. 5/16/19 10:34pm Dean:

And the intro to this Marquess of Kensington resembles Nilsson's "One," which I listened to as performed by Three Dog Night just before tuning in here.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:37pm coelacanth∅:

i might well not be able to access the internet where i'm going so in case of that i thank you now Kurt. Thank you Kurt.
  Thu. 5/16/19 10:38pm Dean:

If you haven't already heard it, run -- don't walk! -- to acquire this recent release by pianist Eric Lu: http://www.genuin.de/en/03_k.php?k=733 Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, gorgeously performed and recorded.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 10:38pm northguineahills:

Could swear I was listening to Gorecki last week....

Gonna nap, will keep the sound on, thanks Kurt!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/16/19 10:57pm chresti:

Love the wrong speed version.
  Thu. 5/16/19 11:00pm Dean:

Level on Kurt is way low for me. Others?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/16/19 11:00pm Doug Schulkind:

And so to bed with me. (I need my beauty rest for the morning's drumgiving.) Hugs and kisses, everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/16/19 11:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Level sounds fine to me.

yes, thanks. there was a tech delay but it should happen tomorrow.
  Thu. 5/16/19 11:31pm Dean:

Jeemus, I have this Jarman/Jenkins record and I do not remember this.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 11:32pm Kurt Gottschalk:

last track. i had forgotten it as well.
  Thu. 5/16/19 11:33pm Dean:

I'm grateful that you somehow unforgot it.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 11:35pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i went through all my jarman solo albums after he died in january. i have had good feelings about them but hadn't heard them in a long time and was surprised how little i remembered on the later ones. really wonderful music in there.
  Thu. 5/16/19 11:42pm Dean:

You know, Roscoe is playing at Victo this week. I heard him not long ago with Tyshawn, who is also playing at Victo this year, in a home in Berkeley. The performance was beautiful. But what struck me most was time I spent chatting with a woman who showed up with her son, a high school student. Turns out she is Lester Bowie's widow.
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 11:43pm Kurt Gottschalk:

oh wow!
  Thu. 5/16/19 11:44pm Dean:

It was an unadulterated "wow."
Avatar Thu. 5/16/19 11:44pm Kurt Gottschalk:

yeah, victo looked really tempting this year...
  Thu. 5/16/19 11:45pm mzzmm:
