Dean, when was the last time you smoked weed?
  Wed. 9/11/19 10:16pm Dean:

More than forty years ago. Never amounted to anything. Besides, I don't enjoy inhaling smoke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:16pm Funky16Corners:

I haven't smoked in YEARS (maybe decades?) but I remember it being quite potent.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 10:17pm Erica:

Seriously Larry, will you consider adding "Stoned in the Bathroom" in the show?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 10:17pm Erica:

If not this episode, a follow up of it?
  Wed. 9/11/19 10:17pm Dean:

Once, I seem to recall we did angel dust, which isn't marijuana, of course. Even then, no effect.

Just a hypothesis. Would love to test it rigorously.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:17pm Funky16Corners:

I don't have it on hand, but I will get it for the future.

Okay, That's fine, but as you know, today the stuff tends to be, well a little on the strong side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:20pm coelacanth∅:

there probably are in fact people who have a physiological block to the effects of certain, many or most mind-altering substances.

Are you one of the few that don't feel any effect from pot? Or maybe you had alfalfa instead@Dean

Yeah, but strong x zero = ???

I’m listening Larry but not feeling so great as of the last hour. Hope everyone else is doing well.

Matt, was it something you ate?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:24pm Matt from New Orleans:

Could be. I was in the shower and got overheated and felt lightheaded. Not sure if what happened after was due to something I ate or not.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 10:25pm Erica:

Thankfully I chose not to intoxicate myself, especially since my stomach couldn't handle it.

Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 10:35pm Franco Twinkie:

Quite awhile ago I stopped getting high at parties because I could never accurately gauge the nuances of conversation. Back in the day, I would always wonder after the fact, if I had stepped over the line. Now I always know who was the guilty party.

The same only different @Larry

My wife has definitely seen me drunk. Fortunately I am a happy drunk. As are my brothers, until you mess with is in a public setting, at which point we will be happy to take you outside (or at least we were when we were younger).

Diggin' this Tremeloes song.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 10:46pm Jeff Ash:

@coelacanth It's on their "Come Together" LP from 1970. Also released as a single that year. Both on the Liberty label.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 10:48pm Franco Twinkie:

I grew up next door to guys who were dealing heroin. When I saw kids I knew from school over there, I knew they were in trouble.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:48pm coelacanth∅:

the one rule i set for myself early on in my career as a professional celebrator is that i don't mix different substances. i like getting buzzed-drunk (but not hammered) and getting high but to do both i just get fucked up and i do not want that.
(i applied this as well when i occasionally did other things too, besides alcohol and herb)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:49pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:50pm coelacanth∅:

yeah Franco i know several people on the horse; and *did know* several more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

I didn't get high until I was almost out of high school, but I made up for lost time over the next 5 or so years. I honestly don't have the energy for it anymore. I get a lift discovering new music, reading and cooking, so I guess, bury me now?

Cool cover of Just Dropped In...!
Oh, and hi all!

Lots of fun covers of "Just Dropped In." Another good one is by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:54pm chresti:

that's a good rule, if I drink, it can't be mixed, and with cheeseballs@coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:54pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Doc! This is not technically a cover, though it's not the first recording. This is the guy that wrote it, Mickey Newbury. Jerry Lee Lewis recorded it first, then the First Edition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:55pm coelacanth∅:

for a few decades i smoked <twice/year; but now i smoke to get high maybe once/month. and every night when i'm home, but not enough to get high...just to help sleep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:58pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - That Sharon Jones cover of Just Dropped In is great!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 10:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Larry, this afternoon I went over to the place we use to live to pick figs. Afterwards I hung out with some former neighbors and discussed the possibility of tripping again. For me it kind of hard to say yes, no or maybe. Once Chresti and I were at a party in Topanga Canyon and this guy showed up with a bag of acid. He gave me a few hits, I put them in the freezer when I got home and then forgot all about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 10:59pm coelacanth∅:

chresti, "cheeseballs"?!

...and i will go back on that to say if i ever smoked too much, (which would be very little for me) -which hasn't happened in a decade or 2, an alcoholic beverage would help bring me to earth again.
but never the other way 'round.

Smoke...too...much. You're right. Never noticed before.
Listened recently to a couple younger adults repeatedly getting deep deep into their shared affinity, quotes, trivia, etc, related to Sponge Bob episodes., and it occurred to me that in an earlier day for lots of guys, maybe girls, too, Python was a comparable well to keep going back to.

i was just going to say if i was told it's hash i would not have accepted it.
- nothing against hash or the effect of it, except the coughing and chest pain! i won't smoke it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:12pm doctorjazz:

THC definitely affects different people differently...me, I get anxious, definitely has an effect, but not one I enjoy (interestingly, that wasn't the case at first, but after a while it was the regular response). Had to do with genetics and predispositions...I've known some to become schizophrenic, others who've smoked for 40 years and still enjoy it.

There's a well-established coffee multi-shop and roaster company around here called Coffee By Design, often self-and-popularly called CBD. So, yeah, they've got some complications and confusion these days. People calling for the wrong product. I believe they sued someone selling the oil products from another region for a commercial name that infringed.

Dean, I read constantly and my knee is still totally fucked up. Can you suggest a book that'll let me forget my pain?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:29pm Erica:

Oh well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:29pm coelacanth∅:

i wonder how Matt's doing
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:30pm Erica:

I figured "I Had Too Much to Drink Last Night" would fit the show perfectly. Maybe next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:30pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, Matt, if you're still with us, check in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:30pm coelacanth∅:

...yeah i read every night before sleep and still awaken in pain in the morning.
am i reading wrong?
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:31pm Franco Twinkie:

The Man version of Codine is way over the top, but I like the cover of the album.
  Wed. 9/11/19 11:32pm Dean:

I like the Man version of "Codine" *because* of the cover.

Reading that kills pain? You could do worse than Boswell's Life of Johnson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:32pm Funky16Corners:

From the days when you could get off on over the counter cough syrup
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:33pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ve just been zoned out listening. Afraid to move from where I’ve been. I’m feeling better now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

Excellent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:34pm coelacanth∅:

glad you checked in
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:36pm doctorjazz:

Love this Van Rink! (Saw him do it in some Village clubback in the day)
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:37pm Franco Twinkie:

Ha! Boswell. Yes, I like the part about fucking the whore until she sqweaks.
  Wed. 9/11/19 11:38pm Dean:

To each his own.

High art - low comedy.

Dave Van Ronk played a few gigs at a little tavern in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, when I was going to college there in the late '70s. He was in his 40s at the time. I was clueless and never went to see him.
  Wed. 9/11/19 11:40pm Dean:

If you're gonna play VU, you gotta play The Osmonds "Crazy Horses"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:40pm doctorjazz:

The best tune (Heroin), with some of the worst drumming/drum sound ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:41pm Funky16Corners:

That's Mo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:41pm Funky16Corners:

@Dean - I do not and you can't make me! (maybe another time, though...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

haha. Mo tucker made sucking at her instrument revolutionary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

I'm friends with her son on Facebook (completely unrelated to the VU). He's a nice guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:44pm coelacanth∅:

...but you could play everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey by Fats!
(or not...but it *is* really good)
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:44pm Franco Twinkie:

This really resonated with me the first time I heard it in 1968. Next door they were shooting up. My mom squirt the hose over the fence at them while they were tying off. This voice came over the wall that said "Hey lady, don't water over here, we're working." We still say that and crack up!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:45pm Erica:

Ow! My ears.
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:45pm Erica:

And to think 1969 was an experimental year in rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - That's funny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

i'm curious how you came to be facebook friends with Mo Tucker's son
...i know it's not my business.
  Wed. 9/11/19 11:46pm Dean:

Oooh, this makes me think of Kiri Te Kanawa doing Cole Porter's "Cocaine." Or the bit from Blazing Saddles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

@C - He's a fan of the soul show I do. I only found out about his Mom way after the fact (last name's not Tucker)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:47pm doctorjazz:

Chet and Bley, never heard this, really nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

This is old, busted up Chet, yet still compelling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:48pm coelacanth∅:

that's cool
  Wed. 9/11/19 11:48pm Dean:

Er, "I Get a Kick out of You."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

That too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:49pm doctorjazz:

1985, that was way past his matinee idol days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, you can hear his false teeth in the way he sings, but he had gotten some of his trumpet chops back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:50pm doctorjazz:

@Coel, isn't that Fats cover on Uncle Michael's premium?
  Wed. 9/11/19 11:51pm Dean:

Wow...in fact, Kiri might not have recorded "I Get a Kick..." I just felt like I'd heard it some time ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:51pm Funky16Corners:

I'm not sure. I think I've played it here before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:52pm coelacanth∅:

dr. i think so.
but yeah i think i first heard it on testify!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:52pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thank you everyone. Larry you helped me recover. Have a great night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:53pm doctorjazz:

Thanks Larry, kept me from getting some stuff done, but it was fun!
  Wed. 9/11/19 11:54pm Dean:

OED finds "strung out" in this sense in 1959!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:55pm nostrangerer:

Just in time to see what I missed hearing. Will listen from the archive. Interesting show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:55pm chresti:

Thanks Larry!

Thanks, Larry! Great show!

Great theme Larry. Sorry about the requests and lack of chat.

Thanks Larry! have a good night everyone
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:58pm still b/p:

Only quaffed/huffed second half of show, but even the shorter pour/puff had its effect and was glad to be under its influence. Thank you.
  Wed. 9/11/19 11:58pm Dean:

Dug it!
Avatar Wed. 9/11/19 11:58pm Franco Twinkie:

I did dig it. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:58pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:59pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - Not a problem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:59pm Funky16Corners:

@Matt - Feel better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/11/19 11:59pm Funky16Corners:
