I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

when i was like 14, i heard david borden / mother mallard on npr or something, and it melted my brain. every shopping mall afterwards, i went to each record store and asked if they could get it until someone finally didn't go "mluh?" and was kind enough to track it down somehow. cuneiform cd.

just realizing right now that that was the rabbit-hole-opening album for me. huh!

  Fri. 9/20/19 1:47pm mic_channel:

Mother Mallard, yeah, I have, I think it's the first album? Self-titled, 1973 on Earthquack records. I got it via mail order from the New Music Distribution Service in hummina, hummina, roundabout mid-70s. And that's my mid-teens story. I would have heard them initially on WXPN out of Philly, which was a pretty amazing station at the time (don't bother now, but back then, heavy rotation of Sun Ra, krautrock, free jazz, spacey electronics, etceterie). Good afternoon!

Hey, even REM told you don't go back to Rockville. I used to work there at Westat
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 9/20/19 2:39pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

There is only one Skizz. The other is a Russian infiltrator or something.

Had no idea about Skizz's filmmaking until recently. I knew him from his show with Steve (last name forgotten) on WCVT outta Towson State Univ. Without whom Burried Droog would have received even LESS airplay.

You know what the most important thing in the fridge?

It would be the canned tomatoes.
