A friend gave me a fat bottle of Quiet Man Irish whiskey yesterday, coel, and it'll be around here a long time if I don't share often and generously.

Not bad for a nepotism record 😜
Avatar 10:07pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny! Moments ago I found my knit hat that was featured in a Russian movie on the Flame-O-Scope sometime last year. I saw a corner of it peaking out from behind a chair. I'd like to do a positive I.D. but I can't remember what was the date of that particular movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm coelacanth∅:

s b/p named after a movie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Aitch:

Snazzy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m just jesting Danny. I enjoyed the Light in the Attic comp that collected Packy Axton’s recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Little Danny:

TDK, still b/p, Franco, Aitch! Evenin' mornin' afternoon' it doesn't matter. You'll never need to leave this casino again.

The vw factory, maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Little Danny:

Hi Franco, I remember! I'll see if I can find a YouTube link for you. I want this circle to complete itself.
Avatar 10:10pm still b/p:

The maker claims it's named after his own Da, a bartender for 50 years, "true to the code and told no tales." But, c'mon, who's gonna see that name and not think he's trying to get the film-associative attention?

The VWs made available to the Brazilian and Mexican markets were so nice.

Thanks Danny. I was already to go back and read all the comments to try and find it.

All cars are the same. That people miss this amazes me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Little Danny:

ARB! Look I made this show for your birthday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Little Danny:

Classic Dean entrance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm ARB:

Thank you, a perfect present!
Avatar 10:16pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean you are such a fucking trouble maker.

"grrr who's ready for an argument?!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm ARB:

You gave me a present last week also with the AC Ducey rec, I found a cheap copy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

Danny I’m struggling right now as a I sort of agree with Dean
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm chresti:

Dean, haha.
Avatar 10:17pm still b/p:

They could have tried naming the whiskey "Marykate's Fortune" or "Danaher's Fist," but, what the hell, go for the bigger "coincidental" bait.
Local pub is called Bull Feeny's, named for Quiet Man director John Ford, who started his life around here. Got us a statue, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Little Danny:

Ugh, sorry, keep forgetting to update the playlist.
Avatar 10:18pm Franco Twinkie:

Any way. That VW is such a strange hybrid. Kind of like an Avanti crossed with a Volvo P1800. Coel, you want to weigh in?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm coelacanth∅:

it's true, all cars are the same. just as all pasta dishes are the same. i mean, they all have pasta, so they're all the same!
what is wrong with people that they can't see this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm chresti:

Cars are the same and cannabis doesn't have any effect.
Avatar 10:19pm Franco Twinkie:

Ignore him Coel. He just wants to make us mad.
Avatar 10:20pm still b/p:

All songs are the same. I can't tell if this one is Iron Man or not.

Franco i wasn't paying much attention and now i wish i was.
but i just got home a few minutes ago to a very cold house and i'm typing and listening and doing other things and only glanced at the movie
  10:23pm Dean:

Thank you, chresti, for recalling my *other* campaign. (I don't believe it doesn't have an effect. I believe the effect is largely placebo.)

Franco, that's beautiful. I am 100% positive that you know that I am the opposite of a trouble maker.

Anyway, I've spent today listening to Frank Zappa. I don't much like Frank Zappa. But somehow I needed to wade in the muck that is his oeuvre. You know, songs about Palmdale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Little Danny:

Korla as fuck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Little Danny:

Maya + Korla
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm chresti:

Perfecto, LD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm coelacanth∅:

who's Maya?
(who's *your* Maya?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Little Danny:

Maya Deren, the present filmmaker and actor.
Avatar 10:28pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, that song about Palmdale was recorded at the Roxy in 1973. Kid Congo and I were sitting right in the front row. We could read what the monsters were saying that were painted on Franks shoes.

Do NOT look directly into Korla's eyes or his turban jewel if you watch a video.

Hey, Coel!
  10:35pm Dean:

Damn, Franco, wish I'd been there, too.
Avatar 10:35pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny, one of my new years resolutions is to name drop only one time a show. I'll have to save my Korla Pandit story for off line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

I guess Mr Fine Wine inspired you to play that last one again

maybe a punk band

hiya coela!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm coelacanth∅:

Franco right? the red one's interesting but not too pretty
Avatar 10:44pm Franco Twinkie:

Yeah, the face on that red one kind of looks like one of those boat cars that you'd see in Mechanics Illustrated.
Avatar 10:46pm Franco Twinkie:

We will be there Danny!

We will be there too!
Avatar 10:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Little Danny:

@slug: Glad you caught Maru. He makes a cameo pretty much every show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm chresti:

I had a teacher that interned with the Eames.
ARB is correct, we will be there, LD.

@Little Danny -- he is just so freaking CUTE and he knows it, hah!
but yes -- SO WONDERFUL to see MARU when i was taking a break :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm chresti:

I somehow missed a fieldtrip to the Eames house.
Avatar 10:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, these cars are ugly.
Avatar 10:53pm slugluv1313:

@Franco -- ugly AND awful colors!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm chresti:

Puke color cars.
Avatar 10:53pm still b/p:

Yes, 80s tide of automotive ugliness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Little Danny:

Shitboxes of the boxiest order.
  10:54pm Dean:

I only just realized that you all are referring to the video. He's now trying to distinguish one car from another. It's his very effort that confirms to me my hypothesis.
Avatar 10:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Slug, yup, and for the most part, mechanically inferior.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm chresti:

Haha K cars. Compact cars were the vogue after the gas shortage.
Avatar 10:56pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, what do you drive? No judgement, but I need to know.

Dean haha
Avatar 10:56pm still b/p:

The 80s! Come for the off-putting colors, but stay for the unreliability!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Little Danny:

I was gonna ask the same thing, Franco. I'm hoping for a three-wheeled trike of some sort.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Ignore Function:

Great show, LD. That Leighton Craig track really piqued my curiosity.
  10:58pm Dean:

Nissan Versa, 2015, total piece of shit.

Nevertheless, I know that Porsches are glorified Volkswagens.

When was your birthday ARB? Mine was Monday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm ARB:

Matt, mine was Tuesday, Happy Birthday!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Matt from New Orleans:

Same to you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Little Danny:

Thanks Ignore F! Not all of Craig's stuff is that dissonant, but I dig it all. His duo Primitive Motion is a similar-ish and a fave of mine as well.
  11:01pm Dean:

For me, the very act of getting into the car is a trial. As is, for that matter, watching Astaire. Have to pause the video.
Avatar 11:01pm Franco Twinkie:

Nice! I love the boats in that lake, especially when the water lilies are blooming.

Danny in case you were curious I don’t own a car

I had a VW pick-up, diesel, many years ago. Lost it when a fucking nun t-boned me at an intersection. Mileage wasn't that great.

Avatar 11:07pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, what does Thelma Ritter say about Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits? Men wreck into her just to start a conversation? Oh I forgot, you hate all movies! Never mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm chresti:

Polanski
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Little Danny:

Yeah, Polański. Ambivalence here about whether to stream this or not, but it was just ludicrous enough.
Avatar 11:10pm slugluv1313:

aghhhhhh Two Men and A Wardrobe -- horrible, that poor kitten
  11:10pm Dean:

Didn't marry her, nor did I marry the truck driver who drifted into me on the freeway causing me to spin around on the freeway. Weirdly, the thought never crossed my mind.

I don't "hate all moves." Jesus, folks, this is precisely how we get the fake news we like to bitch about. I simply don't enjoy the visuals and, furthermore, I can't regard cinema as an art. Or I have a very hard time doing so.
Avatar 11:11pm still b/p:

Late note: Iconic house built same period as Eames house was Farnsworth House, by Mies Van Der Rohe. Check the story -- you'll come for the modernism and juicy gossip but stay for the lawsuits, failures and insults.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

Dean you’re making me regret ever admitting to have any level of agreement with you
  11:12pm Dean:

Matt, your saying I should have married the truck driver?
  11:13pm Dean:

OFFS: you're
Avatar 11:13pm Franco Twinkie:

What, I can't make a sweeping statement? Dean, you have stated more than once what low regard you have for movies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Matt from New Orleans:

Not at all. I just completely disagree with your commentary on film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Little Danny:

Well Dean I love you and love roasting you because you're so sweeping sometimes.

I just recall a donkey eye getting sliced Chresti but I’ll think about it more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

I haven’t watched that in a long time Franco
  11:16pm Dean:

One day I know we'll all be poised to discuss film in a way that includes the perspective of those us (crap, maybe only me?) who don't get it. But that day is not today.

I don't like movies. That doesn't mean I hate them. (Though some I most definitely do.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Little Danny:

Okay, sorry all, I ejected this video. Fuck Polanski. That was unnecessary and disturbing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Little Danny:

I obviously hadn't watch it carefully before.
Avatar 11:16pm Franco Twinkie:

It holds up Matt, in all it's glorious audacity.
Avatar 11:17pm still b/p:

Eye slice (of human) is Un Chien Andalou, eh?
Avatar 11:17pm Franco Twinkie:

Right.
Avatar 11:17pm slugluv1313:

@chresti -- yeah, and OF COURSE if that was done to a real dead HUMAN, nobody would be calling it "art"
same with Polanski, why did he not have these actors stone a human infant to death instead?
oh gosh, i forgot, THAT would be considered "illegal"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm Matt from New Orleans:

Yes but it was a donkey eye IRL SBP

I don't know that he actually killed the donkey.

Avatar 11:23pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny, I'm not judging, I'm simply trying to get a grasp on the difference between camp and violation.

Oh no worries Franco. No moral lines I'm trying to make. Just deeply disturbed by any images of animals in distress or being abused here. So that Polanski was a major no-no.

@Little Danny -- no prob -- just that i find if humans were subsituted, the general public would be horrified
@chresti -- yeah, from what i recall, the donkey was already dead, but still -- even before i went all vegan "crazy animal rights extremist" (hah!), dragging his dead body around like that was still so horrifying to me
Avatar 11:27pm Franco Twinkie:

I will refer to My Last Sigh by Luis Bunuel to get the low down on the dead donkey in the piano at the fancy party, and report back next week.

Avatar 11:28pm slugluv1313:

@Little Danny -- YES! this week has already been so draining
  11:28pm Dean:

Thanks, Dano59. My thing is not that I don't get some movies. It's that I truly don't get the point of cinema, of pointing a camera at something and then rearranging the takes to create some sort of rhythm or effect. Movies take from out there, where for example poems spring from in here.
Avatar 11:29pm Dano59:

I have a small scholarly book on "Animals in Film" (Jonathan Burt) that might help with some of this.
Avatar 11:31pm still b/p:

Tried an animal assist:
Removed a mouse from a garage last week. Think it was in unexpectedly-roused stupor. Just sat shivering where I placed him on a snowpile. So I took him back to a leaf-pile and kitchen compost zone, poked a hole and set him by the hole. Was gone later, but don't know if he realized his option, that he could've gone down in there for nesting environment, some food, and some heat generated by decomposy bits.
Avatar 11:31pm Dano59:

But Dean to me, movies (and momics) are almost pure art forms, able to create their own rules to tell a story or convey an experience, real or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm chresti:

Well, I think Polansky was inspired by Bunuel. Sorry for bringing up dead animals.
Avatar 11:32pm Dano59:

uh, "comics" not momics
Avatar 11:33pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, do you feel the same way about constructing a false narrative if it's called literature?
Avatar 11:33pm slugluv1313:

@Dean -- FASCINATING! i mean, i DO consider film/cinema an "art form" -- so i am interested in other points of view -- for me, it seems like many films -- the ideas/visions that generate them -- DO come from within (if that makes any sense)
Avatar 11:34pm Dano59:

For David Lynch, so much inspiration comes from within - his fascination with the subconscious. Plus it seems he was heavily inspired by Fellini (speaking of animals)

At this point I'd be more shocked if there were gloves, chresti.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Little Danny:

'tis!
  11:39pm Dean:

Lots of practices can create their own rules. That doesn't distinguish art from anything. "Convey an experience": that's an issue for me. I'm not sure good art "conveys" much of anything other than its material fact. (When I read poems, I see the ink on the page.)

To me, literature, Franco, can be false, true, neither. As above, I don't care about the truth of the relayed information. (This is one negative reason I enjoy Mailer's novel Harlot's Ghost.)

slugluv1313, yes, ideas for film come from within, but the material by definition is from out there. Filmmakers take pictures of what's out there. (Let's set aside animation or computer-generated images for the time being. I in fact love Frank Film.) They select from the universe of stuff at which they can point a camera. That isn't what a poet or novelist or even painter does.

I know, Chresti, it's primed as industrial accident scare footage.
Avatar 11:41pm Dano59:

Poetry, concrete or not, means to convey something ... and to get to you. I kind of feel sorry here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Clifffiscal:

LD...have to say I have been really enjoying your show. Going through the archives and live! thanks
Avatar 11:42pm Dano59:

I can recall seeing a few of these in shop class as object lessons in what not to do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Little Danny:

Whoa, Clifffiscal, thank you, and thank you! And hi!
  11:44pm Dean:

Before poetry can mean anything, it must be read, even if only by its author. Whether or not it "conveys" anything is secondary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm Clifffiscal:

Hi! Good to meet you. You and Evan really put together a great 1,2 punch on Thursdays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Little Danny:

@Clifffiscal: Evan's show is a big inspiration for me. Delighted that you think of our shows together.

Thanks Danny. Have a good night everyone.
Avatar 11:51pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, that's why lots of minimalism attempts to convey a purely esthetic reaction. No confusion about intention when you're looking at a block of polished metal. And if less evolved folks can't grasp the nuance of intent there, fuck um.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm chresti:

Good night, Matt.

the thing I love about CBF is, it suits my attention span. I can have it on as background until the inevitable thing (several things) perk my ears up.

Thanks Dano59. I'm glad to hear that. I strive for that kind of listening, honestly.

In the morning, then.
  11:57pm Dean:

Rothko and Donald Judd piss off a whole buncha people, for sure, Franco. Whether or not one enjoys (appreciates, whatever) their work is independent of what the nose-in-the-air pricks who know better deem the appropriate response. I would suggest that minimalists like these guys precisely do not want to "convey" anything. That is, in fact, much of the point!

Goddammit, I sure would love, just once, to have a "purely esthetic reaction."
