Laissez les bons temps rouler!

probly not much going on in New Orleans tho, eh?
Avatar 6:07pm shangri-lounge:

And, MB!! :)
  6:08pm Martinibomb:

@MrFab I heard it's Yard-E-Gras
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Mr Fab:

Thanx to Kitten Sparkles for reminding me of the Dreamies album. had forgotten about that one. Dreamy, indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Mr Fab:

Oh right MB, think I saw something about that. People just decorating their front yards, and you can drive by, something like that?
Avatar 6:10pm shangri-lounge:

Mardis Gras slips my mind each year! I was hoping to finally go to New Orleans (for the first time) around Halloween (last year). Obviously, that didn't happen!
Avatar 6:11pm shangri-lounge:

Yard-E-Gras also sounds kind of great though, still.
Avatar 6:18pm Constance De Witt:

Allo Shangri-La! and alles!
Avatar 6:21pm shangri-lounge:

Hello, Constance! A pleasure, as always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Mr Fab:

Tina's basslines were the unsung hero of the Heads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Rich in Washington:

Pre-Eno 'Heads were wonderful, even though I do like their Eno era.
Avatar 6:27pm shangri-lounge:

I must confess I've taken a ten year break from the Talking Heads. Until today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Mr Fab:

Ha, I know this song from William Shatner's version! This version is rather different, one might say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Mr Fab:

I won't be drinking any Hurricanes for Mardi Gras. but I did recently find some (usually surprisingly expensive) copper Moscow Mule cups for a good price at a dept store's bargain basement. Sure, I could make some in regular glasses, but that just doesn't seem right? Whipped up a batch last night, yuuuuummy.
Avatar 6:28pm shangri-lounge:

LOL. I like the idea of only knowing major songs exclusively thru William Shatner's take on them.
Avatar 6:29pm shangri-lounge:

Nice, Fab! I rarely bust out the appropriate mugs at home. But, it is nice on special occasions. Kudos to those that do so on the reg!
Avatar 6:29pm shangri-lounge:

The tiki mugs are my fine china.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Rich in Washington:

Me too, shangri-lounge! I was unfamiliar with the original assumed it was an original song for the album.
Avatar 6:30pm Constance De Witt:

Mardi Gras is all fun and games, but don't forget to respect Lent, folks! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Rich in Washington:

and while I had heard of Pulp, I mainly knew of them through Chris Morris' parodies of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Rich in Washington:

Your set's on fire!
Avatar 6:32pm shangri-lounge:

Haha, thanks Rich! I was excited about playing this one tonight. I've been tweaking it for some time.
Avatar 6:33pm shangri-lounge:

I never remember which is right. Tweaking vs. Tweeking.
Avatar 6:33pm shangri-lounge:

We all love Lent here, Constance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Rich in Washington:

I was just today reading about Iggy's solo albums.
Avatar 6:38pm shangri-lounge:

Is he promoting anything right now, Rich?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Rich in Washington:

No idea. I did see that he did something with Yoko Ono fairly recently.
Avatar 6:46pm shangri-lounge:

I've really never explored Yoko Ono's music. I only know that one Of Montreal cover of her song "I felt like smashing my face in a clear glass window".
Avatar 6:46pm shangri-lounge:

It's a banger though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah (again!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Rich in Washington:

oh wow. A cover version. I've never heard this before!
Avatar 6:52pm shangri-lounge:

It's a pretty good cover though...in my opinion?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Rich in Washington:

I really love Yoko's Fly LP. It's amazing.
Avatar 6:53pm shangri-lounge:

Okay, I'll check that one out upon your recommendation.
Avatar 6:53pm Dave the Spazz:

Diggin’ the swank noise

This IS very good. Nice!

Hey, Dave the Spazz!

Thank you, Dave! Hope you're doing well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Mr Fab:

Yo Dave! Thx for joining our monkey business.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Mr Fab:

don't know if I've heard much Bent before, but I am def bending their way.
Avatar 7:02pm shangri-lounge:

Yes, that album is so good!
Avatar 7:02pm shangri-lounge:

I can't lie - I've been looking forward to playing this Tom Jones song on air for like two months.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Rich in Washington:

A Flipper cover! ;)
Avatar 7:04pm shangri-lounge:

That ten minute Flipper song that doesn't include Moby!
Avatar 7:04pm Domenic:

Tom Jones. Hey, You fols have CD's by Seks Bomba? a Boston Band

Hey Dom, I've heard a couple of tracks by Seks Bomb? They're from the early 2000's or so?

Yes Tom, you are correct! And, why are my all my packages late?
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Scott67:

Cliff necessary ones though. Today is the last of a 5 day circuit breaker lock down. As the UK Strain has his hear. But we're on top of it so far.

Hi Scott, good day to ya!
Avatar 7:28pm Mailman Tom:

I'm familiar with Queens, NY. Mainly, the Astoria neighborhood.
Avatar 7:28pm shangri-lounge:

Oh wow, it's like the USPS holiday party here.
Avatar 7:28pm shangri-lounge:

My mail guys are good here in Ridgewood. Except the guy who rings our bell at 6:00 AM sometimes. But, I assume that's not his fault.
Avatar 7:29pm Mailman Tom:

Too much middle management at the USPS. I always say, cut the fat, not the muscle
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm coelacanth∅:

greetings shangri-La and all
  7:31pm Cliff just Cliff:

Agreed Tom, tho there are a couple good supervisors at my plant that stay on top of things & don't tolerate crap
Avatar 7:31pm shangri-lounge:

Hey, Coel! Glad to have you.
  7:32pm Cliff just Cliff:

Some of the regulars do all right too, the rest invent new ways to lollygag around all day, heh

No shangri, I've never been a carrier & wouldn't want to be around here with the winter weather
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm coelacanth∅:

i always liked that Love & rockets song...
totally mimicking t rex but somehow sounding fresh and more like a tribute than mimicry
like, cool a previously unreleased t rex song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm coelacanth∅:

hey Scott!
  7:35pm Cliff just Cliff:

I got mail handler shoulders, not carrier calves, haha
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Scott67:

Took nearly 2 months to receive my WFMU T-shirts via USPS.
Avatar 7:36pm shangri-lounge:

It does seem tough. But, I am a glutton for punishment, so I wonder if I'd like it!

Siouxsie & The Banshees .. every DJ brings something different to the mix!
  7:38pm Cliff just Cliff:

You'll get plenty of exercise, but say good bye to yr life becuz you'll be doing 10-12 hrs a day 6-7 days a week...! It's easier to get converted as a CCA (city carrier asst) than an RCA (rural), usually 1-2 yrs depending on location
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Scott67:

The FMU skellies, to their credit had it out the door in 2 days.
  7:38pm Cliff just Cliff:

I haven't gotten anything from FMU since last year, hmmm
Avatar 7:39pm Domenic:

This is monster community radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Rich in Washington:

The WFMU swag mailings have been really compromised by the station lockdown and unavailability of volunteers due to same.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Mr Fab:

Gotta say, my covid year job at the supermarket has certainly got me in better shape than I've been in for year. Nothing like being on your feet all day, always moving. Watch the pounds melt away!
Avatar 7:40pm shangri-lounge:

Whoa. Gotta grive props for that.
Avatar 7:42pm shangri-lounge:

I miss the great outdoors! I used to average about 5 miles a day just living/working in the city. Not so much right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Rich in Washington:

I was in better shape when we were locked down and I was working from home, paradoxically - taking more vigorous walks every every day. Now that I've gone back to the workplace, I'm not quite as active as I have been.
  7:44pm Cliff just Cliff:

shangri it's deffo a good job to try out if you like walking around outside, you might have to hustle cuz they'll give you all the hard routes at first tho, heh
Avatar 7:44pm shangri-lounge:

It's the opposite effect for me. I have a treadmill that I try to utilize, but it's just not the same. I need a destination! Otherwise, I love long walks.
Avatar 7:45pm shangri-lounge:

Damn, that's the way it goes for newbies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, if i get this law office job, back to sittin like a lump for 8 hours. SO not what the human body was designed to do.
  7:46pm Cliff just Cliff:

Yep, gotta break 'em in somehow!
Avatar 7:46pm shangri-lounge:

What kind of law is it Fab?
Avatar 7:47pm Mailman Tom:

I saw the Jesus and Mary Chain perform at Bedel Chapel in New Haven back in the early 90s. It really was a chapel!

Avatar 7:49pm Mailman Tom:

I hike 3 miles every day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Mr Fab:

this firm seems to do all kinds of things. Even new-fangled areas like cannabis, wine, social media?! I'm used to boring banks n things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah, the treadmill's no fun but it's great when it's pouring down outside.
Avatar 7:50pm shangri-lounge:

Wow, I miss the office landscape, TBH. Working from home is the pits. I miss the routine and the social interaction. Also, I like my coworkers?
Avatar 7:50pm shangri-lounge:

That sounds cool/interesting, Fab!

Things are beginning to pick back up again, slowly.

shangri-la @744 that's me with a bicycle. even if i say okay i'm riding downtown to the café...i'm not buying anything but that's where i'm going.
walking is more time-based. i'll put a long cd in my walkman (yes) okay it's an hour+12 minutes so i'll turn around at 36 minutes.
Avatar 7:53pm shangri-lounge:

I'm trying to listen to more podcasts -they're longer, and keep me more occupied mentally!

I definitely had better muscles when I was a baker, Cliff!

Oh wow shangri, I did that for a while too when I was in college, everybody liked my cookies!
