  12:18pm yetibob in the car:

Howdy from Texas! I'm not posting while driving ... just stopped to check in. Please play some nice driving music for me, David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Handy Haversack:

Did you have a guess for Random Road, YB? I realized after you signed off we should have checked with you while you were still in the motel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Carmichael:

Where are you going, Yeti?
  12:19pm wye bee:

i can't run my program so i'll just wing it and guess - USA! (that's on the list, right)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Handy Haversack:

Very cagey, David. But my randomizer meets yours and says: Japan!

YB, it's battle of the twentieth-century empires for us.
  12:21pm why be?:

Carm - today Albuqurque, tomorrow Phoenix, after that who knows?

Hey YB - sounds like fun - happy to join you out there! And yes, the US sure is on that list.

why be? Are you on the lam?

Rambling has changed a lot since those days.
  12:25pm headcleaner:

*woosh* goes my heart when I see that Interflug plane!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Handy Haversack:

A fish story about a ram from an island of anglers and shepherds?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm David Dichelle:

Headcleaner: I always enjoy passing down that street myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Carmichael:

I wonder if the Irish song An Poc Ar Buile fits in here? Same story, basically.
  12:28pm yb:

chresti - if i were, would i post publicly about my location? ;-)
  12:28pm rw:

I've seen that ram.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm chresti:

yb, we won't tell.
  12:29pm yb:

ok, gotta get moving again, i appoint Handy as my delegate to answer any further questions. Handy - just make up stuff if you don't know the answer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Handy Haversack:

It's gotten me this far, YB.

Have fun!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm chresti:

OK, Handy, why is yb on the run?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Cmurtha:

I forget does the Randomizer allow for nations that don't exist anymore and fringe cases? I am going with Gabon
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm David Dichelle:

Hello LOT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Carmichael:

@chresti: Gumball Rally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm David Dichelle:

Carmichael: I don't think they're related but I just had a very quick look at it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm David Dichelle:

Cmurtha: Some fringe cases but they so need to exist today. Other fringe cases I had to remove from the list for unviability (Pitcairn, Vatican City, etc.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Handy Haversack:

Gabon is definitely on the list, Cmurtha. Cockaigne, less so. It's the ISO-3166-1 list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Michael 98145:

I assume YB is headed for the wastelands of TX
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Cmurtha:

So we'll never have a Soviet East German Disco? Zodiac is crying haha

I take the random Interflug to Cuba...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm coelacanth∅:

greetings David and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm David Dichelle:

Hubig: Not really on the list on its own. On the other hand, nearly every other Roud set is Scottish-based even if today's wasn't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm David Dichelle:

Hello Coel!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Handy Haversack:

I guess there's a chance Scotland will make the list before David finishes it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm David Dichelle:

Stanley: You were a step ahead of me - and she sure does!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Handy Haversack:

And, by the same logic, Vatican City and Pitcairn have about four years to get a musical tradition together!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm David Dichelle:

I might do a later series of places that have been guessed but weren't on the list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm coelacanth∅:

i thought i saw vatican city on the list,no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Handy Haversack:

coela, yeah, but David said it doesn't have enough native music to fill up an hour. Population 800!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm spodiodi:

disqualified for lack of music, coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm David Dichelle:

It's on the list, but doesn't really have its own music (as far as I can determine). Palestrina maybe, but even that is a stretch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm spodiodi:

i was able to find some, but mostly what you'd expect: choirs, masses, religious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Threemoons:

We did Estonia at some point, yes? If so, know that the individual barrier islands of the area have some interesting subcultures also.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm coelacanth∅:

cheater!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm David Dichelle:

Yes, there is also a choir or two based there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm spodiodi:

there have been a few masses
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm David Dichelle:

No Estonia yet as of right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm coelacanth∅:

and a choir boy singing for his supper
Avatar 12:58pm Hubig Pie:

I wish the randomizer would pick The Lebanon cuz that would be moom-taz
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm David Dichelle:

The randomizer still hasn't taken us to the Middle East or South America (yet).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm spodiodi:

i was ready to stick with VC until the bitter end... alas. so, my new pick shwll be Argentina! 🇦🇷

there's enough variety of music

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm David Dichelle:

Michael: Sans doute!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm David Dichelle:

Coel: I agree in principle but thought this would be the most straightforward and impartial way to do a random selection. Once we're through with these 230 or so, who knows...
Avatar 1:27pm TDK60:

Coel- The Scots are not on their own, they have needed the paternal care of the English to their south. (Hoo!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm spodiodi:

coel, resisted trying to choose China (in anticipation of china eventually claiming all what they believe belongs to China)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Handy Haversack:

coela, we need to put the guy who does the voiceover in the intro to Transpacific Sound Paradise on the case. He seems to have a healthy understanding of countries.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm David Dichelle:

Spodi: I will certainly focus at least in part on minority regions when we get there.

Though Scotland is not on the ISO list, several "British" isles are: Man, (old) Jersey, and Guernsey!
Avatar 1:39pm TDK60:

Handy, I think those islands have semi-autonomous status from or within the UK.

Funny how people say Jersey for New Jersey but never York for New York.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Handy Haversack:

Maybe because it's already a unit? "N'Yoahk."

If you said York, someone would ask whether you meant the old or new York.?

...when you think of the relation of Vietnam to US. Music history - & vice versa - the potential explorations & expositions of contexts & subtexts seem endless...

i love vietnamese guitar! they modify the frets to create the pitch bending effects in this track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm spodiodi:

i think i can hear Johnny marching home again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Michael 98145:

oh! this is great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm David Dichelle:

Hey Will - it is indeed great!

(As Michael said)
Avatar 2:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Will fascinating ! Hollowed out to be like sitar ? A bit like Yngvie ??
Avatar 2:19pm Will in Norman:

yeah, but more to resemble traditional lutes they have in vietnam. many east asian lutes have raised frets to allow for playing semitones more easily

spodi correct reportedly :

Avatar 2:21pm Will in Norman:

you can search for 'Guitar phím lõm' (the vietnamese name for that kind of guitar on youtube to see & hear examples of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm fred:

I think the pitch bending also refers to the Dan Bau

this sounds almost Korean

I'm tempted to add the Roud number for Johnny Comes Marching Home.
Avatar 2:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx Will ! Sounds wonderful.
I fiddled with a sitar once - & my guitar felt like dull brick after that... never tried pedal steel with all the levers either...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Doug Schulkind:

Enjoying the Rouding and Roading, David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm David Dichelle:

Hey there, Doug!

@BUK: How are the chooks?
Avatar 2:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Someone said if you go to Vietnam now & ask about 'the war' - they say - which one ??...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm David Dichelle:

Good evening, Brian!
Avatar 2:37pm βrian:

I wonder, is French spoken much anymore?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Brian in UK:

@βrian, good thank you, in mid season form to quote P G Wodehouse. Seven chooks, four eggs per day, not a bad average for these old gals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Little Danny:

This is great.

What can we say about today? It was a "No, on second thought I'm not going to to out into the crappy NYC weather and do crappy errands, with the virus still raging no less, today. Instead I'm going to throw me together a quick, tasty meal and listen through to the end of Continental Subway (even if that quick tasty meal quite doesn't match the tribute country)" day.

Hey David!

Let's have more days like today!

We have had frosts for the last few nights but this evening is a delight. If I was an Impressionist painter I would try to encompass it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Brian in UK:

Despite Viet Nam not being one of our many colonies, there are a variety of their restaurants in North/East London.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm David Dichelle:

Thanks, Spodiodi, see you!
  2:48pm headcleaner:

What's amazing to me is not only that the U.S. gets involved in all these pointless forever wards... but that after all that billions of dollars spent, all those bombs dropped and all those lives extinguished and hearts broken... and all the blather in all those ideological "debates" about that war...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm David Dichelle:

Brian: We have more Vietnamese restaurants than nearly every other ethnicity in Leipzig, partly the legacy of Soviet-era migration.
  2:50pm headcleaner:

... very, very few of us had any idea what these people were *like* on a simple, human basis. How they lived (other than being "poor"), what their hopes and dreams were... or even what kind of music they listened to

Ignorance is not bliss.

Oh, visiting a friend's grave in Bronx's Woodlawn Cemetery the other day, I saw Duke's gravestone. I was surprised by its small, humble size.
