David - It has that double M logo, doesn't it? I remember seeing in on a brief tour stop there for a gig in 2005.

The old one is now used variously, with a supermarket and other large stores, an indoor soccer center, and other stuff.

all kinds of words -

In good King Arthur's days
He was a merry king
He threw three servants out of his house
Because they wouldn't sing


In good King Arthur's days
When we served under the king
Lived a miller and a weaver and a little tailor
Three jolly rogues of Lynn

Because they wouldn't sing
Because they wouldn't sing
He threw three servants out of his house
Because they wouldn't sing

Hey Stanley. The timetable moved by one minute, easy done.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Stanley:

I need the buffet car. Just got out of a long call from a client questioning my treatment of their payroll over the last 4 years. Had me sweating, so after assuring her all's okay, I had to spend half an hour trawling through emails to ensure I acted correctly on the instructions. Phew! If there's any mistake it's not mine! Where's that drink?

It's cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey, I believe is the derivation of the band name.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Michael 98145:

hmm ...

‘Old palmer, I pray thee,
Pennaunce that thou wilt giue to me.’
‘Penance I can giue thee none,
But 7 yeere to be a stepping-stone.
‘Other seaven a clapper in a bell,
Other 7 to lead an ape in hell.
‘When thou hast thy penance done,
Then thoust come a mayden home.’

Yes, a great band name as well, I find.

Hi Coela.

Hubig, well here it is I suppose. But a fair point about the randomizer. We may be heading for a full uninterrupted year of only Middle Eastern music at this rate.

Well, Hubig, my random-number generator for my guess has given me Egypt, so maybe that will land for you!

Egypt is the pick!

if i thought it influenced the universe (aka the random number generator) i'd guess central african republic, as a challenge...
i'm not sure they allow music there, besides the national anthem

Hey there, Sem!

dishonorable middle finger salute (or a two finger salute, if one prefers) to any country who can't muster a random road segment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm coelacanth∅:

hey Sem... if the requirement is ~18 feet then the doorguy must've been drunk when i got through
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm David Dichelle:

Sure, why not the old C.A.R.? The only countries that fall short are extremely small with too few musical recordings for me to put anything together that makes sense.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Brian in UK:

Sem, that is only for the big dipper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm coelacanth∅:

hear hear chris ...or an enjoyable on for that matter
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:43pm chris in the redwoods:

ok, ok, small countries exempted... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm coelacanth∅:

but then some tiny countries have a wealth of great music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm David Dichelle:

Yes, Niue was the biggest and happiest surprise for me so far.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Handy Haversack:

That's basically the plot of the wonderful novel Space Opera: if your species can't muster one great song, then galactic civilization doesn't need you. There's a Eurovision-style competition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm coelacanth∅:

David @142 of course, if you know how to find it. i had little luck
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm David Dichelle:

Loads upon loads of translations of the Vysotsky song here: wysotsky.com...
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:49pm chris in the redwoods:

oh, cool, Handy. thanks for the tip on the good read.
  1:51pm Marie:

Hey, this is making me think of Greek music and reminding me that I am going to Greece in September! I booked the trip in the middle of a cold night in January (I live in NYC). Digging the show, David--thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm David Dichelle:

My pleasure, Marie, and happy travels!
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:52pm chresti:

By the Rising of the Moon, from some Irish drinking songs album my parents had. (not sure that was the title), for your birthday, David.
  1:53pm Marie:

Diving in and out of work here--that book sounds really interesting, Handy. The makings of a movie or tv series.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:53pm dutchtheo:

Hello, David and the subway band! My guess Suriname!
Avatar 🚂 1:54pm TDK60:

I guessed that earlier dutchtheo, but care to join me?
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:55pm chris in the redwoods:

i know i'm in the right place when i want everyone's guess to be the correct one. Columbia is still my pick, though.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Yvang:

Last minute guess for the road : India.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Brian in UK:

After marie's comment can I add Marina by Mikis Theodorakis sung by Maria Farantouri. I cannot understand a word but always find it very moving.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Handy Haversack:

About the Battle of the Boyne, chresti!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm coelacanth∅:

so if a region becomes a different country (politically and often, therefore, culturally)
- and with a new name, does the old country get included in that nation's music?
(even if it's banned, or obliterated from readily available historical record?)
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:56pm dutchtheo:

Ah, today TDK60?! I join you, share the prize
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:58pm chris in the redwoods:

woohoo!
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Handy Haversack:

Whoa!! Chris nailed it! Unless he's disqualified for guessing the university ...

Chris got it! One of my fave authors is Gabrial Garcia Marquez (Columbian)

Very exciting.

hehehe, only been guessing Columbia for the last few months, it feels. playing the long odds. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm David Dichelle:

coelacanth∅: I'm just going with whatever the current boundaries seem to contain - trying not to overthink it myself.
Avatar 🚂 2:05pm Bas NL:

@Chris. Every random road should take you home one day.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:06pm chris in the redwoods:

love that. yes, Bas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm David Dichelle:

I realize that the arbitrary boundaries are very flawed, but this is a random way of getting around the whole world, bit by bit.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:06pm chris in the redwoods:

a bruja is a healer, if i'm not mistaken ..
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Brian in UK:

Marie, One Hundred Years of Solitude is in the pile of books to read soon.
  2:07pm Marie:

@ Coel., mm hm. I got turned onto him in college. Have you ever read any Mario Vargas Llosa?
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Stanley:

a female wizard, maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm David Dichelle:

Yes, perhaps a shaman?
  2:08pm Marie:

@ Brian--good for you--it's really amazing in so many ways
Avatar 🚂 2:08pm Bas NL:

Nothing arbitrary about you finding all those great tracks, David! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm David Dichelle:

Thanks for your request, Chresti (just catching up).
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:09pm chris in the redwoods:

cumbia! ay ay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm David Dichelle:

And thanks, Bas, it definitely sends me to different places I might not normally go.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Carmichael:

@chresti, Rising of the Moon is a traditional song about the 1798 rebellion.
Avatar 🚂 2:10pm Bas NL:

Cumbia dub? Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm coelacanth∅:

David @206 right on

Marie he's been mentioned to me before and is on the list. so many books so little time
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Threemoons:

Whooo boy. Just had a lunch break. Was sick of my own cooking. New branch of a gonzo pizza/grinder place looked good. Behold, kung pao chicken pizza. Amazingly satisfying in all the wrong/good ways--all the sugar, all the protein, all the fat, all the cheese, all the salt, all the savory....aaaah.....
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Handy Haversack:

I'm going to head to the station again tomorrow -- thinking I might be able to walk up to 2nd St. Bakery before tucking into the envelope stuffing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm David Dichelle:

Thanks for all your help over there, Handy!
Avatar 🚂 2:19pm TDK60:

Ah, will miss ya tomorrow, Handy. I asked Scott; all filled up this week. Maybe next week...

Exactly Pseu!

Avatar 🚂 2:21pm TDK60:

You're welcome. Handy, the Noggin and I did some stuffing last week under the stern direction of volunteer sergeant Scott. (Kidding, not stern!)
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Threemoons:

@DD alas, working, so no beer...yet.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Handy Haversack:

I guess three at a time is the limit, TDK60?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm David Dichelle:

Glad you're able to help this year - I know the skeleton crew had a tough job of it last year.
Avatar 🚂 2:24pm TDK60:

Not sure, Handy as that was my first time during the pandemic. Working in Monty Hall allowed us to work at distant tables.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Yvang:

Wow ! some columbian afrobeat !
Avatar 🚂 2:27pm TDK60:

I wonder if there is a Fela Kuti influence here, or coincidence.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Yvang:

Might be
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm David Dichelle:

Yes indeed - and surely no coincidence!
  2:28pm Marie:

@ Coel--I totally hear you! I've heard that there is a word in French that means--all the books you have that you have not read yet. Ciao all--going for a quick walk on this beautiful day. Thanks again, David!
