Hi Sheila and sophisticates!
  3:28pm Rick A:

Hello Sheila,
I hope you are having a great Friday. Our cat Dougal lost his spirited and defiant battle against cancer and heart disease last week. He was a great friend to me for twelve years and to my wife for fourteen. He was one of the most extroverted and engaging cats I ever knew.
Avatar 3:29pm -o-l-i-v-i-e-r-:

@djsheilab It's actually very good, everyone should watch it. But it's also utterly depressing.

Very glad you’re back Sheila! And I wouldn’t be too embarrassed. I’ll bet most of those WFMU stoners were more wasted then you were, they didn’t notice a thing.
Avatar 3:34pm HyperDose:

Right there with you, Rick A. Said goodbye to my best friend of 10yrs on Tuesday. Bet you a beer our fur babies became fast friends while crossing the rainbow bridge together. My sincerest condolences to you and your family. 🍻❤️

Sheila - Really love that Bedouine track. Have you played it on here before? It feels like I have heard it before.
  3:36pm Jett:

You never need to wallow in shame, don't you realize that you are the brilliant @DjSheilaB ?
Avatar 3:37pm djsheilab:

Awwww Rick A, I'm sending much love to you during this time. Losing a beloved kitty hurts so much :(
  3:37pm Rick A:

Thank you, everyone, WFMU, especially Sheila's show, is a space of empathy and support for those of us who love our four-legged friends. That is a sweet sentiment, HyperDose, thank you. Dougal's feline friend of thirteen years, Junior, seems okay though a little confused that his housemate has disappeared.
  3:38pm Rick A:

My condolences to you too, HyperDose, I hope you can find some peace in the special times you shared with your furry friend.

  3:42pm Rick A:

Incidentally, I saw the Epstein documentary. It is cogent and compelling though, yes, dispiriting, how this guy was able to manipulate so many powerful people. It's an American nightmare story.

I'm happy to report that Alvy is back in tip-top shape. He had a rough year but made it through :) Thanks for asking Rick A + Jett!

Thank you, Rick A. Just as you so eloquently stated, the empathy and support here amongst our fellow animal lovers has been an invaluable comfort.
Appreciate that beautiful sentiment, DjLorraine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'm scared of getting a fur friend & having to endure the inevitable loss - one just has to have a heart strong enuff to love. My lease prevents it as it happens... I'm too Scorpio to let go easily, tbh.

After losing our golden retriever, Leo, I couldn’t imagine getting attached to another dog. We got Pongo & I was a nervous wreck for months that something would happen. But, I found my soul mate in this boy. I will take the risk for the beautiful co-pilot I have with my ride or die buddy!

  4:05pm Rick A:

Thank you, Jett, as long as my wife and I have our memories, Dougal will live in them. Shelby, we take the risk of suffering crushing loss each time we bond with a new furry friend. It's one's choice to open oneself up again. Now we are able to channel our sense of loss through Junior, holding him a little more tightly than we did in the past.

I guess it shouldn't; however, I'm still surprised whenever, I hear stories of people invading others' spaces. That is really gross, Shelby. I'm sorry you had to experience that. The stories of white people touching Black women's hair are completely bizarre to me. However, given the sense of entitlement of white men, I suppose they shouldn't be so strange to me.
  4:47pm Lake Hiawatha Doug:

All genders have their struggles. Unattached middle-age men tend to be viewed with an inherent suspicion and looked at as weird or creepy. But the struggle for women is more embedded in history… so I would never diminish or discount it.
Avatar 4:49pm Avrilinmay:

Good evening Sheila and all !
I was replying by myself to the radio how you were not failing to explain yourself, it was immediately crystal clear ! (from witnessing it and living through similar situationS) although it is totally understandable that it feels so uncomfortable to relate it (as usual with truths and the relativity of human experiences).
Unfortunately it would take so long to talk about this while being fair to everyone in this.
I will just say something that I believe in my heart to be true, even when it seems hard to live by, hoping it might help: we should not see It as a competition between each other.
and once again , thank you Sheila ! :)))

(felt prompted to reply to this as "the pressure of numbers" during my last birthday made me go through the exact anxiety, plus it was like you were in my head since I have been thinking exactly about this ever since and up to like just earlier in the day I think ! :D)

Avatar 5:09pm HyperDose:

I can sympathize with fear of loneliness due to aging, especially as someone with dating app experience. Problem is, when you lie about your age (or anything else for that matter), you will be rejected just for the dishonesty alone. The other person instantly thinks "what else would they lie about?". It's a self-fulfilling prophecy of rejection.
  5:09pm Rick G:

After a very amicable divorce I found myself online dating in my 50’s two years ago. It never occurred to me to lie about age-they’re going to see you eventually! A woman friend had a date with a man who lied by a good 15 years, so it happens. Now I’m happy with someone I met online who is younger. By two years, ha.

Just came in from a swim. Glad to catch the last half hour, Sheila! I hate getting older! I think about my body changing, slowing down and eventual, do i need to say it! Oh man!

Hey cal! I know, for all the hard work we put in, we get THAT at the end?!!

Bad news Cal. Father Time is undefeated.
Avatar 5:35pm cal:

Yeah! But I guess its important to live NOW and enjoy the Trip!
  5:37pm Rick A:

Matt Warwick played a phenomenal Morricone-esque track from the Anderson/Tyler album on Tuesday. This looks to be the must have of the fall.
  5:37pm annette:

@cal. perfect time to swim. water staying warm yet air is gettingcool. saltier the better. i envy yoo

A refreshing swim accompanied by moments of reflection sounds like a Friday afternoon well spent!

Is mixing cranberry juice and coconut water a volatile move? I am considering this risk. I don't have any drugs here. It may be considered liquid bath salts.
Avatar 5:39pm djsheilab:

Rick A—Matt Warwick has a beautiful way with segues!
  5:40pm ShelbyG:

@ledzep: you know Ari L? He worked for the ferries. Don’t know if he’s still there.

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:42pm dreamyandseedy:

the way this set is going i'm not sure i'm gonna hear the new amber mark track! i may have to blast it afterward :)
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Bimbus Bambus:

A selection from the exactly 20-year-old Vespertine would fit right in though!
Avatar 5:44pm HyperDose:

Coconut water with a bit of pineapple juice is divine. Can't imagine cranberry would be an issue. Let us know hat happens, ledzeppelinsucks!

Coconut and pineapple. Add rum and you have a Pina Colada 🥤

@ledzep: if you’re at Port Townsend headed to Whidbey, wild behavior like that might be better tolerated there than at say Bainbridge Island, haha!

Hey Avril, It should be on YouTube. I'll check it out after the show.
  5:50pm Jocelyn:

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 5:50pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

It could be 'ash' correctly described super by 'Will in Norman', or

The 'æ' (ALT+145 on a windows keyboard) is an 'a-e ligature'. In Latin is is properly pronounced like the English pronoun 'I', but lots of people mispronounce it like 'ay' in 'May'. (Aide-memoir: the ancient Germans got their word 'Kaiser' directly from Latin 'Cæsar, yes that initial 'c' was pronounced as 'k'.)(Don't even get me started on Church Latin.)
  S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Geoffrey in Ottawa:

This has been such a beautiful show, Sheila. Thank you so much. I have enjoyed every moment of it. And, for what's worth and from what I can tell from listening to you every week, I am sure you are far from being an "invisible woman." Thank you again and have a lovely weekend.
  5:50pm Joey!!:

Gotta run, but have a FANTASTIC weekend Sheila and everyone!! Joey!
Avatar 5:51pm UncleMarty:

Known as "ash" æ used to be pronounced as ah/eh, and now seems to be pronounced as ay. Encyclopædia looks like an exception... being pronounced as ee... but is a misspelling of Encycloaedia
