"Utopia o Caralho" is from a great new project - all the notes and sounds (drumbeats, music, etc) are fashioned from animal noises.

Morning Amanda

  6:24am @julielinor:

“Skunkish vibe” 👍
  6:25am Toothgrinder Tom:

Because animals usually aren’t ‘bad,’ they’re just doing what they evolved to do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25am Amanda:

(lol just to be clear I mean that is a good vibe, because I love cute fat skunk)
  6:26am Rob fom Maryland:

Thanks, Jim the Poet. I must visit the greatest city in the world some day, instead of driving through or past it on my way to lesser cities!

@Jim the Poet, I thought Pawnee, Indiana was the greatest?

Amanda, interesting about "Utopia o Caralho!". I wondered how it fit in with the show

i don't know if it's skunk mating season, but i saw a lot of the poor little things on the side of the road this past week or two.

jim, i googled beaver kits and they do have umbilical cords when born so your rendering with belly button is accurate.

Gosh, Jim could do audiobook recordings.

@julielinor, so happy that Crumble is a fan!

i always loved the mosaics in the astor place station, beaver imagery. but sorry john jacob astor made his money off their fur - they needed it more.

Abba Dabba honeymoon is about a chimpanzee
  7:33am @julielinor:

We have beavers in Scotland - conservationists are reintroducing, but fighting with landowners, who want to exterminate, rather than move them. I’m on the conservation side.
  7:34am Rob fom Maryland:

Could it be a Barred Owl if it's a wild bird? Where was it recorded?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36am Amanda:

Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn - near Fulton Street
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36am PaulRobeson1920:

That beaver in Jim’s drawing is missing their top hat!
The tail is spot on, very beaver like!
  7:36am Rob fom Maryland:

@Amanda, are there a lot of trees anywhere nearby?
  7:37am Jersey Jim:

Bad Animal wasp update from NJ:. The venom and itching is gone a week after my encounter with a few yellow jackets protecting their ground nest. Then i discovered a soccer ball sized hornets nest hanging off edge of roof on 2nd story when cleaning gutters. No stings this time.. i think hornets are mellower
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37am Amanda:

Yes, it was in a backyard in an area with a lot of backyards with trees. So, fairly sparse but there are trees.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:39am dale:

paper wasp nests are beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40am Amanda:

@Rob I think barred owl is a good guess! It was kind of a whooping sound. Was during the day, though
  7:42am Rob fom Maryland:

@Amanda, thanks! Maybe (maaaaybe) a Barred Owl if it's a wild bird? I should probably listen to the calls again but I don't want you to play them again and we're getting ready to head out
  7:42am Toothgrinder Tom:

There was an article in the paper here about the beavers in Scotland and the enmity of the farmers towards them. Also in the southern Midwest of the US black vultures are terrorizing newborn calves and other livestock but the farmers’ hands are tied because apparently black vultures are a protected species?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44am PaulRobeson1920:

There is that beaver! Cute

Nice pants
  7:44am Rob fom Maryland:

I have heard Barred Owls along the C&O Canal near the Potomac River west of DC calling at different random times of day so they can call during the day if in good habitat
  7:44am Jersey Jim:

@dale, this paper nest looked like it was woven with alternating layers of tan and light brown fiber
  7:45am Rob fom Maryland:

@Jersey Jim, I'm glad you've recovered

In hindsight I don't think ducks have four legs. My apologies to ducks
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:46am dale:

jersey jim. paper wasps then, not hornets. they'll leave you alone if you don't poke the nest with a stick.
  7:47am Rob fom Maryland:

Sorry to mute the station Amanda & Jim the Poet but the trauma of hearing Disco Duck all those times all those years ago hasn't gone away. Plus we have to head out shortly

Excuse meee Post hardcore

Love you guys great show always
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:48am dale:

and they'll split come cold weather. you can take the nest down then.

Disco Duck - been a minute since I’ve heard that.

Conditioned Operations, Breath Sensation

There is a cosmic butterfly before the eye. An astral dragonfly before the ear. Terrestrial maggots in the brain.
A curve in the nerve and a whirl of whirls without.
Vapor paper writing upon itself, names for lost souls (Tropical thunder Ellis Island). Letters propagating and forming animalistic durations of habituation.

Tendency spoiled with agreement. Change lost within itself. A human born into worldly systems.
