Does anyone have any news about he Blondie box set that was supposed to come out on Numero? They put out the Heart of Glass 12" 4 years go as a teaser and not much has been said since.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:11pm Figgsrock:

@EFD I know you would! I am especially ticked since last Thursday I put a sign next to our buzzers telling UPS and FedEx which buzzer to hit for me...and neither driver read the sign, and I had to chase the UPS truck down my street to get my shipment from Apple.

@tim I asked Numero about it on Twitter maybe a year or two ago and the response was just "it's coming," or something like that.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:15pm D Rok:

@Figgsrock: The neighbor in my building who receives the most packages has figured out that, because I work from home a lot, she should just instruct Amazon to buzz me for her packages. You wanna talk about irritating?
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Figgsrock:

@D Rok--that is annoying. Thankfully I live in a three floor house, so it's not that bad.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Handy Haversack:

If the PFurs were saying where each of these love objects lived, it would be the perfect Marathon mirror song.

Thanks for the update, efd. All good things come to those who wait I guess.

this sounded so awesome in 1980! (i still like it)

@D Rok just answer buzzer and say you want to refuse shipment...that should put a stop to it.

Hi efd and all!!! Evan, you killed it at the h&m
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Figgsrock:

@EFD @Tim I have a bit of an update on that Blondie box. When they reissued the Christmas track "Yuletown Throwdown" last November they said the masters were discovered in that box set research. And that the set had been pushed to August of this year.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Handy Haversack:

Tell your neighbor that as a strict Hurstian, you cannot in good conscience accept Amazon packages. Then tell them about the paper shortage that's crippling book publishing since so many mills have converted to making e-commerce mailers for Amazon.

sorry for not playing "Fall" before "We Love You" as the good lord intended. Maybe next time.

@tim from washington... Blondie 1974-1982: Against the Odds, is set to be released in August.

oh interesting, thanks @Figgsrock!
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Figgsrock:

@EFD @ Tim Also on the Blondie front I believe that box set digging is the reason there's a "Sunday Girl" double 7-inch with two unreleased tracks coming out on RSD.

@Figgsrock and Alvy - Thanks for the update! That's quite heartening news. I was starting to worry that there were behind the scenes shenanigans that out it on ice.

Fun anecdote: I used to date a programmer who was the primary backer for Dick Manitoba's bar, Manitoba's on Avenue B. We both had weird work hours so I would go down there after work and drink for free while I waited for BF. We also had special seats at the special concert for their comeback album.

@EFD...Thanks for playing the new Dream Syndicate single. I love this track so much and I hope you do too.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:08pm B R M:

Oh jeez! Thank you @efd!

Well, with DJ approval:

Each year, I complete a 48 Hour Movie Marathon where I watch films for 48 consecutive hours and raise money for charity. In six years I have raised over $50,000.

This year, I am dedicating my movie marathon to support Trans Lifeline. The war that is being waged against the Trans community, and particularly against Trans children and their families, has struck me as uniquely unbearable. 

We live in a society where brutality against Trans people— public bigotry, economic discrimination, social marginalization, physical violence, and literal murder- is commonly accepted. Loving families being ripped apart by political theater that has horrible, real-world repercussions, young people in other families forced into an unsafe, unwelcoming world, and ridiculous, manufactured outrage making a true conversation about changing these situations untenable— the barriers to positive change keep getting reinforced, and instead of positive action toward creating a world that loves Trans people, time and resources are spent defending what should be basic human rights. And so, fighting against organized, cynical bigotry requires our engagement and support.


I can’t win elections in places in which I don’t live, I don’t have a multibillion dollar media empire to utilize in service of compassion and empathy, but I do have you, and together, I am hoping we can give to empower those doing the work on the front lines of this urgent crisis, in order to make a tangible difference in the lives of those who need our support.

This year’s 48 Hour Movie Marathon will take place May 27-29 and my theme is SCARY MONSTERS & SUPER CREEPS, focusing on horror films as a way to grapple with the real-life monsters we experience every day (more on the politics of horror as we go).

Unfortunately, the platform I need to use is Facebook for this fundraiser (but they pass along 100% of proceeds to the charity without taking a piece) as Trans Lifeline do not have a stand alone fundraising platform.

If you are inclined, I would appreciate any support and I will be live streaming my 48 hour movie marathon in May.

Thanks @efd for the opportunity to share.

BRM - Some NPR show ??? did a sadly in-depth story on an amazing family in Texas which had their children taken away for a period because the teen was transitioning. His friends, the school, his church all were supportive. They won the case but the trauma and the lost contact has to cause deep turmoil... Idiotic Ignorance "supporting family????"

Wait--was on a call with Mom, what's this RE something from Matt Warwick?
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Handy Haversack:

I tried fantasy baseball for a couple of years, but I would focus less and less on it as the real baseball got more intense. Also (sorry, efd!), I wouldn't put Red Sox on my team, which was one of the those stands of principle that ends up causing problems in the everyday world. Which I seem to excel at.

Of course, things are less fervent now than 19-20 years ago ... but still.

Whew! Glad we understand each other.

One of my favorite trips to old (and much mourned) Yankee Stadium was the first time K8's parents came to visit after she moved here, so like 2001, probably. MAYBE 2000. Her dad's a big Cardinals fan, met Musial, the works. But they are nice Baptists who have lived mostly in Seattle the past fifty years. I take them to a Red Sox-Yankees game, day game, on a weekend. We come up off the subway, and there's someone passed out on the stairs already. We're walking to the stadium as the shouts between the fans of home and visitor get more profane and intense, and her parents' eyes just get bigger and bigger and bigger. At the tenth or twelfth mothereffer tossed around, I look at them and say, "Yeah, it's kind of a big deal around here."

And the Yankees won! Posada with the big HR as I recall.
