There was quiet a bit of swearing just now in that place name ;-)
Avatar 3:26pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Hey GG, I have been gathering library music now for a while and I would like to see some more info on the tracks you play in general. Label, year.. Just because it gives me more handles collecting. You think that's possible? I mean, if it is too much of a hassle, just leave it. it's not *that* important.

Hey there

Phillippe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - Of course!! I try and do it as much as I can. I sort of fell out of the habit but I'll start doing it again next week :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi there Phillippe! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Mr Fab:

for you non-Southwesterners, you can literally drive 100 miles without seeing a gas station. PLEASE be careful should you travel thru the desert. Be prepared, and don't go off the trails. Europeans are sometimes fascinated with the desert and it's heat and a number have died.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Phillippe:

Hey Hyperdose!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I am severely snake phobic so the thought of being stranded in the desert terrifies me!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Phillippe:

You don't want to visit here, DJGG. In the summer I see a snake every 2 or 3 days
Avatar 3:29pm Paper Kosmonaut:

I once held a medium sized python in a zoo. It was oddly warm and comfortable.
Avatar 3:29pm spacebrother:

@ Fab - Always take blankets, as much water as you can carry, and snack food like nuts and trail mix and energy bars. And sunscreen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Phillippe - <shudder>
Avatar 3:29pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Trail mix - for leaving a trail?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - No no no no no. And no. Nope. I'd rather see cake in the rain ;-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:30pm David (in London):

GG, dessert over desert, that's a motto to follow.
Avatar 3:31pm spacebrother:

I have hardly seen any snakes in the desert, but I don't actually live there. They pretty much don't care about you, unless you bother them or surprise them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was in a zoo in Germany and the handler came out and *removed the snake and fed it*. I was so scared that I was completely paralysed and crying (silently). My friends had to carry me out. :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@David in LO - Amen to THAT!!!
Avatar 3:31pm spacebrother:

@PK - no, animals would eat the treats!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Mr Fab:

GG, i was walking with family down a road in Arizona and we came across a rattlesnake that had been squished by a car - the same road we had just walked in the opposite direction before we turned around. We missed Mr Rattler by just a few minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - YEESH. No. Lol
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Phillippe:

Garter snakes, black rat snakes, rough earth snakes, and brown water snakes are the usual suspects at Maison Bastille. A couple copperheads have been spotted in mulch piles in the neighborhood, but I've yet to see one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We get snakes of a sort in the UK - adders mostly. There was one at the garden centre where I used to work and I ran BACKWARDS when I saw it.
Avatar 3:33pm spacebrother:

I think I've seen more run-over snakes than live ones. And pre-run-over ones sunning on the road.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Again. No. Lol
Avatar 3:35pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Olé!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Mr Fab:

You can hear coyotes howl at night. And GREAT star-gazing. i drove with my daughter last summer out to lay on our backs and watch a meteor shower.

But again - stay on the roads, it's still the wild west out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - Nice and jaunty! :-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Phillippe:

I stepped on a couple smaller ones last year by accident and inadvertently caught a big one in my minnow trap. They all perished, sorry to say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - See that part sounds lovely. I'm totally down for that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Phillippe - :-(
Avatar 3:36pm spacebrother:

I go off the roads every chance I get! Prepared if it's very far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is genuinely the only reason why I've never seen Alice Cooper live. Lol
Avatar 3:37pm Paper Kosmonaut:

St. Vincent's Rattlesnakes comes to mind.
Avatar 3:37pm spacebrother:

I almost got stuck on this last trip, but I knew I could walk back to the main highway in a couple of hours or so.
Avatar 3:38pm Mike Rogers:

I saw two raccoons walking down the street the other early morning. I was so surprised to see them, and they me. I stopped to stare. They stopped to stare at me and a moment later, they walked on their merry way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - I suppose it's being sensible really. be prepared and all that! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mike - That sounds quite sweet :-)
Avatar 3:39pm spacebrother:

Damned Boy Scout training.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Phillippe:

I was unprepared for the number of snakes when we moved here. Many have relocated on their own. We bought the house from a woman in her 90s who had stopped giving a damn about the yard since she was in her 70s. They were everywhere. Once we had the yard cleared, several of the neighbors were mentioning they'd seen their fist snake in years. Imagine that? We even had a couple in the basement
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Mr Fab:

you're a brave man, Greg! If you're not with a child, I guess you can take those chances. i'm still a bit wary of anything natural.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Phillippe - My goodness!!
Avatar 3:40pm spacebrother:

I used to feed raccoons my leftovers when I lived in Topanga Canyon..
Avatar 3:40pm spacebrother:

@ Philippe - Sounds like they enjoy your house!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Mr Fab:

don't know about Japan, Mike, but racoons here are getting HUGE. They are pretty much evolving into bears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You want to go careful with raccoons - they've clearly just done a bank job with those masks on ;-)
Avatar 3:40pm spacebrother:

The Kelso dunes is a WONDERFUL place.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:41pm David (in London):

Have we have any javelinas yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@David in LO - Don't think so! :-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Phillippe:

@spacebrother we have a fragile truce going on at the moment...
Avatar 3:42pm spacebrother:

I saw a HUGE javelina while hiking in Arizona once. It just looked at me and didn't get up. Luckily.
Avatar 3:43pm spacebrother:

@ Phillippe - I don't know what I'd do with that many around. Disconcerting to be sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Mr Fab:

Li'l Fab had a fave book when she was younger: a version of the Three Little Pigs set in Arizona called "The Three Little Javelinas."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Mr Fab:

this all reminds me of the wonderful book that Greg was lead writer on : www.goodreads.com...
Avatar 🎸 3:46pm Domenic:

This Indian Rose track works well with the mysterious nature of the narrative.

@Mr Fab - That's on my Amazon wishlist :-)
Avatar 3:46pm spacebrother:

@ Fab - Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Dom - Thank you! :-)
Avatar 3:47pm spacebrother:

@ Fab - I have that wonderful Javelina book. They sell it at all the tourist places in the Southwest.
Avatar 3:49pm spacebrother:

@ Georgy - That sounds like a UFO sighting! Was that Ken Layne's writing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Well spotted :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - This whole show is two chapters from the Desert Oracle book :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Mr Fab:

I like the name of the town 'Pahrump.' Sounds like a cartoon sound-effect.
Avatar 3:51pm Paper Kosmonaut:

LOL! my cat just tried to eat an olive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I had a lot of fun saying it ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - Lol!! I can imagine their face! ;-)
Avatar 3:52pm spacebrother:

I need to get back in touch with Layne. I think he styles his personal appearance based partially on Abbey.
Avatar 3:52pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Has the town Pahrump a suburb called Pum-pum-pum?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - His podcast is genuinely outstanding :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - And all the people are disgruntled and say "harumph" a lot ;-)
