Hahaha!! I must be drunk!! Been calling Brian, Alan!
Sorry mate! 🍻😎🤙
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20am Brian D:

Hello all! Glad to be back and feelin' okay. Clearly not as good as Scotty, though.
Avatar 🗒 3:20am Don in Tampere:

Dang Brian, hope you're feeling ok now. Sounds like you got a wallop from Covid if you were out for 2 weeks. I've avoided it so far but with everyone around me getting it, I suppose it's only a matter of time, since Finland seems to think one can declare a pandemic over when tired of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23am Scott67:

Actually drinking light beer, so just a day mix-up, assisted by mild euphoric enthusiasm. I can't be drunk cos I can still say that.
🍻😎🤙
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am Scott67:

Don, Finland isn't the only Country that seems tired with reality mate.
😎🤙🌏
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am Brian D:

Same attitude here, sadly, @Don. Not sure how I got it, but thankfully, vaccines work. I escaped with mild illness. Still tired, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am Brian D:

Less filling, tastes great, @Scotty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am Scott67:

& the Vietnamese stuff I drink is only 90 cents a can too Brian.

You know Fred, pretty average but I played with two of my close friends the past two days and it's been great for my mental health

This is the second chumbawumba song I've ever heard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55am Ike:

Hi all. I’m not a beer drinker but as inexpensive Asian beers go, I used to know a lot of people who would *swear* by Beer Lao. Dunno if that’s available in Aus though.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:56am Paulo AD:

Where's it from Ike?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56am Scott67:

Me too Paulo, can't believe it's them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am Ike:

Laos! Many travelers in Thailand preferred it to the Thai beers.
  3:57am listener:

no thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58am Scott67:

Guessing that's from Laos? Haven't seen it here, maybe in a capital city?
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:02am fred:

I have to go vote, back in a few
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am Scott67:

Paulo you will be able to get into Bia Hoi in Vietnam.
Brewed daily, sold in street bars & food stalls. Dirt cheap too!
🍻😎🤙
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:04am Paulo AD:

I'm drinking some shitty German lager right now
Avatar 🗒 4:05am Don in Tampere:

I usually order my beer from Germany because I can get good beer (Paolo, your own fault if you're drinking shitty German lager, since there are so many good ones....) cheaper than Finnish raindeer piss. But interestingly, a small brewery in Finland called Kukko (fullly wind-powered too!) makes some of my favorit non-alcoholic beer for weekdays and Lent. At the moment i'm fasting so it's all water and herbal tea though.
  4:06am listener:

cheers!

Love you Brian

I lied i can't drink beer that fast.

Don, we had a crate free for spending so much on whiskey haha its bitburger so it's not that bad.
Dubai has opened a brewery but..... Its 10 dollars a can!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am Scott67:

A friend of Warren & Nick's drinks at TRASH CULT. She reckons she'll bring em in for a look while they're on their Australian Tour.

That should be some night, @Scott
Avatar 4:15am Nikita:

@Brian thanks for the link 💕
Cheers everyone 🍻 I’m drinking Coopers Pale ale. Pretty popular drop here in Aus. Not my favourite, but I live in a share house and I’ve drank all my beers already 😜
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am Brian D:

We're looking at the work of the recently deceased photojournalist Sumaya Sadurni, who worked for the Guardian, AP and others: www.theguardian.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am Scott67:

Not holding my breath Brian. But she's legit about being mates. showed us some drunken house party pics of her with em. & she is Partner with Warren in a Captive Wild Animal Rescue Sanctuary in Indonesia.
Avatar 🗒 4:18am Don in Tampere:

Paolo, Bitburger is reasonably good, but there are definitely better ones. For pils, my current favorite is Störtebeker Übersee Pils. For dark, one of the faves is Schlappeseppel Dunkel, first brewed for the Swedish king in the 1600s. Probably hard to get either one in Dubai though.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34am Brian D:

Welcome Destroit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35am Brian D:

@Fred, I hope they all weren't waiting to vote for Le Pen.
Avatar 🗒 4:36am Don in Tampere:

I don't get the hate for Chumbawamba. So they wrote a hit song, so what? It was almost a prank, as I understand it, and they didn't use it to get rich. I heard that the bought a van that didn't break down every other day and most of the rest went to political causes. And somehow the idea of anarchist pop instead of anarchist crust punk is appealing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36am Scott67:

Hope not Brian!
Avatar 🗒 4:37am Don in Tampere:

My first exposure to them was around the time of "Slap!", when they played Cafe Exzess in Frankfurt together with the Dog-Faced Hermans for a total admission of 3 Marks. Was a great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am Brian D:

And the song was catchy too, Don. How dare they? ;-)
Avatar 🗒 4:38am Don in Tampere:

I used to do an acoustic guitar-mando-bass version of that song with my buddies in the Handlebars back in the day when I still lived in Germany.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:39am Paulo AD:

Don, 100% haha ill keep my eye out though
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:40am Paulo AD:

Fred, you clearly voted for le pen haha
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:40am Paulo AD:

Brian, jinx you owe me a coke
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:40am fred:

@Brian: I'm afraid many were. It's a weird one, so who knows what will happen. I usually decide at the last minute based on the mailer we get before the election, but I got nothing this time (and only got my registration card two days ago)
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:41am Paulo AD:

I miss voting :(
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:42am Brian in UK:

Hello Brian & listeners.
Just bought a second hand copy of PJ O'Rourke's Age & Guile. Given his demise how was he viewed in the US with his transition from left to right?
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:45am fred:

@Paulo: I usually start at the far left and eliminate any candidate with anti-Europe or xenophobic messages. Sadly, 5 years ago I ended up with the Socialist candidate (basically a milquetoast centrist moderate). So this time I went with Poutou, mainly because of loose ties to my favorite venue
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:47am Brian in UK:

Nick Cave does remind me vaguely of one of my favourites, David Ackles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am Scott67:

G'day Brian. 🍻😎🤙
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:50am Paulo AD:

More power to you Fred :) you're a good guy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50am Brian D:

Hello @Brian. I think O'Rourke remained "above the fray" here, which takes skill. A lot of people loved his writing, even if they didn't agree with his politics.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:50am Paulo AD:

Hiya Brian

Oh Scotty, I found a black roles and the face says fuck you. As soon as it come to me it's on the way
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51am Brian D:

@Fred, France has a tough one this time. Three far right candidates, a centrist incumbent with a poor track record and...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52am Scott67:

Hahaha! I love ya Paulo!!🍻😎🤙

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:55am Brian in UK:

Out in the garden now the sun is out. Happy days. Wish I could say the same for the Yemen & Ukraine.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:57am Brian in UK:

Brian, yes that is the impression I get. Hope you are fully recovered. Must be to get up at this mad time!!!
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:59am fred:

@Brian: And the usual 3 far-left candidates (I'm not counting Mélenchon there) who could amount to a force if they could unite, but it's the usual story...
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:59am Brian in UK:

Was this song about his son?
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:01am Brian in UK:

Fred over here Labour is pathetic with in-fighting when they should show a united front to be challenging Johnson & co.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:02am Brian in UK:

Always kind of liked the line nothing really matters on Bohemian Rhapsody.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:07am fred:

@Brian: Speaking of in-fighting champions, a friend of mine used to sit on the board of the official radio of the French anarchist federation. Cognitive dissonance anyone? I do know people in various anarchist "groups", the idea seems to be that if more than 3 people agree on anything, it's time for a split
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09am Brian D:

@Brian, from way back, still tired and coughing but able to make it in. And @Fred, in-fighting on the left? How strange! ;-)

@Paulo, thank you, man. I'm good. I don't mean to keep harping on it. Feeling very lucky.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:16am fred:

One endearing tradition is the splintering of marches for May Day. Some even march the day before or after. I once saw a parade of four guys with the red/black flag, followed by 2 police patrol cars and 3 riot police vans. The police/demonstrator ratio makes it intriguing as a tactic (not that it's one)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am Brian D:

Most people in the US don't even know what May Day is or means...
