Could Patti Smith really not have known from the get go that Mapplethorpe was Bi/other??? Not a criticism just a question... in her autobiography she says/implies [I do now remember]she did not at first know... Not a criticism just a question..
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:02am fred:

In the Meyers clip, the visual for the "zodiac killer" bit was a hopscotch picture (doesn't make much sense without it)

Yeah, Fred. I had a photo of the hopscotch thing, but couldn't find it.

Hello Morphe. Shamefully, I've not yet read Just Kids.

Brian D - I almost never read autobiography but it was given to me ... it is a really good read... I have the copy so when I get back to NYC, I'll drop it to you via the sidewalk sales ... someone will put it in yer mailbox ...

I remember going to a Warhol exhibition some 30 years ago, only to learn that there had been a VU reunion there a week before
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11am Brian D:

Thank you Morphe! @Fred, was that at the Whitney?
  4:16am morphe':

I worked with a guy at Barnes and Nobles in' 79 who was so over the top Andy admirer.. he dragged me to the Factory (2nd incarnation) .. he just fawned over Andy who sat there looking bored... I stood in the doorway waiting to escape... On a funny note .. I was one of the pricing workers for 2nd hand items at B&N .. I had a bunch of 1st edition Warhol books which I got a decent amount for at the Strand when Andy died..
  4:17am Michael of Cologne:

Good morning Brian and everyone! Great to be joining in the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Exile on Main Street's release. The Glimmer Twins did a superb job producing this album, such finesse with little tweaks, mainly from Keith.

Hello Michael! And right on the Irish Morphe. My grandmother spoke it, but my pronunciation -- what little I remember of the language -- is an abomination.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am Brian D:

We'll be getting back to Exile soon, I promise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am Brian D:

@Michael, not to correct you, but I believe Mick did the tweaking. Keith was a bit, uh, occupied in those days.

This hippie noise is way better than the Rolling Stones.

I like this Field of Fear track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Brian D:

Glad you like, Ike and Fred.
Avatar 🗒 4:44am Don in Tampere:

Good morning Brian and the Currents gang, both assisting and listening. Joining late today because we had a late gig last night. Tickled to see that the first song of the tribut to Exile was "Sweet Virginia", since that was one of the few covers we did. It was also the song during which the power went out a little over halfway through the song, but it worked out. Great track on at the moment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am Brian D:

Hello Don!
  4:48am Michael of Cologne:

Thanks Brian. As I recall, Exonmain took ages to produce. I think I'm prejudiced toward Keith's fine ear for adding subtle acoustic embellishments, whereas in my book Mick's more a fine lyrics' writer. To judge e.g. from their respective solo albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49am Ike:

Apropos to this program, tonight's choice verb correction in an academic paper is "underreport" instead of "under report". Perhaps either is acceptable, but the latter looks strange to me. This web page underlines the former in red, suggesting it's incorrect, but M-W verifies it as one word.
  4:51am morphe':

Shireen Abu Akleh ... [also held Us Citizenship]
BBC reported she was wearing both the Blue Press Flak Jacket vest and the Blue Press Helmet and was shot in the back of the neck in the space between the helmet and the
Flak Jacket. Her colleague Ali al-Samudi, was also shot in the back but survived..

The Washington Post reports that they were with a handful of other journalists 950 feet
or more from the crowd that was depicted by IDF video [GPS evidence]..

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:55am fred:

@Ike: The former does look less ambiguous to me. Then again academia has its own dialect (in part jargon, but also because many academics are not fluent in English)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58am Ike:

@fred, fortunately the jargon isn't too intense in this paper, but a bit of it (and its capitalized terms) are causing me some headaches. "The Social Reproduction Theory", or just "social reproduction theory"? Sigh.

When in doubt, go with M-W, Ike.
Avatar 🗒 4:58am Don in Tampere:

I would probably also vote for "underreport" for clarity. But then I'm legally German, and we love sticking words together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59am Ike:

Indeed, I always do, @Brian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01am Ike:

@Don, LOL
  5:04am morphe':

Don - had a great German teacher (NYC-Hunter, CUNY adult ed Eve classes) who started every class with a song.. "Soll das bier in Keller lien .... something something und du dads kriegan." I like the German word combo concept; I remember a word like "UMANHANLOSTLOSSKEITSKREIG"??? Which has something to do with the economy???
"Ich habe deutsch gelernt mar ich habe alles vergessen."
  5:05am Michael of Cologne:

Ike & Brian: I always go with OED. The American Way of sticking words together comes from the German influence, I believe. Also the sad loss of adverbial endings in American English. S'pose every saved '-ly' increases pragmatic efficiency?
Avatar 🗒 5:09am Don in Tampere:

morphe, I'm not sure I can figure out what the actual German word would be from that :D
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:10am fred:

@Ike: Yeah, sometimes the caps mark it out as jargon that has a specific meaning in that field. The sneaky jargon is when a sequence of words come to mean something else you can't piece together from outside
  5:12am morphe':

Don - nor I ....
Avatar 5:14am Lixiviated Life:

I was upstate yesterday.
Had to go to the super market for groceries. It was all very serene.

Later that day I heard someone went into a market like the one I was at, with a rifle and started shooting people.

When I heard this,
I felt like I’ve been bitten by something venomous.
Im struggling with this.
It’s staying with me

This song was one of my friend Paul's favorite Stones songs to play. I think it still is. We used to do it with the Handlebars.
