Yesterday Once More
May Baskets - (WIKI quote) - "May Day was also celebrated by some early European settlers of the American continent. In some parts of the United States, May Baskets are made. These are small baskets usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone's doorstep. The giver rings the bell and runs away. The person receiving the basket tries to catch the fleeing giver. If they catch the person, a kiss is exchanged."
  As a couple oif listeners (and Station Manager Ken) have pointed out to me, I have some kind of 'phasing' problem with the output of my show, due to the weird configuration of antiquious gear and tangle of cords I use in the production of Dusty. I thought I had it figured out, but then Joe Egan pointed out to me that it sounds poorly during the interviews. I am trying to figure it out. I have ordered a new dual-cassette deck (well, an old one, like I always use, on EBay) and a new micro-cassette recorder (well, a new discontinued Radio Shack model that I had to track down from a clearing house online). Please let me know if you notice problems with the sound of the show. I am irked by it and trying to isolate the prob. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you listen on HEADPHONES, it should be OK. It is for me.

  At this point, police had seperated the marchers at the entrance to Wall Street. I found myself on a stretch of Broadway which was suddenly deserted, yet lined with cops. The voice you hear was coming from loud speakers positioned along the protest route, but I couldn't actually SEE the speaker. He was at Battery Park. I really can't explain it, but it was all very dystopian and surreal.

  Thank you VERY much for listening to this episode of The Dusty Show. I appreciate it. I have been struggling with some serious audio problems in recent weeks (months). A few of you have noticed. I have taken some steps to remedy the sitch, so hopefully you'll note improvement soon.

I have to say, doing this show is such a roller-coaster ride sometimes. I find myself fluctuating between glee and doom quite regularly - one day feeling on top of the world and the next like I suck and need to hang it up. The audio problems drive me f'ing crazy, seriously. It's really hard to keep this old gear operational, especially since I am a Luddite to begin with. OK ... enough whining. I hope you are still with me. Drop me a line sometime. I love hearing from you.


Until we meet again. take care my friend and ...

Always Remember ....

Clay Pigeon

Yep my husband is from Iowa, like you. Greetings: this will be the last show I listen to on US soil for 2 weeks. Heading to Paris on Saturday! Will try to D/L show w/wifi while I'm gone.
  6:09pm kat330:

@G: for "Pigeon" I'd think.
  6:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh the cab driver's making money...the meter goes even in traffic.
Maybe I should ask these people who scoff at Occupiers for a job, they seem to have all kinds of jobs to offer, the way they're talking...
  6:10pm G:

Clay Pigeon Junn. Is that Korean? :-)
  6:10pm sfrances:

@? : Every protest I've been to that's blocked routes has immediately cleared for anything with flashing lights. And we've always cleared intersections to let bus & light rail flow through.
  6:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Tom Morello! Another DustyCelebâ„¢!
@Clay: Reddi Whip, always! Cool whip is made of oil and water! Let it sit in a bowl at room temp, you won't want to eat that!
  6:12pm kat330:

@G: I sent Clay a reply email that mentioned I had a classmate -- actually -- named Clay Pigg, and he had a sister named Dolly Pigg.
  6:13pm G:

I haven't had bacon in weeks. :-( Gotta head to the store soon...!
  6:15pm Night Al:

Occupiers should organize nationally and nominate Dennis Kucinich as their presidential candidate. READ his platform on issues...
If you aren't registered to vote, and vote for a viable candidate, you are fighting a losing battle. When I talk to an occupier, they just speak of their disdain for the status quo but offer up no real solutions. Many are not registered to vote nor plan to. Sad.
  6:15pm kat330:

Our grill menu is corn on the cob, roasted potatoes (with our garden herbs) and marinated chicken breast. Oh, and beer brats to save for lunches.

  6:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Yummy! Happy grilling, kat!
  6:17pm KevinC BK:

Who the hell wants a job anyhow?!
Fuck work!
Everyone that says folks should get a job should really search inside themselves and think if they really actually LIKE their job!
  6:17pm kat330:

I did all the prep work, but Philo's the grill man. It's too damn hot outside.
  6:19pm Night Al:

Hey Clay! Have you ever heard in your many conversations, an occupier spokesman offer a candidate choice for leadership? I really want to know.
  6:19pm KevinC BK:

my problem is that, like other OWS sympathizers/participants I am self-employed and take work that I actually like
  6:19pm kat330:

@KevinC BK: I did that and decided on extreme frugality managing on freelance work and savings. Lots of folks like me doing an "early retirement" that really isn't.
Avatar 6:19pm Clay:

Katt ---Clay Pigg. Ha! I love that.
  6:20pm Minarchist:

Is far more palatable.
  6:21pm drewo:

We have entered the post-job age. We will fill all of that free time with social media.
  6:21pm Caryn:

Man, computer acting up, so just got here now. Hello all!
Avatar 6:22pm Clay:

Night Al - No. Occupy holds to that no leaders thing.
  6:22pm brycepunk:

This has been a fascinating listen. Fantastic mixing.
  6:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@Night Al: As Occupiers are reluctant to speak on behalf of the movement, only for themselves (the core chants of Occupy are the only real common bonds, and that's what it's all about). Individual Occupiers have expressed approval of Kucinich, Ron Paul, Greens candidates, some even Obama (though those deep in the movement almost never do).
Avatar 6:22pm Clay:

Scary thought, Drew. All that rectangle time.
  6:23pm Night Al:

What a waste.
Avatar 6:23pm Clay:

TY Bryce, I actually struggled with it mightily and feel it was rushed to completion .... but .... thanks!!!
  6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Caryn!
@Drew: Unless you want to forage for food, all day, every day for the rest of your life, ultimately most people would prefer a job. At least you get days off with a job!
  6:24pm Fair Labor ?:

@Clay/FMU staff: Which do you appreciate more for their sacrifices, your FMU listeners/commenters who do so on UNPAID time that could either be used for other leisure endeavors / freelance earnings OR your FMU listeners/commenters doing so on-the-job while being paid by "the suits" (or worse by taxpayers) while they listen/comment here?
  6:24pm david:

Avatar 6:27pm Clay:

Really liked him. David.
  6:27pm Night Al:

I have asked Dennis and Elizabeth Kucinich to consider running as a 3rd party candidate. No response from my letter as yet. He will be unemployed here shortly. His wife is GREAT also. I concur with his ENTIRE platform. It would be AWESOME if ALL occupiers would get behind him in an organized national movement. Any thoughts listeners?
  6:28pm david:

whole newest Immortal Tech album is great
  6:29pm Romney:

Prettyplease, start a third paty to the left of Obama and really get it ramped up. Thanks!
  6:30pm Nader:

Yeah, that should work...
  6:31pm david:

everyone's got a "occupy should do _____." It's mostly people who don't participate in occupy, have nowhere to go politically, so they look to occupy for all the answers.
  6:31pm Caryn:

Speaking of work, finally had a job interview yesterday. For a government job, incidentally.
  6:31pm Marmalade kitty:

..nehhh, get a job!
  6:32pm Night Al:

Clay is the best source of news for OWS! I can't stomach media controlled news channels. Maybe BBC sometimes.
  6:32pm Josh:

Clay. It's Debussy!!!!!! It's an arrangement!!!!
  6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Way to go Caryn!! Even if that doesn't work out, at least you're on the first step to a job!
Good evening there, Kitty! :)
  6:32pm Philo Gristle:

Much as I like Kucinich, I'd like to see a candidate who can win, and not help Romney squeeze in. It's a sad state of affairs, but I'm not seeing an easy solution.
  6:33pm Marmalade kitty:

..tut, get a job!!
  6:33pm Josh:

I'm referring to the Cy Coleman 'Reverie in Topaz'.
  6:34pm Night Al:

Ditto Philo....I'll vote for Obama again just to keep the GOP out. Unless I see a viable alternative that has a chance.
  6:34pm Philo Gristle:

@Caryn Fingers crossed! Had a gov't job for almost a decade there myself.... good perks (39 days of vacation per yr. as opposed to 10 I I have now in the US, after 7 yrs in the same job).
Avatar 6:34pm Clay:

Glad you are all hear and appreciate it. You know, I am learning as I go. it's all I can do to hang in with some of the intelligent people I talk to. Sorry i interrupted Debussy, Josh!!! Ya mean Cy didn't write it? I like that Lune tune he wrote. Thanks Al!

Caryn /// Hope it went well. Glad you showed up here!
  6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@david: If you have nowhere to go politically, but dislike the status quo, attending an Occupy event is what you should do. Taking action is doing something about it.
  6:35pm kat330:

Great news, Caryn! To Fair labor's ? point though, there's less disposable income to contribute to FMU and other charities when on-the-job productivity is compromised so that either those human resource wastes are passed onto the consumer or passed onto the taxpayers. Oh, and there's no such true thing as efficient multi-tasking research has proven.
  6:35pm Marmalade kitty:

good evening Clay, Matt & all! ::)
Avatar 6:37pm Clay:

Marmalade! How nice.
  6:38pm Night Al:

What's with these baptist preacher's sons from Michigan.
  6:38pm KevinC BK:

the public university events in Madison Square Park on Tuesday were all the best parts of OWS in Zuccotti park, skilshares, lectures, presentations, dialogue, discourse, and free food
really incredible atmosphere and use of public space
  6:38pm Minarchist:

Poor Libertarian believes that neo con Rominee is an answer. In the race of bad and worse what is a true believer to do?
  6:38pm david:

exactly, Matt. if one wants something to be part of occupy, one has to do the work, not find it prepackaged for consumption or on a cable tv channel guide...
  6:40pm Night Al:

Reality people...you can protest all you want...if you don't go to your precinct on election day and vote....you did nothing. That's how you protest in this country, like it or not.
Avatar 6:41pm Clay:

Glad you were there Kevin.
  6:42pm Night Al:

also...if you vote for a democrat president, but don't vote for democrat Reps and Senators....you just created a lame duck president.
  6:42pm david:

Night Al I hear you but that flies in the face of US history, and thousands who sacrificed their lives to very palpably make this country better
  6:43pm kat330:

@Night Al: Kucinich has always impressed me. Here's what has me concerned: I voted for Nader (wrote in since Indiana didn't put him on the ballot) in the infamous election stolen by Bush from Gore. Probably the guilt heaped on us Naderites wasn't justified, but it still has me worried for any next such time.
  6:43pm KevinC BK:

beg to differ, night al
that's not protest at all actually
it's called voting and it legitimizes the system.
I'm not arguing against it
its actually quite useful at times,
my problem is that voting happens so little.
It would be lovely to have more community control...
  6:45pm david:

of course everyone should vote, but without illusion, and not to the exclusion of other forms of political engagement
  6:45pm Josh:

Thanks for acknowledging Clair de Lune. Such a beautiful piece.
  6:46pm sfrances:

Looking forward to finding Occupy Paris when I'm there next week. Jump jump!
  6:46pm Night Al:

Yeah ...i was in the Army back in 1982....now I'm against the military industrial complex with a passion. There will be no revolution that changes are present system. YOU FREAKING GOTTA VOTE PEOPLE. The Kucinich's are your only hope...everyone else is a corporation shill crony.
  6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

  6:46pm Minarchist:

I voted for Gus Hall in 1984. Commie.
  6:47pm KevinC BK:

was that the frogs earlier?
stand up...?
  6:48pm p.l.:

help me obi wan kucinich!
  6:48pm Minarchist:

Go Clay! Turn my iPod into a proper transistor radio.
  6:49pm Caryn:

@KevinC: true, voting might not be considered a protest, but not voting is not a viable form of protest either. If you don't vote, no-one goes "wow, what a powerful statement". You've just wasted one of the ways you have of influencing things even a little. Certainly there are plenty of other ways to be politically active, but not voting has no impact other than possibly allowing someone you loathe to get into office.
  6:49pm david:

  6:49pm Night Al:

kat330...that's why I'm trying to get the OWS fighters to get organized behind him in an AWESOME cohesive movement. EVERYONE should read his issues page on his website and start stumping for him like I have. There are MANY disconcerted people who have lost a little faith in Obama as well as the rest.
  6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Jim Croce in the dumpster! I would expect WFMU to pitch him (or smash on the Air).
  6:50pm Minarchist:

Bastards! Trashing the Croce and a favorite tune!
  6:51pm david:

"trying to get the OWS fighters to get organized behind him," how specifically have you been working to doing this, Al?
  6:52pm Night Al:

KevinC BK... if only my friend...I'm just playing the game. A change like that will be incremental if at all. Small steps. This isn't revolutionary war era.....reality is reality.
