& hey, check out minnesota jeff's new blog: tinyurl.com...
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:23pm Ike:

Don't check the news. Nothing good can come of it right now. Just stay here. Srsly.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:26pm tim from champaign:

I agree, Ike. I've been checking the news and nothing good is coming of it. Ugh.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:30pm common:

i tried to read it, but only got about 100 pages in...
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:31pm G:

People should just stop tuning in to coverage about shootings. The attention and publicity just encourage the nest person to do it. I deliberately stopped listening to any newstalk soon after 10AM.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:33pm tim from champaign:

What's the name of the book again, Kurt?
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:33pm Jack:

I read Ada years ago. As I recall the first 100 pages were a real slog, but then it picked up and I enjoyed it. It takes place in an alternate universe.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:35pm Honey Water:

@G: If it encouraged legislation on gun control, all the attention would be worthwhile. As it stands, yes, it only encourages the next unhinged human with easy access to assault weapons.

This Shankar set will soothe the soul...TY DJKG.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:36pm G:

There's a hell of a lot more to Nabokov than Lolita, that's for sure. Literary tidbit for the day.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:39pm tim from champaign:

I read Ada a few months ago. Not my favorite Nabakov but I enjoyed it. It was written with a lot of humor. Stick with it, Kurt.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:40pm G:

The attention causes the problem.

Anyone who wants attention badly enough to kill people will find a way around a law.

Trusting to the passage of legislation is very innocent. I've been hearing that since 1968, and I think the data are vast and definitive that those laws don't have one bit of effect on things like this. The laws just make these events feel even more transgressive to someone who is looking to be maximally transgressive in the first place.

My advice: Stop thinking about it from your point of view, and think about it from the point of view of the type of person who does this, if you really want to accomplish something, rather than just "say the right-sounding thing."
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:42pm Ike:

I don't think every person who does something like this just wants attention. Isn't that pop psychology? Violent mental illness is generally much more complex than that.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:43pm Honey Water:

G. sounds to me like you are the one with a rigid POV. I see no reason to "pick a fight" as I was not doing so.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:44pm r i s k y:

YAY KURT YAAAAAY! HAHAH!
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:45pm steve:

hey Kurt! i love Ravi
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:47pm G:

Sorry to be questioning people's religion. :-)

I just see how this cycle works -- it's been going on for decades now.

Today, right at this moment, someone out there who is angry at someone or something is watching all the coverage and looking at the huge effect the event is having in pop culture and saying:

That Might Work. Let Me Think About That.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:48pm Brett:

I am LOVING the Ravi music, thank you for playing.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:49pm steve:

i keep hearing there may be a copy of the Concert for Bangladesh album hidden in a closet at my Grandmas... i may have to press some family members on that this weekend
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:50pm G:

Ravi's always great. I read a bio of him a few years ago, starting with his tours back in the 30s...
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:51pm Honey Water:

I can't speak for everyone else "since 1968," but I personally don't understand how anyone can be so certain gun control *won't work* until it is at least seriously tried. We've had it the other way all along, and look where that's gotten us. Blaming the media for everything is *now* the "right-sounding" thing to say.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:52pm Honey Water:

But right now, I just want to drift on a wave of Ravi. So be it.
  Fri. 12/14/12 3:57pm Carmichael:

Hiya Kurt, hey everyone. From Eddie to Ravi. And beyond .....
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:00pm G:

Read up some on how many gun laws have been passed since 1968 (when the concept first went mainstream after the two big assassinations that year). Read up on gun crime stats in jurisdictions with the most stringent gun controls.

All my relatives repeat the gun control mantra, like so many evangelicals toeing the doctrinal line. Monoculture.

I look at what actually happens and draw my own inferences.
Publicity saturation of mass murders makes them attractive to that one in 50 million people who's drawn to the idea of creating an event like that.

The publicity is what drives this repetitive cycle. I don't want to hear about it. Let the police deal with it, and stop watching or doing the wall to wall "coverage" of pseudo-journalists uttering deep thoughts.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:07pm Honey Water:

Oh, yes, thank goodness we have remote controls even if seriously deficient gun controls. This ends for me with we aGree to disaGree.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:14pm Otis:

I signed this today while not watching the news: http://1.usa.gov/Xnrs6z
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:20pm other david:

horrid day, but soothing tunes Mr. Gottschalk.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:22pm other david:

(or rather disturbing.. depending one ones point of view)
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:24pm Honey Water:

Other David?! Hey, man, where have you been??
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:28pm steve:

oh yes, awesome nyoukis track
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:28pm other david:

Howdy Honey Water, long time no yap!

I've been caught up with stuff and things, just looking forward to the year 2012 buggering off, like everyone else :)
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:32pm Honey Water:

Philo and I thought perhaps you were braving the Atlantic in your pizza box! :)
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:37pm Honey Water:

IAE, we've missed your special formula milk of human kindness on the playlists. Can't OD on kindness.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:38pm other david:

I've had to re-plan the Atlantic crossing, I've come to the conclusion Pizza wont suffice as a construction material for a seaworthy vessel.

Now moving towards lasagne pasta sheets, research is slow as the resources involved continue to be eaten. Alas.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:40pm other david:

Aw, that feeling is mutual - you're good folks and I always enjoy bumping into you both here :)
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:40pm Carmichael:

Yeah, Slainte OD. And happy Friday night.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:42pm moose:

hello i'm leaving bad-news-land and joining y'all
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:43pm Honey Water:

Philo's not here, unfortunately, and likely won't get home before the end of the show, but I know he sends you the best.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:45pm Honey Water:

DJKG, is the label actually "plana-A"?
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:45pm Carmichael:

Hey moose, come on in.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:45pm other david:

Just opening a beer as I write this, Carmichael :)
Avatar    Fri. 12/14/12 4:47pm DJKG:

plana-a, yup!
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:48pm Carmichael:

If you can wait about 3 hours more, I'll be joining you!
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:48pm Honey Water:

TY!
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:49pm Honey Water:

I'll toast to you across the pond, OD, with a glass of red wine -- cheers!
Avatar    Fri. 12/14/12 4:51pm DJKG:

oh, you know, i guess it's not. it's actually "Alga Marghen," but they use 'plana-a' on their spines and catalog numbers. sorry.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:51pm other david:

Cheers HW!

Carmichael, I'm not sure how long I can abide this tardiness, but I'll let you off this time.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:52pm Honey Water:

Hunh, OK. I just thought it might be a typo.
  Fri. 12/14/12 4:54pm Honey Water:

At times the Ashley sounded like magnified corn popping.

Love the birdsong here!
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:02pm northguineahills:

Been here all day. Being the moron I am, I just noticed that every resume edit I sent out for the last year had a typo in the email address. Now that my brain has stopped imploding, I'm trying to resend resumes for at least every job I applied for in the last 3 months. Yes, I've ruined my life over an unchecked typo. (and I'd edit my resume at least twice a week).
Avatar    Fri. 12/14/12 5:04pm DJKG:

yipes! sorry to hear, ngh!
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:04pm steve:

oy, that sucks ngh. have you tried getting in touch with the owner of that email address?
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:04pm Honey Water:

@NGH: Arrrrrrgggghh. :/ But do you think a typo would have that much weight (except in proofreading / copy editing)?
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:05pm Ike:

NGH, I did something like that once. And it was for an editorial job. Excruciating, isn't it? Ugh.
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:06pm Honey Water:

[or if you highlighted "attention to detail" as one of your strengths]
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:07pm other david:

In the past I've noted that gmail can be somewhat accommodating with minor email address issues..
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:09pm Honey Water:

BTW, how did you discover it after a year had gone by? With advancing age I've developed a 7HD internal copy editor (yes, that's hour, not second) that surfaces to let me recall an error in something written or sent. It's really annoying since I think this internal editor is partying somewhere in Hawaii.
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:15pm northguineahills:

Well, since it was my email address, no one could actually email me. I only figured it out when a recruiter contacted me Wednesday and asked if my email was current. He spelled it out for me, and I looked at all of my resumes, and sure enough. i only edited the content of the resumes, not my header. It never occurred to me that my own email could be incorrect.
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:17pm Carmichael:

It's a good omen, ngh.
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:19pm Honey Water:

Right, understood (now). I'm so sorry... I sure know how it feels to wonder why you're getting no response when you've put yourself out there on the line. And, yes, what Carmichael just said.
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:22pm northguineahills:

fyi, the recruiter called me, but I've only had 3 people contact me via phone, and I know email is the preferred response method. Let's hope it's a good omen.
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:33pm Honey Water:

HONEstlY, the pitch is causing me some trouble. I need to get on dinner anyway, so so long good people! Have as great a weekend as is possible under sundry circumstances.
  Fri. 12/14/12 5:40pm northguineahills:

I love this Otomo/Davies/M.
