I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Try Zingerman's or Broder's Italian Cucina online. I would think that you could find some mostarda in a good Italian grocery in NYC or Jersey.

I think you just put the strings on and it plays itself

i'm having enough troubling adjusting the truss rod on my archtop, and that's only six strings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm DCE:

any time I've ever tried doing that it never quite worked out...I have to let the pros do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Mike East:

I'm sure I could make it make sound. That's enough, right? I do have a Vincent Bell Electric sitar which is much closer to playing electric guitar...but more psychedelic.

I just saw some Organum posted on the 433rpm.blogspot.com blog...will have to go check that shit out.
Avatar 1:37pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@mike: it was something like...
1. rip those chord buttons out ASAP
2. add pickup
3. detune the hell out of everything
4. thin aluminum pica-rulers woven through strings
5. contact mics along various parts of the rulers
6. hassle everything with electric toothbrushes.
7. fill a whole damned mixer with all the inputs, FX until it sounds like a chorus of WTF...
8. repeat. a lot.

Either that or a choir of roboferrets. Either way, I'm good.
Avatar 1:46pm glenn:

hmmmmm. *puts on food scientist cap* it's probably the citric acid causing it to explode, so the first thing you need to do is neutralize that. throw it in a boz full of baking soda, then try candying it.

p.s. - i have no idea what i9'm talking aboutt.
Avatar 1:47pm Bryce:

that guy's whipped up some pretty intense monochordery
  1:47pm fascinoma:

@Bryce when do they explode? like at what step in the process?
Avatar 1:48pm glenn:

also, my typing blows goats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm fleep:

Candied Clementines

Avatar 1:52pm Bryce:

interesting, glenn...haven't heard that!

fleep, not that kind; like, the whole, fully candied version that takes a couple of weeks of soaking in simple syrup.
Avatar 1:53pm Bryce:

at some point, most of them start to collapse. people seem to be almost secretive about their processeses.

i've heard whispering about slowly increasing the density of the syrup each day, but no specifics. guess i have to get a saccharometer and a lab coat....
  1:54pm Cecile:

Could you just poke a few holes in the membranes of the individual clementine pieces to let air out like a balloon?
Avatar 1:55pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

This H.Kojo piece... jeezus.
  1:55pm Cecile:

either that or maybe cut them crossways to make sure the membranes are ruptured? I would also make sure to sterilize everything - the container, tools, etc. Sugar is a great breeding ground for yeast - that's prolly why your stuff is exploding.
  1:57pm Cecile:

Also, I haven't really heard of citrus being candied besides the peel. Maybe the explosive factor is why.
Avatar 1:57pm Chris from DC:

Rev, that Hitoshi Kojo record is highly recommended.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Mike East:

didn't he say it implodes?
Avatar 2:01pm Bryce:

Avatar 2:02pm chocolate monk:

Hitoshi Kojo is great, also sniff out his duo with Michael Northam called Kodama, released a great Lp a few years back on Olde English Spelling Bee, a firm fave in this crack shack.
Avatar 2:05pm Bryce:

ah, haven't heard that one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm fleep:

Ah, a forum and someone else with the same problem:
"One dude collapsed in on himself. He looks healthy enough, but I'm wondering why this happened."
Avatar 2:08pm Bryce:

anyway, why are you candying clementines in the first place?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Richard Nixon:

I am sitting in a room directly above where I have a dog crate full of baby chickens (yes I have more than one bird). Suddenly with this song they all started chirping their brains out. The LOVE this shit, Bryce!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm G:

aren't Candied East Oranges used in flavoring Earl Grey Tea?
  2:12pm Cecile:

G, I believe it is the peel. I may be wrong.
Avatar 2:12pm Bryce:

because i'm going to bring them to dr. james hopkins so he'll let me take a ride on his monochord
Avatar 2:13pm Bryce:

you have a crate of baby chickens in your home!
  2:13pm Cecile:

HA. I was right about pricking the skin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm G:

it's bergamot peel, cecile, but somehow that would have been a more boring answer than east oranges
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Richard Nixon:

My current bird count is nine. THE bird is a zebra finch in the kitchen. She loves WFMU. In the basement are five chickens that are about 5 weeks old. In the yard are three aging hens. In the name of full disclosure I must tell you that sometime this afternoon a friend is going to stop by and pickup the hens to slaughter them for me. I was hoping it would happen during your show so I could tell you that your infernal racket caused me to slaughter a chicken but I don't think the timing is going to work out.
Avatar 2:19pm Bryce:

if i can just cause one person to slaughter a chicken, then it's all been worth it

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Richard Nixon:

I'm doing my best. One of the chickens I am really looking forward to parting with. She is really loud with a god awful squawking voice that makes me hate being out in the yard. Kinda like that track you were playing a while back there.

I know this is unimaginably lame, although it wasn't really, but i was hazed, briefly, with a chicken. one of my more bumpkin-like "brothers" quickly twisted it's neck. he was from maryland, home of the chickens

Bryce, I'm really sorry but the chicken slaughter just ain't gonna happen during your show. To make up for it I took some pork out of the freezer from the pig I had slaughtered at Xmas time. I'll listen to one of your archives while I grind it up for sausage this weekend. I know that's a pretty weak compromise but its the best I've got to offer.
