My father-in-law was a plumber who worked construction with Joe Butler on occasion. Joe took on work as a carpenter after the Spoonful. He says he was a super nice guy, an able carpenter, and a total mess in every other way.
Well, I missed a chunk of show while I tended to some work here at home with a friend, but she brought strawberry and banana for us to share, so all is well. Now should I continue with the work or get OUTside on this assertively warm breezy day?
It's really cool to hear something unfamiliar and wonderful in a set...and sort of horrible too....realizing that if I'd discovered the track *any* other way, I'd play it. It's that way with the "Listen Here" from the first set. Thank you...and damn you, Charlie Lewis. Mostly...thank you. It was really cool.
I thought this was Nick Drake, upon first hearing.
Listening Out There:
Listener James: Interesting factoid! Never would have known that since I had no desire to see The Social Network. Why go to Facebook...when Facebook comes to you...continuously...inevitably...unwanted...
the trailer was nothing like the movie (which i did not see but which does have a great soundtrack). iirc, it was just screenshots of fb, people setting up profiles, friending one another, posting updates, liking things, etc.
Listening Out There:
Was this Nino Rota in a film? I don't recognize it...
The Social Network's not a bad movie. Certainly didn't celebrate or elevate the Zuckhead in my view, and sure as hell didn't move me an iota closer to giving in and signing up for his data vacuuming system.
GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO PROGRAMMING ALERT...
Matt Fiveash's show is all set to hit the stream running immediately following Busy Doing Nothing. Keep the music flowing and switch over to Matt's playlist page here:
I enjoy Farcebook. Using the shortened version of my middle name instead of full first name confounds the data vacuuming aspects somewhat. Just use a fake name with your real picture or something. If you have some hilarious acquaintances then you get to see some pretty funny status updates sometimes. However if your friends are all boring then forget it, it's useless.
Canceled my crapbook account in 2010.
Bender's Big Score is a good The Social Network companion.
And that BBC documentary, which is withering its shelf life behind geoblockers; dear BBC.
