Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Mike East:

I wanted to sample cicadas, but they're just not very loud in my area. Bummer. I was gonna do a mix of John Secada singing with Cicadas.
Avatar 3:15pm Kurt Gottschalk:

common, elder, yes. hard to take that one. there's an independent producer trying to make a movie out of it.

thanks for tuning in, everyone!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Carmichael:

@Kurt: It's a history of the song-poem industry that aired on PBS a few years back. You know, send us your lyrics and $200.00 and we'll record it for you and make you a star? Eskelin's dad Rodd Keith (Eskelin) was one of the most talented and prolific *translators* of customer material in the business. Very insightful, sad, and a very entertaining 56 minutes.

oh, right carm. i've heard of that. ellery actually wrote about it for the old wfmu magazine 'lcd.' (it's included in the compilation dave the spazz edited a couple years back.) ellery and andrea parkins also did a great record reinterpreting his dad's songs.

Haven't heard or seen any cicadas, I feel gypped! But I have
spotted some slime grannies sitting near my apt. bldg.!
Avatar 5:04pm Chris from DC:

Cool, been listening to *a lot* of Sutekh Hexen lately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Carmichael:

@Kurt: I really liked what little I heard of Rodd Keith's music. I know he used a mellotron on a lot of it, which was rare in the early 70s. I'll look up the CD you're referring to.
Avatar 5:07pm northguineahills:

Apparently, you played this Heavy Winged track on April 26th, since I faved it then.
Avatar 5:10pm northguineahills:

What are slime grannies?

*Looks in fridge, only sees a PBR* I need to get real beer. I need to hit the plant nursery for some fungicide, I have a mildew and mold problem w/ my herbs and veggies w/ all of the rain we've had.
Avatar 5:10pm Kurt Gottschalk:

carm, there's two cds of keith's music out on tzadik. the eskelin/parkins cd is called 'green bermudas,' highly recommended.
Avatar 5:10pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ngh, <3
  5:12pm Scott B.:

oh god north, don't ask...we've had some trashy people move in my place over the past year and some guy was going off on the two "slimer grannies" (after The Slime People film) sitting outside smoking cigarettes and being a pain in the arse.
  5:13pm Scott B.:

I have an apt. complex full of morons! and slimers. Anyway, I need to get to Downtown Music Gallery again now it's down in Chinatown...anybody been there recently?
  5:14pm Scott B.:

wow looked up Heavy Wing on Amazon their label is "Three Lobed" Music a la the Yog Sothoh avatar creature in HPL's Haunter of the Dark! The three lobed burning eye....
Avatar 5:14pm northguineahills:

Haven't been to the DMG since I had disposable income. Hopefully w/ the interviews next week, I'll have some disposable income in the near future.
  5:15pm Scott B.:

And no relation to Mary Wing!
Avatar 5:16pm northguineahills:

I always thought Mary Wing should wing Wing wing Wings at the next Hoof & Mouth.
  5:16pm Scott B.:

Yeah, North I know what you mean. My disposable income is limited at present esp. for expensive music, books etc. Nevermind that, I ripped this guy's bookstore in Bellmore a second one the other day on Yelp...total assclown. He wanted $700 for old issues of Crypt of Cthulhu mag.!!! 26 issues and not even early ones. What a putz. Such an obnoxious old man.
Avatar 5:16pm spodiodi:

More about the Slimer Grannies, please?
Avatar 5:17pm northguineahills:

(w/ the video backdrop of the 80s sitcom, Wings)
  5:18pm Scott B.:

nah it's just some of the characters that have moved into my apt. complex the past year or two were such cretinous white trash (almost anyway) that i had to dub them The Slime People after one of my fave old SF movies. Two of them are like these old nasty ladies that sit there wearing shitty dirty sweats clothes whatever and chainsmoke all day long and do little else. Plus one of them granny of some obnoxious feckin little kid
skateboarding around and being a total nuisance.
  5:19pm Scott B.:

I live in LI so it figures.
Avatar 5:19pm Chris from DC:

The Heavy Winged is brutal. Thanks.
Avatar 5:20pm spodiodi:

Thanks. I gotta check out The Slime People. Sorry about the sweatpants.
  5:20pm Scott B.:

let's put it this way: not reading books and i don't think the slime grannies are big Morton Feldman fans!
Avatar 5:20pm northguineahills:

I grew up outside of Jacksonville, FL, I know the type.
  5:21pm Scott B.:

The Slime People is that movie where the things with tritons come out of the Labrea LA hills and start killing humans and making a ruckus!
  5:21pm Scott B.:

yeah they're like greasy grannies but the LI version!
Avatar 5:22pm northguineahills:

Southern white trash only differ from northern white trash only by accent and amount of rebel flags.
Avatar 5:22pm spodiodi:

Who doesn't love a good ruckus? Especially Labrea-style?
  5:23pm Scott B.:

Some moronic neighbor told me one of the grannies the one watching the annoying little psycho kid on the skateboard are like mob types...i doubt it. If so, they are destitute mob types!
Avatar 5:24pm spodiodi:

Southern white-trash are nicer, and cook better. Source: I've lived among trash all over the place.
  5:24pm Scott B.:

especially when the slime people come out of the sewers and viaduct elevators and stab you with their triton!
Avatar 5:24pm spodiodi:

Even mobbed up grannies like to be comfy.
  5:25pm Scott B.:

they ain't like the Gottis over there in Old Westbury believe me! But they dress about the same, all told. oh and the kid and some cretin uncle were playing with like guns or pellet guns the other day!
Avatar 5:25pm spodiodi:

Getting stabbed once with a triton, is like getting stabbed three times with a more ordinary weapon.
  5:26pm Scott B.:

we're talking some real lack of IQ folks.
  5:27pm Scott B.:

I just read that Billy Squier is playing the Great South Bay Festival in Patchogue in July. So scary.

I'm liking Kirschner's album covers especially, no reviews on Amazon though

Avatar 5:57pm northguineahills:

Rev, isn't 100 the definition of average IQ? although I know what you're saying.

Kurt, I thought you knew all of the musicians in Brooklyn.

Have a great weekend everyone, off to get some mycotoxins to save my plants (in an organic way).
