91.1 is being screwy. Working for now.
Avatar 8:08pm Bethany Ryker:

Thanks, Ranjit - we've been having transmitter problems and we need to know when it goes down. Please keep me updated!

It's back?

It's back!

...someone @ the Pub told me that to learn keyboards I should study lessons Bartók wrote because they are basic yet still interesting - so Bartók *has* been my BarTalk...
Avatar 8:10pm ranjit:

It probably went out for half a minute or so during Do or DIY, but that's a show where it's hard to tell for sure. (Among the reasons I love wfmu :))
  8:11pm P-090:

@Rev: oooch, that hurt
Avatar 8:11pm Droll:

Harumph! Now the stream's out! And now it's back... Ohhhh, technology...

...I know P-090 - but true...
- yeah stream cut out a sec there...

Droll, I thought that was my terrible verizon internet, but if it wasn't just me...

Nice BarTalk, RRN63! :)
  8:14pm P-090:

@Tim, Kenzo, whoever: the webby stream itself did go out for about eight seconds
@ranjit: right, PLU's show is not the best time to diagnose the transmission quality
Avatar 8:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...better to just have a pint then wait for me to teach myself keyboards...

little musgrave? what?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Matt from Springfield:

I have a roster of pupils as well - I check the roster when I wake up, and choose a pair of pupils for my eye. Whatever suits my mood that day.

Something about myself - I write comments like the one above, since we're all pretty much hooked on puns over here..
Avatar 8:25pm Bethany Ryker:

@Nov63 Sinuses are much better as I'm sure you heard! Thank you!!
  8:25pm LovecraftDude888:

stream is cookin' here. thought it was little musgrave the song John Wesley Harding keeps doing the past 13 yrs.
  8:26pm LovecraftDude888:

ru kidding she wrote opera on Bierce? wTF? never heard of her before
  8:30pm Steve-O:

Hi folks. Lemme break the ice with a fun little piece of personal trivia.

I'm a genealogy buff and I've been interested in finding my roots for sometime.
Well, you guys won't believe what I've found over the years.....for starters, I am related to, to various degrees, Jimmie Rodgers(the early country star), Presidents Carter & Hoover. the guy who had Bozeman, Mont. named for him, one of the founding settlers of New York City, and even (possibly) Patrick Swayze, the "Wolverines!" guy in Red Dawn.....and that's just the tip of the iceberg(no pun intended)! =)
  8:31pm JakeGould:

Hi Bethany! Hope you are well! Or at least better than last week.
Avatar 8:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- gorgeous Chamber selection; you rule BR: appreciate every week being transported from my typical reality for a bit
...still need someone to signal me when it's okay to clap though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Ice broken Steve-O! :)
I'm also into genealogy, and fascinated by some of the characters I've found.

"Hommage aux Freres Marx III. Harpo"! On the HARP! :D
Avatar 8:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- they say Harpo really was as sweet as he seemed.
  8:38pm LovecraftDude888:

well, this DOES bear closer examination....in fact, it needs a nightgown!

Some of my earliest ancestors were long chains of amino acids.

@RRN63: All the Brothers seemed quite decent folk.

@fleep: Hey, mine two! We all should have a Family Reunion, but I guess every day you walk around outside is like one!
  8:42pm LovecraftDude888:

hang on was the question of revelation something about one's lineage or a secret about yourself?

my dad kept telling me years ago that his great great granddad was a guard at the palace in St. Petersburg...Mother Russia. supposedly true. I can't verify.
Avatar 8:49pm Droll:

It turns out I'm related to the Old Codger (great-...-great-great-grandpa). We all are, except fleep, who successfully branched off the family tree before the knuckle-draggers took over.
Avatar 8:49pm ranjit:

Somehow I read that as "his great great granddad was a statue at the palace in St Petersburg" - that would really be impressive!
  8:50pm LovecraftDude888:

if he had been der Golem maybe...could be both? wrong country, though...alas

The news was they shut down 23&Me for unverified health claims - ?? - but I still want that genetic testing that can tell you your exact racial %ages & derivative locations...
  8:51pm JakeGould:

Anyone else here listening to the music? Sorry if that’s not “cool” but you are doing a good job Bethany.
  8:52pm LovecraftDude888:

we're listening matey...but Bethany asked for some of this info. earlier.....you missed that
Avatar 8:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- my guess is *everyone* is listening to BR do a great job w/ the music - as I acknowledged above.
  8:53pm LovecraftDude888:

damn straight
Avatar 8:54pm ranjit:

Oops, there goes 91.1 again. So we have to talk about golems instead of the music.
  8:54pm LovecraftDude888:

Crikey....popup sounds crystal clear here

[making finger-to-nose-to-RRN gesture]
I think most of us have already figured out how not to tune in every week if we didn't want to listen.
Avatar 8:55pm Whooda:

My 128k stream is dead as a door nail (who as ever heard of a LIVE door nail anyway) The pop-up player works fine.
  8:55pm LovecraftDude888:

it's called roll over to YTube and listen to Soft Machine or whatever
Avatar 8:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- no iTunes stream prob.s here after one mentioned much earlier.
Avatar 8:56pm Bethany Ryker:

Looks like I have some post-show reading to do in order to catch up with everyone! Glad you all were here!

I am having my Bukowski moment
Thank you!!
Avatar 8:57pm Droll:

A doornail (coined c. 1350) is a very large studded nail on the outside of wooden doors, often used to nail on the metal strips which gave the door additional strength. They were also used as an ornamentational device. The more expensive homes had these metal, heavily-studded nails rather than wooden pegs, like the regular folks had. The doornails were 'clinched' on the inside of the door to prevent theft and give additional strength. Once clinched, the nail is 'dead', as in, it cannot be used again for that purpose.
