Hey, Vicki! I'm listening live for a change...not through the archive...

I love me my facts

The follow up album will be "Crooning Descartes."

I was thrilled when I found they had Plunderphonic hosted there! Was grinning from ear to ear

this terryriley's tune is cracking me on inside..

Nice Jake!

So easy to get lost on UBUWeb. Bob bless Kenny G and all who sail with the good ship UBU

all of these artists can be found at www.ubu.com...

hi Tim!

Hi Vicki. Sorry. I was passively channeling Tony Newley for a bit there. Very susceptible.
Avatar 7:23pm mariano:

Yeah, I didn't realize there were so many translations of the Inferno!
Avatar 7:23pm dale:

digging the show ms. vicki!
  7:23pm Phil:

Vicki is our tour guide through the catacombs which are UBU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm People Like Us:

it is - there are some nice Top 10s on the ubu.com frontpage too, other people's discoveries
  7:24pm Ian Stonehouse:

Such a wonderful show :-)
  7:25pm Phil:

A tour guide is very useful in Ubu
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm People Like Us:

yes, we all need tour guides or we are running around smashing into the wall

Sublime strangeness

Midway through my subway journey I found myself lost without access to WFMU and Do or DIY
Avatar 7:27pm dale:

i remember going to her loft for a studio tour week back around 1980. didn't appreciate it then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Rich in Washington:

I've contributed rare recordings to UBUWeb. In some ways, it feels like you just stuck them in that big warehouse at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, never to be seen (or heard) again. But I am also proud to have added to the labyrinthian-ness of it all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm People Like Us:

smashing into firewalls should I say
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm People Like Us:

who's loft?

If I were a country, that version of "Surabaya" would be my national anthem.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Rich in Washington:

I like that UBroulette thing they've got now, where you can get a random video.
Plus, whoever made that new playlist player is a saint!
  7:32pm Phil:

The Raiders of the Lost Ark imagery is great- that's how it feels sometimes
Avatar 7:32pm mariano:

You're not making it any better you know! ;)
Avatar 7:33pm northguineahills:

Thanks for Meredith MonK (and the Patrick Ireland)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm People Like Us:

I like Raiders of the Lost Ark analogies, yes
as much as Muppet analogies
Avatar 7:34pm tim:

Faith-based bed music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm People Like Us:

better than Bed-based faith music
  7:35pm MrFab:

Wish there was an easier way to search ubuweb. My own music might be in there. I do know that Kenny has snatched up some of my blog posts and absorbed them into the web that is ubu. (Which is fine by me - glad I can contribute to the Raiders-like warehouse of weirdness.)
Avatar 7:35pm tim:

Perhaps there should be a feasibility study before we make such presumptions.
  7:35pm Phil:

I have faith in bed-based music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm People Like Us:

look on the /sound page there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Rich in Washington:

Me too, Fab! I was delighted to see something I edited myself absorbed into the Ubu collection (a Bukowski album which originally came in two sides, which I cut into individual tracks).
Probably not Kenneth himself but one of his many and myriad volunteer contributors...
Avatar 7:38pm northguineahills:

Hmmm, I thing I've heard Mr Goldsmith before on air years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Rich in Washington:

@MrFab: it's been purposely made to defy Google search engines. I think out of RIAA (heh) concerns.
Avatar 7:39pm tim:

They say Baudrillard wore a brand new shirt every day of his life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm cklequ:

I love the fact that Kenny G outranks that *other* guy on discogs
www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Rich in Washington:

and I think they were having problems with the internal search function but it may be restored now.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm steve:

wow Sean Landers is on Ubuweb... they've got everything! props to you Vicki for including him on your top ten.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Rich in Washington:

Vicki, wasn't Kenny's show called something like Anal Magic? I can't remember. I'm afraid to google that at work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm People Like Us:

yes, the internal ubu search engine was broken recently - that is whey I'm saying to look at ubu.com/sound if in doubt :) Yes! Sean Landers coming up...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm People Like Us:

it's been called a few things - including that - Nothing Special as well
Avatar 7:42pm mariano:

I knew a drag queen that used to sing "This is the dawning of the age of my hairy ass."
Avatar 7:43pm dale:

loved his marathon outfit - viking helmet, pointy bra, codpiece...
  7:44pm Ian Stonehouse:

Reminds me of "Cheeses of Nazareth", though unsure where I first heard that
Avatar 7:45pm tim:

Sorry. Confusion. Satie wore a new shirt every day. Baudrillard sported very dull formalism, accessorized with provocative -- essentially meaningless -- jargon, mostly from disciplines far outside his metier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm People Like Us:

I'd opt for the new shirt
Avatar 7:47pm tim:

They called him "The Velvet Gentleman" for a reason.
  7:49pm Robert:

Thanks for finally giving us the explanation of why Kenny G. was soooo boring all those yrs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm People Like Us:

you're welcome :)
  7:51pm Robert:

It was apparently a test of his discipline--and of ours.
  7:52pm Phil:

Cleverly boring
Avatar 7:52pm tim:

Long live "Anal Magic" !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm People Like Us:

always good to exercise those muscles, Robert :)
Avatar 7:53pm Risky:

Kenny G and Intelligent Design is the show that turned me onto WFMU!
  7:53pm Robert:

Jean Shepherd used to speak & write of the "dynamic boredom" practiced by the Army.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm cklequ:

I loved Kenny G's boring show.
Avatar 7:53pm mariano:

Ah, yes, I needed some Landers today, thanks -- It's like he's known me my whole life!
Avatar 7:53pm Risky:

Love UbuWeb as well. It is vastly vexatious!
Avatar 7:54pm tim:

... a dynamic which includes grousing about boredom!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Rich in Washington:

Long live Boredom. For those few, seemingly indeterminable moments, your thoughts are your own.
I think the decline of human intellect began when we thought we needed to banish boredom permanently.
  7:55pm Phil:

Wow - Landers is the bomb!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm People Like Us:

I will have to cut Landers off but you can download him here - www.ubu.com...

Thank you Vicki! This was a wonderful show. Almost everything you played was unheard or unknown by me and I spend a lot of time there.

I can't get into this show, BYE
  7:57pm Phil:

Thanks Vicki !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm steve:

super show tonight! so engrossed i couldn't bring myself to step away and walk across the street to buy beer.
  7:57pm Robert:

I have the unenviable task of proofreading & copy editing someone like The Man Within. At least his writing looks like it.
