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.

@Bryce: just to say that I rode with my friend listening to Xenakis' Persepolis, but he could only stand fice minutes of it. Fortunately I've brought along Rob Weisberg premium, so we went through the city listening to brass bands from around the world. It was fun

I had a curried chicken panini and a brownie that just melted in my mouth.

Bryce, I've got some new birds in my kitchen and I was planning on working at home today and letting them listen to your show but I got called into the office. I think they would really dig this. Do you think it's important for them to get acquainted with your live show first or could I get them started from the archive?

Used up the remaining ham in the fridge, on tasty bread. Along with grapes, carrots, raw cauliflower, a grapefruit, yogurt and a banana. Didn't eat much for breakfast, so am already feeling hungry.

that was quite an ambitious piece.

alright - i just had to explain what a dickie is to my younger co-workers. it's definitely sandwich time.

When worn externally, dickies make good lobster bibs.

so what IS a dickie?

Always a good omen to come in during Ferrari.

alga marghen recently reissued ephemere I & II, which made me really happy as it had been kinda hard to find for a long time, which just seemed criminal.

Nice, I leave for an hour and only 2 songs have gone by, that's the value I crave.

Just ducked out for some felafel balls with chili sauce. Crunchy, fire-breathing goodness.
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 2:33pm dk:

... or maybe they just found a bunch copies in the basement of some villa near milan, but whatever, everyone needs this album. it's just _perfect_.
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 2:34pm TDK60:

Ferrari--did he influence psych, prog, ambient rockers? And vice versa?

love this!! thanks Bryce *!*
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 2:42pm Bryce:

tdk60, i'd say yeah! i think you could probably say that about the psychedelic era in general, tho — lots of cultural crossover happened between (a certain vein of) academia and rock musicians. evevryone was just kind of oozing out of their genres.
  Fri. 5/16/14 2:43pm sdfjones:

Very nice. thx Bryce, never heard this before.
  Fri. 5/16/14 2:43pm Play Kidgen:

This Ferrari is perfectly complimenting an overcast afternoon on 22nd St. in Manhattan. Thanks Big B.

I look forward to downloading it to my private Bryce collection
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 2:48pm TDK60:

This one (E. II) sounds like it was recorded last month.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 2:49pm adrian in mpls:

Agreed DCE! Just wonderful wonderful.
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 2:50pm dk:

yeah, that's the amazing thing about this piece (and a lot of ferrari's work, i think) -- it's an under-appreciated rosetta stone.
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 2:54pm northguineahills:

I have never been disappointed in Ferrari. Somehow, I missed Epherere II. Always great w/ a light touch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 2:56pm braveness23:

I'm certainly going to add Ferrari to my regular listening.
  Fri. 5/16/14 2:56pm doca:

do I have to say this is amazing? thanks, bryce!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/16/14 2:56pm steve:

fuck. (my one word review of today's show)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 2:56pm adrian in mpls:

@dk - Okay, I'm not crazy, then. I've had the opinion for a few years that Ferrari has never truly had the reputation he deserves. I'm surprised how often friends who are into "new music"/etc. haven't heard any of his work.
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 2:59pm Bryce:

hey, everyone, thanks for hanging out! have good weeks...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 2:59pm braveness23:

Whoa, he studied piano from Messiaen?
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 3:00pm dk:

the nice thing about his relative obscurity is seeing people get the "MIND. BLOWN." reaction that things like ephemere produce.

Steve outdid me w/ his praise.

you know sometimes when i over-analyze what has been thrown at me recently i think and i wait and it's almost as if, i have gotten used to this feeling of disassociating from life, i don't like it i know life can promise me more, so the whole idea of me going home is still there and i try to really sync my mind into knowing or believing that well, that perhaps the wiser choice really is that type of isolated setting and climate it's the "cooler" decision in my opinion, im not trying to be stubborn i really do want this to end, is it too soon, what the hell am i missing out on really nothing im learning to ignore fucking people because in the end it will be alright keys won't be missing and doors won't be locked
