Hopefully Fabio will now try some comedy teutonic?

By the way, haven't tuned in for a while and Fabio no longer seems to be playing the spandex-flavoured roller-disco music in-between tracks. Gutted.

and YES! you are absolutely right! i learned this when i was studying Sanskrit and later (being Hungarian), studying Hungarian!
i found Hungarian -- especially the vowels and their sounds -- LOGICAL but MUCH more COMPLICATED than Sanskrit!

Yeah, Basque is a genuine one-off. Be amazing to learn a language like that.

Cecile: yes they do. Try Revolver distribution in SF. they have a couple of titles by them I believe.

Red Army Faktion were armed group in West Germany, so am assuming thats what song is about as Eno was working in Germany at the time. Anyone know?

word, nice happy bday to ya!

on an unrelated note, Arto Lindsay was a blast Tuesnite. Played a range of his stuff from the past.
Avatar 5:12pm Jeff:

FYI, while I'm a huge fan of the Kodachrome look, out of fairness I have to point out some of the Kodachrome/Ektachrome tradeoffs.

Kodachrome lasts pretty much forever in dark storage, but its pigments fade faster than the later Ektachrome formulations when projected a lot.

The Kodachrome process was immensely complicated and fussy, and involved some particularly toxic chemicals. E6 (the Ektachrome process) doesn't need the same complexity in processing machines and chemicals; indeed, suitably dedicated people can do it at home.

Some non-Kodak E6 films are/were quite good - Fuji Velvia, in particular, was anything but washed out. It's pretty much the most legendarily saturated film ever in regular use.
  5:14pm Phillip in Brooklyn:

Hey! There are some ektachrome films on YouTube :-) cool
  5:17pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

If I had the money and time dj go back to the old film camera days. I'm too spoiled on my digital cameras
Avatar 5:18pm Cecile:

I know nothing of your chromes. I just took black and white pics when I had a SLR camera. And Fuji made an excellent black and white fillm.
Avatar 5:18pm Fabio:

what Jeff Said. thanks, saved me the trouble...
  5:20pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

I use to take black and white photographs too
  5:21pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

With my canon AE-1 camera and my Pentax K1000 camera
  5:23pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

I was a real shutter bug back in the 1990's but the film cost stopped me:-(
I still love taking pictures with my digital cameras
Avatar 5:25pm Cecile:

I am liking taking iPod photos a lot. And messing them up in Photoshop...
Avatar 5:26pm Jeff:

And for those who want to compare film versus digital shooting technique, note that:

When shooting chromes ("slide film" to non-photographers), you have to be really careful not to overexpose - because overexposure results in clear film - no detail at all - in the parts which are past the maximum, and in undersaturated colors in mid-tones which are overexposed. Underexposure results in dense film with little detail. Basically, you just have to get exposures exactly right. Shooting chromes is technically demanding.

When shooting negative film, it's easier to get reasonably good results without being perfect. You basically just have to make sure there's enough exposure so the darkest stuff you care about has some detail, and things pretty much fall into place. Sure, if highlights are too badly overexposed they get blocked, but it's still much less demanding than getting chromes right.

Shooting digital? Shooting digital is most like shooting chrome film. Completely overexposed parts of digital images have no information - like the clear parts of chromes.

Digital is a little more forgiving than chrome film because of what you can adjust in post, and the range of useful after-exposure adjustments is far greater if you shoot raw - never shoot JPEGs in a digital camera - but still, the basic principle (don't overexpose!) is like shooting slides.
  5:27pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

@Cecile that's what I do too:) I have almost 5 gigs of pictures on my iPod touch
  5:28pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

@Cecile but the iPod camera the front one is only 5MP and the front one is only 1.2 MP

i just rediscovered two of my 16mm b&w hand spliced student films at my parents house. i remember shooting em on a decades-old Bolex H16. wish i could remember what film but im pretty sure it was cheapo bottom of the line Kodak something or other. good times.

Today? If you wanted to shoot super 8 you would need to sell both kidneys on the black market just for a few hours of filming:-(
Avatar 5:35pm glenn:

what if you filmed the kidney removal surgery, and put it on youtube? i bet you could make a few bucks that way.
Avatar 5:38pm northguineahills:

I was in the other room cleaning, and immediately recognized La Legende d'Eer. This is a piece you need to hear from the beginning to the end.
  5:39pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

@glenn there are videos, medical videos and If I search for it I might find one about surgically removing a kidney
