hallo, frowskateers! what did you learn this week?
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:09am sanitariumhill:

This is a great song You're Dreaming
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:11am sanitariumhill:

I learned to corn my own beef
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:13am nate:

I learned that the eagles could be difficult to work with
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:14am P-90:

whoah! it's Frow! whazzup, Bro?
wait, I mean:
WOW! it's Frow! whazzup now?
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:15am sanitariumhill:

@nate the eagles are tough but the beef was easy
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:17am P-90:

I learned that every time this show comes on, I remember when it was on Sunday nights and when Gaylord would announce that it was coming up, he always sounded skeptical about the pronunciation of the name, never seemed to get used to it.
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:24am nate:

Pertaining to the Red Rhodes song from last week, I learned that steel guitar music vendors are still living in the late 90s with their website designs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 12:25am mister nar:

awesome set so far!!!!!!
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:25am Lefty:

Enjoying the music jj
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:27am rw:

I learned that the women who work in the preservation lab at the New York Public Library wear white lab coats.
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:29am rw:

sanitariumhill, how do you corn beef?
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:30am sanitariumhill:

@rw You place a brisket in a brine of salt and spices for 5 to ten days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 12:35am JakeGould:

Corn this beef.
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:37am rw:

Sounds easy. After a few days I'd probably forget about it though. How'd it turn out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 12:37am coelacanth:

olá Jesse and Frows,and others!

i learned this week that "frow" in this context is a reference to a mis-spelling of "fro"!
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:38am jj.:

ha, did you learn that by listening to the Marathon archive or did you learn it elsewhere?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 12:40am JakeGould:

@jj.: Yeah, I remember that from a show a few weeks back. You were DJing something and your choices weren’t going over that well and someone slipped you a note: “Yo! Fro!”
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:40am wendy del formaggio:

I'm glad I'm still awake so I can tune in. This is a great coupla sets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 12:40am coelacanth:

i listened to your marathon show. Great story!
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:42am sanitariumhill:

@rw It was delicious. I made corned beef hash with the leftovers tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 12:45am JakeGould:

@sanitariumhill: Seriously, I envy someone who does that to meat.
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:46am P-90:

I heard that "origin story" during the marathon too. I just always remeber Gaylord pausing almost imperceptibly before saying Frow Show, like he wanted to be sure he was using the correct pronunciation. He thought at first that "Frow" probably rhymed with "Show". Perfectly reasonable, just wrong.
  Tue. 4/7/15 12:47am nate:

If you are in the mood for learning, do a search for the essay "coming in like El Niño" by Jeremy Lavine, as well as the companion piece "lightning!!!". this music makes a good backdrop
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:48am sanitariumhill:

You corn it with salt, saltpeter, brown sugar, cinnamon stick, mustard seeds, black peppercorns, cloves, allspice berries, juniper berries, crushed bay leaves, and ginger
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 12:53am JakeGould:

@sanitariumhill: Neat! Any proportions you go? Or just basically like one tablespoon—or 1/4 cup—each?
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:55am sanitariumhill:

@Jake Just search for Alton Brown's corning your own beef recipe and I used 1 cup Morton Tender Quick
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 12:57am sanitariumhill:

and I added coriander
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:03am will:

Was that last song about 37 minutes long or did it just stretch my imagination.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:04am jj.:

little of both. it's been about 37 minutes over 4 pieces of music segued into one another. oregon's been going since just before midnight. swimming in bengal was the 20 minutes before that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 1:05am Ĩkє:

No cumin?
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:08am rw:

Hmmm... I just learned that saltpeter does not curb the male sex drive.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:10am sanitariumhill:

ie. No cumin. The myth is that saltpeter causes impotence.
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:13am P-90:

No cumin! And coriander is key! Was it really not in the recipe? This discussion is making me very hungry for a corned beef sandwich on seeded rye. With a little brown mustard.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:14am sanitariumhill:

The seeded rye is key. Tomorrow I'm making that rye and reubens to finish it up.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:15am sanitariumhill:

@P-90 coriander was not in the recipe.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:22am Knile:

Happy Frow O'Clock, folks
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:24am Knile:

This week I learned that the prevalence of latex condoms is a complicated situation. (Slate had a surprisingly enjoyable longform piece about the situation.)
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:26am sanitariumhill:

@Knile How so
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 1:27am Ryab:

Oh my god this is the first thing I've heard of this Bridges tape. Incredible.
Avatar    Tue. 4/7/15 1:27am BEAVO:

The Dude abides!
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:28am sanitariumhill:

@rw would your name happen to be Mark
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:29am jj.:

the whole dude sleep tapes thing is pretty well done, i think. charming & creative.
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:29am rw:

Knile, My grandfather used to work at the Chicago Water District. He said they clogged up the works there.

sanitariumhill, No. Robert.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:30am Knile:

@sanitariumhill I can't do it justice at this hour/mindstate but a lot of it boils down to whether condoms that felt better (e.g. lambskin) would be just as effective. The research was fuzzily done & led to strong policy & cultural norms, but maybe non-latex alternatives are the way to go, in terms of safety.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:33am sanitariumhill:

When I was at Pratt I used to use those NYC condoms. Broke all the time
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:35am rw:

I have an insanely great photo of my grandfather at work in the chemistry lab there in 1941.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:36am sanitariumhill:

@rw At the Chicago Water District?
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:37am P-90:

chem lab at Pratt?
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:38am rw:

Yes. Chicago Water District. It was the only thing I wanted from my Grandmother's estate.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:38am sanitariumhill:

Pratt may have had a chem lab in 1941
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 1:38am Ryab:

Ahhhh Jesse you tha man.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:39am sanitariumhill:

@rw You just wanted the photo?
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:40am rw:

Yes. It's pretty great. I'll upload a snapshot.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:41am sanitariumhill:

That would be good. Are you sure your name's not Mark?
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:43am P-90:

I. Bridges' photography is also worth checking out, he's been doing it for a while and has a style, not a dabbler.
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:45am rw:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hlsre24vzq0cevd/P1010774-small.jpg?dl=0

Photo's a little blurry but you get the idea. Was totally mesmerized by this photo as a kid. My grandfather's standing on the right.

Nope. Robert.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:45am sanitariumhill:

P-90 That sounds interesting
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:46am sanitariumhill:

@rw Wow nice. Thanks for sharing

250th anniversary is cubic zirconium
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:50am P-90:

The Dude's photographic specialty is the panoramic camera, which takes those extra-wide shots with enormous depth of field.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:50am jj.:

perfect!
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 1:51am jj.:

yeah, i stumbled on a mini show of the dude's photography at the lincoln center movie theater a few years ago. nice stuff. still scared of his C&W band, though.
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:54am rw:

P-90, If I remember correctly that camera has a lens that swivels on an axis to get that sweeping panorama. It's called a Widelux.
  Tue. 4/7/15 1:55am P-90:

[in Count Floyd voice] Scary, kids, really makes me want to pull the covers over my head, the thought of that Dude's band. Ooh, so scary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/7/15 1:55am ░Ī Ҡ ℰ░::

Fascinating article, @Knile. I had no idea so many people had problems w/latex condoms.
  Tue. 4/7/15 2:04am P-90:

rw: yep, it's a Japanese model of what photographers generically term a "pano" or "pan cam." Some have swivel lenses, some have an internal "tilting lens board" mechanism. Bridges has a good eye and a real sense of how exploit the unique properties of that technology.
  Tue. 4/7/15 2:10am rw:

P-90, I like the idea that with those cameras there's a time difference between the left and right (top/bottom if vertical) sides of the photos. And I agree, he seems to have a pretty good sense of how to use the thing.
  Tue. 4/7/15 2:25am rw:

It's funny, so many of the Bridges photos seem to be taken on movie sets. It creates an odd blend of reality and fiction. (Which is something that's inherent in the photographic process to begin with.)
  Tue. 4/7/15 2:31am rw:

Jesse!!

Enjoying the drift.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 2:34am sanitariumhill:

I wish I was in NY with a huge wad of cash
  Tue. 4/7/15 2:37am rw:

Who needs cash when you've got homemade reuben sandwiches?
  Tue. 4/7/15 2:38am rw:

Okay, I know. But still.
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 2:38am sanitariumhill:

I live like a refugee
Avatar Tue. 4/7/15 2:39am Mugsy:

You know you don't have to live like a refugee

Jesse Thanks for a Brilliant 3 hours!
i'll hear the end but i'm getting away from the computer now.
good night all.
