Google: "Stat, used as a directive to medical personnel during in an emergency situation, is from the Latin word statim, which means 'instantly' or 'immediately.'"

Avatar 3:11pm Polyus:

This Follakzoid stuff I have been hearing sounds really good.
Avatar 3:11pm Sem Chumbo:

And they say Latin is a dead language:>D
Avatar 3:11pm Cheri Pi:

that's good to know sphere, I never knew, it figures though being a medical term that its from Latin. whaddelse can you tell us?
  3:12pm mavrg:

Follakzoid start their US tour tomorrow here in LA. Looking forward to it.
Avatar 3:13pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

interestingly makes it an opposite of STET, which in my field is a request to ignore a correction... or to, in essence, do nothing. Also from the Latin, per the Googz.

Avatar 3:13pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Either way, this is the stuff to get a body through sleep deprivation. Large yay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm sphere:

not much Cheri, the OED cites a reference for "Stat" as far back as 1875.
Avatar 3:16pm d¢ pät:

Why don't they just say: "instantly" or "immediately?" And, Hi.

Hey Fabio!
Avatar 3:20pm coelacanth:

Hola Fabio and invincible failures.
unfortunately and fortunately i have only a moment here. (i need to get back to work STAT!)
Avatar 3:20pm d¢ pät:

I guess you end up sounding like an evil scientist or a dick: "I need those charts, INSTANTLY!" Do medical personnel have a fancy way to say, "SILENCE!"
Avatar 3:20pm Chris from DC:

Yay, Agitation Free
Avatar 3:21pm coelacanth:

(first time using that ☝ phrase,though i've heard it used a zillion X)
Avatar 3:22pm coelacanth:

pät,it may be because "stat" is just one syllable...though they could say "now"!
Avatar 3:23pm d¢ pät:

yeah. I guess "hurry the fuck up" is right out.
Avatar 3:25pm coelacanth:

'depends if the patient is conscious or not!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Guido from Cologne:

Guten TZAG everyone!
Avatar 3:26pm d¢ pät:

Do they also have a code to let everyone know they're switching over to frantic language? "this isn't going so well! Twinkle toes! Twinkle toes!!" ok I'll shut up.
Avatar 3:28pm coelacanth:

"code:twinkle toes"..."panic,STAT!"
Avatar 3:33pm coelacanth:

okay,i've blessed this board with enough genie-ass enlightenment for the moment. i'm back to the fields.
Have a nice show!
Avatar 3:34pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

ass enlightenment: that sounds fantastic.
AND: This set is a god-damned joy.
Avatar 3:39pm JakeGould:

Tacos, STAT!
  3:44pm Mary Wing:

I have it on good authority that the number one record that people are looking for at the Record Fair is "that album with Mr. Giant Man on it," heh.
Avatar 3:47pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I've kept my eye open for a decent copy of Voodoo Party for years. Always find tons of James Last LPs I wouldn't touch with a hazmat suit, but never that one. A simple web order would solve this, but that's no fun...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm common:

same here, rev.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Davis:

Manuel Göttsching is making me better
  3:56pm door and sigh:

The onliest place one can tune in to and hear E2-E4. Thanks Fabio, you're making the work day easier with the loooooong Deutsche trax.
Avatar 3:56pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Manuel that ends well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Davis:

i have a good copy of voodoo party. the rest of the album is kind of crap. particularly oh mammy mammy!
Avatar 3:57pm Cecile:

please play this whole record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm chris:

well, maybe not *this* exact record, but i agree with the sentiment, Cecile
Avatar 4:03pm d¢ pät:

My new name for Manuel Gottsching is "Skippy"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm common:

how's it goin' there, skippy? now, go play with your friends.
  4:04pm ?:

not to get too new-agey, but I've always loved how this track morphs and changes without your ever really noticing it. Or maybe it never actually changes!
Avatar 4:04pm d¢ pät:

Sounds good anyway, even with the noise ass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Guido from Cologne:

maybe cleaning before playing?
Avatar 4:06pm Cecile:

I suspect Fabio is quite fastidious about keeping his records clean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm Guido from Cologne:

... well, skips sounded like what we call "booger-skips"
and the cracklig sounded like a half bottle of beer dried out
i might be wrong
  4:10pm door and sigh:

The proto-techno record. For better or worse....
Avatar 4:10pm Cecile:

some pressings are that bad, even on a clean record.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Guido from Cologne:

E2-E4 is re-released on manuel goettschings own MG-Art label.
Looks liek bad distribution.
But available on German EBAY, going for some 16 €uros plus shiping.
Avatar 4:20pm d¢ pät:

crap, I have to get outta here but I don't want to leave Glenn and crew...I wish I had 10 foot speakers and amp that went up to 21...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Guido from Cologne:

@Cecile ... true ... the most annoying pressings.
All reasons to bring them back to the dealer.
what an ugly way to waste pressing plant capacities and snub music lovers.
  4:37pm door and sigh:

Next up... Rhys Cheatham and how...

This show has all the failure a person could possibly want. Thanks, Fabio.

@Cheri - The heavy metal version of the REM album?
Avatar 5:59pm Marcel M:

Its always ok to reference the stooges
Avatar 5:59pm TDK60:

The cops were blocking the streets and stopping the parades. So, heated stand-offs ensued. And the cops charged at folks. Yes, I was there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm i///k///e:

Monster in WHOSE pants? Mine? (looks in pants) Oh yeah, there is.
Avatar 5:59pm Cheri Pi:

Lol KfHP
  6:01pm Hel:

Fabio be careful what you say! Every time i've joked around about my fellow metal people or even rock people that i don't like, i've regretted it. Maybe it's coincidence but bad things happened.
