Evening, Ike & Head.
  10:09pm cheri:

ike, tell me what's this thing about the head of a dead ram? you like being gory at times?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm melinda:

I love tinkly-synthy music at this hour.
Avatar 10:14pm Dave Mandl:

@melinda: Glad to oblige.
  10:16pm cheri:

well anyway, dave i'm really enjoying the show!
Avatar 10:16pm Dave Mandl:

@cheri: Thanks. Happy to hear it.
  10:18pm JakeGould:

@cheri: Is there spotting?
  10:21pm cheri:

jake, i'm sorry but what do you mean?
  10:22pm JakeGould:

@cheri: Spotting. Are you experiencing spotting?
  10:23pm cheri:

no jake
  10:24pm JakeGould:

@cheri: What about bloating and distention?
  10:26pm cheri:

not at all, jake but why do you ask?
  10:27pm cheri:

i'm in great health, jake
  10:27pm JakeGould:

@cheri: What about excessive mucus production and ligament pain?
  10:28pm JakeGould:

@cheri: No, something tells me your hiding something and we care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Ike & Ram:

I'm not especially gory, no. The head of the dead ram was brilliantly invoked by Cecile in a classic comments section ("Troll Acres, a planned community") a few years ago.
  10:31pm cheri:

i'm not pregnant, and not hiding anything
  10:33pm JakeGould:

@cheri: Biologically we know you cannot be pregnant but that’s not the point. We have to be realistic here. Okay? So I’m done. It’s your turn to come clean.
  10:34pm cheri:

ike, have you heard the phrase " THAT WAS THEN AND THIS IS NOW?"
  10:36pm JakeGould:

Okay folks… Chill. Be cool. Cheri, that was then and this is now… So when you going to get a regular signed in account and get a cool avatar?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Īke:

Some things cannot change. Some things refuse to change.
  10:36pm cheri:

my life's an open book,got nothing to hide,
  10:39pm JakeGould:

Well, if that’s the case why is it when I said, “Biologically we know you cannot be pregnant but that’s not the point.” you didn’t flinch. That’s a pretty pompous statement for someone to just casually toss out there; an insult in fact if it were not true.
  10:40pm JakeGould:

Look, I’ve been watching “Magnum P.I.” and I’ve learned a lot about how detectives work so forgive me if I stretch my P.I. muscles here.
  10:41pm cheri:

jake to tell you the truth I don't think I need an avatar, i'm happy the way I am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Īke:

So you need a more recent example? I submit for everyone's perusal:
See 9:53, 10:00, and 10:01. I rest my case. Have a great Not Pinko Commie Not May Day, everybody!
  10:44pm JakeGould:

FWIW, if I told a woman they were incapable of childbirth I’d get smacked in the face… Even if they never wanted a child… If they were a woman. Just saying “cheri” whoever you are.
  10:46pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Another subject… Ever go into any decent coffeeshop/bakeries around Sunset Park? They all seem to come and go but are decent for a roll and warm beverage every now and then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Ike:

@Jake, you mean non-Chinese and non-Mex coffeeshops/bakeries? I haven't noticed many besides Green Fig. BTW I noticed your favorite Viet place, at 63rd & 8th, reopened as a branch of Manhattan's Bo Ky, presumably under new management.
  10:50pm listening out there:

Correction time...Dokaka is one person. From Wikipedia: Dokaka is a Japanese beatboxer who performs music solely by multitracking his own voice, generally with one instrument per track. (That is, he records himself mimicking the bass part to a song, then records himself mimicking the drum part in sync with the first recording, and so on.)
  10:50pm cheri:

well I have to check out now, see you all (even ike) soon, goodnight dave!
  10:50pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Nah, I mean the Chinese ones where you can get a hot dog cut in four, wrapped in sweet dough with scallions on it for $1 or so. And cool tip on the Vietnamese place at 63rd and 8th. The old place was… Meh… So maybe the new owners can make it less “Meh…”
Avatar 10:50pm Dave Mandl:

Night, cheri.
Avatar 10:51pm Dave Mandl:

@listening: Thanks for that!
  10:51pm cheri:

thanks for the fun, dave!
  10:51pm listening out there:

I think it was Irwin's program where I first heard Dokaka. Amazing stuff...
Avatar 10:52pm Dave Mandl:

@listening: Yeah, agreed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Ĩkє:

I was about to type "counting down..." after 10:50, but I was too late. Only took 1 minute this time! So silly and played out.
  10:53pm JakeGould:

@Ike: I am kind of proud of my interaction there @10:44.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Ike:

Didn't Bryce have Dokaka on live in the 90s before archives? Or did I dream that?
  10:56pm cheri:

ike, what DO you have against me? I come here to have fun! am I right dave?
  10:58pm JakeGould:

@cheri: And you play games like constantly saying goodbye, pretending you are a woman, pretending you are going to get a real account and all this other nonsense. Whoever you really are, get some help.
Avatar 10:58pm Dave Mandl:

@cheri: I guess. I see funny behavior from you, but mostly on other people's playlists.

I'm not going to give you a hard time if you're not actually being obnoxious during my show, but you do seem to try people's patience.

Hey, bloopy. Not much, pal.

Hang on bloopy! Bloopy, hang on! Hello!

(With apologies to Brautigan)
If I were to live my life
in catfish forms
in scaffolds of dresses and whiskers
at the bottom of a playlist
and you were to come by
one evening
when the Dokaka was shining
down into my dark comments
and stand there at the edge
of my affection
and think, "It’s beautiful
here by this playlist. I wish
somebody loved me,"
I’d love you and be your catfish
friend and drive such lonely
thoughts from your mind....

Doctor Nerve. Holy smokes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hey, Dave and listeners. I'm curious about something: Is bubble tea a popular new thing in New York City? There's a new frozen yogurt place that opened here and they sell it there. Also, what's great/special about bubble tea? I haven't tried the stuff yet.
Avatar 11:08pm Dave Mandl:

@maestroso: Indeed.
  11:09pm JakeGould:

@kenFromHydePark: Bubble tea is still a thing, but not as big as it once was when it first came around like in the mid-2000s. People still like it though. It’s basically just some flavored tea drink—but recipes and flavors can vary—and the “bubbles” are just brown chewy tapioca balls. I personally can live without bubble tea of it disappeared tomorrow. But it is worth trying at least once. Now Thai Iced Tea… I will love that forever!
Avatar 11:10pm Dave Mandl:

@Ken: I don't know that it's such a new thing. Maybe the last 5-ish years in NYC?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Ike:

@KFHP, the profit margins are potentially huge, so tons of places add it to the to-go menu. Usually it's not that good. One or two places make really good iced green tea. The bubbles are superfluous IMO. Usually they're tasteless tapioca. I always ask for no bubbles.
  11:12pm JakeGould:

@Ike: “…the profit margins are potentially huge…” Sugar water is a lucrative business.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Philthy woman:

so fucking good to hear Dave,
  11:19pm ?:

Yes, Dave -- 1928 makes sense. I gather there was a big gamelan craze in the early 20th century. Lots of U.S. university music departments buying up the full array of gamelan instruments. (Found this out the hard way years ago when I went to go see a free gamelan concert at the University of Chicago. Turned out to be a bunch of community non-Asians making use of the Uni's trove of vintage kettle drums & whatnot.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for the tea info. I can make a variety of tea products in my own home for less money and toss some Skittles into it just for fun.
Avatar 11:20pm Dave Mandl:

@Philthy: Thanks! You're living up to your name.
Avatar 11:21pm Dave Mandl:

And thanks for the gamelan info, mystery person.
Avatar 11:21pm Dave Mandl:

@Ken: OMG.
  11:22pm JakeGould:

@KenFromHydePark: Yeah, but without the big straws and the teen/tween gal behind the counter taking your order while browsing their smartphone, you’ll be missing out on the real Bubble Tea experience.
  11:25pm greyhoos:

T'was me, forgetting to enter my moniker. I assume the academic fad had something to do with Debussy and other early modernists who were tripping balls on the gamelan "all-night" open form.
  11:27pm JakeGould:

@greyhoos: Hello!
Avatar 11:29pm Dave Mandl:

@greyhoos: Thanks.
  11:33pm greyhoos:

Hi, Dave! Wonderful show, as always.
  11:33pm cheri:

you know dave I've been thinking real hard, and you're right I DO repeat myself at times, but I'll be working on that in the near future, but at least i'm polite and cause no trouble, as you can say i'm a FUN loving commenter
  11:35pm greyhoos:

And I suppose "tripping balls" isn't the most appropriate term in this context. But after all this talk about bubble tea...
Avatar 11:37pm Dave Mandl:

@cheri: Sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm pacific standard simon:

'Tripping bells', I think you meant.
  11:37pm JakeGould:

@greyhoos: To be fair, the older I get the more I realize that some artists/creators were high as a kite when they created their work. I mean some might have studied their craft straight and clean, but then one day they “tripped balls” and just connected things in fun new ways.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm pacific standard simon:

One word: absinthe.
  11:41pm JakeGould:

@PSS: I drank some absinthe once. Holy crap was I drunk… Yet aware. Man, wow…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm pacific standard simon:

Post-impressionism and cubism -- the golden haze age.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm pacific standard simon:

Why a duck?
  11:45pm greyhoos:

Yes, if you're talking late 19th century France, chances are absinthe had something to do with it.
  11:49pm greyhoos:

@Jake: Never had it, myself, only read about it & the holy-shitness of its effects. But I remember back in the '90s when some Czech distillery started brewing the stuff after it'd been banned for over a century. Banned because too many alcohol-poisoning deaths were associated with the stuff. Might've been because an ingredient in its earlier form was wormwood...which is effectively a toxin. Or so I heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm pacific standard simon:

Way cool tune, Dave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Philthy woman:

Cause I typed the f word in full ? I know you can't speak that on air but I thought/hope it's no problem-
we comment freely? Ofcourse, if we are not trying to be assholes too eachother which does not require cursing... True Q though I dont wanna mess with your great show
Avatar 11:53pm Dave Mandl:

@Philthy: No, it's no problem at all here. I was just joking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm pacific standard simon:

@Philthy woman - Just try making some fart jokes here and see how fast the hammer comes down. ;)
  11:54pm JakeGould:

@greyhoos: Pretty sure what I drank was not wormwood. Don’t believe it is legal to make it with wormwood anymore. But if it happened in Eastern Europe, I can believe they would much with wormwood or some other strong/toxic alcohol. Every few years there’s some rash of alcohol related deaths in Eastern Europe due to toxic alcohol being mixed in a drink.
Avatar 11:56pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: No, it's all good. As long as you don't insult/offend anyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm pacific standard simon:

If it's not made with wormwood, I'm not sure how it can be called absinthe, rather than Ouzo or Pernod or some other anise based liquor.
  11:57pm Listener Robert:

I'm offended by the lack of insults here.
  11:57pm rw:

Dave! Thank you for another terrific couple hours of radio and for coming in on this Labor Day weekend. Have a good holiday and a great week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm maestroso:

Well Dave, I've been planning to break away to watch a concert video, but may as well listen until the end. Very great programming Mr. Mandl!

My behavior is an insult to my own intelligence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I may try their bubble tea the next time the kids & I go out for pizza. The local pizza place bought the adjoining space and sells the yogurt & tea there. Good night!
  12:00am JakeGould:

Pizza, yogurt and tea! Oh my!
