Evening, kids.
  10:03pm rw:

Hey! Something about the sound of Michael Rother... not sure why but I could listen to it for hours.
  10:06pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Yeah, this opening track is great. Thanks, Dave, for introducing me to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm David L. B. = RR1163:

Davids ! ...others.
Avatar 10:07pm Dave Mandl:

Hey, rw. Yeah, I'm not sure what it is. Soothing?
  10:07pm greyhoos:

What rw said. Off to an especially lovely start, tonight.

Evening, Wendy, David, greyhoos. And thanks.

Heeeeeey Holly, slugluv.

Ellen Fullman. God, I have a disc by her ("Body Music," I think) that I haven't listened to in many years, and had all but forgotten about. Time to revisit. Different from this-- long, much more minimal, droning compositions; if memory serves.

this is mastered differently. i never heard that banjo so prominently before.
Avatar 10:53pm coelacanth:

(that Dr. John, i mean.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

I think I used to follow Momus on livejournal. Which is weird, because I don't own any of his music.
Avatar 10:54pm Dave Mandl:

Could be. It's a recent reissue.
Avatar 10:54pm HollyT:

YAY!! Momus! My favorite one-eyed pop star.
Avatar 10:54pm Dave Mandl:

(I mean the Dr. John.)
  10:54pm rw:

Momus reminds me... at least at moments, of Peter Blegvad. Never heard of him before.
Avatar 10:55pm Dave Mandl:

Does he really have one eye, or just wear a patch?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I had to make sure this wasn't Donovan...
Avatar 10:55pm HollyT:

He does have the eye, I think, but is completely blind in it. Some sort of eye disease.
Avatar 10:56pm Dave Mandl:

Ah, I didn't know that.
Avatar 10:58pm coelacanth:

interesting perspective in that Momus song. i have to go back to that again.
(and i too thought it was Donovan for a sec)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

wigkey: ...'In his lyrics and his other writing he makes seemingly random use of decontextualized pieces of continental (mostly French) philosophy, and has built up a personal world he says is "dominated by values like diversity, orientalism, and a respect for otherness." He is fascinated by identity, Japan, Rome, the avant-garde, time travel and sex'...
Well - aren't we all...
Avatar 10:59pm HollyT:

Via wikipedia: "In December 1997, he contracted acanthamoeba keratitis in his right eye due to a contact lens mishap sustained whilst on holiday in Greece, causing loss of vision on that side."
Avatar 11:00pm Dave Mandl:

Wow, so the eye accident is (relatively) recent. No wonder I didn't know about it.
Avatar 11:01pm Dave Mandl:

Sorry to hear that.
  11:07pm PMD:

Don't make fun of people with one eye!
Avatar 11:09pm HollyT:

I'm writing about a character with one eye, so I am very sensitive to the issues of the monocular population, PMD!
Avatar 11:11pm HollyT:

Thanks for the on-air shout-out, DM
  11:12pm PMD:

@ Holly I meant it kind of as a joke. I know neither Dave not you were making fun
Avatar 11:12pm Dave Mandl:

@Holly: Least I can do.
@PMD: I'd never do that. I'm practically a one-eyed person myself.
  11:13pm rw:

I had a friend when I was in my late teens who had a glass eye. There was a freeway overpass that always freaked him out to drive over. I always thought he was being overly sensitive until I tried driving over it with one eye closed. You lose your depth perception with only one eye and it WAS pretty freaky.
Avatar 11:13pm Dave Mandl:

(One very weak eye. I was actually supposed to wear an eye-patch when I was a kid, but I refused.)
Avatar 11:15pm Dave Mandl:

I don't think I see in full 3-D.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think Dozzy has mastered cat purring as an instrument.
Avatar 11:18pm coelacanth:

i wore a patch over my right eye,as a child,and it helped.
Avatar 11:20pm coelacanth:

...not to rub it in! ...i did plenty of other things i could regret!
Avatar 11:21pm HollyT:

I wore an eye patch for like a week back in high school because I had some kind of gross eye infection or something. I hot-glued sequins all over it. I was a very strange teenager.
Avatar 11:23pm Dave Mandl:

The idea is that you wear a patch over the strong eye to strengthen the weak one, but I wasn't going to walk around with a patch on my eye.
Avatar 11:23pm coelacanth:

ha! well if you got to wear an eye patch you might as well rock it!
  11:23pm rw:

Dave, maybe if it had sequins?
  11:25pm rw:

Okay, maybe not.
Avatar 11:25pm Dave Mandl:

@rw: 'Fraid not.
Avatar 11:27pm slugluv1313:

amblyopia? (believe it or not, i remember this from a story line in "Peanuts" when i was a kid)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm pacific standard simon:

I used to keep a list of famous people with only one eye. There's a surrealist painter who actually painted a prophetic self portrait in which he's missing an eye that he had at the time he did the painting.
Avatar 11:27pm coelacanth:

i certainly was self-conscious...maybe i didn't feel so bad about it 'cause my school had one kid with a hearing-aid; another with crippling arthritis; a few with "coke-bottle glasses"...
or maybe i was just already used-to being a freak.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm linear:

oh man i'm really diggin' the last few tracks!!
Avatar 11:30pm coelacanth:

'luv, that sounds familiar. character # 109 or one of them!
  11:31pm Leela:

Depth perception is the biggest hassle. Worse than Zapp Brannigan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm pacific standard simon:

Here it is. He lost the eye years later when he was hit in the face by another surrealist painter.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

I wear an eyepatch. It's because my eye muscles tire out and go crossed when I try to use my eyes together and I end up seeing double. I'd had vision problems since I went unexplicably crosseyed at 19, and I'd always tried prism glasses. But then out of necessity I had to use an eyepatch a few years ago and really dug it. It's so much easier, cheaper, AND I get to look like a SUPERVILLAIN! It's a win-win-win.
  11:34pm PMD:

I am not too young!
Avatar 11:35pm coelacanth:

a lot of old cash registers used (use?) dot matrix printing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

@Simon: I would love to see that list!
Avatar 11:35pm coelacanth:

'been wondering where you were, Fox!
Avatar 11:37pm coelacanth:

or "mouth harp"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

You mention eyepatches, and I shall appear!
Avatar 11:38pm coelacanth:

Thanks slugluv. it was a major character after all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm pacific standard simon:

@(Eyepatch) Fox - It's buried somewhere in my papers, but it IS very long. Ry Cooder and Peter Falk come immediately to mind.
Avatar 11:39pm coelacanth:

...i think that was one of the peanuts comics i didn't understand,as a child!
  11:42pm DrTerminus:

Hey everyone, I'm new to these parts. I fell down a rabbit hole searching for kindred sounds and have ended up here
Avatar 11:42pm coelacanth:

there are/were several reggae artists who had/have use of just one eye, but the local custom seems to be to not cover it.
Avatar 11:43pm coelacanth:

welcome to the muck at the end of the tunnel, Dr.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

WFMU is like, THE place to find the kindred, as long as your kindred are weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm pacific standard simon:

I myself am severely nearsighted and, with age, have developed permanent floaters that bob and weave in my field of vision like super-powered gnats. Makes reading a challenge.
  11:44pm DrTerminus:

Thank you coe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm pacific standard simon:

I like weird, or so says my t-shirt.
Avatar 11:46pm Dave Mandl:

Welcome, Dr. T.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm pacific standard simon:

Man, this LAMA + Joachim Badenhorst is right up my alley.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm pacific standard simon:

Ha ha - modem noise in the effects!
  11:51pm DrTerminus:

Thank you Dave. Thanks all. Weird is fine by me. I'm loving the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Andrew Waterloo:

WFMU is a place for the misfits among mistits
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm pacific standard simon:

@Andrew - It's a mistake to mistits.
  11:54pm Leela:

Mutants, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

Simon: reading chunks of text is hard for me as well, and I miss devouring books like I used to, but I'm happy to live in an era when so much is adapted to audio. When I'm not listening to WFMU I'm either listening to Big Finish audioplays, or news or something. There's so much to fill your head with, and such ease with which to fill your mobile device!!
Avatar 11:55pm coelacanth:

i saw some bullcrap on "scishow" on boobtube saying floaters are genetic and inevitable; but i'm positive that the majority of my many (& increasing) floaters are the result of all the dust,bugs,etc. i get in my eyes on a regular basis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Andrew Waterloo:

Yah, that typo was little less strategic than usual
Avatar 11:57pm coelacanth:

ha! i didn't even notice it! there must've been a floater in the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm pacific standard simon:

@coelacanth - My moms has the same nearsightedness that I have, and had the same floaters. She had some kind of surgery for them, which I am reluctant to pursue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good night, Dave. See you next time!
Avatar 12:00am coelacanth:

maybe it's genetic some of the time, or the result of learned habits from generation to generation...and maybe some of mine are too; but not them all, i'm sure.
Avatar 12:00am HollyT:

G'nite D, talk soon
Avatar 12:00am coelacanth:

Thanks Dave!
Avatar 12:00am Dave Mandl:

Night, folks. Have a great week!
  12:00am DrTerminus:

Peace Dave
