Nice lift-off ...

Afternoon, Liz!

I just read the artist name real fast and thought it said "Big and Rich"…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Liz Berg:

Hi guys, really digging this gorgeous long jam today for some reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Dave in Vermont:

Lovely start, Liz.

That bass growl … I thought it was the earth tampers across the street.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Howdy, Liz. Dirty Beaches seems like soft snowfall, set to music. I don't see any snow outside, however.

Lam Phaen Sak (Kabua) Bin is my jam

New Jeff! Excuse me while I run and buy this…

I saw Jeffrey Lewis do a show in a backyard in Santa Cruz last year, and then he stayed in a sleeping bag on my floor. Very informative show/life experience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Liz Berg:

"Bodega love"... which states use the term "bodega"? I certainly never heard it until I moved to NYC from CA.
  1:16pm JakeGould:

@LizBerg: I would say all of the major cities and slacker towns use “bodega.” I only heard “bodega” in NYC in the 1980s when the old corner newsstands and groceries became… Bodegas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I don't recall any bodegas here in Dutchess County. I'll look out for them, though, and report back with the coordinates.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm steve:

"Ate a Pizza"... this is why i listen!
Avatar 1:28pm Dr. Goot:

I concur with Steve, "Ate a Pizza" is quite a tune, thanks Liz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Liz Berg:

I cannot resist a song called "Ate a Pizza." Impossible!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm steve:

im kinda sad, the, by far, best pizza place in my neighborhood recently closed. why can't all pizza places make great pizza? i mean, how complicated is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm steve:

there's what, like 5 ingredients?
  1:39pm nEIL cOMMA wILD:

In the 80's in Syracuse, NY -a college town-I NEVER heard the word Bodega to refer to a small store....In the 90's in NYC on the LES there were "Korean Stores" and there were Bodegas. I do not think Bodega is that prevalent in the USA....unless there is an actual, no kidding Bodega present.
Avatar 1:41pm Chris M.:

cheery article about bodegas: newsfeed.time.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Liz Berg:

I do like the term "party store," too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Tome:

SpecTacULaR ! LizB. !
Avatar 1:46pm Chris M.:

"bodega" is ubiquitous in new york city but the rest of new york (long island and north of the bronx) calls them convenience stores.
  1:48pm M:

I love SPTruth they are friends!
Thanks for playing
  1:53pm JakeGould:

@steve: Way back in the day—like 1970s and 1980s—pretty much ever NYC pizza place was great. Even in my dumpy childhood neighborhood I had the choice of (3) pizza places in 1987 that were all great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm steve:

jake, any idea what the heck happened? this is a mystery that needs to be solved.
  2:11pm JakeGould:

@steve: Neighborhoods change and tastes change. I grew up in Brighton Beach as it was transitioning from being “Lower East Side by the Sea” to the Russian enclave it is now. Gone are the knishes as well.

The deal is back when rents were less and health department laws were less restrictive, anyone could open up a single storefront to make and sell food. So you had a lot of better choices fighting based on quality on the low end of things. Now you can’t just open one store to survive. Notice how many pizza places tare mini-chains now. It’s a quantity business at this point. And then things like the 99 cent slice places pop up and they are like Starbucks and kill the market even more.

So now if you want a decent slice it’s not as easy to get. But if you want a fancy full pie from a brick oven those places are more common.

NYC is just not for small business owners anymore. I mean the pizza place around the corner from me where I grew up had chickens in their backyard that laid the eggs for some of the stuff they served. Non trendy 1970s NYC. You could not get away with that nowadays. Let alone one single store that lasted for decades like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Grok-o-matic:

I wanna have my thought patterns messed with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Grok-o-matic:

Don't listen to music unless you want to have your thought patterns messed with permanently.
  2:14pm JakeGould:

@steve: Which is all to say… The hope for the future is food trucks. Just like in “Blade Runner.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Liz Berg:

NYC's former state of semi-lawlessness (and more affordable rents) bred many amazing small businesses and quasi-legal art and music spaces, good points, Jake.
  2:17pm nEIL cOMMA wILD:

@Liz-You ROCK. GREAT show. Wow. Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm chris:

don't know about landing, feels more like i'm taking off! woo!
  2:19pm Listener142985:

Liz--''Landing'' is really very cool. A caffeine-free afternoon wake-up. Much obliged!
  2:19pm nEIL cOMMA wILD:

We are now in space.
  2:20pm Lyman:

Love the techno "Robot dance party"!!! Thank you Liz!
  2:23pm JakeGould:

@LizBerg: I don’t know if I would say lawlessness was the deal, but I get the idea. It’s also like Chinese food place. In NYC they are all practically those take out hole in the wall places that serve the same junk. Not like the old days when they were all like real restaurants.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm steve:

great points Jake... the place that closed in my neighborhood (Original Carmine's) had been there with the same owner working there every day (Carmine, an old italian guy) since the 80s. they got shut down by the health dept and he decided to retire rather than deal with it.
  2:27pm JakeGould:

@steve: Yup. Typical pattern. Also I don’t take those DoH notices of “cleanliness” seriously anymore since noticing a pattern: Businesses that have been doing fine with no issues for years suddenly became “vermin infested” when real estate development happens. I’m convinced it’s that and suddenly a local business owner falling out of favor with the local community board then then… Pushed out for newer retail. Corrupt money grubbing and power plays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm chris:

herbcraft is always getting phone calls meant for Herb Kraft... unfortunate situation
  2:43pm nEIL cOMMA wILD:

I heard most of the small music venues such as Knitting Factory et al have moved out of Manhattan to Brooklyn...is that the case now? Back in the 90's there were more...
  2:44pm nEIL cOMMA wILD:

Anybody here at Organism at the Mustard Factory in Williamsburg back in 94?
  2:44pm RSy:

I love your show very much.
