Hello, this Bill Frisell is lovely

hey, A!
i haven't been asleep in 40 hours and i may not sleep tonight but i hope so so if i disappear i have a reasonable reason.

Is scharpling on tomorrow?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:10am Alejandroool:

40 hrs. damn... I always feel pretty squirrel-y if that happens

scharpling moved to sunday 3-6 AM
  Tue. 1/12/16 12:15am Matt:

Pretty far out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:16am coelacanth:

yeah it's not great.
...it's Bowie's fault! i was close to getting to bed when i got the word. and,worse- i was nursing a hangover all day yesterday after not enough sleep the night before.
(WAH!)
...if you'd asked me a week ago how i'd be affected when David Bowie dies, i would not have suspected it to be this profound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:18am Alejandroool:

ouch, haven't slept well in a couple days now, look forward to demain's un-disturbable day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:18am coelacanth:

$BAGS- and he changed his/her name; and his/her show is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:19am Alejandroool:

I was never a hardcore Bowie fan like some people. but he definitely left his mark in important ways
  Tue. 1/12/16 12:19am MONEYBAG$:

I was up 2 hours past my bedtime when Therese broke the news, then I couldn't sleep
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 12:20am jj.:

i am by no means a bowie hardcore, just a casual lover. wasn't expecting to be slammed by his death, but i was, and am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:21am Alejandroool:

what jj said. listening to the sound of his singing voice when he's really belting it out takes on a whole other feeling now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:26am coelacanth:

Alej - i totally dug albums 3,4,5,&6 then with some reservation until low & heroes, which i loved; then gave him 3 chances and gave up on him with let's dance.
...but now i think i've missed some solid releases here and there.
  Tue. 1/12/16 12:29am daveB from Oakland:

Damn you for doing such a great show, Jesse :) :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:29am coelacanth:

- yeah,and then friday i heard some of his new album and loved it immediately.
maybe that has something to do with why i'm hit so hard. i suddenly, after decades of not caring, was psyched about a Bowie album.
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 12:31am KUMA:

I love this America played with omnichord . Thnx for playing.

I am enjoying Blackstar the more times I hear it... so dark-sounding
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:36am Alejandroool:

Avatar    Tue. 1/12/16 12:38am Snortley:

Seems as if he'd been listening to some Scott Walker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 12:47am coelacanth:

through all the years of not liking his contrived hit songs on commercial radio,and not liking many of his masks, i still read interviews and such; and i should say- the more i learned the more i respected and liked him...so i was very happy when i heard blackstar and it sounds so honest and pure and passionate, because that's what i always wanted from him- having grown to like him as a person.
  Tue. 1/12/16 12:48am daveB from Oakland:

there was definitely some mutual admiration between Scott Walker and Bowie. Look up "1997 Scott Walker birthday greeting to David Bowie". Bowie gets pretty emotional about it.
  Tue. 1/12/16 12:52am ?:

totally identify with bowie's death hitting you harder than expected - i've always liked and appreciated him and returned to some favorites of mine from him in a comfortable way, but never delved deep into his discography like I did with Lou Reed - but now suddenly I'm hit much harder by his death than I expected, in a distant but very real way - harder than I was by Lou Reed's death, in fact - somehow it seems more impossible that Bowie could die. In retrospect he felt kind of foundational - he's the guest room in my house that I only used occasionally but that allowed an occasional intimacy which I took for granted. Now it's like, when friends visit, they're gonna have to not drink too much and leave by 10pm because that guest room is gone..
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 12:53am jj.:

+1 to everything you just said.
  Tue. 1/12/16 12:59am Moon:

Hi Jesse from Oberlin - great show tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:00am JakeGould:

To me, David Bowie dying was weird because… The man charted his whole career perfectly… He timed and choreographed so much in what he did… And then he not only dies a few days after his last album is released… But also a few days after his birthday? I mean… Shit. That is… Shit. Really? Think about that? That’s like a bricklayer dying after the last brick on a building is laid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:01am coelacanth:

ha! yeah the guest room's gone. what happened, it just popped off the house? right, it seems impossible.
...when i first read the news, my reaction was to think it's a hoax!..a Paul McCartney!
...but,no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:07am coelacanth:

Jake,it's like, "okay,it's done.it sounds good and it's been released. now i may die."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:08am coelacanth:

i dig this Yonatan Gat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:08am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Pretty much. That is what “creeps” me out a bit. I’m sad he’s gone but when timing like that happens. Yeesssh. I start to want to look at star charts and such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:15am coelacanth:

i'm open to a lot of things; but the power of the human mind,the mind-body relationship, and the "6th sense", seems to me the most powerful tool we have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:17am coelacanth:

...but there could be physiological explanations too.

...or he's just as extraordinary as he always seemed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:19am Alejandroool:

Unknowable, as this Guardian piece puts it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:26am Alejandroool:

didn't know the story behind Bowie's eyes... So his friend George Underwood punched him in the eye fighting over a girl, left him with the permanently dilated pupil. they stayed friends and he did the artwork for Ziggy Stardust & Hunky Dory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:34am coelacanth:

ha! it's the least he could do right?!
  Tue. 1/12/16 1:43am rw:

Hey kids. Yeah... weird, right?

I like this Elyse W. record. What I've heard of it anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:52am coelacanth:

hi rw...
okay Jesse radio on-lights off. i've taken valerian,melissa, skulcap,tryptophan,melatonin,magnesium,niacin (etc)...and i still might not sleep; but i might, so now i Thank you.
good night everyone.
rest in peace David Bowie...or do whatever it is you do at this point- but with peace.
...same to Paul Bley,Otis Clay, etc etc.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:54am Alejandroool:

night coela, good luck with the ZZZ's
  Tue. 1/12/16 1:55am rw:

Later coelacanth! Hope you get some rest.
Avatar Tue. 1/12/16 1:56am jj.:

sweet dreams (hopefully), coelacanth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 1:57am coelacanth:

Thanks!
(if i dont i'll see you on Samantha's playlist!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/12/16 2:08am Alejandroool:

I'm out for tonight as well (maybe) ZZZ's until the other side. 24 hrs on the nose now of Bowie's passing.
  Tue. 1/12/16 2:11am rw:

'night A! It's been a strange 24 hrs.
