G'TZAG, Joe and everybody! Is this going to be an OST theme show today? It's funny, just picked up 3 OSTs in my travels this weekend - "Across 110th Street", "Short Eyes" (underrated Curtis Mayfield soundtrack), and a reissue of Les Baxter's "Hell's Belles".

That's great, will have to seek out the rest of these covers.

I have been neither here nor there. Existing and not existing all at once. I am Schrödinger's Claw.

I've been listening - just haven't been commenting as often because the show is on while I'm at work and it's been crazy lately having to pack up for the move at the shop. Moving all that vinyl is gonna suck ass. I'm starting to feel the stress.

Heh... thanks, Cken. I'll do my best. Been weight training for the past month and a half to get swole for the move. I'm hoping I won't throw my back out or some other dumb shit.

@Claw! - bend at the knees, and do a bunch of air squats to warm up...good luck with the vinyl move, one of the major cons to having a sizable record collection.

I presume Midnight Express is the reason the movie Airplane! had that gag line about the Turkish prison.
  Mon. 2/1/16 9:34am Claw!:

OMG, Neil, I don't envy that at all. We just have one flight of stairs in this move. But I remember moving my personal collection down three flight of stairs a few years back, and I still haven't psychologically recovered from that.

The synths on Loverboy always threatened to turn into Devo, but then they just kept going on to be Loverboy. I do have a soft spot for "Hot Girls In Love", though. It's kind of irresistibly ridiculous.

I remember drinking beer in a field and somebody else's brother (older brother) says "try this on for size" and plays everybody'w working for the weekend. Meh. Downton Abbey is on PBS, not ABC. And its hard to understand with all the accents and their weird Briishisms. Still, the phrase "mister bates" is always good for a chuckle. He is a badass by the way...

I once spent a weekend hunting for the Sviatoslav Richter performance of Mussourgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition," a live recording from Sofia, Bulgaria, famous for his playing and the audience's incessant coughing and wheezing. It was nowhere to be found in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. I returned home and dropped into my friend's local record store, where a pile of classical used LPs, just acquired, sat on the counter. At the bottom of the pile? No, not "Little Johnny Jewel." It was the Richter LP. Fifty cents.
