all John Williams soundtracks sound the same, give or take a few. I like to think of him as the man with one good idea
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm listener james from westwood:

Argh, that question mark belongs outside that quote. Four hours of sleep and a roasting-hot office are not my friends today!

Charlie just said it on mic too about the +plus button thingy, here's the graphic instruction: blogfiles.wfmu.org... Don't forget to hit the +plus botton, and make sure his name shows up UNDER the pulldown menu.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm Parq:

James, probably. I was specifically thinking of the theme from ST-TNG, which I thought was the same as the first movie, and which I in turn thought was John Williams. Oh well.

For a title, I'd go with the mark outside the closing quote if it weren't actually part of the title (e.g, "Hatari!" or "Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?").

@Brian = spring is springing! gonna be in Mad town next weekend maybe Mendota will be open by then?....

@UM: If they belong with the quoted matter, such as the following, I'd keep it inside:

The expression "J'accuse!" has survived for decades after Zola penned it in his article about the Dreyfus Trial.
Avatar 12:29pm ndbob:

afternoon Charlie and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Uncle Michael:

@James: And then I heard my brother holler, "you bastard!"

Is that correct?
Avatar 12:30pm βrian:

<l>Forsooth, who wrote <title>Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?</title>?</l>

Mendota looks damn close, but I guess it depends on a particular rowboat path.
Avatar 12:32pm Flash Strap:

just popped back in and got excited that we were talking about the Dreyfus Affair, before I realized it was just an example for the ongoing discussion of quotation marks and punctuation

I'm teasing my pledge along ... Not quite ready... Tantric giving, don't you know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm annie:

i'm trying to duplicate one of my favorite(?) mistakes; the one in which a comma or period is placed inside a "quote," instead of outside the quotations marks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm listener james from westwood:

@UM: If the exclamation point were part of the film's title, it would go inside the quotes. If the mark is making the whole sentence into an exclamation, as implied by the emphasis on "really," it's OK outside. (If both meanings, you'd only need to place it once, inside.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks James.

Avatar 12:51pm Flash Strap:

so true. he's such a snarling little Rimbaud that whole film, it's a really uncomfortable glory... but man, what a fundamental misreading of Donovan as a person, to perceive him as a threat in any way.

Oh, sadness. I thought was a great tool for strong-arming friends across the pond.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Jeff Golick:

@Flash Strap: I imagine Bob didn't see Donovan as a threat so much as he (Bob) just enjoyed tearing people down from time to time. As sport.

Hi, @Charlie, listeners, and all other Jeffs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Jeff Golick:

I believe the issue with the marathon map goes back to some tweaks google made under the hood of Google Maps, which fugged things up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Hello Charlie & Nothing-Doers. No map? I guess we're one happy FMU World!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Charlie:

belated "hi" to ndBob! Hi Jeff G and Kevin!
Avatar 1:03pm Flash Strap:

@Jeff: while that's definitely true, I think I really do detect a sort of wild obsessive insecurity in the way he encounters all that Donovan media throughout the film, something childish and territorial. I don't think his swipe at Donovan was as purely predatory as some others. Still petty though.

Absolutely love Dylan in that flick though. His maddening exchange with the guy from LIFE is a masterpiece of something

Consider the care that goes into Charlie's playlists every week. Hand-selected images...a personal missive via email...the musical tapestry...the spoken poetry. It's hard to put a price on it...but $75 sounds about right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Michael:

Like this!
Avatar 1:34pm Flash Strap:

@UM: I will say, the world is largely made up of things that empathize with Mr. Jones, and that I have no problem with his ass getting raked over the coals without mercy from time to time; it's a healthy social tonic, and the heart of the revolutionary spirit. What gives me chuckles about that scene is how ineffectively Bob handles the rake, how much he himself gets burned despite his best efforts. But he WAS so damn young
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm listener james from westwood:

Hell yes, Jeff, by all means the weekly email! Charlie's is one of my very favorite regular missives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Jeff Golick:

Let's all be glad camera crews were not following us around at age twenty-something, and then the footage used for documentaries.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Uncle Michael:

I've always been struck by the fact that Mr. Jones was just a poor slob being sent to do a job, and who was trying to do his best. He wasn't a Life magazine logo, he was a person...and one that wasn't there to do Dylan any harm. He was in an untenable position if his subject was intent on taking the piss out of him.
