SPLASH glub brrrrr

no glubs!!! There's no drowning allowed!

I have an E ticket and I can hold my breath for 45 seconds.

I'm actually on the boards for a change! The past bunch shows I've been in listen only mode

Happy mid-day Meghan! That was just my nosegard falling off.

We're having a monsoon here. We're underwater on dry land,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Carmichael:

I just returned from the ocean, and apparently it's been way over 100 degrees here, and continuing. SPF 10k.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Meghan:

Ohhhh a monsoon..... That is not fun....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Meghan:

Man, I am such not a summer person. I can't take the heat (though I like to cook, so I'm not staying out of the kitchen!)
Avatar 12:35pm northguineahills:

@geezerette: That's what happened down here on Sunday. 4.8 in/122mm of rain in less then three hours. House was surrounded by water and the water got to w/in a foot of my boxes in storage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Uncle Michael:

Never heard this version of I'm Alive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm JtotheK:

arrived just in time to catch the last minute or so of Prins Thomas - hi everyone!
Avatar 12:39pm geezerette:

NGH, but that's more nearly normal in Florida. Not the flooding! But hot, wet summers.
Here it's usually about 20 percent humidity, not 70 percent!

Like this version!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Meghan:

Here to fill those voids for you Uncle Michael! (I hadn't either until recently!)
Avatar 12:42pm geezerette:

Meghan, as long as there's a fan and cold drinks in that kitchen!

Haha, Glimmers sound like they need physicals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Meghan:

I'll tell my nightmare I had the other night.... It was directly related to the heat. ha!
Avatar 12:52pm northguineahills:

When we got hit by Hurricane Mathew, we got under 4 inches of rain in 8 hours. But yes, 80% to 95% relative humidity w/ temps in the high 90sF/high 30sC is the norm. It's why I hate summers here.
Avatar 12:55pm geezerette:

Winters are gorgeous though, or used to be. Still?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Passaic River Blues:

I approve of this song specifically and the concept of cocaine cats in general.
  12:57pm JakeGould:

Avatar 12:58pm geezerette:

That set cooled me off. :)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Carmichael:

@geez, I was in Ventura and it was warm and sticky. Glad to be back in the blast furnace of the Sacramento valley.
Avatar 1:00pm northguineahills:

Winters are only sufferable for retirees, I miss the changing of seasons, I miss sweater weather, I miss snow. It might get down to near freezing once or twice a winter.
Avatar 1:02pm Dave B:

Growing up we had some big industrial fan that went in the upstairs hall window.

That thing was like a Sopwith Camel's engine.
  1:02pm frenchee:

We had the big attic fan setup too. Engineer stepdad and former pilot uncle engineered it to pull a breeze thru the whole house
Avatar 1:03pm Dave B:

Avatar 1:05pm Dave B:

and that whole "serial killer" thing is dying.....

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm Meghan:

hahahaha.... nice one Dave!
Avatar 1:08pm Dave B:

  1:08pm JakeGould:

I grew up near the beach in Brooklyn so it was always about 10 degrees cooler. When I moved into my own places I couldn’t deal with the heat. Now I am in the top floor of a building that is sun soaked in the heat way. I come home to an oven most days during the summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Meghan:

It's the worst! I hate sweating just sitting there..... not doing anything! That is just unfair to me! My poor pup!
Avatar 1:10pm Dave B:

I'm with ya there Jake. I have my top floor AC on a timer just to avoid that...
Avatar 1:10pm geezerette:

Yeah, that's what this city has been like since June, a giant tandoori oven.
Avatar 1:11pm Dave B:

  1:12pm JakeGould:

And my kitchen is the worst. It’s an oven all the time even without the oven on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm The Oscar:

Afternoon, all! I managed to see Tom Tom Club a few years back. Really fun show, but overshadowed by the drunk guy next to us who managed to messily crack his head open on the stage during the encore.
Avatar 1:14pm Dave B:

its all fun and games until someone gets hurt...
Avatar 1:14pm Dave B:

after that its fuckin hilarious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm Meghan:

Ugh, why is there always that one person who loves ruining shows by being.... well, that guy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm The Oscar:

I do find it amusing that, the same summer, I saw Danzig, Deadbolt, and Public Image Ltd, and the most violent show wound up being the Tom Tom Club.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm Passaic River Blues:

Loving this set.
Avatar 1:18pm JakeGould:

What about band groupies who blow bubbles on stage when they get to the side of the stage? I’ve seen that more than once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm drr:

The Oscar: was the drunk guy...Oscar? You'd probably need to be in NYC for that to ring a bell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Meghan:

Oh, I haven't seen that one! I guess I have something to look forward to! ha!

Passaic River- I knew this set was killer when I started to pull the songs. It was exactly what I wanted to hear!
Avatar 1:20pm northguineahills:

My first summer in NYC, I thought I could survive w/o A/C. It topped 100 for a whole week and my computer got fried. I bought an A/C for the next summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm Ike:

Avatar 1:21pm JakeGould:

The funny thing is these ladies (Manic Pixie Dream Girls?) bring a small bottle of bubbles and can barely blow any out on stage… But they stand there and do that. It doesn’t physically ruin the show, but man… It is just sad.
Avatar 1:22pm Dave B:

@Jake - who's Bubbles? The trim co-ordinator?
Avatar 1:23pm JakeGould:

Look, there are now bubble guns and bubble swords out there. Just saying.
Avatar 1:23pm northguineahills:

I heart this Flying Lizards....
Avatar 1:24pm geezerette:

Ike, I literally laugh every time I see your new avatar.

Jake, they must be old groupies. I've seen that too.
Avatar 1:24pm Dave B:

Blow Bubbles....

Avatar 1:26pm geezerette:

Another great set. Air conditioned for our comfort.
Avatar 1:27pm JakeGould:

@geezerette: Nope. These are young gals. Dare I say hipsters? Maybe you can get them off stage by saying, “Hey! Etsy is down!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm The Oscar:

@drr Nah, this was in Boston, at the Paradise. Poor dude had to be taken to an ambulance without hearing the Talking Heads numbers they closed with.
Avatar 1:28pm JakeGould:

Or maybe, “Venmo crashed.”
Avatar 1:29pm geezerette:

Ha, everyone's the star of they're own private reality show now, or an imaginary youtube celebrity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm The Oscar:

@JakeGould I saw some mid-'00s indie band do an in-store performance, and there was a row of late-twentysomethings sitting in the front row with hand puppets. It was legitimately unsettling.
Avatar 1:30pm geezerette:

their... (must wake up!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Meghan:

Ahhhhh, yes, the Paradise. I have had many a show "ruined" there. Like all of the 90's when everyone thought you should slam dance or stage dive to EVERY POSSIBLE BAND.
Avatar 1:32pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm The Oscar:

@Meghan The PiL show I saw that same year had a good amount of assholes who clearly REALLY wanted it to be a Sex Pistols show. Lydon actually had a guy ejected for gobbing onstage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm The Oscar:

Boston was PANDEMONIUM that night. Having lived up here my whole life, it's honestly hard to imagine a place where any large gathering doesn't eventually devolve into a "Yankees suck" chant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Meghan:

Ha! Last time I saw PIL was at Great Woods (which became Tweeter Center and now who knows!) with Sugarcubes and New Order! Noone gobbed at that show, thankfully!
Avatar 1:45pm northguineahills:

Off to lunch, thanks Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Meghan:

enjoy lunch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm The Oscar:

You know, I'm not actually sure what they're calling it now. It was the Tweeter Center when I saw The Who there, the day they announced Entwistle's cause of death (he'd been alive when I bought the ticket!).
Avatar 1:49pm Dave B:

good stuff. Back to the salt mines!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Ike:

For some reason, the phrase "he'd been alive when I bought the ticket!" is making me laugh. I'm a sicko! LOL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks, and give Ted a good skritch and a hello for us all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Ike:

Thanks Meghan. And *I* always find Baltimore inspiring, so hopefully you will too.
