Indian summer (n.)
"spell of warm, dry, hazy weather after the first frost" (happening anywhere from mid-September to nearly December, according to location), 1774, North American English (also used in eastern Canada), perhaps so called because it was first noted in regions then still inhabited by Indians, in the upper Mississippi valley west of the Appalachians, or because the Indians first described it to the Europeans. No evidence connects it with the color of fall leaves, or to a season of renewed Indian attacks on settlements due to renewed warm weather (a widespread explanation dating at least to the 1820s).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm steveo:

i've been wondering if that's an offensive term, but I guess it's not (Hi Meghan!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Meghan:

Ha! Nope, it's the joys of what we are sort of experiencing now.... though I think now we are calling it "Climate Change"! haha Hey there Steveo!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Parq:

I would need several minutes to calculate the number of months I've starting without saying "Rabbit Rabbit." No wonder things have turned out this way!
Avatar 12:40pm Jeff:

...except there's no need to say "gin Martini", since a Martini is a gin drink.

That thing people call a "vodka Martini"? Not a Martini. Just an abomination.
Avatar 12:42pm geezerette:

Happy Indigenous Peoples Summer!
Farewell Mr. Hefner, may busty angels sing jazz in your grotto of clouds. Or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Meghan:

While bartending, I always asked gin or vodka.... as most people drink some abomination of a martini.... There shouldn't be chocolate or fruit flavoring. Though my favorite is when people order a dirty martini and then say- It's so strong..... Yeah, it's pure alcohol. and yeah, it's salty. That is exactly what you ordered!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Michael 98145:

hey, gz'ette. that's probably gonna be -some- funeral, huh?
Avatar 12:50pm Jeff:

Oh, I know - when you're actually doing bartending as a job, you need to give the people what they want. Since I'm an amateur cocktail-maker (see the base definition of amateur - for the love of it), I get to impose my opinions on whatever I serve.

I do remember one time I was at a party, a neighbor asked for a Martini, I made one, and he practically choked on it. "This has gin in it!"

I wasn't even trying to be a dick (that time). I'd totally forgotten that people like "vodka Martinis", and especially it hadn't occurred to me that the word "Martini", no modifier, might mean a vodka drink in anyone's mind.
Avatar 12:50pm geezerette:

Yeah,Michael, let's crash it and count the blondes who love long walks on the beach and are astro-physicists in their spare time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Parq:

Not having any taste for gin, I am fine with vodka substituted for it in an otherwise properly made martini, gimlet, etc. What yanks my chain is this new trend of throwing in any ingredients that amuse you and calling it a martini as long as it's served in conical stemware.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Michael 98145:

being a heathen, i enjoy my alcohol neat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Meghan:

mmmmmm, I used to hate gin, but then it became my summer go to. I think there are many types of gins, so you could easily find one that makes you happy.... (I personally am not a fan of Hendricks, for example)
Avatar 12:54pm Jeff:

In a local bar a few nights ago, I heard someone order a "vodka soda".

What the everloving fuck is that about? That's something I (blessedly) had had no conception anyone might drink before that. Just slightly off-tasting alcoholic fizzy water - eww.

It it had been a proper cocktail bar, I believe it would have been entirely proper to 86 them for that order.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Michael 98145:

btw, this is great music. thanx.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Meghan:

Oh! I have an answer for that! That is a drink you order to be able to drink longer. I got a lot of those orders in the past. It's like drinking Bud Light all night. You don't get drunk as fast. At the Pixies, one of the women in our group ordered a tequila and soda. That was a new one for me.

Vodka soda with a lemon or lime is refreshing and low calorie. It’s great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Ike:

I like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Meghan:

Thank YOU Michael!
Avatar 12:56pm Jeff:

Gin can be so bracing and refreshing. And the botanicals and the dry-Vermouth funk and some olive brine are a very particular good thing which makes drinking a cocktail glass full of cold practically-pure liquor a decent experience.
Avatar 12:56pm geezerette:

The music's so good that I'm listening even though the amp croaked last night!
Avatar 12:57pm PsychopathJimFields:

Hi Meghan!
Hi everyone!

Never been a gin drinker. The first time I tried gin, it was Two Guys Chicken Barn house brand. Tasted like plastic.
Avatar 12:58pm Jeff:

Oh, yeah - and of course I'm digging the music even though I'm going off on an entirely unrelated different series of rants!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Meghan:

@Geezerette- OH NO!!!

@Psychopath Jim Fields- Everything about that name screams - RUN AWAY!!!!
Avatar 12:59pm Jeff:

Hey, Jim!

Your panegyric to gin is duly noted and filed away for future use.

sippin', sippin', sippin' into the fuuuuuuture!!! cheers!
Avatar 1:10pm Jeff:

Cool, @Parq. Note that I've found that people who've been convinced they hate gin often actually like the gin-and-lemon-juice cocktails I serve them. The gin botanicals are an essential part of the drink, making it more brisk, but aren't so far forward as to overwhelm.

A good Aviation does this well. If you aren't afeared of a little absinthe as well, check out the Corpse Reviver #2.

Without an amp EVERYTHING sounds like (actual) Insect Surfers.

I always loved! these type of tracks off hello nasty. One of my favorite albums

@michael Ohhhh, yeah, I haven't listened yet, that's on my todo list. Guess we better get our checkbooks ready
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Michael 98145:

<rant on> as a downstreamer, i can't fathom why streaming should be costly, given the amount of commercial crap being streamed everywhere ... <rant paused>
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm Michael 98145:

i need some coffee
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Meghan:

Coffee break to continue rant? Sadly, streaming is expensive, as well as archives! Think of it as the amount of shows on regular stream, along with alternate streams, podcasts, etc, going back to early 2000's..... That is a lot of data!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm steveo:

did Ken put a dollar per hour on streaming?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm steveo:

i might owe a lot

If I were there I'd go to both. You know they'll be great. :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Michael 98145:

yes, this has been a great show ...

<resume rant> The cost of data storage is dropping like a rock, and Amazon doesn't need to rip-off our WFMU to provide your essential service to us !! They have enough income elsewhere. :) <pause rant>

I forbid this show to end!!
