Howdy--lovin' these tunes...
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:11pm Marie:

I've actually always loved rutabagas too, though my mom always called them turnips
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:13pm Marie:

I would love if someone did a show or a segment of a show with songs with vegetables in their title
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 6:15pm blee:

Call any vegetable. Call them by name.
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:15pm Marie:

I, personally, would allow songs that used tomato as the vegetable....

A prune isn't really a vegetable. Cabbage is a vegetable.

I am feeling rather punchy as I just spent hours trying to get one HR dept. to communicate some information to another HR department. Am I alive? Is this reality?
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:18pm Marie:

A prune is definitely not a vegetable; but I love prunes. They have been given a bad rap. They are not just for old people. Of course, there has been some attempt at rebranding--dried plums, anyone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/19/17 6:19pm cklequ:

Some people don't go for prunes.
I dunno.
I've always found that if they

How about a sausage themed show? And I do man, literally, sausage....
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:22pm Marie:

man=mean; hi Jherweg! Music maker!

I'm not a billionaire and it looks like I'm getting a tax cut. I'm good with that.
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:33pm Marie:

I have all my lights on. Be banished long nights! I love Indonesian music too.

good stuff Jherweg
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:34pm Marie:

Anyone see the article in the Washington Post about a pilot who saw a UFO that was then tracked by the pentagon? (back in something like 2004). Very interesting.
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:37pm Marie:

Exponentially lurved that Gas, man. I have got to look that up. I'm gonna stop posting now as I feel I am posting too much. :>)
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 6:37pm CDToaster:

@Marie, I MUST ask, did you or did you not know your fellow commenters were referring to a Zappa song with all the talk about veggies? C'mon now, be honest.
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 6:38pm Dan Bodah:

Really enjoying the show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 6:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Was just thinking of how a little while ago you 'spoke' about how you had a 'radio' show to do just when you were feeling you were tired of Musix
...as consulting the I Ching these days about Music - & its' Symbolism of Exhaustion relating to it - & conversely the inexhaustible Well of the Collective Unconscious that Music can tap for us all...

The temporary tax cut for us peons is a diversion for the massive & permanent cut for the super rich - & the deficit will become massive, & thus our infrastructure & social support systems will (...unbelievably, inconceivably...) get even worse than their present shameful, abysmal state.

Obviously many reputable, even knowledgeable people (pilots, &tc.) have reported flying things even they cannot identify.

Wow this Matt Christensen is gorgeous. Reminds me vaguely of Tor Lundvall
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:38pm Marie:

Hi CD, no, I didn't, really :>)
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 6:39pm CDToaster:

That's very honest of you, Marie, and very commendable...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 6:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...some vegetables are More Equal than others...
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:40pm Marie:

I second Dan's comment and have listened repeatedly to one of Dan's shows devoted to the gamelan in which he played a ton of Indonesian music. Thanks, Dan!
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:41pm Marie:

I honestly don't know Zappa's music that well. I have not heard a lot but did not get into what I heard.
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 6:42pm CDToaster:

@Marie: One of Frank Zappa's most famous songs of all his songs is "Call Any Vegetable" and he sings extensively about prunes, rutabagas, cabbage, and other green things in general. So your buddies were just having some kind hearted fun with you. Check the song out when you can. Have a happy holiday my dear.

Damn, this show goes by quick when it's only an hour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 6:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Marie: Zappa presents a rewarding, but challenging admixture of Musicianship, Humor (both High & Low - both broad & very sharp), & Social Cynicism that is naturally exalted by many as it is distasteful to others...
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:44pm Marie:

well that's sweet of you CD. Thanks. Seems to me the the powerful are shoring up before what they wee as the inevitable liberalization of the country and their fears of becoming the whole minority

whole=white---i hate autocorrect

@Marie: Yes - & just when most things - such as Climate, World Economy, Social Equity & Justice, Technology & Media - & so on - are @ critical junctures of irreversible Unsustainability..
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:49pm Marie:

Because who runs most corporations? White people; particularly white men, and what are the most powerful entities in this country (outside of then government, which they seek to constantly sow doubt about and disempower)
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:51pm Marie:

RR--yes, it is horrifying.
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 6:53pm CDToaster:

@Marie: Do you do any reading? If so, and if you haven't already, you should consider reading, "Women's Reality" which talks extensively about how we live in a White man's world and how it affects Women in particular. It's a Best Seller and I recommend it to many with much appreciation.
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:53pm Marie:

@ RR-- I think we can reverse a lot of things but maybe not the climate; and let's remember, America is not the world...

"Ah, but yet, dawn has forgiveness for the sins men wrought on her" -- The Nice, 1968. (That piece by Felicia Atkinson brought this song to mind.)
  Tue. 12/19/17 6:56pm Marie:

Hi CD, Thanks for the redo. I will def. check that out. I have been listening to a lot of Gloria Steinem on youtube and I have found it so interesting and enlightening. I also love Rebecca Traister who has written about single women and other things about women in society

lovely tune
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 6:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Seems to me the Oligarchy just about has things sewn up. I have no idea how Money Power could be addressed. On the other hand - the idea that we are all isolated & everyone is ignorant & there is no common wisdom or compassion is part of the brainwashing campaign. Someone observed that it's like in the early 20thCentury w/ the decay an Old World Order - the Russian monarchy, & suchlike - people looked about for a New Order - & too many thot the Fascists had a spiffy look & a useful motivation to grasp the reigns...People have the right instinct about the World Order & how they're not being served - but the wrong information about what's going on & what to do about it...

@Marie: Well, then you will love "Women's Reality." I'm a man and I loved it.
