Haha, another playlist image with a clock on a wall in it!
Avatar 12:03pm βrian:

And that clock is about to be right — in the eastern time zone, anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Meghan:

hmmmm, do I happen to pick images with clocks in them? I don't think I've noticed this trend, beside the New Years show

This picture comes from a great collection of pictures of women who work in an airplane factory during WW2.... Not sure if this is from that set, but not long ago they released a bunch of these photos....
Avatar 12:09pm Dave B:

Hey there....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm Carmichael:

I can't remember the last time I wiped my roundhouse ... <rimshot>
Avatar 12:11pm Dave B:

That collection was published on the Library of Congress. Shlorpy carried it a few years ago, and then Bored Panda:

greetings Meghan; snorklers
-great photograph!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Parq:

The real Rosie the Riveter? We're now sure it was Norma Parker Frawley and not Geraldine Hoff Doyle, even though we used to be sure it was Doyle. I think we'll probably never really know.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Parq:

Dave B, that Bored Panda page is just tremendous. Thanks.
  12:17pm Mark R:

Really loving your beautiful music today. So dreamy...
Avatar 12:17pm still b/p:

Story this week about passing of woman that Rosie the Riveter was modeled on included description of image as woman with fist raised. Well, yeah, but...

The real Rosie.... www.google.com...

Good afternoon, Meghan and aquatic citizens.

Aren't most of Sigur Ros's titles (and lyrics) actually gibberish.

Hiya, Ms. Meghan, Underwater people, rogue Captain Nemo types, proto-amphibians, wanna-be land-dwellers.
Avatar 12:32pm Dave B:

Did you see EFD's recent posting of his index cards that he uses to keep track of songs he's played?
Avatar 12:33pm northguineahills:

I don't believe I've ever had a physical calendar.

(I have all of my cds in shelves and towers).
  12:34pm Alex in Illinois:

The next time I see a wind-up gramaphone in an antique shop, I might buy it.
Avatar 12:34pm coelacanth∅:

i guess my favorite Neil Diamond song
Avatar 12:34pm northguineahills:

I once created a digital interactive calendar of all the shows I was going to 10 years ago, so my friends knew where to find me.

Still don't have a digital calendar. That's what's inside my brain-casing is for.
Avatar 12:37pm coelacanth∅:

i don't know what's inside my brain casing. whatever it is it's sticky and slippery all at once.
Avatar 12:39pm βrian:

You can buy an analog calendar here:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Meghan:

I'm glad to see kittens being socially just....
Avatar 12:45pm coelacanth∅:

those years that i don't get a calendar for free, a nice one, i don't get a calendar.
Avatar 12:49pm βrian:

Henceforth there will be a work requirement for that calendar.
Avatar 12:52pm still b/p:

For several years now my calendar/planner....dollahhhh store!
Avatar 12:56pm βrian:

Playing Neil Diamond to cover the sound of one's "playing' in the bathtub. That might be a little guilty ...
Avatar 1:00pm coelacanth∅:

i used to get mailed a "murphy's law" calendar every year from a lawyer i used many years ago. that went directly to the free stuff pantry in town. i don't need a calendar that much. i suppose whoever lives at my old address still gets them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Meghan:

I am going to assume it's not Murphy's Law the band.... but if it is, that would be amazing that a lawyer would be sending that.... hehehehe
Avatar 1:03pm still b/p:

Maybe it goes to someone who relies exclusively on the Mayan or Jewish calendar....cuz Murphy’s Law.
Avatar 1:07pm βrian:

Now that clock is the right time for Madison.
Avatar 1:11pm βrian:

Bollywood ≠ Dollywood, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Meghan:

hahaha... both fun
Avatar 1:13pm coelacanth∅:

Meghan you know it's not! but that might be worth saving!
Avatar 1:16pm coelacanth∅:

sb/p haha! i hope so, and i hope such a receiver knows what "murphey's law" is

Way-digging this Rambo Amadeus groove.

I'm getting excited about Marathon, too!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm ⓘⓚⓔ:

Uh oh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm ⓘⓚⓔ:

It's true, some early 90s music is closely related to the music of the 80s, because after all, calendars are arbitrary and time is an illusion! But the early 90s shoegaze scene, for instance, is distinct in some ways from the 80s. Lush, Curve, Swervedriver, and other such bands always sounded more "90s" to me than "80s", but it's all subjective. And you just played Think Tree recently! They put out a good album in 1991.
  1:35pm Mark R:

These King Gizzard guys seem to put out a new album every other month!
  1:36pm queems:

so far i’ve liked pretty much everything i’ve heard from king gizzard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Meghan:

We have been seeing their albums in the new bin a lot lately....

Ike, see, I see all the shoegaze stuff as late 80's, since that was related to the other stuff I was listening to and until grunge killed it all... As for Think Tree, that is just purely Boston for me. Not a time thing, just a memory
  1:38pm Mark R:

And in my experience, they're all good! Love this "Rattlesnake" track--it's totally badass. And there's kind of a Middle Eastern-y thing happening, to my ears.
  1:44pm Mark R:

Really wonderful set, Meghan. Yes, The Fall...(sigh)...I guess he'd been quite ill for some time, but still...
  1:46pm Mark R:

They have something like 32 albums out or something? (and hardly any two of them have identical lineups!)
  1:46pm queems:

oh man piebald. so many memories
  1:48pm Mark R:

I never heard of them, but I'm an ignoramus. And anyway, I like them, so I'm cool, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Parq:

Uncle M@1:23. I was out of the room -- did Meghan mention the Marathon? Have they set dates yet?
  1:53pm Mark R:

Oh just stay as long as you want. What are you making room for--the stream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Meghan:

ha, true..... but I do have to go to work!

Marathon dates start March 4 to March 18
  1:57pm Mark R:

Oh, stupid work! I had to miss a show this week because of stupid work! Stupid work and stupid money and stupid paying bill. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Meghan:

Right? Can't we all just be independently wealthy where we don't have to worry about these things....
  1:59pm Mark R:

It's so stupid!
  2:08pm Warwick joe:

Not to beat a dead horse here, $ is really stupid.
