Never heard Karen C. sing about aliens before. Wow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm NotARealDoctor:

I just got the notification they were delivered on Saturday
  12:22pm bill:

stirring, innit?
Avatar 12:23pm Pseu Braun:

oh, we got other new chairs from someone. OK, I haven't seen yours yet...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm NotARealDoctor:

Oh! Bonus! Backup chairs then! There was a whole debacle where my bank thought it was suspicious I would have furniture shipped to a state where I don't live so the transaction didn't go through.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm NotARealDoctor:

I then proceeded to ignore their phone calls thinking it was some kind of scam and they wound up cancelling my card. It took slightly over a week to get a new debit card.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm NotARealDoctor:

So the chairs were just a LITTLE BIT held up...
Avatar 12:27pm βrian:

Well, what kind of chairs were they?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm NotARealDoctor:

Just ordinary studio chairs, the kind that Ken said would be the most useful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Carmichael:

Heya Pseu and listeners. Love the set so far.
Avatar 12:33pm Pseu Braun:

NARD we need 'em! We have SO many shit stained broke ass chairs that need to be tossed.
Avatar 12:34pm Jeff Moore:

Enjoying this set bigtime, Pseu.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm NotARealDoctor:

Don't say that, Clay might take you literally!
Avatar 12:34pm βrian:

I'd imagine pneumatic salon chairs might be popular. But maybe a little distracting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm dgg:

#1 use of stolen credit cards is for interstate office chair trafficking. I can see why your bank had to briefly wreck your life. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm People Like Us:

they have poo on them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm NotARealDoctor:

Now I know, @dgg! I'm just glad that it was only my fun money account and not my primary checking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Krys O.:

Sadly, Charlie Callas is gone.
  12:40pm O.G. Stalker:

Turns out this is pretty good show. If you like pretty good things, that is.
Avatar 12:41pm Jeff Moore:

So... you were pandering your ass off, and I fell right into it?

I can live with that.
Avatar 12:41pm βrian:

No, you're onion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm dgg:

WFMU should see if they can get the chair set up that allowed Tommy Lee to spin in 360s while playing the drums. That would be exciting for the deejays I think.

Marty Allen has also passed away, age 95.

It's okay to laugh, it was funny because that's not my everyday spending debit card

There’ll be a hell of a legal fight over who inherits rights to Marty Allen’s hair, regardless of what the will says.

this song is great but i can't find it on spotify or youtube. i guess that makes it more special

Hi Pseu, enjoying the program today, harried at work but still catching a few choice songs as I do desk fly-overs.

Hope You have fun! I was just at Joshua tree it was great to be on the West Coast but hard to come back to New Jersey :)
Avatar 1:30pm βrian:

Ugh. The listy thing! I'll be back.
  1:30pm Jim H.:

Joshua Tree!! Was just there in December!
Avatar 1:31pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Pseu, if you are near Palm Springs/Joshua Tree check this out and take a sound bath! integratron.com
  1:34pm Jim H.:

You said rock formations, too. J-Tree is the Mohave & Colorado.
  1:34pm queems:

joshua tree was really neat
  1:35pm Tim in VT:

Where there’s sand...
Avatar 1:35pm V Priceless:

I'm ready to move to Palm Springs.
  1:36pm queems:

palm springs is awesome but in the summer it is like 110 degrees and people can’t go outside
  1:36pm Nellie:

It was so amazing at JT but a bit formidable
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Itzall Ablurr:

Why can't they go outside? Pussies?
  1:38pm queems:

@itzall i don’t know, i guess they want to keep their skin on their bodies
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Itzall Ablurr:

seems reasonable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Itzall Ablurr:

It gets that hot here in de South, but we have the humidity to keep us hydrated.
Avatar 1:39pm βrian:

Just because they own homes there doesn't mean they *summer* there. I mean, right?
  1:39pm queems:

there are a lot of nice pools there though so they seemed to have worked something out
Avatar 1:43pm V Priceless:

I'm all for year-round poolage
Avatar 1:44pm Wild Neil:

Peace all. My God, who is pooping on chairs and WHY?! That is revolting. I guess you were using hyperbole there......
Avatar 1:45pm βrian:

I'd guess those are tea/coffee stains, really. But if you don't know that for sure ...
  1:45pm Jim H.:

Palm oases and the tram up to Mt. San Jacinto. Great place to go in the winter. Not least cause the rattlesnakes are in slo-mo mode.
  1:48pm Jim H.:

There are pics on my blog if anybody's interested I'll post the url
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Michael 98145:

@Jim H, please. love the Coachella Valley...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

There's also the Salton Sea in southern California. Is that a good tourist destination?
Avatar 1:52pm βrian:

What, the animals are segregated?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Michael 98145:

the Salton Sea is quite a bird sanctuary. and a surreal sight in danger of evaporation.
  1:55pm queems:

it’s also a val kilmer movie about speed
Avatar 1:58pm βrian:

Two films, it seems.
  1:58pm Jim H.:

Several entries. Scroll down. Even further you'll find my set from Iceland, if you're interested.
  1:59pm queems:

i really want to go to iceland. i’ll definitely check it out
  2:00pm Jim H.:

Michael 98145: There's the ruins of an old Amusement Park at Salton Sea which is supposed to be really picturesque. Didn't make it there this time out. But it's on the list for next time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Michael 98145:

@JimH, it's quite a place. but be prepared for beaches of dead, dried fish. a location to avoid in the mid-summer...
There is also a lot of geothermal work being done on the south end of the 'sea'.
Avatar 2:05pm βrian:

Stunning photos, Jim H.

  2:15pm Jim H.:

M98145: will have to check out his work (after Pseu's show, natch). Got to see Sigur Ros here last spring. Wow! Unexpectedly amazing live.
  2:17pm Fashion Tashjian:

Filth done proper up and served. Mersi shat Pseu Janis!
  2:17pm Mahall:

Don't know who The Grays are, and I liked the song, but there's a story about the poet WS Auden teaching a class. Student reads a poem, Auden says: Who wrote that? Kid says: I did. Auden: No, Who wrote that poem? Kid: I did. Auden. "TS Eliot wrote that poem!"
So it was with The Grays. That was an Aimee Mann song in all but gender of singer. Good song, liked it, but...
Avatar 2:18pm Pseu Braun:

The Grays was one of the most important supergroups. EVER. In pop. Bow down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Michael 98145:

wish i were able to see this current exhibition : greyartgallery.nyu.edu...
  2:20pm Mahall:

I do. And to you, Pseu. But I just kinda needed to get it off my chest.
There. It's gone.
  2:21pm Jim H.:

exceptional set, Pseu
  2:22pm Mahall:

OK, just googled. JON BRION!
Aimee Mann's mentor. I stand corrected.

Indeed, the Grays are almighty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm doctorjazz:

FOW, one of my faves (this album doesn't get the attention it deserves...). This is a favorite from the album!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm doctorjazz:

(the construction of the tune is bizarre, but not that you'd notice or it would upset pop sensibilities).
  2:26pm Jim H.:

fountains of wayne: the group that outlived the garden shop they took their name from! Again, this set is why I love this show so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm doctorjazz:

You're making it hard for me to get work done, CUT IT OUT!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Michael 98145:
