Avatar 7:38pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar 7:41pm northguineahills:

Electric Company!

(The PBS show and the name of Laner's experimental/ambient electronic project).
Avatar 7:42pm northguineahills:

(Brad Laner from the band Loop)

don't ask my brain, I stopped years ago....
Avatar 7:44pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ah, i was figuring he dated rita moreno.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm chresti:

Hey, I was just listening to Electric Company, earlier today
Avatar 7:47pm northguineahills:

Weird! I'm only in my "C's" for listening to cds in my car (Cornelius to be exact), so, I'm still about a month away from the Electric Company.
Avatar 7:48pm northguineahills:

Although I have an Electric Company transparent colored 10" where the 7" companion fits perfectly in it....
Avatar 7:49pm Kurt Gottschalk:

couldn't you go "company, electric"?
Avatar 7:50pm northguineahills:

Not for this abecedarian...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm chresti:

Is Cex in your C pile?
Avatar 7:53pm Little Danny:

Man that is some discipline NGH
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm chresti:

I dunno, what if you really want to hear zz top?
Avatar 7:57pm Kurt Gottschalk:

was that a request, chrest?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm chresti:

Avatar 8:00pm northguineahills:

@Chresti: The last time I went through my records, it took me 8.5 years to get to ZZ Top (around 2-3 recs per day). When my now wife moved in w/ me, I was going through the Beatles. It took almost 5 weeks, she was going insane and hated me.
Avatar 8:00pm northguineahills:

I do have a Cex cd....
Avatar 8:01pm northguineahills:

(back then, it was all of physical media in abc order, so cassettes, records, cds....)
Avatar 8:02pm northguineahills:

For a scatterbrain like me, it's the only thing I'm OCD about. I thought it was a good idea to rediscover music I may not of liked before, as my tastes change. It worked out well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm chresti:

I do too. It came with Electric company in a swag bundle from KXLU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm chresti:

the cex cd that is
Avatar 8:08pm northguineahills:

I got mine when I djed a show Cex played at. Can't remember if I bought it or if it was given to me. (12 was about 14 years ago.)

Ok, I'm taking a walk in a few minutes, if I don't get back before you sign off, thanks Kurt!
Avatar 8:09pm northguineahills:

I was going to say I haven't heard this Henry Threadgill, but now I know why....
Avatar 8:10pm Kurt Gottschalk:


or are you walking already?
Avatar 8:11pm northguineahills:

The year column clued me in....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm chresti:

Oh Yeah, thank you for the date info, Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm doctorjazz:

  9:21pm V Priceless:

Avatar 9:23pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar 9:29pm coelacanth∅:

VP Kevin from the opening band said he knows people trying to carpool but i'm not confident. he and those he's talking about are around new paltz ny and now i'm in working in connecticut. it might be hard to orchestrate.
i have a legal car but i wont drive it into brooklyn.
- i'm trying not to let it bum me out too much. it could still happen i guess.
Avatar 9:30pm coelacanth∅:

(wow that didn't seem so long as i typed it!)
  9:31pm V Priceless:

how far is NP from NYC?
Avatar 9:36pm coelacanth∅:

i haven't driven it in a few years but it took maybe 1.5 hours...90 miles?
i'm actually a lot closer but not quite along the usual route from new paltz.
  9:39pm V Priceless:

Cool. that’s like from where I am on LI to Asbury Park. Manageable.
Avatar 9:43pm coelacanth∅:

i know, it's not that far. i haven't checked out mass transit because i was told there's nothing that's not extremely complicated but i should find out for myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Webhamster Henry:

There's a bus from Port Authority to New Paltz that runs pretty frequently.
Avatar 9:47pm geezerette:

Another stunning show, Kurt. Thanks for stepping in. :D

Howdy,Coel and all.
  9:50pm Bavid Dowie:

howdy geezerette
Avatar 9:50pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar 9:51pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar 9:55pm Little Danny:

Avatar 9:56pm Little Danny:

  10:03pm Bavid Dowie:

is this that Jamie from your fb wall Bucky?
Avatar 10:31pm Kurt Gottschalk:

sure is!
  6:54pm zm:

The unexpected Joni song soaked up this lazy late afternoon. Hejira overtly personal lyrics but nails all of us. I can't bear the thought what I'd do when she checks out this planet.
