Avatar 9:07pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, maybe I'll stay put for awhile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm cklequ:

Hello from Monty Hall (in between bands). Always like a 1984 reference.
Avatar 9:56pm Franco Twinkie:

Hello Daniel. Excuse my poor etiquette, but when I'm hungry I'm poor company. Now I'm going to pay the price.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Daniel Blumin:

Tables! Hello!

Franco, this here should aid digestion. Full speed ahead!

Avatar 10:10pm northguineahills:

That was really raw for Hugh Hopper! Me likes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm fleep:

Franco, we are near a canyon mouth that pulls air from the ocean. The wind today was a relief.
  10:12pm chresti:

Nice selection
  10:13pm Mister Eddie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm melinda:

Nice to hear this Opal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm melinda:

I should have chosen a word other than 'nice'
  10:19pm chresti:

fleep, is the wind onshore or offshore?

If it is onshore can I come over?
Avatar 10:19pm coelacanth∅:

melinda, "rad"?
Avatar 10:20pm Franco Twinkie:

Saw Kendra with the Dream Syndicate a few months ago. She was amazing.
  10:20pm Mike Wolf:

Daniel you're not my only friend, but you're one of them. Okay thanks for the Opal.
  10:20pm chresti:

Nice brassy quality voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm melinda:

Rad is good.
  10:21pm chresti:

It’s nice to be nice
Avatar 10:21pm coelacanth∅:

and all along i thought opal had one album and never considered that there may be more opal one day
Avatar 10:22pm coelacanth∅:

(and i see that that came out in 1989? i'm bewildered.)
Avatar 10:23pm Franco Twinkie:

Apparently there is all kinds of stuff still in the can.
Avatar 10:25pm coelacanth∅:

that actually makes sense Franco, considering the tumultuous life of opal. like they just dropped everything and ran. i just never thought about it somehow.
  10:27pm chresti:

Awesome rad fantastique!
  10:28pm chresti:

Supremely nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Daniel Blumin:

Hola, ngh, Midnight Pizza, and Mister Eddie!

  10:29pm chresti:

Sublime is it
Avatar 10:29pm coelacanth∅:

... yes, simply...and divine.
  10:30pm chresti:

The end!!
  10:30pm chresti:

Or rather, It’s the end!
Avatar 10:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, I always thought it was a ploy by David Roback to be all mysterioso.
  10:31pm chresti:

I’m starting to get tangled up in superlatives
Avatar 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

you might be onto something Franco
Avatar 10:32pm Franco Twinkie:

I know how these guys think.
Avatar 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

there are worse things to be tangled up in chresti. that's why i only mess with the regular latives.
Avatar 10:34pm Franco Twinkie:

Kendra just split. Apparently she couldn't put up with the nonsense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm fleep:

chresti, it's onshore, it's cooler air from the basin. heat differential. thermodynamics. science.
  10:34pm chresti:

Great to actually comprehend the French a little bit
Avatar 10:35pm northguineahills:

Going to boing a way for a bit, will be back!
  10:36pm chresti:

Song is the best way to learn a language -my French teacher would say
Avatar 10:36pm coelacanth∅:

right Franco that's why it shouldn't surprise me that there's stuff that just got left behind.
Avatar 10:37pm coelacanth∅:

i used to be with a woman who learned english primarily by listening to abba records, when she was around 9.
Avatar 10:38pm Franco Twinkie:

A lot of these guys want to be Roky or Skip Spence without paying the price.
Avatar 10:39pm coelacanth∅:

i think Roky paid a premium
  10:40pm chresti:

Fleep I’m a big fan of onshore flow and marine layer.
As well as cold fronts
Avatar 10:40pm Franco Twinkie:

They threw him a rope at the last minute.
  10:41pm chresti:

Chop shop is a good name
Avatar 10:41pm coelacanth∅:

yeah. i guess if they threw Skip a rope he couldn't grab it
Avatar 10:42pm Franco Twinkie:

Only if there was a cute girl at the other end.
  10:44pm chresti:

Was she Swedish ?@coelacanthe
Avatar 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

ha, yeah? i don't know much about him. 'don't know why some people have called him genius. -not because i deny it, but i'm somewhat ignorant about him.

Packaging for Afternoon Hours is gorgeous nedmilligan.bandcamp.com
Avatar 10:48pm Franco Twinkie:

I love Skip. not that long ago Chresti and myself were driving across the Oakland Bay Bridge listening to Oar. Never has a record sounded so right.
  10:49pm chresti:

It was88 here today- enough for me to shelter in space
Avatar 10:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Genius is the wrong word, I would call him a natural phenomena.
Avatar 10:52pm coelacanth∅:

i just bookmarked that album,Franco. i've never heard it.

fleep that's magnificent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Cooh John:

Guten abend Daniel und wunderschnappers.
Avatar 10:58pm Franco Twinkie:

I found this 45 at the Amoeba in Berkeley called All My life I Loved You that's pure ragged glory. And check this out - the flip side is music for the X-Files that was never used...because it was to creepy!

  11:10pm Robert Tables:

Is there a problem?
  11:13pm chresti:

I like it when the layers are slightly on top of each other forming different words, almost- to be or not to be a problem
Avatar 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

this sounds like my friend Frank a week ago
Avatar 11:15pm coelacanth∅:

it's funny when you see someone who doesn't look or act sick and he starts talking like nothing's up but he sounds like this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm fleep:

especially if he doesn't speak French

-i live close to fuel station food mart kinda thing and i'm considering fake bullshit chocolate, like a kitkat or something. they don't have any good chocolate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm chresti:

good to keep a pound in the freezer for emergencies
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm chresti:

I used to get the chocolate ice cubes at the 7-11
Avatar 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

that only works with just okay chocolate.
...i had a 1/2 lb of good chocolate 3 days ago but i've been home most of the week and ate it all in 2 days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm chresti:

do you have trader joes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm melinda:

I have super-dark chocolate on hand almost all the time, it used to seem yucky and pointless and now it is my favorite thing.
Avatar 11:48pm coelacanth∅:

i go to a trader joes near where i work, 75 miles from here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm chresti:

yipes! how long is your commute?
Avatar 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

melinda that's my jam. they know in the chocolate shop that whatever i ask for it's the dark, not the milk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm chresti:

the darker the better
Avatar 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

75 miles. tj is another 5 further. i stay down there for a few days so it's worth it.

Thanks for the tunes Daniel!
  11:55pm Robert Tables:

I like the lighter stuff too, but generally not below 85% or so.
Avatar 11:55pm coelacanth∅:

fleep i had to look that up and i want some!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm chresti:

I used to go for bakers semi sweet chocolate until I noticed that it was kind of stale
Avatar 11:56pm coelacanth∅:

i like as low as about 73% if it's good quality
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm fleep:

Swanky show tonight, thanks DB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm melinda:

Good quality 70-80% is yummy, but then I eat more and it's too much sugar.

yes! Top of the line show!

I've tried stevia sweetened chocolate that was ok-kind of above a comfortable price point though
Avatar 12:00am coelacanth∅:

somebody else from my past was where i heard "full-on" first. she used it as a superlative, like "this show's pretty full-on"
