These "Zamaan Ya Sukkar" songs are making me want to re-read Lawrence Durrell's "Alexandria Quartet". So gorgeous!

oh Yes.

Enjoying the music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm steveo:

i think sukkar is "sugar", whence spanish "azucar". anyone know what asmar is?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Passaic River Blues:

@Steveo: Sheila B played "Asmar Ya Sukkar" recently and a commenter who was a native speaker of Egyptian Arabic said it basically translates as something like "Brown Sugar" or "Brown Sweetie".

This is a massive mash-up!
  12:17pm Colin and Danie in Durham, England:

This is great

Avatar 12:38pm Jeff Moore:

Are there any airchecks of "Roger Gordon and Music in Good Taste"?
  12:38pm JakeGould:

@steveo: So you saw the snowman at MoMA? Guess what happened when I finally saw it… IT WAS TEMPORARILY REMOVED BY STAFF!!! I had to deal with all of those offing tourists for nothing!
  12:40pm JakeGould:

@Jeff: “Roger Gordon and Music in Good Taste” and “Big Smith with the Records” are two of the WASPiest names for a DJ I have ever heard. “Whitebread Mayo with Turkey on a Platter: In the Morning.”
Avatar 12:41pm Rocky Horror:

Are these the only 2 courds Thee Open Sex knows?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm steveo:

@jake: omg, really? yeah i saw it. tbh the act of seeing it in person didn't really enhance my understanding of it. i mentioned previously that seeing its extension cord brought to mind pete seeger's apocryphal axe.

(@rh, but those are the correct cords)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm steveo:

*chords
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Rich in Washington:

Now I want to start a band called Wolfman Goldberg.
Avatar 12:44pm Rocky Horror:

LOL @ steveo
  12:44pm JakeGould:

@steveo: I don’t care. I wish to see it in person. And yes, the extension cord might break the illusion. But I’m telling you, go to enough museum exhibits and you can make a hobby out of what Ikea furniture was used for an exhibit. Or which cheap headphones they bought at “Lots Less” is on display.

Can't get over the weirdness of consciousness that we exist and inability to imagine the loss of it. Every mythology, every religion, attempts to make sense of or reconcile us to this fate.
