Spazzing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Carmichael:

OK, that was strange. I just commented on Dave the Spazz's brief board. Hi Adriene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm chris:

whew. that was a weird playlist issue. hi, Adriene and folks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Dave in Vermont:

based on the show title I conjecture that playlist glitch may have been intentional
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Kat in Chicago:

I was wondering that myself, Dave
Avatar 6:07pm dale:

isn't centralia the town that is burning?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hello, Adreine. Got any room for some plain old egregious technical errors?
Avatar 6:09pm northguineahills:

@dale: yep!

manu choa
Avatar 6:11pm dale:

bought thhis cd when it came out and can't recall one other song from it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm chris:

manu is so great. his production on miriam and amadou's album is great as well.
Avatar 6:23pm northguineahills:

about 30 km from my home town, there was a town in the early 60s that was bought by Dupont for strip mining. I only found out about by finding some old USGS maps in the library. So, home from college one holiday, a friend of mine took his father's truck and we went to where the old state road was covered by barbed wire, So, we went around and drove through the barbed wire. The street grid was still, there (once we found it), albeit overgrown. We found building foundations, we spend the day exploring, and dodging Dupont employees. We decided to go out the main gate, as since his father was a civil engineer, there were two hard hats in the truck. It worked. That's my story of finding the lost city of Hugh, FL.

sweet, ngh!
Avatar 6:26pm JakeGould:

Hey Adriene! Have been listening via the archives and I really like this show. So dense for 1 hour yet easy to get into.
Avatar 6:26pm cosmic matrix:

oooooh boards of canada fodder!
Avatar 6:27pm dale:

neat story north guinea hills!
Avatar 6:27pm dale:

i wonder what love canal looks like now.
Avatar 6:29pm northguineahills:

Ooooohhh, haven't heard this Carl Stone yet!
Avatar 6:30pm JakeGould:

@Dale: As a kid that name “Love Canal” really creeped me out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Rich in Washington:

This is wonderful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Rich in Washington:

I sort of liked that weird late 80s movie Made In USA, a sort of love triangle road picture, with the characters wandering across industrial wastelands like Jones Beach, references to Love Canal, etc. Suitably apocalyptic soundtrack by Sonic Youth.
Avatar 6:34pm dale:

yeah jake - some porno guy probably named the town.
Avatar 6:35pm northguineahills:

@Rich: I got the sndtk in HS, but never saw the the movie....
Avatar 6:36pm dale:

i thought ford was buddies with firestone and wouldn't step on his toes. but then ford was a dick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Rich in Washington:

The soundtrack's better, IMO. But the film's at least unique in its choices of settings.
  6:37pm Dave from Brooklyn:

In fact,although unreported a higher incidence of cancers was found in people who were in the vicinity regularly or whom resided in the 3 Mile Island area
Chernobyl was ,and still is an ecological nightmare.
Fukishima is still spewing radioactive waste into our oceans 5 years later. Renewable Energy NOW!
Avatar 6:39pm northguineahills:

Ironically, the Chernobyl area has the most ecologically diverse thriving wilderness areas in western Ukraine/Southern Belarus, well, actually all of eastern Europe. Lack of humans will allow for that.
  6:40pm Dave from Brooklyn:

Let's not forget the brave Russian pilots who gave their lives fighting Chernobyls fires and Armand Hammer who put considerable capital of his to help people in the aftermath of the Chernobyl Meltdown
Avatar 6:40pm dale:

i keep saying yanni during this song. DAMN clay pigeon.
  6:42pm Dave from Brooklyn:

Word has it that mushrooms are thriving wildly at Chernobyl eating up the radiation!!!!
Avatar 6:43pm JakeGould:

But who will eat the mushrooms?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Krys O.:

Such an amazing show this week. Thank you, Adriene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Krys O.:

It could be that this theme is near and dear to my life and pretty much defines me. ;)
Avatar 6:45pm dale:

i googled chernobyl mushrooms and people are picking them and exporting then to france!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Carmichael:

Neil Innes! Ron Nasty!
  6:46pm Dave from Brooklyn:

Those mushrooms might not be as magical as....well you know
Avatar 6:49pm JakeGould:

You eat those mushrooms and turn into the perceptive hulk. You just stand on the street starting and things and giggling at the colors.
Avatar 6:50pm dale:

i LOVE teresa teng!
Avatar 6:50pm northguineahills:

@Dave: and the firefighters, and the soldiers going in for 45 second shifts to remove radioactive debris.
Avatar 6:51pm dale:

she does a mean version of come on-a-my house.
  6:54pm Dave from Brooklyn:

NGH: yes,true heroes
  6:55pm Hannah:

Great show!
Avatar 6:55pm dale:
