I just dug up an old TWAH playlist that featured Bread's "I Say Again." Pseems as if Pseu is doing her best to make Bread rise again.

A good benchmark, much like 180g vinyl, is 425 gsm card stock
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm mrdonutsu:

What the hell is Bruhzhoot?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Hughie Considine:

"mucilage" is a great word. I like the old card stock like on old jazz albums on Impulse.

you play good music, when you actually get around to it! talk less, rock more please!!

  12:49pm Ochre Ogre:

It's about the delicateness of certain meats, in Italy they usually slice super thin automatically and present it beautifully. But then of course, food is an art there.
Avatar 12:49pm CDToaster:

@mrdonutsu: Prosciutto is the spelling; Pruhzhoot is the pronunciation.
@Hughie: Good luck finding mucilage anymore - too bad.
@Pseu: See-through thin cold cuts are cut that way to increase the air-to-meat ratio. The thinner, the easier it is to "melt in your mouth" or dissolve, or melt. Increasing the surface area ratio enhances the flavor and less likely to get caught in your teeth. I had a restaurant so I'm a foodie and know something about this topic. Glad you asked.

Avatar 12:50pm CDToaster:

@Ochre Ogre: You are super correct. Excellent explanation. Take a hint kids, get your finer meats sliced super thin.
Avatar 12:52pm Pseu Braun:

mta Tony thanks for saving this thread.

Just tuned in and caught up on comment board. Great to hear NGH is progressing! Did not expect a deli disquisition.

@Pseu: Glad to help when I can. It's "an Italian thing."

Howdy everyone! Just stopped in to say hi! was listening to the archive and the magical FB message reminded me that new show was playing, so your announcement was TIMELY :D Now, I'm infecting my new officemate with good music :)

Hey Pseu! Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Cyber Monday! Happy Give a Shit Tuesday!
  12:56pm Ochre Ogre:

Back @ ya CDToaster. Oh and how much better it is when the bread is slightly toasted and warm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

On the subject of food things, do many people put butter on their bread? I really don't. My mom would make a PB&J with butter, but I don't bother with it.
  1:00pm Ochre Ogre:

Cheese sliced a bit thicker acceptable. And those thick textured album covers, love em.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm Hughie Considine:

@CD Toaster, I too lament the passing of mucilage, along with that of the old-school white paste that the strange kid in the back row (Todd) used to eat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm lukavino:

many nuns a flyin' this afternoon, i love it.
Avatar 1:02pm CDToaster:

@Ochre Ogre: OMG, slightly toasted and warm bread sliced thin and spread with extra virgin olive oil is a slice of heaven on earth.
@Pseu: This thread is making me hungry - but I won't eat like a "Gavonne Stunod."
Avatar 1:03pm Pseu Braun:

oh, ngh is not "not gonna happen" or "nnnngggghhhhh"... it's north guinea hills. Just for the rest of you looking at this. I had no idea either

Avatar 1:16pm northguineahills:

@Pseu: i got a staph infection, and made my immune system wacky (couldn't fit my feet in my shoes for a week) which gave psoriasis on 90% of my skin. Infection is gone, and skin is only 20% affected, but I lost 40 lbs and lost my musculature as I could barely move for 3 months. The meds kept me from sleeping during that time, which made things worse, but, now, I just have the residual psoriasis, which is disappearing slowly, otherwise, I feel like my old self again, finally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm the Master:

I LOVE this song! Thanks!
Avatar 1:19pm Roberto:

This is prob my fave post-James-Pete Pretenders song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Bill in W.O.:

Digging it as always, Pseu. But yeah, going old-skool Rotenberry pushed my buttons.

omg! haven't heard this flashing lights in so long :-)
  1:41pm Sam:

You know how certain traffic lights have a green up arrow, meaning you can go straight? When I was a kid I thought it meant you could go straight up in the air, and I thought it was intended for airplanes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Bill in W.O.:

It always bugged me that I could never find anybody who loved WHERE THE CHANGE IS as much as I did, and I tried. It was cool to see Mr. Murphy resurface with the TUNS record, though. It'd been awhile.
Avatar 1:41pm Roberto:

Songs like this Flashing Lights make me want to bass again.

Watch Flo & Eddie in a Youtube video, standing in front of a white board and chronicling their managerial history. One of the funniest thing s I've seen in years.

Pseu, do you know the Mike Oldfield albums Five Miles out, Discovery and Crises? They have some great songs with Maggie Reilly singing in lieu of sister Sally.
  2:17pm VelvetFrog:

Oh man...ONJ's voice makes my heart ache with young teenage crush love/pain every damn time!
  2:18pm Peter:

Thought I could get through life without ever hearing Please Mr Please again. Oh well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Phillippe Bastille:

No matter what FMU program I listen to, someone in my fam has to stick their head in my home office and say "What ARE you listening to?". ONJ did it this time.
  2:22pm leshwatt:

WFMU is like peanut butter on a hamburger. Acquired tastes only.

Or black licorice. You either hate it or LOVE IT.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm crateslinger:

ONJ must love WFMU these days. I don't think she gets airplay anywhere else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm crateslinger:

Pseu's right. People who don't like WFMU only like five or ten bands and listen to them over and over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm crateslinger:

but they hate music

Pseu, you should DJ weddings. I'd hire ya!

Pseu should have her own media empire.
