Welcome to another week of Persuasion Salad. Ready to toss your salad today with tunes of imperfection bordering on perfection.

quack? is this Otis? oww yes it's his show alright!
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:01pm Mr Fab:

Phew, we're on! Hopefully the archives can be (friendly) persuaded to record all of Georgy's show so we can hear it's final minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:01pm Rich in Washington:

This album's been on my Discogs wantlist since I've been on Discogs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:02pm Otis Fodder:

Lots of 365 Days type tunes to bring in the new year today. Silly Fun Day.

i like your avatar grantbob - is that your own tiki mug/cocktail ware collection?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:07pm Artie:

So bouncy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:07pm Otis Fodder:

I was singing this song most of this past week, Little Willy. Sticks in the head.

The Sweet for living-room organ?! Boo-YAH!

That salad looks like something from the Gallery of Regrettable Food lileks.com...

@mr.fab It's a Bosko Bob and some other stuff on my shelves :)
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:09pm Oliverrr:

Mosquito Festival ?! .. yeeehaw !!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:09pm Otis Fodder:

I love that gallery. Thanks for the reminder, been a few years since I visited. LOVE LILEKS !

Slap back that mosquito!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:11pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks to (RIP) Citizen Kafka for turning me on to Danny Guglielmi and Mosquito Festival on a CDR/Zine comp Americana Vol 1 many many years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:11pm Rich in Washington:

speaking of regrettable food, remember the site (maybe Tumblr) This Is Why You're Fat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:11pm Otis Fodder:

Henry, digging your avatar gif.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:13pm grantbob:

Evidently "Perfection Salad" dates back to the early 1900's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:14pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks Otis! It's re-engineered from an old WFMU-TV bumper I made in the 90s. Oh yeah, I also wrote the animation software (for Amiga).
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:16pm Martinibomb:

yup bathroom break music for djs. Maybe there's a market?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:16pm Webhamster Henry:

American Pie, Alice's Restaurant, any old Grateful Dead cut...
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:17pm grantbob:

I always used Bela Lugosi's Dead by Bauhaus.

Thanks Henry. I don't recall seeing that post, will check out now! Here is the Discogs entry I added for CK's comp, www.discogs.com...

Phuck pronounced Fook
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:34pm Webhamster Henry:

A show of organ/synth demo records and flexis would be nice. But tedious.
Unless of course you play Mr. Bach Meets Batman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:38pm Webhamster Henry:

Mrs. Elva. Miller was a live wire.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:40pm Martinibomb:

that cha cha cha she does at the end is sooo charming
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:47pm Webhamster Henry:

This is the sick cross breeding of Industrial Musicals, Kiddie records and anthropomorphic PSAs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:49pm Webhamster Henry:

Brian Dewan and I did a live show last April of cautionary songs and PSAs, and happy songs about gruesome deaths.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:50pm Martinibomb:

I like the TAS 1000 I keep that album in my road kit at all times.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:51pm glenn:

well, if marta was from vancouver, it wouldn't be unusual for her to change her mind from one starbucks to the next.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 3:55pm Martinibomb:

Did Tipsy ever play live?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 3:56pm Otis Fodder:

They did, but I never caught Tipsy live. I used to have a bootleg cassette of Tipsy at Great American Music Hall in SF. God knows what happened to it. I also know Tipsy played tradeMark's wedding (ECC!)
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:03pm Martinibomb:

Oh they did? Dang that's pretty hawt having them do your wedding
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:04pm Martinibomb:

I would have loved to see what their live setup was like
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:07pm Martinibomb:

I love Ernie Kovacs too! I tried finding that Jeff Goldblum tv movie but have not been able to locate a copy.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:26pm Martinibomb:

Satan turned adam into a computer? lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:27pm Otis Fodder:

Omni put out a great Rydgren comp a couple of years ago on CD, www.discogs.com...
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:28pm Martinibomb:

I want to write a christian country louven bros style song around the title " Satan turned Adam into a Computer."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:29pm Otis Fodder:

It screams to be sampled.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:30pm Mr Fab:

or: "A Computer Turned Adam Into Satan." THAT i would believe.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:31pm Martinibomb:

@MrFab yes you're right that makes more sense
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:32pm Mr Fab:

"7 years old and 115 lbs"?! Don't sound so "li'l" to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:34pm Webhamster Henry:

oog.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:35pm Mr Fab:

on the 7th day, God rested. Why would an all-powerful being need to rest? HOW does he rest?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:36pm Rich in Washington:

I wonder if Mark FOx is still doing it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:37pm Otis Fodder:

I recently heard Mark Fox passed away.

I like how there's a comment on the guestbook by someone who looks like he's angling for some Lil' Marky records!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:40pm Rich in Washington:

I've got that Omni double disc comp. It's pretty amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:41pm Otis Fodder:

Yeaaaa Rich! It's so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:49pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm convinced.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 4:52pm glenn:

you're in montreal, otis? how about some madame bolduc sometime?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:55pm Otis Fodder:

I'll have to pick up some, usually pass on it. I see it a lot in the crates, any song recommendations for Bolduc?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 4:58pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow. That's where M.D.C. got the sample for Chicken Squawk.

Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 5:04pm Don-O:

I'm gittin' beat to death here.....
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 5:05pm Don-O:

Speaking of 'Get Off II', does The Credibility Gap do a couple of tracks on that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:07pm Otis Fodder:

Don-O ... I don't think so, no. Checking... www.discogs.com...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:18pm Rich in Washington:

oh man!
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 5:19pm Martinibomb:

TV themes that sing everything about the show maybe classify as sub-genre of song poems?
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 5:31pm Don-O:

ELO-ish alert!! (?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:32pm Otis Fodder:

I am thankful for many things in life. Most thankful for Finnish Schalger.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 5:34pm Don-O:

I thought that ELO cover was a part of the previous track.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 5:35pm Mr Fab:

Do Finnish schlager bands also wear that death-metal clown makeup?

Here was Sport's Kickstarter campaign for the release (for more info + video), www.kickstarter.com...

What's going on here? Playing decent songs? There are plenty of other streams for that!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:43pm Webhamster Henry:

Sport says he's not going to put info on that page anyway:
"I'd like to wish you all Happy Holidays... hope your lives in 2019 are wonderful. Seems like the function of this page is pretty much done for now, so I will not be posting again for the foreseeable future."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:43pm Otis Fodder:

Magnetic Fields and Mrs Miller. Both filed under "M" on the shelf. Ha.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 5:44pm Mr Fab:

Henry: Ha, 'decent songs' are the novelty songs of this stream! Y'know , throw in some 'real music' to freak out everyone expecting more Mrs Miller.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:46pm Otis Fodder:

If anyone has a number of someone to talk to, I'm all ears.

Oh wow. This was around the same time as McCartney II.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:53pm Otis Fodder:

B-Side to a boring song, Waterfalls. Worth checking out just for the B and super cheap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:53pm Rich in Washington:

It's from that album. For some reason I blanked on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/4/19 5:54pm Otis Fodder:

Yea, I think it was on the CD reissue, I recall.
Avatar Fri. 1/4/19 5:54pm Don-O:

I think is in that 2-CD re-release from a couple of years ago.

Ah. That makes sense. I love that album. I should track down that CD.
