Listening to Hawaiian music on the stream while waiting for the show to start. Swaying my hands. Hey, why not?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am Uncle Michael:

I'm here for Dark Lunch of the Soul.
Avatar 11:57am Julie:

this is hawaiian?
Avatar 11:58am Julie:

I like that Uncle Michael, lil Burroughs-esque
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58am Parq:

The one before this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am Parq:

"Lani McIntire - Kaneohe" - according to the bot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am Parq:

I could sway my hands to this Bolly too, for that matter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Phillippe Bastille:

Hey there Ms. Julie and friends! This has turned into Thursday afternoon appointment radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm listener james from westwood:

Afternoon, Julie and all! Lovely to hear this Queen track.
Avatar 12:02pm Sem:

Hiya, Julie, dark knights or noughts, Queen-folk, and all.
Avatar 12:02pm Julie:

yay Phillippe I'm so glad to hear that! Also belated hello to earlybirds Parq & Uncle Michael!
Avatar 12:03pm Julie:

hey Sem! Freddie coming through okay?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Parq:

"Boho Rap" (the movie) seems on its way to rehabilitation after the initial negative press, as popular opinion refuses to lie down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Uncle Michael:

Ladyo Gaga, loud and clear.
Avatar 12:05pm Julie:

Queen fans are pretty obsessive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Uncle Michael:

I just don't abide biopics...not a thing I do.
Avatar 12:07pm Julie:

Boho Rap sounds like Lin Manuel Miranda's new musical. I'd go see that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Uncle Michael:

I saw Mary Poppins Returns. I'll be off the LMM treain for a bit.

I'm just a naysayer today, aren't I?
Avatar 12:08pm Julie:

that's all I've seen him in. That & Curb. No way I'm fighting for hamilton tickets.
Avatar 12:11pm Julie:

the guy in Mary Poppins, Ben whatshisname, was the 2nd guy cast as Freddie Mercury, between Cohen & Rami.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm Parq:

I'm with you on biopics, UM. Even if the subject is someone I dig. *Especially* if the subject is someone I dig (Ray Charles and Johnny Cash, e.g.). God, I love the way Prince just explodes at the climax of this track.
Avatar 12:13pm still b/p:

Almost all - maybe ALL - biopics I've seen about creative individuals are soap opera-ish, trite, lacking adequate creative interest.
SOTLACI would be the....terrible acronym.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Phillippe Bastille:

I'm waiting for the home release of the Cheney biopic so I can throw popcorn at the screen and not get tossed
Avatar 12:15pm Julie:

I haven't seen many of them. Bo Rhap is musically and visually stunning. I forgive the bad script and the lies because of that. I'll probably see Rocketman too. But we really need a Marc film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Parq:

Phillipe. thanks for that mental image. Smiling broadly here.
Avatar 12:17pm Julie:

I saw Vice this week. I never felt so strongly like yelling and throwing things at the screen. Freddie Bowie & Prince are gone, Cheney lingers on. Evil is forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Phillippe Bastille:

Parq: we still have butter smears on the screen from watching W
Avatar 12:19pm Julie:

take likeable actors like Carrell, Amy Adams and Rockwell and have them play the most loathsome people. Sheesh. Tyler Perry as Colin Powell was interesting though.
Avatar 12:20pm still b/p:

Buy a crummy second hand TV still good enough for the viewing but suitable for fusillades of popcorn, darts, loogies, shoes....what have you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Phillippe Bastille:

Still b/p Now there's a plan I can get behind
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Parq:

Phillipe, is W any good? (Aside from loathing the principal characters, I mean.) I was never interested in it, but I recently saw some clips that looked interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Phillippe Bastille:

I was disappointed that Josh Brolin was wasted in W. I think the guy is underappreciated. Loved him in No Country for Old Men
Avatar 12:24pm Julie:

I thought W was good. Brolin is in all the marvel things now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Parq:

Wasn't Brolin the guy who played opposite Sean Penn as the guy who killed Harvey Milk? I thought he was really good in that role.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Phillippe Bastille:

W never really looked finished to me. Not Oliver Stone's best. I don't see much of the Marvel stuff, though I loved loved loved the Jessica Jones series. I seem to have a thing for damaged lead characters
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Phillippe Bastille:

Never saw Milk, but imdb says you're dead-on with Brolin
Avatar 12:30pm still b/p:

Brolin is good. Strange in Old Men...so obstinate and fanatical about keeping - the - money! I heard or read him describing the more demanding efforts and effects in shooting Everest, so of course he was hit with the, "Heyyy, you millionaire actor, don't you complain, you...you million dollar actor! How dare you!" Some people are suddenly at such an altitude of indignation that their brains are oxygen-starved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Phillippe Bastille:

Doesn't pay to be famous anymore. One slip-up and you're finished. People seem to be going out of their way to take people down
Avatar 12:38pm still b/p:

Funky dynamic after a celebrity offense...whose judgment of what measurable width on the content and tone of how many apologies. Can be clunky, slippery, goofy. Executed and endured with varying degrees of sense and class, and of success.
Avatar 12:39pm egal:

Cheney is gone (heart attack). There were clones.
Avatar 12:41pm Julie:

we've been saying he's more machine than man now, for, what? 20 years?
Avatar 12:43pm egal:

Hence Darth Cheney.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Phillippe Bastille:

Halliburton gets into animatronics
Avatar 12:45pm still b/p:

I think even Darth Vader says of Cheney mode and legacy, "That dude? Cold man. Cold."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Parq:

I was promised, uh, warned, several times during the first W term, by people claiming to work off unimpeachable (no pun intended) inside information that Cheney was imminently near death. Here we are fucking nearly two decades later and he's still publishing op ed pieces in the Good Grey. He *must* be a cyborg.
Avatar 12:51pm Julie:

wonder what he thinks of the movie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Phillippe Bastille:

I just googled looking for articles about him reacting and couldn't find any. He did not want the movie to be made, however
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Parq:

I'm sure he has privately told the director, producer, etc., to go fuck themselves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Phillippe Bastille:

likely true
Avatar 1:01pm still b/p:

Put that on the resume. And proudly in one's own obit later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm listener james from westwood:

Velvet Goldmine feels here.
Avatar 1:04pm Julie:

I really need to watch that again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Stanley:

I've just figured what was being discussed here.
Cheney can go fuck himself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Stanley:

Apologies, where are my manners.
Hello Julie and listeners.
Avatar 1:09pm geezerette:

What Stanley said. Both times.
Avatar 1:10pm Julie:

hehe Hi Stanley, HI geezerette. AGREED
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Parq:

Everyone see all the media pundits who pointed out in response to the "impeach the motherfucker" incident that Cheney once told a Democratic senator to go fuck himself? Me neither.
Avatar 1:11pm geezerette:

! :D
Avatar 1:11pm Julie:

it's okay when an old white guy says it!

Hello, dark souls.

hi Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Michael 98145:

Cheney needs to be turned off. IMHO.

howdy, friends.

hi Michael!

{ loving this thru headphones }
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Hello Julie & Dark Nights all.
Enjoying these last few songs greatly.
Avatar 1:40pm Julie:

kind of a late night ladies set I suppose. my wheelhouse.
Avatar 1:40pm Julie:

hi there Kevin! Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Parq:

B/t/w, Jul, I love the playlist pic. I imagine most people will see depression, and maybe that's what the artist had in mind, but in the context of your show, I prefer to see a quiet girl gathering her inner fires in preparation to rain hell down on some deserving heads.
Avatar 1:41pm Julie:

oooh fantastic interpretation, Parq!
Avatar 1:42pm Julie:

she's brewing some storm clouds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Uh Oh Parq, I better move my head somewhere else quickly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Michael 98145:

yes. great set. thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Michael 98145:

and, yes. Imogen Heap was on my daily list at one time, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Phillippe Bastille:

I like that Parq. We have 3 people outta 4 in our house with either depression or dysthymia (damn genetics), and I've seen that body language more than I like, but interpreting it differently gives me something to think about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Michael 98145:

i still do have an iPod Shuffle
Avatar 2:03pm Julie:

I don't think you can get internet on it though right? Just an ipod?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Michael 98145:

correct. it's just a player.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm listener james from westwood:

Just remembered this after how long has BR been in theaters, which shows my brain is truly rotting out:
"Sicilian Rhapsody" (by me and my pal Dave, ~1991)
Just shot two guys
Put a gun against their heads
Sollozzo and the Turk are dead
I'm in Sicily
Got a wired jaw and I married someone else
Avatar 2:11pm Julie:

why has there never been a Bahamian Rhapsody?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Parq:

I see a brown-skinned bicycling man
On the beach! On the beach!
Can he mix a fine rum drink
Avatar 2:14pm Sem:

Ha! Parq, excellent.
Avatar 2:14pm Julie:

mmmm rum drink sounds good to me
Avatar 2:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

We can crowdsource a version of that and Julie can sing it at Hoof & Mouth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Phillippe Bastille:

Bye everyone -- will be listening to the rest on the app in my gas guzzler
Avatar 2:17pm Sem:

I recommend Wray and Nephew rum, 68% ABV, 136 proof.
The bicycling man wouldn't be after that rum drink.
Avatar 2:17pm Julie:

bye Phillippe!

Kenny Everett was essential viewing for any kid in the early 80s
  2:36pm i need the toilet:

BBC1 8pm ish, if i recall correctly
  2:36pm i need the toilet:

or maybe 9 actually
Avatar 2:37pm Julie:

only on late nights here along with Benny Hill & Paul Hogan who somehow got sold into the english comedy package
  2:39pm i need the toilet:

Ha, Paul Hogan got shown here by Channel 4 (which had just begun) in about 1983. My family were all over that one.
  2:40pm i need the toilet:

imagine, we only had 4 channels until 1997
Avatar 2:40pm northguineahills:

Got here in time.....
  2:41pm i need the toilet:

altho satellite tv started in 1988, but no one had that unless u wanted to watch sport
