I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

I was thinking about all this plastic when I was drinking out of a plastic water bottle this week lol
Avatar 12:12pm Mayuko:

Hello james, Dave in Vermont! Welcome, my radio family Sem!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm fred:

@rbrt: Now that I have the water bottle designed by Mayuko, I no longer have that problem
Avatar 12:13pm Mayuko:

Greetings, Dropof, Joe B & coelacanth∅! Glad to have you all here with in me in my landfill.
Avatar 12:13pm JosephB:

I've always wanted to visit a recycling facility like this and see all the plastic in person.
  12:13pm rbrt:

@fred where did u get that!

Mayuko's landfill lol

MMM! Radio you can smell today!

@rbrt: From the prize warehouse of WFMU's marathon. It's also available from the station's store: wfmu.store...

@rbrt I make and bring my coffee everyday for a personal financial reason, so most of the time I'm good. Being poor helps the world!!!!!!!

@fred oh you can actually buy it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm chresti:

Morning JoesephB!
Avatar 12:18pm Mayuko:

@Henry Haha! The recycling facility I just visited was actually not too bad in terms of smell probably because it's mostly plastic/metal and trash don't go there.
Avatar 12:19pm Mayuko:

@fred Maybe I should design a Coffee mug next!
  12:19pm rbrt:

poor people are prob better for the environment
Avatar 12:20pm Mayuko:

@Joe B I seem to remember someone told me there's an art residency in a landfill somewhere in California? Do you know? Sounds super cool.
  12:20pm rbrt:

@Mayuko you should make one from recycled garbage
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm chresti:

Are we going on a field trip to the recycling facility?
Avatar 12:21pm Mayuko:

Good morning Chresti! And welcome, Granny Spicy Tuna!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm coelacanth∅:

i used 2 metal water bottles daily. my other one (which i painted) was in my backpack when it was stolen - fortunately...leaving me the collector's item that is designed by Mayuko.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm fred:

This has been a great start to the show, and this Stuart Chalmers / Sindre Bjerga track was especially great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Think big, Mayuko. You can be the next Antonio Gaudi and design a Park Güell for listenerds to live in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm fred:

@Ken: not sure that would work as a premium though, the shipping costs for parks are bound to be high
Avatar 12:26pm Mayuko:

@Ken Very good point! The only question is if the station would fund me to do big.
Avatar 12:26pm JosephB:

@Mayuko yes, up in San Francisco. I know someone who did and it it was a great experience for her. But I don't think they provide housing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm coelacanth∅:

set the location now and i'll start walking. maybe it'll be done by the time i get there.
Avatar 12:27pm Mayuko:

@coelacanth∅ oh I love the idea of painting a water bottle! What paint did you use?
Avatar 12:28pm Mayuko:

@fred Yes! I love that Stuart Chalmers / Sindre Bjerga new release too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm fred:

I really like this Tamayugé track. I think Dave in Vermont had the right insight
Avatar 12:31pm Mayuko:

@coelacanth∅ OK!!! I'll wait for you there and hand you a kite made of a deli plastic bag when you arrive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm coelacanth∅:

it was a kleen kanteen got left in my car, ugly orange so i painted it with leftover spray paint -flat "olive" and shiny "basil" -so on a 3-toned base i used enamels,mostly 1-shot sign paint that i bought for my car a few years earlier.
i wish i had pictures.
Avatar 12:34pm Mayuko:

@Joe B oh boo! I would want to LIVE in the landfill.
Avatar 12:34pm Mayuko:

I mean not for good, but for like a week or however long the residency is.
  12:35pm rbrt:

they should let you fly kites in the landfill, a kite park
  12:35pm rbrt:

like they can drop you off in the landfill and you can build shelter with stuff in the landfill
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm coelacanth∅:

haha Mayuko remember -i've never flown a kite so you've got an aerodynamics student you never wanted!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Dave in Vermont:

I lost my Mayuko water bottle....
Avatar 12:38pm Mayuko:

@rbrt Freshkills park in Staten Island, the former landfill, does let you fly a kite, though not like in the middle of the piles of trash.
  12:39pm rbrt:

is this water bottle bad luck??! the "Psychic" part is suspect...
  12:39pm rbrt:

@Mayuko oh freshkills! that's right, totally forgot about that
Avatar 12:39pm Mayuko:

@coelacanth∅ I see, spray paints and enamel paint for car must work really well. I wanna give it a try too sometime!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm coelacanth∅:

i thought i lost my Mayuko water bottle in a drunken state once then a week later it was presented to me by my friend (the bartender) who gave me a ride home that night. (it fell out of my backpack into her car)
-i was very sad for a week though! (honestly)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Dave in Vermont:

  12:43pm rbrt:

matmos are the kings of plastic junk music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm coelacanth∅:

Mayuko, my experience with the car showed me that the hotter it is when i did the painting the better it will hold up; though it dried so fast there was little forgiveness.
...but i don't imagine you'd be painting a water bottle in 105ºf tuscan heat anyway
Avatar 12:46pm Mayuko:

Yeah why does my water bottle keep disappearing???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm coelacanth:

maybe the space creature you endowed them with resembles entities amongst us that we don't see, who therefore feel entitled to take them
Avatar 12:50pm JosephB:

Speaking of swag, did everyone already else get their premiums for 2019? I'm a little worried because I never got it and packages typically get stolen from my place. Who should I contact to see if it went out? Joe McG I presume?
Avatar 12:51pm Mayuko:

@rbrt ... and possibly the only resident of the whole kingdom. haha! actually I'm sure there have been many people who made music from plastic materials. maybe just not to that level of consistency of Matmos...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm coelacanth∅:

Joseph i doubt anyone's gotten swag yet.
last year mine came around july
  12:53pm rbrt:

yeah I bet they figured out how to get the exact tones they want out of plastic at this point
  12:54pm rbrt:

I'm interested in this Om Kult label lol
Avatar 12:54pm Jeff Moore:

Hello, Mayuko!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm coelacanth∅:

...and i asked Joe to change my shipping address from my billing address, to someone else's house; for i'm in a similar situation in regard to theft.
  12:55pm rbrt:

500k tons! omg
Avatar 12:57pm JosephB:

@coel good info, thanks!
  1:05pm JakeGould:

Hey Mayuko! Funny you mentioned the coffee you bring to work and being poor. Growing up poor taught me the value of not being wasteful. I also (as a kid) went through the building’s garbage with other poor kids to find toys.

And as an adult, the two metal refillable water bottles I own were rescued from the trash. Ditto with a very nice reusable metal coffee mug.
  1:06pm rbrt:

do not recycle dirty tissues...check
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm fred:

Didn't you use a pic of a Tokyo landfill in one of your earlier shows?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Dave in Vermont:

Is Matt Warwick aware that this broadcast happening?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Thank you for filling my ears with glorious garbage, Mayuko!
  1:08pm JakeGould:

Pro tip for metal bottles and mugs with chopped paint: Just boil them in a mixture of vinegar and salt for a little while. Then use steel wool to basically rub the paint off. One of the bottles I found was a beat up Swell bottle with an ugly, gummy paint finish. After some work it’s now nice and shiny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm chresti:

There's a good selection of water bottles and drink mugs on top of the fridge at work, that tennis players left behind
  1:10pm rw:

Good morning! Trash talk...

Great tracks! I just can't get on here to chat because I'm so damn busy today!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm chresti:

...if no one comes to claim them after a year, I'll adopt one if I need another fancy metal bottle
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm chresti:

My boyfriend, Franco, was in love with garbage trucks when he was little
Avatar 1:17pm Mayuko:

Hi Jeff! Thank you for listening!!!!!
  1:18pm rw:

My son's always bringing fancy metal bottles home from school that other kids have lost. He in turn forgets them at school and other kids claim them. It's a sort of circular recycling program.
Avatar 1:19pm Mayuko:

@Jake Yeah, not having something sometimes just lead to creativity and the ability to figure things out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm fred:

That's a nice cover
Avatar 1:20pm Mayuko:

@fred How come you have such a great memory? It was probably like my 6th fill in show or something?!
  1:21pm rw:

And my buddy just showed up. Gotta go see if we can make it around the bike trail. Thanks Mayuko! Happy Saturday everyone!

@Dave in Vermont Actually, I was thinking of playing music he recorded! But I just couldn't find it - probably got lost when my harddrive crashed!!!

Marvin Gaye's I Heard It Through the Grapevine was the first 45 I ever owned!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Doug Schulkind:

My favorite toy as a young tot was a garbage truck. It had movable parts that allowed the opening and filling of the backloading crusher space. So cool. I wanted to be a garbage man as the result up until the age 7 or so.

This is a great TH song. I'm very partial to the earlier stuff but this is cool. I think that might be Johnny Marr on Geetar!

Thank you Mayuko and take care everyone

I think of this song as the flip flop of Life During War Time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Webhamster Henry:

we're big fans of To-Go-ware. They make steel tiffins that we keep in the car, and if we go out and want to bring food back home, it goes in the tiffins instead of the gross plastic or cardboard shells.

What happens to all the non-recylable foil packaging? like chip bags, cookie bags, and thickest of all - coffee bags. Is it plastic masquerading as metal?

  1:46pm JakeGould:

FWIW, I know there are a few “99¢ Dreams” stores around, but I am pretty sure there was (is?) a “99¢ Dreams” shop on Newark Avenue near Grove Street in Jersey City near the radio station.
Avatar 1:47pm Mayuko:

Have a nice weekend, coelacanth∅!!
Hallos, Rickwaukee and spodiodi!!!!!!
Avatar 1:50pm Mayuko:

@Rickwaukee In the chart I saw those were still in the trash category. Those are I believe called "soft plastic films" or something and NYC doesn't take em as recyclable. Hope I remember these things correctly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Dropof Goldensun:

listenerjames, I wasn't 100% sure but knew he was on that album. It sounded like him so I figured it was probably him.
  1:50pm JakeGould:

Also, slight tangent but there used to be a hole-in-the-wall shop on 14th Street near 6th Avenue called “Funny Cry Happy Gift” which I think is one of the best shop names ever. www.flickr.com...
