Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25am Darren:

TEES IT UP JUST TO MURDER IT
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am fred:

When I was in college, I had my mother knit a sweatshirt with a YMO logo in front and the band members' names in the back (in kanji)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29am Darren:

hell yeah I support making Moms sew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30am Darren:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31am Darren:

Avatar 4:33am northguineahills:

awesome fred!

Thanks for the last 20 odd minutes (been here since Dave)
  4:33am VincentNifigance:

@Fred do you still have that?
  4:34am VincentNifigance:

@Fred ...or at least a picture?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35am fred:

@VincenNifigance: Yeah, though I haven't worn it in decades
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36am fred:

This Papaya Paranoia track is great!
  4:36am VincentNifigance:

@Fred Sui generis.
Avatar 4:37am Antonia:

im so happy to have tuned in!
  4:40am VincentNifigance:

@Antonia This show is always so great.
Avatar 4:41am Antonia:

yeah i had no idea until now, i love this track playing rn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Darren:

Thanks Fred! Papaya Paranoia is pretty new to me - that record is all over the place in a great way

Hey Antonia thanks for hanging out!
  4:43am Fashion Tashjian:

Good afternoon Darren and weirdos. Today is Vardavar in Armenia. Just Wikipedia it because I'm a or lazy to type it on an iPad. GET WET!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am VincentNifigance:

“Vardavar is celebrated 98 days (14 weeks) after Easter. During the day of Vardavar, people from a wide array of ages are allowed to douse strangers with water. It is common to see people pouring buckets of water from balconies on unsuspecting people walking below them. The festival is very popular among children as it is one day where they can get away with pulling pranks. It is also a means of refreshment on the usually hot and dry summer days of July or late June.”
Avatar 4:48am Antonia:

It is so hot here, that I would not mind being doused with water.
  4:48am Fashion Tashjian:

Big ups to Vinnie Niffs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51am VincentNifigance:

@Fashion Tashjian: Has Armenia been hotter than usual this summer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54am VincentNifigance:

@Darren There are no clicky stars on the Exes or Papaya Paranoia tracks, any way of fixing that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58am fred:

@VincentNifigance: that's because there is no latin letter in the track name. Adding a translation would work, or maybe just the track number, like maybe (track 4)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59am Darren:

RE: clicky stars I'm not sure! I'm gonna try to research it but thats weird!
  5:03am tinkle bear:

*likes DJ Darren's style*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03am VincentNifigance:

@Darren What @Fred says makes sense, I suppose it wants recognisable words.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09am VincentNifigance:

@tinkle bear: Remember to come back and support this show, it's always amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12am fred:

It's probably either a leftover misguided check that Kenzo could fix easily, or something trickier about how favorites are stored. (I mean, the track name does show up, so the playlist is already UTF-8). Maybe the latter, otherwise chances are Kenzo would have fixed it already
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14am Darren:

ahh trying that now! Thanks Fred!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15am fred:

Here's the clicky-star!
Avatar 5:16am Antonia:

works now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23am Pablexa™:

Morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27am Darren:

Morning!
Avatar 5:43am northguineahills:

@fred: Kenzo already confirmed your theory. He's going to work on it when he has free time.
Avatar 5:44am northguineahills:

Always dig Mike Cooper....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46am fred:

@ngh: cool! I was about to ask him about it, you saved me from annoying him about something he already plans to do
Avatar 5:47am northguineahills:

...and I heart anything by Yoko!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50am VincentNifigance:

10 minutes left? I don't want to achieve actual Sunday just the beginning of it. Almost time for the Darren-hangover.
Avatar 5:54am northguineahills:

Thanks Darren, enjoy your Sunday, everyones, another day packing/moving/cleaning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55am fred:

Thanks Darren
@ngh: best of luck with the job search
Avatar 5:55am northguineahills:

arigato, fred!
Avatar 5:56am northguineahills:

Sounded (bruce) haackish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am Darren:

Thanks y'all I'll see you next week NOTHING CAN STOP ME
