Daniel what’s happening is it supposed to sound like this?? The dog is becoming upset!

I also thank you for that choice SJ song.

Hi everyone. Saddened by David Berman's passing and seem to always tune in after the tributes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Daniel Blumin:

r_r, hola! GM, thanks fer the info - not aware of anything like that happening this weekend around these parts...
  9:49pm P-90:

Nice pinkish noise. Very musical.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Daniel Blumin:

Hi, melinda. Welcome! Glad you're enjoying, p-90!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm coelacanth∅:

i haven't heard any David Berman tributes longer than 1 song.
i don't know silver jews well, but i'm saddened by his passing.

...saddened even more that he didn't take his father with him.
but i can't blame him if he didn't want to, just in case there's an "afterlife" that means they'd have to be together.

say what?

Hello, inaudible is in the name, with leftover letters.
Avatar 9:57pm JakeGould:

@P-90: David Berman’s dad is Richard Berman, a lawyer and lobbyist fir some really crappy ideals. Read his Wiki there: en.wikipedia.org...
  9:58pm P-90:

I don’t need to read his wiki, thanks though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm ultradamno:

It's hard to pick which of Mr. Berman's organizations has the most dystopian, deceitfully misleading name
Avatar 9:59pm JakeGould:

Well this piece from the Guardian in 2009 spells it out bluntly: “Frontman David Berman explains that he is breaking up his band so that he can undo the wrongs wrought by his father – a rightwing spin doctor dubbed 'Dr Evil' by the US media” www.theguardian.com...

Avatar 10:18pm Hubig Pie:

discombobulate is a recognized word, but combobulate is not ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Daniel Blumin:

Hubig, I have often been upset by this myself! There is no hope - no way to combobulate!
Avatar 10:24pm TDK60:

somehow, those bells are helping...

..surf bands in 1962, Daniel, solved this dilemma and simply formed combos.

Howdy, Daneil and Bluminimrods. When something really great happens, a person should feel gusted, if I understand English correctly.
  10:47pm P-90:

Did someone say: “Frith tickets”?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Daniel Blumin:

Hiya, Ken! p-90, yes! I'm going to do the unthinkable and try my first email ticket giveaway in a few!
  10:55pm GM:

Hearing something like this and seeing it was released in 1981...makes you re-think any historical timelines whatsoever. This is fucking radical...

I was just thinking the same thing, GM.

My neighbor's cat finally came home for dinner. I was late getting over to his house for feeding and went into panic mode when I couldn't find him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm Daniel Blumin:

Might the fact that you are playing this music at top volume throughout the house have anything to do with it, melinda???
