Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Saw a great program on local PBS about Yip Harburg - but dammit web search doesn't show it go me ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i love that wicked voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Carmichael:

Heya Bronwyn! Knockout start to the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

So Leonard Cohen ! Anais Mitchell wrote Hadestown is semi-Vermont up here..
Avatar 6:21pm dale:

i like this stuff. i vote for a permanent show of this stuff.
Avatar 6:21pm dale:

what show did richard thompson do?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm diciassette:

say!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm chris:

RT! love this track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Carmichael:

When was your birthday, Granny?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Richard Thompson - he's like - everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Carmichael:

Damn right, Rev ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Carmichael: Aug 13— i spent the day in Jerusalem with my sweetie. What a city!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

(i really couldn't find the right adjective there. I mean, what can you say about Jerusalem?!?!)
Avatar 6:23pm dale:

i wish werner herzog would do a musical. that would baffle theater goers for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Carmichael:

Her tells a great story about the band in the song, The Drones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thompson did Best Songs of Millennium. Says Playboy asked people to do it - & he did! But they really wanted just the Century ... So he put it out & toured it himself ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Carmichael:

@Granny, mine was the 12th. Spent it in Portland. Not quite Jerusalem ... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm diciassette:

I wonder of anyone's thought about musicalizing Aguirre..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Carmichael: happy solar return!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Carmichael:

Thompson said Rolling Stone asked him to do a "desert Island" disc thing, and he noticed no one else had ventured back before Chuck Berry. So he did A Thousand Years of Music, as a DVD and tour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Fine, just gonna clicky star this whole show already. Great sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yay Leos! ...used to seem they were all bullies - but now many of the most uplifting people I know.
Avatar 6:27pm NoBucks:

Wait - stuck on Werner Herzog doing a musical. Oh please.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

OK Carmichael maybe you got the story straight...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

NoBucks: what topic/subject?!?!? Yeah, let's petition for this.
Avatar 6:30pm NoBucks:

Fitzcaraldo could be a musical. A big fat crazy musical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

That soundbite of Herzog that WNYU used - talking about the birds don't sing just express pain...
Avatar 6:30pm Franco Twinkie:

Hey Granny! Chresti and I rang your doorbell a week ago today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Linda Lee:

happy belated to you also, Carmichael!
Avatar 6:30pm dale:

diciassette - woyzeck would make a hoot of a show!
Avatar 6:32pm dale:

owen wilson would make an EXCELLENT bruno s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Franco Twinkie: sorry i missed you. So you found my golden gate? (my postal address is different than my home address, but same 'hood)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Here for the show. Not sleeping in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Linda Lee:

now, is that not a glam vocal? it is!
Avatar 6:34pm dale:

bertold brecht meets peter allen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm diciassette:

I am checking out Woyzeck dvd, and customers have also bought Show Boat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Linda Lee:

brecht, or leonard cohen..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Confession: i almost didn't get my Gay Card because i failed the musicals section of the questionnaire.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Linda Lee:

but honestly, i think Fitzcarraldo would be the big, splashy, expensive musical for today's broadway!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Linda Lee:

amusing alternative: Nosferatu. when was the last Dracula story on broadway? the 70s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm melinda:

This is fun
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Oh, yeah, Fitzcarraldo RIGHT NOW. (And one could say the questionnaire was biased by being composed by a specific demographic)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm jkeigh:

Bronywn!! Welcome back, even if it's just a quick fill. Hopefully there's a spot for you in the fall lineup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Linda Lee:

this was an actual questionnaire? those make me nervous.
do i get a pass for 'raised by actual gays'?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm diciassette:

jkeigh, yes! And at a time I can wear silk pyjamas and drink Martinis
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm BronwynB:

i wonder who would be the right composer for the fitzcarraldo musical...hmmm
  6:40pm Frank Lekstutis:

Speaking of short run musicals by unlikely people. How about "the Meek Shall Inherit Nothing". From Frank Zappa's Thing-Fish. https://youtu.be/mn0E4qTd0rA
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Don't know this artist but she could only be named Judy Blazer..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm tw2sheds:

Waiting for Oedipus Rex, the musical
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

.. Theater may not be my thing - but good gawd the commitment...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm tw2sheds:

Actually with the Greek chorus and everything E R was a musical i guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Linda Lee: yes, there was a Gay Card station at Burning Man. Honey, YOU don't need no stinking badge!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Linda Lee:

that's just why i'd love having one. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Linda Lee:

thank you love. :-)
i'm actually an Honorary Gay Man of 2 decades' standing. don't i need a renewal?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

LL: hmmm, birthday present idea. Or would you prefer a stocking suffer? (These saucy tunes are provoking me!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Linda Lee:

how sweet of you! we're just a month past my birthday, so maybe it'll stuff my stocking ..?
Avatar 6:47pm northguineahills:

Feliz cumpleanos tardios GST y Carmichael!
Avatar 6:47pm dale:

i hate the operatic falsettos and warbling a la ethel merman. but these folks go all out in their self indulgence so it fits the station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

northguineahills: gracias
dale: if you're going to go for it, might as well go overboard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Linda Lee:

one must *project*, dale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Linda Lee:

i find show tunes on fmu darn refreshing!
Avatar 6:49pm dale:

it's the bob kelly makeup - it's hallucinagenic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

LL: see? i even blasphemed "show tunes" by calling it "musicals." Oy, now the Gay Police are going to arrest me. Hope they have furry handcuffs in hot pink tiger stripes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm tw2sheds:

Speaking of ancient Greeks...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Linda Lee:

darling, i assure you wfmu does not employ Gay Police for the comments board. consider yourself reprieved by me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Linda Lee:

'i happen to be a god!' is that Nathan Lane?
Avatar 6:53pm dale:

sondheim watched beneath the planet of the apes before he wrote this. it's the deformed bald people singing to the a bomb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

LL: thank you! Can i also have a hall pass so i can rip it up? :) xoxox
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Theater & Pop in a sense diverged @ the Electric Microphone ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Linda Lee:

of course my dear! here is 1 (one) virtual hall pass written in liquid eyeliner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm BronwynB:

@linda lee: yep, that's nathan lane all right! and brian stokes mitchell as his sidekick
Avatar 6:54pm dale:

now, THIS is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm BronwynB:

@granny: with the line "if you're going to go for it, might as well go overboard," i think you have come up with a perfect tagline for the entire genre of musical theatre
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

BronwynB: thank you! I don't want this hour to end! This will be my checklist of musicals to investigate more deeply.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& then The Who invaded Opera Halls... but I digress... kind of ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Bronwyn. Have a good rest-of-summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Linda Lee:

thanks for a lovely show, Bronwyn! fabulous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm BronwynB:

goodbye friends <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

funny thing is, i was in a lot of "original casts"… but local, SF weirdo underground musical theatre that hasn't become mainstream YET
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm jkeigh:

Bye Bronwyn
Avatar 6:59pm dale:

is this kristin chenowith? cuz i hate her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Linda Lee:

*there's* a story i'd like hearing!
Avatar 6:59pm dale:

good show. this station needs more of this wacky variety.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

That's righteous Granny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm diciassette:

thanks Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

if John Waters can go Broadway, then what can't?
  7:00pm ignatatus666:

I thought the only rule on FMU is
No show tunes
I was really enjoying that last one that cut off though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm chris:

thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Linda Lee:

don't tell Ken i said so, but wfmu is very straight. we need more curls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

WORD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hate her too. Would like the privilege of kicking her out of bed to prove it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm KidProJoe:

I don't know what this is but I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Linda Lee:

thank you. & yes, i agree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Linda Lee:

let's clicky star like mad!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Scraps:

AAAAARRRGGGHHHH I slept through it!!! Knowing and anticipating for several days! I’m so mad at myself, and frustrated, and sad.

Hope you fill in another spell, BronwynB. I miss you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm BronwynB:

aww no worries scraps!!! <3

That’s what the archive is for!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Scraps:
