Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Mick:

Thanks for this - knew we'd be remembering Anna Karina with you today...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm coco:

so great to hear this...
  3:17pm Brendan:

Sounds angry. Is she saying get off my lawn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm The Oscar:

Between Anna, Agnes Varda, and Michel Legrand, it's been a rough year for the nouvelle vague.
  3:41pm bill:

not teaching today so I get to fail live! (usually have to fail in archive)
  3:44pm nic:

always loved Anna Karina !!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm mariano:

Anna Karina was a goddess. That dance scene in "Band of Outsiders" is cinematic gold.
Avatar 3:45pm geezerette:

What mariano said.
Avatar 3:53pm Chris from DC:

Liking this Bitter Lake a lot. Also, hello.
  3:54pm Chud:

This is an amazing soundtrack to this sunset
Avatar 3:55pm Chris from DC:

Or was that Eric Arn? Nice, anyway.
Avatar 3:58pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

This here can go all bloody day.

I have spoken.
Avatar 3:58pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

also, hello v2.0
Avatar 4:00pm coelacanth∅))):

Thanks you Fabio! i successfully repelled the "cleaning" lady from the kitchen by turning this up loud!
Avatar 4:01pm dale:

this sounds like someone left a box fan on the floor at the bagpipe store.
  4:03pm nic:

Matt Barbier_great love it !!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm stefica:

This Stars of the Lid is fantastic!
  4:15pm William Main:

If you liked Anna Karina dance in Band of Outsiders, check out her dance from Ce soir ou jamais (Tonight or Never) directed by Michel Deville in 1961 (before BOA). It's on Youtube.
Avatar 4:16pm geezerette:

loving "Rain Dance". Derek Bailey new to me. thought is was a John Cage piece I hadn't heard before, some kind of collaboration.
Avatar 4:17pm βrian:

I thought I heard our local steam horn, but no. It was the lead-in to Fabio's talk-over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm mariano:

Hey, what's that Sabbath-y background music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Devin B.:

Mars Bar was the real deal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Barney Grubbs:

I only went to the Mars Bar once, but I at least got to buy my 18-year old sister a beer and play earth crisis on the jukebox
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm mariano:

Oooh yeah, Mars Bar - they don't make 'em like that anymore.
  4:27pm Listener Phillip In The Bronx:

sure i remember lee remick in the omen
  4:28pm Listener Phillip In The Bronx:

i did spend a good part of my life watching old movies on local tv WOR-9 WPIX-11
Avatar 4:28pm dale:

c'mon fabio - lay the glenn yarbrough song 'baby the rain must fall' on us.
Avatar 4:31pm thormagma:

@mariano: a track from the album "distortions" by blue phantom. i coincidentally looked it up about 10 minutes ago
  4:39pm nic:

love this!!!
Avatar 4:44pm Chris from DC:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm mariano:

@thormagma: Thanks - I looked it up too, and found Blue Phantom, but couldn't seem to find the exact track. Sounds like I just need to give it a closer listen.
  4:46pm tomo blazek:

fantastic music - electronic, psychedelic, garage.... thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm coco:

I am really liking this Bitter Lake stuff
Avatar 4:51pm thormagma:

...like to keep the Xmas thing down so low I can't see it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Bas NL:

Hi Fabio! Hi folks!
Avatar 5:09pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm common:

Fabio, all. Beeersies and Thursday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Bas NL:

Reading back a bit.. I once saw Stars of the Lid in a nice little basement festival themed 'quiet'. SodL did an amazing hushed performance to a mesmerized public.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Moments to treasure Bas.
  5:28pm nic:

love love!!!
Avatar 5:29pm dale:

my wife is catholic so i put up a tree for her. otherwise i'd just worship the solstice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Bas NL:

@dale Wasn't putting up a tree an old Germanic winter solstice practice adopted by Catholics?
  5:35pm 1221:

The tree IS for the solstice! No connection to Krissmus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

One could reasonably debate the Pros & Cons of Xmas for Humanity
...in the end I just resent the obligatory pressure of it all.
  5:37pm 1221:

What a fine program. Got me through a long drive going N on the Taconic. Thanks.
  5:38pm 1221:

That said, Christ has no connection to SwissMiss either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Bas NL:

Avatar 5:40pm northguineahills:

most northern European pre-Christian cultures, from the British Isles to the Baltics used worship in sacred groves. The xmas tree is just an extension of that practice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm chresti:

I'm more of a solstice and tree worshipper
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm chresti:

Also, we worship tamales
Avatar 5:43pm coelacanth∅))):

Jesus was known to relish a good cup of hot chocolate on a cold solstice evening though... and a big proponent of Swiss Kriss.
-he hated getting constipated more than just about anything.
Avatar 5:44pm coelacanth∅))):

(although that whole crucifixion thing he didn't love either)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Bas NL:

Shout out to Helen Scarsedale.. i've ordered anything he (Jim Haynes) releases.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Megaroni:

Far out Fab
  5:45pm 1221:

By crucifixion you mean large-scale sundial ritual right?
Avatar 5:47pm northguineahills:

Thanks, Fabio!
  5:48pm William Main:

Christmas is at least partly based on the Roman holiday Saturnalia. This is a well established historical fact acknowledged even by the Vatican. (My source is the book Origins of Christmas by Joseph Kelly.) 
Avatar 5:48pm coelacanth∅))):

by sundial you mean discarded tire playgounds right?
Avatar 5:48pm βrian:

Aye to this.
Avatar 5:48pm Megadano:

this was a tremendous show Fab. Helped me make my deadlines. Thanx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm mrdonutsu:

Now this is a proper violin tone.
Avatar 5:49pm geezerette:

Thanks, Fabio!
  5:49pm Listener Phillip In The Bronx:

going to miss you next week @Fabio:(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm chresti:

Thanks Fabio!
Haha coel
Avatar 5:52pm geezerette:

Have a Happy Anything, Fabio and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Xmas as we know it derives as much from Coke campaigns as anything... But whatever gets one thru the least sunlight &tc. &tc.
Piece really makes me wonder about relation of African derived Blues to Indian traditional musics...structurally, culturally, metaphysically...
Avatar 5:53pm βrian:

Speaking of Saturnalia, Adriene will be taking us to the rings of Saturn:

Avatar 5:54pm dale:

bas - probably.
Avatar 5:54pm coelacanth∅))):

i'll go but it ain't my first time.
Sun Ra brought me there several times.
Avatar 5:54pm dale:

all i know is that we really do need a reason to party on these longest nights of the year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Bas NL:

Thanks Fabio!
Avatar 5:55pm dale:

YESH! tyrone shoelaces.....george harrison, carole king....a whole host of stars.

@coel: Your parens are unmatched.

Take that as you will.
Avatar 5:56pm Fredericks:

Merry Chrisolstice, Failures
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm ultradamno:

Glancing over the talkback, is it being suggested the holiday with all the elves might have some pagan connections?

Hi everybody!
  5:56pm Eric from Lake Hiawatha:

Awesome not jonesing now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm mariano:

Oh man, Basketball Jones! Thanks Fabio, happy Holidays! @dale Ronnie Spector too, no? God, imagine if that cartoon came out today...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm ultradamno:

Hot chocolate and punk rock do go together twitter.com...
Avatar 5:57pm Dr. Goot:

ha ha, great show, excellent CnC bit!
Avatar 5:57pm geezerette:

Ultra, you mean elves aren't real?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm tim from champaign (now washington):

Just joining in. Forget the rest of the show, Basketball Jones is all I needed. Hope Santa Claus and his old lady treats everyone well next week!

Heaven...errr, Valhalla forbid.
Avatar 5:58pm dale:

Avatar 5:58pm Fredericks:

Is Basset Ball Jones a Fabio Christmas song?
Avatar 5:58pm dale:

Avatar 5:59pm βrian:

Where can I buy some Valhalla extract. As a gift, mean?
