Luckily for drivers here in Portland there are no cops so you can literally drive people over. Walkers/Bikers beware

Blorvak is my old roommate u can all quiz him for dirt on me Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Linda Lee:

far as i know, MB, if you're deciding between being & non-being, you're not a buddhist that day. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Blorvak - Martinibomb's excellent DJing leads us all to believe that he is in fact over eight feet tall. Is this true?

@L I'm glad u get my sense of humor heh heh
  4:08pm Blorvak:

Yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Everey time I've seen the name Jim Noir, I think it says Jim Moir, and so I thought you were going to play Vic Reeves ;-)

@GG I am loving the Jim Noir righ tnow.. super up my alley
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - he's very VERY good!

I think that was Jim Thompson's actual name, but he dropped it for redundancy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Have you played this before or is this in a movie? It's really familiar and I don't know why ...
Avatar 4:13pm Martinibomb:

Everything I'm playing today is new and I've not played it before
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Linda Lee:

Ooo! Ooo! I have a request! :-)

I also abstained. I was really tired and my Coco and I just binged Carnivale until we were falling asleep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Sean Lennon and Matthieu Chedid doing "L'Eclipse" - which is the French version of "Parachute" and lovely and electronic and modern :-)

WOAH! This Blank Tapes track is AMAZING!
Avatar 4:30pm Martinibomb:

Check out the Blank Tapes all of their stuff seemed very cool to me.. probably play more

This song is one of my fave garage staples. This is a nice version, as well!

I'll confess that I'm drifting from the mothership lately, but i still tune in for MI.

Hail Satin babe! xx
Avatar 5:02pm Martinibomb:

MI is a great show! It's funny to me that Devon and I are connected but it's a small world. Hope to meet him some day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Linda Lee:

oh! you haven't met! you should definitely meet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Martinibomb: well connected, indeed! i can't believe how many folx we know in common.
Avatar 5:03pm Martinibomb:

@granny I know it's insane! yup Devon grew up with another good friend of mine in Vegas they were in bands etc..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Linda Lee:

I guess Devon E Levins is his given name then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

May your 2020 be filled with Lesspeyuns! ;-)

ii'm with you, MB! we can't do it all alone..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Linda Lee:

it helps if everyone eliminates money together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

LL: wishing you all the best with that.

meanwhile, i am happily setting up my 2020 office supplies—new journal, organizer, tarot binder, changing the year date on my rubber stamp. fun!

I'm Mr Oatsmeal in the MartiniBowl of Music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Linda Lee:

thank you love. i just look, so it should be easy. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Linda Lee:

i love that you love your office supplies. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

looking is lovely :) my queerheart is a KJ and has a special gig that's an all-gender, all-levels pop-up queer strip club (inspired by Portland stripper-oke, as i recall). lots to look at! and since it's just our queer family present, it's all fun and friendly times. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Linda Lee:

wow. that sounds lovely. i should come out for a sample! :-)
Avatar 5:19pm Martinibomb:

Oh Striperaoke yup! A PDX export hahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Linda Lee:

now tell me what stripperoke is. get up & strip instead of sing? been in the woods for *so* long :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

yeah, a friend of mine brought it to SF Bay Area and calls it Drrrty Queer.
Avatar 5:21pm Martinibomb:

@linda strippers strip while you sing.. I believe Otis just did it recently Hahah but invented in Portland, Oregon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

SF also imported PDX's Drag Races, which i do believe led to a direct connection with Ru's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Linda Lee:

i have actually been in the woods for almost 20 years straight.

i mean, continually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Linda Lee:

I know nothing! :-D
Avatar 5:23pm Martinibomb:

@Gran sol said you prefer an older term for They/them but I'm forgetting what it was exactly can you refresh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Drrrty Queeraoke With Dana has so many strippers who also sing that they sometimes end up singing right after a dance or vice versa, and sometimes the queues coincide!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Linda Lee:

whoa!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

oh, my actual pronouns are e/em/eir/emself (Spivac) however i do support the rising popularity of they/them as a respectful default.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm ParUbi:

Beautiful moon up there tonight
Avatar 5:25pm Martinibomb:

That's it Em or Eir ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm ParUbi:

(that's also what they'd say if I went to stripayoke)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

"Ask em what e wants in eir tea."
Avatar 5:26pm Martinibomb:

Em or Eir are much older terms than they/them right? and sound better to my ear
Avatar 5:26pm Martinibomb:

Ah! Yeah I like that alot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Linda Lee:

I don't think they'd let me on stage either way. last time I stripped was 1981! nuff said
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

they/them as a singular pronoun goes back hundreds of years, as far as i know, e/em has only been around a few decades?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm ParUbi:

Didn't know about the Spivak system. This will be relevant in my Love/Sex class, thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Linda Lee:

they/them is definitely much older.
honestly, can we please just dispense with the damn binary?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Linda Lee: whaaat? No nuf sed! OK, OK… however they would let you strip, and we'd all love it. My queerheart just celebrated her 61st bday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Linda Lee:

sweet! :-)
yes, I stripped in San Francisco!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Linda Lee:

north beach
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

ParUbi: cool! Spivak developed the pronouns to improve neutral language in academic papers, but the pronouns also developed simultaneously in other places, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

LL: North Beach! Classic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

Yes, we have a monthly 'Strip Karaoke' night here in Montreal at Café Cléopatra (cabaret joint). Good times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

It's been going on for years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Lotis Odder from the year 2020: i've never been to the original. Would love to!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Linda Lee:

yes! totally trad.
i was reprimanded for lap dancing. i hear it's allowed now.
Avatar 5:33pm Martinibomb:

@otis whadya think about this stuff I pulled today? I have heard none of it.. all new to my ears. Trying to cover the contemprary end of the spectrum for Sheena during 2020
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

LL: ha! yeah, at the end of the first Drrrty Queeraoke, ALL the dancers gave my queerheart a flash mob lap dance. It was SPECTACULAR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Linda Lee:

fantastic!!! haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

I'm not sure when or where it originates, but when I was in Paris in 2004 I went to a very early morning (or late night) audience participation strip kareoke event. I recall San Fran on Broadway and side clubs in the late 80s as well with a bit of the wild/risque action lip-syncing to songs. Ol' drag scenes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

She's 6'2 and zaftig, so there's plenty of "lap!" ha ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

MB - Having only listened since Fleur, I like it. All new to my ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Linda Lee:

she sounds delightful. I like a tall person too, myself.
Avatar 5:36pm Martinibomb:

@otis have you heard Jim Noir?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

Nope, so much new music, I try to keep up as well via Bandcamp and sites like bleep.com. Electronci Sound mag that you are also a fan of, keeps me in tune a bit (I do the subscription).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

digging this set aplenty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Linda Lee:

agree.delicious set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

A new magazine I LOVE is, Maggot Brain... published by Third Man Records. First issue just came out last month and it's a quarterly drop. Some new stuff, but mostly old stuff. Reminds me of Wax Poetics a bit.
Avatar 5:40pm Martinibomb:

There's so much music and I feel like sheena hasn't been covering newer stuff.. we mostly look backward.. so my 2020 is to look forward with music on my show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

yes! i love that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Linda Lee:

i'm appreciating the new sounds very much, MB. especially since there is *so much* to plow through..
Avatar 5:41pm Martinibomb:

It's a Djs job to listen to it ALL and pull the gems for you folks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Linda Lee:

and i'm lazy.
Avatar 5:42pm Martinibomb:

@Linda if you were lazy you wouldn't be listening to wfmu that's more than most people can muster hah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

I love it all. Last Sunday played some new Fenella (Jane Weaver) and Barrence Whitfield doing Sun Ra. Need to play the last Ladytron album, maybe in full, that's been on rotation heavy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Linda Lee:

this is really stellar stuff. so was the acid rooster.
Avatar 5:47pm Martinibomb:

Yep it's my super power haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

Here too. Sorting, organizing, taking notes... and sifting out favs to play. I should have bought stock in sticky notes... for physical they are all over covers in crates of songs to play and for digital folders of tracks I like. Fun stuff to pass the time. I love to file.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Linda Lee:

ahah! you're both absolutely phenomenal. now I know the secret.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

loving to file is an essential skill for that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Linda Lee:

that kutiman track was very zegzy.
Avatar 5:50pm Martinibomb:

Otis is the opposite from me organizational wise.. I am completely not organized my records are a jumble .. cd.. all of it Hah! I kinda like the chaos

I'm making stuffed bell peppers as I'm listening to this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

I do leave the house I do and I have friends... when I say that I am... filing my record collection by year. I created DIY white plastic separators for 1950-2019. Talk about a pastime/obsession. FA - Filers Anonymous (see you all at the next meeting)!
Avatar 5:51pm Martinibomb:

Otis is more ocd about it and I'm really a spazz about my collection
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Linda Lee:

Otis, are you prepared to hand your will & your stickies over to a Higher Power?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

I love it, organize the collection like I do for work/files on the computer.
Avatar 5:53pm Martinibomb:

Most of the other Djs here are way more organized than me but I feel like the chaos is part of my sound if that makes sense? I'm sometimes just as surprised as the listeners haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

I am prepared for my killer friends to come over and take everything I have when I am gone. Distribute and enjoy. In the meantime, more listening and cataloging... which helps me to purge... a lot. I get rid of as much as I bring in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

It's what works for each of us. Our systems. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Linda Lee:

as long as it works! why worry?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Linda Lee:

I think I was more like MB when I made my mix tapes for the world.

my pOv is the natural state is chaos so why bother organizing...my collection is just a reflection of the universe Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Linda Lee:

synchronicity carrels us chaos lovers thru :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Rich in Washington:

If my record collection were animals, I'd be turned in by the authorities. Not because I have so many (I don't), but rather how I sort/stack/leave them out etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Linda Lee:

I fondly remember stepping on stacks of vinyl to get out of the room when mixing. not good. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

At least I am not filing my records by color... again. Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Linda Lee:

piles, rather. not stacks.

I have never organized my record collection. Not once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

I started organizing in 1987 by BPM, really helped playing out from 87-92 heavy. After the mid-90s it was just always A-Z and only did that after I had a couple of thousand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

Gotta go help my neighbor move furniture and drop some old stuff on the street, back before the show shuts down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Lotis Odder from the year 2020: oh no! yeah, the color method wasn't successful for me, either! Nor the chronological…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

While I find some pants, nice to hear Jacco!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Linda Lee:

BPM?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i once organized by which friend or family member the record reminded me of (way back when i had less than 200 records)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Linda Lee:

wow! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

and none of this means that my records are actually in order! i just like filing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Linda Lee:

I have about 400 now .. my 4th or 5th collection. it's loosely grouped by genre. very loosely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

still can't find a ding-dang thing when i'm looking for something specific. Chaos and Synchronicity win again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Lotis Odder from the year 2020:

GST - I 'love' filing too. Most of my filing these days is with files on the drives, from client folders to project folders. A good filing system and file-naming conventions can do wonders for productivity. Gotta run, time to move some bookcases...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

15 years with my partner, most of them cohabitating, and we still haven't dared try to mingle our collections. so we have TWO disorderly systems going on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Linda Lee:

ha! that's amazing. still no mixing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

no. mixing. and then there are our abundant zines and comix collections. oy.
Avatar 6:07pm Martinibomb:

Zines! Comix! I didn't even know what Zines were until maybe 1993?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Linda Lee:

I understand this. records are even more personal than clothing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

how the #%@! do you organize zines? Barnard Library does a very decent job, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Linda Lee:

it's interesting to me to try remembering what happened to my other collections. either i gave them away as a kind of watershed before a major change, or i sold them for money because money.
Avatar 6:10pm Martinibomb:

It's still crazy to me I have a show on WFMU... growing up hillbilly I'd never have thought I'd be doing this Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Martinibomb: yeah, who knew zines before 1993? Not many. When i met Chloe, July 4, 1994 (at the infamous PDX annual All Girls BBQ hosted by Kathy Molloy of "Snipehunt") she KNEW who i was and what zine i did. I am still reeling from surprise.
Avatar 6:11pm Martinibomb:

@Gran I got a job at Kinkos in 93 when I first moved to Portland that's how I know all the zineters/artists/musicians in town
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Linda Lee:

ain't life grand, though. full of surprising turns!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Linda Lee:

I'm about due now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Linda Lee:

I love that you just let it flow, MB. the playlist is there if we want it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Martinibomb:that was the way to do it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i deeply dig constraints. like OULIPO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Linda Lee:

sounds fine over here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Linda Lee:

constraints are good! innate structure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm ParUbi:

Like Georges Perec's _A Void_
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

ParUbi: i have that on my reading pile but i am frightened
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Linda Lee:

this is definitely not 1976 :-)
Avatar 6:20pm Martinibomb:

Hola ParUbi!
Avatar 6:21pm Martinibomb:

Avatar 6:22pm Mr Fab:

Just got in. The whole Fab fam has the day off so we went to a dog park near the Hollywood sign. Hi, tourists! How did today's programming go?
Avatar 6:22pm Martinibomb:

Hey Fab!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

only possibly 1976 in the minds of Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider
Avatar 6:23pm Martinibomb:

@Fab WWR had an issue and didn't air but I think the issue was on his side with MIXXX nothing to do with wfmu side
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Linda Lee:

Avatar 6:24pm spodiodi:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Linda Lee:

Avatar 6:25pm Martinibomb:

Heeeey Splodiodi! HOpe you're off to a good start so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Linda Lee:

i want to be sure & thank you, MB, for helping bring me out of a pretty dire funk today. it's been shit on a biscuit since early December & these tunes today do uplift. so thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Linda Lee: i hope 2020 brings many welcome surprises your way. And lots to look at. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Thanks, Martinibomb, gotta split. Thanks for these great tunes!
Avatar 6:31pm Mr Fab:

It was a good day, Linda- w/Baskin Robins after!
Ah man, Sorry to hear that about World's Worst Records. I'll check in with Darryl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Linda Lee:

mmmmmbaskin-robbins@ :-)
  6:38pm Mr Fab:

Wow, that was Devin and crew?! I thought it was the actual Morricone score. Damn, those guys are good. Gotta pick up their releases.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Linda Lee:

they are really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Rich in Washington:

MB, have you heard Federale? They're from Pee-Town and everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Linda Lee:

loving the Fast Camels! very cinematic. :-)
Avatar 6:43pm Martinibomb:

@Rich Federale yup! tho I have not seen them live I know they are very very good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Rich in Washington:

Really nice mix today, MB!
Avatar 6:50pm Martinibomb:

Happy New Year everyone. And I am looking forward to the New Roaring 20s, as we have some pretty exciting things on the horizon for this here channel, in our attempts to push back the Blue Meenies via Sheena's powerful juju. Ungawa!

Avatar 7:05pm Mr Fab:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Linda Lee:

Happy New Year DJ ARB! Ungawa!!
Avatar 7:06pm Martinibomb:

@Fab I think u should load that Morricone Youth Danger Diabolik album into the stream for sure it's soooo good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm ARB:

I was watching hypernormalisation for the thurd time, at midnight when the decade changed, whats wrong with me?! let's make the new 20's be as roaring as the last
Avatar 7:08pm Mr Fab:

I should - most of the original soundtrack is already in the stream, might as well add a killer remake of it, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm ARB:

Excited for the sounding forward horizon MB!!!
Avatar 7:11pm Martinibomb:

OKay everyone! Cya tomorrow for ARB and Ursula's shows
