Now, that's just strange.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Yvang:

Is this a picture of the secret pipeline between Portland and Leipzig?
Avatar 3:01pm David Dichelle:

Hey ßrian, that comment can aptly refer to any number of things.
Avatar 3:02pm David Dichelle:

Yvang, that is not entirely out of the question!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm brainiac:

I see it as a repurposed platform from which to shoot rockets at England
Avatar 3:02pm David Dichelle:

brainiac: Less likely than the pipeline to Portland, I would think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Yvang:

Or a failed replica of the cloaca by Wim Delvoye?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm brainiac:

But then I've been trying to finish Gravity's Rainbow for the last 3 years.

Hey Martinibomb!
Avatar 3:05pm Sem:

Hello, David, and all aboard.

NO autotune here.
Avatar 3:06pm Listening Out There:

Hmm. The pipe likely carries waste, so it's Blechsit. That's what I think...
Avatar 3:06pm David Dichelle:

Hello Sem and LOT!
Avatar 3:07pm David Dichelle:

And good one, most likely guess so far. I am not entirely sure myself, I have to admit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Yvang:

Nice to hear this CSNY, I was a fan as a kid, thanks to my parents!

I like this graffiti. Hello travelers.

Hello Cmurtha!
Avatar 3:10pm David Dichelle:

Yvang, yes takes me back as well.
Avatar 3:11pm David Dichelle:

A lot of the pipes around here are also district heating pipes, but this one does look a bit different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Phillippe Bastille:

Howdy! It's great that Tuesday afternoon got here so fast so I can climb aboard again! Not so great that yet another week raced by without me making a worthwhile contribution to society. Can't have everything I guess
Avatar 3:14pm Martinibomb:

sounding good!
Avatar 3:19pm David Dichelle:

Hey there PB!
Avatar 3:20pm David Dichelle:

PB: I think many of the most worthwhile contributions go unnoticed.

Ahoy there Spodiodi and Stanley!

Oh yes A Flock of Seagulls, famous for ridiculous haircuts, I remember.
Avatar 4:14pm David Dichelle:

Hey, it was the 80s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Stanley:

No excuse.
However, I think we're back into the era of ridiculous haircuts now.
Avatar 4:17pm David Dichelle:

Well, to be honest, they really outdid their contemporaries.

Avatar 4:30pm Brian in UK:

Hello David and travellers. Is there a toilet on this train by that I mean one that works.
Avatar 4:30pm Brian in UK:

@βrian we will take a powder on that one.
Avatar 4:31pm βrian:

@BUK: I meant for Scotland, in particular.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Stanley:

Fine over here, Sem. Dead time of year, though.
@βrian - polls show those in favour of independence now in the majority.

And hello Carmichael!

Oh ofcourse, we do need a new name, Joxsit. Johnson and skool snitch Cummins are deciding what newspapers can attend briefings. Sound familiar?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Carmichael:

Good thing I was late back to work, what with the Flock of Seagulls and such. :)
Avatar 4:37pm Brian in UK:

@Carmichael, not sure if you saw my late comment yesterday on Joe's show. Condolences.
Avatar 4:37pm Sem:

Jules: You, Flock-of-Seagulls, know why we're here? Why don't you tell my man Vince were you got the shit hid at?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm chresti:

I woke up to the Lung Lung song, after having a little doze.

(although, I guess technically my wife was a roommate)
Avatar 4:51pm northguineahills:

ahh, I have this Diabate….
Avatar 4:52pm βrian:

Saw Toumani Diabate when he was here in Madison. Really hypnotic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm chresti:

I love it.
Avatar 4:52pm David Dichelle:

Yes, it is a great album!
Avatar 4:58pm Brian in UK:

Kulanjan is the name of a track on Mail:Cordes Anciennes by Toumani's and Ballake Sissoko's dads.

How about "Don't Fear the Fier"... as in hours... in German... OK I'll stop now

David, got an urgent date with the Long Goodbye. Ofcourse the archives are open twenty fours hours a day.
Time to stop frivolities like eating and save it all for the Marathon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Carmichael:

Make it 14:04 out here on the coast.

Hey Mark and Dutchtheo!

It's 20:04 UTC here, and well, everywhere....

Good evening to everyone now in their evenings (when does evening actually start?)

When does evening even start, you mean?

Happy time zoning, y'all

whoops, it's 22:12 UTC (can't math today...)

Yes, when would you start wishing someone a good evening? I can imagine it differs from place to place.
Avatar 5:12pm David Dichelle:

Carmichael: Not a bad definition!

About the same time you change from brown dress shoes to black, no?

My problem is I don't know when Happy Hour ends ...

What time is it in Iowa?!

Time for some software testing, for sure.
Avatar 5:28pm David Dichelle:

Much too late, Dutchtheo.

We voted here on Sunday - paper ballots - all counted within 3 hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Phillippe Bastille:

@dutchtheo Iowa isn't allowed to be a state anymore. I had a friend from Iowa who used to say it was an acronym for Idiots Out Wandering Around. I guess he was telling the truth instead of kidding around...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm doctorjazz:

Paul Desmond's famous "dry martini" sound.
Avatar 5:44pm Listening Out There:

Desmond liked to be known as the world's slowest alto player. That nicely countered high-speed bop....

I like Paul Desmond.

My stop. A delightful ride once again, DD. See you and all a little further down the track.

Seeing Andy Statman this Sunday (saw him not too long ago with his Klezmer group; this time it seems he's formed a bluegrass group after many years not playing it).

@NGH hope it goes well

Yes, good luck NGH, moves are never easy.
