Straight Up Puppy sounds like a good name for something though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08am Mr. Pumpy:

Damn...this sounds so much like an arpeggio I came up with recently on a free online sequencer. I couldn't really tell you about it theory wise. It was like splatter art for the ears.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10am Handy Haversack:

I see Straight Up Puppy on a sign on a tent for some reason.

When SM Ken was talking about the Yokohama Licking Festival, I kept picturing a vendor room with all these vendors trying not to be embarrassed that they, too, thought the name Just Toads! would set them apart from the crowd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10am Mr. Pumpy:

@rich...great disclaimer, but I hope it's more of a guarantee!
  12:11am P-90:

Yeah, “Mr. Puppy” sounds like a character who’s inevitably up to no good.
So, is this an archive-with-contemporary-comments, “new”-prerecorded, or...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am Handy Haversack:

(Continued grateful praise, @Scott Williams! Praise him with great praise!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am Mr. Pumpy:

@Handy...I am a camping enthusiast! Although it sounds like you may mean a vendor tent. "No bells or whistles on this pup...just straight up! (save fore the bell and or whistle it comes with free with purchase)"
  12:13am rich:

  12:14am P-90:

“Straight Up Pup” sounds like an animated character that does educational rap videos for preschoolers on PBS.

@rich, have you ever read _The Goshawk_ by T. H. White? Strongly recommend! A confrontation of two totally alien intelligences, using methods 400 years out of date, with the subtext of evading the social pressure of being against fighting a very popular war. And it's short!

Remind me to tell you my fund-raising scheme based around a fake all-kill dog shelter with lots of webcams in the kennels one day, Mr. P. We just might find that joke!

If you can call it that. An attempt...is what I'm comfortable with tagging it
Avatar 12:35am coelacanth∅:

yeah kinda the same. the shit was hitting the fan, then some other shit hit some other fan and made the first shit hitting the first fan hit that fan really hard.
big mess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am Handy Haversack:

Oh, that?

Well, the schtick is that each (ADORABLE) dog is on a 24-hour countdown clock to DOOM. Adopting a dog is super expensive ($5K?) because none of them are actually available -- just physically or digitally borrowed beloved pets. But you, the "mark" or "rube," don't know that. You think that when that clock hits zero, it's off to the axe shed for Mr. Puppy (there it is!).

But buying a dog another hour or even 10 or 20 minutes is pretty reasonable -- and under each crate's picture on your monitor, the red digits continue to count down and flash and FLASH.

I think we'd be PRINTING money for any nonprofit that really wants to commit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37am Handy Haversack:

@coela: that sounds shitty. Sorry, friend.

Lotta fans and shit flying around these days.

Avatar 12:43am JakeGould:

@Longitude: A few have. Depends on gear and setup speed. This kind of all dropped on everyone. Last Monday I was casually talking to a local cafe staff about how I am working from home because of this so “Ha! Ha! I’ll be in here more…” The next Monday they have closed and hope to reopen.
Avatar 12:44am coelacanth∅:

Handy, rich's comments are all algorithm
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am Mr. Pumpy:

@Handy...I'd like to expand on that. Due to the indecisiveness of your tagging the potential sucker, I'd like to name them Mark O'Rubio. You good with that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am Ken From Hyde Park:

There should be a contest at the county fair where the 4-H kids get a bicycle pump and a squirrel carcass and then race to get them inflated.

jackson heights still has a number of food trucks around since it's take out and not dependent on office workers
Avatar 1:42am JakeGould:

@rich: Food trucks should be fine depending on location. The taco trucks I know of are still doing business. But as I have said elsewhere, it seems that Asian owned businesses are scared of racist backlash. Chinese take out places have just closed overnight near me. Even some 99 cent stores. The world is getting very weird.

But there is a newsstand near my day job that is still open because the guy has no other job. He told me last Sunday that he made only $6 all of last Saturday in the heart of Greenwich Village.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45am Handy Haversack:

Jeez, other than walking up and down the block tonight to try to pinpoint where what sounded like a really nasty couple fight was coming from, I didn't go outside at all today.

We did order in tonight and maybe will do so again tomorrow before the local places have to close. While I keep cooking and freezing stuff.

This Mops!
  1:45am rich:

many of the food trucks that were in midtown began disappearing last Friday. if your customers are at home there's no reason to be there

Speaking of Fabio--I'm finishing a cassette transfer of Genesis-P-Orrige live at WFMU in 1988 for posting.
Avatar 1:47am JakeGould:

There was a potentially ugly domestic incident at a local bus stop. I thought a real scummy middle-aged drunk was harassing a teenage girl so I tried to intervene. Instead it ended up being a scummy middle-aged couple that endlessly gets drunk, endlessly fights and the guy chased me 1/2 way down the block when I tried to see what was happening. That has not happened to me in decades.
  1:47am rich:

great he mentioned that the other day. if you didn't hear fabio's show the other day you should listen in archives as he is the person here at the station to celebrate the life of genesis-p-orrige

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am Handy Haversack:

@JG: Sixteen years on this block, and I have never heard a fight like that coming from inside a building SOMEPLACE but loud enough that I could freak out about it.

@Fox: RIGHT? 100 percent agree! Dang. Another one that made me switch back to this tab with a "What is THIS?!"!
Avatar 1:52am JakeGould:

Yeah, young like the time I was chased for a block by a pack of stray dogs when I was 11 and walking home from school. Or young like when Hymie — the high functioning old guy who made grocery deliveries with an old school baby carriage — threw redeemable bottles at me and friends when we came too close to him. Or when “Disco Freddy” (a neighborhood boardwalk character) chased us down the boardwalk because we were riding bikes near him doing his “act.” The act was him winding up the crowd and jumping over a small grocery bag.

Anyway, it did make me feel young! So yeah… Thanks!

There's two drunk couples on the porch across the street. They are in a donnybrook of a political argument. Shouting and screaming. The thing is is they are all Trump supporters and they don't realize they really agree on what they are saying.
Avatar 1:59am JakeGould:

FWIW, even museums that don’t have formal online content for times like this have great archives and audioguides to their exhibitions. Like I was looking forward to seeing this “Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945” exhibit but now online is the only way: whitney.org...

Hey Coela, Mr. Pumpy, Handy, chresti, Jake, KenfromHydePark, Chop Scott and Mr. Willams. Sinner, there is no better place to be sleepless than radioland WFMU.
Avatar 2:05am JakeGould:

In NYC it is deathly quiet. The only place I walked past that had music playing — I mean this is a voluntary “stay at home” thing; not stop listening thing — was an Italian Social Club blasting pretty decent 1980s and 1990s pop in their parking lot.
  2:05am rich:

there's probably no better soundtrack for drunk swapsters arguing across the street than WFMU either

Hi, Tamar!

I am enjoying some time using the internet for fun instead of work or "what the hell now?!" purposes.

Also, some dog petting is going on.

Night, @JG!

Said busker has a limited repertoire, but he’s moved on from Chris Isaac in heavy rotation.

it was the guitar player? i heard the trumpet player earlier in the day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14am Fox:

Mr Pumpy - They are probably safer up there. Good timing for them, unless they have crucial medications or something that they can't get to.
  2:15am Tamar:

Trumpet player earlier. I dunno. Maybe it was the trumpet player. I recall songs with words, but maybe I added the words in my head. Maybe they were together. Nothing is real.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16am Mr. Pumpy:

Fox...no, they're good. I agree with you. They were thrown for a loop because they thought they'd be coming back soon...but better off otherwise.
  2:17am rich:

if you are looking for something to do in the coming weeks there was something in the times earlier today about how many blood drives have been cancelled so there are potential shortages of blood. you can go here: www.aabb.org...
to find out where you can donate blood
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20am Handy Haversack:

Good point, @rich. No point hoarding blood -- we can't make onions out of it!

Tried to complete our census since we got a thing in the mail. According to the government internet, as soon as March 12 they will be ready to accept my response! So good job, government!

I guess I'll go to the bed once the squirrel is fully inflated. It sure has been nice to have a few hours with some drinks to cut down the worry and be able to get my FMU on without relying on it as a lifeline. Instead just ... enjoying. Anyway. Sure am glad to have been here, and the show was really great, Rich. I don't normally last this long on a Friday night. Almost like there are extenuating circumstances!

But THANKS for putting this together and for hanging out. I bet you'll like _The Goshawk_.

And Scott, dang, man, massive towering heaps of praise and thanks for keeping it going!

Night, Rich, Scott, Tamar, Mr. P, Ken, everybody!
