Hi, Keilidh. Happy to be here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09am Handy Haversack:

Hey, Daisy!
  12:10am JakeGould:

The reality much like there is social drinking of booze and beer and anti-social drinking of such stuff, for me caffeine is fine unless I am stuck at home all day and then it’s just a drug and no joy.

Anyway, that message was for Keilidh since she wants souls.

@Jake good to hear. I have to quit my caffeine around noon or I don't sleep that night

Thanks coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am coelacanth∅:

is that the blood in a can with a "widget"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am Handy Haversack:

Keilidh, D&D update: They finally stopped messing with the dream moths and actually confronted the spectre the Dream-Bringer. Rather than tussle with her, the traded a unique gem called the Colors of the Storm for the last of the mouth-baby clones, which Shadirigol had turned into an enveloping vampire thing thinking that would make it more valuable. So they finally killed the last of the mouth babies, and then tragically during their drunken debauchery the thief accidentally donated a lot of money to an orphanage and is dealing with the shame! Now they are investigating several cults that formed around a drained and tainted chariot racer.

tl;dr: My, what an ugly baby. Maybe it will grow into those wings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am Handy Haversack:

*Shadirigol the Dream-Bringer.

hey Keilidh!! keep rockin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am mariano:

Ooh, sorry to hear about the migraine Keilidh. I started getting them my teen years through late 20s, they'd completely lay me out for hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am chresti:

Yeah migraines suck.

@handy - ha! that was a good one Handy. I wish Jeff Bezos would "accidentally" give everyone his wealth
  12:17am JakeGould:

FWIW, my soul is only tarnished by my snipping off cherry blossoms from trees in Park Slope when the urge hits. Nobody is really enjoying them nowadays and it’s just one thing. May “He” forgive “Me.”

Handy: Has anyone discovered the Lenses? You know, the ones that made me suspect you of having a secret Mormon agenda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18am coelacanth∅:

well you're doing the right thing, playing calming music. you'll feel good in no time.
Avatar 12:18am Keilidh:

ty for the sympathy i have been dealing with migraines ever since i was little! they are just so awful and annoying, usually only sleep helps
Avatar 12:19am Richard from Venezuela:

Exactly. Only sleep could help.
  12:19am Matt:

What an intro. How about Hate Forest “The Gatez”?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am coelacanth∅:

maybe you're allergic to that particular brand of blood
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am Handy Haversack:

@mariano: not yet! Maybe this new cult would be a good place for those ...
Avatar 12:20am Keilidh:

@coel - could be! it is a new brand, this time extra "bubly"

reminds me of the time i was allergic to my bf because he used Tide detergent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21am Phillippe Bastille:

There are chresti paintings to look at?
Avatar 12:22am Keilidh:

under me for the first part of this mic break is the theme from 1979's "Phantasm"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22am Handy Haversack:

It's Michael Bublé, isn't it? You're drinking his canned blood.

Well, that's OK.

(I, too, want to know about the chresti paintings!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22am mariano:

Speaking of wealth sharing, Keilidh, I was wondering earlier why the government can't just pay us to consume to keep the economy humming. It's obvious they need us. We should have a consumers' union.
  12:22am Matt:

Carole Baskin!
  12:22am choggie:

hey I just thought of something, do you think there's going to be a lot of teenage pregnancies what with this never ending summer for all the kids in school?
  12:22am JakeGould:

Smells in personal care items are really something. I couldn’t find the shampoo I usually use, so I bought “Prell” for the first time since high school… Wow, that stuff smells like a literal ashtray… Dumped it a few days later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22am Handy Haversack:

Love that movie, Keilidh!
  12:23am choggie:

you know when the bars reopen, they're going to be full of newly divorced cougars! gentlemen, start your engines!

  12:24am choggie:

HAH! prell shampoo smells like some kind of industrial cleaner doesn't it?
  12:24am JakeGould:

And the streets of Brooklyn will be filled with newly divorced/dumped hobos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24am chresti:

Haha choggie.
  12:24am choggie:

what scared me as a kid about Phantasm, wasn't the ball, it was that creepy dude at the graveyard lifting that casket into the back of the hearse by himself that freaked me out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24am Handy Haversack:

The album covers are a super addition! It's like being there!
Avatar 12:25am Keilidh:

@mariano (12:22) - yup. apparently bc they're all dumb dumbies

I always imagine myself as the friendly ice cream man and getting out of the ice cream truck to play guitar with my friend.
  12:25am JakeGould:

@choggie: It’s so bad. And that is on purpose? It’s like all the scents you don’t want… But on your head!

Hey ho, Kayleeee! My request: Nothing Means Nothing Anymore by The Alley Cats. They saw the future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26am Handy Haversack:

@mariano: Just saw your "Jean-Luc!" from Marty's show: EXACTLY.
  12:27am choggie:

prell shampoo had that sexy bottle though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27am mariano:

Jake: my supermarket only had Irish Spring for a while (I'm normally plain Dial or Lever 2000), such an awful scent. With Phantasm, the thing that really got me most was the kid looking at that antique photo of the tall man sitting on the carriage, then tall man turns and looks at him and drives the carriage out of frame.

Getting Janky up in hurrrrrr
  12:27am choggie:

I remember the first time I bought a can of that slime stuff at the toy store it reminded me of prell shampoo
  12:28am JakeGould:

@choggie: Yes! Slime!
  12:28am nobeatbeat:

  12:28am choggie:

how about when you spent the night at somebody's house, and the only shampoo they had in the shower was Head and Shoulders?
Avatar 12:28am Keilidh:

@franco - request received!!

  12:31am JakeGould:

If you want to laugh, go look at reviews online for Jean Nate. They are past belief.

“Selsun Blue” sounds like some futuristic drug.

Weren't there Jean Nate ads with a jockey theme? And a sort of sped up/coked up repetition of the words "Jean Nate Jean Nate"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33am mariano:

Handy - yeah, snuck that one in ;) On the topic of gangstas gone soft, there was an SNL skit some time in the last few years about OGs in Bushwick visiting artisanal mayonnaise shops, having brunch, taking spin classes, etc.

Might try “Herbal Essences” to see if that at least smells nice.

Also, here are what perfume fans say about Jean Nate: www.basenotes.net...

“The over-riding impression I get with the new formulation is they added a cinnamony note, which destroys the freshness and piquancy. Actually the combination is a little nauseating.”

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46am Franco Twinkie:

I think I was to busy taking drugs when Slime was in the toy stores, but the equivalent for my age group was Super Stuff, a bright pink powder you mixed with water that turned into a blob-like mass. One afternoon my mom found it in it's tub, abandoned in the back of the fridge and asked me "Do you want this?" It had turned the color of liver. I said "Give me that" and I took it across the street and smeared it on the side of the neighbors house, which they had just repainted. I threw the tub on their front lawn and went back inside to watch cartoons.

Here's a poem. Kind of well known, and a little old-fashioned, but it still has teeth to it.

Love Song: I and Thou
By Alan Dugan

Nothing is plumb, level, or square:
the studs are bowed, the joists
are shaky by nature, no piece fits
any other piece without a gap
or pinch, and bent nails
dance all over the surfacing
like maggots. By Christ
I am no carpenter. I built
the roof for myself, the walls
for myself, the floors
for myself, and got
hung up in it myself. I
danced with a purple thumb
at this house-warming, drunk
with my prime whiskey: rage.
Oh I spat rage’s nails
into the frame-up of my work:
it held. It settled plumb,
level, solid, square and true
for that great moment. Then
it screamed and went on through,
skewing as wrong the other way.
God damned it. This is hell,
but I planned it. I sawed it,
I nailed it, and I
will live in it until it kills me.
I can nail my left palm
to the left-hand crosspiece but
I can’t do everything myself.
I need a hand to nail the right,
a help, a love, a you, a wife.

One last poem. This is my and Kate's poem the way couples have a song.

Paul Celan, “So Many Constellations”:

So many constellations that
are held out to us. I was,
when I looked at you — when? —
outside by
the other worlds.

O these ways, galactic.
O this hour, that weighed
nights over for us into
the burden of our names. It is,
I know, not true
that we lived, there moved,
blindly, no more than a breath between
There and Not-There, and at times
our eyes whirred comet-like
toward things extinguished, in chasms,
and where they had burnt out,
splendid with teats, stood Time
on which already grew up
and down and away all that
is or was or will be —,

I know.
I know and you know, we knew,
we did not knew, we
were there, after all, and not there
and at times when
only the void stood between us we got
all the way to each other.

Here's a poem I rediscovered today. I found a short (~30 min) YT documentary on Silver Apples and I remember learning (then forgetting) where they got the name:

The Song of Wandering Aengus

I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout.

When I had laid it on the floor
I went to blow the fire a-flame,
But something rustled on the floor,
And someone called me by my name:
It had become a glimmering girl
With apple blossom in her hair
Who called me by my name and ran
And faded through the brightening air.

Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done,
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18am Handy Haversack:

Oh, hey, Mr. P: You hopping in tomorrow?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18am Handy Haversack:

@mariano: IRONCLAD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19am Mr. Pumpy:

I've never been either. I keep threatening to go see Chris, but his touring schedule is not easy for me to plan around. I've become internet friends with peeps through him though. Cool art/music scene. It's a hub of sorts, for the nation...for those things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21am Mr. Pumpy:

Handy, that's the plan. I have to run a quick errand wherein I'm victim to other's schedules. I may be a hair after noon, 10 mins or so. Is that cool?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22am mariano:

Yeah, probably better, Handy. I was working on some longboat rock lyrics though: "If you like Harald Hardrada, gettin' caught in the rain..."

Oy. I'm so sorry.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23am Handy Haversack:

Of course! No prob. I just want to be sure to send you the link to whatever we're using. Did you get on the Discord? If not, I will send another invite tomorrow.

What is the trick to recording with friends live on "video"? Still trying to figure this out if anyone can point me in the right direction.

Good looks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25am mariano:

Uh... way ahead of you there actually, String. ;)
Avatar 2:25am Keilidh:

@mb - i believe most of those are done with post-production. sending files back and forth, filming video over the final version etc
Avatar 2:26am Keilidh:

@mb - unless you didn't mean recording music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26am Mr. Pumpy:

Handy, I have the zoom link you sent, if that still works I have it, otherwise zap a new one. I haven't gone on Discord. Maybe now! I'm flying blind.

No i mean attempting to play "live", Keilidh. We are figuring a click track is necessary.

Avatar 2:30am Keilidh:

@mb - yeah that sounds difficult!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30am Handy Haversack:

Yes, the Zoom works, Mr. P!

@mb, from what Kate's figuring out, it looks like most of the "concerts" are only the singer live, and otherwise everyone has recorded their individual tracks through Garage Band. She and her band are looking into something called JamKazam (I think) that supposedly lets you play together in real time -- but I can't figure out what the system requirements are, which makes me dubious.

@hp - and then they went down to georgia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31am Mr. Pumpy:

mb...I'll tell you the way the video was made of the Steely Dan song. Nate, Dave Hill, etc...the string section, recorded scratch tracks to a click and they were sent to someone that quickly mixed them. Then the guitars went to Chris and he did the drum tracks along to them. Then the drum tracks were sent back to the guitarists, bass player and vocalists and they all did/re-did their respective parts to the drums and it was mixed/mastered. As far as the video goes, they all performed to the track and recorded themselves after the fact. So...yeah, not all live playing for the video part. Then edited all together, and that's that. The software and all, not sure. I think Chris used something primitive. There are a million free programs out there. www.youtube.com...

Actually, I found the lyrics and they're really interesting, seems the song's about Eleanor of Aquitaine, one of the badassest women of the Middle Ages. Katharine Hepburn really embodied the role in The Lion in Winter. Anyway, in the song she slaughters a pig. I'll work on a translation.

Ok, thanks so much Keilidh, crew, and everyone for hanging out, amazing Saturday night. Stay safe!

I love the Meurtrières artwork. It reminds me of an early Artillery or Sodom cover.

Oh, Orpahnofkos: it looks like they took a line drawing then added some Photoshop effects to it like a drop shadow, maybe bevel & emboss. Just my guess.
