I am proud to say that the official Richard Brautigan Library resides in my hometown of Vancouver Washington.

@Darryl - it's just so lovely, isn't it? :-)
Avatar 3:03pm worldsworstrecords:

It really is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The BRD catalogue of Bruton has some genuinely beautiful albums :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Bruton goes from BRA through to BRZ! lol
Avatar 3:05pm worldsworstrecords:

Off to grab a cuppa... back shortly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Enjoy! Don't forget to add a biscuit! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's a cinematic quality about these records that I really love
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm joe:

Can't beat how spot on the title is here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi joe! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

DJ GG! I already adore you and your show and now you're reading Brautigan. *swoon*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello lovely Granny! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - I sent you some videos on Instagram to brighten your day :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

GG: yay! looking forward to checking that out. (i took a bit of a screen break yesterday)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - I honestly don't blame you. I've been limiting my screen time as well <3
  3:17pm Martinibomb:

I haven't read much of Brautigan's work need to remedy that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - they're sort of counterculture science fiction if that makes sense? rather in the same vein as Stranger In A Strange Land, I think. Emotion-wise.
  3:18pm MattyDread:

This is Beautiful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello lovely Matty!!! :-)
  3:19pm MattyDread:

:-)
  3:20pm Martinibomb:

i'm reading about the plot to in watermelon sugar with iDeath etc.. sound interesting. Post-apocalyptic new Eden
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If you haven't already checked out Matty's wonderful set from Saturday on The Exotica Group, please do :-) Genuinely one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

@DJGG: My sweetie and i recently learned about the marvels of the Market Diner. We were wondering if you have some experience with that place?!?!?
Avatar 3:20pm StringOFperils:

@mBomb...Nor I. Not sure why I seemed to avoid Richard Brautigan in the 70s...I think (maybe) it seemed to me to be connected to something 'hippieish', for lack of a better term. And I was going all Mike Oldfield and Tangerine Dream and Yes at the time...moving away form the perceived California thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - very much so! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - I do, but like most people in Brighton, late at night and very drunk ;-)
Avatar 3:21pm StringOFperils:

Still don't know what Brautigan was really all about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello StringOFperils! :-)
  3:22pm Martinibomb:

@perils I think maybe that's why I avoided him when I was younger. I think I've learned enough about 60s counter culture now to appreciate it more
Avatar 3:22pm StringOFperils:

And I was still catching up with Wordsworth and Shelley and that lot.....Brautigan was too far ahead perhaps, for me.
Avatar 3:23pm StringOFperils:

Hello DJGG. Sorry, I just chat-bomb all the time, and rarely say Hi , formally.
  3:23pm Martinibomb:

chat bomb! HAH That is a nicer term
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love that! "Chat Bomb" :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I hope this is making you all feel suitable relaxed :-)
Avatar 3:25pm Domenic:

Hi! What a busy room! Just got in from splitting wood in the yard. Very relaxed.
Avatar 3:26pm StringOFperils:

btw GG, I caught your Monday show in the archives, AND also your 10cc thing with spaceBro. Nice !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello Domenic! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - so glad you enjoyed them both! The 10cc one was so much fun to do :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

DJGG: it sounds like that's the only way to go to The Market Diner.
In Watermelon Sugar is one of my favorite Brautigan books ever.
StringOFperils: Brautigan is a strange and marvelous blend of schizophrenia and alcoholism converging with the 60s counterculture (he weren't no hippie, though). When he hits it, he is dazzling.
Avatar 3:28pm StringOFperils:

Well, GST, I'd better go back and take a closer look. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The Market Diner is a veritable institution in Brighton :-)
A greasy spoon/hamburger joint that stays open all night so perfect for clubbers and ravers ;-)
Avatar 3:29pm Domenic:

So! Funny story. Since I'm not working and home. Exposing my daughter to all sorts of Sheena's. GG's distinctive voice and show comes on and she says " OH! the hippy lady again"! Apparently the "Cosmic Thoughts" segment left an impression!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Domenic - that's wonderful!!! I am very proud to be "the hippie lady" :-D Tell her I said hi and send hugs <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Rich in Washington:

Granny, if you ever make it to Vancouver again you should really check out the Brautigan Library. It's in a section of the county history museum. The gentleman who curates it was one of his friends and ended up being his literary custodian, of sorts.
  3:31pm Martinibomb:

^ I did't knw that very cool
Avatar 3:31pm Domenic:

Done! hugs and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I like that the curator has a direct connection. A loving memorial :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Cmurtha:

Did John Williams just rip that flute, or am I just imagining the similarity.
Avatar 3:33pm StringOFperils:

@cmurtha..They both have the generic in a deep embrace.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Cmurtha! I imagine he knew a load of the library artists so it's a distinct possibility ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My daughter can't listen to Modernists. She says I'm doing "Mum reading a bedtime story voice" and it makes her too sleepy! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Rich in Washington: wait, what. Fricking Vancouver has a Brautigan library?!?!? Well, since i can't seem to avoid the Lower COlumbia region, i am sure to stray that way whenever i'm set loose again. Yeah! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Rich in Washington:

He's a pal - a professor at nearby Washington State University. He was practically Richard's chauffeur when he was in college. He has some pretty cool stories about him.
  3:36pm MattyDread:

these are the sounds ,vibes my head needs in this troubled time ..wonderful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Matty - so glad it's helping :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Rich in Washington:

He ended up having all of his papers, etc, so donated it to the library with the proviso that they recreate Richard's idea of a library, to which anyone can submit a manuscript or book of their own.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - that sounds like such a lovely place :-)
Avatar 3:39pm StringOFperils:

A madman in the trout-hatchery. I like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's starting to get dark here and the music is perfect for it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One of the flat's opposite has a colour-changing light in the window, and as I looked up at it, it was morphing from this glorious teal blue into a bright fuchsia pink. Beautiful :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Rich in Washington:

I'll bet sunsets are lovely where you're at.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - they've been incredible just lately. Gorgeous tangerine oranges and dusky pinks with hints of purple. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Two more tracks after this and then Martinibomb is up next with Medium Cool! Hurray!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Everybody stay and listen and support Martinibomb today <3
  3:53pm MattyDread:

My 6 year old daughter just came down stairs from bed and said this sounds nice
  3:53pm ParUbi ¤¤¤¤:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Cmurtha:

This is pretty good, got a strong Mort Garrison thing going.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Matty - please send her hugs, too! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you, ParUbi! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Cmurtha - glad you've enjoyed it! :-)
Avatar 3:55pm StringOFperils:

This is where I wake up and realize that my rowboat has gently drifted 10 miles out past the flood barrier. Might as well stick around to listen to martinibomb, right after I locate that flare gun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - as long as you've got chocolate, you're good ;-)
Avatar 3:56pm StringOFperils:

A motto for the ages GG. thx 4 the shew !

Thank you all SO much for listening - sending each and every one of you a massive hug :-)
I'll be back on Friday with The Flange & Frigate Show! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Thanks, GG, this has been so lovely. And Rich in WA: i hope to hear more about Brautigan's pal and the Brautigan library. Everyone: see you in Martinibomb's lair next!
