Evie called me her left-handed guitar brother when I did sound for her set on Gaylord's show a couple years back - haven't washed my left hand since! Great great track

loving this Bhajan Boy track...and you played my all-time fave Can track. Drifting off for now, but will be digging into the archive as always...

  12:54am rw:

Hey Scott and/or Nick, what was the deal with last week's archive? I was a little confused. Was the show truncated?
  Swag For Life Member 12:55am Nick Name:

rw: had technical issues so had to go to a archived show after the first hour
  12:55am JakeGould:

@Fox: You should reclaim it as an actual fox and the foxes socially distant friends!

You know they are blaming NYC for being the place that spread Coronavirus out to everyone else in the U.S.

Hah! Ok, but do you mean monkeys from the Dead Sea or... ok I'll stop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01am spodiodi:

i didn't, JakeGould. but apparently a nail salon was first community spread in CA according to da gubna
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01am spodiodi:

"they" know everything
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03am mariano:

I've always had a fondness for three-word combinations whose meaning can change depending on which word you stress. Dead Sea Apes, Huge Ass Beers (a joint in the French Quarter), George Carlin's "Ranger Dan and his Big Dog Dick".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04am Fox:

Funny that they can tell us where it came from with such certainty, as if it even matters at this point, and yet Contact Tracing is getting absolutely no support as something to employ and put real effort into to ensure we can open up safely.
  1:05am rw:

Ah! Nick, that's what I suspected, but I couldn't figure out if the glitch was in the actual show or just the archive. Makes sense. Sorry the show got cut off, but glad you were able to get some extra sleep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05am Fox:

Carlin put out a new hour long special almost every year, didn't he? I should plow through those as something to listen to when I need words but don't want current events.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am Fox:

@Jake: I wonder if they would sue me for copyright infringement. Could they, if it is legally my name? Maybe if I use and ampersand or an 'n' instead?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am mariano:

Carlin's always a balm for the soul, Fox. Regarding stories on NYC as the US epicenter, the New Orleans Times-Picayune's headline thankfully avoids sensationalism: "How did coronavirus get to Louisiana? New York is possible source, but scientists aren't sure"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am Fox:

I need a proper working computer that is less than eight years old so I can make my podcast. If I ever has a spinoff, I could have a bunch of rotating co-hosts, and call it Fox and Friend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13am mariano:

That's brilliant, Fox!
  1:13am rw:

I need to check out early this evening. Thank you Nick and Scott. Outstanding as always. Take care everyone.
  Swag For Life Member 1:14am Nick Name:

rw: no rest for the wicked , i was still doing the playlist live and Scott scrambled and got the archive running in time!
My Laptop met its death but it was 10 years old and i seriously used it 24/7 (i hear you Fox!)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14am spodiodi:

night, rw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14am Fox:

I mean... fuck, I'm not surprised if it IS where most US cases came from. Everyone left to stay at whatever bucolic home town they came from to get their two-five years in Brooklyn cred. The same assholes who are trying to sublet their furnished apartments.

Nobody wanted to be stuck in their sunless, overpriced shitholes. Most of these folks never thought of NYC as home, only as a place to crash, y'know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15am Scott Williams:

@Fox, I'm glad my off-the-cuff couldn't-resist comment has grown legs - run with it!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am Fox:

Nick - I'm currently on a macbook from 2009 I just brought back from the dead with a SSD. I also have a macbook pro from 2013 that I use constantly. It is on it's last legs and was brought back from death during the whole macbook pro soldering fiasco that plagued this model. When I tried to install a SSD in that one, I opened it up to find that the battery was super swollen (!!), so I had to remove it, and now it won't stay on. Technically it SHOULD be able to work perfectly fine without a battery as long as it's plugged in, but it just keeps restarting. Not sure if it's worth buying a new battery or not. Cheaper than a new computer, I guess.... but I really need something new, regardless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27am Fox:

mariano: Fox and FIENDS is what it should be ALWAYS!!!! That's so much better! Fabulous!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am PigeonsAndRust:

Chiming in from the Hudson Valley, I read back over the comments here and got a good laugh. This music is just perfect tonight! @Fox I was thinking the other day I hadn't encountered you on the comment boards in a little bit, I am glad you are well!
  1:49am JakeGould:

@Fox: Pretty sure they are closed nowadays because of all of this, but the Lower East Side Ecology Center’s E-Warehouse on President Street actually sells older MacBooks for a decent price. They refurb machines and have a decent selection. They might even be open to diagnosing an issue… But then again who knows when they will reopen?
  1:50am BH:

I've actually been using a desktop more than a laptop for the last few years. Starting when my laptop was trying to kill itself via update.
The laptop is still around as the secondary device. It's 6 yrs old and has various flaws (some of the keyboard keys don't work and the power connector is probably pushed in a little).
  Swag For Life Member 1:50am Nick Name:

Ajay from Krommenie / NL: Your welcome, will be playing more...great album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am PigeonsAndRust:

I use a Panasonic Toughbook laptop that a previous employer never sent me a Mailer with which to return. Tis old--Windows 7...but it has a touchscreen, and I have personally seen them run over, punched, and dropped out of second story windows by disgruntled techs-- they really ARE tough! I had a customer tell me one of them saved her life by taking a bullet from an angry insurance claimant.
  1:55am JakeGould:

The new MacBook Air (2020) is really the best of the new models of the MacBook Airs. The thing is those stupid butterfly keyboards are horrible. Even if they didn’t break for dumb reasons they felt like crap. I have used all three iterations and the 2020 model is the only one that has a decent keyboard since it’s a lot like the older MacBook keyboards. Wow! What a crazy idea!
  1:56am BH:

Upon reflection, I forgot that the location of my laptop charging port (middle-back) has annoyed me for awhile. It would be a good location if I used it in a layout where the cord could drop to the floor behind the laptop (which I don't). So instead it goes middle-back, left corner, left side, then to the floor. Partly because the USB port is also in the back, so I can't use it with the cord where it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59am spodiodi:

i didn't like the 2019 mbp 13 nor the 2019 macbook air keyboards. the 2019 mbp 16 keyboard was better, but i still like my 2009 mbp keyboard best, for the most part. have to try the 2020 air (didn't realize new kybd)
  1:59am JakeGould:

For most people I will be honest and say an iPad might be all they really need nowadays.
  1:59am greatb:

dang
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00am spodiodi:

my 2015 mbp 15 keyboard was okay enough, as i recall
  Swag For Life Member 2:00am Nick Name:

Hello PigeonsAndRust / greatb
  2:02am greatb:

That was Raga Manj Khamaj and not Sindhi Bhairavi, right? Or am I looking at it wrong?
  2:02am JakeGould:

@spidiodi: They also fixed another issue with the older MacBook Air keyboards: The arrow keys now are properly 1/2 height on the 2020 model as they used to be. If you are typing and move your hand to them now you immediately know they are arrow keys. The 2018 and 2019 models had full height keys that you couldn’t just feel to find. Look at pics to see what I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05am spodiodi:

you mean the left and right arrows, eh, JakeGould? i see the up and down arrows are full size on some
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05am spodiodi:

ach -- i mean up and down are half on both, and some has full size left and rights
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06am spodiodi:

got ya
  2:06am JakeGould:

Yeah left and right. Big difference.
  Swag For Life Member 2:06am Nick Name:

@greatb: it very well could be, part 1 maybe? - i need to check and correct if so - thankyou
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08am spodiodi:

my cheap little laptop has half height Home/PgUp and PgDn/End above left and right arrows, respectively, and i'm always pressing the home & end when reaching for the spaces i'm used to above L & R half-height keys
  2:11am JakeGould:

Oof! That sound bad.
  2:11am greatb:

part one and two combined as on the streaming version i'm seeing... seemed around 51 minutes
  Swag For Life Member 2:13am Nick Name:

@greatb: and so it is - thanks!
  2:15am greatb:

thanks for playing, i was blown away! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16am Fox:

Hey, Pidge! Nice to see you too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19am Fox:

I want a desktop at this point as well. It hurts too much to use a laptop. The posture it demands is awful. I've been dreaming out my lazy-boy computer setup, with a monitor on a posable arm. Pain free computering!
  2:20am Ajay from Krommenie / NL:

Just to add the BHAJAN BHOY album is released on my own Wormer Bros. Records label and is a limited edition run of 250 copies on vinyl....out 5 June 2020
