A huge thank you to Darryl for the wonderful Worlds Worst Records Show and also for filling in for me on Monday <3

i'm still here! :-D
i think you'll make this fire manageable, GG.
Avatar 3:00pm worldsworstrecords:

lovely, seamless handover there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hey Georgy. I see HWM and FDL are in sync for twoo weeks! yay!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello Darryl and Linda Lee! :-)
Avatar 3:01pm StringOFperils:

Hello, for a while...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Jan! Hi StringOFperils! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Linda Lee:

aren't these amazing sounds right straightaway!! delicious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Jan - are we? Do tell! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - I've got three fabulous albums for you all this week :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Linda Lee:

.. so soft & chewy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Linda Lee:

oh! fantastic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Listener Bob in PGH:

Wednesday afternoon. Sheer aural bliss. Pleasant sigh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Jan Turkenburg:

The coming two shows are all about robot songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've got my best speaking voice on this week ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Jan Turkenburg:

of Frame Duggy Louder that is
Avatar 3:03pm worldsworstrecords:

Just off to sort my recycling and get a cuppa... back soon x
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Jan - aha! Mind meld ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Linda Lee:

wow..
i'm all about this show, love. just so ya know. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - :-) <3
Avatar 3:05pm StringOFperils:

Lonely and foreboding...like the writing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Linda Lee:

perfection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - when I was putting the playlist together, my partner said "This sounds very Bladerunner-y" LOL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Linda Lee:

Bladerunnery! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is the penultimate chapter of the book ... can you guess what next week is? ;-)
Avatar 3:07pm StringOFperils:

Your choices resonate, in that case.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you :-)
Avatar 3:07pm StringOFperils:

The ultimate chapter of the book?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - maybe ... ;-)
Avatar 3:08pm StringOFperils:

That opens up a lot of territory for guessing...
Avatar 3:10pm StringOFperils:

Or...that would be an interesting.aggravating regular segment, just reading the penultimate chapters of books.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've been slowly whipping my record collection into shape - there are sections that I have no idea what's what, so this is the result of rediscovering some things :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - God, can you imagine that?? Lol!!
"But ... what happens NEXT??" ;-)
Avatar 3:12pm StringOFperils:

Yes. I like it. And never tell anyone that it's happening. Ha ha ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Linda Lee:

aren't we lucky! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I should do a tie-in with Amazon or something. Read the first and the penultimate chapters of books to drum up sales ;-)
Avatar 3:15pm StringOFperils:

Don't give them ideas. They'll start marketing all of it by the ultimate chapters. 'First part's free!'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oof. No. Good save there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm still noodling with the idea of doing some Facebook Live readings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Linda Lee:

something about the tone of all Larson's music. really spectacular.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's gorgeous, isn't it? I have a shopping list ready for some more :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I believe - although don't quote me - that Sonoton was/is a French library label.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Linda Lee:

it really is.
& reading live is a thoroughly fine idea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'll have to remember not to burp or swear in the middle of things - no editing for a live read ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Linda Lee:

haha! practice :-)
actually thinking i'll love it just like the live music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I usually record this at about 2am because it's nice and quiet, but there's always one stray motorcycle that goes roaring past.
Cue me shouting "ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING?" lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Linda Lee:

advice from watching other readings: use the best mic you can!
Avatar 3:22pm StringOFperils:

Interesting area to explore: the possibility of live media events streamed to willing receivers...audio, visual, etc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Linda Lee:

sure, i'd sit & do that myself! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've had a fabulous time doing the Facebook Live DJing - hopefully another one coming soon :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Linda Lee:

may i please just come live in this recording? just abandon my entire gig & become these vibes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - you're more than welcome! I shall supply the tea and cakes :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Linda Lee:

brilliant!! honestly, so done with the battling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Linda Lee:

thank you! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The record companies are starting to loosen their muting grip - so the DJing is getting easier to do on Facebook Live now.
Avatar 3:26pm StringOFperils:

Hadn't considered that. I WAS thinking that people have learned to congregate digitally on a much broader scale all of a sudden, so that new effect creates new possibilities
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I just finished listening to Graham Norton narrate his first novel on Audible, and it's interesting to me that I can hear pages and belch stifling. I'm not alone ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - every facebook Live I've done so far comes with copyright warnings, and we've all had to restart broadcasts, and then the archive video gets muted.
Avatar 3:28pm Martinibomb:

i got a super tiny computer a raspberry pi yesterday ($35) and I've got it all setup to DJ with so been geeking around with it - got mixxx running on it and it will stream too! crazy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi MB! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Linda Lee:

super sensitive mic, no page or belch filter.
we'll never be androids. forget about tech perfection. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I do love reading out loud :-) I used to read in secondary school to the younger kids, so I started early ;-)
I'm definitely looking into books for the blind and organisations like that, but need to find some more projects :-)
Avatar 3:32pm StringOFperils:

Digital copyright and royalties must be navigable by Facebook; they'd stand to lose if their video platform was of no use to DJs etc...so maybe they're ironing it out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If anyone needs some voiceover work, let me know ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Linda Lee:

you've got the greatest reading voice, GG. it's always .. just the thing.
Avatar 3:33pm StringOFperils:

True! An audiobook read by you would work very well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - thank you :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Linda Lee:

being read to is really a great thing. i've forgotten! used to help my soul mate with his work, being read to. i thought i was working! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - they're slowly loosening up, which is good :-)
Avatar 3:34pm StringOFperils:

And smart devices. You could be the GPS. Ha ha ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

"Turn right here ... and buy me some cake" ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Linda Lee:

he'd read an entire novel to me in an afternoon & evening. no problems sitting still for it.
Avatar 3:35pm StringOFperils:

Ha ha ha ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Storytime is such a comforting thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've had a couple of people apologise to me for falling asleep in the middle of Modernists ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Linda Lee:

speaking of cake. had a friend deliver some boxed meals for me today plus some dry goods donated from our local store. did anyone think of any desert? no! they did not!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Linda Lee:

well, folks are so deeply exhausted they'l fall out as soon as they give themselves permission.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

No dessert??? That's just rude
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Linda Lee:

it's not HWM. it's the rest of their lives.
yes! isn't it! just because i'm helped means i shouldn't have treats?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Listener Bob in PGH:

@DJGG 3:32 - Have you looked into librivox.org ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Bob! Yep - that's the one I've been looking at :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Linda Lee:

and: am i mad to leave a community where people bring me food? that is the question.
Avatar 3:38pm Martinibomb:

there are some good readers on librivox --
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - but think of other communities where you'd get dessert as well ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

They quite literally got his goat. LOL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Listener Bob in PGH:

Excellent! I think it would be a great fit for you! I thought about doing one, but I'm not really a big fan of my voice. When I listen to recordings of myself I realize that I have a lot of enunciation quirks. And a bit of a Southern Californian drawl, or so I've been told.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Linda Lee:

ho! thank you love! perfect response! :-)
i'm told, in so many words, that the caring here only goes so far. not just regarding desert, either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Bob - aha! Is that what the PGH refers to?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Rich in Washington:

This is brilliant, GeorgyGirl! My favorite pkd novel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Rich! Thank you :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Rich in Washington:

Listening on my TV while I tear down my studio for refurbishment.
Avatar 3:45pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

Hi everyone! Archive job it is then - guess who had a nap that lasted too long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Rich in Washington:

It's at that ugly, 'I don't know what I'm doing' phase, so this is soothing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I've just got a new digital radio for the kitchen which has Bluetooth and so I can play WFMU while I cook. Very excited about that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Listener Bob in PGH:

I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania now (that's what the PGH stands for). Pittsburghers have a VERY quirky accent and way of speaking and I fear I'm picking that up in addition to my native accent and idiosyncratic issues!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I hate the point where you're so far in to refurbing or painting that you can't go back, but you can't see the end of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Linda Lee:

i think we're both there today, Rich! :-)
& yes, the music is good for it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Bob - oh!! I see now :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I did have to concentrate *very* hard whenever I read the parts about his goat. I don't know why but it tickled me for some reason ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I also have absolutely no idea what an "inguinal region" is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Fairytale Meadoew:

how are things in Pittsburgh, Bob? i'm on the lookout for a new community.
Avatar 3:51pm StringOFperils:

inguinal refers to a hernia in the groin area
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - OW!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Fairytale Meadow:

gad! my typing!
Avatar 3:51pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

GG, regarding Phil May's passing, have you done a modernist episode in the past with Pretty Things' library music (Electric Banana)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Photocopy Cha Cha! I'm doing some Pretty Things tracks this Friday on the Flange :-)
Avatar 3:52pm StringOFperils:

Electric Banana gets a lot of regular play on Ichiban stream's Night Owl show
Avatar 3:53pm StringOFperils:

In the land of obscure psyche material
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Gosh! Just two more tracks to go! And Martinibomb is next :-)
www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Listener Bob in PGH:

@ Fairytale Meadoew - Well, it depends on what you are looking for and what your needs are. It's SUPER cheap and has MOST of the amenities of a medium sized US metro. If you are coming from a larger city then living here is easy (not much competition, traffic, etc.). I love it, but for some reason even though it has a lot to offer it never seems to catch on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One more track after this, my lovely Modernists. Thank you all so much for listening and chatting :-)
I've had a blast as always!
Part Two next week ;-)
And I'll be back on Friday for the Flange!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Fairytale Meadow:

not yet. i see many places like that now that i'm looking. :-)
thank you.
Avatar 3:56pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@3:51 StringOFperils: mine had a pinched nerve involved. I was quite out of it during the operation, but I heard my voice saying "that hurts" re: the said nerve.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Fairytale Meadow:

i protest!! show too short!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's whizzed by hasn't it?
Avatar 3:57pm StringOFperils:

Thank you DJGG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Fairytale Meadow:

much too!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you and huge hugs to each and every one of you :-) <3
Avatar 3:58pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@3:57 Fairytale Meadow: too short especially for me, as I was having a nap for the first 20 minutes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Fairytale Meadow:

thankfully: archives! though i do like a live chat. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I like the live chatting too :-)
Avatar 3:59pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@3:58 Fairytale Meadow: exactly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Fairytale Meadow:

realized recently this is what i miss archiving. (which feels a bit like spelunking.)
Avatar 4:00pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

thanks gg!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Jan Turkenburg:

Thank you, Georgy. That was lovely!
