"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

  9:11am JakeGould:

One trend I have noticed on WFMU and around social media as of late: People defending “uncool” music and art… So far my count of those defenses includes: Hall & Oates, Eddie Money and even Eddie Murphy’s pop music output.

It’s like everyone is saying, “I’m stuck at home, life sucks but dammit I can’t hide my feels on these tracks/artists!”

Also, I think “Dirty Laundry” was the first track I ever requested a DJ play back when it was hot on WNEW here in NYC. So terrifying to call up a radio station and ask for something and then getting it.

David, Kate was going to have a gig tonight a little ways out of the city in Croton, so we're missing that. But things are OK. Some physical labor coming up tomorrow might have us back on the water soon, which is cool. Gonna try to play some remote poker tonight with friends and see how it goes -- might have to miss part of Sheila's show for it!

modular synth is a lot more fun to play than it is to listen to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26am WoodsOfNH:

@p20 I tried to dig into max/msp but man, the learning curve is nearly vertical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am p20:

WoodsOfNH: Synth software is hard to learn. But analog modular is just plugging in wires. It's about as hard to learn as LEGO
  9:28am JakeGould:

@p20: I hate the “interfaces” on synth apps. Audio apps have the worst interfaces ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am p20:

@JakeGould: Agree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am WoodsOfNH:

@p20 Yeah. I got to play with a mini-Moog one time. That was fun, even if I had no idea what I was doing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am p20:

@Woods: I have a background in math and signal processing so the Max/MSP stuff sort of makes sense to me. But I'd never say it was "fun" in the same way a MiniMoog is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am WoodsOfNH:

@JakeGould Yep. I recently started playing around with a synth programming environment called 'Chuck.' Super-powerful and all text. Right up my alley (with a background in software)
  9:31am JakeGould:

When this Coronavirus stuff started, Moog made their basic Moog keyboard app available for free on iOS. Loading it onto my iPhone or iPad mini just makes me get stressed and it should be a simple app… And I work with and develop software myself!

@WoodsofNH: Whoa! Sounds cool. I find the command line to be the great equalizer. chuck.cs.princeton.edu
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am p20:

(installs Chuck)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33am p20:

saw Bob Ostertag perform with Fred Frith at the Public Access Synthesizer Space sometime in 198x. Literally changed my life, turned my interests from (post)punk to pure experimental.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34am p20:

ostertag had this rig using 3 reel-to-reel tape machines with variable speed. tape ran from machine A through machine B to machine C. In between the machines, the tape ran through gold rings suspended by helium balloons
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35am p20:

frith was banging away on his tabletop instruments and ostertag was manipulating the tapes. as the speed changed, the amount of slack between the machines changed and the balloons went up and down. and PASS had very high ceilings
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35am steveo:

quick, matt, hit the cough button
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35am p20:

probably 35 years ago but i remember it like yesterday. one of the best things i ever saw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35am WoodsOfNH:

@p20 There's an IDE for Chuck called miniAudicle. I sort of hate environments like that but it's useful to browse through all of the Chuck features, modules, etc.

Out 'em, Jake. They shouldn't be throwing out good food. They should give it to a food bank or something similar.

people who throw out good food should be thrown out.

Weak Signal is coming on strong! At first I thought it was a cut from the new "X" record, which I have not heard but understand it's pretty great.

@common: I’m making my own cafe au lait for coffee. Mainly because I use a 3 cup stovetop espresso maker and it’s the best way to fill a cup with 50% coffee and 50% milk.

@crudbringer fresh sumac! excellent. i’m envious. tabouli with riced cauliflower is a nice change. also make it with quinoa.

@common:I've been practicing the Eat Tomorrow Diet for a long long time.Not convinced a person who sits most of the day needs that 2000 cals or even a busy person really.

my neighbor offered me 2 "family-sized" frozen meals over the weekend. one mac & cheese and something with chicken. i said i don't want them but i know people who would. then they said they have tons of canned chick peas
- i'll eat that! they were going to throw it out.

@Carmichael: Out who and where? I live in NYC. This happens regularly. Me “outting” them is — at best — like saying the sky is blue; at worst makes me seem like the neighborhood rat. It’s simply better to figure out how to get that stuff to good use though other channels. Like organized dumpster diving groups and mutual aid groups and such.

coelcantho:When Roger Waters had a show in Israel,it was next to a Village called Neve Shalom (Peace Oasis),the show was outside where a Chickpea field was.

Thought, this is nice... googled it... dang.... thanks...
  11:53am JakeGould:

Also, I won’t get deeply into how public officials operate outside of the — predominantly — gentrified areas in NYC, but it’s simply better to deal with things on your own constructively rather than be “tagged” as someone making noise but with no way to really affect change.

We had neighbors in our bldg. who left town and asked us to deal with a food shipment. Their parents had subscribed them to one of these "all the ingredients are in the box, just follow the directions" dealies. It was nightmarish. The produce was so bad. Every bit was individually wrapped in plastic. The sauces were just like individual plastic packets of Kikoman, Tabasco, other national brands. And there was so much packaging. We were shocked.

I often feel like a yokel in the actual regular world that I live in.

Wise words, JakeGould. Everyone can do SOMETHING, but no one should do it solely for the attention and/or "drama" involved.

ami i considered growing chick peas one year...then i though that's stupid! i have (had) ~1200 square feet how fast am i going to go through a tiny crop of chick peas?! waste of space.
but i did grow other legumes that i don't consume as much of. beautiful plants, beautiful flowers on them.
  11:57am JakeGould:

@Handy: Those services are amazingly bad and speak to people who have never simply gone, “Hey! I’ll spend $20 on new foods at the supermarket and learn something on my own!” The exact target market is someone’s fretting parents “worried” about their grown adult children not eating well way into their 20s.
