Avatar 12:38pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

Sorry to kick a dead horse in which noöne else seems interested, but that "She's So Mean" and "Tayter Country" also are very similar in the verses, not as much, but _very_ close for some lines, a couple of lines ending in 'tion's in both.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm patrick321:

I have to agree about the Go-Gos doc. I thought it was great and they did not gloss over the ugly parts it def showed the places where the seams came apart.

@(((Murakami Whywolf) I actually had the same thought ! Yes Not just the chorus but the verses too. I smell a lucrative power pop lawsuit!

Hi Pseu and Hooked, let's get hanging!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Mike Sin:

One point about that Go-Go's doc (Pseu, feel free to delete this post if it's way too long or inappropriate):

I tried to be as diplomatic as possible as an all-female band playing the incredibly lucrative rock-industry game of the early 1980s must have been downright demoralizing in many aspects, but… the songwriting disputes? Even as a drummer who has never written a song that appeared on a commercial album, I’ve got to side with the songwriters here. Of course, the songwriters are going to see a lot more cash if those tracks sell in the millions, and why should they not?

If your songs are being marginalized and kept out of the recording sessions, that's one aspect, but… if you’re not writing songs at all, how are you suddenly justified demanding a piece just because the song is now successful?

If a songwriter spent months translating, say, a very personal experience into words and chords and ultimately created a catchy song, and then, say, the drummer suggested a tempo change, placed a very cool and/or dramatic fill between the second chorus and the bridge, or went into a jazzier feel during the ride out, these additions do not mean the drummer wrote part of the song. The drummer just did his or her job as an instrumentalist. He or she did not help “write” the song.

If Jane Wiedlin’s account was indeed true, then her abrupt decision to split the band was understandable, IMHO, of course.

Avatar 12:54pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

I'm autistic enough, and of the right sort—sadism inflicted on me every time I left my house as child may help—that being shut-in hasn't bothered me a bit, but not so autistic that I can't sympathise.

My wife of thirty or forty years (depending on how you count it) is here, she's really all the humanity I need to be around, and we still get-along very well.

But, very honestly, the only thing that's bothered me is that I've maintained not-being-grossly-obese by being very picky about food, and having other people shop for me is routinely frustrating, little things like ordering beef ribs and someone's deciding that pork ribs are the same. (Even before the plague my medical person was afraid I'd end-up in hospital with pneumonia, so I'm behaving halfway to immune-compromised, so not doing my own shopping has seemed sanest.)

HI CHOP SCOTT! miss you... !

can I vent... should I vent or just shut up & enjoy the music idk. what the heck. my friend punched me in the face for no reason yesterday and threw my bike down... carried it to the bike shop cause it's my only mode of transport & come to find the fork's bent & they gotta order a new one. no way to hold the fucktard accountable so Im settling for venting on here but anyway. ok I feel better now Im just gonna shut up and enjoy the music now. thank you Pseu, you are the bomb dot com!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm patrick321:

@Mike Sin have to agree especially re Jane. "I can't even sing one song, after all this time?" That really exposed the internal dynamic of the group at the time.
Avatar 12:58pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

Pseu, I'm sorry that this is troubling to you. I remember how much you used to at least seem to hate giving-out samples, e.g. the story of the man who congratualted his son[?] on being an utter jerk elbowing his way in to get some; could you possibly remember all the unpleasant things you're _not_ doing now for some comfort?

I've tried, every time I've felt despair at unemployment, to remember the horror of one particular break-room….

I would say Lambertville is firmly CENTRAL NJ. Yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Krys O.:

As the shortest person in my family at 5' 2", most folks are taller than me, including my 11 year old great-nephew.

KO, you are a KO.
  2:40pm Listener Robert:

Since Lambertville is almost exactly halfway between the northern and southern limits I just established, it's definitely central NJ, unless New Hope annexes it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm joe mulligan:

on the maps it looks like Ocean County is the hotly debated one. but when it comes to the shore points the line is def at Barnegat Inlet! (L.B.I. vs. Island Beach State Park
  2:40pm Gregg:

@Listener Robert I feel that Monmouth County and points straight west is Central NJ. In my mind Ocean County is South Jersey, Middlesex County is North Jersey
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Mike Sin:

Northern Jersey -- north of route 78
Central Jersey - south of route 78, north of route 195.
South Jersey - south of route 195.

Mike Sin, you are the Voice of Reason.

I've always lived adjacent to NJ. Grew up in Delaware, live in NYC.

Maybe the Phillies/Yankees line on the NY Times baseball fan map can help us point to South Jersey?

  2:46pm scott:

I grew up (arguable) in Louisiana. North and south LA are as different in accent and culture as is possible without a body of water or mountain range to isolate and separate. Same in Jersey?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm ratso:

Mike Sin, definitely the most widely-accepted and easily delineated definition. It's either this or defining by county. Everyone in Somerset and Hunterdon wants to be central, even if we're over the 78 border
  2:47pm Listener Robert:

Gregg, if you eliminate ALL of Middlesex Co., not just what's north of the Raritan, you've squeezed Central NJ uncomfortably small.

Websie congrats!
  2:50pm Listener Robert:

But the eastern part of I-78 goes too far north to consider it a boundary between central and north Jersey. Elizabeth, Central Jersey? Come on.

Joe, do you know Don Ash? I went to high school with him.

PB, you're all jelly.

Ha! @steveo, my mother grew up in Hockessin. I grew up near the brandywine off 202. OH SHIT Dash is my bud!!!!!!

Hope more of the 1.4 million who lost power in NJ have it restored soon.

Thanks Pseu!
  6:40am Dr Playlist:

There's a mistake in the playlist. Secret Powers recorded the song Tangerine, not the other way around.
  9:28am Dr Playlist:

There's another mistake on the playlist; you played the song White Lie Castle by Tan Sleeve, not Geri Mandering.
  9:34am Dr Playlist:

It is true that, on Youtube, the song you played is labelled as Geri Mandering, but it's a mistake. The songs are named correctly on Tan Sleeve's Bandcamp page.
