what a voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I absolutely LOVE The Carpenters :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - She really does have one of the greatest voices ever :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've got some goodies lined up for you all today :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

As far as I'm concerned this is the greatest guitar solo of all time

hey zivilars! heyyy rich!
Avatar 5:04pm solo mon:

and helllOOOooooOOOO to you GG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm zivilars:

@DJ GG: Definitely one of the greatest voices! And the guitar solo is fantastic indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - I listened to that several times today rather loud ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I found tons of artists more on the soul spectrum who had done covers of The Carpenters, which intrigued me.
Avatar 5:10pm solo mon:

i was really into the"if i were a carpenter" compilation from the 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm zivilars:

did anybody here see the very strange todd haynes carpenters movie - the life of caren carpenter acted out with dolls? it was a VERY long time ago that I watched it and I can't really remember if if was good or just weird ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - I had a copy of that back in the day!! :-) I remember the cartoon cover for that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm zivilars:

damn, these isolated tracks always get me - simply amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - Used to have a copy which I stupidly loaned to someone. It's really good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Richard Carpenter slapped a cease and desist order on the film - not because of the content, but because Todd Haynes didn't ask permission to sue the songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm zivilars:

if i remember correctly it was banned because of the unlicensed use of Carpenters music. Have to watch it again sometimes, I'm sure it's somewhere digitally in the Internet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There you go :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm zivilars:

@DJ GG: :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Sue the songs?? Freudian slip there ;-)
Avatar 5:16pm solo mon:

Hey Ziv! The director Todd H is actually my mentor :-) I know lots about the film !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - Of course, yes!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - Was the issue the music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm zivilars:

solo mon: Wow, really? That's awesome! Especially loved "Far From Heaven"!
Avatar 5:18pm solo mon:

He actually is the one who accidentally alerted the carpenter family of its existence, naively, he tried to get permission. They would have probably not found out about it if hed kept his mouth shut (like john waters)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ... The Streisand Effect at work!! Oh dear :-(
Avatar 5:20pm solo mon:

Yes Ziv I feel like a pretty lucky person!!- he is one of my fav directors ever. He is actually Executive producing my latest project (not released yet)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - So thrilled that's happening :-) So proud of you! <3
Avatar 5:20pm StringOFperils:

Hello GG, Karen and David
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

SOp!! Hello! :-)
Avatar 5:21pm solo mon:

Far from Heaven is so goood! Also love SAFE and Carol so so much> but the carpenters one is my favorite cuz its soooooooo weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm zivilars:

so if there was willingness (and the actual money) to pay the royality, the Carpenter family would have been fine with the movie (art-wise)? My memories of the movie are really, really dark, but the bulimia part e.g. was quite heavy, I guess?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - You completely made my morning with your email :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - Didn't he gradually shave the plastic off the doll as the movie progressed?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm zivilars:

@solo mon: Please let us know when your latest project is out, would love to see it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Rich in Washington:

The Carpenters are such a childhood memory.
I feel like I'm floating in warm cream of chicken soup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This Crescent Moon track is SO beautiful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Excellent! That's exactly the vibe I was going for :-)
Avatar 5:23pm solo mon:

No. Richard did not like the film, allegedly. He was not out of the closet and it did insinuate some things. Also even though richard was gay, I don't think he understood camp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - Wait ... Richard Carpenter came out??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm zivilars:

@solo mon: Interesting to know, thanks for the insight infos!
Avatar 5:24pm StringOFperils:

@GG> Thanks, re. the email. Much cumbersome stuff to kill off on that thing. Just wanted to reassure you that it was...you know...happening. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

When did Richard Carpenter come out?? Have I been living under a rock?? Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - I love what you're doing!! Keep it coming :-)
Avatar 5:25pm solo mon:

Yes carved doll faces, happens! I did see a restored version (by the sundance institute) recently and it looked beautiful I was taken a back at the gorgeousness of the whole thing. Its like a proto far from heaven.
Avatar 5:25pm StringOFperils:

Heh, just realized I called Richard, David, up there...brain melt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow. I haven't seen Superstar in many years. I need to check it out again ASAP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My brain is melting ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm zivilars:

Just quickly watched a Karen drum solo number in a TV special on YouTube ... so great.
Avatar 5:26pm solo mon:

haha I meant to say "might be gay"
Avatar 5:27pm solo mon:

hahaha im gonna get sued by the carpenters now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - See how happy she is as well :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - Lol! How am I going to put my brain back together now? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm zivilars:

@DJ GG: She really is!
Avatar 5:28pm StringOFperils:

I need to see The Karen Carpenter Story. I really like the other things I've seen by Todd Haynes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - It's a good film!! Doesn't pull any punches :-)
Avatar 5:29pm solo mon:

I wish there were better copies of superstar just laying about, but they literally dont exist except for the one restored exhibition copy, which cannot be publicly shown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - The copy I had was a rip of a rip of a rip so it was a tad "snowy"
Avatar 5:31pm StringOFperils:

Any interview-like video I've seen with Richard Carpenter seems quite strange to me. He seems so reticent. Sort of 'not there'. He seems spooky to me; I guess he just wants to stay out of public life or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Not quite as bad as the VHS copies I've watched that are like looking through a potato, mind you! Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - There's something off about Richard Carpenter. Not entirely sure what.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Rich in Washington:

I'm trying to see if it's on Ubu Web but it seems to be having server issues - temporarily, I hope.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

When I was researching the show and I heard the Berry Lipman track I said "THIS!" very loudly ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I think it's on YouTube still
Avatar 5:35pm Feldpausch:

Hiya DJ GG! Hi friends :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - Just glorious :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Rich in Washington:

i just read the credits for the album and Herb Alpert is credited with 'shakers'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - And "movers" ;-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - Oh God! Absolutely!!
Avatar 5:46pm StringOFperils:

I think that's the Richard effect...bit of a Brian Wilson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - What a mind tho! To be able to envision that in your head :-) I'm always fascinated by artists who have that kind of vision. They're all usually mad a as a box of frogs, mind ;-)
Avatar 5:48pm StringOFperils:

Ha ha ha. I like that expression.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - ;-) Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - My stepfather's favourite expression was "useless as a chocolate teapot". that's another good one :-)
Avatar 5:49pm StringOFperils:

Hah! I use 'useless as a screen-door on a submarine' now and then
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - I've never heard that one before!! LOL!! That's brilliant :-)
Avatar 5:51pm Mr Fab:

Hey hey, listening while I run around doin stuff, but just had to pop in and say, ”there’s a Herb Alpert documentary?!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - Hello!!! There is indeed :-) I think it's available on streaming services? I watched the premiere on his Facebook page and it's really good :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - Ohhh . The potato camera. Yikes.
Avatar 6:02pm solo mon:

But the name reminds me of the old carpet store "Carpeteria" haha
Avatar 6:04pm StringOFperils:

Do you pronounce Carpenteria in the English way, or the Spanish way?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I wonder if the "teria" bit means anything? Like, you have cafes and then you have cafeterias. (This is why I have insomnia)
Avatar 6:05pm solo mon:

SOP, I think i put accent on the I in Ria
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - Los CarpentAYYYYrias!!! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Carpinteria was the name, it is a small town in California, which was part of the humor. Johnny Kat played Richard and David Hawkins WAS Karen!
Avatar 6:05pm StringOFperils:

Like Gonorrhea?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mx Granny - I wish The Carpenters had come from Carpinteria :-)

Diarrhea or diarrhoea ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Also, Bob Dylan is a Carpenter if you think about it ;-)

@NSK - Oo! Send me links :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm notsoKWYET:

One of the things that kept me up last night was thinking about Karen Carpenter's drumming... the narrative has always been that her record company kept her as a vocalist and just let her indulge a bit with drums but that truly wanted to be a drummer... When I watched the Herb Alpert doc he really casually mentions she just wasn't good enough to be a session drummer.... very very few people have the gift to be high level studio musicians and it is possible karen just wasn't... lots of our best drummers aren't great studio people
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm notsoKWYET:

and I am aware buddy rich said Karen was great... there is no doubt about that... but even Buddy isn't a great studio drummer lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK - I always thought she wanted to be a band drummer tho rather than a studio one?
Avatar 6:25pm StringOFperils:

Nobody wants a visionary backing them up, and no poet wants to be a great technician. Some people can do both, like Leon Russell up there, but not most. I think most folks want to do one thing, or the other, but not both.
Avatar 6:25pm StringOFperils:

Jimmy Page also comes to mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Rich in Washington:

I don't think I have ever heard another song by The New Vaudeville Band other than their hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I remember our excitement at school finding out that Karen was a drummer :-) *A girl drummer*. That was revolutionary for us :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - The album blew my mind :-) I saw them in concert years ago and they were a ton of fun :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - Little Jim and Big Jim :-)
Avatar 6:27pm StringOFperils:

I can't think of a single person who could or can sing with such nuanced sensitivity while playing drums. Levon Helm could really belt it out, but what Karen Carpenter could do, that was very unusual.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Which makes you wonder how tall Big Jim Sullivan was considering how tall Jimmy Page is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - Agreed :-)
  6:29pm Martinibomb:

listening - yard work! yay
Avatar 6:29pm solo mon:

I cant chew gum and tie my shoe at the same time, so in awe of people who can play music and sing. Drumming/ singing is the hardest combo in my opinion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm struggling to think of many great drummers who are also great vocalists. I love Keith Moon, but ... you know. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi MB!! :-) I can listen to you live this week!! Yay!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo - I'm totally the same. I'd just fall over on stage and cry if that was me ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm notsoKWYET:

Right now the hip-hop artist Anderson Paak is leading the drummer/vocalist thing I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK - Oh!!! I shall seek them out then :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It makes me really sad that I can't listen to as many shows live as I want to - I'm either working or asleep :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK - Coxwell and Danworth sound like really awesome early 70s detectives :-)
Avatar 6:40pm StringOFperils:

Hah, you're kidding. I'm ridiculously near you. Sackville and Carlton, in Cabbagetown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm notsoKWYET:

hahah hell yea! I just moved from the village to east end --- I was in the Village for almost a decade
Avatar 6:40pm StringOFperils:

I could walk to you in about 20 minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK and @SOp - Pictures!!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm notsoKWYET:

it's so weird when I have WFMU experiences here in Toronto
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm notsoKWYET:

i was listening to Sophisticated Boom Boom last wednesday and someone donated from Toronto
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - maybe SOp was the chap you saw in the WFMU t-shirt? How wild would that be? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm notsoKWYET:

I was wondering!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK - That comment was for you. Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm notsoKWYET:

Do you ever wear a WFMU shirt and go to Loblaws on Leslie lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I will scream if that turns out to be true :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm notsoKWYET:

SOP --- one time i was on the bus in etobicoke and this guy had a massive 45 box... I started talking to him and it turned he knew GG and is a good friend of Otis's... It was so crazy... I went to a show at the Mod club and someone came up to talk to me about my WFMU shirt lol
Avatar 6:44pm StringOFperils:

Seem to be quite a few WFMU listeners here, of various ages, backgrounds, and tastes. The T-shirt wasn't me. Actually, I donated, but opted out of the swag, because Helene might be uncomfortable with me donating cash that I kinda don't have much of these days.
Avatar 6:44pm StringOFperils:

A covert donation, as it were.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Chris saw someone in Brighton in a WFMU t-shirt :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Stanley:

Ha ha Toronto-ites. WFMU coincidences abound. I'm temporarily living in a tiny village in Scotland (pop 256) and I bumped into another listener on the message boards who also lives here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Stanley - Really??? That IS wild!!! :-)
Avatar 6:46pm StringOFperils:

I always suspected WFMU had world domination up its sleeve.
Avatar 6:46pm spacebrother:

Listening. Show ready!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Greg!!! There's a message for you at the end of the show :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm notsoKWYET:

@SOP --- I used to ALWAYS go to Chew Chew's back before it went downhill --- not sure if they recovered
Avatar 6:48pm StringOFperils:

I used to buy weed at that illegal dispensary that was next door.
Avatar 6:49pm StringOFperils:

Another covert donation. :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - Your secret is safe with us :-)
