Hi David. I can walk the path a while.
Avatar 12:03pm βrian:

We made pandemic pizza last night. A bit heavy on the toppings, but quite yummy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm chresti:

Hi David and fred, spodi, Brian, Sylvia, Yeti, TDK60, Continentals...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm David Dichelle:

Hey there TDK and Chresti!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm YETI BOB:

I'm going to try to guess what random country we are visiting today (*runs randomizer program*) - Is it "Saint Kitts and Nevis" ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Carmichael:

Heya David and winners. Digging the Gypsy Jazz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm David Dichelle:

I can neither confirm nor deny that guess, Yeti Bob. It is a great guess, in any case.
Avatar 12:06pm TDK60:

Martinique?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm David Dichelle:

Ahoy there, Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm David Dichelle:

No spoilers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm David Dichelle:

I didn't mean to imply proximity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm YETI BOB:

:) I didn't even know "St Kitts and Nevis" was a country. Just having a little fun, don't want to spoil anything!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm Carmichael:

We're having pizza tonight. Surprised I could wait 24 hours, after all the pizza talk yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm David Dichelle:

I don't mean to discourage guessing, just won't give it away too soon ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Carmichael:

Or it could be a region, like Roma or Basque country.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm David Dichelle:

I'm using the full list of countries and territories with Internet suffixes. Well minus uninhabited rocks and the like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm WR:

Now with the pizza talk again?!?! I had nearly forgot and now I'm jonesing for some. Only a barely decent pizza available within reach for me. Hmmmm. May have to venture out later today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm David Dichelle:

Hey WR - what's all this about pizza?
  12:12pm northguineahills:

David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm WR:

Uninhabited rocks have an internet suffix?

RE: pizza, ask Carmichael, he restarted it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm YETI BOB:

The ISO 3166-1 database does not include Basque or Roma territories (too bad)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm David Dichelle:

Hey NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Carmichael:

This is obviously Welsh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm David Dichelle:

WR: A surprising large number of them do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm David Dichelle:

YB: Well the list gives me around 230 viable candidates to start with at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm chresti:

We have a friend who lived on St. Kitts, that's when I learned about it.
Avatar 12:17pm TDK60:

I found out about St. Kitts via a Taj Mahal tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm chresti:

St. Kitts got hit hard by one of the hurricanes (I lost track), that blasted through that region a few years ago.
Avatar 12:23pm βrian:

"Is that a suffix in your pocket ...?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm YETI BOB:

From the 'pedia: "Residents call themselves Kittitians." (not Kittens!)
Avatar 12:24pm βrian:

We take our cat to the Kittitian to have his claws done.
Avatar 12:25pm TDK60:

Thanks for the Silly Wizard. Highlanders I think, so, careful.

Hello Riders!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm David Dichelle:

Hello Dr. J.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm David Dichelle:

Here's one version of the list I mean: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 12:26pm dougseidel:

speaking of Vanuatu - my wife was working in Vanuatu off and on for the past couple years. She says it and the people there are beautiful. Very unique place on the planet it seams.
Avatar 12:26pm TDK60:

Th suffix for Antarctica is AQ.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm YETI BOB:

@WR: For example .bv is reserved for the (uninhabited) Bouvet Island. But .bv is not open for registration. So it's sort of like an uninhabited rock of a domain... en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm David Dichelle:

Hey Doug, it does sound like a beautiful place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm YETI BOB:

@WR: Don't ask how I know this. Clearly I have way too much time on my hands.
Avatar 12:30pm TDK60:

Switzerland is CH.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm David Dichelle:

You are absolutely correct, Yeti Bob, that is one of the places I had to remove from the list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm YETI BOB:

@TDK: Yup, from "Confoederatio Helvetica"
Avatar 12:32pm TDK60:

ah Yeti, makes sense. How'd ya find the time to know that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm YETI BOB:

@TDK: I've spent a good bit of time in Switzerland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm David Dichelle:

YB: Which part of CH?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm YETI BOB:

I was working at CERN, so mostly the Geneva region. But I've also traveled to Zürich and Basel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm WR:

Bouvet Island, natively know as "Bouvetøya", one of three "dependencies " claimed by Norway near Antarctica. Ok, I'm supposed to be working. Back to listening.

PS; I had forgotten about Silly Wizard, never acquiredany of their recordings though know them well through a long ago roommate being a fan. First pizza and now Silly Wizard. Too many distractions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm David Dichelle:

Ah, interesting, I spent a year in Geneva as well, knew a few people from CERN.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm YETI BOB:

I miss those days! I haven't traveled outside the USA in a very long time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Cmurtha:

Hello Everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm David Dichelle:

Hey there Cmurtha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm YETI BOB:

@DD: US citizens can't get permanent jobs at CERN because of how it's funded. So I could only be a "visiting worker". If I could have gotten a permanent job I probably would have emigrated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Carmichael:

I've seen Silly Wizard and The Old Blind Dogs, back in the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Stanley:

You're a bit of a wizard, yourself, David.
And good evening all. Greetings from the borders of Scotland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm YETI BOB:

Hah, I never saw "Alien vs Predator" but apparently it's set on Bouvet Island!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm David Dichelle:

Good evening, Stanley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm kuba:

good evening people and david! we just got negative test results... so cheers?
Avatar 12:48pm Really Lisa:

Hi David and everyone. Late; pesky meetings. Hope there's a window seat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm David Dichelle:

Hey Kuba - glad to hear you're okay!
Avatar 12:49pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

Hi Really Lisa, you can sit next to me, I prefer the aisle :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm David Dichelle:

Lisa, your seat with a view is permanently reserved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm YETI BOB:

good news kuba! i'm anxiously waiting for a test result myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm David Dichelle:

And happens to be right next to Sylvia!
Avatar 12:50pm Really Lisa:

Thanks Sylvia and David :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Carmichael:

This sounds like Stereolab!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm YETI BOB:

@Carmicheal: Yeah I was thinking that too. And I tend to like bands that sound like the 'Lab - do you know Kikagaku Moyo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm YETI BOB:

@Carmichael (sorry for the spelling)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm kuba:

yeti bob, i'm crossing all my fingers. stay safe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm David Dichelle:

How long do the results take?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm YETI BOB:

They said 24-48 hours - I got tested yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm kuba:

yeah, ours took ~24
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm YETI BOB:

It's an odd situation - a friend of mine who I saw last week is now in the hospital with a 103 degree fever. And I'm feeling sick so I assumed he had COVID and passed it to me. But he just got a negative test result, so I don't know what's going on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm David Dichelle:

Yes, it plays with one's head as well. Hope your friend recovers soon, in any case.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm YETI BOB:

Thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm David Dichelle:

And you as well, of course!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm YETI BOB:

I really appreciate the well-wishes, thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Handy Haversack:

Hello, David and Straphangers! Sorry to hop on late -- I was out defending against parking cops and chatting with neighbors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Bas NL:

Hello from work place!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm David Dichelle:

Greetings Handy and Bas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Handy Haversack:

Dang it! I missed "Glasgow Peggy"?! And more Silly Wizard!

Och. Aye.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm David Dichelle:

Not to worry, they will make their way to the silly archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Carmichael:

@Yeti Bob, i know them now. Thanks, I'll check them out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm chris in the redwoods:

greetings, David and all. also horribly late. nice to be here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Handy Haversack:

Carm and YB, I was about to suggest another band that is 'Lab-influenced -- and then saw we were already talking about Melenas! Love that album -- they are from Pamplona!

Hey, Chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Carmichael:

Clicky starred, Handy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm David Dichelle:

Welcome, Chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Handy Haversack:

OK, I'm gonna make my lunch salad. Try not to play *too* much Silly Wizard while I'm away!
Avatar 1:11pm TDK60:

High Tide; I have an image of lots of amps stacked high!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm David Dichelle:

I promise no more Silly Wizard today (I think).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm Stanley:

This track is terrific.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Carmichael:

These guys rawk!
Avatar 1:13pm TDK60:

Stanley, they surely knew how to get the tube amps warm, and get an audience's lighters lit, sky high.
Avatar 1:15pm TDK60:

The kind of band back then you wouldn't have wanted to open up for you. Hee..
Avatar 1:16pm βrian:

What are these "parking cops," of whom you speak? I do not know them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm YETI BOB:

@Carmichael: All their records are good, but "Masana Temples" (the most recent one) is a standout - I play that record A LOT.
Avatar 1:18pm TDK60:

Brian, Handy's making lunch. NYC has traffic ticket cops, a separate part of the police. Some activists are trying to take that duty away from the NYPD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm David Dichelle:

Thanks for the recommendation, YB!
Avatar 1:19pm βrian:

What would happen if there were no such parking cops, practically speaking?
Avatar 1:21pm TDK60:

Society would fall apart fast Brian, of course. (In NYC many South Asians have jobs as ticketkops.)
Avatar 1:23pm TDK60:

..as far as I know, the NYC ticket cops are unarmed.
Avatar 1:26pm βrian:

In Madison, parking patrols occur only in certain zones. We're pretty close to downtown but haven't seen them, even though there's a city-wide reg prohibiting parking for more than 48 hours on a given street.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm YETI BOB:

@βrian: I think it's a revenue thing, the city makes money from issuing tickets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm YETI BOB:

NYC seems like a difficult place to have a car. When I lived there I didn't own one. Here in Chicago the parking rules are a little less Byzantine - none of that "alternate side" stuff. Just street cleaning & snow removal.
Avatar 1:28pm TDK60:

Yeah Yeti. I'm in NYC and want no car here.
Avatar 1:28pm βrian:

@YB: And lawn chairs to preserve parking spots, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm YETI BOB:

Dibs!
  1:29pm poor lost owl:

oy vey - the yiddish rammstein
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Handy Haversack:

Dibs is not a legal precedence in NYC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm David Dichelle:

Poor lost owl: You knew they were out there somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm YETI BOB:

No, it would never fly in NYC. Dibs is a very Chicago thing. Here's some great pics - note you don't have to use lawn-chairs, you could use, say, vacuum cleaners, or statues of Jesus and Mary - www.thrillist.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm YETI BOB:

Also we do great things like U-turn into a parking space on the other side of the street, that I don't think you'd get away with in NYC.
Avatar 1:33pm βrian:

Enforcement for declared snow emergencies is much more aggressive. They've realized that if they can't plow curb-to-curb, chaos will likely ensue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Handy Haversack:

I saw a dude in a Rammstein hoodie a few weeks ago ... and didn't quite know how to approach him.
Avatar 1:34pm βrian:

No sea shanties in these parts, but oh, the ice shanties!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm YETI BOB:

@HH: You walk right up to him and shout: "DU! DU HASST MICH!"
Avatar 1:35pm βrian:

"Do you rock out with your umlaut?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm David Dichelle:

YB: I hear that all the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Handy Haversack:

Something told me that he didn't come to Rammstein mainly through Ken's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm David Dichelle:

Fun fact: Till Lindemann of Rammstein is originally from Leipzig.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm David Dichelle:

Or maybe not that fun after all...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm fred:

If there's a Yiddish Rammstein, is there a Yiddish Laibach?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm YETI BOB:

@DD: I was trying to come up with a witty reply, but all I could think of was that box set with 6 dildos modeled after the band members. (Till had the big one)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm David Dichelle:

Maybe one day, Fred!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm David Dichelle:

YB: That really shouldn't surprise me to hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Handy Haversack:

If there were no Yiddish Laibach, we would have to invent one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Handy Haversack:

Those cats have range, it's true!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm David Dichelle:

Not exactly St. Kitts, I admit...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm fred:

I hope we'll be spared schlager...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Handy Haversack:

Any Vanuatu-to-Germany-immigrant tunes? Those could be a lot of fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm David Dichelle:

Fred: I don't mean to play anything I wouldn't.

Einen schönen guten Abend, Dutchtheo und Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Handy Haversack:

Back to the parking cops: TDK60, yes, they are unarmed. Their attitude really seems to be that they don't *want* to give out tickets -- they know it's a racket -- but they will if you are parked on the wrong side of the street during ASP rules. But unlike most cops, they actually know the law and the differences among parking, standing, and stopping. So if someone is sitting in the driver's seat, that car is standing, not parking, and so not ticketable. So it becomes like a mini-block-party these days, with everyone out to wait until they see the cop and then hop in their cars.

Though my Bangladeshi neighbor was telling me he once got a ticket while sitting in his car even though no one else did. He took a picture and called the 311 about it, and that parking cop has never come back to the block.

have been repairing a heater (while doing some (more) inadvertent welding, blowing circuits, troubleshooting the blown fuses, etc.), and unboxing and inspecting a repaired/returned laptop (under warranty (barely)), and settling in to do some work. took a while, but glad i was able to listen along most of the time (except for when the wifi was out from blown fuses and troubleshooting) -- very enjoyable ride :)

Hey spodi! He, he.. i had a blown fuse today too! Dodgy battery charger.
Avatar 2:25pm Jeff Moore:

So wait, have we been experiencing German Irish music? As played at Die Blarney Stone Pub [I'm sure I have the article wrong]. I mean, especially that Wacholder piece...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm spodiodi:

glad we both made it through that, Bas :) -- this was the second time i've had to repair the heater (the cord just wore out after several years. the thing is old as mud)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm David Dichelle:

Hey Jeff, funny you should say that. This (Und Nichts Nachher) was actually recorded at the Irish pub around the corner from me.
Avatar 2:27pm Jeff Moore:

Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm David Dichelle:

They are mostly traditional German songs, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Bas NL:

Sounds tricky, spodi! I'm an electronics engineer, so blown fuses are my calling.

Hello David & everyone.
Got a belly full of Carbonara.

Good evening, Brian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm YETI BOB:

Just had my weekly project review meeting. I wanted to check in with my colleagues even though I'm sick. Fortunately, they said "Let's keep this short today".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm spodiodi:

coo, Bas.... do you know this joke:

A graduating engineering student: "Four years ago, I couldn't even spell "engineer". Today, I are one!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm spodiodi:

aloha Brian and Jeff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Michael 98145:

aloha, all 🚇
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm spodiodi:

the joke is that many engineering students don't have strong literary skills (and/or at least not English literary skills.) Was told to me by my friend's mother, on a rafting/camping trip, with a bunch of engineers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm spodiodi:

aloha, Michael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Handy Haversack:

Hey, spodi!

David love the photograph, puts me in mind of Alfred Sisley & Camille Pissarro.

Hello spodiodi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm Bas NL:

Ha, ha! I used to grade engineering trainee reports.. writing is a 'challenge' to out trade it seems. Good laugh though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm spodiodi:

that is a nice ohoto... very tranquil
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm spodiodi:

:) Bas cool
Avatar 2:36pm Brian in UK:

The road goes on forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Handy Haversack:

spodi, one kid I graduated HS with went to Rice to study engineering. He said he was going to and then actually DID go into class late in his last year wearing a striped hat to say that while all this math they were studying was interesting, he really wanted to know when they were going to start driving trains!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Carmichael:

@Bas, that's the joke about higher education. one knows more and more about less and less, until you learn absolutely everything about absolutely nothing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Carmichael:

BTW, I have a Master's degree ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm YETI BOB:

"Das Wattenmeer" is the Wadden Sea, in English. But I don't think "Wadden" is an English word.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm spodiodi:

hahah, Handy -- another good one. I'm familiar with the "Choo-choo!" self-deprecating joke-reply to someone announcing that they are an engineer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Handy Haversack:

It's what you stuff in a musket, YB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm YETI BOB:

I love the Comedian Harmonists! Picked up a few of these CDs when I was living in Hamburg.

Thanks, Brian - very recent photo from one of the local bike routes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm YETI BOB:

Learned about them from Lester Bangs, who was a fan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Bas NL:

The dutch call our end 'De Waddenzee'. I did a lot of work there.. fantastic area.

die Harmonisten! Krieg schon Gänsehaut!

Aloha up there, Michael!
Avatar 2:43pm Really Lisa:

Now this works me. Recently began watching Babylon Berlin, nearing the last few episodes of season 1. Right about this time frame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm YETI BOB:

Lester Bangs was asked to write liner notes for a reissue of the Harmonists, but it was not used. You can read it here: www.nytimes.com...
  2:44pm Funky16Corners:

I love these guys. I have a boxed set I picked up years ago.

David is it a former railroad?

Theo: Actually just behind a river and embankment (Hochdeich).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Handy Haversack:

I was just reading a review of an English novel from 1903 set in the Wadden Sea, The Riddle of the Sands. Seems like it could be worth a read -- I'm a sucker for books with maps.
Avatar 2:50pm Sem:

Hello, David, and all aboard, I must be going, Catch up w/ you all in the archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Bas NL:

The Wadden Sea is really tricky to navigate. I spent many nights stranded on ships caught on sand banks by low tide.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm David Dichelle:

Hello you must be going, Sem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Handy Haversack:

Bas, that's mainly what the book is about! That and spying.

The beginning sounded like the Laughing Policeman.

when you think I studied German for 5 years (middle and high school), and I can't even have a conversation about the weather
Avatar 2:56pm Really Lisa:

Thank you, David. Großartige show.
Frieden, alle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Stanley:

Thanks David for another good program. Though I was a bit disappointed see a lack of popular Bierhalle 'entertainment' included. So to make up, I'll just leave you this (and make a mad dash for the door. Byeeee!)

Sylvia: I took German from middle school through college. But it didn't really "click" until I lived there for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Handy Haversack:

Well, the book *is* from 107 years ago ...

Thanks, David! This was a joy. Wish I had got to hear the whole thing. You step outside to avoid getting a ticket, you miss Silly Wizard. A story as old as time.

Be well, all. See youse soon.
