"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.)

So odd -- usually the stream is way behind the FM signal, but after I said hi, I went into the bathroom and put on the boombox there, and it was Todd's sign-off. Some sort of Christmas-based temporal anomaly? Rain slowing down the FM waves? Barn distortion?

So if humans create mini black holes that suck up all we know by smashing particles - there's FMUvians to take partial credit. Figgers.
Avatar 🎸 9:41am
YETI BOB:

RR: If we managed to make a mini black hole (which is unlikely) it wouldn't suck up everything. At least not right away. It would silently sink to the center of the earth and sit there for centuries. There could be some there already, actually.
