I remember Ideal, they also made some "reggae" songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:13pm Parq:

Mrs. Parq and I are making our way through the third season of "The Man in the High Castle". I need not elaborate, this cheerful nod to the real-life Berlin is a bit of cognitive dissonance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:16pm David D:

Parq - yes, I can imagine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:24pm northguineahills:

I thought the Ezsett was discontinued from the modern German language 20 years ago, it make it easier for me to spell scheisse....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:26pm David D:

Sorry, NGH, they just "simplified" the rules to make it ß after long vowels, so it's still Scheiße after all. But Schloss instead of Schloß. I know that made it really simple...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:29pm fred:

@ngh: is that the same reform that turned "ö" into "oe"? That change didn't make life really simple for one of my bosses who has documents with both spellings... It's not as if the French administration was aware of these subtleties
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:32pm Carmichael:

i before e, except after c. And y is sometimes a vowel.

Hello, David and fellow passengers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:38pm David D:

Fred: Oe is only used if to replace the ö if it technically difficult to use it. The umlauts/dots are the only spelling regularly used in German-speaking countries. I'm sure the French administration manage the best they can.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:39pm David D:

Hallo Stanley and Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:41pm Parq:

Sem, that Sarah lady from "The Incredibles" is a vowel, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:43pm Carmichael:

Now I'm thinking of my own Anglo Irish pronunciation rules. They're a separate nightmare ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:45pm fred:

@David: they do manage the best they can... or rather care, which isn't much. Probably hoping for a bribe to grease the wheels

Gee, I can't think of any more songs named "Berlin". what are we to do?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:56pm fred:

@David: German has a pretty lame diacritics game. Look at Vietnamese to see how it's done (I'm kind of a Unicode geek)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 4:59pm northguineahills:

FL may be backwards, but at least my town FINALLY got three legal medicinal mj dispensaries. That said, w/in city limits, as long as you're not obnoxious or a dick, the cops here usually ignore any smoking (see it all the time w/in a cop's nose all the time).

mj is the only thing that mostly helps my insomnia, although 1/4 ounce lasts me a year.

totally happy. and soon i won't have to hear about it anymore.

There's Berlin Im Licht (Kurt Weill)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:01pm northguineahills:

Turkish and Romanian have fun diacritic marks as well. There still developing the Kazakhstani latin diacritics, since it's been about a year since they've adopted the Latin alphabet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/16/18 5:04pm Webhamster Henry:

Unicode can combine a whole lot of diacriticals. If you look at a glyph collection, especially for phonetic alphabet use, it's pretty astounding!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:06pm northguineahills:

This is the only unicode that matters to me! en.wikipedia.org...

TMBG! Don't hear them enough Love that band !

This is the best song from Blade Runner that was never in Blade Runner, IMHO.

@ngh: Great, another Kazakh script. As if I didn't have enough trouble googling a Kazakh singer I like a lot thanks to random transliteration
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:13pm David D:

Hello Rich - sounds about right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:13pm Carmichael:

A Social Security scammer just called me and interrupted the FMU phone app. I took the opportunity to alert them to FMU and the pledge drive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:14pm Carmichael:

Flood is a pretty darn good album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:15pm Rich in Washington:

Flood is indeed amazing. I should probably pull it out and listen to it again soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:15pm David D:

Carmichael: That is the perfect response.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:15pm northguineahills:

@fred: third Kazakh script in a century (Arabic/Cyrillic/Latin).

For 15 years, scholars have been requesting Old Hanzi oracle bone script in unicode, but to no avail....

NGH: Oracle bone script would definitely have my vote.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:20pm fred:

@ngh: they're too busy adding emojis (which may actually improve Unicode support beyond the 16-bit range, the way Beyoncé shut up many 7-bit holdovers in the music industry)

I can recognize any Jay-Z song, but I have no clue what Beyonce sounds like.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:40pm David D:

She sounds almost, but not quite, entirely unlike Mekanik Destrüktiw Komandöh.

nice show :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:45pm northguineahills:

wait, there is a Linear A unicode? it hasn't been deciphered yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:46pm fred:

Mekanik Destrüktiw Komandöh kinda reminded me of Khlam
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:49pm fred:

Is that name a nod to Magma?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 5:52pm northguineahills:

Still haven't found a restaurant outside of Japan that makes yakisoba as well as I can (and that includes NYC)

Thanks and good night, Stanley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:01pm fred:

Fitting that Magma came up, there are a lot of diacritics in Kobaïan. A friend did a documentary about their tour in China, one of the rewards was having Christian Vander giving pledgers a Kobaïan name.
I don't know much about their music, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:04pm David D:

Maybe I'll play their original Mekanik at some point - funky 70s stuff.

Windy Windhoek? (I know there are songs in Deutsche about Windhoek.)

I could also go for a Kinshasa vs Brazzaville cage match showdown, two Congos enter, only one exits! (to be refereed by a Belgian....wait, too soon???)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:40pm David D:

NGH: Good idea, in any case I'm sure there will be a -ville or two...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:41pm northguineahills:

I've found old comics and postcards about Windhoek in Deustsche online (there still is a small minority Germany speaking population, and even an German kreole (that had nearly died out).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:42pm David D:

The creole must be fascinating - I will have to look for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:44pm David D:

Much of this set is also a linguistic tribute to the Berlin dialect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:50pm Doug Schulkind:

And it's a tribute to you and your wonderful selections, David.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:50pm northguineahills:

Of course, Namibia was where the Germans got their start on genocide (the Hereros and Namaqua). But it was the British next door who started the concept of the concentration camp on the Afrikaners during the Boer Wars. (ok, only happy thoughts now!)

I can only tell the difference b/tn High and Low German (Bavarian especially) on the former).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 6:51pm David D:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/16/18 7:59pm Webhamster Henry:

I had to cut out - did you play anything with dialogue in Berliner Accent? It's one I don't know too well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/16/18 8:06pm David D:

Yes, Henry, most of the oldest tracks towards the end feature a strong Berlin dialect.
