I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Hello there!

WHAT'S THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?????????????????????????????????????????????
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:14pm g:

is this the Caetano record with just his name written across a white surface? just reissued?
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:14pm zedprophfer:

  Fri. 6/13/08 12:16pm Doug:

g, yes it is, I've got it. Now I wonder if the reissue has any bonus tracks...
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:17pm d:

i caught caetano on his tour for his album ce. it was amazing. how strange that only of the best rock shows i've seen in years came from a sixty-something brazilian man.
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:18pm north guinea hills:

IVESSSSSS!!!!! Damn Bryce, you rock!
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:25pm Hugo:

LOL (so to speak)

jass, jass ...

it's all in the ear of the beholder, innit?
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:29pm bryce:

hugo, you are not allowed to read my mind today.
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:34pm Hugo:


don't hafta.
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:34pm Sean Daily:

Not exactly Agatha Christie.
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:36pm matt:

This Branca sounds so perfect right now.
  Fri. 6/13/08 12:40pm Hugo:

Much jollier than dear old Agatha, I dare say ...
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:03pm J.J. Bigglesworth III, Esq.:

cheers from the 6th floor of the Smithsonian Natural History museum, chocolate city,
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:18pm bryce:

i'd have an injera yurt
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:23pm Sean Daily:

This Maki Ishii song has me thinking "Planet of the Apes" all of a sudden.
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:24pm Doug:

I need advice on how to sort my records. I have reached an impasse. Alphabetical by genre just isn't working out for me anymore. Anyone have suggestions?
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:26pm Ike:

Mmm, injera. Would that yurt be eaten by rats before it could get moldy?

organize by haircuts.
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:38pm Sean Daily:

The Chipmunks are getting artsy on us.
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:39pm dc pat:

if you're in dc, just go to the falafel shop in Adams Morgan. Simply the best and they take euros..
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:44pm bryce:

by the river tej
  Fri. 6/13/08 1:57pm Sean Daily:

DC Pat: Are there many places in DC that take euros? Any that take JUST euros?
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:01pm dc pat:

Some but not many. Amsterdam Falafelhouse made it in the news for taking euros. They have great "pomme frits" too, whatever those are. No tej, or beer either. Don't think any place takes JUST euros.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:03pm spaniel:

doug, i'm not sure if this exists for music collections but i've seen a variety of different software programs that help with cataloging and organizing books. i use something like this for my collection and it helps a lot.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:05pm Sean Daily:

I heard on NPR a month or so ago that some restaurant in the United States (I forget where) is taking nothing but euros - no dollars. Was wondering if that had spread to anywhere else. ('Course, this story was on NPR, so it's probably three to six months behind the curve)

And, yes, I listen to NPR. It's the only news station in Las Vegas.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:06pm C:

If someone still needs ethnic restaurant suggestions in DC, I'd add Dukem for Ethiopian and Great Wall Szechuan for Chinese (best Chinese food I've had outside of China--wicked spicy!) at 14th and P, NW
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:09pm dc pat:

Haven't tried Great Wall. Meiwah is excellent for delivery. Extremely efficient and their tofu dishes are amazing.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:13pm C:

If you like tofu, try the Mapo Tofu at Great Wall. It's spicy and numbing at the same time. Oh man, I want some right now.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:15pm spaniel:

this Pierre-Andre Arcand track is amazing. i'm really curious as to what sort of a process he uses to create these sounds.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:16pm dc pat:

C: 10-4, good buddy.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:19pm Lipwak:

Hi Doug,

I have records (and this would work for CDs too but I don't have enough to worry about) in a few broad genres and use the genres for things that are obvious for them. Those genres are: main/everything else (rock, pop, etc), broadway/film, spoken, comedy, classical. If anything doesn't fit into a genre nicely, it goes in the main/everything else section. All genres are arranged alphabetically within the genre. Your shelf space will determine how they are physically arranged. Making genres accept things that could be one genre or another will have you ending up looking in several places. (It could be this; it could be that.) A catch-all category with few genres to worry about works for me. Alphabetical seems to be the best way within each genre.

Cassettes are filed by date (which is how I titled most of them), title (with separate sections for prerecorded and things I have dubbed), live recordings.

Software, unless you want to keep track of where things are, signing or scanning things in and out, only helps you make a list of what you have, not with how they are physically organized. You have to figure that out on your own. I used Delicious Library and Word to list my records and tapes (and videotapes), I recommend iCDc to list CDs if you have a Mac.


  Fri. 6/13/08 2:25pm bryce:

hey, spaniel,

seen him perform -- it is pretty amazing, just a modified walkman and a microphone. he's made a special extra long looping cassette and invented a little handheld remote thing. his thing allows him to record on either or both channels, and to obliterate or add to what's already looping. he builds those elaborate textures by just speaking and dragging the mic over stuff. kinda brilliant.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:30pm spaniel:

wow, that is amazing. i was hearing all sorts of things, and assuming he was definitely using a stringed instrument , digital sampling, editing, etc. thanks for the info. i'll have to look more into it.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:37pm Skazz:

what is this gobble-di-gook?
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:39pm dc pat:

Doug, cram all your records into a cabinet that is too small to hold them and whenever you want to listen to an album you own, buy it on iTunes.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:41pm bryce:

spaniel, yeah there may be strings! i guarantee no digital or editing, tho. there WAS a virtual pierre-andre-arcand doodad, but everything goes.

you can still ogle... http://tinyurl.com/4lyw4m
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:44pm Kenzo:

"Software only helps you make a list of what you have"

Pshaw. It's much better at helping you make a list of what you don't have.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:45pm bryce:


a few bazillion scrapey plucky jittery twitchy things, powered by solar cells, in a garden.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:50pm spaniel:

amazing stuff. continuous, dynamic, self generating, self regulating systems (as music). a genius indeed. thanks again.
  Fri. 6/13/08 2:53pm bryce:

yeah great, right? cloud-controlled menagerie....

nice soul on him, too. back when soho was just loading docks, joe jones rented a storefront for like a hundredth of a nothing, stuffed the window with his thingamers, and mounted a shit ton of doorbell buttons on the outside so drunk people could walk by and be happy at 3 am. that's love.
