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.

  Fri. 4/3/09 12:08pm Carmichael:

BTW Bryce, thanks again for the throat singing sounds last week. I'm a huge fan of Tannu Tuva and that genre, so I really enjoy the few times I actually get to hear the stuff.

We're all just innocent brycestanders...
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:31pm dc pat:

well, you can only do that kind of stuff for so long--yesterday I suddenly became insanely sick and tired of special characters, so it's over. Hugo, knock it off.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:31pm BSI:

Welcome to the Brycecapades.
BYO Umlaut.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:33pm Hûgo:

Bry ce way ...

(I'll keep my hat on)
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:36pm dc pat:

suit yourself Hugo, just be aware that any vowel decorations are embarrassingly out of style right now...
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:36pm Carmichael:

Don't get Texas Scott started on the whole special character thing. He'll go waaaay over the top ......
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:36pm annie:

music to my ears.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:36pm Parq:

Don't hold back, shout it out umlaut.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:37pm Bulwer Lytton aspirant:

Aboard the carousel of aural abstruseness, we have grabbed the Bryce ring.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:37pm BSI:

it's alright, nobody's less fashionable than me. ... I still pray to Cupcake Dog before taking naptime on that stinky green vinyl cot in the back of the office...
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:38pm dc pat:

special characters are like 4s on Bryce's marathon playlists.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:40pm still b/p:

No, no, no...Stinky Green Vinyl is not a GNFAB.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:40pm Carmichael:

But it IS the name of my next band.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:43pm Carmichael:

Bryce, I'm beginning to hyperventilate ....
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:44pm bartleby:

Something that folks don't know is that when Bugs Bunny delivered the line commonly recalled as "and another thing, stop breathing in my cup!" to the big orange monster he was actually saying "Stop breeding in my cup!!" he had a long standing feud with the cartoon beverage bacteria over their lack of professionalism on the set.

Hi Bryce
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:44pm annie:

i don't dare leave the room , never know what's next, waiting for the next shoe to drop
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:45pm Bäd R☺nald:

Did not get the memo...
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:46pm BSI:

The air/breathing piece did recall that epic purring-cats bit a few weeks ago... although not quite as bent...
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:47pm Martin Luther Keyboard:

"...judged not by the color of their skin, but by the coolness of their characters."
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:48pm Cecile:

I know. I almost never get lunch on Wednesdays or Fridays...
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:50pm Benjamin:

Magnificent music right now ... just before 6 pm uk time and I is going home ...
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:51pm jfkl;:

  Fri. 4/3/09 12:56pm Carmichael:

I wish my name was Gerd Zacher.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:56pm Parq:

Nice high note on the Kagel. For a moment there, I thought we were making tea.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:57pm carmichael's genie:

then it shall be! your name is now Gerd Zacher.
  Fri. 4/3/09 12:57pm BSI:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:00pm bartleby:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:02pm Bäd R☺nald:

Tee Hee - "Gerd Zacher's organ"...
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:02pm Cecile:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:16pm g:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:17pm owen:

pity me everyone. i have to leave the warm embryce of the show to go out and drink beers. incidentally, this hermann nitsch track is nightmarish. it makes me feel like i'm at the G20 riots, surrounded by a bunch of ketamine hippies. urrr.
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:18pm Carmichael:

I'll pray for you, Owen.
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:18pm bartelby:

I doubt the presence of ketamine hippies at an event such as that
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:19pm BSI:

Ketamine puppies? What?
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:19pm still b/p:

An audiotaureum?
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:20pm Cecile:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:21pm Carmichael:

Ketamine Puppies broke up after their only album, "G20".
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:21pm bartleby:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:24pm texas scott:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:25pm BSI:

underneath the Taureum, archaeologists uncovered the legendary "K Hole" where the remains of a dozen puppies were found, in various positions suggesting a total effing bliss-out...
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:28pm Tristram in Brooklyn:

I've just discovered that Bryce and Band Saws don't mix.....
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:28pm Minotaur:

Under the Taureum, down by the sea, lies a pool of blood for me and my baby...
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:28pm bryce:

tristam, batter and fry!
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:30pm Pearly Sweets:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:33pm Parq:

Pearly, asphalt or clay?
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:34pm Carmichael:

I can never decide what wine goes with ketamine
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:38pm Hugo:

I went to see Faust last Friday and am happy to report that they're still alive and kicking, Zappi Diermayer and Jean Hervé Peron are the only left from the old 70s band, but have recruited three "youngsters", the youngest born in 1975! Two hours of fun time and Jean brought the cement mixer and Zappi his drill and metal cutter.
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:38pm Tristram in Brooklyn:

doomed by lightening....
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:40pm bryce:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:46pm annie:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:48pm bryce:

  Fri. 4/3/09 1:49pm ?:

If we're filing show reports....saw Big Blood in a storefront space last Sunday, and it was fiiine. Fifty or sixty people in there. Bought two CDs for a fin each! Colleen's art on the CD cover and on the walls. Wisht I'd been in front when they asked for volunteers to play tambourine and bells. I can't build a house or hit a fastball, but I can keep a beat. Tonight they plan to play a few stories up and let open windows deliver the music to Artwalk participants on the street.
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:50pm dc pat:

dammit bryce, she's gone!
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:50pm still b/p:

My BB report.
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:50pm Hugo:

Bryce, they were very good and they sounded more like a real band than what they have done for many years, I suspect. The three new ones, including the first woman in the band to date, are all English and played guitars, keyboards, synthesizer, accordion (!) and Geraldine Swainey shared vocals with Jean and even did some live painting and recitation (from Faust, of course). After two hours, a soaring version of "Krautrock" as the evening final. There is also another version of Faust, led by Jochen Irmler, but this version has two more gigs coming up in this country this year, though out of town. I'm tempted ...
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:55pm bryce:

i wish they'd hurry and fix my intercontinental pneumatic tube.
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:59pm Bäd R☺nald:

Eep, op, ork, ah ah!
  Fri. 4/3/09 1:59pm dc pat:

that means I love you!
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:04pm Hugo:

Photos here:

  Fri. 4/3/09 2:05pm Parq:

Hey, he knows the secret code!
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:07pm Parq:

Or, if you prefer:

Pop, Six, Squish, Uh-uh, Cicero, Lipschitz
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:10pm bryce:

wow, great photos! thanks, hugo

  Fri. 4/3/09 2:23pm Larry:

Hello Bryce. The Olivier Messiaen was good. I especially enjoyed the first movement. Do you keep song titles on file? Well, I should go. Keep doing a good show.

Your friend,

  Fri. 4/3/09 2:26pm joe:

Hey Bryce,
Haven't spoken to you in a while. Just getting over being really sick. Had a fungal infection and something else. Been out of work since 3/18. Just wanted to say what up
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:29pm Hugo:

Young enthusiastic chap at the Borealis festival:


And the old man holding his nose (for some odd reason):

  Fri. 4/3/09 2:32pm bryce:

hi larry,

yes, all song titles are on file in triplicate with the records department in room 162B. they are filed in order of pitch, so please be prepared when you come to submit your requisition.
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:32pm texas scott:

  Fri. 4/3/09 2:35pm Hugo:

Instant book making:


That was actually quite fun.
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:36pm BSI:

oh god....

  Fri. 4/3/09 2:39pm chris:

What's next? Dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark bees come out? Robotic Richard Simmons?
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:41pm Bob-Bee McFerrin:

Don't worry. bee happy!
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:42pm bryce:

joe voltage? oh crap, we need to boil you in formaldehyde.

tscott, i just want you to know: when you let go of your nose, you'll turn inside out.
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:42pm Parq:

"Robotic Richard Simmons" would make a good name for a -- no it wouldn't, never mind.
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:44pm texas scott:

  Fri. 4/3/09 2:47pm G.:

Somateme Körperklänge

bodytheme bodynoises

I always figured that gradschool Greek and German would be worthwhile. Not so often at the same time in one phrase.
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:48pm Hugo:

The Bryce show wouldn't be complete without an ümlaut ...
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:52pm ?:


Non-Nikolai Rimksy-Korsakov

"The Non-Flight of the Altered-State Bumblebee"
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:54pm Hugo:

Final pic:


This was at the Johannes church in the centre of Bergen. Very quiet, ambient music from tiny speakers mounted high, lasting several hours. Not unlike a Bryce playlist. For a meditative Sunday afternoon ...
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:55pm BSI:

While the ketamine puppies watch, I'm coughing up bumblebees wielding long-bladed hunting knives. This can NOT be good.

Or is it the Jani Christou which makes it so?
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:57pm chris:

Man, whatever you had for lunch I gotta try it sometime.
  Fri. 4/3/09 2:59pm G.:

lysergic cereal.

  Fri. 4/3/09 3:00pm bryce:

pneumatic tube's fixed. gotta gsssssccchplott
  Fri. 4/3/09 3:00pm G.:
