The End End? Or just the End?

Looking forward to JGT interview...
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:12pm Julz:

Play some 'Skynyrd man! :)

Actually I didn't even know about this show until like 5 minutes ago... so my timing was impeccable as I always miss stuff like this on internet radio!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:12pm Frank:

I'm not gonna pay a lot for this muffler!!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:13pm Less Lee:

Hi Julz!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:14pm Daniel Langdon:

Ah, the wenches have arrived. Hallo!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:15pm Football Commentator:

And Ghedalia gets hit hard!! That's gotta *hurt*!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:17pm Sidekick:

He put some hurtin on him big time there, yup.
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:19pm hellbilly13:

Great as always, Fabio!Please ask JGT about his thoughts on how he was credited on the "Honeymoon in Red" album.
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:22pm Julz:

Wow... look at all of us losers glued to the internet for the night... we all need to get a hobby!

Whats really weird is that I'm listening to this and I'm also watching last night's episode of Conan O'Brien on DVR, and they're playing with wax dummies of 'The Fonz' & Tom Cruise. Plus I'm tweaking a logo in Illustrator... a very interesting soundtrack for this!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:25pm G:

I'm doing online work. Most people on comments are also doing something else while listening! Who knew!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:26pm Less Lee:

But...this is my hobby! ;P

Hi Daniel!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:26pm charles:

i'm looking at porn.
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:29pm ?:

fabio, man, I'll miss the show. Looking forward to the triumphant (or failed) return
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:33pm Ike:

I'll miss the show too. But at least we have nice-sounding AAC+ (pop-up) archives of Strength Through Failure to enjoy! OK, back to work.
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:36pm hellbilly13:

Oddly enough, I'm eating cold food.
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:42pm JGT:

I hope this car holds up to Jersey City... Listen to that engine...
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:47pm hellbilly13:

Holy Shiite,Batman!! Is that THE JGT about to breakdown on the Garden State Parkway????
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:49pm JGT:

My damn engine's goin.

Maybe I could livefeed it to the show...
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:49pm frater_puck:

  Wed. 6/17/09 8:50pm JGT:

Tryin here, man!!! sputtersputterchugchug
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:50pm Julz:

  Wed. 6/17/09 8:50pm Ike:

If he's on the GS Parkway, then he's really lost, Hellbilly! Should've taken PATH! Heh.

Uh oh, gremlins have gotten into the music! Nice!
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:52pm Listener:

I know the sound of someone peeing into a terlet when I hear it.
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:54pm hellbilly13:

Don't make me run down from Masshole land and carry you on my back Y''bastard! (And yet I will!!).
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:55pm JGT:

Bastard??????? Leave my momma outta this, you!!! :-P
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:57pm ?:

ma-RI-a . . .
  Wed. 6/17/09 8:59pm top o the hour:

Maybe a travel update is imminent...
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:00pm hellbilly13:

If we left your Momma outta this, NONE of us would be here!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:00pm Julz:

I think Mighty Whitey needs a Quick Fix!
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:02pm frater_puck:

who in Jersey can go find him and pick him up?
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:02pm JGT:

Hey Fabio -- Tx for tuning my guitar on the air for the last ten minutes, that'll save time later!
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:04pm woohoo!:

he made it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:05pm Wade Banks:

FABIO: can you please ask Mr. Thirlwell if we will hear more from Baby Zizanie?
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:13pm wound fan:

Stapleton hated Insect & Individual Silenced, and allegedly destroyed the masters. There's a bootleg CD that's been around for a while, and it has since been released in a reworked version. Read wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insect_and_Individual_Silenced
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:14pm hellbilly13:

Ask Mr. Thirwell about Lydia Lunch ...eventually
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:16pm worth recalling:

"Yeah failure, that's what Venture Bros. is all about. Beautiful sublime failure." —Doc Hammer
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:17pm Julz:

No, don't ask about Lydia... some of that shit is personal... and, its pretty obvious anyway.
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:18pm WarHellRide:

"The piece Te Deum is inspired by Bunuel's classic Exterminating Angel, which was my favorite film at the time. It was recorded for a cassette compilation called Bethel, which was compiled and released by John Balance of Coil. The whole rhythm track is made with prepared piano and toy piano. Te Deum was a hymn played in the film, (although this is not a cover version of that hymn), but I also like the wordplay on "te deum -> tedium". The piano was prepared with alligator clips attached to the strings and thumbtacks in the hammers, objects placed between some strings with others damped with gaffer tape. The organs detune from each other by changing the varispeed while recording. On this track, like "Sick Minutes", a lot of the parts cycle in different time signatures so they never intersect at same point. There are a lot of concrète sound effects spun in. Before sampling technology was introduced I used to spin in sounds from prepared cassettes, and use tape loops, or "play " sounds onto tape using pause buttons on cassette machines. Some of my tracks like "What Have You Been Doing" and "I'll Meet You In Poland Baby" were constructed almost totally with effects, loops and sounds and very few live instruments. When sampling became available, I embraced it as it was a new way to do what I had been doing - organize sound.
I tracked down the screenplay of Exterminating Angel which was the source of the dialog quotes - "vulgarity, violence and dirt", "in a few hours he'll be completely bald". The "baa" sounds represent the sheep which the inhabitants see while entrapped in the room. This track and its companion, "Piano Piece", were noisy because they were mixed to cassette. At the time I figured it was for a cassette release, so why bother mix to tape? But Fred Kevorkian has done an amazing mastering and restoration job on this album."
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:20pm Julz:

I have Exterminating Angel on tape, but I've never gotten around to watching it. I really need to get on that already...
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:21pm Less Lee:

Yes! Bunuel's movies are fantastic.
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:26pm hellbilly13:

Don't mean to pry,Julz, my question is about the way he was credited on the Honeymooni n Red album,(one of my favorites). I think La Lunch shortchanged hi
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:30pm Julz:

The credits on 'Honeymoon in Red' had several panties in a bind... perhaps its scab that should be left unpicked. :)
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:31pm Debian Cafe:

I say ask whatever you want - he can demur if desired. This isn't Iran.
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:38pm Julz:

just be respectful.
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:42pm guessing:

fabio can manage
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:43pm hellbilly13:

No,Julz is spot on, I stand corrected
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:46pm Viva:

Ask Jim if he remembers me - he used to sing Elvis Presley songs to me in primary school...
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:48pm Julz:

ahhhh yes.... the art topic. This is the stuff I am the most rabid about! :) Thats why I ever listened to him in the first place... that artwork grabbed me by the throat!
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:51pm Tacvba:

jitterbuggin' outta my skull. we hate you too!
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:58pm hellbilly13:

All I know is ...this is one great show, yes?
  Wed. 6/17/09 9:59pm mmmhmmmm:

Yes.
  Wed. 6/17/09 10:00pm Julz:

Yes, its been quite amusing... but it's now past my bedtime.
  Wed. 6/17/09 10:01pm frater_puck:

Fantastic show! Glorious!
  Wed. 6/17/09 10:02pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 6/17/09 10:02pm hellbilly13:

Reord, Julz, record!!
  Wed. 6/17/09 10:03pm Raymond Watts:
