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. 10/16/09 12:20pm Stuart Troutman:

Is it true that these are accurately called "jaw harps"?
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:22pm Ike:

I'm really glad that it's a jew's harp kind of Friday.
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:23pm Jed:

I used to pull on the strap and...what was I doing with my aunt's bra? FUCK YOU.
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:26pm coelacanth:

what was she roundin' up ?...nevermind...i cant think about this {--whimper---}
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:27pm coelacanth:

  Fri. 10/16/09 12:34pm coelacanth:

thanks for the mouth harp, Bryce....but now i'm psyched for gamelan.
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:38pm Cecile:

have any tapani varis? (Finnish jew's harp player)
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:41pm brewmaster:

some dijeridoo, maybe?
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:41pm BSI:

Have any prawn vindaloo?
crab malabar?
onion kulcha?
hot tea?
jeezus, must be lunchtime...
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:43pm Cecile:

any daniel higgs?
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:44pm coelacanth:

is that Popeye, puttering in the kitchen ?
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:44pm NS Andy:

This must be Bugs Bunny's experimental period...
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:46pm Bugs:

What's outre, doc?
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:46pm bryce:

hey, C! don't have mr. varis handy, but that's a great one! he plays some really weird super-low harps on that one.

stuart - people in the, er, community started calling them jaw harps a few years ago, because jews harp sounds weird to say, especially considering that jews are one group that seem to have never had any. i've heard "juice harp" too, but that's just goofy.

the best is the italian word, scacciapensieri — "thought dispeller!"
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:47pm coelacanth:

Bugs,& Popeye greatly influenced George Crumb.
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:51pm BSI:

  Fri. 10/16/09 12:51pm Rob W:

Bryce, you're killing me! (By the way, I thought we did have a cd from Tapani Varis in the FMU library, a US release by Northside label - but maybe not?)
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:52pm Cecile:

that's where I remember him from, Rob.
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:53pm Ike:

Oh yeah, the marathon premium. I'm covering the outside of the Monty building with a thick layer of millions of petrified Sago beetles, locking you in, Bryce, until you finish the damn thing.
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:53pm coelacanth:

a thousand years,Bryce?..i'll be waiting...still un-evolved
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:54pm bryce:

hey rob! we dohave that?? doi, i shoulda known...
btw, remember lena strayhorn? she's coming for a visit soon! trying to get her to bring her indonesian field recordings...
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:58pm Rob W:

Really? Hey Brice, you could consider having her on your show, that would be great! (Folks, Lena is a another jew's harp maniac, she was on FMU a couple of times before she skipped town a few years ago.)
  Fri. 10/16/09 12:59pm BSI:

speaking of marathon beetles...
whatever became of the locked-groove LP? Last I heard the test-pressings were approved, yeh? Should be nearing the birth-canal any time, yeh?
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:02pm bryce:

oh coelacanth, you'll always have legs to me. vavaVOOOOM

rob, oh ho don't worry — i'll be handcuffing her as she gets off the plane!
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:02pm Cecile:

I would tune in for another harp show, for sure.
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:05pm perrin:

  Fri. 10/16/09 1:06pm bryce:

BSI, can't blame me for THAT! these fmu people....they have no sense of responsibility.

  Fri. 10/16/09 1:08pm BSI:

i just wanted a reason to say BIRTH CANAL.....
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:12pm coelacanth:

you say birth canal, i say baby-shute....(let's call the whole thing off.)
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:13pm BSI:

There's a vas deferans between those terms, if you think it ovary...
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:14pm annie:

BSI- you win!!!
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:17pm coelacanth:

  Fri. 10/16/09 1:18pm Stuart Troutman:

Is Stockhausen himself playing one of the instruments here?
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:23pm coelacanth:

Thank you Bryce.'got to go work in the possiblerain....Long Live Stockhausen!
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:23pm perrin:

  Fri. 10/16/09 1:45pm coelacanth back to get the dogs:

  Fri. 10/16/09 1:46pm Ike:

Bryce has a sister?!?!

Is she also seven feet tall with a shaved head?
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:48pm bryce:

no, but she *can* squirt air through her tear ducts. audibly.
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:49pm annie:

you guys are weird.. i say that in a loving way..
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:52pm Cecile:

loving but slightly terrified, annie? You can level with me...
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:54pm coelacanth:

OUCH! i cant do it...i CAN squirt tears through my air ducts,though....so,Bryce- is there a tape somewhere of the sound that makes?
  Fri. 10/16/09 1:54pm jk:

  Fri. 10/16/09 1:54pm Cecile:

  Fri. 10/16/09 2:24pm ?:

@ anyone to everyone:

is that a translation of Bryce's playlist header into dialect? I once saw the UN's translation of the Declaration of Human Rights into Nigerian Pidgin English. Very funny in a guilty, un-P.C. way . . .
  Fri. 10/16/09 2:31pm doron:

I am very sorry to report we have to take the streams down for a few minutes for maintenance. We should be back up soon.
