Happy Birthday Franko!
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:16am PMD:

Morning all. Hi BW - looking forward to a great morning of music.
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:24am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Maybe you need to turn the record over to play the other channel.
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:25am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

It is the big hole in the middle that explains the allure of the 45.
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:27am annie:

listening from another computer this am!!! good morning all.. pmd, back to normal wednesday ...
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:27am annie:

  Mon. 10/19/09 9:31am bw:

the video clip is from a recent BBC doc called "upgrade me" the kids didn't know what a record player was!!!
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:33am postmanpaul:

hi bw - woops, of course dl's must be learner dj's!
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:34am annie:

PMP-i am back from there. now, but staying in town cause the pup is getting spayed tomorrow..... ...the absinthe tasting went great!!
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:36am postmanpaul:

i wouldn't mind acquiring a taste for that myself annie. is it really rocket fuel?
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:39am dc pat:

damn, this is beautiful, I *should* write music...
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:39am annie:

it's a very smooth drink, and this distiller is a friend of mine, she sure knows what she is doing..
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:39am jan:

the program sounds great!
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:55am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Was that a Compact Disc skip I heard?
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:57am dc pat:

man, I had some Hungarian absinthe and it was some serious, harsh, medicine. We were instructed to light a spoon of the stuff on fire to melt some sugar for it.
  Mon. 10/19/09 9:58am bw:

oh man.. only one hour in.. not sure I am gonna make it!! this is a lot of records on the floor
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:03am Cecile:

I kind of want to see it, but I can't see it being longer than 15 minutes, ever.
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:03am annie:

cheryl says that's the chech way and it's horrible way to serve it.. her absinthe is much smoother and no sugar is necessary
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:04am dc pat:

I liked the book but have absolutely no interest in the movie. I just sounds dumb as hell--you just can't make a movie out of that book. Whole different thing.
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:04am Cecile:

  Mon. 10/19/09 10:04am bw:

im tellin you - it was torture to sit through.. I even brought beer!
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:05am dc pat:

  Mon. 10/19/09 10:06am Cecile:

Eh. I guess I just want to see Whip It more.

Or rewatch The Fall.
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:10am annie:

sorry, bw, i did like the movie, but was disappointed about the changes, too..the one thing i watched for was then ending where his dish of food was still hot... no steam coming off that chocolate cake.. oh cecile, i did see the fall... i had a hard time with it...
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:13am Cecile:

I kind of loved it, but it really drags you through the emotions. And is really disturbing on a lot of levels. It is one of the most visually stunning movies I've ever seen, though.

It is a polarizing film, though.
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:14am Ken From Hyde Park:

We may see the movie when the DVD shows up a the local library. Those Disney movies with that insipid "Yours to own..." intros make me barf, though.
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:15am annie:

yes, i felt the girl was put through too much trauma... i loved the science of sleep!!!
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:16am annie:

and i could not make it through the hurt locker...
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:22am Cecile:

She had a rough road there, but I loved that she ended up savying the day somehow. But as my friend put it, worst...babysitter..ever.

I made it through the hurt locker, but I'm told the second time is much easier and you can really enjoy it.

I need to see science of sleep, I have it TiVod. I am just too lazy.
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:22am stingy d:

it's moday mane, i'm gettin drunk mane!
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:25am stingy d:

early mane
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:26am annie:

worth every second cecile... science of sleep...
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:26am stingy d:

am i the only one listening to waaaay too much gucci mane recently?
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:30am stingy d:

well... brrrrussia is great! and great brrrrritain is pretty good too. guccimerica is not bad either.
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:44am Parq:

Joining late here; what movie were you guys discussing before?
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:45am dc pat:

I'm pretty sure we have a machine for looking into a man's mind..
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:47am bw:

we was talkin bout Cocksucker Blues - Robert Frank - screening at the MET this saturday
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:50am dc pat:

Italian Sunglass Movie is my new favorite song.

Yeah, Wire.
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:50am dc pat:

SHIT! I mean Mekons!!
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:51am Cecile:

Parq, I count so far:

where the wildthings are
The Fall
The Science of Sleep
The Hurt locker
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:51am dc pat:

that's embarrassing...I gotta turn in my punk rock card...
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:54am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

I thought Felix was saying "I crave accolades."
  Mon. 10/19/09 10:57am dc pat:

I think the Mekons tune is from Peel sessions.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:08am Cecile:

los microwaves! OMG.
Do you have lawnchairs?
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:11am Minor:

Los Microwaves = BRILLIANT.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:20am cb:

Yes! This Crayon is great!
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:27am R ! S K Y:

  Mon. 10/19/09 11:38am Ken From Hyde Park:

Note to self....don't leave valuables unattended on a restaurant table.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:41am Ike:

*Were* they unattended or did somebody use the crowdedness to rifle through stuff while brushing up against it, etc.?
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:46am Liz B.:

A gal rifled through my purse as it was inside of another larger bag underneath my chair wedged next to the wall of the restaurant. She must have been crawling right under my chair and I didn't notice (my back was facing her table)! She managed to unzip every compartment of my purse, find the wallet and leave the restaurant unnoticed (my bf realized what had happened later... 2 gals came in and sat at the table behind us, didn't order anything, and left... with my wallet). D'oh.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:50am paul:

greasy kid stuff!!!
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:51am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Liz - That sucks. Sorry.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:51am dc pat:

Jeezus, that's unbelievable. Ballzy is what I'd call it.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:51am Ike:

Holy crap Liz!

Anyway, based on the accents, I'm guessing that Komik-Kazee were not singing about Bloomfield NJ.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:52am anyone to everyone:

anybody know what record player that is in the video? looks really nice
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:53am Liz B.:

Definitely ballzy! Thanks for the sympathy!
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:54am Emily:

what a bunch of jerks! sorry that happened, Liz.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:54am Ike:

The last time I got mugged, at least they were decent enough to throw back my wallet after taking out the cash, so I wouldn't have to go back to the DMV etc. And they threw back my crappy phone, too. Another good reason not to have an iPhone.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:55am Ken From Hyde Park:

<voice of Droopy the dog>

Know what? That makes me mad.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:56am dc pat:

I have the cheapest piece of shit phone you can "buy". BUT, it plays White Riot when it rings and that is truly ALL I care about.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:57am bw:

Ike they are FROM NJ!
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:57am dc pat:

HEY, is this JR tune a 45??
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:58am Ike:

BW, no way, really?!? Why did I think they sounded British?! I figured there had to be a Bloomfield somewhere near Liverpool or something.
  Mon. 10/19/09 11:58am bw:

um... sure!
