Fabio! You got a 7" of Jättiläinen? Congrats and amazing! Sounds nice.
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:08pm Pantagruel:

I demand a marathon premium of 'Mr Giant Man' in every available language.

Fabio! 25 years young!
Do you have those old guy pains? I have those old guy pains. What do you take for them?
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:43pm Cecile:

Skin Deep had some very good moments.
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:44pm steve:

wow... 25 years! congrats!
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:46pm frenchee:

Love the Alice C. track! PS: Just watched the creepy Hungarian ventrilo-choir sing "yesterday" and I'm still shuddering...
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:48pm Cecile:

*channeling Clay*
Do you use Icy Hot? Liniment? Mustard Plasters? Remember mustard plasters, Fab? Back in the day? The smell. The smell takes me back.
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:48pm Cecile:

*channeling Clay*
You know, when we're fire up a bowl, slap on some mustard plasters and listen to Starcastle. Ever do that, Fab?
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:48pm Ike:

Ha ha Cecile!
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:49pm Cecile:

*channels Fabio*
What the hell are you talking about? No!
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:50pm frenchee:

Very good, Cecile! I can hear the Pidge-voice while reading these.
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:51pm Cecile:

I kid because I love. And Clay Pigeon is hilarious.
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:51pm steve:

  Thu. 12/16/10 3:51pm frenchee:

cecile, don't forget the embarrassed chuckle when channeling fabio
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:53pm Cecile:

Good point.
  Thu. 12/16/10 3:56pm BSI:

I was hoping Don Cherry would sneak in here at some point. My hero.
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:21pm Cecile:

I think Alice Coltrane is the Yoko Ono of jazz - in the best possible way. I love her and her music, but she is misunderstood by a whole lot of people.
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:21pm Bill F.:

That last set was out-bloody-rageous.
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:25pm Cecile:

Bill F. - sure was.
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:30pm Parq:

This is how badly Greenwich Village's cultural star has fallen. When NYU opened the Skirball Performance Center years ago, it was billed as a rival to BAM. Got that? "It's a mistake to think that all the great theater is in Brooklyn -- we have a remarkably vital theater community right here in Greenwich Village."
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:36pm A Clue...:

@Parg: Humanities profs are only interested in being politically correct. That's as lethal to cultural innovation as any other rigid religion. Disclaimer: I worked at NYU fulltime for 15+ years!
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:41pm Cecile:

I wish I could disagree, but a lot of great pure teachers I know never got tenure, or ended up teaching at more remote schools with less interest in politics.
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:50pm A Clue...:

Bingo. And like any other large business, NYU grows and grows. It's getting closer and closer to being the only game in town for a large swath of the erstwhile Village.

University tenure is about getting people to think you agree with them on everything. That's the opposite of actual innovation.
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:53pm A Clue...:

The Failure of Academia...
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:56pm steve:

i just got my masters at nyu at tisch, and i couldn't agree more with the sentiment about the cluelessness of academia and greenwich village becoming a cultural wasteland. fortunately i went to a small program without tenured profs and virutally no politics! virtually everyone i knew has moved to brooklyn, queens, or nj... we even had a school function at glasslands gallery in williamsburg two nights ago!
  Thu. 12/16/10 4:58pm steve:

i like this track...
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:20pm Cecile:

Now, what were you on, Fabio? You weren't huffing mustard plasters with Clay, were you?
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:21pm Pantagruel:

Was that during one of your TM sessions, Fab?
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:25pm Cecile:

Was that during Clay's annual airing of the Jonathan Livingston Seagull record?
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:31pm Parq:

While I dig everything you guys are saying about tenure politics at NYU, my point was a little different. Try and imagine how people would react if you could go back to Greenwich Village ca. 1972 and tell folks there that a time would come when Greenwich Village would have to convince people pleadingly that it's as much a cultural mecca as Brooklyn.
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:33pm Cecile:

Ah, yes, and that too. The Village used to be the cutting edge.
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:37pm seang:

Maybe it's time to hoist the black flag and start slitting throats!
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:41pm Cecile:

or crank the Black Flag and start sipping stouts.
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:44pm Listener John:

Someone help me. I'm from the distant provinces & practically a hillbilly. I've been by NYU a lot, but I don't have a good sense of geography. Isn't NYU in the "East Village?" I thought "Greenwich Village" was on the west side of Manhattan, a good long walk from NYU & its environs.
Or is the "East Village" a lot farther east?
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:52pm ...:


It's like an explosion.
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:56pm Pantagruel:

The Triumvirate!
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:57pm Listener John:

Fabio, thanks for another great show of interesting music, all of which is completely new to me!
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:57pm Davice:

Underware . . . hope it's clean!
  Thu. 12/16/10 5:58pm Listener John:

Sounds like another gathering of the 3 great geniuses is beginning . . .
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:00pm Davice:

Let the dummy talk!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:00pm FCC:

Are you logging that Mancini?
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:01pm Davice:

Black velvet underware gives me a wedgie!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:01pm Davice:

Tag you are it!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:02pm Cecile:

I see no mention of my commentary :D
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:02pm Davice:

that's what I listen on 90.1
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:02pm A Clue...:

@Listener John. 200 years ago, the original Greenwich Village was where you came to if you continued north along fashionable residential Greenwich Street and left the city for the countryside over a mile north of town. So the original GV was on the far west side. But in the intervening 200 years, the GW came to include lots of turf. There's an "East Village" as well as a "West Village".
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:02pm Davice:

Julie's show is awesome!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:02pm Ike:

John, I thought GV was everything from 14th to Houston St., river to river, with EV a subset, but Wikipedia claims the GV is only from the Hudson River to Bway (which incl. NYU) and EV is separate, formerly part of the Lower E. Side per a 1995 NY Times article. But the West V. *is* a subset, 6th or 7th Ave. westwards. (This stuff always fascinates me....)
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:03pm glenn:

amazing commentary, cecile.
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:03pm Davice:

Go to the Tavern 1st!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:04pm glenn:

that's not julie klausner, is it?
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:04pm MARCEL:

hay there! loving the show guys
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:05pm Davice:

Don't wear underware!
  Thu. 12/16/10 6:06pm Cecile:

bowies in space, the series.
  Fri. 12/17/10 3:42pm Drew:

What happened to the minute markers? I like those because they help identify the artist, etc.
