  Fri. 1/6/12 9:13am fred:

Good morning Scott
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:17am Scott:

hey fred!
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:20am eric:

Morning! I have this Monk/Coltrane CD. It is great!
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:26am Marmalade Kitty:

G'morning Scott, Fred, Eric & all.. Awesome!
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:41am Caryn:

Hello all!
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:41am Brian in UK:

Scott, it's funny, I was looking at the series of Indonesian records on Smithsonian the other day, the one you played is vol 12, I think, great series.
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:42am Brian in UK:

Hello Caryn, any luck with job hunting?
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:44am Scott:

Hi Caryn, Hi Brian.
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:58am Cecile:

Ah....love the "Nicks".
It is the aural equivalent of big water - calm sometimes, stormy others.

The Dead C have that quality, too. But it's more stormy.

Hi,all!
  Fri. 1/6/12 9:59am maestroso:

This hypnotic Necks piece is really great.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:01am BSI:

adrift in a sea of neck.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:02am Cecile:

the Necky Sea.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:03am Cecile:

And has there ever been a bad DJ-KIcks?
I've learned so much from those.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:07am Caryn:

@Brian: Well, a small one-off job that I'm doing right now. Should be finished next week. So far, nothing else in the pipeline, but the search goes on. Thanks for asking!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:10am Dead Corporate Eyes:

better rum through the jungle
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:13am Brian in UK:

Cecile, have you seen 'The Artist' yet? Just opened over here. Looking forward to going.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:15am Cecile:

I want to! That and Hugo.
And I'm not ashamed to admit it, the new bastardized Sherlock Holmes was a raucous good time.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:17am Cecile:

I also saw a decent movie masquerading as a "Lifetime True Movie." Murder on Pleasant Drive - Adam Arkin and Amy Madigan. They really underplayed everyting. Adam Arkin did a great job of being a serial killer who gets petulant when no one asks him about his feelings. Surprising what sneaks on there.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:29am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I haven't heard the name "Adam Arkin" in a long time!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:29am Cecile:

it's too bad, he's a darn good actor.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:33am tramshed:

what the shitfuck, this is the clash? I must have missed some albums or something
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:34am ?:

@cecile

the new holmes? seriously! the first one was total crap
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:36am Andrew:

Go for the BBC's Sherlock if you want some exciting Holmes action. Much better than Ritchie's.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:38am Marmalade Kitty:

Sandanista! 1980 theres a great instrumental version of call up, on super black market clash - the cool out..?
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:39am Cecile:

It's mindless fun.
And it's refreshing to see someone who can actually direct an action scene. Yes, I'm looking at you Christopher Noland and Jon Favreau.

I LOVE Sherlock.

My taste in moview is like my taste in Mexican food. I love both Taco Bell AND homemade gorditas and huaraches I get in Midtown Mpls.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:40am Cecile:

high and low
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:40am mahendra singh:

the jeremy brett sherlock, naturally, not the latest BBC updating … and how about some more indonesian music? Some jaipong please!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:40am lewis:

@Cecile - I am new to the twin cities - any recommendations on the food front...
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:42am Cecile:

God, do not make me go buy Sandanista again...I might have to...

I like Jeremy Brett. I like Basil Rathbone. I like the new Sherlock. I like the reimaginings. It's all good for the most part.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:42am Cecile:

lewis, what are your tastes? and your budget?
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:43am Richard:

Kilgore: I love the sound of Lee Perry in the morning!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:43am lewis:

Cecile - across the board, right now I was thinking of the mexican you alluded to
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:46am Cheri Pi:

Damn-that Upsetter track was the bomb!!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:48am Cecile:

A good place to start is Los Ocampos. It's fast-food style, but 100% authentic. The Midtown Market is also nearby, more amazing Mexican, Asian, Swedish food and you can buy groceries there to boot!

For cheap and huge, Colossal Cafe in South Minneapolis. It's a tiny place! Al's Breakfast in Dinkytown makes great pancakes - just don't go there on weekends.

Brasa does this interesting fusion cooking Southern/Latin/Aisan and it's really tasty and comes in varying family size portions. Bar La Grassa has a wide array of prices and dishes. You can get a huge pasta for $8 or less.

The 112 restaurant is the same - same owners, different food, also reasonable. All the cooks in town eat there.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:49am Cecile:

The Tea House restaurants have great Szechuan, as do Great and Little Szechuan.
Abu Nader is mostly takeout only, but it has some of the best Middle Eastern food in the city. Emily's has killer Lebanese.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:51am Cecile:

Wilde Roast is a fantastic cafe/coffeehouse that welcomes everyone, although it is a center of GLBT culture in the Cities. The pillars in the place are painted with peacock feathers! they have great desserts and the most inauthentic and delicious quesadilla - apple and brie!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:53am Marmalade Kitty:

Cecile, you're making me very hungry! Mmmmm:)
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:54am Cecile:

Great Vietnamese can be had at Quang, Saigon, and the slightly more refined Jasmine Delis.

All the Thai places are different, nobody can agree on the best, but I like True Thai and Sen Yai/Sen Lek.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:55am lewis:

Cecile - thanks - I know (and love) Brasa. I have connections with some of the higher end options (Cafe Levian, Restaurant Alma, Sea Change), but am still finding my way on other fronts.

now I have my eating out agenda cut out for me

soo excellent!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:55am Cecile:

this has become a very good eating down.

Two good crazes that have hit here are Japanese comfort food and coal or wood fired pizza ovens.

I recommend Obento Ya or Fugi Ya for the former, and Black Sheep, Pizza Nea or Elements for the latter.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:57am Cecile:

And Kramarczuk's Ukrainian deli. Superb.

Also, VInent , the French restaurant has a great happy hour and good deals. And a burger stuffed with short ribs!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:57am lewis:

my nephew (who is one of those cooks you mentioned) is in town - I will drag him to some of these next week. Japanese comfort food sounds great!
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:57am Cecile:

anyway, you lave lots to explore.
And the Russian Tea House, it's only open two days a week, but great pieroshki and salads.
  Fri. 1/6/12 10:58am Cecile:

Star chef Tim McKee opened a robata place called Masu. I haven' been there, but people love it. I personally love Obenta Ya cause it's close to home, and they are super-nice. And it's cheap!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:00am lewis:

indeed - it is so great to be back in a metropolitan area with good restaurants across the board!

(My nephew worked with McKee at Sea Change before he move to Yountville CA)
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:00am Mike East:

dang. just missed Lee Scratch Perry. Good morning and Happy Friday, all!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:01am Cecile:

Oh ! And how could I forget Tanpopo? That's a great noodle shop in St. Paul. Their nabe is thing of beauty.

oh, awesome, lewis!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:02am Cecile:

I should go to McKee's places, but frankly when i have the money for a spendy meal, I just like to go to Vincent or 112 or La Grassa. Good portions, great technique, no fuss.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:02am Dead Corporate Eyes:

best song ever written!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:03am PKNY:

"Maggot Brain" makes everything better.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:03am Cecile:

Oh! And your nephew must know about Psycho Suzie's Motor Lounge. It's like Trader Vic's with tattooes. Their pizza is EXCELLENT.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:04am Cecile:

Just say YES to Maggot Brain.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:05am Screeny:

"Maggot Brain" perfect song for nearly any occasion.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:05am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'm a Maggot Brain slut!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:05am Dead Corporate Eyes:

just do me with that guitar solo
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:05am Cheri Pi:

Take me!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:06am PKNY:

Eddie Hazel was, is, and ever shall be, that dude.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:06am lewis:

Cecile - thanks for all the suggestions. I look forward to the adventure!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:06am Cecile:

DCE, have you heard the version on the single that came with the One Nation Under a Groove album?

Oh, good, lewis! When you see me on the boards, let me know what you think.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:08am Dead Corporate Eyes:

hmmm...I may have...can't recall now--was it shorter? I've heard a live version too.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:08am Andrew:

Hah! Maggot Brain did you long before you even asked.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:09am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I've been having relations with this song since I was a pre-teen!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:09am Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is getting weird
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:10am Marmalade Kitty:

Go, maggot brain!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:10am Cecile:

Maggot Brain is starting to sound like it should be on To Catch A Predator.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:10am Cheri Pi:

DCE-Do you have any Maggot Brain children (that you know about?)
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:11am Cheri Pi:

This Agali Ag Amoumine is the shit right here, I'm buying this record stat.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:13am Marmalade Kitty:

maggot brain is good for fishing and organic disposal of waste food
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:14am Dead Corporate Eyes:

ha ha Cheri Pi the little buggers is squirmin' all over the place!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:20am Scott:

Uh oh. I don't know when the songs end on this LP.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:20am Brian in UK:

It's probably uncool to say that Chaka Demus & Pliers do a great version of 'One Nation.....' Sly Dunbar drumming, say no more.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:21am Dead Corporate Eyes:

just roll with it Scottie old boy
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:29am Mike East:

My wife left one of my records spinning all day yesterday. When I got home, it was locked on a skip. Was it wrong that I lectured her? I feel like one of those dad's who won't let his family touch his stereo...but seriously
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:33am Cecile:

it is a waste of electricity. Try that angle.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:34am Ike:

"Is it just so complicated to keep my records in order? Put the rock and roll with the rock and roll, put the R&B with the R&B. I mean you're not going to put Charlie Parker in with the rock and roll, would you?"

"I don't know, who is Charlie Parker?"

(P.S. Speaking of lecturing, there's no apostrophe in "dads.")
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:34am Andrew:

Don't lecture your family. Just implement a simple punitive fine system, and make her pay for a new stylus. You'll be the James Brown of Dads.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:36am Dead Corporate Eyes:

Oh I would SO lecture on that...I get enough lectures from her, believe me, it'd be nice to be able to give one once in awhile.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:37am Scott:

Hmmm, well records are meant to be listened to and shared and even left skipping all day by your wife. Ya know?
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:37am Cecile:

my husband has actually lectured me about it when I forget with my records. He's all "you're wasting electricity! And I'm not buying a new stylus for you!"
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:38am Mike East:

All valid points. (Especially Ikes apostrophe correction).
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:38am Cecile:

I was in bad teenager mode for sure.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:38am Ike:

Hey, several minutes ago, I was thinking I wanted to hear more from this Hospitality record, and bang! It appears! Same thing re: Twerps the other night on EFD's show -- it just magically happened. I love beautiful coincidences. Unless it's ESP.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:38am Caryn:

On the other hand, at least you know she was listening to good music. And on vinyl. So there's that.
Also, damn you Cecile for making me hate the town I live in (a couple of fast food chains, two Chinese, one Thai, one crappy Spanish, two tex-mex joints, one Albanian & one Argentinian ice cream joint is it for us)...
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:39am Cecile:

The Italian food is often weak here, if that's any consolation.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:39am Dead Corporate Eyes:

where you at, Caryn?
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:40am Brian in UK:

Caryn. ALBANIAN
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:40am Dead Corporate Eyes:

America?
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:40am Cecile:

This song makes me feel unpatriotic
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:40am Cecile:

I know, Brian!
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:41am Ike:

No lutefisk joints, Caryn? Oh wait, wrong Scandinavian country.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:42am Mike East:

That was one of my points - "You're not a teenager!" - she also left several records out of their sleeves kinda strewn about. But yes, I was glad she was listening to vinyl as opposed to her ipod on shuffle.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:42am Cecile:

I'm told that people in Scandinavia are smart enought not to eat that stuff.
You can't find it in restaurants here - homes only.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:43am Cecile:

oooh, you'd yell at me Mike.
I'm such a slob.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:43am Cecile:

I like this Andy Stott
(removes mental Canadian flag pin)
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:44am Andrew:

I once came home and found my records covered in bits of lutefisk.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:45am Caryn:

@DCE: Kouvola, a medium-sized town in southeast Finland, about 2 hours from the Russian border. We wouldn't even be mid-sized if we weren't a railway hub.
@Brian: yeah, and funnily enough, the Albanian place has the best food in town! Best lamb I've ever had. Lousy service though. But great decor.
@Ike: no, lutefisk is only eaten at X-mas dinner here. And even then by very few people. My grandma would offer it on X-mas, but I would wisely abstain. My parents on the other hand wouldn't even make it. But why would they, since no-one in the family ate the vile stuff?
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:47am Cecile:

Are you in the Karelian region Caryn?
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:48am Caryn:

@Cecile: we border it, but no. It's to the east and north of us.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:49am Brian in UK:

Caryn, they are talking Finnish hip hop on Doug's show running on the stream.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:49am Cecile:

I know about that mostly through that Hedningarna record. :D
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:53am Caryn:

@Brian: looked up the stream. Poor Ricardo. FInnish hip hop is, for the most part (and by that I mean a VAST majority) utter crap... Some decent acts, and some interesting newcomers, but mostly total tat. The "golden years" of Finnish hip hop were a few years back.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:55am Cecile:

I don't know from Finnish hip-hop. I like Korpiklaani. They make me laugh.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:58am Caryn:

@Cecile: Korpiklaani are from around here. From Lahti, which is the next big city over (25 minutes west from here). They're nice, but I think I preferred them when they were still Shaman.
  Fri. 1/6/12 11:59am Cecile:

S'cool.
There are many people named Lahti where I grew up in Upper Michigan.
So Shaman is worth checking out?
  Fri. 1/6/12 12:00pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Caryn, are you from Finland or a transplant?
  Fri. 1/6/12 12:00pm yayson:

more S H R E D D I N G
  Fri. 1/6/12 12:01pm Scott:

thanks everybody, see ya next time!
  Fri. 1/6/12 12:05pm Caryn:

Born & raised, DCE.
Lahti is a very popular surname here (among the 10 most common last names in Finland). It means "bay". Korpiklaani is very close in sound to their original incarnation, so if you like them now, you'll like them as Shaman. The only difference is that as Shaman, they sang in the Sami language and often using Sami singing styles.
