  Wed. 6/20/12 9:43am Michael:

For the moment, th unpleasant bit of me that would surely sneer, even if only for a moment, at Phil's Baby, was turned off, and all I could do was hope that everything turned out well for them.

Young love is obviously often naïve and ill-advised, but the young lady sounds sweet and sincere, and again, all I could want for a moment was that she has been happy in the decades since.

Kovacs' classic late 50's/early60's shows were being rerun by PBS in the late 70's. I used to watch them with my dad, who was a fan back in the day. You can certainly see the influence on Letterman, especially those 80's NBC shows.

Percy Dovetonsils, in turn, according to my late mother, was based on someone's great idea to beam Tennessee Williams into Eisenhower-era suburban homes equipped with televisions. I think this qualifies as analogue-era trolling, as lulz are the only reason I of which I can think for doing that.

Hi, Caryn. How's the economy in Iceland? During the financial crash a couple years ago, people were blowing up their Range Rovers when they couldn't make payments anymore.
  Wed. 6/20/12 10:33am Caryn:

Iceland is recovering pretty well afaik, better than here in Ireland anyway.

They took a better option than our self-flagellation approach.

I'd love to visit Iceland sometime, probably winter for the chance to see Aurora Borealis.
  Wed. 6/20/12 10:36am Caryn:

@Ken from HP: actually, since they actually held their banks and decision-makers accountable, things are going pretty well. Prices are way lower than they were before the crash, and certainly the economy is still an issue, but I think things have developed pretty nicely.

Caryn,
And what about Bjork's economy? Did she filed for bankruptcy?
  Wed. 6/20/12 10:42am G:

Sorry, just getting online. Did I miss the Jean Shepherd-style monologue?
  Wed. 6/20/12 10:43am Caryn:

Have no clue about Björk's financial details, but even if she filed for bankruptcy, she probably did it in a combination of interpretive dance and lyrics in an imaginary language, while wearing recycled crash test dummy parts. Gotta say, seeing some of the Icelandic street wear, I suspect many Icelanders consider her outfits akin to jeans and a t-shirt...

if you think the New Neil Young sucks, you should hear the new Patti Smith
  Wed. 6/20/12 10:54am Caryn:

Have to say, the more doowop-py parts of the album are good for inspiring fits of giggles, and thus I consider the album to have its health benefits.
The album as a whole just sounds like they got drunk and just jammed almost karaoke-like in the studio. Which makes it a bit endearing.
And Crazy Horse is supposed to suck. I remember Neil saying what a good thing it is that CH are kinda crappy. No Cream-like "virtuosos trying to outdo each other with endless solos" stuff (although I love Cream, myself), just a bunch of basic musicians knocking something out. They could put a bit more energy into it sometimes, though...
  Wed. 6/20/12 10:58am f.O.F.u (:

Neil Young + the crazy guys @ Metallica = total awesomeness. Neiltallica is what we need.
  Wed. 6/20/12 10:58am Neg-guh-tor:

CH is Neil's band when he wants to have fun. He just likes playing with those guys. They have made amazing records together and this new one is among their best, in my opinion!

Not aware of an Icelandic version, Ken, but there are Welsh, Irish, British, several Caribbean, Indian, New Zealander, Canadian and "global" Esperanto versions. Can't remember if the Swedish and Finnish versions have local place names substituting the original ones...
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:15am Carmichael:

The Chinese version would be "this land is our land, so stay the fuck off of it."
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:15am Caryn:

Oh, and the East German version.

I'm pretty sure that hand-pile GIF is being played backwards. We played that as kids and we pulled our hands out of the bottom of the pile.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:19am still b/p:

Hand-piling in reverse summons Satan.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:22am Caryn:

Two Finnish versions, one with changed place names, one with the originals.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:24am hamburger:

is there a must see /do in Finland if you are just visiting for a day?
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:24am G:

Heap hope, don't stope?
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:31am Caryn:

@hamburger: hmm, depends where you are. I suppose in Helsinki, I'd stick to the old city center. All the squares have stuff going on, and the small shops, galleries etc. are great. In general, a dip in the sea or a lake and a visit to the sauna seem de rigeur (or in Helsinki, a visit to the nude baths). I might try to time a visit for Restaurant Day or one of the big festivals to see some more lively street life.

Irmão = Brother (Portuguese)

Ir, Mão = Go, Hand (see GIF)

Coincidence/happenstance can be amusing. That's what some of the famed respondents to the high school kid said on the Paris Review webpage linked to in yesterday's FMU tweetstream...

  Wed. 6/20/12 11:43am hamburger:

Coo thanks Caryn! I will be visiting with my relatives so will pass on the saunas :o)
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:45am Caryn:

Whenabouts will you be visiting, hamburger? Might help me give better hints.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:46am G:

Dwayne arrival: I call 12:06. he can't be on time two weeks in a row, cmon!
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:46am hamburger:

Helsinki - just a day, staying over night, and then back on a Ferry to Sweden for more shenanigans
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:47am G:

He's been picking up bad habits from Irwin
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:47am Dave B:

Late to the party. Looks like it'll be archives for me.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:48am Caryn:

But when? Late June, Mid-July, October?
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:49am channeling Andy:

  Wed. 6/20/12 11:49am hamburger:

Oh! Early July

  Wed. 6/20/12 11:50am Mike East:

late commenting cuz I was in the car, but I agree that the "Phil's Baby" track is one of the best pieces of found audio I've ever heard.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:52am Dave B:

@other David - "this is what happens when you find a stranger in the alps"
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:53am dc ---:

huh. Stupid bees.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:53am G:

Hypothesis: Ken put this on so he can call Duane on the PATH and get an ETA
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:54am other david:

  Wed. 6/20/12 11:54am Webhamster Henry:

Ergo/PLU: A good time to promote the Boredcast archives!
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:54am Listener Okasa:

We could all be listening to "Booty Bank" instead of this. Just saying.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:55am Carmichael:

Great show, Ken. But next time get some smarter bees.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:55am other david:

G, I suspect you're on to something!
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:56am Dave B:

some do-bees
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:57am Dan B From Upstate:

This is making me miss Do or DIY. :-(
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:57am BSI:

If Olive doesn't appear in the documentary, there's still time for a last-minute edit. YES THERE IS.
  Wed. 6/20/12 11:59am G:

Curses, foiled again!!!

[audeince applauds wildly as Duane steps up]
  Wed. 6/20/12 12:00pm Caryn:

Darn, you miss most of the big festivals, but there are some small festivals, great flea markets etc. on the weekends.
  Wed. 6/20/12 12:01pm Caryn:

Oh, and Wed-Fri every week there's the "culture tram".
  Wed. 6/20/12 12:07pm hamburger:

Nice - thanks :)
  Wed. 6/20/12 12:10pm Caryn:

A lot of the event sites are in Finnish only, but you might find some English-language info on stuff on the city's official events list: http://www.visithelsinki.fi/en/
  Wed. 6/20/12 12:13pm f.O.F.u (:

m.a. numminem for president, Caryn!
  Wed. 6/20/12 12:16pm Caryn:

Don't think he wants the job, but things would certainly be entertaining if he was, f.O.F.u (:
  Wed. 6/20/12 2:39pm Van in DC:

By the way Ken, I forgot to say congratulations on the award you won.
  Wed. 6/20/12 9:26pm cubicle carl:
