Hi Fabio.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:12pm duke:

Failure of life financial aid
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:12pm too much coffee:

afternoon, drones!
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:12pm BSI:

All these hundreds of years later, and that bass player on Giant Man still cracks me up...
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:13pm Mike East:

hmm...somethin' ain't workin' right with Flash.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:14pm DCE:

yeah, I'm down to 20k WiMP. I thought it was just my IT dept fucking with me.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:16pm too much coffee:

...as in, "think of life is a kind of an installment plan... where you just keep paying, and paying, and paying the tuition... and you only hope you can find something to learn from it, after the fact"
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:16pm BSI:

128k MP3 has been fine over here.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:17pm ERD:

All James Last induces laughter, but in the best way possible. 128k mp3 working fine here too
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:18pm too much coffee:

yup, 128k all happy
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:19pm nic:

great love this.......!!!
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:22pm Cecile:

those timers in the last piece were messing with my head - I have lots of timers going off during my work day.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:24pm DCE:

Cecile, were you on vacation last week? we missed you.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:24pm ERD:

Mille Plateaux circa late 90s was so refreshing; I remember the original Clicks & Cuts 3LP set was mindblowing back in 2000
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:26pm BSI:

Hey now, I was on vacation last week, & had this mental image of THE TRIBE all happy and intact over here while I was messing about in northern Michigan. If Cecile was AWOL, that ruins my whole fake reality thing.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:29pm DCE:

oh yeah, I did notice you not contributing to the stew as well. it was a flavorless gelatin without both of you.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:29pm Mike East:

@BSI - I guess we were missing our Shaman and Chief, but otherwise made it through.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:31pm BSI:

Plugged the iPhone into the rental car & caught some of Scott W's show on monday, it made a long drive much more hallucinogenic...
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:31pm Ike:

  Thu. 6/21/12 3:32pm Cecile:

Yes, DCE I was up in the lovely Upper Penisula of Michigan for a while.

BSI, no kidding? Where were you in Northern Michigan?
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:32pm Magnum:

  Thu. 6/21/12 3:32pm DCE:

you guys went camping together--how cute!
  Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/21/12 3:33pm adler:

Mike East : does this work for you? wfmu.org...
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:33pm Cecile:

if by camping you mean hanging out in the Super 8....
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:34pm DCE:

adler, that did nothing for me. Flash comes up but nothing happens.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:34pm Cecile:

Flash is working great for me today, usually I have trouble.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:34pm Mike East:

@Cecile - we were speculating on your whereabouts last week. I guessed the U.P. What do I win?

@adler - I switched over to 128k, but yes, that does work, also. Thanks!
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:34pm BSI:

@Cecile: zee Mother in law (based in suburban detroit) is turning 80, so we did the whole Mackinac Island thing, then Sault ste.Marie. Never been up there before... t'was a groove...
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:36pm fred von helsing:

I hope they're packin' MY swag :-D
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:36pm Mike East:

@DCE - I had the same problem "loading..." Luckily I have a backup...but WinMP sounds like poop.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:36pm Cecile:

Agh, we were only about 200 miles away from each other....!

Mackinac Island was fun, but next time we're going to picnic, ride horsies and avoid the stores and crap.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:37pm Cecile:

Haven't been to the Sault in about, yikes almost 40 years.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:39pm BSI:

Mackinac was definitely a TRIP for this city kid (instinctive fear of horses and no taste for fudge). The Sault was cool; Never experienced "large-scale industrial engineering" as a tourist concept before. Sitting up there watching freighters go thru the canal locks, felt like we were at a baseball game. ...

that's somewhere between really cool and desperately weird...
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:40pm Cecile:

@Mike East, hrm. Let me think.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:41pm BSI:

...that sounded snide. Didn't mean it. It was a blast. & outstanding tunes, sir Fabio.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:42pm Cecile:

The locks are mind-blowing. it's crazy how interesting they can be. Did you hit Tahquamenon Falls? I should go back there, one of the nicer parks I've been to.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:43pm Cecile:

you sounded no snottier than me when I talk about going up there, BSI.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:43pm too much coffee:

BSI: reminds me of my first road trip up to Hamburg (through the southern waterfront area) in the early 90s. like, just this huge forest of laoding cranes...
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:47pm BSI:

...but the record-shopping in Ann Arbor was a treat (who knew?!!?). It's gonna take ages to hear it all...
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:48pm fred von helsing:

Forbidden Planet
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:49pm Cecile:

Ann Arbor is a goldmine.
Tell me you went to Wazoo Used Records.
I worked there for a bit in the 80s. It's a great store.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:49pm Cecile:

And the garage sale that is Liberty Music.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:51pm G:

Wazoo was there when I was an undergrad, later 70s. Wonder how far back it goes, name sounds 60s...

My roommate worked at the dreaded Music Mart for awhile...
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:53pm BSI:

Wazoo & Encore Records around the corner. Everything from Cosmic Couriers to Penderecki, Conrad Schnitzler, etc... Found those two shops at random & promptly had a lovely heart attack.
  Thu. 6/21/12 3:53pm G:

Their website says 1974, I got there in 75...
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:00pm tim from champaign:

I also dig Underground Sounds in Ann Arbor. I never make it very far in Encore - too overwhelming. Also, I usually hit my quota with the AA/Ypsi/Detroit bin that's right inside the door at Encore. I always have good luck at Wazoo too. Then there's Flat Black and Circular down the road in East Lansing.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:02pm tim from champaign:

OK, Fabio, let's discuss Da Yoopers. That discussion involves music and the UP.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:02pm john:

Django - great Main title theme! covered amazingly by Joe Preston's Thrones
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:02pm BSI:

John Phillip Law IS Sinbad!
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:03pm Cecile:

Encore, that's right. I just call it Liberty because that's what it was back in the day.

G: I worked at Discount Records. I understand - just as bad. Wazoo I think started in 69 or 70.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:03pm Cecile:

Let's not, tim. :/
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:04pm Cecile:

ha, G. I'm off by a bit...
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:04pm Carmichael:

Good afternoon Fab and peoples.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:08pm Cecile:

Carm, I saw that PJ Olsson was kicking off his Rock Camp just as I was leaving Houghton earlier this week...
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:09pm nic:

apocalypse 123_really cool
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:11pm tim from champaign:

I heard Houghton has a really good brewpub. Did you check it out Cecile?
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:11pm Carmichael:

@Cecile: Yes, thanks for reminding me. Knew it was coming up. We have conflicting media types. I hate Facebook, and that's about the only way he communicates.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:13pm Cecile:

Tim, I didn't get there, but drank a lot of cans and drafts of the beer while I was up there. The Keweenaw Brewery is indeed a great place with a great patio.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:15pm Fredericks:

Free at last, Fabio?
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:15pm tim from champaign:

Keweenaw Brewing is most excellent. Beer is the only growth industry in Michigan currently!
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:15pm Fredericks:

Love it.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:17pm Cecile:

The beer is finally getting to be available in cans. We can get it at one of the liquor stores near us now.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:21pm tim from champaign:

The big dogs like Bells, Founders, New Holland and Dark Horse are available in down state Illinois but the smaller MI breweries aren't yet. I usually bring back a good haul of smaller MI brews for myself and friends whenever I visit the mitten.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:26pm Cecile:

  Thu. 6/21/12 4:27pm Cecile:

tim, I am amazed how relatively easy it is to find Bell's and Founders around here. They used to be scarce. Not that I mind.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:27pm BSI:

pullah. pullah.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:28pm DCE:

glad to be hearing this
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:30pm hubba:

ah... where's the beef?
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:38pm DCE:

so I had to resort to a year-old can of Coors Light last night...last man left standing in the fridge. And I'm still here today.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:38pm northguineahills:

Amazing how easily one can recognize Derek Bailey, even when you're not paying attention in the other room.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:39pm hubba:

Fabio, what is the recording year on the Moat Recordings?
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:43pm Mark in DC:

Re: Shiny Beast, Gail Zappa put that out. Available from the Zappa Trust.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:43pm fred von helsing:

someone reads pitchfork ?
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:46pm G:

the proofreader? nah, there isn't one
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:46pm Mark in DC:

Sorry, I'm seeing that you can order Shiny Beast but no info that its shipping. Sorry bout that.
  Thu. 6/21/12 4:50pm Cecile:

$5.45 for shipping.
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:02pm Mike East:

I just got all my shit packed up thinking it was 6:00 (quittin' time) and came to terrible realization...
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:04pm Some Flash Dude:

Just a note: It looks like the FMU flash stream URL has changed and the link at the top of your playlist should point to:
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:08pm Some Flash Dude:

... I'm sure Kenzo can help if it's part of a template...
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:10pm Carmichael:

Never heard of Wizz Jones. Kinda Fairporty, Robin Williamsony.
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:18pm Mike East:

speaking of time, anyone going to see The Clock at lincoln center next month?
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:18pm Carmichael:

I just lost home page and audio (128). Back up now, though.
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:22pm Ike:

Since Fabio mentions it: Governors Island is really cool, and anybody in NYC who hasn't checked it out should go.
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:24pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I think ET is playing up here this weekend. I think.
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:24pm Chris from DC:

Yes. This new Eternal Tapestry is fantastic.
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:25pm Chris from DC:

Which is not to say yes they're playing up there Dave. Dunno.
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:26pm G:

@Ike: True. I was there maybe 4 or so years ago, when they first made it accessible to the public. The ferry to get there is right next to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal at Whitehall Street...
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:26pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

  Thu. 6/21/12 5:28pm Arlo:

...where you walk in, you get injected, inspected, detected, infected,
neglected and selected.
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:29pm G:

and rejected?
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:31pm Arlo:

"Kid, I want
you to go and sit down on that bench that says Group W .... NOW kid!!"
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:40pm Carmichael:

".. and I got good and drunk the night before, so I looked and felt my best that day."
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:46pm the Sargeant:

  Thu. 6/21/12 5:48pm G:

No taking target practice on a Clay Pigeon! :-)
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Amon Düül - German hippies, or *innovators* of umlaut-rock...
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Did you eat any cod at Cape Cod? Jus' sayin'...
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:51pm G:

His synposes were firing :-)
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:52pm G:

P Town: My cousin used to run a gay-movie rental place there. Now she does a freeform show at the station up there. :-)
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:52pm the glowing one:

"did you *like* him?"
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:53pm dale:

adam purple was a wierd looking cat, too
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:54pm david:

  Thu. 6/21/12 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Have you mentioned to her the possibility of reading "Gay Porn for the Blind" on her show? ;)
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:54pm Carmichael:

"Where is the Love?"
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:55pm dinatekno:

The 1st Time Ever I Saw Your Face is the Roberta Flack song in the cheesy scene....
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:55pm G:

I'll do that next time she emails, Matt :-)
  Thu. 6/21/12 5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

  Thu. 6/21/12 5:58pm Matt from Springfield:
