Hiya Liz & Lizzeners !
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:04am DCE:

morning, Liz. Missed you for the past coupla weeks. But I'm here now.
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:07am Cheri Pi:

Hello Liz and fellow Bergerians!
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:11am Thierry:

Good afternoon! Absolutely gorgeous, this Anton Batagov. Do you know the rest of his discography well? Is it just as good?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/16/12 9:13am Liz B.:

Hi everyone and welcome! Thierry, this is my first encounter with Anton Batagov, but someone wrote "Russia's Terry Riley" on the CD, so that sounds like a nice endorsement to me.
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:14am Thierry:

Great find, Liz!
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:16am Cheri Pi:

I agree Liz- it was haunting and loopy, the Buddhist references were perfect too as I just rediscovered my Buddha box over the weekend.
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:23am joe supernaut:

Love that Batagov ever since I heard you play it a couple weeks ago. Nice!
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:23am joe supernaut:

Love that Batagov ever since I heard you play it a couple weeks ago. Nice!
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:27am DCE:

this is awesome...who is this mysterious "h." artist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/16/12 9:30am Liz B.:

I'm a big fan of h. Lots of great songs on the FMA:
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:31am DCE:

great, thanks, will do my due diligence!
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:32am Thierry:

I finally found what 'the 35 Buddhas' reminded me of: Lee Ranaldo's 'Shibuya's Displacement' where he records the arrival of the subway train at Tokyo's Shibuya station. Will check h. too.
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:38am dave of geese:

i've been really enjoying the buddhas too, since hearing it on wfmu.i got it off soulseek-- i cant seem to find the actual artifact for sale anywhere though-seems like the kind of thing i'd like a "proper" copy of- anyone seen it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/16/12 9:44am Liz B.:

Batagov 35 Buddhas MP3s on his site:
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:46am dave of geese:

ah thanks Liz
there is no physical incarnation of it then for old people?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/16/12 9:48am Liz B.:

We've got a CD here, Dave of Geese, it's on the Tummo label, dated 2001.
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:57am dave of geese:

ah good- I'm getting one!
  Mon. 7/16/12 9:59am Cecile:

ha, Liz, a friend and I were just talking about Buddha boxes this weekend. I got the iPod app, but it needs some more options like pitch and speed controls. Oh, and me not having crappy headphones.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:01am Cecile:

dave of geese, if you want an actual box,email Liz. I give her my OK to give you my email address. I'd be happy to set mine free.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:01am Cecile:

send me some music and pay postage, and we're set.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:02am Cheri Pi:

We have a local guy in Cincinnati (Rheed Ghazala) who invented circuit bending, he gave a radio interview last night and was talking about different ways to manipulate the Buddha box-mine is the Throbbing Gristle edition so it sounds pretty good w/o too much interference. but why not push it?
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:03am Cheri Pi:

  Mon. 7/16/12 10:04am dave of geese:

ah thanks Cecile-- so you have an actual copy of the cd?
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:06am dave of geese:

i could send you a 3eese cd if you'd like?
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:08am Cecile:

I think Scott did that on his show, too.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:09am Cecile:

no, an actual Buddha box. I don't have the CD.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:09am Cecile:

If that's what you want, s'cool.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:11am northguineahills:

I just have the original FM3 Buddha box. It makes for good dj fodder....
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:13am Cecile:

I am trying to slough off my things that are redundant, not used and are wanted by others. So the Buddha box can go if someone really wants it.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:20am Cecile:

it's so funny to hear the rock music of my young years described as "jams". That usually was reserved for the funk-floorfillers of the day, when we would do the bus stop with onions attached to our belts, which was the fashion of the time.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:23am Thierry:

I am learning about this Buddha box here (where was I all these years?). Has it been a big craze?
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:24am Cecile:

For about 3-4 years, I think. I first heard about it when they were giving them away as fundraiser premiums here on 'FMU.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:25am northguineahills:

No Joy is joyful, has a nice 90s shoegaze appeal to it.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:26am Cheri Pi:

I don't know if it was a craze but it definitely is a fun novelty item to play with- they were for sale at some of the good U.S. record stores a few years ago
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:27am Cecile:

this "rejected" is great. Are they from Ohio? It sounds like it.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:30am DCE:

it's more like an "ohio stink" that gets on ya. anyway, I've not heard of them before, Cecile.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:31am Cecile:

You know it's a very Midwestern tragedy to not want to eat sausages.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:32am Chris from DC:

This is a great set.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:32am Cheri Pi:

I"m ffom Ohio (not originally)-I thought it sounded kinda Awesome Color-ey
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:33am Cecile:

I love this song. It sounds like the Seachers, with very 21st century lyrics
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:33am Cheri Pi:

I needed this Sonny song right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/16/12 10:33am Liz B.:

Scott & Charlene's Wedding are from NZ or Australia.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:34am DCE:

that's just down the street from Ohio...on a universal basis!
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:34am Cheri Pi:

Cecile-your NZ radar is pointing towards Ohio- either way it's win/win :)
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:35am Cecile:

With the Eddy Current Supression Ring and these guys, it seems like the young uns are worshipping Ubu and the Electric Eels instead of the Stooges. Very interesting!
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:37am Cecile:

ha, they also have a song called "gammy leg." lololol
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:37am Cheri Pi:

I had a good old fashioned Ohio people's problem the other night when couldn't decide if I should play Pere Ubu or the Clean- naturally I played both.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:37am DCE:

wow, did Ennio Morricone work on this one with the Fresh and Onlys?
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:38am DCE:

  Mon. 7/16/12 10:38am DCE:

((as if))
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:39am northguineahills:

wait, wut???!! a new Superchunk????!!! What year is it??
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:39am Cheri Pi:

  Mon. 7/16/12 10:41am BSI:

late to the party.
should i have brought beer?
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:42am grubbus:

u should always bring beer! Superchunk rules!
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:42am DCE:

there's a few cans back of the fridge, BSI, but...next time!
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:42am Cheri Pi:

Beer!! sounds good right now BSI- Monday morning shandy?
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:45am BSI:

capital idea! simply capital!
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:49am Cecile:

does anyone know what the reaction to this has been in the Ethiopian community? This is pretty great.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:54am DCE:

now this, this is Ohio. At its stinkiest.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:54am paula pc:

i think this is the wrong speed, or in FMU terms, an "alternate slower speed"
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:55am paula pc:

and I agree with DCE -- and Liz your show is so GREAT today!!! (as always, but more so)
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:56am Cheri Pi:

Yes-that was every Ohio band on every Ohio drug mixed together- nice.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:57am Chris from DC:

Had a pretty nice Belgian ale yesterday that was good for early in the day. Maybe not this early, though.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:57am Jennique:

Does "Si Se Puede" mean "pour the wine"? Because that's what I'm thinking when I hear this.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:59am Cecile:

I think it means if you can...
someone might want to confirm.
  Mon. 7/16/12 10:59am Cheri Pi:

yesterday I had a pint of Flying Horse for breakfast with some cocktail samosas-I had to shop at the Indian carryout due to laziness.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:01am Cecile:

I had gorgeous beers on Saturday - a Fulton summer pilsner and a new beer Steeltoe Provider - a unfiltered ale that was a cross between a belgian beer and a lager. Good stuff. And both breweries are within 10 miles of my house.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:01am northguineahills:

Cool, finally the new Laetitia!
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:02am BSI:

In this climate, it's probably never too early.
...and Viva Laetitia. Always a pleasure.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:03am northguineahills:

@Cecile: yes, I think it means if you're able/can. (depending on context)
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:03am curtis chip:

hi liz,
greets from berlin
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:03am bw:

it is noon somewhere
thanks LB!!!
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:04am Cheri Pi:

That unfiltered beer sounds like heaven Cecile.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:04am northguineahills:

Hanging out w/ you guys are turning me into a tasteful alcoholic (like I wasn't anyways).

Stereolab broke up after Tim and Laetitia broke up :(
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:06am Cecile:

It was really good. We drank it with happy hour poutine and this wonderful nacho-like dish called "deli debris" at Rye Deli in Mpls. It's a perfect resto - a Jewish deli with a deep fryer and a full bar.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:07am Cecile:

They also make canadian faves like smoked meat and poutine.

Re: Scott and Charlene - I found out that it's a Melbourne guy who moved to Brooklyn. Victoria is a suburb of Melbourne.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:07am Cecile:

No kidding! I love Clare!
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:09am Cecile:

I think people who study traditional foodways should be called forklorists.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:09am Chris from DC:

Rodenbach. That's the Belgian I was thinking of. Great stuff.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:11am Cecile:

It was so hot this weekend that I drank four beers over the course of 8 hours on Saturday, and I was wiped out the next day. bummer...
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:12am Thierry:

Your program flies, Liz! Comments captivating! That does it, I'm subscribing to 2 WFMU podcasts: Liz Berg & Beer Hear! !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/16/12 11:16am Liz B.:

Thanks for all the nice words, my fellow forklorists!
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:17am Mike East:

I didn't drink nearly enough beer this weekend. Maybe 3 on Friday, 2 on Saturday...pitiful. Working the weekend really takes away from my enjoyment of life. But on the bright side, I'll have more money to buy better beers.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:24am DCE:

  Mon. 7/16/12 11:24am BSI:

...whereas I'm wondering if a few early-afternoon ales would help with the flowery prose of resume cover-letters over here...? Hm..... a strategy hatcheth!
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:27am joe:

'ello folks
Liz I love the selections of Latin music over the last couple of weeks.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:28am Cheri Pi:

Doo eet BSI! revision is for tomorrow-ville...
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:28am DCE:

that guitar riff there just unleashed everything. I am now complete. For the moment.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:33am Buzbee:

Putting an aspirin in my coke.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:34am Cecile:

BSI, do you have an art website set up?
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:35am Trend-Over-End:

What happened to Polyphonic Spree? 15-minutes up kind of thing?
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:41am BSI:

@cecile: i'm not a web guy but did a down-&-dirty free thing. http://tinyurl.com/7jw4rnh -- figure i'll try for more magazine stuff and/or music freelance, what the hell. It ain't very elegant but it's something.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:42am BSI:

BTW: brilliant set, Liz. And show. Me diggy.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:45am Cecile:

Wow, impressive!
I'm sure you're going to find something toot sweet.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:47am D in Miami:

BSI, that's some nice work! Good morning all!
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:47am DCE:

love the "music packaging" section, BSI
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:48am Mike East:

yeah, negative space art is top notch.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:50am BSI:

thanks folks. Got a couple of other cd covers for The Muffins that need to join the pile. My problem is I end up doing those for friends, gratis, since I love the music. Helps the portfolio but it don't buy daddy no beer!
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:50am Cheri Pi:

Well, I'm not going to tha YooPee this summer, I need a break from my family.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:52am BSI:

Tackle a moose!
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:53am Cecile:

Aw, that's too bad, Cheri.
  Mon. 7/16/12 11:58am Cheri Pi:

Yeah-they're all being especially crazy (in a bad way) this time of year. Will miss those sunsets on the lake...
  Mon. 7/16/12 12:01pm Cecile:

well, you gotta watch out for your own sanity.
  Mon. 7/16/12 12:26pm Sara:

thanks for the show, was waking up to it
  Tue. 9/15/15 8:03am Barry Hobby:

Listening to old shows, probably no one goes back and reads new comments on old shows, but just in case - the original version of the ProleteR song was one of my father's favorites by the Mills brothers from I think the late 40's
