Where IS everyone? :) Back after a bite of lunch.
  Fri. 7/27/12 11:58am listener james from westwood:

^^^ peeking over the wall at the mention of lunch!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:01pm Brian in UK:

When it's lunch time in NJ it's dog walking time over here.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:01pm Carmichael:

I'm here, I'm here ...
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:02pm northguineahills:

I'm on two message boards, GTDS and this one, but that's not uncommon.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:03pm duke:

What's for lunch?
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:03pm northguineahills:

Holy crap, a new Dr. John!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:03pm Erol in Texas:

Great to hear u , again!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:05pm Matt from Springfield:

And awaaaaaaaaay we go!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:05pm trish:

a few extra temporal dimensions, too, maybe?
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:06pm Van in DC:

  Fri. 7/27/12 12:06pm northguineahills:

Now to see if Searching for Sugar Man is on Netflix. Was disappointed last night that Hidden Fortress is no longer available for instant stream.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:06pm listener james from westwood:

o yea! doin' my steinski in-theme dance!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:06pm listener james from westwood:

(it's not a very well-coordinated affair.)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:06pm kat330:

@Brian: Yes! Heard Kermode's review yesterday, AAMOF. [Also interrupted by breaking news -- geez, you Brits have a lot of breaking news!;) ]
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:08pm kat330:

[that was a carry-over from a comment you left on GTDS]
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@LJFW: In-theme dance however you wish! (As long as no one's looking...)
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:09pm Doug Schulkind:

I just flew over and boy are my fingers tired.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:11pm joe:

Damn this place fills up quick. I know you, I know you, I don't know you, Owww you I want to know.
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:11pm Doug Schulkind:

The opening four-song sequence of today's Steinski show is particularly inspired, methinks. You will thinks, too, methinks.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:12pm listener james from westwood:

@Matt, it's between me, the screen, and the plants! and the plants get a vote when they begin doing some of the work around here. lazy bastards.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:12pm Van in DC:

What's the old saying? Sing like nobody's listening, dance like nobody's looking...?
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:13pm kat330:

Save some of those moves for tomorrow, LJfW: It's international dance day.

Ahhhh!! Coward! :>
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:13pm Doug Schulkind:

Just don't dance in the shower. Or, at least, pick up the soap first.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:14pm listener james from westwood:

no worries; the shower is where i listen to npr and curse at current events!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:15pm kat330:

Those wonderful, internal rhymes -- Noel could take on today's rappers with both hands tied behind his back.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:15pm Van in DC:

@Kat330 - well today I guess is "Free Kiss Day" ...it's been trending on Twitter, anyways
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@LJFW: Haven't gotten the plants to do copy-editing yet? ;)
Noel Coward, blink and you'll miss him! Bruz Fletcher even more so..
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:16pm Matt from Springfield:

"Lobachevsky"! Blast from the past!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:16pm kat330:

I didn't realize Simmons, et al, were in jail?! ;)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:16pm listener james from westwood:

nah, they keep applying ap style when i want apa style. it's hopeless.
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:16pm Doug Schulkind:

I would just bet that Noel and Flavor Flav would've hit it off.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:16pm kat330:

But seriously, who charges for a kiss, anyway, except as fundraising at a fair or something.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:17pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey - that tiny sample about eating a lobster - I gave that to Steinski!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Speaking of catching up on GTDS:
@Van: Have you finished moving? Everything settled now?
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:17pm Doug Schulkind:

There's an apa for that.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:19pm northguineahills:

Tom Lehrer taught mathematics at MIT, I did not know that.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:19pm Van in DC:

@Matt - still settling in but the move is over :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:19pm Matt from Springfield:

21 Dodge models in 3 series! ... All of which will be obsolete by this September.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:20pm listener james from westwood:

and he wrote tunes for seasme street. the "silent e" song, for instance.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:21pm kat330:

@Van: You moved again?! Your first one was about where I joined this here commenting community, and that wasn't that many months ago. Maybe you're taking your first name too literally?
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:22pm listener james from westwood:

well this is a well-timed show tune. and the answer is of course, poker's more important. at least i know how much each lie's gonna cost me.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Good ol' Tom Lehrer, big mathematician/and educational song writer.

I have a quote of his on my desk:
"Eating an orange / While making love / Makes for bizarre enj- / -oyment thereof." :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:23pm Van in DC:

@kat330 - ha, good one :) Yes, that first move was a big one, from Dallas to DC. This one last week was just a few miles, to a much bigger & nicer apt. :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:24pm trish:

@ljfw also, you don't need a pr firm to play
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:24pm Doug Schulkind:

Stay tuned for the first-ever A Rough Mix concert calendar. A must-hear.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:25pm kat330:

@Matt: that quote reminds me of one of George's scenes in "Seinfeld." Eating a sandwich, not an orange.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:25pm Van in DC:

With a nickname like Doo Doo, he doesn't take any crap I'm assuming
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:29pm Webhamster Henry:

The old Citizen Kafka show had calendar entries like this too!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:30pm Van in DC:

lol at the Roaches / Black Flag
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:30pm kat330:

  Fri. 7/27/12 12:31pm Matt from Springfield:

(Standing O!!!) Bravo Steinski!
Especially liked the Election Year concert at the Washington Monument lineup! :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:31pm Van in DC:

I'll stick with Nicola Benedetti at the WolfTrap tomorrow :)
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:31pm Doug Schulkind:

It's a good bet that that was an homage to Kafka. Steinski used to host record-collector salons at which Kafka was a regular attendee.

Wait a minute...You were at those salons, too, no?!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:31pm Matt from Springfield:

"First-ever" concert calendar? Did he do more of these, Doug?
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:33pm Doug Schulkind:

I'm pretty sure last-ever, too.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Aw MAN! :(
But, if Citizen Kafka did those, I oughta check to see if there are Archives available for him!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:37pm northguineahills:

Wait, wait. How come I don't have this Albert Ayler record (or even heard of it.)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:38pm Matt from Springfield:

"Secret Museum of the Air with Citizen Kafka and Pat Conte"? Is that the one? There are some RealAudio Archives of that.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:39pm Webhamster Henry:

@Doug - that's right - I was at some of those!
@Matt - those would have been on Kafka's WBAI show, but some of that material has resurfaced on the now annual Kakfa tribute shows that Irene hosts. If you haven't heard the Kafka qua Kafka, you are in for a treat!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:40pm joe:

Wasn't Silent E for the Electic Company? Not being a nit picker just been question my memory alot lately.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:40pm Brian in UK:

£27m opening ceremony. I confess to having trouble with that number. Lionel Messi's left knee.

We went to Kafka Museum when we was in Prague recently. His nickname was 'Chuckles'. Just kidding.
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 12:43pm Doug Schulkind:

Kafka and Conte moved their Secret Museum of the Air over to WFMU from WBAI for a while. R.I.P. Citizen K.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:44pm Brian in UK:

joe move to a single storey dwelling then you will never have to worry what you come upstairs for?
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Henry! Have to keep that on my WFMU radar, sounds great!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:45pm kat330:

@joe: I hear you. I get weary of fact-checking on the interwebs everything I want to say. I'm resorting to just adding "IIRC" to everything I type and let others supply corrections. :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:47pm kat330:

Brian, the dangling comment for you whilst you were a-walkin the dog was WRT the Sugar Man link you left on the other side. Kermode gave it a big thumbs up.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:47pm Van in DC:

Olympics - just saw something about the British being the only ones with A/C in their dorms. Wow.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:47pm joe:

@kat330 I like that :) I may have to adopt that.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:48pm Webhamster Henry:

Tom Lehrer, and now Stan Freberg. Both still alive!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:48pm Matt from Springfield:

HOMOGENIZED milk?! Getting a little big for our britches, aren't we housewives?!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:49pm Van in DC:


  Fri. 7/27/12 12:50pm kat330:

Home court advantage indeed.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@Henry: That is correct! Also didn't know Stan had his own radio show. This is great!
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:51pm trish:

But, uh, -- aren't they all staying in British dorms?
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:53pm northguineahills:

When the high in London is 75F/24C and the low is 54F/12C, you don't need A/C
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:54pm kat330:

Did everyone's volume just get a boost?
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:55pm kat330:

Heard they passed out 120,000+ condoms, so someone's expecting some heat in the dorms.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:55pm joe:

It's a shame G Love gets lumped in to be classified with some pretty bad music as I think he and the Special Sauce are a great group. They were wonderful when I finally got to see them a few years back.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:56pm kat330:

This one gets played a lot locally, Joe.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:56pm Brian in UK:

Two turntables & a microphone
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:58pm northguineahills:

I saw G Love and Spe.cial Sauce open for the Violent Femmes in 1994.

Oh, I saw Beck in the Catskills July 2, in Deleware County, NY during a private party/fireworks extravaganza w/ about 600 people. He was just hanging out.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:58pm Van in DC:

Well, thanks Doug & Steinski! Enjoy the weekend everybody - I'm gonna walk across the street to the National Mall and look for that concert Steinski mentioned happening at the Monument :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:58pm joe:

That's cool. I know in my area Cold Beverages has become one of those defacto bar b q drinking songs although most of the folks who sing along could not tell you who it is. :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:58pm Brian in UK:

Looking forward the Steinski DVD.
  Fri. 7/27/12 12:59pm kat330:

Good eve and g'day to youse all! Have a fine weekend, too. Till the next time....
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 1:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Have an Olympic-sized weekend, Van! Stay cool, kat330 (and not just because that would mean the cool would be headed eastward.)
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:00pm joe:

I'm not going to admit to who I saw G Love with. But my wife was a fan of that band, tickets very cheap and the location was very cool. :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:00pm joe:

Take care all.
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:01pm Matt from Springfield:

All hail the return of Steinski's mixes! Thanks Doug!
Have a good weekend everyone!

@Van: Awesome! See if there's now a band that incorporates "Obama" into their name :)

Joe, freeform means never having to say your sorry. Guilty pleasures are to be exalted.
Avatar    Fri. 7/27/12 1:02pm Doug Schulkind:

Did Don Knotts just say, "Gefilte, the wonder fish" ??
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:02pm joe:

@ Thanks Doug
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:02pm listener james from westwood:

@joe: you are indeed correct; that was from electric co. at least one other song, too. gotta stop working and listening at the same time.
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:02pm kat330:

My name Jose Jimenez...
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:03pm kat330:

Thanks, Doug!
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:03pm listener james from westwood:

aaagh, a client call lost me about 20 min of the show. will hit the archives. loved what i heard, doug!
don knotts would know from fish, he having been the incredible mister limpet and all.
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:03pm joe:

@Listener James my advice just stop working period it will weigh much better on your soul in the long run. :)
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:04pm Van in DC:

ha ha, funny stuff. And I'm gonna merge Linens & Things with Bed, Bath, & Beyond and call it Things from Beyond
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:04pm Webhamster Henry:

This bit was also written by Bill Dana: http://www.echonyc.com/~jhhl/Mp3/bbdoz.mp3

It's been a blast, see y'all!

Thanks for hanging with me, everyone. See y'all back here at 6pm Tuesday. And by "here" I really mean...over...there.
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:05pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks Doug! Why are the 90s a blast from the past?
  Fri. 7/27/12 1:07pm Van in DC:
