Options September 13, 2012: Failure exists in relation to goals...
Failure exists in Relation to goals. Nature has no goals and so can't fail. Humans have goals, and so they have to fail. Often the wonderful configurations produced by failure reveal the pettiness of the goals. Of course we have to go on striving for success, otherwise we could not genuinely fail. If Buster Keaton wasn't genuinely trying to put up his house it wouldn't be funny when it falls down on him. - Cornelius Cardew

  Thu. 9/13/12 3:23pm paula pc:

fabio this is WONDERFUL
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:24pm stefan:

Really enjoying this Cornelius Cardew.
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:29pm DCE:

another life of works I need to study up on...the homework never ends on WFMU.
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:30pm Looms:

  Thu. 9/13/12 3:32pm kat330:

@Looms: Double your audio pleasure and run two streams of this at once.

Hello, Fabio and Fabio fans!
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:32pm Looms:

Hign on Failuranum Fabiosidium, of course....
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:32pm alberto:

@looms ;)
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:35pm Cecile:

Fabs, who won the other week in the DJ battle?
I think Clay was throwing it as bad as Kurt G. in the Prince/Temptations duel
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:36pm Looms:

@Kat: looking forward to listening to this on a 5.1 audio stream.
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:37pm common:

i love the fellini one with terrence stamp!
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:38pm kat330:

That, too, Looms, that, too. :)
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:40pm DCE:

is that the source of the whole "failure" concept of this show?
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:41pm kat330:

I was wondering that as well.
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:43pm Cheri Pi:

My left ear-bud just failed. new earbuds!
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:43pm nic:

cornelius really beautiful & tom really great
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:44pm paula pc:

@ cecile -- I had to leave when Clay pulled out that King Crimson, which nearly tied it up for me!
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:45pm kat330:

I sort of thought we informally gave the music duel to Fabio and the DJ patter duel to Clay.
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:49pm kat330:

'Course the ultimate winners were us listeNerds.
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:54pm tim from champaign:

Sounds like some old Bill Burroughs?
  Thu. 9/13/12 3:55pm nyoukis:

from new British Library disk with Gysin?
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:04pm hubba:

what is this breezy, coastal guitar jam? Oh, hello Fabio and fellow failures.
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:05pm Cheri Pi:

I dig these Pyramidion kids, which BTW the names refers to the top tip of a pyramid;
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:05pm andymorphic:

  Thu. 9/13/12 4:09pm Medici Giraffe:

Where can I get a hold of this?
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:16pm kat330:

It seems Finnish, Soimaan Sana Voi, but it's not translating smoothly.
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:18pm hubba:

Yeah, that cutting/reintroducing process sounds amazing... I'll be enjoying pizza at my kid's open house. so there, take that Philip Jeck...
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:19pm Das Librarian:

Wasn't Chris Watson on the early Cabaret Voltaire albums, or are we just talking Touch?
Avatar    Thu. 9/13/12 4:27pm fabio:

he was. same person.
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:27pm DCE:

I saw Guardian Alien a few weeks ago. Not as impressive live, but pretty good. Drummer was amazing.
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:32pm hubba:

just saw this impressive SF line-up for the Thrill Jockey 20 years anniversary show: Wooden Shjips, Liturgy, Man Forever, Eternal Tapestry, Barn Owl, and Trans Am... I might actually leave the old Lazy Boy that weekend.
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:34pm hubba:

free-form Jane's Addiction? I'll shut up now, lunch is over...
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:35pm DCE:

that song sure sounded like it, hubba.
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:41pm Cheri Pi:

Wow Fabio today is a totally rocking out day of failure!!
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:46pm DCE:

everything I've ever heard by Tomutonttu has blown my mind completely.
  Thu. 9/13/12 4:50pm Greg:

  Thu. 9/13/12 4:58pm joe fom LA:

fund drive promo idea: ammo as premium
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:00pm joe fom LA:

@ Fab... You and Clay make my Thursday!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:04pm Philo Gristle:

Kat asked me to confirm whether that Pyramidion song title was Finnish, and though the words are, it doesn't really make sense... "To Sing a Word May"
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:23pm kat330:

Wilson's "The Outsider" is a must-read teenage rite of passage -- along the lines of "Catcher in the Rye."
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:24pm Jack:

Favorite Colin Wilson book = "The Mind Parasites". HP Lovecraft meets Carl Jung.
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:25pm kat330:

Now *that's* a nice meeting in my book, Jack.
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:26pm Jack:

I'd forgotten about "The Outsider". That was a deep book when I was young(er).
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:28pm Philo Gristle:

I always enjoyed his championing T. C. Lethebridge (and thus inspiring Julian Cope).... I think Strength to Dream went nonfictionally into Lovecraft & Jung.
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:33pm kat330:

Parmegiani and Cappelli (eh, Capellini) at the top -- reminding me I need to start on dinner. TY, Fabio! Still listening while I cook though.
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:36pm Jack:

more Colin Wilson:
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:45pm Philo Gristle:

@Jack Thanks -- that site looks loaded with interesting info!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Clay's a Whizz at Bacon!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:52pm Brainiac:

Susan Ciani voiced my talking pinball machine (Xenon) in 1979 or 1980.
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Also...Flash stream is back up! Thanks Liz B!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:54pm kata:

love the 'radio zing' of Clay
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:54pm thomas:

clay should try doing a whole show like this!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:54pm Brainiac:

It's not too soon to start saying "Rocktober!"
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:55pm kata:

howdy people.
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Fabio vs. Clay IV! [John] Cage Match!

POWER! Dishwasher detergent!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Shock And AWEtober, as we called it last year!
Howdy kata!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:56pm MenfussMike:

i love FOGHAT.....they got their name from playing Scrabble
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:56pm kat330:

[in-between kitchen and LR] Hi, Matt & Kata! See ya (eventually) on the flip side!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:57pm Cecile:

nice, brainiac.
Back in the day, Suzanne showed up on on a New Age label. But then again, a lot of uncategorizable instrumental artists would show up on New Age labels. The Necks first record was on Private Music.
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

The Amon Düël!!
  Thu. 9/13/12 5:58pm Cecile:

that was in the U.S., to clarify.
  Sun. 9/16/12 3:41pm Mr Doe:

spettacolo fantastico, Sr Fabio. Been listening avidly to FMU for over 20 yrs, and your show now and then, but as I grow up, I keep coming back more to your show. Love love love the limitless range of sound you present. THANKS
  Sun. 9/16/12 9:44pm fabio:
