I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Pork Queen, mmmm ... I shall dine upon pork for my luncheon.

HANDS OFF, YOU!

There's nobody else at work, so I'm blasting this.

I kneel at your alter. Bring forth the beans. My can opener is magnificent and its name is Nat Kang Coal.

*bagpipe party
  Fri. 12/21/12 12:33pm George of Troy:

How is everyone's apocalypse going?
  Fri. 12/21/12 12:35pm Sandy in Houston:

I liked the last apocalypse better.
  Fri. 12/21/12 12:42pm Carmichael:

It's 9:45 in the morning and still dark here. How am I supposed to see the bloody thing?
  Fri. 12/21/12 12:42pm oule:

...no more wine: it's apérocalypse
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:00pm Mike East:

can you play Wind of Change by the Beegees? I woke up with that in my head. Otherwise, these bagpipes will be just fine. Thanks.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:03pm still b/p:

Adding the word "party" to "bagpipe" is redundant, I'm sure.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:05pm BSI:

Whereas adding "bagpipe" to anything = PARTY.
Avatar    Fri. 12/21/12 1:07pm bryce:

eczema BAGPIPE!

That's one of the two equations describing how the universe works.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:09pm jdelz:

the time is just flying by
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:11pm Carmichael:

It started raining like a bastard here about 5 minutes ago. Dark clouds, huge thunder and the sounds of bagpipes.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:11pm Cecile:

I would like to hear Mele Kalikamaka or bagpipes.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:15pm Cecile:

also, the King by Steeleye Span was a traditional carol that accompanyied carollers carrying a dead robin in a box as a token of winter
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:15pm Thom Yorke:

Is This A Genre?
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:16pm BSI:

gah, Cecile, earworm now deployed.
Avatar    Fri. 12/21/12 1:17pm bryce:

stop making bee gees jokes!
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:17pm Cecile:

the Cherry Tree Carol is also darkly hilarious. Shirley collins does a great version
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:18pm Cecile:

it's the Hawaaian way of driving you insaner, BSI.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:18pm BSI:

sew up your horse's hide, and bring some drink to me...
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:19pm BSI:

not the same thing but equally festive(?)
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:24pm chris m.:

"Tracy! Stop putting those drumsticks up your nose! You don't know where they've been."
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:30pm common:

this is nice and insane
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:33pm steve:

bryce Xmas show delivers!
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:36pm steve:

do you have any Christmas music made exclusively with cheese or vegetables?
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:37pm still b/p:

Any Williams used to do this number every year on his Christmas specials.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:38pm still b/p:

Andy...not just Any...
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:38pm Carmichael:

Just before he gave the cookie to the bear.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:39pm (dead?) Looms:

12-21-2012, 19:38 PM
OH MY GOD! IT'S THE END OF THE Week and work for me now.
HOLIDAYS!!!! :)
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:43pm Looms:

aoutch! meant 7:38 PM (when will the 24 hours finally used on clocks in the US?)
Avatar    Fri. 12/21/12 1:43pm bryce:

steve, people that make music exclusively on vegetables or cheese seem mostly secular. it makes no sense.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:44pm Carmichael:

We can't figure out the metric system, Looms. Don't ask us to count past 12.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:45pm Looms:

he he, I knew that ;)
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:47pm Cecile:

Looms, police, computers, media traffic contol people, internet bulletin boards and the military in the US use the 24 hour clock.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:47pm Carmichael:

Aren't Parson Sound and Trad Gras och Stenar basically the same people?

  Fri. 12/21/12 1:53pm Carmichael:

Oh yeah, international harvester.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:54pm Cheri Pi:

I missed commenting on Pärson Sound ! "Pärson Sound!!"
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:55pm steve:

damn... those veggies sound incredible.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:55pm Cheri Pi:

Yes Carms, they're the same.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:56pm Looms:

@Cecile: I didn't knew that. AM means "after midday", right? PM could mean "past midnight" so it's kind of a problem for brainless francophone dudes like myself.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:57pm DCE:

ante meridium and post meridium, I believe, Looms
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:58pm Cecile:

No, AM means ante meridian - before noon. PM means post meridian - after noon.
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:58pm DCE:

I spake Anglishish
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:58pm Looms:

I'll keep it in mind. Let's cook...
  Fri. 12/21/12 1:59pm Cecile:

meridium, I stand corrected.
it still means noon.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:00pm DCE:

I'm in the very awkward position at work of having lots to get done by the end of the year but having to wait on everybody else before I can go any further.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:01pm BSI:

OR, "Articulate Marmoset" and "Palpable Mayonnaise," if you want to live in my head for a minute.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:02pm Andrew Waterloo:

I was at work but after running into some issues my boss turned around and said, well then lets just go home.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:03pm northguineahills:

Brast Burn, how did I miss that!
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:03pm nic:

crazy great show_glad the world is still here
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:04pm DCE:

BSI, that's my favorite kind of mayonnaise! I don't like the stuff you can't feel.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:18pm Sartre:

@DCE: Hell is other people.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:19pm BSI:

Mayonnaise must be felt to be believed. Bryce knows this instinctively. To this day, bewildered sandwiches follow him in a trance, like desert nomads guided by a star, intoxicated by the mammoth promise of DESTINY.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:19pm BSI:

I have no idea what I'm saying. It's clearly time to go.

  Fri. 12/21/12 2:27pm northguineahills:

Phil Ochs on Bryce, I shouldn't be surprised. Awesome!
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:32pm Ike:

BSI, you get a sparkly gold star for typing about bewildered sandwiches. That is true poetry that should be entacle into stone for the oozing tentacled alien archeologists to find in the unimaginably distant future in their futile search for more info on Mae West and Pope Innocent III.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:34pm Irwin:

Electronics on the Ochs recording by Joseph Byrd of the United States of America (Columbia recording artists, 1968).
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:36pm Cecile:

those sounds sounded familiar, Irwin!
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:38pm northguineahills:

That does explain a lot, Irwin!
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:39pm Irwin:

Pleasures is Och's weirdest album, and includes contributions by several arrangers. It's not a "folk" album in any generic sense of the word. Might also be his best-seller because of the topical song "Small Circle of Friends," which got lots of airplay back in the day.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:40pm phat:

What? A freak-folkie I don't hate? Amazing.
Avatar    Fri. 12/21/12 2:40pm bryce:

love that song too

And Bryce, baby — will you fix that typo already (The Crucifixopm)? It's making me agitated because I can't go in and fix it myself.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:45pm still b/p:

Connection failing repeatedly. Listening to Everyone's Gone to the Moon on an AM radio. Holidays ruined.

  Fri. 12/21/12 2:45pm northguineahills:

I read the Schumacher bio on Ochs about 4 years back, and didn't recall the Byrd contribution. Must turn 180 degrees in my chair to reinvestigate.
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:46pm northguineahills:

My favorite Estonian holy minimalist!
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:47pm Ike:

Speaking of typos, I typed "entacle" for "etched" above. So, happy h3typdys!
  Fri. 12/21/12 2:49pm BSI:

Also, Bryce, belated thanks for playing that J-C Eloy piece last time. It did something catastrophic to my head, & I'll be happily sifting through the wreckage up there for a long time. Bless y'all.

thank the label for sending those discs to us! 4-disc set in a post-promo era.....
