Today's topic reminds me of the Tower label biker movie soundtrack, Born Losers. Very nice cover to the album.

Martin Mull did a song a few decades ago called Loser's Samba. It'll make you want to jump off the roof.

Dick Curless!
  Thu. 1/10/13 12:21pm Katya Oddio:

Have you read yet WFMU engineer Justin Colletti's piece about the controversy over unpaid internships? The industries that abused the young are losers who lost out on the services, innovation, loyalty, and drive of young workers.

  Thu. 1/10/13 12:21pm Tower:

Dick Curless also had lots of 45's and LP's on the Tower label. This one's a Capitol release though.

They're just a buncha losers, kat330. (In other words, my people.)
Avatar Thu. 1/10/13 12:32pm kat330:

Ray Wylie Hubbard performed a narrative on last night's Letterman to prove how a loser can really turn things around to win in the end. To paraphrase the song's ending: "Every day in which your gratitude is higher than your expectations will be a good day."

Spending nine and a half hours sitting on a train is not doing wonders for my back. I am applying Charlie's show to it topically and it's helping bigtime.

Brooklyn Dodgers radio announcer Red Barber used to always use the phrase "in the catbird seat" to describe a team or player being in an advantageous or beneficial position. This program's for dogbirds everywhere.

@kat Yes it is:)
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@Kat: I've determined that those in favor of "mollusk" as a word for "cool" should use it amongst each other, and explain it. Then gradually expand the circle of Mollusk-speakers! :)

Incidentally what is "kiitos"? Like a kudos?
Avatar Thu. 1/10/13 1:17pm kat330:

"True, pride comes before a fall" -- on my very lo-fi poodle transistor radio, I always thought that lyric was something in French.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@Anchovy: I hope the previous comment explains? Mollusk = cool. Since there's only so many words to use for "cool", kat and Philo coined "mollusk" as another way to express that :)
Avatar Thu. 1/10/13 1:19pm kat330:

@Matt: It's Finnish "Thanks!" Others in the philo-kat lexicon are "bocoors" for "but of course," and "miguel" for "might well" as in, "that miguel be true, but I couldn't possibly say."
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: I don't hear very well, especially interpreting components of mumbled/garbled sound. If I was transistor reliant, EVERYTHING would sound like French to me.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:22pm Doug S.:

I wish Amtrak would make it a little mollusker in my car.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Interesting, glad you expanded the lexicon! I saw "bocoors" before, I thought it was French beaucours or something like that. "Miguel" is like a figurative spelling of an individual's pronunciation. Like I recently coined "Zmatter of fact" because that's how I've always said it!
Avatar Thu. 1/10/13 1:23pm kat330:

How could that be necessary, Doug -- you're already the molluskest!
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: There isn't a Mollusk Car on your train? Amtrak's doing a trial program where they have a chill lounge car called the Mollusk Car. Which, also serves a menu of shellfish and lobster bisque, naturally.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:25pm Doug S.:

My New Year's resolution was to be less shellfish.

@Katya: IIRC, you're a FMA curator, yes? So does that mean you comb the interwebs for music to add; or only create music yourself to upload; or people know to bring their music to you? [probably a bit of all the above]
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, thanks Katya! I'm always in the market for "outsider" music. Did you write the description for that entry?

Kat, yes x 4. Matt, no. Ergo Phizmiz did. He has a FANTASTIC catalog and several side projects on the FMA.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:38pm Katya Oddio:

Matt, if you like kids performing, may I suggest a pet project Kazoomzoom?
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: 4 yeses to 1 no? I'm such a loser... ;)
Avatar Thu. 1/10/13 1:40pm kat330:

Thanks, Katya!

Matt, you gotta pepper 'em with questions to better your odds.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:40pm Katya Oddio:

Gah, I'm such a loser for phrasing it like that. No one will ever love me, if I keep it up. ;D
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Psapp is great, excellent arrangements too! But then again I'm such a psapp for keyboards and tape loops.

And thanks for the other link Katya! Everyone wins, with children's recordings!
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Gotta spread out a number of questions--just keep shooting buckshot until I hit something! :)

Sure wish I could have found a local children's choir to perform my contest entry. Would've been so much more mollusk that way.

That David Holmes sounds A LOT like Gainesbourg.

I haven't seen Noah (Retard Riot) Since 2008.
Avatar Thu. 1/10/13 1:46pm kat330:

This Holmes bed music suggests some ambivalence between the track and album titles.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:47pm Katya Oddio:

Awww! And with all our hearts we will ALWAYS never love you, loser Martha!
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:47pm Katya Oddio:

Kat, the birthday song contest?

Hello! Here's one... mediamogul.seas.upenn.edu...

One of my great radio regrets: I had Laura Veirs booked to perform on my show soon after her Carbon Glacier record came out. On that album, she does a song called "Snow Camping" on which a choir of children sing. The same day as Laura's appearance on my show, a group of school kids from Hoboken was visiting WFMU and I was going to endeavor to have them sing with Laura on Snow Camping, but Laura called and cancelled at the last minute. Oh well. What a loser.

@charlie: After all the "My Dick" Amanda played yesterday, there is NAUGHT too puerile for GTDR! ;D

Oh, hi, Vicki -- yes, thank you.

I have lots of Uwe Schmidt as Senior Coconut and Atom tm.

@Katya: Yep, here: freemusicarchive.org...

Aww, Doug, that is the opposite of mollusk. :, Had you already done a lot of rehearsing with them?
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:52pm Katya Oddio:

Cool, Kat!!!

Vicki, think first hearing of "Nobody Loves U" was via a Frenchman on this show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/10/13 1:52pm Vicki:

Oh did you have it lined up already?!
Avatar Thu. 1/10/13 1:52pm kat330:

Hey, there's nothing more bracing than a good hard cry from time to time.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:53pm Doug S.:

No. It was all a grand idea that never had the chance to gel. I was going to surprise Laura with a gaggle of kids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/10/13 1:53pm Vicki:

oh yes - nice playlist katja
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:54pm listener james from westwood:

some of those judy garland tapes really make for rough listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/10/13 1:55pm charlie:

No, Vicki, I had the "drug attic" track cued up :)
But I've played it a lot before....
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:55pm ndbob:

excellent show Charlie!
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:55pm Katya Oddio:

Wish Judy was still with us punching it out like Wanda is.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:55pm listener james from westwood:

not sure who i want more to provide the score for the film version of my life: air, david holmes, or the whitefield bros. maybe all 3. air can take my flintstone-vitamin-addled 1970s.
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:55pm Brian in UK:

Was that a giggle of kids. See you later baked potata.
Nice one, Charlie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/10/13 1:56pm Vicki:

ah! The whole of Stifled Love is a loser album
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Great one, Vicki!

Love this Wanda Jackson!
  Thu. 1/10/13 1:57pm northguineahills:

I love losing this set, Charlie.

It's a wonder any of us survive.

Loved every last note, sigh, and bawl, Charlie! Thank you!

May not see y'all next week, so everyone have a great week and keep your daily gratitude higher than your daily expectations! :)
