Hi, Doug and drummers to come! Philo and I are listening and will be at keyboards somewhat late.

evening Doug, Kat, Philo everyone.

looking forward to a Tak Shindo hour!

I don't need any excuse to play Tak Shindo.

Oh good, when I first opened the screen, I thought the stands were marked "Tax Shelter". 'Tis the season and all.

Just in "South Pacific," nothing here but Happy Tak!

Hey there, ndbob! Doug!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:13pm kat330:

Heya, Bob and all! OK, we're sort of at keyboard attention. We had a convergence of things all at once to deal with including a slightly sliced finger. But all's bandaged and well now. :)
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:14pm Philo Gristle:

Tak so mycket, Doug! Howdy doo, everybody!
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:14pm Doug Schulkind:

Sliced Finger. Sounds like one of the punk bands Pat Duncan used to have on his show back in the '90s.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:15pm kat330:

Harry Shearer uses McKuen's "Songs of the Warm" for his weekly Le Show's environmental updates. Just FYI.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:16pm kat330:

Philo informs me ta(c)k so mycket means "thank you very much" in Swedish.

is parks and rec worth watching? i've never seen it.

Donner le Batteur Certain!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:18pm kat330:

@glenn: Uneven as most things are on TV, but it's a tight ensemble of actors. The local Hoosier politics provides me with an extra kick.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:19pm kat330:

Or, wait, I think it's actually "Listen to the Warm" by McKuen.
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:19pm Doug Schulkind:

I've never seen it neither, Glenn. We left our TV back in Brooklyn.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:21pm Philo Gristle:

@glenn I skip it often, but it's usually amusing when I do catch it. Not a huge fan of sitcoms in general, so YMMV.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:21pm Parq:

Glenn, I came home one night to find my kid and her BF making their way through a full-season DVD, and I ended up see two or three episodes. It's fine for a sitcom, and if that sounds like tepid praise to you, you're not mistaken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:23pm northguineahills:

Actually, I really dig Parks and Recreation. I was skeptical at first, but it really is darn funny. The last season was a little sappy, but still off-kilter. All available on Netflix. I watch almost all of my "TV" these days online on whatever device is convenient. (My TV teevee is about 15 year old cube which mostly serves as furniture [or to watch PBS]).
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:23pm glenn:

first off, i refuse to watch anything new that has a laugh track. and i refuse to watch anything with charlie sheen in it. and that doesn't leave much.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:25pm ndbob:

@NGH same here - don't even have my TV hooked up now
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:26pm Doug Schulkind:

Good evening NGH. How's it hanging?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:26pm kat330:

@glenn: No laugh track and no Sheen on P & R. I imagine you've seen "The IT Crowd"? It's become our fave 23 minutes of comedy on Hulu.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:27pm glenn:

no. i'm presently watching borgen. it's a danish political thingy, and it's excellent.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:27pm Philo Gristle:

Addendum to above: IT Crowd HAS a laugh track, and DESPITE it I tend to at least chuckle, and sometimes tear up with laughter.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:28pm kat330:

Brass and Bamboo -- mollusk album title.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:28pm ndbob:

and a fine LP:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:29pm northguineahills:

Still waiting for an eternity to getting the ok to start the job. It's a wee bit annoying, but otherwise, everything is relatively much nicer.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:29pm ndbob:

sounds good NGH!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:30pm glenn:

tonight i'm watching searching for sugarman.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:31pm kat330:

@glenn: I suppose it would be "Bergen" if it were Norwegian. Speaking of the Scands, we saw Bergman's "Summer Interlude" over the weekend and saw Sugarman *last* weekend. It's a delight.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:31pm Philo Gristle:

@glenn I'm sure I've mentioned the greatest tv comedy show ever (only slightly exaggerating), which was ripped off (and never to my knowledge acknowledged) by Ricky Gervais and The Office: Ken Finkleman's NEWSROOM (not to be confused with the other show that ripped off its title recently).

@NGH That's excellent news!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:33pm ndbob:

I'd really like to see Searching for Sugarman - I found a Rodriguez LP once - and had no idea who he was
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:34pm kat330:

@ngh: I don't think it's Petty to note that "The Waiting Is the Hardest Part." ;)
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:34pm Philo Gristle:

Really loving these exotica sounds.... need to dig out my Yma Sumac and Martin Denny....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:35pm Jeff Golick:

Enjoyed this immensely, Doug! My maiden voyage with Tak Shindo. Gotta run, but was glad I could stop by for a spell. Good week to all!
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:35pm Doug Schulkind:

We watched Sugarman last week. I enjoyed it except for one thing that annoyed me.

@Philo Gristle
If you dig exotic sounds, go spend five hours here:
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:35pm kat330:

@ndbob: Do you have Redbox near you? That's how we rented it. Mostly we get library loans but, surprisingly, Sugarman is not there.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:35pm kat330:

Bye Jeff G!
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:37pm Doug Schulkind:

Saynora, Jeff Golick! (Yes, I went there.)

Yeah, there's a Redbox at our local market. I never see anything in it that I wanna see, however.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:37pm northguineahills:

@kat: Snert! (Tom Petty got his start in my old town of Gainesville, FL).

Thanks everyone!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:37pm glenn:

i like the jeff daniels newsroom a lot. i just watched the first season last week. ken finkleman's brother danny did a radio show on c.b.c.- finkleman's 45s. he'd play the hits of the 50's and rant about politics. it was always entertaining.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:38pm Parq:

"P&R" has no laugh track, I'll give it that straight up.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:38pm Philo Gristle:

Thanks, Doug! Reminds me of all those wonderful jungle movies I grew up with.... Tarzan, Sabu and their ilk.... it's perfect stuff for listening to at work, transporting you to another time & place.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:39pm ndbob:

@glenn I remember that show well - from Winnipeg I think?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:39pm Parq:

All right, aside from TV discussion, may I say that this music is so enjoyably exotic, it makes me think I should be drinking a Mai Tai.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:39pm glenn:

Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:40pm kat330:

@Parq: Definitely should be a gentle sea breeze while digging your toes in the warm sand... mmmm.... nice sense memory for a cold February.
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:40pm Doug Schulkind:

If I were spinning Mia Doi Todd, would you want a Mia Tia?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:41pm Parq:

As for my actual situation at the moment, "I am not drinking a Mai Tai" doesn't even begin to cover it.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:41pm Philo Gristle:

I got into exotica through those two great Re:Search books, by way of the Cramps, like I suspect many others did...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:42pm northguineahills:

Martin Denny was my gateway into exotica.....
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:42pm ndbob:

@Philo - those books are really good
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:42pm glenn:

yep, bob. straight form the 'peg.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:45pm kat330:

This evokes "Stranger in Paradise."
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:45pm Philo Gristle:

@Bob I was hooked to ReSearch books from late 80s on when I came across their Incredibly Strange Films at the local library, and then on purchased much of the stuff they published (even Charles Willeford!). But those Strange Music books are chock-full of fascinating stuff.
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Coming up immediately following GTDS will be Jesse Kaminsky and KAMINSKY KAMOUTSKY. His playlist/comment page is here:
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/13 6:47pm Holly in NC:

Hi everyone!
@Doug re Exotica Project = 5 hours? 5 days! And Danny's Lonely beat even better! :-)

I've no TV & often feel horribly culturally illiterate, but at this point the backlog of things I want to watch is beyond overwhelming. Someday I will finish the Sopranos (need last 1 1/2 seasons) and will start/finish the Wire. The Wire seems to be the biggie I've missed. Also have never seen Mad Men or Breaking Bad. HAVE seen every Malcolm in the Middle ;-)
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:48pm glenn:

modern primitives is my fave of the ReSearch books. the only problem is i keep lending it out, and it keeps not getting returned.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:48pm ndbob:

I learned so much from those books - read them about the time I started listening to the Incorrect Music show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/13 6:49pm Holly in NC:

Oh @ngh, congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:49pm ndbob:

@Holly - that's quite a blog
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:49pm Philo Gristle:

Hi Holly! Given that you've seen every Malcolm, you have to go for Breaking Bad next.....
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:49pm kat330:

Hola, Holly! Bryan Cranston is a study in beautiful contrast between Malcolm (which we also loved) and Breaking Bad (which we still *do* love, only buying seasons on DVD).
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:50pm Doug Schulkind:

@Holly in NC
You are right (about 5 days). I didn't wanna scare anyone off. Hey, how about your crappy governor? We he did is nothing short of an act of violence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/13 6:52pm Holly in NC:

@Doug, given crappy governor just cut off my housemate's income, I really don't want to talk about it. We are beyond f*cked. Housemate has worked HARD all his life, was laid off, jobs hard to find, and we are f*cked.
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

I am so so sorry. Filthy awful.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:54pm ndbob:

Sorry Holly
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:55pm glenn:

what did the crappy governor do?
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:55pm Philo Gristle:

@glenn Never got that one, didn't pique my interest. Did love Pranks, and the Ballard/Burroughs books though.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:55pm kat330:

Well, Indiana is stupidly giving tax refunds to people from a surplus gained from slashing school / education funding. It's insane.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/13 6:56pm Holly in NC:

Meh, in immortal words of Tears for Fears, things can only get better, right? woa, woa, woa, whoa, wha, whoa... ;-)

@Glenn google North Carolina unemployment insurance, it's a little hard for me to summarize
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:58pm northguineahills:

I'll have to admit, I"ve never heard of Tak Shindo before tonight.

I myself am sweating bullets as my unemployment is running out and I've only received a verbal agreement for employment, not a written one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/19/13 6:58pm Holly in NC:

It's the rejection of federal assistance that's real kick in face - just spiteful
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:59pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:59pm Philo Gristle:

I have to say all the Mganga tracks are pure killer, a tad less enthusiastic about the big band brass sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/19/13 6:59pm northguineahills:

NY state was actually rather nice w/ accepting federal assistance.
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 6:59pm kat330:

Great time with all, and TY for the soundtrack, Doug!

Bye everyone!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 7:00pm Philo Gristle:

Great show, Doug, a lovely showcase for Tak's talents! Night, all!
Avatar Tue. 2/19/13 7:01pm still b/p:

Hi/bye, all.

Back for last word, if I may, on the TV sitcom front: this is no bulletin, but I think one needs to get into a particular zone, a habituated frame of receptivity. For example, folks are mad for The Big Bang Theory, but in the few bits of it I saw, the pacing/beats and the insults and the plots are really far too unappealingly stale and familiar, seen endlessly across decades. Even if they give it the science/nerd personality and the fashionably ever-bluer shades of language & topics, it is easily dismissable in its bad case of rote rot, making me wonder what the Big Bang big attraction is.
Avatar    Tue. 2/19/13 7:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Thanks everyone. Had a blast (except for the time I upset Holly.) Love and music!
