Wait, sorry to show up so early, but was the country song that wound up at 7:55 EST really saying "The Homo and the Rose"? Please tell me I'm just experiencing a fractured pre-shower hearing moment.

Good morning. I'm working form home today. We have had some snow here in the Chicago area and I think we're expecting some rain and more snow. Was that a tuba solo we just heard?
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 8:45am Doug Schulkind:

Hi Duke and Ill Alex! I loved Searching for Sugar Man, too, though I thought it a bit absurd hearing from all those poor oppressed white South Africans. Saying that it took the music of Rodriguez to show them a path toward freedom was kinda laughable. An enjoyable film nevertheless.

I also thought the part about the Rodriguiz albums sparking the SA revolution was over the top. They didn't mention that he was big in Australia either. It also seems like record companies are the biggest pirates.

I also wished the film had let the songs play longer without interruption. One of the amazing things about the HBO show The Treme is how it lets the music happen up front without needing to quickly fade it under the dialogue. And yeah, glenn, Avant pretty much smeared himself in the movie.

Speaking of movies the GDS crowd would dig, I saw the Hava Nagila documentary ("Hava Nagila, The Movie") last month. Apolitical to a fault (and kind of in love with suburbia), it is nonetheless filled with good jokes, engrossing musical lore and even controversy (two families are fighting over which one's ancestor wrote the original lyrics). It opens in April, so I'm told.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 9:14am Doug Schulkind:

"There's no such thrill in the world as making money."
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 10:54am Matt from Springfield:

@UM: Figurative ouroboroi probably a bit: "The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end" A lot of us are like that.

As for literally, about 3% of Drummers exclusively ouroboroi, representing 35% of all actual ouroboroi.

I am not sure about disqualifying the years before recorded music. I would have loved to have attended one of Louis Moreau Gottschalk's concerts.

I think the snakes have eaten all the owls. It's in Guam that the toxic mice are being air-dropped.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/22/13 10:59am Uncle Michael:

Is that 90,000 pounds in your pajamas or are you just happy to see me?
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 11:00am dcp:

that's the big problem with dealing with "invasive" species--sometimes the cure ends up being another problem. Quite often in fact.

'ey 'o, Doug!
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 11:00am ndbob:

I've talked to people in Guam about the snake problem - which is really extreme - unintended consequences can always happen - but the ecosystem has been destroyed by the snakes

Ah, hard currency.

Thanks for your voluntary updates, still b/p.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 11:02am dcp:

yeah, in this case it looks like they gotta go for something. It's just that the history of dealing with invasive species has not been all that positive. Very fuckin tricky. Loads of variables to consider.

They should drop some toxic gators in the Everglades to erode the numbers of Burmese pythons.

Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 11:04am Alex In Illinois:

For some reason, I was afraid that the mouse drop was going to be in Florida, since there is a python problem. The Florida legislature has had a lot of difficulty passing python control laws, because of the exotic pet industry lobby. The also have some bizarre anti-gun safety gag laws, but I don't want to open up another can of worms or snakes here.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 11:05am dcp:

killer set!
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 11:06am ndbob:

The python issue in Florida, is an annoyance, but nothing like the snake problem in Guam, so hopefully there won't be an overreaction

Huh, surprised someone else was allowed to call himself "Stan Getz" then--maybe he didn't have permission! Illicit 45!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/22/13 11:11am northguineahills:

The snake problem in Guam has had a century to fester (that, and it's a large island), while the python problem in FL is only a decade +. Although there are plenty of other invasive species reigning havoc in FL.

Lindsey Lohan, as she's the only thing toxic enough to take down the toxic gators. (low hanging fruit)

I listened to the whole "Louis and the Good Book" album. Most of it has a hokey studio chorus, but the last two "Elder Eatmore's Sermon" ones are pretty wild, especially the "Throwing Stones" one.

For years I just had MP3s of those two sermons. I've grown to love the rest of the hokiness, too.
