So true, G. Applies to self-knowledge, as well.

  Wed. 5/1/13 3:47pm Robert:

They match up pretty well, but the way they're put together makes it sound more like a medley -- probably because the original material fit so easily.
  Wed. 5/1/13 3:48pm jan:

Lulu vs. Zombies vs. Ringo Starr vs. Supremes vs. Beatles (ccc mix) is the ultimate mashup!
  Wed. 5/1/13 3:48pm Flubby:

This song is bringing tears to my eyes. Cards Against Humanity is amazing.
Love you.
  Wed. 5/1/13 3:49pm Robert:

Some of the original material COULD probably have been mashed up tight, with more overlap so less running time.

G, IP, like guns and happiness, are right there in the US Constitution, it's important and people aren't giving it up anytime soon. I think guns and IP are required in Irwinistan.

I like how covers actually interpret a song, a mashup often just plays two songs at once.

Tony Thompson is always written off as some disco drummer, but he did play with Zepplin at Live Aid and was in rehearsals for a new Zep album. Even if nobody else did, the Zep guys though he could replace Bonzo. I sure thought he could, and he sounds great on Madonna and Bowie and CHIC records, too.
  Wed. 5/1/13 4:46pm Ralphine:

Ginger Baker's name on the label is what led me to buy an 8-track tape of Fela Ransome Kuti and the Africa '70 way back in the early '70s.

There, I said it.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:08pm Caryn:

I've had a visceral cringe reaction to some performers.

Irwin, I wonder if your subconscious has been somehow traumatised by that Ella Fitzgerald ad where he shattered the glass with her voice? For some reason you fear hearing her will make you shatter...
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Was it not Hal Wilner who did liner notes to Carl Stalling & called it the 'music of our subconscious'? I love that...
- Wow - this Ella thing!...Lady Day tops for me
- I kinda know what you mean - but you are interesting Irwin...I love how Ella'd jam like a musician w/ guys, & smoke 'em, & they'd love it...

I think you're on to something, Caryn. Perhaps it's a sonic permutation of the vagina dentata.

You don't like Ella Fitz, yet sometimes, you choose to play some of the worst 'music' I've ever had to endure...I'm glad my app lets me switch over to Ichiban so fast.

That's why there's vanilla, and there's chocolate. So we can choose.

The "Third Way" tries to please both flavors, co-opting into a false compromise, and ends up pleasing no one!

Except me. And rrg. And others too, I'm sure.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:15pm G:

Some people want freedom to choose, and other people also to be free to choose anything as long as it's what they themselves would choose. The short term for this phenomenon is "not getting it"
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:16pm Carmichael:

You're not talking about evil Neopolitan, are you Matt? The chocolate section always seems to escape 1st.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:16pm Caryn:

@Alison: and now the vagina dentata issue is making me second-guess the judgment of the people who produced that talking vagina porn movie. Seriously, one concept could subconsciously so easily lead to the other that it would seem like a really bad idea for turning men on.

@Caryn - In moments like this I just ask myself, "what would Freud say?" and I feel more at ease, even if I don't know the answer.

This sounds like that Dave Mason/Cass Elliott album. Which I like a lot.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Bravo RRN63! I myself have quoted that, on Clay's playlist.

@Carm: It always escapes first for Homer S, in fact chocolate's the only one that escapes with him around. But seriously folks, chocolate+vanilla scoop on the same spoon, eat a bit, then continue by scooping up some strawb. My way to begin neapolitan ice cream.

Chocolate... Vanilla... If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

Damn, now I'm craving ice cream. Good thing I'm about to leave work! See some of you later @7SD, otherwise have a good evening!

What are Ken & Andy going to fail at tonight?
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:25pm G:

Inter alia, they will fail at not cancelling the show, most likely :p

I hope Ike is listening. He deplores Midlake.

I don't actually play music I like. My whole shtick is playing music other people hate.

@Ralphine: yep. Rather good, actually. And if anyone wants to see the porn, look for "Chatterbox". Sigh...

My timing to go get some ice cream seems to have been most fortuitous.

Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:30pm G:

@IC: And what's your success metric on that? :)

I don't think anyone's ever played anything on WFMU I actually hated. I used to hate things in my teens. Now I just try to 'get' them -- some times more successfully than others. But if I can't get something, I suppose if I hate anyone it should be me, for lacking sufficient cultural or musical insight...

Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:44pm Carmichael:

My friends ask me to describe the music on FMU. I usually end up telling them that I've never heard of most of it, and like most of it.

@Sem C.: Every listener to this show knows that some companies are going to price that differently.

Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:51pm Parq:

The idea of an effort to "bring back sea chanties" inevitably brings to mind that Bill Murray and Christopher Guest bit for the Lampoon in the 70sk with a late night dee-jay doing a segment with an A&R man "breaking" the latest thing, whaling songs.
  Wed. 5/1/13 5:52pm East David:

Thanks - not Austria, though - but what used to be East Germany.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'The David' is known for his modest endowment - which some say explains the funny look on his face...Actually, Michelangelo wanted our focus elsewhere, it is said...

My German is rusty. How's East Germany - Osten Duetschland? Anyway, howdy.

@Parq: I love that sketch: "4 guys. Sweaters. Singing. Like birds!"
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:55pm rrg:

No line for me to see that statue, but that might be because the vacation-planners in my family had arranged a private tour of the museum(s) with a tour-guide person.

Is this from the compilation album The Night of 1,000 Bands That Sound Like Godspeed?

Hey, it's the only good Eagles song! (That I know of.)

Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:58pm Caryn:

I love the doctors who suggested that the model for the David must have had this or that disease because the hands on the sculpture are oversized. It had to be explained to them that as the David was originally going to be on a building, the hands were made bigger so that they would look normal-sized from the perspective of a person on the street. Simple artists' trick.

And yay, the HGTTG theme!
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:58pm Irwin:

Andy walked in the studio and DID NOT RECOGNIZE THE SONG.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah Rich: Here's an Eagles' tune I have *positive* associations w/ - !
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:58pm rrg:

The tour guide said stuff about whether David's endowment indicated that this was pre-slingshot or post-slingshot. Stuff like that.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 5:58pm Parq:

Whoa, this had an existence apart from"Hitchhiker?" And it's an Eagles song? Damn, learn something new every day.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 6:00pm rrg:

All right, there's an Eagles album in my future.

I totally didn't know whose song that was. I only knew it from its association with HGTTG.
