Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 8:52am Doug Schulkind:

This gif is taken from an amazing scene in Easter Parade. Fred dances around the toy store dancing and banging on drums. He does an even more amazing drum/dance in another film. Can't remember the title just now.

39 years ago? But this happened during my lifetime. I remember, because I was a 10 year old kid with my family at Disneyland in California when it happened and the next day, we went to an Air Force base to see him fly in on an airplane and leave on a helicopter. 39 years ago? Oh wait, I am 49. I forgot.

i was but a wee lad, at the friar tuck inn, on vacation w/ my parents up in the catskills, when i saw his resignation speech on tv. the set was out in the lobby of the hotel and the place was abuzz. at the time i knew who nixon was broadly, but when i would see "watergate" mentioned in the news i still thought it was about a dam.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 10:02am Brian in UK:

My memory is not of the actual announcement he made from the Oval Office, but of listening to the radio the night before, while reading Howard Pyle's Men of Iron, when the DJ said it was being reported that Nixon was preparing his resignation speech for the next day.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 10:08am Alex In Illinois:

Thanks Kevin! (For restoring my sense of youth).
@Listener James from Westwood:
I too was disappointed when I first watched the Watergate hearings and did not get to see a dam break. A year or so later, there was a movie called "Earthquake" that had a dam break in it. I think that was to satisfy those of us who wanted to see dams breaking after hearing the word "watergate" so many times.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 10:08am Brian in UK:

Doug, moving into Bryce country, the Sixties was a wonderful time for experimental music, as is now ofcourse. But the barriers were higher then.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 10:08am Doug Schulkind:

Happy tea time, Brian in UK. Let's have a party. (Just not a tea party.) My mother told me never to speak ill of the dead. Right. Fuck Nixon and his fellow war criminal Kissofdeathinger.

Speaking of speaking of the dead: We shall hear from the divine Karen Black coming up.

Kissinger 'We probably made a mistake in Vietnam not to see it in global terms' This quote is from memory at a time when more bombs were being dropped in Cambodia with total denial from those mothers. Enough. I used to have the quote next to my desk at work circa 1974.

i am actually inclined to think that the last fifteen years has produced a breed of US leaders much worse than Kissinger and Nixon, partly because the resources for them to inflict misery are so much more sophisticated (in military and media terms). the current incumbent is among the worst. i am at least pleased to say my countrymen Mr Pilger and Mr Assange remain among the finest exposers of their crimes... www.counterpunch.org...

@ Alex( not in NY/NJ)- Glad to be of service! Like Beefheart said-"The Old Fart was Smart". Yeah ,I'm "vintaged" enough(58) to precisely remember the JFK asassinatation. The emotions I felt almost 11 years later were about as polar opposite as imaginable!

Speaking of dogs, we are bringing Lincoln home from camp on Tuesday. As soon as we return, the dog search begins. We (Jessie and I) badly want to name the dog "God," but don't think it will go over well with Lincoln. Or much of the rest of society. Can't you just imagine:

"God, come. I said COME!" Good God.

"God, no! Not on the carpet. BAD God!"

Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 10:38am Erella:

The Snapitx things were sold with caps. Not very dangerous, or maybe they were. Hmmm? Musician Rip Hayman had a cymbal at his front door and a box of those little things that guests would throw at the gong/cymbal to announce their arrival.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 10:41am northguineahills:

They weren't call snapitz when I was kid, but I used to put them between thumb and index finger, and snap and it would blow up in my fingers. It used freak out the girls. Just left a barely noticeable burn on my thumb.

David Toop got around in many genres. Chances are you've heard him in a group or band, and just didn't notice. (Kevin Ayers, Flying Lizard, and more groups then I can remember).
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 10:48am Doug Schulkind:

I remember exactly where I was when I heard that Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan died. I was on vacation on Ocracoke Island off North Carolina. Early on the same vacation, I heard that Fela Anikulapo-Kuti died. For a while, it seemed famous people always seemed to die when I was on vacation. Two years earlier, it was Mickey Mantle. I was very afraid for Nelson Mandela while we were in Maine. Bless the moon and stars he's still here.

Yeah Nusrat Ali Khan died when I took a break from my summer semester in and the beginning of my senior fall semester of college. I had just come back from a road trip to Atlanta.

Similarly, Kurt Cobain died when I was senior in HS when I was packing to go on an off road biking trip, and my friend's very Christian little sister told us the news, and we thought she was making it up.
  Fri. 8/9/13 10:56am Elias:

Doug, I was born in Allen Memorial Hospital in 1971. My brother attended Oberlin College from 1985-1989, so I had a full Oberlin College social life while attending Oberlin High School. When I was a kid we had MASSIVE and deadly peashooter wars in Mudd Library. Peashooters sound innocuous, but they are the machine gun of the toy world. Do you remember Norm Care? I bought his drumkit ans still own it!
  Fri. 8/9/13 10:59am Elias:

Jesus, that story brings back all kinds of memories. Wow! There is one LP from the WOBC library I really wish I had stolen. It is a Tammy Wynette record. A 12-inch special promotional version of "Stand By Your Man." It was released as a means of rallying support for Ronald Reagan early in his first term, when the economy was in the shit and he was quite unpopular. During this version of "Stand By Your Man," Wynette interjects spoken passages between the choruses exhorting American's to stand by Reagan. During one passage she says "Stand by your man, be he peasant or president," except she i SWEAR TO GOD says the word pheasant. I can't fucking believe I didn't steal or at least make a cassette copy of that record.

Years later, I actually called someone up at WOBC and they looked in the library and couldn't find the record. I've been searching for it ever since.

@NGH
I'm sure Tunde would say the same about you.

the one record I wish I had stolen from my college library was a Nicholas Schöffer book with a Pierre Henry 45 tucked in the back. What was I thinking, nobody ever listened to it ever.

When I was working in downtown Jacksonville in 2000, I was walking by the city's main library and there was a sign saying there was LP sale. All records were 50 cents each. There was everything from Varese, Schoenberg, Stockhausen, Cage, Henry, Braxton, Art Ensemble of Chicago, and some weird Electronic LPs from the 70s. Each LP was 50 cents. It took two trips w/ the records piled past my eyes to get them to my car (no bags were provided, and I didn't have any w/ me that day. It was a good day. Most of the records had only been checked out once or twice, and the last time they had been checked out was back in the 70s.

Doug, you said it! Just mentioning WOBC and Mudd bring back the most hilarious of thoughts. My brother DJ'ed at some sort of class reunion a few years ago at the "sco" and nobody had used the turntables all semester. Luckily after a good dusting the party was turned out. That town was, and I think still is to some extent, a great place for Our Gang style antics. We used to pile all the beanbag chairs up and jump from the third to the second floor at Mudd sometimes in an escape manuever. Nothing beats watching ten year olds jumping like lemmings over a railing. I will embark on a Wynette-quest on your behalf. Anyway, there's a record coming your way, I'll send you a picture and you will be all a-chuckle.

Have always felt pretty lucky about that.

Prreeetttty sure. Ran into Lane and his fam earlier this summer at a rest stop along I-95 in Connecticut.

It's been said that Lane's wife and mine look alike. I've tried switching but it didn't fly.

Lane has played great with Darius Jones in recent years/groupings.

Be careful, the "other" Adam Lane was dubbed the Highway Killer. So of course you saw him at a rest stop on I-95.
