I heard once that in Japanese tradition the bedtime stories are almost always horror stories, so the children wouldn't want to listen to it 'till the end and sleep. Don't know if it's true neither if the technique is efficient, but it sounds interesting

No more bedtime stories for our 13-year-old. Instead we have heated discussions over the NYT Magazine's Ethicist column. Sleep on that, suckah.

Remind me never to be a Japanese youth.

Yes, black olives do very nicely. I have also been deploying roasted eggplant in much the same way you suggest mushrooms. The problem is, if I put mushrooms, my daughter will disown me. Even if they are not on her side of the pizza.

Or simply broil or bake it. Maybe with some smoked paprika?? Arctic char is more my taste in char.

Just discovered that Joe McPhee will be at the Guggenheim in two weeks, with Arto Lindsay and Richard Hell and The Thing, then immediately after discovered that it is sold out: What a world.

That Lewis-Mangelsdorff was superb.

Sounds like tasty dining @ljfw.

I heard that the Guggenheim was going to Hell, but instead it's the other way around.

Watched Atomic playing here last Friday which has two-thirds of The Thing. Those guys are travelling all the time!

Hi Gary! I thanked you earlier for unearthing Sravanti Mazumdar's cover of "Seasons in the Sun."

I've been depressed ever since seeing Danilo Parra's short film about Kalaparusha.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 11:20am Gary:

Oh yeah, I love that version. I know it's a very, very sappy song, but some of my earliest sonic memories are of listening to it on the beach and having this feeling like it was important and profound and that I should be crying (but wasn't)

According to our astute audience, Terry Jack's version of "Seasons in the Sun" was a cover of the Kingston Trio's cover of Rod McKuen's original!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/15/13 11:25am Uncle Michael:

Rod McKuen's wasn't the original...keep digging!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/15/13 11:26am Uncle Michael:

Rod translated the Brel song.

Man, this "Seasons in the Sun" drinking game is killing me!

And it was NOT sappy...the singer is dying and talking to his wife and his wife's lover...his friend.

Terry Jacks was also responsible for one of the key pieces in Irwin Chusid's original "Atrocious Music" series -- the predecessor to "Incorrect Music".

I saw a production of "Alive and Well" about five years back at the Zipper in the west 30s, that included a completely different translation of the Brel original. I remember that the first two lines of the chorus were "Let us sing, let us dance, write graffiti on the wall."

@UM ty - was going by the originals project website

YW Now let's talk about the song that was the basis for Bobby Darin's "Beyond the Sea!"

My vote for best Brel cover ever: Nina Simone's "The Desperate Ones" (Les Désespérés)

Scott Walker was WAY ahead of the pack, singing Brel in English.

@Doug: Oh, I know! Saw it on your recommendation and felt the same sadness...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/15/13 11:36am Parq:

@Doug, others, you should check out Camille O'Sullivan's Brel covers, including a castration-anxiety-inducing "Next" and a brilliantly exuberant "Jackie".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/15/13 11:37am Brian in UK:

@UM love Joanna, that is Brel?
By the way must listen to your Tuesday show. The first part with rock operas, terrible name. Bought Nirvanas epic when it came out. This is where a CD does not do justice to the artwork.

Ooops meant Jackie.

Thanks for that great comment!

Wow, gotta hear that.

Scott's "Jackie" is a favorite of mine. I like that Nirvana record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/15/13 11:40am Parq:

Brian, assuming we are talking about the "Cute cute cute in a stupid-ass way" song, yes, it's a Brel.
Avatar Fri. 11/15/13 11:41am Doug Schulkind:

The Sensational Alex Harvey's "Next" is pretty harrowing and great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/15/13 11:43am Brian in UK:

@parq Guess that sums up our DJ!!!!

@UM The Alan Bown covered 'We Can Help You' and they wrote 1999 well before the blessed one.

Doug, yeah, like that, only with a beautiful woman, and you can practically feel her nails digging into you as she sings it.

@UM think Brigitte Bardot recorded 'Wings of Love' as well. 'He wants to be in love he wants to be a butterfly'. How Sixties. Love it.

On the subject of the Upsetter, this is one of the very best dub albums ever made:

It has come in several versions, but this is the one I have (I think). Classic!
