sorry folks, rough set for requests - the whole playlist I prepared in advance has gone apeshit, so I'm scrambling just to get the stuff I was ready for

Rough, Scott. Hang in there. For what it's worth, it sounds great from this end.
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 3:43pm glenn:

that's true. resonating frequency / sympathetic vibration. it only happens with a suspension type bridge, though.
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 3:44pm Scott Williams:

Thanks Parq! ...and plus also the EAS unit keeps spitting out all these storm warnings. Hey, y'all know it's gonna be snowing a lot in NY/NJ real soon? Tellya all about it in a sec...

I haven't been there myself, but my buddy's are always ragging on me cuz I guess its something of a rite of passage for North Jerseyans. One of many that I've missed out on. I'll get there one of these days.

Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:18pm Ike:

@Mike East, I've heard bad things about Rutt's Hut in recent years, so that's put me off trying it even though I live just a few miles away. But then I am not all that into hot dogs anyway, nor do I go anywhere just for the dubious appeal of an allegedly entertainingly seedy atmosphere.
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:22pm LovecraftDude888:

haha...I heard it was pretty gross, actually. I went to Tick Tock Diner again 3 yrs. ago after not having gone in years, maybe a decade or more, it was ...eh. ok.
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:23pm LovecraftDude888:

just read the Rowe Manse closed in 2003, got killed off due to bankruptcy and competition from new shopping, etc. They made a fortune on all kinds of things...Cabbage patch feckin dolls etc. that place was tacky as hell but fun
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:25pm Serpico:

apparently one of my friends got hit on by a russian waiter at tick tock.
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:27pm LovecraftDude888:

haha! No shocker. It was ok...used to be much better 20 yrs. ago or more. Like most. And then...the hit man thing!
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:27pm Ike:

Yeah, Tick Tock is definitely nothing special. The Schuyler used to be a hidden gem, but I just read it changed hands recently and has reportedly gone downhill, so that's depressing.
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- now this is an interesting cover as one always thinks of the sound the Electric Prunes got on it & you hear the song here - but then people always hear it as 'too much to drink' anyway...love the insights I'm getting into NJ up heah HewHampshuh reading this...
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:30pm Mike East:

I'm a Pompton Queen guy, myself. A bit farther from y'all, but closer to me.
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:33pm LovecraftDude888:

I've heard the Pompton Queen is a great diner...I never get out that way but I would like to. I just read recent Yelp on Tick Tock it's gotten even worse the past two years apparently. Plus nobody cleans the bathrooms.
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:34pm Mike East:

Let me know if you make it out here, man. I'll buy you a cuppa coffee.
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- I have to admit - I'm seein' Yelp! as kinda useful @ this point ! - but nobody's written about me @ my werk yet I don't think...

That Todd Clark Group was great! Hadn't heard it before.
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:37pm LovecraftDude888:

ha, thanks man! reading up on it now on Yelp. I review stuff on there for laughs sometimes...as "ye Olde Punk" etc. I skewer places where I gotta. Anyway...I was considering a trip to some bookstore in Morristown NJ soon. But a good hike.
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:38pm Scott Williams:

EFD, check for the full-length 2-CD set in the library under Todd Tamanend Clark. all over the place & strange, but much very good!

nevermind Morristown is a good deal SW the other way from Pompton..arghh. I wanna go to Old Bookstore there I hear it's great. Meanwhile I'm stuck in Port Washout here for the time being...weather or just lack of energy.

  Mon. 1/20/14 4:42pm LovecraftDude888:

I only know Frijid Pink from WNEW or etc. playing them years and years ago...I was like who the hell is FP? was like the acid fuzz version of House o the rising sun
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah, I had an older brother so I was exposed to a lot of stuff...now they're considered Proto-StonerMetal...
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:43pm LovecraftDude888:

and then once in NJ at Two Guys or whatever I one thought Music From Big Pink was a Floyd album. Oh youth
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:44pm LovecraftDude888:

as indeed, it was proto stoner metal, heavy but fuzzed out. I don't think FP made it real big
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- I dunno ! Back then stuff like that could Chart a little!...
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:46pm glenn:

huh. i wonder how big pink anderson really was.
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:48pm LovecraftDude888:

ha yeah! Imagine had I bought M From Big Pink then and brought it home...hey this don't sound like Dark Side...another disillusioned consumer jr. high schooler
  Mon. 1/20/14 4:49pm LovecraftDude888:

I mean I think I read that Frij. Pink didn't go massive but they had some airplay at that time
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 4:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

"House of the Rising Sun" / "Drivin' Blues" (Parrot 341) 1969; No. 7 on Billboard Hot 100 (February 1970), No. 3 in Canada, No. 1 in Germany, No. 4 in UK[2]

Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 5:08pm Serpico:

it started with Pink Floyd, with me thinking they were the most bizarre, edgy "classic rock" band. then from there i learned about lesser known bands and how truly amazing they were/are. such a shame that they're so many goods bands/musicians out there, yet there not very well known, while the mainstreamers listen to the same music that's been recycled, just with a new face, and think it's the "best."

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63 i know, it sucks :( sad thing is it's difficult to convince people used to the generic, that alternative music provides so much more.

but god commercial radio in NY....worse than ever. I'd even take the old WKTU back over most of the garbage out there now
Avatar Mon. 1/20/14 5:21pm Serpico:

it sickens me to no end how z100 remains the most popular station in the new york area. they've perfected brainwashing to the tee.
  Mon. 1/20/14 5:24pm LovecraftDude888:

is it still? I guess that figures. Been like that for ages. I have not much more use for 104.3 and such..so stuck in corporate hell same programming again and again. Awful! All I know is rock radio in NYC was at least a bit diverse from the 70s-late 80s, after that....yuk
