Howdee, boys and girls, from Blighty where it's nearly lunchtime! Loving this Rue de Montmorency track - on the glidepath to a lovely afternoon - hopefully.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 6:36am fred:

Good morning Jeffrey, Kim and BLG

greetings from greece!!
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 6:37am Sem Chumbo:

Good morning, Jefrey and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 6:49am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...up for more of the 1st hour than usual perhaps - as I would like to be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 7:03am BigLankyGeordie:

Computer shenanigans explains why the lovely Sarah Davachi briefly popped up in playlist but then didnt play. Oh well, maybe next time? Great show nevertheless
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:09am doca:

I love the word shenanigans.

Hi you all, Jeff's playlists help me doing the usual Saturday morning house clean up a more pleasant experience
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:16am Sem Chumbo:

Good morning, doca. When you mentioned shenanigans, I realized I did not know really what it meant. So I looked in the Urban Dictionary and got this:An official declaration made by patrons of an establishment who feel they have been cheated. Once a charge of shenanigans has been accepted by an authority figure, said patrons are free to assault the owners of said establishment with brooms.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:19am doca:

Haha I never seen it used this way
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:23am doca:

I looked further and now I got it. In Brazil we have many words for it (as deceitfulness is a very common thing in Brazilian day-to-day), but one exact translation of shenanigans would be "marmelada". Marmelada, of course, is marmalade, but you can say it after someone got the an unjust advantage on a business or competition. Then people scream "Marmelada!", I don't know if they go physical afterwards, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 7:25am BigLankyGeordie:

In little old England, shenanigans, usually just means 'funny goings on' - as they say England and America, two countries divided by a common language! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 7:27am BigLankyGeordie:

Grim, just looked outside and it's a torrential rain storm now - think I'll just stay in and WFMU the afternoon away!
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:27am Sem Chumbo:

Hey, doca. Thanks for that. I believe I'll add marmelada to my very limited Portuguese vocabulary:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 7:28am Mike East:

Good morning, all.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:30am doca:

@Sem Chumbo: by the way, I always thought about asking, why your name is Sem Chumbo here?
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:38am Sem Chumbo:

While working on a novel about a private investigator unable to get anywhere with a case, I traveled to Portugal and in re-fueling the rental car for the first time, I saw sem chumbo.It hit me,"no lead" described the characters major problem.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:44am doca:

Haha great way to think about a username. What's the novel? Did you wrote it?
  Sat. 1/25/14 7:47am from Quebec:

in Italian that would be "senza piombo" - quite similar!
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:50am doca:

Yeah, that would come from Latin plumbum. I don't know where chumbo came, tho.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:51am Sem Chumbo:

@doca: yet another "drawer novel", 65,000 words in and then, like Sem, no obvious way forward. I use the name here to remind me the work isn't finished yet.
@ from Quebec: my detective would be far more dashing with a name like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 7:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'shenanigans' always sounded Irish to me
...mischief - but play & fun implied too ? - or irresponsible deeds - a fine line...
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:56am doca:

@Sem Chumbo: oh that's bad. Have you already had other published works? I think the first one must be the most difficult
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 7:58am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- even a Symphony lasts less than an hour; people say Novel Writing is an extended ordeal...
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:00am doca:

I'm going to the same situation, as I'm trying to publish my master degree's dissertation. But if it fail, I'm thinking of self-publishing. In the academic circles, I think this may be an innovative and wise option (autonomous distribution with a lower price, as I won't gen any money anyway). Unfortunately in fiction things can be harder
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:18am Sem Chumbo:

@doca, sorry, away for a minute making breakfast. Yes, I have published short stories and radio plays for money, and I work mostly as a freelance writer for hire, but the novel(s) are a marathon, where the other things are like the 220/440.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:21am mike east:

@doca- my good friend is current
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:21am ?:

hi all
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:22am Sem Chumbo:

Self-publishing is certainly innovative, but is that kosher in academic circles?
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:23am mike east:

Sorry, baby hit send.
...currently working on his dissertation in Brazil. Isn't that where u are?
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:25am doca:

@mike: yes, what's he studying?
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:26am doca:

@Sem: I don't know, but I see a movement towards it, at least that an association of teachers and students could establish an internet publishing house without having to pass through all the publication process a normal editor would require. It's a bet, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 8:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...saw a story on PBS Newshour about these Tech people who started a Program that trains tech kids instead of University ; kid on there talking about being in an Astronomy class & it's 45 minutes his competitors are working on business tech. - kind of admire it & think he's a self-important narrow-minded turd @ the same time...sorry - tangential topic...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 8:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...this Sam Lee sorta extraordinary...
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:35am Sem Chumbo:

@doca, I think it is ironic that the academic world is SO conservative, resisting change at every turn. Good luck with the dissertation.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:36am mike east:

I know he was a religion studies major, but I'm not sure specifically what he's studying in Brazil. I turned him onto your blog.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:40am doca:

@Sem: it's very conservative, but I like to think that the guys with who I hang out are not so. It was a professor of mine who pointed to self-publication, actually.
@Mike: thanks for showing the blog, I'm just updating it with a major history lesson on 60s Brazil. But tell me more later what he studies, it's always nice to see people from abroad sharing their perspectives on Brazil.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:51am LovecraftDude888:

oh not awake...as an author and critic myself, I've been most upset about commercial books coming out the past few years with tons of typos and crap copy-editing and quality control. Very disappointing in many cases.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:52am doca:

Great show, Jeff, thanks once again.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:52am LovecraftDude888:

I even had a book with one of my pieces in it where my essay was error-free, but the other ones had a lot of typos and such and wasn't proofread very well. It irks!
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:54am Jojodillon:

Daniel Romano is the best...his last solo album is a trip to another era completely.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:54am LovecraftDude888:

caught tail end of show here...was in dream land.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 8:54am Mike East:

@doca - will do.
Yes, thanks for the tunes this morning. Great start to the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 8:55am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx As Ever DJJD !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 8:57am Mike East:

Think I may have to learn this NY song today.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:57am LynnsBrother:

This song reminds me of my friend Steve, a Neil Young jukebox. Haven't seen him in 20 yrs.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:57am Gigio:

Sad Canadian is ever the best
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 8:58am listener james from westwood:

@lovecraftdude888: agreed on the typos/copyediting/lack of QC. as a copy editor and proofreader, i find them doubly distracting in finished books. "send them to me before press! i can fix this sort of thing!" i yell.
  Fri. 1/31/14 11:10am van:

I'm still behind

The tune in the background of "Wild Wood Amber" by Sam Lee...
