one of Grace's poppier tracks. Marianne Faithfulll had some songs like this.

Good evening Daniel and everyone! Nice Grace Jones cut.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 7:26pm JakeGould:

Hello all! Happy Labor Day Eve! I stupidly went to Ikea & dealt with the mouth breathing zombie apocalypse. Never again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 7:28pm Daniel Blumin:

Hullo, Ike, Brian and George! Jake, but did you have the meatballs????
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 7:29pm Ĩkє:

I had those meatballs at the Elizabeth NJ location once. They were OK, nothing special. My GF at the time thought I was nuts for even bothering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 7:30pm JakeGould:

No, I did not have the meatballs. The last time I did—I think 8 years ago—I had the most explosive diarrhea of my life. I did thank the poor checkout gal who was clearly burned from the mess. I can’t even describe how meanly post-apocalypitic the place was today. Brooklyn location in Red Hook.
  Sun. 8/31/14 7:33pm Brian:

Best to make meatballs at home with pork, beef, veal from the butcher. cheap, too, for two people.
  Sun. 8/31/14 7:35pm Jacq-eez Bacque:

Sounds like the makins of a good Swedish meatball Brian...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 7:35pm JakeGould:

The best way to make meatballs for me is to earn money with the skills I have & then taking that money to someone who makes quality meatballs. I then pay them money & they give me meatballs. And the economy wins!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 7:37pm George of Troy:

Wow, this Zemi17 is pretty great.

Indeed, Phil! I thought what with all the meatball talk it was only fair...
Avatar    Sun. 8/31/14 7:48pm phil:

thanks for giving veggies a voice, daniel!
  Sun. 8/31/14 7:50pm P-90:

Sound effects used in TV shows produced by Irwin Allen.
  Sun. 8/31/14 7:50pm Phillip In Brooklyn:

Cool! I loved that movie "fantastic voyage" even have it on DVR
Avatar    Sun. 8/31/14 7:51pm phil:

yes! the bug and flowdan!
  Sun. 8/31/14 7:52pm Phillip In Brooklyn:

I liked "lost in space" and "voyage to the bottom of the sea" it's a shame the scifi channel doesn't air it anymore
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 7:52pm JakeGould:

Is there a good source of sound effects libraries from sic-fi shows? Really would like a collection of sound effects from 1960s/1970s Japanese sci-fi.
  Sun. 8/31/14 7:52pm kathy:

  Sun. 8/31/14 7:52pm P-90:

Oh, I see the talking vegetable posts now, arriving late this evening.
Hi Daniel B. and all Bluminfidels!
  Sun. 8/31/14 7:53pm Phillip In Brooklyn:

A user on youtube uploaded all the lost in space episodes but some one complained and they took them down
  Sun. 8/31/14 7:55pm P-90:

@ Philip: I beleve they are still available on Hulu. (You just hafta watch a coupla commercials w/each one)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 7:56pm JakeGould:

The reason they got banned from YouTube most likely has to do with ten being on Hulu.

That's Beautiful!
Avatar    Sun. 8/31/14 8:00pm phil:

@JakeGould, there are soundtracks of SF movies from that time, like SFeiga no sekai. www.diwproducts.com... (all in Japanese). Haven't seen anything on sound effects but they probably exist.
  Sun. 8/31/14 8:00pm P-90 #6:

And (if anyone cares) the complete "The Prisoner" is available on Crackle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 8:00pm JakeGould:

Don’t care about soundtracks. Want effects.
  Sun. 8/31/14 8:02pm P-90 #6:

@Jake: The trekkies have CD's and online libraries of sounds from you-know-what. -Though you seem to be after something more esoteric.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 8/31/14 8:04pm JakeGould:

I have that Star Trek sound effects CD. I am looking for the other stuff.

Fabulous set, Daniel... Thanks!

Thanks, George!!!
  Sun. 8/31/14 9:02pm ScottC:

Daniel - if a very powerful multi-national military organization was ringing your country with missile systems - relentless in their efforts to threaten and isolate you. Their most audacious accomplishment being to install a neo-facist government with its roots in Nazi ideology in a former border state (say Texas ) what would your options be?
Avatar    Sun. 8/31/14 9:03pm phil:

thanks for the great tunes, daniel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/1/14 12:02am Daniel Blumin:

Thanks, Phil. Scott, thanks for your comment. I'd say that I'd politely agree to disagree w/ the fascist tag (though there clearly are some nationalists lurking on the fringes as there are in other countries). The missile systems you refer to were never installed due to the "reset" with Russia but they have a lot more chance of becoming a reality in the near future as a result of present events. And if Texas were to be invaded by little green men, I think we'd be looking at self-defense options. The Russia-as-victim narrative doesn't really work for me here even if in other circumstances/historical periods it might. The current situation smacks more of Soviet conduct in Hungary '56 & Czechoslovakia '68. Threats, bullying, and invasion as a means to control other nations. There were other ways to handle people's grievances months ago. Bottom line - it is Ukraine that's got almost no options thanks to its "friendly" neighbor to the east.

And on a lighter note - hope everyone has a good Labor Day (which hopefully does not involve laboring!)! All ze best y'all!!! Onto September!
