Guten TZAG @ fxo & Co.
Mon. 9/15/14 6:22am fxo:
Guten TZAG, back atcha. Again, what's the translation of that term of endearment? Jus' axkin'.
Mon. 9/15/14 6:30am P-90:
Guten Tag is "good day" in German, a common morning greeting. We started saying TZAG for "time zone-appropriate greetings", cuz now we've got folks from all over the planet listening to this here New Jersey radio station-- -a Helluva thing
Mon. 9/15/14 6:33am fxo:
"Guten Tag is "good day" in German.
thanks "P". what's up with the "Z"?
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 6:35am Sem Chumbo:
Howareyaknow, dear? That's a common greeting here on the real east coast. Hiya, Frank, and Exciting Moments worldwide.
Mon. 9/15/14 6:37am P-90:
"The Real East Coast"? i.e. of the Bay of Fundy?
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 6:41am Sem Chumbo:
The East Coast of North America, I speak now of St. John's, Newfoundland, in a half-hour time zone, the homeland.
*Howareyounow,bye? is a variant. Hello, P-90.
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 6:43am Sem Chumbo:
Susan Sarandon stole my heart in that.
Burt: You should have seen the Atlantic in the 40's!
Mon. 9/15/14 6:45am fxo:
our moments are somewhat exciting...
Morning Sem. What Susan Sarandon could do with lemons...
Mon. 9/15/14 6:46am david from kst:

Mon. 9/15/14 6:48am fxo:
mornin' to you, 'stroso.
Mon. 9/15/14 6:49am P-90:
Bob Rafelson's "The King of Marvin Gardens" is the other gem from that period, with Nicholson, Bruce Dern, and the always-flawless Ellen Burstyn.
It's the ideal double bill w/"Atlantic City"
Mon. 9/15/14 6:50am kat330:
Hello, Mr. O' and gathered all! That first set was excellent sandwich-making music, esp. the Gerard Wilson tracks. Philo can expect a superior lunch today.
Mon. 9/15/14 6:51am P-90:
Yes, Bob (The Monkees) Rafelson, that Bob Rafelson
Mon. 9/15/14 6:52am kat330:
@Sem: Burt was most excellent, too. A scene that sticks in m mind is -- ohh, shoot, I see that Frank already co-opted the lemons bit. :)
Mon. 9/15/14 6:52am P-90:
Hi Kat330! Pray thee, what's on the sandwich board for today?
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 6:53am duke:
good morning all and sundry
Mon. 9/15/14 6:54am fxo:
fun kind of movies, eh?
Burt was stellar in the movie. Rafelson, hooked up with Jack, had a nice journey.
thanks kat330. And Philo will have a nice meal, as well.
Mon. 9/15/14 6:57am kat330:
Nothing remarkable: Turkey, cheese, romaine, tomato, cuke and hummus on whole wheat (to be wry, sometimes I choose rye).
Mon. 9/15/14 6:57am P-90:
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 6:59am Sem Chumbo:
@kat: ah, hummus. Staple around here, with rather a lot of garlic ( I grow about 300 head/year.)
Mon. 9/15/14 7:00am Philo Gristle:
Morning Frank & Gang!
P-90: Much as I like Rafelson's Marvin Gardens (and 5EP), and I may be in a minority on this, one my favorite flicks by him is "Mountains of the Moon." Great old-fashioned adventure.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:03am kat330:
@Sem: 300 /yr?? One a day keeps the doctor away. Bet you never get a cold no matter how polar vortexed you are. Oh, I should have noted the cheese is Swiss.
@Frank: I really do appreciate and adore these studio tracks you find and spin.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:06am fxo:
thanks kat330, 'ppreciate it.
with Rafelson, Jack, with the Monkees, Zappa, et al, with "Head". a fave rave.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:06am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...I is a garlic-eatin' fool
...hard to know online who's rye & who' wry : )
...(life's too short for whitebread is my general feeling)
- but just to be clear Frank:
T*Z*AG = TimeZoneAppropriateGreetings
...which I'm always prepared to extend to SusanSarandon...
Mon. 9/15/14 7:07am P-90:
Rafelson's most def an important director in that generation.
The thing about "Marvin Gardens" is that it was made 7-8 years before "Atlantic City", so while the latter movie shows the crumbling, squalid remains of the fabled resort as it was coming apart at the seams just prior to the casino era, "Marvin" contains quite a visual record of the faded but intact "old" AC just before it really went to shit
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 7:08am Sem Chumbo:
@kat: some of it I trade for free range duck eggs and other country yummies. Fifty are set aside for the next year's crop, planted on Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. But eat garlic, daily.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:09am Philo Gristle:
I wish somebody would put out on decent dvd the flick with Frank's first music score, "The World's Greatest Sinner," even if I'm much more interested in it because of Timothy Carey as the rockabilly preacher God Hilliard...
Mon. 9/15/14 7:10am P-90:
Timothy Carey is a (albeit minor) national treasure.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:11am Philo Gristle:
One of the greatest pleasures in watching old(er) movies is simply seeing the world that was...
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 7:13am Sem Chumbo:
re Zappa, via wikithingy: "...The film features a score composed by a young, pre-Mothers of Invention Frank Zappa. At about the same time, Zappa appeared on The Steve Allen Show, playing a "bicycle concerto" by plucking spokes and blowing through the handlebars. In the interview portion of the program, Zappa talked briefly about scoring the soundtrack for the film, which he called "the worst film ever made," even though the general public wouldn't have the opportunity to see the film he was talking about for another 50 years."
Mon. 9/15/14 7:14am kat330:
@Sem: I don't believe I've ever had a duck egg. Very different flavor from a hen's egg?
Mon. 9/15/14 7:15am P-90:
That Zappa/Steve Allen show clip is on the YouseTubes.
At least it was...
Mon. 9/15/14 7:15am kat330:
@Philo: Yes, like in many 20th c NYC films seeing the Twin Towers always brings a lump to the throat.
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 7:16am Sem Chumbo:
@kat: richer, and denser, I'd say. So much bigger than even *large* chicken eggs, you have to adjust recipes for the amount of white (thus, water). Rarely use anything else here.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:16am fxo:
what's a hen weigh/ way?
Mon. 9/15/14 7:17am Philo Gristle:
I bet even Teddy Roosevelt couldn't eat a dozen of those for breakfast every morning!
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 7:17am Sem Chumbo:
Lots of *Smiles* this morning, thanks, Frank.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:18am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...rye as SteveAllen was - he had all the Hipsters on - from Kerouac to BlueCheer...
Mon. 9/15/14 7:18am kat330:
Nice slide whistle touch here! Philo got me one I've used in a few tracks since b'day 2013.
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 7:18am Sem Chumbo:
@Philo: especially if they were balut-style ;-P
Mon. 9/15/14 7:19am kat330:
@fxo: Depends on how many layers.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:20am fxo:
my layers of sarcasm?
Mon. 9/15/14 7:21am Philo Gristle:
@Sem: After googling Balut-style I wish I hadn't! :)
Mon. 9/15/14 7:22am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...w/ hen layers - Franks' World feels - Down...
- me too Philo...
Mon. 9/15/14 7:22am kat330:
Of rye-ness. Wry-nosity?
Mon. 9/15/14 7:22am Philo Gristle:
Speaking of films, I sadly note the passing of Theodore J. Flicker who did one singularly wonderful film, THE PRESIDENT'S ANALYST, and some other good ones.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:23am kat330:
Sagittarius? Guess they were riding on the Mamas and Papas coattails.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- named Flicker - & did movies ?
- 'President's Analyst' - like ThePrisoner w/ laughs - completely essential.
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 7:26am Sem Chumbo:
@Philo: I had no idea Mr. Flicker had anything to do with bringing a minor CanLit joy to the screen. wikithingy:...although he cites Jacob Two Two Meets the Hooded Fang (1978) among his personal favorites.." Mordecai Richler's kids tale written for one of his sons.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Sagittarius wigkey :
...noisy bit by Firesign !
Mon. 9/15/14 7:29am fxo:
Sagittarius was a project, from Curt Boettcher & Gary Usher (who wrote songs with Brian Wilson, and also produced The Byrds.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:31am Philo Gristle:
@RR Clearly he had no choice in his career path!
@Sem I didn't either, until I just noticed it in the same spot you did! Admittedly, I've not even seen (or read) the more famous Duddy Kravitz.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:31am P-90:
Theo. J. Flicker? Sorry to lose him, he was brilliant.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:32am kat330:
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 7:32am Sem Chumbo:
@P-90, not least for his co-creation of the wacky ensemble show Barney Miller. High-larious consistently ( at the time, anyway.)
Mon. 9/15/14 7:33am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
P's Analyst: ...'you know - all over the world - people hate the Phone Company !'...they knew sumthin', yerknow...
Mon. 9/15/14 7:36am Philo Gristle:
Well, thanks for the lovely sounds as always Frank! Work beckons and it's a cooler morning so need to warm up the bike. Cheerio, owl!
Mon. 9/15/14 7:36am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- Ta Philo.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:39am kat330:
Belated thanks, RR on the Sag. link (I've been multi-tasking and missed a lot).
Mon. 9/15/14 7:42am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- de nada kat; the track is known to us Nuggets-heads...
Mon. 9/15/14 7:43am P-90:
The story of Flicker and Barney Miller is very well-known in Hollywood. He was involved in dreaming up the characters and writing the pilot; after that he has no formal role in producing the show. But the show became a hit, and because he was a "creator" of the show, he wound up with a huge payout that went on for years and years. His story is given as an object lesson for writers in how important it is to get one's self into the "creator" of a series position, that's where the big money is. Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld each made hundreds of millions from their "creator credit" on their show
Mon. 9/15/14 7:46am fxo:
Flicker (I think) also started Second City.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:46am kat330:
It's appeared on a few fxo playlists in the past months, and I always enjoy that "Lese Majesty" LP title. First time I saw it here was just days after I wrote lyrics using that very term and thought it was quite a synch.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:50am fxo:
sync or swim...
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 7:53am Parq:
Digging these last two remixes.
Mon. 9/15/14 7:53am kat330:

good morning fxo & co
Mon. 9/15/14 7:56am kat330:
@Parq: Have you considered renting out your prime handle for a cool million $$?
Debbie Schwartz' vocals remind me of Roseanne Cash.

Mon. 9/15/14 7:59am kat330:
Do you think anyone will actually pay a million dollars for a primo parking space in Manhattan? It surely would be cheaper to use a door-to-door limo service. I can't imagine who'd do it except someone expecting to capitalize on it by selling out "shares" to the space to others. Like The Donald.
Mon. 9/15/14 8:02am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...waiting for the happy day they do biometric laser scans of yer retina to see if you have Credit enuff to breath oxygen for a little while...
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 8:03am Parq:
Kat, on my second date with Missus Parq, we were seated at a windowside table, and we noticed the parking space outside the window was empty. We avidly discussed going out and holding it, co-oping it and making a killing. Ahead of our time, as is too often the case.
Mon. 9/15/14 8:03am kat330:
@RR: What oxygen? By that time, very little of it left.
Mon. 9/15/14 8:04am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Mon. 9/15/14 8:08am marmalade kitty:
people seem passive enough sometimes to allow that kind of eventuality!!!!?
Mon. 9/15/14 8:08am P-90:
"More than a few apocalyptic, dystopian moments..."
Mon. 9/15/14 8:09am kat330:
@mk: They don't call it the "boob tube" for nothing. Makes for a passive public suckling at the teat of conspicuous consumption.
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 8:13am KRYPT:
Hah, I am currently in Glasgow alas it is not sunny, great band though. I wonder if it's sunny in Philadelphia?
Mon. 9/15/14 8:16am fxo:
"boob", "apocalyptic", "passitivity"... ooh, my brain hoits!
KRYPT: Philadelphia is the same weather in Jersey City.
Mon. 9/15/14 8:16am kat330:
@KRYPT: I think the group wanted an ironic name for a rare event. :) So how you voting on Thursday?
oooh, the Chordettes! :)
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 8:17am Parq:
Krypt, keep in mind that, even if it's sunny, it's still Philadelphia. (Hah. I kid. I actually really enjoy the time I spend in the CBL.)

♥ Mon. 9/15/14 8:20am KRYPT:
I Just ask cos Philly is where they hail from, kinda stupid rhetorical question, forgive me. Hi everyone btw, @kat330, it is ayes from me:)
♥ Mon. 9/15/14 8:37am Ken From Hyde Park:
@FXO 7:16 - I pulled the "What's a henway?" joke on my daughter and she completely fell for it. We laughed immensely. A week later, I pulled the "What's a piecost?" gag with equal hilarity.

Much appreciate this morning's show, fxo. See you, and all, next week if the gods allow. Take care.

Wow, a bunch of greatness while I was otherwise engaged!
Thought the beginning of this was like the "Danger Man" theme.
Loved the Nordine. Think instead of "women are revered" from last week, though, he actually meant "women are reviled." Current news shines a light on that.
THANK YOU, fxo! A great list today, beginning to end!

As usual, Frank, your show is the only good thing about a Monday morning.
