"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:10am Meatfucker:

Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:32am Meatfucker:

this reminds me of a 90s sitcom intro for some reason.

Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:36am John Allen:

well, there is a thematic motif that really sticks, but do you mean in a little "too close for comfort" way?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/29/14 6:36am Fuzzy:

This must be John Cage!
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:36am Meatfucker:

Oh, not at all, just made my brain go *ding* I could see a show opening to this.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:37am Meatfucker:

Especially if you were to cut the whole song up and use bits of it for commercial intros and outros.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:38am Meatfucker:

It might be the horns, the 90s really like its horns.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:39am Meatfucker:

Just a weird form of nostalgia I think
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:39am John Allen:

i meant to use the word "leitmotif". and I meant the 90's show with Ted Knight and that Munroe guy
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/29/14 6:41am Fuzzy:

Too Close For Comfort -- had to look it up.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:43am Meatfucker:

So did, I forgot that was a thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/29/14 6:43am Fuzzy:

And rightly so.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 6:44am Meatfucker:

Stolen wifi! All I can give is my enthusiasm, I truly am sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 7:26am sinister dexter:

good morning
  Wed. 10/29/14 7:32am marmalade kitty:

Do you prefer the cat or the dog t-shirts?
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 7:35am John Allen:

good point MK. although I've taken a stand and prefer to not to perpetuate the whole this or that/ dog or cat thing
  Wed. 10/29/14 7:38am marmalade kitty:

I prefer the "cat" one, but can some one explain how a pyramid is a cat?
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 7:41am John Allen:

I cannot. a pyramid is here, and a sphinx is over there. two very different things
Avatar    Wed. 10/29/14 7:50am Sem Chumbo:

@MK: I think the wits at 'FMU T-shirt Design Central might have been linking the "Dogs have owners, cats have staff" meme to this notion: In Illuminati conspiracy theories the presence of a pyramid usually represents the top-down command structure of the Illuminati rulers of the universe. The theory has become more mainstream following the rise of the Occupy Wall Street movement who refer to the rulers as the One Percent."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 7:50am George of Troy:

Thought you might follow up the Kozelek with some War on Drugs (I jest, I jest...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 7:52am AndrewC.:

Cats are (a bit) pyramid shape when they sit down. Mine is anyway. But it is a bit overweight.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 7:54am John Allen:

this is a drug free zone
  Wed. 10/29/14 8:19am marmalade kitty:

Ok I must be a pyramid
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 8:27am katie:

Slow Sad Love Song, a perfect build.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 8:28am common:

good morn, john. everyone.
  Wed. 10/29/14 8:37am Frou Frou the Soccer-Crazy Dog:

Sorry looking animals?! I resent that! Woof!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 8:44am Oberon of Troy:

Seriously! When I heard JA's disparaging remark, I was all like www.flickr.com...
  Wed. 10/29/14 8:50am Frou Frou the Soccer-Crazy Dog:

Yeah, watch out for those teeth, John! I'm small but I'm wirey!
