Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Microphone soup is not as easy as it sounds to make. The twisted wires can be stringy, but when properly prepared the diaphragm is a delicacy.

Yeah, it's two covers in one. I was just reading about it the other day when some other fmu DJ (already forgot who it was) played it. This is kind of a fun related list: www.complex.com...

So what kind of beef are you starting with? I haven't cooked with barley, so not much help there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:30pm Uncle Michael:

I think it's some chuck. The mrs. picked it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/7/14 12:31pm pacific standard simon:

You got a dutch oven?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:31pm Mike East:

If I put barley in my soup, I usually cook it separately and add it when I serve. It tends to soak up too much and get mushy if you leave it in the soup too long...which is okay for the first time you eat it, but the leftovers get mushy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:31pm Mike East:

Iggy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:32pm Mike East:

I'm sick of the dips, too.

Sounds wise, M. East.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:33pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, Simon.

I'm inclined to go that route, Mike.
  Fri. 11/7/14 12:34pm Dean:

A trio of barely adult women has a huge hit these days, "Bang! Bang!" My 8YO plays it incessantly. I keep forgetting to play a tune of the same name by Iggy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/7/14 12:35pm pacific standard simon:

Brown the meat, then cook covered, low and slow, in sweet dark beer (to go with the barley, hey!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:35pm Mike East:

also good if you cook the barley with whatever stock you are using instead of water so it gets some of the flavor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:35pm Uncle Michael:

Dean, play the Squeeze song and every version of Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down), too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:37pm Uncle Michael:

I like that. I'll do the beef in beer in a dutch oven. I'll add that to the sweated aromatics, that then get butter and the mushrooms. Beef in last then stock. Barley separately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/7/14 12:37pm pacific standard simon:

And also "Bang Shang-a-lang" (zat how it's spelled?) by The Archies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/7/14 12:39pm pacific standard simon:

A brown ale or porter would be my choices.

HEY! I have this LP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:39pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:41pm Uncle Michael:

Would you drain the beef and discard the beer liquid or put it in the soup?

Hi kat! Hi tr:sh!
  Fri. 11/7/14 12:43pm kat330:

Great thing about thyme (and sage) is it survives our winter in the herb garden. I have fresh thyme all winter long, great for roast fowl, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:44pm Uncle Michael:

We still have some fresh thyme but for some reason it was very mild this year...not very flavorful. Dunno why.
  Fri. 11/7/14 12:45pm kat330:

You have a drought?

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/7/14 12:45pm pacific standard simon:

Plenty of thyme and onions (or leeks). I would take the beef out when it's tender, skim fat as necessary, and turn the heat up to reduce the cooking liquid, then add some beef or mushroom stock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 12:46pm Uncle Michael:

A lot of great ideas. I think I have a plan.

still b/p: Saw Jerry in DY at the Kennedy Center in 1996. He was spot-on for that role and played it to the hilt. It's that kind of show and the audience knew what they were in for. (Plus I wrote him a fan letter saying how good he was and he called me to thank me.)

A great show, 5-hours long! Cushing has a great collection and he plays all aspects of blues, not just the country stuff that got the Brits all hot and bothered.

OK, letting my ignorance show, wasn't the bed music I heard last break by the Beatles?
Avatar Fri. 11/7/14 2:45pm kat330:

Aha, found it!: "The Beatles instrumental "Flying" (from the album Magical Mystery Tour) is the theme for "Tales of Airport Security."

pacific standard simon: The google says mp2 is some kind of broadcast industry favored format. Lossy but compact I guess.
Avatar Fri. 11/7/14 2:47pm kat330:

And, UM, just sent that email again from my gmail -- pls. let me know if it shows? I hadn't heard the Shearer bed music for several weeks because I guess he hasn't had any "Tales of Airport Security" stories to tell of late.

Yes, kat...that was a George Martin thing from Yellow Submarine

You've done a very odd thing to me today UM, "The Windmills Of Your Mind" was a favorite of my late father's and The Brides of Funkenstein was introduced to me by a friend of mine who passed away young (34) of cancer right after 9/11. Makes me feel a little wistful on this cloudy Friday.

Great comments, peanut gallery.

@Pedro!
I actually thought that Blues Before Sunrise was just a local Chicago radio show.
Avatar Fri. 11/7/14 2:53pm kat330:

@Still: And way back up there: I never knew he hated them? Seems only flattery he'd imitate them with his segment "Karzai Talk."
Avatar Fri. 11/7/14 2:55pm kat330:

Gee, everyone's jumping ship early.
@UM: I'll chime in my "thanks!" and best wishes to your father. Healing vibes }}}}}}}

If we can briefly turn this into "Simpsons Time," the first time I heard "Ev'rytime" was in the first Sideshow Bob episode, warbled by Kelsey Grammer, way back in Season 1.
Avatar    Fri. 11/7/14 2:55pm Alex In Illinois:

Wait! It IS local. It just did not occur to me that people outside Chicago listened to it.

Shearer HATED their laughing-at-selves thing, to a seemingly disproportionate degree of hostility. Even refused to promo their show in standard coming-up-next fashion when they followed him on the air at some point.

Hinky Dinky Time is like Saturday morning cartoons for me -- when the show's over, I'll have to get showered, dressed and other serious things.

Sorry to learn that Shearer has such a huge stick up his ass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 2:58pm Uncle Michael:

I love being the cartoons of adult life. That's great!
Avatar    Fri. 11/7/14 2:59pm Alex In Illinois:

And yes in case anyone needs confirmation Harry Shearer is "Le Show". I recall an episode years ago when he did the voices of George W. Bush and Pat Robertson.
Robertson: "With all due respect, God has been talking to me longer"
W: "With all due respect, God made ME President".

sad to say, missed first 3/4s,. Will be hittin' the archives on the fly.great last quarter!
Avatar Fri. 11/7/14 3:00pm kat330:

@ALex: COnfirmation was only about certain bed music he uses in his segments, not that he does "Le Show." I've been listening for over 30 years to him. :)

Alex in Illinois: Blues Before Sunrise is on a bunch of stations across the U.S. and maybe into Canada. Used to be distributed on the NPR satellite but I think he just posts it on that ftp site, probably saving a fortune. It used to originate from Chicago's WBEZ both Saturdays and Sundays but that station gutted most music years ago. And I think Cushing moved to Michigan last year. Still a great show decades later. And so much easier to hear on the Internet and ftp.

@Kat330: I thought that someone was doubting you that Harry Shearer is the guy, but I could not find what you were responding to.
