Hello Dave. The Grammys. People. Things.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 9:05pm Dave Mandl:

Hey, Jake. Yeah, every week it's some damn awards show.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 9:05pm Dave Mandl:

Or the Super Bowl.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 9:08pm dk:

i wonder how they had awards shows or sporting events before twitter. doesn't really seem possible. i suspect they didn't exist.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 9:09pm Dave Mandl:

Yeah, the show itself seems secondary now. It's all about Twitter.

I think I'm giving him too much.

Helloooooooo (like Lloyd Lindsay Young)

Folks, anyone help me find a new place for all my awards. It’s getting ridiculous here.
  Sun. 2/8/15 9:15pm Carmichael:

Maybe give the flautist some?

Greetings dk, RRN63, Mugsy, Carmichael.

I thought the Superbowl was the time of year when people reflected on how disappointed they are with their current TV
  Sun. 2/8/15 9:22pm Carmichael:

I am always disappointed with my TV. Without the eternally caustic Anthony Bourdain, I would be living in a van down by the river.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 9:22pm JakeGould:

All of these “World’s Greatest Uncle” awards are just taking up too much space.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/8/15 9:23pm Andrew Waterloo:

Have you seen the World's Silliest Dad trophy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/8/15 9:24pm Ike:

Disappointed in TV? What? It's the New Golden Age of TV. There's record-breaking heaps of great diamonds scattered through the 1000 channels of dreck and dumb awards shows. (But WFMU is even better.)
  Sun. 2/8/15 9:27pm tr;sh:

Digital tv brought new meaning to the click-track. Beep beep.

Hi Dave hi all.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 10:11pm JakeGould:

Tnanks Mugsy, at the end of the day no other award can be as loved ironically—as well as non ironically—as the “World’s Greatest [Relation]!” item.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 10:26pm JakeGould:

I can smell the mustaches on this Hawkwind.

  Sun. 2/8/15 10:47pm rw:

Hello! Been dancing to the show all evening, but taking a break now. Is it Legend or Leg End?
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 10:48pm Dave Mandl:

Officially "Legend," but I'm pretty sure it was a pun.
  Sun. 2/8/15 11:04pm rw:

I just looked on the jacket of my copy of the LP (Red Records 001) and the only mention of the title is in pretty small print, "The Henry Cow Legend" but on the disc itself it's printed as Leg End. Seems to be ambiguous. I see it on the internet both ways but as Legend on the Recommended Records site. Certainly a pun though with the sock on the jacket. Okay. I just spent too much time on that. Will get back to work now...
  Sun. 2/8/15 11:04pm rw:

I mean back to dancing.
  Sun. 2/8/15 11:08pm headphones:

He's not chewing gum on mike, is he?
  Sun. 2/8/15 11:09pm ScottC:

"A Happy Family" is the name of an uproariously funny Japanese movie from the '80's. I saw it in a theater in SF and people were falling out of their seats - Che k it out...
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 11:11pm Dave Mandl:

@headphones: Me? Actually it was a lozenge. You caught me.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 11:13pm JakeGould:

Speaking of lozenge’s, anyone else in NYC checkout this NYC subway bacteria survey. Nasty! graphics.wsj.com...
  Sun. 2/8/15 11:19pm ScottC:

Funny how the mind works - it's not A Happy Family - it's " A Crazy Family" - crying funny.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 11:25pm northguineahills:

Most bacteria has never had its DNA mapped anyways, (seriously there are x 10n species IDed, and most never will be due to the rate of mutation and inability to find most). Then, when you get in to monerans, that's nearly an infinite amount of microbes. That said, as disgusting as the subways seem to be, it's been at least 13 years since I've stepped in urine or seen feces on the subway.

btw, I hope you're feeling better Jake (you were sick earlier this week, right? sorry if I misremembered), Something is going around, as I'm starting to feel like I'm getting ill (so far, just minimally). Hope everyone feels well and healthy!

Cool, Arcane Device, new to me and sounds like machinery falling out of my brain and into my cochlear recesses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/8/15 11:26pm Ike:

Jake, are you still trying to razz me? Get off the apostrophes' lawn! And yes, we already knew there was horrifying bacteria on the subway. I use gloves when handling any poles, and I get sick less frequently now that I never touch my face while riding, and always wash hands after disembarking.
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 11:32pm JakeGould:

Ooo la la… Ike “disembarks”!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/8/15 11:36pm fleep:

Why pick on subways? Are movie theaters sterilized between shows? Bacteria cells outnumber human cells 10 to 1 for any given person, humans are basically armatures for bacteria.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/8/15 11:36pm ░Ī Ҡ ℰ░::

Ha, yes, I'm so fancy and dignified, what with my often nodding off if I manage to snag a seat, and possibly even snoring a bit, maybe even drooling on a bad day, while my hair sticks up every which way. I'm sure my fellow D/N train riders really look up to me and think I'm super classy.
  Sun. 2/8/15 11:36pm rw:

Man, this samba is groovy!
Avatar Sun. 2/8/15 11:42pm JakeGould:

The bacteria talk reminds me: Gotta order a supply of Wet Naps. Later!
  Sun. 2/8/15 11:43pm tr;sh:

"monerans". Yeah, NGH!

Spectacular show tonight. I've learned 3 important things: 1. the Grammys are on, so the TV needs to stay off, 2. I've apparently forgotten I was supposed to track down Happy Family music (as of several years ago), and 3. Annie Gosfield exists (never heard of her). Best from SF.
  Sun. 2/8/15 11:59pm rw:

Thank you Dave! Can't wait for the Zoltan story. Have a good week!
  Mon. 2/9/15 12:00am tr;sh:

Have a great wander, Dave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 12:00am Andrew Waterloo:
