"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.)

Good morning. The challenging stillness of Karla Borecky.
  Wed. 2/18/15 6:13am Cooh John:

Good frozen morning. Thanks for the wake up soundtrack.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 6:17am Mugsy:

Beautiful brisk morning with no wind these temps are okay with me.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 6:18am John Allen:

hey fellas. we're all gonna stay in one place for awhile. don't move
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 6:21am Sem Chumbo:

Morning, John Allen, and those fixed in place.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 6:43am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Morning people! Frozen in place like an Alaskan wood frog...
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 6:47am John Allen:

yknow those frogs can freeze/defrost ad finitum, yet if you defrost meat once and refreeze, it's pretty much garbage
  Wed. 2/18/15 7:19am Phillip in Brooklyn:

That's true. If you want to get yourself really sick eat red meat that's been defrosted and refrozen. 4 whole days in the ER sick as a dog taught me that lesson
  Wed. 2/18/15 7:22am Phillip in Brooklyn:

Once you get bed bugs? You might as well bulldoze the building because even if you hire a professional exterminator? They will still come back
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 7:25am John Allen:

actually if you freeze bedbugs, they will not come back. Over the course of several weeks I'd put a stack of books at a say or two at a time in the freezer to make certain bugs were not living inside the spines. critters can make you paranoid on a very cellular level.
  Wed. 2/18/15 7:27am Phillip in Brooklyn:

$700 for a brand new bed! Because I can't have any bed I have arthritis in my back. And the little F'kers have made it their home after 3 days! I feel like setting fire to the whole damn building!!!
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 7:30am John Allen:

I visually inspected the inside of each of 8000 records to make sure no bugs were inside the jackets before I moved.
  Wed. 2/18/15 7:32am Phillip in Brooklyn:

$350 dollars to have the apartment bombed with pesticide $100 for new linen.
  Wed. 2/18/15 7:34am Phillip in Brooklyn:

Does anyone know if the Hudson River is frozen over? I feel like jumping off the George Washington bridge!
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 7:37am Polyus:

Ugh, the absolute worst.You have my sympathies. I have been made a meal of by these little monsters.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 7:39am Polyus:

There is a vast well of info here:bedbugger.com
  Wed. 2/18/15 7:40am emile:

Hey yall
  Wed. 2/18/15 7:40am Phillip in Brooklyn:

You ain't kidding! They just made a meal of my legs and arms! Now I have to smear on the special cream that a poison after I was bitten to death all night:-(
  Wed. 2/18/15 7:43am Phillip in Brooklyn:

I'm soooooo tired! I'm scratching off my damn skin! I'm going to go sleep on the floor in the kitchen
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 7:53am John Allen:

i remember the day when my neighbor saw me moving out, she said "where will you go"? i just said "somewhere else". She looked at me as if I was betraying a cult/ like I had choices. But I had a way out. I wasn;t a victim, like her.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:01am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Hang on in there Phillip. It's hard to imagine now, but there will be a time in the future when you're telling stories about the crazy bedbug situation back in 2015, and laughing about it. All things pass.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:06am glenn:

huh. maybe that's WHY THEY TELL PEOPLE NOT TO EAT DEFROSTED AND REFROZEN MEAT.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:09am John Allen:

glenn is right. maybe there is a parallel moral to be learned here
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:12am glenn:

oh, but even better - how many people die in lightning strikes every year after being told not to shelter under trees in a thunder storm? morons.
  Wed. 2/18/15 8:14am tino:

kaiser's best work
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 8:16am George of Troy:

Good morning John and gang. Sorry I have nothing to contribute to the bedbug / rancid meat discussion. I once suffered through a flea infestation if that counts.
Oh, and some bats once too, yeah.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:17am quinn:

well, this is a pretty song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 8:17am common:

Wednesday...hello!
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:17am Marcel M:

Good morning John and everyone. Liking this Henry Kaiser a lot.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:20am Marcel M:

Wow, check this dude out: en.wikipedia.org...
  Wed. 2/18/15 8:23am Emile:

I will make the space for the 5th disc. So beautiful.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:23am glenn:

nenry looks a little possessed in that pic.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:26am glenn:

nenry? sheesh.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:28am Marcel M:

I like the carrot hanging off his guitar. What was that box set called?
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:31am quinn:

This bat story also happened in the computer game Willy Beamish
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:31am quinn:

Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:32am Marcel M:

That game looks... pretty sweet. I want it.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:33am Sem Chumbo:

Always up for a trip to Brazil, less so for the GW Bridge, most days.
  Wed. 2/18/15 8:36am tino:

lightnin's best work
  Wed. 2/18/15 8:36am Terry:

Tennis rackets work great for bats. Just hold it out in their flight path. Their echolocation won't "see" the strings and they smack right into it. This only stuns them. Then cover with a pot or bowl and get a record album. Slide the album under the bowl n' bat and carry outside. Leave the bat under a bush or somewhere where a hawk or cat won't get it right away. After awhile it wakes up, wonders what happened, and flies away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 8:37am George of Troy:

The flea infestation was my own doing (and born of kindness, really). I took in a stray cat without following proper protocols.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:37am John Allen:

terry, I think you have just written a new PSA for the station
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:38am Marcel M:

What was the name of that box set of Henry Kaiser, John?
  Wed. 2/18/15 8:39am Terry:

The only tough part is choosing the right album
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:42am John Allen:

i guess "blizzard of oz" would be sort of poetic here in this case. or "bat chain puller"
  Wed. 2/18/15 8:45am Terry:

The Best of Cream - Heavy Cream has the song "anyone for tennis" on it.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:46am glenn:

howard devoto autographed my copy of j.p. donleavy's dealfonce tennis, since i didn't have any other paper on me.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 9:04am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Thanks for easing me into another Wednesday, John. Stay positive, everyone.
