My camera ran away with my wife, so no cassette cover pics today.

hey Tony! Don't get hissterical, now!

oh oh. my girlfriend left me for a tractor salesman.

Good morning, Tony, and good whatever, Drummer streamers!

i got a john deere letter.

Heya, V Priceless, Glenn, and Listener James!

My camera and wife will come back to me soon enough. Probably acting like I don't know what they were up to.
Avatar Tue. 3/3/15 12:01pm glenn:

at least there will be pix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:02pm Snortley:

My girlfriend left me for her husband. Plenty of pix, though.

hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:06pm Tony Coulter:

Howdy, Snortley and DCE!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:06pm Parq:

Seen on the streets of NYC. Woman, 30ish, dragging a camera along the sidewalk as she walks. She made sure not to miss any puddle or snow-clump along the way. At the end of the block, she stopped in front of a luxury apt buidling, stomped on the camera a couple of times, and strode inside -- the concierge didn't even look up, so obviously she's well known there. Not hard to guess who owned the camera or what pictures were on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:07pm Tony Coulter:

Wow!

Hola, Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:07pm DCE:

promising!

@Parq
Sounds like one of my wife's performance art pieces from the early '80s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:08pm Tony Coulter:

Here's the cover of the cassette on now: www.discogs.com...

Los Doug Dougs!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:10pm Parq:

@Doug: Oh, it was a performance, all right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:15pm Tony Coulter:

Funny thing about coffee, for me at least: I'm a fairly heavy coffee drinker, usually about 4 cups a day. As soon as I get sick at all, however, even a mild cold, I simply cannot drink the stuff. Just seems totally unpleasant. I've had a cold since last Wednesday, so immediately went on the coffee bandwagon. Today I had my first cup in almost a week -- so, obviously, I must be almost all better.

Funny, I guess, because caffeine is definitely addictive -- but also very easy to kick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:19pm Cecile:

hopefully both your wife and the camera will be back soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:20pm Cecile:

if you kick caffeine as a result of being sick or something, it's easy to kick. But if you make a point of it, it's pretty hard, IME
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:20pm northguineahills:

I can't drink coffee any more. The only time I do is when I'm really tired, and need a caffeine boost. But, all it does is barely keep me awake, and doesn't help me focus. Then I feel like shit the rest of the day and the coffee tries to race through my intestines as fast as possible. I probably killed my ability to drink coffee in grad school, when I was drinking close to two pots of coffee a day.
Avatar Tue. 3/3/15 12:23pm glenn:

4 cups? hell, i have that by 7 ack emma.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:23pm listener james from westwood:

I was a 3 Diet Coke/day caffeinator but had to cut out owing to neuro/cardiac symptoms. Tapering made quitting easier. Now I only dose if I need to survive a long ride home or on very rare work all-nighters. Potent little molecule.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:25pm Cecile:

I have cut down a lot, but I drink 3-4 cups or espresso shots a day
  Tue. 3/3/15 12:25pm Dean:

Caffeine is not addictive. Hell, I've been drinking it for over 30 years, and I'm still not addicted to it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:25pm Carmichael:

Nuttin' but tea for me. Hiya Tony and peeps!

Heya, Cecile, Dean, & Carmichael!

My wife didn't really run away, of course -- just traveling for work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:28pm Tony Coulter:

Doug has very kindly offered to add discogs photos of today's three cassettes to the playlist while I drink coffee and type. Thanks, Doug!
Avatar    Tue. 3/3/15 12:28pm βrian:

Espresso is an aphrodisiac. Gotta be careful with that in the workplace.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:28pm Cecile:

I figured something like that, but I don't assume anything anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:29pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, βrian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:30pm Cecile:

My workplace is like saltpetre for the soul. No chance of anything happening with my daily cup
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:34pm listener james from westwood:

@Tony w00t! Doug's a mensch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:34pm Tony Coulter:

And there they be: the covers of today's cassettes. THANKS, DOUG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:36pm Cecile:

this is kind of badass right about now.
Avatar Tue. 3/3/15 12:36pm Kay:

The one for Fondation fits perfectly for the tape hiss theme.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:37pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Kay! You're right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:49pm northguineahills:

This reminds me of the original Sim City theme music.
  Tue. 3/3/15 12:50pm Dean:

Reminds me of Einzelganger.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 12:56pm Tony Coulter:

Ivan Coaquette (half of Fondation) also plays on these great records:

I tuned in upon receiving a gchat from my husband saying "ur kinda tunes on Drummer" and I'm glad I did!! This improves my Tuesday.

White beats ashen.

Glad to hear it!

French foundations have no need of our silly Anglo-Saxon 'u.'
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:10pm Tony Coulter:

French organizations are fonded, not founded.
Avatar Tue. 3/3/15 1:11pm glenn:

fonds.
In archival science, a fonds is the aggregation of documents that originate from the same source.[1] More specifically, a fonds distinguishes itself from a collection through its organic nature, as archival documents that have been naturally accumulated (made or received) by an individual, company, institution, etc. as a byproduct of business or day-to-day activities
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:13pm Tony Coulter:

Fonds are very distinguished.
  Tue. 3/3/15 1:15pm MrFab:

Fondation: the tub of goo fondue is dipped into?
Avatar    Tue. 3/3/15 1:17pm βrian:

Fondue *is* the goo.
  Tue. 3/3/15 1:18pm Dean:

Fonds are all about provenance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

MrFab!

A German restaurant here in Portland had a truly weird sign out front this past Valentine's Day: "May your love be as warm as our fondue." (Warm and gooey?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:20pm Uncle Michael:

Fondue is not about Provence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:21pm Tony Coulter:

No, that wasn't your phone ringing.

  Tue. 3/3/15 1:23pm Dean:

Please don't tease me about my stutter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:24pm listener james from westwood:

Sounding manically Devoid in music but depressively Ian Curtis in vocals!
  Tue. 3/3/15 1:25pm Dean:

Joy Devoid
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:25pm Tony Coulter:

Spud Division
  Tue. 3/3/15 1:27pm Dean:

A divided spud is a French fry de Provence avec aioli.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:27pm Tony Coulter:

Talking of spuds, I like your cowboy spud, Jeff G.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

SO, by the way, the marathon premium I'll be offering this year will be a kind-of "Tape Hiss" best-of. Choice tracks selected from (unarchived) programs past.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:44pm Tony Coulter:

Perhaps including something from this week -- I'm not done putting it together yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:50pm Tony Coulter:

I've always wondered: Is Thomas Dolby dolby A or dolby B?
  Tue. 3/3/15 1:51pm Dean:

Depends on which side of the EP you're spinning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 1:52pm Tony Coulter:

True DAT (tape).
  Tue. 3/3/15 1:54pm Tim:

Was his father Dolby SR?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:00pm Tony Coulter:

Ha! (Hola, Tim!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:19pm Jeff Golick:

That's no spud, Tony. It's a diseased lung who apparently answers to the name Jeff. cdn1.lockerdome.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:21pm Looms:

Thx for playing these fine tapes, Tony.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

You're welcome, Looms! Greetings!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:26pm Tony Coulter:

@ Jeff G: A diseased lung, huh? Up close he looks more like a dissolute sponge to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:30pm Jeff Golick:

Tony, the same is true of me.

You know Jacqueline Humbert & David Rosenboom's DAYTIME VIEWING? This sorta reminds me of that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:32pm Tony Coulter:

I don't, but I should -- really like both of 'em.
  Tue. 3/3/15 2:35pm Neg-guh-tor:

You put this on a marathon premium a few years ago! I love Doll Parts very much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:37pm Tony Coulter:

You're right! I did. I should play their LP "Carnival at Sea" more often.
  Tue. 3/3/15 2:38pm Neg-guh-tor:

I just ordered it from Discogs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:39pm Jeff Golick:

(Tony, check your email after the show...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:40pm Tony Coulter:

@ Neg-guh-tor: They also have another tape, which I've never heard -- their first release. Hope to hear it one day!
Avatar    Tue. 3/3/15 2:40pm V Priceless:

swell show, TC - thanks!
  Tue. 3/3/15 2:41pm Neg-guh-tor:

I saw that. Two tapes and the LP. Neither of the tapes were available or I'd bought it all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:42pm Tony Coulter:

@ Jeff G: Will do! I'm planning to send you a track for your marathon use, by the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:42pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, V Priceless! Glad you approve!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/3/15 2:45pm cklequ:

....Missed most of the show but i'm really loving these Doll Parts. And really looking forward to your premium.
