Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 6:01am Scott McDowell:

how are you this fine morning?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/2/15 6:05am fred:

Good morning Scott.
The home page still shows Bill Mac's playlist, did you forget something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 6:06am Scott McDowell:

sometimes it take a minute or two to switch over, should be ok now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/2/15 6:07am fred:

Yes, it's ok now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 6:10am Scott McDowell:

oh good, thanks!

Good morning Scott, fred and fellow rallyers. And the band drone on....

Morning, Scott, and tuners-inners from all over.

Morning, Scott and listeners. @Scott: did you went to Argentina x Ecuador?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 6:44am Scott McDowell:

no I did not 2-1 I hear.
  Thu. 4/2/15 6:48am doca:

Yeah Ecuador played well against Argentina
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 7:16am Stepchild:

Love the internet motherfucker!
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 7:18am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Hey everyone. Nice to hear that bit of Inherent Vice thrown in. Loved the book, loved the film, but didn't even realise that was Joanna Newsom until the credits rolled.

And thanks for playing the Go-Betweens too, Scott. Always welcome in these ears.
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 7:21am Nasty Les:

@Canterbury - yeah, that track was great. Johnny Greenwood channeling Can. Also enjoyed the film a lot, although the person I saw it with (who hadn't read the book) said they were pretty baffled and basically didn't understand anything that had happened.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 7:22am Scott McDowell:

The film is totally disorienting.
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 7:28am Nasty Les:

@Scott - For sure. I did warn them not to expect any simple resolutions at the end. I wonder if anyone will try to make a film of 'Bleeding Edge'.
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 7:29am the Canterbury wood-elf:

I have no idea what I'd have thought of Inherent Vice if I wasn't already a Pynchon freak. I might have enjoyed the disorientation. I suppose I'll never know (unless I suffer amnesia at some point in the future and see it again).

Bleeding Edge would be an interesting challenge for any filmmaker...
Avatar    Thu. 4/2/15 7:30am Sem Chumbo:

Read Bleeding Age in February. A Pynchon fan on these boards, familiar with his entire output, found it the most accessible of all his work. Pretty dense going, I'd say.
Avatar    Thu. 4/2/15 7:32am Chris from DC:

Never heard Carsten Meinert. This is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 7:33am Scott McDowell:

I have read Lot 49 and started Gravity's Rainbow 12x. I did not read Inherent Vice but loved the movie, felt like a Pynchon book reads to me.
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 7:33am Nasty Les:

@Sem - Yeah, I'd agree its probably his most accessible, but that doesn't say much in absolute terms about accessibility ;-)
Avatar    Thu. 4/2/15 7:34am Sem Chumbo:

@Nasty Les: yes, a relative thing, certainly.
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 7:36am the Canterbury wood-elf:

I must admit, reading both Inherent Vice and Bleeding Edge after all his earlier works, I was initially disappointed at the accessibility levels (maybe just a kind of snobbish exclusionary instinct - just felt a bit lightweight), but before long was completely won over. TP has worked out how to achieve what he wants in a simpler, but no-less-effective way. Quite an achievement.
  Thu. 4/2/15 7:39am Phil:

It sounds like you have a torn ACL, not an MCL. The ACL is on the inside and will need to be fixed. I tore both and know that pain on the inside, it sounds like it might be repairable - My needed replacement. Good luck+
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 7:40am Nasty Les:

@Canterbury - I agree. One thing I've always enjoyed about Pynchon, which came through as well in Bleeding Edge I think, is how well he understands and plays with scientific/mathematical/technical ideas - I don't think there's any writer who does that better.
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 7:49am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Absolutely. I've got a PhD in mathematics, so I can tell when an author is faking that kind of stuff. He can write about differential equations or the entropic aspects of number theory in a way which is both beautifully poetic and totally accurate! I can see why some people started to think "Thomas Pynchon" was the front for some kind of cabal of writers - no one person should be able to know all this stuff!
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 8:02am Nasty Les:

Yep, as a Particle Physicist I'd say the same thing. Not once have I read something and thought 'well, that's not quite right...'
Avatar Thu. 4/2/15 8:03am the Canterbury wood-elf:

This Impulsive Machinations brings to mind Mike Ratledge's organ playing with Soft Machine (and, more recently, Toby McClaren's with Led Bib). Very cool, thanks Scott...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 8:06am Scott McDowell:

Great distorto organ sound, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 8:06am Mike East:

damn, I didn't even finish college. Hope I'm still welcome here. I did read Crying of Lot 49, which at the time, I thought I got, but in retrospect, I think I have no idea what that book was about. Looking forward to watching Inherent Vice, though I just dropped my netflix DVD plan, so it might be a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 8:08am Mike East:

...also, loving these sounds

Weird, Scott, I was just thinking about cat power's Satisfaction this morning

This Tashi Dorji + others is fantastic!

Loved your spins this morning, Scott. See you next time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/2/15 8:50am Stepchild:

Nice stuff Scott!
