Sunday morning coming up. Music for the revolution in my head: choogling punks; power pop, both skinny-tied and long-haired; soul shouters and girl groups; bubblegum and acid rock; global fuzz; weirdos and outsiders, and the Weirdos and the Outsiders; Archie Shepp and J. Geils. Plus, live bands.

Good morning Nate and Sem

Salut, fred.

Hey Nate,Sem and Fred. Burning enough to say the spring started.
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 7:02am Sem Chumbo:

Hey, mauri. Do the Finns tan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 7:05am mauri:

tan? whats that?
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 7:06am Sem Chumbo:

Heh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 7:07am Nate K:

Hi Mauri, thanks for checking in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 7:10am mauri:

I dont tan much and I got bad rash from sun for maybe 4 summers. Some ppl in lapland have darker skin.
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 7:13am Sem Chumbo:

The Inuit here, who live well north of 60, also have darker skin. Maybe adaptation because of less protection from UV there? Don't know, just guessing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 7:15am mauri:

I find it attractive.

Bliss reminded
me of Grand Funk
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 7:23am fred:

@Sem: I tend to chuckle at mentions of "darker" skin. The roseish hue we call white was originally prevalent in a tiny part of the world, so I think it makes sense to view *that* as an adaptation to something, though I don't know what. Crappy weather?
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 7:27am BEAVO:

The intro to that Ike Turner tune is the same as the intro to Sho nuff 'n yes I do by Capt. Beefheart from Safe as Milk
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 7:29am Sem Chumbo:

@fred: yes, I am genotype-centric, and your point is well taken. If we did, as all evidence shows, come out of Africa then what you say is most logical. And fascinating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 7:36am Nate K:

@Beavo GFRR works too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 7:41am fred:

I'm generally genotype-confused, so don't read too much into it: I only see some Japanese people as having white skin, most Europeans look pink to me. But that might be a SubGenius influence
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 7:43am Sem Chumbo:

Easter notwithstanding, I thought this was a religion-free program:-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 7:43am fred:

As for the logical/fascinating combo, I was indeed nicknamed Spock in high school (I also can raise one eyebrow, but not the other)
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 7:44am Sem Chumbo:

@fred. Likewise;-)
  Sun. 4/5/15 7:47am Mark:

How do you program a robot to be funky?
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 7:48am Sem Chumbo:

@Mark: with James Brown engrams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 7:49am fred:

@Mark: there's probably research on that out there. A coworker is trying to get a grant to build a rapping robot, so a funky one must be in the works
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 7:54am fred:

@Sem: Do you read PhD comics? I thought you might like the latest one: phdcomics.com...
  Sun. 4/5/15 8:01am Mark:

Yeah this guy knew a couple things about drumming I guess.
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 8:02am Sem Chumbo:

@fred. I had not until this moment. HA!
And I have now added the RSS feed. My thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:06am fred:

@Sem: I think of it as the Dilbert of academia
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 8:09am Sem Chumbo:

I think Dilbert explains corporate think in Everyman's language. The creator is some kind of savant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:10am Nate K:

I strongly recommend the Professor Brothers en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:10am Nate K:

I'll post a link to fliff night later. Good stuff as far as "academic humor" goes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 8:18am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Dilbert is the truth.
Hullo NateK & other Combusticators.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:20am fred:

I work in an academic place (as a technician) and used to work in the corporate world. I sometimes feel PhD was in my office just like Dilbert used to be. Thanks Nate, I'll check Professor Brothers later
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 8:22am Sean B.:

@NateK I always felt "Midnight Lamp" was a god awful recording of a beautiful song; But as I listen more closely it had to be recorded that way intentionally;Jimi's point only comes across stronger because of such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:23am Polyus:

Heck yeah Coloured Balls. I said HECK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:26am Nate K:

@Sean B, interesting take. Jimi has to do what Jimi has to do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 8:27am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I believe 'Midnight Lamp' had been around before other 'Electric Ladyland' sessions - & those sessions were all over the place I think I heard Eddie Kramer say - in different formats from maybe 4-track to 16...Frustration w/ final Mastering of carefully fussed-over tracks was par for the course then...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 8:29am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...fuddy old Engineers compressing everything flat & the like...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:30am fred:

@RRN63: How do you feel about remastered editions? Sometimes the original tracks are there but the creator isn't anymore
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 8:33am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- as w/ Jimi ; I'd trust Eddie Kramer pretty well.
- case by case basis I'd say...take 'Raw Power' or 'Pet Sounds' - or the Beatles for that matter; every version has its' own qualities...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 8:34am Sean B.:

"Midnight Lamp" IS my favorite song so congrats for playing it. It is a simply stunning musical achievement
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 8:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I figure the goal is make it sound like I'm in the Studio itself listening to thee Master - w/ no other Medium inbetween. Another factor is the Artist's stated or known intent (he always wanted more Bass, what have you) - & yet another is the Historical Cultural context: it was a mistake, &/or the Medium was limited (1960s things mixed for transistor radio, maybe) - but it's what everyone grew up on for 50 years...Indeed: which is the 'real' version...blahblahblah...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/5/15 8:51am Sean B.:

Well it sounds like your in this shallow & void plastic tunnel; Which sums up the theme of the song really well. That's all i know.....
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 8:51am Sem Chumbo:

Always insightful, RevRab. Really like your take on all things musical.
@Nate: been cooking up dinner for 15 today, much appreciated the soundtrack. Keep it burnin' hot. See ya next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:52am fred:

Nate, thanks for another great show. It covered some ground -- Male Gaze and Art Blakey in the same set -- while making it all belong together. That's exactly why a DJ deserves the uppercase treatment.
Avatar    Sun. 4/5/15 8:58am Sem Chumbo:

Warren had it right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/5/15 8:58am Nate K:

Thanks, @Fred I really appreciate that; that's what I try to do!
