Good quiet evening to you, coelacanth!

Great stuff, as ever, Ms T! Greetings from oddly cold NorCal!

haha! hang in there Monica (not to be confused with dj Monica and "listener Monica"). there'll be something you don't like pretty soon!
(that's a benign side effect of freedom)

You're Everything That I'm Not - Translator
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 10:32pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: The way I describe it is I like the framework WFMU has created but to say I like each thing hung in that framework is nutty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 10:34pm coelacanth:

("everyWHERE that i'm not" !)
Avatar Tue. 12/29/15 10:36pm Wm.:

Oh goodness, Translator! I used to really like them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 10:37pm coelacanth:

yes Jake. i don't think it's possible to like everything on wfmu...not for thinking people anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 10:39pm coelacanth:

i really liked that song; but i can't say i remember the rest of the album.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 10:51pm Irene Trudel:

I used to LOVE Translator (still do). Been meaning to play some of their music for a couple of weeks and didn't get around to it. I've discovered lead singer Steve Barton has some solo material I've overlooked. Maybe next week.

The missus just saw Laurie w/ some of the guys from Oneida. I wish I had the funds to have had gone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:02pm coelacanth:

ngh that's got to be amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:05pm Irene Trudel:

Wow, ngh! I love how Laurie keeps expanding her boundaries.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:07pm coelacanth:

wow -Rickie Lee's voice reminds me of Melanie Safka here.
...'didn't see that coming!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:11pm Irene Trudel:

I never realized that before, coelacanth, but Rickie really does sound like Melanie on this one at least.
  Tue. 12/29/15 11:16pm herb.nyc:

Joyeaux 2016 a tout!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:24pm northguineahills:

I forgot to ask for some her video footage, but now she's out of the country, so, now I have to wait until she gets back after new years. She said it was mostly a percussive affair w/ Laurie on her electric violin and interjecting w/ her monologues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:26pm northguineahills:

I've told Kurt this before, but a decade ago, I was at my friends' electro-acoustic improv party at the bar, and Laurie sat next to me. We had a normal conversation and about music etc. I was surprised I didn't squee, as just a few weeks beforehand, I found her 'United States Live" box set on vinyl at a second hand shop for relatively cheap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:35pm Irene Trudel:

That's a great story, ngh! I've met Laurie a few times and am always surprised at how normal and unassuming she is. Very sweet too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:47pm JakeGould:

From all I hear, Laurie Anderson is still a true NYC-artist. Meaning she knows who she is, but she is approachable and a general human to those she interacts with. A friend has a pic of Lou Reed a few years before he passed away where he was waiting to pick up Chinese take-out on his own from a local place… I mean he could have had that delivered… But there he is. I think that is what I miss in modern NYC; the new celebs in the neighborhoods truly live in Ivory/glass towers. Very little pragmatism in 2015 NYC celeb culture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:58pm Irene Trudel:

Happy New Year everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:58pm JakeGould:

Goodnight Irene! See/hear you next year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/29/15 11:58pm coelacanth:

Thank you Irene 'twas beautiful.
ciao peeps

Thanks Irene, a great listen back on some of the great music you played this year
Avatar Mon. 1/4/16 9:08am Van in DC:

Finally catching up!! And right off the bat, I was already immediately thinking SANDY! Only to be pleasantly fooled (again) by the lovely voice of Sharron :)
Avatar Mon. 1/4/16 9:15am Van in DC:

Oooh Meg! Nicely done...
