  Thu. 2/25/16 3:28pm Brainiac:

We are on the eve of a tremendous new chapter in history and boy are my palms sweaty. We stand together on the precipice of the howling void trying desperately to remember why we shouldn’t jump. But it’s hard to think over all this howling so lets put aside all the pesky reasoning that divides us as a nation and come together in mindless unity. Let the screaming vocals of Burzum covering Mr. Giant Man in double time be the soundtrack of our demise. With just one step we take the glorious plunge into the bottomless cistern of doom. I’m leaning into it. With a demonic grin I let gravity deliver me to my fate, but I don’t want to go alone.

I wanna hold your yaaarrghh.

– Trump ’16

I challenge you to a duel. In the past, you have come close to beating me because I was inexperienced. Now, I have studied your ways! I have uncovered the secret musical passions of the listeners. I know about Warm Leatherette and Einsterstuden Neubraten. Bear in mind that as your challenger, I will receive 100 bonus points going in. As in the past, I will keep the score, in the interest of keeping things fair. Listeners will be allowed to award points, but I will moderate to make sure points awarded are valid and/or deserved.
  Thu. 2/25/16 3:30pm greysquad:

Is it "vote" robot? or a robot that "votes"... you know, like the robots that have been programmed to vote for Trump?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 3:31pm Cliff:

Clay, you know about the Collapsing Newbuildings? Good for you!

Former Presidente of Mexico Vicente Fox just gave an interview in which he said someone should tell Trump no way Mexico is ever "paying for that fucking wall" he keeps talking about...

Is "Einsterstuden Neubraten" some kind of German sausage?

@Cliff-I am almost 50 and a newly minted Catholic. Very very very conservative red pill guy. I am VERY aware the shit could hit the fan like , later this year. Good luck in Europe I hope its better. Hillary will win anyway. The establishment will NOT let Trump be president. No way. He will shake things up too much for the corrupt bought for policiticans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 3:38pm Cliff:

Wild Neil: Trump actually has some reasonable positions compared to the other Republican buffoons, but his pandering xenophobia makes me ill

@Tony: It's what they serve incoming students at universities in Germany.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 3:39pm Cliff:

Hillary's platform is basically "it's my turn", if she ends up getting nominated then I won't bother to vote for any of the robots

OTOH, einsturzende sauerbraten is that gastric disturbance one acquires after consuming too much sausage and sauerkraut.

I can't consistently spell Einsturz.....whatever, so I just call them the Collapsing Newbuildings

Wild Neil: my Mom's side of the family is conservative Catholic, so I get where you're coming from.
  Thu. 2/25/16 3:42pm P-90:

Guys, if you add the votes all the other Republicans have receved in the primaries, even GOP voters are voting more than 2 to 1 against Trump. Then add the total number of votes in the Dem primaries, and you see an electorate that is already strongly opposed to Trump as a candidate. Perhaps even disgusted by the whole idea.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 3:46pm Carmichael:

Heya Fab and cohorts. It will be Hillary this year. I have already been there and saw it. Vice president Sanders, though, passes away of old age shortly after the election and is replaced by a vote robot, which nominates itself several times.

Might be voting expat this year.
It's a fantasy, anyway.
Avatar Thu. 2/25/16 3:47pm Wild Neil:

@P-90 Yeah that's one way of looking at it-Trump does not even have a simple majority, right? Well, he IS leading and nobody wants to drop out and lose out NOR (to a smaller motivation) want to give away their suppor to Trump. But hey a win is a win. We shall see. Our Oligarchical Robot Masters wish it to be ,so it shall...NPR pretends to be objective like all the media.
Avatar Thu. 2/25/16 3:48pm Wild Neil:

Robot masters want Hillary...that is...
Avatar Thu. 2/25/16 3:48pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Agreed, P-90 @3:46. Although my local NPR programming has become so wretched of late, I've weaned off it almost entirely.

@Fabio-cool show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 3:50pm Cliff:

Agreed, so sick of the media trying to brainwash us that Hillary's getting it no matter what, so there's no point in even thinking of an alternative

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 3:54pm Alejandroool:

NPR is similar to CBC here... watered down programming has become the norm - except CBC doesn't do any funding drives, they just kept getting government cuts to their funding
Avatar Thu. 2/25/16 3:56pm TDK60:

I looked it up: Norway.
Avatar Thu. 2/25/16 3:57pm Wild Neil:

NPR to me is like Radio Troika in Poland...an excellent source of music but totally communist, Would never give them a red cent but will listen....I DO donate to FMU though, as the music is so great and I don'nt give a crap about anybody's politics here...as there is no discrenable agenda anyway....

TDK@5:04 i'm confident that you can sympathise when i say i'm very slightly hopeful that tdk will get back into cassettes. i tried so many but nothing really even came close to the quality of a tdk sa or d.
i used mostly 90s & 100s. most of those hundreds still play/sound great.

Mike, yeah a split of S.O.O.A. & Tyler is a groovy thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 5:37pm coelacanth:

Carmichael, i've never done that. i have some tdk "m" from back in the day. they all sound muffled. maybe that would help?
Avatar Thu. 2/25/16 5:37pm Rich in Washington:

I agree on Maxell. They just didn't seem to have the longevity. It seemed like they would deteriorate really fast for their supposed quality.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 5:40pm Carmichael:

@coel: a convection oven set at a very low temp will re-stick the oxides long enough for you to transfer the sound intact to a different medium. It's not meant as a long-term solution. And don't use a regular oven ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 5:40pm coelacanth:

...but then, most of my "m"s are 110s. there're other ways for them to fail. they might not be worth the trouble.

That poster of the reluctant corporate yuppie getting his hair blown back by the Maxell sound probably sold a billion tapes by itself.

Music sticks so well to Metal tapes you couldn't erase & tape over them - learned the hard way...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 5:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...longer tape lengths meant thinner tape & worse quality? The tape equivalent of 45 v. 33+1/3...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 5:42pm coelacanth:

Thanks Carmichael. i have to ask around for a convection oven.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 5:45pm coelacanth:

N-Head -yeah! they had a great ad campaign.

I'm so glad I'm younger enough that I don't have to deal with baking my music in a convection oven
Avatar Thu. 2/25/16 5:46pm TDK60:

Deja vu? Did we have a similar Tape Talk here before? Or was that another show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 5:47pm coelacanth:

"ride of the valkyries" was the music in those ads that i recall.

No Fab, it's not just you.

I've been trying to figure out a way that we, as a population that despises Trump, could do to render him legally penniless. Any ideas?
  Thu. 2/25/16 5:52pm Dean:

C'mon. You want Trump elected so the House of Representatives can shout, "You're impeached!"
Avatar Thu. 2/25/16 5:52pm TDK60:

Coelacanth: Don't be sorry. I could talk tapes for months. But I gotta go finish this mix tape for a friend.

I saw that video.. Clay was AWESOME for Wild of the Wind.

I also befriended the bullies by the end. You realize it just doesn't matter once you get older and all smoke weed/drink.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/25/16 5:54pm Marcel M:

I would hint that I was gay and hit on the jocks/bullies which made them fear me a bit.

"Bully", "Bro", Big-mouth". Thats Trump in a nutshell. Fab just nailed it.

A nematode is a roundworm most known for infecting citrus trees - but the nematode problem seems quaint compared to "greening", caused by an evil psyllid.
