Staples hard on the stomach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 9:58pm coelacanth:

yes,Cliff. i ate "soy chorizo". it's only good with salsa or chutney or ?
a little disappointing, considering that i hooked it up with sauteed onion,turmeric,ginger,parsley,cilantro & garlic. the same preparation would've been great with chick peas.
oh well, now i'm eating dark chocolate and drinking red wine, which is all delicious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/26/16 9:58pm Uncle Michael:

The "Little Fugitive" soundtrack, in particular...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 9:59pm coelacanth:

ha! melinda, that was a reference to the musical segué!

Ah, soy products, always hit-or-miss with me too. Glad you're enjoying the dark chocolate and wine though!

What happens if I hold up a touch-tone phone receiver while this is playing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:17pm Cliff:

(Does anyone still have one of those?!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:18pm coelacanth:

"i'm obviously not answering my phone so you can leave a message so i know who called, or you can go fuck yourself."

...this was what i put on my answering machine once when i was pissed at the world. unfortunately my mother, who i only spoke with about 3X/year at the time, called the next day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/26/16 10:22pm melinda:

I have 2 touch-tone phones. As well as a vintage Swedish 1-piece rotary phone that doesn't work too well but looks cool.

Hey Daniel, cool stuff.

...Krell Labs by definition of course always a bit unpredictable - but I have to admit I'm enjoying it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:32pm coelacanth:

those old phones were made well. most of the really old ones made of bake-a-lite would work fine still if people hadn't discarded them for the cheap crap that took over in the 70s, when the monopoly was abolished. they also sounded beautiful.
that's a rare case of a monopoly i'd get behind. it sucked when that happened. quality of equipment and service plummeted and prices skyrocketed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:34pm Cliff:

And now we're into the structural demolition part of the show

Nice tree and wind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:45pm Marcel M:

I tried to reference what a band sounded like by mentioning Black Sabbath earlier tonight. To a kid who was probably around 13. He had no idea what I was talking about. I guess that makes sense but I was taken aback.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:47pm coelacanth:

there's an exceptional wind chime on the property that i'm on right now. it wasn't until i started to record it one night, a few years ago -with the crickets and owls in the background, the ubiquity of air plane sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:48pm Cliff:

Well I horribly embarrassed my parents when I was 12 and we were visiting my aunt in North Carolina and she was wearing a tie-dye Dead shirt, and I was like, "The GRATEFUL DEAD? Whozzat?!" I couldn't even comprehend that a band would want to be publicly known with a moniker like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:50pm Cliff:

The phone AGAIN?! Jeeeez, can't somebody pick up
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/26/16 10:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Just realized today would've been the 84th birthday of Johnny Cash. He's trying to call us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:52pm Marcel M:

@Cliff: Its funny you put it that way. Because, "Black Sabbath," simply makes me think of the band without thinking of the actual phrase because I'm so used to associating it that way. And when I said the name to the kid he gave me this look like, "what the fuck? What is a black sabbath, you weirdo?" Which makes sense for a kid who has never heard the name. Funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:52pm Cliff:

Spooky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:53pm Cliff:

Exactly what my 12-year-old brain was trying to process. Who on earth would be grateful to be dead, and why would they brag about it?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/26/16 10:53pm Marcel M:

haha.

...and if i'm to acknowledge Mr. Cash's birthday (Thanks to Ken) then i should also George Harrison's, which was yesterday but i barely had time to feel yesterday...George who had more influence on my zygote than almost anyone else in this world.
