since we're on Taiwan, i'll note that a month or so ago I took this cookbook called The Food of Taiwan: Recipes from the Beautiful Island by Cathy Erway (thefoodoftaiwan.com) out from the library, and it was pretty cool. The pictures are fantastic.
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:16pm Gary:

That looks sweet, Hyde -- did you wind up making anything really great?

@Gary unfortunately no. i did the sad librrary cookbook thing where i skimmed the text, looked at the pretty pictures and then made none of the recipes. i need to get it again.

if peter really has TT playing cards, color me jealous too

I like the Never on Sunday soundtrack.
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:33pm hyde:

@melinda that movie is fantastic. I got to see Jules Dassin introduce a screening of it at Harvard Film Archive years ago, it was really cool to see him talk about it
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:34pm Gary:

Carmichael! And, ah, yes, Never on Sunday! Thanks
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:36pm ndbob:

@hyde@melinda yep - the soundtrack is great - I saw part of the movie but so long ago I can't really remember it
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:38pm Gary:

I know the song, but I've never seen the film ... I clearly need to fix that
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:44pm hyde:

@ndbob Dassin is great. Made some amazing postwar films in the USA (Thieve's Highway, Night and The City, Brute Force, The Naked City), got blacklisted and moved to Europe and made Rififi, Topkapi and Never On Sunday. (Also Phaedra, which is worth a look). He also made some anti- greek junta films in the 70's, which I've never seen but I think didn't make him very popular with the dictatorship there.
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:52pm ndbob:

@hyde I've seen Night and the City and The Naked City - Topkapi too I think
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:54pm hyde:

@ndb i love Topkapi, it's one of the great heist films. except it always reminds me that i went to Istanbul and didn't go to Topkapi, d'oh
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:55pm ndbob:

@Hyde I saw it with my parents when it came out - I remember really liking it
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 7:58pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary! - catch the rest on the archive

I heard the soundtrack long before seeing the film, film is good too.

awww, Other Music. I only know of their Cambridge incarnation, but i bought a lot of stuff there

I didn't know they were in Cambridge

@hyde: when was Other Music in Cambridge?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/22/16 8:35pm listener james from westwood:

The one that made me smile was Grexit for Greek exit. Sounded like a minor DC Comics villain, maybe a Justice League foe who got wiped out in Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Good point about BRICS, LJfW

Of course, post-Brexit might become a developing nation, economy wise, so who knows, may be room for one more B in BRICS.

There you go. And if Scotland successfully bails next time, they could go with EBRICS. Then it's just a matter of getting Words With Friends to officially accept it, to soak up some of those pesky E's.
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 8:55pm hyde:

@melinda sorry, i wandered off their for a bit. Other Music was in Cambridge in the late 90's, i imagine it opened somewhere between 1997-1998? It was in the building at 57 JFK, that had the movie theater earlier and the Swatch store later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/22/16 9:04pm melinda:

Thanks hyde. That was before my time. I live in Maine and the last time a visited Boston I found a record store in Cambridge I was hoping to return to but that wasn't it, I was there in 2008.
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 9:10pm hyde:

@melinda hmmm, there was also Twisted Village, which was just a couple blocks away from Other Music, at 12 Eliot Street and was great. (these exact addresses are the result of the fact that i was a mailman in Cambridge for a bunch of years!) That place closed circa 2010 or so...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/22/16 9:12pm melinda:

I don't know most of the street names, but this was in a basement space.

Doug! Oh, man -- happy soon-to-be-a-vacation to you!

@melinda Twisted Village was a basement space. So also is In Your Ear at 72 Mt Auburn, which is actually still there (though i always thought their Boston store was better) : iye.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/22/16 9:16pm melinda:

In Your Ear, that's it! I like that you remember the addresses.
Avatar Wed. 6/22/16 9:18pm hyde:

@melinda haha, like i said, i was a mailman. that stuff sticks when you deliver day after day to these places ;)

Hi everyone, thank you for these. I would say, the thing missing in this playlist, without mentioning more experimental music because I know it is very hard to find, is actual popular music from the 80's and 90's, the music that was also popular in mainland China. Everything is on youtube now, but it can get difficult to keep tracks of it : who is taiwanese and who is not ? where can i find the whole album (chinese don't use the same websites as us when it comes to finding music) ? Is it the real MV or a karaoke-made one ?
In the youtube comments, you can see chinese people having fond memories of the popular music from this era, and especially when listening to taiwanese music, which is seen as more professional and "artistic" (ie. less dumb) than the mainland productions.
I myself wanted to dive into this but it's very time-consuming. I have to say, i really like songs by someone like Bobby Chen 陳昇 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwL3l6rcUJ0 this was the first song I heard on my first trip in China (ive never been to taiwan), little I know I would fall in love with the country and that song was one of the reasons, it's so nostalgiy-packed... check this one too, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7f6305MkDsI

i advise searching "台湾老歌" on youtube to find many playlists
  Mon. 10/23/17 3:00am A.C.:

I'd recommend checking out the LTK Commune music video, easily findable on youtube. Quite entertaining! In response to an earlier comment, in the 90s Faye Wong (王菲) and Wubai (五百) were both very popular "alternative rock" style singers. I'm sure there were others. The picture at the top of the page is an album cover for a band called Wonfu (旺福), a fantastic pop band who have been around for quite some time now. Sadly none of their songs are on this playlist! Check out one of their songs here, if you'd like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLAykllCuXU While there are certainly other artists that could be added to this list, it's a fine introduction to a place with a rich and distinct music culture! Thank you for putting on such a fantastic show!
