What was Edward Bear’s follow-up to “Bearnings?” Why a few years later they just released this amazingly covered eponymous LP. img.discogs.com...

Yeah @efd, we're here for the funk as seen through your eyes. Always will be.

It would be great if a future Republican presidential candidate could just be called “Whitey.”

First Sharks LP is great too.

hey efd what's your phone number i want to prank call you so don't answer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/10/16 9:43pm efd:

this seems counterproductive.

@ChrisM: You drunk or is this insane humidity giving you some reverse-bends or something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/10/16 9:48pm JakeGould:

I guess I crossed a boundary with Chris. :/ Sorry!
Avatar    Wed. 8/10/16 9:51pm mariano:

Oh, I dunno, @JakeGould, just some harmless horsin' around. And I'm no stranger to posting here in various stages of inebriation, though that's sadly not the case tonight, got too much work!

Wow, Scott & Charlene's Wedding... so good
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/10/16 9:54pm efd:

yeah, I avoided that band for a long time because of their name. A foolish and capricious decision on my part, in hindsight.

Heya EFD, killing me!!!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:04pm chris_in_space:

@efd I do that all the time with bands and their name. Current case in point: Car Seat Headrest <shudder>. Probably not a bad band though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/10/16 10:06pm efd:

sorry/not sorry! :)

Avatar    Wed. 8/10/16 10:13pm mariano:

Was about to say, this sounds like the Canadian version of The Cars before I looked, don't know this album that well. Hey @coelacanth, feeling better I hope?
  Wed. 8/10/16 10:14pm Carmichael:

Best band name of the 80s/90s: The The.

Hey, nice to hear some Welsh! Sorry, I kinda dig it, Jake...

Celtic languages are great for singing, I think, especially Irish Gaelic.

I NEVER SAID I HATED IT! I JUST COME FROM AN EASTERN EUROPEAN FAMILY AND ARE VOWEL SENSITIVE.

No, not knocking you @JakeGould, to each his own!
  Wed. 8/10/16 10:24pm Carmichael:

I'm Irish, and I still laugh at the Welsh word spellings. Sorry, Wales people.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:24pm chris_in_space:

If I know @JakeGould–and I've seen him around these and other FMU parts for quite a while now, consistently–I'm calling "ironic" on those ALL-CAPS there.
Avatar    Wed. 8/10/16 10:27pm mariano:

Welsh does have that one sound, the way they pronounce "LL" which is kind of like a slurred "thl."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/10/16 10:32pm coelacanth:

i may (probably?) have some welsh in me, and i don't get it... but i do quite like to hear a woman singing in welsh.
Avatar    Wed. 8/10/16 10:35pm mariano:

There's a great old movie with Alec Guinness about two Welsh country boys who win tickets to go see a soccer match in London, and they get lost and have all kinds of misadventures. But there's this one scene where one of them wants a beer at a pub after last call, and the barkeep tells him it's the law, and he says scornfully "You and your Saxon laws!" Always made me chuckle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/10/16 10:37pm melinda:

good evening everyone
  Wed. 8/10/16 10:37pm Carmichael:

I found the Explorers Club on FMU many years ago. Excellent surf sound!

My favorite summer song is the Number One Song the day I was born: "Summer In The City" by The Lovin' Spoonful

YES! Two weeks from tonight, Aug 24th!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/10/16 10:53pm coelacanth:

i'm watching the olympics but keeping the inane, fratboy commentary at a minimum volume. the airhorn rose right above it.
