Hiya, Fabio, Agent Peter. You look a lot like Agent Orange. Family thing?

Excellent idea Brendan, nobody will suspect anything if we're cruising around in a 70s sedan. Even better if we use a wood-panelled station wagon

Ooohhh, meeting made me miss Mr. Giant Man... It's the highlight of my pathetic week.
  Thu. 2/16/17 3:19pm Brendan:

Alright i safely made the transition from the Imaginary Radio chat portal to this dimension. I feel like I may have been unconscious though. Plus my hiney hurts. I suspect an alien probe. Where's my wallet? Damnit all.
Avatar Thu. 2/16/17 3:24pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Just got here. Has everyone inhaled all the infinite sadness already?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/16/17 3:25pm Michael 98145:

... just a whiff
  Thu. 2/16/17 3:28pm Brendan:

I tried sadness once but was afraid to inhale.
Avatar Thu. 2/16/17 3:30pm Clïff in Prägůe:

Brendan - Any mysterious cuts or bruises that you have no memory of how they happened? That's a pretty systematic sign of unusual activitvy
Avatar Thu. 2/16/17 3:30pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I get sadness as a tincture, usually. It's a bit strong, but worth it.
Avatar Thu. 2/16/17 3:32pm Sem Chumbo:

@Cliff: it's also a sign of 0.08 and beyond.
Avatar Thu. 2/16/17 3:33pm Clïff in Prägůe:

Well, I mean, other than hiney aches, that's an even bigger clue

@Cliff No, everything else seems to order in be .

The funny U is "mu" the symbol for micro, or a millionth
  Thu. 2/16/17 3:39pm Dean:

Ironic, "mu"! It's a letter in the Greek alphabet, not to mention part of the station's call letters.
  Thu. 2/16/17 3:39pm Brendan:

A value less than 40

  Thu. 2/16/17 3:40pm ?:

Are we talking about the greek letter Mu or µ ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mu_%28letter%29. Short for microgram, for example 250µg LSD
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/16/17 3:40pm Michael 98145:

μm = micro meters

βrian - $20 of sushi in Prague is more than enough...on the other hand Czech is a land-locked country so don't expect super-high-quality
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/16/17 4:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

love harlan county usa. its about appalachian coal miners like my family (although my family is from wv not kentucky). another good study in appalachian coal mining labor history is matewan, a drama starring chris cooper, james earl jones and a teenage bonnie prince billy.

But at least the fish is fresh at the place I got to. The sushi rice is pretty muishy tjhoubgh

i remember a few years ago i was at Other Music and this old guy walks up to the cashier with a piece of paper and goes "I was just at St Marks Books and heard the most fascinating music and the salesperson wrote down what it is for me..." and he reads the paper... "it was 'Kraftwerk'?"

@mike@5:04 uh-oh it'll be Toto, Kansas, Paul Anka, Barry Maniwol, Journey, def leopard, mc hammer, and EMF every morning. isn't the shtick of so-bad-is-good hipster irony out of style? or will ken police clay every morning with an enforced playlist, that's lots of work. ?

Pistols finally got 'Bollocks' out early Nov. '77. Took a long time. 'Two sevens clash' was the Rastafarian prophecy, no?
