i know this has been happening to language since time immemorial, but it still saddens me to see a lovely word such as "gay" become twisted to mean only one thing now.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/28/17 9:29am Scraps:

annie, I'm sorry, but "twisted"? I mean, I don't know you, and I like you, but that means, to me, that means you think that means something bad, the people that use that word that way...

Delusions of Banjer
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/28/17 9:32am annie:

not at all bad. and i'm as free-thinking as the next guy, the connotations for "gay" now rarely include happy.. i'm jusr sad at the deterioration of our langauge
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/28/17 9:32am Scraps:

Unless you are thinking that the people who use it as an insult.... there are two common ways to use that word, of course

Doug, you probably mentioned this before, but what are you studying in grad school? Advanced DummerSomeology, I hope.
Avatar Fri. 4/28/17 9:39am Doug Schulkind:

Give the Drummer Some won't be moving very far, but from late-August to mid-December, it will be moving.

Trust me, I find this deeply upsetting and unsettling, but there is no way around it. Luckily, I have wonderful and generous friends to accommodate me.

oops, that "nooo" was for Doug not being able to do his Friday morning show from Aug. to Dec. I will miss it badly and try to remember it's just the fall and early winter. a really long fall and early winter. ;)
Avatar Fri. 4/28/17 9:42am Doug Schulkind:

@Maggie
I have literally wept over having to move my show for this period. But, the clouds parted and sun shone down on a pretty glorious solution.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/28/17 9:43am Scraps:

I guess, as a professional who uses words (copyeditor), it doesn't occur to me to feel sad -- that's words, historically, change.

But (if you don't know) the people who complain about gay falling out of use to mean happy, are usually people who, underneath their complaint, are complaing about gay to mean sexually. That's why i worded my question carefully-- because I didn't think you were a homophobe. But people could silently think to themselves, "she's one of us."

Sigh. Sorry. Too long an explanation
Avatar Fri. 4/28/17 9:44am Doug Schulkind:

Never stop explaining, Scraps! You have much to add to the human condition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/28/17 9:46am Stanley:

I'm away to make a cup of tea and I miss the news that the Friday morning show is on hold during the fall semester but moving to another slot thanks to a 'glorious solution'? I look forward to that as well as the Friday morning return (If I've got it right).
  Fri. 4/28/17 9:46am Artie Haywire:

Good morning, Drummers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/28/17 9:47am Uncle Michael:

Language evolves. Most of what's described as deterioration, isn't. Being resistant to change is human.

The hours I spent at Tower and the Tower Annex are just too many to fathom, many many days.

Nisht Azoy Gerfairlach would be the Yiddish response to the schedule change (not so bad...); actually quite fine (from my neck of the woods, nice/great that UM can pull it off).

My first love in New York was a social worker. Eventually she moved on, because social work didn't pay at all. She was bitter (kind of) that struggling actors got some kind of benefit from the city about housing but social workers didn't get squat.

Doug, you also have experience improving the lives of WFMU listeners, who don't seem to trend all that young

Has anyone seen the documentary Alive Inside about the social worker who brings music to dementia patients and accomplishes incredible things? That is what I would like to do. (Or, continue doing!)

I can imagine when folks get self-driving cars, they'll just have the car drop them off and then circle until they're ready to be picked up.

Not exactly green ...
  Fri. 4/28/17 11:53am Dean:

"Smear" is, literally, not Romantic. It's Germanic. First entry in OED is curious: "To anoint with oil, chrism, etc., as a symbolic ceremony. In later use only with contemptuous force."

I'm with Atrios when it comes to self-driving cars. They aren't gonna happen. Besides, you just know that after a half-generation or so of them, some wise guy will think, "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if we could navigate these things manually?!"
