I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Bad ice cream puns aside, that story is wild. I see our friend to the left has declared his fealty to Mister Softee.

I remember playing a Playstation game called Twisted Metal 2 that featured a killer clown named Sweettooth driving a ice cream truck loaded Death Race style with weapons. I recall it any time I see a truck to this day.

Guys, stop making me laugh. This is a serious matter!!!

I don't think there are many (any?) ice cream truck over here. With Ramadan, not sure it would work in my neighborhood these days

"Etre assis ou danser" translates to "sitting or dancing"
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 12:14pm Mayuko:

You can eat ice cream sitting or dancing.
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 12:16pm Mayuko:

There was one ice cream truck jingle I used to hear often in Tokyo, that always say "if you don't hurry, you'll miss me!" to make the neighbor children anxious. Not cool strategy!

Hi, all. The official National Ice Cream Day isn't until July 16, but I'll have a scoop today anyway. www.timeanddate.com...
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 12:24pm fred:

I guess you're still not allowed to bring ice cream into the studio, so someone with an ice cream truck should consider stopping by Montgomery St around 2pm
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 12:27pm Mayuko:

Hi Ken! Yes that important date is still far ahead. It was National Donut Day yesterday though, and I celebrate it HARD.

Heading out on dog walk, pass the Little League games, there's always an ice truck there, now I'm tempted...

@fred YES!!! But I wonder who OWNS Jersey city area. I don't take the side of Master Softee aka New York Ice Cream! >:(
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 12:31pm Mayuko:

doctorjazz! Be careful, that truck could be Master Softee, the fake Mister Softee, trying to trap you!!
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 12:33pm fred:

Don't worry, it looks like Master Softee was a Manhattan thing
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 12:39pm Mayuko:

I feel like I got trapped in Brooklyn before myself though >:( This turf war has been taking place for years apparently, and insidious for innocent good citizens.

Don't see them as ice cream truck tunes. See them as numbers station tones for networks of young sleeper agents.

This Disastrous Consequences track was quite nice

Hey Fred... I'd like to come back this month at least a few times because my wife and baby are in Beijing (I'm joining them in July). I was hoping to temporarily go back to my old slot, but it's being taken over in a few weeks.

I now somewhat ironically miss the Mister Softee jingle now that I don't hear it EVERY WAKING HOUR!

Useless stock trivia: Not uncommon for Microsoft to be called Mister Softee by traders, some of whom in the roaring 90s may have nicked out of their day-trading office for a vanilla cone or two during periods of weak volatility.

I stand by my full-calendar ice cream position!
     Sat. 6/3/17 1:04pm mdashkin:

Hi Mayuko & All-

I just saw this in the New York Times and couldn't resist passing it along:

‘Pop Goes the Weasel’ at Carnegie Hall
"On Wednesday, as patrons were heading into Carnegie Hall for the Met Orchestra’s Mahler program, a big ice cream truck pulled up on 57th Street and parked right near the entrance to the hall. The vendor switched on the truck’s prerecorded jingle: a tinkling, out-of-tune, rhythmically jittery version of “Pop Goes the Weasel.” Not what you want to hear before the “Titan” Symphony."

Looks like ce cream trucks muscling-in on the classical music industry now!
Avatar Sat. 6/3/17 1:04pm northguineahills:

Even in NYC, I ate ice cream all year (and I'm lactose intolerant). I remember visiting my grandparents in WV for Xmas as a kid and being disappointed and confused that the Dairy Cream was closed for the winter. The one in my neighborhood down south was open all year.
Avatar Sat. 6/3/17 1:05pm northguineahills:

I prefer 3rd Bass's "Pop goes the Weasel".
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:07pm listener james from westwood:

Ya boosted the Softee, then ya looped it, ya looped it!
  Sat. 6/3/17 1:09pm Paul b:

A few months ago I was trying to make a list of some quintessential elements of high summer - the smell of ice cream drippings on a hot sidewalk an hour after the truck has passed was one. Seems gross but one of the things that means summer to me. I was going to take that list and try to gin up some sort of rambling W.G. Sebald type essay with them. Still on the "to-do" list

Hello, Rickwaukee, rw, and northguineahills!

They'll use your cut-off fingers as ice cream toppings, too!!!!!

@Jason - Good luck on your mission in China. Whatever time and place you can do some shows, that'd be great.

Jason! I heard Doug saying yesterday that we'll have a new show on the drummer stream too but don't know who that is yet. Maybe you can come back filling in?!?!
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:16pm fred:

I really like this Sujo track

I heard Doug say it was a comeback; I was really hoping it would be Jason
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:18pm listener james from westwood:

Aside from the soft-serve, what did folks usually get from ice cream trucks as kids or older-than-kids? I tended to go for snow cones or those ice cream popsicles with the white and pink crumbled-up things.
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:18pm listener james from westwood:

Mmmmm ... crumbled-up cookie things....
  Sat. 6/3/17 1:19pm Rickwaukee:

I was just about to suggest this Cibo Matto.
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:22pm Mayuko:

@mdashkin Them ice cream trucks sure are aggressive!!!
I heard the ‘Pop Goes the Weasel’ truck for the first time in Sunset Park the other day, maybe their turf is not much in Queens. I should check who which mafia group that was next time I hear em.
  Sat. 6/3/17 1:26pm Dean:

Still love that DJ Cummerbund mash-up "XXMilk" about milkshakes.

@james: that would be grand!

New show? Kenzo? Rumors? I love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/3/17 1:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember Liz Berg would play ice cream truck chimes for her bed music. Probably when she airs her first show of the summer.
Avatar Sat. 6/3/17 1:28pm Jason Elbogen:

hey Mayuko--yep I told him I would fill in... But I'm still teaching Monday-Thursday Morning and Nights, so I don't have much flexibility. I was hoping to get a temporary regular slot in June--because I have a bunch of stuff I want to play--but I guess it's too complicated.
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:30pm Mayuko:

@Jason Be my company on Saturdays!!!
Avatar Sat. 6/3/17 1:31pm northguineahills:

Well, in two weeks I finally have a face-to-face interview for hydrology/soil science environmental firm. I only applied for it in February and have had 3 phone interviews. It's actually a job I'd want to do in a place (Gainesville, FL) w/ low cost of living, a music/art scene, plenty of good restaurants, and I can actually bike to work if I so choose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/3/17 1:32pm David D:

Good luck, ngh! Being able to bike would be a big plus for me as well.

Good luck NGH. Biking to work would be great (not possible in my situation, alas...)
Avatar Sat. 6/3/17 1:34pm northguineahills:

Everywhere else in Florida would require a 30-45 minute drive just to get anywhere.

Hey, doctorjazz, Brain box arrived yesterday! Told my friends, who reported that there is a multi-disk Jane box in the works and a 15-disk(!!!) Novalis box.

@NGH: Nice to hear! I hope you get that job
Avatar Sat. 6/3/17 1:35pm northguineahills:

Thanks!
  Sat. 6/3/17 1:35pm Dean:

Also, if I'd thought of it, I'd have bought the Brain box from amazon.de (although I don't like buying from Amazon). Price there is w-a-y down.

Butter Pecan. I'm just sayin'.
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:42pm Mayuko:

@Paul B I don't think that's gross. That's like a scene a little sad but happy mixed feeling which is exactly what summer feels like!

Error M-a-ssage?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/3/17 1:43pm tmoyo:

today's comment's board looks weirdly 3D. The white letters pop up and the black ones stay in the ground.

I remembered reading Rudy Rucker's sci-fi book "Software," which has a sinister Mister Softee truck run by some kind of artificial inteligent gang that kidnaps people and takes their software from the hardware brain. I don't remember the story so well but the human bodies are discarded, but their mind is sucked into the AI pool or something like that.
Avatar Sat. 6/3/17 1:43pm northguineahills:

Damn it Dean, beat me to it!
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:44pm fred:

Jason, you should seize Mayuko's offer. She could do a third hour but almost never does. You could "fill-in" for that time while she's eating ice cream downstairs
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:44pm Mayuko:

Good luck with the interview, northguineahills! May all the ice cream be with you! (not the trucks!)
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:45pm Mayuko:

"Brain box delivered from amazon" sounds somewhat spooky.

Read part of Jason's posted article (hard to read while you dog walk), read other stuff of a similar vein. We're all hopelessly addicted, sugar is in almost everything. Went on a "detox diet" 2 summers ago, made it through, but wound up back in my regular "poisons" little by little (caffeine was the last back... Recently, though there are articles on the health benefits of caffeine and chocolate)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/3/17 1:46pm David D:

That's great, Doug! How many people do you think were there?
Avatar    Sat. 6/3/17 1:46pm Mayuko:

DOUG!!! We can't wait for the mystery around this new/old show to be resolved!!
  Sat. 6/3/17 1:49pm Dean:

Health benefits to beer. That's the article I'm waiting for.
Avatar Sat. 6/3/17 1:50pm Jason Elbogen:

Doug--would it be possible for me to follow Mayuko to do a three-hour slot for the next few Saturdays?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 6/3/17 1:52pm doctorjazz:

Definitely health benefits to get wine and beer have been documented, enjoy (moderation is key, of course).
I did get my Brain Box from Amazon, haven't opened it yet...

Pittsburgh mayor is very cool, Doug... Waiting for some local stuff to happen here...
