I get unreasonably excited whenever lost silent movies are uncovered and shown. Still holding out hope for London After Midnight.

You can read a little more about Marion Davies in the excellent if possibly fictitious in places memoir "BRING ON THE GIRLS!" by P.G. Wodehouse on his theatrical life with partner Guy Bolton.

I LOVE me some STYX. They really rock. Un-ironically. Also the Knack. And The Cars Candy-O. Its like the stuff that Clay plays which is awesome power pop.
I also like 75 dollar bill, Horse Lords and Dirty Beaches. And Merl Haggard. Its the Redneck in me I'm sure.

Heya Joe and Monday people. Lots of Ms. Sadier and Tremeloes this past weekend.

@Jeremy - Drumpf entering thru our windows, like zombies impolitely do. and George Romero died, and Film Forum is showing his "night of the living dead" in oct (i think). it's all connected.

The Marion Davies reputation comes mainly from Citizen Kane. Welles himself says he went too far in his portrayal of her.

Some helpful notes for you about the songs: "Luces blancas" is about when cars pass each other and there are headlights and also traffic lights reflecting on each other; "El Mar" is about the sea; "Tricotosa" is a type of toy sewing machine popular with a generation of kids in Spain.

Saw him Saturday at a tiny show in Philly. Was feeling sad and it cheered me up immensely. Was suprised to hear it again this morning, a very pleasant suprise and nice reminder to stay in a good place. Thank-you!
Avatar    Mon. 7/24/17 11:26am Joe McG:

@wendyfaye: So glad you caught him! For local folks, he'll be back in the area this coming Saturday playing Troost in Brooklyn.

Good morning! Good job! You are a true Armenian hero WFMU DJ!
I have a request... play some Univore! Or just... check out Univore at your leisure! Really just trying to spread awareness of my pals Univore!.... ... .... Univore! www.youtube.com... if you're not familiar, their most popular video is "champagne taste" but there are a bunch of other good ones... basically everything they do is good but I particularly like Angela, Scorpions & Brazil, Ghost of Me, Vendetta, I've been trying to run into you, and Indulgences.

This is LOVELY! I'd go se him it he's around the NY/NJ area. Brooklyn, huh?

Avatar    Mon. 7/24/17 11:29am Joe McG:

More notes: "Aina" is apparently referencing a Spanish hardcore band of the '90s! Apparently Isasa used to be in the hardcore scene back then. @OwnCrab: Will check them out, thanks! @drjazz: Yes, a very nice intimate spot in Brooklyn next Saturday. I'll announce the other dates, too, in case some of you are listening in North Carolina or Maryland. He's in Durham tonight, Asheville on Tuesday, Chapel Hill on Thursday, Baltimore on Friday, and Brooklyn is the tour end on Saturday.

I though math rock was an after school special.

@Itzall@10:28, agreed! But then I'd also take being vomited on by a rhino over Don Felder. (But preferably, a rhino vomiting *on* Don Felder. While eagles peck him for slandering their good bird name.)

Hiya, Joe. A Defcon 4 deadline came out of nowhere and all about are losing control of major muscle groups. Been listening right along, trying to keep my wits about me. Thanks for the spins. Now to get out of this Hazmat suit and into a cool tumbler of rocket fuel. Later.
