This music is really lovely.
  Fri. 9/1/17 9:54pm JakeGould:

@Mayuko: It’s a multiplex. Nothing that amazing. But they are still locally owned and have some nice deep discount days. The marquee is nice because they put up happy birthday messages all the time.

Hallo, Uncle M! Welcome onboard!
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 9:58pm Mayuko:

@Jake It seems like there are many small local businesses thriving around here, hope that industry city thing won't crush em and can co-exist.

what is this lovely talkover music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 10:05pm JayD:

Always enjoy your show, Daniel. Perfect soundtrack to working at home on a Friday night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 10:12pm JakeGould:

@Mayuko: True. As someone who grew up in Brooklyn and such, I believe that Sunset Park can’t really be gentrified in the core areas. Like the industrial areas? Maybe. But so far many attempts have failed.

My big theory is Sunset Park past the 60s—like towards Bay Ridge to the movie theater actually—might be where things gentrify since it’s honestly so dumpy and cheap… That’s why I live here! Also, deeper on the N train line too.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 10:13pm Daniel Blumin:

steve, it's a new cd from Justin Walter called Unseen Forces!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 10:13pm JakeGould:

And when I say dumpy I will just say for this board’s sake I have seen things that truly bring me back to NYC in the 1970s as a kid… Except no packs of wold stray dogs. Maybe in Sunset Park? Poor neighborhoods in NYC in the 1970s still had packs of wild stray dogs.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 10:15pm Daniel Blumin:

That sounds lovely, justoffthebeach!!! Good to have ya here! Thank you kindly, JayD!!!

@Jake I sincerely hope there's no packs of stray dogs around here, I have to walk out onto the streets to head home soon!
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 10:27pm Daniel Blumin:

Hallo, matt in ridgewood! Jeff-m! Faye, thank you, you world traveller, you! How long will you be away from our shores????
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 10:29pm JakeGould:

@Mayuko: I genuinely don’t think there are packs of stray dogs there anymore. But I will say there is a pretty amazing bunch of feral cats outside of a food service facility on 52nd Street near 1st Avenue in Sunset Park.

In general there are some disturbingly large colonies of feral cats in the dumpy parts this part of Brooklyn. So may that be the worst if the animal encounters you deal with there.

Sir Daniel- Great to see you earlier and now to hear you back in the nest. Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 10:34pm JakeGould:

@Mayuko: The last really wild dog packs I heard of were in Red Hook like 10 years ago. Good article on them and the great woman who cared for some of them. www.star-revue.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 10:40pm JakeGould:

And yes, my “on task” self approves of this “Three Voices for Joan La Barbara” track.
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 10:43pm Mayuko:

@Jake Thanks for the link! Will read it when I get home - time to head out fight my way through the cats (I did see a bunch of them...)

Will try listen the rest on mobile!

She was also known for her portrayal of Mrs. Baylock, the demonic nanny in the 1976 horror film The Omen. So there ya go...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 10:54pm JakeGould:

@Fuzzy: The nanny who said, “Look at me, Damien. It's all for you!” and then hung herself?

Damn, then some Satie. Heavy duty hour for sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/1/17 10:57pm steve:

that Beckett was great i may have to relisten
Avatar Fri. 9/1/17 10:59pm Fuzzy:

@Jake: no:
"Mysterious events plague the Thorns: large black dogs congregate near the Thorn home; Damien's nanny publicly hangs herself at his fifth birthday party; a new nanny, Mrs. Baylock (Billie Whitelaw), arrives unannounced to replace her; the five-year old Damien violently resists entering a church; and zoo animals are terrified of Damien."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/1/17 11:00pm JakeGould:

Samuel Beckett took Andre the Giant to school in his truck when he was 12. He was too big for the schoolbus so Beckett volunteered to take him to school each day:

“…Rousimoff’s son was André the Giant, and when Beckett found out that Rousimoff was having trouble getting his son to school, Beckett offered to drive André to school in his truck — a vehicle that could fit André — to repay Rousimoff for helping to build Beckett’s cottage.”
