Michigan peaches are a thing?

At the farmer’s market in Union Square yesterday it was just pea shoots this and pea shoots that.

"Withering," is what I get.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/14/17 12:26pm Uncle Michael:

I'm sorry, Brian but there is no peach that approaches a Palisades peach.
Avatar Thu. 9/14/17 12:29pm βrian:

UM: They're probably shipping them from Michigan and re-labelling them. But if it tastes good, that's all that matters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 12:30pm Meghan:

I live on a Palisade, but I don't see any peaches up there....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/14/17 12:32pm Uncle Michael:

You don't live in Palisades, Colorado, though.

Hi Meghan, so sorry that this is such a crazy time for you. We'll miss him too, even way out here in the cheap seats.

Cheap seats or not, his reach was far and wide. And always with open arms despite his gumpy exterior!

How's it down there Dave? A mess or ok?

Loving the uber-eighties guitar tone on this Sunflower Bean

Not too bad. Powers been restored, and they have some piles of sand on the beach that need to be smoothed out
  Thu. 9/14/17 12:41pm JakeGould:

I don’t know about cherries. Blueberries for me. All other small fruits suck.
Avatar Thu. 9/14/17 12:43pm βrian:

Michigan blueberries! Yes, I forgot. But they've got those in quite a few places. Even Wisconsin.

Strawberries only work in ham for me.
Cherries are fine with me in ice cream or soda.
Blueberries are just like grapes to me.

Still waiting to go home once I get electricity. There goes my vacation for the year (I only got Friday and Monday paid off officially so far).

oh no, really? Even though it was an emergency? Glad you are ok!

My sweetie once brought home two 5-gallon buckets of wild Maine blueberries. Heaven!

That Mingus cut was used in a VW ad some 15 years ago. www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:05pm Meghan:

oh i remember when all the car ads started using songs that I liked.... VW used Nick Drake, I think Nissan used Galaxie 500....

My boss has electricity. The HQ server died due to lack of A/C. Hoping to hear a better prognosis at my local office as that's one of my jobs.

It's only been five days, South Florida and Puerto Rico are so much worse off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:07pm Jeff Golick:

@Meghan: yeah. The Sonics showing up in a Range Rover ad was a low point for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:08pm Jeff Golick:

I have vague memories (c. late 1980s) of hearing Mission of Burma behind a Levi's ad, but think that one is just a dream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:08pm Meghan:

It was a moment for me that I realized advertising was trying to directly address me and my generation.... (or those that happened to listen to that music...)
Avatar    Thu. 9/14/17 1:12pm Sem Chumbo:

Wow, in the kitchen listening to this, and it sounded like James Brown on helium in the middle of a psychotic episode.
In a very good way.

i recall a Lincoln advert using a Mr Scruff song... and the Mr Scruff song sampled from Moondog...so Moondog was in a Lincoln advert!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/14/17 1:20pm Uncle Michael:

When it's Little River Band songs, I'm toast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:21pm Jeff Golick:

Nat Hentoff on that Mingus song, via the liner notes: "[T]he record [...] begins with a piece whose title is much less opaque than it first appears to be. If you read the roman numeral with which it begins as "to" and then add the common meaning of B.S., you arrive at Mingus's occasional exasperation at having to find titles for compositions after they've been created. 'Often,' he explains, 'when I'm sitting at the piano, developing a piece, it's difficult to put a label on the particular feeling I have going. All I can really put into words about this one is that it's meant to communicate a mood of elation. And it's strongly related to the Haitian Fight Song.'"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:23pm Meghan:

Yes! All of that Yes!!! Brilliant!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/14/17 1:24pm Guido from Cologne:

Hallo Meghan!
Wie geht's?
Schönes Radioprogramm machst Du da!
Avatar Thu. 9/14/17 1:24pm The Oscar:

I've mostly come to terms with songs I like being used in ads (mostly because, for songs I REALLY like, it's still pretty rare), but maybe six months ago there was a car ad that used "Search and Destroy," only they cut out the solo in the second bar and just looped the intro again, and it drove me fucking CRAZY. My girlfriend said it was like watching a dog react to a frequency you can't hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:25pm Jeff Golick:

Yup, @The Oscar. I did come to enjoy hearing "Lust for Life" in those cruise commercials, though.
Avatar Thu. 9/14/17 1:26pm The Oscar:

@Jeff An oldie but a goodie: www.theonion.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:27pm Meghan:

Danke Guido!!! Viel dank!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:27pm Parq:

The way I look at it, when a recording by an artist I dig gets used on a commercial, that means money for the artist I dig (and, if it's a different person, for the songwriter), and that's a good thing. Of course, the record companies often assert that the individual artists get only a teeny percentage, and that's a bad thing, but it's not caused by the use of the recording in a commercial.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:28pm Jeff Golick:

Yesterday's comedy as today's news. That's great, @The Oscar.

"Notably absent from the ad is any footage of a shirtless, bleeding Iggy Pop in skintight leopard-print pants," hahahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:30pm Parq:

"That's why 'Rocks Off' is perfect for Procter & Gamble's new line of children's shampoos." The Oscar is right -- that says it all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:33pm Jeff Golick:

Oh man. Is this set at the station already??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:34pm Meghan:

noooooo not yet. They've released a few songs on Bandcamp
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/14/17 1:38pm Uncle Michael:

I pre-ordered the Numero Group HD release.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:38pm Jeff Golick:

Aha. Nice.

I need me some wireless headphones.

Hey there Mauri!

I must remember to buy wireless headphones tomorrow.
Its pouring down here and im warming up the sauna.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 1:54pm JakeGould:

I’m kinda tired of hearing the hemming and hawing about artists “selling out” or not. At the end of the day—especially in music—many artistic careers are painfully short. Like 2-3 years of solid, great work followed by years of rehashing it until it’s past caricature.

If you are an artist and can get a pile of $$$ for your work, more power to you.

Also, there is such romantic nonsense about starving artists. If they are “starving” they are pure. If they finally get paid, they are “sell outs.” Even in the visual art world. People seem to love stories about keeping precious artists as their own personal, suffering servants. Bleagh! Just let them get paid. Enjoy the art, not the politics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/14/17 1:56pm maestroso:

This Godspeed is epic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/14/17 1:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Meghan. Please give Diane K. a hug or two on your way out. She's kind of down today, understandably.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 2:00pm Meghan:

I don't mind if an artist sells their work for advertising, but I do wonder if they were part of the conversation or did the label do it on their behalf. I do hate that a lot of those 70's pop soul songs make me think of Burger King.

But yes, all artists should make a living. If they are getting a wider reach and you (the general you) feel they have become uncool because your hidden group or artist has reached a wider audience, which may make you uncool, then come on..... It's really about people's attachment to artists and not about selling out. As the Dead Milkmen so famously say in Instant Klub Hit- I met Andy Warhol at a really chic party..... blow it out your hair dude cause you work at Hardees
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 2:00pm Meghan:

Oh Ken, Diane and I already had a good blather about it. Very emotional day here at the station
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 2:02pm Ike:

Thanks Meghan! As for emotions, yeah, me too.... :( :( :( :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 2:04pm coelacanth∅:

rest in peace Wm.
