An underground journey through the history of psychedelic rock, modern music, shimmering noise, free jazz, punk, funk, children's records played at the wrong speed, tape cut-up, static, the composition of decomposition, and subversive spoken word.

Can we rewind the last 14 months and try again?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:07pm cklequ:

It was either this or the 'all are welcome' Christmas eve service at the Presbyterian church a few blocks away. Pretty sure i made the right choice.

A lift from the 1st flying saucer off of this rock (as long as they're not Vogons).

@Jherweg: I want a valid explanation for why that four breasted manatee thing that Luke casually milked was in “The Last Jedi.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:30pm cklequ:

I'd settle for a good broccoli calzone.

@JakeGould: I'd like to know how they talked Mark Hamill into actually filming that scene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:36pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Santa, I want a rocket ship.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:38pm JakeGould:

@NumberSix: Why? It’s not like that guy has a career outside of this stuff. He’s getting paid.
Avatar Sun. 12/24/17 5:40pm Number Six:

Actually, he does a ton of voice acting for animation (best Joker ever) & video games.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:41pm JakeGould:

@NumberSix: I was actually going to write “Please don’t mention that ‘Joker’ voice work he did because nobody cares…” Of all of the actors to come out of the original “Star Wars” he was/is the worst. And for an actor, a film career means more than voices in video games or an animated film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:42pm JakeGould:

It would have been great though if he milked that thing, looked at Rey’s face in disgust and then stared at the ground and simply said, “My life!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:44pm JakeGould:

Also, I hope that Finn learns how to kiss by the time the next film comes out. I’m Little Rascals shorts with more passionate kissing.

Avatar Sun. 12/24/17 5:46pm Number Six:

You're being too hard on him. I've met him and he's actually pretty cool. I don't think he gives a shit about being an actor. He's more interested in his family than Hollywood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:46pm JakeGould:

@AdamPysche: Ha! www.instagram.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:49pm JakeGould:

@NumberSix: Well… 20+ years ago I worked for a dot-com and Mark Hamill had some weird cable show and he wanted to profile us. We were excited, said yes and then his people came back to us and said we could be featured if we paid their production company $500 or $600… So we said no since that was slimy and sad.

You know that episode of the Simpsons where Mark Hamill shows up at a science fiction convention? Pretty accurate. I liked Star Wars but I don’t hero worship.

Also… That 4 breasted thing he milked.
  Sun. 12/24/17 5:51pm sufferwords:

Frisky on the air- i was there for this- that scene was a mess - we survived
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:52pm cklequ:

Am I the only one in the room who never made it past the fourth Star Wars movie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:54pm JakeGould:

@cklequ: You mean the first one from 1977 or the 4th movie that was the prequel from 1997?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 5:56pm cklequ:

I mean chronologically.
Avatar Sun. 12/24/17 5:58pm Number Six:

@JakeGould: What can I say, everybody has different experiences with people. Going to sci-fi cons is my job and I get to meet a lot of these actors. Some are cool, some are dicks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:09pm adampsyche:

I just shoved a half pound of fondue and steak in my face do I haaave to eat these vegetables?
Avatar Sun. 12/24/17 6:13pm Number Six:

Yes! And you must wash them down with freshly squeezed green milk!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:15pm JakeGould:

And then turn to one nearest you you love, close your lips tightly and just push your heads together as if a kiss were a barely competent headbutting attempt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:17pm adampsyche:

hahaha you gotta admit that juice was a good callback to episode 4 and that nasty shake that aunt Beru (sp) was serving when Luke was all whiny
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:19pm cklequ:

I have a feeling that jokes are going over my head right now.
Much like an aeroplane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:23pm adampsyche:

wait I want a calzone now thanks @cklequ
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:24pm cklequ:

It's tough to find a decent calzone at 6:30 pm on Christmas Eve.
  Sun. 12/24/17 6:33pm Tommy in Neversink:

I'm like you. I don't do anything for x mas....I don't buy gifts and I don't want people buying me things I don't want and I just like walking around the city...like you
  Sun. 12/24/17 6:33pm Tommy in Neversink:

I like the music
  Sun. 12/24/17 6:38pm rw:

Hey man, good to hear the Blur on Xmas eve! Thanks for filling in! Enjoying the calmness. It’s keeping me from screaming right now! Hey everyone!
Avatar Sun. 12/24/17 6:38pm Number Six:

If you really wanted to freak your rens, just ask them how come Santa also spells Satan.
  Sun. 12/24/17 6:40pm rw:

Okay, I’ve been doing a little screaming, but nothing too serious yet.
  Sun. 12/24/17 6:41pm hmmm:

This sounds like a rip-off of Orange Juice ripping off Velvet Underground ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:42pm Jherweg:

Glad to hear you' all are surviving !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:42pm Jherweg:

I came from a secular family so they wouldnt have cared
  Sun. 12/24/17 6:42pm hmmm:

What I want for Xmas is to hang out with my kids for a few days, which is happening so I’m good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 6:58pm Jherweg:

Good glad to hear it RW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 7:00pm JakeGould:

The soul-crushingness of the holiday season has passed for me because I am secular, and Jewish… But the buildup to Christmas this year has been fine since I didn’t have deal with patronizing folks who would ask me if I at least have a “Christmas tree” because even if I am Jewish, it’s still an American thing.

Yup, I’ve had that horsecrap shoved down my throat for decades. Even worse when I was kid since I came from an immigrant family and every schmuck—even kids—hears that and decides they will passive aggressively tell you how to be a “real” American.

I guess nowadays most people don’t feel like telling people how they should properly behave.

Anyway, happy you are filling in!

Jonathan, your musical choices for tonight are greatly appreciated. One, because I seriously dig this kind of stuff. And two, because it's such a relief from all of the Happy,Happy, Joy, Joy crap that's forced into your head everywhere you go this time of year.
  Sun. 12/24/17 7:13pm mary:

Love this show.
Was just talking about Gallo before you mentioned him. Prob hearing Fusciante...
Buffalo 66 - a first feature as beautiful as Polanski's Knife in the Water. And other cinephiliac vibrations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 12/24/17 7:19pm Jherweg:

Thanks Mary, I was hoping this show wouldn't be so full of bummer music that it pushed people over the edge. I meant it to have the opposite effect.
  Sun. 12/24/17 7:28pm rw:

It’s having the desired effect here.
