"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Loyal to Mark R and Circle Time - he has been very kind to me - but Radio Roller Derby is a good show, too.

I don't sell red pills...i give em out for free... we b talkin bout esoteric thought here DEA
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/26/18 10:32am karlward:

So I ran into Philip Glass on the street one time, probably in 2006, probably on 2nd Ave. He was staring at his phone (this was pre-smartphone, so it was just a Nokia or something) and looking really confused by it. He looked up at me and I thought: you know what would be funny? What if I heckled Philip Glass with "DA NA NA! DA NA NA! DA! DA! DA!" over and over again, like some kind of absurd and aggressive Philip Glass ringtone. But I really like Philip Glass, and he's a good friend of my good friend's parents, so I didn't do it. But somewhere else in the multiverse, this happened, and that version of me is chuckling about this and doesn't even feel that bad over it.

So... this isn't Joe Strummer? I thought for sure that it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/26/18 10:48am Wild Neil:

PEACE All. Wow, there are some really off the wall comments here. You know, sometimes I think cashews are ALMOST worth the price. They are way more evolved than crappy peanuts. TC magic is pretty cool, clicky star!
This new track sounds kinda like B-52s with its jangly guitars.....wonder who it is?! Kinda Devo too...
