I don’t remember this one — racy!

Wow, I forgot what great rhymes "Masochism Tango" has.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 4:19pm David D:

He had rhymes that never existed.

It's bit damp here, got 14.5"s/368mm of rain in 24 hours, but only in my town, (most other places only got 3-5"s/76-127mm of rain).

Huh. I always thought that was "Vatican 11."

Morgan Freeman was on the Electric Company.

Hi David! I've been undergoing oral surgery today, but I'll catch up because... Tom Lehrer is my spirit animal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 4:39pm northguineahills:

The Electric Company, not to be confused w/ Brad Laner's (also in the band Medicine) noisey electronic group.

I pretty much only watch The Electric Company in syndication (not sure if I remember the first two years when it was still current).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 4:39pm northguineahills:

(The first two years of my life).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 4:40pm northguineahills:

Actually year, it only went to '77.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 4:41pm Webhamster Henry:

If you want to get him mad at you, you can play Georg Kreisler's rip-off of "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" "Taubenvergiften im Park"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 4:41pm βrian:

Lovely clatter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 4:41pm Webhamster Henry:

him = Prof. Lehrer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 4:43pm David D:

Speedy recovery, Henry! Yes, I just talked all about the Kreisler controversy in fact. I guess he really liked the song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 4:46pm northguineahills:

Somehow missed this swans.

good evening dave & everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 4:51pm David D:

Hey Kuba! Yes, it is a great bit of concrete, isn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 4:54pm kuba:

as an concrete enthusiast i must concur
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 4:55pm kuba:

always nice to finally hear something that you know only by reference (e.g. from the simpsons)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:03pm David D:

Did the Simpsons also have a modern major-general?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 5:10pm kuba:

well, that would be sideshow bob, i assume? my knowledge of this musical is limited
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:14pm David D:

Amanda would know.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 5:21pm northguineahills:

I missed the simpsons reference, I can only think of the HMS Pinafore (but they constantly referenced and lampooned musicals, so, who knows).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:21pm David D:

West Slavic will do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:22pm David D:

NGH: Sounds about right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 5:34pm kuba:

whoops, i might have conflated that! that's what you get when you get your education from tv...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 5:37pm kuba:

Today I Learned: these are two separate musicals! thank you and good night.

The jerusalem artichoke is native to the midwest of the US. The native americans spread it through much of North America. It was part of the Columbian Exchange, which is why it's popular in parts of Europe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:42pm Scraps deSelby:

Thirty years ago, I was really sad when I found out The Electric Company was cancelled years ago then. I assumed it was still on perpetually, it was so good... HOW could they let it be cancelled?? Etc
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:43pm Scraps deSelby:

Fargo North, Decoder!

sigh....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:48pm David D:

Scraps: Yes, only six seasons in fact - but then years of repeats in New York at least. I didn't even know it had been cancelled at my young age.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:48pm David D:

Kuba: Speaking of education from TV - anyhow, good night over there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:50pm David D:

NGH: It has a weird marginal existence over here, actually. It can be made into schnapps and the like, not sure if a lot of people cook with them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 5:51pm northguineahills:

I think they rebooted the electric company about a decade ago. Never saw that one and have no idea if it's still on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:57pm Scraps deSelby:

I was of an age between the boomers and gen x, the birth trough that grew up in the seventies. So I was gifted with the first Sesama Street (I was five) and the first Electric Company; and I watched Scoolhouse Rock the first time on Saturday mornings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 5:58pm Scraps deSelby:

Sesama Street!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:00pm David D:

Yes, it was Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers, and then Electric Company, followed by Zoom (I think) - at least on WNET.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:02pm northguineahills:

I missed this Eno/Hopkins/Abrahams until now. Quite nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:06pm Scraps deSelby:

Didn’t like Zoom — it talked down to me, I felt. ;-)

The seventies generation’s Mickey Mouse Club.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:07pm northguineahills:

I thought it was around until the early 80s (Electric Company) until I read an article about the history of the show in the late 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:08pm northguineahills:

I have no idea what Zoom is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:09pm David D:

Scraps: I was never sure why I didn't want to watch Zoom, actually. You might have just explained it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:10pm northguineahills:

(But part of my belated bday gift [she messed up my address] from my wife included USPS Mr Rogers forever stamps)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:11pm Scraps deSelby:

Mr Rogers Forever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:12pm David D:

Happy birthday, NGH! And enjoy those stamps - if anyone was ever deserving of that honor...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:13pm doctorjazz:

Creepy!
Ready to hit the road (Jack), thanks for the fine tunes, David!
(Happy Birthday NGH!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:14pm northguineahills:

It was a little over two weeks ago, but just got the package. (never using the stamps) I probably liked the stamps then the other goodies I got.

Thanks David and doctorjazz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:14pm David D:

Thanks, Doctorjazz! Have a good commute...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:14pm northguineahills:

Wow, haven't heard this Thomas Brinkmann, and I have ton of his stuff....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:16pm David D:

NGH: It's all atomic colors, or something. Antimony Yellow caught my eye, so to speak.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:33pm Webhamster Henry:

ZOOM was like the Micky Mouse Club, CTW style. It was at its best with its ubbi-dubbi weather reports.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:39pm David D:

Henry: Yes, I also liked the way they sang the Zip Code.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 6:45pm Scraps deSelby:

Argh, I can still hear that 0, 2 1, 3 4! Even though I didn’t watch it much. At least, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:45pm northguineahills:

No such thing as too much Cecil!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 6:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 7:00pm Webhamster Henry:

0-2-1-3-4!

I just want to note that the cat enjoyed this Cecil Taylor very much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 7:00pm northguineahills:

Classic lineup!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/18 7:01pm David D:

Thanks, NGH, Henry. Scraps and everyone - have a great week!
