You need a bathing cap for that beard!

it finally became winter last week. everyone at work is getting sick and i feel like i have a half-arsed cold.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:12pm Meghan:

We are still trying to get out of our winter! It's trying to hold on like a white walker!
  Thu. 5/17/18 12:12pm elwyn:

oh. and last week Australia had its worst gun massacre in 22 years. 7 people died.
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:13pm Parq:

That look just like one of our parties. Only in our case, no-one was nearly that good looking, the room was a mess and the lamps were second-hand. But other than that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:14pm Meghan:

Yeah, all of these women have really really good hair....

wow. A House of Love cover!

Down here in FL, everyone's kids are getting sick, so, it's only a matter of time before I get sick.

oh congrats Elwyn! You're on your way to becoming the US! You only need a few more in the next month or so.... ugh
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:15pm northguineahills:

(not wintry, but definitely very wet this last week).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:16pm Meghan:

very wet here all week and weekend too....
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:16pm northguineahills:

superb, elwyn, wish I was going the other direction!

"White walker"? Don't know this expression.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:19pm Meghan:

white walker is a character on Game of Thrones.... they only live in the coldest of winter
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:21pm Parq:

βrian, they're also zombies. Google-image the phrase, if you're curious.
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:21pm βrian:

Well, at least I do know that that is a TV show.

Mmm, salt liquorice. Is it Finnish or Dutch?
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:23pm northguineahills:

(decent black licorice in the states)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:24pm Adrian in London:

Ah, right. I once had salmiakki ice cream in Finland, which was… strange
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:25pm Adrian in London:

This is my favourite salmiakki: www.amazon.com...
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:27pm βrian:

I recall using Liquorice root when brewing a stout. A very nice flavor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:29pm Meghan:

Adrian, I have a box of that one! I got 4 various boxes, but they mostly were very menthol tasting. Though, I think that was the only one out of the group that wasn't. This is the one I like- www.amazon.com...

would you say that confectionery in the USA is slightly regionalized? i found it easier to get Heath bars (my fav) when on the west and east coasts but not in between.

My Shjip has come in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:32pm Adrian in London:

@Meghan: These are fun too: boiled sweets with a real kick to them. You can stuff a packet into 2/3 of a bottle of vodka and after a couple of days at room temperature they dissolve, leaving a black liquid. Stick it in the freezer and it's lovely and syrupy www.hongkong.fi...
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:33pm βrian:

@dutchtheo: Just add ketjap?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 12:34pm Meghan:

Oh no..... this could be dangerous Dutchtheo.... mmmmmmm
  Thu. 5/17/18 12:34pm KP:

I failed the math problem!
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 12:35pm dutchtheo:

actually it is ketjap time in a few minutes; dinner time!

Oh boy!

@ßrian Deffo not salmon; I think Google might be stumbling at 'salmiakki'

βrian Try John Fogerty's rhubarb pie; Rhubarb Pie, It might rain tomorrow, Better get some before I die
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:23pm northguineahills:

I used to play w/ Kamala (the vocalist) from Bombay Rickey (about a decade ago)
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:23pm dutchtheo:

But serious i had my second rhubarb pie already this year, early harvest like the spinache we had for dinner, no not with ketjap
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 1:23pm Jeff Moore:

More Bombay Rickey here:


It was cool to watch them do their live set for Dan's show - including of course seeing Kamala Sankaram standing there and then ALL THAT VOICE comes out.
  Thu. 5/17/18 1:25pm elwyn:

i haven't had a pie for so long except meat pies
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 1:26pm Meghan:

I had they perform at a Festival I put together. They are the nicest group of people. Jeff was my initial contact and he's great. Kamala has such an amazing voice... it's so powerful! The first song off the new album is like- woah! seriously?!
  Thu. 5/17/18 1:27pm Lemuel Johnzon:

@dutchtheo... have you ever tried substituting Japanese knot weed for rhubarb... it can be done. Just saying. I like that social climber song... I can't be a 9-5er because I just woke up!
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:27pm Dave B:

Is a meat pie REALLY a pie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 1:28pm Meghan:

Oh man, Dave is getting philosophical... It's a savory pie!
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:29pm Dave B:

Me Oh My, I Love Pie!

Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:30pm northguineahills:

@elwyn: I make a lot of savory meat pies, both Cornish and Mexican style!

The rain in roaring so loud right now I can barely hear the music in ear buds even w/ the volume ear-bleedingly loud.

My habibti makes a rhubarb pie that has a very light custard. So very good, but she's abroad at the moment.

Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:34pm βrian:

@Parq: That's ok. I set you up.
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:35pm Dave B:

and he hits it out of the Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 1:36pm Ike:

He was OK, I guess, but I preferred the earlier 120 Min. VJ who reminded me just a little tiny bit of Morrissey (without the militant veganism obviously because that would really put a crimp in your VJing). But I'm terrible w/faces so that association may have never made a lick of sense.
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:36pm northguineahills:

When I was in grad school, and just moved to NYC (2000-2003), I was hitting about 10 shows a week (sometimes, multiple per night), and would be studying/grading my student's papers during the show.
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:36pm βrian:

In another month, it will be strawberry-rhubarb pie and that's a whole 'nother thang.
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:38pm dutchtheo:

Yes with custard is it! A bjor in irish,
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:38pm northguineahills:

I love this Le Tigre album!
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:40pm northguineahills:

I would often be found djing grading papers or book light as well in those days. I often got beer, hot sauce, or guac stains on my students' papers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 1:41pm Meghan:

Oh Ike, I wasn't a fan of him... i preferred the other 120 minute VJ's as well. Dave Kendall and before him Kevin Seal (when Dave Kendall was a blur reporting from London)
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:41pm βrian:

Better guac than guan.
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:50pm northguineahills:

I don't think I've heard Wild Flag on WFMU before (I have this album).
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:52pm βrian:

"Showhat." Heh.
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:53pm Dave B:

@NGH - via the little search button on the FMU homepage - looks like a magnifying glass - wfmu.org...
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:55pm northguineahills:

ahhh, Dave: that's when I was working an insane job, I somehow missed that. (although I saw Wild Flag around the same time live [where I got the album])
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:56pm βrian:

In Wisconsin, it's more the motorcycles that go "blat."
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:56pm βrian:

(I never understood the appeal of riding a motorbike that sounds broken.)
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:57pm βrian:

Oh, now Meghan is putting us on an ice floe and sending us off. *sniff*
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 1:58pm northguineahills:
