Isn't the internet great? You don't have to work very hard to find plenty of failure. The internet is like 87% failure.

Is Glen Branca jazz?

Wild Neil: I would say not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 3:58pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

Is Glen Branca darkwave?
  Thu. 5/17/18 3:59pm Dean:

Not to worry. This morning Trouble played a tune by the National Jazz Trio of Scotland. Wasn't jazz. Wasn't "national," nor from Scotland. Might have been a trio, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 4:08pm northguineahills:

Always loved Brance! He was great live!
  Thu. 5/17/18 4:08pm mary:

Lesson No. 1
Live, it was gigantically, ecstatically wonderful & it even sounds great on the radio. Wow.
Thank you, Fabio! Was hoping you would...inc #3 and more, I hope.

  Thu. 5/17/18 5:02pm Dean:

I'll bite, @?. No, I don't think Branca is boring, but there's a reason they call it "drone." Also, sometimes music (or anything) that isn't immediately captivating turns out to be quite rich over time. Alternatively. sometimes arguably objectively boring music--I'm thinking of much of Telemann--turns out to be just the right kind of boring. I'm a huge fan of Telemann, precisely because some of his vast ouevre barely manages to keep my attention without demanding too much of it.

wouldn't it be 'nom de musique'?
  Thu. 5/17/18 5:14pm Comstock:

i suppose it depends if the artist is creating music by composing or by performing

First saw 2001 c.'68, then again in '78, when it was screened at LA's Cineramadome on Sunset Blvd.

saw it in 70mm at bradford years ago- maybe it was in 2001, amazing

i liked the hateful 8. didn't like that they destroyed one of the oldest martin guitars in existence just to get a reaction out of the actors (SUPPOSEDLY)

any plans for a national release of Clay’s movie? I rented it on Amazon this week and it was fantastic

lived in brooklyn and manhattan from 85-'05. can't imagine being able to afford it today.

Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 5:23pm Fox:

I'm currently in a state of desperation trying to find a way to live in NYC paying no more than $450 a month. It's pretty impossible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:24pm northguineahills:

@Comstock: My definitions of composition and performance are rather elastic and bleed into each other.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:25pm northguineahills:

@Fox: Last year, my shitty 440 Sq Ft railroad apt went up to $2500/mo. in Bushwick. It's why I'm in FL and my wife is in Crown Heights. (trying to pivot us out of NYC)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 5:26pm dale:

fox - you should have married tat old ballerina/actress who paid $28 a month in soho - you'd be grandfathered in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:27pm northguineahills:

@dale: damnit, missed my chance!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:28pm Michael 98145:

gotta wonder who is making that kind of dough. here on the left coast rents have gone stratospheric .
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 5:28pm Fox:

Yeah, I'm willing to look into all sorts of outside the box options. Being an adult with an adult amount of belongings and two cats is making this really difficult.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:29pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

on the gentrification/rental-market scale, DC seems to be an even 10 years behind Brooklyn. I've been using it as an accurate gauge on what's coming here. Williamsburg = Columbia Heights, etc. It's not a perfect match, but it's generally close...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 5:29pm dale:

440 sq feet? that was spacious!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:30pm Michael 98145:

- great show - today, Fabio
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 5:31pm dale:

this is good stuff....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:31pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

The crucial difference is population diversity: NYC/Bkln still has it over DC. We don't have the same density, so all the diversity is being more fully flushed out. It's all clones of the same five white affluent 32 year-olds. And they're starting to breed.
  Thu. 5/17/18 5:32pm nic:

great love this !!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Also: what they said. Fantastic stuff here. Best radio on earth. And elsewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:34pm northguineahills:

@dale: Try freelancing from home w/ your wife at the same time w/o killing each other in a smaller space (we still nearly did).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:35pm northguineahills:

My parent's saw my house, and remarked how small it is (it is by FL standards), but it's WWII vintage and at 750 sq feet, it seems gigantic for just myself to live in (my brothers live in mcmansions).

What he bested. Best radio evvahh

for a year we worked a few blocks apart and took the f train in together and home together. it was all i could do to lie about my lunch schedule so i didn't have to have lunch with her everyday too. i feel like a schmuck for saying that but i had to have alone time.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 5:40pm dale:

i've done some painting for a few people with mcmansions - ZERO soul in those homes, the trim and moulding is cheap tiny clamshell crap ,vaulted ceilings and the sound echoes, the furniture is usually too small for the space, just a shitty deluded self perception of 'having arrived'

  Thu. 5/17/18 5:43pm ?:

Dean .. wouldnt have thought of telemann
.. even if telemann is formula composing
its relaxing at worst ... branca is loud and montonous ..maybe that is hypnotic to some folks ... but i listened to all the punk stuff live in nyc ..loved all of it nearly .. i could not understand the appeal of branca .. but there is a following i guess there is a niche for everyone .. no matter how awful it is .. i mean yoko was a contentious subject ..even the greatful dead had dark star .. fabio's shows are always the best no matter what .. and every one should express what they are .. no matter what .. even trump // thanks for responding
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:44pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@dale: for far too long, I worked for a publishing company that did business magazines for the corporate-class boneheads behind McMansion developers. Talk about working for satan...
Avatar Thu. 5/17/18 5:45pm Fox:

northguineahills: yeah, my bf works from home four days a week and has Tourette's, and I'm always home on Disability and have chronic migraines. After a few years living together and driving each other crazy, we are now breaking up, he's moving out, and I've got to figure out what to do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 5:45pm dale:

i designed brochures for falcon corporate jets. i designed an issue of alf magazine too. alf was more fulfilling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 5:46pm joe mulligan:

@Rev. - I've been doing a couple DC trips over the last 2 weeks and noticed how spot-on you are about the gentrification time-lag compared to BK. I think the homogeneity is industry-related guessing b/c of political opportunities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/17/18 5:47pm dale:

fox - sorry it has to come to a parting to remain sane. if only you could get a little buffer zone..
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:48pm northguineahills:

Shit, fox, I'm sorry, that sucks. My wife and I nearly broke up after we were both laid off our permanent jobs and she got diagnosed w/ cancer and we had to pay out of pocket (it happened a few weeks after she was laid off). She's fine now, and the stress of being underemployed and broke made me look for new horizons. It took a while, but we've mended our relationship.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:48pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Alf would indeed be more fulfilling. Compared with endless cover-photo-shoots featuring middle-aged white guys in suits (MAWGs)..
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/17/18 5:49pm Michael 98145:

MAWG swimsuit editions would be even worse
