Ok, where's my service dog, that's part of the package, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:04pm dale:

taking us several places at once is what it's sometimes about.

I hate Hartfield airport w/ the burning of 1x10^2000 suns. I'll pay hundreds of dollars more to avoid a connection there *shudder*
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:11pm chris:

i don't think i've been to Hartfield. hopefully, that won't ever happen, i guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:11pm northguineahills:

also hate de Gaulle airport, yet, unlike most, I love LaGuardia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:12pm chresti:

Halo!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:13pm chris:

they could not put the frickin airport farther away than de Gaulle. those silly Parisians.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:13pm dale:

love teresa teng. i have an album that she sings commonamyhouse on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:14pm chresti:

I have not flown, on an airplane since'05
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Is that like how Paris keeps all the tall Business Buildings in this one enclave in the north - like they're an embarrassment?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:16pm Kat in Chicago:

I don't mind LaGuardia for the most part, but I will not fly out of there in the evening again. After a series of delays, American canceled one of my flights right before midnight. I rebooked for an AM flight but we weren't allowed to stay in the secure area and weren't given hotel vouchers, so I spent the night in the food court. It is not a quiet or comfortable place.
  Thu. 10/11/18 6:16pm spodiodi:

Trying to avoid it at the moment, chresti... cheers to you

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:17pm Carmichael:

My brother in law is a retired USAF pilot who now flies for FedEx. He drives across the country because he hates to fly. Why? In his words, "TSA". He also vehemently argues that "peanut butter is NOT a liquid!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:17pm northguineahills:

The Irkutsk radio station would have paired loverly w/ Gary's Bodega Pop gulag depression set last night. (GTDS stream).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:17pm chris:

quick update, chresti: flying sucks now more than ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:18pm northguineahills:

I have had to sleep overnight in Hartsfield on three occasions on the floor. Never, again! I'd rather drive there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:18pm JakeGould:

Hey! Happy to be listening live for once!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

9/11 happened because a few people had boxcutters. They could be plastic...TSA is one of Harry Shearer's many fave things to examine factually w/ great irony on 'Le Show'...maybe it's prevented stuff & we don't know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:20pm northguineahills:

well, technically, glass can qualify as a liquid. It just might take a century for gravity for anyone to notice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:20pm chresti:

tsa took a cat shaped key chain from me at Burbank airport once-scared the hell out of my 12 year old son-I wasn't even getting on a plane!
Cheers to you too spodiodi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:21pm dale:

last time i flew was '04 when i had a job that required it. when i had a job.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

What about Plasma cutters??
...I took the Greyhound all the way across the USA diagonally. I'd suffer anything to avoid that again...I'd like to do the Train just once - but not cheap I'm told...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:22pm Kat in Chicago:

I doubt it has prevented much, RRNov63. It's security theater. I do get spared some of it as I'm apparently considered not much of a risk (white, older, female) and am generally gifted with a Precheck logo on my boarding pass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:23pm northguineahills:

When my car was in the shop when I was 19, I took a Greyhound from Gainesville to Tampa. What is usually a 2.5 hour drive, ended up being almost 6 hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:23pm chresti:

Thanks chris! I had a feeling that was the case!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:23pm Kat in Chicago:

Train can be nice if you're not in a hurry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it hasn't stopped all our Domestic Terrorists. Far far far more of them. & all they have to do is open fire...& that was both before & after 9/11 - but no one registers it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

ngh - I'm talking three days - & nights - on the bus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:25pm Kat in Chicago:

My records got swabbed at LGA when I came back from the WFMU record fair a couple of years ago.

Adriene! It’s nice to hear your voice on your own show. Always love what you’ve brought to Wake

This PBS program about what goes into air travel has been interesting:

I take the train to oakland-it's very long. The way up the coast is faster than the way down
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:27pm chresti:

Hi coel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:28pm northguineahills:

@Kat: That's a crime against humanity! I've flown from FL and Mexico w/ multiple flight cases and recs in my carry-ons, and never had a problem at LaGuardia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:29pm chresti:

Hoping for the bullet train although I'll be in my 80s if it ever gets completed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:29pm Kat in Chicago:

ngh, you got lucky I guess. My touring DJ friends have had problems with theirs (and a lot of them have switched to carrying their music on USB sticks to use with CDJs). Apparently they show up weird on the scanner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:31pm chresti:

can you mail your records to the destination?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:34pm chresti:

she sounds reassuring
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:35pm Kat in Chicago:

@chresti that's an option if time allows for a post office trip. They're heavy and need some care in packaging, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:35pm chresti:

I could never sleep on flights abroad
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:36pm chresti:

@Kat probably expensive too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:36pm Kat in Chicago:

I have yet to cross the ocean. My friend in Berlin really wants me to come out, but I'm super nervous about even an eight hour flight.

sounds like jetblu, Roman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The state of Airlines & Transpo & how they've changed make for a useful metaphor for our infrastructure & quality of life in society & what & why &tc. ...In itself - I've flown very little - & still find it a good cure for Atheism - in both the positive & negative senses...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:38pm dale:

i bewrong! wet virgineeya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:38pm northguineahills:

I sleep on flights by barely sleeping beforehand, have a few drinks at the airports, a shot once aloft, and I sleep well, it works for all but trans-Pacific flights. However, since I always get a window seat, I'm always curious about the geography if the sky is clear, then I can't sleep. I used to make my wife look up our flight's position, and I would tell her where we were by looking out the window.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:38pm chresti:

ha ha dale!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:38pm Kat in Chicago:

@chresti really! I've never been there, just passed it on the highway.
Avatar Thu. 10/11/18 6:39pm Rocky Horror:

It's funny not hearing John Denver singing this song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:40pm chresti:

I love mangled up covers
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Here in North New England - they always say there's not enuff money for decent trains or even buslines
...but that's a lie. The truth is the whole point of being here North of Northeast of Nowhere is to be away from Civilization...
The general pathology in the USA about Mass Transit & insistence on individual transpo is too much for here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:40pm dale:

i clicky starred - so nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:40pm coelacanth∅:

what do they swab records with? if it's an alcohol base i'd say pay for the record then you may swab it; and by the way Fuck you! if you'd like to clean it for me Thank you. please use distilled h2o with a little photoflo added.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:42pm JakeGould:

Swab the decks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:42pm chresti:

the automobile industry helped do away with public transit
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:44pm JakeGould:

@chresti: And the civil rights movement helped fuel the auto industry since if anyone can sit anywhere on a bus, just get your own car and do what you wish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:44pm northguineahills:

Worst TSA situation, I got a large toolbox for xmas, and I forgot to put it in my luggage, and I was running late, so I had to surrender it. Second (non-TSA) related incident, I had two identical carry-on luggages, one w/ my clothes, etc, and the other w/ mezcales, y salsas picantes. They were identical, and I mixed them up. The security in Mexico City confiscated all of my yummy mezcales y salsas. estaba muy triste ese dia.

Rule 1: Follow the money.
...especially - USA...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:44pm chresti:

gosh I've never swabbed records-I had a roomate that washed them with dish soap, in the sink
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Keep people in place & they're easier to control...anyhow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:45pm chresti:

except cars good only be bought by wealthy people-in the early days
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:46pm northguineahills:

The federal gov't approved a bullet train for FL, but gov. skeletor scott decided not to take the money, b/c, fuck us, that's why. Counties in central FL have still somehow build a light rail system around Orlando. apparently, GOPers hate mass transit.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:48pm coelacanth∅:

chresti i wash them using my ancient "discwasher" brush, on the turntable. i ran out of fluid many years ago and since rca (?) bought discwasher it's crap so i made my own. a pint of distilled water with a few drops of "photoflo" in it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:49pm JakeGould:

Anyway, Gary Numan sang about “Cars” and is a loony fascist. Still a good touring musician.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:50pm Krys O.:

Forgive me, Father. My last flight was in 2002. My ex and I flew in and out of MacArthur in Ronkonkoma to Nashvegas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:50pm JakeGould:

I cleaned my records with a Discwasher and my t-shirt when i was a teen. Only quality Ocean Pacific and Canal Jean Company t-shirts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:51pm JakeGould:

And apropos to this show… This is the kind of show that makes me think I am listening to WFMU and that is a good thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:52pm coelacanth∅:

"cars" was a brilliant jab at people's delusional sense of security while in them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:52pm chresti:

My ex had a thing with velvet covering and a compartment in the wood handle that contained a vial of fluid-not sure what that fluid was
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:52pm Krys O.:

Best flight was my first in 1981 to Paris and I landed in Orly. I was only 17 and headed to study at Alliance Francaise for six weeks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:53pm chris:

thanks, Adriene. this was a happy flight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:54pm chresti:

my first flight was to Lake Tahoe, to get married in 78-it was a short flight
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:54pm Krys O.:

Thank you for another great show, Adriene.
  Thu. 10/11/18 6:55pm amier:

this was such a wonderful way to wind down the day. thanks Adriene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:55pm Kat in Chicago:

that's discwasher @chresti. I still have one of those but need fluid for it. might try coel's formula.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:56pm coelacanth∅:

most record cleaners are bullshit. detrimental crap that at very best won't clean your records. when discwasher, which was the best cleaner available, sold out, the new one looked similar but left lint on the records. that's probably still available.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:57pm Kat in Chicago:

yeah I have some of the new one @coel but it doesn't seem especially effective.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:57pm Kat in Chicago:

why the photoflo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:59pm coelacanth∅:

Kat, it's a shame. good product and they had to mess with it.
the photoflo (as with film) helps to keep dusty and lint from sticking. makes it slippery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 6:59pm coelacanth∅:

(..."dust and lint"...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/11/18 7:00pm Kat in Chicago:
