A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

so true!@roberto! so true...
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 9:35am Rev. Turnip Druid:

@Derek: There's got to be a market for an app for ducking conference calls: it would take recordings of your own voice saying a series of meaningless business metaphors (low-hanging fruit, circle-back, not a heavy lift, etc) and randomly play them back into the call. More time for FMU, and the office team will all be nodding in agreement. We'll all be heroes.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 9:36am Derek Bee:

@Rev that's gas - yes, get that app developed stat. What would be a good name for it? Oh man, "circle-back" please...don't... that's way too real :D
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 9:39am Chris from DC:

Gonna need a timeline for putting together that app so we can plan the schedule for deliverables. Some face time to go over feedback would be good.

@Chris - stop! :) We'll need to discuss a priority on those deliverables too, need to get a timeline from development...I'm supposed to be listening to this call ha ha....I wish I had the gonads to drop one of these into the convo unwarranted bring it to a screeching halt. Possible app name: ConfCon

Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 9:47am Rev. Turnip Druid:

I was thinking the conference-dodging app would work without being detected, like the character Chauncey Gardner in BEING THERE (innocently talking about plant-care & being interpreted as political genius) .... so we could call the app NOT BEING THERE.

Yes and no Ms. Trouble. The Hüskers were very accepted by the hardcore community - kind of. They were accepted by the other hardcore bands criss-crossing the country. But in these pre internet days some mean leather jacketed spiked haired youth never saw what they looked like - ordinary guys. And were sometimes disappointed that their super fuzz heroes weren’t all punked out like they were. The other bands didn’t give a shit coz they were musical gods

Grant Hart once told me that before at one of their shows a punk that was wearing a Hüsker Dü sash across his leather jacket sneered at him. He then told him “Hi I’m Grant from Hüsker Dü” and the poor kid looked like he was going to either cry or punch Greg in the face.

One time I happened to be in a huge retro arcade in New Hampshire the same day as the world video game championships. One guy was going for a record in Ms. Pac Man, but needed to use the bathroom, so he left Ms. Pac Man in a corner where he knew she would be safe for exactly 12 minutes and 30 seconds (or something).

That voice over in R.M.A./Falco sounds EXACTLY like "Spike" from Portlandia!

They need a lyric about how they kill him and throw his body in pauper's grave
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 10:42am northguineahills:

I've told this this story before, when thrifting w/ a friend in the summer of '98, we found a Falco poster, and he put it on his front door. The next day, Falco died, he never put a poster on his front door ever again.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 10:42am northguineahills:

@Chris: It's the version I have.

What D. Lightfoot said. I'm chuckling over Falco writing himself into this timeline.

I don't know why, but ABBA's Dancing Queen always makes me think of David Soul's (of Starsky and Hutch fame) Don't Give Up On Us... everytime. weird.

Awesome set - from Husker Du to ABBA! Making Thursday seem, less Thursday - Thx

Always liked this one. WHFS used to play this often way back when.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 11:25am Passaic River Blues:

Love this song, almost as much as I love Soft Cell's "Sex Dwarf", definitely a strong contender for GREATEST SONG IN RECORDED HISTORY.

Echoing the Toad. My brain is expecting a Weasel-playing-some-rock-n-roll mic break after this.

  Thu. 10/18/18 11:30am PMD:

My memory of this song is the host of miss America singing it. If my memory serves me correctly. Back in the 70’s
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 11:31am Itzall Ablurr:

PMD, it must have been after the song was already made famous by The Wings... haha
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 11:31am northguineahills:

Don't you love it at work, when you have three executives all giving you conflicting suggestions for the same project, if it weren't for Trouble, I'd be mad by now! (already probably considered insane by contemporary civil society)
