Hey, Mona! Thanks for being a fill-in hero.

Way to roll with the technical punches. The show's already been swell nonetheless!

I hope you're feeling combobulated by now as the hassle of getting into the station fades and the weirdness of being there while the big light is still glaring loses its power to distract and the hookup problems get resolved and you ride the wave of live DJ adaptiveness to triumph.

We had a pair of geese with a handful of goslings, but the little ones were only around for a day. The pair is still here, but no babies (though it could be a different pair, I didn't check IDs). A couple hawks and herons. Gonna be a big snake year if the amount of sea grass already established is any indicator (and it usually is).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm
McGroovey:

There are multiple verses of Hallelujah that are rarely heard. I think I remember hearing or reading an interview with Leonard Cohen or John Cale, talking about Hallelujah. Cale told Cohen he wanted to cover it, asked Cohen for the correct lyrics, and Cohen sent Cale verses that weren't on the original Leonard Cohen album version, and Cale picked his favorites. Cohen apparently started doing it live John Cale's way after that.

That's more-or-less the story.

I think the Jeff Buckley version also follows the John Cale version (which is on the Cale album Fragments of a Rainy Season).

Hallelujah is a great song. Since I'm not plugged into pop culture, I didn't know EVERYONE was covering it until I went to a couple open mics, and EVERYONE was covering it, and then I checked on YouTube, and EVERYONE on YouTube was covering it. I only had heard the LC, Cale, and Jeff Buckley versions until then.

It was the first song I learned to play on the ukulele, and the only song I can always remember without looking for my song charts (even my own songs).

But I'd never play it in front of other people because EVERYONE plays it more-than-enough.

Niall:

My grandmother here in Ireland used to tell me that I would run around when I was small, singing "brown girl in the ring." I had no recollection of it and was mortified that I sang some horribly racist song on the regular as a three, four-year-old. Thank god someone played Boney M at a party sometime in my late thirties.

Oh, the "Roscoe" song! This is such, such, such a good cut. Is the rest of their stuff this good?

Polari's a fascinating subject. Its roots go back to 18th-century (or even earlier) Roma and underworld slang. Terms like drag, butch, campy, ogle, and a few others come from Polari. Bona drag = "nice threads."

If you're still casting about for additional song notions... the discussion of Polari makes me want to hear Bowie's Girl Loves Me again, or... gee, we haven't heard any Cure yet today (and it's always interesting to see what people reach for when they reach for some Cure).
