Spirit & Opportunity - 8 years ago? Wow.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:07pm Kat in Chicago:

I love going straight from the footwork set on /rupture's show to this. WFMU Wednesdays are made of awesome.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:09pm sɐןןɐp uı uɐʌ:

My life is turning upside down. I shall be scarce most probably.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:12pm Stevel:

Van: You're losing your caps too. Scary stuff.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:12pm efd:

Van, I understand you're going to have to be changing your handle soon.

"Van in Transition"

Happy how do you do to all for 2012
EFD--I have a request for new Guided by Voices--haven't heard more than two songs but they sound pretty good
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:16pm G:

mash this "radiation" up with "devastator" j/k
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:16pm PB:

Second that request for a listen to the new GBV. For what it's worth, it got a good review in the NYT.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:17pm Stevel:

Radish-tator! Radish-tator! Radish-tator!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:19pm sɐןןɐp uı uɐʌ:

Yeah, soon I will be Homeless Van I guess. Then after that, who knows? Somewhere around DC.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:20pm glenn:

you'll be van in a van.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:21pm sɐןןɐp uı uɐʌ:

Down by the river.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:22pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Whither Revillos?
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:23pm Richard from Venezuela:

for who missed GBV on letterman: http://goo.gl/1uZgC
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:32pm kate:

woohoo treehouse records! few blocks from my old house
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:34pm PB:

The better question is why would anyone ever choose to cover an ELO track.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:35pm G:

tough crowd! lol
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:35pm Stevel:

PB: Depends what you cover it with.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:36pm TD:

The spider song on the new GBV is a rocker & my current fave. Chocolate boy is good too.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:36pm kate:

i LOVE this song. they are so good. my best of 2012 too! some more info... http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lures/147640092004509

  Wed. 1/4/12 9:45pm glenn:

i'm gonna have to join them on the ice. e.l.o.'s not my favourite.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:46pm Stevel:

glenn! Its starting to crack!!! move towards the shore!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:47pm karate chopper:

Carolee reminds me a lot of Helium. And Mary TImony is one of my favorites. Good looks, efd
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:47pm G:

not everyone has good taste :-P
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:48pm karate chopper:

Also, did anyone else see Greg Demos fall on his ass on national TV last night?
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:49pm Richard from Venezuela:

Carolee song is very good.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:50pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Gbv-gimme Bev Bevan any day.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:50pm glenn:

when i was 7 i went through the ice on our farm pond. it wasn't fun.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:51pm Stevel:


:35 Pretty cool.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:52pm Kurt masta Kurt:

Enjoying the show as I put away Christmas ornaments
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:56pm TD:

I've seen Greg Demos fall before, but I've never seen Mitch Mitchell play guitar without smoking incessantly. Also noticed they made Kevin swap out his x-rated drums for boring ones on TV.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:57pm Living Doll:

I'd have been here sooner but I was busy looking at kitten record covers
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:58pm miss cheri:

heeey evan,, i know i'm not the first one to say ,,, happy 2012 and best wishes to you efd!!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:02pm G:

  Wed. 1/4/12 10:03pm TJ:

Nice, I heard clay pigeon play convoy not long ago. Good stuff.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:04pm glenn:

some new country act did a cover, but i can't remember who.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:04pm JMD:

now those is some fantastic BG vocals!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:04pm Barkevious Shabazz:

It's the orignal lineup of CW McCall!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:05pm karate chopper:

@TD Yeah, it was weird not seeing a cooler on stage either.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:06pm Living Doll:

Convoy is a good song. No denying it.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:06pm Dave B:

That was awesome good buddy
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:08pm miss cheri:

evan---keep the funk & 70s alive!!!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:09pm Living Doll:

Does Evan play funk?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:11pm efd:

Maybe that was a polite way of saying "the f**in' 70s." Like "truckin' convoy."
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:13pm Julie:

the funkin' 70s. That's the name of your next premium, no ACTUAL funk included
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:13pm Destroit:

I totally truckin agree efd
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:13pm Droll:

@Doll, If you define "funk" as 70's CC records, he plays more than any station in the lower 48.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:13pm glenn:

an old friend of mine would pick up his neighbour's c.b. whenever he was taping stuff on his stereo, for some still unexplained reason. the steelbender tapes became legend.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:14pm miss cheri:

happy 2012 julie,,,
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:15pm Julie:

thanks, Cheri, same to you
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:16pm Living Doll:

CC=creative commons? Creedence Clearwater? 10CC?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:17pm Barkevious Shabazz:

You dare call that truckin' thing human?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:19pm miss cheri:

two of my fave dee jays are here!! oohhh julie did you read my comments during joe's & therese's show??
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:20pm Droll:

@Doll, CC=Canadian Content. Think April Wine.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:20pm Living Doll:

  Wed. 1/4/12 10:21pm glenn:

actually, we call it cancon.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:22pm glenn:

p.s. april wine is truckin' awesome.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:22pm Droll:

@Doll, I don't think that was the right kind or amount of enthusiasm for CC, the 70's, or April Wine.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:23pm glenn:

don't forget crowbar, a foot in coldwater, edward bear, five man electrical band.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:24pm Living Doll:

Cancon sounds like a convention.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:24pm PB:

  Wed. 1/4/12 10:25pm Julie:

Like Bachmann-Turner overdrive? The great Michelle Bachmann/Ted Turner supergroup?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:27pm Barkevious Shabazz:

re: April Wine it's more like can'tcon.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:28pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & all!
Happy 2012!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:29pm glenn:

i disagree 110%. they're very underrated and they put on a smokin' show. i've probably seen them 10 times, starting in 1976, maybe.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:32pm miss cheri:

julie you did'nt read the comments that i posted on both shows?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:34pm glenn:

i'm sure she had better things to do, like drinking her own blood or going on a date with ted bundy or something.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:35pm Dave B:

I stepped away for a moment, and coulda sworn this was GFRR...

Good stuff!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:35pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--is "We're on the Right Track" on that Numero Group release?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:35pm Julie:

@Glenn !!!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:37pm Holly in NC:

Numero rules! And it's great to have Siltbreeze back in action.
But that 'Stephanie Says' cover just made go pull out the original.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:37pm Dave B:

in related news... might just grab a ticket for Feb 18 at the Beacon after reading this... Anyone else in

  Wed. 1/4/12 10:38pm Living Doll:

I like Frampton better with no hair
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:40pm Holly in NC:

@Dave B -

Oh my gosh! How totally cool!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:44pm efd:

@MichaelftLC I don't see that track on there.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:44pm Dave B:

That story is mad good, eh?
54 LP Custom... I'm thinkin PF will wield that mighty axe at the Beacon (and perhaps the WFMU studio if someone can coerce him to stopping by.. wink wink, nudge nudge)

either which way, I'm grabbin a tick. Birthday present from me to me...
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:45pm Dave B:

hey Julie!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:46pm miss cheri:

evan ,,julie do you want me to sing a few lines from my favorite tune??
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:47pm glenn:

i want that guitar. he is looking good, for an old geezer.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:50pm Julie:

hey there Dave! Where's a good place to find concert listings, the arb guide is looking a little bare :/
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:51pm Mrs. Geezer Butler:

Train is just destroying the Orange Bowl rent-a-crowd.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:51pm Dave B:

@glenn - HE wants that guitar!

Just look at that smile!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:51pm Mrs. Geezer Butler:

Train is just destroying the Orange Bowl rent-a-crowd.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:51pm Living Doll:

That is a great story.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:52pm efd:

@Dave B, that's a great story! Frampton did re-tweet my tweet about having Jerry Shirley on, maybe that gives me an in. :)
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:52pm Holly in NC:

Oh, liking this (hot knives)!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:53pm Living Doll:

The lady sounds like Cher a little bit
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:53pm chris :: toronto:

@Holly in NC: me too! and what a great name...Hot Knives
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:53pm Rickwaukee:

the riff sounds like Since You Been Gone - Head East
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:54pm glenn:

huh. i thought stone poney's era linda ronstadt myself.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:55pm Dave B:

thats what I'm thinkin efd... Start workin the wheels! If anyone here winds up goin to the beacon for that, I'll call an impromptu meet up at my place (or my local pub). Joint's around the corner from home, gig's on a Saturday.. Think about it!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:56pm Holly in NC:

Have y'all heard about the 700 UNRELEASED THIN LIZZY SONGS Phil had tucked away for safekeeping??!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:56pm Dave B:

Julie - I'm on the mailing lists for a buncha venues, but a decent aggregate is http://nyconcertlist.com
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:57pm miss cheri:

evan & julie you two don't want me to sing?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:57pm chris :: toronto:

good god this is the best song i've ever heard...and easily the best thin lizzy tune (after Boys Are Back)
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:57pm Living Doll:

that's a lot of songs. I wish someone I like would find that kind of stash
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:59pm Dave B:

as Meghan mentioned - its "Tin Lizzy"

To practice speaking with an Irish accent, read/say the following really quickly:

  Wed. 1/4/12 10:59pm Frankie:

Holy hell, this Thin Lizzy song is great. I don't know anything aside from the hits. Where would a newb start?
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:01pm Julie:

thanks Dave, Of course I only know like .5 percent of those names. I'm such a geezer.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:01pm glenn:

  Wed. 1/4/12 11:02pm chris :: toronto:

Um yeah (re listening to more Hot Knives, Flaming Groovies, etc)
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:02pm Living Doll:

would being stabbed with a hot knife being any worse than a regular knife?
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:03pm glenn:

in fact, if you open the dictionary and look at the listing for geezer, there are pictures of julie and peter frampton.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:03pm Dave B:

Don't sweat it Julie... I know less...

kinda upset I missed Yellow Dogs and Free Keys in W'burg last week. Anytime you feel like just checkin stuff out, give a holler...
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:03pm G:

@glenn: o snap
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:04pm miss cheri:

well julie i got to go now i'm sorry i missed your show the other morning,, have a good night evan & julie
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:05pm Dave B:

@G & glenn - http://www.bored383.com/gallery/albums/crap/vw_oh_snap.gif
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:07pm Julie:

whoa Glenn you're brutal
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:07pm Rickwaukee:

I had a bowl of cereal Total at Poisson Rouge one time
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:08pm G:

i was wondering when she'd see that lol
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:08pm glenn:

oooops. i forgot the smiley face :)
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:09pm Dave B:

I need to tap out too. Hope to see you in the Underwater Theme Park in the AM!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:10pm Mike sin:

Evan delivers another fine show! You're delivering more heat than my forced-air HVAC system.

Re: "Total Freakout Vol. 33" -- I think it's only the fourth volume in this series, but the first on a vinyl LP (hence "33"). More of these comps are moving to vinyl only because the CDs just don't do the margins anymore... Better to press up a low volume of vinyl and charge a higher premium.

Just thinkin' and ramblin' here...
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:11pm Julie:

who knew Frampton was cute under all that hair/ EFD hook me up!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:11pm miss cheri:

julie i'll try to catch your show next week,,,night efd & julie!!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:12pm Droll:

@MikeSin, And vinyl slows the inevitable creep onto YouTube, where music votes with it's feet to find freedom.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:12pm chris :: toronto:

honestly, who really does a run of cds anymore? really? who buys them?
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:13pm Mike sin:

I buy CDs like a rabid muthaf***er.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:15pm Dave B:

shared with Ken earlier. My friend Matt (who looks like Frampton) uses it as his avatar:

  Wed. 1/4/12 11:15pm Major Label:

Home taping is killing the music industry.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:15pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)
What's up EFD :)
Happy New Year everyone :)
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:16pm glenn:

i think, but it could be a different guy, that frampton's doing movie makeup now. at least i see the name in the credits of filmsquite a bit.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:18pm glenn:

hey efd, do you know the fathoms? boston's greatest surf band.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:18pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne D!

Top of the evenin' to ya!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:18pm Danne D:

Hey Holly :)
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:18pm chris :: toronto:

happy new year @Danne D and all. @Mike sin would you buy a cd over the vinyl? not me. i don't buy cds anymore at all. when i see them at the retail level i can't believe peeps are interested in them at all.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:20pm Danne D:

Happy New Year, Chris!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:21pm Danne D:

CDs are the best for my long commute to be honest - but I'm also a dinosaur.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:21pm efd:

hi everyone... fell WAY behind on the comments during the luxury ticket bubble bath but will try to catch up!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:21pm Danne D:

In other news, there's a new scout cookie. Why they would name it after a 1982 movie with the following plot I do not know: "Savannah is a wealthy girl who runs away from home and meets two escaped ex-convicts, Boots and Alvie. The two criminals realize who Savannah is, and that a large reward is offered for her, so they try to return the her to her parents. When Savannah's parents respond by charging Boots and Alvie with kidnapping, the ex-cons go back into hiding with the girl."

  Wed. 1/4/12 11:24pm Mike sin:

I buy which ever format provides the best sound quality. On a high-end level, both CD and vinyl formats have their pros and cons. Run any size MP3 wide open through high performance three-way speakers, however, and even the most old, drumming damaged ears will hear the vast limitations.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:24pm Living Doll:

There is a Frampton school of cinematic makeup, and Peter won an Oscar. Doubt it's the same guy. But Sissy Spacek did makeup for Phantom of the Paradise
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:25pm Holly in NC:

??? If you're talking about a girl scout cookie. Juliette Low founded the GS in Savannah Georgia...
once a GS, always a GS!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:26pm Danne D:

Frampton basically owned the year 1976.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:27pm Holly in NC:

@Holly, that's true but I mean the whole kidnapping movie thing is kinda looming there ya know.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:28pm Danne D:

Not enough light-hearted movies these days about people facing 40 year prison terms..
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:29pm Holly in NC:

Back to Hot Knives! Now that we've all ordered the cd, we can in good conscious dl a copy of the 1976 7in here:
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:29pm Mike sin:

CDs *are* a shrinking market, but they still currently compose more than 75% the profit generated in the market. Vinyl = 1%. IMHO, the slow death of CDs will outlast the vinyl "resurgence."
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:30pm Holly in NC:

conscience. sorry.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:31pm miss cheri:

evan,,julie & danne,, i just can't stay away,, the funk is pulling me back in,,,
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:32pm Yancy Grady:

Hey efd,

Not to get too obsessive but I think the Real Estate album is called Days
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:32pm Droll:

CD or MP3, it'll still be mastered with wall-to-wall limiting. They cannot master LPs nearly as loud so the dynamics are better, but they can't get the channel separation of digital... It's your choice, it's all a reproduction.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:32pm Danne D:

Whoa FiveAsh is in the moto-gators? cool :)
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:34pm efd:

@Yancy Grady, you are correct! Fixing the playlist now, thanks for the heads-up.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:37pm yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Gap Dream sounds RealAudio good
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:37pm yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Gap Dream sounds RealAudio good
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:37pm Danne D:

EFD made that mistake on purpose just to test his commenters :)
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:37pm Mike sin:

"CD or MP3, it'll still be mastered with wall-to-wall limiting."

That is driven by the ears/wants of the consumer and the hands of the mastering engineer -- that's not inherent in the format.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:37pm Joe D/:

in Fiveash related news, his band The Piggies will be opening for the Gories at Maxwells
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:38pm Stevel:

Please continue with the excellent recording geekery.

efd made the mistake so we would not think him to be perfect.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:39pm chris :: toronto:

My ears of crystal are used to crappy CD sound, but my pockets like the value of vinyl
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:39pm miss cheri:

evan,,thnx for another great funky show,, see you next week!! bye efd,,julie & danne
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:40pm chris :: toronto:

anyone seen the Guided by Voices "Chocolate Boy" 7"? it's thicker than a fisher-price record, and it's brown. can't buy that on a cd.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:41pm Ike:

Love that Gap Dream.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:41pm glenn:

i don't know, i think 30$ for an album is ridiculous, i don't care if it's vinyl or c.d.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:41pm Julie:

one little spot on a cd it won't play, vinyl can survive frisbee like activity
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:42pm Julie:

I got a record store day 10" white marble Kate Bush record. I thought it was cool.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:42pm Stevel:

Whence commeth Lost Tribe? Neat!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:42pm Droll:

@Mike, I completely agree it's the fashionable sound of "Now" (just like filter sweep). Vinyl is an end run around the Loudness Wars because they can't make it loud. The secret to loud is soft.
That said, most music is mixed for compression driver earbuds, so it's all the same.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:42pm chris :: toronto:

@glenn I have paid $30 for a cd. I've paid much more for cds. I'll never get it back. with vinyl, you take care of it, you can always re-sell.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:46pm glenn:

in almost 40 years of collecting records, i've probably traded in maybe 10 of them, and i never got more than a quarter of their value back, no matter what shape they were in.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:46pm Stevel:

I dearly love my b/w vinyl LP of The Stranglers/Black and White.
Resale is a good point. CDs have none. Still, my music is decidedly digital given my opportunities to enjoy. (Work, car, late night radio via computer, that kind of stuff.)
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:47pm miss cheri:

evan & julie,,you're through commenting with me?
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:47pm Dave B:

and its REALLY hard to clean your stash on those puny little CD booklets...
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:47pm Mike sin:

@Glenn -- therein lies the rub. Vinyl comps and whatnot for a small niche market are priced that high because the label knows that's what the dedicated folks who are buying these will pay. The idea of expanding the market is dead. Just charge as much as possible to your tried and true "junkies," as it were, and call it a day.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:47pm glenn:

not to mention all the cassettes and open reel tapes.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:49pm Holly in NC:

I made shit ton of $ selling a Sonic Youth 7in that came with an issue of Forced Exposure. Only success story. Plus I would never sell anything I like!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:49pm Stevel:

Dave B FTW
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:50pm Danne D:

bye cheri
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:50pm Rickwaukee:

I wish they'd bring back the long box
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:50pm glenn:

holly nailed it. i scout the used bins, and don't find very much, because people keep the good stuff, for the most part.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:51pm Julie:

UGH the horror of the long box
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:53pm 12539:

EFD, from my quiet perch I say, Another week well done.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:53pm Dave B:

the... horror...

the... horror...
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:53pm Julie:

"good stuff" Is extremely relative
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:54pm Dave B:

K. NOW I'm out! see ya!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:54pm glenn:

hmmmm. the long box is an unfamiliar term to me.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:54pm Droll:

In the grand scheme of being a musician, the biggest threat is recorded music itself, not the format. How do you compete with a free version of yourself?
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:55pm miss cheri:

efd,,julie & danne i love ya all
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:55pm Mike Sin:

Evan -- As usual, I had a great time listening!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:55pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show, Evan! Until next week everyone :)
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:56pm glenn:

blow people away playing in bars, and hope they're drunk enough to buy stuff from the merch booth, rather than going home and downloading it.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:56pm yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Israel,Earth,Milky Way):

Efd,that's a great set. Perfect wake up music for those who woke up at 06:10 at the other side of the world
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:57pm Holly in NC:

Thank you, Evan!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:57pm Yancy Grady:


Killed it. As usual. Good night and great show
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:57pm Ike:

Long boxes were insane and wasteful, yet thinking of them makes me nostalgic.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:57pm efd:

Thanks for listening everyone! Glad you were all talking amongst yourselves while I was otherwise occupied. :) See you next week!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:58pm Rickwaukee:

efd = occupieder
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:58pm Julie:

@Ike I have one piece of one I saved because it had a different photo on it
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:59pm Stevel:

Oh thank GOD I put on my head phones! This is great.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:59pm Julie:

thanks EFD!
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:59pm T-Zero:

@glenn: Nice to know I'm not the only one who didn't know what a longbox is/was.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:59pm chris :: toronto:

@Holly in NC thanks for Hot Knives tip
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:59pm Holly in NC:

There is so much "Long Train" (Sisters of Mercy) going on here I can't stand it! :-) Love The Soft Moon.
  Thu. 1/5/12 12:00am chris :: toronto:

  Thu. 1/5/12 12:01am Holly in NC:
