Late to the party! Got hijacked by a coworker. The heartless bastard!

Oh no, hijacking bad!

FVH Allegedly it's Nico
  3:28am I should be asleep:

Allegedly Nico?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am Julie:

It is supposed to be a modeling shot from 1960
  3:44am I should be asleep:

Interesting. I can kind of see it. I'm just used to her looking so... morose. Seeing her bright, youthful, and full of life is a little disorienting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am Julie:

That's why I chose it :)
  3:48am mbro420:

  3:49am fred von helsing:

a slimmer Sandy Duncan !

I thought a perky claudia schiffer
  4:03am fred von helsing:

a less teutonic claudia schiffer :)
  4:09am pierre:

Bonjour Julie and friends !!!

aww, I missed Gainsbourg, merde.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am Julie:

Bonjour, Pierre!
  4:10am pierre:

But that's alright, i love this song. Femme Fatale !

(wait didn't Ken say that there was going to be new special comment board today?)
  4:11am I should be asleep:

Julie, that song with Serge Gainsbourg, what collection did you pull it from? Or does the station have the single?
  4:11am Georges:

Oh, Femme Fatale. Good memories…
  4:11am fred:

Salut Pierre. Are you coming to see Headwar tomorrow?
  4:12am fred von helsing:

He did. But first Ken has to get outa bed ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am Julie:

I have the mp3, it's on some box set called Gainsbourg in cinema. The original released version was by Juliette Greco, but Nico recorded it, and I THINK she was in the film (striptease)
  4:13am fred:

Nice disconnect between this song and the photo
  4:16am pierre:

@fred : maybe, I also have a friend who runs a bar, and i've planned to visit his place a long time ago, so if i can do both i'll try.
  4:16am haxx0r:

ready for the new comment board!
  4:16am I should be asleep:

Thanks, Julie.

Unfortunately, I need my sleeps. Hopefully Nico doesn't get into my head too much, but I wanna say thanks for the set while I'm at the chomputer. Nico's one of my favorites. I'd take a couple of her albums over anything Lou Reed did (I can't make that same statement about Cale).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17am Julie:

Night, I should..!
  4:17am other david:

g'morning folks

loving this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am Julie:

Morning, OD!
  4:20am mark:

Great Ayers song!!! Love the Nico bckgrnd vocals
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am Julie:

Hmm this beat reminds me of Running up That Hill, same year
  4:22am pierre:

ok, i just finish eating one of the best pain aux raisins ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27am Julie:

Im eating around the cheetos of some snack mix. I really just wanted pretzels but couldn't find any!
  4:28am pierre:

do you have pain aux raisins, in the u.s. ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am Julie:

is that raisin bread?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29am Julie:

I'm not playing this whole thing..but it deserves to be heard to be loathed
  4:30am fred von helsing:

I got some Cheez-Its from the States. Damned things are addictive and they don't even taste like cheese. Hell not even like "cheez".. jeez Louise.
  4:31am pupo:

uuuh....please play Vegas by our Icon
  4:32am meghan:

Morning all! So...... Nico's birthday?
  4:32am pierre:

@Julie : it's more like a cake (the name's misleading), check that : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pain_aux_raisins

If you've ever seen this, you'll remember. It is so good (when well done)
  4:41am other david:

There was an interesting interview with a biographer of Leonard Cohen on Irwin's show a while back - Nico was apparently "one that got away", she always preferred younger men, so poor aul Serge had no chance!
  4:42am meghan:

I know those Pierre!
  4:46am pierre:

@ meghan is it something common for breakfast in here ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am Julie:

I found a version of Vegas!
  4:51am fred von helsing:

cool show / a change of pace
Avatar 4:52am Kenzo (lastever):

Hey, it's time to try something new on this here playlist. Julie, et al, let's hope it works!
  4:52am meghan:

If you go to French bakeries... But overall not so much

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54am Julie:

Kenzo, I'm afraid!
  4:55am fred von helsing:

You say breakfast, I say mix up corn flakes and Cap'n Crunch, it's amazingly excellent
Avatar 4:55am Kenzo (lastever):

Nobody is more afraid than I. There is no turning back.
  4:56am fred von helsing:

Oh noes is it THE Kenzo ? Brace for collision !
  4:58am other david:

See you on the other side...
  4:59am HAL 9000:

Look Kenzo, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.
  4:59am Marmalade kitty:

Hi Julie & everybody! Did I miss Nico?
  4:59am HAL 9000:

Nico, Nico, give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage. But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.
Avatar 5:01am Kenzo (lastever):

All right, HAL. I'll go in through the emergency airlock.
  5:02am Dave:

Don't crush that dwarf, hand me the pliers.
  5:06am HAL 9000:

This chatboard is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07am Julie:

Hey there MK, yes you missed Nico :(
  5:09am Marmalade kitty:

not one, not two, but nine Nico songs I have missed??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11am Julie:

Archive time for you later, young lady!
  5:15am HAL 9000:

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 chatboard. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, on the 12th of January 1992. My manager was Mr. Freedman, and he taught me to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it I can sing it for you.
  5:21am other david:

Yes HAL 9000, I'd like you to sing us some Dr. Bootygrabber in your dulcet robotic tones.
Avatar 5:26am other david:

  5:29am HAL 9000:

Dave, would you settle for Rapper's Delight by the Sugarhill Gang?
Avatar 5:30am pierre:

Avatar 5:30am other david:

Yes, HAL, that would be delightful.
Avatar 5:36am fred von helsing:

  5:36am Marmalade kitty:

where's my picture??
Avatar 5:37am fred von helsing:

hey if I want to use a phony name on the chatboard (not that I would ever do that) do I hafta sign out first to suppress the image ?
Avatar 5:37am other david:

MK - you need to register for the friendship society & add your picture in the profile settings
Avatar 5:38am pierre:

Avatar 5:39am fred von helsing:

there's a new link or two at the top of the left side
Avatar 5:40am Kenzo (lastever):

Yes, Fred, you gotta sign out if you don't want your image and name to be linked.
Avatar 5:40am other david:

This song favouriting thing is a neat feature, Kenzo - most excellent work sir!

You see I go by the CODE of the doctor of the mix,
And these reasons I'll tell you why.

@ Kenzo : fantastique work ! Bravo.
