I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

I made it! I made it to work. Why did I bother? Everybody is freaking out over just 6 measly powdery inches, so nobody else is here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm common:

YES. yes.

And now, here's Bryce. Did ya bring the ice?

snow is now considered terrorism
Avatar 12:26pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

star-clicker is gonna get infected now.
Avatar 12:27pm Chris from DC:

Clicky finger finally has feeling again after going out to clean off the car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Ike:

ROTFL, DCE, that's about right.
Avatar 12:30pm Bryce:

hey, sorry for the delay. on my way out the door, i slipped on and landed flat on my back on an outdoor metal staircase. can barely move.
Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:30pm fred:

Good morning Bryce. The few people who showed up at the office seem to have left, but it looks like I'll stay a little more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm DCE:

Jesus, Bryce! someone get that guy some medical attention. What a trooper!
  12:33pm Bryce's Future Self:

Sorry I'm late today. I was in court all morning suing my staircase maker.
Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:33pm fred:

If you put it loud enough, I think some of Karkowski's music can act as a massage.
Avatar 12:34pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Goddammit Bryce we mummified you in bubble-wrap for a REASON.
Avatar 12:34pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Please regenerate swiftly.
Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 12:35pm Sem Chumbo:

HIya, Bryce and everyone. Jeez, slip and fall. Any lawyers you can call?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Ike:

I'm guessing Bryce is allergic to lawyers, and can re-grow limbs like a starfish. If not, maybe Ken still has a stash of dog tranquilizers to be raided?
Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 12:40pm Sem Chumbo:

Animal tranks? Down, Spot, down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm common:

that sucks, bryce. i once fell on ice after back surgery. owie.
Avatar 12:43pm Bryce:

Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:44pm BDR:

Take the headphones off your ears, apply them directly to lower lumbar, krank up the Karkowski, you'll be better by three.
Avatar 12:45pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Seriously. There's probably something to be said for Karkowski + subwoofer as physical therapy...
  12:46pm Annoying Infomercial Guy:

Teeter Hang Ups - http://www.teetertv.com - has just the thing to cure back problems.
Avatar 12:56pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

It's a bastard of a way to get a Karkowski special, to say the least...
Avatar 12:56pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Love the sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm estimo:

happy new one, bryce!
Avatar 12:56pm Bryce:

i just passed a gall stone!
  12:57pm bill:

Hey is this that new Silence record?
Avatar 12:58pm Bryce:

i know, rev, it's so sad. there's a giant hole in the hearts of a lot of very talented people right now.
Avatar 12:59pm Bryce:

timo!! :) how's everything?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm George of Troy:

Happy New Year Bryce! Hope your back recovers. Thanks for playing more Karkowski. He left us with quite a body of work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm estimo:

all good in the hood. went to st. petersburg lately, visited experimental sound gallery. nice place and strange sound!
Avatar 1:08pm Bryce:

hi, george! hard to know what to play — pretty much impossible to get a feel for his output when you can only fit a couple things into 3 hours....

timo, that's great. don't have much of a feel for what's going on there these days, but things seem like they're probably just right for lots of creativity right now.
Avatar 1:13pm Chris from DC:

Great duo here. This is amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Ike:

I didn't like St. Petersburg much in 1995 or 1996, it seemed really unfriendly and the food was dreadful, but the galleries and museums were pretty amazing, w/short, stern grandmas staffing everything, even the most experimental art.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm estimo:

the food part is still true, at least our lucky guesses weren't good. the art is there, but quite hidden. a lot of commerce happening everywhere.
  1:23pm Ken of Brooklyn:

PHENOMENAL survey so far, thanks a million Bryce!! WOW, especially this colab with Daniel Menche, breathtaking!
Avatar 1:25pm Bryce:

hey, ken! i know, right? it develops so continuously & beautifully over the course of the thing. they just performed it straight to tape.

"noise music"....
Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:26pm fred:

Again, Bryce plays a great hour-long track, and I'm glued to my desk when I could/should leave work. And, again, Daniel Menche is involved
Avatar 1:26pm Bryce:

Avatar 1:28pm steve:

DAMN what a facemelter this one has been
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm DCE:

wow, there's a weird drone sound going on in the office right now--thought it was part of the piece until i accidentally turned down the player. works very well together, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Ike:

I've heard that food from the former satellite states, like Uzbekistan, is the hot thing w/Russians now, but I don't know if there are any of those in St. P. They're popular in Russians parts of Brooklyn. There's a really good Kyrgyz restaurant in Bath Beach, Bklyn.
  1:31pm Ken of Brooklyn:

It's a masterpiece!
Avatar 1:32pm Eyepatch Fox:

This has been the most awesome soundtrack to trying to make crepes in the midst of having a migraine while looking out the window at a sterile snowbound day, ever.
Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 1:35pm Sem Chumbo:

Knew some of Menche's work but this stuff is opening my 3rd musical eye. Thanks.
Avatar 1:40pm Bryce:

fox! where which way you been go gone at?
Avatar 1:50pm Chris from DC:

Thanks Bryce, this is mind blowing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm braveness23:

B23 here. This song reminds me that I think I have a quasar in my basement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm braveness23:

Hello Bryce. Hello WMFU friends
Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:56pm fred:

WOW! That was very well worth lingering at work. Thanks Bryce. I'm running away before the next track catches me
Avatar 1:57pm Eyepatch Fox:

Greetings, Bryce! I've spent the month of December mostly hiding from familial obligations with the natural camoflage of being broke! :D Hooray!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Ike:

That piece put a quasar in everyone's basements.
Avatar 2:07pm dk:

i didn't know anything about Karkowski until my twitter feed went kinda nuts eulogizing him a few weeks ago. now i totally know why. wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Ike:

This one is very very quiet so far. Very quiet. (We're hunting rabbits?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm rsj:

dead air check
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Ike:

Turned it way up, now like it a lot, reminds me of incoming hurricane winds into a microphone on a beach....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm DCE:

sure wish I had some bigger speakers
Avatar 2:12pm Bryce:

very very low-pitched
  2:13pm joe voltage:

Hey Bryce. Hope you're ok. Shovelled early this morning then passed out. Last time i took a dive was like 18 years ago. Running in jenko jeans. Stepping on my own jeans. Depanting myself and falling on the sidewalk in Hoboken. Had huge amounts of road rash. Big open wounds that took months to heal.
Avatar 2:15pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

clearly that was the wrong time to be violently pulled away from the headphones for an hour. pew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm braveness23:

this song reminds me of my old Buick when idling at a stoplight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm braveness23:

it only makes this noise when I am idling. Or when I have a dead body in the trunk.
  2:26pm ?:

Avatar 2:30pm Chris M.:

i met kelly churko once years ago. very nice guy.
Avatar 2:31pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

This would be the aforementioned physical therapy via subwoofer piece, i reckon.
  2:32pm that diabetic guy:

I have my iPhone cranked and I can barely hear it. Someone pleas turn up the stream
Avatar 2:33pm steve:

the Wire posted this link a few days ago. noteworthy especially for the photo of ZK casually petting a huge tiger! nnnnn.org.uk...
Avatar 2:35pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

oh yay. Reveal yourself, clicky-star, I will destroy you. With luv.
Avatar 2:37pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Avatar 2:40pm Bryce:

wow, steve! wish i weren't over here.

that will be a great memorial night for zbig karkowski.
  2:45pm bill:

a noisy sawsall is a happy sawsall
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm common:

i'm diggin. great soundtrack for a film in me head.
Avatar 2:50pm steve:

i know right re: the London event. bryce or anyone else know anything about the documentary - 'Fuck You! Fucking Noise in China Now' which they'll be screening? never heard of it though i have heard a few of those Chinese artists
Avatar 2:51pm Bryce:

i don't! would love to see it though. i know he's worked with a bunch of chinese artists.
Avatar 2:51pm steve:

i love noise music video documents!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Chop Scott:

Thank you Bryce...
Avatar 2:58pm Bryce:

Avatar 2:58pm steve:
