Jeez. I haven't actually heard Rid of Me in a very long time. Damn. This is great.

Hi Therese! Hope all is going well for you today. =)

I never noticed how this tune could be a Kurt Weill tune.

P-90, Ha! I was also thinking how stiff he sounded even though he makes a living introducing people.

@phat: it's a Lieber and Stoler, but it's got a little of that Weimar oom-pah vibe

There was also another mega star / mega voice female artist that got completely screwed over on that Ed McMann show, I can't remember her name but she is now a judge on The Voice (I think).

".....a cruise ship verion of Jackie Wilson"
I'm writing that down for future reference
  Swag For Life Member 12:40am

Yeah, good job Lieber/Stoller!

a good p.s. hoffman performance is in the savages, among the lesser known films. good flick overall

@phat: The K. Weill feel may have been completely intentional when they wrote it; the P. Lee track definitely works it that way, good call
  Swag For Life Member 12:45am

It almost has to be intentional. It's based on a Thomas Mann story, too.

Where are you reading this?

Ohio Playaz!

@Whooda: I have loved that song SO much, ever since it was new (!), that I sat down to learn the guitar parts and wound up writing a solo guitar arrangement of the entire song, bridges, choruses, everything
Avatar 1:05am

That's funny P-90 but I am having a hard time imagining that song without a bass line. :)

Can you thumb-pick bass lines while picking melodic parts?
Avatar 1:09am

I'm not a musician but I have noticed that style done, it's pretty exciting to watch someone play that way.
Avatar 1:12am

I would like to see the bass and guitar parts for that song played on guitar simultaneously. It's missing from YT.

I thought you played, didn't you say?. Yeah, it's essentially a "Chet Atkins" thing, but it'll also get you into Fripp territory. That was the key to writing a solo arrangement of the chorus ("You're love is like/ a roller coaster BabyBaby/ I want to ride') my version was like a Fripp/Philip Glass ostinato w/a bass line built in
Thought you were a guitar guy, that's why i mentioned

@Droll, and no, the bass parts I came up with suggested, not dupicated, the bass guitar parts on the record

Tonight is one of those winter rarities: it's colder in Dallas than it is in Jersey City.
Avatar 1:23am

P-90 I got a plastic guitar for Christmas when I was about five, I chose it for myself only to be browbeaten by my parents for my choice. The guitar wasn't my first choice but the best thing left. ha ha. I did write a song on it, played it for my sister in my underwear and promptly was laughed at. :( crushing my musical aspiration in a flaming nosedive. Too early for cock sock toddler punk I guess.
Avatar 1:24am

And by colder I mean actual outside temperature, not how women should be treated.

Funny, should be no surprise @Whooda hears that as a Funk track where the bass is indispensible element, he's right, but for me it was all about the rhythm guitar part. Frusciante was endlessly fascinated by it too, that's how the Peppers wound up recording it
Avatar 1:25am

All the talk of the game too cold to play, yet at kick off NJ was warmer than both, WA and CO.

@Whoo: I was gonna say, you were ahead of your time w/that underwear wardrobe thing!
Avatar 1:28am

I would think if there was a game too cold to play that it would have been the Bengals @ Browns game I attended in 2008. The actual temp was -2 and the wind chill was -38. It was a rare sunny winter day in The Cleve.

Yeah, how 'bout that? there were like two weeks of news media "Super Bowl Snowmageddon" stories, then it warmed up just in time for the game.
Avatar 1:29am

@P-90 Yes, I really put myself out there by wearing only tidy whitees. Our family NEVER walked around the house in underwear. Oh well, that prepared me for a life of rejection as a visual artist.

How much dietary masochism are you going to endure before you come back to red meat and heavy carbs like a normal savage animal amEdeo?
Avatar 2:00am

Avatar 2:01am

I think it unfair to call it "dietary masochism" when ones very survival depends on it.
Avatar 2:04am

YEAH! Thanks for standing up for my inability to digest wheat! Please don't poison me with that, secret villains.
Avatar 2:05am

We suject our bodies to such brutal abuse besides diet: noise and air pollution, enourmous stress from work, home, social obligations, drink and drugs of all flavors of posion. So, depriving one in the name of health seems a little hypocritical to me, but I understand not wanting to kill another animal, which again is against every form of evolution and survival by nature.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06am

Yeah -- tell that to the lions!
Avatar 2:08am

I mean to say eating other animals is normal as any lion will attest.

@Whooda: Slow down there, pardner, its not about animals at all, he just can't digest wheat, it'll make him sick.. The ability to digest ground-up grains is a recent adaptation, and some folks don't have all the genes for it, so chillax.

You wouldn't chastise someone for eating eggs if they made him break out in hives and vomit violently, would you? Some people can't digest a protein in wheat called gluten, same thing.
They've even got a special pizza at Two Boots named after him, the "amEchovy", that 's made with gluten-free crust. Try it some time
Avatar 2:17am

I'm not emotionally invested in this, just having a discussion. When I made the first comment I didn't realize amEdeo was allergic. I assumed it was a choice. Was also thinking amEdeo is a vegetarian.
I don't need to eat gluten free. I make my own pizza crusts and I use extra gluten. You can buy gluten in a box. It improves the flavor of aged dough.

i love this show! been meaning to say that for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19am

Thank you, PG!

@pg: hahaha, perfect timing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22am

I have a gluten-intolerant cousin. Yes, it's a thing, something I don't remember hearing about so much in the past as recently, within the past decade or so. I just checked out the Wiki page on Coeliac Disease to learn more. Better screening today, so that even asymptomatic subjects can be diagnosed. I was thinking it was possibly related to crappy Western diet/food supply.

@pg: Oh, me too, me too. =)
Avatar 2:26am

I have had a rash on my forhead the last six months or so and convinced myself it was gluten. I stopped with the bread and beer etc,..no difference. Then I decided it must be dairy, again with the diet exclusion. Nope, not dairy either. Don't know what it is.

@Fuzzy: it wasn't until very recently in the history of our species that we started processing grain for food. So it's actually grains that are arguably unnatural stressors on
Wait--you say you have a rash and you thought it might be from a gluten sensitivity?
So: you've heard about this?
Avatar 2:31am

@Fuzzy Yes, when I convinced myself that I was gluten-intolerant I did that research too an learned a lot. Especially sad for kids that are intolerant but not diagnosed. It can cause many other ill effects in development.

Grains are the most basic of human diet since prehistory. Our teeth used to be worn flat (like a horse's teeth) because of our predominately grain diet as shown in the fossil record.
Avatar 2:34am

@Whooda: Sounds like you're allergic to your skin. You should probably remove it to avoid further complications.
Avatar 2:36am

These songs are certainly easy to digest...and DELICIOUS too.

Thanks BGZ but I have climbed out of my skin and jumped out of my skin too...but no luck.

Actually, grains hve only been used by H. sapiens for food for about 25,000, years, the merest blink of an eye.
I was going to say to Fuzzy that grains themselves can be seen as part of the "crappy Western diet/food supply " he referred to....
So lay off poor amEdeo, he's never hurt any body in his life, let the little feller be

Besides, we NEED him to play tunes 'n' beats 'n' shit for us on Monday mornings. Don't fuck things up for everyone. Remember your Golden Rule, etc...
Avatar 2:39am

You misunderstand me P-90, I never meant any disrespect to anyone about anything. Why do you believe humans only discovered grains 25,000 years ago? What do you think they ate when no meat was available?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39am

I was thinking about the dreadful factory-farmed food, HFCS, overuse of antibiotics...(cue Debbie Downer Sad Trombone)
Avatar 2:41am

No doubt that processed foods, preservatives, exotic spices and additives are reeking havoc with our metabolism.
Avatar 2:43am

I believe in spiritual powers and our lack of respect for the animals we do eat may have esoteric powers over us. Ancient cultures would pray over a kill, thank God and ask forgiveness for the taking of that life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44am

Well, I like exotic spices...
Avatar 2:45am

DJ X-Ray Jones has a GREAT idea. In order to eat meat you have to have a 'meat' certificate. To maintain your certificate you must work in a slaughter house once a year. If you can't handle the slaughter...NO MEAT FOR YOU.
Avatar 2:46am

I wonder if the makers of Rick Springfield music videos expected the world to have ended by now. Because we're only two years away from when the "Human Touch" video takes place.
Avatar 2:47am

Why does amEdeo sound like he should be asking for ransom?
Avatar 2:47am

Humanity knows nothing at all. There is no intrinsic value in anything and every action is a futile meaningless effort.
Eat what grows.

Collection, cultivation, processing, and storage of grains like wheat and rye only began with the advent of sedentism, which just means settling down in stationary communities and abandoning the hunter/gatherer lifeways. That's a very recent thing: cities, towns, plowing fields, diverting water for irrigation, storing large amounts of food in silos, pyramids, etc.
And with that came your ruling classes, oppression, domination, those who bullied their way to control of the food stores (the 1%) telling everyone else what to do (the 99%)...
Avatar 2:48am

Goodbye horses, amEdeo.
Avatar 2:49am

Hunter / gatherer means meat and grains and berries. These things were consumed before agriculture was established. Grains were the predominate food as hunting was difficult without metal.

The witches fight in a pool???

No, hold on, grains can only be eaten when they are processed. Technologies like grinding, baking, the aforementioned planting/irrigation, etc. are necessary to turn grains into a usable food source. Hunter/gatherers don't have mills, ovens, storehouses, rolling pins, and all those grain-processing things. They eat PLANTS, but all plants are not grains. Wild grains are useless to wild humans.
