Sleep is the best caffeine ever, but when in need, well a good coffee is required. Thing is it's also kind of makes a bad cocktail with lack of sleep.
Avatar 9:28am Alessia:

Hi Guido! Hope you had a great weekend! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am Guido (Cologne):

Burning coal for heating is still more efficient than burning coal for electricity.

We had the flea market outside my door. But I was able to hold back from too much vinyl collecting. anyway I'm awaiting a bunch of DeeJay-premiums. so why bother with all that second-hand crap ... ;-)

Cool! Talk Is Cheap! Welcome back, Jason. Your show is definitely missed.

Hi everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am braveness23:

Wow, I was seriously considering not tuning in today and wallowing in The Velvet Underground and Nico instead. But I'm glad I did tune in. This set is taking me somewhere I didn't even know I needed to go.
Avatar 9:40am Alessia:

Guido flea markets are the best way to spend the weekend! We spend ours planting vegetables hoping that the music from Big Star and YLT will help them growing strong.

You are making my Sty paddies pregame drinking fucking awesome.
Thank you.
Avatar 9:44am Cheri Pi:

Is this the Blixa Bargeld band White?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am Guido (Cologne):

I must redo my balcony herb garden!
Actually geranium and rosmary survived the soft winter.
But tyme is a bit bald.
  9:44am mb:

This White sounds kinda tan but isn't it always that way?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45am braveness23:

I feel like this set list has me on a war path. If this set has anything to say about it this morning is going to end in violence. I'm already sharpening my pencils and lining them up next to my mouse pad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am Guido (Cologne):

looks like a japanese band:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50am common:

Avatar 9:50am ! I X Key !:

What does Blixa's band White's name mean? It makes me think, first of all, about how his art has been so associated with ht color black! When was White formed?! Hmm--
Avatar 9:51am pierre:

@ Guido : trim all of it, and it should grow strong, no ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51am Tom:

Wow this is so much better than In Prism.

And just like that, I'm getting my mellow on now.

Rosemary can cause seizures, & I am allergic to rosemary so bad it sent me to the hospital several times recently
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Guido (Cologne):

I'm afraid thyy need a bigger pot.
flower boxes are too narrow.
Avatar 9:53am ! I X Key !:

Also, thyme is a verb good anti-seizure treatment
Avatar 9:54am Cecile:

Avatar 9:54am ! I X Key !:

Funny members of the mint family
Avatar 9:54am pierre:

@Guido : terra-cotta pot, and a mix of ground and fertilizer should do the trick. I hope it'll grow nicely. (also, specially on balconies) wind can be a problem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am Tom:

The first Polvo comeback album sounded a little bit too Nu-metal.
Avatar 9:56am pierre:

@ Jason : super sweet to hear the FAUST bed music again
Avatar 9:56am Cecile:

I have learned to love thyme recently, and it does better in our climate than rosemary. You would think oregano and lavender would be tough here, nope. They are very delicate and never come back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56am Tom86d:

I agree with @pierre. Love the bed music.
Avatar 9:57am ! I X Key !:

! mellow with the holy herb am I (o:
Avatar 9:57am Cecile:

mint, you just can't kill. you have to plant it in a pot or it'll choke everything out.
Avatar 9:59am βrian:

My Gawd, If I were allergic to rosemary, I'd just give up and cash it in. She is my muse and reminds me of Provence. As does Thyme. Ah, the scents of summer...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59am Guido (Cologne):

@! I X Key !
It might be true, if the meals are not becoming too delicious.

thanks for the tip. I will try that out.

I was never satisfied with the aroma of my homegrown oregano.
Mint is a beast of a plant but itneeds shadow. My balcony is southside with light all day.
Mint dries out in summer hopelessly.
Avatar 10:00am βrian:

I wish I liked sage more, because it's beautiful and flourishes against all odds. Tough little bugger.
Avatar 10:00am Cheri Pi:

I have been lucky enough to have a large rosemary plant in my kitchen window all winter long. This weekend we planted Basil, lavendar, aubergine, thyme, zuccini and kohlrabi seeds. We also bought a hydroponic fish tank and this weekend I became a new parent to Yngwie Satriani, the veil-tailed beta.
Avatar 10:01am Cheri Pi:

Avatar 10:01am Cheri Pi:

Mint is for suckers. the only way to get rid of it is to move. Don't do it!
Avatar 10:01am Cecile:

Pi! I sent you a potted rhubarb plant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am braveness23:

@Cecile I went to a conference a couple weeks ago and attended a session on growing Mediterranean herbs in our climate. The Mediterranean and Ohio climates almost couldn't be more different. My rosemary, oregano and lavender survived the last two winters but this year they are dead, dead, dead.
Avatar 10:03am pierre:

I hear you with all the plant Cheri Pi, we've been doing some aubergine, pepper, tomatoes but the plenty, gerkins, zucchini… all the cool summer stuff

and regarding herb, Sage has my vote. I just love it.
Avatar 10:03am Cecile:

Sage is great, but you always have way more than you need.

Guido, we have big ol shade trees where our mint (when we have it) just flourishes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03am tim from champaign:

How is the latest Polvo album? I missed the song while getting coffee.
Avatar 10:04am Cheri Pi:

Thanks Cecile! I'm not used to these fancy heirloom varietals
Avatar 10:04am βrian:

Goodness, all this talk of herbes de Provence. I'm going to have to read some Marcel Pagnol again. Et j'ai faim !
Avatar 10:04am pierre:

@ Cecile : not false. But then it does nice flowers :)
Avatar 10:05am Cecile:

My knees are shot so I can't garden the way I did. I have to figure out how to do it. And I'm so indifferent to indoor plants, that I'm surprised that I haven't been assualted by roving gangs of ficus plants.

Pi, I understand.

Say, know any good plants to repel dogs?

the only day greener than today is 420 and you fuckers arent clebrating. Im disappoint. You should be drinking cheap lager by the gallon by now.
Avatar 10:14am Cecile:

AC, No. I was angry my favorite Irish bar cut back their menu and raised their prices 30% for St. Pat's yesterday. We still had lunch, and then went over to the Gernan bar and drank huge pints for $3/pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15am tim from champaign:

I got your cheap lager by the gallon right here, Anonymous. Discerning WFMU listeners know green beersies are for dinks.
Avatar 10:15am Cecile:

I'm in St. Paul, the 2nd largest of Irish x-pats in the country. And lots of wannabes. I look forward to dodging puke on the sidewalk going home, and also having someone pass out on me on the bus. Actually I like that because I am very mean to whoever does that and it doesn't even register with them.

Observance was yesterday for me. Drove my little truck in the city parade with a banner on it. Had a Guinness, had an Allagash Black, and then a Dutch chaser: went to see film, Tim's Vermeer.
Avatar 10:20am Cecile:

It was happy hour. It was a nice imperial pint and homebrewed beer.

I do know places where I can go to a 7 hour happy hour and get $1 beers that taste like yellow water but will get the job done.

Hell, some people started on Thursday here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21am tim from champaign:

@bibi - the midwest (except for Chicago) has the best beer prices in the nation.

Ah, Allagash Black,very nice.
Avatar 10:21am Cecile:

sbp, that sounds delightful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am tim from champaign:

My above comment was no slight on Chicago. Chicago is a very fine beer drinking city. It just costs twice as much to drink at the bars there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am Tom86d:

YEAH! DOTT! They were so good last night!
Avatar 10:23am Cecile:

But strangely enough, a lot of their restaurants are cheaper than Minneapolis

I didn't remember it was St Patrick's day. I'm going to a show tonight where there should be Guinness on tap
Avatar 10:25am Cecile:

I paid $7 for a Smithwicks in a plastic cup, and was so appalled I needed two beers at the cheap place to wash it out of my mouth. I am loyal to the place, but I'm never going there for Paddy's agqain.
Avatar 10:26am Cecile:

Common, the ones I have were lovely. My friend, who lived in Prague for years, swears they are the best in the world.
Avatar 10:27am Cecile:

that's during happy hour, though, for those restaurants.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27am tim from champaign:

Speaking of beersies... I actually permanently quit drinking on January 1st when I broke my leg. I'd been messing myself up way too much while drinking. I'll still partake in the playlist beersies which are the best kind of beersies anyway.

What in Hell's bells is a pickleback? Guess I'll google dat...

Get a bonus observance, too. A friend's annual St. Pat's party will be held a week late, next Sunday, with killer corned beef, my once-a-year dose.

An otherwise favorite local joint is up to 6 & 7 bucks for pints AND smaller servings. Owwch! Can't do it.

@Brian - yes there is! It's called Internal Bitterness Unit or IBU. Here's a good chart example: www.brewersfriend.com...
Avatar 10:34am Cecile:

Brian, there is. I can't remember the abbreviation, but I'll look it up.

Here's a genius Bloody Mary concept:

Four months from now, it will be bloody marys made with fresh brandywine tomato juice, akvavit, horseradish. Dilly beans for garnish.

She is a regular MN girl on that show, and seems like someone it would be fun to go drinking with.

I am currenly using ice cubes made of sweetened milky coffee to perk up my cold coffee.
Avatar 10:36am βrian:

I wish it were a required listing on the label, then. I grew up on English style IPAs. Love the hop, but these days things have gotten out of hand. Hop for the sake of hop makes the beer flop.
Avatar 10:37am bibi:

i wish i could make you all taste my lorraine punch, made out of mirabelle liquor. worked pretty well on sat night.
Avatar 10:37am Cecile:

Chris, great idea for a band or a love song.

Brian, it is ridiculous. I have given up all but one IPA.

bibi, also sounds lovely.

Bitterness can vary heavyly even one and the same kind of beer.

I had a pretty damn bitter IPA from Defiant last weekend. Also tried their amber lager which has great color, a nice head, and is also actually pretty bitter.

A little bitter is fine. BUt I don't want to feel like I'm drinking the contents of a vacuum cleaner bag. I'm over "beer as extreme sport."

paired with the right food, an IPA can be exactly right. My wife made this potato salad with cilantro, scallions, and red onion. The IPA went really well with that.

@Guido - SF releases do tend to be a little more expensive than most. About $5 (usd) above the average. They're totally worth it to me. Their DVDs are quite affordable though.

@Guido: Adobe has recently changed and you can now basically rent any of the Creative Suite for a monthly rate, as opposed to paying $1,800 or so for the full package.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54am tim from champaign:

@Guido - If you haven't gone down the Sublime Frequencies road, I'd highly recommend it. The LP packaging is fantastic. The "Radio ______" comps are so col. There's little to no overlap with music/sounds on other labels. Their DVDs are done verite style. The Nat Pwe and north african dvds will melt your face.
Avatar 11:55am Cecile:

Yeah, and I'm a little bummed because I bought CS6 not that long ago.

the freeform photoshop somehow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58am Guido (Cologne):

... which is a good idea and I would actually do that, in case graphic demands increase.

Thank you for theese details.
You're answering the questions i was about to ask. OK, I should go for the vinyl then. On other labels the vinyl often is diappointing information-wise, so that i often take the CD in order to have the booklet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm Guido (Cologne):

InDesign was an real advantage compared to classic QuarkXPress.
Illustrator seemed cool, just I was too much stuck with Macromedia FreeHand with my routines. Well anyway, no choice nowadays.
