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.

hey, doca

@Bryce: just to say that I rode with my friend listening to Xenakis' Persepolis, but he could only stand fice minutes of it. Fortunately I've brought along Rob Weisberg premium, so we went through the city listening to brass bands from around the world. It was fun
Avatar 1:01pm Bryce:

hahaa :)
Avatar 1:31pm Cecile:

back from eating my yummy sammich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm common:

what did you have, cecile? I had a huge piece of homemade pizza!
Avatar 1:34pm Cecile:

I had a curried chicken panini and a brownie that just melted in my mouth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm adrian in mpls:

i want to go eat lunch, but this Alvin Curran is keeping me here at my desk!

Don't they have MREs for DJs?
Avatar 1:48pm Bryce:

they should! djs have difficulty caring for themselves
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm braveness23:

Bryce, I've got some new birds in my kitchen and I was planning on working at home today and letting them listen to your show but I got called into the office. I think they would really dig this. Do you think it's important for them to get acquainted with your live show first or could I get them started from the archive?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Carmichael:

Chana gobi for me in about an hour.
Avatar 1:50pm dc pat:

fake chick nuggets with shriracha....yuck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm DCE:

I had a faux roast beef sandwich with Swiss, pickles, and chipotle cilantro mayo. It was ok. I'd eat another.

I once found a faux deli in Wes CHester, PA I think. It was cool as hell, you could have any traditional sub you wanted but fake meat. Incredible.

Not isopropanol, I hopel
Avatar Bryce's Tooth Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Used up the remaining ham in the fridge, on tasty bread. Along with grapes, carrots, raw cauliflower, a grapefruit, yogurt and a banana. Didn't eat much for breakfast, so am already feeling hungry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm adrian in mpls:

Can someone let the dog in?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm common:

i made fake hoagies last weekend. fake meat, spinach, tomato, provolone, onions, carrots, mustard, mayo, pickles...man, i want one now!
Avatar 2:02pm βrian:

Damn neighbor dog!
  2:02pm Bryce:

i think he's trying to get out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm common:

and some alcohol sauce. oh, hello doggie!
Avatar 2:03pm βrian:

I miss Vietnamese-style seitan. Yummy gluten-spree food.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm adrian in mpls:

all this sandwich talk has me thinking about mine downstairs in the fridge - ham, cheese, avocado and mustard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm common:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm DCE:

that was quite an ambitious piece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm adrian in mpls:

alright - i just had to explain what a dickie is to my younger co-workers. it's definitely sandwich time.
Avatar 2:12pm βrian:

When worn externally, dickies make good lobster bibs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm braveness23:

so what IS a dickie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm George of Troy:

The Curran track was amazing, Bryce. Looks like I'll be tracking down that New World set.
Avatar 2:14pm βrian:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm DCE:

the pitcures become more interesting the farther down you go
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm adrian in mpls:

@Brian - It was actually through a bib conversation that I brought up dickies.
Also, Luc Ferrari - hell yes!
Avatar 2:16pm Bryce:

nice, george! :) 3 CDs of lovliness!

Ah, so you're a bibliophile!
Avatar 2:19pm Bryce:

no prob, dk! you're in luck: it's a lonnnnng one.
Avatar 2:22pm TDK60:

Curran, Ferrari-- these cuts are just right for right now, eh?
Avatar 2:22pm Bryce:

rev, did you bring enough superconducting 5-MeO-DMT ghost pepper crisps for EVERYONE?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm northguineahills:

Always a good omen to come in during Ferrari.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm common:

bryce: i knew you flew in one of those!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm DCE:

they certainly are, TDK60...maybe even better at midnight...
  2:26pm ted:

bryce, what ferrari is this? stunning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm DCE:

man, I deleted an email extra hard and it totally killed my browser
Avatar 2:27pm Bryce:

oh shit! didn't type it in, sorry! :)
Avatar 2:31pm dk:

alga marghen recently reissued ephemere I & II, which made me really happy as it had been kinda hard to find for a long time, which just seemed criminal.
Avatar 2:32pm Cheri Pi:

Nice, I leave for an hour and only 2 songs have gone by, that's the value I crave.
Avatar 2:32pm βrian:

Just ducked out for some felafel balls with chili sauce. Crunchy, fire-breathing goodness.
Avatar 2:33pm dk:

... or maybe they just found a bunch copies in the basement of some villa near milan, but whatever, everyone needs this album. it's just _perfect_.
Avatar 2:34pm TDK60:

Ferrari--did he influence psych, prog, ambient rockers? And vice versa?
Avatar 2:35pm Bryce:

cp, the roi is huge for me too
  2:36pm nic:

love this_curran 2 !!
Avatar 2:36pm Bryce:

dk, that's great to hear! the éphémères weren't even in the 10-friggin-CD box set INA GRM put out! go figure...

Great piece. Nifty show today. Cool beans.
Avatar 2:40pm steve:

big roi with today's show for sure
Avatar 2:40pm richierich:

love this!! thanks Bryce *!*
Avatar 2:42pm Bryce:

tdk60, i'd say yeah! i think you could probably say that about the psychedelic era in general, tho — lots of cultural crossover happened between (a certain vein of) academia and rock musicians. evevryone was just kind of oozing out of their genres.
  2:43pm sdfjones:

Very nice. thx Bryce, never heard this before.
  2:43pm Play Kidgen:

This Ferrari is perfectly complimenting an overcast afternoon on 22nd St. in Manhattan. Thanks Big B.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm common:

let's ooze outta our genres.
Avatar 2:45pm Bryce:

your genre is showing
  2:46pm That Bipolar Guy:

Great show Bryce! Just as ethereal as ever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm DCE:

this just keeps getting better
  2:47pm That Bipolar Guy:

I look forward to downloading it to my private Bryce collection
Avatar 2:48pm TDK60:

This one (E. II) sounds like it was recorded last month.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm adrian in mpls:

Agreed DCE! Just wonderful wonderful.
Avatar 2:50pm dk:

yeah, that's the amazing thing about this piece (and a lot of ferrari's work, i think) -- it's an under-appreciated rosetta stone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm northguineahills:

I have never been disappointed in Ferrari. Somehow, I missed Epherere II. Always great w/ a light touch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm braveness23:

I'm certainly going to add Ferrari to my regular listening.
  2:56pm doca:

do I have to say this is amazing? thanks, bryce!
Avatar 2:56pm steve:

fuck. (my one word review of today's show)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm adrian in mpls:

@dk - Okay, I'm not crazy, then. I've had the opinion for a few years that Ferrari has never truly had the reputation he deserves. I'm surprised how often friends who are into "new music"/etc. haven't heard any of his work.
Avatar 2:59pm Bryce:

hey, everyone, thanks for hanging out! have good weeks...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm braveness23:

great show, Bryce
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm adrian in mpls:

Thanks so much Bryce!
  3:00pm nic:

thx bryce
  3:00pm comme-la-mer:

one of the best playlists here so far ! my idea of a great evening. Thank you, Bryce
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm northguineahills:

Fuckin' Fantastic Bryce!
Avatar 3:00pm Cheri Pi:

Whoa, he studied piano from Messiaen?
Avatar 3:00pm dk:

the nice thing about his relative obscurity is seeing people get the "MIND. BLOWN." reaction that things like ephemere produce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm northguineahills:

Steve outdid me w/ his praise.
Avatar 3:00pm Cheri Pi:

  11:15pm max:

you know sometimes when i over-analyze what has been thrown at me recently i think and i wait and it's almost as if, i have gotten used to this feeling of disassociating from life, i don't like it i know life can promise me more, so the whole idea of me going home is still there and i try to really sync my mind into knowing or believing that well, that perhaps the wiser choice really is that type of isolated setting and climate it's the "cooler" decision in my opinion, im not trying to be stubborn i really do want this to end, is it too soon, what the hell am i missing out on really nothing im learning to ignore fucking people because in the end it will be alright keys won't be missing and doors won't be locked
