Hey, Gary! Great mythic opening tonight

@hyde: have you seen bubba-ho-tep with Bruce Campbell? At one moment a runaway mummy writes in hieroglyphs on the bathroom door
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Gary:

Howdy, Doca!
Avatar 7:10pm hyde:

@doca hah, no I haven't. I should remedy that, I'm a fan of the director's Phantasm flicks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Gary:

Phantasm! I remember that movie. I saw that when I was in high school, I think.
Avatar 7:16pm hyde:

I saw Phantasm for the first time as one of the last movies at a 24 hour sci-fi movie marathon. It was well-placed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Gary:

That sounds like an awesome 24 hours, Hyde
  7:19pm Jill B.:

Phantasm was made in 1979. So, Gary, you would have been in your last or next to last year in high school. Where do you think you say the film?
Avatar 7:20pm hyde:

on the 10th anniversary of the sci fi marathon at the old Orson Welles in Cambridge they made it *36* hours. That was a death march, but I made it to the end, dammit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Gary:

In Hollister, probably with Edmund and Flex. I can't remember if Kelley came or not.
  7:20pm doca:

Mom's here, @Gary eheh

You guys ready for some Oum Kalsoum?

@Gary always!

Well, I got a job for a day's worth of bookkeeping next week. As I mentioned earlier, I'm going to City Hall tomorrow morning to file a request for a marriage certificate, so we can do the ceremony Friday. I'm not nervous at all!

There's still a place on Atlantic Ave near Bond on the southside of the street that carries good Arab music.

congrats from here too, ngh!

Whoa, that's awesome all around, NGH ... congratulations!

And thanks for the URL, Hyde!
  7:40pm Jill B.:

Congratulations NGH! You're not nervous??????? Wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Gary:

Whoops! I can't believe I just did that. Sorry, everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm northguineahills:

Well, we've been engaged for a few years. I wanted to save money for a nice wedding, but due to only subcontracting jobs the last few years that last only 6 months, that hasn't happened. my fiancee got her two week notice yesterday, so she has 24 days to find another visa option. this wasn't the way we wanted to do it, but we'll have a reception later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm northguineahills:

Yes, I'm nervous as all outdoors. We've been together for 7 years. Getting the paperwork together before her visa expires is stressful. I did get a weeks worth temp job next week. So, I have that as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm northguineahills:

To make things even more interesting, she's on her way back from DC from witnessing her friend's civil wedding, another mexi w/ a gringo. So, we only have all night to get our docs in order.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm northguineahills:

Oh, and thanks everyone, I'm a chicken w/ it's head cut off right now. Just found this out yesterday evening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Gary:

  7:52pm Jill B.:

Truly......best of luck to you both! You have surmounted quite a few hurdles
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks Jill B! I'm cleaning the pad before she gets back. This music is good cleaning music! Thanks Gary!

LOVE Yukka Shahin! Thanks Gary.

36 hours Hyde ! ! : bet everything looked SciFi after that...
Avatar 8:07pm hyde:

@Rev Rabbit it sure did. we were pretty crusty when we stumbled out into the day after that one.

RavRab and acobb! Welcome! (Is that you, Allison?)
  8:14pm Doug Schulkind:

Yay Gary!

Signing off for the evening. Great playlist Gary! Had me dancing in my chair. Off to figure out what to rustle up for dinner for my guy Hal.

I'm not at all sure how to parse this song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Gary:

You cat does, Hyde :)
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'MickeyMouse' reminded me (a bit) of some Gainsbourg novelty...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Gary:

I should say that that was NOT a typical El Masreyen Band song
Avatar 8:29pm Holly in NC:

Hi Gary & all!

Poking nose in as I run back out door..

CONGRATS @NGH!!! Seems all the love is already well in place, hopefully you leapfrog over the bureaucratic hurdles. And imho a "nice" wedding is one where you're marrying your best friend :-)
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Uncle Michael:

@NGH...*BREATHE*. And congratulations!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Gary:

Holly! And Uncle Michael!
  8:36pm acobb:

Oh yeah, it's me Allison, Gary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Gary:

Yay, Allison! (Allison is a really great poet, everyone)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm northguineahills:

@Holly: it's been an interesting year since I've only been working for free for an NGO. We were best friends, but my lack of income made things curious. This hiccup brought us back together, b/c she is my best friend. (It's been a crazy 24 hours)
  8:44pm acobb:

Oh yeah, it's me Allison, Gary! Great show, my first time on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Gary:

I'm thrilled you stopped by, A!
Avatar 8:45pm hyde:

you ever delve into any of the movies these musicians are in, Gary? I admit to knowing *nothing* about Egyptian cinema, myself.
  8:45pm acobb:

thank you, Gary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Gary:

Hyde, I've only ever seen clips here and there, not a whole movie. Oh, wait, no -- I saw one with Abdel Halim Hafez in it, and it was really great -- have been trying to find this one song he sang while in a boat ... to no avail yet ...
Avatar 9:17pm hyde:

this Abd al-Hayy Hilmi is amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Gary:

I have no idea where I got this CD, but it's an entire CD of this guy -- maybe a Radhid Music find?
Avatar 9:22pm hyde:

loved it. looks like there's a 4 cd set of his stuff out there: boomkat.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Gary:

It goes back to 1857?!?!?
Avatar 9:26pm hyde:

heh, amazing early recordings!

That's gotta be birth - death dates.
