...yeah - a bit of sunburn - sue me
...man - we got here one of the FMU-Js I particularly wish was a 24/7 stream of their own - which isn't too far from what archives are...

Man--glad I'm missing the heat wave up there
Avatar 10:21pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Went to Ba Xuyên today for Bahn Mi. Definitely a better local choice than Thanh Da, but still not as good as Hanco’s in Boerum Hill or Lotus in Park Slope.
  10:22pm cheri:

now this is a terrific way to cap off a sunday night, with Gaylord, faye and dave mandl!
Avatar 10:23pm Dave Mandl:

Evening, Ike, dexter, RRN63.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm steve:

hi Dave. regarding Brooklyn, aren't we the second biggest city in the US after LA? thats a lotta room.
Avatar 10:27pm JakeGould:

@steve: Counting non-hipster/non-brownstone Brooklyn, yes.
Avatar 10:27pm Dave Mandl:

@steve: There's still a lot of open space at Floyd Bennett Field.
  10:28pm cheri:

dave, I want to thank you for the great tunes tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interesting. Of course - I'm not sure anyone knows where LA begins or ends...
Avatar 10:29pm JakeGould:

I miss when Floyd Bennett Field still had some weird, still active in a minor way connection to the Coast Guard and National Guard. Was fun to sneak around old hangars there back in the 1980s.
Avatar 10:30pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: It's still a really odd place. Everything from a Sanitation Department training center to campgrounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm pacific standard simon:

The City of Los Angeles is one thing, but a lot of people regard Los Angeles as everything in Los Angeles County.
  10:32pm ?:

Good evening Dave, loving the Gurdjieff!
Avatar 10:33pm JakeGould:

@Dave: One time in the 1980s I snuck into a hangar area with a wrecked Coast Guard plane and—this is the creepy part—the hangar was filled to the brim with vintage, seemingly untouched 1970s cars. All covered with a layer of thick dust. Apparently they were used in weapons tests or something like that? Anyway, we got chased off the property by a guard who came out of a trailer dressed in a bathrobe with a baseball bat. Unless I am blocking he had a gun, but it was definitely a bathrobe. Bizarre place and bizarre to think someone had a job like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm pacific standard simon:

...and the Los Angeles Angels are from Anaheim, which is in Orange County.
Avatar 10:33pm Dave Mandl:

Evening, "?". Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm joeray:

Good evening Dave, loving the Gurdjieff!

Ah, it's you, joeray. Evening.

I didn't realize you can post anonymously.
Avatar 10:36pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: I was walking around Floyd Bennett Field taking pictures shortly after 9/11 (just by chance), and a helicopter started following me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Anonymous:

It's easy!
  10:37pm cheri:

well dave I have to take my leave now, it's been fun hanging out for a short time tonight, I hope to see you next week! night
Avatar 10:38pm JakeGould:

@DaveMandl: Yup. That kind of place. Creepy and they store “things” there but not enough to be aggressive. Like you were taking pictures, and the followed you but they didn’t arrest you but they still followed you.
Avatar 10:39pm Anne On A Mouse:

Yup, what PSS said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Ike & Ram:

Lotus in Park Slope is that good, eh @Jake@10:21? I've walked past it many times. I'll have to try it sometime. Of the ones I've tried, Ba Xuyên is 2nd only to the place at 369 Broome in Manhattan.
Avatar 10:42pm JakeGould:

@Ike: There is a Bahn Mi truck that goes around Manhattan that is quite good as well. Shows up around Varick and Hudson Street.

Avatar 10:46pm JakeGould:

Oh, and then there was the time at Floyd Bennett Field me and some friends were driving around when it was dark just to horse around and then two extremely hobo-looking guys seem to show up out of nowhere in our headlights. Very David Lynch-ian. They asked for a ride to some nearby shelter and we agreed. The guys smelled like death but were hopped up on goofballs or something because they were so twitchy we thought at any moment they’d pull out blades on us. Happily they were just smelly and mentally ill and we drove them to the shelter and that was that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm pacific standard simon:

"It's lots of fun to have you there."
  10:53pm cheri:

I enjoyed hanging out tonight dave, even if it was for a short time. thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm steve:

hmm the skips kinda work
Avatar 10:54pm JakeGould:

@steve: The skips are not that bad.
Avatar 10:54pm Dave Mandl:

@steve: Yeah, but it would have never ended. I only have another hour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm pacific standard simon:

I listened to Don Joyce's final Over The Edge program last night. It was sad, knowing what he didn't know. Apparently, the show is going to continue without him. Hard to imagine it without his voice but, then, they DO have tapes.
Avatar 10:56pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Well, he left behind a pretty huge legacy, so there's that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm pacific standard simon:

Thanks to the Internet Archive, I won't have to digitize the rest of my cassette collection of OTE.
  11:04pm PMD:

Dammit. I didn't do my 3 hour conversion from the west coast right! Missed an hour
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm pacific standard simon:

@Dave - Agreed, about the bass clarinet -- wonderful tone in the right hands. When I bought one, though, I found that my hands (or mouth) were not right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm pacific standard simon:

And GIFs! Gotta have GIFs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm pacific standard simon:

The station is a refuge of vegetarians -- no wonder it's a culinary wasteland.
  11:18pm cheri:

dave, i'm surprised that ken doesn't like cheech & chong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...as opposed to an abattoir...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm pacific standard simon:

You know I'm joking, right? Cooking vegetarian AND vegan is just as important as any other kind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& abattoir is a perfectly literal & polite term : ) ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm pacific standard simon:

I'm just always surprised by the broad overlap of free-form DJs and non-meat-eaters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm pacific standard simon:

"One rabbit stew, coming right up!"
Avatar 11:27pm Dave Mandl:

When I started here there were very few vegetarians (I was one).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm steve:

love this Rallizes track... never heard this one before
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm pacific standard simon:

Sign of the times, I guess. We're all getting older, and thinking about our health & diet more.

Hey there, coelacanth.

Yo, prehistoric one!
  11:30pm cheri:

dave I must say goodnight for real, sorry to take up too much of your time.
Avatar 11:30pm Dave Mandl:

Night, cheri. Thanks for joining us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm coelacanth:

howdy pss!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm pacific standard simon:

Don Joyce went out claiming to not regret a one of his millions of cigarettes, and I suppose I'll go thinking similarly of all the bacon I've eaten.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm pacific standard simon:

There's another instrument I love: the xylophone (or marimba?).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm pacific standard simon:

The pronunciation I find for Icelandic "Sóley" sounds sorta like "so-lay", and seems to translate to "flower" or "sunflower", which seems like an unlikely coincidence, given the meaning of the French "soleil". Loan word, maybe?
Avatar 11:50pm Dave Mandl:

Ha, that seems possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm pacific standard simon:

Language is one of the nerdiest and most interesting subjects I've found. I could kick my own ass for not thinking so at an early age.
Avatar 11:55pm HollyT:

a propos of nothing, did you (Dave, or anyone else) see that Max's Kansas City's facade was rebuilt yesterday around the corner from the old Max's (at 19th and Park I believe). Apparently they are shooting for an upcoming Scorsese tv series.
Avatar 11:56pm JakeGould:

What’s a propos?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm steve:

enjoyed the show tonight Dave, glad i got to listen
Avatar 11:57pm Dave Mandl:

No! I didn't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx DM !
Avatar 11:58pm JakeGould:

@Dave: Pretty decent fake facade if you ask me. gothamist.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm pacific standard simon:

It's a something, eh...

And that’s all she wrote! Thanks, Dave.
