Options Brian Turner: Playlist from May 17, 2016 Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm mariano:

Interesting thing I learned about "dude" -- as associated as it is with California, it's originally a 19th-century NYC term for urban sophisticates. That's where dude ranches got their name, since it was for people who'd never been outside of a city. Harper's even had a contest for King of the Dudes in the 1880s or 90s.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm JP from KC:

I don't feel like it's that uncommon, but people still seem to take notice. I think it's because I'm a (relatively) young guy at just under 30, and that term seems to be more associated with the previous generation than my own.

One time at a party I said "sparks" at the same moment as a song came on and everyone was suitably impressed that I could do that in one note and congratulated me on how Hep I am (see what I did) but actually I was in the middle of a conversation about my beverage which was a a caffeinated malt beverage also called Sparks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm JP from KC:

@JP: wonder if the goal now is to simply never enter adolescence?
Avatar 3:53pm Cecile:

I don't mind getting a seat on the bus, but what's kind of embarrassing, although I appreciate it, is when the bus driver lowers the bus down so I don't have to step up as much. I do have terrible knees, but jeez.

do fridge pickles. Also soak anything you put into the hot brine for refrigerator pickles in ice-cold salt water for about 1/2 hour. Rinse and then pour the hot brine over. Also, smaller is better in terms of crispness. HTH.

brian, I'd pickle the asparagus as raw as you can get it. You're pouring boiling brine over it and that will cook it a little. Just enough, methinks.

Grocer, I would like to buy a single asparagi (an asparagus).
Avatar 4:49pm Lopez:

I love snappy asparagus; grilled with a little salt, pepper, and olive oil is all I need people. Eugene Chadbourne & asparagus. Viva la WFMU!

I do like asparagus fried with almonds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm coelacanth:

i will try Cecile's way; but if you want to cook it - break off 2-4" tops -set them aside; break the remaining stems into 1-1.5" pieces. OR if you know that this batch is not tough or stringy, cook the bottom pieces whole... compost the very bottoms if they're very tough or very white; steam the pieces for a few minutes at most.(they change hue slightly) add the tops for the last .5-1 minute, depending on thickness.
(...of course most folks cook them whole, but the bottoms & the tops don't retain crispness at the same rate.)
(...olive or flax oil, salt or ume vinegar, GARLIC...mm-mm!)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm coelacanth:

Cecile -true too. sometimes i put the bottom sections under fatty fish in a cast iron skillet in the oven with water and a little oil.(& maybe onion, ginger, etc). it cooks them and keeps the fish away from the pan, which is easier clean-up... then i put the tops on top of the fish for the last few seconds before the fish is ready.

New Agers say it makes yer pee smelly because it's purging toxins outta you & it cures cancer & everything else...also that it will keep me from having another kidney stone - along w/ CocaCola, which dissolves *everything*...

Asparagus is ok. But give me a nice heavy brownie and a ice cold glass of milk, and they shall maketh me lie down in green pastures and crash for awhile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm coelacanth:

i think it makes our pee smell like asparagus because whatever smells like asparagus in asparagus is not broken down by body...but it is excellent for the lungs and lung ailments, at the very least.

Sad news about Guy Clark. I remember him from the Townes Van Zandt documentary.
Avatar 5:12pm Lopez:

One day two asparagus stalks, who were best friends, were walking together down the street. They stepped off the curb and a speeding car came around the corner and ran one of them over. The uninjured asparagus stalk called 911 and helped his injured friend as best he was able. The injured asparagus stalk was taken to emergency at the hospital and rushed into surgery. After a long and agonizing wait, the doctor finally appeared. He told the uninjured asparagus stalk, "I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is that your friend is going to pull through." "The bad news is that he's going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life".
