Options Brian Turner: Playlist from May 24, 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 3:35pm JP from KC:

I hate that I'm technically considered a "Millenial." As a child born in the late 80's I'm lumped into the category, but I see those years as the transitional period between generations. I know some people who were born around the same time I was that are true millenials, but there are still a lot, like me, who identify much more closely with "Generation X."
  3:36pm Cliff:

Huh, and I thought I was borderline Gen-X, being born in '78. What's the official Millenial cutoff year?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm JP from KC:

I think Millenials are those born post-1985.

For the wonky demographers amongst us, those generational categories are getting more refined (finally), into early & late halves, since there are such huge differences between early & late GenX data, etc... As for what the years are anymore, no idea...

Wikipedia says it's early 80s to 2000. Gen X is early 60s to early 80s.

@Michael 98145: That's a good indicator. on a related note, As someone who knows what a 45 adapter is, I think I should be exempt from the "Millenial" category. I hereby declare myself a Gen X outlier.

  3:50pm Lyle:

William Burroughs, there was a weirdo. I was more fond of his brother, Edgar Rice Burroughs and his wonderful Tarzan books. Of course, I was a brief drinking partner of Johnny Weismuller. This was in his telephone pole climbing period of some embarrassment back in, what? The late 50's? I recall I was playing soprano trombone with Xavier Cugat at that time, and I spent most of MY time playing nanny to a very immature Charro, who was married to Xavier and was so completely bored with his orchestra and his artwork that she was about to break free and enjoy her own brand of hoochie-coochie success. Weismuller on the other hand was downward spiraling fast. I coaxed him off many a pole on that tour as he followed us from city to city, often taunting Xavier from the wings. They were not friends. Eventually, Johhny fell froma pole in Elk Horn, Wisconsin and cracked his coccyx. Very painful indeed. Cugat laughed as they loaded Johnny in the ambulance, and that was the last we saw of him. I left Cugat to briefly join Charro's band. but that didn't last long. Her folky brand of acoustic music didn't much need my trombone stylings. I would soon find better fortunes with John Gary and his wonderful, if poorly appreciated, small orchestra. I sometimes can still hear him sing Yellow Bird if I shut my eyes tightly enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm JP from KC:

Thanks, cliff. I presume my blood-signing documents, instructions on the secret knock and location of the clubhouse, and my complimentary football phone will arrive via parcel.

Charro? Any relation to Charo? Did she roll her r's even more emphatically?
  3:53pm Kevin:

Is that mendrugo record out? I cant find any mention of it on the net
Avatar 3:58pm Cecile:

I think a lot of it has to do with where you grow up, birth order, parents background. In some ways, I'm a Traditionalist, and the calendar says I'm a Baby Boomer, but I probably relate most to Gen Xers (I was born in 1961).

The generation thing is just about being old enough to replace yourself. There's the age at which nature says you're ready and the time when most of your friends seem to be proceeding.
Realistically it's between about 18 to 35. You can do it earlier or later but that's the optimal window. Nature's done with you after that.

The best episode of You Can't Do That On Television was when they were taken over by the Soviets.

I'm more of a Beavis & Butthead fan. Was rewatching some of their music vid commentaries, there's a great one where they're watching a vintage Sabbath clip doing Iron Man. Since it was in the 90s, Beavis asks: "Are these guys from Seattle?" and Butthead answers "No assmunch, they're American!" Also, for the Clash "Should I Stay" live video, they come to the conclusion that Mick Jones is Seinfeld, which, to be fair, he does in that clip.

i still have my swatch, for sentimental reasons. i only wore a watch for a few years to try to make a particular woman happy...but it is by far one of the coolest looking watches. simple, white hands, black body,black face, no numbers and some kind of golden ratio spiral on the face. cool.

Cliff, have you noticed how many full page ads for watches as big as your head are in all the "aspirational",(expensive)magazines?
It's really funny!

Carmichael, i too got some great shots with a 110. it had a telephoto lens, but it was no good for anything closer than about 8'. good for portraits of ornamental trees though.

...being Nov63 - the 'Boomers' was the demographic of a Boom in BirthRates that reportedly extended into early '64 - yet the Icons of GenX were born mid-1960s - so I always felt on the Cusp of Boomers & Xers. Gratified if I'm well in as a GenXer, really...But otherwise - an in-betweener on the *other* side of Xers...
Buuut : As an Astrology Enthusiast...the positions of the slower Outer Planets are often correlated to differentiating Age Groups. (For example - when I was born - a Conjunction - a coming together - of Uranus & Pluto in Virgo correlating to Revolutions in Class & Civil issues & Technical things - w/ Neptune in Scorpio...too much to get into...) The very word 'Generations' is slippery if you wanna put it under a microscope. What is a 'Generation'? 30 Years?

My stepdad was entertaining my aunt & uncle one time and talking about how it was a coincidence that his neighbor grew up in Neptune, New Jersey, just 5 miles away from where he grew up. I said, "Where was that, Uranus?" Everyone plotzed.

Someone in a seminar was saying "oh, Xers saw recession, job loss, divorce, limited career options" and I said, "so did I". Being from a Rust Belt state is like being an instant Gen Xer in a lot of ways.

Absolutely, coelacanth. Me and my siblings straddle the official Gen-X/Millenial cutoff, but we're certainly not in different "generations".

Coel, I think it's ok on a very general level, but usually this data is used to divide and conquer.

Yeah, Andrew: thankfully you can still find them on YouTube, since because of licensing issues they can't include the vids in the DVD releases. They could say the most spot-on funny things about videos.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

After some kid torched his family's house and blamed it on Beavis, their video comments would include "Liar, liar" or "Higher, higher" because they promised not to mention fire anymore.
  5:31pm Cliff:

Cecile, being a Gen-Xer from the Rust Belt is a double-whammy!
Avatar 5:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - Generation labels are obviously a vast Generalization. Don't lose the trees for the forest when it comes to Individuals. Many classic Boomers had short hair & horn rim glasses & loved Murica...yerknow whatever...On the other hand - totally identify w/ GenX career & financial stuff. The 'X' is meant to imply a forgotten or misplaced group...
This Branca is the stuff.
Avatar 5:33pm Cecile:

Actually, Douglas Coupland was just using the X because X is a variable - he didn't want to name the generation anything.
It's the same as "blank generation", Hell didn't want to say "blank generation", he wanted to say "____________ generation"
Avatar 5:33pm Cecile:

Branca is great. I saw him live once, it was so loud and powerful.
Avatar 5:34pm Cecile:

RevRab, the silent majority had a lot of Boomers in it!
Avatar 5:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Cecile: Right. Almost the same. ...Altho' the 1st wave of original Punks were - Boomers. ('Blank Gen' the song is a reworking of a tune about the Beat Generation.) That then to RTD's point about breaking up the big labels into sub-groups - certainly the PostWar Baby Boom that went on for some time...
Avatar 5:35pm geezerette:

I'm an animation nerd,so that colors my outlook. B&W early Fleischer Popeyes are still radical and insane,also great music and muttering by Jack Mercer.
I920's Felix the Cat also great.
Youtube has some of this stuff.
Goes well with shrooms I'm sure.
Avatar 5:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@geezerette: I marvel sometimes how the 20thCent. recedes - for one thing seeing Hollywood Golden Age cartoons on TV all the time - my faves the lavish surreal ones where whole gardens or shops would come to life...stuff younger folk aren't seeing now...
  5:38pm Cliff:

I find it amusing that Andy Summers was in a band who put out a song called "Born In The '50s".
  5:39pm Cliff:

geeezerette - I actually HATE watching TV on shrooms, when the ads come on it's a real drag and they seem to go on forever
Avatar 5:39pm Cecile:

that was a big deal. I remember some slightly older co-workers being amazed I grew up in a world where the Beatles, rock 'n' roll and television already existed.

There is that line in "Blank Generation" where he says "I belong to the ____ generation"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm coelacanth:

true, Rabbit. i think because my parents, while being strict and disciplinary in some ways, gave us lots of freedom in others, i grew up fast and didn't get indoctrinated the same as many boomers. i listened to steppenwolf while my friends watched hogan's heroes...but somehow i relate to both the boomers and the Xes.

One thing already has the seed of the next. Punk was Post-Modern in many senses - which implies a precedent of Modernism (Mods). (The nascent Pistols turning the Small Faces' 'I want you to know that I love you baby' into 'hate you baby'...) Something come to Fullness becomes its' Opposite.
