The patches are really good looking, and very well-made.
Avatar 7:06pm TehBadDr:

Emily never mentioned the Podcast! Though she did do an excellent show without Kim.
  7:12pm Kate:

because they have to create their own joy

Hi @Steve, it was great meeting you too!
  7:16pm Emily:

It's cat radio.
Avatar 7:16pm kimzilla:

Some day I'll figure out how to get these pictures to upload in the right direction!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Richard S:

Getting the birds some fresh air and sunshine. And hang out with other birds.
  7:16pm Emily:

Did you know they actually have radio programs/podcasts for cats??
  7:18pm Kate:

of course.
  7:18pm Emily:

Anyone's cats going crazy at the bird noises?
Avatar 7:19pm kimzilla:

If you hate the topic of birds then you can also call Ken and Andy's pre taped show they are doing right now. 201-536-9368
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Richard S:

Hmm... Should point my speakers out the window to see what the sparrows outside do...
  7:19pm james f:

i had parakeets for a couple years. seemed like a good idea at the time
  7:19pm Emily:

@Richard: ha! Good idea...
Avatar 7:20pm kimzilla:

@ Richard, or see how many cats show up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Richard S:

Fourth floor apartment....
Avatar 7:21pm kimzilla:

@ Richard, oh.
  7:22pm Emily:

You can hear the festival mic checking in the background...
Avatar 7:22pm TehBadDr:

  7:22pm melinda:

This is cool.
  7:22pm Kate:

a 2 hour drive to air your bird. wow that's commitment.
  7:23pm Emily:

It was amazing! The bird made these noises whenever he held his hand up to it! But just him...and it tilted its head towards his hand. So cool.
  7:24pm Emily:

Thanks, Melinda!
@Kate: right?? But it's the only such park in the country.
  7:24pm mink:

who is talking over the tape guys?
  7:26pm mink:

Ahh, I see your comment now :)
This is wonderful btw, thanks :)
  7:26pm Kate:

There is a black capped chickadee outside my window now. He is listening to the bird sounds and wondering who these strangers are. . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Richard S:

Listening to songbirds like this has got to be immensely therapeutic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Cooh John:

Wonderful show. Trouble recently did a show with an artist who played an instrument with birds.
Avatar 7:27pm kimzilla:

@ Richard, well, look at the picture of this guy Tommy Chang on the message board. He said he has been doing this for 50 years and has a 40 year old son, and look how young he looks!
  7:28pm Emily:

Oh cool! I love trouble's show. I'll have to check that out.
Avatar 7:28pm kimzilla:

@Cooh John, I heard that and loved that episode. The guy was from Jersey too!
  7:29pm DEZ:

pair this with the westminster dog show episode and find one more animal to cover and you can take it to Animal Planet!!!
  7:29pm Emily:

@DEZ: yes!!!! Here we come!!!!
Avatar 7:30pm kimzilla:

@ Dez, whats next?? Cats? Horses, rodents. There has to be some interesting animal choices to pick from.
Avatar 7:30pm TehBadDr:

The House Finches and House Sparrows that have found a nook in my building chirp pretty nice. I feed them, but they are bird brains. The crows however are smart, and elusive, but like the things I leave for them.
  7:31pm Andal:

I have been having a really rough day and it was a delightful uplift listening to your adventure in the park. thank you.
  7:32pm Andal:

I live in NC and have fallen absolutely in love with Carolina wrens. Tiny, curious, with the strongest pipes in the forest.
Avatar 7:33pm kimzilla:

@Andal, I am glad this lifted your spirits. It only gets better with the Burma festival.
  7:33pm Kate:

I love Carolina wrens! Beautiful song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm chris:

Burmese food is indeed unique and wonderful... there's this fermented tea salad that is just outstanding.
  7:34pm Andal:

Thank you @kimzilla :) looking forward to that too.
  7:34pm Kate:

fermented tea salad? how liquid is that?
  7:35pm Andal:

OMG I just got a burmese cook book and am copying a recipe right now. synchronicity! roasted eggplant salad with fried shallots...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm chris:

think tea leaves get fermented like cabbage (kimchi)
  7:35pm Andal:

@Kate, the tea leaves are fermented. the salad is not liquid. i have only read about it.
  7:35pm Marc15:

What's Rangoon To You is Grafton To Me
  7:36pm andrewb:

I've adopted a continuing family of carolina wrens in my workshop here in bethesda. They're deft flyers also.
  7:36pm james f:

great job adventuring into the crowd and coming out strong!
Avatar 7:37pm TehBadDr:

ZOMG! The girls are upside down!
  7:37pm melinda:

I made a Burmese fish curry once, it was good.
Avatar 7:38pm kimzilla:

@TehBadDr, no fixing it now. Its for the handstanding audience.
  7:38pm Emily:

It was so good! I was amazed how lovely it was for breakfast.
  7:39pm Andal:

@andrewb, that is so sweet. the can fly almost completely vertically!
  7:39pm Listener Robert:

You ought to play as your talkover music for this show "Burmese Bear", a satiric song about Burma that Irwin used to play a lot. In fact he used some of it as bed music.
Avatar 7:39pm TehBadDr:

Was there crunchy dried tiny shrimp in it?
  7:40pm Kate:

Penguins don't come from next door, they come from the Antarctica. Burma! why did you say Burma? I panicked.
Avatar 7:40pm kimzilla:

@Listener Robert, oh wow, and I just saw irwin too. Actually the outro song was curated by the great Rob Weisberg.
  7:41pm Emily:

I couldn't even tell what was in it for the most part! It was delicious though. They just handed us these GIANT bowls of curry fish noodles.
  7:41pm Emily:

@Kate hahah! I almost used that as our intro! But it was deemed too silly.
  7:41pm Listener Robert:

Burma's politics was a combination of repression, then very ostentatiously counteracting their own oppression, and, partly as a result, sheer craziness. Like Woody Allen as dictator in that movie, but for real.
  7:41pm Andal:

tofu made from chickpeas!!! shan tofu. i want to make it.
Avatar 7:42pm cosmic matrix:

OMG this is making me sooooo hungry
  7:42pm Andal:

South Asia has the world's most advanced snack culture. fight me!
  7:42pm Emily:

@Andal-I am so intrigued by all this! I'm totally sold on Burmese food. Time for some culinary experimenting.
Avatar 7:43pm cosmic matrix:

its soooo goood. fermented tea leaf salad!
Avatar 7:43pm cosmic matrix:

for example that is
  7:43pm Andal:

@Emily, the book I got is Burma Rivers of Flavor by Naomi Duguid. very accessible and beautiful book.
Avatar 7:44pm kimzilla:

@TehBadDr, no shrimp, just these long crunch fish skins, and then you add cilantro and lime and chilies.
Avatar 7:44pm cosmic matrix:

there used to be a burmese restaurant in the east village in the early 90's...taste of burma? i don't remember but it was great.
  7:44pm Emily:

@Cosmic-that sounds so interesting--I definitely wanna check that tea salad out.
@Andal-ooh, thank you! I'm gonna look into getting that.
  7:45pm Listener Robert:

It was like, "Do what we say! No, wait, be free! We will force you to be free!" At least that's what I gathered from it. You can't gather much of it from "Burmese Bear", though, because it was couched in language that would pass censorship, even in xlation.
Avatar 7:46pm kimzilla:

@Cosmic Matrix, that's where Emily and I have a difference of opinion, she is much more adventurous with the weird healthy stuff. Like fermented peas for example, (I made that up)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Fermented Peas = Good name for a band!
Avatar 7:47pm kimzilla:

"Oy were fermented peas!" and then they spit them all over the audience!
  7:48pm Emily:

@Robert: truly fascinating. I feel like I barely scratched the surface of what's going on there in my research. I gotta read more about it.
  7:48pm Emily:

That sound was a little old person shuffling in front of us as we walked.
  7:48pm Andal:

@Emily, what sold me is, instead of saying "go buy these staples at at an ethnic store," it tells you how to make them. hope you enjoy :)
  7:49pm Emily:

@Andal: ooh yes! I love that.
  7:49pm DEZ:

Righteous jam in the background!!!
  7:49pm Emily:

It was madness. Everyone was talking to us at once. It was great.
  7:49pm melinda:

Does Emily like natto? I hear it's gross for people not raised eating it, but it's also a source of an important nutrient, maybe vitamin K.
  7:50pm Emily:

I love natto! I think it tastes kind of earthy and coffee-like.
  7:50pm Emily:

It's weird though.
  7:50pm andrewb:

@andal . I tried to shoo them out at first and when I tried to toss a half built nest i found a little one inside the rest is history.
Avatar 7:51pm cosmic matrix:

@Emily, what a magical morning! amazing. cool people. tried natto once and didn't like it. wow, great music.
Avatar 7:51pm Will from Seattle:

Burmese music is pretty cool, here's a cool album of it
  7:51pm melinda:

@Emily that does sound good.
Avatar 7:52pm TehBadDr:

I want to go to the water festival!
Avatar 7:53pm cosmic matrix:

me too!

"Guitars Of The Golden Triangle: Folk And Pop Music Of Myanmar (Burma) Vol. 2" on Sublime Frequencies is a really awesome comp

Thanks Will'n'Steve
Avatar 7:55pm TehBadDr:

Well, that was some excellent material again Kim and Emily! Thank you!
Avatar 7:55pm cosmic matrix:

No it's because you guys are amazing!
  7:55pm Andal:

@andrewb, good man. i had a nest in my shed a few years ago.
  7:57pm Andal:

i hear y'all typing on that new loud keyboard, clicky clicky
  7:57pm Kate:

@ Andal: Burma Rivers of Flavor: punchy-crunchy ginger salad, I am totally getting this cookbook. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Richard S:

See you next week!
  7:58pm melinda:

Thanks, gals.
