yay for Dauðyflin! and hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm fred:

@coel: I have a bumper sticker somewhere that reads "artificial intelligence beats real stupidity". I never owned a car so I never got to use it. And to tell the truth, the more I deal with AI at work, the more I doubt the message. Maybe we should rebrand it as AS
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Rory:

Pretty soon babies will chips in their brain. Everyone will be branded and your whereabouts will be known at all times. Doesn't the future sound terrifying? :)

I thought Monplaisir  was going to be Melt Banana for a sec...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm fred:

@Rory: not really. No way anyone is anywhere near being able to do anything nefarious with that deluge of information. Until we reach the singularity, information is processed by programs written by human, and humans are sloppy, dumb, and easily distracted
  12:45pm Blix:

Liz, you're totally out-rawking Matt today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm fred:

@ngh: Melt Banana songs don't last much more than a sec... How are your new job and new digs?

i like pigeons and yet am terrified of being defecated up by them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm northguineahills:

@fred: Job is keeping busy, but I'm enjoying it. It's going to take weeks for me to get my pad looking normal, but I love it and the neighborhood. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm fred:

@steve: like most fears, that one is overrating the odds: it only happened to me once, and I've been living in pigeon-land for 4+ decades
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm coelacanth∅:

i don't know if pigeons do this, but some birds aim their shit at specific targets, and human heads are always entertaining for them, it seems.
  12:58pm LaraKouklara:

In Grecce we say it is good luck for a bird to shoot your head xD
  12:59pm LaraKouklara:

when a bird*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Liz Berg:

Ha, funny Lara, the odds are like winning the lottery but the payout isn't as nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm coelacanth∅:

happened to me, in the middle of an open field i was walking my family's dogs...a lone bird flew by one time - got me perfectly on the top of my head.
  1:03pm LaraKouklara:

funny thing: when this tragedy happens we say to the target-person to go play a lottery xD
Avatar 1:04pm steve:

fred its happened to me 3 times in a decade in nyc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm coelacanth∅:

(i'd heard it was good luck, but i didn't think about that. all i thought about was getting home quickly and hosing my head off before someone saw me with shit on my head!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm fred:

@Liz: that's questionable: the one time it happened to me I was with a woman I was very attracted to, she helped me clean up and I guess I reacted with enough humor that we eventually dated, if briefly
  1:06pm LaraKouklara:

see? there is some Greek wishdom xD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm coelacanth∅:

Lara if it happened to me today i'd go play the lottery. i was a teenager then and mortified by potential embarrassment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Liz Berg:

We have so many lucky people here!
  1:07pm LaraKouklara:

you did the right thing it happened to me in school when i was about 10 or 11
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm fred:

@LaraKouklara: did you win the lottery?
  1:10pm LaraKouklara:

i was 10 and i didnt even knew what lottery is xD but my teachers said me i should play one!

Merkabah, also spelled Merkaba, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. "Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body.

Thanks steveo -interesting
Avatar 1:14pm drumsoverbogota:

I used to have a really long hair (but it was like an afro) and a bird also take a big one in my head. I had to travel like 1:30 hours (in rush hour) to get and wash myself. That was definitely not a lucky day (because I was going to buy something and didn't find it)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm fred:

@LaraKouklara: are you in Greece?

@Lara: I hope the economic situation is getting better. We only get dire news, but I don't trust them much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm coelacanth∅:

drums, in a way that is lucky...not the waiting part, but the afro part. my long also but straight-ish hair offered no insulation to the bird poop!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Rory:

The FMA is an intimidating place for me now. So much music. I just pick a genre and go from there.
  1:19pm LaraKouklara:

i dont think you can trust new no more! Well economic situation is getting better i think... people still holding on their feet but i fear they gonna cut wages until they cant take it no more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm steveo:

i love a good twangy set
  1:21pm LaraKouklara:

im not so much into politics they make me sick and i find it rly stupid nowdays but in general i thing the whole Europe is in crisis not to say the whole world
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm fred:

@Lara: A friend moved back to Athens to start a publishing company just as the shit hit the fan. Poor timing. Are you an an artist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm steveo:

this track sounds so delightfully old, but it was released on July 4, 2016.

  1:27pm LaraKouklara:

rly hard for a company to stay in its feet today, hope your friend will make it. No i dont think i can call myshelf an artist, i try to play some guitar but im rly crappy in it i just do it for me to relax
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm fred:

@Lara: actually she gave up and moved back to france. I think she still wants to try it, but she's not confident about the situation in Greece right now. She can bet her inheritance once, but she's not getting a second chance if it fails
  1:36pm LaraKouklara:

her company was about music publishing and stuff?

Hi Liz and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Ike:

I'm not sure I've heard this since it first came out in 1997! And back then, I don't think I knew it was a cover!
Avatar 2:02pm geezerette:

@Ike: Can you please clone your cat?!
Avatar 2:04pm TDK60:

Ike - That's an Eno cover?
Avatar 2:04pm Itzall Ablurr:

I'm with the geezer on that one, I could watch that kitty pushing around his sandal for hours!

this cat is a genius

it's having so much fun!
Avatar 2:08pm slugluv1313:

It's probably not even Ike's cat, just a GIF he found somewhere
  2:10pm LaraKouklara:

this cat pilots the sandal like a boss tho

  2:11pm LaraKouklara:

I would like get hit with some RAW POWER in the face right now!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Ike:

Yes I must admit Fred is right. Not my cat. My cat is elderly and decrepit. When I want to see a playful cat, I have to walk down to the local hardware store or the bodega, or look up GIFs like this.
Avatar 2:14pm geezerette:

Fred, you're probably gonna say these guys aren't actual ferrets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm fred:

@geezerette: don't take my work for it, it could be his cat! My main fount of doubt was Ike owning that kind of footwear, but I don't know him, so he could be wearing this stuff for all I know
Avatar 2:16pm Itzall Ablurr:

Happy to see that for all of Ike's apparent cynicism regarding the feline sandal commando he at LEAST credits Ike with good taste in footwear!
  2:16pm JakeGould:

The show is keeping me up. The rain can’t keep me down.
Avatar 2:16pm geezerette:

Well, Ike, you have excellent taste in GIFs. My cat's no fun either. She's dead.
  2:17pm LaraKouklara:

seems like a prety comfy sandal. I would gladly wear it!
Avatar 2:17pm slugluv1313:

awww but elderly & decrepit is cute too
maybe not as "playful" as the young-uns but still sweet
@ fred & geezerette -- ahh perhaps a collaboration of the Performing Ferret Band and Ike's GIF kitty???
Avatar 2:17pm slugluv1313:

some of my cats are maniacs and would EAT that sandal
Avatar 2:20pm TDK60:

Answering myself: yes, a Brian Eno cover from album- Another Green World, 1975.
Avatar 2:20pm geezerette:

Lara, so would I, but it's not my size.
Avatar 2:20pm Itzall Ablurr:

Big French reminds me of DEVO under ENO in a good way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm fred:

@geezerette: How do you know? That cat is just some internet thing, who knows its size? It could be smaller than you think.
(I really struggled with writing "it's size" to summon the Ike)
Avatar 2:28pm geezerette:

hi slugluv! if you're a cat that would probably taste good.
my cat was a shoe sniffer. to each it's own!
Avatar 2:31pm geezerette:

@fred: Good point! Or enormously large like the cat in "The Incredible Shrinking Man".
Avatar 2:32pm βrian:

That cat sure looks like my cat.

  2:33pm LaraKouklara:

i have a cat too guys, he exsists in my yard and only thing he do is lying down and sometimes coming to my, when i show in front of him, to rub him. Sometimes he wont come cause he is rly bored. I think he just stays here just because i give him food

Avatar 3:00pm slugluv1313:

hi geezerette! yup some of mine are into whole shoe-sniffing thing too -- too funny!
@ fred and Ike -- ah, but the kitty is a living creature, so technically "it" is not correct
(on the *other* hand -- the GIF is an inanimate object . . . oh the grammatical dilemma hah!)
  7:39pm Old Dave:

What a great show, Liz!
I had to catch on archive, due to work, but just want to say
how much I love you and this music you are putting out for us all to hear!
Thanks so much
