Well, there you go! I like Lileks, you like Lileks, we all like Lileks!

Thanks for the National Health Irwin!

The only song I know with the word "solipsism" in the lyrics.
Avatar 3:16pm Wild Neil:

Peace all. I think Shelly is hot, although upper left is pretty cute but shiny, maybe TOO shiny?
Avatar 3:16pm Wild Neil:

Center bottom is like Mary Ann on gilligans island....a sleeper...
  3:18pm Brendan:

Irwin come on down! Our prize showcase features a Broyhill living room suite, a all expense paid trip to Oahu, and a complete set of genuine imitation naugahyde luggage (Spiegel catalog 60696).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I will bid $799 on the deluxe washer / dryer set, Irwin.
  3:22pm Brainiac:

I am disconsolate over the news of Michelle Boulé untimely death. My she rest in peace.

I'm somewhat ashamed I've memorized the lyrics to the French Toast Man .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Bob Barker will turn 94 next Tuesday. I forget, did he have some harassment lawsuits?
Avatar 3:31pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

National Health were the only one of the so-called Canterbury bands not to feature any members with geographical links to the city, so they were most likely to dispute the tag. I can't find a Pete Frame tree that goes as far as NH (there's a 'Soft Machinery' one that's widely circulated), but there's a basic one here: www.geocities.co.jp...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm The Oscar:

Been busy working, but chiming in to say FREDDDD LAAAAAANE!!!

ron wynn? finally, someone can write a poem about me. it just has to also be about ron wynn
Avatar 3:53pm AnAnonymousParty:

I hope you got that 3 bucks I sent you.
  3:57pm Brainiac:

English is not my first language. I grew up speaking typo.
Still fluent after all these years.
Avatar 3:59pm Irwin:

You need to study languaging. It's how you word. Once you learn how to sentence, you can speech.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm dale:

hello sir. will we be hearing any THE sopwith camel commercials today?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm dale:

i was a truth or consequences man. always loved when the snake jumped out of barker's box. (that sounds wrong)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm dale:

wow - was that coincidence?
Avatar 4:02pm Irwin:

I don't see how you did that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm dale:

i don't either. especially as i only got two out of threee correct in wavelengths this morning on wake and bake.
  4:13pm Tony Seymour:

Listening in Hawaii
  4:13pm JakeGould:

Hey Irwin! Condolences on Michelle Boulé’s passing. R.I.P.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm BronwynB:

get in the swing boys, get in the swing with everybody and everything!
  4:17pm David in London:

Chiming in late here, but I can’t believe we’ll get a new Fred Lane album next year. That’s amazing news.
  4:17pm berbo:

@dale You've won a year's supply of Turtle Wax!
  4:18pm Cooh John:

Thanks for playing Saintseneca, my homies.
Avatar 4:18pm Bas NL:

I miss the 70ies. Just look at those shiny happy people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm BronwynB:

hey its optiganally yours, who introduced me to outsider music at age 6 with their shooby taylor-referencing song from the powerpuff girls soundtrack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Passaic River Blues:

Also, Optiganally Yours' "Poodleman" is an unheralded classic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm dale:

berbo - yay! and rice-a-roni?
Avatar 4:27pm Irwin:

Because you need to know:
Hank Mobley (tenor sax)
Mal Waldron (piano)
Arthur Taylor (drums)
Doug Watkins (bass)
Donald Byrd (trumpet)
Jackie McLean (alto sax)
Avatar 4:28pm Fredericks:

Super solid line-up there, Irwin. Is it safe to say you're jazzing out?
Avatar 4:29pm Irwin:

Safe, solid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Carmichael:

No cowbell??
Avatar 4:33pm Irwin:

Cowbell comeback forecast for 2018. BIG, if true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Carmichael:

Gives the tambourine veterans some hope!
  4:37pm Brainiac:

I would request this, but Irwin probably already has it queued up:
Avatar 4:38pm glenn:

and what about the background singers? once they've done their ooh oohs and la las, and their little shimmy shake, now they can smack a cowbell.
Avatar 4:38pm glenn:

or perhaps one bangs a cowbell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Carmichael:

I believe it's "bang a gong, smack a cowbell". At least that's what I learned at percussion school.
Avatar 4:40pm glenn:

and "smack a cowbell, get it on" just doesn't work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Uncle Michael:

"Key": a favorite track by one of my very favorite bands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm dale:

great guess who!!
Avatar 4:42pm Irwin:

This is a shorter version, Michael. The drum solo had to go.
Avatar 4:43pm Fredericks:

This Guess Who sounds like they're trying to become the Grateful Dead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Carmichael:

I saw these guys in '74, along with Montrose, Elvin Bishop and Redwing. In a race track stadium.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm coelacanth:

is this canned heat, from the album "the guess hoo"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Fuzzy:

Nice -- never heard this before. I like the longer album version of "No Time" too.
Avatar 4:44pm Irwin:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Carmichael:

I believe that's Randy Bachman on guitar, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Uncle Michael:

I understand, Irwin...the other version is loooooong.

I set aside a ten minute Guess Who track for an upcoming show, not half an hour ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

This cowbell talk reminds me of watching downhill ski racing on TV. Some fans wave cowbells around.
Avatar 4:44pm glenn:

garry peterson's a great drummer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Passaic River Blues:

  4:45pm berbo:

Every time you hear a cowbell, it means a lesser demon got his pitchfork.
Avatar 4:45pm Irwin:

He is indeed a great drummer, but the solo on this track is irrelevant, distracting, and unnecessary. SEZ ME.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm coelacanth:

i cannot imagine that the guess who would want to sound like the grateful dead. (or anybody besides the guess who, for that matter)
Avatar 4:46pm glenn:

yeah, but irwin, that applies to EVERY drum solo.
  4:47pm Warwick joe:

That electric guest song was friggin great. Gonna see if my wife will dance to it. That’s always the quality gauge.
Avatar 4:47pm glenn:

they tried to sound like the doors on at least a couple of songs.
Avatar 4:47pm Fredericks:

Maybe it was musical osmosis Coelacanth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm coelacanth:

@4:45 for the same reason i like the single edit better of "i'd love to change the world".
  4:48pm Brainiac:

@berbo Yeah, I'm stealing that one. When I tell it I'll preface it with, "Teacher says..."
Avatar 4:48pm Irwin:

Glad I could find a second Electric Guest song to love besides "Dear to Me," which continues in heavy rotation in my headspace.
Avatar 4:48pm glenn:

if you're gonna play old cancon, how's about mashmakhan? or crowbar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm coelacanth:

Fredericks, or musical Aoxomoxoa
Avatar 4:55pm Fredericks:

Quite likely.
Avatar 5:03pm Irwin:

Gibbard is lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie.
  5:15pm tuskandhusk:

Yaz Hollenback again here takin me back
  5:16pm tuskandhusk:

But Death Cab crept into my ears today earlier
Avatar 5:17pm Fredericks:

I like when large ensembles leave room for adventure. Too often the arrangements stiffen the delivery. I like my jazz loose-limbed. This Hollenbeck is just right
Avatar 5:21pm Alison Porchnik:

Wow this is really great!
Avatar 5:43pm glenn:

speaking of drummers, here's an interview with jerry granelli. www.cbc.ca...
Avatar 5:46pm Parq:

Haven't had time to come out and play today, but the whole show has been terrific, as usual.
Avatar 5:48pm Parq:

By the way, somewhere on FMU's archives there are videos of Ben Gibbard joining Tom Scharpling, Ted Leo and Patton Oswalt singing Abba's "Take a Chance" and Donovan's "Atlantis".
Avatar 5:50pm Irwin:

They were joined by Vance, The Prog-Rock Puppet.
Avatar 5:56pm Alison Porchnik:

There was a Fairyland in downtown Oakland, CA that I used to visit. I wonder if this is the same?
  5:57pm Laura L:

Thanks, Irwin! Especially for Fairyland!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Michael 98145:

thanks again, Irwin
