  Wed. 1/3/18 10:13pm Dean:

So, so love Charles Earland's grooves. Wish I'd been smart and old enough in '72 to head to Hermosa Beach for a gig like this.

As much as I love Hammond I have never been lucky enough to see any of my idols play live.

Oh, yeah, I'm here, too. Digging that Bobby Bryant too much to type.

Big plate of Greens!
  Wed. 1/3/18 10:22pm Dean:

Smith once told me to slow down with the martinis. The show was in Hollywood at the old Catalina Bar & Grill space. We were front/center, and there's a two drink minimum. Upon receipt of my second martini, he made the crack from the stage. I recall, too, that he was not in good health, having flown in that day from London(?) with a cold.

We are back in the deep freeze in Wisconsin tonight. 4 degrees with a wind chill of 10 below at the moment. However, we would like to state for the record that we did not send the so-called bomb cyclone your way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

We are in store for a similar freeze out. Wind, too
Avatar Wed. 1/3/18 10:29pm Jeff Ash:

Wind chills of 10 below to 25 below here through Friday. Temps below zero at night, but a little above zero in the daytime.
Avatar Wed. 1/3/18 10:29pm Jeff Ash:

Which is why we are huddled around the heat of "Testify!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

I will do my best to provide warmth!
Avatar Wed. 1/3/18 10:32pm still b/p:

Fuller alternative term is "baroclinic midlatitude cyclone." Not as sexy. Unless someone's heart goes pitty-pat for meteorological system identifiers.

Hey C! Welcome aboard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:35pm Funky16Corners:

Fortunately we have a gas stove and hot water heater, and a fireplace if we lose power.

Bomb Cyclone sounds like a carnival ride.
Concerned about you all. Don'tcha go anywhere you don't absolutely need to be.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

i'm pretty screwed if my electricity turns off. no heat; no water, once it runs out; and a very drafty, un/underinsulated apartment with only a rock foundation under part of it and nothing above most of it. it's cold near the floor even when it's 40ºf and not windy.
i'm not worried though, despite the government's comical ("bomb cyclone")efforts to make me panic.
think i'll have a drink!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:45pm northguineahills:

Been finding more peeps interested (or already doing) outside sounds, be it global club bass, or avant. This town keeps on surprising me. When I was indoors, i was wearing my wfmu tortoise tee,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:46pm coelacanth∅:

...i'd really like a big plate of greens though,G!! (they all looked terrible at the store 2 days ago)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:46pm northguineahills:

@coel: Why would your electricity turn off? Ice storm?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

I gotta get some collards and cook'em down. It takes patience to do them right but I love them.
  Wed. 1/3/18 10:48pm Dean:

Add brown sugar, a little beer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:48pm coelacanth∅:

ngh they say high winds a-comin'. old trees...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:50pm Funky16Corners:

We're near the water so we get the wind something crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:53pm northguineahills:

Weirdest thing, I got off of work around 9pm, and my windshield was iced over (it was 31F/-1C). I had to run the car for a about 10 minutes and find a rag to scrape it off. Never had to do that in FL, especially in the early evening. It's supposed to get down to 25F/-4C tonight, should be fun... (I never had a car in NYC, but it would occasionally get cold down here when I had a car in FL my youthy years)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:54pm melinda:

I am trying to remind myself that my street hasn't lost power for more than a few hours at a time in the last 30 years (according to my neighbors) except for when my tree took out the line in front of my house, and that tree/hazard is now gone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:54pm northguineahills:

Usually when it gets cold here, it's a dry cold, so there is very little moisture to freeze.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:54pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, the map looks like it's getting cold way down south. We lost power for more than a week after Hurricane Sandy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:56pm coelacanth∅:

i'm patient in the kitchen.
... i cut out the thickest parts of the stems of collards, cut them into about 1cm pieces and put them in at least 10 minutes before the rest, so they're nice and tender without overcooking the leafy parts. i add the garlic just before i turn the heat off; add the olive oil on the plate.
if i'm adding ginger i add it near the beginning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:57pm northguineahills:

In the last 4 months I've been here, I've only lost power for 5.5 days (Hurricane Irma).

In Brooklyn, I lost power for about 30 minutes due to Sandy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:57pm northguineahills:

Damn, coel, now I'm hungry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 10:58pm coelacanth∅:

me too i guess!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:03pm Funky16Corners:

I made shrimp and grits for dinner tonight. Big family fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:05pm Parq:

Ughh, Sandy. We are in the part of lower Manhattan that lost power for days. And we live on the ninth floor! Still, I don't wanna sound whiney, coz I know people lost homes and even lives that week.
  Wed. 1/3/18 11:06pm Dean:

Ekseption! Brings to mind Secret Oyster, but also Tomorrow's Gift, an early '70s krautrock band that Mary Wing's show prompted me to recall today. She played a completely unrelated album titled Tomorrow's Gift. Hadn't thought about that record for ages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:06pm coelacanth∅:

it's probably good, but i don't have the data in my memory to imagine what that tastes like! i loved shrimp scampi as a child. that's probably my closest reference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:07pm Parq:

By the way, I remember when Buddy's Place opened. It was on W.54th Street east of 5th Avenue. My high school self wanted to go there like anything. (And as the drinking age was stlil 18 in those days, I could have pulled it off. Oh, lamentations for lost opportunties.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:08pm Funky16Corners:

@Parq - We're right near some of the worst Sandy destruction down in the south part of Brick and Mantoloking but all we got as some downed trees and power loss
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

@C - I make them by cooking bacon, the sauteeing mushrooms and green onions in the grease, then dusting the shrimp in salt/pepper/flour/paprika and tossing them in the pan with some chicken stock, lemon juice and garlic. Serve them with cheese grits and hot sauce
  Wed. 1/3/18 11:09pm Dean:

Irwin played Grant Green today. Can't play too much Grant Green.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:10pm Funky16Corners:

You certainly can not!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:11pm Funky16Corners:

@DEan @11:06 - I have the first Ekseption LP and one 45 that I like a lot
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:14pm coelacanth∅:

Parq yes, perspective. just today, the firehouse siren near where i live has sounded 8 times so far. (i said this earlier but-) a month ago i would've said 2X/week is about average. i can imagine the tragedy that some of my relative neighbors might be dealing with right now.
  Wed. 1/3/18 11:15pm Dean:

Then run, don't walk, to Tomorrow's Gift and Release Music Orchestra, both underplayed German prog bands. Secret Oyster was Danish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:16pm northguineahills:

Well, it's the same temperature here in Gainesville as it is in Brooklyn, 29F/-2C.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:17pm Funky16Corners:

Wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:17pm coelacanth∅:

Larry that's a whole other world! i won't be making that, but now i can imagine it being very tasty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

It's a fair amount of work (and clean up) but it's so worth it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:18pm northguineahills:

Usually if it drops below freezing, it does so just before dawn, not this early.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:21pm coelacanth∅:

the work doesn't deter me, but i don't eat bacon or chicken and have never cooked shrimp or grits! (i eat shrimp now & then)
- still it sounds good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:21pm Parq:

This has been another landmark show, Larry, but I must go. Hope to catch you next week, but if not, as often in 2018 as possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:22pm Funky16Corners:

Nite Parq! Thanks for listening!
  Wed. 1/3/18 11:23pm Dean:

That's a great album. Doesn't turn up much.
Avatar Wed. 1/3/18 11:27pm still b/p:

They go beyond the title for a fuller Laugh-In bouquet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:28pm coelacanth∅:

Larry, i'd guess that your collard greens are more exciting than mine too, but i do sometimes deviate and saute the stems with some onions, mushrooms, garlic to add to the steamed leafy parts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:28pm Funky16Corners:

@SBP - Yes, though I can't imagine trying to capitalize on Laugh In with a 7:23 album cut. Just having some fun, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:29pm Funky16Corners:

@C - start out with bacon, vinegar and sugar, simmer a long time in chicken stock and garlic
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:32pm Funky16Corners:

Onions, too, and I may be forgetting something else. The recipe is on my ipad upstairs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:34pm northguineahills:

Ok, I'm off a cleaning.

I have nearly no experience cooking w/ dead animal products (wife's a vegan), but I'm a 'learning myself. I'm only good at cajun-style seafood boils. I just need to transfer that to my east asian fusion cooing, (my other specialty is Mexican fusion).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:35pm northguineahills:

I'm off to clean before bed, I might not make it back to the comments. Thanks again Larry, and happy new beer ears!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

Nite NGH! Happy New Beers to ye as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

well, i may have in fact had something like that on xmas, now that i think about it. the wife of my older sister's son (whatever title that gives her) brought collards to our potluck festivities; and she came north from a southern,"african american" upbringing.
-and yes, they were delicious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:38pm Funky16Corners:

Fortunately our kids love greens, so I'll keep on cooking them
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

right on. i may be wrong, but i think the benefits of eating the greens outweighs the potential harm of the bacon fat.
...i wish i'd had greens as a child. (besides the occasional frozen spinach and the even more rare iceberg salad.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:44pm Funky16Corners:

Great source of iron among other vitamins and minerals
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

Though I have some nice artisinal cider from the Finger Lakes that I could put on ice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

artisanal...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

damn -i have extra beer (probably), liquor, an extra ice scraper (ngh needs an ice scraper)...but i don't have a delivery drone.
  Wed. 1/3/18 11:50pm Dean:

Schmartisinal.

Why do I so often find Sonny Phillips' My Black Flower (reissue) in used bins?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:51pm Funky16Corners:

I don't know. I love his stuff, but he's more of a connoisseur's choice
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/3/18 11:52pm Funky16Corners:

I only use artisanal because they're from four or five different orchards/distilleries up by Skaneateles
  Wed. 1/3/18 11:52pm Dean:

I mean, Jimmy Ponder!
  Wed. 1/3/18 11:54pm Dean:
