I totally don't understand how the sweeping action moves the puck thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Rich in Washington:

This is rockin'!
Avatar 7:14pm glenn:

sweeping melts the ice, causing the rock to curl. the ice is also pebbled, not smooth. curling is much, much, much harder than it looks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Gary:

It looks like the one sport that I might be good at, but I think that's an illusion. If it's hard, and it's a sport, I already know I'm not good at it
Avatar 7:15pm hyde:

@Gary it's because the ice is pebbled. the sweeping mooshes (this is a technical term) down the pebbles which makes the rock go straighter/further.
Avatar 7:16pm hyde:

haha, glenn's answer is better than mine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Gary:

I was just this morning reading about that Laibach concert in North Korea documentary and trying to decide if it's worth dropping ten bucks to watch.
Avatar 7:26pm glenn:

biathlon at least makes sense. you ski, you shoot. short track is just a cluster fuck.

@Gary i need to go make dinner and am not picky about what direction you go. play what you want!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Rich in Washington:

We've just this week gotten our first real dose of winter weather this year, a few below freezing days here and there notwithstanding.
We really seldom get any snow here in the pacific northwest. and when we do, people go crazy.

Is this Sublime Frequencies? (Radio Pyongyang).

Those Sun City lads (gals) really took their world music recording to the next level.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Gary:

Couldn't agree more -- certainly the biggest influence on a major part of my own life
Avatar 7:58pm northguineahills:

They got a lot of heat, b/c the first few records they released in Sublimed Frequencies were unaccredited, (how do you ID random stuff recorded on the radio). After that they went above and beyond and tracked down 'anonymous' artists long forgotten in the middle of nowhere to make sure they got paid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm cklequ:

Avatar 8:10pm northguineahills:

Most counties in FL are making it nearly impossible for medical mj dispensaries to open since they became legal in January. I just noticed a third opened in my town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Gary:

How do they block them, NGH?
Avatar 8:16pm northguineahills:

"x amount of miles from a school, church, park". Only allowed in areas designated as 'industrial' zones, etc. My county (Alachua), I've seen two w/in residential areas, w/in a few blocks of a public elementary school. So, at least we don't have 'think of the children (but not really)' syndrome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Gary:

Ah, yes -- of course
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm cklequ:

Thanks, Gary. I usually listen to the archived stuff I miss at work.
This might be one I can't.

Avatar 8:20pm northguineahills:

The recreational mj vote only lost 51.9%-49.1%, so, the next vote it will probably go through.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Rich in Washington:

We have a similar thing with recreational pot stores here in washingstoned. My immediate city allowed marijuana stores within city limits but the county, in their infinite wisdumb, found a way to block stores from selling outside city limits. How the hell does that work, you may ask?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Gary:

Does that work in the same way as in FL?, I ask
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Rich in Washington:

One store owner called BS and opened one right outside city limits. The county fined him something really ridiculous for every day he operated in defiance of the stupid county ordinance. He spent a bunch of money appealing, made a ton of money in sales, finally complied but ultimately reopened. The state might appeal that stupid county ban.
I must say, it's pretty weird to see weed stores in town, dudes with signs on sidewalks advertising them.
Avatar 8:25pm northguineahills:

my younger brothers are Republicans (socially liberal, but I'm trying to help them grow out the GOP), and they and their friends all are staunch supporters of legalizing mj.

Pretty much, Gary, I've seen articles in that in Tampa and Jacksonville, it's been nearly impossible to open dispensaries. Orlando and Miami have had better luck. They're mushrooming here.
Avatar 8:27pm hyde:

lotta slowdown on that sort of thing in Mass. too, fwiw. we voted basically to decriminalize weed, but a lot of resistance on the town front for even medical dispensaries
Avatar 8:28pm northguineahills:

Damn, you weren't lying about this Lee Jung Hwa, it has an epicness of a Gainesbourg/Vannier track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Gary:

... and then suddenly here are the vocals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Rich in Washington:

I don't know the ins and outs of the medical thing, but it seems like in my state, my immediate county found a way to ban dispensaries but couldn't ban stores, hence the city vs county thing. It's weird and I don't fully understand it.
Avatar 8:32pm northguineahills:

oh, god, in NY/NJ, the village/town vs township vs county vs state will be so byzantine that it will decades before anyone know what the fuck to do....
Avatar 8:34pm northguineahills:

(i had to work w/ NY/NJ politicians when I worked for the Census Bureau, that part of my job was quite the headache.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Rich in Washington:

What weighs heavily on my mind with the legalization of recreational pot, is what about that dude who middle class folks who smoked pot relied on to be their go-to guy for good ging. I mean, you'd have him over, maybe let him paw through your record collection and talk for a bit, so as not to queer the deal by being all business like - tell him you and the wife had a dinner date to eventually move him along, give him his money and send him along his way.
What's that guy doing now? Anybody ever think about that?
Avatar 8:38pm northguineahills:

I don't know, I went to college in FL w/ my NYC guy, so, we were already friends. Once he started making enough money doing studio recording, he quit as he got married. Then, magically, a dealer moved next door to me.

Now in FL, I know no one who has a connection, but my sister-in-law keeps me supplied through whomever she knows. (she and my bro live a few hours away)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Rich in Washington:

I told my first ever 'bud tender' at a store that they should have a special place to sell for people of my age, like a back alley, from one car window to another, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Gary:

Oh, man -- there was a famous bud tender here associated with the Poetry Project at St Mark's, but he passed away several years ago. Very nice guy
Avatar 8:51pm northguineahills:

Ok, I'm leaving work, I need to get garden supplies (que chinga, it's almost 9 and everywhere is closing). Thanks Gary! (I really should have left here 2 hours ago, but, I don't observe time except through the prism of which FMU dj is playing.)
  8:52pm rw:

Hello! Was listening to the Lee Jung Hwa song on the way home and the singer reminded me of Kim Jung Mi. I think it may have been her singing on that track. Gary, you probably already know of her but if not you should look her up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Gary:

Ah, man -- good luck finding the supplies, NGH, and apologies for the distraction!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Gary:

RW! Yes, I won't be playing her tonight b/c I recently did a whole set of her -- super-love her. I wouldn't be surprised if the vocal was her -- we'll have to do some sleuthing
  9:00pm rw:

Yeah, my friend Jean-Ha introduced me to Jung-Mi's music. All I've heard is the Now record. I'll look up your set. Would like to hear more. Making dinner now but will be listening! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Gary:

She's terrific -- three albums that I know of
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm coelacanth∅:

Gary did i understand you to say this set is from north korea?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Gary:

No, sorry if that was confusing -- I said that I blew my North Korean set wad earlier and that everything else tonight is from South Korea
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm coelacanth∅:

maybe maybe not - i was cooking 'twas hard to hear.
...i was thinking, though of course we get a filtered if not manufactured depiction of Life in north korea; still, with what is believable, it's hard for me to imagine something like that electric eel track being created there.

I think the beginning of the verse sounds like ‘Why Did You Do It’ by Stretch (funky U.K. club cut) but nothing else in the song does

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm coelacanth∅:

scrolling up...@8.34 Rich, one thing's for certain - our government couldn't care less. visiting northern ca c.1999 the people told me how eureka came to be a shithole. the government didn't care that all these honest working cannabis sellers were living the theoretical normal family life, with 2.5 offspring, white pickit fences, mortgaged houses and leased vehicles. consequently 1/2 the town became a slum, fully equipped with meth labs.
whatever happens now with legalization would not happen if people working within the government weren't going to make bank.
