Oh! Sheila I want to hip you to a charming husband/wife duo out of Minneapolis called Syvers. I don't usually like synth-based hippie-ish indie pop, but they sing well and write actual songs. I saw them outside a brewpub during an art festival, and people were digging them. Here's their bandcamp (not affiliated): syvers.bandcamp.com

Biggest of hugs, Sheila, if you want. I've been more open with the chronic anxiety I've faced since losing my mom in 2013, both on Twitter and with my colleagues, and have gotten many open and private pings back with accounts of similar experiences and solidarity. I hope this is a safe space for your to share and explore these issues and their possible remedies; I'm sure the gang here will work to keep it so.

Dutch music paper De Volkskrant said today in the review of the Neko Case album that the track Curse of the I-5 corridor, sung with Mark Lanegan, is the best duet of 2018 (including the ones still to come)

I took MDMA once, skeptical at first. But I was amazed at how transformative it was

@Cecile. It probably does. I don't know the details why they suddenly said it has negative effects as well.

Avatar 5:26pm djsheilab:

Rob Kopp—That is absolutely right! It's SUCH a powerful duet. Quite a few curses in there so I didn't play it.
Avatar 5:26pm Cecile:

I hate the fact that I have to have a paper prescription for Ritalin, and I only get one refill because some assholes sell it to college kids. I also hate the fact that the meds I take are seen as caving in, and I hate the fact I used to believe that myself

Rob if it is smoked, you have the worries about smoke in the lungs for asthma and whatnot. But there are so many other ways to take it now.

I have to hear that, Rob. I love Mark.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm chris:

cannabis smoke can irritate the lungs, however and counter-intuitively, it can be helpful for asthma sufferers (though not as effective as inhaled steroids) as it contains cannabinoids that are bronchodilators
Avatar 5:30pm northguineahills:

Make sure you get the nearly pure MDMA. Can't take it now unless I'm w/ the missus, otherwise it would drive me crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Michael 98145:

@Smokestack, i suspect the song refers to the drive between Portland and Seattle. usually no fun, huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm chris:

i think one can drive the I-5 from the US/Mexico border to the Canada/US border
Avatar 5:33pm Cecile:

Good to know, Chris. I'm asthmatic. But I'm not going to start smoking again. The stuff out there today is way too powerful. The weak stuff was more than enough to make me a moron at times.

@Michael Yeah totally. Just driving through Portland is painful enough

northguineahills—That's why legalization is so vital. The drug will be regulated and pure. Just like alcohol. Booze was SO much more dangerous during prohibition.

me too, Cecile. i'm a lightweight with today's heavyweight strains... for my social anxiety, i find a 1:2 ratio of CBD to THC works wonders and it doesn't take much. lucky to live in a state where its easy to legally aquire

I saw Julee Cruise with Khan once. She came out and sang a couple of songs. Then Khan took off his pants. It was a weird night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Michael 98145:

If i'm not mistaken ( could be ) i think Omara is still touring.

Second time Julee Cruise is on WFMU!

Cecile—Haha! That made me laugh out loud.
Avatar 5:38pm Cecile:

He just took off his pants. Nothing more, but that was still enough Khan for me.

  5:39pm P-90:

I feel I should just mention here that what is sold as "Ecstasy" or "E" or "X" or "MDMA" on the street, in clubs, etc. is often anything but. Often just a small dose of speed, often with a little LSD. If you're lucky. So be careful out there.

Just saw MP read from his new book, can't wait to finish it! So much opportunity for healing on a grand scale if we just open our minds to the possibilities.THANK YOU djsheilab for getting this conversation going in a public forum.

@Sheila B: Stan in the wee hours and Kurt also played Julee, so I thought maybe she had a new anthology out or something. But pure synchronicity is better!

About Courtney Marie Andrews: Saw another Courtney last week: Courtney Barnett. I have all her albums, but seeing her live was a completely different experience. Didn't know she played guitar in a Neil Young style live. The first part of the show was her new LP, every track of it. Highly recommended

It’s gonna be so weird when the show does transition into the SUW theme song tonight. But a well deserved break for franny and michele.
