Sounds like a few FMU shows I can think of.
  3:35pm Philip:

That's right, Sheila! I've gotten ASMRs since I was a small boy, but never had a word for it until about 6 years ago. The best ones are the ones in which the host does not realize they are providing ASMR. Usually they're doing Reiki.

All I listen to is sounds when conscious, so, sounds (minus bad music) never have a negative reaction to me.

also, that Santogold track sent me into a quick revisiting of old memories, of parties that had that kind of stuff playing...the times move so quick! ah!

Avatar 3:39pm NotARealDoctor:

I like listening to some sounds, NGH, I don't mind traffic noises, and I love to listen to birds singing in the back yard, but whatever that was supposed to be sounds like every annoying mouth habit (slurping, spitting, chewing, etc) of all my coworkers magnified and played simultaneously

@DJ Sheila, that's why we come here :)

As an American, I use the word "brilliant" all the time, "smart" less so, but I do use it to mean both "hurt" and "good looking"

frannie—So glad you enjoyed it! It was brand new to me too. Always a treat to hear something new by an artist I adore.

Did I hear "chingado"? Not sure if the FCC censors Portuguese (definitely dirty en espanol)....

@ngh, i think the lyric is "E faz gingado" -- about making a move, i think. (manslating:)

Beautiful broadcast, so glad to tune in! Cruelty as art can be super fun, and cruelty is certainly a normal part of being alive. Yet, lettuce all remember to focus it through art, and not toward each other. As some public figures make cruelty more and more commonplace, lettuce accept that it may be part of the human condition, yet we are powerful and strong enough to focus it toward art while treating others with kindness and decency.
