Good afternoon Pseu and fellow Hookers

Afternoon everyone! I am being distracted from work by a heated WhatsApp discussion about R.E.M., which seems perfectly timed for this show...

hi & thanks for intro to beanpole. here's more on that. consequenceofsound.net... (It's Les Claypool, et al., released on Sean Lennon's label)

Hi all!

Anyone going to the Lemon Twigs shows in Nov.? I have tickets for Asbury Lanes.
  12:32pm Maria D:

Thanks for the Glands!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Hughie Considine:

^^ what she said. Such a great and underappreciated band.
Avatar 12:39pm Jeff Moore:

That Lemon Twigs song sounds so much like sunshine and whimsy that it pretty much doesn't matter what words they're singing.

They could be singing about murder and dismemberment and cannibalism, and I'd be all "Ah! What a breezy song!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Hughie Considine:

I smoked a joint with Sean Lennon at an after-party for Blur in the '90s. I still cherish that memory.
  12:43pm andrewb:

Just got to thinkin so I went and checked. Sean is 2 years older than John got to be.
Avatar 12:43pm Pseu Braun:

ChrisB you better be using those tickets!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Parq:

Andrew-b: sobering thought. I'll bet Sean is keenly aware of that.
Avatar 12:49pm JakeGould:

Hey Pseu! Did you see the latest in dietary news? “Low-carb diet linked to early death, medical study suggests: Researchers concluded that people who ate a moderate amount of carbohydrates lived four years longer than those with low-carbohydrate consumption and one year longer than those who ate a lot of carbohydrates.” www.usatoday.com...
Avatar 12:49pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

@Hughie-that is a cool story! Who suggested it? Who supplied it? Just wondering.
Avatar 12:50pm JakeGould:

Imma just eat fries, bread and noodles from now on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm robyn:

i was thinking about how much i love pseu on my drive today
Avatar 12:52pm Pseu Braun:

I'm fine with carbs -- just avoiding white food -- crappy bread, white rice and too many pertaters. Limits on pasta
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Hughie Considine:

Well, Wild Neil, Sean suggested it. I was with a famous actress who happens to be my cousin, and they got to chatting. He had like a Sucrets box and rolled a nice one as we talked. Perfectly lovely, unpretentious person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Hughie Considine:

Oh man, this era of Bangles just slays me.
Avatar 12:54pm JakeGould:

@Pseu: Don’t eat too much junk. There’s this really nice bakery I pass by when I do mega walks—like 2-3 miles—and one time I bought a pack of 6 nice rolls. You know what? Talk about defeating exercise with a $1.50 investment!
Avatar 12:55pm JakeGould:

And on topic: This is some good Bangles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Bill in W.O.:

This set is breaking my mind with goodness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Carmichael:

I bought this Bangles album at the time. Surprisingly, I liked it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Parq:

I always liked that album, too.
Avatar 12:57pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

I really like The Bangles, Dale Bozzio (Missing Persons?), The Go Gos and others of this ilk...(Cocteau Twins, do they count? Dark wave?!), Blondie. Hard pop and nice female vocals, always wins in my book. Oh yeah, and who could forget The B-52's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm peapod ross:

whew. it works.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm Hughie Considine:

Did Vince Guaraldi hate being known as the Peanuts guy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Krys O.:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Krys O.:

Herb Alpert is ginchy.
Avatar 1:05pm JakeGould:

Raffi hated being associated with “Baby Beluga.”
Pretty sure Vince Guaraldi was fine with the Peanuts association.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm Panda Penguin:

I interviewed Stephen Malkmus recently about some of his all-time favourite songs (hang on, let me pick up that name I just dropped...sorry!) and this was one of his picks. I'd never heard it before, and I am particularly glad he hipped me to it. Swoon is very much the word.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm peapod ross:

i think everything about this is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Parq:

One of my favorite Aretha re-workings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Hughie Considine:

@Jake, you never know. I think it's akin to artists getting sick of performing their one hit, or the thing they're best know for. And some bands were never taken seriously again after having a hit. "I Wanna Be a Flintstone" comes to mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm I am the Upsetter:

This is the stuff I needed. Thank you Pseu!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Parq:

And yeah, what can you say about that Herb Alpert single.
Avatar 1:08pm JakeGould:

@D.Lightfoot: Only because Herb Alpert over-manufactured LPs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm peapod ross:

clay killed me with that showdown today. that was such a good day starter. also - ginchy is a great word. I had to look it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Hughie Considine:

I always loved that line, "the eyes in his head" -- you know, as opposed to the ones in his pancreas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Linda Lee:

woman could sing the phone book & give it soul.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Hughie Considine:

This is sublime.
Avatar 1:13pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

I would like to get Herb Alpert Whipped Cream and other Delights, its pretty good actually!
Avatar 1:15pm JakeGould:

@HughieConsidine: I really don’t think cynicism towards Peanuts really adds up to much. The idea that Vince Guaraldi somehow hated his work for Peanuts is silly if you understand that it was an uphill battle just to get jazz music as part of a children’s cartoon. Heck, even Charles Schultz doubted it. But it worked. That’s art for ya!

There are definitely a lot of bitter a-holes in the arts, but Vince Guaraldi never seemed to be one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16pm Linda Lee:

thought for sure 'possibilities' was bread's 'guitar man' straight off :-)
Avatar 1:20pm TehBadDr:

Pseu's playing that hippy music. Hi Pseu!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm Linda Lee:

@Wild Neil ~ chances are you will, too. probably the most commonly thrifted record in the whole world :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Linda Lee:

i think i have 3 copies & i haven't even tried.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Hughie Considine:

@Jake, I'm sure Vince was happy for the work. I was saying 'hate' for effect. Still, he was in the midst of making a career on his own. And then he's famous because of Peanuts. It's like the end of Pope of Greenwich Village, when Paulie puts lye in Bedbug Eddie's coffee. And Charlie goes, "What'd you do? I had him."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm peapod ross:

i would like to meet a porcupine captain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Guido from Cologne:

I go for "Faintly Blowing", but anyway.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Krys O.:

Thanks for the Ocean Blue! They were faves back then.
Avatar 1:30pm JakeGould:

@HughieConsidine: You honestly sound like you hate anyone who finds joy in success. The only pure art is death and failure and plan, blah… Such B.S. Stop projecting your misery on others.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Hughie Considine:

You see a lot, @JakeGould. But are you strong enough to point that high-powered perception at yourself?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Hughie Considine:

What about it? Why don't you - why don't you look at yourself and write down what you see? Or maybe you're afraid to.
Avatar 1:36pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

At TehBadDr.-I see that, and I LOVE the Echo and the Funnymen album of them in a rowboat in a...cave(?) at night(?)
Avatar 1:37pm JakeGould:

“Echo and the Funnymen?” What is that? A Weird Al parody?
Avatar 1:38pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

I LOVE the Valley Lodge twangy bass sound!
Oops! "Echo and the Bunnymen!"

In fairness, Vince Guaraldi has traditionally been the root cause of many a knock down, drag out brouhahahaha. The guy's a damned troublemaker.
Avatar 2:05pm JakeGould:

I’m stunned anyone would want to fight about Vince Guaraldi and/or Peanuts and/or Charlie Brown. Where’s Joe Cool when you need him?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Hughie Considine:

When I was moved to speculate as to how Vince Guaraldi felt about his sudden fame, it was not meant as a provocation. I thought the response was pretty full of armchair psychoanalysis though.
