Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 10:38am (((Murakami Whywolf):

I seem to able only to love one person and some cats, so perhaps my inability to love America isn't that strange. I also seem fundamentally unable to worship anything or anyone.

…or maybe it's just that America is too big and contains too much, and it's all America—feeding half of Europe twice and the near-genocide of our natives, liberating the death camps and Jim Crow, being nice on the scale of empires and punching anyone who doesn't love us for it. We're the Moon landing and the Klan, and I don't see any of it as any less American.

It has treated my family well, and me very well, and I despise ingratitude in others so I'd best avoid it myself, but love is blind and I can't stop seeing.

Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 10:42am (Murakami Whywolf))):

The podcast "You Must Remember This" had a ~six-episode series on Manson as pretty par for the course for Hollywood. It's good, but the narrator seems to extremely disapprove of anyone not 'normal', not just the Manson 'family'

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Ike:

Actually not true @βrian -- the FCC basically says you don't have to do a station ID until you get to a natural break in programming (otherwise classical stations would be pretty limited in how they can play extra-long pieces... oh wait I forgot, they've mostly been gobbled up by NPR news/talk anyway).
Avatar 11:20am Evan From Seattle:

@Ike I've gotten too used to hearing it! Its how I know its Tuesday. And for as dopey a song as it is (and it is don't get me wrong), it's better than that awful YNWA track.

this song is a bit too round for me. sounds like an excersize ball slowly bouncing down an alleyway
Avatar 11:22am βrian:

Ah, so maybe certain DJs don't realize that. So many times, I've heard interruptions for station IDs that I thought it was required.
  11:23am FܩFܩ (:

A group of homeless people sang a live 12 hour version of the track somewhere in London few months ago. Can't believe one can at most listen twice this version of the song a day!

@Evan, YNWA?!? That's whatabout-ism! @βrian, indeed it's not well-known.

@Ike its a terrible song, and I hate Liverpool. I imagine how i feel about YNWA is how you must feel about Felder.

Was it really 5/4 time? I think he was faking us out
  11:31am chompskyhonk:

It was actually in 4/5 time.
Avatar 11:32am Hubig Pie:

My music lessons fail me, but I believe it's 5 beats to a measure and a quarter note gets one beat

I think it was played in 4/5 in 1/4 of the song, and in 5/4 in the remaining 3/4

how do you draw a fifth note though?

as bad as that felder song is (and i turn it off every time -been doing that for years) i had to turn off that gavin bryars track a minute in - and i've only heard that once before.

(in other words, if i had to choose one or the other to hear every week, i'd choose felder)

For those people impaired of the Germanic language, that song was Shirley And Company's Shame Shame. Yep. I'm 100% certain. And I know that because, I don't think I have ever told you, but I did a German introductory course in 1998.

Hi Ken- out on an errand with the portable Ken show. It's NYC, so no car radio. Thanks to GOD for the WFMU app.
Walking back in the west village, and what do I see but an attractive hipsterette sporting the black station shirt with imprinted with jaunty WFMU lettering. She's got apple ear buds. I called out, WFMU! She replied 'of course.' Me "i'm listening to Ken now." She, "Me too." Me:" I love Ken's show." She, "everyone does!" We walked a few blocks together speaking of our favorite shows, until she entered her place of work. I continued back to base camp and the home stereo
