"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03am Handy Haversack:

That's the story, @p20. Plus I hadn't factored in the facts of payday AND Friday when needing to go to bank and liquor store.

General population mask wearing ~40 percent around here? Thinking it makes people feel like they don't HAVE to observe the JRu radius.

Civil servants / police / EMTs: maybe 50 percent masked: small sample size, though. Two letter carriers, two police cops (POLICE COPS!), two traffic cops, two EMTs in an ambulance (one eating, unmasked).

Highlights included an Coke truck driver taking the turn too wide onto our block as we were crossing back over to it, freaking out, dropping the sandwich he was eating as he grabbed at the wheel, and somehow managing to open the driver side door as he swung back into the turn! Wild ride!

But I got the damn Cynar.

In NYC they are encouraging everyone to wear a face mask of some kind. Explicitly recommended bandanas and scarfs. Honestly most of the people wearing surgical masks and construction maks are overdoing it.

The interesting maths in that particular ratio war is that the new MFu is coextensive in the x axis while the JRu is almost exclusively a y-axis measurement. Though I have almost completely given up playing with axes with the NYC hospitals so busy these days.

The NRu is, I think, a measurement of psychological fortitude in relation to sound / music. For example, "Man, John Allen loves that record. I can't take it, though, I have to leave the room when anything goes over 3NRus."

Hey here's a question - bit of a long shot but maybe one of you music experts here can help me with this. Sometime around 2003 (?) I bought a CD that featured a Japanese vocalist who was recorded underwater. The music was mostly electronic. I can't remember the name of the singer or anythign else about this. I lost the CD ages ago and I've been trying to figure out what this was. Searching for "underwater vocals" etc turns up too many irrelevant results. Anybody here have a clue?
