There's a setting that turns the screen black&white and it was not pleasant to accidentally find that setting.

Not a huge fan of the Win10 dark mode because I don't like it on the file explorer

@Ewan "Funk" Davidson: "Eugene Reynolds" may be my favorite rock 'n' roll pseudonym, because it's more like an alias than a stage name.

Exactly!! Such a funny name change to make. I thought about bringing that up, but (spoiler) ultimately did not.

Had to go nerd and look up the Shadow comic thing. It's the 70's DC Comics series, had no idea. You learn something new every day. And forget ten other things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm efd:

@van that was all news to me when I read it in the booklet that comes with the box set! There's an image of the cover of the comic in there too, that was a little mind-blowing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Gaylord Fields:

@mariano: Phil Ramone is no Paul Ramon, I'll say that much.

100! Dag, Carmichael. It was like 75 here today and I was getting all in a twist about how to handle it when things actually get hot.

You hit the pool? I have been jonesing for a swim!

yeowch, 100 is brutal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm ultradamno:

I think it got into the 80s here but, not spin off into cliche, it was the over the top humidity....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Handy Haversack:

See, once papa assured Henry he wouldn't leave him, the kid turned out OK!
  11:10pm steveL:

Gee, I like Juniper.
  11:12pm CC:

I should have known I wouldn't make it up past 10:30!!!
  11:15pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: “…was my favorite place to sleep between (or, occasionally, instead of) classes.” Wooo! Naps!
  11:17pm Carmichael:

To use the cliche, it actually is a dry heat. But hot is hot. I finished lugging junk to the curb for the annual pickup. Into the pool.

Thanks for listening Moto!

Michael, if the basement is Studio B- does that make the kitchen Studio B?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Handy Haversack:

Good night, Moto! Hope to see you abouts in the a.m.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm Handy Haversack:

This song just fits every situation I hear it in. So smooth -- and heavy.
Avatar 11:20pm Michael Shelley:

Studio K?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm efd:

I'll allow it.
  11:22pm JakeGould:

Some “Steely Dan” vibes with this “A Girl Called Eddy.”
  11:27pm Carmichael:

Yuji’s guitar line sounds so familiar. Every time you play this, I think of a particular artist. I need to research.

My new band will be called Dripping and Happy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm coelacanth∅:

i like the sparseness of this particular Juniper track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm mariano:

Damn, look at the folks who played on Juniper's album! "instrumentally, the Shelley family got an assist from the illustrious likes of Marshall Crenshaw, Dennis Diken (Smithereens), Chris Geddes (Belle & Sebastian), Jay Gonzalez (Drive By Truckers), Steve Goulding (Mekons, Nick Lowe), Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo), Chris Collingwood (Fountains of Wayne), Mark Spencer (Son Volt), Greg Townson (Los Straitjackets), and more."

Hi, efd and funk fans.

@Gaylord - Yes! I would crash at Loeb all the time. And in Philosophy class.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Stevel:

I don't think I've ever heard of The Checkmates. How is that possible? I have failed the Fort, or it has failed me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm coelacanth∅:

that statement makes me wanna stout
  11:36pm Carmichael:

Let’s pour a nice Guinness Shout.
Avatar 11:36pm Michael Shelley:

If you're interested in a weird 1974 no budget "movie" starring The Checkmates try this

I believe it may be in a genre all to itself: Blaxploitation-ploitation.

Michael: I'll tune in for sure. Lived in Fort Wayne since 1988 or so, working 19 years as a photojournalist. Never heard of them, although there was a collection of jazz (Black?) clubs that have avoided any recorded history that I have found.

Mungo Jerry checking in to declare it's summertime
  11:39pm Carmichael:

I swear Jerry says “put a bottle in your butt, it will soon be summertime.”

I just discovered a few days ago that Mugo Jerry's still at it, has a YouTube channel and he looks almost the same as he did in the 70s.

@Hoboken Jack: Hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm Handy Haversack:

Hey, Jack!

Man, I don't want this show to end. It's really been the wasp's nipples, efd! Time, apparently, keeps proving to be linear, despite subjective experience, so I *guess* this clock thing is going to make a difference.

I guess what I'm saying is: I have had a very nice time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm efd:

Thanks Handy!
Hi Jack and Joe, and everyone else I haven't said hi to directly! (Which, admittedly, is most of you.)

@Gaylord - ha ha, I was in Tisch, slept through a few silents. I still mean to finish watching Pandora's Box.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm Mr. Pumpy:

Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well...distractions and commitments have kept me away. Luckily, there were a lot of laughs involved, I hope that can be said for everyone! Hey, efd!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Handy Haversack:

Oh, cool! The game Jarrett was talking about? That's so great! It's a fun system.

I spent my "day off" on Monday reading Electric Bastionland in the yard. That would be a super fun one to find time to run.

Not for nothing, efd, but I would be a very sad Sack if I ever did anything that made Scott Williams even slightly upset!

Also: Thanks! And thanks, Skeleton Skott!

Great show, Evan. Thanks, and thanks skeleton crue. Stay safe and sound, everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Scott Williams:

Great show Evan! And totally glitch-free!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm Mr. Pumpy:

Yeah, Handy. Good stuff, cool differences, for a little diversion. Intiative is arrived at with cards...so it mixes it up. Anyhow, even though you only "read" Electric Bastionland...perhaps it will seep into AS&SH. Stranger things have happened. A case for...cases, otherwise I may have thought you were reading a book titled 'Electric Bastionland in the Yard'. That and the infinitesimal other possibilities.

Wait...is this the same guy telling case sensitivity to go fuck itself?!
