Thunder rolling around out there, which drove me back inside, though it's the first not-miserably-hot day in a while. I just told the dog, "Thunder is just nature's way of saying your a bad boy." He's not taking it too much to heart, though.

So what's "rabbit rabbit"?
Avatar 12:21pm Mary Wing:

From Wikipedia: "Rabbit rabbit rabbit" is a superstition found in Britain and North America wherein a person says or repeats the words "rabbit", "rabbits" and/or "white rabbits" aloud upon waking on the first day of a month, to ensure good luck for the rest of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Handy Haversack:

God, I love the "Labor Day" part of this track. I sing it all the time. I cannot not want this song.

WH Henry, for Canada Day I will eat pancake with maple syrup and watch Strange Brew tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Webhamster Henry:

The Most Wanted Song makes a good companion to Sondheim's "I Am Unworthy Of Your Love". That's just been reissued on the Sondheim Disco Album project.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Webhamster Henry:

I think there used to be a note on the WFMU copy of "Most Unwanted Song" warning of the stretch of Elevator Music in it.
  12:31pm Cronbat:

Has this ever been performed live?
Avatar 12:33pm Mary Wing:

Hi Cronbat, good question! I bet it would be mentioned on Dave Soldier's website. Maybe Henry knows?
Avatar 12:34pm Sem:

As a radio copywriter, two or three times a year a client would come in with a creative idea, i.e., have his 4-year old read the spot. No amount of persuasion could deter them.
Wanted to drive ten penny nails into my ears everytime I heard it, which was all day 'cause the monitor in the office could not be turned off, and there was no volume control.

I don't think so ... we may have to put together a virtual Hoof-n-Mouth and do it ourselves.

  Swag For Life Member 1:31pm spodiodi:

or maybe neither, eh?
Avatar 1:32pm Roberto:

It might have had something to do with the fact that Sandinista and The River hit the airwaves around the same time. It seemed like everything on rock radio at the time was off one or the other.

Spodiodi, the guy in question was a real Mexican,born there. Where is I am a Pocho, which made me suspect.

Hi Ike, nope! But whatcha got against that tune?

Hello Mary and all
I'm partial to Sandinista! for personal historical reasons. Mostly killer, some filler, but since nobody agrees which is which, I'd say quality

it's not about knowledge or enlightenment, but "pretentious" is a popular catchphrase for folks who live in a small bubble of experience and somehow are also arrogant.

Last summer I arranged to meet my friend Bert outside Ladbroke Grove tube, to then go for a drink. Just as I came out of the station on a perfect early summer evening, in the shadow of the Westway, Mick Jones walked past. It couldn’t have been more perfect.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm coelacanth∅:

the thing is, you could say many unfavourable things about sandinista!.
"lots of filler"; "rushed production"; "substandard compositions"...none are my opinion, but could be a valid argument i suppose. "pretentious" is just for people who don't get what they were going for.

I think the historical context of Sandinista! makes it more delicious -- as an immediate follow-up to one of the most successful "alternative" albums of all time.

Spodiodi, not true. I always fall for your pretentious act. Doh.

Who remembers the parody Crapture from Dr. Demento? I think I know those lyrics better than the original.

A cherry red Corvette.
Avatar 2:23pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yeah, been the oldest guy in the club. It only mattered if you were on the prowl, otherwise not so much.

Does Micah have a Xian cover of Rapture? The title alone should inspire some

DiL, I can't be concerned with all of the little people who don't understand my depth, sorry

it's hard to top the taste of American fiberglass cars
  2:27pm David in London:

Mmm, AC Cobra for proper delicious American heavy metal (don’t mention you know who...) or an E-Type Jaguar for a delicious Swinging London afternoon tea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm coelacanth∅:

Franco being the oldest or one of the 2-3 oldest guys in the club offers some potentially lovely benefits; but yeah not if you're prowling
  Swag For Life Member 2:29pm spodiodi:

there was a super old guy who came out to the clubs regularly in Charlotte in the early 90s, complete with old man suit and old man hat... not shy at all. inspirational
Avatar 2:30pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel,I know! like having someone offer you their chair because you look like you're in pain.
  Swag For Life Member 2:30pm spodiodi:

little old italian cars are nice in the summer, on the beach
  Swag For Life Member 2:31pm spodiodi:

ha Franco :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm fred:

Being one of oldest guys in the club while wearing a WFMU T-shirt has the latter sometimes getting me a nod from a band or its crew, which gives me instant and undeserved cred. But not a free beer, alas
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm coelacanth∅:

David both solid contenders (the xke was my dream car when i was a tot)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Handy Haversack:

I forgot I can't hear GTDR when putting away the supplies. Sigh.

So, it seems the Rapture has arrived. Nice exclusive, Mary.

Is there a steel drum version? There should be
Avatar 2:40pm Mary Wing:

Couldn't find one, sadly. Believe me, fred, I looked!
Avatar 2:41pm Sem:

How about a steel bridge version? The Golden Gate is looking for new repertoire:
“Engineers designed new sides for the sidewalk to help with wind resistance but didn’t take into account the EXTREME sound it creates when wind passes through it. The Golden Gate sings crazy songs now it’s so trippy. It hurts the ears and unbearable it’s that loud.”
  2:41pm David in London:

Or Fatty Owls.
Avatar 2:41pm Roberto:

Sadly, Mr. Pretentious, Moi? recently passed away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm fred:

@Mary: someday you'll just have to convene your own steel drum band to fill all those gaps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Handy Haversack:

I didn't know that, Roberto.

Also, good review of KennyG's new book (which I worked on with him). If anyone sees People Like Us on the boards, maybe point her to it?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm fred:

@Handy: Is it out yet? I'm going back to work tomorrow, I hope my favorite bookshop survived
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Sorry, late to reply - yes, love Sandinista!
  Swag For Life Member 2:46pm spodiodi:

Sem @ 2:41 -- those bridge noises are real, and made me wonder WTF, first I heard them some weeks ago (guessing a day before the report linked) -- haven't heard them much since, if at all
  Swag For Life Member 2:47pm spodiodi:

EXTREME is no understatement
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Handy Haversack:

@fred: We accelerated things and got it done way before the pub date. So it is *certainly* available for ordering; whether the bookstores already have it on the shelves is a slightly different question, but your bookstore could definitely order it from the press or through their distributor. Bookstores the preordered it should have copies by now.
  2:48pm Dean:

That Kenny G book looks terrific!

The Golden Gate was pretty quiet, as I recall. Used to live on the 700 block of Sutter. Back and forth to Marin often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Handy Haversack:

Of all the books I have worked on over 18 years in publishing, KennyG's is one of my very favorites!
  Swag For Life Member 2:51pm spodiodi:

thanks for another 100% Whatever, Mary Wing! as a very important person with taste, i give it an A++

HIt the spot, Mary. Refreshed for the rest of the day. 3OAK is just OK with me.
