Good afternoon Handy (and Kate if she's listening, too)!

I never know what is enough till I've had too much. Like that sangria I gulped last night.
Avatar 12:04pm Mary Wing:

Hiya David, Sem, and Hubig! Welcome to Wednesday whatever!

David, I do so enjoy your comments (along with the others') on Stan's playlists; something about that time slot brings out the creative spirit in some folks, heh.
Avatar 12:04pm βrian:

The ottoman is in the upholstery shop.
(A wayward scimitar cut, don't you know.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Handy Haversack:

Kate is walking the dog -- so there's every chance the two of them HAVE melted. But if they resolidify and make it home, I will pass along, Mary!
Avatar 12:06pm βrian:

May they, eh, congeal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm David (in London):

Mary, ha ha, I always forget that the Eye of Wing is ever watchful at that time. 19am is a great time to free-form.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm David (in London):

Hey Sem. Good vibes to you in the BoF.
Avatar 12:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wingnut was the derogatory term of choice amongst the homeless when I was in their ranks in Santa Barbara late 80s... fitting maybe I should be one now.
Avatar 12:08pm βrian:

Ok, I've always wondered: Is Fundy short for Fundament?
Avatar 12:09pm Mary Wing:

Hey there RevRab! I never heard it applied to the homeless, I wonder why they (whoevre "they" are) chose that term?
Avatar 12:09pm Really. Lisa.:

A hello, and a thank you in advance, Mary.
Ears tuned in, while working.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm Phillippe Bastille:

Hey everyone! How's the weather where you are? I'm testing out what life will be like in my inevitable eternity in hell.

Hubig Pie - 19am isn't a time, it's a state of mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Handy Haversack:

I was hoping the rents would be cheaper in hell, Phillippe, but apparently we just brought the whole mess with us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Phillippe Bastille:

Hey DiL! And hey Handy, Hubig, βrian, RRNov63, Sem! And Mary too! Oh, and happy week after your birthday Really. Lisa.
Avatar 12:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Mary: Wingnut the servicable term of choice applied by the homeless only to those deemed deserving - of whom among our ranks there would be a certain %age.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Handy rent's about the same but the utility bill is through the roof. And internet is dial up
Avatar 12:14pm Mary Wing:

Hi Lisa, Phillippe, and Roberto! 86° right now in NYC, possibly up to 90° later.
Avatar 12:14pm Really. Lisa.:

@Phillippe B, thank you for the kind wishes.
Avatar 12:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

....but if nothing else - rent didn't happen to be our immediate concern...
Avatar 12:16pm Hubig Pie:

Bonjour Mr. Bastille.
It's always 19am somewhere then, DIL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Handy Haversack:

The new avatar picture is great, Lisa -- you both look so happy! Thanks for sharing it with us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Phillippe Bastille:

I know this sounds weird but I really don't get uncomfortable until the temperature hits the mid to upper 90s. I put a cardigan on at 78.

@Really Lisa: We need everyone to hear it like you spell it out on your profile. All power & condolences to you.
Avatar 12:21pm βrian:

75 right now on the isthmus. Quite bearable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm David (in London):

Hubig Pie - It emerged from a typo made by John from Florham Park, and we adopted it immediately to mean "that weird liminal time where the normal rules of time and space don't exist". Thus followed the 19am Society, with John as the President, and we 'meet' on Stan's board early on Friday. No one can ever be late for 19am. Consider yourself now inducted into the society. I welcome you.
Avatar 12:22pm βrian:

Je pense, donc 19am.
Avatar 12:23pm Mary Wing:

My condolences, Lisa; you are correct, so many needless deaths.
Avatar 12:25pm Sem:

@βrian@ 12:08. Had no idea about the name "Fundy" There's this:
The Bay of Fundy (French: Baie de Fundy) is a bay between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with a small portion touching the US state of Maine.It has an extremely high tidal range.The name is likely a corruption of the French word Fendu, meaning "split".
Avatar 12:26pm Mary Wing:

David in London, I thought Vincent's opening greeting on Stan's playlist last week was one for the books: "Touch the 19am of his garment" -- Heh, it still makes me chuckle even now.
Avatar 12:26pm βrian:

Les fesses fendues, peut-être.
Avatar 12:28pm Really. Lisa.:

@Rev Rab Nov 63. Thanks for saying so. I can't not think about it. I try. Only posted that today bc of the date/anniv. I won't leave that up after today. I kind of needed to type it out, and see it myself. And the photo is a screen shot of me getting my dad to lol 8 yrs ago. I often watch the 20 sec vid I grabbed it from, of me being a goofball to get him to laugh. It helps a little.
Thank you as well, Mary.
Avatar 12:29pm Hubig Pie:

19am in my time zone is in the wee small hours, Where the previous nights flagon of port is still holding court.
Avatar 12:30pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

@Mary I'm here, hello!! sorry, i was listening to mixes for our new album :))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Really. Lisa. That is a powerful statement. I am sorry for your pain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm coelacanth∅:

my condolences Lisa. may he rest in peace.
Avatar 12:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I thot there might be a Venn diagram showing the intersections of 19am with the Twilight Zone, the 13th Floor of bespoke Elevators & 25 O"Clock as expostulated by the Dukes of Stratosphere...but it does not appear to be materially @ hand just this moment...

Thank you, Phillippe and coelacanth∅.
Avatar 12:32pm Mary Wing:

Salut, Sylvia! A worthy task, indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm David (in London):

Hubig - A flagon of port is the ideal accompaniment to an appearance at 19am. I salute you.

Rev - I often bump into Roky and Andy Partridge at 19am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Phillippe Bastille:

19am sounds like military time in Buchistan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Handy Haversack:

Hello, Nick.

Still feeling the show at Barclays in 2018. Was that really in 2018? Holy crap, it's been 19am forever now.
Avatar 12:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I don't just want to see this Administration voted out by an inexorable tsunami - I want it tried in exacting detail under the fullest exposure @ something like the Nuremberg hearings. Justice is never near complete.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Handy Haversack:

Good news, Mary -- Kate and the dog have returned. They are cooling to room temperature but maintaining solidity. Kate says hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Phillippe Bastille:

I'm intrigued about these 19am meetings. Is alcohol a requirement for attendance or can I substitute a couple expired Klonopins?
Avatar 12:37pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

@Really.Lisa. People who choose not to stand by you during hard times do not deserve you.
Avatar 12:39pm Mary Wing:

Hi Kate!

I don't think alcohol is a requirement, Phillippe, but Stan frequently does encourage smoking what you may have in your possession.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm David (in London):

Phillippe - Klonopins are encouraged at 19am. As are sitars, cider, seashells and salamanders.
Avatar 12:41pm Really. Lisa.:

@Sylvia, thank you.
Avatar 12:43pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

interesting artist name in French, it means "Yes Boredom"
Avatar 12:43pm Franco Twinkie:

Mary! Handy!! Kate!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Phillippe Bastille:

Thanks DiL! I will crush them up and stir them into my coffee. Now I just have to figure how to show up and then remember to do it.
Avatar 12:45pm Mary Wing:

Good morning Franco!

¡Franco!

Heya Mary and people of the airwaves. I have your music cranked, as I am the lone office member, 126 days running. Unless of course, the security guard wanders by.
Avatar 12:46pm Sem:

I have a friend who swears that 19am demands vicodin and vanilla frosting, but I haven't heard from her lately, so perhaps that's changed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi 100%ers. I was just sending a fax. Sheesh, some banks need to get into the 21st century!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm David (in London):

Sem, vicodin and vanilla frosting is a 19am classic. It's never wrong.
Avatar 12:47pm Mary Wing:

I bet Regina Spektor sounds great cranked up, Carmichael!
Avatar 12:48pm Sem:

Is that as cool a gig as it sounds, Carmichael?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Phillippe Bastille:

Man, I thought I was Mr. Smartypants yesterday bragging about my big box of WFMU swag that arrived. TODAY it's a 1/24 diecast of the 21 Menards/Maytag Wood Brothers Mustang, autographed by Matt DiBenedetto and all three Wood Brothers! You'll have to look long and hard on the WFMU comments boards to find another person crowing about that!
Avatar 12:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

All about salamanders of late it seems. None for my coffee though Cheers.
Avatar 12:49pm Mary Wing:

Hello Henry! We had that discussion at work recently, when we got new printers. "Do we need to activate the fax function?" I said no, but was over-ruled because of companies like banks, heh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm David (in London):

Webhamster, a few years back (i.e. about four or so), I had to send something in to HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs), and over the phone they told me to fax it in as "We aren't yet at a stage where we can receive emails". Hell's Teeth, I thought, get with the century. Finding a working fax machine was no easier task. I'd nearly forgotten how to operate one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Webhamster Henry:

I had lots of antiquated devices, an actual phone line (although VOIP), and old driving software and it STILL wouldn't work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Stanley:

Hahaha. Done it again, listening to one stream, reading the accu of another!
Howdy Wingnuts
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Phillippe Bastille:

We don't have a landline anymore, so I wouldn't be able to send a fax if I wanted to. I think banks still like them, though, because they are harder to steal than email attachments. It requires a physical presence.
Avatar 12:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

There's a fax @ the Library - closed now of course - & rightly so as I think I caught the covids there right before all was locked down.
These days you take a pic with your phone & send it along it seems...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Handy Haversack:

I think banks (and the govt.) still take faxes because the Supreme Court is on record as saying they are real -- legally binding, that is. But the record is still silent on scans. Often they are scanned in as soon as they are received.

Hiya, Stanley!
Avatar 12:54pm Mary Wing:

Hi Stanley, I hope you were listening to *this* show and not the other one! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Webhamster Henry:

Back in the Dotcom days, I wrote a thing called the Fax-Bomb that let you fax into a server and let the recipient see it with a web browser (probably Netscape). That's because people had faxes, but not cameras, so they could send pictures in by faxing them. Used at ultra-dotcommy web magazine ST!M. stim.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Stanley:

*Ahem*, of course Mary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm David (in London):

Yo Stanley. An RGS hello to you.

Well, *I* just got an e-mail from THE BLACK SABBATH OFFICIAL STORE!, Phillippe, so that's pretty cool, too.

Mary, yup -- one for me, one for Kate. We'd have got one for the dog if they made 'em!

Fire & that Sabbath shirt. Man I love them.
Avatar 1:01pm Mary Wing:

Maybe one of your American friends can buy one for you, Stanley?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Handy Haversack:

Stanley, we could see about getting one for you and saving for next Marathon (since that seems like it will happen before we are able to come to Europe again ...)
Avatar 1:04pm Mary Wing:

I *seriously* doubt that we are having an in-person marathon next year...
Avatar 1:05pm Sem:

Mary Wing: 80s Gal.

Is there an action figure?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Handy Haversack:

Oof, Mary, not sure I was ready to hear *that*!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Stanley:

Handy that's kind of you. Like Mary, I don't think there will be a normal marathon fest net yesr. In fact, I heard Ken say as much.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Handy Haversack:

Well. That is depressing, Stanley. I think I'd lowered my time visor and have not been looking past the next 19am lately. It makes sense, of course. But is not making the day any easier to cope with.

Ugh. These *days*, I swear.

Where are all these clapping children now, I wonder?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Carmichael:

In the streets throwing bricks, Mary.
Avatar 1:16pm Mary Wing:

Has anyone seen those documentaries of British children as they grow up? I thin the first one was called 7 Up?
Avatar 1:17pm Franco Twinkie:

I saw Pere Ubu on a hot night in August 1979 at the Whisky a GoGo. David Thomas beat on a piece of metal with a hammer, and Allen Ravenstine played a synthesizer the size of a castle door. They were a rock band back then.
Avatar 1:18pm Mary Wing:

They were done by Michael Apted, I just found his IMDB page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm David (in London):

Mary, yes, the 7-Up series was very popular here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Handy Haversack:

I think we stalled out at 35 Up, Mary, when our video shoppe closed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Stanley:

Yeah, Handy. The whole business is shite but I'm convinced that when we get through it the station is going to be stronger than ever. Just look at how it's coping during this crisis. The team are amazing and deserve all manner of honours bestowed on them. Clay Pigeon, in particular. His morning shows are like therapy and should be recommended by doctors.
Avatar 1:20pm Mary Wing:

I think 35 Up was the last one I saw also, Handy, for pretty much the same reason!
Avatar 1:21pm Mary Wing:

Wow, 63 Up was released just last year.

The "kids" are going to start dying off soon, heh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Handy Haversack:

("The video shoppe, Tommy?! The fucking video shoppe?!" Had to move *that* from brain to world.)

I like your vision, Stanley, and agree on the laurels owed and deserved. But I also especially agree that the whole business is shite. One of those days that keeps ramming that home for some reason. Maybe it's the heat. Which if anyone had "beyond the power of mortals to endure" in the pool, you've won!
Avatar 1:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah how many Conservatives & cheap comedians joked about how nice it would be to get warmer...
Avatar 1:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Stanley:

I feel for you Handy. In the city in this heat must be terrible.
Reminds me I have stopped keeping in touch with a number of people during this crisis, fed up of hearing how great the lockdown has been for them. Those with gardens and living in the countryside. "Ooh, the vegetables are doing so well this year and we've finally got round to building that pond, we've dreamt about blah, blah, blah"

We still have one video shop that is hanging on for dear life. I's called Videotheque, in South Pasadena, and it is definiteley the shite - but in the best way possible.

Hi Mary and everybody. Did the Supremes do a version of the clap pat song? That's who I remember but I was 10 years old.

Grow vegetables or become one.

No offence meant. I would be doing the same but hopefully showing a bit more empathy towards those not so fortunate.

Today is overcast and cool, but we will soon be getting a major ass kicking, heat wise.

Hiya Lizzie! I only know Shirley's version, but if The Supremes did a cover, I am on my way to making a 3 of a kind for it!

We had an *excellent* video shoppe. A real treasure. Rent was tripled, and the storefront has now been vacant for *seven years*. Since 56 Up!

The fireman's blind. The conductor is lame.

Hubig - We had Fruit Talk on Jesse Dorris' Polyglot board on Tuesday. You've started the natural sequel.

Yeah, we had a terrific video store called The Film Shop where my friend Jon worked. Stacked to the gunnels with real treasure. Sadly went the way of all gentrified streets. At least it became a fishmonger instead of lying empty for donkey's years.

The carrot has mystery.

Is that the title of your new autobiography Stanley?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Handy Haversack:

There's a theme to this set, but I can't seem to put my hand on it. Nonetheless, I applaud you, Mary!

On a scorching hot day, I saw Tom Waits sitting on a picnic table eating an orange popsicle reading the newspaper. He was dressed head to toe in black - leather jacket, black levis, motorcycle boots. He might be one of those people who have a broken thermostat.

The poor animals are being driven by climate change & habitat loss into our space - may in fact have something to do with our virus concerns - & people have been driven to their gardens. I suspect the inevitable conflicts have been scripted & set up...

Garlic. Rosemary. And salt.

*Should* be back before 3. But just in case -- thanks, Mary!

Thanks Lizzie! Can't wait to read Chris's book. That period in music was full of gods and monsters, and yes, many were close enough to smell.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm doctorjazz:

Awww, missed a good set! Don't know that TMBG kids album, they had another one, "No!", that was non- stop playing in my house and car when my kids were younger (they still play some of the songs four friends, like "Violin")
Hi all!
Avatar 2:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Surely the Ian Dance is beyond twitching & more of an actual seizure (he was of course epileptic)...
Avatar 2:11pm Mary Wing:

Hiya Ken and doctorjazz!
Didn't know that about TMBG, making kids records seems like a good fit for them.
Avatar 2:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

This Left Spine one is interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Handy Haversack:

Well. So. I am come back. And lo. I missed Joy Division. But there are echoes.

Check out "Violin", it's absolutely insane (and funny)
Avatar 2:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Well that didn't stay all Suzanne Vega long...
Is revealed what an interesting song it is in terms of the relation of form & content... I think we'll agree Joy Division were special.

Thought I'd do some quick research on who Shakespeare's Sister really was. Turns out he had 4 of them, including 2 named Joan. All but the second Joan died before their 10th birthday.

Oh there's sax & violins everywhere. Certainly in Shakespeare.

I always loved that line about “and she expressed herself in many different ways “. I sometimes think that Curtis’ doomy persona often overshadows what an accomplished lyricist he was.

I believe Violins was a reference to a TMBG song? ?
Avatar 2:41pm Hubig Pie:

Tremosphere does a lovely, dreamy version of All Tomorrow's Parties
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm doctorjazz:

Violin is a song on TMBG's "No" album, a family favorite.

Considering it came out one year after JD's original version, I would say it was the first cover?
