"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.)

TDK60, Knormalish went to the same place we did around 1 PM and there was no line -- avoid opening time, and maybe it will be short?

Also, Kate and I are going to morphe''s garden on Tue. next week. See you there?

"The Chicago Tunnel Company was the builder and operator of a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow-gauge railway freight tunnel network under downtown Chicago. It inspired the construction of the London Post Office Railway."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am YETI BOB:

It was built in the early 20th century ... and abandonded ... and subsequently completely forgotten.
Avatar 9:24am John Allen:

hey folks, we need a goal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am Acid Cazh:

My fiancée and I are arguing over that last track,"Trusted Environment."

I say it sounds like softcore porn soundtrack.

She says it sounds like an jazz band at an airport bar at 7:30pm trying to sound sexy but failing.

Anyone else have thoughts?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am YETI BOB:

While working on the Kinzie St Bridge, pilings pierced the tunnel and it flooded. The water went straight into to all the basements in Chicago that the freight service used to service.
Avatar 9:25am John Allen:

Acid, what if i told you your both right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am YETI BOB:

Billions of dollars in damage. Really crazy story. The building owners didn't even know that this tunnel was there until water started pouring through long-shuttered gates.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am PortsmouthJay:

JA: the goal should be $943 -- seems that's what you need today! 👾
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am Handy Haversack:

For a single pledge of $943, all will be revealed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am David (in London):

CYB - I now feel inspired to write a song called 'The Great Chicago Flood', in the style of 'The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down'.

No reason we can't both be right!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am Handy Haversack:

JA, can you commit to revealing all the secrets (of, you know, JAZZ, but also whatever else) if we hit $943? I think we can incentivize this. The people want to know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am YETI BOB:

"Avoid 2 and 4". Ooops, I spilled the beans!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am YETI BOB:

it's OK, there are other jazz secrets that only JA knows

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am luka:

we've replaced glenn frey with folger's crystals. let's see if they notice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am Handy Haversack:

@johnc, you have to pledge $75 for a DJ Premium, which the JAZZ shirt is. If you wanted to pledge again to make your pledge = $75, then just drop Joe McGasko a line to say you want to add the JAZZ swag. Or, samewise, if you pledged $75 but missed that option, drop him a line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41am Handy Haversack:

(That is to say, with the first option, pledge to make your total = $75 and add in the notes to the office and/or write Joe an e-mail explaining how it happened and ask to get your JAZZ swag!)
  9:42am johnc:

Thank you Handy! Will do!

I can make that joke as I refused to go to my speech therapy classes in 2nd grade Brooklyn Catholic School .. being IN the outsider group gives joking ...

Wonering about the origins of Arcana, Indiana???

They kinda just briefly slagged them off as lame prog in an overall package review centering around the OHSEES.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21am YETI BOB:

@Tim: I just dug out the October issue - "the sound made by a load of fusion-loving music store employees tinkering around with a new shipment of gear before the boss shows up."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am YETI BOB:

"only flashes of excitement to be found", etc etc. They love the Brigid Dawson record though (backed by Sunwatchers) - I've gotta check that one out

@Sphere and YB - that's the type of bad review that I think "this make me want to check it out".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am YETI BOB:

@morphe': The name Arcana is likely derived from a Latin word meaning "secluded". (via Wikipedia).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am YETI BOB:

@sphere: I think The Bent Arcana wasn't druggy or proggy enough for the Wire reviewer. Right before the bit I quoted, he complains that it is "toted in its press release as a homage to progressive rock from days gone by. Yet it does not give off vibes of the intimate late night, drug-fueled and wonderfully ponderous studio explorations we associate with bands of this ilk."

What would happen if Roger and Brian Eno were trapped in a room with Eddie and ALex Van Halen? My guess is that Alex and Eddie would frequently say "Sit down, Waldos!"

@PR: I think Twitter is pretty bad but I don't think the character limit is the source of the problem. It's the whole environment, the "re-tweeting" and "following" and "trending" that amplifies stupidity

Social media isn't the problem — it's the monetization of social media. The companies benefit from "engagement" — and nothing drives engagement more than anger-driven mob mentality. Back when Twitter was profitless it was far less toxic. Same with Facebook.

What Acid Cazh said at 11:54. We need more nonprofit social media. And nonprofit media in general. Small local newspapers need to all or mostly go to a nonprofit model instead of dying out.
