Hi Shangri-La. It feels tropical in L.A. right now.

Just want to warn you, I'll be coming in right behind you today.
Avatar 6:05pm shangri-lounge:

Hi Franco, I hope you've made yourself an AC paradise.
Avatar 6:05pm shangri-lounge:

No problem, Don! I'll be timely.
Avatar 6:09pm Don-O:

I plan to play a little Mardi Gras (as they canceled next years MD) and some Don Joyce to confuse the Room.
Avatar 6:12pm shangri-lounge:

Very cool. Sounds like a nice followup to GeorgyGirl's recent program.
Avatar 6:14pm Mr Fab:

Aaaah, so nice to hear one of my fave raves from the ‘lab. Been a while.
Avatar 6:16pm Mr Fab:

And howdy hi and hellos to all! Been to busy to be around these parts much last couple days. Nice to finally chill here in Shangri’s lounge.

Oops, Kris Jensen is next!! Tehehe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm notsoKWYET:

several of these songs were on my beach playlist this year...
Avatar 6:24pm shangri-lounge:

O damn, am I reading yer mind? Do we share a brain?
Avatar 6:25pm Franco Twinkie:

Is this a dedication?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm notsoKWYET:

very much so..... playing france gall, stereolab, and Arthur Lyman all in the span of few songs is very similar to what my show on mixcloud was lol
Avatar 6:26pm shangri-lounge:

Yes, to my cat who has been begging to have his food dish filled all the day long.
Avatar 6:28pm Franco Twinkie:

What kind of cream rinse do you use?

What ever do you mean, Franco? I've had men killed for less.

Hi! Recently joined a FB group called "Cats are assholes" very funny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm notsoKWYET:

@Domenic... they really are
Avatar 6:32pm Franco Twinkie:

Curious minds want know, The effect you have achieved has put spots before my eyes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm notsoKWYET:

Peak asshole happened when I was babysitting my friends two Sphynx cats.... and I forgot to fill up the water dish when I got home even though there was still plenty of water... So when I filled it up like an hour later, the one came over, drank as much as he could and then came and barfed it up right beside me lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm notsoKWYET:

Two Arthur Lyman's in one show? This is the place to BE
Avatar 6:33pm shangri-lounge:

Oh, yes! This playlist has a lot of Technicolor Paradise tracks in it. You know that Little Danny of The Cool Blue Flame helped to compile that, right? I only just found out a couple months ago!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm notsoKWYET:

What the actual fuck ... how did I not know about that show?
Avatar 6:35pm shangri-lounge:

Yeah, you gotta check it out. Have you seen his Exotica Project website? It's perfect for nerding out.
Avatar 6:36pm Mr Fab:

Yes, LiL Danny originally posted a lot of those tracks on his old blog Office Naps, which how I originally knew him. A lot of WFMU djs, esp here at Sheena’s, came out of the turn-of-the-century blog scene before we stepped up our game and came here.
Avatar 6:36pm shangri-lounge:

Ah, it's simply glitter-dander, Franco!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm notsoKWYET:

Yea ... I know Office Naps --- TBH i haven't really spent any time on the give the drummer some stream
Avatar 6:39pm Mr Fab:

The Butt Hello: when cats jump up, turn around, and raise their tails for you.
Avatar 6:39pm Domenic:

Oh that Danny. Office Naps. That was a great effort.

Let us not talk of sphincters when we can dwell in the sound of simulated sparkles, shall we?
Avatar 6:44pm solo mon:

shangri, i got my cats a "food puzzle" because of their insistence on access to kibble.
Avatar 6:45pm shangri-lounge:

Solo Mon, I was literally looking them up on Amazon last night.
Avatar 6:46pm shangri-lounge:

Otto is rotund-ish. Maybe he needs one of those for the afternoon. I can't increase his portions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm chresti:

I love Cool Blue Flame. Hi shangri!
Avatar 6:47pm shangri-lounge:

Hey, Chresti!!
Avatar 6:49pm Mr Fab:

Shangri @6:40 LOL!

Notso, the exotica-heavy “Explorers Room” followed by “Cool Blue Flame” would be perfect Sheena’s shows. Tho much of the Drummer stream shows, dealing as they do with jazz, classical, avant and world musics, are pretty highbrow compared to our shenanigans. WFMU has all your needs covered.
Avatar 6:50pm shangri-lounge:

i've actually never listened to explorer's room. i need to do a deeper dive.
Avatar 6:50pm solo mon:

The puzzles work, you just cant start with a difficult one. I made that mistake, thought my cats were geniuses (whose children aren't) well they are dum dums I got the simpler one. and its fine.
Avatar 6:52pm shangri-lounge:

yeah, i mean. i guess it makes sense to start at a lower tier. you don't wanna put em thru too much anguish.
Avatar 6:52pm Domenic:

WFMU does! Not a regular listener to the "main room". or the other channels..should branch out.
Avatar 6:52pm shangri-lounge:

(...unless you do...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm chresti:

Mr. Fab, run if the tail starts shaking forwards and backwards.
Avatar 6:55pm Domenic:

Someone gave me a DVD of WMFU's "Cake & Polka Parade with Fatty Jubbo". I don't have the words..was something!
Avatar 6:56pm Domenic:

Nice that a place exists where folks like "Fatty" could spread.
Avatar 6:57pm shangri-lounge:

What year was that, Domenic?
Avatar 6:59pm Domenic:

looked it up 2006-2013. Archived programs are still there it seems
Avatar 7:00pm shangri-lounge:

Haha, interesting. Just curious!
Avatar 7:04pm Domenic:

Jubbo has some interesting names of episodes.. wfmu.org...

Avatar 7:10pm shangri-lounge:

I had to get this one outta my system. I'll play it again in a year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Rich in Washington:

I LOVED Fatty Jubbo's show! I miss it sorely!
Avatar 7:11pm Don-O:

I'm in a corner of AZ, so quarantine doesn't sound so romantic.....unless you get all the toilet paper.
Avatar 7:11pm Domenic:

its OK to play the classics. Its always new to someone..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Rich in Washington:

He's also a wonderful painter and musician. I plan on featuring a lot of his music on an upcoming episode of my show.
Avatar 7:13pm Mr Fab:

“Cake and Polka Parade” was the best-est. i remember waiting for a new episode...and waiting...hell, i’m still waiting. Another blogger-turned-FMU jock.
Avatar 7:14pm shangri-lounge:

Where'd he go?
Avatar 7:15pm Mr Fab:

He never said, but presumably focusing on his painting and band The Lovely Little Girls.
Avatar 7:15pm Domenic:

Ya just checked his profile out Fatty Jubbo is Gregory Jacobsen. Artist and musician (nothing my lady will let me hang on the walls LOL) Glad your featuring him Rich soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Rich in Washington:

Yes, mainly focusing on his paintings and sometimes Lovely Little Girls, who put out three wonderful albums, but are unfortunately unable to perform (usually in Chicago where he/they're based) or tour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Rich in Washington:

he also put out a weird solo album under his own name called The Ritualistic School of Errors which is as whacked out as his paintings.
Avatar 7:21pm Domenic:

(Sylvie Vartan.. Just love these French singers...)
Avatar 7:22pm Franco Twinkie:

Mr. Fab, how do you remember Polka Parade, or was that some new show? My Dad use to like it. It was on KTLA in the 60's. They had a Farmer John robot dummy in the corner that the dancers would swirl by. I was very conflicted by it as a child.
Avatar 7:22pm Ursula1000:

hey Shangri-La! loving the show
Avatar 7:24pm shangri-lounge:

Ahhh thank you, Ursula!!
Avatar 7:25pm Franco Twinkie:

Lat night I watched the episode of Tom Jones and Janis Joplin. It was so wigged out! And of course one had to speculate - did they....?
Avatar 7:27pm Mr Fab:

No Franco, we’re referring to an old WFMU show “Cake and Polka Parade.” Don't remember your show, but i saw enuff polka dancing when my grandma would watch Lawrence Welk.
Avatar 7:28pm Franco Twinkie:

I figured.
Avatar 7:30pm ironybread:

So I'm an L.A. resident (well, Burbank) but I didn't grow up here. How many of us weirdos grew up here

In a fight between the beat of the strings and the beat of the traps, who would win?

I moved to Burbank from Idaho at age 25. Came here on a dare, really.

I WAS a born and raised L. A. guy until 2004 and last year. Too complication and stupid to go into on the last twp parts.
Avatar 7:38pm Franco Twinkie:

I can only speak for myself, Irony. But I would say more than you know.

Even your parents?! Me and most of friends families all came from that mythical land known as “ Back East.”

My parents met at Belvedere junior high in East L.A.

My fam moved from NYC a year before the stork brought me, flying over the Hollywood sign and dropping me into my crib.
Avatar 7:47pm Mr Fab:

Hey, there’s the volume!
Avatar 7:47pm Franco Twinkie:

So, you were conceived in L.A. but barley. Or were your parents in the mile high club?

I was born in Santa Monica and well, grew up around the South Bay.
