I just got a text from my cousin about some dude in the neighborhood who put a large penis in Christmas lights on his roof. I'm guessing he's across the street from the guy with the huge Trump banner on his roof. Either that or he thinks Santa is gay and just putting an invitation out there...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Ike:

@Mary, with a small but sharp knife. Last time they were too crispy, close to burnt, because I cut them shoestring-ish (or thinner) size and baked them a little too long. I need to try a more wedge-like shape. One thing that apparently helps is to soak (blanch) them in cold water for 10 minutes before baking.

Was it Two Buck Woodchuck, Mary?

Hi Sem - I love the idea of a pear-in-a-bottle tree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm fred:

@Sem: Pricey stuff
Avatar 1:31pm Mary Wing:

Heh, no, Sem. But I would even buy that if I found it!
  1:32pm David in London:

Sem, your challenge for 2021 is to carve the pear into the shape of a ship.

That distillery's site has an age restriction splash screen, heh. Like no teenager would ever click on "exit site" when asked...

Risk/reward pricing, fred. We lost over 350 of 500 pears in bottled on the trees during a July hurricane a few years back, for example. And let us not speak of fire blight in the orchards.

@Handy: Depends, are they covid deniers? I'd have to balk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Handy Haversack:

They are not exactly denying but are having a motherflipping wedding at Disney World this month *anyways*!
Avatar 1:35pm Mary Wing:

So, to get the pear after you drink the liquor, you have to break the bottle?

Mary, I think they declared bankruptcy when a judge ruled they owed royalties, but I could be wrong'bout that

Ah, I saw The Sunday supporting The Throwing Muses when the album came out. They were set to be absolutely massive, but it never happened for them.

@Fred I was very transparent about it. And, in the spirit of transparency to you all, I waited until everyone else was off the call to make that announcement
Avatar 2:13pm Mary Wing:

I wonder why, David? Did they not want to be famous? They really dropped off the radar pretty quickly after what, three albums?

@Mary wing your right about that my bad
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Ike:

I always assumed The Sundays were just as successful (in the U.S. anyway) as, say, James, or My Bloody Valentine, but I suppose they had a higher possible ceiling that they never hit. I'm sure the UK is different, that strange land where Blur and Oasis were able to get huge, which would never have been permitted here.
Avatar 2:32pm Mary Wing:

Yeah, jn34282, maybe The Sundays just liked making music but hated the corporate side of it? All the promo, stuff, interviews and videos perhaps weren't their thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Handy Haversack:

I wonder what is the mean length of time after the original for the 3OAK covers, in toto. And I guess a standard deviation thereof? Mean of just over 13 for this one so far.

@Mary wing sometimes a lot of that stuff they have to deal with is a drag and would rather not deal with it

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm eki:

Apropos of absolutely nothing, I think I'm pretty good amateur linguistic forensics, and can tell when an internet "unsub" has changed its moniker in order to avoid detection for some reason, because its language and communication style is exactly the same as before. No reason I bring that up at all!

Once in a while, fred, if it is different enough from the original version.

Though, of course, there are certain situations where you have to wonder why it seeks to avoid detection, and what local or cultural violations it got pinned for in a previous life.

Ike, me too. i've called out a few trolls, and other times (like CC) i don't see the point.

me too @Ike/coel. there are even some "sub" entities mucking about
  Swag For Life Member 2:50pm spodiodi:

i mostly don't bother with the most obvious ones (lately) -- this convo brings them glee, no doubt ("teehee! look how i've made them ______!", etc)

Avatar 2:50pm coelacanth∅:

by sub you mean with a "profile"?
  Swag For Life Member 2:51pm spodiodi:

yes, to extend Ike's "unsub" (to save words)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm ɨkɛ:

I stole "unsub" from a shitty TV show, just to mean "unknown perpetrator", not necessarily someone not logged in. What puzzles me are the people who are "borderline", where I can't tell what they're up to, or if they're trolling us or what. There have only been a few of those, but they're baffling.
  Swag For Life Member 2:53pm spodiodi:

i've no doubt some are alts for otherwise legit/accepted/(even wfmu-internal) personas
  Swag For Life Member 2:53pm spodiodi:

again, to which i say a hearty "whatever"
Avatar 2:54pm coelacanth∅:

... yes you're right then. i think some (or one) has created a profile,or several, but more often posts without it, using different monikers
