The most awkward moment I ever had in jr high, was when I wore my mom's perfume to try to try impress a cheerleader (she was goth) at a football game (we're still good friends). I was clueless about girls until ..... uhmmm, let me get back on that calculation....

What side of the Atlantic you reside, biscuit=doughy buttery leavened bread product, you're in North America. Biscuit = cookie you're in a different continent.

Ohhh this Romy one is one of my new favies from 2020!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37am coelacanth∅:

right, ngh; but also i've got the impression a biscuit in the deep south here is not like what i know, not soft and squishy.
am i wrong?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am diciassette:

Ungh ❤️
  12:38am Ryan:

Southern biscuits are dense AF
Avatar 12:38am northguineahills:

@Ryan: Joy Division was the only bumper sticker I ever had, and as an undergrad, I was a noise undergrad, so having a pop band seemed odd to my musician friends.
Avatar 12:39am northguineahills:

Southern biscuits around here are fluffy, especially if white gravy is involved (I've made my own veggie white gravy w/ biscuits before)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40am coelacanth∅:

Ryan that's what i thought
Avatar 12:41am northguineahills:

(But I grew up in Florigia, which is the weird Deep South) (used to make said biscuit's for brunch in Brooklyn at home, and brunch parties).
Avatar 12:43am northguineahills:

Everything about this state is weird, and not in an Austin or Portland weird. Even the most liberal town I've lived in (Gainesville), is an anomaly surrounded by rednecks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am coelacanth∅:

yeah i think florida is different than rural mississippi in many ways. a lot of people don't even think of florida as "the south"... even though, duh
Avatar 12:46am Bri The Beatnik:

Ahh yes, the person who turned me on to Joy Divison, my first crush
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46am coelacanth∅:

(rural mississippi -for example; "deep south")
Avatar 12:46am northguineahills:

North of Orlando (and pockets near Lake Okeechobee), and the panhandle are very deep south. Gainesville is the exception. Once you hit Orlando southwards it mostly changes culturally!

but in the early 80s there was Pat Duncan (who was on all the way into the 00s) and Paul Cavenaugh, who was more playful and than Pat. and threw some political reggae in too. and Diane "Kamakaze" goes back that far

  1:10am Ryan:

Oh, coela, you are now putting it in context. I didn’t start listening to FMU until about 98 (I was 15). Now it makes sense that you would have first heard joy division on FMU
Avatar 1:10am Bri The Beatnik:

You’re probably the longest listener in the room Coel!
Avatar 1:12am northguineahills:

Diane Kamikaze was the second wfmu dj I heard back online in 1998. I used to use my office after school (uni) and use their internet by myself to listen (my own at home would cut out after a few second).

(Monica was the first)

FMU has always been the shit

...and Phillippe? mariano? a long time,no?
Avatar 1:14am Bri The Beatnik:

I discovered Wfmu last year, my teacher was telling my friend ( who happened to be the guy who got me into Joy Divison) about it and told him they’d play his band on here
  1:14am Ryan:

Was Diane the zorro theme? Where she would stop talking perfectly when the knife chop sound effect hit every time?

@Ryan: Yes, and Yes.

@Bri: I read an article in The Wire that said WFMU was streaming ( I was at UF). couldn't get it to work at home, so, I volunteered to stay late alone at the office just to listen. I was blown away (the formerly decent college station was sold to Clear Channel) I also got into my friends' pirate radio at the time.

Damn, missed Erasure. When I worked for the Dept of Commerce, the work xmas gift I got from boss, was when he allowed us to pick a cd (he probably got from the bargain bin), and there was an Erasure CD)

I have whiskey, but I know better! And I support you too! I'll just be drinking gin.

Diciassette that was almost a haiku and it was beautiful
Avatar 2:12am northguineahills:

I once saw JD (from Le Tigre) was djing, but at a hardcore lesbian club that didn't allow cisstraightmales. Luckily, I had a bunch of lesbian friends who vouched for me. I explained, I was just there for the music, and I wouldn't cause trouble. After 30 mins, the manager finally let me in. It was a great night, and got to hang out w/ JD.

Oh fuck this song is unreal

Good grief if I'd only spent a little more time on it
Avatar 2:13am Mon Amie:

lol i have a story too - i saw jarvis do a performance at the whitney as relaxed muscle, and it was around halloween and he gave me a handful of chocolate as part of the performance and it was the greatest moment ever. except i lost the chocolate in the backseat of the cab ride back to brooklyn :(

ambient music is how I got into avant garde/noise/improv.
Avatar 2:50am northguineahills:

linguistic studies is important as it gives better subjective understandings of epistemological understanding of "reality".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51am diciassette:

There are not very many words in Cantonese, so they have to rely a lot on context and particles and metaphors. I think there are a lot of expressions involving tofu and where you should put it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51am diciassette:

But I think I love it.
  2:53am Ryan:

There’s a sample in here from the dancehall “if I was a rich girl” and that shit was UBIQUITOUS when I was like 12
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55am coelacanth∅:

right. i think the single-syllable cantonese word for "curd that guilos think we all eat" also means "stick that tofu where the sun don't shine" - depending on context.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56am diciassette:

Isn't it wonderful!
  2:56am Ryan:

Mon Amie- thank you so much for another amazing show and for being a bright spot in this bleeeeeeeak year HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Mes ami(e)s- HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I like saturdays with you guys :) thank you all for being you!
