I love this song! Grabbed this album when you first played it, Scott.

I am so jealous of their view of the Shard.
  3:38pm dave sustain:

I've got a good view but I need a hearing test apparently
  3:38pm Polyus:

I didn’t realize that is what they call that one skyscraper in London until just now.
  3:39pm NikiA:

'They've Got A Good View Of The Shard' repeats a mantra-like overheard phrase about the tower corporate skyscraper, a building Tim describes like "big sleeping monster from another planet that looks as if it might shoot a laser into the sky and ignite the atmosphere". - Cafe Oto

Yes, The Shard is the building in London that, depending on the angle of the sun, can melt cars parked on the street.

Hubig: I didn't smoke weed in highschool, and it was an emotionally traumatic time in my life, but I didn't want to graduate. I knew the horrors of the adult world was waiting, and I definitely wanted one more year of the freedom of a car without the pressures of the REAL WORLD.

They made me graduate anyway. They didn't want me there another year!

Showgirls was fantastic - sex scenes shot as murder scenes. Krys, I think so - just depends on what kinda band it is. I'm not sure what kinda band it is...
Avatar 5:06pm Jeff Moore:

As this (clarinet I assume) opener played, I enjoyed the stretched time as I listened to the first four notes, and didn't know if they'd turn into a rendition of Auld Lang Syne or something swingy / Klezmery.

Then the fifth note told me it wasn't ALS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm McGroovey:

Yes, Showgirls is a good band name. I can't decide if it should be all-women, or all-men .... Women, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Webhamster Henry:

This band is the soul of 2020: bluster, swagger, disaster, false starts, false notes, coughing without soul, and lots of flashpots and water effects.

@mb, DJFCS is just a guy in his room making mashups - often the source material is even more obvious
Avatar 5:19pm Jeff Moore:

@ami: lang <-> long

`The poem's Scots title may be translated into standard English as "old long since" or, less literally, "long long ago",[5] "days gone by", or "old times". Consequently, "For auld lang syne", as it appears in the first line of the chorus, might be loosely translated as "for the sake of old times".'

Really like what I hear from Lewsberg. Mark E/post euro punk/John Cale Velvets... Who cares?! I hope to see them appearing with the Liminanas, should the world stop ending.

@ami: amazingly beautiful movements, both in design and in their level of finish and decoration.

A crisis was closely averted at WFMU this evening when skeleton Scott Williams agreed, somewhat at the last moment, to engineer efd's Wednesday night show.

Blatant bribery was credited with the breakthrough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Handy Haversack:

Hiya, Stanley! Playing poker with three Scots and three Edinburghians without those threes overlapping perfectly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm mariano:

Handy: Ever watch Ricky Jay giving poker demonstrations? He'd let other people shuffle the deck, let them swap hands, etc, then always wind up with a royal flush.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Stanley:

Good luck, Handy.

"Bleak Benchmark and the Party Girls"
"Bleak Benchmark and the Viral Party Girls"

I like the first version, but it would be cool to get Virus or Viral in there, but then it doesn't sound as good to the ear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Carmichael:

@mariano, Ricky Jay is my favorite illusionist. His take on the cups and ball shtick is astonishing. Easily findable on Youtube.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Scott Williams:

Mo! thank you muchly. Hey everyone, great news: Monica is now doing a segment on Wake on Fridays!
