Re: Als wäre die Musik im Schaltplan des Radios

I sang the Cage as the processional at a friend's wedding. Incidentally, I prefer Andrea Fullington on this album to the recording on Gann's site. He's probably heard it, given what he says in his post, but I think it's not Uptown at all.

I found Tussle only okay when I saw them. E.A.M.B. is great, though, and you'd have a swell time at The Eagle, Ben. Just your sort of place.

Ben, I've just dug up that Fullington recording for a listen, so I'll send it to you if you're interested.

7: He said PST, which is UTC-8. This must be a roundabout way of saying he's broadcasting at 3-6 p.m. Alaska Daylight Time. Unfogged is presently on UTC-6.

I have already recorded my thoughts on that matter. Kinda disappointing—I wasn't very into the new material about the last human being, & whatnot, and Carla's efforts to make sure everyone knew who This Heat were got on my nerves (I increasingly can't stand her). And they didn't play many of the songs I wanted to hear. But many of the songs that they played were fantastic. I liked what they played from the first and third albums, for instance.

Unfogged is presently an hour later than I am, on Mountain Time, and Alaska is an hour earlier. Pacific Standard Time is not the same as Alaska Standard Time; assuming that Unfogged really is UTC-6 and Alaska really is UTC-8, PST must be UTC-7.

I really liked what they opened with, which Boots told me was a Carla song. Mostly I thought they were awesome, but perhaps not for me.

If they opened with the same song in LA as they did in SF, yeah, it's a Carla song ("Angle of Repose").

Hey, OT, will I regret dressing up to go to a concert by myself?

No, why would you?

Going to concerts (and even more, movies) alone is really underrated.

This is true, but it's also true that if going alone is your usual MO, it gets pretty wearying. Dining out alone is a bridge too far for me, though.

That is pretty funny, Josh. I don't know if I have the heart to go there and read it. But bitching about ludicrously outdated health advice from the 70's is kind of a hoot.

OK, I did. This is pretty hilarious, on that Obama's half-sister reported that he gave her a copy in the 70's:

Good for him, I guess, but I suppose I was raised in a more traditional America where boys don't give their sisters books that discuss their private anatomy.

Well, I was raised in an America in which parents' names began with the same initial. And and America in which we had baby turtles as pets. I was raised in... oh. Oh shit, by "an America" I meant my own individual family.

Ugh, the comments are annoying (in a fairly not-too-upsetting astonishingly stupid sort of way).

FWIW, though, AWB, OBOS is hardly ludicrously outdated health advice from the 70s; it's gone through several editions and is still in print. And it's not really as though basic anatomy has changed that much in a few decades, labiaplasty notwithstanding.

I have the 90's edition, and it's pretty fucking absurd. I'm glad it exists, but I personally found it entirely unhelpful.

Here's my question, though: If God doesn't exist (that is, if there is no such thing as absolute moral truth), why shouldn't the woman have sex with her brother brother give his sister a book that discusses her private anatomy.

You'd think RedState would cite the parts about women getting together and using mirrors to look at their own cooch instead of a very low-key passage about women researching health issues.

thanks, i liked a lot the breaks, nice voice and funny ads
i missed the beginning so don't know how it was from the beginning
what i listened was like cacophonic, but not distracting if the right volume
i liked Under pressure, then a piece with a mouth harp, and that short piano music
