I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

  Fri. 8/5/11 12:15pm Vicki:

Had Enough Of Horror, Here
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:16pm BSI:

No work and no play. I have no idea what I'm doing.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:16pm Cecile:

Okay, I heard yours and Billy Jam's premium, Bryce. And all I can say is that there needs to be a Fabio/Clay and Bryce/Billy tagteam for fundraiser.

  Fri. 8/5/11 12:16pm Matt:

I know I could look this up, but is this Robbie Basho's son or anything?
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:17pm Cecile:

Taping loops of "There IS a BIRD!" BSI
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:17pm annie:

  Fri. 8/5/11 12:17pm Vicki:

don't take that the work overload reflects in any way in my bank account
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:18pm bennett4senate:

  Fri. 8/5/11 12:19pm hubba:

@matt - he just likes Robbie that much, but I don't think there is a "blood" relation
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:19pm bryce:

  Fri. 8/5/11 12:20pm jk:

I like how the Basho-Junghans is filed under 'Great Hoboes' on the internet (random first hit website).
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:21pm Cecile:

annie, what's the special today?
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:22pm Wild Neil:

Hello room! Clay is so funny...getting male listeners to sing the highest note they can, and females the lowest they can. He is a PILL.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:22pm bennett4senate:

blocka blocka blocka
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:29pm bryce:

all the good numbers, jack
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:29pm Ben:

Is this raga Hindu or Islamic? or is there no distinction?
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:32pm Cecile:

No, Wild Bill, he is a HOOT. Or a PIP. A pill is the opposite of what Clay is.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:35pm bryce:

hey ben! it's from northern india, style of music called dhrupad, probably the oldest form of north hindustani classical music still performed. actually it was kind of nearly defunct till just recently....
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:36pm annie:

lots of seafood and he's unpacking flounder just now..
he specializes in seafood..... across the street is two soups, usually vegan, asian chicken salad, and curry egg salad... meatloaf sandwich grilled in the panini machine. and on and on
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:37pm BSI:

Yes. Bryce. Hell of wonderful sounds. Your show turned me on to the Gundecha Brothers a while back, for which I probably owe you a bucket of gilded kidneys. Or equivalent.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:39pm Cecile:

Annie, that sounds like heaven. mmmm.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:40pm bryce:

do you have a spare MF-104SD?
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:43pm BSI:

For that you gotta do an all-Gundecha show, after which I'll think of some excuse to not follow through, then will hide from comment board in shame for a minimum of three (3) shows. Void where prohibited.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:45pm bryce:

an all gundecha bros show...let's see..... that would be.... 1.2 songs? all right, that's within spec.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:46pm MM customer service:

There may be some delay in processing your order....
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:48pm Ike:

Hey BSI, I will try to venture into the Dark Realm of the Hipsters to see you play tomorrow night at Goodbye Blue Monday. However, they might not let me off the J train unless I exhibit the proper level of irony.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:49pm bryce:

order! order!
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:51pm BSI:

Ike, is it a floppy-hat thing, or more like a manufactured scowl meaning I AM IMPRESSED BY NOTHING? .... 'cuz I can improvise a floppy hat. I can even pierce it for added cred.....
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:53pm Ike:

I've spent so little time in Billyburg that I'm not even sure. I think a trucker cap might do it, but I don't have one. I'll just have to sneak in.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:55pm Cecile:

I would go opposite. If I were in Williamsberg, I would dress like Elizabeth Taylor in the 90s.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:56pm postmanpaul:

Hey Bryce! Hey Commentators! Time to light up a josh stick me thinks.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:56pm bryce:

i'd like ike to dress like an elizabethan tailor from the 1590s
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:57pm Ike:

Hmm, yeah Cecile. That might confuse them so much that they'd drop their Pabst Blue Ribbons right onto the sidewalk.
  Fri. 8/5/11 12:59pm Bushwick:

Williamsburg is SO last week.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:03pm Billyburg Passport Control:

Just show us what's on your iPod, and we'll make a decision about whether you can disembark or we're shipping you back to Squaresville.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:04pm Andy Would Say:

Go to L
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:05pm Elizabethan tailor:

- All's Wool That Mends Wool
- Large Lapels Lost
- Measure for Measure!
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:06pm JT:

Our stylish young bloods are now seen to sport rimless velvet caps in a style that is peculiar. IN1872
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:07pm bryce:

  Fri. 8/5/11 1:08pm Juggalos:

Ike, when you get cast out by hipsters, we're here with open arms my ninja.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:09pm G:

Elizabethan tailor reminds me. I learned a word doing family history. About 150 years ago one of my forbears in England was listed in the census as a cordwainer. That means upscale shoemaker, from "cordoba" style leather. Too bad, because the other branch of my Redgrave forbears are the acting family, who started as pub owners, went into bar game promotion (billiards, bagatelle), then into theatre promotion, and then into acting.

Yeah, I'm from a family of cobblers and I'm Natasha Richardson's fifth cousin or something. That and a MetroCard gets you on the L train.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:12pm still b/p:

Cord Wainer would be a good acting name.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:13pm Cecile:

Cordwainer Smith was an old-school SF author.

This sounds very much like the Necks, Bryce.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:13pm bryce:

juggalos, enroll! http://bit.ly/gZDvJq
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:15pm hamburger:

  Fri. 8/5/11 1:16pm Polly Amory:

Cuddle Parties on ecstasy, da bessssst <3
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:18pm Baba SunDial:

It's 1978 and I'm listening to Henry Flynt while shrooming and gazing at the sun-dappled trees. Ann Arbor.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:19pm postmanpaul:

It's Field Day this wknd over here, featuring Omar Souleyman, Ariel Pink and Sun Ra Arkestra to name only three.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:21pm FAQ:

What if Newt Gingrich is at my Cuddle Party?
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:22pm bryce:

they still stay ON. http://bit.ly/mUSCQQ
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:22pm postmanpaul:

This would make a fine wfmu outside broadcast!
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:24pm hamburger:

that does sound cool pmp :)
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:25pm postmanpaul:

Weather permitting, hamburger.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:25pm northguineahills:

Haven't heard tis Henty Flynt, awesome!
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:26pm Wild Neil:

Woops, my BAD. Clay is a real GAS, a PIP, a dude, a real character!
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:28pm Polly Amory:

They've had cuddle parties in NYC. I've been on their mailing list for maybe three years.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:30pm GM:

I once caught a a cuddlefish in my pajamas.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:31pm George of Troy:

This Flynt is bad-ass.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:33pm Polly Amory:

Flynt piano is kewl, but for some reason it makes me think about tinkling.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:34pm Baba SunDial:

Yes, just like the effect of sun-dappled leaves.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:37pm Baba SunDial:

Holy impermanence, BryceMan! You've outdone yourself.
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:58pm Cecile:

just had the BEST chicken sliders with red curry sauce. Kudos, Gastrotruck!
  Fri. 8/5/11 1:58pm hubba:

  Fri. 8/5/11 1:59pm hubba:

oh, and nice...
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:02pm BSI:

Waiter! Where's my sun-dappled cuttlefish?
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:05pm hubba:

oh my... you are on fire.
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:06pm bryce:

apologies to coworkers
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:10pm BSI:

Just a thought, but isn't it more accurate to say that one is IN fire?
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:10pm FAQ:

If I am on fire, should I still cuddle with partymates?
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:15pm bryce:

Everyone, including you, has a choice about who and how to share being on fire. That means that there may be people who say ‘No’ to your invitation to catch fire.
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:18pm George of Troy:

Will the Facilitator be dressed as an Elizabethan sailor?
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:19pm Cecile:

cuddle parties? I went to a few of them. But we called them "drunk nerds at a SF convention."
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:19pm still b/p:

I come here every Friday for Burning Man.
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:20pm Po' Lee Amory:

If my cord wanes, will the facilitator help me get it back up again? If so, am I supposed to tip?
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:29pm hubba:

Time to roam the land of pimento loaf... Bryce, everyone, have a pleasant pan drip... will imagine you all in moderate health.
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:30pm david:

  Fri. 8/5/11 2:30pm On Behalf of CCO:

As soon as they lift off from the surface, the CCO will play a Brandenburg Concerto straight through flawlessly at double the scored tempo. Just because they can.

  Fri. 8/5/11 2:30pm fancylouie:

8 track... you didn't mention 8 track...
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:32pm seang:

Work is for Saps! Everyone quit your jobs now! Do it!
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:39pm Rory:

Enjoying the sounds today.
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:42pm G:

Diggin' the adagio-in'
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:47pm bryce:

  Fri. 8/5/11 2:49pm Ike:

I don't know, Bryce. This sounds exceedingly normal. What happened? Somebody put Wheat Thins in your bhel puri?
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:50pm bryce:

keep em guessin
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:50pm Wikipedia, fwiw:

@Ike: "A largely self-taught musician, [Satoh] came to the technical elements of music not from the usual perspective of western proportions and balance of harmony, counterpoint and orchestration, but rather from a deep understanding of the philosophies of Shinto and Zen Buddhist beliefs. This background reveals a music that delights in the world of infinite spaces and suspended time. His works are fragile in their clarity and simplicity, but are not simplistic or facile. His work represents a kind of sculptural minimalism infused with the lyrical sense of Romanticism."
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:52pm Ike:

Horse-puckey. I prefer Bryce's answer. Makes more sense, less pretentious.
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:53pm Rory:

Ike, that's the reason why i like wfmu. The dj's play anything and everything.
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:56pm bryce:

i do really love somei satoh. was wishing earlier i'd had his early piano record here. so beautiful....really dense, too, the complete opposite
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:58pm J.D.:

  Fri. 8/5/11 2:59pm Wikipedia, fwiw:

The quote sounded to me like a statement of the kinds of choices a musician typically makes, but as we all know not everyone cares about what musicians or other creators actually have in mind :-)
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:59pm Ike:

Mileage varies... I dig this Udo K. track. I just used it to subconsciously drive away an accursed realtor. (I refuse to capitalize "realtor.")
  Fri. 8/5/11 2:59pm bryce:

  Fri. 8/5/11 3:01pm Wikipedia, fwiw:

shrink his minotaurs, bryce!
