Yeah, Philo opted to work w/ just 2 others (out of around 75) today, tomorrow and Monday. Saves vacation days he'd otherwise be forced to use, and so much nicer for him to start and leave earlier plus the relaxed atmosphere.

@Sem: of tastes and smells remembered, yes! I only spent a total of 4 days in Morocco myself, but quite an eventful and memorable 4 days.

@kat:This Christmas I've been giving people homemade preserved lemon, speaking of Moroccan cooking. Tried it?
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:19am Cecile:

And Juvenilia isn't from 1984 - it's actually the name of a Flying Nun comp that came out in 87 and was reissued in 88 by Homestead over here. I, of course, never got my shit together to buy either. It is all their 84-85 stuff though.
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:20am Cecile:

Sem, I've had Afghan preserved lemon in their lemonade. It is the color of iced tea and amazing.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/26/13 10:20am Joe McG:

@Cecile: My dates are always the original dates for the music, whenever I can find it. I have the original LP on Homestead.

I got Ron Burgundy's autobiography for Christmas. It is pretty insane.
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:22am kat330:

@Sem: Actually that preserved lemon was an optional ingredient in a couple different recipes I used as my guideline. But no, didn't make / include.

Joe, this has been a quite nice set.

Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:24am Cecile:

Irene, I still have to thank you for turning me on to Clare and The Reasons. I don't normally like music like that, but they are pretty singular and talented.

Are the Servants a new group, or is this a reissue?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/26/13 10:28am Joe McG:

@Cecile: Old Cherry Red folks, second LP never came out (this one!).
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:31am Cecile:

Oh, ok.
Wow, the benefit of time is really cool.

We young uns in the 80s were privy to a lot of garage rock and soul unknown to most at the time through reissues, and you guys are finding a ton of indie rock and alt-pop I never knew existed and I was buying a shitload of records at the time.
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:32am Cecile:

I mean 60s garage rock and soul.
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:37am dale:

the problem with 90s singles is that they were usually cd singles. still a biggish hole, i spose
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/26/13 10:37am Joe McG:

@Cecile: Yeah, it's a banner time to be alive for cool reissues of all kinds. 2013 was a great year for music, even if a lot of it was old!
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:38am Cecile:

they were, dale, but then you had people like Sympathy, Sub Pop and In The Red putting out great vinyl singles. Remember cassingles?
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:38am Cheri Pi:

Captured Tracks have captured my wallet for 2013. Cecile didja see that Goner reissued 3 Cosmic Psychos LPs?
Avatar Thu. 12/26/13 10:39am Cecile:

Joe, the amount of killer soul they are unearthing is ridiculous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/26/13 10:39am Irene Trudel:

Thanks @Cecile! Yeah, I really like what Clare and the Reasons do and I'm glad to have turned you (and everyone) on to them. @Joe, I didn't realize Alan had mentioned me. He's a really sweet guy and incredibly prolific. Lots of great stuff from Mr. Cynic.

@kat, Happy Boxing Day to you and everyone too! Also, a happy birthday to @KP, a little birdy told me.

Cheri, I have the first one, but to me it doesn't take off until the last three songs. But it's been years since I listened to it. Is there a better one to check out?

Thanks, we have rice for some reason. And beer. Normally add chocolate to the mix and more homemade chili relish at the end.

Is Vortex 2 derived from the tune from the Midnight Express movie?

@Cecile ! Chili with macaroni! There's a long-lost dish. Aka 'beef-a-roni' where I'm from.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/26/13 11:44am Joe McG:

Oh, earrie, I have to say that beef-a-roni is one of my least fondly remembered meals from childhood!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 12/26/13 11:47am Carmichael:

Sounds like lotsa yous prefer the Cincinnati chili style, aka chili and some kinda pasta. Out here, it's just a big bowl of chili, with some cheddar, onions, avocado and perhaps sour cream. and some Habanero Sunshine to kick it up a notch.

I need to thank my parents for NEVER feeding me Chef Boyardee. Gross. They did feed me those hot dogs with cheese filling a few times though, and also scrapple.

Scrapple! Now that brings back memories! :S

To stretch her household food budget dollar, my mom would make us Kraft pizzas and use cut-up hot dogs for the topping. Usually on Sunday nights when Disney was on.

Real home-cooked chili mac is tasty. Beef-a-roni is dreadful.
