Touched in the head, fer sure.

Hello, ndbob!

Once again!
  Tue. 11/18/14 6:02pm Dean:

I modified an "I Voted" sticker from two weeks ago with an interpolation of "mi" between the "o" and the "t."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:03pm Jeff Golick:

Touché.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:04pm Doug Schulkind:

@Dean
I think I need to perform algebra to figure that one out.

@Jeff Golick
Mel Touché, the velvet smog?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:05pm Jeff Golick:

It's pronounced TOUCH-EE (i.e., touchy).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:08pm Doug Schulkind:

Tuchas?
  Tue. 11/18/14 6:08pm Dean:

Yeah, I wonder if there's even a remote link from "tuchas" to "touch," but I kinda doubt it. Linguistic, I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:09pm davex:

Tommy Tuchas and his backside band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:09pm davex:

@Dean: Tuchas comes straight from Hebrew for bottom, below.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:10pm Doug Schulkind:

@davex
Preach brother!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:11pm Jeff Golick:

The "he touched me" LP cover image search is always good for an easy larf: s3-ec.buzzfed.com...
  Tue. 11/18/14 6:12pm Dean:

@davex: My dictionary -- well, the one on the 'net -- says "below" = ונטער
Wntʻr, and "bottom" = דנאָ Dnʼá, and "buttocks" = הינטן Hyntn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:12pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey, who the hell was Eva Bartok?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:13pm Gary:

I don't know, but whoever she is, she needs to get a grip!

We in for Grateful Dead this afternoon/evening?
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:14pm glenn:

zsa zsa bartok's sister?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:15pm davex:

@Dean: That is Yiddish. Transcribed that first one should be "unter" and the last one "hintn" or "hinten". Both are the same in German.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Thanks, ndbob. I guess I coulda done that. Tell Dean that the Dead will not be touching down this evening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Hiya glenn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:18pm davex:

I should explain of course that Tuches is Yiddish too, but from Hebrew roots. But this is so off-topic now, I forgot what the off topic was.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:19pm glenn:

howdy doodle do.
  Tue. 11/18/14 6:19pm Dean:

@davex: You said Hebrew, and I completely ignored the guidance. Granted, tuchas is OT.

Re: the Dead, I was only wondering whether we'll hear figural deployments of "touch." Important stuff here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:20pm Doug Schulkind:

This show comes straight from the Torah. I swear!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:20pm davex:

The emmes?
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:20pm ndbob:

I see that Eva was a follower of Subud - wasn't that the religion that led Jim McGuinn to change his name to Roger?
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:22pm glenn:

oh, and speaking of whackos, i see some 26 year old hippie chick wants to marry charles manson.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:23pm ndbob:

Indeed Glenn
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:23pm Jeff Golick:

That photo of Manson and his potential bride-to-be...ugh. He looks, shall we say, unrepentant?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:24pm Carmichael:

Hi Doug and listeners. I prefer the El Touchy.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:24pm Jesse K:

hey Doug!
Programming alert: I'm secretly broadcasting from an undisclosed office at MIT tonight. Don't tell the authorities.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:24pm glenn:

her name is "sun". that tells you all you need to know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:25pm Artie Haywire:

I tell ya, that situation had her fingerprints /all/ over it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:26pm Doug Schulkind:

I'll throw them off your scent, Jesse K!

Carmichael!

Artie!
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:26pm glenn:

could that possibly be willie nelson playing guitar?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:28pm Doug Schulkind:

Nice ears, glenn! Willie Nelson sings duets on two tracks with Timi on this record. If he's playing guitar on that number, it's uncredited. But very much likely.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:28pm ndbob:

I remember this really well
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:29pm Doug Schulkind:

I had Sandy Posey and Molly Bee versions of this tune to choose from as well. But how could I leave Tammy on the editing room floor?
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:30pm ndbob:

I think Wilma Burgess did the original version?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:31pm Doug Schulkind:

Wilma Flintstone (née Burgess)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:33pm Jeff Golick:

Well this seems like good news: www.nytimes.com...

Naturally, I say this in knee-jerk fashion as a woefully under-informed citizen.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:34pm glenn:

wilma slaghoople, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:35pm Gary:

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this all seems to boil down to (a) men askin chicks to touch them and women askin dudes not to touch them unless they "mean" it.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:35pm ndbob:

lol Doug
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:35pm Artie Haywire:

@Jeff - Yeah, I think less diluted bitumen coursing through the heartland is probably pretty good news.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:36pm davex:

@Jeff: Sounds like a good decision, but then I begin to wonder why it was made.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

@Jeff Golick
I guessed that they caught the subway pusher guy, but I'll take a Keystone Pipeline defeat.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:37pm ndbob:

Hmm.. well it will pass in the next Congress anyway - and continue to be shipped by train - I've never seen the Keystone as a major issue - there are far more important environmental issues such as regulating coal-fired power plants
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:37pm glenn:

haha! awesome. that oughta piss off my current right wing canadian gov't.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:37pm ndbob:

though the "job creation" the building of the pipeline will bring is pretty bogus
  Tue. 11/18/14 6:39pm Dean:

Damn, Rob Brown is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:39pm Jeff Golick:

@ndbob: sigh. Yeah.
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:39pm glenn:

oh, totally. it might create a thousand temporary construction jobs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:40pm Jeff Golick:

Plus some clean-up crew work! Sticky!

Gonna follow Johnny Watson out the door...back to my home.
Thanks for the positive touches, Doug.

G'nite, all!
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:41pm ndbob:

well more then that - but only a handful of permanent ones
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:41pm Doug Schulkind:

See you in the morning, Magic Man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:42pm Doug Schulkind:

@Dean
I am a Rob Brown adorer. Played live on my show once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:43pm Doug Schulkind:

Nice write up about this Mike Fiems record: www.aquariumdrunkard.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:44pm Doug Schulkind:

If you can guess the next artist, I'll give you a million bucks. (With antlers removed for safety precautions.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:45pm listener james from westwood:

Somewhat late owing to foraging for food, but happy to hear the big finish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:45pm davex:

I'm guessing Yoko Ono!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:45pm Doug Schulkind:

There goes your nest eggs , people.

Listener James!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:46pm Carmichael:

I'm too late, but I would have said the Tubes' Don't Touch Me There.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:47pm Gary:

I got up from the dinner table to see who this was.

Makes sense, now that I see!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

In just a bit, you will get to hear WFMU's own Chris T, and I don't mean by switching over to his Aerial View show on the main channel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:48pm Doug Schulkind:

@Gary
Should help with the digestion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:51pm Doug Schulkind:

WFMU's great occasional fill-in DJ Sara Jaffe played this on one of her past shows. LOVE it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:53pm davex:

Sounds like an African drummer on a bad phone connection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Chris T, in a blonde wig, is playing guitar here with the Nihilistics live at CBGB, 30 years and one week ago!
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:55pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:56pm listener james from westwood:

In the car to and from the store, I heard snippets of Chris's interview w/ Tony Rettman (sp?), and The Nihilistics came up more than once.
Got-damn, 1984. Was I doing anything this cool? No, I was not. Glad someone else I've come to dig was!
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:56pm glenn:

1984. a lifetime ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:57pm Doug Schulkind:

@Listener James
Tony Rettman's book has an entire chapter on the Nihilistics!

Thanks Doug, that was touching indeed!
Avatar Tue. 11/18/14 6:58pm northguineahills:

Man, thanks for the good touch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 6:59pm listener james from westwood:

It did sound like a fascinating read, either for a local NYC oerson or not.
Happy to have had 1/4 of the healing touch; will hit the archive for the full deal. Thanks!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 7:00pm Carmichael:

High Five, Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 7:00pm Gary:

Great show, Doug! Loved Yoko!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/18/14 7:02pm Doug Schulkind:

Woo and hoo, everyone! Thanks for hanging out with me!
