Hiya from Cleveland!

coelacanth, I may have been quicker on the World of Echo playlist but yours was funnier.

Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:13am JakeGould:

That first “Shocking Blue” album is really amazing.
  Mon. 12/7/15 12:13am PMD:

Love it all so far. Darn it. As I need to go to bed!
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:14am JakeGould:

Whoops! I meant to say, SECOND album. FORGIVE ME PLEASE!
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:15am coelacanth:

well, the first one with Mariska,right?
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:17am coelacanth:

...and i like "scorpio's dance" just as much.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:21am BadGuyZero:

"Antiques Barn" is my favorite Glen Campbell song.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:22am BadGuyZero:

Billy Carter's Lockjaw Lager

i wouldn't have minded "gentle on my mind".

As I recall, Billy Beer was created at a time when collecting beer cans was quite popular.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:23am BadGuyZero:

Come play with us, Therese.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:26am coelacanth:

i used to collect cans (& bottles)...'never did get billy beer. i was very casual about it.
when i moved out of my mother's apartment i took 5-600 bottles and cans to a friend's wrap around porch,lined them up and left.
someone eventually took them all.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:27am BadGuyZero:

Maybe they're paying tribute to Sha Na Na and Lola Falana with their name.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:28am coelacanth:

...and it's the first way -"shah-na" . (she's a friend of mine)
  Mon. 12/7/15 12:29am PMD:

She's the friend of my ex's sister. Is that 2 or 3 degrees of separation?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/7/15 12:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

On your week off, Therese, you missed something here. We were all set to celebrate Shuggie Otis' birthday last Monday. Maybe the next time it comes around.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:31am coelacanth:

hahaha! something like that!
...now i wonder if i ever met your ex's sister...but probably not.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:31am JakeGould:

Billy Carter hawked the beer, but drank PBRs in private. oldbeerads.blogspot.com...
  Mon. 12/7/15 12:33am PMD:

She lives in New Palz
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:33am coelacanth:

that's interesting. maybe that admission had something to do with the beer not selling!
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:35am JakeGould:

Everybody be playing “The Cure” this week. That and “Beat Happening.”
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:38am coelacanth:

PMD i may have met her then!...but not necessarily via Shana. She and i aren't that close,and i haven't seen her much since she moved north of new paltz.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:42am coelacanth:

that's odd that "plastic passion" appears on a "b-sides and rarities" album. is the boys don't cry album rare? (...i kinda hope so!)
  Mon. 12/7/15 12:43am rw:

So... it's "shah-na" but is it "fa-lah-na" or "fa-lay-na"?
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:44am coelacanth:

it rhymes; like "havana banana" only an "ah" sound!
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:45am Therese:

the Boys Don't Cry album is rare enough that we don't have it on our library! I had to take it from the Join the Dots box.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:45am coelacanth:

(okay,well not quite...)
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:45am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: The issue is—as I recall—is that “Boys Don’t Cry” was a U.S. rejiggering of the U.K. “Three Imaginary Boys” and some singles. Since “Three Imaginary Boys” has some of the wince-worthy stuff Cure fans are baffled by. So it was a pseudo compilation of sorts.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:45am BadGuyZero:

@coelcanth: "Boys Don't Cry" is the U.S. version of "Three Imaginary Boys" with an altered tracklist. "Plastic Passion" isn't on "Three Imaginary Boys."
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:45am BadGuyZero:

JakeGould types faster.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:47am coelacanth:

i know; i have both. but Thank you!
i guess when i die i'll leave my boys don't cry album to wfmu.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:50am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: You meant to say, “i know; i have both. *sips tea, smokes clove cigarette*”
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:50am JakeGould:

Yay for Lush!
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:51am coelacanth:

Jake i think there's just 1 wince-worthy track on 3 i.b. and their cover of foxy lady is fantastic! so is "meat hook",in my opinion.
...and yes, that's what i meant!
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:53am JakeGould:

“Foxy Lady” is not what “The Cure” is about. *slams copy of Camus’ “The Stranger” on the coffee table*
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 12:55am coelacanth:


*head low,almost inaudibly*: "i know."
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 1:02am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Your share at the patchouli CSA is at risk now.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 1:16am coelacanth:

hem,excuse me Jake but i'm the head chairperson of the patchouli csa so, i don't think so!
  Mon. 12/7/15 1:23am sara:

it's kind of crazy and maybe a little sad how she ended up being used as a tea party shill. but that's her opinion it seems.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 1:33am coelacanth:

i didn't know that sara. it's sad; but then i'm sure there are many people i respect from a musical perspective that i'd consider idiots on political,socio-political,environmental, etc. issues.
on one hand i'm glad i usually don't know; on the other i'd sooner steal than buy music from people that i think are part of the problem!
  Mon. 12/7/15 1:36am sara:

well a lot of years did pass since the vu days she had a bunch of kids and grandkids and maybe a phone company job. don't know what else she went through.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 1:40am JakeGould:

@sara: The more I read and hear and learn about anyone who creates anything the more I am of the opinion that honestly there are 100% no saints out there creating anything and some aspect of their off-stage persona might be wretched. Which is to say: I appreciate the art.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/7/15 1:40am brendanswfmuaccount:

I actually saw Joanna Newsom tonight in Boston. Great performance.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 1:42am coelacanth:

yes; and it's not like she was the voice of velvet underground.
...i find particularly interesting a quote i just read:"I have come to believe (not just wonder) that Obama's plan is to destroy America from within".
maybe,maybe not; but that's basically how i feel about both bushes and reagan.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 1:43am coelacanth:

brendan i'm jealous.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 1:44am egal:

For every Pete Seeger, there's a Ted Nugent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/7/15 1:47am brendanswfmuaccount:

It was great. She did a little over an hour and then three one song encores (don't get me started). She did a lot from the new record. I wish she had more time for the "hits" but you can only play so much in 90 minutes when half your songs clock in at eight minutes.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 1:48am coelacanth:

exactly egal.
  Mon. 12/7/15 1:59am sara:

i like after hours a lot too, that's why i looked into what she was up too. i still like how she played drums, i guess it just feels like she might be easily duped, or not everyone is a band leader, we all have our weaknesses in the end
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/7/15 2:10am Tome:

great Show Therese once again Happy ( mild so far ) December !

Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 2:23am coelacanth:

we're fragile creatures. i cut my thumb tonight on seaweed!
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 2:26am BadGuyZero:

A few days ago while making breakfast I accidentally dropped something I was about to put it in a heated skillet. I tried to catch it and in doing so one of my fingers made contact with the skillet. Now I have a nice brand/scar running about 1/4 the length of my finger on the knuckle side.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 2:26am JakeGould:

I used to get paper cuts all the time. Worked in a college bookstore and then at a small book publisher. Constant paper cuts. Ever used those pasty glue tape dispensers with the dirty water? Anyway, that’s why I always carry band aids in my wallet: PTSD from paper cuts.
  Mon. 12/7/15 2:36am sara:

paper cuts are the worst
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 2:37am coelacanth:

BGZ that's the kind of thing i do. my reflexes are quick but still somehow dysfunctional.
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 2:59am JakeGould:

If anyone here meets me in person and has a minor cut, hit me up for a band aid.
  Mon. 12/7/15 3:00am sara:

hope the scar fades too
Avatar Mon. 12/7/15 3:01am coelacanth:

Thanks Therese!
