Hey Nick did you get my email? Nice tunes so far tonight.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:10am mariano:

Hi Nick and Veronica and everyone! Some pretty intense percussion, digging it very much.
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:11am Veronica (the other one):

Ha! I thought I was the only Veronica on here ;
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:16am Nick Name:

Hello Veronica / Hello Veronica

hey mariano
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:17am Veronica (the other one):

I've actually never known a Veronica in real life. My alias was taken from Veronica in the Archies. LOL

The only Veronica I knew of for many years was the character in the Archie comics.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:19am coelacanth:

greetings Nick and others
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:21am Veronica (the other one):

@Ken - glad you remember Archie comics...I was totally in love with those & collected them as a kid, and then loved that Archies song "Sugar Sugar"
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:21am coelacanth:

i named my second car veronica! (the first one i bought outright.)
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:21am Veronica (the other one):

Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:25am mariano:

Anyone remember the weird evangelical Christian Archie comics? The guy who created it had a religious experience and did a run of religious-themed issues, really a trip: comicsalliance.com... My grandparents got me some of them when I was a kid, but even then I was like "Huh?"
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:28am Veronica (the other one):

That's hilarious. Never heard of those.
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:33am Veronica (the other one):

Woah, check out the history of the artist of those Christian Archie comics, Al Hartley: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Hartley
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:41am Veronica (the other one):

Hey, how do you add links to URLs? Do you have to be logged in with a profile?
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:42am mariano:

Yeah, Al Hartley was a trip, interesting life. As for links, mine pasted in as a live link, not sure what the deal is though, ie if it's some setting on your browser or something.
  Fri. 7/15/16 12:46am rw:


Veronica is a great name. Why don't more parents name their daughters Veronica?

that answers that question.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:53am mariano:

You're right @rw, it's time for a Veronica renaissance, it's a great name! One of my friends is named Veronica Otto, which in Italian is Veronica 8, very sci fi.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:53am Veronica (OG):

Okay, I created a profile...wfmu.org...
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:55am mariano:

Great graphic, @coelacanth: I'm working on a logo right now and I'm trying to make use of negative space in kind of the same way, the way the black part of the duck is empty space (I know, that last bit out of context sounds like a total stoner thing to say!), I'm trying to do it with one of the pillars of the Brooklyn Bridge though.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:56am mariano:

God those Mahavishnu guys can JAM!!!
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:56am coelacanth:

the only Veronica i ever met before i named my car Veronica was an older sister of a kid i knew. she was mean and i didn't like her, but for some reason my 11-year-old self was attracted to her!
...maybe subconsciously that's how i felt about that $150. car.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 12:59am coelacanth:

mariano i know what you mean and i'd bet your design will rule!
(...i don't know why i googled "fire breathing duck", to be honest; but i'm glad i did!)
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:01am coelacanth:

Dayam! i Like this baritone!
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:04am Veronica (OG):

Veronica renaissance!
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:05am Dean:

One of the best shows I've ever attended, Full Blast.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:06am coelacanth:

ha! nice, Veronica.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:08am BEAVO:

Full blast was intense
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:09am coelacanth:

'looks like i missed any opportunity to see full blast. (d.2006)
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:11am Dean:

I think it was '05 when I saw them. It's disappointing that they're no longer touring.
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:12am Dean:

However, I did just see Brotzmann with John Edwards and Steve Noble. Yow. Solid, amazing performance.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:12am coelacanth:

...although Brotzman still plays out, no? i've never seen him at all.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:13am Veronica (OG):

Jinx - you both posted about Brotzmann at the same time!
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:13am coelacanth:

ya! i got to keep my eyes open for him.
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:14am Dean:

Yes, he plays constantly. Along with Edwards/Noble a vibraphonist whose name I don't recall. A great show.
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:14am Nick Name:

hello all - thx for checking in
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:15am Veronica (OG):

I missed Brotzmann recently, but saw him with his Octet around 15 years ago. One of the best concerts I ever saw.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:16am coelacanth:

what becomes of the jinxed...
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:16am Nick Name:

Dean: John Edwards is an excellent bass player...
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:18am mariano:

@coelacanth: thanks for the words of encouragement, hopefully it'll all work out!
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:18am coelacanth:

i've seen some amazing shows; but i've still got to be a bit envious sometimes!
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:19am Veronica (OG):

@coelacanth ha! you've lost since you spoke first en.wikipedia.org...
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:22am Dean:

Edwards and Noble were both stunningly good, completely familiar and at ease with each other's work. Brotzmann surrounds himself with great musicians. I've heard him as well with the Tentet, including Hamid Drake, Ken Vandermark, Toshinori Kondo, and others. His shows always energize me.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:23am coelacanth:

mariano, maybe you'll make it your avatar for a minute when it's finished! i'm curious.

Veronica! damn it! is someone going to come here and punch my arm now?
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:24am Veronica (OG):

Or you can owe Dean a soda.
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:25am Dean:

Here's some representative Full Blast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLNiGvu-2qs

I like it when folks owe me a soda!
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:25am coelacanth:

i'm always impressed (via video) with Brotzman's humility among fellow musicians. -he's just committed to the outcome, not exalting himself.
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:26am Dean:

Looks like they've played post-2006, too!
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:27am Veronica (OG):

I can tell just from watching the first 30 seconds of that Full Blast video I'll love it...will save it for later watching. Thanks.
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:29am Dean:

Awesome, other Veronica! As it turns out, I'm heading to Chicago in two days. Was hoping to have a chance to hear Vandermark or somebody from his group, but really it's not likely. I will visit the revived Jazz Record Mart, though.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:30am Veronica (OG):

So much great jazz and free improv in Chicago...
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:32am Dean:

...so little time.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:32am mariano:

@coelacanth: I'll try to get a usable version cranked out by 3. In fact using it as an avatar would be a good test run because like any logo or icon it has to be recognizable at a very small size, which is the real challenge: lots of things look great at normal size, but when you shrink them down you get a blob.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:33am Veronica (OG):

Digging this Tashi Dorji
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:33am coelacanth:

yes, i have to save that video for the weekend.

- i ought to get to bed now. long day ahead.
...Thanks Nick. Brilliant program as always!
tchau peeps
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:33am Veronica (OG):

later alligator
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:34am coelacanth:

aw, mariano. i'll miss it after all?
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:35am coelacanth:

p.s. Dean, your soda's in the mail.
  Fri. 7/15/16 1:35am Dean:

I'm thirsty here, coelacanth. Thank you!
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 1:37am mariano:

@coelacanth: Should have something usable by 3... gonna be up all night though, one of the joys and banes of my existence!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/15/16 2:03am Santos L. Halper:

Great stuff tonight Nick, cheers!
  Fri. 7/15/16 2:07am Nick Name:

have a good weekend coelacanth
  Fri. 7/15/16 2:08am Nick Name:

thx , glad you are enjoying Santos L. Halper
  Fri. 7/15/16 2:26am weird:

I used to use the user name coelacanth, but that definitely was not me unless some fight club shit is going on.
  Fri. 7/15/16 2:29am weird:

what are you working on mariano? I do my best work at night.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 2:35am mariano:

Oh, hey @weird! Working on a logo for a company called Old City, they want a pillar of the Brooklyn Bridge to be the main visual next to the name, and they want to see a version where it's an angled shot so you can see some depth and perspective. The trick though is to do it with just black on a white background (or vice-versa), as simple as possible, but which is still recognizable at a small size. Lots of playing with angles and rotations in Illustrator.
  Fri. 7/15/16 2:38am weird:

oh yeah i have made icons in my day. it turns out I am more of an imax-resolution billions of colors kinda guy, but I think that pixel art is definitely a legit thing that is worth everyones time if you want to be well rounded as a visual artist. If there is any point to being a well rounded visual artist is another question.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 2:51am mariano:

I have mad respect for icon makers; anybody who can make a tiny, one-color silhouette of something fairly complex that's instantly recognizable to the eye knows what the hell they're doing. I'm trying to make a lot of the negative space do the work. The trick also is for it not to come out too cartoonish, their logo right now was made by someone who obviously just took a clip art of the bridge and slapped it next to the name, really embarrassing.
  Fri. 7/15/16 2:53am weird:

haha I feel ya, you dont want to get all panerra bread
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 2:54am mariano:

And yeah, my default mode as a designer is heavy saturation and contrast, layer upon layer of grunged-out textures in several different blending modes, and lots of tiny detail. Minimalism is a real challenge for me, kind of like the Zen meditation of design, trying to silence a hyperactive mind.
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 2:56am mariano:

Tell you what though, this is one of the best shows for working on design projects, thanks as always Nick, and great chatting witchall!
  Fri. 7/15/16 2:59am weird:

well check out some of my stuff, it's quite saturated and contrasty and layered and blend modey and detailey ;) http://imwilmoth.tumblr.com/
Avatar Fri. 7/15/16 3:00am mariano:

Oh cool, I definitely will, thanks for the link, will get in touch with some of my stuff too!
  Fri. 7/15/16 3:02am Nick Name:
