Everybody! Thanks being here without the grace of my usual lead-in to sweeten the air

usually i just fall asleep before CBF when there's no Flash Strap lead in, but tonight i just cranked up the Dead C and i made it
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:02pm Little Danny:

Dead C is good honest wake-up music. Thanks for being here, Hyde!

Hi chums!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 10:08pm coelacanth∅:

my internal clock i guess.
...the truth is that i'm usually listening right from the beginning but use (consciously or otherwise) the changing of the guard as a signal to do a few things, before settling in again; so my checking in is delayed

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:12pm hyde:

aw man, i forgot to use the diacritics
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:15pm Little Danny:

@hyde: you're förgiven. Diacritics, they only slow us english-keyboarders down, man
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 10:16pm coelacanth∅:

hyde i thought it wasn't necessary in spanish (hola) ...i said hi in portuguese. i was going to say "bonjour" but didn't know about the "and"!
  Thu. 9/21/17 10:16pm MrFab:

'Sup y'all!
Lil Danny, what is Kris Holmes doing? Twice recently I've tuned in to his show and his show was a no-show. Doug's gonna make him go stand in the corner if he continues with this behaviour.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:18pm Little Danny:

@MrFab: he's had his hands busy with his recent move to San Antonio and outta west Texas, a transition I will never forgive him for.

Also, hello sir!

LD @10.16 i'm on a laptop that has easy access to those marks. if i were on my other i would've forgone the whole multilingual idea!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:19pm hyde:

my high school spanish and college portuguese has only qualified me to throw around the term diacritics, well, willy-nilly ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 10:21pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:21pm melinda:

I always forget where the diacritics are on my keyboard.
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 10:22pm northguineahills:

There's you are, LD!

Oddly enough I heard Phil Ochs on the Burnsey Vietnam doc, I don't think I've heard in a doc before...
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:23pm hyde:

@melinda at work i sometimes need to use the umlaut, so i know the keyboard combo for that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 10:23pm coelacanth∅:

i got kicked out of spanish class. i couldn't grasp it and didn't want to get help after class. i took a spanish course as an adult and grasped the rules but never learned that many words. (& never ended up going to peru as i had planned)
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:25pm Little Danny:

Which Ochs's track, NGH? Also, would you recommend said doc? Also, welcome!
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 10:26pm northguineahills:

The obvious one, "I ain't marching anymore".
  Thu. 9/21/17 10:27pm Doug Schulkind:

Little Danny, Sir, you are tearing the roof off the sucker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

melinda if it happens to be an ancient macbook, you'd hold "alt/option" then a vowel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:28pm melinda:

I had several years of Spanish in grade and high school but never became fluent. I remember a lot of words but I was bad at practicing speaking or seeking opportunities to immerse myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:29pm melinda:

But you have to remember the vowel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:30pm melinda:

Actually I have a new Kanex keyboard I haven't done diacritics with yet. But since I don't remember the macbook settings there's nothing to re-learn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

at one time i lived with my sister (still) and was going out with someone who both were majoring in french. i picked up some phrases but never learned the rules. i really like french (unless it's spoken by a snob!) and regret not making a point of learning that from them.
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 10:35pm northguineahills:

It's good as it shows the evil and duplicity of American foreign policy then and before, and it goes back and spends 90 minutes on the French colonization/war/American involvement up to 1954. It pulls off scabs, much more incisive then I'd expect for Ken Burns, it shows a lot of pain and bullshittery on both sides, mainly the US. As a student of history, there are a few tidbits I've learned. It's a LONG history doc, but it shows the U.S. warts an all. (more warts then expected)
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 10:37pm northguineahills:

When I met my wife, most of the Spanish I knew was from watching futbol en espanol. Unfortunately,, her and her friends speak perfect English, so, my spoken Spanish is still stunted. Now, that I've moved to FL, understanding spoken Spanish has suffered (and I used to be able to watch Spanish movies w/o subtitles).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 10:38pm coelacanth∅:

that whole set was Stellar, Danny
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:40pm Little Danny:

highest praise, Doug - thank you!

Lot's of Paris, Texas sndtrk has been played lately on WFMU. Nice!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:41pm Little Danny:

Thanks Coel! I'm pleased but embarrassed by these kind words
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:42pm Little Danny:

Yeah, definitely, NGH. This track in particular, which features Harry Dean's own endearing vocal
  Thu. 9/21/17 10:43pm MrFab:

Harry Dean Stanton released a really nice album a few years back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 10:44pm coelacanth∅:

it can work the other way round too, ngh...my sister (whose house i stayed at 2-3 days/week) had a nanny/housecleaner from brasil who really wanted to improve her english, and i decided it was more important for her to get the english down, in the us, than for me to learn portuguese, in the us. i only learned a few things - though i developed quite a fondness for the language.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:45pm hyde:

this is beautiful and all & i'll miss all my friends but i need to go to sleep. ciao and sayonara and all that rot
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:45pm Little Danny:

Thanks for the review of Vietnam, NGH - very lucid

Thanks hyde, see ya around!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:51pm Little Danny:

@MrFab: I'm now curious. Also, how would you describe his album?
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 10:52pm northguineahills:

@coel: In Mexico, her friends and relatives preferred to speak English w/ me. Unfortunately, her parents didn't speak a lick of English, so, the first time I was stuck w/ them for a few days, was awkward, until my spanish finally kicked in. I'm exceptionally good at cursing in Mexican Spanish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:52pm melinda:

Thanks for Cancion Mixteca. I never get tired of hearing it.
  Thu. 9/21/17 10:53pm MrFab:

Harry Dean's album? Like you're sitting in his living room and he's talking to you and playing some of his fave old Country/folk songs for you on his acoustic. Really - they left in his between-song comments
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 10:54pm northguineahills:

I thought I heard Jerry, and I'm unaware of New Riders of the Purple Sage. I'll go back to WFMU corner, where I belong, for not knowing that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:55pm melinda:

The last time I checked the Harry Dean Stanton doc wasn't available on Netflix but maybe it is now, must look into it.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:55pm Little Danny:

Thanks for the info MrFab. That sounds great, actually!
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 10:55pm northguineahills:

What everyone said about Harry Dean Stanton, the interludes are amazing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:55pm melinda:

Green Rocky Road is one of my favorite folk songs. Loving this set.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:57pm Little Danny:

They're great, NGH! First two albums fit nicely in with American Beauty and Workingman's Dead. And your ears are acute - that was indeed Jerry - lots of overlap with the two groups
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:57pm Little Danny:

Me too, Melinda - and this must be my fave version of 'em all. Love Fred Neil so much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:58pm melinda:

Me too!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 10:59pm Little Danny:

@melinda: do you have any fave versions of "Green Rocky Road" I should look into?
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 11:02pm northguineahills:

I love Workingman's Dead (I have it on vinyl).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 11:02pm melinda:

Hard to choose, but I like Peter Paul & Mary's version (is that lame?) and Dave Van Ronk's. Terry Callier does a nice one too.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 11:02pm Little Danny:

@NGH and @MrFab: Harry Dean also had one of the most beautiful and expressive voices in film
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 11:03pm northguineahills:

T C's is called Promenade in Green.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 11:05pm Little Danny:

Thanks, Melinda. I know and love Callier's version!

What?! archives???

They'll blow your mind my friend!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

so, what's it a room full of cassette tapes that i can rent?
  Thu. 9/21/17 11:26pm MrFab:

THis is great, reminds me of Criswell in the Ed Wood movies

Marion Brown then Sun Ra!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 11:29pm coelacanth∅:

i had to scroll up when i saw Peter,Paul & Mary. melinda, i've been called lame for liking PPM; i don't care! that shit is in me. to the bone.
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 11:29pm northguineahills:

I dig quite a bit of PPM, coel.... (for some reason).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 11:33pm coelacanth∅:

- and about that Harry Dean Stanton album - i now know i need to hear that! (Thanks MrFab) that description reminds me of a bit of a Bill Broonzy recording Kurt Gottchalk played this morning.
Special stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/21/17 11:40pm coelacanth∅:

ngh, PPM's first and 3rd ("in the wind") were maybe my first step away from the 2-3 children's records in the house (which always bored the fuck out of me!) -when i was 3-4. i cannot be objective, truly, but i can definitely identify what i like about it. i'll never know how i would've felt about it had it not been what my family sat around the living room and sang along with at such a young age.
Avatar Thu. 9/21/17 11:54pm northguineahills:

I never heard PPM until the late 90s, found a few thrift store records. But it hit me at the right time.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/21/17 11:54pm Little Danny:

@MrFab: You need to check out those Sun Ra volumes, sir! (I believe that's what you were referring to.) www.nortonrecords.com...
