I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

I attended a funeral yesterday, which maybe is why this line jumped out: "Such incidents of course go far beyond the dictates of custom, and yet at no time are people more bound to follow custom."

Good afternoon Mayuko and listeners

A reading assignment? Oh no, I'm behind in today's lesson already...!
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:03pm Mayuko:

@james You already skimmed all the way through to the funeral scene?! Proofreader's speed, I suppose!

Dig it.
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:05pm Mayuko:

Hello my radio family fred! P-90, you can skip it it's basically just some people died, as usual for the JP literature from that time period, haha.

Hallo Ike!

Finally today I will decide the music for my funeral
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:08pm Dave B:

I recently added Oshoshiki to my Plex library.

And then in a weird twist of fate, my friend Tomomi sent me a letter from Japan telling me her father passed away, and that she won't be able to send birthday or new years cards for a year of mourning.

What's proper protocol? Should I send a note of condolences?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:09pm Dropof Goldensun:

Greetings Mayuko and listeners!

sorry Ososhiki.... typing with fat thumbs

I'm hearing a little Bach mixed in there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:14pm fred:

I read a Mishima book back in college, but had trouble finishing it. I don't even remember which one it was
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:14pm Mayuko:

@Dave B Been wondering if you could add some Tora-san there in addition to Ososhiki. THAT is the real gem of Japanese art!!!
I'm not the best person to ask about social protocols but I think a note of condolences is what you're supposed to do... Mochu-mimai or something it's called...
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:15pm Mayuko:

As Mishima writes, "A death is always a problem in administration" indeed!
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:15pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, Dropof and melinda! Thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:15pm fleep:

The title of the story kind of tips it, so I saved a bunch of time by just reading the title.
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:17pm Mayuko:

@fred He can be pretty ridiculous, probably that's why you didn't finish.
  Sat. 7/7/18 12:18pm P-90:

Not skipping a Mishima. Reading now, while listening, music and words make sense together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:19pm listener james from westwood:

@Mayuko—Heh, the timestamp was when I finished! I just copied that line in case I spotted more than one to comment about here. Fiction I usually force myself to go slowly b/c I proofread and edit so little of it!
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:19pm Mayuko:

Hi fleep! He's good at titling his stories... I've forgotten most of what he wrote but I remember the titles, haha.
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:21pm Mayuko:

@P-90 I'm glad! That was how I was listening to this record over and over this past week because it reminded me of this short story.
  Sat. 7/7/18 12:23pm Dave B.:

Thanks Mayuko! I will do that. I’ll be adding more to plex soon. Just got a bunch of Hotchcock

Good afternoon, Mayuko and the Vertigo Village. My ice cream didn't fare well in the Garbecue heat. If I served it at 9AM, it wouldn't have been all melted. I guess I need to bring more ice or a freezer along next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:26pm fleep:

Melted ice cream and a straw is its own separate pleasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:27pm Dropof Goldensun:

I prefer my ice cream in it's solid state!

"Hey everybody! Who wants peaches and cream?"
Yeah, that may have worked.

Hello Mayuko. Death and paperwork. No escape.

@Ken - How about Peaches and "Herb"?

@Dropof glad you dig! I had been wanting to play that album for a while but couldn't find a spot to squeeze it in til today.
  Sat. 7/7/18 12:44pm Alessandro from Italy:

I know your shows very well, Mayuko. I was impressed becauseyou were the first girl to offer uninterrupted This Heat track "Metal"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@fred - I had a very nice time. I thought it was great. It was hot and uncomfortable by early afternoon, but a few clouds rolled in around 3PM and improved things. Lots of good food and meeting FMU personalities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:49pm fred:

This is a very nice soundtrack to read that Mishima story by
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:51pm Mayuko:

@Alessandro oh, thanks! I just get too excited when listening to This Heat dunno how to stop it, haha.
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:52pm Mayuko:

@fred Great! That was the intention today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 12:52pm Brian in UK:

You have to be bold to play long instrumental tracks. Ah Freeform.

hi Dropof
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 12:55pm Mayuko:

@Brian This Heat is a safe bet since they don't lose intensity even when it's a long track. But yes hurrah for Freeform Radio!

i figure if people disrespected my wish to have no funeral on my behalf then they'd at least be expected to play "i feel free" by cream.

@Dave B, just had a Goldfinch eating at the bird table. The fledgling Blue Tits are learning how to feed outside of the nest as well.

Not many Swifts this year.

@Brian - the Blue Jays and Red Tailed Hawks have been known to duke it out in my neighborhood - Upper West Side Manhattan, just off Central Park.

We've had some crows locally in Bergen County. Vocal ones. Nice to hear.

Hello Mayuko and all! We've got mockingbirds and mourning doves in Williamsburg. Somehow appropriate for this show.

Next time i go to japan i need to either make or find a field recording of the Yaki-imo truck. That song is the best
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 1:15pm Mayuko:

Hi david, thanks for tuning in! The way mockingbirds sing sounds often a little too proud, maybe that's what's appropriate for Mishima-inspired show, haha!

Welcome, rw, and Sem! Glad to have you here!!

Never too late, Fox! Happy to have you here!

Just in the middle of reading Perfidia by James Ellroy. Based on the days after Pearl Harbour and the effect on Japanese folks in Los Angeles. Powerful writing.
  Sat. 7/7/18 1:20pm Dave B.:

Back in the 90s there was a mockingbird on the roofs here that would sing the car alarm song. I kid you not... at the end of the song, hed do the chirp of someone shutting it off and a back flip

Ah Pataphysique. The answer to imagined questions. Thank you Alfred Jarry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 1:23pm fred:

I just finished the story, though I was tempted to bail out before the end. I liked it at first though. Not my kind of writer, I guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 1:23pm Brian in UK:

We have some Peacocks near us. They do make a racket when trying locate each other. Nothing subtle.

i've seen/heard videos of mockingbirds doing that. they're amazing!

Hey Sem, still got the buzzing on my computer, need to resolve this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 1:28pm fred:

I saw Anne-James Chaton and Andy Moor last month. Good show, but not as good as earlier ones. I don't like how the voice's intonation matches the words on this track
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 1:28pm Sem:

Hi, BiUK. I can barely read you over the buzzing on your computer...maybe @fred has an idea?

Scotland-bound in mid-October, will you still be the laird of all you survey, esteemed Salopin?

@david d I MUST watch that video when I'm done!!!!!
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 1:36pm Mayuko:

@fred We don't have many crows here in NY it seems. Tokyo is basically a city of crows so it took me a while to used to not having them around much.

Crows can be really loud, especially a few feet from my bed. But I loved seeing them play on the playground slide downstairs. Sadly, the slide was removed a few months ago
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 1:40pm Mayuko:

@fred Crows on a slide?! That's so cute! They're smart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 1:42pm ♪ke:

@Fred@12:31, I thought the Garbecue was a blast this year partly because a random super-enthusiastic WFMU fan who had never been there before showed up and raved energetically to Rob W. about how good his show is. He looked totally startled (Transpacific Sound Paradise doesn't get much love sometimes). She and some other people got me talking so that's a little unusual.
  Sat. 7/7/18 1:47pm Rickwaukee:

I have no idea about what's popular or selling well so am wondering are movie soundtrack albums even a thing anymore, besides Disney kid stuff? Or is that something left back in the 70s 80s?
Avatar    Sat. 7/7/18 1:48pm Mayuko:

@Rickwaukee As long as Morricone Island continues on WFMU, movie soundtrack IS a thing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 7/7/18 1:49pm fred:

@Mayuko: Yeah, they'd fly to the top, slide down and take flight just before reaching the bottom. There didn't seen to be any point in this, that's why I call it playing. Maybe they saw kids doing it and thought they'd try it
  Sat. 7/7/18 1:51pm Rickwaukee:

They used to be huge revenue for the movie/label conglomerates - did a La La Land soundtrack make a blip?
