Hello, Therese! I noticed it's Orthodox Easter today when I saw a bunny in the backyard. I wish it was a rabbit in a hat with a bat.

@Ivan--spring is feeling pretty damn good this year, no?? I think back to February...that was some deep wintry bleak right there...but now! Birds! Sunshine! Sundresses! Flip-flops! Seeing friends again! Yeeeeaaaahh...
  Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Mike From Brooklyn:

Hello Therese! Listening live for a change. Loving the Fruit Bats & Nada Surf, and other stuff too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm efd:

I love the drum fill that's coming up in "Edge Of The Universe"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm efd:

... unless it's only in the live version that was released as a single??
Avatar 6:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Good drums anyroad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Therese:

@efd- was that it?
Avatar 6:42pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

@K8 Feeling good compared to February, and feeling good compared to last spring for other reasons as well. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm efd:

yes! phew! (although I think I do like the single version better)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Therese:

Good! I never want to deprive anyone of a good drum fill!
Avatar 6:45pm Joe B:

@efd - both were singles! studio version was the b side of nights on broadway (i think) and then the next year the live version was an a side

hello
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm B R M:

Said it before, I'll say it again: need Jane Weaver to play a show NYC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm chresti:

Someone just mentioned the artist Phew, on another comments board, had no idea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm efd:

interesting, thanks @Joe B! I have a promo 7" of the live version, don't think I realized the LP version was also on a single.
Avatar 6:48pm K8:

@Ivan--Absolutely...I feel so grateful to be feeling some things change pandemic-wise, at least here. It's going to take more time globally...oof. Glad you're feeling better!
Avatar 6:52pm K8:

@BRM--I'd go see Jane Weaver here in NYC!!! Also, at this point, I'd go see pretty much ANY live show in NYC...haven't really done that yet besides random encounters with pop-up shows on sidewalks...and the virtual shows...but I'm craving some crowded bars...and craving not feeling freaked out about crowds...

Usually bunnies under the deck, dodging past the dogs and through the fence.

Also, chipmunks about every f-ing where.
Avatar 7:05pm Marshall Stacks:

I encountered a coyote while I was riding my bike the other morning.
  7:05pm Bob fromPoughkipsee:

that song you just played by primal scream reminded me of BTO
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Krull Sagan:

Ok Therese, since you asked, I am living in my little vintage trailer by a creek on Cape Cod at present and I crossed paths with a ding-dang OTTER! Foxes too.
  7:05pm Stuart in Port Washington:

The bunnies were here this morning. They tend to crash come mid-morning. We have lots of โ€œrandyโ€ squirrels but they are settling in for the evening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm chresti:

Occasional coyotes. Oh, and parrots!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Therese:

an OTTER?! I'm dead, @Krull Sagan...

@Scott67- did you buy it for $1.50?
Avatar 7:07pm K8:

Oh the fauna of Greenpoint, Brooklyn...do birds count? We have a lot of birds...saw red-bellied woodpeckers this week and rose-breasted gros beaks are back! Then some very frisky squirrels, feral cats a-plenty, and those possums...the occasional raccoon in the back yard...many many more of them down next to the creek. Many, I would love to see bunnies or a fox or a freaking OTTER around these parts...although someone did spot three dolphins in the East River near G-pt this spring...

@K8, I hear ya. I miss crowded bars and I miss sitting at the bar of an empty bar. Champagne problems though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm luka:

this smokes but also i heard the Carpenters version earlier today which also... smokes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Therese:

@luka I am going to seek that out!
Avatar 7:11pm K8:

@Ivan...ah yes, Ivan...the champagne problems...that's a deceptive drink in its pretty flute glass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Therese:

@K8- there are occasional seal sightings on this side of the Hudson.
Avatar 7:11pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

Iโ€™m really liking this song!
Avatar 7:12pm K8:

@Therese...yeah, over here too, the seals...once in a while. When Handy and I were last at WFMU dropping off goodies for marathon, we saw loons in the river, which was pretty cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Scott67:

So Krull, when do I come visit mate? Sounds idyllic.โœŒ๐Ÿ˜Žโ˜€๏ธ

Thx @Therese for playing some Gil Scot Heron! Really captures this Sunday early evening.
Avatar 7:18pm K8:

We lost Gil Scott Heron too soon...he was amazing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Krull Sagan:

Scott, any time! I have over SIXTY square feet of living space, can you believe it?! So plenty of room. Hoping the, uh, how you say, โ€œmozziesโ€ dont take too much of an interest in me this summer tho, here by the creek
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Krull Sagan:

K8, Iโ€™ll see if I can arrange a meet up with this otter neighbor next time sheโ€™s down in The City
Avatar 7:26pm K8:

@Krull--that would be amazing! I love otters...we don't see them very much around here. Also, Handy says hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Scott67:

Krull, I can be your mozzie bait mate. I don't get a reaction to the bite anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm chresti:

Krull, a 5x5 sq ft space with tall ceilings?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm luka:

holy cats what is this
Avatar 7:30pm Ivan from Woodbridge:

Trippy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Krull Sagan:

What up, Handy, you Dandy?!
Scott, itโ€™s a deal- I imagine your mozzies to be like 2ft long & about 3 kilos
Agreed Luka- love this!
Haha Chresti, almost; I can fully stand up, so tall-ish

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Krull Sagan:

Wendy, you up in Brattleboro? I was there for a month working and loved the town, such a lovely corner of the world I thought; saw Book of Kells at the theater if I recall, and found one of my fave sci-fi art books at a vintage shop across the street
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Krull Sagan:

Slug, heya! Richy, ditto
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Maybe Pearl's? Edgwick? 5 Spoke Creamery?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm neil quarantino:

Therese, are you thinking of Bobolink Dairy? I believe they were in Warwick but moved to Milford NJ
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Krull: I sure am! It is a fabulous place, and I'm happy you thought so, too. The vintage shop is Twice Upon a Time, and the theater is the Latchis, a restored art deco building that is truly stunning. Come on back when this stupid COVID is over!
