Beats mismatched. New mystic moods. The International Style. Pressed and dressed. Queasy listening. New ways to fail. More is more. Backroom room tones.

Morning Jesse and all Glotals.
Avatar 3:26am Jesse Dorris:

How's everyone doing this week?
  3:31am Diezel Tea:

Doing meh, physical therapy 3 times per week. Haven't been finishing two tracks that have been sitting there for half a year. Better question - how is Alvin doing?
  3:34am Hi from Holland:

Aloha! Vague Throbbing Gristle vibe... nice.

Just reading the news, looks like they are about to change our weekend!
Avatar 3:46am Jesse Dorris:

Diezel! Sorry to hear that but you're doing a fair bit better than poor Alvin :(
Avatar 3:47am Jesse Dorris:

Hellooo Hi from Holland! Surgeon, how are the cats and Doris?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52am coelacanth☯:

'morning David (iL)

...i don't know maybe Alvin's doing better than he was a month ago
  4:07am Surgeon:

Hi Jesse. Doris & the cats are doing ok (no that the cats have had their breakfast) I’m still a bit tired after the gig last weekend even though the travel and hours weren’t crazy. Well worth it though. Time for some coffee & Alvin.
  4:08am Surgeon:

(Now that the cats have had their breakfast)

Paulo, to a Western one, Sat-Sun?
  4:20am Hamish:

Good morning all.
Jesse, this atmospheric set is just perfect.
Avatar 4:26am Jesse Dorris:

Aww well thank you Hamish! Lucier was such a genius....
  4:29am David in London:

Morning Hamish.
Avatar 4:31am Ivan from Woodbridge:

Good morning Jesse and all (‘evening Scott, ‘afternoon Paulo)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:32am David (in London):

Hey Ivan.
Avatar 4:38am Ivan from Woodbridge:

Hey David
  4:38am Hamish:

Howdy David, how's the big smoke looking today? It's sub zero here.
Avatar 🎸 4:38am Special_Vessels:

Morning all...been lurking but listening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42am Scott67:

G'day Ivan. 😎🤙

Ready for the Ashes all you Brits and Aussies?

Morning Jinjabredboy!

Hey S/V!
Avatar 5:06am Ivan from Woodbridge:

Your tribute shows are a great feature of your show Jesse. They can also be cited to argue our side if and when WFMU’s tax exemption for being an educational institution gets challenged again
  5:06am Hi from Holland:

Always strange to hear Dutch in WFMU... but nice.
Avatar 5:10am Jesse Dorris:

Ahh thank you Ivan!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:11am jinjabredboy:

Yes Ivan - 100% agree
Avatar 🎸 5:12am Buttercup:

This is incredibly unhelpful while trying to proofread Dutch text, but a much appreciated introduction to someone whose work I'm unfamiliar with, very hypnotic
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:13am David (in London):

Hamish, yep, pretty Baltic down here, too. But I am starting to feel at least a little Christmas-y, which is a bonus...
Avatar 5:13am Jesse Dorris:

haha sorry for the interruption Buttercup! The Dutch is only temporary...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:13am I k e:

Cool show tonight!

I’m glad I’m not still copyediting while listening to this. I wrapped up at 3 or so.
Avatar 5:16am Jesse Dorris:

I keep thinking the melody behind the voices is "We wish you a merry christmas"...
  5:23am DMZ:

wow. thanks so much for this.
Avatar 5:27am Jesse Dorris:

My pleasure, DMZ!
Avatar 🎸 5:33am Special_Vessels:

Is anybody up for a sincere debate on the merits of Lawrence Weiner's art? Not tryna start any flame wars here, just always legitimately struggled to find any depth there.
Avatar 5:35am Jesse Dorris:

I like much of it a great deal, tbh. But depth isn't always something I'm looking for.
Avatar 🎸 5:38am Special_Vessels:

Fair, but is it not all one note? Did he innovate over the course of his career?
Avatar 5:42am Jesse Dorris:

I'm not sure he innovated in his painting, but he did emphasize and articulate and refine
Avatar 🎸 5:43am Special_Vessels:

Maybe I'm missing something. It happened once before...
Avatar 5:43am Jesse Dorris:

innovation is only one kind of achievement
Avatar 🎸 5:44am Special_Vessels:

I'm with you there
  5:52am The Butterman:

I’m pretty sure LW benefited from being the right guy in the right time and place to capitalize on a rich gallery system which he aptly took advantage of to show his work which is like clever, clean, neat graffiti.
Avatar 5:52am Jesse Dorris:

And that's it from me, friends! Stay safe out there and see you back next week.......
Avatar 5:53am Ivan from Woodbridge:

Thanks Jesse, always a pleasure. Take care all
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:53am jinjabredboy:

Thanks Jesse
Avatar 5:53am David:

Great show, Jesse. Thanks.
  🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:55am 12539:

Thanks, Jesse.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:55am David (in London):

Thanks for an amazing show today Jesse.
Avatar 🎸 5:57am Special_Vessels:

@Butterman: hadn't thought of the graffiti angle
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58am Scott67:

Thanks Jesse! ✌😎🤙
  5:59am Surgeon:

Thanks for the music Jesse. Until next time fellow Glotals
