Listener comments!

  3:12am Adam:

Joined late, but glad to chime in! Hi, Jesse: I went to my first bris a few hours ago. Wow. Mynah Birds!
  3:38am crunchy snow:

hey guys, well i didn't have a d.j. nightmare per se. did just watch the adaptation of william gibson's 'johnny mnemonic' & then fall asleep & dream of.. ponds??! i think. maybe not worth describing...
  3:39am numbing feet:

also woke up with 'sunday morning' by the velvets in my head & here's the very pretty video i found to accompany it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuM3SteeAgY
  3:41am cumulous clouds:

woke up-- *this morning* -- that was.. how *r* you all?
  3:43am jj.:

hooray for cyberpunk nostalgia. sometimes i can't believe more william gibson novels haven't been adapted for screen. then i remember johnny mnemonic.
  3:47am madrigals,:

totally-- it was on net flicks on demand-- that was the only reason. and i was sitting around wtih artists & they were like 'oh there's that movie robert longo made (wha?? where did that come from???) maybe we should watch it. and near the end flaming volkswagens start falling from the underground fort and that was everybody's favorite moment :-)
  3:50am jj.:

holy PKD, robert longo directed that? wtf?! guess i saw it before i knew who he was.
  3:54am under the bridge:

yeah-- i don't think i'd even heard of the phrase 'art world' when that movie was made-- '95? if you looked you could def. see his stamp-- like that a lot of the cyber deaths seemed to happen in baroque space, like his drawings generally do-- all flowy & loose & lost. but he def could've gotten more of a handle on continuity, character development et al.
  3:57am jj.:

let's also not forget the johnny mnemonic pinball game: http://www.wunderkammern27.com/2007/06/mnemonic_pinball_507.html
  4:04am movie cameras:

ah, that's totally hilarious! i gotta say i think the graphics in the movie (actually pretty fun!) had to have meant coexistance with pinball, now that ya mention it-- just look at that 1st photo-- it says; 'keanu reeves. hollywood. in a diorama':-) nice. also, nice n' out-of-order
  4:33am fake blood:

oh these guys are fun. i like that they started making this smooth jazz music only in 1998: is that right?
  4:42am jj.:

not sure i'd call them "smooth" precisely, but--yeah--sort of new york post-zorn downtown lounge stuff, though always got deeper/weirder when they played live.
  4:45am greysoul:

You know, it's just like my Uncle Ned always said: "Smile and the whole dang world smiles with you. Stuttering works well, too."
  4:47am violins:

yes, whoops-- i think i was blending the characters of the dudes with the music or something & came out with a misnomer: yeah. saw them play in meandering circumstances, like out on the streets, only, i think. good idea to go indoors to listen
  4:48am pauldepiperssoninpurgatory:

brilliant stuff, the sound of art service, what wfmu is all about, great stuff. did negativland sample this. they did of course, christianity is stupid love it
  4:50am pauldepiperssoninpurgatory:

escape from noise album. this stuff is incredible
  4:50am jj.:

...and the movie ghostbusters. yeah. they, negativland sure did sample. ca't believe it's real. and that weird al is on the list.
  4:53am pauldepiperssoninpurgatory:

me too. to be honest ididnt realise this was real. i thought negativland had constructed it inhouse, amazing.
  4:57am costumes:

G! Your uncle taught you well. Guess those words of wisdom can also function like religion/cults?
Stutter over a grocery store list of 'Evil' & you will both be stuttered with and against (sampled).
'Liked the heightening appalachian vocal part.
  5:01am greysoul:


In fact, Uncle Ned himself bought a 20 lb. can of electrode gel with royalties paid to him for samples of his own voice. I can't remember the recording project ... Mr. DJ probably knows.
  5:07am pink snow:

Electrode gel... is that what one could use to safely convey the sample of one's own voice?
  5:08am greysoul:

Ohh ... now, there's an idea.
  5:11am snot:

Like, better than *without* the gel..., right?.
  5:14am greysoul:

Exactly again.

Which almost reminds me of something else Uncle Ned said, but I can't remember it exactly right now.
  5:19am salty breath:

Wow: such similarity to Dustin Wong on this. Instrumentation, style, time signaturin'

G: Keep a tab on that commentary & speak out when you recall!
  5:27am greysoul:

Delicate Steve = layers of happiness!

It's ... it's almost ... nope - lost it. I can't remember the Uncle Ned quote.

To paraphrase an award acceptance speech Dylan once gave: "It's like my Uncle Ned used to say ..." [long, long pause ... rubbing of hat around on head ... focusing of eyes on award statue ... then lean back into the mic] "Well ... he said a lot of stuff, actually."
Now, I wish I could remember when that was from. I had a TV at the time. Jack Nicholson presented the award. He was the straightest of the two. That's all I can tell you.
  5:46am sunny teeth:

'Prolly that was from '91? Grammy's: Lifetime Achievement Award but funny, in the link I watched Nicholson congratulates Dylan on basically being a lyrical human being & then all Bob says is "well"... before the clip ends.

Sums up the equation perfectly, no...?!
  5:50am greysoul:

That'd be the clip - obviously recorded by a Jack fanatic. The "Well .." leads into the classic Dylan moment recounted above, more or less. Substitute "my Old Man" for "my Uncle Ned", as I recall.

Much, much, much rubbing of the hat around on the head during the long pause.
  5:55am soupy tongue:

I think I am within that interstitial moment right now: tried to remove sweater like half hour ago but it's still around my neck.

Maybe an imagined Uncle Ned can collectively tell us a bed time story now. A very quiet, figeting one ;-)
  5:58am greysoul:

Oh, man - you couldn't mention sweaters around Uncle Ned, either. He'd go right into the cold sweats. I never knew why. Something from his Vaudeville days, I always thought.
