  3:08pm hamburger:

checkered salmon?
  3:10pm kat330:

Pale blue gill?
  3:12pm Van in DC:

Cool! Fish-shaped submarines?
  3:13pm hamburger:

It's times like these I wish I paid attention during fish silhouette class in school..
  3:15pm Carmichael:

Hey now, Kurt. Nice gif, Jeff. Reminds me a high school band I was in, Neon Trout.
  3:17pm Carmichael:

Gill Scott Herring? The aquarium will not be televised.
  3:17pm das:

Salmon Rushdie?
  3:17pm hamburger:

Excellent trout recognition Carmichael!

  3:17pm kat330:

Pale Blue Raised Pleasure Dot Pulses / .....
  3:18pm Sleeping with Fishes:

Four Cornered Aquarium?
Avatar 3:19pm DJKG:

y'all's got jokes today!
  3:19pm ClearChannel & Viacom:

Sure, Minnesota Jeff animated GIFs are always incredibly creative, but we outspend him 10,000-fold! What kind of brand image is strobing blue fish? That violates every known marketing principle.
  3:19pm kat330:

Aha, methinks there's a Dot theme -- Department of Transportation via music.
Avatar 3:19pm DJKG:

it's a dot matrix!
  3:20pm kat330:

  3:21pm kat330:

Kilgore Trout.
  3:21pm hamburger:

the above trout emits radially, whilst the lower trout emits linearly (hidden message!)
  3:24pm hamburger:

trout trance
  3:25pm das:

Pre-Trout Dream Music?
  3:25pm Carmichael:

I believe the fish radiance thing is Jeff's statement on the decline of socio-cultural communication in 21st century America. That is what I believe.
  3:26pm kat330:

The Dot Matrix is a Neo-logism.
  3:29pm hamburger:

I believe the above trout is jumping free, showing his bold post-pubescent trout phase feelings with his exuberant gesture of leaping beyond the grid, whilst the elder bummer trout is exuding pessimistic self-determinism via his downward linearity
  3:29pm Ric:

Surreal tempo
  3:30pm kat330:

Damn the torpedoes!
  3:30pm Ric:

I *think* it may be 45rpm... but I like it!
  3:33pm hamburger:

  3:36pm jmr3:

Ooh yeh, the Salmon swimming up the stream of time
Leaping up the Falls of Man, to the source of Love and Light
Guided from Atlantis to the Water-Bearer's jar.
Far out-nearerin-and back to where We Are. (Hello!)
Avatar 3:36pm DJKG:

it is not a trout. it's a flounder in a trout mask. it's not actually a mask. it's a replica of a mask.
  3:37pm Van in DC:

So it's a masked mask
  3:37pm Carmichael:

Is that what all the guys at the radar station say, Kurt?
  3:38pm kat330:

I think it's just a fluke.
Avatar 3:39pm DJKG:

safe as milk, carmichael!
  3:41pm kat330:

Well, I was trying to decide between fish and hamburger for dinner tonight. This playlist didn't help.
Avatar 3:41pm DJKG:

have sea cow, kat!
  3:42pm glenn:

i'm barbecuing tandoori chicken. does that help?
  3:42pm kat330:

Dugong! :)
  3:43pm kat330:

[they dugong-gong-gong, they dugong-gong]
  3:43pm ERD:

Just tuned in . . .is this a remix of A. Bossetti's track from Royals. . .this is the same Trophies he is in, yes? Great show btw
  3:44pm das:

Lake Ontario trout -nuclear reactor side
  3:44pm kat330:

@glenn: mmmmm! You can get the grill hot enough without burning up the meat? I've only done tandoori in the oven.
Avatar 3:45pm DJKG:

erd, not a remix just another recording of it, from their second record.
  3:46pm Carmichael:

Mmmm, dugong ....
  3:47pm kat330:

Seriously, don't have a sea cow, man(atee)!
  3:48pm glenn:

well, it's marinating now, and it'll go on the WEBER KETTLE (plug plug) @7:00 or so. it'll be moist enough to protect from burning, and anyway, i don't mind a bit of char.
  3:49pm kat330:

I'll have to give that a try. Yogurt + spices for your marinade?
  3:51pm das:

Thanks KG, I'm gonna have this stuck in my head all weekend.
  3:52pm glenn:

patak's tandoori. plus a secret ingredient, for your eyes only, kat. everybody else look away. here it is - maple syrup.
  3:53pm kat330:

Kurt, do you know Candle Hour?
  3:53pm kat330:

Maple syrup, eh? Sweeeet!
  3:54pm Mike East:

dang, i wish I knew what glenn's secret ingredient was.
  3:55pm kat330:

@Mike: I did a spit take, hope you're happy! :)
  3:55pm Mike East's Lunch:

Me too, dude.
  3:56pm Mike East's Lunch:

Was I good today, or what?
  3:56pm kat330:

@Mike: Why DO you let your lunch have so much say? Gotta keep your food down, man.
Avatar 3:57pm DJKG:

candle hour? no.
  3:57pm kat330:

Thanks for the Bjork, DJ KG.
  3:57pm Mike East:

I hold my lunch in very high regard. It knows its place, though.
  3:57pm Mike East's Lunch:

the 'man' ain't keeping me down.
  3:57pm Carmichael:

Boy, I recognized Bjork on the 1st syllable of the 1st note. She's an odd duck, that one.
  3:58pm kat330:

I guess the playlist is tilting toward something aquatic tonight.
  3:58pm jmr3:

Steve Hillage - he used to be in the duo Gong, well they were a full band really
  3:59pm Parq:

Carm, I was similarly thinking what an incredibly distinct voice she has. I can't say I always get her, but anyone who can reduce even Stephen Colbert to fawning must have it going on.
  4:00pm kat330:

  4:01pm Carmichael:

Natty Bumppo?
  4:02pm kat330:

"keep on goin'" sounded like a loop of Michael Caine's voice to me.
  4:03pm kat330:

@jmr3: I really enjoy "Oily Way" but don't know much else (it was on a mix tape made for me).
  4:03pm Mike East:

a coworker just said that Mats Gustafsson sounded like his wife singing in the shower.
  4:04pm glenn:

stephen colbert? http://jezebel.com/5893801/stephen-colbert-addresses-the-lies-that-rick-santorum-believes-in-his-heart?tag=rick-santorum
  4:09pm kat330:

This IS nice....
Avatar 4:09pm DJKG:

i'm not a huge bjork fan. i respect her, but vespertine is the only record i think is really great - although i probably haven't heard them all. but i saw her once in the audience at tonic (for a zeena parkins show) and she was absolutely radiant. not cute or sexy or whatever, but she radiated, she filled and warmed the room. an enormous presence, that one has.
  4:12pm bjork-fish:

  4:12pm Mike East:

@DJKG - Bette Midler has a similar presence.
  4:13pm kat330:

That kind of light comes from within, a good soul. I really enjoyed her in "Dancer in the Dark."
  4:13pm Carmichael:

It's gotta be the cheekbones.
  4:19pm still b/p:

bjork in a...less warm moment. Don't mess with a woman and her child if you know what's good for ya:
Avatar 4:23pm DJKG:

meast, interesting. i can see that.
  4:24pm kat330:

@sb/p: Yeah, but until you walk in her mocs. Seems to me something especially ugly was said, not just the intrusion on privacy. Maybe she was just having a "glamorous" period.
  4:25pm kat330:

[that last in "" will only be understood if you know of Duane's playlist from March 7th.]
  4:26pm jmr3:

@kat330 - my favorite Hillage is in fact, Fish Rising, with the Fish Song, and the Salmon Song, and You by Gong,
  4:28pm jmr3:

I drove my too young to drive sister to see the Sugarcubes, didn't know anything about them, a real low budget afair - Bjork blew me away
  4:28pm kat330:

@jmr3: I'll check them out. I suppose "Oily Way" could fall into an aquatic theme -- for BP....
  4:31pm kat330:

This piece makes me think of fireflies.
  4:34pm still b/p:

I ain't a'judgin'. I'm surprised more celebs don't flip more often, given the hyena clusters they have to navigate. I remember the discussion and the playlist entry, which reminded of this spinnicism:
  4:34pm jmr3:

@kat330 - if you like the Gong and and care for Acid Mothers Temple, Iao Chant From the Cosmic Inferno is their take on the "Glorious Ohm Riff" from You. minus the silly Gong singing
  4:34pm Parq:

This Reich piece reminds me, my kid's school is putting up what sounds like a really cool concert by its resident percussion ensemble this coming Wednesday, featuring Reich, Cage, Joan Tower and more. I can't go, coz it's out of town in the middle of the week,but if you're in the area (lookin' at you, WMFU listners), you might want to look into it.
  4:35pm still b/p:

THIS spinnicism:
Avatar 4:36pm DJKG:

i've been working on having so percussion on the show, parq. but it looks like it won't happen till the fall.
  4:40pm kat330:

S b/p (as opposed to Still BP: Heh, Ken wouldn't run out of images on that tiny theme (as opposed to Donut Queens).
  4:42pm kat330:

@parq: Guess it's overloaded, got a tiny 501 error.
  4:42pm Sandy in Houston:

me and the bass player on this released an album with weasel walter yesterday!
  4:46pm kat330:

@parq: Got it now!
  4:53pm Carmichael:

This music scares me. I keep looking around and hearing noises.
  4:53pm kat330:

Freedom in a vacuum: In space, no one can hear you vacuum.
  4:54pm kat330:

Ah, Carmichael, beware Alien.
Avatar 4:54pm DJKG:

sandy, cool!
carmichael, have you heard grief's 5 lp / cd "alice in wonderland"? scary as hell!
  4:55pm Carmichael:

No Kurt, and now I'm afraid to!
  4:56pm still b/p:

Friend of mine intends to do a scary film without standard gore, etc. Wants to know what's reallly scary.
  4:56pm Carmichael:

But the fish don't seem to care ....
  4:59pm kat330:

I don't find gore scary. Can't be scared if your face is turned away, and that's all gore does for me. Timing is a big part, building suspense.
  5:02pm still b/p:

Some of the truly scary things would be too close to disturbing realities...what some people have been through. But appropriating those experiences or even cueing a recall of the real versions for the sake of a charged movie scare....wouldn't be of interest to me.
  5:03pm kat330:

Or, hey, s b/p, you getting pointers to make a Friday the 13th audio for Kurt? :)
  5:05pm Caryn:

No wonder Greif is going to step outside and keep walking. It's okay, because it's no ordinary storm going on.
  5:07pm Mark T in VT:

Someone I know as a coworker said she was in "Feeding the Masses" a 2004 gore zombie media scare movie from what I can tell from IMDB. I need to get it from Netflix. She said she was in it for about 30 seconds in a death scene.
  5:07pm kat330:

Speaking of soundtracks supposed to aid the action, but not doing so: Anyone watching broadcast tv, have you noticed the obnoxious overuse of background music on shows of late? It shows such a lack of faith in the dialogue, the plot and, especially, the acting talent. I'd prefer putting on CC with some shows.
  5:08pm still b/p:

  5:12pm kat330:

For the hour-long drama, it's a crutch the equivalent of a laugh track on a sitcom.
  5:14pm Mark T in VT:

I have been watching pub d hub on the Roku. But with no sound. Listen to WFMU and have an old sci fi horror movie on. Most of the time the sounds from WFMU seems to fit.
  5:14pm common:

the use of crappy, dramatic music telling you how to feel and the only using blue hues for a color scheme...SCREW hollywood and Burbank!!!!!!!
  5:15pm Caryn:

As for what's scary, I am somewhat scared that the GOP is hoping to turn "A Handmaid's Tale" from a dystopian novel into a documentary. (I blame your link, glenn, for leading me to start thinking at the GOP again! Dammit! But in response, I give you this, not just for its content, but for the joy at seeing Colbert crack up completely: http://gawker.com/5791100/watch-stephen-colberts-defense-of-planned-parenthood)
  5:19pm Caryn:

I'm torn. Listening to WFMU but watching a documentary about Klaus Voormann, bass player/artist/guy who designed the cover of "Revolver". Difficult to decide what to focus on more... For now, they're creating a nice sound collage.
  5:22pm kat330:

@common: Yeah, "crappy" is the keyword. Music can actually make or break a film (IMO), but it's these meandering, why-even-bother-to-record tracks put behind stuff (NCIS may be the worst offender, but because of its mass appeal, now they ALL do it. And I only saw NCIS when I was at my mother's, a fave of hers.)
  5:23pm Mike East:

@Caryn and glenn - Thanks for the Colbert links. I've been hurting my face smiling so hard. He's the one thing I miss about cable television.
  5:27pm Mark T in VT:

Too bad there couldn't be music and sound like this to go with the shut ups after Kurt.
  5:28pm kat330:

@Caryn: "rounded up to the nearest 90%" was choice. Gee, I gotta check out our Walgreens more carefully. I had no idea.
  5:29pm Carmichael:

Are we suddenly in New Orleans? Cool.
  5:49pm Carmichael:

Now it sounds like we're in Memphis.
  5:51pm 12539:

I enjoy these recent phone interviews/requests.
  5:52pm kat330:

I don't think the lyrics were that dated at all. We are backsliding in too many ways. Yes, thanks for the interviews and the Prince, Kurt. I gotta run! Safe St. Paddy's day to everyone!
  5:53pm Carmichael:

My next door neighbor was a family member of the Ohio Players. One of their non-musical brothers. Satchell, I believe the family name was.
  5:55pm Caryn:

@kat: yeah, just look for the stirrups! I'm sure you'll find the right place.
  5:57pm Caryn:

Oh, Petula, I've missed you!
  5:58pm Carmichael:

I live for this song.
  5:58pm Parq:

Anybody else find that the moment when Petula mutters "Yeh" as the orch goes into the second bridge is just sublime? Great show, KG.
  6:03pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'll listen more carefully next week. Happy St. Patrick's Eve, everyone.
