Hey Cecile - Have you ever crossed paths with the musician/artist Douglas R Ewart up in your neck of the woods?
Avatar 10:06am Cecile:

I have seen him many times. He is a wonderful player.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07am tim from champaign:

Cool! I saw him last night playing with Wadada Leo Smith. I loved his spinning tops.
Avatar 10:08am Cecile:

oh, that sounds great.
I remember him playing at various times ham radio static, and a crutch covered with cymbals and bells.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10am tim from champaign:

I saw the crutch!
Avatar 10:12am Cecile:

isn't it cool?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12am tim from champaign:

I ate black eggs a few weeks ago in a Taiwanese dish called "Thousand Year Old Egg". It was delicious.
Avatar 10:13am dcp:

fuckin A! There's no way to put itunes in one channel and quicktime in the other. Thanks a lot, Apple!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13am tim from champaign:

Yeah, that crutch had some great sounds.
Avatar 10:13am dcp:

actually the mix right now is pretty cool..

DC is filled with these nuckleheads. Usually it happens when it gets colder though. And then the women put on pj pants and tan fuzzy boots.

Try triple-playlisting. It'll blow your mind. Or at least your Internet connection.
Avatar 10:46am Tom G:

A guy in shorts was standing next to me on the train last night clearly ahead of today's pack. I was ready to forgive if he seemed like maybe he'd just come from the gym but that was def not the case. He was bundled up a bit more on top .. mixed messages.
Avatar 10:46am Jennique:

Scott, I saw a dude walking around yesterday without a jacket in short sleeves. Kinda what you are talking about of the early-shorts-wearing knunckleheads. The Onion did a funny article on the UPS man in shorts as a harbinger of spring.

I love it a whole lot, tim. I can't really pick a winner, but I kind of rooting for Jinx Monsoon - Seattle's premier Jewish narcoleptic drag queen.

Last night I saw a huge group of college students running in their undies, if that counts, Scott.

Avatar 10:58am βrian:

Autotune must die.
Avatar 10:59am Rev. Turnip Druid:

HAH, I think this discussion came up last week as well. This is the only context where I'll accept autotune: these wacky cats crank the crazy-legs hell out of it. As it should be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am Cory:

I love the Polysic's use of autotune
Avatar 11:00am βrian:

Autotune, like other forms of torture, is never acceptable.
Avatar 11:01am Rev. Turnip Druid:

in other words: if it must be there, over-use it to apocalyptic proportions. It becomes surreal. But in the context of western pop music, the perpetrators must be strung up and fed to termites.
  11:01am Lucy:

Listening to this show in my sleep produces some weird dreams, especially when Scott was talking about clothing and people being in bands. But it's hard to tell what you were actually saying and what my dream mind thought you were saying.
Avatar 11:02am dcp:

the only place I like it is on Adventure Time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02am Sigurdur:

I like Lucy!
Avatar 11:03am βrian:

It's what Joseph Mengele dances to.
Avatar 11:04am Rev. Turnip Druid:

So what is autotune, really? A rackmount FX unit? Stomp-box? Some physical hardware, or a pc plugin thing? Can it be abused further? Taken off-the-map into glitch/noise territory? Just curious.
  11:04am Lucy:

I see I'm one step below Mrs Ball.
Avatar 11:06am Cecile:

I like Autotune if it sounds like Zapp.
Avatar 11:07am Cecile:

Or at least Midnight Star
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am fred:

I only like autotune when it's extreme. And preferably used on instruments it wasn't designed for, not voice
Avatar 11:09am Rev. Turnip Druid:

yeh, that's my thought (fred) -- If "mis-used," any audio-mod tool could potentially be good fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11am fred:

@Rev Turnip Druid: TG Gondard has been using one live for vocals, the good thing is that it doesn't work as intended in a noisish set. It can be a fun effect
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am DCE:

I've never seen a stompbox autotune--usually it's a plug in...I think there are some rackmounts available. But put that shit in a stompbox and put a patent on that, and watch the $ flow in.
  Swag For Life Member 11:14am 12539:

Is this intentionally slowed?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Scott McDowell:

I can't tell, it's not marked on the LP. I *think* this is the right speed!
Avatar 11:17am Richard Nixon:

Sounds perfect to me!

At any rate, selector's choice!

Avatar 11:23am dcp:

Ike: can do nothing but agree whole-heartedly. Greatest cartoon EVER...I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am Sugarfly Waterloo:

I find autotune at it's worse when it's used to subtlely adjust the pitch on vocals. I find the unnatural transitions and plateaus grating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am tim from champaign:

My dad's a Mason. Masons drink like lightweights. Now, eating swiss steak dinners, that's another story.
Avatar 11:26am Rev. Turnip Druid:

If you ever meet one, never shake him. Mason jarring is an old tradition but usually someone gets injured...

  11:55am Lucy:

Damn straight, too much bad weed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am G:

When I see a playlist song already yellow-starred, meaning I starred it a prior time it was played, that's gotta be the FMU equivalent of "heavy request"/"heavy rotation" -- 20 people have already faved that track, and I know I've heard it at least three or four times already... No, NOT tired of it, the opposite...
  Swag For Life Member 11:55am 12539:

Scott, I like your show on the days when I catch it. Such as today. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56am G:

I was referring to the Parquet Floors track from 90 minutes ago, oops :)

it was a great wave to ride, thanks Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am DCE:

strange, I starred that tune last time I heard it but it didn't show as starred today. So I re-starred it. Stay starred, peeps.
