It ran one step ahead, as we followed in the dance.

got a few richard harris records in a $1 bin last year. What a strange person he was.
Avatar 3:06pm put a watch on:

Thank God I didn't get to hear all of McCarther's Park because I don't feel like crying today.
  3:06pm LovecraftDude888:

This Orca Life. Man, that movie was really,really really bad....saw it at Drive In and it was hideous...
  3:07pm paula pc:

and we're off!!
  3:07pm LovecraftDude888:

wasn't allowed to see Jaws, so instead had to settle for Orca. my loss
Avatar 3:09pm Mary Wing:

Thank you, and goodnight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm common:

that sucks Lovecraft Dude. My dad took my brother and I to see Jaws the first time we went to the beach. I've had trouble with water ever since. And, yea, Orca sucked.
Avatar 3:10pm windmills of your yard:

Is is safe to listen again?
  3:13pm paula pc:

@ windmills -- I'm not sure!
  3:14pm LovecraftDude888:

all I remember is them shooting the momma Orca dead on that big Drive In screen and it was making me ill..I was like 8 yrs. old. oh boy. Should have read Lorca instead
  3:15pm mk:

was auf der erde ist das?
  3:16pm LovecraftDude888:

1977...nah I was 9 yrs. Still, traumatic and putrid. Bo Derek couldn't even save it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm common:

@Lovecraft: I agree.
  3:19pm LovecraftDude888:

ok, someone having a relig. exp. or nervous breakdown on tape maybe better off with Orca.....see ya
Avatar 3:21pm tweezer certified:

My local library system came though with all the DVD requests I got from youz guyz lately: Nasville,Paths of Glory, A Band Called Death and Drive.

Heat up the pan Betty Lou-Lou and pop us up some snacks!

awesome tweezer certified. Those are all great!

co workers starting to look at me funny...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Mike East:

be advised that Nashville takes some patience. As with most Altman films, it helps to have the captions on.
Avatar 3:26pm Mark Helsten:

Hello world.
Avatar 3:29pm leaky dia-pear:

Check! Mike. I don't see many movies, yet am surprised that Nashville has evaded me this long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm common:

i loooooove nashville. a band called death is good too!
Avatar 3:34pm still b/p:

This is like a Victor Borge routine with more production.

I've been needing to get the vacuuming done, here's my chance.

Nashville is an Altman masterpiece, IMHO. I am a big fan though...
  3:38pm lulu:

i feel like im in The Shining but it's all slowed down
Avatar 3:42pm still b/p:

How about Namu, The Killer Whale, 1966 -- anybody catch it? I didn't, but I recall reports of that story not ending well for one or more whales either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm common:

@b/p: poor whales.
Avatar 3:44pm still b/p:

Don't let 'em go to casting calls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Caryn:

Well, Namu's mate gets it early on, and there's some unscrupulous fishermen, but all in all Namu is a way happier affair than Orca ever was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Mike East:

there's a pretty newish documentary about a killer killer whale. I think its called black fin or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Mike East:

"Black Fish"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Caryn:

@Mike East: Blackfish. It is superb. Highly recommend it to everyone.
Avatar 3:47pm still b/p:

It hammers Sea World, I understand.
  3:47pm marmeladenkatze:

would've liked to hear Ian Dury cover this one
  3:48pm lulu:

good alphabet song
Avatar 3:48pm bunk warmer needed:

@still b/p the killer whales always get the last laugh by taking out a Marine World employee every so often just to even up the score.
Avatar 3:48pm Kurt Gottschalk:

good day, everyone! thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Mike East:

@Caryn - was planning to see it. Now I'll move it up to a higher priority.
Avatar 3:49pm Mark Helsten:

New Wyatt?? Nice and thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Caryn:

Nice to hear, Mike! You won't regret it. Unless it traumatises you like Orca did lovecraft...
  3:52pm lulu:

this sounds like its from another era
Avatar 3:52pm proud beggar:

YEAH! my library has Blackfish too! Thanks Mike and Caryn!
Avatar 3:52pm still b/p:

Everything's good....all fine...the sea mammal entertainment parks will assure you. Orca happy!
Avatar 3:52pm Mark Helsten:

agreed... what's the deal? I guess I have the internet in front of me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm common:

i want to check out black fish, but i'm a tad scared.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Caryn:

Hmm, my promised avatar doesn't really work in small scale. Might have to go to another one at some point.
Avatar 3:55pm Tomioka town:

@common when you get scared just imagine the Orca as a tuna fish sandwich. Works for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Caryn:

@common: I'd balance it by scheduling another film or documentary right afterwards. Something uplifting. That way, things'll balance out in the end.

@Caryn your avitar is just the right size for another hedgehog. I am from tornado alley and can't get enough of that sculpture. I like all your images.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm common:

@Caryn: I just read about it. whew! it sounds like an important one to see. Screw Sea World, man! Watch a comedy after.
  4:00pm marmeladenkatze:

nice one R.Wyatt!
  4:01pm paula pc:

leave it to Kurt to break huge WaHi-area news!
Avatar 4:01pm dog owner fight:

@Kurt It is literally impossible that he DIDN'T know, but it's of course sweet to have the proof anyway. Not that politicians or corporations are held to the same rule of law as us plebs are.
Avatar 4:02pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hi neighbor pc!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Caryn:

That's the spirit, common!

@ccc: the sculpture is fabulous. And it makes music! Today's hedgehog avatar was chosen because it reminds me of Radiohead's "Fake Plastic Trees" video. The hedgehog is in another aisle, just doing some light shopping. Might go for another avatar for the second half of the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Caryn:

I feel that after the one-two punch of The Cove and Blackfish, Sea World and its ilk are kinda toast.

back but I couldn't deal with Fortner A....too annoying for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Caryn:

Okay, let's see if the new avatar can help lighten the dark, sea mammal-adjacent mood.
  4:19pm LovecraftDude888:

one time Andy Partridge of XTC told us he used to pleasure himself on tour with a toy rubber shark....and we then brought him one as a gift at a Record World signing party....and made him guess what type it was....and then "a SPERM WHALE" hahahaha he got it!
Avatar 4:21pm kat330:

Busy, busy, but had to log in to star-click that McDowell!
  4:22pm LovecraftDude888:

first guess was a "Shark Whale"?
Avatar 4:22pm boxing flypaper:

@Kat that MFM passed way too quickly. As soon as I realized I was listening to something special, it was over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm common:

this axelrod is greeet!
Avatar 4:22pm kat330:

And I guess stay for the strange convo ... um, Partridge told you (us) that where / how / when?
  4:23pm LovecraftDude888:

oh I dunno...or he told my friend, or in some interview, I cannot recall any longer...was around 1989
Avatar 4:23pm kat330:

@name changer: Yep, too short by a mighty Mississippi mile.
Avatar 4:23pm Mark Helsten:

oooohhhh I didn't know about star-clicking!
Avatar 4:23pm pencil-neck geek:

that sounds like a 'fish story' Lovercraft :)
  4:24pm paula pc:

it's THIS time in Kurt's show -- oof
  4:25pm LovecraftDude888:

yep Orca-esque...but true! And then Andy asked who to autograph this to and I told him I was "Scott Barrett" and he larfed
Avatar 4:25pm kat330:

@LCD: Well, sure doesn't sound a path toward true XTC. [I'm a huge XTC fan, so it's all the more curious to me.]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Caryn:

You know, thanks to "The Edge" and his father, David McCallum has been quite exceptionally influential in modern music history. Final proof that Ilya Kuryakin was always superior to Napoleon Solo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm northguineahills:

Wow! a Jon album I've never heard of!
  4:26pm LovecraftDude888:

haha...all true! If i can find the autographed zine I'll scan it in and post on my profile
Avatar 4:27pm kat330:

Please do, dude!
  4:28pm LovecraftDude888:

I will, if I can dig it out of the stuff I packed moving recently. God knows where it went.. but I do have it
  4:28pm LovecraftDude888:

but the shark whale bit was in person....
Avatar 4:29pm kat330:

And, are you sure the story wasn't about ALAN Partridge? ;)
Avatar 4:29pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

  4:32pm LovecraftDude888:

ha..nope. Def. Andy. was around when Oranges and Lemons came out. I met They Might Be Giants around the same time at the same store....at some other signing. Or I met John Flans.
Avatar 4:35pm kat330:

TMBG is another fave of mine. Some store!
  4:38pm LovecraftDude888:

I cannot believe the events we used to have and those were LI record stores, even, not even nyc. Record World...roos. field mall...and Tower Records out here had tons of events and live shows. Met Robyn Hitchcock 1st time at Tower...gosh.
Avatar 4:40pm kat330:

Ha! Honest to Cthulhu, I swear I was going to ask next if you met Hitchcock! He just seemed a fit in that firmament.

Well, off to do some dinner prep now. Leave a note on the list, LCD, if you do find and upload that dingus on your profile, and I'll check for it in the archives.

Stalin didnt physically kill anyone post 1923 to my knowledge.. like Hitler, post 1916-17? I'd like to find out more though..
We, the general public.. need to acknowledge our part.. instesd of blaming tyranny on one or two men, perhaps..
