Hiya P90. Nice music for lounging around doing not much more than cooking bacon.

RIP Maya--listen to a recording of her speaking to honor her memory, one of the best speakers we've ever had!
  4:26am P-90:

In Norway they build huge bonfires and get drunk on Ascension day.

Hey there Sem!
  4:33am Meghan:

Morning all!
  4:34am P-90:

Reminds me of Archie comics, when the Archies would play at a dance, you'd see notes and stuff floating in the air around the band, and floating over the kids doing the Watusi, the Frug, the Crawl and all those groovy dances
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35am Matt from Springfield:

Morning Meghan! Hi there Sem!
  4:35am P-90:

Guten Tzag Meghan! What's the theme for Ascension/Bacon Day?
Avatar 4:39am Sem Chumbo:

Good morning Julie & everyone! thank god for monty python!?! :))
  4:44am coalhard:

We must respect our veg friends out there--Tofu is something that came out of a plants ass
Avatar 4:44am fred von helsing:

Yup it's a holiday. They're almost all religious holidays here, what with it being overrun by Lutherans. Lutheranism fits this culture. Nobody gets bent out of shape about religious stuff. At least not the gang I run with. Mutual respect all around and another beer, please.
  4:45am P-90:

I'd like to see them making these sounds, that must have been fun
  4:47am coalhard:

Thnks steve kevin and ana--we love you!

Avatar 5:04am fred von helsing:

@MvS Well, when it comes to beer, I think Ben Franklin had the definitive quote :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04am Matt from Springfield:

Walter Carlos!!! Clockwork Orange! :D
  5:05am Meghan:

A song for my Droogs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05am Matt from Springfield:

@FVH: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy :)
Avatar 5:06am Sem Chumbo:

For the record, here, in a letter addressed to André Morellet in 1779, is what Benjamin Franklin actually did say:

Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07am Matt from Springfield:

@Meghan: Moogs for Droogs, Part I

What I LOVE about this theme is that the dark, synth sound, the music is actually over 300 years old. Henry Purcell's "Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary" taken into the synthesized age.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09am Matt from Springfield:

Wine is lovely too! Thanks Sem for that full quote, I never saw it before.

For the record, Hearty White once played the original "analog" version by Purcell--it was much like Carlos' version, with brass instruments instead of Moog.
Avatar 5:11am Sem Chumbo:

Kubrick played all the hits in Clockwork for sure, Matt.
Though I guess *Alex* brought "Singing in the Rain" to the set ad libitum:)

Amen, brethren and sistren ! Pass the funnelator !

So JC ascended into heaven after being shot out of one of these, FVH? www.wikihow.com...
