Good Morning, DJ Samantha.

It's the seventh edition of "Samantha",
a nice lucky number.

good evening.

Hi there, Samantha and Samanthanites!
Avatar 12:18am Kurt Gottschalk:

hey samantha! i've missed your last couple shows. sounding great tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21am coelacanth:

Hi Samantha,Hi everyone.
Avatar 12:21am Droll:

Hmmmm, I had no idea Mr. Shields made music that sounded like this. Not surprising, but still a surprise. I like.
Avatar 12:22am bobdoesthings:

@droll.. the playlist isn't up to the minute accurate.. a handful of songs have gone by since kevin shields
Avatar 12:24am Droll:

Well, to the rubbish bin with Mr. Shields then!
Avatar 12:25am Pat Byrne:

Nice show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am Gaylord Fields:

Samantha, you will keep me up past my bedtime the way you are going so far. This is exemplary programming!
Avatar 12:32am bobdoesthings:

I believe Dva pronounced da-va I believe Ken has mentioned - russian word for "Two" and they sing in a made up language.
  12:34am P-90:

Yes, "dva" is "two" in Russian
Avatar 12:37am bobdoesthings:

is this inutilli right now? Hey Samantha could you put info in the "track" field so I can clicky star it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am Gaylord Fields:

@bobdoesthings: i can tell you as a WFMU veteran that it's really difficult to program a show and engineer said show and take care of the playlist all at once. So please carry on indulging Samantha during what is only her seventh WFMU program, and don't sweat the playlist's accuracy.
Avatar 12:46am bobdoesthings:

@gaylord, ah I was worried I came off rude there. My apologies. It's all good, this show is great!! Just wanted to clarify to Droll before to be helpful. Cheers!
Avatar 12:48am Droll:

Don't forget all the clipboards of paperwork that need initials and times and dates! DJs need extra time to break things, which usually happens spontaneously when a song ends and you just opened the mic.
  12:50am rw:

7th show?! Go Samantha! Woo!!!
Avatar 12:51am Droll:

... and binders full of PSAs, Soviet era EAS machines... It's a tough job, WFMU DJs earn every cent they're paid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51am Tome:

...putting these wonderful ,,, all different shows every week ,, alone is just amazing what goes into it ,,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54am Gaylord Fields:

@bobdoesthings: And I don't want to seem overly protective of one of our best new DJs, but as someone who has a complicated relationship with the playlist and comments board myself, I know how hard it can be to multitask. Thanks for clarifying. And yes, this show is really phenomenal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58am Ken From Hyde Park:

The "Static Kings" track sounds like what you'd get if you could record your dreams.
  1:00am rw:

Huh... I wish my dreams sounded like this. Mostly I dream about work. Yuck.
Avatar 1:01am bobdoesthings:

@gaylord - all good man. I'm loving this setlist... Loving every track!! Gotta follow from now on for sure, you ain't kidding about "best new DJ".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02am Ken From Hyde Park:

I dreamed the other night that I dropped my cell phone and the case broke. In the dream, I said "No problem. This is a dream. When I wake up, my phone will be just fine." It sure would've been weird to wake up and find my phone broken. Hoo boy.
Avatar 1:08am bobdoesthings:

@ken from HP - you have lucid dreams a lot? I'm always so happy when I experience ones that I can actually acknowledge it's a dream.. rarely ever happens.
Avatar 1:09am listener mark:

Hello Samantha, happy seventh show. Excellent! Inutili was already favorited already from before. You are playing my favorites.
  1:10am rw:

@Ken: Not that I'd wish your cell phone broken, but it would have been pretty mind blowing.
  1:12am P-90:

@ Ken; like bob said, lucid dreams like that are considered to be very rare
some folks have tried techniques to make them happen more ffrequently, apparently with practice one can learn to consciously "direct" the dream
Avatar 1:13am bobdoesthings:

One time I realized I was in a dream.. and in a panic decided I had to do something bold and I jumped over a counter at a fast food like place and tackled the cashier.. I then woke up.. UGH.. Right when I realize I can fuck with my reality...
  1:15am P-90:

That's something else they say, that you can learn not to wake up upon realizing that you are lucid in your dream, which tends to happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am coelacanth:

i may be dreaming lucidly,but i don't know. I've such a poor relationship with sleep that i dont know if i'm totally asleep during all those dreams in which i know i am dreaming.
Avatar 1:17am bobdoesthings:

Oh so is lucid dreaming only the realization? And not the actual control of events in the dream?
Avatar 1:18am bobdoesthings:

Like if I have the realization that it's a dream but don't have the mental capacity to control the events/experiences. Is that considered "lucid"? Or is it when you're actively participating?
  1:19am P-90:

"lucid dreaming" = being aware that you are asleep and dreaming
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19am coelacanth:

bob (dt) yes. knowing it's a dream makes it "lucid",i'm pretty sure.
Avatar 1:21am bobdoesthings:

Ah.. so is there a term for the ability to control outcomes or make active decisions?
Avatar 1:21am Kurt Gottschalk:

hold the phone, is sammy a commie? this changes EVERYTHING!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21am coelacanth:

that's called "awesome".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21am Ken From Hyde Park:

Off to dreamland. If I experience anything interesting, I'll post a report. Take care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22am Gaylord Fields:

I had always heard that if you have a falling dream and you hit the ground instead of waking before making impact, that means you will have died in your sleep in real life (which defies logic, because how would anyone know what a dead person's last dream was). When I finally had a falling dream, I hit the ground, exclaimed "Bullshit!" and woke up.
  1:22am P-90:

@ bob: Experiments done with this have involved learning to take conscious action in the dream, like you did when you tackled the cashier (!), but not waking up after the first action or two taken, like you did
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22am coelacanth:

'night Ken. Make 'em good ones.
Avatar 1:24am bobdoesthings:

@gaylord HAHAHAH that's great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25am Gaylord Fields:

I was a lucid and skeptical dreamer in my adolescence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am coelacanth:

Gaylord,i've had 2 falling dreams i recall. As you,in one i did hit the ground,then awoke.(i didn't exclaim"bullshit"!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29am coelacanth:

...the other i awoke right as i realized i could not grasp anything at the top edge of a bottomless hole through the earth,so i experienced extreme terror,and woke up.
  1:29am P-90:

@ DJ Gaylord: I've actually been shot more than once in dreams, fallen from heights, been attacked by wild animals; no worries, you can die repeatedly in dreams.
In the movie "Inception", they did a special kind of dreaming, in which you had to avoid getting killed in the dream because you would wake up immediately and be out of the action
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29am coelacanth:

(i guess that's not really a "falling" dream.)
Avatar 1:30am listener mark:

Hypnagogic dreams or hypnapompic dreams?
Avatar 1:31am bobdoesthings:

the only other one where I controlled my dream was a bear was chasing me in a busy suburban town center.. chasing me around a little town square.. and then I was realized it was a dream and just nonchalantly walked up the the charging bear and slapped wrestled with him like it was my cat.. and walked off. oh man I'm talking about dreams again.. I should go to bed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34am Gaylord Fields:

My subsconscous got its revenge when it pulled a double nightmare on me: I woke up from some stupid medium-scary nightmare with the requisite sense of relief, only to glance in the corner of my bedroom to see a figure of a man standing there — who subsequently came apart at all his joints and collapsed in a heap! After that, I really, truly woke up, pee-pants scared, and determined not to go back to sleep that night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35am Gaylord Fields:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35am coelacanth:

P-90 that sounds like a cool movie.

Yes i've definitely controlled dreams...When they become too absurd to believe,i realize it's a dream and stop taking it seriously.
  1:36am P-90:

As a kid I had a just a couple of really terrifying "falling" dreams, very vivid and memorable, I'm sure they were inspired by growing up in tall apartment buildings and being very aware of the danger of heights.
In these dreams, I would just fall and keep falling, without ever hitting the ground. And always accompanied by Carl Stalling's "falling" music from many Looney Tunes --you must know it, with the swirling strings and the rolling snare drum?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37am coelacanth:

Holy shit Gaylord,that's terrifying!
  1:41am P-90:

@ Gaylord: The genuine "dream within a dream", with the clear awareness of waking up that turns out not to be true, is also considered to be very rare.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41am Gaylord Fields:

@coelacanth: I must have been around 11 or 12 years old when that mega-nightmare occurred. I think I slept with the light on for several weeks afterward.
Avatar 1:42am bobdoesthings:

this reminds me of joe mcgasko's bed music
Avatar 1:42am bobdoesthings:

wait is it?
Avatar 1:43am Droll:

BDT - Hah! I was thinking the same thing!
  1:44am Santos L Halper:

I think close to it bob. I finally shazam'ed it today and it was from this record...
Avatar 1:45am bobdoesthings:

I can't believe I don't remember because I definitely have asked Joe via comment boards what it was more than once...
  1:45am Santos L Halper:

Was called Crystal Clear; this must be the vocal version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45am Gaylord Fields:

@P-90: It happened only that once, that I can recall, and that's more than enough.

Also, as an adult, I have many more recurring dreams than when I was a child.
  1:46am rw:

Kevin Ayers. I think Samantha may be commenting on all the dream talk.
Avatar 1:47am bobdoesthings:

alright. time to be a responsible bob and get some sleep. adios commentors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47am coelacanth:

Yeah I've had a few dreams that profoundly affected me for months.(or,forever?);some crazy scary ones.

I used to so often awake from bizarre dreams that i eventually took them for granted,to some degree.
  1:47am rw:

Sweet dreams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am coelacanth:

sweet lucid dreams.bob dt.
Avatar 1:48am listener mark:

I've had dreams that ended when an alarm clock or other loud noise would work it's way into the dream until it becomes the focus of my attention, then I'm awake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50am Gaylord Fields:

G'night, all! I'm off to have my most common form of dream: The kind where I wake up and have no recollection of having dreamt.
  1:51am rw:

I have those all the time... I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am coelacanth:

well,that's kinda boring; but it amounts to the most useful,restful sleep!
...g'night Gaylord.
  1:53am rw:

Yes. G'night Mr. Fields!
  1:53am P-90:

Some people report they never remember their dreams, often they even think they don't have them at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58am Gaylord Fields:

Final remark, and then sleepytime: I'll often wake with zero indication of having even dreamt — until something I encounter during the day will jog my memory and the dream emerges from nowhere!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59am coelacanth:

i think the prevailing attitude in psychological studies is that without the mental activity that results in dreams,one would eventually lose sanity. ...which may happen with serious alcoholics,since one doesn't reach alpha state when drunk.
Avatar 2:01am Kurt Gottschalk:

i had a dream gaylord fell on me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03am coelacanth:

was that a scary dream or a happy dream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04am Chop Scott:

Samantha! So great to hear you on air tonight! Cheers...
Avatar 2:04am Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05am coelacanth:

Ha! i knew it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06am Chop Scott:

Wait, joining now means I inherit Gaylord or Kurt's dreams? Yikes!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08am coelacanth:

...just Gaylord's recurring nightmares. Dont worry.
Avatar 2:11am Droll:

I have a dream diary on my nightstand chock full of tales of FMU DJs falling all over each other. I never dreamt they dreamt that, too.
Avatar 2:12am listener mark:

I dreamt I was at work. Didn't get paid for it.
Avatar 2:13am Droll:

LM, You're livin' the dream.
  2:13am P-90:

@ mark: what a nightmare
Avatar 2:19am listener mark:

This is a peppy radio programme.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20am coelacanth:

okay i'm going to see if i can muster up some fmu dj-falling-upon-each-other dreams,& take control of them (the dreams,that is!)...I don't know what most of them look like so the focus will probably be on various squeaky sounds they make as they're being landed upon. I plan to wake up laughing.

Thank you Samantha for a brilliant program! (i'm coming back for it again.)
sweet dreams,all.
