hello Therese and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05am coelacanth:

Great version! never heard this.
  12:06am rw:

Hey kids.
Avatar 12:06am BadGuyZero:

Hiya from Cleveland!
  12:07am rw:

coelacanth, I may have been quicker on the World of Echo playlist but yours was funnier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07am coelacanth:

  12:13am JakeGould:

That first “Shocking Blue” album is really amazing.
  12:13am PMD:

Love it all so far. Darn it. As I need to go to bed!
  12:14am JakeGould:

Whoops! I meant to say, SECOND album. FORGIVE ME PLEASE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am coelacanth:

well, the first one with Mariska,right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am coelacanth:

...and i like "scorpio's dance" just as much.
Avatar 12:21am BadGuyZero:

"Antiques Barn" is my favorite Glen Campbell song.
Avatar 12:22am BadGuyZero:

Billy Carter's Lockjaw Lager
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23am coelacanth:

i wouldn't have minded "gentle on my mind".
  12:23am rw:

As I recall, Billy Beer was created at a time when collecting beer cans was quite popular.
Avatar 12:23am BadGuyZero:

Come play with us, Therese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26am coelacanth:

i used to collect cans (& bottles)...'never did get billy beer. i was very casual about it.
when i moved out of my mother's apartment i took 5-600 bottles and cans to a friend's wrap around porch,lined them up and left.
someone eventually took them all.
Avatar 12:27am BadGuyZero:

Maybe they're paying tribute to Sha Na Na and Lola Falana with their name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28am coelacanth:

...and it's the first way -"shah-na" . (she's a friend of mine)
  12:29am PMD:

She's the friend of my ex's sister. Is that 2 or 3 degrees of separation?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

On your week off, Therese, you missed something here. We were all set to celebrate Shuggie Otis' birthday last Monday. Maybe the next time it comes around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31am coelacanth:

hahaha! something like that!
...now i wonder if i ever met your ex's sister...but probably not.
  12:31am JakeGould:

Billy Carter hawked the beer, but drank PBRs in private. oldbeerads.blogspot.com...
  12:33am PMD:

She lives in New Palz
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33am coelacanth:

that's interesting. maybe that admission had something to do with the beer not selling!
  12:35am JakeGould:

Everybody be playing “The Cure” this week. That and “Beat Happening.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am coelacanth:

PMD i may have met her then!...but not necessarily via Shana. She and i aren't that close,and i haven't seen her much since she moved north of new paltz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42am coelacanth:

that's odd that "plastic passion" appears on a "b-sides and rarities" album. is the boys don't cry album rare? (...i kinda hope so!)
  12:43am rw:

So... it's "shah-na" but is it "fa-lah-na" or "fa-lay-na"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am coelacanth:

it rhymes; like "havana banana" only an "ah" sound!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am Therese:

the Boys Don't Cry album is rare enough that we don't have it on our library! I had to take it from the Join the Dots box.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am coelacanth:

(okay,well not quite...)
  12:45am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: The issue is—as I recall—is that “Boys Don’t Cry” was a U.S. rejiggering of the U.K. “Three Imaginary Boys” and some singles. Since “Three Imaginary Boys” has some of the wince-worthy stuff Cure fans are baffled by. So it was a pseudo compilation of sorts.
Avatar 12:45am BadGuyZero:

@coelcanth: "Boys Don't Cry" is the U.S. version of "Three Imaginary Boys" with an altered tracklist. "Plastic Passion" isn't on "Three Imaginary Boys."
Avatar 12:45am BadGuyZero:

JakeGould types faster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am coelacanth:

i know; i have both. but Thank you!
i guess when i die i'll leave my boys don't cry album to wfmu.
  12:50am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: You meant to say, “i know; i have both. *sips tea, smokes clove cigarette*”
  12:50am JakeGould:

Yay for Lush!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51am coelacanth:

Jake i think there's just 1 wince-worthy track on 3 i.b. and their cover of foxy lady is fantastic! so is "meat hook",in my opinion.
...and yes, that's what i meant!
  12:53am JakeGould:

“Foxy Lady” is not what “The Cure” is about. *slams copy of Camus’ “The Stranger” on the coffee table*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am coelacanth:


*head low,almost inaudibly*: "i know."
  1:02am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Your share at the patchouli CSA is at risk now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16am coelacanth:

hem,excuse me Jake but i'm the head chairperson of the patchouli csa so, i don't think so!
  1:23am sara:

it's kind of crazy and maybe a little sad how she ended up being used as a tea party shill. but that's her opinion it seems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33am coelacanth:

i didn't know that sara. it's sad; but then i'm sure there are many people i respect from a musical perspective that i'd consider idiots on political,socio-political,environmental, etc. issues.
on one hand i'm glad i usually don't know; on the other i'd sooner steal than buy music from people that i think are part of the problem!
  1:36am sara:

well a lot of years did pass since the vu days she had a bunch of kids and grandkids and maybe a phone company job. don't know what else she went through.
  1:40am JakeGould:

@sara: The more I read and hear and learn about anyone who creates anything the more I am of the opinion that honestly there are 100% no saints out there creating anything and some aspect of their off-stage persona might be wretched. Which is to say: I appreciate the art.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40am brendanswfmuaccount:

I actually saw Joanna Newsom tonight in Boston. Great performance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42am coelacanth:

yes; and it's not like she was the voice of velvet underground.
...i find particularly interesting a quote i just read:"I have come to believe (not just wonder) that Obama's plan is to destroy America from within".
maybe,maybe not; but that's basically how i feel about both bushes and reagan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43am coelacanth:

brendan i'm jealous.
Avatar 1:44am egal:

For every Pete Seeger, there's a Ted Nugent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47am brendanswfmuaccount:

It was great. She did a little over an hour and then three one song encores (don't get me started). She did a lot from the new record. I wish she had more time for the "hits" but you can only play so much in 90 minutes when half your songs clock in at eight minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am coelacanth:

exactly egal.
  1:59am sara:

i like after hours a lot too, that's why i looked into what she was up too. i still like how she played drums, i guess it just feels like she might be easily duped, or not everyone is a band leader, we all have our weaknesses in the end
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10am Tome:

great Show Therese once again Happy ( mild so far ) December !

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23am coelacanth:

we're fragile creatures. i cut my thumb tonight on seaweed!
Avatar 2:26am BadGuyZero:

A few days ago while making breakfast I accidentally dropped something I was about to put it in a heated skillet. I tried to catch it and in doing so one of my fingers made contact with the skillet. Now I have a nice brand/scar running about 1/4 the length of my finger on the knuckle side.
  2:26am JakeGould:

I used to get paper cuts all the time. Worked in a college bookstore and then at a small book publisher. Constant paper cuts. Ever used those pasty glue tape dispensers with the dirty water? Anyway, that’s why I always carry band aids in my wallet: PTSD from paper cuts.
  2:36am sara:

paper cuts are the worst
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37am coelacanth:

BGZ that's the kind of thing i do. my reflexes are quick but still somehow dysfunctional.
  2:59am JakeGould:

If anyone here meets me in person and has a minor cut, hit me up for a band aid.
  3:00am sara:

hope the scar fades too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01am coelacanth:

Thanks Therese!
