Cool version of this song! The Deerhunter was also great.

Dallas Taylor, to add to the losses

they were on his tv show i guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12am coelacanth:

yeh excellent drummer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am jj.:

i played this because i thought dallas taylor died today, too, but it was actually a year ago today. stupid internet!
Avatar 12:14am Alejandroool:

right... it's officially rendering us less than savvy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am coelacanth:

mott the hoople drummer Dale Griffin died today.
Avatar 12:15am Alejandroool:

that is correct.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18am coelacanth:

i was literally just completing 6 collages of 2015 casualties for my profile page here when i learned of Bowie's exit.
...i can't fucking keep up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am coelacanth:

sweet! i forgot about this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am Bronwyn Bishop:

Never heard this one before, thanks JJ!
  12:22am MONEYBAG$:

that is that one Bowie album I never owned...I mean, besides all the ones after scary monsters
Avatar 12:24am Alejandroool:

this Guerilla Toss is great, thanks JJ!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37am coelacanth:

is "jamaican" the actual record label? i'm not finding anything on that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am jj.:

it's listed as "jamaican recordings" - www.jamaicanrecordings.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39am coelacanth:

Thanks! i just found it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am coelacanth:

damn - that site's hard to use!
Avatar 12:44am Knile:

Oh, of COURSE this is Jeff Bridges. I meant to track this whole jawn down and never quite had. Now I don't know if I want to :)
  12:52am rw:

That Jeff Bridges LP made good Xmas gifts for a couple of my friends. Plus the proceeds are donated to help feed kids.
  12:52am rw:

And hello!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am Bronwyn Bishop:

This is beautiful and that was a lovely segue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am jj.:

i enjoyed the tracks in a sound-arty way. didn't try to sleep to it, though. can't believe they put it out on LP. i hope there's a cassette version, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57am coelacanth:

greetings rw
  12:59am rw:

Yeah, there's a cassette. Probably a better way to go since it's called Sleeping Tapes. I went with LP for gifts just because I thought LPs were nice as fetishistic objects (though I was torn).

Hey coelacanth!
Avatar 1:00am Alejandroool:

bowie is secretly elvis' blackstar, hey and welcome rw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01am Bronwyn Bishop:

Yay Elvis! And oh my, the lyrics are just eerie now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04am coelacanth:

ha! the original by Jacob Miller was kinda confusing when i first heard it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am coelacanth:

it's a C song...shouldn't it be up to him?
Avatar 1:09am Alejandroool:

the pyramid will be undone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am coelacanth:

i'm already well-pummeled, thank you.
Avatar 1:14am ! I X Key !:

Can you please write your twitter down I missed it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15am jj.:

oh, sure, i'm at @bourgwick.
  1:16am P-90:

Hey jj and everyone. Here's hoping the rest of the week will flow by with no more prominent losses.
  1:16am rw:

Just remembered that Elvis died on my birthday when I was at the bottom of the Grand Canyon and he was on the toilet.

Hey Alejandroool.
Avatar 1:25am ! I X Key !:

@bourgwick There!
  1:25am rw:

Oh, and hello P-90. Yes, it's been a weird enough year so far.
Avatar 1:27am Alejandroool:

heya P-90 and Key - Simon Mathewson's album name = harsh
Avatar 1:28am Alejandroool:

I was never really good at Marble Madness
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30am Ike:

Marble Madness! I always wished there were more levels. There was a sequel that was never released, and it's never turned up as a ROM for MAME, either.
  1:30am walkspot:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31am jj.:

i was never any good at MM either, but the visuals/architecture has haunted me for years.
Avatar 1:31am ! I X Key !:

oh i looooooved marble madness
Avatar 1:33am Alejandroool:

ya those wobbly lookin' "floors"...
Avatar 1:33am ! I X Key !:

I played across from the middle school
Avatar 1:34am ! I X Key !:

! The weight of these sounds has been awesome on my eardrums (o:
  1:35am walkspot:

This is all marble madness?
I guess i only know level 1, lol
Avatar 1:35am ! I X Key !:

my audiophile eardrums
  1:35am rw:

I must be too old. I've never heard of Marble Madness. There's a guy out here on the west coast who has (or maybe had) a radio show on KXLU playing only video game music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37am jj.:

yeah, walkspot, i think that was music from each level of the game.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38am Ike:

I've always hoped to find a good knockoff online w/more levels but nothing ever looks or feels right. The original MM can't be duplicated, it seems.
Avatar 1:41am Alejandroool:

I guess marbles were able to survive the digital age, at least for a little bit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42am coelacanth:

no offense to any one but i feel fortunate to have essentially missed the video game fixation.
Avatar 1:44am ! I X Key !:

no offense to you but you sure missed out
Avatar 1:44am Alejandroool:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44am coelacanth:

i would've been pretty good on them too...but i've got enough to rob my time as it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46am coelacanth:

well,!!, as i said, i feel fortunate. i've never been bored in my life.
Avatar 1:47am Alejandroool:

I must say, every time I've sat down in rare circumstances where I've replayed some of those old games for nostalgia, doesn't last too long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am Ike:

Marble Madness playthrough video:
Avatar 1:52am ! I X Key !:

I hate games they make me play them & be not productive
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55am jj.:

i'm not a video game nostalgist by any stretch, but some of the early digital music/sounds have pretty singular tonal colors. i probably associate with them strongly because of my y00th, etc., but i think there's a richness to some of those sounds that i don't hear repeated elsewhere.
Avatar 1:56am Alejandroool:

yea there's something kinda warm sounding about those tones too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57am coelacanth:

okay just watched that video and yes it looks fun; but still i don't think i've been deprived.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01am coelacanth:

Alej i don't quite understand your avatar! (even so i like it! it's spooky.)
Avatar 2:04am Alejandroool:

coela - the singer/guitar player in a group I play in, he edited some video for a track of ours, it's a screengrab from it - demolished buildings and those eyes - hah yes spooky/grim
Avatar 2:05am Alejandroool:

I should pick something a little more friendly looking perhaps !
Avatar 2:05am Alejandroool:

or go back to civic tv
  2:06am walkspot:

The sound effect the game makes when your marble falls off is beautiful and poignant
Avatar 2:07am Alejandroool:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07am coelacanth:

i don't know, i guess! i think you should use it for an album cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08am coelacanth:

okay then!
Avatar 2:08am Alejandroool:

yes - maybe on cassettes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09am coelacanth:

i'll go back to that video. i muted it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11am coelacanth:

i bookmarked it. i don't know how i missed your bandcamp page, A.
Avatar 2:18am Alejandroool:

oh - cheers coela, the sounds for that project are more of the fugazi-like variety it seems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22am coelacanth:

Thanks for saying...i'll wait 'till the weekend to listen to it then - when i can crank it up. (i'll be out of town from tue.am 'till fri pm)
Avatar 2:23am Alejandroool:

right on. out of town = into the solar system, right? beyond beyond is beyond is beyond
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26am coelacanth:

i'm following Bowie. www.wsj.com...
Avatar 2:30am Alejandroool:

3 Billion light years away
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33am coelacanth:

so you're saying i should pack a lunch.
  2:34am Jack D:

Radical transition
Avatar 2:37am Alejandroool:

a lunch - and maybe dinner, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40am coelacanth:

lights out.
Thank you. truly Excellent program Jesse!
