Brilliant opener! Will it be all downhill from here???

Hey efd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm efd:

are you kidding, Todd? I always play the worst song of the show first so the show just gets better!
Avatar 9:06pm Todd-o-phonic:

Ahh...savvy veteran move!
  9:12pm clinton hensley:

Hey, brother. Listening for as long as I can. Last Snow Day has been confirmed. Son has accepted it. I haven't yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Kat in Chicago:

Yes, this is my singing voice!
  9:21pm will:

Non-LP or pre-LP version of "No Tomorrow" right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

nope -- direct from the OG LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...efd time...ah yes, ah yes...

This is nice.

Did you say Citizen had a "low-rent sparks vibe"? I'm in.
Avatar 9:35pm FernandoBelmondo:

Hi Evan! Please, never quit playing Boogarins. They're records are so great.

it's a deal Fernando!

dark blue is john sharkeys new band (puerto rico flowers, clockcleaner) theres a full length on jade tree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Kat in Chicago:

Evan, it's nice to know that even a veteran like you has to go to the internet to figure out how to pronounce an occasional artist name. I do that at least once a show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm coelacanth:

i would not have guessed that. "kee-an".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Jeezy:

@Stevei I had two VERY powerful Old Fashioneds...
  9:55pm shanghi1:

I had assumed it was just another fancy version of Sean or Shawn or Shaun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm coelacanth:

(me too)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm efd:

@shanghi, me too! Glad I looked it up! (Not unusual for me either, Kat, except for the doing it on the air part.)
  9:56pm shanghi1:

What's in an Old Fashioned?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm efd:

Thanks for the Dark Blue info, smiler!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm efd:

(i'm ignoring the knife)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Jeezy:

An Old Fashioned is basically whisley, water, bitters and a little sugar. That's it! It helps that I forgot to eat and weigh 130 LBs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm Jeezy:

  10:01pm shanghi1:

Maybe you should have a nice big bowl of Irish stew and sprinkle some bitters on there!
  10:01pm Ignore Function:

Roger Lion reminds me of Joe Pernice. The vocals, at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm coelacanth:

Jeez,that was old-fashioned and very whistley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm efd:

take a look at the comment next to that song in the playlist, Ignore Function. :)
Avatar 10:04pm slugluv1313:

<3 oh David <3
  10:04pm clinton hensley:

:) Glad I haven't fallen asleep. Thanks for great hour, evan - one of my fav. songs as a nightcap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm coelacanth:

when i'm drunk i crave a bowl of walnuts with many cloves of sliced raw garlic,flax oil and ume vinegar,and pepper...but that's me.
  10:06pm Ignore Function:

Had to switch to a different computer device. I got one right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm efd:

hey Clinton, nice to see you here - sleep well. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Bowie was both intimidating & empowering. & is.
  10:08pm shanghi1:

I would try that .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm coelacanth:

sounds like autobon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Kat in Chicago:

I like these cosmic East German Olympians.
Avatar 10:11pm Ham:

just made a note of your walnut & garlic recipe, coelacanth. that sounds delicious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm coelacanth:

i decided (a few weeks ago) to listen to every Bowie album that i don't know like the back of my hand (so,all but about 8) in order of their release. but i need to wait a little longer to do that.
  10:12pm Eric Hat:

Yes! There's a sweet propaganda video to this Kosmischer Laufer track on the YouTube. Uplifting.
Avatar 10:13pm slugluv1313:

@ coelacanth -- sounds yummy, even if NOT drunk! and yes, this does indeed sound like Autobahn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Stevel:

Old fashions are terrific drinks. I'm recently fond of whiskey. Partly because I drink it a lot slower than gin or tequila.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm coelacanth:

haha! i'm home! -i expected to be treated as a leper for divulging that dish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm melinda:

I love this kosmich olympic music but what I've heard so far is relaxing, seems like it might put athletes to sleep.
  10:18pm JakeGould:

Is this from the real East German Olympic program, or is it fauxstaligic homage?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Ike:

@Jake, some/most of the DJs seem to think it's new fake history, as far as I can tell. Ha ha, good word there -- "fauxstalgic". Yes, that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Kat in Chicago:

Good question there. I did look at the playlist to make sure it wasn't on Ghost Box.
  10:24pm Eric Hat:

The video I watched claims the piece is from the year 1977...either way, tis bangin'.
  10:25pm Andrew:

Is "Station to Station" part of the Berlin trilogy? I always thought it started with "Low."
  10:25pm JakeGould:

@Ike: We live in a fauxstalgic world. For example, so many “olde timey” Brooklyn places like to hearken back to the 1950s and earlier… But few people actually want to open up an authentic 1970s NYC shop. I can ramble about this stuff for hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm coelacanth:

Andrew yes. low; heroes; lodger...but it's said that sts was leading to the trilogy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm coelacanth:

(whatever that means!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm coelacanth:

okay now i cannot stop thinking about whiskey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm efd:

you're right Andrew, I just accidentally squeezed Station To Station in there. It always seemed Berlin-y to me!
  10:31pm JakeGould:

@efd: Always felt like a prequel to “Low” to me.
  10:33pm Andrew:

I totally agree - it is definitely a transition record - a bit of blue-eyed soul and a bit of teutonic chill
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Stevel:

Definitely a good record to drink whiskey by.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm coelacanth:

that settles it!
  10:38pm JakeGould:

@Stevel: Is there anything in America that people won’t drink to? I was walking around in the middle of the blizzard in the middle of the street and there were fresh beer cans all over the place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm chad from oregon:

The whole album arc from Station To Station though Scary Monsters has a pretty solid flow though. Lodger and Scary Monsters feel like cousins to me.
  10:41pm gary:

i used to love doing lines on the Jale CD cover! great album! you made my night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm coelacanth:

i wouldn't drink beer in the snow. (and i wouldn't litter it with the empties either...) whiskey and brandy i consider more suited to snow drinking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm coelacanth:

...or ouzo or hot sake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Stevel:

JakeGould: No.

I agree with Fish. Beer in the snow seems silly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm coelacanth:

dug that sea mammal music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Stevel:

Sea mammals rule.
  10:49pm JakeGould:

I drank Korean hooch in the blizzard. Helped me get drunk!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm coelacanth:

haha! ...fleep thinks so!

Jake what's that like?
  10:50pm JakeGould:

Soju. Cheap, stronger than Sake and clean. en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 10:51pm Todd-o-phonic:

Sunday night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm coelacanth:

hmm. my second favorite of the 4 sushi places in my town is owned by koreans. i'm going to ask. Thanks.
(although i rarely drink with meals)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm efd:


Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm coelacanth:

forgiving you is like breathing.
  11:01pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: FWIW, basic Soju is like 21-25 proof. But the stuff I drank this blizzard was Chumchurum which is specifically marketed to “women” but was 18-19 proof. Since it’s slightly less proof it’s considered a “woman’s” drink. Think about that for a second. 18-19 proof is “weak?” en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm coelacanth:

well,it's weaker than regular wine.
  11:02pm JakeGould:

@efd: I don’t donate money to WFMU for perfection. Kudos to the flaws!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm efd:

thank goodness, JakeGould, or we'd all be out on the street by now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm coelacanth:

..but, a "woman's drink"?! those assholes! i know women who easily shame many dudes,if you should call it "shame"!
...and my own tolerance fluctuates wildly.
  11:05pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Let me state that again… 18-19 proof whiskey is considered “women’s” hooch to Koreans. That’s nuts! That’s 3x higher than most American beer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm coelacanth:

oh no Jake, that's 19.5%...39 proof!...that's not that weak.
  11:08pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Okay, whatever… That is still strong for what it is. Casual hooch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Bob in Oakland:

My GF was very excited about the track that just ended (as was I). Silver Sun is one of her all-time favorite combos!
  11:09pm JakeGould:

Ack. I mixed it all up. Look at us all here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm coelacanth:

it's strong enough!
...i'm rarely on a mission to get drunk. i like getting a buzz (usually) in a social circumstance...but i like the ritual; i only drink what i truly enjoy; and i really hate feeling like shit the next day.
  11:12pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: My philosophy nowadays too. Mainly drink to be social or for special occasions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm coelacanth:

the butterscotch cathedral was excellent! the name reminds me of many of the bands on "the fringe factory"...so silly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm coelacanth:

(...but such goodness)
