Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm coelacanth:

i like this guitar. reminds me of television. (...the band!)
  9:10pm jon:

hello efd and funky listeners. i still remember
  9:13pm sugarwolf:

OMG Sleeper....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm efd:

howdy sugarwold, coel, and jon! Yep, Sleeper alright!
  9:21pm clinton hensley:

My boy, Dylan says, "Hi, Evan!" He's still up because his mom is getting ready to head to NYC for a biz meeting set for early tomorrow morning. Guess she can get some sleep on the plane. Oh, what a long 24 hours for her. At least she gets to be back in her old stomping grounds. And he's digging your Bowie choice btw. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm efd:

Loretta, I would like to call your attention to the upcoming listing at the top of my main playlist index page. (click the "back to The Evan "Funk" Davies Show playlists" link over there on the left)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

nice, hi back to Dylan and safe travels Mrs. H!
  9:26pm Cheli:

Hi, Evan! If your speciality tonight is '70s obscurities, may I request something from the Outsiders' "Calling on Youth"?
  9:29pm Santos L Halper:

Evening efd. That Zombi was reminiscent of Dance on a Volcano era Genesis; intriguing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm efd:

shifting gears now Cheli, but I will make a note of that request -- I'm not familiar with it offhand.
  9:33pm Sal:

Some insane "oh wow" records tonight.
  9:36pm JakeGould:

Pretty sweet tip on Genya Ravan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm efd:

Evan "oh wow" Davies
  9:44pm clinton hensley:

Nice cadence, but I'd stick with "Funk".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm efd:

I have to, I'm too invested in the EFD brand at this point.
  9:48pm clinton hensley:

  9:48pm Eddy in Australia:

Hi Evan and fellow Funksters. Good to hear Genya Ravan. I didn't know she was involved with the CBGBs label (or how to pronounce her name, for that matter!). The guitar on that song reminded me of Thin Lizzy.
  9:50pm Eddy in Australia:

Re. Daniel Livingstone: Discogs is my default reference too, but he does show up on 45cat. Dutch!
  9:52pm Eddy in Australia:

Just scored a (green) vinyl 7" of that Sleeper single last week. Nice coincidence.
  9:53pm Yonkers Mike:

efd, this intense set is freaking me out. I'm trembling. maybe it's the Chinese food I ingested?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm efd:

hey Eddy! That is a funny coincidence! I think I found that 45cat listing too... I picked the record up in Amsterdam last fall so I wasn't surprised to learn he was Dutch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm efd:

It's gotta be the food, Mike!
  9:54pm JakeGould:

I once ate a batch of Newman’s Oreo Cookie rip offs and had the shakes. Just once. Could be I ate a bad batch.
  9:58pm clinton hensley:

I typed my name in the discogs search and a Shakira album came up. :) My go-to is AllMusic. There, I'm "eclectic and unpredictable" rather than a Colombian, female pop artist. Tomato - To-mah-to.
  9:59pm JakeGould:

Hey. That 8-Track tape you just played miscued.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm coelacanth:

"bruce juice in the morning" is part of why i gave up on wnew!...that and other stupid things they'd do and say, like after playing tracks from "armed forces" by elvis costello, "i don't know what he's so angry about."
...and ads for the u.s. army.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm coelacanth:

allmusic has so many ads and moving activity that my computer freezes up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm coelacanth:

this is where the "Funk Davies" comes from.
  10:09pm clinton hensley:

Yes, AllMusic is indeed glitchy.
  10:15pm Yonkers Mike:

I'm gonna test the "Intensity" theory:
Is it the efd playlist set or the Chinese take-out that is making me freak out.
I'll start eating again @ 10:30pm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm coelacanth:

this computer is a "snow leopard", refurbished c. 2011?...internet video is usually not gonna play through, and even some (ie Ken's and often Jesse Kaminski's) wfmu playlists slow it down a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm coelacanth:

are you feeling better now Mike?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Stevel:

Good evening. Hey Eddy, and all y'all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm coelacanth:

hello Stevel
  10:26pm clinton hensley:

I like the subtle Nick Drake-isms of Cian.
  10:31pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Snow Leopard is solid, but web browsers choke. I just accepted a position as a developer for the first time in ages. And it’s going to be “fun”: They have mobile app needs and my debugging skills were a bit selling point. So I need to test things to make sure batteries don’t explode when GIFs load. So hey.
  10:33pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: FWIW, my obtuse connection is web pages that simply seem “slow” on an older machine can pretty much drain batteries on mobile devices to the point of overheating. So this is a new world I am stepping into that is somehow connected to the old world of browser nonsense.

  10:42pm JakeGould:

Geez! They really did just do some dot-matrix printout of the lyrics. twitter.com...
  10:44pm KP:

Some Velvet Rats on Rafts
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm efd:

I don't even think it's dot matrix -- it's even more old-school than that!
  10:51pm JakeGould:

@efd: Daisy wheel? Makes sense. When they taught me programming in the 1980s in public school it was on punch cards with output on paper just like that. Mind tons of folks had 1980s personal computers at home… But we were “taught” that way. Anyway, you have a genuine relic!
  10:54pm clinton hensley:

Thanks for another great show, E. Gotta send Mrs. H off and be relatively functional for the little man tomorrow. Thanks again. c
  11:02pm spodiodi:

That was pleasant.
  11:03pm Danne D:

Hey EFD :)
Hey Funk Friends :)
  11:04pm spodiodi:

Hey hey, Funkke D
  11:05pm Michael from the Left Coast:

but Barenaked Ladies did a tv theme song for one of the most popular shows of this era--so it' s no surprise that OMD ( who have been out of the touring marketplace for some time) would be opening for them, although it may offend our aesthetic sensibilities

Forgot to say helloss. Damn, I gotta jump in 15 minutes, thanks efd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Andrew Waterloo:

It's alright Evan, we can dream
  11:15pm JakeGould:

Even if “Barenaked Ladies” wrote a new national anthem for Canada, they would still be the opposite of what rock is. They suck. They are just horrible.
  11:16pm kreplach:

what is this??? 9:16 mstd
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm coelacanth:

Jake, (@10:31) it has been dependable,usually. there have been problems a few times that i never got explanations for, but they got worked out anyway...except the video/gif thing. that started maybe a year after i bought it and nothing helps. my "activity monitor" goes to "firefox 106.--% usage" when a youtube video is high-def or longer than a few minutes.
...but of course, one by one, compatible programs are no longer available for it.
so...what do you mean by "web browsers choke"?
Avatar 11:17pm northguineahills:

@kreplach: running?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm efd:

@kreplach, yeah, that was Running.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Andrew Waterloo:

Barenaked ladies is for nice people.
  11:19pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: What I meant by web browsers choking is just what you describe. Web browsers were never initially designed for multimedia, but they are now being pushed to the limits. Thus what you experience. And heck, my iPhone 6S can heat if I screw up a bit of JavaScript code. I know it screws up because my phone physically gets hotter with some sloppy code. Sign of inefficient code and battery being drained too quickly. And thus heat. And in your laptop it just means the system chokes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm coelacanth:

hmm,okay. Thanks...but, i still have my windows xp desktop, and videos are not a problem with it. why's that?
(i wont be offended if you don't want to pursue this!..and i'll end it soon anyway.)
  11:24pm JakeGould:

“Anglo Girl Desire?” What’s an anglo girl’s desire? Frozen yogurt and macarons?
  11:26pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Core OS and systems differences that are too pedantic to get into. At the end of the day I will say if you have no need for Windows or Mac OS X I would recommend just getting a laptop that can handle Ubuntu Linux. Sounds “weird” but desktop Ubuntu is useful for 99% of most people’s needs and things just work tons better. But that’s all I can add for now because I am a bit drunk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm coelacanth:

Thanks Jake!
...you just opened a can of worms, but i'll put it in the fridge.
  11:32pm JakeGould:

“Dark Blue” That voice. Gezzus.
  11:35pm Yonkers Mike:

I'm getting the vibes of Macro Parker and Egg Shen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm coelacanth:

i can't help but think of Scott Walker/Sunn o))) when i hear dark blue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Stevel:

Killer show, per usual. Off and away from the board, until next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm efd:

thanks Stevel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm coelacanth:

i'm next.
Thanks Evan!
ciao Funkies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm efd:

goodnight coel!
  11:54pm JakeGould:

Wait… So this is where Unrest ripped off “Winona Ryder” from? Mind blown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Andrew Waterloo:

Family Fodder seems to cover a few different left fields.
