Good afternoon Jason. I like this stripped down version of a classic
Avatar 3:10pm Jason Elbogen:

Yes... Very nice I think.

Hi, fred & Jason. Future greetings to others as they stroll in.

hi guys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Doug Schulkind:

There is almost no difference between play Doueh and Playdough. And both mean good clean fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm fred:

Too much Cheveu and not enough Doueh on this track for me. Then again, I'm no fan of Cheveu
Avatar 3:24pm still b/p:

Play Doueh Fun Factory!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Doug Schulkind:

Careful, Jason. My wife is a law professor.
  3:28pm Dean:

You just nailed the real source of fear: AI will replace us as hobbyists!

The "law school is not worth it" meme is absurdly overstated. Read Michael Simkovic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm fred:

I only use google translate from languages I don't know at all (like Vietnamese or Japanese), so I can't tell what it's worth
Avatar 3:29pm Jason Elbogen:

Doug--your wife is a robot?
  3:31pm Dean:

Meanwhile, AI has been hyped for decades, and yet advances in digital technology have required the field to redefine itself, rather than progress concomitantly. We misplace way too much faith in the healing power of technology.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm fred:

Jason, if all your listeners were robots, would that be better than when the audio isn't getting out of the room?
  3:35pm Dean:

The question is: Which is the optimal robot listener? The one who occasionally requests "Free Bird" or the one who never requests it?
  3:36pm Dean:

Put another way, would requesting "Free Bird" be a function of artificial intelligence, or of artificial inebriation?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm fred:

@Dean: "AI will master natural language within 5 years" has been a claim ever since the field was named. This was already a joke when I graduated 20+ years ago (master in computer science with a major in AI)
  3:39pm Dean:

Amen, @fred. (Wait. There really is a @fred, right?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm fred:

@Dean: The optimal robot listener is the one that pledges a lot, then actually sends that money to the station.
I had a sticker years ago that read "artificial intelligence beats real stupidity", but the jury is still out on that (as a sample says on Rex' show). As for my existence, please refer to Scott William's playlist page GIF
Avatar 3:43pm Jason Elbogen:

Fred--I think it's much less of a joke now.
Avatar 3:43pm geezerette:

Hello Jason and assembled. Strolling in.
I'm enjoying all the human intelligence. :)
Avatar 3:46pm still b/p:

So, Alan Turing and Ronnie Van Zant walk into a bar...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm fred:

Speaking of robots and language, a coworker has been trying for a few years to get funding for his pet project: building a rapping robot. The man keeps refusing claiming the project lacks social impact
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm TristaC:

That song you were playing while you were speaking is one of this robot's favorite songs - Tezeta (nostalgia)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm fred:

@Jason: At least, English has "it". French doesn't and has to assign a gender to everything, which is confusing and stupid
Avatar 3:55pm still b/p:

Rappng robot would be tough....mixing proper and creative syntax, going beyond just rhythmic rhyme and patter to variations against the beat and satisfying the knowing ear with style and shape enough to be worth doing and approximating the real.
  3:56pm Dean:

I know the Scott Williams' GIF well!

Desperately trying to come up with a punch line for the Turing/Van Zant joke setup. Something involving spell-check...

I'm cool with gender assignment, if only because it affords opportunities for gender confusion. Barely related: Do you know Perec's La Disparition?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Webhamster Henry:

AI was stuck for decades in an almost "intelligent design"-like paradigm : we will build the dictionaries and databases, and it will know what we have told it to know. For the last 15 years or so, it's been more like, we now have the power and storage to throw lots of data at a self organizing network, and that's how machine learning and modeling will proceed. These processes are only getting faster, and I think Kurzweil is right in stating that this is an exponential process, not a linear one. Do not be fooled by the small amount of "progress" in AI - the principles its based on now are more like what happens biologically.
Avatar 3:58pm Jason Elbogen:

Let's have a contest: Which of you can respond to this comment with a comment that most convincingly proves he/she/it is not a robot.
  4:00pm Dean:

I just wonder what is being measured, linearly or exponentially.

Aha! The counter-Turing!
Avatar 4:01pm Jason Elbogen:

[By the way, Fred or anyone listeining--can you read Japanese, by chance?]
  4:01pm Dean:

If I can read Japanese, it will be purely by chance.
Avatar 4:01pm Jason Elbogen:

[I know a robot would be able to, as well. So feel free to chime in, my non-carbon-based friends]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm fred:

Los Emes Del Oso! Oso El Roto himself will make a rare appearance back in France next month, I'm really looking forward to this show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm fred:

@Jason: Was that Dadalu on vocals? The voice seemed familiar...
Avatar 4:11pm Jason Elbogen:

Fred--which song, the Russian rap one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm fred:

@Jason: No, Colectivo Etéreo. I found a facebook page, but it asks me to login to see the "about" page. It could be her, she'll be performing at the same show next month
Avatar 4:19pm Scraps:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Rich in Washington:

I watched the ('78, I think) episode of SNL with Carrie Fisher on it the other night, and in it, a recurring skit I've always loved - Bad (fill in the blank) with Leonard Pinth Garnell. This time it was Bad Red Chinese Opera. It was pretty hilarious.
I can see now why people thought early SNL was so cultish and intellectual - maybe too much so for its own good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm fred:

Doug hasn't posted since you called his wife a robot. The stream has been growing so fast lately, he's probably swamped with applications
Avatar 4:23pm Jason Elbogen:

Sorry, Fred... I don't know much about Colectivo Etereo. It was a CD-R in the new bin I just came across before the show.
Avatar 4:23pm Jason Elbogen:

Maybe Doug has been eliminated by his robot wife.
Avatar 4:24pm Jason Elbogen:

First they convince you they are human, and then they kill you.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Jason: paste in these Cyrillic characters for the album for "Dzaibatsu Point": Вот почему становишься революционером ("That's why you became a revolutionary") and the track is "Алпокалипсис нау" - Apocalypse Now"
Avatar 4:27pm Jason Elbogen:

How are the robots enjoying this track? Had enough? Should I fade out?
  4:27pm melinda:

This is interesting music.
Avatar 4:28pm Jason Elbogen:

Henry. Thanks, you are truly worthy of your name.
Avatar 4:28pm geezerette:

What's the story?

Avatar 4:30pm geezerette:

What's Hiroshi telling us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm fred:

@Jason: I should have tried the obvious first! According to the FMA (freemusicarchive.org...) it's her indeed: "5) Lo Real - Música y rap: Dadalú y Menda"
Avatar 4:31pm Scraps:

Avatar 4:33pm Jason Elbogen:

This is meditation music.
Avatar 4:35pm Scraps:

  4:37pm melinda:

I like it too Scraps.
Avatar 4:37pm geezerette:

But the rhythm and voices he's assuming are clearly a narrative.
  4:37pm melinda:

I mean "Scraps".
Avatar 4:38pm Scraps:

Avatar 4:39pm geezerette:

Maybe a lecture. Beautiful anyway and soothing. Sounds like Noh.
Love his voice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm fred:

@Scraps: How are you doing? I read about your health scare earlier today, I hope you're OK (you seem to be, unless you've be replaced by a robot)
Avatar 4:43pm Scraps:

@fred: I don't know. I seem to be, but last night was scary, and we don't know what was wrong, if anything. sigh.

Thank you.
Avatar 4:45pm Scraps:

I like the two vocalists (maybe more?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm fred:

This Hiroshi Mikado track sounded nice. But for all we know, it could have been the Japanese Kenny G reading the tax code and Mayuko didn't help because she's too busy laughing
Avatar 4:51pm Jason Elbogen:

Scraps - Hope you're ok.
  4:51pm ?:

According to this cdJapan post of what appears to be a reissue of the Teichiku issue: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/TECR-1007

...the auto-translated description reads:

Kimono Kannon Yuri Goro The Origin Volume / Kisugoro Volume of Conversion - Hiromi Sannomi

[New · Random Expert Special Series] A hit work by Teichiku one of the most famous Ranjaku rescued for the first time in about 20 years! This work contains works by Hiromami Hiroko. Conversation text, synopsis description, with Rokkashi profile.
  4:52pm Dean:

Not sure what "Ranjaku" or "Rokkashi" mean. (That's me above.)
Avatar 4:58pm Scraps:

Avatar 4:58pm geezerette:

That was wonderful.
  4:59pm Dean:

Or maybe the cdJapan post merely shares key terms with the Teichiku record.

Agreed. A captivating record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Webhamster Henry:

That's like when animator Michael Sporn's website got blacklisted. He died in 2015, but he was an excellent animator and had a great blog:

@Scraps: Better to go to the ER for nothing than not going when you should. In other words, your mild embarrassment is better than your funeral
Avatar 5:01pm Scraps:

@fred: Yep. I learned eight years ago.
  5:02pm melinda:

In Iowa City people referred to the Maharishi International University folks as floaters. I guess some of them claimed they could levitate slightly, perhaps while meditating.
Avatar 5:03pm Jason Elbogen:

yeah that was them...
Avatar 5:04pm Jason Elbogen:

yeah, the Maharish Institute. when/why were you in Iowa, Melinda?
  5:05pm melinda:

I went to the U of Iowa in the early 90s and stayed for 5 years after that.
Avatar 5:16pm Jason Elbogen:

Melinda--Whew! At least you had a couple of decades to work as a lawyer before robots replaced you. [
Avatar 5:16pm Jason Elbogen:

reference to beginning of today's show if you weren't around]
Avatar 5:20pm geezerette:

Great "crap" Jason!
Thoroughly digging.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm melinda:

haha, I got the lawyer reference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm fred:

If those Stylers were bad taste, what did your wife had to say about this Jackie & Moe cover?
Avatar 5:45pm Jason Elbogen:

I didn't need her to translate that one, Fred... and probably wouldn't understand the angle us present-day Westerners view these kinds of covers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm fred:

If you pull it off, it just proves you've been replaced by a robot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm melinda:

I like these Chet Long Singers.
Avatar 5:58pm geezerette:

This is so Dr. Strangelove of you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm fred:

Thanks Jason, see (well, hear) you next year

Thanks Jason!

It's more about the decoupling of sex and procreation, less about preserving life.
Avatar 6:02pm geezerette:

About the world. It's not over, but it's going to take a lot to turn things around.

Well, we're likely to elect a neo-nazi president soon, so make sure these plane tickets are refundable
