Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Does the full tank of connectivity include a premium?
Avatar 10:07pm Little Danny:

Chresssttiii, still b/peeeeeeee - welcome, friends
Avatar 10:08pm Little Danny:

I love the fetish-objects of postwar prosperity
Avatar 10:09pm Little Danny:

"full tank of connectivity" sounds like a bad Beck lyric
  10:11pm MrFab:

Hey all! "I love the fetish-objects of postwar prosperity" - a friend of mine just gave me a splendiferous coffee-table book called "Populuxe" all about just such totems.
Avatar 10:12pm still b/p:

We should sit in a circle and pass such fetish objects around and think about their power. Or pound a shitload of nails into them, as is done with some other fetish objects.
Avatar 10:12pm coelacanth∅:

my mother had an esso tiger tail; and i got a hess truck for xmas one year, even though as far as i know my parents ONLY used esso. it couldn't be filled and emptied, but it did have working lights and fake smoke from the exhause pipe.
Avatar 10:15pm coelacanth∅:

i remember glass drinking glasses (mobile?) and aluminum coins (shell)...then everything turned to plastic.
Avatar 10:15pm Little Danny:

MrF: just googled the book. I will be ordering
Avatar 10:15pm Little Danny:

Esso's game was STRONG
Avatar 10:18pm still b/p:

I remember getting little plastic toy antique cars, from Citgo I think, in late 60s. Remember when gas stations were all into games for a while...matching halves of fake money bills to win and such..?
Avatar 10:18pm coelacanth∅:

oh yeah. my parents' brand loyalty was such that i felt a little ashamed when i bought shell when i started driving!
Avatar 10:19pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, I still have my Esso die cast service island with two detachable pumps. Although, on the west coast we had Enco stations, but the sineage was the same.
Avatar 10:20pm northguineahills:

I remember the Hess (do they still exist?
) vehicles in the 90s. I think Exxon did something similar in the 80s.
Avatar 10:21pm still b/p:

I had a Shell gas-pump-suggestive transistor radio...but that was something you had to purchase, not a premium. I think it was dropped into the saltwater and lost off a dock.
Avatar 10:22pm Little Danny:

@ngh: oh my god yes, HESS
Avatar 10:23pm Franco Twinkie:

Gulf stations would give out vacuformed " No Knock" horse shoes with sticky glue pads that would fuck up your paint when it got hot outside.
  10:24pm MrFab:

Tjader! Dnny! Vibes!
"Populuxe" has great pics a-plenty, but the text is also interesting, pointing out how no one really knew how to live in post-war suburbs. it was all so new, e.g. freezers were slow to catch on due to getting frostbit fingers trying to extract ice-encrusted objects. Heh heh...
  10:29pm chresti:

76 ball!
Avatar 10:31pm northguineahills:

Still at work, please kill me (was here Sunday/Monday until 3am).
Avatar 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

populuxe at least one available from NOT AMAZON!
Avatar 10:34pm coelacanth∅:

Franco that sounds awesome! (@10.19)
Avatar 10:34pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yeah, 76 balls! We would go through the parking lot of Food Giant and see who could steal the most balls off car antennas.
Avatar 10:35pm coelacanth∅:

i never saw a single 76 fuel station when i was little. (but i knew of it via magazine ads)
  10:40pm chresti:

Like the
Vibraphone sound
I’m listening on the phone while the desktop is on in the other room, resulting in a delay/echo effect
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm melinda:

hi all
Avatar 10:41pm Little Danny:

Hi Melinda!
Avatar 10:42pm Little Danny:

Haha chresti, I know exactly the effect you speak of
Avatar 10:42pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, I got it at the Toy Bin, which in 1967 was way ahead of the curve 'cause they had a box of plastic hippies for your model train set. I'm sure Frank Zappa was inspired to write Who Needs The Peace Corps when he saw these...that's just idle speculation, but what ever.
  10:42pm chresti:

I grew up where 76 owned most of the land
  10:44pm MrFab:

Toy plastic hippies! I have a bag of li'l mexican wrestlers, but no hippies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm melinda:

I like the idea of a postwar prosperity fetish object circle. Some of my favorites are mid-century motel postcards and matchbooks.
  10:45pm chresti:

Santa Barbara county
Avatar 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

Franco plastic hippies! that's what we see today in fashion magazines and ads for clothing
Avatar 10:47pm coelacanth∅:

i'd like to glue a crowd of plastic hippies and mexican wrestlers onto the dashboard of my car
  10:47pm chresti:

Wow crazy summertime!
Avatar 10:49pm Franco Twinkie:

As Charles Bukowski once said:"These kids just don't know."
Avatar 10:49pm coelacanth∅:

hi melinda
- i used to collect matchbooks and postcards (as well as bottles, bottle caps, beer paraphernalia and other stuff)
Avatar 10:51pm coelacanth∅:

Franco yeah, the peace sign is a fashion accessory, like, strangely, the skateboard seems to have become.
  10:52pm chresti:

Franco sorry you didn’t get tha plastic hippy for your special day!
Avatar 10:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Like the peace symbol could be dangerous to your health if you wore on in the wrong crowd. Today, the skateboard can be....you know where i'm going with this.
  10:55pm MrFab:

I have some of those postcards melinda, and a couple bowls of matchbooks. Not to mention cocktail/bar stuff, tikis, pulp paperbacks, hawaiian shirts, ashtrays, lamps...oh, and records. Got some of them.
Avatar 10:55pm Little Danny:

Just want an unpeeled STP sticker over here
  10:55pm chresti:

I like that idea, coel
Avatar 11:00pm coelacanth∅:

ha - i just opened an email about a product line by the "mad hippie" company.
Avatar 11:01pm Franco Twinkie:

The STP factory was not to far from where I grew up. thus the area was flooded with stickers -small,medium and large. You were The Shit if you had the large one on your Pee-Chee folder at Flanner Elementary School in the 60's.
Avatar 11:03pm northguineahills:

went to get something out of my car at the office, and there was a juvenile doe right next to it. It then jumped over a drainage ditch into a meadow, stared at me as I took pics, and then slipped through a hole in the fence of the property (office park).
Avatar 11:07pm Little Danny:

That sounds like some sort of omen, NGH. Amazing
  11:09pm chresti:

The Kwistas sounded like rawhide
  11:10pm chresti:

Avatar 11:11pm northguineahills:

I should be done in 15 minutes. I'm at 70+hours this week, and got shit on today b/c I thought I should do some errands and show up at 2pm. I got my fiscal year report done on time yesterday, painted last night and today, what the bloody fuck, as long as I get shit done correct, who the fuck cares??!! (I think my boss is having a bad week after a vacation, as he's usually tre chill)
  11:16pm chresti:

Maybe the boss is expecting higher ups, ngh
Avatar 11:23pm northguineahills:

You might be on to something, chresti. Ok, I'm done going to my friends show and probably end up comatose. Salud, todos!
  11:26pm chresti:

Bye ngh rest

Late arrival, hi all !
Avatar 11:43pm Little Danny:

Docjazz! You just missed the primo Scandanavian jazz
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm doctorjazz:

I see, have to check it out in the archives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm chresti:

I, too, like spooky songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm doctorjazz:

Who are the Scandinavian jazz artists? Family emergency came up, daughter brought home double fried Korean fried chicken What was I supposed to do?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm chresti:

Avatar 11:52pm coelacanth∅:

yeah this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm chresti:

Thanks much Danny
  11:52pm MrFab:

Danny's still jammin chresti. Tech issues at your end I'm guessin.
Avatar 11:53pm Little Danny:

So many '50s/'60s Scandinavian greats, docjazz - I'll list some faves some other time. But an appealingly and appropriately icy sound if one were to generalize
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm doctorjazz:

Using my phone, but use the link on the FMU home page prefer it to the app. Still coming through loud and clear .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm doctorjazz:

ECM records has some current Scandinavian jazz players they do have a style
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm chresti:

yeah, the phone is slower but sounds great-thanks I'll try that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm doctorjazz:

That's it slower to go from the home page, but I think it sounds better..
Avatar 11:58pm Little Danny:

ECM really is THAT sound moved into the '70s and '80s
Avatar 11:58pm Little Danny:

Would be curious to see some of yer ECM faves, docjazz
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am doctorjazz:

I'll dig some up, have a lot of recent ECM stuff, don't love it all, but it's always interesting.
Avatar 12:01am coelacanth∅:

Excellent program Danny Thanks!
take care, all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02am doctorjazz:

Night all!
  12:03am chresti:
