large zucchini maybe? @10:03
Avatar 10:08pm northguineahills:

@coel: Fugu! (blowfish)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm coelacanth∅:

that has a nice ring to it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm JtotheK:

going to have to dig out this tjader LP this weekend. some other show spun a track from it this week. (duane, maybe?)
  10:11pm Dean:

Funny you mention large zucchini. I have a couple here--not monumentally huge, but slightly overweight--and I'm uncertain about how to use them. Usually, I just simmer them slowly in olive oil and add blue cheese, but these would make large coins. I might just scrape one of them into meatballs, add it to ground turkey and herbs along with bread crumbs, broil them for several minutes, and simmer them in tomato sauce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm coelacanth∅:

that reminds me of a Ken Nordine piece describing a guy who made okarinas out of dead animals, like fish
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm melinda:

hi again group!
  10:14pm still b/p:

Turn the zooko into noodles and give'em a special treatment.
  10:14pm Dean:

I'm pronoun impaired, sorry.
  10:14pm Dean:

Never made zucchini pasta before, but I've had it. Not a bad idea...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm coelacanth∅:

a friend once asked me if she could grow zucchini in my garden i said yes and it bore many fruit that got huge. she only took a few and i'm not a big fan so i developed a trade situation with a food truck couple that made delicious zucchini bread with it.
Avatar 10:15pm Little Danny:

Love that Tjader early '70s electric Latin jazz period
Avatar 10:16pm Little Danny:

Party got crowded, I say hi to y'all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm coelacanth∅:

ngh you ever eat fugu?
Avatar 10:18pm northguineahills:

Avatar 10:20pm northguineahills:

I saw it once as a kid in Japan, but my parents wouldn't let me try it.
  10:21pm Dean:

Waiter offered me fugu. I told him, "Fugu!"
Avatar 10:22pm northguineahills:

@LD: Y'all is our word! (oh, wait, you're from Texas, carry on).
  10:24pm Dean:

Somebody needs to give some attention to the pledge gauge.
Avatar 10:24pm Little Danny:

I said y'all even when growing up in PA!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm doctorjazz:

Hi folks how goes it?
Avatar 10:25pm Little Danny:

Doc! I just paged you with some Tjader, and then some Hibbert
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm coelacanth∅:

wise people,your parents?
i don't need to try it. i'd bet it's one of those things that people have turned into a "delicacy" because of rarity or in this case also the exclusivity of a club of those willing to risk their lives for the sake of bragging about trying fugu; but it's not anything special, taste-wise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

(like caviar, which everyone knows is just salty and fishy, but it's expensive so therefore delicious!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm melinda:

Caviar has always sounded just gross to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm doctorjazz:

John Sébastian harmonica 45! Very cool! Saw him play with the Jim Kweskin Jug Band not too long ago, fun show
  10:30pm Dean:

There's that, @coel, for sure, but the same situation obtains wrt hot sauces. Yet I've had extremely hot sauces that are really luscious. The intensity contributes to both the psychological and the gustatory effects, but then no human assessment of experience is free of psychological bias.
  10:32pm Dean:

E.g., Bigfat's 808: http://www.bigfatshotsauce.com/8o8-naga-jolokia-hot-sauce-out-of-stock/
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

it's really not great, melinda, and i love fish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Uncle Michael:

The difference between good caviar and commodity "caviar" is...great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm coelacanth∅:

Dean i used to think if it's extremely hot hot sauce it would be less flavorful but i've heard that some accomplish both. i haven't tried any yet that do - but i believe it.
Avatar 10:36pm northguineahills:

@Dean: I don't bhut jolokia hot sauce. I have about 30 bhut jolokia peppers, and I can barely get through 1 per week. (awesome in small amounts).
  10:37pm Dean:

We're seeing bullshit about sloppily prepared burgers here in the Bay Area, as if the nonchalance itself rendered the burger better. Some distinctions (hmm, reminds me to read Bourdieu) are genuine, others all about marketing and hipness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm coelacanth∅:

Uncle M, i'll buy that. (well i probably can't afford it, but...)
so, like with feta then
  10:38pm Dean:

Bigfat's is good, very good. The 808 is smoky (in addition to hot), and therefore less amenable to a wide variety of dishes, but the 708 is only less hot--and it's a mutha--but citrusy, and wonderful on a lot of things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm doctorjazz:

Believe I'm on the stream (free jazz sax)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm melinda:

I have moderate tolerance for hot sauces, and have read conflicting info on whether or not one can increase tolerance. When it's too painful you can't appreciate nuance of flavor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm coelacanth∅:

uhhh stream on! good free saxophone but where are you Danny?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah...kind of. Good caviar is just salty enough and not soterribly fishy...but also nutty and buttery. So like with cheese if one obvious attribute overwhelms the possibility of others...then meh. As with hot sauce, too.
Avatar 10:40pm northguineahills:

@cole: I'm more for the sake (rice wine) of bragging.

What UM said, good caviar is awesome (I put it on crackers or a mild cheese). Crappy caviar is "meh", but I love fish eggs. My favorites are from Russ & Daughters.
  10:42pm Dean:

My favorite dish in town is matrimonios: grilled anchovies on crostini with a dollop of aioli. It's served at a restaurant next door to Chez Panisse. It's fishy as hell, and garlicky as hell. Utter bliss. I want it for breakfast every day.
Avatar 10:42pm northguineahills:

(growing up in Japan will allow you to develop a taste for fish eggs).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm coelacanth∅:

Danny still no you!
Avatar 10:43pm northguineahills:

Sounds awesome, Dean!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm doctorjazz:

I believe that track was from Wildflowers, for those interested, have the LP somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Uncle Michael:

I like marinated white anchovies on crostini with olive-loil pan-roasted and chilled red, yellow and orange bell pepper strips.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Uncle Michael:

with minced parsley and garlic olive oil...I should add
  10:46pm Dean:

Truly, it is. Rarely am I blown away by the cooking in these parts. SF and the Bay Area are absurdly overrated. But matrimonios at Cesar? Just about perfect.
Avatar 10:47pm Little Danny:

Oh fucking hell. I just did a long mic set. Oblivious. Sorry folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Uncle Michael:

'sokay...it happens.

I'm for bed. I'm still listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm coelacanth∅:

i think you're on now..? it sounds like your style, but i couldn't tell by the switchover. (i think it switched back & forth a bit)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm chresti:

enjoying this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm coelacanth∅:

oh there we go. "cry". it's you now.
  10:52pm Dean:

One of my daily refrains is, "Fuck the internet" (by which I mean the web and its attendant "tools" and "apps" and "plugins" and "add-ons" and such). The morons who "invented" this crap deserve our disdain.
Avatar 10:52pm Little Danny:

thanks for sticking around errbody!
  10:52pm Dean:

Another daily refrain is, "I'm tired."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm coelacanth∅:

one of mine is "oh fuck, i have to get out of bed."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm coelacanth∅:

...and another is "shit, i have to go to bed."
  10:55pm Ignore Function:

I'm finally getting to hear the show in real time. Sounds great.
Avatar 10:56pm Little Danny:

Hey Ignore, glad you made it too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm coelacanth∅:

i love these vocals
(sorry Friar, the git's good too!)
Avatar 10:59pm northguineahills:

Ok, off to see my friend's gallery opening after party w/ int'l club sounds. Thanks LD (hopefully going out will help me sleep).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm melinda:

All four of those refrains are mine too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm doctorjazz:

Been vibe deprived since the beginning of the show ahhh, that feels much better !
  11:20pm Dean:

I pitched in this evening, despite telling Evan at Explorers Room that I'd contribute next week. (And I will.) Others?

Vibes, yes. I had a hard time remembering yesterday Walt Dickerson's name, whose record with Sun Ra is one of my desert island must-haves. The other is Tragicomedia's Anna Magdalena Notebook.
Avatar 11:22pm Little Danny:

Ah, Dean, you're the greatest. My behind-the-scenes view isn't accessible at the moment, but I'll get you properly thanked on the air when I can see the numbers
  11:24pm Dean:

No need for "proper" thanks, none at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm JtotheK:

@Dean - I like the Walt Dickerson record 'Impressions of a Patch of Blue' (with Sun Ra).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

wow! never heard any Galt MacDermot that wasn't the actual soundtrack of hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

(or covers of hair soundtrack songs)
Avatar 11:26pm Little Danny:

totally understand D. It's more my embarrassment that I can't access the donation panel right now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm JtotheK:

(Yes, the very one that Danny spun!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

and 3500 always one of my favorites from that! excellent.
  11:27pm steveL:

Dean! This is your shot! Are you going to take it?

I have reasonable dreams of coming to JC and helping out for a week. My dreams might be under performing, but I still like them.
  11:28pm Dean:

Oh, yeah. I was thinking of the later (?) one, Visions, from 1978.
  11:30pm Dean:

1965? Way before Visions!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm doctorjazz:

OK, just ordered the Dickerson LP from Discogs, sheesh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm doctorjazz:

That took it all out of me Z gonna crash now...
  11:38pm Dean:

Visions, doctorjazz? You won't be disappointed. I have four copies: a cassette from a friend in Connecticut, a CD-R from the friend in CT, the reissue CD with extra tracks, and the LP. I first heard it in Quebec, at the apartment of an attendee at Victo one year. I was stricken. He also played for us John Carter's Castles of Ghana, which I also adore.
Avatar 11:38pm Little Danny:

Yeah, Doc, alright!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm doctorjazz:

LD, you still interested in Norwegian jazz Have some Tord Gustafson trio albums I could send you .
Avatar 11:41pm Little Danny:

Yes and yes and yes! Message me and we'll take it from there, Doc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm doctorjazz:

I believe I have the Carter, Visions I'll need to search for
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm chresti:

wow maybe so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm doctorjazz:

On late now but I'll send you a message next few days
  11:52pm Dean:

Oops. Cutting out...
  11:52pm Dean:

Ergo, fuck the internet.
Avatar 11:52pm Little Danny:

Caught it faster. Terrible timing, cut off the intro of this righteous R&B
