Beats mismatched. New mystic moods. The International Style. Pressed and dressed. Queasy listening. New ways to fail. More is more. Backroom room tones.

Thanks to Scott and Carol and everyone for working the night shift!

Good morning, Jesse!! Happy to be here (& hear:)

Hi Polyglotters all, love the Jesse, Marcel, Jesse show run, always intriguing.

This is really great. Thank you!

Hey Aitch! Thanks, settle in—this interview is really fascinating!

hey Jesse and Carol and all
not gonna be up much longer but this is interesting
Avatar 3:09am ToTetsu:

This is really resonating with how i have found my thinking changing since living abroad..
Avatar 3:11am Jesse Dorris:

Morning David! How are things over there today?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11am CarolCrow:

Morning David in London!
Avatar 3:12am Jesse Dorris:

Hey Coela, happy to have you along for as much as you can! And there's always the archives!
Avatar 3:12am Jesse Dorris:

Hi ToTetsu glad it's resonating. Living abroad does tend to rearrange the brain...

hey coelacanth∅:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15am Aitch:

Watching what's happening in the USA from the other side of the world is horrifying, almost incomprehensible.
  3:17am David in London:

Things OK thanks Jesse.
Hey Coelacanth.

Good evening.
Avatar 3:26am Jesse Dorris:

Hey Granny might I suggest some James Baldwin and Nikki Giovanni x Julius Eastman
Avatar 3:26am Jesse Dorris:

Hey Ausmanx, I'll give that a look.
Avatar 3:26am Jesse Dorris:

Good evening, Fox!

good morning everyone. hope you are alright despite it all.
Avatar 3:42am Jesse Dorris:

Good morning, Nelo! And what a morning it is. Hope all is well with you.
Avatar 3:42am Fox:

This is so amazing. Thank you Jesse.
Avatar 3:43am Fox:

This is everything I need to hear right now.
  3:43am chaos_in_LA_LA:

Thanks for this
Avatar 3:44am Jesse Dorris:

Thank you Fox! I wanted an opportunity to shut up and listen to Baldwin and Giovanni for awhile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am Matthew_London:

Morning all
Avatar 3:45am Jesse Dorris:

And you're very welcome Chaos_in_LA_LA thank you for listening
Avatar 3:50am Nelo:

Thank you, I am. I am sitting in Berlin, just starting my day and feeling frustrated about it all. About all the shit going down in the US and all the equivalent shit happening here as well. While at the same time I am glad shit it boiling over, since it has been enough a long time ago. Hopefully things change because there is so much awareness right now.
Avatar 3:51am Jesse Dorris:

Morning Matthew!
Avatar 3:52am Jesse Dorris:

Nelo, there have been marches and protests in Berlin, too, from what I've seen?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54am Aitch:

I hear you ausmanx, that was shit today in Redfern, Nothing incomprehensible about Police violence. Incomprehensible would be the PM on telly asking the bogans to shoot the protesters to protect their right to bear arms.
Avatar 3:57am Nelo:

Jesse, yeah there have been several marches. Which is great! I am glad about it. A lot of the conversation is about what is going down in the US irght now. And it should. My hesitation is only that white folks here are quick with pointing fingers towards the US an overlook all the racism going down here. I am glad about the outrage and solidarity. I just wish there to be awareness for our own shit as well.
Avatar 4:04am Jesse Dorris:

Yup. It's important to remember this is happening everywhere and also crucial to see how it's happening on your block, in your neighborhood, wherever you are.
Avatar 4:09am ben abs:

Morning JD, sounds great, thanks for this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am ausmanx:

this is a really fine show, jesse, a great idea... we should do it more often! although there's not many people as good to listen to as Baldwin (one suspects his authority came partly from the fact that he sounds so patrician, sadly, like MLK and Malcolm and even the great Stokeley, but who cares, it's excellent)
Avatar 4:14am ben abs:

www.versobooks.com - verso books have made 'the end of policing' by Alex S. Vitale a free download on their website for anybody interested
Avatar 4:14am Jesse Dorris:

hey @ben thanks for your ears! And The End of Policing is essential reading
Avatar 4:20am ToTetsu:

That idea of performative labour has really entered popular discussion in recent years
Avatar 4:21am ToTetsu:

the price of the rent is my smile.
Avatar 4:22am Jesse Dorris:

Right @ToTetsu? And the way he says it...@Ausmanx not sure he would agree with 'patrician' and I bet Malcolm wouldn't :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27am ausmanx:

i'm sure they wouldn't agree! but i have my doubts if Baldwin would have been invited to make that extraordinary Oxford Union appearance if he sounded like he was living in Sth Chicago!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30am ausmanx:

to teach always has the potential to be a revolutionary act, esp in the social media era...
Avatar 4:34am Jesse Dorris:

Indeed. As a black gay man in the 20th Century he demonstrated an expertise at code switching, on top of all his other genius
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38am ausmanx:

spot on, and a reason (among others) perhaps why stokeley has been somewhat written out of history, wheras he should be front and centre, but he wasn't so good at that!
Avatar 4:46am Mary from lisbon:

Good morning everyone, great show thanks. hope everyone is alright
Avatar 4:49am Jesse Dorris:

Avatar 4:50am Jesse Dorris:

@Ausmanx yes and also because he went to Africa, which this country ignores at best
Avatar 4:51am Jesse Dorris:

Hey, Mary thanks for coming along with us! How are you?
Avatar 4:53am ToTetsu:

ah a simpler time when people didn't know why they shouldn't eat pork chops.
Avatar 4:53am Nulsh:

Good mornin' folks!
Avatar 4:56am Jesse Dorris:

haha @totetsu I get her point about self-righteousness but also I mean I'm not eating any pork chops
Avatar 4:57am Jesse Dorris:

Good morning @Nulsh! How's all with you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58am ausmanx:

one of the best shows ever on WFMU, i'll download and add to my playlist! thanks, jesse
Avatar 4:59am Nulsh:

Hey Jesse! I am grand thanks. Hope yer' likewise.
Avatar 4:59am Mary from lisbon:

I'm ok, just feeling frustrated about all this that is happening and how when I open the main newspaper here at Portugal and its not highlighted on the front page. Its a global issue
Avatar 4:59am Jesse Dorris:

Whoa that's very kind of you @ausmanx
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02am ausmanx:

i'm a bit biased cos i love JB so much, but the whole thing worked beautifully
Avatar 5:03am Jesse Dorris:

Exactly, Mary. We all think it's not going on where we are but it's going on everywhere.
  5:05am chaos_in_LA_LA:

That was really good Jesse. the mix was well done.
You have a special talent for the long form show
Avatar 5:08am Jesse Dorris:

Well thanks Chaos! It's a pleasure to be able to stretch out and really sink into the mix.
Avatar 5:11am ToTetsu:

Thanks for sharing this Jesse. I would have never of encountered it otherwise. It hopeful to hear such a humanistic discussion form a time before discourse became whatever it is today. As someone not from America, I sometimes get annoyed by how the language about many of these issues is kind of hardened around ideas from american historical experience.. It can be hard to talk to american expats at time who try to police the language of discussion, just kind of ignoring how it doesn't apply to my countries very difference experiences of identity politic issues.. but I found this to be a very universally human discussion, despite how very much it is about the american experience.
Avatar 5:12am ToTetsu:

the music was good to.
Avatar 5:18am Jesse Dorris:

Thanks ToTetsu! I was very glad to have the opportunity to listen to the conversation as well.

Not sure if it’s the playlist or the Dark roast but I am ready to finish this shift now!! Happy Mon/Tuesday Jesse
