  6:11am Daybreak & the Hybrid Life:

So the good and the bad of my adventures in going back in the high school yesterday:
only half of the students were supposed to be there, which is how the hybrid life goes.
It turns out only 1/3 to 1/2 of that half actually showed up. Everybody else was virtual.
Many of the staff were also not in and had substitutes.
I wrote a nice, respectful email to my building principal asking, since all of this is true, what is it about this particular week that is so high risk, that makes it necessary for have us to be in building?
The response:
“Let’s chat about your concerns tomorrow.”
So I invited him to come up to my bathroom duty so we can chat about it...
In the physical building once again today.

bloomfield, maplewood, montclair... I'm up early for a trip to essex county myself-- i'm about to head to verona to finish hiking the lenape trail (too cold to wear an fmu t-shirt, though)

if i'm lucky, I'll be able to spot the transmitter in east orange :)
  6:18am The Butterman:

Daybreak, I’m sure that chat will result in the school getting shutdown! Uggg, what a pointless waste of time. All risk with no reward and quality of instruction goes down the turlit ( properly guarded by your top position as a bathroom monitor)

Always one of my favs, this here Soft Boys tune.

Avatar 6:26am HyperDose:

@Todd I lived in Long Hill until '09. Scotti's in Gillette had a 25yr run until 2011. I guess Summit is the only location left. Owner was so nice, even special ordered sticks and strings for me. And yes Peapod is Stop & Shop.

Morning Mr. Ophonic, morning all! This sounds utterly gorgeous. Thanks for the tunes.

I remember Scotty's in summit, and there used to be one in Morristown. that's the one that's closed. so maybe that's the one you were thinking of if you've ever been there, that is.

Avatar 6:28am Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Will: Correct! It was brought to the band by Guy Stevens.

Seeing that transmitter was almost a religious experience. I believe I saw it from my moms window while she lay dying at Kessler. I painted Godzilla destroying the transmitter with his icy, blue breath in my painting for Wake n Bake art auction!

jn34282, The Child chose to attend Morris Knolls Regional 100% remote, thank goodness. I'm an old CHS alum frkm when the bldg in Main St was the high school. Don't understand why more schos aren't 100% remote.
Avatar 6:33am Motobro:

Steven, won’t see it from Eagle Rock as its on the same ridge south of you. From the west mtn trails in Verona (old Essex Cty insane asylum area) you could see it.
Either way nice day for a hike and you’ll have exceptional view of the cities. Enjoy!
  6:34am Daybreak & the Hybrid Life:

Thanks Butterman! Thanks Peter from Dover!
In the Covid times I makes sure only one person at a time goes in each bathroom which usually hold 5.
The rest wait in a 6 foot spread out line.
I like a public place for my “chats”, even when the building principle is a decent sort.

Avatar 6:49am Motobro:

@Steveo, the id says East Orange because FMU was originally chartered by and located at Upsala College, whence it existed it was located in East Orange. However I believe the transmitter and antenna were always located up on the first mountain in West Orange or Waste Orange as we would call it growing up there and getting wasted... only once -n- awhile of course.
That is a pretty darn good map you’re working with. Good luck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50am Peter from Dover NJ:

jn34282, when I was there, the soccer team was great and the school managed to get a foreign exchange student each year that just happened to be an ace soccer player. And the football team was, uh, not great.

I do not see the benefit or continuity of jumping from face to face, virtual, hybrid learning from week to week or day to day. Academic hopscotch sounds nauseating. At least the county college where I labor declared most classes remote this semester and I expect, in the summer. Fall remains unknown.

Avatar 7:14am Deborah:

The WFMU transmitter, way back in the days of the Old Yellow and early subsequent moves, was sacred. We would drive by and stare and a couple times we visited. Repressive managers threats "to turn the transmitter off" never manifested but it loomed. We were right next to the ghastly, overpowering WFME, that scary right wing religious station at 94.7.

@Daybreak: you said just down the street from Knolls, is that just before the intersection of 46 and Franklin. or somewhere between 46 and Maine. I used to hoof it many of time up and down Franklin going to and from Knolls, just because I missed the bus a lot, and because I used to cut class is a lot.

It bled into WFMU, of course, and other frequencies. I used to marvel how such a powerful frequency could be devoted to the cult dribble that poured out of there. Not much of an FM listener these days unless it is WFMU or WQXR (sorry) or WBGO, at times, when they are not too self righteous.

The Beatles are a pivotal point in the history of rock and pop. they formed the sound that carries straight to a lot what we all hear to this day. I don't see how anyone can like rock and roll and popular music and not be enamored by its history.

I listen at times to Paul Cavalconte do the American Songbook on WNYC and it shocks me when I hear Procol Harum played.
