Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from December 25, 2020 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

Hi Bronwyn! It's a cold winter night, I'm snuggling up to my cash register.

Hi doctorjazz!!
  7:25pm CC:

High Doc!!!...I'm getting there!!...:)
  7:27pm CC:

Nothing worse than a cold winter night with frozen fruit cakes!!!...:)
  7:37pm CC:

I forget what's the difference between an elf and a troll..?...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Troll is a comedy horror film from 1986, Elf is a holiday film from 2003 :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Webhamster Henry:

Christmas tunes written by Jews, part 764
  7:49pm CC:

Do fairies fit in there anywhere???...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: At least 11 of the 17 songs I've played so far are by Jews lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@CC: Fairies definitely fit in on Acid Jazz Hands!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:59pm doctorjazz:

Having my traditional Japanese food dinner!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Jelly!! I am visiting my parents and the power went out so we had to get takeout from waffle house bc it was the only thing open
Avatar 🎭 8:02pm Listener Gregory:

Sorry, I was busy ruining Xmas dinner and forgot the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

oh no what did you ruin??
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm WR:

Oh, too bad Bronwyn, my partner was worried about us loosing power in last night's storm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Julie:

they sound like they're all trying to be Julie Andrews
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

are you in PA too?? it was pretty bad
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Julie: Lol Glenn Close's Julie Andrews impression!!
Avatar 🎭 8:04pm Listener Gregory:

My oven has the special feature that when you turn off the timer, the oven also goes off, so my chicken was not really getting roasted... or was it? No idea now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i hope it ends up being a nice chicken for u!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:05pm WR:

NYC. Moderate rain and strong wind from 11PM to 6AM.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm WR:

Goldanged infernal machines LG.
  8:07pm CC:

When we are cooking we use timers to keep track of where we're at...of course when they go off you wonder what it was you set them for???...hehehe...:)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm WR:

Use cooking thermometer if you have it LG. Safest way to know it is adequately cooked.
Avatar 🎭 8:09pm Listener Gregory:

@WR, yes. The design of this Whirlpool stove is idiotic in most ways.
Avatar 🎭 8:12pm Listener Gregory:

I consulted the Joy of Cooking (edition ca. 1955), which told me to cook it to 190°. Fortunately I mentioned this in a text, and my brother told me I was an idiot.
  8:17pm CC:

Some people don't worry about stuff if it's a little raw???...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Webhamster Henry:

maybe it was 190°C.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:22pm doctorjazz:

I've read white meat is fine at 150, dark meat at 175 degrees.
Avatar 🎭 8:31pm Listener Gregory:

You measure it at 165 or so and then let it rest for 20 min, and it continues to cook. Having eaten some, I’d say it’s ok but not great. However, not disastrous, which was my worry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

yay glad it turned out ok!!
  8:34pm CC:

I don't know how they expect people to develop their own antibodies against stuff if we all have to be so careful???...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Webhamster Henry:

No other animals bothers to cook their food.
Avatar 🎭 8:36pm Listener Gregory:

This sounds like a rejected song from Jesus Christ Superstar. What a wail!
  8:38pm CC:

BB... I think you need to blow your nose and talk a little slower???...:)
Avatar 🎭 8:39pm Listener Gregory:

Making me wish for Elvin Jones, @doctorj.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm doctorjazz:

Odd version of My favorite Things, now I see why...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm doctorjazz:

The bass player doesn't sound like a jazz player
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm doctorjazz:

Like it, though
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm WR:

Ok, all leftovers wrapped and in fridge. All prep dishes put away. Dirty dishes in the sink. Going to sit and sip tea and listen to the rest of this show in repose. Then wash the dishes.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:42pm doctorjazz:

The Drummer either, LG, but lots of energy.
  8:43pm CC:

No sense in procrastinating!!!...:)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm doctorjazz:

And there's still Dark Night, Miles to go...
  8:44pm CC:

After all we are in the middle of a pandemic!!!...:)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm WR:

The drums and bass on the Outcast cut were beatbox synthes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Webhamster Henry:

Avatar 🎭 8:46pm Listener Gregory:

Had a piece of breast meat that was very good. Thanks to all for your support in this difficult time for me.
BB, why does this “I don’t remember Christmas” song seem familiar? Never heard of the show.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm WR:

WHH, the link didn't work for me.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:49pm WR:

LOL, LG. Best we can do is wish you the best and random bits of possibly wrong info offered with best of intentions.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:49pm doctorjazz:

Beat box makes sense, WR, should have thought of they (wasn't a human rhythm, to constant and unrelenting)
  8:49pm CC:

I'm pretty sure that links are not allowed on this show?!?...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Webhamster Henry:

Sorry typo in there! jhhl.net...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:51pm WR:
