Dexter Fong is strangely attracted to Honey's edginess...the sharp but somehow muted borders of her personality
llangwyddge: welsh lessons? I think that was just a fancing passy
cease: firesign was always The Edge
Hemlock Stones: fair point cease
Bunnyboy: "Oh, they're doing a live COMEDY show. Really?"
Hemlock Stones: sometimes it was just the hole in the middle though
cease: that's why they were never as succesful as Python, Cheech and Chong and others of their peers
cease: they didnt do flicks/tv and they didnt dumb it down.
cease: no way to get rich in america not doing that
Hemlock Stones: puts on snobbish British accent and says, "well since when was commercial success an indication of artistic veritas or quality ?"
llangwyddge: if they had been mainstream I would never have bothered to follow them
Dexter Fong: Firesign was the Edge and Credibility Gap was Bono
HoneyPie: hear hear!!
llangwyddge: even though their merits are still enormous
cease: i only vaguely know who that is, dex, and mostly from his antipoverty campaign
cease: i know there is a musician named The Edge but know nothing of his music or appearance
Dexter Fong: Cat: Same band
Hemlock Stones: i think he fell off recently cease
cease: cred gap was born of the radio and i dont think ever left it much
Dexter Fong: Stones: Bono and Edge were/are U2?
llangwyddge: it was a high school english teacher who got me into the firesign theatre
cease: shearer is mr radio, but got rich doing simpsons and stil does lots of flcis so we know his face
Hemlock Stones: i think the only geezer who predates Firesign is Spike Milligan, at least according to Bergman
Bunnyboy: cat: The Edge is U2's guitarist. Talented bloke, distinctive player.
Dexter Fong: llan: Was it Mrs. Grundy?
cease: i know U2 mostly from the firesign joke abou t their name (Ewe 2)
Hemlock Stones: thats a bit sheepish cease
llangwyddge: no, mr. collins
cease: i have never voluntarily listened to a whole U2 song
Dexter Fong: Pretty soon it'l be just one big sheep
cease: probably working for scale, stones
Hemlock Stones: well i wont force you cease
HoneyPie: sunday bloody sunday was worth listening to by u2
Hemlock Stones: i recommend you visit the website of Shawn the Sheep
Bunnyboy: BEAUTIFUL DAY is a gem.
cease: my ability to enjoy any music has so atrophied
Dexter Fong: Stones: Isn't that Sean of the Dead Sheep
cease: even my old faves barely register
Bunnyboy: And the Negativland mashups of U2 are classic.
Hemlock Stones: http://www.shaunthesheep.com/
cease: some New guaraldi albums came out from his son. i promptlyu bought them but barely tolerated them
Dexter Fong: Cat" Is it a hearing problem?
HoneyPie: you need an injection of some world music, cease
cease: only in an existential sense, dex
llangwyddge: if you hear an album more than 100 times, it might be time to retire it for a while
Hemlock Stones: i listen to hardly any Western music now, the best stuff is coming from the middle and far east
Dexter Fong: llan: Or it's really good
llangwyddge: except for FST
cease: i'll be surounded by japanese music ina few weeks
Bunnyboy: Foggy Mountain Breakdown, Take 600.
llangwyddge: raga is interesting, stones
Dexter Fong: Cat: Thought you were going to Egypt?
Hemlock Stones: its the Battle of the Midiway all over again is it cease ?
cease: i thik my steady atrophying ability to enjoy music comes from my years in japan where the music is just hideous
cease: i want to go to egypt next feb or so. japan in july-august
llangwyddge: that koto is definitely an acquired taste
cease: good one, bun
Hemlock Stones: best part of japan is their websites
Hemlock Stones: i am sure that Fugu just moved, are you sure its dead

Dexter Fong: The best part used to be there itty bitty factories where they made paper matches...but we bombed 'em in WW2
HoneyPie: fermented soybean curd is a real treat, interesting webbing dont miss it, cease
Bunnyboy: llan: You're biting drums now?
Hemlock Stones: so its not all bad news then Fong

Dexter Fong: And Honey was upon the fermament and god said, "What a tomato!!"
cease: better fermented than demented
||||||||| At 11:26 PM, Bunnyboy rushes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
llangwyddge: great stuff, cat. my favorite japanese food, though, is sukiyaki
HoneyPie: fermented AND demented even decanted
Hemlock Stones: i thought Sukiyakin was a pop singer
Dexter Fong wonders if Honey will recant those words under psychological pressure
cease: a beef dish far more popular in the west than in japan. though the beef is much better there
llangwyddge: that reminds me, I forgot to have my weekly glass of wine tonight. think I'll settle for a cough of cuppee

Dexter Fong: Cat taking the Samarui TOUR>>>LIKE OFF THE PEASANTS
HoneyPie: i found enough japanese in los angeles
Hemlock Stones: you can even get good food in the UK at last but only the rich can afford it
cease: i was surprised how lousy the japanese food was in la. and i'm from la. thats why i was so surprised when i got to japan in 71 and found the food astonishing
