Beet: Crimea River
DJTweeny: we have no freakin' concept
Deputy MacDang: Sorry for the off-topic question--this is my first time on the Mac--is the show talking about the Ukraine, with a female-sounding speaker?

DJTweeny: Ah OK, I thought you had a Japanese genetic history
Rufus_T_Firetween: ** THE PROCTOR PODCAST - From the mind, and life, of comedy great Phil Proctor >> http://theproctorpodcast.podbean.com/
Cease: There is a Japanese connection. My St. Petersburg grandpa hated the czar and certainly didn;'t want his sons dying for the czar so after louie and adam were drafted in 05, he moved to Vienna, where he met my grandma

Fresnoid: I really hate to admit how this is making me hungry. I gained 50 pounds in six months a few decades ago from Ice Cream Parlor ice cream addiction. :-(
Beet: Let's Eat!
Deputy MacDang: this is awesome! Do you have the source/CD/DVD mentioned above?
Cease: which one, Deputy?

Cease: Yes, Tween.
DJTweeny: kewl, didn't realize that

Cease: Firesign have done a lot of multi-voice stuff, not all of it intentionally
Cease: At Bergman's death, they were doing a series called Talking Over Each Other
Deputy MacDang: I'm sorry--I tuned in late and haven't read everything and am on a computer I'm unfamiliar with.
JAM: I love the way Gould would hum or sing along with what he was playing. It was his way of remembering the music & allowed him to not have to read the music.
Beet: I had also assumed Japanese ancestry, Cease.
Deputy MacDang: Let me ask a different question... Is this/these audio stored on The Internet Archive or something similar (Library of Congress, Library of Alexandria)?
DJTweeny: Anyone think there's too much compression?
Beet: Sounds good to me.
Cease: Yes, I'm a rare white man with a Japanese name. Women weren't allowed to keep their maiden names here in Vancouver when we married in 75, and she wanted to keep her name so I changed my name to hers.
DJTweeny: I put a VST module in to the streamerer to try to even things out
JAM: Well, I think it doesn’t need any more squeeze...
Deputy MacDang: dammit. this computer turns off when I close the lid. Grrrr
DJTweeny: haha Cease, nice :)
Deputy MacDang: I hope I have the microphone off...
DJTweeny: yes it does, Deputy, goes into sleep mode on a Mac
DJTweeny: e may be a Preference to turn that off
DJTweeny: but that's the default
Beet: This is horrible stuff.
DJTweeny: if you close the lid, they assume you want to sleep the laptop
DJTweeny: *there may be
Beet: The Sting Man
JAM: I did meet an elderly Romanian woman who described how as a child at the end of WW2, she & her sister walked over 20 miles, looking for anything edible, & not even seeing a single green leaf
DJTweeny: jeeze :(
DJTweeny: show of hands, who wants to stop the wars?
Deputy MacDang: I have a bio-brother who says raw grasshoppers are not as enjoyable as you might hope, but they're good enough when that's what you need. He/we live in the USA.
Beet: I'll show my feet too
JAM: She told me this story while teaching me reflexology foot massage
DJTweeny: ARP 2500 modular synth, cool machine
Cease: I grew up with tales of this event from my Ukranian relatives. Surprised it's not universally known.
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 10:44 PM, dragging Regular Little Fella by one leg and asks "Can anyone vouch for this web surfer?"
JAM: Me. I’ve had all the war & conflict I can stand for several lifetimes.
Beet: That was great
Deputy MacDang: TMI, but one reason I've been unemployed a lot lately is that I no longer want to work in the so-called Defense industry.
Beet: Hiya Fella
DJTweeny: Feats Don't Fail Me Now!
Deputy MacDang: Feats! Indeed!
Regular Little Fella: Keep it sweet Beet!
DJTweeny: Hi Regular
Deputy MacDang: Shows for the feats! Shoes for Industry!
Regular Little Fella: Shoes for work

Deputy MacDang: @DJTweeny the thing about wars is that everyone thinks they're okay, so long as it's other people involved
Beet: I would love to hear that peaople aren't killing each other anymore.
Deputy MacDang: Don't get me wrong--I didn't quit [just] for conscientious objective reasons. But it was certainly a factor in the eventual decision. I accept the cost.
Fresnoid: Maybe if the word about PTSD goes viral people will stop joining the "defense industry" called "The Armed Forces" and the old adage, "What if they threw a war and nobody came" would come true.
DJTweeny: Deputy MacDang: @DJTweeny the thing about wars is that everyone thinks they're okay, so long as it's other people involved << You bet. As I said, we have no concept of what happened in Russia
DJTweeny: good one, Fresnoid
Cease: Indeed, Fresnoid.

DJTweeny: pretty brutal
Cease: it echoes in Ukraine to this day, Fres
DJTweeny: people who like the USSR system of government deny it, of course
Fresnoid: No doubt!
DJTweeny: much like the Nazi holocaust
Cease: Proc has a particular fondness for Russia, from his time there in late 50s
DJTweeny: but he knew the prosperity they showed him was a facade
Deputy MacDang: Don't we all, nowadays?
DJTweeny: he said this song is a true story

Deputy MacDang: Thank you Cease.
Fresnoid: Nah.
DJTweeny: maybe community radio stations which will play Firesign
