Everybody Tests the Membrane, But No One Pushes Through: Transmission 362, 2017 August 16

• September 2nd, 2017
00:0000:00

Typhoon_-_Bite_the_Drum_2.jpg This transmission marks our return to the (all too) regular Wednesday night time, after a terrible but mercifully brief hiatus. Lady Catharsis and Junior were still out of town--both had to "phone in" their voiceovers--and I was still helping myself to multiple courses of dessert every night. August is usually a rough month for me, for numerous reasons, but this one set a new standard. I felt bad about this program on the night, but as usual it is actually quite decent and good in places.

Since this was Charlottesville / sheetcake week and we were all learning (or relearning) how to deal and not deal with Nazis, it seems fitting that I'm featuring a record firmly rooted in the Reagan era. Because of Bitburg and other things we used to tell ourselves that the Nazis were among us then--who knows, they might have been--such an innocent time! If nostalgia is all I have to offer, we might as well make it interesting.

I Don’t Want To Hear About Your Doom: Transmission 361, 2017 August 12

• September 1st, 2017
00:0000:00

fire-dept-group-l-oeuf-d-or_20170812.jpg As I warned in the prior episode, I was flying solo for this one. I daresay I was already desperately lonely, though I had dropped off Lady Catharsis and Junior at the airport a mere 12 hours earlier. What can I tell you? I am not a strong person, I guess. Fortunately, even the weak can make decent radio.

Re. "the opinion portion of the program": I feel compelled to say it does seem weird, first of all, for anyone to release a five-cd set in 2017. Probably even weirder to think that the world was thirsty for a rambling goth retrospective. Though I am known to wear black and listen to Bauhaus I have never had a membership card, so (not even perhaps) I am not in the best position to comment on this. Would love to hear some testimony on how, say, The Bolshoi exemplify this genre. Or is it a case wherein if I have to ask I will never know?

Here Comes the Bishop’s Daughter: Transmission 360, 2017 August 5

• August 26th, 2017
00:0000:00

fontan.jpg Surprise! You probably thought you were rid of me for two weeks, but fate and jetBlue Airlines have made you their bitch. Because here I am, along with Junior, in Ithaca when we should be in California, and delivering an unfavorable substitute to a very in-favor program.

Notes: at one point in the show I use the phrase "hotel airport," of which I am sure there is one somewhere, but Syracuse is not such a place. We got an almost-free meal out of it, and that is the absolute best that can be said. We also discussed libertarian eclipse preparation, about which I seem to have been wrong, at least locally: eclipse glasses were given out freely at the local observatory, while in stock (nevertheless I missed out). I'll be damned, though, if there isn't some backwater town somewhere in the "path of totality" where you had to pay for them. I'd bet money on it, if I had money. ALSO I haven't bothered to fact-check that eclipse in '93 or '94 that I referred to, so I'm not sure whether El Paso was "in the path" or not. Waiting to sit with that embarrassment, when it comes, as it surely will. Finally, I will never understand the fascination with female voices on the radio--some listener wrote in asking Junior's age, while mine, to my knowledge, has never been a matter for speculation among our listeners. At any rate, Junior delivers the perfect answer; you will just have to listen for it.

SHEDDING STEWARDSHIP of the Bombastic web archive, it is I, Guy LeBatard, with what is my last ever transmission, for now. Whether I knew it at the time doesn't matter, but it sounds like I did. Boring as it already was to push these sausages through the tube on schedule, apparently the following Sunday was "another dreadful day of sunlight and warmth," so I ghosted. I wonder if Captain Halcyon did a program, but it's not my responsibility. This transmission is "good" where it needs to be and "bad" where it is meant to be. Since there are no endings in nature, and we lack the bravery to face those we construct, let's say that someday I may return spontaneously. kid catharsis has a phrase about this that he is saving for his own time, so as a grudging bourgeois gesture in recognition of his hospitality, I will not steal it.

Fuck sunsets.

STILL IN CONTROL of the Bombastic web archive, it is I, Guy LeBatard, whether you like it or not. If not, make your own adventures. This broadcast did happen on a "dark afternoon"--sadly my appointed time of day was becoming brighter and brighter, and my brief season of transmitting was nearing its end. But this is a good program, suitable for whatever! Vertical, orizzontal, diagonal, your activities may vary. A technical note: I didn't know and couldn't decide how to pronounce Ryan Crosson's name, but on reflection I do prefer "croissant." Ryan--I do not love you because you are tasty; you are tasty because I love you. Think on this.

YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE at a post by Guy LeBatard, accompanying another sonic adventure in mindless hedonism. "This unfolds" now, wherever you happen to be, but its "original" airing, if it was not always already happening somewhere in block time, was on the day of The Big Football Game. Not that the association means anything, but "real" time listeners got a taste of the violence of spectacle prior to the spectacle of violence, if in fact there is a relevant difference.

Bring on the rotary cocktails and permanent vacations!

From the end of the world--do we dare to dream?--it is Guy LeBatard, bringing you another hour of my "less easily decipherable than I thought" program. Since all culture is simultaneous now I won't bother with telling you what "was" happening when I spun these tunes, but I can assure you that this abdication is NOT because I don't "remember." What is happening NOW is what matters, if anything does. <RON HOWARD NARRATOR VOICE: "It doesn't."

Bonjour! Guy LeBatard, checking in with another program from the "distant" past. The pipeline is drying up. We are nearing the end. But here is an hour's worth of good "entertainment," or whatever. Were I the type to write long treatises--I never "showed much promise," or so they told me--I would figure out whether I find it more distasteful that music is made to be used as a backdrop for some other activity or that some musicians insist that you give their product your full attention.

It is a good thing that I am not that type!

Anyway, kid catharsis tells me that this was a very satisfying listen while he was punishing himself on the arc-trainer, so I suppose we are to trust him?

Guy LeBatard here, wishing you the best of luck in 2017. I was spending the holidays "down south," with the Catharsis family. Some of "kid's" clumsiness must have rubbed off on me. This is a clumsy hour and a dreaded symmetrical selection. Plus, I played the same Carl Craig tune for the second program in a row. "Honor thy error as a hidden intention?" Get stuffed, Brian Eno, and go back to making music for shopping malls or whatever it is you do.

Happy holidays, from Guy LeBatard! No doubt, the more pedantic among you will point out that it is currently August, but time means nothing to me. Please find attached a program that I did...sometime. It strikes me, in retrospect, as rather pleasing. Though I sound a bit down "on tape," I was delivering appropriate mindlessness for the listening area, and beyond.

I am discovering that a trait I share with kid catharsis, who "hosts" this archive, is a desire for shallowness of affect above all things. Is it standing in for authenticity, humility, lack of commercial appeal? This could certainly be. Words, effort, "balls-out" commitment--I don't know what to do with these, in all honesty. I prefer states of being, undisturbed. A death wish? That's for someone else to figure out, in their free time.
