Obnoxious Actions, Obnoxious Results: Transmission 347, 2017 June 7

kylie-minogue-press-2014-650-430.jpg You can glimpse into the past, not merely through the magic of recording, but by virtue of the content in this program. Lady Catharsis and I each produce a chestnut from our respective adolescences, separate but joined together by birthday magic. LC tells me that she saw Tom Jones perform once upon a time (in Tahoe, if I recall correctly), and that, apart from a joke in poor taste, he WAS love. Regrettably, I never saw Prince perform (except on TV during the best Super Bowl halftime in history), but his music was a strong point of identification during my sensitive years. (Have they ended?) Eschewing him for Morrissey seems, looking back, unnecessary, not to mention a mistake. Oh well. I will add it to the list.

Again, a small mistake seems to derail the whole thing, about halfway through. But Brian Harris salvages the program (and perhaps the future of British Democracy?) with his timely piece, which I played as a sort of wish, to be fulfilled by The Absolute Boy the following day.

By Pressing Down the Special Key It Plays a Little Melody: Transmission 346, 2017 May 31

• July 6th, 2017
00:0000:00

brian-jonestown-massacre-album-dont-get-lost.png It seems like the sensible way to follow a Coil night would be to do a Medway night. Sometimes (regrettably?) I exhibit some sense. So here it is--god knows how many of these we've done. I crack myself up referring to Still Talking 'Bout...Milkshakes! as a "reunion record," but it is (was) the truth. Frequently I forget that it is no longer 1992 or shortly thereafter; that, or the realization of it, must produce the comedy. I can't figure it out.

Listening to this episode, I tried something other than the gym, which, I am gradually figuring out (after a dozen or so years), is a place of intense self-loathing. I reviewed this mostly walking around town. It was quite glorious! Ithaca in summer reminds me of my beloved D-town (as it could only do at this time of year), sunny, quiet, parched, deadly. I like what I like! Regarding the content itself, there weren't too many mistakes here, just a misplaced fader and some slightly abrupt or ill-timed cues. Nothing drastic. A couple of timely references, which seem inevitable these days--"Kid Covfefe" and the timeliness of The Orb. Not quite one for the vaults, but a good use of two hours.

No One Saw Him Coming, Plenty Witnessed His Remains: Transmission 345, 2017 May 24

coil_astral_disaster_black.jpg Recently I promised only really good or really bad programs, and this is a really bad one. What makes me say that? One mistake, early on, which I blame on the computer but is really attributable to my being stupid. I have listened back to this moment three times or so and it makes me cringe. Supposedly you will have an easier time with it, provided you do not easily get embarrassed for other people. But this is the way I think--an otherwise decent show can run aground on one error.

As to what is "otherwise decent" about this broadcast--well, it is a Coil night, to begin with. In another of those "this will probably work better for you than for me" instances, these tunes are pretty chill, especially the first two lengthy ones. Recently I made the mistake of trying to listen to these on the cross-trainer, during a period of acute self-loathing. It was not very "chill!" But I know these have had what I think is their intended effect on me in the past. There is also the somewhat legendary Ramleh, who underscored the self-loathing quite nicely.

From Pre-Eternity to Post-Eternity: Transmission 344, 2017 May 21

• July 2nd, 2017
00:0000:00

superpitcher_golden_ravedays_2.jpg True story: I told myself at around this time that I couldn't do "fill-in" appearances because (a) I was behind on posting the regularly-scheduled broadcasts that I do and (b) I was entering a really busy work period (where we are now). Like most things I promise myself, I bailed on this one. Aron called in sick, on this day, and so I found myself in the Kenny Ritter Memorial Studio a mere 24 hours after my previous fill-in appearance. I used to call stunts like this "hero time." I don't know what to call them now.

HOWEVER, whether in spite of an absence of planning or because of it, this is an excellent program. I am leaning toward the latter. Though mostly current and non-nostalgic except for the Kevin Shields birthday observance, this "mixtape" feels like the spirit of what I used to do in the olden days--long, trippy tunes with excellent segues, not the bite-size "trail mix" and rapid-fire changes I am "into" now. I am frequently reminded that young me had it together in more ways than current me does.

Semi-Emergency Saturday: Transmission 343, 2017 May 20

the_stalker.png Here is what I thought at the time would be a "rare" substitute appearance on the radio. "As Always I Was Wrong Again." Regardless, we are in good form on this night, even though it is early, and even though we sound like "The Magic Womb" only in places. We Are What We Are. It does feel nice to listen back to a program with few, if any, errors.

I have been looking at "memories" recently on a social-media platform that shall go unnamed. Seeing my program posts from 2016, at around this time, I note that I was panicked and error-prone then, too. (Differently, I have to say, from the 2017 version of My Self.) Well--I have to say that as of this writing I am actually feeling pretty good, some clouds have recently lifted, and I am breathing for the first time in about 8 months. So this means either some high-proficiency programs or some absolute trainwrecks to come. Nothing middling on the horizon.

Too Much May Kill You; A Little Will Keep You Alive: Transmission 342, 2017 May 17

00:0000:00

FullSizeRender_2_.jpg I present to you the first of several "consecutive" "regular" programs in which I managed to get it together at least to the point of including "Physical Evidence." At one point in the program, I provide a "how the sausage is made" moment by explaining that sometimes things slip in or out of Spotification and that the People Like Us canon had, at some point when I wasn't looking, slipped out. The world's loss is my negligible gain. So here you go. It was a good night!

Though I feel compelled to say--"If Someone Touches You" may be triggering. It certainly turned out to be, for me, though not in the most obvious way. It just seems like the sort of thing that Young Me would have played in the olden days, to troll some Imagined Listener. That track has got me thinking (as usual) about what The Point of all this might be. I still don't know.

Easy To Kill By Just Sitting Still: Transmission 341, 2017 May 10

mary_ocher_west_against.jpg Regretfully, this is another "featureless" program. My ability to incorporate "Physical Evidence" and "The Listening Parlour" is declining as I age. We're left with "just" a collection of great tunes here. I apologize. Full refunds are available; just write to my mailing address.

It may be a small consolation, but at one point in this broadcast I do bust out a comically bad Yoda impersonation. No hints as to where it is--you'll have to listen to find it. Another highlight is the Petar Dundov track: let me tell you, as a compulsive cardio enthusiast, this jams on the arc trainer. And I know nothing about Blushing--more South American shoegaze, maybe?--but their track makes me cry. I do that during my workout too.

four_lips_from_one_mouth.jpg Reading today about the "culture of narcissism," I feel compelled to say "it me," as the kids do. Differentiating between myself and the external world is a challenge. Object permanence, which I thought I had mastered once, is a memory (though I guess the fact that I remember it should reassure me). Things exist insofar as they produce feelings in me. Remembering readings from graduate school, I might fancy myself "His Majesty the Baby," but most likely "l'hommelette" is more apt as a description.

Case in point: I've listened to this program twice, and have no idea whether it is great or terrible. Not that I am certain it is something in between: I heard it once and it was terrible, and I heard it another time and it was great. It may be an infinite number of other things--for me it all had to do with how I was feeling at the time I heard it. Give this a try yourself. Perhaps you should do it more than once.

Hissing Under the Floorboards: Transmission 339, 2017 April 26

• June 13th, 2017
00:0000:00

Afriqua_Prophette2.jpg Back to regularly-scheduled content come we. Here is a "full-featured program" with both Physical Evidence and a Listening Parlour entry, because it is what I like to imagine you are here for. (I like to imagine many things.) ((I routinely find it difficult to avoid saying "full-figured program," which, in a way, all of my programs are.)) True to form, it...perhaps could have gone better than it did.

Eventually I settle into a groove, but it takes a while to get there. I am quite fond of Prophette, tonight's special record (and of Afriqua generally), but on listening (and re-listening) it's awfully...dynamic (or maybe just quiet?). Audio purist that I am (or that I fancy myself), I never thought I'd find myself arguing for more compression, but "life comes at you fast," as the kids say. Try this program out for yourself--and then buy the Afriqua record so you can listen to it outside of anyone else's context.

Elsewhere I upset Lady Catharsis with some of my commentary--this takes me back to the "halcyon" days of the late 1980s, when I used to do this with other friends, some of whom seem not to have stuck around. Thank goodness LC has build up a tolerance. I really need to stop doing the things I used to do when I was 18 or 19. They were dumb then and dumber now.

I’m Careful and I’m Always True: Transmission 338, 2017 April 23

• June 11th, 2017
00:0000:00

sevendeaths_-_remote_sympathy.jpg Here is a fill-in program that I did not too long ago, geologically speaking. (Never mind that in our current time, it seems like every week is an epoch.) As I alluded to a few posts ago, April 23 came and went, featuring airtime by me, and I didn't do anything to honor or even observe David Gedge, whose records have given me much joy. I should at least have done a "Physical Evidence" thing--anything more than that would probably require a visit to Ithaca by Friend of Bombast Jeremy, and that's not on the agenda. Nevertheless, as we found out in the previous episode, sometimes it's good not to have "compulsory" items on the playlist.

Filling in here for "Fellow Traveler," I find myself once again being super-apologetic about it. I do imagine that some people tuned in hoping for something else and have no evidence that they enjoyed what they found instead. Trying here to keep myself grounded. On the other hand, they should have enjoyed this program, but it is quite good! Early on it's a bit soupy, but it rewards patience with electric unpredictability, if I do say so.
