Lizbot's catbird 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 (Rob from MD) 5:16:52 PM
Lizbot, how cool about the Natl. Aviary. As for Michigan, I've never been so I don't know what to say. Though the UP could have Sandhill Cranes and Ruffed Grouse and breeding Common Loons

Lizbot's catbird 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 (Rob from MD) 5:18:23 PM
Should I dm you that link and another one I just found?
Lizbot (host) 5:20:33 PM
@Rob - I've been a Maine many times and seen loons in Lake Pemadumcook (sp?) just below Baxter State Park. I haven't been back there in a long while, but used to camp there every summer as a teen. Overdue for a Maine trip, which was actually going to my road trip this summer, but then the kid wanted to go to this camp in Michigan, so we changed plans
Lizbot (host) 5:21:46 PM
@Rob - ooh, thx for the birding resource site! I HAVE been to Wisconsin once, about 18 years ago, and I imagine it's a lot of the same birds, but I didn't leave Madison or Spring Green much, and threw out my back while there, so didn't go on much sightseeing and don't remember what birds I saw there!

Lizbot (host) 5:25:54 PM
@Rob - Bad timing! Had to go to a doc in Wisconsin to check it out. My friend I was visiting here had to recline her passenger's seat all the way back to drive me there so I could lie down! I haven't had back pain like that before or since (knock on wood.) Had a live DJ gig at Silk City when I got back to Philly and was on muscle relaxers, so I THOUGHT I was okay to go the gig, but BOY did I pay for that later! Hauling records crates and kneeling to grab records from 10pm-2am

@Readie - Yeah! I am excited to explore a different part of the country! Will be visiting a friend in Pittsburgh (where I've been many times) on my way, and then checking out Ann Arbor, Detroit, and the Upper Peninsula! Staying a couple nights in Mackinac Island where no cars are allowed, only bikes, pedestrians and horses
Lizbot (host) 5:29:22 PM
@Brian's burbling 'bout Belew by the by

Hi friends!
🐌 5:35:43 PM
gotta make sure you check out jerry's and the attic in pittsburgh for records also
Lizbot (host) 5:36:53 PM
@Readie - Since a good friend has been living in Pittsburgh for many years (10 years, then she moved away and just moved back,) I've been to the Warhol Museum a handful of times and might fit that in, but I'm partial to the Mattress Factory and the Poetry House, both on Sampsonia Way in the neighborhood of Mexican War Streets, where we'll be staying, so we're def get to those and the National Aviary!
Lizbot (host) 5:37:05 PM
Hellooo Addie!
Lizbot (host) 5:37:55 PM
Hi Snail! - Will do!! Thanks for the recommendation! It's been a while since I've been to Pittsburgh. Used to go once a year until my friend there moved to Cali for a decade, but now she's back so I can 'burgh away!
Readie 5:38:15 PM
Wow! I’m late to the party, is the Aviary in Pittsburgh?
Readie 5:39:52 PM
Hi Addie!
Lizbot (host) 5:40:06 PM
@Readie - Yes! Fun place! You can go in a room of free-flying lorikeets and they are super used to people so they just swoop around you

Lizbot (host) 5:41:05 PM
@Readie - The last time I was at the Nat'l Aviary, I went to a birds of prey show on the roof and fell in love with a surprisingly sweet buzzard!
Readie 5:41:28 PM
My nephew is there, now I have some ideas where to go when I visit him
Readie 5:42:05 PM
Surprisingly Sweet Buzzard- good name for a band
Lizbot (host) 5:42:12 PM
@Addie - I hope maybe next summer! I had such a good time there last year! Definitely wanna thrift there again, get breakfast sandwiches at August First in Burlington, and Cookie Love near Charlotte!
Lizbot (host) 5:43:20 PM
@Readie - The omnivores among us have more in common with the buzzard than we do with many other types of birds - they also only eat their meat after it's dead! This buzzard was so sweet!
Readie 5:44:02 PM
Awwwww! @Liz
Lizbot (host) 5:45:42 PM
@Readie - Oh nice! Yeah, check out Sampsonia Way. Such a pretty street to walk along. Mattress Factory, The Poetry House and a cool Isaiah Zagar-style decorative mosaic/junk art house all on the same stretch of that street! Plus the bridges and rivers are gorgeous (if slightly confusing for navigation! -usually at least one bridge is closed when I'm there and my GPS does not understand that!)
Readie 5:45:43 PM
That reminds me, I have a filet thawing in the fridge! Hmmm

Lizbot (host) 5:57:36 PM
Hi Randy! haha! I'm only driving through Ohio. Thought of trying to see Cleveland after I leave Detroit on my way home, but there won't be time and I had to sacrifice one stop and Cleveland seemed the obvious choice. Besides, it's not a good halfway point to rest between Detroit and Philly, whereas Pittsburgh is
Randy Marthins 5:58:42 PM

Lizbot (host) 5:58:43 PM

I AM allowed Buckeyes, thank goodness
Readie 6:01:37 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:01:51 PM
@Randy - So glad I bought the DVD of Fishing with John back in the days when DVDs came with so many extras and commentary! John Lurie's commentary on that is golden. And I got to hear all about his falling out with Tom Waits, whose vacation he "ruined" with his fishing show antics!
Lizbot (host) 6:02:05 PM

Love both the Painting and Fishing shows! All this talk makes me want to go watch Stranger than Paradise now. 😁
Lizbot (host) 6:14:10 PM
@Dennis / Randy - I MIGHT play a song from the Fishing with John soundtrack on the show today! And by might, I mean almost definitely. Hint: It's from the Montauk episode with Jim Jarmusch

Saw Miles, too
Lizbot (host) 6:15:28 PM
@Steve - I have been wanting to revisit Stranger Than Paradise and also Down By Law recently. Been in the mood for early Jarmusch and my husband is doing a discography group thing where he's listening to Tom Waits' entire discography in chronological order with a group of friends and comparing notes, so Waits is on my mind!
Lizbot (host) 6:16:55 PM
@Randy - Nice show! Dang. I think my husband might've seen Pat at Academy of Music...what year was this?
Lizbot (host) 6:17:19 PM
@Ossy - Some video gamey music for you!
Lizbot (host) 6:17:50 PM
@Dennis - I loved the MVM episode for Down By Law. Made me wanna see it again! I have the DVD somewhere
Lizbot (host) 6:18:47 PM
@Dennis - I think it might be time to introduce Hattie to Jarmusch, but I'll start her off with Mystery Train since she loves Screamin' Jay Hawkins....Might be too soon though, and I don't wanna blow it!
Steve Volaric 6:18:55 PM
Listening to Tom Waits discography in order is a brilliant idea! Those early Jarmusch films are so great.
Readie 6:19:02 PM
On Sonic Bloom today, Esoterica played TW’s Jersey Girl, which I had thought was penned by Springsteen/ but it’s Waits!
Dennis Linggg 6:19:15 PM
Thanks! I remembered liking the movie but it was way better than I remembered. Jim Jarmusch tends to do that for me. I haven’t seen either tv show though so I have to catch up there.
Randy Marthins 6:19:57 PM
Yeah Springsteen's a cover!
Dennis Linggg 6:20:26 PM
@Liz maybe Night on Earth? Also a fun bunch of vignettes.

Monica Kane 6:25:49 PM
I am ALWAYS awed by your playlists
Dennis Linggg 6:25:50 PM
@Readie cool! I’ll have to check that out!
Lizbot (host) 6:26:13 PM
@Monica - It is. It's in Cleveland, but I'm gonna be on a tight schedule and won't get a chance to stop in Cleveland. I considered it. If I had an extra day...
Randy Marthins 6:26:27 PM
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is Hall of Shame until Warren Zevon gets in
Randy Marthins 6:26:40 PM
Yeah - I said that
Monica Kane 6:27:02 PM
Lizbot - yes, very much understand.
DSM 6:27:17 PM
Have a great road trip! Sounds fun. Yeah, the water was still very cold if you do get there, but I did run in and out. Gotta get that dreamy 'beach hair' right?! haha
Lizbot (host) 6:27:51 PM
@Dennis - Just as Stranger Things has apparently gotten all the kids on a Kate Bush kick! NOW I understand why, when I was in NYC the week before ST S4 premiered and the cast was having a debut party in Brooklyn, Winona was wearing a Kate Bush pin!!! I almost posted it that day!
TAndy 6:28:24 PM
Lizbot & all Hey!!! Good evening, and have a fun road trip! Cross country driving is something id love to do in a more comfy car myself :)
Randy Marthins 6:29:21 PM
I learned of the Karl Hendricks Trio from Jon Solomon, who have the one of greatest lyrics I ever heard "I left the only woman I ever loved in a strip club in Cleveland"
Lizbot (host) 6:29:26 PM
Hello TAndy!
Randy Marthins 6:29:36 PM
Or maybe it's "met?"
Ossy Hyouka 6:29:38 PM
Hey Tandy!
Monica Kane 6:30:03 PM
Randy - that
Monica Kane 6:30:14 PM
That's a great line!
Lizbot (host) 6:30:34 PM
@DSM - Thanks! haha, yeah! I pride myself on being un-wussy about swimming in cold water, but June in the mid-atlantic is a bit of a stretch! I will probably swim at least once! I like that it's not very crowded on the beach in June!
Monica Kane 6:31:13 PM
Monkees!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 6:31:21 PM
Yesss, love me some Monkees!
ROFFLESTOMP 6:31:50 PM
Carole King!
Lizbot (host) 6:31:51 PM
@Monica & @Addie - Just watched Head recently! Love that intro in the water!
Lizbot (host) 6:31:58 PM
@Roffle - yes!
Monica Kane 6:32:20 PM
Dating myself that I watched them when it was on TV a million years ago
Lizbot (host) 6:32:30 PM
@TAndy - The gas prices are gonna hurt, but it's better than flying these days!
DSM 6:32:35 PM
Roffle, did Monkees use the Wrecking Crew too?
Lizbot (host) 6:32:54 PM
@Monica - aw, thanks for your playlist comment....just catching up!
ROFFLESTOMP 6:33:04 PM
Have not watched 'Head' in a generation!
DSM 6:33:07 PM
opps, i was thinking Carol Kaye
Steve Volaric 6:33:52 PM
Was just listening to the Wedding Present cover of this earlier. BTW, the new monthly singles they’re putting out this year are good so far!
Randy Marthins 6:34:02 PM
Carol Kaye was a boss
Monica Kane 6:34:24 PM
Lizbot - you are welcome!
DSM 6:34:28 PM
Bass Boss
Lizbot (host) 6:36:01 PM
Hi Steve! Good to know. I gotta check them out. Been a while since I saw what the wedding present is up to!
Readie 6:36:06 PM
Amen, @Randy and DSM
Randy Marthins 6:36:10 PM
Carol King wrote Monkees songs; Carol Kaye played on Beach Boys songs; the Monkees lived on the beach; it all comes together
TAndy 6:36:18 PM
Such a pretty song. 💙
Lizbot (host) 6:36:32 PM
@Rofflestomp - the best parts of head for me are the beginning on the bridge/water and that ending
Readie 6:36:42 PM
lol, Randy
Ossy Hyouka 6:36:46 PM
Ayane, a cute singer I heard since from Stitching Pink
Lizbot (host) 6:37:05 PM
@Dennis - oooooh, I won't tell Mary!
ROFFLESTOMP 6:37:55 PM
@Lizbot - it's been so long I really need to revisit it, along with 200 Motels.
Lizbot (host) 6:38:18 PM
@Dennis - I love Mystery Train! The Japanese plum with Screamin' Jay and Cinque Lee as the bellhops! That scene KILLS ME. Tell Mary the fans are clamoring for MT!
Dennis Linggg 6:40:29 PM
@liz that scene is the best! That red suit Screaming Jay is wearing is beautiful. The Queen never dressed that good. I told mary that if she gets in the chat not to scroll down!
Mr Mic 6:42:42 PM
Making playlists *is* packing!
Dennis Linggg 6:42:53 PM
Will you be near Chicago?
Mr Mic 6:43:13 PM
And: Safe travels! Enjoy the Shore!!
Lizbot (host) 6:44:22 PM
Hi Mr. Mic - I strongly agree! 100% Necessary!!
Lizbot (host) 6:46:35 PM
@Dennis - I WILL, and I am SO tempted to go there, but there just won't be time. I'm trying to get back to Philly for July 4th weekend (my birthday) and spend that down the shore! I have thankfully been to Chicago before, but only once about 10 years ago
Monica Kane 6:46:57 PM
Catching up on the last few minutes - my seaweed was burning, making dinner...
Mr Mic 6:47:04 PM
My Mom-Mom would chastise us for "not loving Sea Isle enough" when we couldn't make it down the Shore.
Lizbot (host) 6:47:27 PM
@Rofflestomp - Might have a 200 Motels home screening soon!
Lizbot (host) 6:47:45 PM
@Ossy - yes! I am really digging Ayane's vocals!
Mr Mic 6:48:03 PM
Centerville! A real nice place to raise your kids up!
Monica Kane 6:48:08 PM
Zappa is dear to my heart Lizbot and Rofflestomp
Lizbot (host) 6:48:09 PM
@Randy - ha! I all comes together on the beach- fitting for this playlist
Lizbot (host) 6:49:28 PM
@Monica Kane - I saw the Zappa Band open for King Crimson at the Mann last fall!
Ossy Hyouka 6:49:53 PM
Thought she was Ayane again!
Lizbot (host) 6:50:15 PM
@Mr Mic - oh my god. that is hilarious. Your mom sounds like my mom. Trust me, mom, I go down the shore every chance I get !!
Monica Kane 6:50:29 PM
Lizbot - so great! I saw Zappa in the early 70's
Monica Kane 6:50:56 PM
A theatre in North Jersey.
Lizbot (host) 6:51:01 PM
BTW all you shore-bound folks - Step aside Mary Lee, there's a NEW shark in town! A juvenile male Great White was spotted off the coast of Sea Isle City last week!
Lizbot (host) 6:51:24 PM
Heeeeeere we GO!
Lizbot (host) 6:51:50 PM
JOHN LURIE CONTENT. JARMUSCH CONTENT. SHARK CONTENT. FISHING WITH JOHN
Lizbot (host) 6:52:01 PM
we daughter always sang this as a toddler!
ROFFLESTOMP 6:52:54 PM
@Monica - I saw Zappa at the Spectrum, more than once. :)
DSM 6:52:57 PM
Maybe the best episode, tho they are all the best episode
Mr Mic 6:53:27 PM
Sea Isle City represent!!
Dennis Linggg 6:54:52 PM
@liz have you been to Irazu? Jon Solomon and a couple other Chicago peeps told us to go and it was amazing Costa Rican food and amazing shakes.
Lizbot (host) 6:54:59 PM
reminds me of when, for a laugh, jay barnes of the Wprb show Provoke the Listener, which followed Doubleplusgood about 15 years ago, claimed on air the station had changed formats to all classic rock and our new name was WPRB - THE SHARK!, which was immediately followed by his co-host Vanessa emitting a weak "Shark growl" sound!
Lizbot (host) 6:55:36 PM
Half the calls we got were angry and half were delighted and requesting Skynyrd
Monica Kane 6:56:27 PM
@Rofflestomp - Very cool to have seen him. I moved to Phil area in late 80's so our venues were Academy of music in NYC and Capital theatre. Zappa was a genius!
Lizbot (host) 6:56:31 PM
@Dennis - Yes! Jon recommended that place to me before my Chicago trip a decade ago! It was a highlight - sat outside under their roof on the patio with a heart of palm salad and an avocado shake!
Dennis Linggg 6:58:03 PM
@liz yes! So good!
Lizbot (host) 6:58:45 PM
@Dennis - It was SO much better than the deep dish pizzas we tried at Pequods, the original Pizzeria Uno and one other place I can't recall. I have decided I just really don't like deep dish. They take forever to make and they are really some sort of heavy savory PIE, not a pizza, dammit!
Lizbot (host) 6:59:27 PM
@Dennis - would be interesting to eat Irazu again after having been to Costa Rica back in 2018 and having CR cuisine to compare it to. Loved the food I had in Uvita especially
Lizbot (host) 6:59:52 PM
@Mr. Mic - Yes! Sea Isle Sharks United for Chum!
Lizbot (host) 7:01:40 PM
LBI (by way of New Hope) represent!
Ossy Hyouka 7:01:41 PM
Classic summer sunset highway melody!
Brian D 7:01:59 PM
WEEM! 2 shows this weekend in Atlantic City
Lizbot (host) 7:02:04 PM
@Ossy - Truth! Recorded in Holgate, LBI, where I will be heading either tomorrow or Saturday
Wes Steenson 7:02:09 PM
TWO XTC songs today! A bonus boogie from XTC as Lee Paris once said. And a Monkees classic! Hey, hey!
Lizbot (host) 7:02:32 PM
@Brian D - Cue Brian as soon as Ween appears! ha! WEEMS indeed
Lizbot (host) 7:02:37 PM
Hi Wes!
Brian D 7:02:40 PM
trip trip trip
ROFFLESTOMP 7:03:03 PM
@Monica - Those venues are great!
Lizbot (host) 7:03:21 PM
more Robyn for summertime!
Brian D 7:03:26 PM
ROBYN!
Mr Mic 7:03:48 PM
pile on the Robyn!
Lizbot (host) 7:04:20 PM
@Brian D - I gave Robyn a drawing I made of a cake, labeled cake, and I hope he absorbed it for a millisecond before it undoubtedly wound up in the trash!
Lizbot (host) 7:04:57 PM
@Mr Mic - Enough Robyn for all! Had to bring out Underwater Moonlight and this song as well, So much Robyn teeming over
Monica Kane 7:05:33 PM
@rofflestomp Yes! seems like forever ago
Brian D 7:06:43 PM
A man of many great shirts and greater stories.
Andrew Gruen 7:06:45 PM
we can never have too much Robyn!
Monica Kane 7:07:19 PM
@rofflestomp - Spectrum is a great venue too, such great places in Philadelphia for music
Lizbot (host) 7:07:34 PM
@Roffle & Monica - I can still touch a piece of The Spectrum every time I go over my friend Carey's house. She bought three of the red seats before it closed and put them in her living room!
Lizbot (host) 7:08:04 PM
Shameless NJ Bruce-ery coming up
Brian D 7:08:05 PM
I left something under those seats... (shhh... don't tell mom)
Lizbot (host) 7:08:12 PM
Hi Andrew!
Lizbot (host) 7:08:36 PM
@Andrew - It has been said, and it was been proven. No Robyn will be turned away from WPRB airwaves!
Andrew Gruen 7:08:39 PM
hi there!
Ossy Hyouka 7:08:51 PM
Sounds exciting Liz, hope you'll have loads of paradise fun, with Ocean Man playing!
Lizbot (host) 7:09:26 PM
@DSM - Hard to choose, but yes, Shark fishing in Montauk with Jarmusch and that particular insane narration is my favorite!
Lizbot (host) 7:10:56 PM
@Dennis - I'm glad Mary's ear is healing up! I have a lot to say about that Birdy episode. That's a movie I KEPT seeing only the middle chunk of on cable as a kid! Now I finally know how it ends!
Wes Steenson 7:10:59 PM
If you visit Memphis don’t forget to try out Jiffy Squid! 🦑💨
Brian D 7:11:37 PM
Boardwalk song totally
Lizbot (host) 7:11:51 PM
@Wes - HA! Oh man, Jiffy Squid, Tom Waits DJing, rare Japanese plums, Screamin' Jay working the front desk - Who WOULDN'T wanna go to Memphis?!
Wes Steenson 7:12:07 PM
AAAAUGHH!! Springsteen?! Santa’s gotta go.
Brian D 7:12:27 PM
Yeah not a fan but this one is a charmer
Readie 7:13:00 PM
Ah, cool evenings down the shore!
Lizbot (host) 7:13:39 PM
@Brian D - Yes! I Really wanted to see Bruce for the Magic tour, but not being a hardcore diehard fan, I didn't act the millisecond it went on sale and missed it. Of all the most recent, last 20 years, albums of his, this is the one I like most and wanted to finally bite the bullet and see him (for 5 hours, undoubtedly!) Instead, I've seen SO MANY BRUCE COVER BANDS for free in outdoor concerts down the shore!
Lizbot (host) 7:14:04 PM
@Readie - Hattie is all about this song. She put it on a couple of her mixes!
Lizbot (host) 7:14:16 PM
@Wes - haha, sorry!
Lizbot (host) 7:14:26 PM
@Wes - You were warned!
Brian D 7:14:32 PM
Ya former band mate is big fan. When this came out I thought... hmmm this is not actually too bad.
Readie 7:15:43 PM
That’s cool , @Lizbot! Hattie def has it goin’ on!
Lizbot (host) 7:16:06 PM
@Brian D - Srsly. Before that album, I basically only listened to Nebraska and a few cuts from older albums, but I dig some of Magic
Lizbot (host) 7:16:26 PM
@Readie - She is inundated with music and pop culture from George & I!
DSM 7:16:35 PM
growing up in NJ I shunned Bruce, it was just too Jerz-core for me as a kid, but he's grown on me for sure with some perspective
Brian D 7:17:17 PM
Ya Nebraska not bad. I read some about that lp couple years back and there was rabbit hole material about the different release versions. US vs Japan I think?
Readie 7:17:21 PM
Of course- what cool parents she has!!!!!
Lizbot (host) 7:17:21 PM
@Dennis - If you're revisiting Winona, is she gonna turn up on MVM soon? Are there any W Ryder's 80s movies Mary hasn't seen? BTW, I LOVE the intro song for MVM
Brian D 7:18:19 PM
Now I am thinking about Atlantic City the film that has popped into chat in recent days. Sarandon, Lancaster.
Lizbot (host) 7:18:26 PM
This, to me, is one of the ultimate summer jams
Wes Steenson 7:18:51 PM
Okay, I’m back.
Brian D 7:18:52 PM
Yeah Jo-Jo nailed it
Mr Mic 7:18:56 PM
oh yesyesyes
Mary Jones 7:19:18 PM
Hello Lizbot and all! Really loving the show tonight!
Brian D 7:19:53 PM
Washin the car in the driveway feelin
Lizbot (host) 7:20:21 PM
@Brian D - hmmm, gotta check that out. I do love the song Atlantic City - Chickenman philly mobster content! My kid likes that one too. Incorporated into one of my many shore mixes. Speaking of AC, did you ever seen The King of Marvin Gardens? A very specific post-fall of AC as glamorous, pre-casino period of AC history, plus Bruce Dern is always a bonus!
Lizbot (host) 7:20:25 PM
Hi Mary!
Monica Kane 7:20:42 PM
@DSM Bruce's first two albums were revolutionary!
Lizbot (host) 7:20:56 PM
@Mary - Thanks! I have loads of thoughts about yr Birdy episode, which I really enjoyed. That's a movie I repeatedly saw only PARTS of on cable as a kid
DSM 7:21:11 PM
The Swimmer, with Lancaster, also a great summer vibe, kinda haha
Lizbot (host) 7:21:13 PM
@Brian D - ha!
Monica Kane 7:21:53 PM
@DSM OMG! The Swimmer, a classic!
Mary Jones 7:22:02 PM
@Lizbot oh interesting! I would love to hear your thoughts! (When you’re free, naturally.) That movie was a real surprise for me!
Lizbot (host) 7:22:08 PM
@Monica - Definitely! He achieved that Wall of Sound feeling that he admired so much in Phil Spector's music. That early stuff is great. My parents saw him at the Main Point in Ardmore before he got big!
Lizbot (host) 7:22:58 PM
@DSM - oh YEAH! That's one that I have heard really good things about! Thanks for reminding me about The Swimmer! My mom used to talk up Burt Lancaster a lot. I might have to watch it with her
Lizbot (host) 7:23:10 PM
@Mary - yeah, and NOW I know the ending!!!
Monica Kane 7:23:21 PM
Lizbot, yes, we saw him in Central Park in 73 or 74. Exactly what you say!
Lizbot (host) 7:23:40 PM
@Mary - BTW, a little birdy of a non-Modine persuasion told me to tell you to watch Mystery Train on the pod!
Monica Kane 7:24:31 PM
Lizbot and @DSM Burt Lancaster incredible. Birdman of Alcatraz is another brilliant movie
DSM 7:24:36 PM
Monica it's such a great movie! Lizbot, do watch!
Lizbot (host) 7:25:06 PM
@DSM - same (regarding Bruce)
Monica Kane 7:25:20 PM
@DSM - putting it on my watchlist now!
Mary Jones 7:25:34 PM
@Lizbot oh, I’m really looking forward to Mystery Train—I think we’ll do that before the summer is out, it’ll remind me of the summer we went to Memphis and saw the solar eclipse.
Lizbot (host) 7:26:41 PM
@Mary - Actually been meaning to get to the MVM insta/twitter and post my comments on Birdy episode. I now really do need to watch it from beginning to end. And you weren't lying about Nicolas Cage in that movie. I revisited some stills!
Mary Jones 7:27:28 PM
@Lizbot I WAS FLOORED.
Wes Steenson 7:27:32 PM
Donovan and Jonathan Richman have almost cleared the residual Spr*ngst**n out of my poor old ears.
Mary Jones 7:27:57 PM
We release our episode on Vampire’s Kiss tonight, and boy what a whipsaw from last week.
Lizbot (host) 7:29:13 PM
@Mary - oh man! Might need to listen while driving down the shore this weekend, although it's more likely I'll listen while packing for the shore and then listen to music on the drive. I NEED podcasts to survive to acute pain of packing for anything ever
Mr Mic 7:29:25 PM
Pavement came to town in grad school the week of my quals. It's the only time I ever did any kind of takehome ahead of time.
Lizbot (host) 7:29:37 PM
@Wes - Glad to hear you've been purified by the Jojos and Donovans!
Lizbot (host) 7:30:15 PM
@Mr. Mic - THAT would be a big motivator for me as well! I had such a great time at their reunion in Central Park a buncha years ago
Wes Steenson 7:30:42 PM
@Mary Jones “A! B! C! D! E! F! G! H! I! J! K! L! M! N! O! P! Q! R! S! T! U! V! W! X! Y! Z!”
Dennis Linggg 7:30:54 PM
@liz so we’re thinking Great Balls of Fire for a 1980s Winona movie. Mary’s seen Beetlejuice and Heathers, so I can’t use Unrest’s Teenage Suicide song for that :(
Brian D 7:31:05 PM
A prb classic
Mary Jones 7:31:10 PM
@Wes oh my god, yes!
Mr Mic 7:31:19 PM
It was truly heartening about 5-7 years ago when a young'un in Prospect Heights was playing S&E
Lizbot (host) 7:32:17 PM
@Dennis - oh boy. she played his like 15 year-old girlfriend, I recall. As much as I aspired to play Great Balls of Fire on the piano as a kid, that movie didn't sit well with me!
Brian D 7:32:30 PM
Oh Gary... this is just right
Lizbot (host) 7:32:57 PM
@Brian D - taking a spacey Gary trip is always welcome in my mind
Lizbot (host) 7:33:45 PM
@Dennis - Hattie wants her middle school play next year to be the Heathers musical and she suggested it repeatedly to her drama teacher, but it is not happening for many reasons!
Christine 7:35:23 PM
June🐞...great show name. Hi @Lizbot & all!
Lizbot (host) 7:35:39 PM
Hi Christine! Thanks! How're ya doin?
Dennis Linggg 7:36:00 PM
Hey Christine!
Brian D 7:36:23 PM
Another summer classic. Reminding me of your June show(s) last year(s)
Lizbot (host) 7:37:36 PM
@Mary / Dennis - Okay, SOME brief thoughts whilst I listened to MVM Birdy: My friend Drucie McDaniels was also in 12 Monkeys, in the asylum scene she dances with Brad Pitt. I would love to hear yr 12 Monkeys story some time, Dennis. And also would love to know why Terry Gilliam thought one would need to sleep in a motel room overnight to make the extremely short trek from Philly to Baltimore!
Christine 7:37:55 PM
So summery 🍹
Tim Kilgannon 7:38:11 PM
Killer summer sounds especially Donovan
Ossy Hyouka 7:38:15 PM
Sounded a bit like Black Moth rainbow
Wes Steenson 7:38:19 PM
@Mary Jones A British podcast I follow did an episode on Vampire’s Kiss awhile back. They said that movie is not available for streaming anywhere, and in order to review it they had to shell out some serious 💷 for a used 📀. Hope you’re better situated!
Mary Jones 7:38:37 PM
@Lizbot That motel room bugged me the moment I saw it. I had the same issue with Something Wild.
Lizbot (host) 7:38:45 PM
@Tim - Thanks! Good to hear from you. It's been a while!
Lizbot (host) 7:39:01 PM
@Ossy- oh yeah, I could see that
Mary Jones 7:39:29 PM
@Wes the only place I saw it recently was for $4 to rent on Apple, and for free with commercials on Pluto TV, so maybe we lucked out.
Lizbot's catbird 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 (Rob from MD) 7:40:23 PM
Summer songs, yes
Mary Jones 7:40:56 PM
@Lizbot oh man, this B&S song takes me back to the summer of 1999 when I got to spend three weeks doing a summer program in England, one of the happiest times of my life.
Lizbot (host) 7:41:34 PM
@Mary - Yeah, but you know what? I had been meaning to rewatch Something Wild for the first time in decades and when I saw it pop up on MVM, it put a fire under my butt to watch it again before listening to the episode and I REALLY enjoyed it. What a fun movie! I had just revisited another Feelies soundtrack movie this year - After Hours - and I liked Something Wild more
Wes Steenson 7:41:58 PM
@Lizbot @Mary @Dennis I’ve driven to Baltimore from NE Phila many times to play for the contra dance there. It’s a hike, but doesn’t require an overnight stay.
Mary Jones 7:42:24 PM
@Lizbot Oh no, I *LOVED* Something Wild--but I thought it very funny that they made a drive from Manhattan to the Philly suburbs take two days.
Mr Mic 7:42:54 PM
Mid Valley Mercenaries podcast?!?
Lizbot (host) 7:43:11 PM
@Mary - Oh wow! Did you go to the Bowlie Weekender?? Sounds like an amazing time. I am jealous of my mom's 20s spent in London, first as a Fulbright scholar and then just there (illegally) working odd jobs and living with 6 flatmates in a "distressed gentile person's" basement!
Lizbot (host) 7:43:46 PM
@Wes- That's what I'm saying! Do your research, Gilliam!
Lizbot's catbird 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 (Rob from MD) 7:43:49 PM
Is Something Wild the movie where they drive to Florida or something from New York City?
Mr Mic 7:44:11 PM
And Gilliam's the American one FFS
Mary Jones 7:45:09 PM
@Lizbot sadly no--I was there late July and August of 1999. The lyrics just evoke the time over there for me, that's all. I wish I'd been there longer than a few weeks in the summer, but that gave me a taste. Your mom must've had an amazing time!
Dennis Linggg 7:45:43 PM
@wes, liz I’m embarrassed to say I was cast to be an extra in a scene in 12 monkeys but it was in Baltimore and I was to lazy to track down a car.
Mary Jones 7:45:54 PM
@Rob/catbird I think they only get as far as Virginia?
Lizbot's catbird 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 (Rob from MD) 7:47:27 PM
@Mary, that works. I only saw it once, when it had come out, so I don't remember very much. I (think I) remember the roadtrip part and something about Virginia.
Wes Steenson 7:47:31 PM
@Mary Jones - found your podcast! Will be listening soon.
Mary Jones 7:48:11 PM
@Wes oh cool! I hope you enjoy!
Dennis Linggg 7:48:14 PM
@wes yay!
Lizbot (host) 7:48:17 PM
@Dennis - haha, I wander if you couldve convinced a friend to do you a favor and get you to Philly! How did the casting call work? George & I were extras (in stiflingly hot 70s polyester gear) in that movie Invincible starring Mark Wahlberg (it wasn't very good.) The best part was hearing the stories of some of the more colorful SAG extras who regaled us with loads of Law& Order tales. I hate that show, but everyone has been on it since there are a million damn episodes.
bravedelay 7:48:27 PM
Sprinted to my radio to crank this one. Great show @Lizbot!
Lizbot (host) 7:48:39 PM
Hi Bravedelay - Thanks!
Lizbot's catbird 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 (Rob from MD) 7:49:29 PM
@Lizbot, what does the SAG in SAG extras stand for?
Christine 7:49:31 PM
@Lizbot 🤖, you might already know this, but I saw that Cheer-Accident will be playing somewhere in DC on 8/15.
Lizbot's catbird 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 (Rob from MD) 7:49:58 PM
Thanks for that notice, Christine!
Dennis Linggg 7:49:59 PM
@liz my girlfriend at the time was a set dresser. She and I handed in our pics and we got cast. But I think we were kind of fighting when we got cast so I was ambivalent.
Lizbot (host) 7:50:33 PM
@Rob In Maryland/catbird & Mary - yeah, I can't even tell at once point where the hell they are in Something Wild. PA, Florida, points in between? All I know is evidently there are people beatboxing on the sidewalk everywhere they go, whether NYC or tiny towns!
Wes Steenson 7:51:02 PM
@Catbird Screen Actor’s Guild
Lizbot's catbird 🇺🇦 🌻 🦀 🐦 (Rob from MD) 7:51:20 PM
@Christine & Lizbot, Cheer Accident are at "8/7. DC. Rhizome"
Mary Jones 7:51:39 PM
IIRC, they filmed some of the Pennsylvania scenes in either Maryland or Florida, and the set dressing takes a lot of pains to make it appear to be Pennsylvania, but you can buy beer in a convenience store, and OH BOY NO YOU CAN NOT

Thank you, Lizbot's Catbird! 🐦

@Lizbot, what I remember is they say they are driving in Florida and I'm seeing that they are on US 1 in Virginia somewhere between Ashland and Fredericksbug.
Lizbot (host) 7:52:41 PM
@Dennis- aaaah, makes sense you avoided it then. Yeah, I got yelled at for eating the SAG actors' buffet lunch when I was non-SAG, but they only had meat sandwiches for us non-union chumps and I was vegan at the time! Other crimes committed on that set: The production managers calling Super Pretzel brand pretzels "Philly pretzels"! Being threatened that if any of us called Mark Wahlberg "Marky Mark" we'd be in big trouble!

@Mary, I didn't know that about Pennsylvania, because I grew up and went to college in Virginia

I love playing this song while driving over the causeway bridge to LBI

And I think Maryland other than Montgomery County was similar
Mary Jones 7:53:38 PM
@Lizbot I don't know if I could resist of Marky Mark under my breath.

Thanks for the Screen Actor's Guild explanation!
Pethiieeeeee 7:53:51 PM
Happy for double XTC tonight!!!
DSM 7:54:12 PM
Lizbot, great show! Have a lovely rollicking road trip. I look forward to tales from the road and your return!
Mary Jones 7:54:22 PM
@Rob yeah, the laws here are kind of hard to explain--I even get into it on the episode, because we have a lot of crazy rules about alcohol in PA and how to purchase it.
Dennis Linggg 7:54:26 PM
@liz haha! Did they serve “submarine” sandwiches? Because that would be the last straw.
Dennis Linggg 7:55:13 PM
@liz what scene are you in? I think saw it once in the theater.
Lizbot (host) 7:55:19 PM
Thank you, DSM! I hope I will see a lot of record stores and make a michigan / rust belt themed show when I'm back!
Lizbot (host) 7:55:37 PM
Hello Peth!!! I told everyone on air about the DOUBLE PETH GOOD SHOW next week!!!
Readie 7:55:46 PM
Great show, Lizbot-Have a safe, fun trip!!

@Mary, Montgomery Co. MD has strange laws too: Only one outlet per chain is allowed to sell alcohol. So, only the Trader Joe's in Rockville can do it, the one in Silver Spring can not
Wes Steenson 7:56:05 PM
The driving discussion is reminding me of a part of “Los Angeles Plays Itself” where they mention that character drive between locations 25mi or more apart in mere minutes.
Lizbot (host) 7:56:35 PM
@Dennis - ha, we're just crowd scenes, cheering in the stands that are supposed to be Veteran's Stadium, but since it had already been demolished, It was shot at Penn's stadium
TAndy 7:56:39 PM
