Krista (host) 5:01:13 PM
good afternoon
Rob from Maryland 5:16:29 PM
Hello Krista! Thanks for playing Horsegirl, and this song
Krista (host) 5:16:52 PM
hey rob! fall into the wormhole
Rob from Maryland 5:17:35 PM
I'm not! I just found the lyrics to this song and I see that birds and binoculars are not actually discussed.
Krista (host) 5:17:50 PM
yes!! I was about to discuss that
Krista (host) 5:17:59 PM
Rob from Maryland 5:18:03 PM
Being a birder, this song's title immediately piqued my interest.
Krista (host) 5:18:07 PM
I guess that's the trap eh
Krista (host) 5:18:35 PM
I'm only an amateur but I did love seeing a scarlet tanager and reading the NYC parks department birding website
Rob from Maryland 5:18:49 PM
Krista (host) 5:18:55 PM
worms do rob
Krista (host) 5:19:00 PM
worms have to do with birds
Rob from Maryland 5:19:16 PM
Krista, how cool! I saw and heard some on migration
Rob from Maryland 5:19:34 PM
True, worms do have to do with birds
Rob from Maryland 5:21:10 PM
You don't have ac, Krista? Yikes!!!
Krista (host) 5:21:12 PM
I saw one just yesterday. I wonder how the warming climate will affect their migration
Rob from Maryland 5:21:45 PM
I wonder too.
Krista (host) 5:22:07 PM
I have one that's old and stinky, one of those portable things. But we haven't used it yet this summer
Rob from Maryland 5:22:17 PM
I did a lot of birding in May but haven't really done much this month.
Krista (host) 5:22:23 PM
I'm not sure it works tbh I should probably check
Rob from Maryland 5:22:44 PM
You should check! It's going to be even hotter tomorrow.
Krista (host) 5:23:18 PM
I'm in the attic room right now with the windows open, it's livable in a t shirt and linen shorts
Rob from Maryland 5:23:41 PM
We keep the house at about 78 to 80 degrees during the day in the summer, and 75 to 77 at night. But we would be really stressed without the a/c at all
Krista (host) 5:24:11 PM
Oh I feel you. My house is pretty wooded, 4 acres and that cools it considerably
Rob from Maryland 5:24:14 PM
The windows open usually help
Krista (host) 5:25:22 PM
when it gets super hot in summer I need AC for sure.
Rob from Maryland 5:25:32 PM
The woods really do help. The wooded park near our house can be 5 or even 10 degrees cooler than the more open areas, at sunrise. We often wear long-sleeved shirts there
Rob from Maryland 5:28:31 PM
In the (at the time) very hot summer of 1988, my urban group house bedroom was at street level but the bars on the windows prevented an a/c. So the overnight temperature only got down to the lower 80s for several days running. A floor fan was my savior
Krista (host) 5:29:36 PM
I didn't have AC in a 3rd floor brownstone in Minneapolis in 2005, it was blistering. I used to take as cold of a bath as I could to cool off.
Rob from Maryland 5:31:29 PM
I bet. I used to take 2 or 3 cold showers after getting home from work during that summer
Ambrose Hughes 5:34:04 PM
Hello Krista! Hello Rob!
Rob from Maryland 5:34:26 PM
Hello Ambrose!
Krista (host) 5:35:22 PM
Hi Ambrose!
Rob from Maryland 5:37:22 PM
Krista, are the birds that Lizbot is posting, publicly viewable? The unidentified one has me intrigued
Grink Ashman 5:39:11 PM
Hey, Krista, my neighbors are listening to WPRB!,.... well, because I have it cranked up to absurd levels.
Krista (host) 5:46:54 PM
hey Grink and I don't know Rob!
Brian D 5:48:17 PM
Classic Odetta
Krista (host) 5:51:59 PM
It was a treat to listen to the live recording. The pandemic really made me enjoy live recordings in a way I never had before.
Rob from Maryland 6:16:42 PM
Hooray for groundhogs!
Ossy Hyouka 6:22:02 PM
Yeah, groundhogs!
Rob from Maryland 6:30:23 PM
Krista, reading the "do you believe elephants conduct funerals" etc. reminded me of the Pink Military album and title song Do Animals Believe In God? from 1980
Krista (host) 6:31:17 PM
I've not listened to it.
Rob from Maryland 6:33:07 PM
I taped one of its songs off the radio years ago but never owned the whole album
Liz Bot 6:41:02 PM
Hey Krista! Hey Chat! Hello from Pittsburgh. Just left Detroit earlier this afternoon
Liz Bot 6:41:14 PM
Hooray for Odetta!
Liz Bot 6:42:55 PM
That’s an incredible story
Krista (host) 6:43:26 PM
hello liz bot!
Li Maria 6:43:34 PM
Way to go, Krista! RIP. IT. OFF!!!
Rob from Maryland 6:44:46 PM
I'm sorry you have had these incidents, Krista. The rip it off chanting is spectacular.
Krista (host) 6:46:05 PM
I think you'll find, Rob, that many have similar stories of fear, much much worse too
Krista (host) 6:46:46 PM
thank you for your kindness
Rob from Maryland 6:46:53 PM
Hi Liz Bot! How was your Michigan trip? Krista said earlier you had an unidentified bird. Please feel free to dm me about it.
Krista (host) 6:47:00 PM
and I agree Li Maria
Liz Bot 6:47:54 PM
hi Rob! I have a photo of one bird that briefly landed on my windowsill in Detroit this morning! Trip’s been great! Almost over, sadly
Liz Bot 6:48:52 PM
@Krista- I have too many stories like that. It’s an f’d up world for women
Li Maria 6:49:07 PM
Quick thinking on your part! You're right--so many women with so many stories
Liz Bot 6:49:12 PM
Hi Ossy! hi Brian D!
Ossy Hyouka 6:49:14 PM
Hi Liz
Grink Ashman 6:49:14 PM
Hey Liz Bot, you should hit up Fallingwater and Kentuck knob (Ohiopyle) on your way.
Liz Bot 6:49:31 PM
Hi Grink! Hi Li Maria! Hi Ambrose!
Li Maria 6:50:14 PM
Hi Liz Bot!
Rob from Maryland 6:50:31 PM
Krista, I have heard/read similar as well as worse stories over the years.
Rob from Maryland 6:50:55 PM
Each one of them saddens me
Rob from Maryland 6:51:04 PM
and angers me
Krista (host) 6:52:29 PM
Hi Ossy by the way, don't think I said hello!
Krista (host) 6:52:52 PM
And not quick thinking, just pure emotion on seeing something I didn't want to see
Krista (host) 6:53:21 PM
sometimes it's flight sometimes it's fight
Krista (host) 6:53:37 PM
sometimes it's regroup and charge up like Pikachu
Li Maria 6:55:39 PM
Ha, I know what you mean. One time I stupidly chased my mugger--was NOT thinking. I did get my stuff back and he was arrested but it could have gone much differently
Ossy Hyouka 6:57:37 PM
Hi Krista and superb rnb like Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and Sampa the Great!
Rob from Maryland 7:00:48 PM
Yikes, Li! I'm glad it turned out ok
Grink Ashman 7:00:54 PM
That was a crazy story, glad you were able to channel those emotions and boogie!
Li Maria 7:04:44 PM
Thanks, Rob. Luckily there were enough people in the subway who saw me running and screaming "He took my bag!" and I had a little group running w me and the guy was cornered
Rob from Maryland 7:10:55 PM
Li, excellent!
TAndy 7:11:35 PM
Aw hell naw I missed Daikaiju and Caravan Palace
Grink Ashman 7:12:15 PM
yeah , the neighbors hear this! Testing my sub. Holy shit!
Li Maria 7:23:12 PM
Love the name--Bootyspoon
Ossy Hyouka 7:23:15 PM
Mystical like last sorry Li that you had that experience of getting robbed. I had an agonizing night after a gym, a few years back losing my car key and was never found
Li Maria 7:29:30 PM
Sorry about your car key, Ossy--they can be expensive to replace!
Li Maria 7:32:18 PM
@Krista--Yeah, I really don't get the people who say "Gov't hands off" unless it's a woman's womb. SMDH
jimbeaux 7:33:01 PM
Evening Habitat! Helllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Ossy Hyouka 7:34:02 PM
Indeed, I got a backup clone, but can never replace and erase that traumatizing night, Li
Krista (host) 7:34:28 PM
hi Jimbeaux
Li Maria 7:34:46 PM
Oh, so there was more going on--so sorry, Ossy :(
Ossy Hyouka 7:37:37 PM
I spent a long night trying to find it retracing my steps, including ran into one rude filled laundry man, who threatened to call the cops for having my hands in my pocket for casual sake and it was cold. He thought I was high! Luckily a friend of mine stayed through my plight and gave me a ride home.
Li Maria 7:38:21 PM
Good friend :)
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:40:04 PM
Finally made my way over to the chat! Hi everyone!
Li Maria 7:40:33 PM
Hi Addie and Jimbeaux!
Krista (host) 7:40:46 PM
Hi Addie!
Addie 🐍 🐍 Plum 7:41:25 PM

Li Maria 7:45:41 PM
@Addie--good wild, I hope
Pethiieeeeee 7:46:34 PM
