Habitat Enrichment

Nov 24, 2022 7:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Music

With Krista

Habitat Enrichment is the concept of introducing novelty to an animal's enclosure to keep it from getting bored or sad. Let me play you something fun. Genres span world and time, just like a cat with a box to play in.

Some specialties you can usually hear a little on my show: Luk Thuong, 60s crooners, cow punk, and synthwave. If you don't like the song currently playing, wait approximately 2 minutes for something else!

Thanksgiving

Music for mourning, music for feasting and moods in between

good morning

Hello. I like this Taam Ming Ensemble.
Krista (host) 7:13:33 AM
you're hearing the srlay, which is a nine gong gamelan and drums
Krista (host) 7:14:05 AM
it has a quadruple reed
Krista (host) 7:14:42 AM
ស្រឡៃ
Krista (host) 7:15:51 AM
circular breathing is used to play it. the rest of the instruments in the ensemble tune to it.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 7:19:49 AM
Very dreamy.
Emily Moore 7:19:49 AM
Happy Thanksgiving!

this is very motivating wash the dishes music. we left ourselves a full sink last night, ha
Krista (host) 7:43:07 AM
it's from a musician who does residencies at super exclusive German techno clubs. now for your dishes!
Krista (host) 7:43:59 AM
Mauerpfeiffer is one I know he's had a residency at, I'm not sure about Berghain but his music fits the vibe
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 7:50:35 AM
Thanks for the link, Krista. Cambodian! I had originally thought it might be Balinese.
Krista (host) 7:53:07 AM
it sounded at first like the hne to me
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 7:55:55 AM
Good morning fellow listeners
Krista (host) 7:56:06 AM
this song I'm playing now has some terrible sound quality at times but it's so good that it's worth the mental soundblocking
Krista (host) 7:56:36 AM
good morning, TAndy
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 7:56:58 AM
I have one bluetooth speaker on the left of me but somehow I'm hearing the song on my right side too. The audio quality is an enhancement
Krista (host) 7:57:25 AM
You're hearing it after I've adjusted it, haha
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 7:57:41 AM
dat wow/flutter just then
Krista (host) 7:58:04 AM
the wow wow pedal so good
Krista (host) 7:58:17 AM
and of course, her voice is just stella
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 8:01:20 AM
Ah, I meant the variations in speed at times. Similar to a belt driven record player with a worn out belt. It's an aesthetic I can dig
Emily Moore 8:02:54 AM
thank you!
dan Cochrane 8:18:23 AM
Happy Thanksgiving Krista, everyone here this morning. Baby giggle gets me every time. “What’s Up Doc?” she’s adorable!
dan Cochrane 8:18:48 AM
Bab’s giggle, sheesh!
dan Cochrane 8:19:12 AM
The Oyster obviously!
Krista (host) 8:19:34 AM
good morning, Dan
dan Cochrane 8:21:55 AM
Nytimes a couple days ago had the most interesting piece on turkey’s, stunning photos. Tom’s having helper “wingmen” assist them in mating ritual. Who knew?
dan Cochrane 8:27:46 AM
Once again I’m thankful this season, for not having sports OCD.
Krista (host) 8:31:24 AM
my hometown's football team lost and with it, took all interest I had in football
jimboo 8:31:45 AM
Yeoooo peeps! 🐥🐥🐥
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 8:32:18 AM
Good morning Dan, Jimboo. I love this Link Wray piece! I've heard it so many times before but never knew what it was <3
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 8:34:12 AM
Guatemala MENTIONED
dan Cochrane 8:40:04 AM
Fascinating! Sorry about your team K. Beard or snood? Again nytimes, “snood” mentioned.
Krista (host) 8:41:38 AM
snood and comb are the same thing
Krista (host) 8:41:47 AM
beard is a different thing
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 8:42:11 AM
"Linda please. Oh god." hahahaha
dan Cochrane 8:42:13 AM
It’s only 2nd year (thanks to Covid) Walmart employees get Thanksgiving off. Never before that.
dan Cochrane 8:42:56 AM
Comb, of course! Apologies to Audubon.
Krista (host) 8:43:10 AM
not at Big Lots, which is open from 7am - 9pm for some reason today
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 8:44:07 AM
Eugh
dan Cochrane 8:44:15 AM
I like the smaller pies Walmart had. Crusts very shortbread like.
dan Cochrane 8:46:56 AM
Krista have you heard Los Straightjackets cover, with guitar tab, and semi-ugly Christmas sweater of, “Lucy & Linus” on YouTube? Actually has a ska rhythm.
Krista (host) 8:47:51 AM
I haven't, no
dan Cochrane 8:50:41 AM
In upstate NY as I left work this time of year I could set my watch by when the dozens of wild turkey’s would all fly straight up into the trees, dusk.
dan Cochrane 8:52:09 AM
“Cold Turkey”, Plastic Ono Band, “Thank You” LED Zeppelin all I could come up with.
dan Cochrane 8:53:53 AM
If only Little Feat had called it, “Turkey Skin Music”, darn.
Li Maria 8:56:05 AM
Happy Thanksgiving Krista and everyone! Krista, this show is great for bracing oneself for the inevitable mask-bashing fest--"scarred our children for life"--from the one relative who never had children. Could be worse, tho
dan Cochrane 8:58:25 AM
Back at ya, Li!🎃🦃🎄🎉’23...🕳
Krista (host) 8:59:45 AM
I feel that, Li. Let that flow off your back like water off a duck
Li Maria 9:00:53 AM
Quack-quack! I mean, gobble-gobble ;)
Li Maria 9:02:18 AM
Ooh, love this song and sentiment!
Krista (host) 9:02:22 AM
better theoretically (and falsely) scarred for life by a mask than literally having scarred lungs for life
Li Maria 9:03:01 AM
ikr?!!
dan Cochrane 9:03:48 AM
Speaking of over eating, a gluten for punishment decided to run again. Typo intentional.
Li Maria 9:05:50 AM
lol@Dan. Tho I scoffed the first time and look what happened
John Tobias 9:08:52 AM
Can’t stay, but this is my morning soundtrack. Happy Thanksgiving
Krista (host) 9:09:36 AM
thanks, John
dan Cochrane 9:10:05 AM
NPR practically had Pence in a headlock, trying to get him to repeat something he said years ago. That his boss was still, “a good man”. Can’t top that. Didn’t one song sound like Nirvana? Marcy Playground?
Krista (host) 9:14:28 AM
lol I wish they would put him in a literal headlock
dan Cochrane 9:17:41 AM
Nothing tougher to choose than best pie! Any other time of year fruit pies, blueberry, cherry. Today? A sliver of pumpkin, pecan. NO Cool Whip! Apocryphal anywhere on the table.
Li Maria 9:20:05 AM
mmm, one of my favorites is definitely sweet potato. I haven't made one in a long time--I'll have to rectify that
dan Cochrane 9:20:12 AM
I actually had stuffing that had cinnamon swirl bread in it. OMG. Desert. But I’d take stuffing, gravy over any desert. Sorry.
Krista (host) 9:20:25 AM
sour cream and raisin pie is an underrated pie
dan Cochrane 9:21:40 AM
I had Kentucky Bourbon Pie once. But SC raisin does sound good.
Li Maria 9:21:59 AM
@Krista--never heard of that one! I'll have to look it up
dan Cochrane 9:23:07 AM
Ok, so Brussels sprouts OR asparagus?
dan Cochrane 9:23:22 AM
No 3rd choice!
Krista (host) 9:24:27 AM
brussels as asparagus is wildly out of season
Li Maria 9:24:32 AM
Just roasted asparagus last night--so good!
Li Maria 9:26:06 AM
True, Krista. I said that to my husband when he brought them home from the market. Must've been from South America or something
Li Maria 9:26:38 AM
definitely not local, unfortunately
dan Cochrane 9:26:42 AM
It’s a tough call for me too. I really miss my ex mother in laws creamed onions. To Die For. Never been able to duplicate them.
Krista (host) 9:27:32 AM
my favorite thanksgiving food i'm looking forward to today is carrot souffle
Krista (host) 9:27:44 AM
my husband's grandma makes it and it's so tasty
dan Cochrane 9:29:30 AM
Oh man! That golden brown breaded topping. Just unreal. Thank you Nancy!
dan Cochrane 9:30:23 AM
Wow, soufflé anything.
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 9:32:10 AM
Hahahaha I love this song it's so funny
dan Cochrane 9:32:40 AM
Food it’s the end of the world as we know it. And I feel...full.
Krista (host) 9:36:48 AM
I'm getting hungry just thinking about what I will eat today
dan Cochrane 9:43:43 AM
This year’s turkey gimmick. Martha will “soak a clean t-shirt in wine and butter”. Wrap the bird. T-shirt, cheesecloth, what’s the diff?
Krista (host) 9:49:24 AM
for me it's always weird eating turkey that isn't wild!! my family hunts turkey so I didn't have grocery store turkey until I was 18 years old
Ossy Hyouka 9:49:29 AM
Hi Krista, happy feast day and Chef Patti Labelle.
Krista (host) 9:49:48 AM
Hi Ossy, same to you
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:49:54 AM
@ Krista (host) Thanks for enriching our morning, as is your habit(at), especially on Thanksgiving. Happy Lego-ing and feeding to your son!
Ossy Hyouka 9:51:04 AM
Be further enriched watching the Thanksgiving parade and seeing Goku from Dragon Ball fly, the third time.
Krista (host) 9:51:55 AM
I think Evangelion would make some awesome floats
Krista (host) 9:52:01 AM
a crying Shinji floating overhead
Li Maria 9:52:10 AM
Krista, thanks for the Thanksgiving morning soundtrack, and for introducing me to the gorgeous ocellated turkey. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family
Krista (host) 9:52:37 AM
though actually the anime best suited to thanksgiving imo is Restaurant to Another World
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 9:53:00 AM
I would love to see a Rei Clone float invasion ngl
Krista (host) 9:53:54 AM
if they die they can be replaced
Ossy Hyouka 9:54:33 AM
They better get Kirby to fly, since he's mass iconic, since Sailor Moon and Luffy are seeable as well!
Richard from Rocky Hill 9:54:39 AM
@ Ossy Hyouka Very wonderful indeed, you-go Goku! Interesting how in the West, the dragon is often associated with powerful evil, but in the east it's typically associated with powerful good and blessings. Wishing you all only happy dragons, today and onward!
Krista (host) 9:54:50 AM
I'm on tomorrow for Readie so if you have any black friday requests (richard has already gotten his in) email me at habitatkrista@gmail.com
Ossy Hyouka 9:56:46 AM
Richard - True, Goku is based on Monkey Guy from Dragon Of The West! Big ups to Al Roker(Zoe Kravitz's uncle), Hoda Kotb and etc having him in the line up 3x and promoting Dragon Ball Super Broly and DBS Hero movies in the past two years!
