Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 5:31:25 PM
Very minor thing: Can you make LizBot's mic a bit louder when you do your breaks?
Mary Jones 5:31:27 PM
@Lizbot it's definitely one of my favorite movies we've covered for the show.
Lizbot (host) 5:31:50 PM
@Jon - I'll work on it
Readie 5:32:23 PM
Just followed MVM!!!!
Lizbot (host) 5:32:29 PM
@Jon - using a different program than usual to accommodate the Skype
Mary Jones 5:33:13 PM
@Readie oh wow, thanks! Hope you enjoy the show!
Lizbot (host) 5:33:19 PM
@Readie - Nice! A great movie podcast! Mary & Dennis' conversations are always fun to listen to
Readie 5:33:20 PM
How do I sound? Loud enough?
Brian "D" for Donor 5:33:26 PM
I can't reach you!
Readie 5:33:52 PM
@Mary - looking forward to checking out MVM!
Jon "pledge.wprb.com" Solomon 5:34:03 PM
I would not recommend however that you talk louder into the mic. Your delivery is fine the volume of your "channel" is just a bit lower than the music. Hopefully that description makes sense!
Dennnisons 5:34:52 PM
Readie: send us recommendations! Someday we’ll get to Lizbot’s recommended Gas Food Lodging.
Lizbot (host) 5:35:05 PM
@Brian "D" for Donor - I was an OBSESSIVE Who fan from ages like 10-16 and this is still one of my favorites. I have like ads they did, all kinds of random stuff, including a Keith Moon don't smoke PSA haha
Lizbot (host) 5:35:37 PM
I love this cover so much
Lizbot (host) 5:36:20 PM
@Dennnisons - Gas Food Lodging will have to wait for if you ever delve into the 90s, and there are still so many good 80s movies to get to, but I would love to hear yr take on it! I adore Alison Anders
Lizbot (host) 5:37:11 PM
@Jon Solomon - okay...I am usually a Mixxx person, and using AH+Traktor+Skype today, so good to know. I will tweak it a little
Brian "D" for Donor 5:37:39 PM
The way they stop during the chorus is so cool
Readie 5:37:42 PM
Will do, Dennisons!

Lizbot (host) 5:38:55 PM
@Brian "D" for Donor - Yes! I love this b-side collection. Saw Shonen Knife a few times over the years and they are always dance-party-inducing!
Lizbot (host) 5:40:23 PM
@Andrew who donates things - I love that! Still makes me jump up & down! My 14 year-old daughter loves SK's cover of Top of the World too!

Brian "D" for Donor 5:43:37 PM
Good 33 & 1/3 book on TMBGs
Mary Jones 5:44:06 PM
Still wonder if I got covid in January 2020 from going to a TMBG show in NYC.
Lizbot (host) 5:44:10 PM
Thanks Mary & Dennis!
Mary Jones 5:44:47 PM
@Lizbot Sure! Absolutely!
Lizbot (host) 5:45:02 PM
@Mary - yikes...yeah, I took my 80 year-old dad to a packed Chieftains concert in the first days of March 2020 before reality sunk in! Thankfully none of us got sick
Brian "D" for Donor 5:45:37 PM
What's on that pizza?give it to me!
Readie 5:46:05 PM
Wow- March was when lockdown happened...
Mary Jones 5:46:45 PM
After the show, I was sick with a fever and bad congestion for a few days, and had a cough for months. But who knows? I always get a flu shot, but it could've been flu, nothing's foolproof.

Readie 6:07:55 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:15:32 PM
@Ossy - It was so nice! Did you go? You'd love it! Intersection of Japanese traditional culture and cos-players. Everyone having a great time

Have fun!
Lizbot (host) 6:21:41 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:22:04 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:22:23 PM
@Addie - You'll have to coordinate a Philly visit for mid-april some year!
Lizbot (host) 6:24:49 PM
@DSM - haha, I had this intense love of Ren & Stimpy briefly and then I tried to rewatch it years later and couldn't get into it. I think it hits hard at just the right age. It's funny rewatching some of those shows and movies with my kid and realizing the double entendres!

Lizbot (host) 6:27:45 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:35:43 PM
@DSM - I love Tom in John Lurie's absurdist Fishing with John show, but that episode ruined their friendship for many years!
Readie 6:36:11 PM
Lizbot (host) 6:36:41 PM
I'd like a pledge every time the family stone sings BOOM!
Lizbot (host) 6:36:54 PM
It's like a drinking game, only it's a pledging game
DonatingSupportingMember 🫡 6:38:07 PM
It did?! Oh wow, I thought it was all an act to some degree. Grumpy bois lol. They had great chemistry in Down By Law too
Lizbot (host) 6:39:51 PM
@DSM - haha, apparently John Lurie really pissed off Waits- I ate up the Criterion commentary track back when that first was released on DVD a million years ago. Best show ever!
Ossy 6:40:10 PM
Liz -Loads of fun activities always happen in the sound of Philadelphia, like Roots Picnic. I was there in 2008 for some John Legend concert!
Lizbot (host) 6:47:27 PM
@DSM - yes! I wanna show my daughter Down By Law soon! Love Benigni in that as well! and his real-life wife!
Readie 6:47:32 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:52:23 PM

Rob from MaryDonationland 6:54:54 PM
@Lizbot, I have "Mission Accomplished ... But the Beat Goes On" (live album) on vinyl that I kind of accidentally acquired in the 90s and I like the live version of Top Of The Pops that's on it.
Lee Chandler 6:56:06 PM
Loving the cohosting! Add to the fun & enthusiasm in the chat,, I totally feel like this crew would have fit with how I imagined sleepovers should have been like as a kid.
Lizbot (host) 6:56:13 PM
@Rob from Maryland - I have to give that version a listen!
Lizbot (host) 6:57:22 PM
@Lee Chandler - Thank you! haha, yeah I always loved the IDEA of sleepovers as a kid, but they almost always ended in DRAMA!
Lizbot (host) 6:58:50 PM

Readie 7:14:28 PM
Is the Windham Hotel still there?
Readie 7:15:28 PM
Lizbot (host) 7:15:34 PM
@Readie - Dunno! A LOT has changed because they dozed over that huge estate that had the asbestos king's mansion on it and built a huge development

Lizbot (host) 7:17:05 PM

Rob from MaryDonationland 7:18:26 PM
Omg this is the second time this month I've heard this Sparks song! The other time was on a another station. I haven't otherwise heard it since I last played my copy of this album. Thanks Lizbot, you're the best!!!!!!!
Readie 7:18:31 PM
DonatingSupportingMember 🫡 7:18:41 PM
I did initially mistake the opening chords of Elevation for The Cardigans "Love Fool" LOL
Andrew Gary's Got a Donor 7:21:10 PM

Lizbot (host) 7:24:21 PM
@Brian Doner Kebab - I actually DID consider playing some or all of Fingertips, which I wouldve had to have sung along to!
Lizbot (host) 7:24:43 PM
@Brian D for Donor - also, probably not getting to Gene & Dean but We'll see!
Readie 7:24:52 PM
Lizbot (host) 7:25:15 PM
@Readie - nope! I'll play air-sax instead, so you have to use your imagination!
Readie 7:25:33 PM
lol - it was worth a try.....
Andrew Gary's Got a Donor 7:26:01 PM

Readie 7:32:01 PM
YEAH let your freak flag FLY!!!! @LIZBOT!
Lizbot (host) 7:32:32 PM
@TAndy - gonna have to get myself some doner after this show! I was jealous of my friend Eva's photos from Greece last weekend for Greek Easter (she's married to a greek guy and was visiting her in-laws) of all the delicious doner and other goodies!
Readie 7:33:04 PM
what's doner?
Carlos Ramone. 7:33:35 PM
What’s a Grecian urn?
Lizbot (host) 7:33:46 PM
@Readie - doner kebab - roasted meat on a stick!
Readie 7:33:56 PM
about 103.3 bucks an hour
Readie 7:34:14 PM
@Lizbot- now I am REALLY hungry!
Lizbot (host) 7:35:10 PM
@Carlos Ramone - Don't make me recite Ode to a Grecian Urn over the air for pledges! Instead try Ode to our "It Burns" enamel pin, one of this year's swag items! (sorry, couldn't resist)
Readie 7:35:57 PM
😂 🤣
Readie 7:36:32 PM
one more!!
Brian "D" for Donor 7:37:43 PM

Racy risqué
Lizbot (host) 7:47:20 PM
@Rob from MaryDonationland - Thinking of how all the cab drivers listening to soccer games in Madrid used to yell GOOOOOOAL! while driving me around
Lizbot (host) 7:48:00 PM
@Brian D - That one was risqué and this one is SNEAKY/lurking AND risqué, hence the slide whistle!
Lizbot (host) 7:49:12 PM
Thanks for listening and keeping us company in the chat week after week, everyone!
Readie 7:49:35 PM

Brian "D" for Donor 7:53:37 PM
