"Gradus Ad Parnassum" = "steps to Parnassus", Parnassus being the loftiest part of a mountain range in central Greece, a few kilometres north of Delphi, of which the two summits, in Classical times, were called Tithorea and Lycoreia. In Greek mythology, one of the peaks was sacred to Apollo and the nine Muses, the inspiring deities of the arts, and the other to Dionysus. The phrase has often been used to refer to various books of instruction, or guides, in which gradual progress in literature, language instruction, music, or the arts in general, is sought.

Lizbot (host) 5:20:34 PM
@Brian D - I hope Petra tours again some time in the near future. Her Who Sell Out show at World Cafe was so good. I first heard her Imaginaryland album over 20 years ago, but as good as her original a cappella compositions are, I like her covers even more
DSM 5:20:45 PM
banging my head to this one!
Lizbot (host) 5:21:23 PM
Hi DSM! Glad to hear that! I for some reason am imagining my pet birds at home bopping to this one too. I think they'd like it!
DSM 5:22:18 PM
Oh yeah! I can easily imagine some birds bopping to this
Lizbot (host) 5:22:30 PM
@Mary Jones - No MVM this week, right? I gotta catch up on the Arthurian patreon casts! I don't want to listen to the Lair of the White Worm episode yet since I haven't seen it and definitely want to, hopefully this month!
Lizbot (host) 5:23:41 PM
@DSM - My birds sometimes have surprising taste. I've caught them singing along to Meredith Monk! But they also like a bouncy beat
Lizbot (host) 5:24:02 PM
@Stephen Bluhm - Going back up to NYC in late October.
Mary Jones 5:24:34 PM
@Lizbot yeah, we ran into some issues and had ti reschedule our guest for next week, so we had ti skip a week, unfortunately.
Mary Jones 5:25:34 PM
I hope you enjoy Lair, I found it a lot of fun and it’s worth seeing just for a young Peter Capaldi, and hopefully the episode is good to.
Lizbot (host) 5:26:18 PM
@Mary Jones - Last MVM I llistened to was 2010: The Year We Make Contact, and I haven't seen that either, but I am not sure I will...maybe after horror movie season. I don't remember if you mention this spielberg in that episode or not,or if I've recommended to you before, but I love DUEL, which was sort of made for TV, but I consider his first movie
Mary Jones 5:26:30 PM
We’re also gearing up to take on my most loathed Arthurian movie, too—2004’s “King Arthur”.
Lizbot (host) 5:27:20 PM
@Mary Jones - Oh booooy. Yeah, that looked baaad.
Mary Jones 5:27:26 PM
@Lizbot I really need to see Duel, Dennis likes it too.
Lizbot (host) 5:28:22 PM
@Mary Jones - I really DON'T like Clive Owen.
Mary Jones 5:29:21 PM
@Lizbot well you definitely won’t like him as King Arthur! It’s not just a bad movie, it’s not just a poor attempt at a “historical” Arthur, it’s also a big dumb slog.
Lizbot (host) 5:29:36 PM
@Mary Jones - Yeah, I have been trying to get Hattie to watch Duel but a car movie is a hard sell for her. It's honestly so good. I still reference it during certain instances when I experience road rage from trucks
Lizbot (host) 5:30:03 PM
@Mary Jones - And even though it's a 70s movie, MVM has been dipping into adjacent decades anyway!
Mary Jones 5:31:13 PM
@Lizbot yeah, I feel like Spielberg is so foundational to 1980s cinema that I don’t feel bad going back to his 1970s movies at all.
DSM 5:33:10 PM
+1 for Duel, that movie is great
Lizbot (host) 5:34:24 PM
@DSM - Yes!
Lizbot (host) 5:36:33 PM
@Mary Jones - Exactly! There are some clear threads throughout Duel that extend into JAWS and into his 80s work as well
Mary Jones 5:36:59 PM
@Lizbot ooo, nice, that’ll be fun to work with
Lizbot (host) 5:38:19 PM
@Mary Jones - There is a fun tidbit of trivia re just a sound used in Duel and I really wanna tell you, but it is too much of a spoiler

@Lizbot I remember watching Duel on TV as a teen with my parents, and we were ALL freaked out...it's so good! And it takes a lot to impress my thespian parents!
Lizbot (host) 5:39:30 PM

Hi Readie!

Lizbot (host) 5:40:16 PM
@Readie - haha, amazing! What a great night of family TV viewing!
DJ Readie 5:41:01 PM
Yes, Lizbot, it was, and the fact that it is still a vivid memory speaks volumes!
DJ Readie 5:41:48 PM
I have a feeling Hattie would appreciate the psychological aspect of the film...
Lizbot (host) 5:42:11 PM
I feel like this song would not be out of place in the original "Wickerman" alongside songs by Magnet about corn rigs & barley. Rabbits are, after all, important to the film
Rob from Maryland 5:42:31 PM
@Lizbot, I'm back
Lizbot (host) 5:42:37 PM
And this song's handclapping and frantic chanting calls to mind rituals
Lizbot (host) 5:42:50 PM

Lizbot (host) 5:43:02 PM
Welcome back, Rob!
Mary Jones 5:44:18 PM
There’s never a bad time to watch The Wicker Man
Lizbot (host) 5:45:21 PM
@Readie - I think Hattie would like it, but the car chase aspect is a hard sell. It's on my Hattie Movie List, along with Close Encounters, which she still hasn't seen, and neither has George, for that matter! He's only seen the end
Lizbot (host) 5:45:52 PM

@Lizbot- YIKES - Deliverance with the 'rents! I can recall a cringe-worthy moment; I would sometimes get totally embarrassed watching certain content with my parents...aargh...!
Lizbot (host) 5:54:31 PM
@Joe Moore - Gonna check that out when I get home! THanks!
Lizbot (host) 5:56:55 PM
@Readie - My parents showed us anything and everything, and I'm grateful to them for that, but yeah, there were SOME uncomfortable and unfortunate moments! THAT was supposed to be a fun New Year's Eve family movie night to get us to stay awake 'til midnight so we could bang pots & pans on our block at 12!
Lizbot (host) 5:57:09 PM
@Readie - And I was maybe 8
Lizbot (host) 5:57:46 PM
@Readie - But poor George was shown Eraserhead by his step-dad when he was around 7!!
Mary Jones 5:58:01 PM
@Lizbot Deliverance at 8? Oh Noooo
Lizbot (host) 5:59:41 PM
@Mary Jones - yeeeeahhhh, it was NOT the best choice. I think not much thought went into it beyond my parents liking Midnight Cowboy and this also had John Voight. That, and my dad had just gotten James Dickey to sign one of his books at some reading, so it was on his mind
Lizbot (host) 6:00:43 PM
@Mary Jones - They also showed me Midnight Cowboy, but not until much later
DJ Readie 6:01:50 PM
@Lizbot - hmmm - early influences by family - that explains a lot actually...in a GOOD way!!
Lizbot (host) 6:05:14 PM
@Readie - yes! I definitely benefited from my parents' lax policy on movies and shows! They also took my to John Cage's Holy Rolyover Circus with Yoko Ono and there were naked cellists and other cool stuff that I remember vividly!
DJ Readie 6:06:59 PM
@Lizbot YES! - John Cage & Yoko - that must have been epic...
DJ Readie 6:08:32 PM
I seem to recall a naked cellist in some Monty Python and maybe Magical Mystery Tour? IDK -
Lizbot (host) 6:10:14 PM

@Readie - Pretty out there stuff for the PMA!
DJ Readie 6:12:00 PM
At the PMA! That's insane - I love it! Can you remember what year @Lizbot?
Lizbot (host) 6:12:24 PM
@Readie - And they also, as part of the same exhibit, had Thoreau's original "Walden" journal, which I kid you not, had little cartoon squirrel doodles in the margins!
Lizbot (host) 6:12:57 PM
@Readie - Some time in the 80s...mid-80s I'd say
DJ Readie 6:13:19 PM
Oh man, what a treasure!!! Walden!!
DJ Readie 6:13:26 PM
squirrels!

Commie Francis ☭ 6:25:39 PM
What I always thought it was a fruit case
Lizbot (host) 6:26:12 PM
@Readie - I mean I think my mom deserves the credit cuz she was always looking for art events to take us to, whereas my dad was more of a folkie hermit who prefers to hide out with his records at home
Lizbot (host) 6:27:31 PM
@Commie Francis - I couldn't tell wth PG was saying in that line. For at least a decade I thought he was saying "open up your fruit cakes"
DJ Readie 6:28:41 PM
@Lizbot - My parents were both folkies and social progressives, and exposed us to theatre and poetry as well as music - we were fortunate!!
Lizbot (host) 6:29:18 PM
@Commie Francis - Yeah, I concur it's worth watching as its own thing, but it's annoying that it's a remake and I gotta specify "ORIGINAL" every time i mention Wickerman! Also mad that too many kids in Hattie's generation saw the crummy Willy Wonka remake instead of or at least before the original
Lizbot (host) 6:30:14 PM
@Readie - My dad had a lot of folk and Irish trad, but also a records of poets reading their work and a lot of weird early Nonesuch Records stuff and serialist composers and lesser known musicals
Teresa P 6:30:24 PM
Hello to all my DoublePlusBetters! Speaking of films that you see when you're too young for the content, I had a weird epiphany last week: Have you ever heard of the 1976 film starring Jodie Foster 'The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane'? It suddenly occurred to me that the premise for that film and the TV show 'ICarly' are basically identical. Who's with me?
Lizbot (host) 6:32:05 PM
Hi Teresa P! oh wow, I heard of that movie but have never seen it. Never seen iCarly either, but this bears further investigation!
DJ Readie 6:36:31 PM
@Teresa P- I just looked at the synopsis and I think I did see that film....never saw iCarly though...and yes - worth investigation!
Teresa P 6:39:15 PM
The Jodie Foster movie is about a young teen/tween whose widowed father has accepted work somewhere far away from where they live. I think the fact that the mother seems to have died before the film begins is one of the rationale why the father doesn't take his daughter with him (you know -- in the name of "consistency" for the grieving daughter). Of course, Foster's character is precocious in every way so the dad thinks she's up to the challenge. But pervert neighbor is the only one who knows
Teresa P 6:42:04 PM
that she lives alone. So up until the predatory neighbor, the plot set-up is identical except for one factor: ICarly has an older brother who becomes a secret surrogate guardian to her. Meanwhile, Jodie Foster has to survive entirely relying on her own wits (and the cyanide powder in the cupboard next to the tea).
DJ Readie 6:42:24 PM
...and Martin Sheen is in it - one of my fave actors of all time...
Teresa P 6:43:38 PM
Since it came out in 1976, I couldn't have been older than 9 or 10 when I saw it. @Readie -- Yes, Martin Sheen is super super creepy in it! He's great!
Lizbot (host) 6:44:49 PM
@Teresa P - I was just thinking about Jodie Foster earlier today and the whole cool tomboy 70s aesthetic she was part of. A photo from some Facebook group popped up of her with Jamie Lee Curtis and Gillian Anderson in the 90s and I thought they'd probably all hit it off
Teresa P 6:47:17 PM
Agreed! I SO WISHED that Jodie Foster was my best friend back then! We're both only children and although I'm not as preternaturally intelligent and articulate as Jodie, I thought maybe it'd rub off...
Teresa P 6:48:14 PM
Did I say cyanide? I meant arsenic!
Roffle 6:50:56 PM
OMG Jodie Foster was the perfect Pretty Poison when she was a kiddo. Pretty Poison Is also a wicked older movie.
Roffle 6:51:13 PM
Oh yeah, Hi!
Lizbot (host) 6:51:21 PM
@Teresa P - I know! She seemed/seems so badass!
Lizbot (host) 6:51:30 PM
@Teresa P - I was recently recommended Arsenic & Old Lace as an example of an excellent farcical movie, speaking of arsenic!
Lizbot (host) 6:51:34 PM
Hello Roffle!
Roffle 6:52:40 PM
She can articulates underlying evil in such a nice way. evil
Lizbot (host) 6:52:51 PM
@Roffle - I have to check out Pretty Poison too! I don't know the premise, but something reminded me yesterday of Flowers In the Attic, speaking of sad neglected kid books/movies!
Roffle 6:54:04 PM
Pretty poison I saw as a teenager and it left quite an impression. Kids gone bad movie. Loved it.
Lizbot (host) 6:56:05 PM
@Roffle - I just looked it up - Tuesday Weld! Loved her in Lord Love a Duck!
Lizbot (host) 6:56:20 PM
@Roffle - And I see there was a Philly band named Pretty Poison!
Roffle 6:57:00 PM
Sweet!
Lizbot (host) 6:57:43 PM
@Roffle - What a roundabout way to arrive at a band I hadn't heard of before! I should check them out
Roffle 6:57:54 PM
I totally forgot that Anthony Perkins was in it as well. Creepy overtones from the get go... But cool.
Number 6 6:58:05 PM
I'm pretty sure I had that Pretty Poison song on 45.
Roffle 6:59:21 PM
Yea know, I would definitely go to see a band called pretty poison without too much hesitation. Heya 6!
Number 6 7:00:00 PM
Hi again, Roffle!
Lizbot (host) 7:00:25 PM
@Roffle - Nice! He's great, but apparently struggled with being typecast after Psycho. I rented from the 19th & vine branch of the Philly Public Library the VHS of "The Trial" starring Anrthony Perkins in my 20s. Not an easy book to adapt to film and get across the frustration and mindset of K, but he did a good job
Roffle 7:00:27 PM
Gotta not stop meeting like this!
Lizbot (host) 7:01:56 PM
@Number 6 - Nice! Still have it?
Lizbot (host) 7:02:13 PM
@Number 6 - What was it like? Gonna check this out tonight

Possibly somewhere in all my junque.

They were pretty good for the few songs that they released.
Lizbot (host) 7:03:28 PM
@Number 6 - Raking through the junque in my house the other day turned up my high school English class papers!

@Lizbot, Started looking for a USB cable in some boxes and opened a can of worms full of forgotten stuff. ARGH!!!
Roffle 7:05:59 PM
Totally relate
Lizbot (host) 7:07:29 PM
@Number 6 - Big hair! I see one of their members was in Sex In Violents, a band that was never much on my radar, but I remember the name from way way back
Rob from Maryland 7:07:53 PM
Final Day!
Lizbot (host) 7:08:31 PM
@Rob from Maryland - Love YMO and love Galaxie 500's cover of this song, which is decidedly longer
Rob from Maryland 7:09:06 PM
@Lizbot, this song always makes me cry. I'm not sure I want to hear a cover
Lizbot (host) 7:09:31 PM
@Rob - Fair enough! The original is best by far anyway!
Jason Ferraro 7:12:25 PM
Love this show! Shameless plug: my new music project Head Shop Boys is playing at Tin Can tomorrow night and we're covering Young Marble Giants. Fans of Acid House, Sisters of Mercy, The Yaz, etc should check it out. Xoxo
Lizbot (host) 7:18:23 PM
Hi Jason!
Charles Vrana 7:18:37 PM
@Lizbot great show today ;-)
Roffle 7:18:37 PM
Hey, they serve beer there. As all venues should... :)
Lizbot (host) 7:19:42 PM
Hi Charles Vrana, thanks! And thanks for tuning in!
Teresa P 7:19:50 PM
Another 2 films with many plot/situation similarities: 'Diabolique' (either original or remake) and Bette Davis vehicle 'Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte... ' (1951)
Lizbot (host) 7:20:35 PM
@Jason Ferraro - Thanks! haha, Head Shop Boys is a great name! Sounds like a good show! Love YMG, Yaz, et.al.
Jason Ferraro 7:21:45 PM
We're covering Ween, Eno, And YMG in the style of OMD/YAZ/Lords of Acid lol. Gonna be spooky and fun. Very Double Plus good
Teresa P 7:21:51 PM
I like both those films, but I'm especially partial to 'Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte... ' is one of my all-time favorite psychological thrillers and Bette Davis is AMAZING in it!
Roffle 7:22:29 PM
@Teresa P, I can get so lost in that kind of stuff. I like the Grindhouse website that streems tons of older flicks. Old weird Peter Jackson on a budget stuff. Can's get enough of things gone by sometimes.
Lizbot (host) 7:23:44 PM
@Teresa P - I love Bette and have a copy of Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte. I read it originally was meant to reunite Bette Davis and Joan Crawford on screen after the success of "psycho-biddy" movie Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, but Joan had some issues with the production and walked out
Lizbot (host) 7:24:14 PM
@Jason Ferraro - oh wow, I love all those bands!
Teresa P 7:25:22 PM
@Roffle -- Same here! <3 @Lizbot -- Wow! I had no idea! Olivia de Haviland (sp?) must have taken over the Joan Crawford role then, yes?
Lizbot (host) 7:25:57 PM
@Roffle / Teresa P - I love my Criterion streamer for the stuff I don't have on DVD! THank goodness for it because I was crushed when Fandor went under
Lizbot (host) 7:26:43 PM
@Teresa P - HUsh Hush & Diabolique double-feature!! Hattie hasn't seen either, so I might make this happen!
Roffle 7:27:21 PM
Olivia de Haviland did "Dialing for Dollars" during old movies on a NY channel, like PIX or something when I was a todler. lol
Teresa P 7:29:03 PM
@Lizbot -- Hush Hush and Diabolique would make a fabulous double-feature! No pressure, but I am hereby invested in you making that happen! <3 <3 <3 Hattie would love them too -- she has such amazingly great taste!
Roffle 7:29:19 PM
@Lizbot, I simply love Criterion and will not feel too put out by the subtitles like I too often do.
Lizbot (host) 7:30:33 PM
@Roffle - ha! Oh wow! That's crazy! What a good sport of her! I miss watching Turner Classic Movies with my grandmom\
Roffle 7:30:53 PM
BTW, got your BandCamp memo Teresa. lol Almost forgot...
Roffle 7:31:42 PM
Turner Classic Movies was a smart move by Turner for sure.
Lizbot (host) 7:31:51 PM
@Roffle - I never minded subtitles on foreign films, but never turned on closed-captions on everything else, but now I need it! I read a lot of newer movies and TV shows straight-up have more garbled audio due to cuts in sound engineering in post-production!
Lizbot (host) 7:32:44 PM
@Teresa P - haha, all the more reason to make it happen! I will report back to you Hattie's reactions to these films!
Roffle 7:32:59 PM
I TOTALLY DO THAT TOO! Dunno why, but sometimes ya just gotta!
Lizbot (host) 7:34:24 PM
@Roffle - My mother-in-law always has closed-captioning on at her house and it always used to bug me until a few years ago, when suddenly i need it too! I chalked it up to age until I read an article about screwy sound on streaming channels, so i dunno!
Roffle 7:34:33 PM
Victor Wooten!!! Bless you Lizbot!
Lizbot (host) 7:35:48 PM
@Roffle - TCM was great, and commercial-free! Of course Ted raised some hackles for colorizing some movies
Lizbot (host) 7:36:04 PM
@Roffle - Love me some Wooten!
Roffle 7:36:56 PM
Yuppers Lizbot. Those level go hard red or they don't seem to move the needle. Not really standardized.
Roffle 7:38:54 PM
Commercial-free! That was cable coolness back then. THe colorization was less sound of an idea, but no one had to watch them either, so meh...
Lizbot (host) 7:40:35 PM
@Roffle - Yeah, the black and white looked better, but I was just happy to have those movies on hand!
George Korein 7:40:47 PM
That Wooten song blew my mind when I was about 15
Roffle 7:40:54 PM
Love this arc of music going on btw.
Lizbot (host) 7:41:01 PM
@George Korein - DIdn't you see him perform live around then?
Lizbot (host) 7:41:05 PM
@Roffle - thanks!
Roffle 7:42:29 PM
Hi George! My favorite 6 billion dollar man, when you account for inflation, etc...
Roffle 7:42:55 PM
Hope you are well.
Lizbot (host) 7:44:22 PM
@Roffle - TCM, Channel Z, so much good programming for relatively cheap! I was right to get my favorites on VHS and later DVD though because so many movies are so hard to find digitally on streamers or elsewhere anymore. Such a mess, but a predictable mess.
George Korein 7:44:30 PM
I am, thanks Roffle! Yes Liz, I saw Wooten with the Flecktones and then with his brothers
Lizbot (host) 7:45:23 PM
@George Korein - I think Béla Fleck played Philly recently
George Korein 7:45:40 PM
The Wootens are just came to Philly, I missed them
Lizbot (host) 7:45:46 PM
@Roffle - George is becoming bionic, what with his metal hip and his endless training
George Korein 7:46:01 PM
I saw Fleck open for Shakti
Roffle 7:48:12 PM
Taping was golden then. So much good stuff people will pay through the teeth for now. Bela Fleck got me into Wooten. Just genius coming together. George can get a gig with the X-Men at the end of the day. :)
George Korein 7:48:13 PM
I want my next record to have a bionic by
George Korein 7:48:36 PM
I want my next record to have a bionic vibe
George Korein 7:49:11 PM
Submit to Repetition
Lizbot (host) 7:49:14 PM
@George - oh right, in May. with Bill Frisell?
Lizbot (host) 7:49:26 PM
@George - Submit to the skipping repetition
Roffle 7:50:02 PM
Choose the next implant carefully George. The fate of the world might rest on your decisions.
Roffle 7:50:43 PM
A musical implant might have it's advantages.
George Korein 7:51:19 PM
You know, circa 2003 I suggested to Behold the Arctopus the song title “the secret in my bionic hip compartment”
Lizbot (host) 7:51:44 PM
@Roffle - Trying to imagine to advantages of one bionic hip while the other is a normal bone hip
Roffle 7:52:06 PM
A nefarious implant might arouse the aier of some dude living in a volcano.
Lizbot (host) 7:52:38 PM

Rob from Maryland 7:53:07 PM
We enjoyed the show, Lizbot!
Lizbot (host) 7:53:14 PM
@Teresa P - ha!
DSM 7:53:27 PM
Thanks Lizbot!
Roffle 7:53:32 PM
WTF? Since when does Rick Wakeman sound like Sparks?!?
Lizbot (host) 7:53:46 PM
Thanks, Rob from Maryland! I have a new parakeet obsession: the eastern rosella!
Lizbot (host) 7:54:19 PM
@ROffle - haha! And simultaneously he was out there playing piano for Cat Stevens!
Roffle 7:54:23 PM
Barkus? LOL'
Lizbot (host) 7:54:30 PM
Thanks for listening and hanging out, DSM!
George Korein 7:54:30 PM
Liz, three words: bionic hip bump

Teresa P 7:58:30 PM
Great show as always, Lizbot! Thank you! I can't wait for the return of Killbot to the PRB airwaves!
Roffle 7:59:16 PM
I am gettin' the bunker ready. The candy is all you can eat without insulin on the porch. Ready for the Killbots!
DJ Readie 7:59:41 PM
Great time, Lizbot! Thx for the tunes!

See you next week, everyone!
DJ Readie 8:00:32 PM
Bye Roff!
Lizbot (host) 8:00:40 PM
@Roffle - I often wonder if all our candy is grabbed by one kid!
Roffle 8:00:41 PM
See you cool catz up the way...
Lizbot (host) 8:00:50 PM
Thanks, Teresa P!
Lizbot (host) 8:00:55 PM
Thanks Numbver 6!
Roffle 8:00:56 PM
Thanks Liz!
Roffle 8:02:04 PM
P.S. That kid is me.
Roffle 8:02:49 PM
That's why mine is open buffet.
Rob from Maryland 8:03:56 PM
@Lizbot, rosellas are the best
