TAndy 9:26:46 PM
Hey Commie Francis, any food themed shows in the pipeline? Your autocorrect just gave me a thought
Commie Francis ☭ 9:27:54 PM
Before I learned it's better to do narrower topics I did a theme of just food, I don't have anything specific planned about food
yoni from kdu 9:28:36 PM
TAndy 9:28:53 PM
Gotcha. I remembered that in french cooking there's a position called "chef commis" aka junior chef. Commis Chef. Commis Francis. Sounded better in my head lol
Dana K (host) 9:28:55 PM
Comer Francis
TAndy 9:29:49 PM
I was watching an old Gordon Ramsay video where he demoted some of his chefs for not being able to keep up, and I mistook him calling them "commis" as "commies" 😅
Teresa Peacock 9:32:25 PM
Hi everyone! LOVE this best of show -- I'm hearing so much that is new and exciting to my ears. This Patio song is so singular in the push-and-pull of the lyric flow: sometimes it sounds like an extra beat was added surreptitiously or that there was an almost imperceptible slow-down in a phrase. Really striking.
Dana K (host) 9:33:06 PM
Hi Teresa! So glad you're enjoying that. I've listened to that Patio record so many times over and am still discovering new little things I love about it
Commie Francis ☭ 9:36:37 PM
Haha tandy. That joke definitely works better in text
Jim Otter 9:43:01 PM
that Wet Dip is great
Commie Francis ☭ 9:45:21 PM
