Are Coo Coo Clocks a good invention? discuss
Brian D (Donor) 3:13:36 PM
Copland. Nice.
Dylan (host) 3:14:20 PM
It's been along time since we did a long play classical episode
Dylan (host) 3:17:08 PM
Classical Music Mixers be like: We should mix this beginning at 48 dB, then the next part at 1 dB, just destroy Dylan's Eardrums

Cuckoo clocks are a fine bit of engineering, and typical of Germans to want to keep track of time.
Dylan (host) 3:18:40 PM
I feel like German's would like being woken up every hour by a mechanical bird
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 3:19:06 PM
I own one, but halted its operation since I don't want to hear the tiktiktiktik and intrusive cuckoo sound day and night.
Teresa Peacock 3:19:46 PM
Hi all! Pentangle recorded a much protracted version of 'The Coo-Coo Bird' with at least 3 verses. I mined that version for its tragic story of lost love when performing it with my friend Peter Blanchette (playing accompaniment on his archguitar) in a concert in March 2012. It was a lot of fun, and I'd like to believe there wasn't a dry eye left in the house, but that would be an exaggeration certainly! Also -- Coo-coo clocks = a novelty item that loses its charm quickly = Wegman's rooster
Dylan (host) 3:21:17 PM
Herzog Voice: The incessant cuckooing reminds all Germans of One Simple Truth, when you are fast asleep, it is only a pale image of the only peace left for humanity in the wasteland of decadence and fornication surrounding us. Death."
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 3:21:45 PM
Yes, that clock was maybe a fine item in the 18th century, but obsolete now.
Dylan (host) 3:22:29 PM
Dave what show do you think you're listening to? I'm all about obsolescence and inconvenience.
Teresa Peacock 3:22:48 PM
Ach, Werner!
Dylan (host) 3:23:10 PM
Teresa, I've never listened to that version. I really love the Clarence version for it's atmosphere.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 3:24:04 PM
Is this not Weird Old Deutschland?
Dylan (host) 3:25:09 PM
In WOD, the whole show would basically be the same, except for the mike breaks being much more existential.
Dylan (host) 3:25:30 PM
Somebody get Werner Herzog to come on the show
Teresa Peacock 3:31:04 PM
Is it coincidence or intentional that this is the second coo-coo reference I've heard today? Krista played 'Summer is a-Cumin' in' on her show this morning!
Dylan (host) 3:32:05 PM
Total coincidence

Teresa Peacock 3:47:42 PM
I'll trade you for a tiny porcelain dog that 'smokes' a cigarette!
Dylan (host) 3:48:03 PM
Can the dog get cancer?
Teresa Peacock 3:49:45 PM
It's over a century old, I believe. So no. And he just 'pretends' to smoke a cigarette but smoke emanates from the teeny-tiny make-believe cigarette. I still don't get how it actually works...
Dylan (host) 3:50:47 PM
People back then were better at making fire hazards.
Zapshifter X 3:50:54 PM
Have other people seen this smoke?
Dylan (host) 3:51:34 PM
Wait, is it an ashtray?
Teresa Peacock 3:52:45 PM
@Zapshifter X -- I think so ... it belonged to my grandfather who got it sometime around the WWI era. Sadly, he isn't around anymore to back me up.
Dylan (host) 3:53:13 PM
Saw one on eBay
Teresa Peacock 3:53:16 PM
No. It's a free-standing tiny dog that smokes. It looks like a dachshund.
Dylan (host) 3:54:27 PM
Does it plug into anything?
Teresa Peacock 3:55:12 PM
Amazing what you can find on eBay! Last week, I mentioned this old mansion in Cummington, MA where I spent 2 summers in 1969 and 1970. The mansion was also being sold on eBay! So freaky!!!

I like this playlist
Teresa Peacock 3:58:14 PM
No or I wouldn't have been allowed to man-handle it without supervision... @Mr. M -- Oh, it was just a postcard?! Thanks for the correction. I was so bowled over by seeing it again on that eBay website that I didn't even see what was being sold.
Teresa Peacock 3:59:55 PM
@Mr. M -- I'm enjoying it (the playlist) so much too!
Zapshifter X 4:00:28 PM
Yeah good stuff today.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:00:41 PM
Teresa Peacock, I wasn’t sure if you were making a funny or if I was BoNkErS. Turns out I’m bOnKeRs and it was a postcard after all. 🥸 I wanna see video of that performance you mentioned!

Yeah i thought it was a postcard. Ha. Price tag of 8 bucks that is a steal
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:03:10 PM
“vibe” RIP 🪦
Teresa Peacock 4:04:42 PM
It would have had to be in some state of disrepair to only cost $8. Haha. Maybe on Craigslist...
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:05:06 PM
don’t ever change, DylanFox
Dylan (host) 4:06:05 PM
I try and fail to change everyday. If it was my choice I would be Pippi Longstocking, who is a secret greek god
Chef Emeril "WPR-BAM!!!" Lagasse 4:07:50 PM
re: wprb gifts, the wprb drone delivered my wprb brand salt and pepper shakers. they were a secret gift that you can only get if you donate and you're a celebrity chef
Dylan (host) 4:08:34 PM
Wait is Chef Lagasse a celebrity name?
Dylan (host) 4:09:11 PM
Oh he is
Zapshifter X 4:09:13 PM
Poor guy selling this postcard is probably getting so excited about potential biding war that's NOT going to happen.

AND living alone successfully at age 8

The first book is half evading the police and half beating up grownups
Dylan (host) 4:14:46 PM
I just learned about this today
Dylan (host) 4:15:22 PM
Previously I believed Pippi Longstocking was a cat who was somehow involved in the attack on pearl harbor
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:15:55 PM
and I’m weird
Teresa Peacock 4:16:42 PM
Hahahaha! Reading those books when I was that age, the prospect of living all alone was so thrilling, exhilarating, and terrifying! I'm a fan, obviously

Apparently the girl from Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is based on Pippi

Can I request songs from the 1969 disney movie The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes?
Dylan (host) 4:23:48 PM
Maybe next week
Dylan (host) 4:24:49 PM
Like we have a theme going
Teresa Peacock 4:24:54 PM
@Chef Emeril -- Yes! Astrid Lingren's 'War Diaries: 1939-1945" are a fascinating read! Her perspective as a Swede who worked for gathering intelligence was truly eye-opening for me. Also -- Lindgren as twice over homewrecker (both her husbands married her as a result of their affairs with her while married to someone else). Scandalous!
Dylan (host) 4:25:23 PM
Never marry someone you're having an affair with
Teresa Peacock 4:26:11 PM
Definitely sound advice!
