Good Morning, folks!
Stevie P 10:03:23 AM
Top o' the marnin' to ya Pethie
Pethie (host) 10:04:52 AM
Glad to have you here, Stevie!
Stevie P 10:07:39 AM
i usually forget to tune in on tuesday morning
Pethie (host) 10:09:32 AM
Hoorah for remembering today!
Christine {¤_θ}° 10:16:42 AM
Good morning, DJ Pethie! 🌻Hey Stevie P. (aka "Beatnik Sluggo")
Pethie (host) 10:17:55 AM
Morning Christine!
Stevie P 10:19:07 AM
hey christine
John Pittman 10:25:46 AM
HI DJ Pethie! Just tuned in. Books!!
Pethie (host) 10:26:03 AM
yay! Hello, Dr. H
John Pittman 10:26:22 AM
Everybody: A Book About Freedom/Olivia Laing
Pethie (host) 10:28:25 AM
Oooh, I will look it up!
John Pittman 10:30:17 AM
Wilhelm Reich/Nina Simone/Kathy Acker/&c/health/sex/bodies - a+
Pethie (host) 10:31:56 AM
Ah, that's quite a mix of subjects
John Pittman 10:33:23 AM
Pethie (host) 10:34:37 AM
I remember trying to get into Reich AND Acker back in High School, when I was knee-deep in reading Re/Search magazines and books. But my brain wasn't ready
John Pittman 10:37:56 AM
Reich is a real mixed bag imho - I like late stage Bill, but mostly just for the weirdo/UFO factor. He was a pretty tragic figure at the end.
John Pittman 10:38:30 AM
I spent A week at Orgonon a few years back.
Pethie (host) 10:40:15 AM
"I still dream/of Orgonon"
John Pittman 10:42:32 AM
I wish we could post photos (of cloudbusters).
John Pittman 10:44:20 AM
this will have to do : https://flic.kr/p/UkLqq6
Pethie (host) 10:44:54 AM
Handsome machine.
John Pittman 10:48:32 AM
wild stuff!
Stevie P 10:57:36 AM
I gotta check out Wilhelm Reich. Thanks John.
John Pittman 10:58:22 AM
My pleasure!
Stevie P 11:01:02 AM
I'm trying to figure out how I made it so far in life without knowing about Reich, who is so right up my alley!
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:09:57 AM
@John Pittman, thanks for the tip about Olivia Laing's book. 📖 I know very little about Wilhelm Reich.
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:11:07 AM
Also, what is that machine in the photo?
Stevie P 11:11:29 AM
cloudbuster, as I am now blissfully aware
John Pittman 11:11:45 AM
@Christine {¤_θ}° - hope you like it *grits teeth*
Stevie P 11:13:00 AM
Anybody else here besides me planning to construct an Accumulator this weekend?
Pethie (host) 11:13:46 AM
Go for it, Stevie! And share your results next week with us all!
Stevie P 11:13:54 AM
An Orgone Accumulator, to put a finer point on it
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:14:04 AM
@Stevie P, I think that would just be you! Though I would be interested to hear what happens. Does it accumulate wealth?
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:15:16 AM
@John Pittman, I couldn't help but notice a cool touring bike on the Flickr. Is that yours?
Stevie P 11:15:18 AM
No, silly. It accumulates Orgone Energy, of course
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:15:40 AM
@Stevie P. Ohhhhhhh, OK.
Stevie P 11:16:16 AM
... and I just learned about Reich a few minutes ago!
John Pittman 11:17:43 AM
It probably is? I take pix of "cool bikes that aren't mine", but... Let me look.
John Pittman 11:19:43 AM
The bike with the orange and brown handlebar bag isn't mine - it was from a get-together at Cambridge Bikes in Cambridge MA.
John Pittman 11:20:26 AM
This one's mine, though. https://flic.kr/p/TW5Q6v
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:22:20 AM
A lovely touring bike!
Mark 11:24:42 AM
a little late to the show today so don’t know what inspired the reich discussion:)
David Shortell 11:25:55 AM
Did anybody see Robyn Hitchcock's May 1 instore appearance at Randy Now's Man Cave in Bordentown?
Mark 11:26:10 AM
the story of how sutherland came to portray him in the KB video is pretty interesting
Stevie P 11:26:30 AM
Mark, we started talking about books we're reading
kentman 11:27:21 AM
this new Tindersticks is sublime
Pethie (host) 11:28:07 AM
glad you liked it, kentman! I'm looking forward to hearing more from the new album.
John Pittman 11:28:13 AM
Yes - my fault - I'm reading Everybody/Olivia Laing - Reich is a focus.
Mark 11:28:29 AM
ha so there’s a power clashing book club forming :)
Stevie P 11:29:04 AM
there is now :)
John Pittman 11:29:46 AM
@Christine {¤_θ}° thank you!
Pethie (host) 11:29:58 AM
I'm here for it. I'm going to recommend Morvern Callar, which I just finished yesterday. Bleak and strange, with a great soundtrack through the pages.
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:30:14 AM
Powerclashing Book Club...I like it 📚
Pethie (host) 11:31:26 AM
I post the books I'm reading on goodreads (elspeth abel slater), but also on my IG: pethie
John Pittman 11:32:31 AM
Pethie, - added to the TBR list!
Pethie (host) 11:34:58 AM
I look forward to hearing what you think of it. It reminded me of a book I read last year-The Milkman.
Mark 11:36:29 AM
50 books read last year ?! wow !
Pethie (host) 11:37:07 AM
Yep! I was on a roll. I had a long streak of having trouble reading, after being an avid reader as a kiddo.
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:38:53 AM
Pethie, That's fantastic.✨ Also, thanks for the Morvern Callar recommendation. Added! 📝
Pethie (host) 11:40:28 AM
You're welcome, Christine!
Mark 11:45:28 AM
thanks for the inspiration to finish my stack / every one remember to patronize ur local indie bookstore! :)@
Stevie P 11:46:49 AM
... and local library
Mark 11:48:11 AM
agreed on that one stevie p :)
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:52:24 AM
cue the "4 out of 5 librarians agree..." WPRB station ID
Stevie P 11:53:28 AM
hehe... christine
Pethie (host) 11:53:37 AM
Yes! This almost-librarian agrees. (I work in a library, but i'm not technically a librarian)
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:54:56 AM
I live that you work in a library, DJ Pethie that's so cool. Let's meet back here next Tuesday and discuss music & books! 📚 💗
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:55:03 AM
Pethie (host) 11:55:24 AM
I'll be here! Sounds like a plan!
Stevie P 11:55:24 AM
i put a reminder on my calendar so I wouldn't space out and miss powerclashing
Stevie P 11:55:29 AM
Mark 11:55:41 AM
haha shhhh no talking ! :)
Krista 11:55:45 AM
We've been listening while cleaning my car!
Pethie (host) 11:55:47 AM
Excellent, Stevie!
kentman 11:55:49 AM
Stevie P I wouldn't dwell on Reich's later work, his Character Analysis is a classic still in use today
Pethie (host) 11:56:06 AM
Hello Krista! So happy to have you here! I need to clean my car.
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:56:17 AM
@kentman, good to know.
Stevie P 11:56:31 AM
Kentman, are you suggesting that I will not actually be able to accumulate orgone energy?
Christine {¤_θ}° 11:56:59 AM
Hi, DJ Krista 👋
John Pittman 11:57:25 AM
Thank you Pethie!!!!
kentman 11:57:34 AM
that's cuckoo stuff, sorry
Stevie P 11:57:49 AM

Pethie (host) 11:58:05 AM

Pethie (host) 11:58:22 AM
