the_dude 7:06:31 AM

Brian D 7:08:18 AM
That opener Vas
the_dude 7:08:24 AM
Oh it was awesome! At 97, he was incredible regardless of age, and then being 97 just made it impressive. Interesting acoustics outside, sounded really good still, and it was a nice back drop, cemetery was cool
Mark 7:08:40 AM
hi dude ! yes i got to see the show / i owe u for clueing me into that it was happening !!

Brian D 7:09:19 AM
Wow Marshall Allen is performing at 97! Way to go
Christine ✔Broodin' Gen X 7:09:41 AM
@Brian, I was reminded of Lisa Gerrard of DCD, too
the_dude 7:09:58 AM
Awesome, glad to hear it! Yeah it was kinda short, but only because for an encode they marched thru this house, and then invited everyone in, management wasn't pleased so they played a bit for a small crowd inside, sung happy birthday, and then had to wrap up. Made it inside though 😬
Mark 7:11:34 AM
haha yes i talked to a couple of staffers they were quite angry w the crowd going into the mansion
Brian D 7:13:32 AM
Ra conducting well from space no doubt
Mark 7:15:48 AM
ha yes he was all the way from Saturn 🪐 they had to have close to 20 performers in arkrstra
the_dude 7:27:39 AM
And evad, sorry for not filling in, if you couldn't piece it together sun ra arkestra played last night in west Philly at woodlands cemetery to celebrate Marshall Allen's 97th birthday, great to see music again
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:29:05 AM
Yeah, I caught the chatter yesterday evening. Glad it worked out.
the_dude 7:39:36 AM
Cool, hope you can get out yourself soon! Also, that vas track made me think of Om a bit, not that they sound like them too much but there's similar vocals on one album, are you familiar with them at all?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 7:42:09 AM
Dude, I am not familiar with Om.

There are a few bands going by "Om". Can you recommend a particular LP?

@Dave the Obscure, I'm loving the cicadas in the background.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:04:25 AM
I'm planning on going to Princeton one hot day to record the actual Brood X. The background is just overlaid annual cicadas.
Christine ✔Broodin' Gen X 8:07:12 AM
Great idea
the_dude 8:10:08 AM
OK so check out album Advaitic Songs (awesome drumming and string instruments). And then God is Good is great too, albums before that, like Variations on a Theme, also great but more straight up doom metal, just drum and bass.
the_dude 8:10:30 AM
I have yet to hear ant cicadas :/
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:11:43 AM
Thanks for the info, dude. Re: cicadas, you'll have to get outside the city, to some old growth woods.
the_dude 8:11:58 AM
It started as bassist and drummer from Sleep but Emil Amos steps in on God is Good and after and he's so good
the_dude 8:13:18 AM
Yeah thanks you're right, and I have been a out a bit too but I guess not far enough/ or right direction. Gonna be in jersey this weekend so my hear is on the hunt
Chef Emeril "WPR-BAM!!!" Lagasse 8:14:53 AM
Haven't heard any in upper bucks yet, but I haven't hunted much. Heard there's some in Green Lane. Also heard chickens Live to eat them lol

ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:16:37 AM
BIG cicada population in Princeton.
the_dude 8:17:17 AM
Ha I'm sure it's a chicken feast dream...I wonder what that chicken/ those eggs taste like ...

Christine ✔Broodin' Gen X 8:23:30 AM
@Chef, as a chef, what's your take on cooking/eating cicadas?
David Shortell 8:25:56 AM
Heimdall toots on the Gjallarhorn cometh Ragnarok, right?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:27:50 AM
I'll have to take your word for that, David.
Christine ✔Broodin' Gen X 8:33:19 AM

Chef Emeril "WPR-BAM!!!" Lagasse 8:40:42 AM
I'm a certified advocate for entomophagy , however I think we should wait to see how brood x is doing before harvesting them. Annuals? Go ahead and KICK IT UP A NOTCH
Brian D 8:57:01 AM
O yes this is great
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 8:58:20 AM
Early 70's is my favorite Santana period.
the_dude 9:09:24 AM
That's wise of you chef, make sure there's cicadas for decades to come. And what do you mean by Glum in the description, just the word or is that something I don't know?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:11:22 AM
glum: feeling or looking gloomy, sullen, morose. It's just their band photos are always like that.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:12:10 AM
This photo looks like the lineup for Usual Suspects.
Mark 9:26:11 AM
haha it does look like the lineup scene:) trying to figure out who correspond to who
the_dude 9:27:53 AM
Haha ok cool and yeah totally agreed. I just wouldn't have been surprised if it was some sort larger French prog collective or something

You have to screen shot his comments before he deleted them!

Mark, I think that's a match.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 9:30:26 AM
And Mr. M usually won't get up for my show.
Christine ✔Broodin' Gen X 9:34:24 AM
Late to the joke, but: good one! 💀
Mark 9:37:44 AM
haha so mrM has a theme music for that prb show he says he’s hosting:)
Mark 9:39:10 AM
dead bees on a cake : great menu item !
Christine ✔Broodin' Gen X 9:49:26 AM
@Mark, do the bees ruin the cake or enhance the cake?
Christine ✔Broodin' Gen X 9:51:50 AM
I appreciate when the mood darkens on The New Abnormal.
