"Kristynn, I suspect that Doctor Orange had a bad experience with a taco and that he eventually ended up discovering a new culinary delight. Probably Jamba Juice. Jamba Jamba Jamba Jamba..." - Ontario Emperor

"I should probably ask the "taco organizations!" if they know what happened to Doctor Orange." - Ontario Emperor
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark – Almost -
This is a very early OMD song (the one with the chorus "Happens all the time to a friend of mine"). Minimal without being robotic. - Ontario Emperor
2+ years later, this song is back in my head after re-reading a Depeche Mode biography. OMD preceded DM in popularity at first, though the tables had turned by the time of 101. - John E. Bredehoft
@shawnz i am more elderly. flash and the pan's "walking in the rain" or donna summer's "i feel love" was my high school soundtrack.

It's now December 2009, and that song has entered my head for some reason. - John E. Bredehoft

@lotd lucy and ramona and sunset sam -michael nesmith
Again based on a comment to the Dave Winer tweet. Back around 1980, a classified ad ran in Rolling Stone which asked, do you know what Michael Nesmith's been up to? So you called an 800 number (no 888 back then). Turns out he was doing sumfin called video, which was going to become huge (yeah right). Then you heard an audio snippet of the song above. - Ontario Emperor from fftogo
OK. So I called weird 800 numbers while I was in college. What was I supposed to do, snort liquid pape and sing a song to a porpoise? - Ontario Emperor from fftogo
You Californians are so weird :D - Mark Forman
On Wednesday, March 10, 2010, expect a post in my Empoprise-MU blog that compares Michael Nesmith and Rick James. - John E. Bredehoft
It's amazing how many dozens - hundreds? - of people will subscribe to an inactive Twitter account.

P.D.Q. Bach [pseudonym of Peter Schickele] – Toot Suite for calliope 4-hands, S212§, (O. K Chorale) -
P.D.Q. Bach [pseudonym of Peter Schickele] – Iphigenia in Brooklyn, cantata, S53162 -
This piece consists of an Aria, a Recitative, a Ground, another Recitative, and another Aria. I can truly say that the Ground ("Dying, and yet in death alive") is one of my favorite pieces of music. Not just the cello or the singing, but also the double reeds - Schickele notes that many composers wrote for double reeds, but only PDQ Bach wrote for double reeds without using an oboe or bassoon.... - Ontario Emperor
For once, I'm actually listening to music from CDs that I own, rather than just streaming from randomly. This is from "The Wurst of PDQ Bach," which also includes the oratorio "The Seasonings" ("Bide thy thyme" et al), and the excellent New Horizons in Music Appreciation, a play by play of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. - Ontario Emperor
And if V sees this, yes it's a Vanguard album. - Ontario Emperor
pdq++ - Kevin Johnson
I believe that's the one that features the BargainCounterTenor. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed "When PDQ Bach started doing public concerts in 1965, I got together with Russell Oberlin but he was just starting a year off that turned out to be his retirement. I'm sorry that I never got to work with him, but on the other hand it led to my finding John Ferrante, another countertenor with a woderful robust sound, with whom I worked for a... more... - Ontario Emperor

37 songs on my playlist are no longer available, including Devo's "C'mon," Dilba's "Miracles," and Jerry Harrison's "Man With a Gun." Disappointed.
I think it's Warner Bros. that pulled their licenses last week from Last.FM because they could get a better deal with MySpace Music. Very disappointing. - Dana Franks from twhirl

acck. bummer. the music industry politics suck. - edythe

Hmm...Talking Heads' "Born Under Punches" and Madonna's "Like a Prayer" still played for me this morning. Interesting... - Ontario Emperor
Hm. I must use in some oddball way; I've never played songs from the site. I just use iTunes, find interesting to view my listening habits. - Phil Crissman
I'm probably the oddball. I've never installed any of's software. I just select items I like, add them to the playlist, and listen away. - Ontario Emperor
I scrobble from iTunes, Pandora and I use the software to listen - Jeff Quinton
I don't usually play songs on the site unless someone wants me to hear something i don't have and has the whole song. - edythe
On May 17, 2009, the Dilba song came up in my I'll re-check "C'mon" and "Man With a Gun." - John E. Bredehoft
Neither "C'mon" nor "Man With a Gun" are available. But at least we have Dilba. - John E. Bredehoft
They change periodically without logic. Also, check for variant names. Sometimes the (album version) or a subtitled track will be streamable. - Michael W. May
Just a reminder - this account is pretty much defunct unless I post something to it by mistake. You can find me at - actually, as of April 6, 2009, at
