Now for Something Deliciously Wacky: Superorganism, NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

April 25, 2018 | Bob Boilen — I went from really loving the music of Superorganism to being a transformed super-fan the moment they sent me an email ahead of their Tiny Desk performance asking, “is it okay if we [bring] inflatable whales when we play?” Now I feel like the kind of fan I was when I wore a yellow radiation suit to a Devo concert in 1978.

The multinational band of theatrically fun and talented musicians in Superorganism mix melody and mischievous with almost Seussian folly. In addition to the 20-plus inflatable whales they provided, the band requested via email that we provide “7 x Crunchy apples, 7 x cans of Coca Cola (or similar, as long as they are 330mls/12oz cans it doesn’t matter).” They added, “PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A RIDER BUT PART OF THE PERFORMANCE.”

When the seven members of the band arrived and huddled behind my desk, they blew into straws, making percussive noises, used toy cars and radios for sound effects and added lots of handclaps. And in the midst of it all was Orono Noguchi, a small-framed, self-described “average 17-year old Japanese girl living in Maine.” (That’s from an email she wrote me last year). The band set up a couple of belt pack guitar amps for their Moog and electric guitar, along with a big Anvil road case to beat on for percussion – and then they sang about prawns.

“Oh, have you ever seen a prawn cause a world war?
Have you ever kissed a prawn; got a cold sore?
Have you ever seen a prawn kick off?
Have you ever seen a prawn in a pair of handcuffs, oh

You people make the same mistakes
Over and over, it’s really kinda dumb, oh
Slow learning is kinda your thing

You do you, I’ll do me

Chillin’ at the bottom of the sea and I say…

[Chorus]

I’m happy just being a prawn.

If all this hasn’t made you curious enough to watch this Tiny Desk, we’ll never be friends and it’s probably best if you skip this. But I’m going hit the play button again and, after that, listen again to their debut, self-titled album!

SET LIST
“The Prawn Song”
“Night Time”

Eric Trump, a son of the president who helps manage the company, told The Washington Post that none of the cash used to purchase the 14 properties came from outside investors or from selling off major Trump Organization assets.

Instead, Eric Trump said, the firm’s existing businesses — commercial buildings in New York, licensing deals for Trump-branded hotels and clothes — produced so much cash that the Trumps could tap that flow for spending money.

“He had incredible cash flow and built incredible wealth,” Eric Trump said. “He didn’t need to think about borrowing for every transaction. We invested in ourselves.”

Charles, thanks for the Tiny Desk video. That was fun and refreshing.

Gives me some hope because the material my buddy and I are working on is simplistic but fun and based on lyric and rhythms as much as detailed complex arrangements.

I had to like it right off because they were singing about prawns!

And that is because one of my favorite fun songwriters/singers is Robyn Hitchcock and he often mentioned prawns.

re: #2 jaunte

Sort of an open non-secret that only Deutchebank - and then only certain departments there - will loan him anything anymore. So yes, of course, if he’s spending money on properties it’s all “his own”. One way or another.

Never quite figured out how the party of bank-worshippers could convince themselves to support and elect someone that Big Money doesn’t actually want to work with anymore.

donald trump has spent $400M+ in his own cash on property since ‘06, defying normal real-estate practices.

Pull the other one.

they want us to believe that he is a fully independent businessman, beholden to nobody.

if only there were some documents he could release that would confirm this assertion

“…In the nine years before he ran for president, Donald Trump’s company spent more than $400 million in cash on new properties — including 14 transactions paid for in full, without borrowing from banks — during a buying binge that defied real estate industry practices and Trump’s own history as the self-described “King of Debt.”

Trump’s vast outlay of cash, tracked through public records and totaled publicly here for the first time, provides a new window into the president’s private company, which discloses few details about its finances.

It shows that Trump had access to far more cash than previously known, despite his string of commercial bankruptcies and the Great Recession’s hammering of the real estate industry. “

jaunte  May 5, 2018 • 12:37:14pm

“Why did the “King of Debt,” as he has called himself in interviews, turn away from that strategy, defying the real estate wisdom that it’s unwise to risk so much of one’s own money in a few projects?

And how did Trump — who had money tied up in golf courses and buildings — raise enough liquid assets to go on this cash buying spree?”

jaunte  May 5, 2018 • 12:39:26pm

“By 2011, Trump had spent at least $46 million on all-cash purchases.

Public records reveal some details about the Trump Organization’s finances during this time period.

The company was taking in tens of millions from the sale of residential properties, including a home in Palm Beach for $95 million in 2008. It made money off licensing deals: In 2015, Trump reported making at least $9.1 million from those deals over 16 months. The firm also collected rent from its commercial buildings, producing what Forbes recently estimated was $175 million annually.

But that wasn’t all free cash. Those businesses came with costs — salaries, renovations, taxes, payments on existing mortgages — that pulled money out of the business. Those costs haven’t been released.”

From the previous thread:

re: #229 MsJ

What’s up with Fox News? They seem…agitated with trump.

Yup, I have been thinking about this too.

The best I can come up with is that Fox is worried about erosion in the viewership due to being closely tied to Trump. And they are testing the waters to see if they can diversify their audience. If so, it will be interesting to watch party discipline break down.

I think we can all guess why Trump always said he was being audited by the IRS.

His freaking tax forms must be as confusing as the crap that flows out of his mouth.

That is if we can even believe he is being audited.

I love music that works out of the bounds of what everyone considers music and challenges people to reconsider those bounds.

Also, the singer even has a dead-pan delivery style of how she does the lyrics. I think that added to all the other happy stuff going on around her…contrasts.

All of it apparently.

Trump really has big balls to have done what he has done.

He seems to have a ton of issues in his closet and lots of questions surrounding his entire life.

Then he runs for one of the most public jobs ever that should have brought on the utmost in scrutiny of all of it.

He gets elected with all that still swirling around him and here we are.

I sure hope for the sake of the U.S. this sad time gets written down as a complete chapter in history books of what to never do again.

Reason I ask is Trump makes it sound like he has been under audit for years. Is that just more BS and there is no way he has not been audited say for 2014 return the year before he announced he was running for president? That would have been one his returns he claimed he couldn’t show.

Well, here’s the scoop on that “Iran Freedom Convention” - caveat: from the Washington Times - sounds like the usual collection of anti-regime activists. It seems Rudy! was already slated to speak there: but of course, any actual knowledge of the JCPOA deal is decidedly unnecessary at events like this: slagging the mullahs and spouting the right buzzwords about “freedom” and “democracy” are all that’s needed.

The Observer: Revealed: Trump team hired spy firm for ‘dirty ops’ on Iran arms deal
Israeli agency told to find incriminating material on Obama diplomats who negotiated deal with Tehran

Aides to Donald Trump, the US president, hired an Israeli private intelligence agency to orchestrate a “dirty ops” campaign against key individuals from the Obama administration who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear deal, the Observer can reveal.

People in the Trump camp contacted private investigators in May last year to “get dirt” on Ben Rhodes, who had been one of Barack Obama’s top national security advisers, and Colin Kahl, deputy assistant to Obama, as part of an elaborate attempt to discredit the deal.

The extraordinary revelations come days before Trump’s 12 May deadline to either scrap or continue to abide by the international deal limiting Iran’s nuclear programme.

Jack Straw, who as foreign secretary was involved in earlier efforts to restrict Iranian weapons, said: “These are extraordinary and appalling allegations but which also illustrate a high level of desperation by Trump and [the Israeli prime minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, not so much to discredit the deal but to undermine those around it.”

One former high-ranking British diplomat with wide experience of negotiating international peace agreements, requesting anonymity, said: “It’s bloody outrageous to do this. The whole point of negotiations is to not play dirty tricks like this.”

Sorry unscheduled nap got in the way

An audit itself takes as long as it takes. I’ve had some go a couple of years. Complex ones don’t move fast.

I think its BS though unprovable.
There are rules and statutes of limitations
you can also agree to anything
Now if they suspect fraud they can go back as far as they want without permission

If say he’s really got ten years open by agreement I’d wonder what the irs showed them they have so they agreed to that

The IRS won’t confirm or deny an audit to the public so I think it’s smoke

Fond du Lac’s Don Gorske eats milestone 30,000th Big Mac

“This one is a biggie for me, something I have been looking forward to,” said Gorske, a 64-year-old retired prison guard. He last made the news in October 2017, when representatives from the Guinness Book of World Records traveled to Fond du Lac to record him eating his 29,482nd Big Mac, broadcast on a Facebook Live feed.

The Big Mac maniac gave a half-hour presentation to the crowd, which gathered to watch him take that first bite of the 30,000th all-beef patty, with special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame-seed bun. He showed off his record books and how he keeps track of thousands of receipts, sandwich wrappers and containers.

“People like to see proof,” he said.

Mrs. FBW and I were watching “Charade” last night, in which, at Reggie’s late unlamented husband’s funeral, one guy pulls out a mirror which he shoves under the deceased’s nose and another pulls out a pin and sticks the deceased with it.

I thought of that when I read your comment.

People close to John McCain have told the White House that McCain doesn’t want Trump to attend his funeral.

Trump only attends funerals of guys who don’t get captured…

I’ll wait until after it’s done. Then I’ll find a bar within walking distance of the grave, drink a gallon of beer, and then pay a visit. :)

Blind Frog Belly White  May 5, 2018 • 3:27:22pm

I just read about two young Native American guys who were on a college tour, when a white woman called 911 on them.

My question is this: Why is it we know the names of these two guys, but we DON’T know the name of the woman who called? Shouldn’t THAT be the lede? She called the cops on two innocent kids out of racism. Why don’t we know her name, so that her family, her neighbors, and her coworkers all know what she did? Why is her name kept secret?

I’m at the point where I no longer give a shit about being nice, or not doxxing people who do bad shit. Trump’s election has unleashed an ugly xenophobia in America and we’ll never tamp it back down if we’re being nice and proper and not naming goddam names.

I was an IRS auditor in a former life and just want to agree with what you said and also add (having developed more than my share of tax fraud cases) there is the distinct possibility that he is NOT releasing any return(s) under audit because there is the real likelihood that potential fraud has been discovered during the course of a typically huge and messy “normal” big business return.

Here’s how this should have gone - Cops show up, talk to woman. Cops talk to young men, confirm woman was full of shit. Cops call all the people on the tour together and publicly dress down the woman for her racism and for wasting their time, then present her with a bill for their time.

But I’ve made note of that several times in the last few days. It’s sickening as all hell that, somehow, that’s their takeaway. The crossways between their gun worship and fear of black men positing that 1) guns are the only security, 2) this man stopped a ‘bad guy with a gun’ WITHOUT a gun, must mean 3) black men are as powerful as a gun and therefore are inherently dangerous. It’s…I don’t know how you even get to that mindset.

Well, it certainly could have been worse.

A Black guy on PCP…with the strength of a rabid elephant throwing off cops left and right and picking the damn police cruiser up and throwing it at other cops coming at him.

Who knows who is good and bad when someone is all drugged up? Guy could’a tore that Waffle House down.

Yeah, it can always be worse.

So, you know, you just can’t take your chances after you hear all those stories.

The NRA is apparently embarrassed by the brain-dead anti-YETI vandalism campaign. They are offering advice and free propaganda stickers as an alternative.

ALERT! FREE “I Stand with the NRA Foundation Sticker” for YETI Coolers

Don’t blow up your Yeti cooler. Don’t shoot your Yeti cooler full of holes. Don’t chain your Yeti cooler to the back of your pick-up truck and drag it down the highway. Don’t glue a toilet seat to Yeti cooler. Don’t hang your Yeti cooler in a tree and beat it with a baseball bat.

Put a big “I STAND WITH THE NRA FOUNDATION” sticker on your YETI cooler and keep using it. They cost too much money to destroy to make a statement. Let a sticker make your statement.

Is Rudy the new market tester?

Trump sends him out to float an idea, then sits back and watches for the reactions.

If they are good, it is good to go and The Don can take credit for the brilliance and then sell it.

If it falls flat Rudy didn’t have all the correct details and you know, he’s a good guy, just gets a little ahead of himself.

re: #134 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

1-1/4 lengths? Wow. Sounds like it wasn’t much of a race.

Well, it was a decisive win by a great horse, well ridden. Came out fast, held second place for half the race (jockey had to hold him back, I think) then took over, looking beautiful. Meanwhile second and third were closing, and ended up separated by a short nose.

A fun couple of minutes, brought to you by Woodford Reserve bourbon, which I really should have been drinking instead of my 805. I was rooting for Audible, which promised us all a free download if it won; he closed faster than any other, but only for third.

It shows a surprising amount of thought, for a Dog of Very Little Brain.

I love this phrasing:

The bombshell revelations from President Trump and his lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani Wednesday night and Thursday morning about the election-eve payment to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels seemed like they were meant to show that the payments did not violate federal campaign laws.

Instead, all they did was shorten the fuse on that particular bomb.

washingtonpost.com

And again, I wonder, why is the yam’s personal lawyer giving foreign policy talks?
