The Rampler #5 (8/15/08)

The Rampler #5 (8/15/08) (27:23 / 25.2 MB)

Show Notes:

A lunchbreak episode. Frank has registered the domain name and finally seems settled that this will be the name of these programs. Mentions Walter Becker’s new solo lp. Doesn’t like Circus Money at all. Elite Foodbar is considered. Steely Dan talk for the uninformed. Crazy woman, who is behaving more normal than usual. Deli sounds. Sees a white guy and an Asian girl making out that initially look like mannequins. Sounds like ‘Slingblade’ when he says ‘doggys’. Describes and takes over spot by East River for lunch, reviews Aloe Vera King drink and stops to eat.

You can help! Go to The Rampler Show Notes Wiki and write some show notes for this episode. They can be as brief or detailed as you like. Always feel free to add more details or make corrections to what’s already there. Thanks!!

Join host Frank Edward Nora his daily commute, walking through the streets of NYC, as he discusses a dizzying myriad of topics. This show is an experimental “spinoff” of Frank’s main show, The Overnightscape (which continues on as normal). The show is recorded directly as a 128kbps MP3 file on an Edirol R-09 portable recorder. This makes it much easier to release the recordings, since no post-production is required. Also, at least to start with, the shows will be released without show notes to further speed up the release process.

“The Rampler” is released here on The Overnightscape Underground, but it exists outside the standard “Day” format – again, to make it easier to very quickly record and release.

  2. Eddie’s commment reminds me of a student Summer I spent in Boston, one of several….Went into an “Irish” store, where some African guy was selling imported Irish confectionery to homesick ex-pats. Just for fun I decided to buy 2 packs of Tayto crisps. Went to the counter, the price turned out to be so much I didn’t have enough in my wallet. And I had notes!

    So I just said “I have to go to the ATM. Back in a minute, sorry”. And never went back.
