As happens so often, I listened to these this morning, but didn't have time to add all this vitally important blather before I headed to work. So sad. Here's music for a Friday to cheer us all up, maybe.


1) Castles In the Snow, Twin Shadow

2) Just Like A Woman, Calexico & Charlotte Gainsbourg

3) Lungs, Cowboy Junkies (2004-08-30 - Birdie's)

4) Strong The Root (Instrumental), Lamb

5) Hello I Am Your Heart, Dennis Linde

6) My Day, Cosmo Jarvis

7) American Squirm, Nick Lowe

8) I've Got A Feeling, Beatles (Black Album)

9) Blue Driver, Michael Hurley

10) Soul Finger, The Bar-Kays


overtime!


11) I Took the Moon for a Walk, Mark Erelli

12) Etude No.2 (Superveille) (from Glass Cuts, Philip Glass Remixed), Philip Glass

13) Wait For Me, Elin Ruth


And another reasonably busy week at work. Not enough work to justify being fulltime again, but pretty close some weeks. Next week is Soonercon, in the Greater OKC Tornado Attraction Matrix. Hope to see some of you there. They have me on a pun panel. Whatever could they be thinking?

In other climate news, it's gotten hot again here, so the a/c struggles valiantly to keep it in the low 90s up here during the day.

And because the universe doesn't care, I wasn't able to see the Mountain Goats when they came through town Wednesday. Here's my second-favorite song of theirs, to remind me that life sucks.

It's been music week here at teh Belfry. Monday night we saw Spamalot at Starlight Theater, and it was extremely hilarious. The actor playing the lead Knight who says "Ni!" (among many other roles) kept trying to get King Arthur to crack up, and succeeded several times. It was a lovely evening, perfect for outdoor theater, and a good time was had by all.

Last night we saw the Richard Thompson Electric Trio at the Folly Theatre downtown. Damn, that man can play! Not that I didn't know that, but in that band configuration, the point was made even more explicitly. Michael Jerome on drums and Taras Prodaniuk on bass complemented RT perfectly, and were obviously having a great time, as was the audience. If you can catch this tour, do it!

And now, the tunes for today.


1) locus, Eugene Lee

2) The Girl That Turned the Lever, Ernie Graham

3) Nights of the Living Dead, Tilly and the Wall

4) You Already Know All There Is To Know About Time Travel (Just Look At The Stars), The Witch And The Robot

5) More Than Curious, Peter Case

6) I'm Waiting For the Man (Live), David Bowie

7) My Baby's Gone, Los Lobos (September 13, 1987 Santa Cruz County Fair)

8) The Boys Are Back In Town, Mountain Goats

9) Feel Good Factor, The Hermit Crabs

10) Side By Side (feat. Basia Bulat), Cuff The Duke


bonus


11) Piece Of Mind, World Party

12) Hot Chocolate + Polar Bear Rug (Dada Life Remix), Super Viral Brothers

13) Peng! 33, Stereolab


And, back to work. But tonight it's some First Friday action, then meeting Peter S. Beagle and seeing "The Last Unicorn." Onward, to the weekend, and glory!

Busy week. Sunday hit Trader Joe's prior to the post-church rush. So happy they are finally here.

Monday went to Lawrence and participated in presentations on polyamory to two classes (one a psychology course, the other on human sexuality). Quite interesting, and the students in the latter class asked some good questions.

Tuesday brought the Red Elvises to town. If you haven't seen them, you need to. Trust me. Highlight of the evening came during "Strip Joint Is Closed," when Oleg, the bass balalaika player, went over and started "helping" Igor play the accordion. By the end of the schtick, the instrument was in two pieces, and Oleg spent most of the break trying to glue it back together.

And we even have work at work! So, on to the tunes:


1) This Summer's Been Good from the Start, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci

2) Dizzy, Siouxsie & The Banshees

3) Right Start (Unfinished Outtake), Talking Heads

4) Fun Time / Radio Free Europe, R.E.M. (11/19/92 Greenpeace Benefit 40 Watt Club Athens, Georgia)

5) Cheating On You, Franz Ferdinand

6) Keechie, No Age

7) Trailways Of Tears, Austin Lounge Lizards

8) I Don't Know, Johnny Adams; Ruth Brown

9) Mighty Mighty, Baby Huey

10) I Know Every Street, Meeting of Important People


extra time


11) Do-Re-Mi, Steve Earle

12) Where Is Yesterday, The United States Of America

13) State Trooper [Live], Bruce Springsteen (Acoustic Tales (Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles, 1990-11-16 (Disc 2))


Not sure what's going on this weekend, besides the continuing slow roasting of most of the country. Stay hydrated, people!

Ah, another thrilling week in happyland almost over. Despite the recent warming trend (which will leaving by the end of the weekend, of course), seem to be stuck in my usual winter blahs. Let's see if some music helps.


1) Single Ladies (New Single), Beyonce

2) All Come True, World Party

3) Extra Savoir-Faire, TMBG

4) Another Set Of Bees In The Museum, The Olivia Tremor Control

5) Strawberry Fields Forever, Candy Flip

6) Days And Days, Concrete Blonde

7) Fixing My Brain, Brad Sucks

8) Sign My Snarling Doggie, The Bobs

9) Man In Need, Richard & Linda Thompson

10) Illogical Boogie, Coconut Monkeyrocket


Bonus for a lovely-looking day (not that I'll get to enjoy it stuck at work, but hey . . .)


11) 19-2000, Gorillaz

12) Kväller I Moskvas Förstäder, Jan Johansson

13) A Feeling (For Someone Else Has Grown), Bette Williams


After today's activity (or continuing lack thereof) at work, Rohanna and I are heading to the Community Christian Church (4601 Main) to relive part of her misspent youth with Danny Cox and Brewer and Shipley. For locals who have heard of the old Vanguard Coffeehouse and want to experience the nostaglia, tickets are $25 at the door. Saturday I'm doing some computer work for and having lunch with Jimmy Hollaman, and then later the ladies and I are having dinner with Lyle Wilson.

Sunday noon will find us chatting and chowing down at the monthly KCPoly Munch, held at McCoy's Public House, at the corner of Westport and Pennsylvania. Attendance has been good for the first two meetings, and all poly-friendly or curious folk are invited to join us for good beer and good food. And somewhere along the way Ro and I plan on seeing "Watchmen."
