2 very different and very cool discs on rotation here now.Spa is an XNX Project, music, soap, video…(came with a bar of soap with an embedded USB flash drive with the CD, movie and app.) Nice Electronica.
Rumba on the Corner Live is Takumi Mori-ka and friends playing serious jazz/reggae groove things.
Ginger Baker, Bill Frisell, Charlie Haden - what a line-up! ..and Charlie Haden is gone at 76. RIP. You changed music, punk and jazz, forever. For the positive and that is a fascinating congruence.
GREENPEACE LEGO and SHELL
This cool short was taken down from youtube by Warner Bros for infringing on the Lego Movie. Hopefully Vimeo will keep it going. Cool!
Music is alive and well in this house. These three are the new stuff and the common thread of punk should be clear. We are apparently defined by our just post high school listening…Eno/Byrne (non-musicians making beauty) the Blasters, (pushing the edges of country) and these new guys, the Sleaford Mods, spitting righteous anger in the shadow of Alan Vega and Martin Rev’s Suicide.
All 3: highly recommended.

It is not Groundhog Day, Primer, Deja Vu, Timecop, Terminator or Source Code, It is: fun, exciting, riveting and thoughtful, and incredibly well shot. Say what you will about Tom Cruise (I won’t) he throws himself at these roles, and this one is actually more nuanced than many would give him credit for. My favorite summer movie so far, and I’ve seen most…don’t wait for the small screen!
Bowie’s last day - we had permission for a year, so our Space Oddity video comes down today. One last look.
Wonderful. Moving. Watch it while you can.
