Stopgap Measure Part 2: Dancing with the Stars

Whew! Show's over and I just got back from a birthday getaway in Carmel, NY. As I mentioned last time, I'm committed to posting every third Wednesday, but not necessarily posting anything of substance. Enjoy the pretty pictures for now, and I'll be back on the writing train in a couple of weeks. I might even post a new piece early cause I've been thinking a lot!



In case you were wondering, that's Rin Liminal Switch Volume Three: Ventilating the Corpse by Shrin. It's got this one super-long, jarringly ambient track on it that's gongs being bowed and beaten. Also there's guitar music. The cover is a photo of a cow that's flipped right-to-left and color-inverted.




Note the moves. Frances could win on Dancing with the Stars. I think she's more famous than some of those people too.



Here's a picture of a toddler with a Wire record:



It's Frances, and the record is Document and Eyewitness.



Nothing to say, so I'll just throw in this stunning picture of Frances and a telephone pole. Happy Fall!

Sitting in Limbo

I've admitted to myself the twin realities that:


  1. I'm producing a show in 16 days.

  2. Everyone I've spoken with that reads this blog just looks at the baby pictures and ignores my blather.



Thus for September's posts, I've decided to streamline the process and just post a bunch of pictures of Frances holding records that she picked for me that I was never going to get around to writing about anyway. Expect more of the same for the next tri-weekly post on September 22. You all get what you want (Frances!) and I get what I want (well I'd like to have time to write I guess but also there's music to make and bacon to bring home) so it's a win-win. I'll return to posting real writing in October. Until then, enjoy these...



On Eagle's Wings, Volume Two features beautiful, relaxing music for harp and flute, and it set me back all of a dollar at Weirdo Records in Cambridge, MA. (I was hoping the awesome "get your freak on" price tag would come out in one of the photos, but alas.)



Bettine Clemen and Elizabeth Turrell play the flute and harp, and have long hair and flowy garments. Take another look at that front cover, though:



It's a watercolor! Specifically, it's this painting by Raegan Word. Look at that eagle! Watercolor! Wow.

Next, Terminal Boredom by the Registrators:









They are Japanese punk, and they say "thanks to no one."
