I keep forgetting where I live.
I must be getting older. Every time someone tells me their problem, I immediately sort them into “actual problems” and “bullshit drama created in someone’s head that could be solved with an acid trip or seven days camping.”
The split is about 10% / 90% so far, respectively.
Oh no! It’s after 4, and you just realized that you missed listening to Geekly-Update, live! We’ll, never fear. Today’s episode is available for stream or download. With a full panel in the studio today, we talk about our book club selection (“This Is Your Brain On Music”), the new X-Men movie, and even take a call about Joni Mitchell. That, and more, this week. Check it out, won’t you?
Nobody remembers the way we used to remember things. Back then, it wasn’t self-reflexive. It used to mean something.
There is a part of you that is powerful and charming and witty, and for that, I admire you.
About to radio.
Staying in tonight? Why not tune in to KMUZ and listen to Mid-Valley Mutations? Tonight is the first episode, and I think you’ll quite enjoy it.
The fun starts at 10. Check it out.
For a bunch of film theorizing, philosophy-making, cheese-obsessed wine snobs, they sure know how to make modern jobs tolerable.
Tomorrow feels like Radio Christmas to me.
I feel like I can’t possibly make any sense to an outside observer.
But I realize, wether we are aware of it or not, we all feel that way.
Re: my privacy post.
It got too public.
Serious question: why are you online?
Follow-Up: why do you stay online?
I keep forgetting there’s a Total Recall remake, and I keep forgetting to be angry about it.
For my friends in Portland who made fun on me for moving to Salem: I get to go to this tomorrow night, in my home town.
So, I’ve got that going for me.
Marla & I when we go camping.
Many things make me happy, but making radio is fairly nearly the top.
Road trip adventure.
Do you make experimental music, of any shape or variety?
My new radio program – Mid-Valley Mutations – is focusing on Experimental Music, and would like to feature both local and international artists, people from next door and beyond, people well-known or just starting out, and everyone in-between.
If you make this kind of music, or release this kind of music, and would like to get it on the air, please contact me. Both physical and digital submissions are welcome. Let’s get your music on the radio here in the Mid-Valley!
Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell anyone you know who makes music that is left-of-center, and it will find a home on Mid-Valley Mutations.
After The Who, The Ramones are the greatest rock band of all time.
I love you.
Ladies, lock up your liver dinners.
A short film.
The yard is looking pretty great, actually.
Oh shit. Wish I lived in NY.
Front window looks nice.
That feeling when you know you voted, and you wish everyone else would, too.
I missed you.
How many burned DVDs must a man recycle, before his basement is clean?
The answer, my friend, is rattling in the bin. The answer is in a big plastic bin.
I read Howard The Duck, and I vote.
George and I voted. And my wife got me a button.
This is so cool. I’m depicted in illustration on the far right.
I have spent my entire adult life involved in Community Radio of one kind or another, and it has become like a best friend to me, and certainly a place where I can go – no matter where I live – and find a bunch of cool radio nerds that are into the same kind of stuff as me. Becoming a part of KMUZ has been incredibly gratifying, and I am eager to help. Right now is KMUZ’s Spring Pledge Drive, and I would like to ask you, on their behalf, to donate any amount you can afford to keep them on the air.
If you enjoy my appearances on Geekly-Update, or just tune into the station regularly to hear local news and excellent music, then I ask that you make a donation of any amount to KMUZ’s Spring Pledge Drive, and help give us the funding we need to make it through the year. It is one thing to put on radio every week, and it might seem like we’re living the dream. But our entire staff and all our programmers – top to bottom – are volunteers, and 100% of our funding comes from the kindness of listeners like you. KMUZ cannot do it alone.
Every little bit helps, and when you contribute to community radio like this – either over the phone at 503-990-6101, or through the donate links on KMUZ.org – you strengthen the very fabric of your community, and in doing so, help make living in the Mid-Valley so incredibly fun. Please, donate to KMUZ, and keep Community Radio like this alive and well.
Sometimes, The Damned are the greatest rock band that ever recorded.
Sometimes, you wonder who was pumping who full of drugs just to get the damn recording finished.
Ow. My back. I think I threw it out.
Pesto / cheese / salami / mushroom / onion / tomato pizza.
Pretty fuckin’ good.
As I predicted, selling music online is just not making anyone money, and has been trending steadily downward for the last four years. Time to rethink the music industry.
If I told you you have a beautiful mind, would you open it to me?
Yesterday I threw a chicken carcass into this pot with several containers of chicken stock, and let it stew all day. I put it all in the fridge overnight, then cut up carrots, potatoes and celery and let it stew for most of the afternoon. I’ve never done it this way, but both George and I are pretty pleased with the results.
Cooked liver and onions for the first time today. It came out okay. But the look on George’s face when I put down a plate of his favorite food.
He was so excited.
We should all be required to watch this at least an hour a day.
Homemade Mac & Cheese, with tuna.
I’ve seen this guy play before. Like, a million times, unfortunately.
Happy Mother’s Day.
I haven’t listened to The Wall since I was young enough to feel this way.
The Bernie rally here in Salem on Tuesday is near my house. We can walk there. Message me if you want free parking.
We now live in the future.
I’d rather be listening to records and reading my comics.
I hope Little Richard is okay. His work is amazing.
It was a full house this week on Geekly-Update. We talked about the Cherry City Comic Con, our April bookclub selection “Hellboy: Seed of Destruction,” and discuss the impending Captain America: Civil ͏Wa͏r, and take a call from someone who has ALREADY SEEN THE MOVIE. I’m hosting this week, and the panel is ridiculous. Available for stream or download. Enjoy!
Salem Comicon scores: the first 12 issues of Amerikan Flagg! Vol II, a grip of old Kamandi books (plus another Kirby Klassic) a few Howard The Ducks & Morrison’s The Filth, all six Skreemer’s (in Spanish… whoops), and a pile of odds and sods including Red Sonja #1, Logan’s Run #1, and a few new Mignola books I don’t have. Time to start reading.
