  • Good Feedback on my Randy Newman Post
    I just read your Randy Newman post. Two thoughts… First, you should check out Harry Nilsson’s brilliant “Nilsson Sings Newman” from 1970: Second, you should take a listen to Loudon Wainwright III, another singer-songwriter who never seemed to break big like Randy Newman did, but who has the same wit and heart: I recommend Loudon’s…
  • New Stew Lyrics Transcribed
    An artist for whom I have a profound respect: The Statue Song (Indoors Again) My Damn Butterfly Boomy Guitar Song Miss Satan Check this bit: well i had to wake up sometime from this dream of being real they put me here exposed to the world and expect me not to feel so if you…
  • Randy Newman
    Today I’m enjoying Randy Newman. I can’t exactly remember when I first picked up the Randy Newman box set, but I believe it was right after Jennifer left me. I’ve been listening to Newman for a year or so now, and I believe him to be a genius. I distinctly remember asking fellow coworkers and…
  • Go Heidi! Cover Problem! Stew! Woo!
    Got this via the Negro Problem / Stew mailing list : Work has begun on Heidi Rodewald’s solo record. 90% of the basics have been recorded I think. Also we are at work on the new Stew record which will be out this year, as will Heidi’s. A collaboration between the award winning Los Angeles…
  • Raining Like A Big Dog
    So I’m behind on a few things, but ahead on others. And boy oh boy — it sure is raining like a big dog. It’s pouring off of the roof in sheets. A real racket! Anyway, I’m blogging less and I’m all backed up with links. Perhaps you’ll be sated by these links: The Museum…
  • Here’s A Long Los Angeles Recap
    Phew. I had a great time in Los Angeles yesterday. I left at quarter of 9, and traffic started immediately. Luckily though, I was not late for the Web405 brunch at Du-Par’s. Excellent company and a lovely traditional breakfast (eggs over easy and turkey links). Good to see old colleagues and meet new friends too….
  • Can’t do nuttin’ for ya man
    Based on the referrers this blog gets, I get a lot of hits from people wanting to find the Strokes / Christina Aguilera remix/mutation called “A Stroke of Genius” by the Freelance Hellraiser. The original thing I blogged in January is down. Unfortunately, you’re probably going to have to use Gnutella or something like it….
  • This piece about Talking Heads and The Ramones made me a little weepy…
    This piece about Talking Heads and The Ramones made me a little weepy. Nostalgia sucks.

  • Christina Wins Grammy, Looks Cute
    Christina looked pretty cute, according to the pictures provided at christinaaguilera.to. I think she’s slowly learning to moderate her bad fashion choice habit. Can’t wait to hear her new album. I liked the thing she did at the Winter Olympics, Infatuation.
  • Lunch/Stew/Mechanical Ventilation/Dark Knight 2/San Diego Bloggers
    Today, no deep introspection, no thoughtful thoughts. In lieu, some quickies: – I’m going to Lunch with a big old crew of folks! Should be rockin’ cool. – Listen to Stew on KRCW [show in realaudio] – Learn something about critical care. Pay special attention to respiratory therapy and mechanical ventilation, that’s my old job!…
