  • 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!…

  • I blogged about an image…

    I blogged about an image whose subject was the airliner uprising on September 11th – and that I think it had emotional heft because that incident is something we don’t have pictures of. Looks like Neil Young has written a song about it called “Let’s Roll” — and I really want to listen to it….

  • I can’t believe how therapuetic it is to listen to Frank Zappa right now…

    NP: Andy by Frank Zappa. Gratuitous Zappa links: zappa.com, St. Alphonzo’s Pancake Homepage Note: I’m posting this to my blogger account of course also posting this to my livejournal. I doubt I’ll maintain my livejournal though – but LiveJournal is a very interesting community in its own right – much more of a community than…

  • Eat my eclecticism:

    My rotating playlist the other day was: He Loves U Not (Club Mix) by Dream; Crystal by New Order; God’s Child by David Byrne and Selena; Doowutchalyke by Digital Underground; Lady Marmalade (Thunderpuss Radio Mix) by Christina Aguilera, Mya, Pink, Lil’Kim, Missy Eliot; Wonderful Wino by Frank Zappa (from: The Lost Episodes); Bamboozled by Love…

  • Quote of the Day:

    Via We’re all those things right now that you’re not supposed to be. Our management always goes crazy, ’cause we all tell how old we are, and we’re not ashamed of the fact that some of us are in our mid- to late-30s. The L.A. Times did an article on us, and our management almost…
