  • Robot Ponies
    Some more SXSW music: Robot Ponies by Laura Barrett It’s a wonderful science fiction pop song. There is one curse word, in case that bugs you. Sample lyrics: christmas eve, 2053 underneath every little girls tree a robot pony comb their soft and luscious nylon fur listen close hear their clockwork hearts whir robot ponies…

  • File under: Stepdad Pride, Swimming, Other
    I was radar gunned by the Los Angeles County Sheriff in Malibu on my way to work. Got a pass because I was with the pack. The day is beautiful. The Pacific was blue, shimmering, calm and inviting. If only the water temperature were higher. Ah well, no matter — yesterday I went swimming at…

  • Video Killed The Radio Star
    Something I missed not being in San Diego. Excellent, inspiring, beautiful cover of the one-hit-wonder. The date on the YouTube video is 2006. The band “The Wrong Trousers” is active on their myspace: via Waxy, where many good things come from
  • St. James Infirmary
    There’s an entire blog devoted to the song St. James Infirmary. It’s called NO NOTES and is pretty great. It’s a testament to the power of the web to provide whole environments where fandom and obsessive scholarship can flourish. I’m a big fan of fansites. If someone has a peculiar obsession, I think that’s great….

  • Joe2 bowls 137; Oblivious
    Went bowling yesterday with co-workers, it was pretty fun. I bowled a 137, a 130, and a 114 which put me third among the 12 folks bowling. My head is feeling better too. It’s all good. The song in my head which I was unable a good copy of from either on iTunes, Amazon MP3…
