AirPort Express | 2:41 pm |

airtunesStream your mighty iTunes library to your stereo with this lovely little wireless hub. Plug it into the wall behind your stereo, add a network and an a/v cable, and control it from your computer. (It does other cool things, too.) I’m ordering one toot sweet! Question: when does the WiFiPod come out?

pop, culture, tv | 3:11 pm | 3 June 2004

Johnny StaccatoWhile I’m thrilled that Trio is sharing the frightening Pink Lady & Jeff and Cop Rock, what I’m really digging is Johnny Staccato, starring John Cassavetes and featuring an awesome Elmer Bernstein jazz score over Saul-Bass-y titles. If I could find an mp3 of the out-of-print music, that would be awesome. UPDATE: Sweet! Russ found the theme on the iTunes Music Store. 99¢ and it’s mine!

Last night I dreamt that I was talking to an exboyfriend (who was so into pop culture & media he has a Ph.D. in it) about the relative merits of Trio vs. BBC America, and that while conceptually BBCA should be my dream channel, Trio is more interesting and should just take over BBCA so they can start raiding their vaults.

I bet you they won’t play this song on the radio | 1:42 pm | 28 May 2004

“The FCC Song,” by Eric Idle. My new favorite record.

Futuama Guitar Tabs.

I’m Not Sorry | 3:32 pm | 27 April 2004

Stephen MorrisseyMorrissey’s got a new album coming out. Yay. I’ve only listened to the clips once so it’s too early for me to comment on the music but I like it so far. Also, a little bit of age and maybe eating a sandwich or two finally have turned him very, very handsome. Irish blood, indeed.

Who will save rock & roll?

Thanks to Russ for the M. Doughty!!

die hippies die | 9:43 am | 14 April 2004

Does anyone seriously listen to current folk music?? There’s a terrible anti-war folkie bumper on the radio right now and if it goes for another 10 seconds I’m changing the channel. And do you think that people write shitty folk songs about cars just so they can be featured on Car Talk?

Cool Neighbor of Mystery | 1:05 pm | 26 March 2004

Someone’s using our wireless network – and sharing their iTunes. (This playlist, “I Protect You From Me” just magically appeared.) They’ve got pretty cool taste in music (i.e., like mine) and so I’m getting to try out some new artists. This intarweb thing kicks ass.

Slap me on the patio | 11:19 am | 11 March 2004

I was looking for a job, and then I found a job, and heaven knows I’m miserable now: The Coloring Book. I’ve been listening to a lot of The Smiths this last week and I’d forgotten how much ass they kicked.

yippee i ay | 11:23 am | 3 December 2003

TwangCast is alive and well, yay!

I can’t decide | 8:49 am | 8 October 2003

Who I hate more:
a) Randy Newman
b) Elton John
c) Bob Dylan
Right now, though, NPR is playing Overrated Annoying Hack “A,” so he’s number 1 for a loud “shut the fuck up!”

in black for the man in black | 7:27 am | 12 September 2003

RIP Johnny Cash.

When not at the playground with her friends, “Biggie Brianna” is trading music files from her home in New York.

No More One Spot Fringe Heads | 10:36 am | 23 August 2003

RIP Wesley Willis. I saw him many times at the Cactus Club; once on a double bill with Neil Hamburger (wierd night!). Poor guy. I hope the voices in his head are giving him a rest now.

White and Red Striped Finger | 9:53 am | 8 August 2003

Aha – So this is why the concert was postponed twice. We got our tickets in the mail for the Eagles Club show, yay! And since the show isn’t in the middle of hot sweaty August as originally planned, I can wear a cute outfit. Double Yay!

mmmm, bacon | 11:00 am | 18 July 2003

Kick ass: Billy Bacon & the Forbidden Pigs are at the Harmony tomorrow night. I’m not sure why but I have the hots for Jerry DeMink. In a totally non-threatening, mild appreciation from a distance sort of way. You know.
My oh my, do they have one uglayh web site.

we’re all in black | 9:37 am | 16 May 2003

June Carter Cash died yesterday. If you’re on a fast web from 9-noon today (right now), Jonny Z has a nice tribute going on throughtout today’s Chickenshack show.

Vincent Price: actor, cook, rapper.

what the fuck do you think you’re doing? | 10:02 am | 24 April 2003

The Madonna Remix Project. Not all the files are up right now but I got the first one, and it’s not bad.

a word about what I’m listening to | 8:50 am | 4 April 2003

The White Stripes‘ new album kicks ass.

the Havana of my dreams | 1:33 pm | 14 February 2003

I want to go to a Cuba that doesn’t exist (if it ever did). Himself, Dan and Jenny and I went to see the Buena Vista Social Club perform at the Madison Civic Center last night and I was just blown away. I haven’t seen the film yet but will soon. Meanwhile I’m getting the CD for my grandfather and hope to ply him for stories of his visits to Cuba.

not for faint of bandwidth | 10:06 am |

Hey girls: here’s a valentine for your Gay Boyfriend. (Um, not like that last link wasn’t.)

Ooh, NPRJazz.org. I have just found a very, very dangerous thing…

over sleepy garden walls | 11:57 am | 3 January 2003

I finally just changed the song for you. It’s Deep Purple recorded by Art Tatum with Lionel Hampton, Harry Edison, Buddy Rich, Red Callender, and Barney Kessel. My dad always played this on the piano when they were going out on a date and he was waiting for my mom to finish getting ready. I think I’m going to sneak it into the dinner / cocktails portion of the wedding playlist and see if he notices.

Rockin’ the Casbah in the Sky | 10:20 am | 23 December 2002

Joe Strummer died. Man, that sucks. My cat Rudy is named for a Clash song. Is this that dread feeling of mortality that started freaking out the baby boomers when Elvis died?
