Just one more plug for my DJ debut tonight at Carbon (see previous post.) In case that doesn’t inspire you to drop by, check out this spellbinding flyer:
Speaking of excellent DJ’s, I happen to know that there’s a cluster of good ones spinning on Wednesday, November 29th. That’s tomorrow, folks. At Carbon in Culver City. And one of those DJ’s happens to be me, finally participating in DJ Ned Learner’s What The DJ Wants night. I’ll be kicking things off at about […]
A couple weeks ago I waxed enthusuastic about the new offering from DJ Sandra Collins. But that was before I picked up the new James Holden comp. People who know me (some of them, anyway) know that I adore Mr. Holden’s work. It’s complex and intricate, and as dance music goes, inaccessible and relatively obscure. […]
We’ll miss him. Though his career was studded with highs (M*A*S*H, Nashville, The Player) and lows (Pret-a-Porter, Beyond Therapy) he was a force of nature. No one had his touch for ensemble pieces. He was a classic ringmaster, peerless and dedicated to the craft.
Bad blog! Speak up! Okay, tonight I’m distracted by This American Life. They’re replaying one of my favorite episodes. “Heretics” is a beautifully produced piece on Carlton Pearson. He’s a pastor in Tulsa Oklahoma. he runs a church called Higher Dimensions. This installment of TAL describes his rise as an articulate, eloquent and intelligent preacher, […]
I’m just gonna continue my recent flow of single-thought posts. File this under, “Check It Out.” A kiwi realizes its dream of flight. Oddly touching.
Hey, it’s that time of month again. Actually, it’s a little past that time of month. Grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy the latest batch of music reviews from Portland-based music genius, Michael Keefe. This week, he checks out new releases by Beck, Frank Black and my own current fave, The […]
After work at Amoeba on Sunday. We walk over to the lot behind Baja Fresh. Kirk is limping. His foot cramped up so badly on the way down from the mezzanine that he had to sit on the stairwell and grab his toes in agony. We reach my car… This is what I get for […]
I simply must update that story about Adrienne Shelly. Apparently, she complained to a construction noise he was making in a nearby office. He punched her. The punch killed her. He dragged her body back into her office and set her up to look like she’d committed suicide. “I was having a bad day. I […]
I swear, I’m the only person I know who’s excited about a new compilation by Sandra Collins. It’s not that no one else thinks it’s good. It’s because pretty much everyone I know in Hollywoodland aren’t into progressive house. It’s a Perfecto release. That’s Paul Oakenfold, for those of you who are in the know. […]
