Magical Motes (Humming and Heaving)

The way I see it, at this point I got nothing to lose.

“Detach from station, and may god’s love be with you”

Tomorrow, Commander Chris Hadfield bids farewell to the International Space Station, meaning we won’t get our usual dose of his tweets and videos sent from space. But he’s signing off with a little David Bowie.

Stabbin’ Cabin: World’s Swept

In the nameless midwest a puppy encounters a force he doesn’t understand.

Music: “Evil Ball” by Sinoia Caves

Lyrics notwithstanding, if this don’t make you happy

I got no help for ye.

If this’n don’t make ye happy

then there’s nothing I can do for you.

Nico in Indianapolis

There is something grotesque to me about there being this wonderful steakhouse St Elmó, and then just up the street the linguistically repellant chain steakhouse “Ruth’s Chris,” whatever that means, opens up shop. I feel like the people should take to the streets with pitchforks to protest that shit. Similarly, we need to shut down the TGI Fridays in Union Square; let’s take a tactic from the anti-abortion protestors and make people need an escort to get a mudslide fifteen paces from the greenmarket.

Catching up with Nico.

OK Go: Needing/Getting

Okay, I missed OK Go’s “Needing/Getting” when it played during the 2012 Super Bowl, and I’m one of the last eight or ten people in the world who had not seen it before this evening.

Be sure to view the video for “This Too Shall Pass.” It’s within the linked article.

Rory Gallagher: Cradle Rock

Cradle Rock (Montreux 1975)

This was on my mind today, although I’m not sure what made it jump out of my memory.

One of the most influential guitarists of the Seventies, Irish-born Rory Gallagher passed away at the age of 47 in 1995, of complications from a liver transplant. Although he remains relatively unknown, Gallagher is remembered by a devoted fan base, and listed as an inspiration by other, more famous guitar heroes.

Keaton Henson “You Don’t Know How Lucky You Are”

I recently discovered this singer/songwriter, and I still can’t shake this song. I found the video for this song today and I’m not sure how I feel about the video.  One thing I do love is it reminds me of a Monet painting my art history teacher showed today.

I will say he reminds me of Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith which are two of my favorites.

Frank Zappa: Dirty Love

And so, balance in the universe is restored.

A new hit song by Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Miles

Feeling constrained by the limitations of the Jimi Hendrix Experience trio (which included drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding), the guitarist had already started working with an eclectic group of musicians.

They included the Buffalo Springfield’s Stephen Stills, drummer Buddy Miles, saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood and bassist Billy Cox, with whom Hendrix had served in the U.S. military.

The resulting sessions, culled from 1968 and 1969, form the basis of “People, Hell and Angels,” co-produced by Janie Hendrix, original engineer and mixer Eddie Kramer and long-time Hendrix historian John McDermott.  (via Reuters)

Fruits and Veggies as instruments

j.viewz plays Massive Attack’s Teardrop (also used as the opening song for the TV show House) using fruits, vegetables, and the MakeyMakey. I kind want one of these so I can play cupcake drums.

The ten best pictures of Morrissey with cats

Stereogum has a post on the ten best Morrissey songs, but it’s also the ten best pictures of Morrissey with cats. Not sure I agree with the list, but who cares? There’s no point in debating whether “Seasick, Yet Still Docked” measures up to “I Know It’s Over”, and they didn’t count Smiths songs in there, anyway.
