It’s Already Music Thursday

We’ve been blanketed in KC with snow today.  It’s wonderful.  Feel free to enjoy this week’s Music Thursday selections with a cup of hot chocolate.  Although, I’m sure it’s still damn hot down in J.E.’s Texas — where hot chocolate might not be as pleasant. By the way, I didn’t intend for last week’s mix to be […]

There…But Back Again?

Perhaps you’ve all heard the brouhaha between Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema. It looks dire about Jackson directing The Hobbit, which would be a big disappointment after the brilliance of The Lord of the Rings films. I read about this this evening in The New York Times, so it’s certainly getting some attention. Go […]

Thanksgiving Leftovers Music Thursday

One more track for all of your Thanksgiving-loving hearts: 01 Travel By Sea | “I Won’t Let You Down” I hope everyone is well, had great holiday festivities, and had safe travels to and from their destinations.

It’s Never Too Late Music Thursday

Apologies about not posting this yesterday.  Understandably, there was turkey to be eaten.  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  One thing I was thankful for yesterday was the many years of white meat (and tofurkey), cranberries, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing and wine we all had the privilege of sharing together.  Not to mention […]

Update, etc.

For those of you who want an update, I received my first response to my letters to my two Congressman and my eight reps. from Ron Kind (democrat in house). It was a form letter, emphasizing that Kind voted for both intitiatives that the White House has passed regarding Sudan and Chad conflicts. The second […]

What I’ve done

http://picasaweb.google.com/SzuFeng.Chen The link above will take you to an album put together by one of our design students. It represents a small portion of what I’ve been up to this semester. This is the show that prevented me from joining the HM in Kansas City. In less than an hour we will strike it. Sweet […]

Poetry Merge

Do not fret, soon Music Thursday will be posted.  My computer went down this week, so I’m a little behind on things, so I am collecting candidates and will soon have them filtered down to a few choice Music Thursday selections. In the meanwhile, enjoy this interview I heard today on NPR.  This artist folds […]

Come one and all.

OK, here’s the deal: We have been negotiating this to some extent and realize that we will not be able to please everyone.  We realize that not everyone will be able to work this into their schedules, as busy as they all are, but we would like very much to extend a welcome to the […]

Lance Platner

I don’t know if you guys heard, but Lance Platner was killed in a motorcycle/automobile collision over the weekend. Lance went to my church during our high school years. When I saw him at the reunion, he mentioned that he had hung a drawing that I had done for him in high school of a […]

It’s About Time for Another Video

First Tuesday of Novemeber

“It’s election day.  Help me.” Alright, here’s a little ditty to help things go a little smoother today.  Humorous…and at the same time makes me realize that on this day, more than any other, I want to be on something. Direct from our friend Lyle Lovett: Election Day. From My Baby Don’t Tolerate. He’s looking […]

M-M-Music Thursday!

Stolen from his web site: Christopher Willits is a musician and multimedia artist located in San Francisco, California. Striking a delicate balance between acoustic and electronic sounds and systems, Christopher manages to defy genre distinctions while still defining a “sound” unto his own. His numerous solo releases and collaborations cover a broad spectrum of musical […]
