what happened to the comp cd? i dont know whether im just getting old (a distinct possibility), but record labels used to put out fantastic comp cds, showcasing their entire catalog of talent to receptive audiences. i have fond memories of vagrant’s life on the streets series (the 2nd of which is still the best) not to mention asian man’s consistently awesome mail order is fun. my dad...

its a trap! and also apparently political day here at short moves.
state of the union
given everyone’s zeal and, especially here in oregon, penchant for recently produced bumper stickers declaring only one more year of squinty eyed bush oppression, you’d think his final state of the union would have been a bigger deal. but alas, not so much. no one really paid any attention, myself included. i didnt watch it, only this morning taking the time to read some articles and...
featured music friday
so here we are again. to be honest im surprised i even made it to week 2, but thats beside the point. anyhow, on the roster today we have coconut records. now, im not going to lie to you, this was not my first choice for this week’s piece. however, the song i wanted to put up (hey momma by kay kay and his weathered underground) was having some trouble uploading. if youve got an extra minute...

life lessons gleaned from live free or die hard
using the phrase ‘…they’ve got my daughter’ will immediately get you whatever you want. when nypd officer and automotive sharpshooter john mcclane runs into jurisdictional troubles with the snarky beaurocrats at the fbi, all he needs to say is this one magic phrase and they automatically comply with whatever he wants. when goofy hacker guy (kevin smith? really?) refuses to...
featured music friday
so ive decided to start a new installment on this here blog. its called ‘featured music friday’ (cause the alliteration really just pops). so hopefully every friday i’ll be posting a song by an artist that ive been into a lot lately. this isnt really meant to show how hip and the cutting edge i am by posting about some band nobodys heard of called the tomorrowbots or something...

im famous again! as usual, henry covers the primary season with equal parts level headed context and hard fact. the only way to lend more gravitas to his argument was his mention of me. well played.

c.s. lewis, aldous huxley, and john f kennedy all died on the same day, nov.22 1963. weird.

Tumbleweed Houses →

recently i started watching lost. i didnt do it at the behest of people ranting how great it is, nor did i do it because i saw the first three episodes when they aired and then forgot to be home at a certain hour every week following (honestly, how do people do that?). i did it because my girlfriend streams them online while she works and i happened to be (un)lucky enough to wander in one day and...
i need a job more than ever because i just looked at the lineup for the portland jazz festival and the big timers are: the bad plus, joshua redman, and maceo parker. tickets are like 40 bucks a day. damn it.
well heres the requisite pundit post. as most of you know the great state of new hampshire had its presidential primary last night and the winners were ..(drumroll please)…john mccain and hillary clinton. the losers, of course, were citizens of every state but new hampshire, criss angel (for unrelated reasons), and tonya harding (because in order to seal the victory, hillary had to steal...
hi internet. i need a new laptop, keeping in mind several facts: im a recently graduated college student (i.e. my funds are, shall we say, limited), my comp knowledge (while not completely plebian) isnt all that it should be, i wont be demanding an outrageous amount of this new acquisition (some writing, some recording, etc), but seeing as i dont know where i’ll be in the next few years,...
If a “club” says no re-entry, what is the point in putting a bracelet on your wrist after you pay the cover? — millerthekiller
as promised, some highlights from home thrown together. i kept forgetting to bring my camera places so this is woefully underrepresentative of the stuff i did.
yes i know what you all were thinkin, ‘surely he’ll eventually foster relationships in the real world, or at least stumble ass backwards into a job or something that will otherwise occupy him and keep him away from blogging’. well joke’s on you cause thats far from the case. wait…damn it. anyways, i was in texas visiting the folks and friends for a few weeks and...
