Although this blog has been all but abandoned for the past few months, I have still be snapping shots of arthropods. And of course, how could I ignore Rock Flipping Day.
Termites again make an appearance.
As do more traditional ants.
And finally, my best crawling friend, the millipede.
Tom Waits – Time: One of my favorite of his tunes.
Smog – A Guiding Light: Continuing a quiet start to the Random Eight.
Pigface – War Ich Nicht? / Amphetaminemethaamphetamine / Girls Are Cool: Live Pigface makes for wacky song titles.
The Afghan Whigs – Step Into the Light: From the great Gentlemen era.
Mission of Burma – Dust Devil: Still such a strong band.
Radio Thailand – Folk DJ’s Armed With Technology: The ever interesting collection of Thailand radio sounds.
Boredoms – 2008.04.03: Segment from one of Boredoms’ continuous, incredible shows.
Amon Tobin – Wires & Snakes: Ending the Random Eight on a bouncy note.
Dinos Chapman – Smeyes: Eerie little tune.
Arcwelder – Criminal: Louder with a distinctive 90′s Minnesota rock feel.
Beanfield – Planetary Deadlock: A mix between electronic and funk.
Boredoms – Chocolate *ut: Wacky drumming and yelling.
The dB’s – Bad Reputation: Going back to the roots for most of these tunes.
Robyn Hitchcock – The Yip! Song: Fun Hitchcock tune from my favorite era of his solo work.
Bash & Pop – Tiny Pieces: Fun post-Replacements Tommy Stinson band.
Quasi – White Devil’s Dream: Fun, very Lips-like tune.
Been so long, I’m happy to remember my blog password.
Underwater Culprit and the House of Assassins – Sunday Morning Coming Down: Which is funny as I just started having Jason’s tunes play in my head for no apparent reason.
Tobias Picker – Elegy: From a recent Soundgarden visit where I picked up a number of experimental stringed / classical compositions such as this one.
DJ Shadow – Organ Donor: Organ Beat Donor.
Pit Er Pat – Gated Community: Minimal bounciness.
Flaming Lips – Pilot Can At the Queer of God: These wacky old Lips tunes are still my favorite.
Joy Division – Incubation: Blowing the dust off this one.
The Disk Orchestra – Another G4 Production: I picked up this very peculiar album about a month or so; it is 99 songs (I think the “legal” limit that can appear on a CD), most of which are barely a few seconds long, that range from electronic music to strange noises. Together, it flows really well. Randomly, if flows very oddly.
Pixies – Where is My Mind: Good old Pixies.
Taken yesterday, about 36 hours before a projected mid-March snow storm, a blue bell is beginning to bud.
I don’t know if this is the same plastic flag I found last November, but if it was, if made its way across the wood to the bottom of a small stream.
Either way, it still seemed like an odd thing to find…and I say that with the knowledge that it is not uncommon to find frames of what appear to be kitchen appliances in the same location.
I decided to retrieve the flag from its submersion and stand it tall through a hole in a fallen tree. I felt like I had just planted a flag on the moon…somewhat.
Robyn Hitchcock – Raymond Chandler Evening: Quiet, acoustic Hitchcock.
Hawkwind – Upside Down: Noisy, proggy Hawkwind.
Kustomized – Air Freshener: A rather odd tune from the Mission of Burma drummer that kinda mixes MoB and Joy Division sounds.
The Kinks – Too Much On My Mind: When I saw The Kinks way back around 1989, this was the one tune played at the show I didn’t recognize. I finally happily found it on the Face to Face album.
Tom Waits – Bad as Me: Fun “new” tune after a rather long absence from Tom on the Random Eight.
Frantic Mantis – My Eyes Feel Too Large For The Sockets: And that is kinda what the song sounds like too.
Tomorrow is Already Here – Favorite Son: Good tune from my friend Garret’s first album.
The Replacements – I’ll Be You: The greatest rock band ever.

Something OffSomething Off
There is no hole deep enough to stifle the sound of protest
There is no man ridiculous enough to quiet the world
Maria Alyokhina must be freed
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova must be freed
Viet Khang must be freed
Tran Vu Anh Binh must be freed
Vladimir Putin there is something off in your world
Truong Tan Sang there is something off in your world
I hope so
Contemplating Silent Wishes
