Radio Fragments - Not so much post-post-modern as pre-post-post-post-modern

Does it strike anyone else as odd that the term 'modernism' is getting on a century old now, and that we use that as a sort of baseline against which to compare other social movements, ideals, and aesthetics?

Ok, maybe it is just me. So...well...here's some music.

Rocking Septuagenarians and Dancing Hands

Some Saturday videos for the fans:

From one of my 3 favorite record labels, here's Wanda Jackson feat. Jack White "Thunder On The Mountain" (for some reason, the black and pink microphone cracks me up).


Next, some creepily dispassionate hand-dancing as done to Yolanda Be Cool & D-Cup's, "We No Speak Americano"... I haven't seen faces that blank since (fill in your own joke here). Still cool, though.

Radio Fragments - On the mend

Wow, that was pretty unpleasant. Two weeks ago tonight I was getting pretty sick, one week ago my fever was up around 104. But now, finally, after a couple weeks, I finally seem to be on the mend, not fighting fevers, not nursing nasty abdominal symptoms... I feel almost like myself.

So back to the music! After a skipped week, I have tons of great music to play. Oh, and it turns out that the show before has a corrupted MP3 for the second hour, so by the time you read this, hour 2 should be fixed.

Yay music!
