The Looking Glass
This is a telectroscope near the Tower Bridge in London. There is another at the Fulton Ferry Landing in Brooklyn, NY. Between them runs a tunnel of immense length. At least that's the explanation given by Paul St. George, the artist responsible for this installation. Something tells me there's more than just lenses and mirrors at work here. The gist of it is, you look in one end, and you see people looking back at you in slack-jawed wonder from the other side. Something in this object resonated deeply with me. It made me wish I had gotten to look into one as a kid.



Propers
Big ups to Brigid Ochshorn, who has been passing on to me many a great bunch of tunes as of late, including a new Limp Lungs cassette. Woot. Check out Brig's show on Thursday mornings, 4-6.



New Music
Spring is in full effect, and it's awful. I'm getting ready to spend the next 8 months sticky. Ratatat is doing their best to ease the pain. This is "Mirando" from the forthcoming LP3.



1 So It Goes
2 Can't Take It With You
3 Mullinax

Roppongi's Ace was the first band with whom I worked in the Live Music Studio at WMNF, assisting Stephen Hammill record them for air on Scott Imrich's Saturday Asylum. I'm not sure of the date exactly. It was sometime in February of 2007.

Wheezing and Honking
Here's a WAV file of Brian and I laughing about Jerrad hurting his neck shopping for a television: alstrlaugh.wav


The Show
Spring has sprung. Memorial Day weekend has been kind to Alastair and Jerrad. The guys are well rested and ready to share their gut feelings about the new Indiana Jones flick, steam-punk intercontinental communication, the limits of propriety vis a vis corporate mascots, and a boat load of good music, including School of Language, Ratatat, The Mae Shi, Santogold, The Black Keys, Brainiac, Man Man and more. Thanks for listening.
