Topics I've Started

Favorite groups, artists or styles at the moment?

27 June 2013 - 10:51 AM

Okay, so I'm a musical fanatic, as you'll learn soon enough. I'm curious to know what everyone is into, currently? My tastes are rather complex and vast, but at the moment, I'm really enjoying the latest Iron & Wine record, 'Ghost on Ghost.' It's of course no 'Shepherd's Dog,' but there are a few great ideas on the LP, including the infectious 'Low Light Buddy of Mine.'

Studio Killers have an intriguing debut out this year, self-titled. Be sure to check out the fun and vivacious 'Ode to the Bouncer.' Notice the Pink Floyd references in one of the bridges.

I'm also enjoying the odd and eccentric Mojo Juju. Her self-titled solo debut released in 2012 is a great throwback for a modern day blues record. Highlights include her fantastic 'I Put a Spell on You' and the great 'Full Moon on Budapest.'

I can offer plenty more suggestions if anyone wants a specific genre or style, either new or old. Looking forward to reading what others enjoy.

Mama's Family on DVD?

27 June 2013 - 10:35 AM

So, I know there was an edited season or two distributed by Warner Bros. a few years back, but of course the entirety of the series has never seen an official release, which is rather unfortunate. Anyone else an incredulous admirer of this old program? It was always a favorite of mine during its heyday. Hopefully a company like Shout Factory or Lionsgate picks up the licensing for it someday.  

Music Sub-Forum?

Forgive me if I've missed the area itself or any adventitious discussion in relation to music, but I'm quite the music 'nerd' and was thinking about the benefits of including a dedicated corner for it somewhere.

The Prose Locker #1: Vietnam 101

27 June 2013 - 10:23 AM

This is going to be an ongoing series of my prosaic poetry for anyone who may be interested in that sort of thing.

'Vietnam 101'


Fifty-five years into a Christian'd century, a group of vegetational cultivators fuss over the colonial colonel who's breaking his back in order to breed defense from their Buddhism; their tent-pole is of course weakened by the knot of an American noose.

Four million pairs of sandals were exchanged for leathered high-tops, but it did not increase the height of any particular point of view. The eternal message was a mimicry--the worst kind of scream--quickly annihilated by the whispered demands of its opponent. Any movement to aid the king would perish for the sake of mercy. Their gift is in dehumanizing their involvement; they publish their children into the foreground in hopes of steering the barrel from their father's mothering protest.

Johnson sat plotting on presidential bones, but starved the story of its importance. The billion dollar paper chase had just begun--flaring its blond arms in front of a series of drawn stars, as if to communicate peace to the Earth's accountant. Genocide... permanent and penniless, though profit still preyed upon by the predicated pilots of Rolling Thunder.

The last life to lose was taken by a boy who was born in a draft--the color of communism forever foreign to his eye. The Western region would later warrant a rescue; ready to die, it finally fell victim to an impenetrable poet who spoke through a camouflaged radio. He, alone, collapsed the camaraderie of united sons--his hallucinogenic effect tying their shoelaces to the leg of a Vietnamese pig.
