Keith Moon was infamously uncontrollable in more ways than one. Apparently it was humanly impossible for him to simply play a consistent beat without adding fills and triplets throughout. His playing style was idiosyncratic and bombastic, but he had innate ability, so I guess if you’ve got it, flaunt it. And Keith, in the immortal […]

This year, we in Portland were cheated out of spring. The weather oscillated between winter and summer several times. Now, following the solstice, it’s settled into the normal pattern of unrelenting sunshine with occasional 100-degree heat. Luckily for me, the KPSU studio is in the sub-basement of the Student Union. The air conditioning is so […]

The music of Magma is evocative of an extraterrestrial collective intelligence’s algorithm for summoning the ghost of John Coltrane. J Church, a band named for a beloved light rail line, lamented the turnover of endless cycles of urban and cultural decay, appropriation, exploitation, and inevitable gentrified banality.

Liberté égalité fraternité. The ideals of secular humanism never more succinctly expressed. Imagine, allowing science to inform public policy… how quaint.

The Fermi Paradox is hardly so; to an enlightened consciousness, the solution seems self-evident. Roddenberry and Coon codified the Prime Directive, enshrined it in canon. And yet, isn’t it blindingly obvious that a Kardashev Type Zero civilization is of little interest to anyone out there? Furthermore, we should be grateful for our insignificance, lest new cookbooks be […]

DJ: Joshua Justice Shows: Static + Distance & Beyond Footnotes, Fridays @2pm; Cold Discovery Hometown: Waterford, Michigan   What inspired you to become a DJ?
