WITB This episode of Box of Chocolates originally streamcast live just last week, was another fractured two hours. The amazing part now, is that I’m actually (sort of) caught up to date on my show postings, well for current shows anyway. This first hour was an aural look into a What’s In My Bag from Amoeba […]

Friendship This show, originally streamcast on the 12th of November was two separate playlists dedicated to two different friends. I had recently found out they each had happened to be listening to me live, and had been thinking about them that week. I wish I could have played the Dan Band for the Carlos hour […]

W, this show is about W. As a intermittent series of playlists structured around alphabetic primacy The blog post about this show is actually the beginning of a lengthy post concerning writing. It will told in several parts. W _________________________________________ Sometimes I wonder if this isn’t just a fantastic series of meaningless words. Well, the words […]

    Another round for my dark companion The view from here is crowded now, I raise my glass My doppelgänger Smiles at me From across the room The great social issues mean less than nothing to the national pests On my TV screen I will wear only black and white and hide in the alleys […]

In memoriam of Peter Principle, I present to you the lyrics mysteriously omitted from the liner notes of Tuxedomoon’s exceptional postpunk album, Desire. Was the following verse, repeated twice in the song “Jinx”, considered dangerously existential sufficient to trigger censorship? Or was it merely a transcription error? Occam’s Razor says the latter, but the truth […]

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. The historical context was the post Dot Bomb 1.0 era, […]

Liberté égalité fraternité. The ideals of secular humanism never more succinctly expressed. Imagine, allowing science to inform public policy… how quaint. Thanks to the Internet, the France-centric view of art history is expanding, and that’s a good thing. Dr. Yo’s Magic Lantern is not for everyone. Discontinue use and consult your doctor or witch doctor […]
