IT'S ALL, NOT ONE, I'LL LOVE EVERYTHING

Here we are at the last day of august!
the summer went by so fast, kind of sad.


i just found this Metric B side and was instantly in love:




i know it's already so humid, but please listen to the song and have some fun...




on the last days of warmth before the rain and gloom comes with fall.
also, take a leaf out of harley and selina's book and be sure to cheer up any friends if they are feeling sad about "sitting on the ground" day, like pam.











RECORD STARTS TO SKIP BUT IT'S PLAYING IN TIME

happy friday5!

Happy 75th birthday to actor/comedian/musician Steve Martin! He played a sadistic dentist in Little Shop of Horrors (1986). What’s your relationship with your dentist like?

i think my dentist is trying to rip me off.  he keeps telling me i need invisalign.  i'm thinking about getting a second opinion before jumping in... or maybe i will continue to ignore him and not get any invisalign at all.  once i asked about regular braces (cheaper!) but he didn't really encourage it.
(however, i do like my hygienist!  it would be hard to leave her.)

Happy 65th birthday to comic strip artist Gary Larson, creator of The Far Side! One classic The Far Side strip illustrates literally the Platonic allegory of the Ship of Fools, followed by an illustration of his own concept of the Car of Idiots. When have you been a passenger in a car of idiots?

once, after a long day of speech and debate, we were all pretty tired on the car ride back and talking kind of loopy.
once, i was in the opposite situation- on the way home from asm general meeting 2013, i was in a shared supershuttle from the convention center to the colorado airport.  everyone there was from the conference.  i was in a van full of geniuses!  similarly, whenever we have the biannual hawaii asm meeting pretty much, every important microbiologist in the state sits down for dinner together.  i always wondered what would happen if we all ended up getting food poisoning, it would make a great newspaper headline!


Happy 55th birthday to basketball player Ervin “Magic” Johnson, who spent his whole career as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers! What are your memories or impressions of Los Angeles?

LA is where disneyland is?  it's also where touché amoré is from and they are one of my favorite bands!  i always hope one day i can meet a famous person, let alone the creators of my favorite music.


Happy 50th birthday to actress Halle Berry, who plays Storm (a woman who can control the weather) in the X-Men movies! What’s the weather like right now, and if you could adjust one aspect of it for the weekend, what would it be?

SO HUMID.
here's what CARROT has to say about it:



Happy 32nd birthday to actress Mila Kunis! Which of these Mila films have you seen?
Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) NO
Extract (2009) NO
The Book of Eli (2010) NO
Date Night (2010) NO
Black Swan (2010) YES
Friends with Benefits (2011) NO
Ted (2012) NO
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) NO
Annie (2014) NO
Jupiter Ascending (2015) NO




here's fletcher c johnson with my favorite birthday song:

What’s your favorite song about a specific city?

safer in the forest/love song for poor michigan



this song doesn't mention a specific city but i feel like it counts because it's very location specific.

if you want to be nitpicky, ceremony has an album called rohnert park (a city in california) and i like their song MCDF... the marsh creek detention facility.




OR the fountains of wayne song, hackensack is great!  but this seems to be more about a girl instead of the city.





What’s your favorite song about a real, historical figure?

b is for brutus!!




What are your favorite song and favorite group (or solo artist) from the classic Motown era?

there are so many hits to choose from! can't help dancing along to:



i love this pipettes song that has a motown feel, what do you think? :D



i think i'm more of a doo wop or rock girl than motown.  i'll take the angels over martha reeves & the vandellas and frankie valli over smokey robinson!



i guess the happy medium might be little richard?  tutti frutti!





What’s your favorite song by a musician (or band) you really dislike?

a friend of mine thinks nickleback is the shit.  but i'm just not a fan.
i remember this song being played on the radio a lot:




at least it's more bearable than the "i wanna be a rockstar" or "photograph" song.


What’s your favorite song with the word “song” in its title?

i actually listen to the raveonettes the christmas song all year around because i love it!




but if you’re looking for something less seasonal, i also like the poor song (porcelain), a hidden track after modern romance on fever to tell




according to my itunes, this dads song doesn't have a high playcount but i can't resist adding it here because it's so meta:






HRF2015

* note: many links in this post for your enjoyment!


last weekend i was at #hrf2015
a record fair hosted by hungry ear records at mckinley high school cafeteria.
TONS of records to sift through, i had so much fun treasure hunting!
i took a selfie for their contest, trying to win these cool speakers:

hi from #hrf2015


it was on a table next to KTUH, who was broadcasting live from the event.
KTUH: http://tunein.com/radio/KTUH-903-s35800/
jelly's was there of course: http://www.jellyshawaii.net
and secret record store: https://www.facebook.com/SecretRecordStore
and lots of other vendors.
here's what i picked up:

#hrf2015 haul

so cool to find the heavy circles CD!  i love their song, henri.  got it as a single many years ago but never could find more on the band.  paul simon's son is part of this group.  from what i hear on nerdist podcast (can't remember the number... i think it was something from casa de queso episode?  or the donut muffin episode?  one of the hostful goodness episodes from around the early #100s, when i used to listen regularly. now, there are so many i can't really keep up!) this guy is a super cool dude.  i wish i could run into and chat with as many famous people as the nerdist crew does!

the calm blue sea album was also a great unexpected find!  i love the song mary ann nichols- it's in my top 100 played songs (and i have nearly 5000 songs).  i'm very glad to have the rest of this album in my library now.  i am super in love with the entire B side of this record, here's a bit of the song diaspora:

diaspora

more calm blue sea: http://modernoutsider.com/TheCalmBlueSea.aspx


i was mostly there just to see what i could find.
did NOT pick up:
tycho: awake, interpol: el pintor, tancred: capes, all: live plus one
but those were my other cool finds of the day.  decisions, decisions... in the end i had to put somethings back and those didn't make the cut. :(  maybe next time.
i was specifically looking for:
 school of seven bells: alpinisms, phantogram: eyelid movies, modest mouse: good news for people who like bad news, and jawbreaker: dear you
but didn't find any.
maybe another day, in another crate. :)

INSTANT TIME MACHINE!
