How did I miss this? The last show I saw before moving back to Winnipeg from Vancouver in 2003 was Blur, and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to: a mature band, at the tail end of their run, in perfect form, running through an extra-long set of their best, in […]

Leslie & The Badgers

March 11th, 2010 · Comments Off

My co-worker Kevin (@kevinguenther) introduced me to the Black Harbor this morning, a “collective exploration of Art & Design”, where he discovered the oh-so-lovely Leslie & The Badgers, as showcased above.  A nice way to start the day! Leslie reminds me a little of another of my female singer-songwriter heart throbs, Jenny Lewis, seen here […]

The Stone Roses, reissued.

May 28th, 2009 · Comments Off

One of my most treasured albums, and a sure sign I’m older than I care to admit, I see that The Stone Roses are getting ready to re-issue a 20th anniversary edition of their classic,  monumental self-titled album from 1989, “The Stone Roses.” To celebrate, I offer one of their best songs, on my Top […]

Tonight we get a rare night out to re-live our youth at the Oasis show. And a bonus! Ryan Adams (I hope he does “Sweet Carolina”). I found these stubs while cleaning up in the basement this morning. Here’s to 1995!

With a new school year hiding on the other side of this long weekend, and the official beginning of “clients start calling” season, I offer a last hurrah, a doozy from 1978: “September,” by Earth, Wind & Fire. Do you remember the 21st night of September? Love was changing the minds of pretenders While chasing […]

R.E.M. Hollow Man

May 7th, 2008 · Comments Off

via Motionographer I feel like I’m watching an animated David Carson layout from 1996. And that’s not a bad thing, because Michael Stipe is great. We saw R.E.M. play in Vancouver in 1995 (with Sonic Youth) and then I had a chance to chat with him at my grad show in 2000. Still waiting for […]

For Once In My Life, Stevie Wonder

November 1st, 2007 · Comments Off

Was watching Entourage last night (most addictive show on TV), and they ended the episode with Stevie Wonder’s classic song, “For Once in My Life.” I immediately scoured my Stevie Wonder greatest hits CD for a listen only to discover it wasn’t on that album! A quick visit to the iTunes Music Store scratched that […]

I must have a dozen tracks of various ilks that rely on this drum beat. From Wired blogs, here’s a link to a history of the famous beat.

Do good.

June 19th, 2007 · Comments Off

I came across two unrelated pieces of media today that share a common story: the unsettling activities occurring in the Sudan. The first is the Amnesty International / Yoko Ono project entitled “Instant Karma: The Campaign to Save Darfur,” a collection of John Lennon covers by contemporary artists, including REM, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lenny Kravitz […]

Good Design (and Music) Can Make The Everyday a Little Better

July 7th, 2006 · Comments Off

Kottke makes note of IKEA’s latest effort, taking it to the streets of NYC. But it seems to be an extension of some stuff they presented at ICFF this year. (ICFF) Too much fun. Along the same how-did-I-miss-this? lines, a fantastic album I came across this morning, Mylo’s “Destroy Rock & Roll.” Also, be sure […]

Long Live The Prince

March 13th, 2006 · Comments Off

Brit Awards 2006 Performance Yes, he’s getting older, yes the outifts are questionable, and yes the posing can become tired, but man, this guy is an amazing musician and performer. The last Prince album I owned was “Purple Rain,” but his Brit Awards performance (leagues ahead of anyone else that night) reminds me of why […]
