bLiTzScReEd FrIdAy!!

- a smattering of some of the funcool stuff i've received recently:




- BB from NYC reminds you to pledge some dough to keep the world's best radio station on the air:



















Yo La Tengo + me + you = ?

Comrades - Jet Blue willing, for the umpteenth year in a row I will join Hoboken's beloved purveyors of melody, mirth, and 10 minute guitar solos as together we improvise your requests on WFMU in Jersey City next Friday, March 16th at 8 PM EST. Join us (either by broadcast signal at 91.1 or streaming live for your listening pleasure anywhere there's internet from www.wfmu.org. You can pledge from there, too.) as we attempt to play anything your generous pledge-making and music loving hearts desire for three incredibly stressful, exhausting, flop-sweat inducing/life-affirming, kitten hugging, madcap hours. Here's the official word from FMU's site:

Yo La Tengo return to WFMU for their annual requests-for-marathon-pledges fest on March 16th at 8 PM! Join hosts Pseu Braun and Gaylord Fields for an evening of off-the-cuff covers done up in the style of Hoboken's finest. Ira, Georgia and James will be joined by Bruce Bennett as they try to play pledger's requests. The whole thing will be viewable live in Windows format, via the WFMU webcam.

- AB in MI gives us a brand new & beautiful art form = frost catchers: http://frostcatcher.com/

































- KA in the UK gives us a Buddy Rich drum solo...check out that guy's left hand...just amazing:

NP: archiving Ghost Hunt interviews & investigation tapes from 3/3's Spook-O-Rama at Dun Giggen.

PEEVE DE JOUR: what's up with Blogger rejecting my posts 'cause of HTML screw-ups? it used to allow broken tags, etc....but now refuses to even save as a draft, let alone post.

JOIE DE JOUR: too early...nothing yet.

N.B.A.T.W.P.: there's a great show at The Living Room, 154 Ludlow (between Stanton & Rivington) on Saturday, 3/17. forget about the traditional St. Pat drinkdrankdrunk - do this instead:

7 Uncle Moon
8 Bob Parins
9 Chris Brown and Kate Fenner
10 Life In A Blender
11 Jesus H. Christ and the Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse
12:30 Rawles Balls

Great stuff, cb. Welcome back. Last night I was driving home from a rehearsal in Hoboken at around midnight. Didn't have any CDs to listen to, so I did a little channel surfing and came upon Q-104's Carol Miller and her nightly "Get the Led Out" block o' Zeppelin. I spent the remainder of the drive (Giants Stadium to my front door in Wayne) listening to John Bonham's solo from "Moby Dick" off the live "Song Remains the Same" LP. Truly amazing. Now today I get a Buddy Rich gem? This guitarist likes them thar drummers. What say you throw a Neil Peart clinic at us tomorrow?
