Hey Jack. You know, I've never seen them live...

long time ago, but I've seen them 3 times: well worth the effort

Hoboken Jack:

I saw them once several years ago in the less friendly confines of Terminal 5.

and then there was John Cage

Mornin' to all fellow night owls. Thanks for the Godspeed. I'm excited for live shows again. Seeing Dead Can Dance in October, with fingers crossed...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am

I might go to a show later today... First I need to figure out how to get there though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49am
Brian D:

Good morning, Dan. Yes, some return to normalcy. Seeing "some" of the Mekons later today.

Last weekend I read "Finding The Raga", a really interesting book about Indian music. Now I'm reading "The Master and Margarita", hopefully I'll get more books next week, including Kenny G's one about UbuWeb. And there's a new Colson Whitehead coming next month...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06am
Brian D:

Funny, Fred. I just read a review of a new bio of Ravi Shankar. Master and Margarita is worth the read.

dan in wisconsin:

Currently reading Haruki Murakami's Kafka On The Shore, and there's a beautiful zen rock garden library that factors into the story. Here in Spring Green, Wisco there's a slightly kitschy tourist attraction called The House on the Rock. It's where the carousel dimensional portal from Neil Gaiman's American Gods is derived from. That Raga book sounds great.

Murakami is an avid vinyl listener too. Take a look at his official website for a small photo tour of his writing desk and album shelf. Dude has thousands of records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13am
Brian D:

Murakami rules. My favorite of his is the novella After Dark. Tons of music references in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am
Brian D:

Spoiler alert. FBI officials believe the train derailments in the Pacific NW of the US are related to an "environmental terrorist" group that's linked with native tribes in the area: www.theguardian.com...
