2014 Q3 Spotify playlist


This is a Spotify playlist link to songs that Caught My Eye from June to September, 2014. It’s mostly pop songs, which isn’t a surprse, but there are a couple of odd ones in there too. It’s juuuust over three hours of good tunes. Give it a listen and let me know if you hear anything that grabs you.

I don’t hang out on new social media like I used to but I try to log in to all of them so I can lock down my user name.

So now I’m @falfa on ello. If you’re on there, hit me up.

Thanks for the hook up, Ethan.

Monochrome Raiders.


Steven Soderbergh posted, for educational purposes (ha!), a black and white version of Raiders of the Lost Ark to study “how all the various elements of a given scene or piece are aligned, arranged, and coordinated. Soderbergh also took out all of the original sound and replaced it with the score from The Social Network, which works surprisingly well.

There are so many things that go on and into a minute of a feature film that this is an interesting technique to use to isolate one thing for study. The black and white really shows off the pulpy-ness of this movie. Some of these scenes could easily have been shot in the 40’s.

My wheelhouse.


There are some nice choices in this most recent batch of Parra-designed clothes at Rockwell. That shirt in particular made me chuckle.

Sturgill Simpson – “Metamodern Sounds In Country Music”

I’m no proponent of country music, generally, but there is something about this album that has it in the heaviest rotation lately. This song is the one that sold me on him. It gets weird and not especially country in parts. The rest of the album is lyrically odd, too, but runs more early-to-mid-70’s musically. I love it.
