Sitting down for a long time isn’t magic. Neither is holding your breath.
This right here, with the cards and the vest and stuff? This is real magic. Eric Chien won the 2018 FISM Grand Prix with his Ribbon act. It’s a mind scrambler.
There is a little more grey hair than there used to be but they still kick.
That music they’re playing is called “rock and roll”.
Thee Oh Sees are an L.A.-based band led by vocalist and guitarist John Dwyer. I’d heard that the live show was amazing and my high expectations were exceeded. It was crazy. The double drum kits at the front of the stage made a great racket and whipped the sold-out crowd into a frenzy. The Broadberry …
Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup is the fascinating , and infuriating, story of Theranos, a Silicon Valley startup that promised a host of common blood tests performed from a single drop of finger-pricked blood on a machine that you could have in your home. It is exactly the kind of …

I’m on the record as anti-Pink Floyd. I find the songs that make heavy rotation on the radio to be insufferable and interminable. People I trust keep insisting that there is a lot of good music in that catalog and that I’m an ass for not checking it out. I’ve done some work on it and I came across this video from a 1971 recording they did of their song “Echoes”. It’s really good.
I’m still not a fan (and I’m damn-sure not getting any on my Classic Rock Playlist), but I’m willing to admit that I enjoy this performance of this song. There may be more to come.
Holy mackerel this is great.
Pre-hair-and-makeup Robert Smith is a damn handsome man and the band just *kills* this. I have to agree with the comments there at the bass line is the standout winner.
And, in a broader sense, I think people underrate The Cure as a band name. It’s gotta be top 50 All Time. And then that they had so many great songs? Damn.
I do enjoy a fun font.
Here’s another occasional “bucket of songs that caught Mike’s fancy” playlist. This was a fun 6 months of listening. Putting it together I got to relive my little trip from ambient music and fuzzed out drone to hip hop and 20th century country music.
There can be some jarring transitions from song to song but I am way into all of the songs on this list. Give it a listen, I hope you enjoy it.
