RUNNING WHEREVER RATHER THAN IN CIRCLES
Rock and roll update: I went to bed pretty early last night after reading some more of Justine by Lawrence Durrell and making grilled cheese sandwiches.  I went running, down Tracy Avenue past Rockhurst, over to Paseo and up 55th, all the way to the trolley...

ON THE PROWL FOR SOMEWHAT MARGINAL CINEMA
If I've learned one thing, it's that I'm happier if I go to the movies at least once a week. Yesterday I winged it and went to a Tamil film called Papanasam that was showing at the Cinemark out on Antioch.  It was a unique movie experience for me--everyone ...

THE LAST ISSUE OF MOJO MAGAZINE ON EARTH--IF IT IS INDEED EARTH!
I've had one issue of Mojo magazine since Christmas, a cool stocking stuffer. I am still absorbing it and checking out artists reviewed in it, and it makes me reflect on how much new music there is and how one Mojo per year may be enough.  Just one random M...

GRASS, STONE, AND MISSOURI PEA GRAVEL
This
used to be a humpy slope draining right into our basement. The kind of
yard you'd pass out in at a college party and wake up covered in bug
bites, most likely alone.  Then it was a raw dirt site with a new wall by Jason Nace and Lime Green Masonry a...

STORY/SONGS
I've been on kind of a music fast lately, after we signed up for Audible.  A couple of good friends swear by Audible and I am now hooked as well.  On my daily drive I have listened to A Fifty Year Silence and The Invisible Bridge.    I've listened to music ...

The Concave Man - demo
This came about in a unique way: just a single note keyboard pattern was the foundation for the whole thing; keyboard drumkit-sounds and layering and words coming along later. In the global scope of weird, this song is not that weird, but for me this is pr...

DOG DAYS OF SUMMER
The dog days of summer are upon us, and good times were had sourcing canine vehicles and watercraft at The Troostwood Garage Sale. Here is a song by KC band The New Babbons that has been permanently lodged in my head since I heard them perform it Friday: Ne...

IN BRIEF
I can only contrive to have something interesting to blog about this morning, as life has had a grinding quality better suited to milling buckwheat flour for the war effort than to making artful observations about much of anything.   I am doing the right th...

POTENTIAL SLOW FILM DAY
Winslow Homer: The Wittling Boy If I leave the house today, I kind of feel like seeing a slow art movie.  I hope there is one in town.  Maybe something about a postman in rural Ukraine who wittles.  A lot of the footage wood feature wittling, or preparation...

A WALK
When we lived in Old Hyde Park, on Baltimore, we were pretty close to Westport and a lot of other things and I miss that, but we have some pretty good walks in Troostwood too.  My current favorite is up and over 51st through UMKC and down the hill past the ...
