Japanese Funk and Soul

Hey, how are you doing?  Thought you might like this Japanese Funk and Soul on Vinyl (Late 70’s, early 80’s.). I thought it might be fun to dance to–youtube showed it to me.  Thank you, algorithm!  Yes, I was right.  It was fun to dance to. I like that the music was very new to… Read More »

rhythm

Hey, how are you doing?  I watched this youtube video that I loved.  Please consider viewing it: someone playing a 7/11 polyrhythm inside a 7-11 at 7:11am for seven minutes and eleven seconds? Hmm, amazing.  I went through a whole process, watching this video.  It was like.. Wow, this person. I wish this person was… Read More »

snotty nose rez kids

I heard some new music lately I thought you might like.  The most exciting thing was Snotty Nose Rez Kids.  Wow.  So much food for thought.  And great sounds, slick production.  I learn more about the conventions of hiphop and make connections among what I learn.  Feels fertile. This one Creator Made an Animal blew… Read More »

I am not brave

There’s this amazing music I’ve been listening to lately.  It’s by Rural Internet–the album is called escape room.  My favorite song is “I am not brave.”  I’m only three songs deep into the album, but I keep listening to them over and over, these past few weeks. I played them for Ming as we drove… Read More »

sacred rage

Hey, I’ve been thinking about sacred rage.  I had a friend who hated his coworker for her taste in music–insipid, bland.  Well, maybe he hated her for other reasons, but her taste in music sealed the deal. I listen to chill music, but I can listen to angry music too.  When I was a teenager,… Read More »

Then here’s another sky pic.  What do you think of these clouds?  Stormy!  So pretty!  That sunny part seemed like a magical light place, a portal to a bright world I could dream about. Then… Read More »

good music

“You listen to good music!” Ming said. “Thank you!” I said.  “There’s a lot of good music around.”  I was hearing this medicine in Spanish. “Look!  Jaguar!” I said.  “Snake!”  There’s a jaguar on the art for youtube.  Jaguar is special to me, for sure.  I’m nuts about snakes also. spiritual scientist I used to… Read More »

music and magic

I don’t usually use the word magic, but the talk was named by someone else, so I’m going with it.  Please see this video of me talking about music and magic, my practice run for the presentation I’m giving for the local UU pagan group. I might say something’s magical, like the magical parking lot. … Read More »

sacred song

I was listening to youtube and it went to this sacred song. I was like–holy crap!  What is this song?  I had not heard it in so long.  I totally forgot about it.  Years ago I listened to it all the time.  I guess the name is not that catchy for me to recall.  Maybe… Read More »

to my love

Yesterday I was feeling a lot of emotions.  Then for some reason I watched this video and heard this song, To My Love.  I like another Bomba Estereo song. It was very moving to me, to see the different people dancing, including kids.  Treating kids as valid people is moving.  I see it far too… Read More »
