ATTENTION STEVESTORY:

I occasionally go to the websites of some of my favorite musicians to see if they are touring anywhere near here.  I usually strike out and today was no exception. However, I was  interested to see that Iris DeMent is playing at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro tomorrow night (June 28).  If you don't have other plans, you should go see her.  As far as I am concerned, she is a unqiue voice in an increasingly homogenized music scene and is one of the best folk/country artists out there today.

For the rest of you, here is a video of her most popular song.

Shit. I don't usually check this thread. Totally missed the Iris DeMent thing. That sucks. I live less than a mile from the Cat's Cradle.

Probably my fault. I thought about sending you a PM, but didn't.  

As it was, my wife dragged me to see Chuck Mangione  at Jazz in June on Saturday night.  It wasn't completely horrible, although I could have done without the localized little thunderstorm that popped up and soaked us but good.

No, no, PMs are great. Lots of times I don't check on a thread--Lou FCD is moderator here now--and so PMs get to me quicker than other things. But Cat's Cradle often escapes my attention. Please send future announcements like that. BTW, I only know Chuck Mangione from King of the Hill episodes.

Judging from the Youtube comments, it mostly reminds people of dead loved one's. But maybe you're hearing something they aren't hearing.
But if you don't mind, I'll walk step back slooowly now, I'm a bit...scared. A bit of this medicine should emmm, fix that. To bad it's not the full version of the song, wich I really like better.
PS: Especially the solo from 3:22 is pure awesomeness.

My youngest daughter goes to Warren Wilson College, near Asheville NC. I drove her back to NC after Christmas break, just in time for us to catch Richard Thompson and his 1000 Years of Popular Music show at the Orange Peel (great venue).  

The show is a treat. In fact, any Richard Thompson show (acoustic solo or with his electric band) is worth seeing.

Soul legend Isaac Hayes dies

Quote
(CNN) -- Soul singer and arranger Isaac Hayes, who won Grammy awards and an Oscar for the theme from the 1971 action film "Shaft," has died, sheriff's officials in Memphis, Tennessee, reported Sunday.

Relatives found Hayes, 65, unconscious in his home next to a still-running treadmill, said Steve Shular, a spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff's Department.

Paramedics attempted to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m., the sheriff's department said.

For everyone, except Richard, I recommend the album "All the Roadrunning" that Knopfler cut with Emmylou Harris.  It's genesis was a Hank Williams tribute album called "Timeless"* where Knopfler and Harris collaborated on two songs.

*It also includes Williams covers by Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Tom Petty, Beck, and Keb' Mo'.

Warren Wilson is an excellent fit for her. Unlike her older sister, who is intense and driven (and found Bennington College a wonderful fit for her personality), Claire is laid back but accomplished. The school emphasizes academics, work (every student must have an on-campus job--that keeps the tuition 'reasonable'), and service (every student must complete a community service requirement before graduating). It tends to attract very liberal students interested in things like conservation, self-sufficiency (the school maintains a farm and raises much of its own meat and vegetables, and many students work it), international aid and activism of various kinds. So it isn't for everybody. The Sierra Club rated it number 3 in their list of "10 Coolest Colleges", but WWC also ranked number 2 in 'Reefer Madness" in the Princeton Review, LOL.

The campus is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and is just beautiful. Claire's starting her second year there, and loves it.

Since DVD's spin, this post is technically on-topic  :p

Watched the first 80% of Vertigo today. Was pretty busy and have guests coming up from south Florida including the missus so lots of things were happening. Anyway, saw about the first hour and 45 mins, but won't get to see the rest for a few weeks. Thoughts so far:

1 that brightly-lit san fran apt was gorgeous.
2 everybody drinks and smokes all the time Woohoo! NOM NOM NOM
3 i heard the cool vertiginous shot was a zoom plus a backward motion of the camera, but based on what I know of optics, it looks like a zoom out with a forward motion. I could just be getting the foreground and background confused, I'll have to see it several more times.

(to be clear, what I mean is, as the shot progressed, more background stuff seemed to fit between two foreground bits, while the foreground bits stayed the same apparent size. The first part seems to result from a forward camera motion--hold your hands out a foot from your eyes, then bring them closer--more background stuff fits between them--while the last part is accomplished by zooming out. Of course, I could be looking at the wrong shot. Some variant of that technique is used in 3 different places in the movie. There's the rooftop in the beginning, and then the stairs in the spanish mission much later.)
4 Jimmy Stewart's eyebrows looked like Michael Keaton's.
5 the monochromatic swirls in the opening credits had to remind one of Venture Bros.
6 Great brown suit on Stewart.

7. Hitchcock's obvious infatuation with Kim Novak. Look at the way he lights her, steve; he was hopelessly head-over-heels in lust love. C'mon, it jumps right off the film.

Back on topic: meant to toss an HT to RBill a month or two back for reminding me about Laurie Anderson's Mr. Heartbreak. I dug the CD out and spooled it up a few days later -- still highly listenable. For some reason that put me in a techno mood and that led to Come With Us by the Chemical Brothers, cranked up "one louder". And then the missus came downstairs and said turn it down, and down it went.

I saw/heard her perform the set that became the Mr. Heartbreak album live, with the band that is featured on the album, complete with William S. Burroughs (although I doubt Peter Gabriel was there) and all the images and multimedia. Big grin ear to ear the entire performance. And that was the first time I had heard her.
