The name Haskell always makes me think of how, when Wexler directed Medium Cool, when he's shooting the fictional plot line in which Robert Forster's character is in the middle of the real 1968 Chicago Democratic convention protests and shit starts to get ugly in the protests, you hear an off-camera voice from his crew yell "Haskell, this is real!"

No, check out some of the Abdullah Ibrahim big band things (guessing these are way out of print, have the old vinyl), he broke in with the loft scene in NY before he started doing his thing with the quartet, then Ekaya. Those records have a freewheeling and "out" feel (with his usual beautiful melodies) that he never returned with (think it had to do with the company he was keeping at the time, the free jazzers of downtown).

Absolutely-think Abdullah Ibrahim may be the jazz musician (if you want to call him that) that I've seen live more than any other. Even took my wife to see him on our first date at Sweet Basil's in Manhattan way back when. Haven't seen him in a bit, though, nice to hear he can still bring it to his shows.

@Marie: Maybe "animation". GIF is the file format, which supports animated frames. There are others that are technically superior, but the GIF format is so established, ubiquitous and universally accessible as to be difficult to dethrone and synonymous with this type of image.

Right, thanks. And yes it has, but a recent push to publicize the archive has been making the rounds. I always forget about it and then get reminded.

On first blush, that is outrageous and disgusting. The pension is probably going to support his poor wife. At least that's how I prefer to think of it.

Given how dependent my senior years are on a state pension, I am not in a position to do anything but agree when a pension plan is operated according to the rules.

This Anchors cut is deploying something quite similar to the Suprette beat made famous by the Emperors and other bands from the Harrisburg, PA, area.
