Moving Mountains is right! That was pretty epic!

Hullo Brian, Scott67, Mariano, all! That was the coolest thing I've heard from Mountain Movers.

Am looking forward to Godspeed playing White Eagle Hall.

Hey Jack. You know, I've never seen them live...
  3:51am luc_m:

long time ago, but I've seen them 3 times: well worth the effort
Avatar 🗒 3:57am Hoboken Jack:

I saw them once several years ago in the less friendly confines of Terminal 5.

Mornin' to all fellow night owls. Thanks for the Godspeed. I'm excited for live shows again. Seeing Dead Can Dance in October, with fingers crossed...
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:48am fred:

I might go to a show later today... First I need to figure out how to get there though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49am Brian D:

Good morning, Dan. Yes, some return to normalcy. Seeing "some" of the Mekons later today.
Avatar 4:50am dan in wisconsin:

ooohh....I love Mekons. Ghosts of American Astronauts is a fantastic track.

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:05am fred:

Last weekend I read "Finding The Raga", a really interesting book about Indian music. Now I'm reading "The Master and Margarita", hopefully I'll get more books next week, including Kenny G's one about UbuWeb. And there's a new Colson Whitehead coming next month...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06am Brian D:

Funny, Fred. I just read a review of a new bio of Ravi Shankar. Master and Margarita is worth the read.
Avatar 5:07am dan in wisconsin:

Currently reading Haruki Murakami's Kafka On The Shore, and there's a beautiful zen rock garden library that factors into the story. Here in Spring Green, Wisco there's a slightly kitschy tourist attraction called The House on the Rock. It's where the carousel dimensional portal from Neil Gaiman's American Gods is derived from. That Raga book sounds great.
Avatar 5:10am dan in wisconsin:

Murakami is an avid vinyl listener too. Take a look at his official website for a small photo tour of his writing desk and album shelf. Dude has thousands of records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13am Brian D:

Murakami rules. My favorite of his is the novella After Dark. Tons of music references in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am Brian D:

Spoiler alert. FBI officials believe the train derailments in the Pacific NW of the US are related to an "environmental terrorist" group that's linked with native tribes in the area: www.theguardian.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55am Brian D:

Thank you all for your patience and listenership. Hope you enjoyed the music. Stay safe and have a great Sunday.
