A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Avatar 10:00am

@ Rock Ridge - if you like the board game, you might want to read the Kim Stanley Robinson trilogy because it's all about terraforming Mars. the books were probably an influence on the game.

I have a different vocabulary record set - but I like how this one swaps voices and the examples are pretty lively!

@sphere I'll do it. I've been needing something different to read. All these current events and nonfiction can be a drag.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07am

Is it just me, or are these vocabulary words too easy? But I'm in an editorial liine of work, so of course I would say that.

Webhamster Henry:

More Vocabulary records of a sort:


Trouble: Wee Simon of 8.5 was goofily reverbalizing yer "like, like, like.."
I was pedantically explaining that Trouble is intelligent and goofing and doesn't
really speak like that.."
Before I could finish he said to me - super sarcastically -

Listener Gregory:

I tried to make plans to see the Rothko Chapel in Houston, but it has been closed for months and will be closed until the spring (they hope) sometime. Renovations.

Rock Ridge: I get so much painful nonfiction in my life - I now (more or less) only read fiction - Still painful, but one step beyond....

@Listener Gregory: def worth the wait. the chapel and the menil collection are true head expanding zones

Trying to get motivated to go for a run. These tunes are instead motivating me to stay snug in bed.
Listener Gregory:

@thormagma, Yes, I will definitely go. However, I had the dream of going some place warm for a week this winter, and now I have to wait...

Has anyone checked out Third Man Records' magazine Maggot Brain? The inaugural issue has Alice Coltrane on the cover. It looks in line with Grand Royal, Arthur and early Wax Poetics. Has anyone read it yet? It looks legit but I'm always a little leery about "in house" promotion.
