Salsa & Xanadu

June 8, 2012

Yup salsa and Xanadu. This morning I was thinking, “salsa excites me.” I’m sure that revelation is triggered by the fact that my garden is in full tomato producing mode and I’ve been making lots of fresh salsa. And within the very same thought frame, Xanadu popped up. Roller skating disco-ed out visions of Olivia. Electric! I can’t really explain their connection … except love and obsession perhaps! Now that I’ve got you thinking about it, here’s a kickass Xanadu video and a yummy salsa recipe.

Morrissey, as a member of The Smiths changed everything.  One of the greats.

Can’t wait to see their recently released documentary, “Shut Up and Play the Hits!” The trailer has me all intrigued.

I so love the vibe of their website.

David Lynch

November 16, 2011

David Lynch has a solo album!? Sure enough, and it sounds just like you think it would. Crazy Clown Time sounds like it is just waiting for a film to be made for it.  Pitchfork has an interesting review of the album plus music history about David Lynch. He held a make-the-video competition for two of the songs, “I Know” and “Good Day Today” and you can check out a lot of the finalist (and winners) on youtube. Here’s the official winner for “I Know.” This should be a mandatory own along side your Twin Peaks, Lost Highway, Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, etc. …

The banter between Kiss and Paul Lynde is priceless.   And Florence Henderson’s song … well, she’s like scoring the full size candy bar while trick or treating. 

Grace Jones

October 14, 2011

I could watch live performance videos of Grace Jones for hours. What makes that first video even better, is the fact that she’s 62. That woman don’t play!!! The tiger scene in the next video … let’s just say, wish I was there. Another rad version of “Slave to the Rhythm.” This last one is with Iggy Pop. So wrong and so awkward, yet, so good!
