today’s tunes: nineteen hundred and eighty five

a sailor on the Sunfish Forum was looking for help determining the age of his Minifish, and posted this hull ID number. 


the last 2 digits indicate the year the boat was built: 1985. 

makes me think of this groovy number by Sir Paul, himself no stranger to the Sunfish sailboat!

today’s tunes: a hand to take hold of the scene

I learned about this band Okkervil River from the old independent radio station WOXY out of Cincinnati.  as is often the case, I prefer the live, and in this case acoustic, version of this song to the original album version.

 When we’re so far from right,
When we’re losing the fight,
When we are letting the light weaken its beam
Oh, oh, Is there a hand to take hold of the scene?

today’s tunes: fell on black days

holy crap, Chris Cornell died last night in Detroit after a Soundgarden concert at the Fox Theatre.

Soundgarden was a huge band for me back in high school.

plus Cornell’s work with Temple of the Dog and later Audioslave?

this man just pumped out great music.

I’m a bit floored.

updated with a video from the show last night: the day I tried to live

today’s tunes: undertow [Lisa Hannigan]

another great tune and incredibly cool video from Lisa Hannigan – this song is called “Undertow”:

in a strange twist of fate, it seems that my favorite band, The National, has some influence on Lisa, as Aaron Dessner of The National helped Lisa on this latest album.

I found the video via NPR – they have a neat article about the video, you can read it here.

There’s a bit of magic in this video. It feels as if time is moving backward — in part because of the slow motion, but something else felt reversed, too.

read the NPR interview for more details and a spoiler.
