It’s about -70 degrees here tonight; I’m surprised I even came in. Who knew Southern Illinois could get this cold? I guess it is cold enough that all of downtown has been experiencing intermittent power failures, so there is apparently a very real chance that I will type something amazingly transcendent, only to have it vanish during a blackout.
Oops, it just happened. Right when I’d just discovered the language of the gods, too. Oh well.
Anyways, I kicked off tonight’s show with Mammal, and what has to be one of the heaviest tracks I’ve heard in a long time. No, it’s not strictly experimental, but I really get a kick out of how the sound is allowed so much breathing space. Right now, I’m playing some of The Transhumans disc “Into the Maelstrom,” which has the right sort of intensity for following both Mammal and Tuft. Not sure where I’m going after this, but I doubt it will be in the same direction.
Or maybe it will be! Got sidetracked on a technical phone call– somehow, word has gotten out that I’m “the podcasting guy” at the station, so now everyone wants to know my arcane process. Had to let The Transhumans roll– luckily, I really like that album. Moving on to the Ctephin side of “Sand of Ages” now… I have the feeling I need to cram in a bunch of new stuff, ugh.
Resisted the urge– I’m happy because Karthik dropped by. All thanks to Mama Karthik for driving him over… it’s way too cold for walking. No download this week, due to random computer failure. Ha, ha– some guru I am!
