FFO: Janelle Monae, Goldfrapp, Curtis Mayfield Los Angeles songwriter Kadhja Bonet brings her mischievous brew of torch-soul futurism to the Wonder Ballroom, opening for synth-pop chameleon Mitski this Sunday, April 9th. According to her Bandcamp biography, Bonet is 232 years old and her name sounds like kad-ya. On her most recent release, 2016’s The Visitor, […]

6’s  I haven’t re-listened to this show, which originally streamed live on the 6th of March, and here it is April Fool’s day as I am typing this out. So I’m not at all sure as to what I might have been talking about on this day almost 4 weeks ago. There is something; that […]

A brain is like tonsils: more trouble than they’re worth. This self-evident fact is given voice by the story of the stranger. He was tall, dark, and had a special look about him, as if he could see right down to the bottom of you. But little by little, the critics put us back on the […]

Sometimes it’s not so easy to differentiate mediated experience from direct experience.

Despite all evidence, inhabitants of the reservoir of video souls can’t imagine that they are robots. How ironic is that— a robot that thinks it’s a soul that wants to be a machine? We’ve been robots all along, and yet we may not live to outgrow those filking colours we’ve been flying. I don’t take […]

Memory No, no I’m not going to break into that god forsaken song from Cats. (say that reminds me, I say SEVERAL copies of the Unforgiven in the 4$ bin at the Walmart Neighborhood Market. I need to make a mental note to get back there) I’ve actually seen Cats. Saw it in, or should I […]
