i once did a double-take on a headline about Stephen Hawking that said "AI Could Spell The End of the Human Race"...

I sent it to a friend and he suggested we'd be alright because I can't spell.

    Welcome! I'd give your comment a badge but I'm fresh out. From your description you would think that you're not too keen on anything domestic.
    Speaking of international music, you ever listen to Tom Ze?

I love Tom Ze' ... crazed stuff. brazil is a bit of a pandora's box i've been peeking into the past several years... bring a 6 pack over and i'll play you a bunch, and a bunch more...

Light in the Attic released some amazing reissues by Marcos Valle a year or 2 ago, which may have gone a bit under the radar, but they are FANTASTIC, and long overdue for release in the States. check out any of his first albums from the 70s... "garra" might be my fave, but all are solid.

this 3LP just arrived in my mailbox this week, almost in time for my birthday, and what a present indeed...

KILLER NY band. incredible drummist from the Dazzling Killmen, and 2 cats who went on to another favorite band of mine, The Psychic Paramount...

avoid if you're not into instrumental avant garde music...

start w/ the 2cd discography if you're into it... some samples:

and some psychic paramount... so menacing:

play loud... enjoy...

hey hubski, i decided to make the sales guy sweat it out 'til year end...

thanks for the welcome. i told steve i'm more of a lurker/luddite/troglodyte on social media these days, not really making good use of the medium...

but i'll try to check in here and there... as steve mentioned, i'm prone to opine on a few topics...

international psychedelic music (all kinds of music really)

international arthouse / thriller / noir / etcetera cinema

international cuisine

international political economy

(in that order... actually not likely to say anything about the last one these days)

i'll be around.
