i know i’ve mentioned how much i love the Radiolab podcast before.  it’s a lifesaver at work, when i spend hours organizing and filing.  i know this one specific episode is from last august sometime, but i just got around to listening watching it today…and it’s beautiful.  part 16 of the “moments of death” show: a film by Will Hoffman (of Anyone Everything), exploring moments of life.

absolutely wonderful.

**check out the rest of the videos/images/words/everything on the anyone everything site.  they’re pretty fantastic.


i’ve been a listener of Radiolab for a while, but recently, it’s been a savior when i’m alone in the conservation lab or collections storage for long hours at a time.  it’s great to listen to music, but after 4 or 5 hours, sometimes i’m just ready to hear actual voices and conversation (regardless as to whether or not the conversation is actually with me…eeks)

so, today, i was working on boxing and tagging some objects, and was listening to an episode of Radiolab called “The Loudest Miniature Fuzz”.  it was a short that just focused on the music of this brooklyn band called Buke and Gass.  buke = baritone ukulele, gass = guitar/bass…the two instruments played by members Arone (fem)  and Aron (masc).

so, anyway, i’m listening to this podcast, and they start playing some of their music, and i LOVE it.

it’s like, math-rock  but not math-rock meets some strange folk thing meets god knows what else.

it’s incredible….and i cannot wait for their next full-length to come out (their old album can be purchased on their bandcamp website)

the one song that really stuck with me from the podcast was one called “two frogs”.  i think it’s planned to be on their next album, but dear god, i can’t stop thinking about it.

someone put it up on youtube as a clip, so take a listen. unghhhhhhh.

Plastic surgery…dogs, Schnauzers, Pitbulls… shoes, shoelaces…chateaus…sunglasses, Blublockers…rivers, lakes, fields…Africa, elephants…astronauts… money, muscles, the moon, Maine…rings, roads, rats, the color red…the sun, kids, ants, honey, Egypt…all kinds of things...

oh hey…
