Catch Some Heat Rays ~ “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun” ~~Music Theme

Ahhh this Music Theme selection process was nearly derailed twice. First by the film Sunshine and then by the ever delightful Doctor Who. Yep, I almost gave up all control and followed my slacker heart straight to full video view-ville. Making blog posts is a funny job and someone has got to do this one–moi.

Doctor Who 42  [As in 42 minutes to keep a spaceship from going straight into the center of the sun.]~ scene 14. There were several scenes I could have posted with exciting music, but I decided on this one because of what The Doctor learns and the rest of us ought to consider every time we take that great big sun in the sky for granted.

When There Is No Sun  ~ Sun Ra ~ And if there’s no sun what do you do?  Tough to grow your veggies for sure. Nothing for all those methane producing cattle to chew on either.

Sticking it to Edward S. Curtis–with a grin.

After a depth charge of “Mao’s Guilt”  by the Brothers Gao and a few other random dark thoughts still frying in my brainpan, I figured a  little something different is in order. Something light but with some attitude.  So here’s a small reality check for Edward S. Curtis’ “Vanishing Race.”  Some fun from Smoke Signals that–well–hey you don’t have to be Victor & Thomas to seriously ask–“Hey, what’s with John Wayne’s teeth?” Ever watch his mouth work like it’s geared to his hip action  from movie to movie?

Then, in a cheeky tribute to Rhonda of Native Spirit Radio on KKFI, I’ve tuned into what seem to be the best audio versions on YouTube of  “NDN Kars” by Keith Secola and the Wild Band of Indians.  My search was for audio good enough to understand the lyrics without a text so if you desire some other images you can take your pick from YouTube’s selections.

 Still can’t resist the “point of it all”: Hey, Edward S. Curtis, these people look vanished? Sure sounds like “NOT!”

Everyone have a laugh and dance a little!

no speaky speaky = mimes!

Improv Mimes

In the most unlikely places and at the most unexpected moments delightful surprises appear.  Much to my wonderment on Saturday the still new “crepes on the square” was invaded by a mime troop. Much in opposition to popular belief, high school age young people can and do indulge in creative and interesting pursuits beyond the idiot boxes in such aboundance.  Their high top black and white converse tennies were the first thing I noticed moving past as I relished my first bite of a banana & nutella crepe.  Following those passing shoes upward I found the nearby table surrounded by six white gloved young mimes engaged in silent yet very animated conversation.  It was impossible to resist making efforts at mime chat. Hence I discovered that some of the mimes have a band–yes–a band. “Dear Lucille” –yes, named in tribute to Lucille Ball. “Dear Lucille” plays 1940s & 1950s music. They claim their music is in the vein of Elvis.  Who am I to argue with Lucy the Mime?

“Dear Lucille” features the talents of Lucy, Mikayla & Nobian. Oh and their lead singer goes by the name of Alexa Putnam.

Play with “Dear Lucille” at  http://www.wix.com/dearlucille/dear-lucille

Check out some Lucy lovers at  http://www.youtube.com/scascencio

Indulge your food fetishes at  www.crepesonthesquare.com

Mimes: Lucy Ascentino, Mikayla Stuber, Nobian Henan, Austin Chapman, Kayleigh “Sherlock” Cox & Linnea Nierman. Heads up, Kansas City,  they plan to invade the Plaza in two weeks.

Laugh, mimes dare you!

Take note of the mime wearing the bowler, Lucy, because she intends to become as famous as Lucille Ball. Remember that you saw her here first!
