It’s Almost Like XRT

So being in Bloomington, Indiana the armpit of America the radio station selection is bleak. However since Lizzy does nothing with her life but play on  http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/  she discovered this little  lovely station,  Minnesota Public Radio  The Current. At first  I have been skeptical of  Lizzy’s obsession with the Internet because it causes her to get nothing done and stay up into the wee hours of the morning close to when I get up for practice but this is a definite plus to her narcoleptic tendencies.  So check it out, http://minnesota.publicradio.org/radio/services/the_current/, it plays in itunes or I’m sure other music players.

PBS, You Rock My Face Off!

As the temperature drops (along with my bank balance) I find myself confined to home on a more regular basis.  Seeing as how I have little to do on a blustery winter day I turn to my TV to entertain me.  But since the ol’ girl only gets 5 channels it is no easy task to keep me satisfied.  That is until my dial flips to PBS, it is there that my thirst for knowledge is quenched.  Throughout the weekend I was able to see a Bob Dylan concert, numerous cooking shows and, quite possibly my new favorite show, History Detectives.  So if you haven’t tuned in since Sesame Street I suggest you give it another go.  PBS is sure to please no matter what you’re looking for.

It’s All Gone Pete Tong

Based on the true story, this movie follows the life of legendary DJ Frankie Wilde.  This story starts with Frankie at the top of his career which takes a quick shift to a downward spiral.  Diagnosed as being deaf is only one obstacle that Wilde will have to overcome to rise to the top again.  Shot in a documentary type style one gets the feel that these events actually went down.  The beats alone make it worth a watch.

A-Jax – New Favorite President

A-Jax
I was recently talking to someone about their favorite president and couldn’t really think of who mine would be.  Today, that question was answered with these posts.  If these are all true, then Andrew Jackson was a real badass (If you can look past having slaves, hating the indians, and some other trivial stuff).  I am not advocating deciding court cases with a pistol duel, but if the USA network has taught me anything (and it hasn’t), its that I love drama and action.  And the A-Jax Story is full of it.  El Santo at Rooktopia has done more research on this topic.
