Quote of the Day   Leave a comment

Stephen Colbert “On Friday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and New York Governor, uhm, I want to say one of the Cuomos, Harpo?, announced that both states would enforce a mandatory 21 day quarantine for anyone who has come in contact with Ebola patients, even if they have no symptoms, which I hear, is the first symptom, leading to the immediate quarantine of a nurse returning from Ebola stricken Sierra Leone, Kaci Hickox who, after landing at Newark airport, underwent hours of interrogation and when a forehead scanner recorded her temperature as 101 degrees, authorities left her in the room for another 3 hours.  Still, better than flying into LaGuardia.  She was then taken to University Hospital in Newark and placed in a luxurious tent structure outside with a port-o-potty, no shower, and no connection to the outside world except her iPhone.  Big deal, throw in a space heater, a sixer of Labatts, and you’re basically ice fishing.  Unfortunately, she used her iPhone to gripe to the media about her forcible imprisonment.”

Hickox “I have been asymptomatic since I’ve been here.  I completely don’t understand it.  It is not based on any clear public health evidence and it’s not the recommendation of public health and medical experts at this point.  This is an extreme that is really unacceptable and I feel like my basic human rights have been violated.”

Colbert “Human rights?  I’m sorry ma’am, but the Constitution does not say the you have the right to endanger your neighbors, unless it’s with a gun.”

I just got back from local music radio show 36 on internet only WBKM.ORG. It was a grey rainy day today, so I went with that mood

Song before: Hasn’t Hit Me Yet – Blue Rodeo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I had a great time at Radio Bean‘s birthday party Saturday. I saw a ton of great music. I want to thank everyone who put it on, especially Joe Adler. He and the Rangers Of Danger played a great version of this song. This is The Mime on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) The Mime – Joe Adler and The Rangers Of Danger
2.) Mississippi River – The Dwellers
3.) Catskills – Alpenglow

I’ve enjoyed seeing Alpenglow a couple of times this summer. That song reminds me of driving through the mountains of New York, just across the lake from Burlington. Gabrielle Douglas used to play Mississippi all the time. It would be great to have her come back and play it again for us. Next up, let’s play the next song on Alice Austin‘s To A Star In The Yard. Having a degree in economics and or personal relationships will help you with this song.

4.) Laissez Faire – Alice Austin
5.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
6.) This Is Our Good Night – Aya Inoue
7.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara

Hana just won the Advance music singer songwriter competition. Word has it that she really impressed some people with that song. Aya sang some soaring vocals on a song in Dripline’s set at the Bean birthday bash. I’ve seen her occasionally, over a few years, and am always happy when she’s on the bill, because I’ve always had a good time when she plays. Maryse had a good set at the Bean, though it was buried by talking and coffee drinks. She persevered like a champ and played a sweet version of Good Thing when the audience quieted down. Swale had a great set at the Bean, and played a killer show the night before Halloween. They opened with this:

8.) Armadillo – Swale
9.) High On A Good Day – Chuch
10.) If The Sea Won’t Rise – Sean Altrui

It was fun checking out Sean’s album for Halloween. I liked this song so much I wanted to play it today. Chuch have been around for a while and that’s a pretty cool song. Swale will be part of the Lou Reed tribute night at The Monkey House on Saturday. It will be fun. OK, time to rock. Here is a brand new song from Black Rabbit.

11.) Mark My Words – Black Rabbit
12.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees
13.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
14.) Projector – Vetica

Per Andrew from Vetica, they have broken up. Rats! Hopefully they will put something new together. Per Facebook, Poxy are no more. Rats! I hope they put something new together too. The Cave Bees just played a killer set at the Bean. They are probably heading to Texas soon, maybe we’ll get lucky and they play another show before they go. Black Rabbit singing about JFK. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
