What time is it? Ask the Human Clock.
David Torn keeps appearing in my music listening ouevre, most recently in the form of Sun of Goldfinger, a trio with Tim Berne and Ches Smith. Here's the album teaser. You can buy the album on Bandcamp.
I've already pre-ordered The Bill Laswell Mix Translations of tracks from Sonar's Vortex album.
How about the teaser for Chat Noir's Hyperuranion.
And here's a live solo performance on piano by Jamie Saft.

And while I'm revisiting favorite themes, here's an animated map of U.S. population density over time.

The tiny archeologist in me (I wanted to be one in high school) loves discoveries like this untouched Mayan cave.
This article from The Aviationist, one of my favorite blogs, was the first I heard that the USAF is thinking about a fighter to replace the F-22 called NGAD, Next Generation Air Dominance. I just hope they build more than 187 of them.
|From the Aviation Pr0n category, here we see the first photo of the USAF's XQ-58A combat drone.|
In case you didn't hear, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (aka Star Wars Land) at Disney World and Disneyland in August and May, respectively.
The warty comb jelly (great name for a band) creates an anus each time it has to poop and makes it go away after wiping (i.e. transient anus - an even better band name).
I always say I should read more science fiction so the 2018 Locus Recommended Reading List will come in handy. Now if only my library's cloud app had any of these titles.
Your only job is to get in touch with it. ~Wilfred Bion
