5-24-11 – 200 Blogs on WordPress (already) + Gutbucket + Pink Floyd SA-CD
Hard to believe it, but according to WordPress, I’ve already submitted 200 blogs to be published (with this one today).
Seems like only recently that WordPress was suggested to me by Jim Donato. No complaints about the service, as yet. Same or better than Blogger. The stats on this blog show the readership at a much greater number than the number of folks who comment on stuff. Yes, there are quite a few ‘spam’ comments to deal with as well.

Within the last month, I have moved towards only posting 4 times a week (instead of five). It’s true – some days, I have a hard time thinking of what to write about! Lately, I have been writing stuff very recently – compared to when it gets posted. Fresh thoughts!

A short while ago, we all went and saw a New York band called Gutbucket at the Redcat Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Good stuff! They vaguely remind me of my other favorite new group, Polar Bear. Is it jazz? Is it noisy? I really enjoyed the show, and I am enjoying their albums “A Modest Proposal” and “Flock”. The men of Gutbucket played all up and down the west coast recently.
I am so encouraged that there are ‘new’ acts for me to listen to and follow! Seems like I went quite a while without adding anything new to my palette.
Gutbucket are for fans of The Lounge Lizards (John Lurie), Polar Bear, Arto Lindsay etc. – you get the picture. Jazz that isn’t jazz.
I bought LP’s from them, so I don’t have any CD booklets that fit easily onto the scanner.

I recently read that Pink Floyd are going to make an SA-CD of “Wish You Were Here”. I hope they also make a DVD-A for those not lucky enough to have an SA-CD player. I bet it’s an amusing multi-channel album. DSOTM is a reasonably good multi-channel effort.
I was amused to read Nick Mason’s comments about it being “nearing the time when physical things like records will no longer be sold”.
Old enough to know better, so – cry, baby, cry…
