Obvious World ~ Sunday Nights ~ 9e/8c/7m/6p ♥

RROut of the eleven songs I am playing Saturday morning starting at 2 AM, seven are of the extended type. Lots of opportunities for vamping. Interkosmos leads off with Hypnotizer from their 2009 release. Then Aguaturbia does a cover of Crimson and Clover, the old Tommy James hit. After comes Tear Gas, Et Sans, Grey Daturas, Wicked Lady, and Morly Grey, not to mention Entrance and The Dino Saluzzi Group from a 2014 release of wonderfully improvisational jazz. Yup, all that in just two hours. Cool Breeze

Des Moines' Hole in the Wall Smokes it at Green Building Supply

Zach Gutweiler and Bruce BalesIt’s thrilling to go along for the ride when the driver knows exactly how to reach the destination.  Cruising along the culinary highway with Chef Zach Gutweiler and his associate, Bruce Bales last week at Green Building Supply was a trip designed with lovers of food in mind.  Every turn featured a different view of the food landscape, each pause in the action for a bit of talk yielded tiny morsels of information easily adapted to the home kitchen, and the different destinations featured surprising flavors coaxed out through the application of creative techniques.

Iowa from Hole in the WallI was already totally sold when Zach said one of his dishes was called “Iowa,” named because its major components are staples of our landscape-corn and corn flour.  After those two ingredients the food map stretched as far away as Japan and Italy including a faux dashi broth, miso, kale pesto and trombocino squash before landing locally again with cultivated oyster mushrooms.  

Always looking to enhance each element, and employing a “nose to tail” philosophy even with vegetables, Zach smoked the mushrooms and squash by wrapping them in scorched corn husks and baked the little packages in the oven.  (Normally Zach would have actually smoked the ingredients, but without a hood to suck up the smoke he had to take a slight detour.)  A non-vegetarian version of the dish was made by using bacon as the smoky component.

The Filmosophers Movie Talk

If you'd like to see the celebrated film The Lunchbox on a big screen, the FairfieldFrank poster library will be showing it free, Friday evening. Doors open at 7:00, film starts at 7:30. "The Lunchbox" doesn't offer easy solutions, but it is filled with keen observations. All 'meals' should be this satisfying." - Detroit News.

Starting Friday at the Orpheum Theatre are two noteworthy films: Lucy . "Luc Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal, who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic."

But then, IMO it's the regeneration of the Sacred Feminine that's bringing in this Golden Age, so not surprisingly, most females are already "evolved beyond human logic."  :)

Also at the evolved Orpheum, the celebrated indie: Frank. "Funny, clever, and endearingly unusual, Frank is an offbeat comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal)." "Frank transcends its quirky trappings with a heartfelt -- and surprisingly thought-provoking story." "Frank has a wry sense of humor, the ring of authenticity and glimmers of genuine wisdom." - Newsday. Chris Busch has seen this and his review will be of interest.

We'll also cover new releases, what we've seen, some fall movie previews if time permits and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have fimosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM Central; again Sunday mornings, 11:30. "There are more connections in the human body than there are stars in the galaxy. We possess a gigantic network of information" - Professor Norman, Lucy

What Are We Generating, That's Worth It's Weight In Gold?

G Man'We've lost ourselves completely, in these modern times'- The Host Country. Powerful lyric couplets that are contained in the song Modern Times. 'We'll have a child, to show life's true meaning, the child runs wild'- Richard Hawley. 'Close your eyes and feel, the only way to tell what's real'- Rick Ray. 'This is family, this is unity, this is celebration, this is sacred'- The Sadies. 'I can see a lot better now'- The Moondoggies. 'Spend my days in my room, wondering...'- The Sufis. 'Tell you what I'm gonna do, give her space to get on thru'- Rick Reinhart. More of an accounting of the time we spend and how we spend it. The G Man

Flight Facilities(See link to play list). The program begins with 1969 track "Stone Circle" by Third Ear Band, an underground band rarely ever heard by anyone anywhere. DJ Andy Bargerstock (a.k.a., UndergroundMan) shines the spotlight on the trio known as Flight Facilities (photo left with singer Giselle center), an exciting and mysterious Australian band labeled as electronic-dance music but taking us well beyond the confines of their airport theme. Listen closely for track "Clair de Lune". Other featured artists include Trippfinger, Bhi Bhiman, Mollie O'Brien, Mudd & Smith.  The traditional 2nd hour chill session will take you to ethereal spaces yielding delight and contentment.   Share with your friends worldwide and invite them to listen via live stream at www.kruufm.com .   Click here for playlist.  Program originally aired 1/16/13. Some say Fringe Toast is the best music you never hear!... unless you are tuned to KRUU-FM.
