Back live Thursday afternoon, and I have a bunch of fun songs! The garage sales have been very, very good to me, and I have acquired some cool tunes for you all. Well, for me, and I am good at sharing. I recently got some new Paul Revere and Monkees music I never bought back in the 60's.
I also found some great retro rock and neo psychedelic stuff that sounds like the glory days of the 69-70 period, so I am going to sample some of that. And I found a song by a Columbia, MO band called Ditch Witch. I am going to pull out some 80's bands like Guadalcanal Diary and Green On Red. And I will have some blusey stuff to mix it all up into a tasty rock stew. Check my playlist out, and hit those dollar bins hard if you collect vinyl!
How do you manage a raw foods diet in the throes of a midwest winter? Why would you even want to eat raw? Does it take a lot of time? What are the benefits of eating raw? What kind of kitchen equipment do you need? Is it easy to find the ingredients to keep your raw food pantry stocked?
On our interview line from Minneapolis, Susan Powers will attempt to answer these and other questions from the inquiring minds in the studio. Susan is the force behind www.rawmazing.com, a very informative and inviting site dedicated to spreading the benefits of eating raw foods. We have been experimenting with several recipes from the site so tune in and taste the results with us.
My brain has a mind of its own, sometimes, and it's decided that this week the I.W.H. will salute "Thoughts Thunk While Thinking"
Songs of cognitive-dissonance and hemispheric harmony, songs of thoughts caught and released, songs about thinking things over and under, thinking twice or being thoughtless, mind games, mind over matter and minds that don't matter.
Tune in Tuesday, 11/3/09 at 8 PM, if you think of it.
Rebroadcast Friday midnight after P5K
Heather Derr-Smith was born in Dallas, Texas in 1971. She spent most of her childhood in Fredericksburg, Virginia. She received her undergraduate degree in Art History from the University of Virginia, where she also took poetry workshops with Charles Wright, Rita Dove, and Greg Orr. She went on to earn her M.F.A. in poetry from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. Her first book, entitled "Each End of the World", was a collection of poetry about the war in Bosnia in the 1990's and was published by Main Street Rag Press in 2005. Her second collection, entitled "The Bride Minaret" was published at University of Akron Press.
Please join Heather and Irving Toast's host Rustin Larson on the next installment of Irving Toast, Poetry Ghost, Sunday, November 1 at 10:30 am and Monday, November 2 at 1:30 pm.
BREAKING IRVING TOAST NEWS:
Irving Toast's host Rustin Larson has been featured in an issue of Pirene's Fountain http://www.pirenesfountain.com/folios/larson.html. Click here to read an interview with Rustin and to see a folio of writing from his books Crazy Star and The Wine-Dark House.
When the laws of physics are obviated, the universe disappears, and what is left is the tightly bound plenum, the monad, able to express itself for itself, rather than only able to cast a shadow in physis as its reflection.
From the way the gyre is tightening, I predict that concrescence will occur soon -- around 2012 A.D. It will be the entry of our species in hyperspace, but it will appear to be the end of physical laws accompanied by the release of the mind into the imagination.
Sunday November 1st
Rustin Larson, Host of Irving Toast, Poetry Ghost (Sun 10:30am; Mon 1:30pm) featured this month in Pirene's Fountain: A Poetry Journal
Any given Sunday or Monday, if your radio's tuned to KRUU 100.1 in Fairfield, Iowa, you'll catch Rustin Larson hosting his talk show with the quirky-hip title: “Irving Toast, Poetry Ghost.”
With an eye on creating a venue for poets, Larson spent several years in magazine publishing, but the venture ran its course. Still looking to showcase writers, he met with the KRUU station manager, who gave him free reign. “Irving” (the spirit of poetry who lives in the hearts of all) hit the airwaves in April 2008, and features live readings and interviews with new and established poets.
A published poet and writer himself, the five-time Pushcart nominee has authored three poetry collections, Loving the Good Driver (Mellen Poetry Press, 1996) Crazy Star (Loess Hills Books, 2005) and most recently--The Wine-Dark House (1st World Publishing, 2009). His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Iowa Review, North American Review, Poetry East, Atlanta Review and others.
Without waiting for the year to finish I want to share some of the creative music being made as we speak. This week's show features 2 tracks from Tosca's "No Hassle"--a creative gem from the Austrian duo Richard Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber. Their style might be categorized as chillout grooves, but that might also be too limiting. "Fascinating" certainly covers it.
I'll also play two tracks from Muse's "The Resistance"--a less-inspired, but occasionally brilliant album of political and social defiance--and anthems by Black Eyed Peas and Rascal Flats.
My favorite live band Umphrey's McGee released a creative studio album in 2009. This was a welcome release because their live vocals are so pathetically lame as to be virtually unlistenable (their fabulous musicianship and improvisational creativity more than make up for it).
Welcome Beloveds of the father of light
In thy light will we be light, for;
In Hymn is no darkness at all !
babylon big tree; rasta roots small axe
Psalms 50-59 Oblation
Apocalypse of Iesus Kristos chapter 21
Songs and chant psalms in between
Love, Brother I O E L
