Love that picture on the deep tracks blog below. Shimmy down the road a bit with me today as we cut a deep groove on nineteen tracks. The Grateful Dead, Canned Heat, Little Feat, and Creedence Clearwater Revival set the tone. Plus The Shags, The Lemon Pipers, and Elvin Bishop of all people. Guaranteed to make you feel like you just gotta move around.... The G Man

Kris Johnson's greenhouse provided some fun fall surprises at this week's LIVE Great Taste show. Kris grew and harvested mixed greens and strawberries (that's correct strawberries the first week of October). Sheila Higgins, baker/cook extraordinaire, added the creative element, turning out sorrel soup, a tangy dressing for the greens, and some showstopping quinoa mini cupcakes.
In my early days in Chicago(mid-eighties) once I coughed up the lucre and bought a car, I came to Fairfield fairly regularly...once or twice a year at least. These days my life is as complex as the next feller's and I don't make it to the Hawkeye state as often as I should. I will be flying solo(no wife in tow) to Iowa several times in the coming months to fulfill family obligations. And I couldn't be happier. I will only make it all the way to FF for Thanksgiving weekend. But that means I get to see the Xmas lights on the Square. And that's about as good as it gets in my book.
Two to Four A.M. tomorrow morning, with a replay Monday morning at 4 A.M.: We're Jammin'. Orange Peel, The Paperhead, Creepy John Thomas, US 69, Psychic Ills, and Johnny Winter all contribute some great vamping for the nighttime. Also an unnamed track from Paul Kantner, blues from Siegel-Schwall and Hiss Golden Messenger, and The Host Country takes us out at the end of the show. Playlist on the left column, enjoy. Cool Breeze

The Filmosophers are avid Tim Burton fans and have been anticipating his new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children for months. "Tim Burton's love of ornate visuals and dark whimsy hasn’t always jibed with the mainstream, but with his adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, he’s tackling a property that’s not only squarely in his wheelhouse, but has enough of an audience to encourage hopes for a blockbuster." - RT. It's not getting outstanding reviews but we like it when reading lines like: "Miss Peregrine' is the perfect brand of peculiar for Tim Burton." - USA Today. The story includes "a girl with a maw of sharp teeth in the back of her head, a boy with bees living in him, an invisible kid and a headmistress can turn into a falcon."
This weeks expressions of the golden age of documentaries include Danny Says. "DANNY SAYS is a documentary on the life and times of Danny Fields. Since 1966, Danny Fields has played a pivotal role in music and "culture" of the late 20th century: working for the Doors, Lou Reed, Nico, Judy Collins and managing groundbreaking artists like the Stooges, the MC5 and the Ramones. DANNY SAYS follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to the Warhol Silver Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to "punk pioneer" and beyond." "Music buffs will want to see all these now-famous folks in their obscure early days. But they'll come away admiring a man they've barely heard of before." - LA Times. Also: Harry & Snowman "Dutch immigrant, Harry deLeyer, journeyed to the United States after World War II and developed a transformative relationship with a broken down Amish plow horse he rescued off a slaughter truck bound for the glue factory. Harry paid eighty dollars for the horse and named him Snowman. In less than two years, Harry & Snowman went on to win the triple crown of show jumping, beating the nations blue bloods." "Davis' film is a disarming underdog story that doubles as an animal-rescue advocacy tool." - Hollywood Reporter
We'll talk about this, another intriguing animated film and more on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions. -"Because our abilities don't fit in the outside world, we live in places like this, to keep us safe." - Miss Peregrine
