Stumped, Sank, and the mix for 11-16-18

One of the benefits of working on a college campus is the library and the friendships I have built with various librarians. I check out music but today I felt bad about it. This was the 11th album I have gone to check out and the second time in six months that I asked for a thing that is marked as being in the collection but is absent. I feel like a bad troublemaker.

There was no blog last week because I was up on the north short visiting Split Rock lighthouse. Each year they light the beacon to commemorate the 1975 sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. It is a good ceremony if you have the chance to go.

This is one of the busiest weeks of the term for me, so not much else to say and out of time to say it. Here are some picture of the trip north.

Restricted, Included, and the mix for 2-16-18

It’s been a good music week.

First, I enjoyed putting this mix together. It spawned at least two offspring. When way leads to way, it’s a sign of doing the right thing creatively.

Second, I went on a music adventure. Recently there was an event at the library on the campus. I learned that not only do I have access to several streaming music databases, but I was educated on how to browse effectively through the catalog for physical media as well. In my hunting about I discovered that the library still has a bunch of LPs. Further, these LPs are kept in a locked room. Beyond that, I am friends with the librarian who has access to this Restricted Section. So, yeah, I got to go to a restricted room in the library basement to paw through the LPs. I’m sad to say that of the two I was looking for, one (10th Century Chant in Proportional Rhythm) was not in the stacks as promised. So I set in motion “the kind of thing us librarians live for” said my friend. And I still checked out two albums. Rest assure, they are the good weird stuff.

Third! This week saw the publication of Volume 3 of Memoir Mixtapes and I am positively chuffed to say that a piece I am proud of was included! Please check it out. Along with this publication has come a renewed sense of interest in writing and a flood of new twitter followers (which I don’t think has ever happened to me before). I hope you will read this publication and enjoy it.
