PHENOMENA!

It's frosty this morning, and there's gonna be a buttload of snow coming our way, so why shouldn't things be weird around here? This morning we've been visited by this fly that seems fearless, and it doesn't move when I tap a pen right in front of it. It just keeps staring with those million fly eyes. And then there's this thing:





Is it a worm? Is it a piece of plastic? It looks organic, and I aint touchin' it. The fly is missing now, so we don't have a picture of it. Sorry. AND NOW THERE'S GONNA BE SNOW! Sheesh.

HAVE WE LEARNED NOTHING FROM THE ELECTRIC COMPANY?

I heard someone say this when looking at an average sized book: "It's so thick! I only have FIVE WEEKS to read this!"

Seriously, people! When did five weeks become an unreasonable time frame for reading a book? It seems like the biggest concern some people have is whether or not the book is longer than 200 pages. At any given time I have at least two books that I'm reading, and I friggin' love it! And some of them even have more than 200 pages!

So for all you folks out there that dig the written word, here's some stuff I've been reading lately. Admittedly it is heavy on the pop culture, but that's how I roll.

HUBERT'S FREAKS
by Gregory Gibson

This is the story of Bob Langmuir, a rare book dealer that stumbles across a foot locker that holds a collection of memorabilia related to the legendary New York attraction called Hubert's Sideshow. The footlocker apparently was owned by the man that ran the place for a few years. Also in the foot locker was a collection of previously undiscovered photographs by Diane Arbus, who spent an important part of her career documenting the people that worked at Hubert's, and it turns out the man that owned this trunk was the middle man between her and the Sideshow folks.

The story is about Bob, but it is also about Arbus, as well as the world of sideshows. In addition to that, it is about obsession and how it can destroy a person. The book also gives insight into the art world, and you find out just what on earth makes an image valuable.

UPDATE: The author left a comment on the blog! Thanks, Greg! Also, if you would like to see the actual photos, they are being auctioned on August 8th in NYC. Take THIS LINK and you will go right to the page for the auction.

THE TEN CENT PLAGUE: THE GREAT COMIC-BOOK SCARE AND HOW IT CHANGED AMERICA
by David Hajdu

There was once a time in the history of comic books where they were regarded as the most significant menace to youth in this country. The leading critic of them even went so far as to declare they were worse than Hitler. Thank goodness time brings perspective.

This is the story of the comic book witch hunts of the 50's, and the industry and lives it changed forever. My favorite part of this story involves EC comics, and its publisher Bill Gaines. EC put out some of the most influential and creative comics of its time, and as a result it was right in the bull's eye of the scare.

The Ten Cent Plague is a great read for fans of comic books, as well as people interested in American History.

WAX POETICS ANTHOLOGY VOL. 1
by Wax Poetics Magazine

I'm a full time music geek, but there are some genres where I consider myself a novice, despite my affection for them. Mainly Jazz, Funk, and Hip Hop. That's where Wax Poetics comes in. This is a friggin' great magazine, with amazing and informative content dealing with all those genres, but it also gets into the art of DJ'ing, digging, and production. Plus, the photos kick ass, too. Every issue is a treasure trove of information, and I never finish one without feeling like I've learned something.

This book reproduces some of the magazine's great interviews in the exact form they were presented in the magazine, complete with discographies. Even though I have never heard of 95% of the people in this book, I know that by the end of it I will feel the urge to collect their entire bodies of work.

This is a great book, but spendy at $39.95. The magazine is quarterly, and is higher priced, but worth every cent. You can check them out at waxpoetics.com.

SWEAT: THE STORY OF THE FLESHTONES, AMERICA'S GARAGE BAND
by Joe Bonomo

Another great book about another band that should have been huge but never seemed to catch a break. The Fleshtones are an amazing band, and one that I fell in love with from the first moment I heard them. Then for about 20, I lost track. In the last four years they've put out some of the best music of their 30 year career, and now their history has finally arrived.

Sweat is at times inspiring, at times heartbreaking, but it is always a great read. It is the hope of everyone at the Shuffle Function Conglomocorp that we will some day scrape together enough cash to have a dream double bill of The Fleshtones and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy right here in Mankato. All we need is the cash.

So please, will one of you folks out there with cash read this book and become inspired enough to realize this dream? Thanks in advance.

EYE MIND: ROKY ERICKSON AND THE 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS
by Paul Drummond

The 13th Floor Elevators were a great band that could have become unstoppable if... well, if everything that happened to them had happened exactly the opposite of how it went down. LSD, mental illness, poor management, and a crummy record deal: All the trademarks of a classic american music story, but with seemingly more of all of those things to a ridiculous degree.

Reading this you will understand exactly how Roky ended up such a mess. It's a tough read, because the whole time I was really rooting for them, but they were either screwed at every turn or were screwing themselves. You aren't going to be inspired by this, just heartbroken, but it is still worth the read.

If you wanna be inspired, read The Fleshtones or Wax Poetics book. Or maybe The Bible or Hunter Thompson.

Alright... you only have five weeks to read something. What are you gonna do?

one more thing I'd spend money on if I had a million dollars

A few weeks ago some of the hippest bands and film makers converged at SxSW (that's South By Southwest) for a weeks worth of geeky bliss. The "Most Awesome Radio Station (Other Than KMSU)" WFMU was there for the first time, and hosted some amazing acts. When I read that one of their bands would be HALF JAPANESE, my jaw dropped. We play them on the show all the time, but you may have caught the brilliant documentary about them as well, 'Half Japanese: The Band That Would Be King'. Or perhaps you remember the nights when Mankato's own The Rythmaplex Project covered the Half Japanese song 1,000,000 Kisses. If this is not ringing any bells for you, here is a montage of clips from that film that will wet your whistle and leave you wanting more.



WFMU has posted the complete Half Japanese SxSW show on their blog, and I strongly suggest you give it a listen. You can find it here:

http://blogfiles.wfmu.org/JI/sxsw/Half_Japanese_-_SXSW_full_set.mp3

They performed a cover of the 13th Floor Elevators song "You're Gonna Miss Me", but I have been unable to find any video of that performance. You can however hear it if you listen to the full show. I did find a clip of them performing "Firecracker".



Jad and David Fair of Half Japanese are inspirational to me, and with the KMSU Spring Pledge Drive coming up, they serve as a reminder of great bands you would never, ever hear on commmercial radio. Long live Free Form Radio stations like KMSU and WFMU!!

THE SHUFFLE FUNCTION 24 HOUR PLEDGE DRIVE A-GO-GO: 2008!


THE SHUFFLE FUNCTION
24 HOUR PLEDGE DRIVE A-GO-GO

April 10th, six p.m. - April 11th six p.m.
KMSU 89.7 fm or KMSK 91.3 fm
Available online @ kmsu.org

Spring is upon us, true believers. Temperatures are becoming bearable, snow is thawing, and the KMSU Spring Pledge drive comes to you and asks for your big time financial help.

Every Spring Shelley and I throw ourselves at you and broadcast LIVE for 24 hours straight, with NO SLEEP, and only the basic human needs of CAFFEINE and ROCK AND ROLL keeping us going. Why do we do this? Why do we beat ourselves into radio submission, reducing ourselves to drooling pile of radio funk? Because we believe in KMSU! We believe in KMSU so much that the misery of depriving ourselves of sleep for 24 hours straight is nothing... NOTHING compared to the misery of a world without a radio station like this in the community.

If you listen to KMSU at any point during your day, then you know that this is a station that provides you with something you can't find anywhere else on the radio dial. The honest truth is that radio like that cannot exist without the financial support of our listeners. We really hope that your belief in this station and its place in the community and on the radio dial is great enough that you will make a donation to keep it alive.

The pledge drive starts on the 9th of April, so there will be plenty of time for begging, and sonnets, and sermons about virtues of KMSU and community supported radio. We'll save them for the drive. We just hope you'll tune in during the 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-GO and give your support. We have a bunch of stuff planned, and we have some unique swag all lined up to hopefully convince you to part with some of your hard earned cash. We'll get into it all later.

Right now, all you have to do is mark your calendar and start your training. Sleep is for suckers and commercial radio, true believers!

It's part of the Spring Pledge Drive, and we hope that you guys will take a stand and pledge your financial support to keep truly independent public radio alie and well in Southern Minnesota.

PAL'S SUDDEN SERVICE

Hello Shuffle Functioneers -
If you have caught the morning show as of late, then you know that I am about to take off for a quick weekend in Tennessee. I will be seeing my neice Sarah perform the ballet Giselle, catching up with my sister AND DRINKING LOTS OF SWEET TEA. My favorite beverage in the world has got to be the Big Teas available at Pal's Sudden Service in the Tri-Cities area of Tennessee. Here is a link to their web site, where you can drool over their menu and gawk at their incredible drive-thru architecture: www.palsweb.com
I was going to bring along my recoding equipment and get some audio of the Pal's experience, but these gals beat me to it!!! Before you watch, a few things to note. The accents. I am not exaggerating mine now am I?!! And check out the size of the teas. Now that's what I'm talking about.



I will be flying back to Minnesota next Monday, hopefully with an armfull of vinyl, a drawl, and stories about Sweet Tea. The moring show on Monday the 17th is taped due to my absence, but Tuesday we will be back into the swing of things.

Shelley
