Juarez



you would probably never imagine that Savannah's best Mexican joint is on the first floor of this building. tasty 'ritas and sizzlin fajitas for dinner tonight (yeah, ok, so that definitely sounded like a cheesy chain-restaurant slogan... i know).

actually, looks like it's time for a good pressure wash and a new paint job at the very least. i'm willing to bet that the moulding is about to fall to pieces too.

The Tunes...

No photos today, so I thought that I would share some of my favorite recent listening. Gotta have the good tunes flowing, in order for anything else in life to work properly. I wouldn't want to even try to list all of the music that i'm currently addicted to, but here's brief listing of the stuff that's really keeping me going:

1) Tortoise


The almighty Tortoise! I've been listening to this mind-blowing Chicago band for about five years or so. They just keep on amazing me more and more with each new album. Tripped out post-rock, free jazz, electronica, avant garde experimentalism, space-rock... whatever you want to call it. Tortoise simply defies description. Click the link above to visit their website and to listen to their most recent album - It's All Around You - in it's entirety, in cd-quality quicktime stream. I cannot praise this band highly enough, they always manage to outdo themselves.

Their first album (self-titled) was my Duncan's favorite album. Nearly every time that we played it, he would quite literally come in from wherever he happened to be at the moment, situate himself directly in front of the speakers, close his eyes, and just chill. What can I say... my boy had impeccable taste in music. The album will always remind me of him. :-)

2) MPR - The Current

I was just turned on to this station earlier today (and it looks as if it was actually just launched today as well), but i'm hooked already. Excellent, truly eclectic playlist - and from Minnesota, of all places. Stop by and check them out. I've been listening to their "CD-quality aacPlus" stream with Winamp for the past few hours. Have already written down a number of bands that I need to check out further. Over the past hour or so alone they've played Doves, Wilco, The Notwist, Smiths, The Postal Service, VHS or Beta, Joseph Arthur, Soul Coughing, T.Rex... very tasty indeed. Public Radio to the rescue!

3) KEXP.org

...and speaking of Public Radio... KEXP is possibly the best FM radio station in the entire country, and without a doubt one of the best stations streaming on the internet. Tune in here especially for John In The Morning (6 - 10am, PT, weekdays), and anytime DJ Riz is on - definitely be sure to strap on the ear-goggles for his "Expansions" show (9pm - midnight, PT, Sundays) - it's like audio-acid. Check out their "Archived Audio" section too, where you can stream just about any past broadcasts (archived by time and date), as well as any of their hundreds of live in-studio performances from bands all over the musical spectrum. If I lived in Seattle, I would actually listen to radio in the car.

...anyway, as I said before, I could go on for pages and pages here, but that's going to have to be it for now. Hope that some of you get the chance to check out the tunes. Enjoy!

very busy with thesis and other stuff at the moment. haven't been getting out of the house with the camera much lately... so here's an abstract shot for the time being. the source for this image was a stack of CDs with light shining through them from behind. just playing around, trying to break from the norm a little bit.

light steel #2


almost wish they would leave the exposed concrete and steel as part of the facade - it would have to look better than the bland, cookie-cutter, anywhere-usa, standard hotel crap architecture that it will surely turn into when it's eventually completed.

grumble grumble...
