Talking Heads - Remain in the Light. And what a masterpiece it is. The whole thing sounds like one complete composition. There is some great guitar playing on it and I just took a look at the credits...it's Adrian Belew!

it's on again Poly!
this proto-King Kong is so freaking great to my ears!!!!!!!!!
some of this (the horns) ended up on Lumpy Gravy but there is much more other detail here and lasts longer and is just an outtake -- with a Tom Wilson voice-over at the end,
my copy may arrive as early as Monday and I'm drooling

here's a link to an article on the struggle for women's rights in Iran.
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=100039579
I heard it and remembered B's reading of Lolita and Alice in Wonderland, which is what this teacher has been teaching in Tehran.

I read a lot of articles like that... thing is, all is never what it seems there. For instance, the veils and kerchiefs have enabled women to go to college, which parents before would often forbid because of the contact with men. Nowadays there are more female than male students in Iran.
...which doesn't mean I think it's OK that women are beat up when they wear clothes that reveal anything besides hands, feet and face, while men only need to wear something to cover up the pelvis... or that women are legal adults at 9 while men are legal adult at 15...

yes!
It's so interesting to me how different underlying assumptions about people (ourselves, each other) can have such far reaching and profound effects across a culture and then how different it seems to other cultures.
For instance, Mike Phelps the swimmer got in trouble here for getting caught on film smoking pot.
The underlying assumption of the culture here in the states is that it's illegal and dangerous: even knowledge of it (what it's like) it is thought, can be dangerous. But because there is this stigma to it, I think, more people who wouldn't normally try it, will try it like Phelps, simply because our culture looks down on it and they want to know for themselves what it's like.
Whereas in Holland, where it's legal, there seems to be more of a feeling that it's a waste of time that could be dangerous. But that's not the official cultural stance there. Just as your attitude or feelings about that issue is at odds with the wider (legislated) culture, Phelps wanted to try something (probably peer-pressured) that his wider culture has always been telling him not to do or think about.

So in Iran and Saudi Arabia et al, the cultural repression toward women is so deep that as you say, they have to wear head coverings in public or they'll get beat up for exhibiting that slip, that lax of male control. This on the face of it seems so at odds with western culture and yet stems from the same idea. Just a matter of how far it is taken and in which direction. They're both rigidly patriarchal societies.

The big breakthrough is with our minds. With knowledge or awareness of another point of view, there's no telling what people might do. That's where progress comes from.

I'm listening to http://www.marketplace.org . Never thought I'd ever pay this much attention to business and economic news. Glad I started a couple years ago.

anyway...


I am listening to Charles Mingus' Epitaph. I guess it was a 2 hour composition that he did and was lost until recently.

It's really good.

My wife's in the kitchen, making a birthday cake with her very loud Kitchen Aid mixer.

And my daughter's in there too, trying to drown out the mixer with a CD on her boombox.

And they're trying to have a conversation over all this.

And I'm trying to drown it all out with David Bowie's "Heroes."

Another quiet evening at the Flycoon house...

Huck I'd love to hear that!!

MTF, that's hilarious. I can see it so clearly.
Plus I love that record!
I'm listening to Steve Inskeep of NPR's Morning Edition. He's in Iran this week.

Tonight I'm listening to Los Lonely Boys.

Not as greasy as Little Feat. Not as incendiary as Stevie Ray Vaughan. The songs aren't as tight as Los Lobos.

Kinda somewhere in the middle of all that...
