After these messages

I've got a review on the Globe and Mail site right now of the new book Apocalypse Jukebox: The End of the World in American Popular Music.

The details of the many exciting papers and panels at this April's EMP Pop Conference on the theme of "Dance Music Sex Romance" are now posted, including mine.

Otherwise, I'm on the move this week - see below for the reason. Torontonians, some folks are gathering on Wednesday night upstairs at The Pilot on Cumberland St., to watch the Colbert show but also listen to some live music and readings, featuring my friends Laura Barrett, Angela Rawlings, Andrew Kaufman and Sean Dixon plus MC Sean K. Robb. Doors at 9, entertainment at 10, TV at 11:30. Here's the Facebook page - I didn't organize it but I appreciate it.

See you, as they say in the teevee biz, "after the break."

In your review of Apocalypse Jukebox you say "If they were going to choose only one jazz artist, it should have been Sun Ra, whose cult-like Arkestra sailed under the banner, 'It's after the end of the world, don't you know that yet?'" Good point, but my vote would go to Albert Ayler, who was positively obsessed with eschatology as his own end was nearing.

My mom taped this, Carl. Or should I say: my mom DVD-recordered it.

Hilarious EBN-style remix pending (retro 1990 industrial is in).

That was a very good show, with Carl as the cherry on top of the whipped confection that is the Colbert Report. I wish he had used you in the Doom Bunker sketch as well, but it's all good.

We've been talking about you on the Fluff list, Carl. Stop by when you get a chance.

Oh, and you rock on Amazon too!
