Media Recomendations for a Moment in Time

First I would like to congratulate a colleague and comrade of mine who today received an endorsement for his work in the form of a healthy chunk of funding for research in the online virtual world of Second Life. Yippeee.

And now to my own trough. The week has been one of endeavors in digital teaching and sign language is Swedish. What a mix. All went well and I am free to return to the labor of my thesis, which has been neglected these past few days. Tomorrow I will be attending the disputation or defense for Therese who after 6 years is about to become a Doctor of Philosophy. Yippeeee.

Now to the sounds for today

A Truer Sound: Johnny Cash - Strawberry Cake (Out of Print and Rare 1976 live album)
While this may not be the best Johnny Cash live album (that distinction goes to either Folsom or San Quentin depending on who you ask and on what day), it's certainly the most interesting. Interspersed with stories and dialouge and pure interaction with the audience. This album makes you realize that Johnny Cash's career did not suddenly end in 1970 and pick back up in 1994 as some would like to believe. No, The 70's were a fruitful time for the Man In Black, while certainly not as classic and legendary as his 50's and late 60's performances and albums, he was certainly at the top of his game as a performer.

Terror + Rays Blog: VA - Die Sechziger 1933-1963 Lieder des europäischen Widerstandes gegen den Faschismus
Songs of the European Resistance Against Fascism Various ~ "Die Sechziger: 1933-1963"

white collar crime
New mixtape from Phaseone, featuring quite a bit of new material, as well as a handful of his always tight older remixes I've posted here over the last year or so (Burial, Panda Bear, Animal Collective, Banjo or Freakout, etc).

Be full and free....
