"But I'll keep my head up high
Although I'm kind of tired
My gal just up and left last week
Friday I got fired
You know it's almost funny
Things can't get worse than now
But I'll keep on tryin' to sing
But please, just don't ask me how"

Evidence of Things Unseen: Friday's Show Got Guests Galore!

Brownman will be joining me in Orbit with his new disk Gravitation, so no conflict of interest there.
Maybe he'll bring his horn. Only one way to find out.

Live chat with Fergus Hambleton and the legendary JoJo Bennett at 5:30 about the remastered CD release at the Lula Lounge October 3rd

And at 6:30, David Dacks will be calling in a red alert on Larry Ochs (of the ROVA Saxophone Quartet) in partnership with drummer Don Robinson at the Music Gallery. Saturday, September 28 marks the first time this duo has been to Toronto - it's a bit more swinging than the severe/sublime saxophone multi phonics for which Ochs is renowned. Opening is Paul Dutton & Joe Sorbara in a nod to the continuing vitality of the Music Gallery's founders, CCMC. $10

Watch Your Asteroids

Computer model shows J002E3 6 turning around the Earth and then transitioning into a heliocentric orbit.

Detected by an amateur astronomer William Yong September 3, 2002. Further studies showed that the object was not a stone asteroid, but a third stage (S-IVB) rocket from the Saturn 5 Apollo 12 expedition.

Bright Lights, Big Beauty


A film by Paolo Sorrentino with Toni Servillo, Carlo Verdone, & Sabrina Ferilli 

This movie I love. Music heard here in the trailer is John Tavener's The Lamb.
The North American premier was at Toronto International Film Festival. Please see it when it opens wide. It's full of glorious music, both sacred and blessed by beats.
