Friday Clock Out presents:

Jim White

Static on the Radio

Jim White

Three A.M. I’m awakened
By a sweet summer rain
Distant howling of a passing Southbound coal train
Was I dreaming
Or was there someone just lying here Beside me in this bed?
Am I hearing things?
Or in the next room
Did a long forgotten music box just start playing?
And I know (it’s a sin putting words in the mouths of the dead)
And I know (it’s a crime to weave your wishes into what they said)
And I know (only fools venture where them spirits tread)
Cause I know (every word, every sound bouncing ’round my head)
Is just static on the radio
(Everything I think I know is just static on the radio)
Now there’s a church house
About a stone’s throw down
From this place where I been staying
It’s Sunday morning
And I’m sittin’ in my truck
Listening to my neighbor sing
Ten years ago I might have joined in
But don’t time change those inclined
To think less of what is written
Than what’s wrote between the lines?
Cause I know (dreams are for those who are asleep in bed)
And I know (it’s a sin putting words in the mouths of the dead)
Cause I know (for all my ruminations I can’t change a thing
Still I hope (there’s others out there who are listening)
To the static on the radio
(Everything I think I know is just static on the radio
Static on the radio
(Ain’t praying for miracles, I’m just down on my knees)
Static on the radio
(Listening for the song behind everything I think I know)
Static on the radio
(Everything I think I know is just static on the radio)

Friday Clock Out presents:

The piece is called Colored sculpture, a title that was embarrassingly left unanalyzed by just about every bit of press the show received.

“The artwork is a figurative sculpture based on Huckleberry Finn, Alfred E. Neuman, and Howdy Doody. It’s a cartoony, life-size figure that’s almost like a piece of sports equipment. It has six points around the body, and it’s rudimentarily animated from three of these points. It’s similar to other characters I’ve used in my films, but it’s ultimately a new character. It also has eyes, which are video screens with special glass lenses on top. It’s able to make eye contact with viewers […]. The character goes between anger and pain. Animated content plays in the video screens that serve as its eyes, along with live video footage I’ve shot. Formally, it’s extremely glossy, reflective.” Jordan Wolson on “Colored Sculpture”

End Of The Century presents:

A playlist To Die For!

Today from 3-5 p.m. I (LJ) will be hosting End of the Century on WRIR 97.3 fm Richmond Independent Radio! I’ll be playing a song from each year, starting with 1999 and counting backwards to 1975. My goal, as is usually my goal, is to gather as disparate a collection of artists and songs as possible!

Over the Edge of the Pop Narcotic presents:

Erkin Koray Elektronik Türküler

This is my first time subbing for Over the Edge of the Pop Narcotic! I’ve looked through the past few month’s of Otto’s playlists to get a “map” of his musical predilections for this show. This is my attempt to approximate that range without duplicating it. Might this be the first Over the Edge of the Pop Narcotic in a long while to not feature some R.E.M.? There is only one way to find out!
