When I'm not attached to the computer, I'm, well, attached to other viewing platforms. Movies, TV, audio, my senses are being attacked on a daily basis. There is so much out there of interest and so little time... you don't really need my review of the new Avengers movie, but here are a few slightly more obscure objects of art that have piqued my interest.
Also from Bruce at popgeekheaven, an announcement that made me sad and caused me to part with a few more bux. Michael Carpenter is an exquisite singer/songwriter who has decided to move away from recording, but not before knocking out one more double album of power pop greatness. Check out his financing site and give a power-pop brother a hand...
MICHAEL CARPENTER ANNOUNCES HIS RETIREMENT FROM MAKING SOLO RECORDS TO CONCENTRATE ON PRODUCING. I can't think of a solo artists I've known and worked with over my 25 years of power pop who I think more highly of than Michael Carpenter. His first four solo albums appeared on Not Lame Recordings, as well as one other side-project(The Supahip) and over the last 17 years, he's released a large body of consistently excellent albums - must be close to 20. Now, he announces this last solo album(a double album) and YOU CAN HELP MAKE IT HAPPEN and show your support.
