Guys. I just realized that my 13th Freestailo happened on the 11/13. THIRTEENS! AND 11 and 13 are both prime numbers. How cool is that?!
|See?! 11 and 13!|
I often will read poetry on my show, but instead of taking up large chunks of time to read and maybe explain the poetry, I decided to just read it. How did you feel about that? Did you like that more than me talking about it more? I would really like to know. Also, here's a list of the poetry I read:
- "Sonnet: To Eva" by Sylvia Plath

- Transition of moods: The transition between Deepspace5 and Chirgilchin was oddly appropriate, since Deepspace5 had a small amount of Tuvan throat singing in the background. That was not planned, except for the face that I linked their covers for a visual transition for myself. The same thing happened with Hill of Beans to Boris Grebenshikov, and from that to the Madagascar recording.
- I found the Urbie Green album!: I tried to find it for the show on Thursday but failed, because all I could remember was that it had the word "Fox" in the title, which gives me nothing essentially. If we had an online database maybe it would have been easier, but I think I really liked having to hunt for it. It's like winning an eBay auction.
- Escaflowne OSTs: Soooo apparently we have like 4 Vision of Escaflowne soundtracks in the soundtrack section. This means 4 CDs of mostly Yoko Kanno. I think I literally screamed when I found it. Also, the particular Yoko Kanno track I played was, like, ecstasy. It also reminded me of Kill Bill. Hahaha.
- Messing up Kim's requests: Yeah so my friend Kim requested Sarasate near the middle of the first hour, and I ended up playing Sarasota because I thought that's what he meant. Turns out, he really did mean Sarasate. Good rule to live by: just go with what your requester says and don't question, otherwise you'll look like an ass.
- Big pause in first hour: For some reason I couldn't get the promo to play right away, so there was a big pause. C'est la vie.
- Transition from Yoko Kanno to Celestial Navigations: I love these two tracks. I just don't love them together. The Yoko Kanno track was so beautiful, and I don't know what I was thinking picking a track like "Janitor III" to go after. It sounds fine, and I'm sure people will like it, but I wanted something more...subtle. Oddly enough though, the track reminds me of the 3 old guys in Cowboy Bebop, whose soundtrack was incidentally done by Yoko Kanno. So maybe this was actually perfect. >_<
