Family Maintenance

January 27th, 2009 by Editor B

I was recently castigated for not posting enough cute baby pictures here.

In the Hall

Hopefully that will assuage my critics for the time being. The girl’s just learned to stand up on her own for a few seconds, but alas I haven’t managed to snap a picture of that yet. I should also give a shout out to my in-laws who sent a little walker-toy in the mail. She’s enjoying it.

And while I’m on the subject of familial obligations, here’s a mix I created for Xy’s classroom, under her exacting direction.

  1. Double Dutch Bus by Frankie Smith
  2. Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen) by Quindon Tarver
  3. Our Time (Tom Neville Remix) by Ocelot
  4. Smells Like Teen Spirit (Butch Vig Mix – Recorded May, 1991) by Nirvana
  5. Lucky by Radiohead
  6. The Cut by Benga
  7. Paradisiaque by MC Solaar
  8. 台灣Song-搖滾版 (Taiwan Song) by 大支
  9. Si Señor by Control Machete
  10. Fist to Fist Rub a Dub by N. Kojak & Liza
  11. Jungle Infiltrator by Loefah
  12. The Real McCoy by Benga
  13. Tomorrow Comes Today (Banana Baby) by Gorillaz

And just so my parents don’t feel left out, I should mention I tried Skype for the first time Friday and did a video call with Mom & Dad. (I’m getting familiar with Skype so we can use it to connect with Marion for Beyond Jena.) I was impressed with the ease of use and the quality of the audio and video. It was cool to see the folks. The future is here now.

    That Double Dutch is something funky INDEED. Can’t. Work. Keep. Boppin’. Head.

    Whoa! That’s one of them curly-eared cats!

  3. Editor B Says:

    That’s what we thought, Varg. In fact we named her Folds because we thought she was a Scottish Fold. But it turns out she just has crumpled ears, possibly a congenital defect but more likely the result of a severe infection. She’s deaf.

  4. David Says:

    She really reminds me of Bill the Cat–Folds, that is, not Persephone. But she’s a nice, pitiful cat.

    I remember hearing legend of a thunderous and dry Steve Albini original mix of Nirvana’s “In Utero” that circulated in bootleg form, and rocked harder than anything–which was of course too much for Geffen, and thus reverb was applied for sufficient marketability/palatability..
