Haven't listed any new songs in a while. Mostly just listening to Radiohead and Wilco 'cause I haven't changed the CD tray in the Passat for a couple of months.
Anyway - while listening to NPR earlier this week, I caught an interview with a band called 'Dengue Fever'. Cambodian Rock/Pop from the 60's played by a couple of 21st century California guys and a Cambodian chanteuse. Think the Surfari's crossed with Madame Butterfly, Gidget Goes to the Mekong Delta or something.
Tracked down a couple of MP3s and I'm hooked. Check out 'Shave Your Beard' and 'New Year's Eve'. Before you know it, you'll be dancing the Jerk and daydreaming about crawling through the jungle with an M16 on your back heading to a Vietnamese brothel.
whatever - just check it out.
Yo Tarik! I know you hip New Mexicalis have been all over this for years now, let me know whacha think...

Sheldon Brown died Sunday evening. If you have the even the slightest interest in cycling, you know how big a loss this is. There are already many, many eloquent remembrances floating across the internet with, I'm sure, many more to come.
I'd just like to say 'Goodbye Sheldon and Godspeed.'
