Baby’s On Fire

14 Mar

I know I’m obsessed, but it’s hard not to be.  Aside from “Radiation Vibe,” I’ve also been singing “Baby’s On Fire” by Brian Eno a lot these days.

I love glam Eno.  I love glam Eno not associated with nuclear plants on fire more, but….   Download this perfect gem here.

Also, as a reminder, better places to donate to Japan other than the Red Cross are listed here!


Radiation Vibe

12 Mar

So the only good thing that’s come out of the ‘earthquake-tsunami-subsequent radiation-what next’  is that I have one of my old favorite songs in my head: “Radiation Vibe” from the very first Fountains of Wayne record.  And now you will too – download here.

And that’s why you should love us Sagitarrians.  We’re always looking on the bright side.

Song of the Day is, sadly, “God Moving Over the Face of the Waters” by Moby  — from his appropriately named ‘Everything is Wrong’ album.  Download here.

Also, if you’re thinking of giving money to the relief efforts, I really urge you to consider an organization other than the Red Cross.  Direct Relief International, Doctors without Borders or my personal favorite, Partners in Health are all better as far as actually getting it right.  I’m sure there are others.  While it’s easy to text $10 to the Red Cross, for any real donations, please think about it.  (In fact, read this to decide when you think might be the right time to donate.)
