Thanks for reading jimnolansblog.com! Thanks, Isabella, for the cartoons and illustrations. Thanks, Ken Meyer, for the audio engineering. Thanks, Kanad Banerjee, for the book and CD designs. P.S. New CD coming soon. Here's a look.
Ken Meyer has been kind enough to record and engineer over 20 audio commentaries for me over the years. I have been wise enough to rely on his judgment in all matters. Now I find out he's also a drummer in a totally hip band playing at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater this Friday at 7 PM.
Life In A Blender come equipped with a violin, cello, horns, and a touch of absurdism, bringing a vaudevillian energy to their much-loved stage show. The New Yorker says: "The band's new album, The Heart is a Small Balloon, is rife with Ralph's signature wit, but it is also a richly reflective affair that exudes a poignancy and maturity one might not expect." The NY Daily News says: "The band's orchestrated music is a covert beauty, cleverly disturbing lyrics and askew music....an event worth cheering." Jersey Beat calls the band's latest: "A terrifically dark and despairing work of beautifully bleak20and burnt-out oddball art."
Tonight's CD release is for Life In A Blender's 7th album, Homewrecker Spoon. It will feature Colony Collapse Horns.
