on life, music etc beyond mainstream



If you’re really seeing the little town Cicely in Alasca, where NORTHERN EXPOSURE („Ausgerechnet Alaska“) had its home, have a look if Chris‘ radio station is still there – and I imagine you will hear these songs from an old Americana mixtape (in my always failing memory, I think that Klaus had – in our school days – a copy of that Byrds double album that originally contained the long, long song „Eight Miles High“):


1) Lucinda Wiliams: Greenville, from: CAR WHEELS O A GRAVEL ROAD
2) Lambchop: The Blue Wave, aus IS A WOMAN
3) Emmylou Harris: Deeper Well, from WRECKIN‘ BALL
4) Bill Callahan: Eid Ma Clack Shaw: from I WISH WE WERE AN EAGLE
5) Gillian Welch: The Way It Goes, from HARROW AND THE HARVEST
6) Neil Young: Pocahontas, from RUST NEVER SLEEPS
7) Patti Smith: Redondo Beach, from HORSES
8) Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: All You Can Carry, from HYPNOTIC EYE
9) Joni Mitchell: Coyote, from HEJIRA
10) The Byrds: Eight Miles High, from THE BEST OF THE BYRDS

    Das Klima in Inuvik:

    Von Juni bis August scheint für 56 Tage die Mitternachtssonne, während es im Winter ebenfalls für mehrere Wochen vollständig dunkel wird. Die Temperatur beträgt im Jahresmittel -10 °C, wobei im Sommer maximal 31°, im Winter aber auch schon -57 °C gemessen wurden. Mit einer Niederschlagsmenge von jährlich 266 mm ist es eher trocken, da die Gebirgszüge im Westen den Regen weitgehend fernhalten.

    I’m 56 … Australian … I am so fucking blown away … I found Bill Callahan by chance … looking at reference videos for a monochrome shoot … I listened … and twitched my withers … and the hairs stood on my arms … how? Cellos, drums, horns … and that drop jaw voice Love is the king of beasts Mertepy ven seinur! I have sent this song to every person I know Thank you Bill … coming down under soon? I’ll be the old dude in the front row …
