Last night had so many options. Free Yelawolf show, free SCION Black Sheep/Nice ‘n Smoove show.

I just didn’t feel like going out. This cold is serious. I don’t want it to get worse. What’d I do instead? Play NCAA football.

Pathetic, right?

R.I.P Studs Terkel

Posted in RIP Studs Terkel by Dom Brady on November 3, 2008

From media bistro:
Studs Terkel, the ageless master of listening and speaking, a broadcaster, activist, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author whose best-selling oral histories celebrated the common people he liked to call the “non-celebrated,” died Friday. He was 96. He was an old rebel who never mellowed, never retired, never forgot, and “never met a picket line or petition I didn’t like.” NYT: The voice is unforgettable, as if each phrase scraped the ear with a scoopful of gravel. What remains in the memory too is the earnestness that could turn both fervent and sentimental. USAT: Terkel had the listening skills of a psychologist, the timing of a comic, the curiosity of a scholar, and the gravelly voice of a boxing promoter. CSM: If you can imagine Walt Whitman hosting a Midwest radio talk show, wearing a checkered shirt and drawling like a movie gangster, you’ve conjured up America’s greatest oral historian. Times of London: Terkel’s political sympathies almost killed his career during Senator Joseph McCarthy’s anticommunist crackdown of the 1950s. He was dumped from an early radio show when he refused to distance himself from liberal causes. Chicago Tribune: He took the obscure academic exercise known as oral history and turned it into literature. In transcribing the words and hopes of ordinary people, he gave voice to the voiceless. WaPo: Reporters and priests and psychologists know it takes a certain kind of personality to get a certain kind of person to speak honestly. Terkel’s gift — displayed on his syndicated radio program for decades, as well as in print — was just this.

It’s been at least a week, but I owe y’all CMJ pics

I had a great time. The Pimps of Joytime were terrific live. Not only is their bass player hot *fans self* but she must have been channeling Jamerson. She was playing! I saw Pacific Division for the first time live. Wanted to say something, but I didn’t want to blow up their spot. Like was literally right next to me at the Tanya Morgan show. I caught George Clinto and Parliament Funkadelic LIVE for the first time in my life and I caugh the Noisettes and SO many other bands as well. The Johnny Cash Folsom Prison documentary was great too. Great food, great people, better times. I love New York! Thanks, CMJ.

On another note, I feel like I have a great deal to say and nobody wants to pay me for it, which is fine. I’m going to say it anyway. Look for more video and podcasts from me in the near future at my website dominickbrady.com. A new Analogue Atlanta will be posted this week, God willing. Volunteering and work have got my schedule scrambled. Losing my cell phone in NYC didn’t help either. I HAVE NOBODY’S NUMBER!

Thanks for the birthday wishes, btw.
