    What if no one canceled self destruct? Let That Be Your Last Battlefield aired 5 years after Dr. Strangelove. But notice the similar extreme zoom-ins to control panels and exterior shots. Was this episode a parody? This is my own edit mashup. I couldn’t find the original music score from the Kubrick film so I recomposed it by ear for this project.

  • On This Day in Music History: Joy Division Make Their Live Debut

    American Songwriter ^ | January 25th, (1979) | Alli Patton
    On this day (Jan. 25) in 1978, Joy Division played their first live gig, a moment that is often credited with kicking off the post-punk era. The iconic, yet short-lived rock outfit – made up of frontman Ian Curtis, guitarist and keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook, and drummer Stephen Morris – premiered their unique blend of moody punk-tinged, synth rock at Pips Discotheque in Manchester, England. Back then, Pips was the place to be, a hub where the ever-shifting culture of late 1970s Britain was continually being shaped. “Inside there were different sub-cultures all coming together,” an article from...
  • Marshall Tucker, Namesake of The Marshall Tucker Band, Dies at 99

    The man who gave the Marshall Tucker Band their name died at age 99 on Jan. 20. The Southern rock pioneers chose their moniker from a random discovery soon after they’d formed in 1972, as they confirmed in a social media post. “We are saddened to hear of the passing of someone very special to our hearts, for very obvious reasons,” the post read. “Our band’s namesake, Mr. Marshall Tucker, passed away peacefully yesterday morning at the age of 99. Though he was never a member of our band, we wouldn’t be here today without his historic name.” It continued:...

    Britannica ^ | 1/25/23 | Britannica
    clown, familiar comic character of pantomime and circus, known by distinctive makeup and costume, ludicrous antics, and buffoonery, whose purpose is to induce hearty laughter. The clown, unlike the traditional fool or court jester, usually performs a set routine characterized by broad, graphic humour, absurd situations, and vigorous physical action. The earliest ancestors of the clown flourished in ancient Greece—bald-headed, padded buffoons who performed as secondary figures in farces and mime, parodying the actions of more serious characters and sometimes pelting the spectators with nuts. The same clown appeared in the Roman mime, wearing a pointed hat and a motley...

    “Real Time” host Bill Maher questioned whether he would ever get a chance to hang out with Howard Stern in the post-pandemic era during a frank discussion about the legendary shock jock’s germaphobia. Maher discussed his mercurial relationship with Stern – and their differing approaches to the COVID-19 pandemic – during a conversation with comedian Kevin Nealon on an episode of his “Club Random” podcast this month. The HBO star said he’s unsure whether Stern will “ever leave the house” due to his well-documented fear of being exposed to the virus. “I have a long, storied history, ups and downs...
