Roy Hargrove, RIP. I always thought, next time I go to New York, I'll try to stay up really late and head down to Small's at 3:00 a.m. Maybe I'll hear Roy Hargrove sitting in! But I guess that's not gonna happen. He's joined the band upstairs.

Sep. 16th, 2018


Catamount Community Radio Sept 9 & 16, 2018

Florence has been pretty non-eventful in Cullowhee. She's like snubbing us, a little drizzle for you, that's it.

Boy, I got pretty frustrated running the board today, with CD player 3 not being able to recognize CDs and CD players 1 &2, skipping and freezing up. Ive been having trouble for some time, and I have a feeling it's my CDs, not the CD players - although I'm not totally convinced - so a couple months ago I decided to buy a new external disc drive ... It hasn't really solved the problem. My latest theory: It's an Apple plot ... not that I can explain how it works.

Catamount Community Radio - September 2, 2018

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. Charles Bukowski called it the worst goddam day of them all (I heard somebody say that he said something like that). Then today (which is Monday, by the way) I see that Isaac posted a video of James Baldwin on a talk show, quoting Malcolm X:

I don’t know if white Christians hate Negroes or not; I know that we have a Christian church which is white and a Christian church which is black. I know as Malcolm X once put it: “the most segregated hour in American life is high noon on Sunday." That says a great deal to me about a Christian nation. It means that I can’t afford to trust most white Christians, and certainly cannot trust the Christian church.

I'm just going to leave that there.

Clean board op yesterday. Average show, but my average is above average; ergo, it was an average show for me, but a better-than-average radio show, as radio shows go. Besides, abulia, I also suffer from an intense case of modesty. Maybe I should ask my doctor is Getagripium is right for me.

Mary Ellen edges Jim Dandy in the cover contest, for the second straight week.

1. NEXT Collective (feat. Christian Scott) – Marvin’s Room
2. Sly & the Family Stone – You Caught me Smilin’ (Again)

4. Norah Jones – The Nearness of You

6. Ella Fitzgerald – Solitude
7. Caetano Veloso – Get Out of Town
8. Larry Goldings – Get Out of town
9. John Lee Hooker – The Motor City is Burning
10. Walter Smith III – Blues
11. Thelonious Monk – Well You Needn’t
12. The Vestibules – Bulbous Bouffant
13. K.C. & the Sunshine Band – Boogie Shoes
14. Dusty Springfield – You’ve Got a Friend

The Death of Curiosity

I don't know where ideas come from; I get them, but sometimes I feel like I don't deserve them, because I don't do any work to earn them. I'm just walking across the parking lot and BAM I have an idea for an activity in one of my classes, or for the cover contest, or in this case, for a blog entry.

So what hit me is the idea of the death of curiosity. Now, on the surface, this might seem like some sort of tragedy: Your curiosity died? Sorry about that, bro. But upon further reflection, I'm starting to think that it's not a bad thing.

In my twenties and thirties I was an insatiable traveler, an insatiable reader, basketball player, etc. I wanted tactile experiences, intellectual experiences, culinary experiences, all kinds of experiences. And then some time in my late forties I began to lose interest in things. I no longer read books at the pace I once did. I just couldn't muster the ambition to travel in the summer. Instead of heading to the gym to play basketball I would just say to myself, meh.

I attributed this to what I called abulia, which is a real word. Google's summarizers summarize it like this: "an absence of willpower or an inability to act decisively, as a symptom of mental illness." But in my mind, my abulia was something grander, more complex and nuanced. I was suffering from abulia, that's what it was.

But now in my mid fifties, I see things a little more clearly, or at least that's what it seems like. I've given up on feeling guilty about my apathy, my cynicism, my tendency to always look for the humor in every situation and to never take anything seriously. I see it now as a question of stages. When you're young, you absolutely should have a voracious curiosity: that's what you're wired for. But as you get older it's normal and healthy to let go of things.

So, the day still has 24 hours, and maybe the gift is that in your fifties you can hone in your attention and maybe achieve that X thing that's been percolating in the back of your head, whatever it may be, because it's no longer necessary to feel it all, hear it all and see it all. Now you can ruminate and make it into something.
