    Lisa Mezzacappa ORGANELLE ORGANELLE is a “set" of compositions, inspired by diverse scientific processes – some enormous and unfathomable, others impossibly microscopic – that form a whole through the insights and explorations of master improvisers. The modular work draws its musical ideas from the different ways that the human body, the natural world, and the cosmos mark and “experience” the passing of time. The notes, rhythms, musical relationships, melodies, and structures in each movement of ORGANELLE are connected to theories of cell biology, astrophysics, paleontology, zoology, or neuroscience, exploring these otherwise-imperceptible phenomena through sound. The first iteration of ORGANELLE premiered in Europe in spring of 2016, with musicians in Köln, DE; Naples and Rome, IT; and back at home that fall, in Berkeley, CA at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. In each presentation, the music is revised, re-imagined, and expanded to embrace a new set of musical personalities and a different performance context. New movements will be added, and old ones discarded or re-worked, to suit different configurations of musicians as the work continues to develop in the coming years. ORGANELLE also reflects my fascination with the challenges of notating musical ideas for improvisers to play (with), which for me has an interesting parallel with the ways science tries to visually represent complex, multi-dimensional systems and processes with flow charts and graphs and diagrams. The practical concern of wanting this score to be playable by any kind of improviser - a laptop electronic musician, an experimental koto player, a guitarist with nontraditional tunings - meant I often needed to find ways of visually representing musical ideas and relationships that were not confined to the traditional music staff. Many of these new graphic notations ended up having poetic connections to the scientific diagrams I was discovering in researching the content for the piece.

fuck, I forgot this question was in the TV thread, and I was racking my brain trying to think of the movie which I think was called Carney... I forgot the character's name, but someone in Natural Born Killers? nope, on a Simpsons episode for sure... a play with the Stone movie line in Natural Born Killers; which was probably the best film he directed... I forgot who said it though on the Simpsons. one of my old high school buds ended up being a staff writer on the Simpsons for a while, but he was not a deadhead; so no cool 'hidden' references in any of the stuff he wrote. ) -;

this is so frigging true, it is sad. I got DVDs for Hawaii 5 -0, Kojack, Columbo, The Jeffersons, Sanford and Son, Good Times, and so on... etc etc etc Barney Miller, too; just to get me by... what is being produced in La La land these days is a fucking travesty.

OK, CCJoe, I'll give you credit for a win on my trivia. The character in question was Bart and I thought the line to be of some irony for our lives. As for TV, it is pretty sad, for sure. Thank God for the Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park and Charlie Brown. Wait a minute, I think I see a connection here, hummmm... Also, don't forget to watch The Daily Show and Colbert Report (although they're all repeats this week). Jon Stewart has had several world leaders (both current and past) on the show recently, not the least of which was the President of Bolivia, a former tenant farmer that reformed several major elements of government in six months, including forcing the major natural gas company to re-negotiate a contract that was very unfair to the people of Bolivia while giving what amounted to bribes to top government officials. Not included in that interview (unfortunately) was the fact that The Bush administration tried to paint the newly elected leader (at the time) as a terrorist sponsor. Perhaps reform should travel north? Both are great shows, not to be missed. The Dude Abides!

Which TV cop of the 70's said: "You can't corrupt it. And you know why? Because to corrupt it, you've got to show how corrupt you really are." a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Steve McGarret e) Barney Miller f) Hutch g) Starsky

Baretta - 'cause thirty years later he "offs" his "wife" and uses the alibi, "I couldn't have killed the woman, I was looking for the gun I left at the restaurant!" Now that statement took balls and a total lack of intelligence which could only result in the toughest 70's TV cop. The Dude Abides!

So I'm looking through the latest Guitar Player and they have a list of the top 40 underrated guitarists and among them is David Lindley, Kim Simmons from Savoy Brown, Rick Derringer, Robie Krieger from the Doors, Rory Gallagher, Andy Powell and Ted Turner from Wishbone Ash and Charo! No kidding. If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. Wiliam Blake

did you know that "Baretta" in Swahili means 'stupid dumb ass motherfucker' ?? well, in ONE of the dialects it does! the question was who was the TOUGHEST cop not who was the dumbest!! Who was the toughest? Who was the toughest TV cop of the 70s?? and why?? a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Steve McGarret e) Barney Miller f) Hutch g) Starsky h) __________________________ in my book, Baretta was too short to be really tough. Columbo, while intelligent and pretty much of a hard ass when it came to law breakers, never bitch slapped any perps. McGarret was a bit too 'official' and by the book, though he did threaten and knock around a few suspects in season one. Barney Miller -- no elaboration necessary. How did this guy make Captain anyways? Oh, I know, the only one else up for the job was Fish. (a GREAT comedy TV show, though) Starsky and Hutch were both borderline fags (not that there is anything wrong with that) how many shows did a bomb go off and they were thrown into each other's arms?? sheesh. so, that leaves Kojak -- the toughest bad ass cop of the 70's in a VERY tough neighborhood. The 9th Precint on the lower east side of MaDhattan. He either threatened, violated someone's civil rights,or bitch slapped a perp in almost every episode. Further, he wore a cool hat and his suits were top notch. especially the linings. PLUS he got laid more than all of those other cops combined. Who love's you baby?

Which 70s cop show had the best theme song?? a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Hawaii 5-0 e) Barney Miller f) Husky and Starch g) ___________________ who even remembers Husky and Starch's theme song? fuckin Zebra - 3. those guys were wankers. Columbo, ok... but certainly not that memorable, any more than Kojak's theme was memorable... a tough choice between Baretta and Hawaii 5-0... but for a cop show, I gotta go with Baretta's theme. sung here by Mr. Entertainment!

damn developers sure fucked up Waikiki... how things have changed! well, they fucked it up more, and they are still fucking it up even as we speak. my buddy actually lived IN the Ilikai for a year or 2, the building McGarret is on top of... well, anyway, this is a pretty cool song, too!

I always liked the Hawaii 5-0 theme song and opening scenes. Made me want to jump up, grab the board, and head for the beach (or at least fire a fatty and imagine the beach). Too bad Telly is still not around. He, of all people, could probably answer how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop. Who loves you, baby!

Why is the best 70's detective show, The Rockford Files, not being included? Ok, so Jim Rockford was a PI and not a cop, still pretty much a cop show. Great theme song, love the guitar riff. And he could take a punch, too!

Ralph Kramden voice... hammuna hammuna hammuna... yeah, I should have included Jim Rockford... ) -; sorry Jimbo! but Kojak would still kick his ass; but Rockford certainly ranks above Steve McGarrett! his name is a tough guy name, after all. I am unable to post the beggining song directly, but you can cut and paste this link. http://youtube.com/watch?v=V5pYtG_jo3o peace

I agree, heatha! Those guys could see into the future, if you ask me. I saw the film at the theater when it was released and was blown away yet couldn't possibly understand all the significance. I was a bit overwhelmed and freaked out in fact when I first experienced the movie and it took years of life to understand why. Thank God I had The Grateful Dead and Hunter to balance the "heavy" implications of psychedelics and their ultimate meaning in my life. Well I must get back to my preoccupation with global domination. Ciao! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair.

there is a great TV show in England called 'The Real Hustle' if you go on youtube.com and search for 'The Real Hustle' you will get plenty of hits, lots of confidence games, grifts, scams, and other interesting shit. one example, but there are PLENTY of them. watch and learn. peace.

One of my co-workers was ranting about this show-so watched it once, and now am quite into it. Think the guy playing Dexter is just a marvelous actor-his sociopath is really good-BUT the sister drives me nuts! A friend also gave me a series on dvd called Wonderfalls-where inanimate objects tell this young woman to do things. Is kinda goofy and cute.********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live. Samuel Clemens

a big favourite in Badgerland, except if we watch too many episodes in a short period the hypochondria can set in. Oh no, I've got an itch..it must be grandfunkrailroadosis! You are right Deadheadkid and TL, Hugh Laurie is brilliant, ever since his early work with Stephen Fry in their comedy show and in Jeeves and Wooster. His presence on the screen does however generate a worrying twinkle in the eye of Mrs Badger.
