    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.

The show "America's Toughest Jobs" is pretty good. Last night they were gold mining on a private claim in Alaska and panned and dredged a over a couple ounces in 2 days. Hippie Ben with the dreadlocks just made it to the next round.

Premise: A high school chemistry teacher earning 42,000 a year with one child and one on the way has terminal cancer. He wants to leave his family with 748,000 dollars, the amount he figures they need. He decides to make meth with a 20 year old former student with a low rider Monte Carlo with the license plate "The Capn". Oh yeah, his brother-in-law in the small Arizona city he lives in works for the DEA. So begins his zany adventures. Won an Emmy. Good writing. Check it our, it's one of the best series on TV right now.

I just love the way good tv shows break the mold of mutinous. This is highly recommended, and by far one of the best shows out there. Just be careful with little kids around. _____________________________________________ Will you come with me?

A gourmet travel show with Anthony Bourdain, who often likes to get drunk with his hosts. Last week he went to Medellin, Columbia and wasn't too interested in the food. I wonder why?

did a story on a guy in Portland who converted a small Datsun to run on electricity and his batteries give him 300 hp. He takes it down to the Motor Speedway for drag-racing on amatuer night and there's nobody who can beat him! It's so funny to watch this little electric Datsun blowing away Corvettes and Beemers and other big muscle cars in the quarter mile. They also showed an electric motorcycle built for drag racing that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2 seconds !

John Stewart goes off on UCSC hiring someone to manage the Grateful Dead archive. He is incredulous that the person must have a Masters in Archiving(?!?) He asks, what does this person do all day? Pick out pieces of blotter acid from Phil Lesh's underwear he wore on the Blues for Allah tour? Can't believe nobody commented on this! (sorry, don't know how to embed the link but you can go to the website).

Maybe it's just me but Loudon Wainwright III always has this psychedelic smile when I see him. Most recently he did the song, "Ramblin Blues" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and I was just thrilled with his performance. Too bad it's not up on YouTube because NBC's stupid website isn't playing that show at all (Sigourney Weaver is still awesome, btw!). They need to get whoever is doing Comedy Central's site 'cause it's the "Jam" compared to all others... even if Jon Stewart did make some douche remarks about Phil, his underware and blotter acid. *shakes fist in air, holding a sharpened pitchfork* I'm not finished with you Stewart! ; - )

A secret cult has been discovered operating under the guise of a political satire.The 'Daily Show' hosted by notorious left-wing fanatic Jon Stewart on the subversive cable station 'Comedy Central' has been known to....Siriusly (s.i.c.) though Lamagonzo,I think there might be a bunch of folk(myself included)who for whatever reason do not have cable.If not for a few good people sharing recordings of this very entertaining show with me,I too would be in the dark....

Did anyone catch Mickey on the History channel's "The Universe" series, spotlighting pulsars and quasars? I can't believe I hadn't posted this before now... very cool.

Was Mickey's contribution purely musical, GRTUD? Or did he have something other to add?

Well gonzo, Mickey showed how he found the rhythm of pulsars and quasars to be very psychedelic and with it, he was able to use those beats to express a spiritual link he was feeling by perceiving this active engagement with The Universe, in a musical manner. His part of the segment is just about half way through the program and is only a few moments long but, as is the case with Mickey, it made everything worth while!

Did I see that? Did anyone else? This morning on CNN, about 6-7:00AM PST, some clips kept being interrupted with flashes of Jerry playing acoustic. I don't even remember what the storyline was, it wasn't related at all to music, or us, in any way semi-remotely connected to any Dead or awakening, etc. No commentary, no music, just flashes of Jerry. Do we have a plant at CNN, flashing subliminal pro-transformative interjections of positivity? Or is it a manifestation of collective consciousness? Or are my neural synapses misfiring again?

...but it looks like there will be a third season. The shows were good to very good this year but they moved away from the time lapse cloudscapes and other scenes of New Mexico. Not that any of that is related to the story. It has made the series grittier. The acting is very intense and well done.

AMC has announced a 4th season of "Breaking Bad" They will rerun the last three seasons in hour segments before then. I urge people to watch this show unless you're not into quality everything about the production values and acting. The plot-line may not appeal to some but you can't say it isn't filled with real pathos. I think it's the best thing on TV.

Bernie Sanders laid it on the line. Extending Bush's tax cuts for the rich by Congress while cutting programs for the poor by the Republicans now in power.Now these inane assholes like Boehner and Cantor (R) majority leaders in the house and Senate, want to do away with: Social Security Medicare Medicaid Minimum Wage Collective Bargaining And much, much more that effects your children now. If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention (or are one of the rich people making more than a 100 million a year that we should lynch in the public square.) Hey folks! 3 years past on this Wall St scam pulled off by Goldman and not one person has gone to trial, never mind to jail. Bernie Madhoff wasn't guilty of mortgage-backed securities being hedged (all dogs have their day) I am proud that the only independent socialist senator comes from the state where I live. The great State of Vermont where Democracy is real. I know reading these pages not many people care, but I do. See the extended version at www.theDaily show.com

...much anticipated and short on dialog. I think this is a great series and the characters comments during lead-up to series premiere really shows where the show is headed. Great panoramas and and scenes, cameras work edited, in New Mexico.

Surreal show of the year: Wilfred. Starring Elijah Wood, a twenty-something loser who's next-door neighbor's dog is a guy in a dog suit who talks and smokes weed- but only Elijah sees the guy. Everyone else sees a real dog. Why this happens is NEVER explained which is part of the genius of this show. A must see. J.T. Gossard http://thehallucinogenicbible.blogspot.com/

Bad break. I'm guessing by the question that you don't have any AMC On Demand options on your cable/satellite? I think that you can pay $2 an episode to watch on amazon instant video. There also seemed to be an indication that AMC will show something on Dec 5...but what I saw didn't have a lot of detail, no episode listing just a date and time (12 am EST).
