If they can make Väsen go South Park, and build a Lego version of the Serenity crew, (SO shiny!!) what can be next? Yeah, I just looked for Lego Avatar, but nobody has made anything yet. Better stock up on blue bricks... but I did find the South Park Avatar parody right here. In the best tradition of instant cultural commentary, the parody aired before the film was released.
Lännen-Jukka String Band finally loaded up a few live tracks that feature the three piece version of the band that rocked us at Nordic Roots 9. Was it 9 or 8? Actually their sound check jamming with fiddler Sammy Lind from Foghorn String band while the sound guy (who shall remain nameless) overslept was one of the high points of the weekend. Any previous recordings I could find are just of J.Karjalainen solo. Sure wish they'd put out a disc of the trio. Something like this, perhaps.
And why is this disc coming out a month later over here than it is in the U.K.? Euro-bands, I get. But the Chocolate Drops? Why? Well, I expect we'll see them again in our town soon enough.
Anybody want to roadtrip to the UK to see Oumou Sangare and Orchestre Poly-Rythmo tour together? Man! Gimme some of that!
With that wonderful thought, I'll leave you. I've got a long shopping list of downloads now that my holiday ITunes gift card and a faster internet connection are in the same place at the same time.
