MONDAY MUSIC VIDEO: But I’d Like to Show You, PENLOP


Hello fellow Gen-X oldsters (or other indy music fans.) Do you remember St. Etienne? Their album “Foxbase Alpha” from 1991 was one of those albums that got under your skin and became part of your synapses. Have you listened to any of their subsequent material? Doesn’t matter, you’re going to

MONDAY MUSIC VIDEO: Going To A Place That’s Rotten


Some days are not awesome. Today was one of those days. Nothing truly terrible happened to me personally today, but more than one person I love did not have the best day. This is exacerbated by the fact that our environmental degradation is floating in the air, blocking out the

MONDAY MUSIC VIDEO: Tell me How / It’s Better When The Sun Goes Down


I’m hot. You’re hot. We’re all hot. Even when the sun goes down, there is no relief. Thanks climate change *insert eyeroll emoji here* We had a pretty busy weekend with kids graduating high school and junior high and annual general meetings of poetry festival boards and visiting our oldest

MONDAY MUSIC VIDEO: All Oppression’s Born of Lies


One of the clearest manifestations of my privilege is that I have the ability, and the permission, to “turn off” when when “things get too much.” It has been an emotionally overwhelming week as twitter shows us video after video of police abusing their power and abusing protestors. As a

MONDAY MUSIC VIDEO: At Night, Like You, We Dance To Be Free


I debated not posting anything this week. There is so much going on that it seems almost juvenile to talk about music videos when so many people are fighting for their very right to exist. But it is precisely in times like these that we need art – to comfort

MONDAY MUSIC VIDEO: So We Won’t Forget


Mondays kind of suck. So let’s try to make them suck less by sharing music videos. This week I’m kicking off what I intend to be a regular feature, the Monday Music Video. I love music, and I love movies, so of course, little movies set to music are right

Before it was a book…


…it was a blog. Well, to be precise, I was in the middle of writing the book when I came up with the idea for the blog. If Lunatic Engine was a good name for a book, why wouldn’t it be a good name for a blog? And what better
