....will not be here in this ish of Blastitude because Brad Sonder must've been ill or something. I mean, he's always been "ill" in the 'rap' sense of the word, but I think this past month he was also physically ill because he hasn't sent a column, nor returned my imploring e-mails. For a guy who is wont to complain/boast about enduring actual two-month long hangovers, this isn't a surprise. In lieu of Brad's wisdom, we're gonna repeat the links bit from last month! We're also gonna end this ish right here, at 7 pages instead of our usual 8. If you've read this far, you deserve a break anyway. Thanks for making it with us, keep those e-cards and e-letters a-comin', and make it back next month.


The Sixties: Literary Tradition and Social Change  This is an online history book! Covers the Beats, Vietnam, rock and roll, but starts with literary precursors like Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman, complete with amazing scans of first-edition books. (Excellent graphics throughout.)

A Guide to SF Music  Not San Francisco music but songs with science fiction themes! Everything from Heldon to Anthrax's song about to Judge Dredd to "Starship Trooper" by Yes to Sonic Youth's Dick/Gibson references to Neil Diamond himself gets mentioned. ("'Heartlight' is based on 'E.T.'")

A really good site dedicated to Amon Duul 2  Somehow I didn't expect this to be so cool...don't miss the photos and the lyrics! Especially the this case, English-as-a-second-language really adds to the psychedelia...


Whaddaya know, it's Amon Duul 2!!!

thank you, this has been
number three
