This week’s song is a country tune called “Waitin’” by Caitlin Rose of Nashville, TN.
I’m trying to figure out what artists this song reminds me of. It kind sounds like the kind of song Bonnie Raitt might sing although Rose’s voice does not sound like Raitt’s. If you figure it out, let me know in the comments.

Beer: Pistil Dandelion Ale
Brewer: Magic Hat Brewing Company
Source: 12 oz. bottle
Rating: *** (7.2 of 10)
Comments: This spring beer is all about flowers and fruit. It’s a golden, bubbly beer with a musty, wheaty, and citrus aroma. The flavor is crisp and fruity with hints of spice and flora. The head dissipates quickly but leaves behind nice lacing.
The band !!! must not like being found in search engines, but their new track “Slyd” is a great mix of funk, drum & bass, samples, and punk rock that I had to listen to multiple times.
Turn up the speakers and get ready to dance.
What are you listening to this week? Let me know in the comments.
This week’s song has an air of California psychedelia crossed with The Velvet Underground, but still feels fresh. Mostly I just like the lyric ”There’s no need to be an asshole/ You’re not in Brooklyn anymore”. Enjoy ”No Destruction” by Foxygen.
Do you like this song? Or not? Heard anything better lately?

Title: Africa: The Serengeti
Release Date: April 1, 1994
Director: George Casey
Production Co: Graphic Films
Country: United States
Genre: Documentary | Nature Film | IMAX
My son and I saw this movie at the Museum of Science twice in the past month because he liked it that much. I also saw it nearly 20 years ago when it was a new IMAX release. The movie dramatizes in the large-screen format the annual migration of wildebeest across East Africa’s grassland plains. Other animals such as lions, cheetahs, zebras, crocodiles, baboons, elephants, giraffes, and hippopotamus are visited along the way as well as the human natives of the Serengeti, the Masai. There are some cheesy moments (Masai on a mountaintop watching a passing hot air balloon, a newborn wildebeest’s struggle to walk played full hilt for the drama) but overall this is a terrific glimpse into one of the world’s greatest wild places. And it’s narrated by James Earl Jones who says the word “predator” like no one else. I could watch it again.
