Abstract and Surreal DDs for June

I hardly need to abstract things, 
for each object is unreal enough already.

Episode #8 - Doc Sonian's Sonic Soup- An Aviator's Dream- The Man From Painted Woods

This show is dedicated to my father, former Lt. Ernest Anders Erickson, who would
have celebrated a birthday recently. A favorite image of his was the side-ways 8, the
infinity symbol. It was a graphic used by the secret design department,“The Skunk
Works.” at Lockheed Aircraft in Southern California, where he worked as a designer.
A photograph (below) taken in England during World War II, of my dad, with Lt. General
Jimmy Doolittle below the B-17 Flying Fortress, "Lady Fortune,” later renamed “Carmen’s
Folly.”

branches

the branches bend
and the tree reacts,
the birds dance
while the forest acts
out its simple pleasures

I grew up on a certain blue
to me that blue means
more than the sky itself,
my mother and grandmother
were in love with a certain blue
they were painters
so I always thought
that’s why they call it the blues



As time flies along this Summer, good music can be found in so many places.
My cousin, Michael Boutrous, up in Bismarck, North Dakota, has been sending
me some gems. I include a few here. The Parquet Courts song, “North Dakota,”
I send back to the Great Plains for Mike.
Very cool Afrikan psychedelic music is widely available these days, with groups
like Tinariwen, Bombino, Tamikrest leading the way. A nice tune included here
by the Egyptian musician / guitarist Omar Khorshid.
What can I say about Led Zeppelin? I like them, always have, so adding two
songs of theirs, from Led Zeppelin I and III.
Lastly, a group of great new bands have come along, ones I include here in
Episode #8 are First Aid Kit, Strand of Oaks, The Apache Relay. Warpaint does
a pretty nice cover of Bowie’s, "Ashes To Ashes.” The rest fill in the spaces,
like grass covering the rolling hills below the tree line.

so enjoy the music,
Doc
