IN THIS ISSUE OF COSMIK DEBRIS:
Jazz producer and record label honcho Joel Dorn makes his third Cosmik Debris appearance. Why? He's a blast to interview, that's why; Eric Blumrich discusses the fine art of making political statements through Flash graphic presentations on the web, and trust me, it is art when this guy does it; The Coma Savants' keyboardist, vocalist and songwriter, Stephanie Rearick, discusses her outstanding new solo CD, The Bucket Rider; The 13 O'Clock News covers the White House, Iraq, the ALCS and NLCS, the Gates and more. Plus plenty of reviews of all kinds and some columns to chew on. All in the October issue of Cosmik Debris Magazine.
The Halloween edition of Cosmik Radio, affectionately
known as "The Cosmik Debris Halloween Thingy,"
will be Online from October 28th through November 10th.
You just need a RealAudio
Player to listen.
If you don't have one, go pick
one up. Cosmik Radio is just
the kind of Net-Only audio that radio
station program directors don't
want you getting hooked on. So go
THE FCC RULING: SOMETIMES THE SYSTEM WORKS! - Congratulations, Americans, many of you worked together to defeat a very bad idea that would have destroyed the last bastions of media balance in your cities. As Karl Cable will inform you, however, the battle isn't over yet. Not by a longshot.
JOEL DORN DOES DEBRIS: CHAPTER THREE - It's our third interview with record producer Joel Dorn. Why would we do that? Because the first two were so much fun, why else? Shaun Dale got to do all three of 'em, too. Join them for some fun conversation.
COSMIK QUICKIE: ERIC BLUMRICH - Flash drives a lot of people crazy. It's all over the Web. Log onto a site and before you know what hit you, you're stuck in someone's silly presentation. Eric Blumrich does Flash, too, but his is something you want to click on over and over. This is political performance art via the computer. Right winger extremists, beware: you might just be starring in the latest Blumrich production. Rusty Pipes talks over the operation with Mr. Blumrich.
COSMIK QUICKIE: STEPHANIE REARICK - The voice, piano and songwriter behind the Coma Savants releases her second solo album, Bucket Rider, and since she's one of the most interesting musicians you've probably never heard of, we decided she'd be a perfect subject for a Cosmik Quickie. (Interview by DJ Johnson.)
TIME FOR THE THIRTEEN O'CLOCK NEWS - Dubya's shadow government; Gates gives 'em the boot; Yankee Redrockum Sockum Robots; Rush is an easy target, so what could we do?; Jay and Ben-Lo.. or something like that; A gov't poll you must take. Seriously. It's required. Seriously. You WILL take it or disappear. Three words, buddy: The Patriot Act, okay? Good.
CD & RECORD REVIEWS - Bunches and bunches of silvery slabs that make music when attacked by lasers. Sci-Fi? No, it's Cosmik reviews.
EVERYTHING ELSE IN REVIEW - The place where we keep the reviews of all things that aren't CDs or records. We have books, movies, DVDs and concerts to tell you about this month, so pop on in.
CLOSET PHILOSOPHY - In honor of Halloween, the subject this month is Satan. You think you're an expert? Let's find out what the hell you know about it.
COSMIK BLUES - Eric Steiner reports on an evening of live blues featuring Tommy Castro, Coco Montoya, and Duke Robillard.
POLITICAL FLYBY - DJ Johnson gives you a quick guided tour of some of the more interesting landmarks on the current political landscape.
PIGSHIT by GARY PIG GOLD - Gary pays tribute to the late great Johnny Cash.
