9 Great Alt-Rock Cover Songs

  • 4 months ago

There’s just something fun about learning to play one of your favourite songs for yourself…you know, learning the lyrics, figuring out the chords and the rhythm and deconstructing all the constituent parts… Then you get deeper…you begin to appreciate how everything fits together, the artistic decisions made by songwriter made, what kind of musical skill is required, the sort of production that was employed all that…and by the time you’ve learned the song, you’ve learned a whole lot of other things, too…and you’re probably a better musician as a result…this is why learning to play other people’s music is so important… Now let’s look at it from the other side…if a song can be interpreted multiple times by many different people and it still sounds good, then that is a great song… The best compositions not only sound great when played by a full band, but also sound great when performed by one person around a campfire… And finally, there’s the fan aspect of all this…people love to hear songs done in different ways by different artists…sometimes the cover is even better than the original—or, at the very least, is revealed to be something more in the hands of someone else… With all this in mind, I’ve assembled a list of cover songs…and we’re going to go through with them to determine what makes them (and the original) great…

Crematory Whoopsies

  • 4 months ago

Mistakes happen. Cremations happen. But few things capture our morbid imagination like cremation mistakes happening. Whether it’s the horror of cremating your coworker, a misplaced corpse on the way to America’s first modern cremation, or plumes of “human remains particulate” interrupting your Best Buy shopping experience, nothing fans the flames of our phobias like a cremation blunder. This week we talk about things that can go right, wrong, and sideways when you’re in the business of cremating corpses.

Episode 6: “Manet & Morisot & Manet”

  • over 2 years ago

“Her name is Berthe Morisot, and she is a curiosity.” – Le Figaro, 1880 Welcome back to The Land of Desire, a French history podcast dedicated to exploring all the weird adventures, mysteries and surprising backstories behind French cultural icons. This week’s episode continues my new series which I’m really excited about: La Belle Époque, the Golden Age of Paris. This week I’ll focus on one of my favorite artists and female heroes, the Impressionist painter Berthe Morisot. I wish I could devote an entire series to Berthe’s story, but today I’m going to focus on one of the more interesting, and underpublicized, aspects of her life: her complex relationship with Edouard Manet…and his brother, Eugene. Zut alors! Christmas must have been awkward at the Manet household… This week, put on your painter’s smock and join me as we discuss the inner lives of “Manet & Morisot & Manet”. Episode 6: “Manet & Morisot & Manet” Selected Paintings by Berthe Morisot: The Cradle, 1872. Julie Daydreaming, 1894. Woman at Her Toilette, 1880. Summer’s Day, 1879. Portraits of a Lady: The Balcony, Edouard Manet, 1869. The Rest, Edouard Manet, 1870. Berthe Morisot in Pink Slipper, Edouard Manet, 1870. Berthe Morisot With Fan, Edouard Manet, 1874. Given as a gift to Berthe and Eugene on the occasion of their wedding. Berthe Morisot with Violets, Edouard Manet, 1872. This portrait hung in the bedroom of Julie Manet. Further Reading: I can’t recommend Sue Roe’s The Private Lives of the Impressionists highly enough. It’s terrific, I’ve reread it multiple times, and it was one of my original inspirations for beginning this podcast. I’ve recommended it before, but you may also enjoy Ross King’s The Judgment of Paris.   Sources: Dawn of the Belle Époque (Mary McAuliffe, 2011) Berthe Morisot (Anne Higonnet, 1995) The Private Lives of the Impressionists (Sue Roe, 2007) The post Episode 6: “Manet & Morisot & Manet” appeared first on The Land of Desire.

How New Orleans Could Set a New Course for Bail Reform

  • 4 months ago

New Orleans could become the battleground for bail reform. The city has one of the highest per capita incarceration rates in the world. And most people are there because they can’t pay their bail. The current arrangement with the local bail industry gives the impression that judges there could have a financial conflict of interest when setting bail. In this episode, Sonia Paul digs into how an ongoing lawsuit, pretrial consequences of bail, and poverty, bias, and algorithms come into play.

Joey prevented a kidnapping WWTL 10

  • 3 months ago

What you’re about to read is based on a criminal complaint and investigation. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. This happened in Waldo, Wisconsin. Thursday, September 27, 2018. Just after lunchtime, around 1 pm. Dean Hoffman entered the home of his former girlfriend, whose name I’m not going to mention. He was not invited in; he came in without permission. She told him to leave, and she started to call the police. He stopped her from calling, grabbed her by the waist, and pushed her backwards into the stairs that led to the second floor. He pulled her hair, ripped her shirt, and dragged her up the stairs. He punched her, causing a bloody nose and a black eye. He locked them both in the bathroom for about a half hour while she tended to her bloody nose. Then he tied her up, and kept her from leaving her own house for the next several hours. He even used HER phone to text her children, who lived nearby, telling them that she was sick and not to visit for a few days. Then he made a mistake. He ordered a pizza from Dominos. The delivery driver that brought the pizza was Joey Grundl. While the suspect was checking the pizza, Joey was able to make eye contact with the victim, and she communicated with him silently that she needed help. And because Joey was alert and willing to help, the story has a happy ending. The woman is safe, and Dean Hoffman is behind bars. Pretty exciting night for a guy who expected to just bring some food and collect some money. Like most people who are in some kind of situation like this, he said he doesn’t consider himself a hero. But he is. And check this out – not long after this happened, Joey was at a Taylor Swift concert and she actually recognized him from when she saw this story on the news, because on the news story he was wearing some Taylor Swift merch. He was invited backstage after the concert and got to meet her. That story is here. If you’d like to contact Joey and congratulation him on his quick thinking, you can contact him at jgrundlcrew27@gmail.com. And if you want to get some really cool content on a regular basis, including a photo of Joey when he met Taylor Swift, follow me on Instagram, @whatwasthatlike.

NASA's Human Computers

  • over 2 years ago

During World War II, a labor shortage obliged the military to hire African American women with mathematical skills to help make complicated computations for warplane designs. This small team of black women faced discrimination but eventually would help NASA astronauts land on the moon. One woman whose grandmother was a "computer" helps tell the story.

Episode 14: Musician Amy Helm on Records, Coffee, and Learning From the Greats

  • almost 2 years ago

This week's guest is musician Amy Helm. She’s a singer-songwriter based in Woodstock, New York, and she released her first solo album, “Didn’t It Rain,” in 2015. I remember hearing her sing with the band Ollabelle when I used to live in New York City — they were a gospel-ish collective that played around town, and I always loved her soulful voice. Later, I learned that she came by her musical abilities honestly: her father is the late Levon Helm, drummer for The Band. She was in Louisville last fall when she was touring with the Tedeschi Trucks Band, and I was able to get her into the studio to talk about her five things.

21. Apollo 11 Historic Site

  • almost 2 years ago

Even before I started working in the museum field, I was thinking about the future museum at the Apollo 11 landing site at Tranquility Base on the moon. The site is special. No matter how the human experiment turns out, the site will represent the first step off earth. Now Tranquility Base is a pile of historical artifacts in their original context. Even the astronauts' footprints in the delicate, powder-like dust of the lunar surface are still there. How should we treat this well-preserved historic site? What will the museum at the site have to say to future visitors, all of whom took the same journey as the Apollo 11 astronauts?Museum Archipelago has some ideas (and more questions).

Alan Lightman: Wasting Time is Good For You (Bonus Episode)

  • 8 months ago

Are you slavishly devoted to your to-do list, rushing around to fit every vacant area of time to a task? In this day and age, most of us are—and it's doing no favors to our creativity, our minds, and our very humanity. Something's got to give, and Alan Lightman has a plan. Or, rather, a lack of one. And that's perfect. In this episode of Simplify, the MIT professor, scientist and novelist offers an antidote to how we live today. He underscores the importance of wasting time, revealing how unstructured time with no goal, unplugged from the wired world, can actually make you a better version of yourself. Tune in to learn how procrastination sparks your creativity and makes you even more productive and how wasting time is essential for establishing a solid sense of self.

Mini Myths # 44 - The Hindenburg Disaster

  • almost 3 years ago

The 1937 Hindenburg disaster was one of the most dramatic events of the 20th century. And it certainly was dramatically reported. But what if the report we're used to hearing was partly the result of a mechanical error in the recording equipment? What if the emotion that comes through in the "oh the humanity" quote was inadvertently enhanced through this error? Would the disaster "sound" different to us if we heard the genuine report?

Professor Buzzkill # 63 - Hitler, Jesse Owens, and the 1936 Berlin Olympics

Hitler storming out of the stadium after Jesse Owens won the 100-meter dash in the 1936 Berlin Olympics is one of most enduring images we have of the tumultuous history of Nazi Germany. Hitler famously “snubbed” Jesse Owens and all African-American athletes because of his ideas of Aryan racial superiority. But did it actually happen? And did it happen the way we usually think?

She opens up about what happened that day-- and why, as she puts it, she’s a “terrible loser.” And it turns out, there’s more to it than you might think.The Secret to Victory is hosted by Domonique Foxworth.

Inspiring Young People to Make a Difference, One Lawn at a Time — Rodney Smith, Jr.

  • 10 months ago

When Rodney Smith, Jr. spots someone in need, he jumps into action. There's no question, doubt, or debate. He just does the work to help them—and he's now rallying others to help communities across the United States. Rodney, a native of Bermuda, started Raising Men Lawn Care Service, an organization that provides free yard services to elders, people with disabilities, veterans, and single-parent mothers. The service matches up youth in local communities with people in need of service. This two-way impact helps children become a positive part of the community learning social skills and giving back, and the recipients receive assistance with maintaining their yards. This service and the positive news of Rodney's work has spread across the US (and multiple countries too!) and continues to grow, with local chapters, and children signing up for the 50 Yard Challenge. In addition, Rodney brings his family (his name for his thriving and very engaged online community) together to help other members of his local community. He's been helping people that are homeless, by providing resources and food, collected and provided by his family. I met Rodney at his home in Huntsville, AL and we got right back on the road. I wanted to see firsthand how the service works. We spent the afternoon taking care of a yard and then learning more about the homeless community he's been helping. This was truly an immersive experience. After multiple conversations and experiences at a yard, in a homeless camp, in the car, and back at Rodney's house, I couldn't be more inspired by how much Rodney cared about the people in his community. Interestingly, it didn't seem like a big deal to him. Instead he just told me "it was the right thing to do." This was an amazing day, and I took a couple important ideas away from it: help however you can, and each of us can be the change at any time. Also, this trip was a beautiful reminder to get out of our bubbles (social and geographical) to see different parts of the world, and learn and connect with people different than ourselves.

When Bad People Create Good Art

  • 9 months ago

In the MeToo era, so many creative people are being outed as bullies, sexual predators, and worse. And for journalists who cover arts and entertainment, it’s been a bit of a tightrope: How can you write about House of Cards or The Cosby Show ever again without the work feeling hopelessly tainted? And are they still great shows, even if their stars or creators aren't?            How do you investigate claims of harassment if no one will talk, and a star's publicist won't let you near their client? What excellent works of art or storytelling were never made because bad men got in the way? A few weeks ago Kurt Andersen participated in a panel to talk about some of these questions with other journalists and critics. The panel was called “When Bad People Create Good Art: Writing About Culture in the #MeToo Era.” It was held at the Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York. The panel was moderated by Janice C. Simpson, director of the Arts and Culture Reporting Program at CUNY, and also included: Nekesa Moody, Global Entertainment and Style Editor of the Associated Press; A.O. Scott, film critic of The New York Times. "I like to think about the people who didn't get a chance, people who were in their path who were harmed, how they're doing,” said Maureen Ryan, Chief TV Critic at Variety, who also was on the panel. “I think a lot about that.”This podcast was produced by Studio 360's Jocelyn Gonzales.Learn more about your ad choices.

Cover Me Softly

  • 12 months ago

When Lori Lieberman was 19 years old, she went to a concert of a singer she didn't know, and ended up writing a poem that would become one of the greatest cover songs of all time. This week we are going to look at the art of covering in popular music, and how that art marked the conversion from a classical model of musical aesthetics to a contemporary one. Popular music in the modern era is metaphysically complex due to the fact that its listeners make very fine-grained judgments about artistic merit and quality. We are going to talk about the stories behind some of the most iconic cover songs in the rock era, analyze an iconic song with Switched on Pop podcast host Nate Sloan, and transform all of it into the philosophy of music. Guests include Ray Padgett, Nate Sloan, Cristyn Magnus, and P.D. Magnus.

His madcap energy is on full display when he joins Anna and Sim for this week's episode of "Unqualified." Among other memorable moments, Jason shares an outrageous story about how one unfortunate incident forever changed his "laissez-faire attitude towards farting." Anna and Jason also showcase their improv skills by role-playing a scene in which a stoner college drop-out (Jason) applies for a job as the second assistant to a powerful movie studio executive (Anna). The gang also handles some tricky calls this week. First, they talk to a caller whose gay BFF set her up with a man who he himself has a crush on. Then, Jason and Anna have a heart-to-heart with a woman whose family disapproves of her dating a Jewish man.

Humble Heinz Ketchup: When Last was First – Episode 18

  • 8 months ago

Journalist and author Eleanor Foa Dienstag joins Tim to tell the story behind the humble Heinz Ketchup bottle in our fridge, its journey to our hearts and homes, and the people who made it one of the most iconic food brands in America. http://traffic.libsyn.com/shapingopinion/Heinz_Ketchup_-_When_Last_was_First_-_Episode_18_final.mp3 We spend this episode with a focus on the history of one of America’s most iconic condiments, Heinz Ketchup, which was a big part of a corporate history Eleanor once wrote for the Heinz Company. Her  book was called In Good Company: 125 Years at the Heinz Table. Our discussion explores how the evolution of ketchup has followed step-by-step with American business, culture and society, food trends, and marketing. When people think of ketchup they think of Heinz; when they think of Heinz, they think of ketchup, but it wasn’t always that way. The change occurred over many decades but accelerated from the 1960s through the 1980s. Ketchup remains one of the most broadly used products in the grocery category, found in over 97 percent of all U.S. households and four out of five restaurants. Heinz is the world’s largest buyer of tomatoes. 2 million tons per year.  Heinz sells 11 billion ketchup packets per year. Malcolm Gladwell wrote a piece in 2004 for The New Yorker where he described how Heinz became dominant in the ketchup market by focusing on all five of the condiment's flavor attributes. It used to be just a salty and bitter, but then Heinz increased thickness, increased the sourness with acidity from concentrated vinegar; and the company doubled the sweetness. The History of Heinz Ketchup Ketchup was invented in 1876. Do you know who invented it and how it came to be part of Heinz’s early product mix? Before Heinz, it was largely considered a home-made concoction you’d make in your kitchen. The Heinz company was launched seven years later, and ketchup was one of its first products. Ketchup was on of the first bottled products, along with horseradish, pickles, mustard and vinegar. The company introduced its iconic octagon glass bottle with its keystone label and neck band around 1900. Heinz had an obsession with efficiency and quality, so it decided the best way to make the best processed food was to locate production near quality farmland, so the ketchup plant is right next to the fields where the tomatoes are grown. Marketing: When Last was First From the 1960s through the 1980s, Heinz Ketchup went from just another condiment to a mainstay in the American diet through improvements on the agricultural front, technological front, but also in the area of marketing. Ketchup only had 23.6% of the market in the 1960s, comparable to Hunt’s. Both companies had deemed the tomato ketchup category "mature." Then Heinz recruited talent and some strategies from Procter & Gamble. Heinz  lowered ketchup's price slightly, introduced a television advertising campaign, and it added a 26-ounce “Ketchup lover’s ketchup” with a wide-mouth bottle, which created more shelf space in grocery stores. Much of this was an outgrowth of a decision Heinz made to hire ad agency Doyle Dane Bernbach. These strategies led to immediate growth in Heinz ketchup sales.  While the company had to remove the wide-mouth ketchup bottle from the market over product quality issues, the growth trend had begun. The company had done focus groups with consumers, taking a page from Procter & Gamble marketing, and found consumers wanted thicker, richer ketchup. The television spots illustrated this through comparison advertising, showing how Heinz ketchup "lost" a race to see which ketchup would run out of the bottle fastest. A companion ad showed how Heinz Ketchup stayed in place on a paper plate, while a competitor brand ran off the plate, creating a liquidy mess.  Sales climbed. Heinz Quantifies Brand Equity The H.J. Heinz 2005 Annual Report featured a page from Gary Stibe...

S2 E1: July 16, 1996

  • 10 months ago

On the morning of July 16, 1996, someone walked into a furniture store in downtown Winona, Mississippi, and murdered four employees. Each was shot in the head. It was perhaps the most shocking crime the small town had ever seen. Investigators charged a man named Curtis Flowers with the murders. What followed was a two-decade legal odyssey in which Flowers was tried six times for the same crime. He remains on death row, though some people believe he's innocent. For the second season of In the Dark, we spent a year digging into the Flowers case. We found a town divided by race and a murder conviction supported by questionable evidence. And it all began that summer morning in 1996 with a horrifying crime scene that left investigators puzzled. Support investigative journalism with a donation to In the Dark.

Jeff Tweedy Didn't Want to Take His Doctor On Tour Because the Doctor Was Terrible

  • over 1 year ago

Long before Jeff Tweedy was the founder and leader of the enormously popular band Wilco, he was a kid in Illinois with severe migraines and a tendency toward anxiety and depression. He cycled through alcohol, marijuana, and, finally, opioids to try to get to the point of feeling normal and okay, even relying on a fan who worked at Walgreen's to score him the pills he wanted. Finally, a stint in rehab and a return of self-confidence got him back on track. There's a really sad and darkly funny story in this episode involving a teddy bear and a jar.

Bailing Out

  • 11 months ago

“Eject, eject, eject!” Most of us are experienced at bailing out of social situations, but what about airplanes? Fewer than 1% of military pilots ever pull the eject handle, but they all know what comes next.The canopy blows, and the pilot is (literally!) rocketed up and out. Now what? In this episode, we’ll learn how pilots train to get out and back down to Earth safely, and we’ll hear from someone who did it (upside down, at 23,000 feet!). Join Emily, Matt, and Nick as they discuss the ins and outs of bailing out. Update: We heard from a squadron mate of Chris’, who reminisced about the first time he heard the story (over the radio before Chris and Snake bailed out, and after they were safely recovered). He enjoyed the retelling, but corrected us about one thing: the canopy of an F-14 can actually hover momentarily above the cockpit in the event of an ejection, specifically when the aircraft is in a flat spin, as seen in Top Gun. The procedure for F-14 crews in the event of a confirmed flat spin was to release the canopy manually a few seconds before pulling the eject handle. Many thanks to this listener for correcting the record. We welcome listener feedback anytime via airspace@si.edu.

What the Heck Happened in Hawaii?

  • about 1 year ago

It may seem like ages ago, but the false alarm about a missile heading towards Hawaii hasn't left our minds. Last week, Shannon Togawa Mercer interviewed a group of experts on the event: Stephan Haggard, political science professor at the University of California, San Diego; Garrett Graff, author and journalist; Juliette Kayyem, former assistant secretary for intergovernmental affairs in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); and Paul Rosenzweig, Lawfare masthead contributing editor and former deputy assistant secretary for policy at DHS all joined in.
