Friday Jams Fest

  1. It’s 1988, and the kids have finally figured out that they can dance to punk rock rather than slam into each other, as D.C.’s activist/populist combo Fugazi pumps out the groove:

  2. …we feature Denver’s own Eugene Fodor, who, for a time, was one of the best violinists alive.

    He was a child prodigy who first soloed with the Denver Symphony when he was only ten years old.  He won the Paganini competition in Italy in 1972 when he was 22 years old, and shared the top prize in the Tchaikovsky competition in Moscow at age 24.  He was referred to in some circles as the Mick Jagger of classical music.  His career went into a tailspin after a 1980 drug bust.  He died March 5 of cirrhosis of the liver at age 60, which is younger than I am.  He was buried this week.

    A victim of lost youth?  Another casualty of substance abuse?  A talented meteor who lit the world and then flamed out too soon?  Probably all of the above.  See Jackson, Michael.

    Here he was a long time ago, on an old Perry Como show, playing Capriccio-Valse, Op. 7, by Henri Wieniawski.

    I gotta stop reading the obituaries.

  3. Siousxie and the Banshees, cleaned up and happy with life…

    Even though I love this album, I had “Kiss in the Dreamhouse” cranked up last night…

      1. Because of vastly improved modern construction practices, fires are much less of a threat than even 20 years ago. Several studies found that many cities employed far too many firefighters, and many cities were on the verge of cuts when 9/11 made it political infeasible to cut fire departments. The cuts should still happen.

        1. I won’t mention them by name, since I try to keep my politics separate from my community office.

          While fires have gone down, medic and psychiatric (includes domestic violence, substance abuse, and other emergencies) are way up. More older people = more heart attacks and stroke, too. Many of our uniformed people are trained as medics, as well. There is also an increase (due to unemployment and increasing poverty) of people who wait until a medical emergency happens before going to the doctor or hospital.
