Pop! & Circumstance
Popcast #589


(Catherine Deneuve in Le Parapluies de Cherbourg)

Dear friends, 

Its been stormy around these parts. It may "never rain in southern california…" but it shoure does rain up north. Local news stations are fearmongering it up; FLOODING! DOWNED POWER LINES! STORES ARE OUT OF BATTERIES! NO MORE TWINKIES! And the roads make for some pretty nasty driving, ugh. Good thing I can rely on my private pop-o-copter to get me from my studio in the Swiss Alps to my Sactown shack. And also, good thing I've put together almost an HOUR'S WORTH OF SONGS ABOUT INCLEMENT WEATHER! We at P&C guarantee you will enjoy losing yourself in this blustery soundscape, especially if you're warm and dry inside. In the off-chance that you're listening to this popcast in the rain on a transistor radio, we would actually advise you to head under shelter to avoid electrocution*. The last thing I will mention is that I'm really bummed I forgot to include the Who's "Love Reign O'er Me" in this popcast. That, and I really wish I was sipping a hot toddy right now (lé sigh..).
