I admit it, I succumbed to the advertisements, so I DVRed what I expect to be an abortion of a TV show, Stars Make Stripes (did I get that right? do I care?). I haven't looked yet, but I doubt that I'll continue it. I guess I just have to see how bad a waste of money it was.
I spent much of last evening watching/listening to the videos for the Listening to World Music class; this week it's pygmy music. I figure it'll be Baka Beyond, and such-like. They've already mentioned Herbie Hancock's Watermelon Man, and how it came from a style of the pygmies, and then a Madonna song whose name I've already forgotten that she admits was stimulated by Hancock's work. Cross-pollination.
