Fleshing out the fleshless

The second installment of Frequency Rotation -- my new science-fiction-music-blog -- is up at This week: the astounding and otherworldly Janelle MonĂ¡e. I've got lots of crazy songs, both amazing and entrancingly terrible, lined up for the near future, so bookmark them shits!

No descriptions for my place and mind

This Mortal Coil did a beautiful version of this song, but no one could ever touch the original. Gene Clark made clocks stop, hearts whisper, words die.

Freqency Rotation live on

My new weekly blog at, Frequency Rotation, is up. Each week I'll track down a different SF/fantasy-themed song, post the video, and talk about its awesomeness and significance (or lack thereof). Song suggestions, of course, are always welcome. Needless to say, it's an honor to be included on the roster, and I am stoked to get the ball rolling. Plus, I'll take any excuse to inflict a Rezillos video on the world.

And I'm blogging in a most peculiar way...

My new feature--a brief history of science-fiction-themed albums--just want live over at Clarkesworld. Granted, it's an extremely brief history--and I'm already kicking myself for leaving off Janelle Monae's awesome The ArchAndroid--but I think think the article came it pretty rad. Plus, I'll take any excuse to write about the Jonzun Crew.

In related news: My new blog for will be starting soon. It's called Frequency Rotation, and it'll be a weekly rundown of a different science-fiction/fantasy-themed song. As for the first geeky jam I'll be covering, I'll give you a hint: I took the title of the blog from the song's lyrics. Guess now or forever hold your peace. No Googling! Winner gets a lovingly handcrafted wedgie.
