What? By When?

Greetings from China...Here's some stuff to listen to while you're drawing...

Here's a site full of great audio- I have passed this on to a lot of people, now it's your turn.. this is an excerpt from a recent letter.
'... i've likely sung the praises of the A-infos Radio Project (google it) to you before. I have been downloading music and talks from this site since the mid 90's, soon as the web had some traction. The whole site is dedicated to alternative news sources, principally from college and university radio stations across the states and canada. it's my go- to for news and opinion, the WRIR radio station from virginia rebooted my interest in music,  for example... it does take a bit of picking around to find things, but best of all, the shows they broadcast are archived, and the archive is searchable, so you can always get more of the same. here's a top ten list for you:
( type these titles in the search bar)
-Unwelcome Guests- 2 hours of lectures talks and readings about a variety of topics, mostly with a leftish or anarchistic slant- always informative.

-Sunrise Ocean Bender- hippy trippy music, old and new from a chap about my age, alot of psychedelic, indy, metal and hippy stuff, never a mainstream or top 40 hit amongst them. mr atavist is a my music guru. he even dedicated an episode to me full of guns a'blazin stoner rock and funk.

-songs from the big hair- a show all about late 70s to late 80s music.

- Radio Ecoshock- from bc, environmental news views and blues from real experts- heavy shit, but better to know than not know.

- New World Notes- short half hour talks from the uni of connecticut- the dj is a bit of a tweed, but the talks are always interesting.

-GRNH- the global research news hour, out of a winnipeg college station, the kid always has interesting interviews.

TUC radio- short radio interviews and talks on a variety of subjects, all leaning to the left.

- bstf-  bob's slacktime funhouse- out of atlanta georgia, if you need a few raunchy laughs, suzie the floozie has you covered. i really like the LNI (lymph node institute) episodes for the freak factor.

i know audio isn't for everyone- alot of folks just fall asleep during a lecture, but the value of getting your news and info from other sources has never been greater. even the cbc and bbc have dropped the ball these days, and big media is putting a big self -interested spin on the news everywhere now.

the site takes a little digging, and its a low budget operation, so its spotty at times. I  donated to them a couple times to help the site stay up.

google or just google a-infos radio project. the search bar on the right will take you to archived shows.

yer welcome.
Years ago I was conducting life drawing classes for my crew at a studio in eastern Canada. 
I have many sketches of this girl- nearly a hundred in fact- but this gesture turned into quite a nice little haiku. The magic trick for life drawing poses is to ask for a twist of the shoulders, which means the entire torso shifts into some very exotic s curves.
It wants just a few more hits with the white, but for a 2 minute gesture, I'm happy with what I got.
Chalk pastel on cheap construction paper, 2 minutes.
Now in Beijing- doing boards on a movie project...
