Back in my college days, like many of my contemporaries, I read a number of “Dystopian” novels such as 1984 & Brave New World.
I remember one, set in the near future (like…now) in which the entire world was “Owned” by five (5) corporations, and they were all Insurance Companies.

This is the director’s cut of the film, which was first shot in 1971 and released in 1972. Pink Floyd had already had success with several albums, including “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn”, “Ummagumma” and “Meddle”. Much of the film was shot in the Roman amphitheater in Pompeii, without an audience, and the remaining footage was shot in a Paris television studio. Adrian Maben directed.
In 1974, it was re-edited with new parts- the Floyd working on recording “The Dark Side of the Moon” album at Abbey Road Studios and interviews with the band members were added. The Floyd had broken worldwide with “Dark Side” and they were superstars.
I just got through reading the 2013 Roadmap for US Robotics, a guide to the current state of robotics. It includes goals and expectations of robotics for the next 5, 10, and 15 year periods.
The good news is that robots will be able to do just about everything for us.

Here’s something that the town of Brattlboro does not “need”: a town slogan. But, it might be fun to try.
Capsule descriptions of Brattleboro in advertising tend to focus on our great downtown, natural beauty and the generalartsieness of the place.
I was thinking of going in a different direction:
“Brattleboro, Vt – in the shadow of the foothills of the Green Mountains!”

The Friends of Brooks Memorial Library was organized in 1990 to support the Library in providing the highest quality library service to the community by means of advocacy, public relations, and fund raising.
Twilight Music presents two shows with Vermont and Brooklyn-based contemporary folk singer/songwriter Anais Mitchell and her collaborator Jefferson Hamer, plus Irish singer/multi-instrumentalist Eamon O’Leary, at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery on Friday, April 12 at 7:00 and 9:00 pm.
Mitchell and Hamer are touring in support of “Child Ballads,” their new CD of traditional Celtic and British Isles ballads from Sir Francis James Child’s nineteenth century anthology. Recorded in Nashville, the songs are driven by two-guitar arrangements and the kind of close harmonies that call to mind Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris.

Saturday night on WVEW 107.7 FM features two of my favorite local radio programs.
Recycled Radio, hosted by Steven Twiss, is a musical time machine. Tune in at 6 pm each week to be transported back in time to the era of big bands and ballads.
What makes this a spectacular show is Twiss, who picks a date in history, does the research, and is able to weave popular songs, radio show excerpts, national news, and even local headlines into his steady, two-hour mix.
Often times, what goes around comes around, and the pressing issues of today correspond to what was going on in the 1940’s. A radio bulletin about a war effort sounds both distant and current.
I see the Reformer added more comics…but no more page space…time to get out the magnifying glass. Somehow I’m not surprised.
