Excuse our dust… (updates, videos, fun)

Some combination of nasty airborne particulates, awful heat, ill-advised all-nighters, catching up on FAIL Blog and various little stressers has resulted in a full week without updates to Funny Ha Ha. And yet, much has happened in that time. There’s a new installment of INCHES (number 5!), new show picks (including a night of indie rock from the Far East!), some bad news for vinyl heads (or good, if you’re in the market), and also, I suck all of the fun out of a local semi-super group called Music Go Music (here). These entries are being retroactively added to the site so as to hide my (lack of) tracks. And speaking of tracks, here’s what I purchased at Amoeba this week. (More after the jump.)

Bob Dylan – “Visions Of Johanna”
[replacing a lost copy of Blonde On Blonde Remastered]

Company Flow – “8 Steps To Perfection”
[remastered on Def Jux’s Funcrusher Plus reissue]

John Lurie National Orchestra – “Men With Sticks (Noble Version)”
[from the quite rare Men With Sticks — Amoeba had it used for $7.95]

Mt. Eerie – “Wind Speaks” live
[studio version found on Wind’s Poem, highly recommended on vinyl]
