It's April 8th and I haven't done my taxes yet... I have a week to get everything in order, maybe I picked up some bad habits by going to the General Post Office on 34th St in Manhattan to see the Tax Day chaos in years past. There was always a weird vibe, with truly late filers playing 'chicken' with the midnight deadline. I've got a week, though... better dig out the old pocket calculator:
It's great to watch that video of Kraftwerk doing their thing in 2013. My favorite part is the crowd singing along to Dentaku, the Japanese version of Pocket Calculator.
At any rate, I do have to get on the case, I don't have time to waste on Computer Games:
Gotta love that YMO, their appearance on Soul Train remains one of my favorite television moments.
Oddly enough, I haven't found any collaborations between these two giants of electronic music, but I did find a melancholy YMO jazz cover version of Radioactivity from a 2013 'No Nukes' concert:
I wish I had the time to hunt down all evidence of a possible YMO/Kraftwerk collaboration, but I've got a important task ahead of me.
