Video about The Flaming Lips’ The Soft Bulletin

I usually find “making of” documentaries to be either depressing, annoying, or both. But this documentary (embedded below) about The Flaming Lips’ The Soft Bulletin is enjoyable and inspiring.

They neatly avoid the temptations of describing the blow-by-blow trivialities, and of putting themselves under halos of “making history.” They more focus on the mystery that the music came together, and that they were able to be there and make it!

Site Launch: Liberation Trilogy

Over the holidays, we launched a new site for the author Rick Atkinson around his trilogy of books on World War II:

Liberation Trilogy Website

The third book in the series is coming out this May. The site contains multiple photo galleries with really interesting photos from World War II (some of which are not found in the books), along with a timeline of events from the books.

You can find the site at:
