MOVEMENTS Side A and B
On the move - as always, in and around Burma, Thailand, and S and SE Asia.
But: the lady and I will be returning to the US for graduate work very soon. Here, looking back, looking forward, much movement to come.
Note - this began as a 2012 year-end thing, then it was for Chinese New Year, then Burmese New Year/Thingyan, and now here we are. So, emphasis on 2012 with some cheating here and there. Enjoy and be nice.

Curtain Closers Commence
Aw man, picture is small. Anyway, check this list. Many good things.
My own year-end mixes to come soon / stay tuned.
E(a)rnest Greene goes soft-rock, I like. Shades of Destroyer’s latest?
Is there a good reason I shouldn’t find this actually quite compelling?

Destroyer: ‘It’s Gonna Take An Airplane’
For all you Kaputt partisans out there, a throwback from Your Blues. That was last decade!
MP3: Destroyer: ‘It’s Gonna Take An Airplane’
I gather it’s Tan Shun Cheng’s ‘Love You 365 Days’ - solid stuff as always from ASEAM.
