When I resolved to start weekly entries built mainly around web clips, I assumed I (and humankind) would have a lot more going on. Fortunately, the internet is a gift that keeps on giving. Here are some good corners of it:
- Are you bummed about the MLB season’s indefinite delay? Well, PBS has put all 18 hours of Ken Burns’ Baseball up for free streaming. Batter Up.
- I will never get sick of this oral history of ‘Homer at the Bat,’ and apparently neither has Sportsnet, who republished it recently.
- Some elementary school teacher (as far as I can tell) made a great Google Spreadsheet of virtual tours you can take that are fun for you and your kids. Thanks, Mrs. Fahrney, wherever you are.
- Speaking of elaborate Google Docs, Cherie Hu put together a living list of Livestreaming Events looking to fill some of the gaping hole left by all the music festivals that shuttered. Get into it.
- A friend and former colleague of mine from Tennessee wrote this essay for the Polyphony about moving music education online.
- Marxist economist Michael Roberts breaks down how the virus was a condition of the market was a condition of the virus was a condition of the market was a…
- Dollar Country, a crate digger/podcaster out of Cleveland, has posted three free hours of hyper-obscure country 45s that you never realized how much you needed.
To wrap this up, I’ll share a song that helped me out a lot earlier this week. It’s the second track (and possibly my favorite) on The Afghan Whigs’ 1965, one of my favorite albums of all time. I was sitting at home for what was going to be the first of an indeterminate number of nights at home, feeling a bit of anxiety, when this came on, and put me in a better place. Hopefully it does the same for you. Talk to you all soon.
Hey Tyler, Thanks for a great little list of online goodies. Hope you’re keeping well and enjoying the new job (current weird world situation excepted). This could be an interesting time for incredibly localised music clips, i.e. completely shot at home. In fact, maybe I’m going to do just that! Cheers, Amie

I acknowledge the Wathaurung people, the traditional owners of the land on which I live and work, and pay my respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
Hey Amie- I look forward to seeing these, and I’ll gladly link whatever you produce in next week’s list! Hope you’re well, too.
