For Zach Fountain, last Sunday proved to be a somewhat unsettling day.
“I kept having this feeling that I was missing some kind of very important meeting,” he said, with a nervous little laugh. “I just felt odd all day.”
The explanation is simple. March 7 was the first Sunday in a year that Fountain was not in the back room of his Tulsa home, recording a song he had written just days before.James D. Watts Jr., Tulsa World

Music blog Bucket Full of Nails included the like they do in movies song “ufos” on February 27’s playlist, along with Colleen Green, Houndmouth, Pete Greenwood, Pretend Sweethearts, Riverboat Gamblers, The Deep Dark Woods, The Martha’s Vineyard Ferries, The Whereabouts, and Town Mountain. Have a listen! The blog has a long list of well-curated weekly playlists, so check it out and discover some new music. You always need new music, right?
Fun fact: I first heard about The Deep Dark Woods (whose “Westside Street” is featured on the playlist) from a very nice stranger at a killer Dawes show in Las Vegas, NV back in 2011. Nice to have our paths cross in the digital world.
Because there’s always more to talk about when it comes to space aliens, Mothman and other weird things that definitely exist, I recently joined a panel discussion on this special edition of Lucy Steigerwald’s Politics for People Who Hate Politics podcast, appropriately titled Space Aliens for People Who Hate Politics. We didn’t discuss Buddy Holly’s abduction and subsequent years as king of Ganymede, because that would take hours.
Lock your doors, close your blinds, and put on your tinfoil hat.
I joined Lucy Steigerwald of The Stag Blog along with a panel of, er, fellow conspiracy theory enthusiasts for a chat about secret societies, the government, aliens, cryptids, and everything else that may or may not be out to get you. Watch it, if you dare.
Our chat – my second time on Politics for People Who Hate Politics – reminded me of my old song about aliens and paranoia, “the alien.” Knowing it was only a matter of time before the Men in Black get me, I decided it was time to give it a proper release. Well, that and I’ve been a horrible slacker when it comes to Patreon.
