Delicate Steve

Delicate Steve's second album, Positive Force, is out July 10 on Luaka Bop and you can download two tracks from the album at the top of this post. If you'd like to hear more, Delicate Steve has devised a sort of scavenger hunt, installing playbutton devices in ten locations throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, each containing one of Positive Force's tracks. The two-borrough musical installation is up now (5/31) through June 3. Locations of all ten tracks are below -- it's supposed to be a nice weekend, might be a fun thing to do. If you do decide to try and find them, bring your own headphones which you can plug into the playbutton devices.

In other news, Delicate Steve is currently on tour with tUnE-yArDs which hits Terminal 5 on Friday (6/1) with Micachu & the Shapes on the bill for that one as well. Once that tour wraps up, Steve will join Yeasayer on the road before doing his own headlining shows on the West Coast. All Delicate Steve tour dates are below.

In one scene in Aladdin, Genie calls Al’s clothes “so 3rd Century.” Genie has been trapped in the lamp for 10,000 years, so there’s no way he could know of the fashion trends which have happened since he’s been trapped. Which means the latest Genie could have been trapped in the lamp is the 3rd Century. If he spent 10,000 years inside the lamp, it is now AT LEAST the year 10,300 AD when he gets out.

The only conclusion is that Aladdin takes place IN THE FUTURE. A post-apocalyptic world where only Arab culture (and some Greek) survived. It has been so long that the name “Arabia” has been corrupted to “Agrabah.” The Muslim religion has atrophied to the point where there are no mosques, Imams, or prayer mats, but people still give praise to Allah in moments of happiness. Amazing technological marvels left behind by the previous civilization, like sentient flying carpets or genetically engineered parrots which comprehend human speech instead of just mimic it, are taken for granted by the locals or considered “magic”.

Genie proves this by making impressions of ancient, long-dead celebrities like Groucho Marx, Jack Nicholson, etc.
