remembered that my tuition bill is,
as of yet, unpaid, and that the cat's
litter box really does need to be
changed. I have to admit the music
does have an effect, and I do,
admittedly, own a few Michael
Hedges albums, some Shadow Fax
recordings, and a couple of Andreas
Vollenveider's records. I insist,
however, that the effect produced by
Greg Brown (a man whose children
I would happily bear) on my per-
sona are far more realistic and tan-
gible and that Nat King Cole, Judy
Garland, Doris Day, Sarah
Vaughan, and the amazing Alberta
Hunter can still steal my heart.
In effect, my promo reads as fol-
lows: George Winston is an incred-
ibly talented pianist. Albeit his
commercially-induced decision to
record only his mood-altering
works, his concerts are a hell of a
lot more exciting and invigorating
than his recordings. If you can put
aside your desire to send Shirley
Maclaine back to one of her previ-
ous lives and if your olfactory sense
can put up with the patchouli,
Winston is a good bet for a night of
melodic entertainment. Be ready to
relax at first, his openers usually
consist of the music he's best
known for: New Age.
GEORGE WINSTON will be

Mission: Impossible's gigs, with
all their manic fury, are bound to
create memorable incidents. Kantoff
recalled one time, "when I looked
up and Andy was not where he was
supposed to be. He was across the
bar, bent over backwards, with a
guy pouring a beer down his throat,
but he didn't miss a note." And if
you want to know how an Ann Ar-
bor police car got its windows
knocked out and its tires slashed,
you'll have to ask Carr yourself.

our prime-time TV viewing with
Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman
and Lee Majors as the Six Million
Dollar Man. Who do kids watch
today? Mr. T? ,
Children's shows today are as
mild as a bowl of, cold grits.
Where's the global perspective?
Kids I grew up with liked to see the
Japanese series Ultra Man and
watch him fight battles in space
against creatures who were
threatening earth. Every time the
warning light in Ultra Man's chest
lit up (indicating his life was run-
ning out), we'd start screaming for
him to hurry up and get rid of his
enemy before his time would run
out and he'd die. I remember how
sad our fifth grade class was the day
after the final Ultra Man episode.
You see, he was free to hurt his
enemy monsters but forbidden to
harm a human being. During the
final episode, he accidentally killed
a person, and his bosses from space
banished him to roam the galaxy
forever, never to return to earth. But
we didn't grieve for long, because
we found another 150-foot monster-
fighting hero in Johnny Socko and
his Flying Robot.
Do kids today have educational
shows? Oh yeah, they have
Sesame Street, but Mr. Hooper and
David are both long dead, and Maria
and Luis have settled into being an
old married couple. Mr. Rogers is
still the lame-brained nut he always
was and hasn't changed his "Good
Morning, Boys and Girls" or the
early morning train ride through the
cardboard town in 10 years.
At least our generation, in addi-
tion to the above mentioned educa-
tional shows had Zoom, Big Blue
Marble, 3-2-1 Contact, and (drum
roll) The Electric Company (the
show that at one time featured Rita
Moreno and Irene Cara as regulars).
Remember their song, "The Electric
Company/We're gonna turn it
on/We're gonna bring you the
power/We're gonna show you the
truest word/that you ever heard
Well, what more can I say? Basi-
cally, there's no zing, zap, pow,
mighty shield, magic hammer,
Batmobile, or magic lasso in chil-
dren's programming today. I think
the entire cartoon industry is
culturally bankrupt and drained dry
