  3. Ages and Ages' “Divisionary (Do The Right Thing)” is meant to be sung by as many people as possible.

    There’s a tune that you’ve probably heard throughout your life. It’s nine notes long, and it’s almost always used to signal that something vaguely Asian is happening or is about to happen.

    You know what I’m talking about. The tune’s most prominent role is probably in that 1974 song, “Kung Fu Fighting.” It comes in right as Carl Douglas is singing that anthemic “Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah.”

    The tune is ubiquitous. And like many things that are just in the air, few ever ask where it came from. But we did.

NPR Music master Lars Gotrich sups from his beastly mug at the morning meeting. He says he found these buffalo “sitting, not roaming, on a ‘free’ table not too long after I started working at NPR 8 years ago.” P.S. Among Lars’ posts at totalvibration are excellent breakfast pics, complete with an assortment of mugs.

Well, your Tumblr host FINALLY made it to the Mugs of NPR. Revenge represent! —Lars
