Go! Spotify Playlist, October 6: Mad World

“Black Sun” by Death Cab for Cutie: Say what you want about Death Cab and its frontman Ben Gibbard, but old Ben knows how to write a song real good. This one’s off the band’s new album released this year. Somehow a bit of the impetuous angst-ridden tone of 90s grunge finds voice in Gibbard’s music, but it’s understated and more sophisticated.

These sunflowers are all volunteers. None of them sprouted from hand-planted seeds. Overfed finches dropped them as they scattered from our winter bird feeder. Or last year’s varieties, bent over and dragging at the end of summer, left some seeds on the ground, somehow avoiding nibbling by voles.

In recent years Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties have seen more than their share of wildfires across the shrub steppe landscape of the Columbia Plateau. Why is the shrub steppe more vulnerable to fire now than a century ago?
