as I get ready to leave New York again
ten days in Hawaii to get the stuff i left there
use the other half of that ticket
then fly back into SF with Leo to spend a day there
then two days up at the Hermitage
to get some stuff from there
that's pretty much the last "stuff" i'm re-collecting for my house...
and my house is coming together
though my computer has been failing
- anyone want to donate to my "new computer fund"? - -
even there, things are coming together
i've almost got all of my music onto one hard drive (about 400GB right now)
so i'm starting to make mixes for Jorge
and hearing songs i've not heard in ages...
anyone remember Marion?
i listened to their album "This World and Body" today for the first time since i was... 15? 16? maybe 17...
'95 (the kids are alright)
some of the old hits i enjoyed hearing again
but my favourite surprise was this one:
Marion -- My Children (mp3)
i love his singing style
though it all seems a bit silly now
i remember thinking this song (and many of their others) were so great
because at that point in my life
i didn't believe anyone in the world actually loved eachother
"Love" was just some sorry euphemism for the shame, boredom and loneliness that kept people together
i'm so glad to have grown out of that
it's still a fun song
.. i hope to post more music here as time goes on
but if any of you are in on a saturday night...
