an exercise in priorities. (Never mind for a moment that 30 GB should be more
than enough music for any woman.)
Yesterday’s album load included: Joni
Mitchell’s Clouds and For the Roses (I am still thinking about Mingus); Shawn
Colvin’s A Few Small Repairs; Mitchell Froom’s Dopamine; Stephen Cummings’
Falling Swinger; an old Sarah McLachlan album called Touch, which sounds like a
tribute to Clannad and Kate Bush.
downloaded two songs by the Reindeer Section, to see if the album (Y’all Get
Scared Now) was worth ordering off Amazon. They do not disappoint, yet.
Roach showed me a magazine called Paste ,
subtitled “Signs of Life in Music and Culture.” It rocks, in an Adult Album
Alternative way. I didn’t even know it was a radio format. Any magazine that
features Richard Thompson’s name in huge type directly beneath the masthead is a
magazine worth subscribing to.
