Caught up with your Cerf interview recently, great one!
Are used to be a guy who’s nuts who would walk around the French quarter in New Orleans and going to the bars and start screaming “why are you serving all these women“ I think that song from Michael Perkins is exactly that guy.
The Fire is melting my Turquoise colored Bakelite kitchen radio ! HOT HOT HOT !
A WAB Glistener had mentioned she lives in my neighborhood and would be in front of her bldg. today giving away rescued and extra plants, so we stopped and talked to her for a good while and walked away with like seven plants! It felt, as you say, David, deliciously exotic to be out in the sunlight, seeing other people, letting the dog claim ownership of some errant lamp posts.
Oh, and she had Michael Shelley playing on her phone, of course!
John from Florham park:
@Handy anyone I know?
David in London:
Handy, John, we have a bookshop chain called Waterstones here, and the lady I chatted to in there said that their policy will be to stay open until the government tells them to close. They staff all had masks and gloves, very reasonable, and it felt like a little oasis of sanity on the edge of lockdown darkness.
I don't remember the 45, but here in the UK I do remember the Penguin dance craze. My Mum and Dad had a house party and they were all doing it at 3 am. A neighbour filmed it but I don't know what happened to the footage. They were doing it to the B side of Joe Loss' "Must Be Madison" Which was nothing like the Madison either but hey.
omg he wrote and sang "One Way" on sesame street??
