(Just checking to see if anyone is paying attention now that life is returning to some semblance of normalcy in the new Austin digs…)
Music-related quick hits:
– While driving on a backroad between Wichitard Falls and Jacksboro last Tuesday, I saw an odd road sign: “Watch for wildLife on Road Next 15 Miles”. Now, being in Texas, I am accustomed to seeing “Deer Crossing”, “Watch for Cattle on Road”, or even “Truck Crossing” signs, but never one as vague as the above mentioned sign. And, sure enough, a few miles down the road David Byrne crossed right in front of me doing the ‘Once in a Lifetime’ forearm chop.
– Odd music moment: A forty-something Arab store clerk quoting Led Zeppelin to me and doing so on purpose.
– I took a piss in LaGrange last Friday. (Actually, I should have said “wizz” because of the double z’s.)
– On a serious note, my current favorite song is by Kelly Willis: Nobody Wants To Go To The Moon Anymore.
Until next time…
