Saturday and we sleep late, usually we're up by
eight, a swim it calls, a swim awaits,
no work to do today... strange how you would stray, and
such odd things.
This is what the city brings...
On the way to see Will Oldham sing, I saw Jordan...
Superwolf were playing 5 shows today. The first one was in
Williamsburg. Unfortunately the L
train was down and I had to take a taxi there. Then when I got to
the show, the crowd was way
too big. These are people just listening in through the
door. I was going to go to all the shows
and shoot photographs... Matt Sweeney had given me his approval but
there was no room in
the Palace Car. With the next show in Harlem and the train broken
I threw in the towel...
plus I am such a fan of Will Oldham that
being around him really scares me.
I contacted the flight deck from this very park and caught the J train
to a friend's.
My spin-out was so intense that I saw the world in Wizard Of Oz-like
spinning flying house
detail, complete with witch on bicycle.
Evening calls and old folks fall, the phone
is ringing down
I told my friends not to call, that you were getting well
You still refuse to tell where you'd been out so long, coming
home at dawn...
Once the flight deck was swerved and all systems mildly
under control again I went to Other
Music to see the last show of the evening. The line was around
the block but both Mahssa and
Scott separately called me so I could circumvent any line
barrakka. Thank you so much!
My obsession with Will Oldham is well known to my friends... he's my
there's J.Lee and Aric
So Will Oldham sang and I watched in awe and with reverence... they
songs from the new
Superwolf record as well as "I Am A Cinematographer" "I See A Darkness"
"Ohio River Boat
Song" and one of my favorite songs of all time and a total obscurity
"Little Boy Blue II"
I couldn't be happier... I left in a rush with a rush.
