  1. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I am on a hybrid remote/in-office schedule. About 15 co-workers in my building have had COVID recently, probably Omicron, but I don't know for sure. Management keep silent regarding our working remotely. Many of us shifted primarily to remote work because of this. I am going in only when I need to. There is no one there anyway.
  2. Everyone look what I got comin’!!!!!!!

    We have a string of porch lights with Edison bulbs. They have a very retro-futurist look!

    BTW, Sparks did a series of shows in which the opening set was an album in its entirety. They had to learn their entire back catalog so they could play a different album every night!

    I'm not going period. I hate live shows. I'm all about experiencing music at home in mid-century moderne splendor, paired with an appropriate cocktail.

    At TTK's pad, she ain't. If it were me, I would not hesitate for a second to choose Sparks over Patti Smith. That's what makes horse racing.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Paul Horn/Lalo Schifrin - Jazz Suite on the Mass Texts (RCA, mono) In January and February, I love listening to religious jazz rock concept albums of the 1960s and 70s.

    I always assumed they were British, and I had no idea they had continued working all these decades.

    Watched the Sparks doc last night. Unbelievable.
  11. The Seeburg 1000 - Incredible 1961 Record Player for Industrial Settings

    And many A-list composers and arrangers did library music between assignments. Ennio Morricone, for example.

  13. Ronnie Spector 1943-2021

    When I lived in Beantown, they used to do free summer outdoor concerts at Government Center, which was Scollay Square before the sad destruction of the West End. I worked in one of the buildings that was part of the West End Urban Renewal project, the State Services building. This imposing brutalist structure was designed by Paul Rudolph, who is better known for his Sarasota mid-century modern homes. While I have mixed feelings about brutalism, the destruction of the West End impedes my ability to assess the building purely on aesthetic terms. I once described it as a fascist headquarters as if designed by M.C. Escher. At any rate, I was finishing my shift, and just as I stepped onto Staniford Street, I heard: Boom ba-boom POP Boom ba-boom POP. As I walked up the hill on Staniford Street, I listened. I then heard Ronnie Spector: "The night we met I knew I needed you so..." She was performing that day. I continued on Staniford, and made a left on Cambridge, walking toward Government Center. Ronnie kept singing. The song ended as I walked through the turnstile to take the Green Line. My walk was perfectly timed with "Be My Baby;" it accompanied me the whole way.
