Things are definitely getting funky around here, in a good way – I think. Tired times, but happy times.

One of my all-time favorite videos:

Da Funk

and this too:

Art Ensemble of Chicago

(and here is a link to a post I did years ago on my old blog about some of their awesome gig posters)


Fifi Brindacier

A friend tipped me off to this – Pippi Longstocking in English – have you seen these videos before?? I never knew there was a television series. Fifi is my new hero, love her outfit, her morals, and great strength of character (and body!!) also really love the music at the beginning and the illustrations…

Fall, except for today which is weirdly blistering hot, but even the light has changed already, more yellowy orange…trying to get in the cooler groove, it is okay but am a little worried about cold times. Trying to take things day to day. I have a list as long as my arm with things I need to get done, checking things off of it but Oh  sooo s l o w l y…better than not at all I guess but I am getting impatient with myself. We are listening to a lot of Miles Davis around here, Patrick is on a kick, it is good but also makes me miss NYC…not that I had jazzy times there – but you know…

When Shirley Horn insisted, in 1990, that Davis reconsider playing the gentle ballads and modal tunes of his Kind of Blue period, he demurred: “Nah, it hurts my lip.”
