Today I played...

I honestly don't read a lot at home.  I save that for the hours I spend on the subway every day.

 

My commute is now very short, but I make up for it with airplane reading of course.

When that happens I start reading out loud. Public space. (I did not try that with Henry Miller.)

Ha. I’m with a huge Cure fan now. I still don’t get it.

 

Tuesday she texted me all this stuff Bob Smith has said recently.

 

Who CARES what Bob Smith has said recently?

Scarlatti:  Treize Sonates (Anne Queffélec) (I have undervalued this pianist)

 

Galuppi:  Il Mundo alla Reversa (Pennichi/Dominguez/Fracassini/Serafini/Zanasi/Bettini/Livermore//Fasolis/I Barocchisti/Coro della Radio Svizzera) (it's good this is available, but I can't imagine ever reaching for it in preference to, say, The Marriage of Figaro) (which I actually think stole from it, BTW)

 

Ex Hex:  It's Real (OMG I love this)

 

Mahmoud Turkmani:  Nuqta (very very good)

 

Buffalo Springfield:  Buffalo Springfield Again (stereo) (a classic album from back when white rock was not only viable, but even kind of exciting)

I cannot believe he’s going by “Bob.” He’s such a Robert.

 

He translated the moderate talent into a stadium-sized, global, multi-decade career; if we just had the early singles and they’d broken up, we might remember them fondly. “Boys Don’t Cry” should be a rare single by a long-vanished band.

A band my best friend managed signed to the same label as The Cure, Chris Parry’s Fiction Records, so we saw some of Robert before he was a star, seemed nice enough.
