Good morning, whoever-reads-this. It's Friday. Doesn't mean a whole lot to me anymore, but I know most of the world(or at least most of the country!)is rejoicing.
Me and Mike, ve vork in mine,
Holy shit, ve haf gut time.
Vonce a veek ve get our pay,
Holy shit, no vork next day!
That's from a Kurt Vonnegut book, don't remember which one. I read all of his stuff up to Breakfast of Champions, where he kills off Kilgore Trout. Trout was a monumentally unsuccessful writer of science-fiction, whose works were published by King, a company that made pornographic novels. There was one in which Trout was making a big point about the Universe,and the accompanying illustration was of a black man in a sombrero getting a blowjob.
Or so I remember first thing in the morning. In bed at 1:04, up just after 9. I think I woke up once in the night, only to return to slumber. A dream-filled sleep, all of which quickly evaporated in the morning air- but as always, leaving that sort of 'astral aftertaste'..
No music news to speak of. Had the monthly Nietzschian Optimist Club yesterday at Joe Rogers. NIce place, friendly staff, good eats. We forgot to talk about Nietzsche, but there's always next time. Almost always a good conversation though, whatever we choose to discuss.
Except for the luncheon, yesterday was pretty much a day of sloth. Let's see what we can come up with today. Hopefully some more music. I did post a few things on YouTube just the other day. And I've got a blog I'm still working on in my head, but should post sooner or later.
As ever, thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. TGIF if it applies. More later.
