A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

We are in Cape St. Claire and we are about a mile away from the community strip shopping center with a grocery store, small hardware store, a couple restaurants and a Rita's, so we just walk over there and get what we need.

@sphere I love where we are, just the house is a pain in the a$$. 1955 beach cottage that hasn't been updated in forever. Very walkable -- we can walk back streets to get to the market so we don't have to put up with traffic. And very dog-friendly. You can't go more than a couple blocks without encountering someone walking the dog. Not a lot of diversity though. I love going to those ethnic markets like you have, as well as different types of restaurants. Its seafood heavy around here, Nearest Ethiopian is either Burtonsville or Ellicott City, both about 45 minutes away.

@Granny Spicy - I'm a firm believer in trends and patterns in society. Also, you wrote yesterday you started reading Octavia Butler. Check out Parable of the Sower then the sequel Parable of the Talents. There are parts of Parable of the Talents which will make your jaw drop due to similarities with today's American society.

Hope Sandoval followed by Lee Fields - doesn't get better than that.

I really dug Xenogenesis. The appeal of Octavia Butler's story telling for me is that she creates worlds that challenges perceptions of existence and possibilities beyond the familiar.

@RRNov63 I agree.

if your memory fails you, the velvet underground is almost always a good fallback!

What a nice beat that "It Rains Love" has.. It made me decide that last nights storm has past and I feel good.

Know Lonnie Holley from *right here*. I says: Lotsa Avant Artistes - but how many Inspire you w/ Affirmation - even if they astound you w/ Technique or Talent - as he does...
I do think of the Velvet's third album as the root of DarkFolkRawk - like Mazzy & Cowboys...

Cowboy Junkies!
My brother went to see them the other night and a few songs in they had to evacuate due to fire! No refunds!!!

...like Lennon saying he 1st met Yoko - & he climbed a ladder & was the word - 'YES'. The 1st positive thing he'd found in the Underground in some time...& they were off to the races together...

Bonjour Trouble! Had to give you a big THANK YOU as my FMU fundraiser prize from your show arrived in the mail! Gorgeous 3 cd set of Nina Simone. Thankyouthankyouthankyou!
Also, bit of trivia, was listening to NPR interview with Elton John and he said one of his influences was Blossom Dearie. No joke! Thought you would appreciate that.
Will be listening on the Archives per usual.

I first encountered Blossom Dearie on the Pete & Dud show "Not Only But Also". They introduced her as "the Blossomist Dearie in the Land". Fab!
