Greetings Sheila, fellow Sophisticates. Looking at a very long night and weeken d--Mom's home aide called out sick today, so there's days' worth of dishes, laundry, and other shit that I have to deal with tonight when I go up there after work. Mom's OK and has food in but still....this is the third Friday in a row that her aide has pulled this shit. Mom really likes her but she is getting less and less reliable, and Mom is afraid to have someone else from teh agency cover due to COVID...

Threemoons, is your mother far away? As far as the risk of Covid, it's now about as low as it's ever going to go. So it's a choice of isolate forever, or choose the best time to catch the current, omicron variant.

If you're vaccinated, the best time to catch it is before the immunization from the vaccine wears off, and then from the infection you'll have the best immunity available. Boosters aren't going to keep working.

Nevertheless: one week.

I love the sound of this Carrie Cleveland record.

I think I have read only The Gone-Away World from Harkaway. I'll keep an eye out for Angelmaker. Hi, Miss G!

And many thanks, Sheila! Always so wonderful to get the weekend started right here.

Stay Booming, all!

HH, I think you will love the tone and semi-tongue in cheek hard-boiledness of Angelmaker. Y'all have a great weekend!

Hi again Sheila B! My favorite SPY MOVIE
is Mother Night, from the awesome Kurt Vonnegut novel.
It's based on A real person, but Kurt Vonnegut changed the character a lot for his story. Thanks again, always love your show!

Holly Golightly! Solid.

Thanks for the fantastic show today, Sheila!!!!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Miss G:

*sigh* as always, just a mo-mo of Sheila B's spinning takes a difficult day's woes away -- still feelin' it, but in a new way. . .💙

I only knew the version of this song she did with The Greenhornes. I think I like that one better though this is great too. Thank you, Sheila, for another lush Friday afternoon of music.

Spy (?) suggestion:

The Jerry Cornelius Quartet by Michael Moorcock >> start with The Final Program
Hard to classify take on 60's counterculture.
If David Bowie had been a spy, yeah?
