Catching Autumn

Went to the city today to catch the tail of autumn. Didn't have the energy to go to Central Park. Hung out around East Village.

And many thanks to Matt Potter.                            

Synopsis of a Movie from 1968

In bed, they never take off their masks,
careful not to leave fingerprints
over each other's body parts.
They are two jewel thieves
pulling off the heist of the other,
red ruby lodged in the belly button,
diamonds stashed in the throat,
making them speechless from heights,
the fear of falling through stained glass.
When the police arrive at their villa,
one thief will swallow the other,
will sacrifice no clarity, only glittering eyes
.

Revisiting Spirit's The Family That Plays Together


It's no secret that I love music of the 60s-70s. Although I do have a soft spot for Punk and Grunge that was to follow. I've been revisiting The Family That Plays Together by Spirit. It received a lot of airplay in the day (Scot Muni played it often). It's a very textured album, at times quiet and melodic with beautiful harmonies. Okay, it might not have the gloss and complex themes of what many consider their best album--The Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus--but really, it's worth a listen. This album still holds up to the test of time, believe me.
