“What are you staring at?”
“What are *you* staring at?”
“You stared first.”
“No, you stared at me.”

abandoned object: The Book of The Courtiers – Castiglione
“Perhaps the most representative book of the Renaissance, it is a compendium of manners and ideals written by one who himself came near to the Renaissance ideals of the perfect courtier and the complete man.” pic.twitter.com/H3P0U5CbLV

“I have ascended the Stump Throne of the Longest Meadow, in the white squall, as foretold by the Oracle of BooBoo. The Kingdom of Prospect is now mine!”

A fav song took on new resonance in late May when I escaped NYC for a few days, for the first time since December 2019. Performed in Bridgehampton NY, interspersed w/ footage from the heaviest part of NYC’s (1st?) lockdown from March to May.
Original Version on Sunrise Highway (2015)
I set out walking, just to find a friend,
Make a human connection in a world of pretend,
To share faith in the future, in the face of decay,
‘Cos when you can’t escape the night, every dawn is the end of days.…

Sound check on Limelight app. Unreleased track “Time Zero” surrounded w/ some loose texture and tone. Sometimes ideas that disappear for a a few years all of a sudden calculate their worth in retrospect. “Write it forward,” is a mode I know well.
Things got strange
Take us back, take us back
Rewind the line
To when we knew love
for the first time!…
Thanks to everyone who tuned in to last night’s show, and to @limelightmusic.live for making it happen. Going live again today at 3:00(GMT-4), for some easy breezy sunday afternoon pleasure. A residency in your own residence is just so now. :^D

Stationary Chevy update: No longer still.
After 33 months in the same spot on our block, gone baby gone. We got DUB’s story, tho, from the owner, an FDNY EMT on a mission to recreate Alonzo Harris’s 1979 Monte Carlo in Training Day.
