  • Fri, 03:21: It's Jon Polito's Johnny Caspar that carries /Miller's Crossing/. The whole thing would collapse of existential angst without Caspar's ethic

3:05pm: Move update.
So I have moved about a quarter to a third of my books to the new place so far this weekend, and will be working on that some more today. I just reserved a U-Haul van for Tuesday, March 29 to move the sofa, large bookcases, etc.

5:07am: My mom was a champ at keeping up with contemporary popular music. I suck at it by comparison. I started listening to the Pixies after they broke up, White Stripes, likewise. You can guess what years I started listening to Morphine, Nirvana, and Nine Inch Nails. But never have I felt so late to the party as now.

I even lived in Minneapolis 1986-1990, but my fave bands back then were Trip Shakespeare and Boiled in Lead. And I am not so idiotic as to have avoided learning of the music of Prince. And I had heard a couple Husker Du songs.

Grant Hart's song "Don't Want to Know if you are Lonely", off Candy Apple Grey. Just really listened to it well while paying attention for the first time. If we meet some place where you are the DJ this year, just play Husker Du for me. I think I will be okay with that.
