o There has been no summer. Extreme schizoid weather. Makes for
general unease, planning your day. Clothing, where to go, what to do.
Lots of rain, wind, changeableness. And the cars keep on driving by
my window. Anyway, I am going for bike rides about 3 times per week
because I am spending too much time behind the screen. And in these
rides I go whichever way I go. N. always asks, 'where are you going?'
I always respond: 'I don't know.' The bike is ouja board piece and I
just go. And in these turbulent windy conditions that seem to toy
with plans, expectations and sunny weather - you expect that when you
have a strong head wind going south, you will be spared when you head
west and rewarded with a tail wind when you go in your circle headed
north and east and eventually home. Anyway, what I've noticed lately
is that whichever direction I head I am always going against the
wind. It has an existential [Sisyphus] element and it makes you
wonder about the psychic nature of things like wind.
o I am not terribly in the mood for writing up this playlist because
earlier this first week in September I received the tragic news that
dear friend Lydia Tomkiw died in her home in Arizona. Lydia was
one-half of the indie power poetry duo Algebra Suicide, think of it
as Lydia Lunch with a smile, Patti smith and Lenny Kaye from the
Midwest. Their big indie hit was "True Romance at the World's Fair"
and all of their vinyl and CDs include the lucid, provocative and
beautiful poetry of Lydia. I will devote next week's program [10
Sept] to her memory. I reviewed her last CD in ABR and also wrote a
lengthy profile of her for Fringecore which was later reprinted by
Trouser Press. Check out my new website
