Reading, writing, listening, and browsing

Just a quick update on what I’ve been stuffing my head with lately, and one item that has emerged from same.

Assembling California, by John McPhee. I want to be him when I grow up.

I just turned in the liner notes for Let It Rock, a 2-CD live release of the Jerry Garcia Band w/ Nicky Hopkins on piano, recorded at the Keystone Berkeley November 17-18, 1975. This was a short-lived and troubled edition of the JGB, but when Hopkins had it together they made amazing music. Jeffrey Norman did a spectacular job mixing Betty Cantor’s multitracks. Release date is November 10.

A visit to Wasabimon sent me to Summertomato. Both are excellent food-related blogs. Start with 10 Reasons to Never Eat Free Food and then just start following links. Rita and I have learned a lot in just a couple of hours of poking around.
