MAKING: bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunch! an egg, a tomato, mixed greens and these AMAZING potato chips from trader joe’s that have three different kinds of potatoes involved, all delicious. oh. god. yes. lazy man’s home fries. weekends, i prefer the weekends.
LISTENING: mimi & richard farina, celebrations for a grey day
i have long been impressed with the fact that richard gave mimi first billing. i bought this gem of a record out in western massachusetts a couple years ago on a whim, knowing absolutely nothing about it other than the fact that i liked the artwork (the back is better than the front) and that it was old and on vanguard and thus probably fine. IT’S BETTER THAN FINE.
mimi is joan baez’s little sister for crying out loud and she shares the reed-thin, high-pitched crystal clear vocals, but somehow sounds less preachy. like you could shoot the shit with mimi, drink a beer maybe. joan would just judge you and want you to protest more and live in quiet solitude when you’re not protesting. TEAM MIMI. bitch married this amazing dude (a writer/pal of bob dylan) at seventeen, went and lived in a cabin in carmel with him and some dulcimers, put this album out by eighteen, lived a generally amazing life for a few years and then had her 29 year-old husband die in a motorcycle accident on her 21st goddamn birthday.
COME ON, WORLD.
