A Happening

Athens, Georgia – Black. White. Color schemes. Go with the flow. Today selected vinyl for listening. One to rock me. One to groove to. One to melt into.

Bad Company’s debut album was chosen with fond memories of when I was a heavy listener of WFMU’s The Best Show. It’s great radio if you’ve never heard it and the album is straight up 70s beer drinking hard rock. Yoko Ono [like Zappa] is an artist which I’m finally able to listen to. I knew “Walking On Thin Ice”. I was perfectly fine with this [because it’s a phenomenal song] but now I need more. The full picture. I love Fly. Last but not least, Black Ivory’s Hanging Heavy. Great tracks, solid album. Bought it for “Mainline”, their 1977 underground Disco hit. Sampled by some [i.e., Deee-Lite’s “Power of Love”]. A dance until you are pouring in sweat production – if ever. Henceforth, my handfan. Crack + pop.

Athens, Georgia – Sitting here listening to an old favorite [The Love Machine soundtrack] and a new favorite [The Ike and Tina l.p.]. The old favorite is a Cool Whip dream. Warwick is slinging her velvety vocals like she’s a bartender flawlessly whipping up cocktails. The instrumental tracks are equally as fantastic. I don’t do drugs but I can only imagine this is what poppingĀ Secanol sounded like.

“Sentimental feelings. Feeling sentimental. That night (roughly nine years ago) Tim and Eric hurled frozen slices of Papa John’s pizza on an unsuspecting audience. I had never laughed so hard in my life. ” – L.T. Underwood

“While clearing out images on my camera, I came across this set taken right before I attended a Fourth of July pool party last year. The dress’s original owner [my mother] is probably looking for it as I document this.”
