A Happening

Athens, Georgia – Hurricane Irma gave my neighborhood, this jurisdiction, a light slap on its’ wrist. There was no electricity for close to a day. I dug deep, successfully securing a working c.d. player.

Featured are sounds by compact disc. This “playlist” – compiled of music and spoken word recordings I frequently listen to while behind the wheel. Sounds for when in darkness and in the light. Hoping for the best to anyone who survived its’ real crushing fury.

Athens, Georgia – A scant few shots from Kindercore Vinyl‘s open house last Sunday afternoon. [Yeah, man…Athens’ has a record pressing plant.] Interspersed are shots of the threads I wore on this day. An outfit heavy with navy blue, denim and earth tone touches.

Live music from a couple of rave-fave local artists. Food truck action, hot ‘n ready, by Manila Express. Free swag [Or, is that redundant?] and cold beer.

A proper christening to new enterprise on wax.

Athens, Georgia – I’m totally cheating here [in relation to #vinyltshirttuesday]. The t-shirt I own. I’ve had it for over thirty years. The vinyl I do not possess just yet. Looking for the right price point and that sucker is mine.

“Late this afternoon, I scored this copy of ‘Cecil Taylor Unit’ for two dollars while thrifting. This title has been on my list forever. It’s in very good condition. (I) almost didn’t hang in there (i.e., keep crate digging) due to the copious amounts of empty covers. Far out, man.”
