February 23, 2010
Programmed a late night (really late night, 2-3 AM) set of party music. Started with Miley and ended with Orchestra Morphine, two tremendously fun cuts, equally good.
Wrote Bongo in Squaresville . 2, the first BIS with a story about the Boston jazz scene. The show, devoted to jazz in Boston, will air on Radio Roofscape Wednesdays at 9:00 PM EST.
Working on the cover, the 2/15 one. Picking up where we left off after the scary computer shutdown due to a power company surge (N-Star service here is third worldly). Finally recovered, to great relief, but we lost several day while down when the new edition was supposed to be in production 'til we figured things out. With neither divine intervention nor tech sports. Although we'd left all options open.
Replied to emails from Tony, the drummer and Pete, my brother. Keeping my social standing solvent. Invited PB and family for a visit.
Went out for lunch, a seafood sub at the Upham's House of Pizza. That's usually safe being, well I don't know what, but some nutrionally neutral unobnoxious substance. Photographed the growing sidewalk shrine in front of Hermnos Unidos - cards, pillows, flickering candles, teddy bears, dolls, crucifixes. The usual Dot (Drugchester) murder memorial, but barely begun judging by the others I've photograpged. Where did this curious custom come from? And how quickly can it return from whence it came?
