March 27, 2010
Programmed the Sunday Gospel Set. This set, #42 (amazingly), is mostly urban contemporary, code words for black, current and commercial; fusing R&B, funk, soul and hip-hop elements in a powerful blend. Yolanada Adams in, Kirk Franklin out and a spectrum of testifying in between.
The photograph above is of a mural painted on a utility (traffic light, I think) box in Jamaica Plain. It's a map of the nearby streets, with no names or symbols used. Overlaid are the shifting shadows of bare winter tree branches. To me it's a totally satisfying work of art. See another, maybe even better, view of the mural in the March 19 journal entry below. That image will be on the April 15 Roofscape cover, so you'll also get a sneak peak.
