May 6, 2010
A sultry day, clouding with a fitful southwest wind promising afternoon thunderstorms. Got the first boxes for moving at the end of the month to the other side of Dorchester, Fields Corner.
Working on the May 1 magazine cover, the third part of N-E-W-S @ Roofscape, featuring Roofscape Journal - which you're now reading. Journal, our blog hosted by Google, is the most dynamic part of the magazine and one of the most fun to produce. It is also by far the easiest since it has a predetermined, if limited, structure which takes care of all the housekeeping chores for you unlike the magazine which is created by hand from scratch and has a far more complicated structure. Journal changes at least once a day, there is always a daily entry featuring an interesting new photograph, usually accompanied by the story and thoughts of our day. I'm trying to figure out how to give it a more prominent place in the magazine.
Programmed the first Noontime Dance Workout.
Is Keith Richards the world's greatest musician? The question is stupid, of course, like all other talk of the best, greatest, biggest and baddest. On the other hand, however, this is Keith, a sort of singularity at the event horizon of a black hole, black as night. And he is getting on, now amazingly at age 67, so this is well worth asking. Before the famous death head ring kicks in and calls him home.
