The hood (continued.)

Looking south up Rodney. The ducks
are in the lower right corner of the building
that houses Jester's Bar.

In the neighborhood.

Directly across the street
this inexplicable collection of ceramic ducks.

211 North Rodney

This modest
little building is
the new home of
Bedrock Books
& The Mainwaring Archives.

And more again.

Moving on. Traces of stasis.

Bedrock Books has relocated to 211 North Rodney
but other things are happening

paint residues continue to accrue
in the 5 gallon paint trays

into which we dip our 18" rollers

like soundtracks for the eyes

paintings for the ears

The Remains of the Day

Vanishing act is almost complete.

In the beginning.

Which came first?

Bedrock Books move proceeds.

Geopsychologically speaking

perhaps it's OK

to be leaving the underground

Livestock lair

for the brighter confines of the Rodney Street



Maybe the books have a mind of their own

and are migrating


So much music in the world

yet so few ears

So much time on our hands

yet so few years

Prince @ the Super Bowl.

Yes, Prince's halftime show
was, to quote Rolling Stone magazine
the best Super Bowl halftime show of all time.

But what does that mean?

Like saying you've just eaten the greatest
chicken-fried steak in history?

For some reason, Prince referenced "All Along the Watchtower"
during his medley. Perhaps only to suggest that
he is of equal stature in American rock music to J. H.?

Hmmm. Hardly. And then he capped his set with
"Purple Rain." A forgettable ditty that is a major contribution
to popular music in no one's mind except Prince's.


I'm moving a lot of books and boxes of books and boxes of boxes of boxes of books within books.

This is an ad from a 1971 Rolling Stone magazine. I found a stack of old Rolling Stones on a shelf in a closet. The BIG MOVE continues. Meanwhile . . .

Prince is no Hendrix but he is a really good musician and his half-time show was easily the best ever halftime concert.


If Hendrix were alive would he do a Super Bowl halftime show?


Perhaps a duet with Mama Cass.
