Hello subscribers! Thank you for subscribing to this emaily newsletter update dealy bob, I appreciate it!
The snapshot of my life right now is my mid-back is killing me. I suspect it has to do with my lack of core strength. My son is two weeks into in-person school at Chicago Public Schools and every day I expect to get some sort of note home telling us that they will be returning to remote school. The endless unstable gauzy fabric of pandemic living. Also we are at the sweet spot for cicadas, crickets, and katydids. Also, also - I am in constant anxiety and anger about global warming and environmental breakdown.
I have two things to share with you:
The second most recent episode of my radio show is now up on mixcloud so you can listen to it at your leisure.
This year I was a last-minute substitute in a friend's mix-tape club. Given my general loathing of the cassette format it took me a while to track down a tape player so that I could participate. Shout out to my friend Adele Nicholas for letting me borrow one of hers. I'm making it available for you to say thanks for subscribing! If you're interested, you can listen to it here: Side A and Side B.
We Do This Til We Free Us - Mariame Kaba
I recently finished reading Mariame Kaba's collection of writings/interviews about abolishing police and prisons. I've been reading her words for a few years now and it's fabulous to have it all collected in one spot.
Ex Voto - Djunah
Do you like rock music made with extra helpings of heavy and drama? Yes!
Corto Maltese - Hugo Pratt
I've been a huge lover of Hugo Pratt's artwork since forever and I finally got through reading the reissues of all of the Corto Maltese books with new translations etc. They are so fun! For fans of esoteric, occasionally metaphysical, sailor action.
