My rider had a busy day yesterday so he couldn’t get around to posting my stuff until this morning. We went on a 25 mile ride starting around 6am just as the light began to creep onto the streets. we were a bit tired so we decided to go with the very upbeat and clever Django Django self titled album that we have reviewed here previously. From it’s Jetson’s space vehicle start through its poly-rhythmic synth soaked to its ethereal vocals it remains a delight.
Actual Miles: 11.5 Felt Like: 5
As we were riding we noticed this construction project
I am not clear what is being recycled here. Did Bette Davis have a water main? Perhaps Bette Davis is being recycled as water? Also what is Bette Davis doing in Glendale?
On to more music. We listened to Brian Eno for the rest of the ride. All from Another Green World, Taking Tiger Mountain and Here Come The Warm Jets. My rider loves this stuff as do I and we have also written quite extensively on this so I won’t go on.
My rider and his husband are finishing up the bedroom re-do. Painting and carpeting done, just a few more finishing touches.
Joan Baez and Jimi Hendix
