Today is day two of May is Bike Month, and I logged my usual 2 km (okay, 1.28 miles for the imperialist bike event) trip to work. Twice on this short trip I was almost creamed by careless drivers. I credit my intuition, adhearance to traffic laws, and two pieces of inexpensive equipment for my safe arrival to work.
In early February of this year, I got a flu shot in my right shoulder. The medical assistant who stuck me said, “oh, your muscle didn’t like that” and warned me that it would likely be sore for a few days.
Fast-forward nearly two months later and I still can’t raise my right arm without significant pain. There are days when it hurts less than others, but the performance isn’t even close to where it used to be.
In the late 80s and early 90s I recorded “Live in Studio A” on KDVS almost every week. One of my favorite recordings was of Pavement. I listend to it all the time. It was extremely noisy. So much so that when I later heard Slanted and Enchanted, I was surprised it was the same band. The Pavement I remembered was sloppy and noisy. No. Really sloppy and noisy.
