Somehow I’ve seen two 80s era David Lynch movies in the last week, with the same companion. First a showing of “Dune” at the Turf Club (fun to watch among die-hard and drunken fans). Then “Blue Velvet” at The Loring Theater for David Lynch Night (I “won” half a cherry pie). We may need to move on to some of his more recent work like “Lost Highway” or “Mullholland Drive.” Come to think of it, I never did get around to seeing “Inland Empire.”
Five things that aren’t simply good, they are great:
- Rob Tyner kicking out the jams on auto harp
- Just found out an Australian band I really enjoy, Kitchen’s Floor, will be touring the states and stopping in Minneapolis next month. Yes!
- I’m not one to participate in marathons or races and whatnot. But I feel compelled to join my co-workers for The Big Gay Race.
Though I’ll be walking more than jogging, thank you very much.
- Yesterday I took my son to the beach and finally gave my full attention to “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” And raced right though it. I love this book! And not *just* because of all the creepy old found photos populating its pages. Though that is pretty fantastic too.
- I’m about to read some non-fiction that has come highly recommended. I am extremely intrigued by Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea
Parenting and homeownership have something in common - other than the figure-it-out-as-you-go method I’ve been employing for both since 1999. Both are very task-oriented. Manage to accomplish one item on the endless To Do list and three more crop up. But today I’m feeling pretty good. Like I’m on top of things. Though I shouldn’t jinx myself. Life always has a way of throwing pocket sand in my face.
