My take from the library this weekend:
A Tragic Honesty: The Life and Work of Richard Yates
Aldous Huxley Recollected
The Scientist, a Novel Autobiography by John Lilly
Jimi Hendrix: Blues
Sonic Youth: Murray Street
The Pixies: Doolittle
Thelonious Monk: Live at the Five Spot w/ John Coltrane
Air: 10,000 HZ Legend
And for my wife, who’s going through a PKD phase:
Philip K. Dick: Eye in the Sky, The Man Who Japed, Clans of the Alphane Moon.
Libraries are some of the best places on earth. Sometimes I think they’re too good to be true and they’ll outlaw them. All that stuff for free. I haven’t been wanting to read fiction so I’m setting out to read some auto/biographies.
The reason I got the Pixies CD was because one of my sacrifices when moving to Wilmington, NC was losing all of my LP records. The couple who were subletting our apartment drove down from NYC with all our stuff one weekend--an angel-like move which restored my faith in humankind. I told the guy to keep the records as payment. I don’t know how much he got for them. There were some very good records in there. I used to be an LP snob. Now I really don’t care. LPs are a pain and less portable.
My wife rules for going through a Philip K. Dick phase.
