Monday Miscellanea, 6/14/21

Watching/Listening

My writing “playlist” has been nearly exclusively David Bowie concerts. Thank you, YouTube bootleggers. One of my favorite things about Bowie concerts/performances of the mid-90s onward is his duet of “Under Pressure” with touring/session bassist Gale Ann Dorsey. Dorsey may be one of the coolest people in existence. Not only is she doing justice to Freddy Mercury’s original vocals alongside David-frickin’-Bowie, she’s also playing one of the most iconic bass lines in rock music.

Getting Back to It (or not)

I am not ready for summer. Did I mention we recently got a new AC unit? Man, I am happy about that.

Anyway, back around when I got my second vaccine jab, I mentioned that my parents were on their way to being vaccinated as well. In fact, they were not and have no intention of being vaccinated. It’s been interesting to find out where family members, both close and extended, stand on this issue of public (and personal) health and safety. And, by “interesting,” I mean painful in a way that I can only give 2020 credit for.
