I'm Sticking With You
Dan & Jill are getting married this weekend. I sure am getting to be an expert, two tuxedos in a month. I wonder if I'll have a new perspective on weddings now, it used to be something out of reach or far off in the distance but now it'll be a close memory. I couldn't be happier for the two of them, it's exciting to see your friends happy. I'm quite certain it will be an elaborate & joyful affair sure to please the greatest of epicureans. I'm sure it will bring up many memories of eating french bread with olive oil off of paper plates, wonderful breakfasts at the finest restaurants in West Michigan, beers served from the greatest bartenders & listening to music from the greatest players the world has ever seen. Cheers Dan & Jill, we can't wait.
Five Favorite Songs of the Day
Romulus-Sufjan Stevens, Greetings from Michigan
Perhaps Sufjan Stevens greatest song, about a neighboring downriver Detroit hot spot. Everything great about Sufjan is present in this song, a gorgeous melody, heartbreaking lyrics & an elaborate arrangement.
Wedding Bells are Breaking Up that Old Gang of Mine-Fred Rich & his Orchestra
Things Have Changed-Bob Dylan, Liverpool 2001
The finest version of one of Bob Dylan's latter day masterpieces. The perfect bad mood song, if you're not in a bad mood when you listen to this one, you'll remember the last time you were. One of the oddities of Bob Dylan's post 2000 shows is on display here, the Oscar he won for the song in 2000 has shown up on stage ever since.
Lost Verses-Sun Kil Moon, April
Love Would Come-Kevin Davis
Happy Thursday, friends, may your wishes all come true...
