Loved playing this in the shop the past few days. Very positive response. Somebody thought it was Schoenberg. Heh-heh.

Fantasy on the floor and on sale. $2 books going outside.

Brad Dutz setting up.

I know all these tunes by heart. Brad's playing tonight at The Battery 8 pm with Steuart Liebig. Most excellent.

Steuart's playing tonight sans The Mentones but with that guy Brad Dutz. You know him, don't you? 8pmish. Here at the shop while you shop.

Penny's picture. A parting gift but she's the one parting.

Reposting with a better filter. I miss all the Hackings but Rachel and Jane and Daniel I knew the most. Let me tell you about them sometime.

To the guy who left the flowers, I was going to put them in water but Sean left his card and you can pick them up at his place.

The first customer of the day read this to me from Jorge Manrique's Coplas de la muerte de su padre:

Recuerde el alma dormida,
avive el seso y despierte
cómo se pasa la vida,
cómo se viene la muerte
tan callando,
cuán presto se va el placer,
cómo, después de acordado,
da dolor;
cómo, a nuestro parecer,
cualquiera tiempo pasado
fue mejor.

What kind of mood is that going to put me in for the rest of the shift?

Oh, one more.
