‘Be My Baby.’

I’m not really thrilled that YouTube assumed that I would like this. More accurately: I’m not really thrilled that it was so right about it.

‘Walk on the Wild Side.’

Whenever I hear this it’s an August night in my late teens. I’m listening on a clunky radio that supposedly could get shortwave stations and emergency channels, but I could never get them to work. But this song always came in on the FM radio, sweet and clean and perfectly clear.

Oh, that kid.

Stary Olsa live-streamed a concert today.

I saw this band live a few years ago: Stary Olsa plays early music (they’re from Belarus), and they put on a good show generally. The video below is the recording of their live stream. They’re also, shockingly, on Bandcamp — and they wouldn’t mind at all if you bought some of their music. It ain’t a great time to be an artist who didn’t make an advantageous marriage, folks. Just saying.

‘Poisoning Pigeons in the Park.’

Spring is here. Hard to believe, huh? I was shocked when I went outside today and there wasn’t a temperature differential.
