Shadows and Fog
Expectations get dragged into the Met and the Kennedy Center too, but the beer's not so good there. Hence all the uptight people. While I'm sure a lot of important spiritual work gets done in those alabaster edifices, it's probably all an accident. No one believes they might get saved at the Met. Not anymore. Now it's all queens who believe they're Marie Antoinette, shrieking at the poor soprano who slurs the high note, "LET HER EAT CAKE." Meanwhile, the kids are fingering their whetstones.
But people the world over are getting saved in bars. You think I'm kidding? Why do you think Saturday comes before Sunday? Because all the important fact-finding missions take place in bars on Saturday night. Then Sunday morning the business gets done.
We shan't discuss Monday through Friday. Shadows and fog.
Please welcome the Gena Rowlands Band's first full-length release into this cruel world: "La Merde et Les Etoiles" will be available in stores and from iTunes on JANUARY 25, 2005. (Though rumor tells of rogue copies available... now?)
Please tell your friends. We'd like to meet them too.
