  • Made soup again, the kale was a bit difficult to strip off the stems but i did it anyway bc it’s good to do things within reason. Part of cooking is prep, and it’s the work

Hold It Right There

  • The Amazon page holder device– I can read again. It’s called “Bookmark/Weight-Page Holder-Holds Books Open and in Place-Clear-by Superior Essentials” and it was Amazons choice. Using it is easy and I can read much easier without having to grapple with the book.
  • Currently, I’m reading The Year’s Best Sports Writing 2021 and Saxophone Colossus, Aidan Levy’s new Sonny Rollins biography and the page holder is doing exactly what they said it would- a useful product.

Seeing hardcore punk-noise veterans Lightning Bolt play at New Parish in Oakland for my first show since the start of the pandemic.

Welcome to What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast Season Six, Episode 13, “Lightning Bolt”

In this episode I got out of my house and saw a Lightning Bolt show, which was a big success. I used a ride service, ate a pre-show dinner, and hustled to the club, where they gave me a seat right next to the band.

  • Shoutouts: to the librarian who roped me into the compulsory ideas & cultural indoctrination book club!
  • I will survive my symbolic journey to Siberia as I read this book about prehistory somehow, the same book as everyone else

  • Remember Hare Krishna’s at the airport? I guess it’s sad that the kids won’t have that

I went to the show

  • It was around $30 round trip
  • I went to Low Bar , where I had a burger and a drink before the show
  • Brian Chippendale is hardcore drummer, as opposed to a jazz drummer
  • Lightning Bolt’s change of pace is between-song banter
  • Brian Chippendale recorded a station ID for KFJC after
  • The old ranting guy was drunk and ranting outside the club, he stood by the fire hydrant. I looked at him and realized we were the same age
  • Blue Hills by Michael Hurley was on as I put this together, it’s a new repress from Mississippi Records. he warbles a lot and the recording has many homespun touches.. you could see it as a bum trip, but I encourage thinking about with nostalgia. It’s very warm that way.

In The Habit

We’re nearing the end of four seasons on the podcast. Like I said last time, I’m thinking of changing or stopping it. For now, I’m still in the habit.

I recorded an interview with the activist Ligia Andrade Zuniga that I hope to air on KFJC.

Reflecting on the mental health epidemic that accompanies the coronavirus epidemic, the podcast takes an unexpected turn.

It comes back on track at the end, courtesy of the words of Marc Maron.
