    Listened to Ten and Vitalogy yesterday and when you get away from the albums for awhile and then come back you're just floored at how good they are. I think what I appreciate most about PJ from the get go is that they've always put albums out - meaning a solid bunch of songs with a cohesion and flow. You may not love every song and/or album but there is serious thought behind it all. True artistry. The best part about yesterday's listening is how much my son loved Vitalogy, he's made me see just how hard the album rocks. And on a side not, once you step away from "Better Man" for a long time, you realize how great it sounds on wax.

    Listened to Dylan's Time out of Mind and Love & Theft yesterday and it reminded me how much I love his "come back trilogy." Not that anything after Modern Times isn't excellent, pretty everything is but his dip into Americana and mortality in these albums is just amazing. I bought Time Out of Mind when it first came out and it was my Dylan album, and it was good. The lyrics resonated with me 24 years ago and even more so today, there's a poignant reminder of just how deep loss can cut. I'm of the opinion there's nothing better than album, a full set of songs with a common theme - it's a work of art.

    One of my hobbies has been running but the pandemic has really deflated my joy for it. I haven't given it up but I'm getting slower and it's possible age is slowing me down, or just the fatigue over the amount of miles I run a day (I have a little addiction problem when it comes to logging miles)I don't challenge myself to get out of that comfort zone as much as I should. It's hard, especially when I know I can't hit what I used to hit. There's always today to challenge myself.

    Funny thing I've found about vinyl is if you want something you better get it. It's not like the old days of cd if a place was out they'd pop up in a week or so. I snatched Lightning Bolt and Avocado for the simple fact that I realized Backspacer is now impossible to find. I just want all the studio albums (sorry Lost Dogs, I can't afford you) and Backspacer is impossible to find and I remember when it was like 19 dollars everywhere, for a long time.

    Owner/Founder of the great San Francisco book store City Lights passed away. Lawrence Ferlinghetti didn't just promote and publish Ginsberg's "Howl" among other wonder poets of the Beat era but he was also an amazing word smith. Check out this beauty:

    I listened to the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill yesterday and it really is a beautiful album. It's one of those that has gained a lot of traction on best of lists as the years go by and it makes sense. Lots of soul, original vocal work and just beautiful melody.

    Dug back into Prince's Sign O the Times this morning and this is an amazing album. Sure it's a little over indulgent but it all works so beautifully. Prince had a gift, I never got it until this past year but he could play and create like few artists.

    I have to say Prince's song "I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man" is pop bliss - Prince could've pared it down to be a lean 3 minute power pop ballad but instead opted for guitar heavy six minutes of rock beauty. Think of this, Minnesota gave us Bob Dylan and Prince two of hte greatest artists of all time.

    I get how people could have trepidation of the vaccine but I'd like to see the news focus on how many people are getting it and how many want it and what that will do to the country and reopening. That's a lot of positive. We should be focusing on positive affirmation and how well we will be in the months ahead.
