the vacation recap

ratio of absolutely gorgeous beach days to not so much gorgeous beach days: 1 in 9

postcards sent: six (three with a photo of Eva Hesse and three with a Ralph Eugene Meatyard photograph – sorry if you didn’t get one)

things I did on vacation that I don’t usually do on vacation: got a haircut, worked on a jigsaw puzzle (it was a really tough Simpsons puzzle, though), saw Everclear play at The Green Room in Seaside Heights, NJ

things I did on vacation that I usually do on vacation: read and wrote

books read while on vacation: Rednecks & Bluenecks by Chris Willman, Game of Shadows : Barry Bonds, BALCO, and the Steroids Scandal that Rocked Professional Sports, Pixies' Doolittle (33 1/3) by Ben Sisario, The Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique (33 1/3) by Dan LeRoy, The Beatles’ Let It Be (33 1/3) by Steve Matteo (a re-read) and most of the upcoming Chuck Klosterman IV (“most” only because it’s a collection of previously published essays and therefore easy to start and stop)

musicians I wrote about while on vacation: Camera Obscura, Tommy Keene, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys, Rob Zombie and Johnny Cash

pubs you probably missed while I was gone: a short interview with Bouncing Souls drummer Michael McDermott in New Times Broward-Palm Beach (scroll down)
