remains of the day(s)

1.4.2011. The spirit lives at the Spirit of ‘77. It’s unclear whether it is 1877 or 1977. MLK Boulevard, Portland, Oregon.

1.5.2011 No photo. This is what I get for letting my friend use their camera. “I’ll send it to you when I get back!” 

  • A very sweet article from the NYT about independence, adulthood and dating in the autism world. Introduced me to the term “mindblind.”
  • An amazing piece of arts journalism from the San Francisco Classical Voice from Mark MacNamara about the San Francisco Girls Chorus. I might have more to say on this later, but it really highlights the difference between finding a musical director for a professional institution and something like a children’s chorus.
  • Did you like yesterday’s piece on Nina Simone? A resource I found helpful was this Nina Simone database/discography lovingly put together by a fan. As digital collections, box sets, and low-budget reissues become more common, these kind of resources will become even more valuable.
  • Putting in a little plug for my Tumblr, for those of you that are into that sort of thing.
