i’m listening to Green Onions by Booker T and the MGs. it is the third track on the 4th side of Quadrophenia Double LP.

yep. i found it in the old record shop in park slope… i also bought Achtung Baby to replace the copy i left in the case of a cd i’d borrowed from the library…i think it was in the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Stadium Arcadium… anyhow, i had to get the hell out of that store because i could have easily spent $100 in no time flat. almost bought Abbey Road…i have most of the Beatles stuff on cd, plus i have the Anthology on video…

didn’t find any old Bowie except for Ziggy and i already have that one.
i did order Heroes on cd…it’ll be in next week.

on the way downtown, i hit the library first to return some items and check out more:
AC/DC – Back in Black (need i say anything?!)
Bright Star: Love Letters and Poems of John Keats to Fanny Brawne
Young Victoria
Grapes of Wrath (2nd time i’m trying to view, it’s rough to watch)
Little Ashes (because i just can’t get enough of Pattinson boy)
Poseidon- let’s see if it lives up to the original with Shelly Winters!
Nanny Diaries – because we all need some damned fluff to occupy some of the ole brain AND, i enjoyed the book

so, kids, visit your local record shop and support them, where else will you hear hardcore music lovers state that if the world is ending, you may as well be listening to a good tune? …de do run run run, de do run run

  1. this is one of the numerous reasons i wanted to move back to the nyc area. for the most part, you can find anything you want or, at least, someone who knows how to find it. record shops and libraries… that’s where it’s at for me and fortunately, nyc has some good ones.

  2. And where exactly am I supposed to find a local record shop? Every single one I was aware of within an hour’s drive of me was defunctified years ago. 🙁
