January 9, 2008

One of the reasons why I’m glad I have this blog is because I find out things I wouldn’t if I didn’t have this blog.

Just looked at my messages and I got one from, of all people, Nelson Slater–whose album Wild Angel I once discussed in a long-ago Lou Reed interview here. Don’t think Nelson liked its cover, but I’m happy to show it whenever I can. Nelson is making music today and you can find out more by checking out his MySpace page here. Please do.

Secondly, I got this message:

Dear Dave DiMartino

Your fond reference to Fête Foraine by the Apartments came to me through Google. And so did this, which seems to be destiny.

Anyway, here it is, shot Dec. 20th in Sydney:

I think she read this.

Anyway, thank you Sophie, wherever you are. You made my week.
