I was tempted to title this post, “I speed-read G.K. Chesterton’s Autobiography so that you don’t have to.” What a vexing book. Got a few sound-bites from it, though, which should hopefully launch the next — proper — post.
In the meantime, some distractions:
Ted Gioia has a list of “25 Recent Jazz Albums You Should Listen To” over here. I’m giving #17 multiple spins this weekend, as it has a sweet and gentle vibe. Good for solo attention and meditation, and perfectly kitted-up for company, too. (I have it on good authority that #s 3, 6, 9, 10 & 15 are also keepers.)
I want to be Gabriel Garcia Marquez when I grow up.
And finally: Wow, it’s getting HOT in here! Is it the erotica — or is it the Christian Rock?
Alright: time to put the lamb in the oven.
