Time Is A Very Peculiar Item

Rumble Fish-1983

This post is veering way off topic but one thing leads to another and sometimes you just end up somewhere else. Favorite lyric below "I'm a cold Italian pizza I could use a lemon squeezer". Nicky Hopkins gets MVP for this track. Anytime I try to get someone to play piano on something I always want them to play like Nicky Hopkins!

Far Away Places

Image result for gregory corso's children

When not living in present time squalor he would let his mind drift back to those lazy younger days when he lived in the upstairs room of a limestone Spanish style building. His room led to a 3rd floor patio roof where he would often spend morning to evening smoking hash and watching the sky turn colors. The wisps of clouds so like brushstrokes- at times it seemed like the whole history of painting would ramble through the sky during those long reveries on the rooftop. He liked to leave the door open so he could hear music float gently in from the wireless in his room. The distance traveled would change the tunes in subtle, interesting ways.
