Hi All – We took Chris out to Cornwallis Beach on Saturday and sat in the car as it was pissing down. We had to start the windscreen wipers every few minutes so we could see out – the patheticness of the situation was not lost on Chris.
Chris is getting into his iPod & his reading seems to be improving. On Sunday a bunch of us sat around & watched ‘Dracula’ with Chris but I think the general chattiness of the room, and smart-alec interjections, annoyed him – he does take his film watching seriously y’know.
So far I’ve received recordings from Lambchop, Lou Barlow, and The Magnetic Fields & am waiting on tracks from David Kilgour, Will Oldham, The Bats, AC Newman, The Mint Chicks, Martin Phillips, Mountain Goats, Jeff Mangum, Olivia Tremor Control, Guided By Voices, Yo La Tengo, Shane Carter, Jay Clarkson, Bill Callahan, Pumice, Alec Bathgate, Jay Reatard, Sky Green Leopards, Graeme Downs, Superchunk, David Pine, Scott Kannenburg, The Able Tasmans, The Tokey Tones, and Psychatrone Rhonedakk ….. and there are still some people who we’re trying to contact or who we are waiting for confirmation from.
All the beets.
