The good news is that The Mekons* sold out their London show tonight. The bad news is that they sold out before I remembered to get tickets…
(*Well, it’s only about 20% of the Mekons, but any fraction is good.)
Introduced my kids to Star Trek via “The Trouble With Tribbles”.
(Having turned out to be a professional astrophysicist, I can’t overstate how important the original series of Trek was to me growing up in the 70s.)
It is the summer solstice so time for my annual reminiscence of seeing Sun Ra and Don Cherry celebrate the rising sun from Battery Park in Manhattan with @email@example.com in 1989.
This year, my partner decided to celebrate with a 4:45am swim in the Thames which is even more Druidic.
Devastated to hear of the death of Nick Kaiser: collaborator, friend, mentor. He helped bring me to CITA in 1994 and we worked on two of my favourite papers, minor works in his influential oeuvre. Simultaneously one of the smartest & nicest people I’ve had the privilege to work with. RIP.
Is anyone else seeing a blank iOS @NYTimes widget like this? (It’s been this way about a week.) Even a handful of responses that it is still working for you would be useful…
Update: I’ve had a response from “NY Times Customer Care”:
We have reported this issue to our developers. They are working on a fix for this and we hope to get a fix out soon. Please keep an eye out for an update.
Update 2: … and now seems to be fixed as of this evening’s update…
Thanks to Lloyd/Bean (Robert/Janet) for their beautiful/chaotic set @BushHallMusic tonight.
I made scones for a picnic yesterday, cut into triangles from the dough before baking. I was told by my (English, otherwise complimentary) friends that they obviously couldn’t be scones because they weren’t round.
