American deaths

Michael Jackson
Farrah Fawcett
Ed MacMahon
- someone said ' it's like the '70's died '
tv montage of Michael's face / the red Swimsuit poster / Johnny Carson in Ed's arms
Al Sharpton's holding a press conf.

it had already been a strange week,
the ongoing days of unrest in Iran had engaged me for hours at a time following it, then the crackdown.
After almost three cool and rainy weeks , today the sun came back out today to warm everybody up.
But with all these deaths by tonight - Farrah and then Michael in one afternoon - it's an odd feeling , mediated memory formation of popidols, bits of songs, a selection of most famous images collapsed into the moments when you first hear the next news.
Kind of a real time JG Ballard feed ...

outpost 'rehearses' Friday more like we get together and play what we want night.
First time since the Cake Shop gig .
