Which “One”? · At the be­gin­ning of the week now end­ing was Com­mu­ni­ty One, an open­ing act or a curtain-raiser or a pre­lude or what­ev­er for Ja­va One. I was on stage twice, once in the open­ing, and man­aged to vis­it (I think) all of the track­s. I was one of three thou­sand or so peo­ple there. It’s tak­en me a few days to fig­ure out what I think about it ...
Catchy Tune · The boy had a few morn­ing min­utes free be­fore we had to leave for school and so “Daddy, can I lis­ten to your iPod?” I told him to go ahead, and then when we were head­ing out the door he was singing; he can car­ry a tune well and I knew it but couldn’t make out the song. I asked him to sing a lit­tle loud­er: Perverts in the sun... perv­ing ev­ery­one... Oop­s. It turns out that the Shuf­fle had shuf­fled in some of Ig­gy Pop’s Skull Ring. I sug­gest­ed that maybe he not sing that one at school, and re­al­ized that if the iPod is a fam­i­ly re­source, I’m go­ing to have to be a lit­tle care­ful. Why’d Ya Do It?, for ex­am­ple, is right out.
