Rock & Roll Dishes · The dishwasher’s on the fritz, sched­uled for a fix Tues­day. So our eight-year-old’s du­ties have ex­pand­ed from table-clearing to in­clude dish-drying. He whines, but doesn’t get much sym­pa­thy. This evening, I put on R.E.M.’s Fables of the Re­con­struc­tion, turned way up, to help. What a great record that is, even af­ter all these years. I ex­plained to the boy that rock & roll is very help­ful for get­ting dish­es done. He was doubt­ful, but bop­ping a bit on Can’t Get There From Here.
