Seeing and hearing

01.09.08 | Comment?

The 2008 calendar above my desk here at work shows a different Wayne Thiebaud painting each month.  January displays this.  I like Thiebaud’s work for a sense of fun and detail, but not so much for creepy.  More than two-thirds of the month to go before I can stop looking at the devil’s toy closet.

This week I have been listening to Lucinda William’s “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road” over and over again.  It’s an indictment of myself that I did not earlier take the initiative to listen to her, and an indictment of American culture that I never heard a song of hers by chance until I watched the movie Talladega Nights, of all things.  In fact, the song plays during the credits of that movie, which made my encounter with that divine voice even chancier.  Bless those movie makers.

Of course that movie had Sepultura and AC/DC on its soundtrack, so I was always going to be kindly disposed to it.
