first, early morning sunlight streaming in while doing inflexible person yoga…not a bad thing.

second, been thinking about relationships lately. decided they are like snowballs, or whatever the thing is that is snowy and rolls and not an avalanche.


alvin and the chipmunks

Posted: May 11th, 2012 | No Comments »

when i was a kid, i used to rollerskate in our garage to records, specifically, all three alvin and the chipmunks records: chipmunk rock, chipmunk punk, and urban chipmunk. no comment except pretty weird. if you can picture an 8-year-old surrounded by stuffed animals and skating around a garage at night listening to alvin singing “mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be chipmunks”…well then picture it.

chipmunk rock = pre-gateway to oldies?
oldies = gateway to eternal music love? (hypothesis)
