Sitting in the kitchen, the front edge of some Weather Named Katrina lashing the windows (you try that shit around here, bitch, see what you get), poor thunderphobic Ring Ting Ting huddled panting under my chair in a purple funk, and the true Glory of Broadband beginning to make itself known.
Jason Chervokas' podcast, Down in the Flood. Oh, fuck yeah! I'm downing Episode 1 now, "Bob Dylan's Old Weird America," and poppin' that sucker into the iPod for tomorrow's commute.
I think I could start to like this.
Postscript: Rain's so intense, it's knocked out the satellite signal. That's happened exactly once before in more than a year.
(Edit, next morning: Jason can't possibly have known he was doing it, but that first episode is perfect background music for those of us lucky enough not to be suffering in the aftermath of Katrina. Wow. An absolute must-listen if you can. Bob Dylan, Charley Patton, Jimmie Rodgers and others howling about levee breaks and archetypes.)
