Matilda, my 15 year old cat I've had since she was a kitten passed this morning.

Condolences, Wayne. My brother in law got killed in a bike accident this afternoon. 38yo, father of two, 6 and 3 yo kids. I can't find words to say how stupid and nonsensical is this.

Dorothy Hoover, my Grandmother, passed from COVID complications yesterday. I guess she had a good 92 year run.

Friday Night in San Francisco has always been one of my favorite pure guitar albums of all time.  Will play some cuts and raise a glass to Paco this evening.  Should get inspired, and listen to some flamenco as well.  RIP, Paco.  Only 66 y.o.

There's an argument we lost the greatest living director today, Alain Resnais, still making films (and winning awards) at 91. Hiroshima Mon Amour, probably more than any film, colors what I think narrative film can achieve. No great obits yet, but I'll post when I see one. Instead a video summary of HMA...

David Brenner died today.  He was 78.  Can't say I ever "got" the fascination with his humor because most of his jokes were painfully obvious and thus not particularly funny, but he seemed like a nice enough guy.  Friggin' cancer.  RIP.

"Had Jack A. Kinzler not built model planes as a boy, had he not visited the post office as a youth and had he not, as a grown man, purchased four fishing rods at $12.95 apiece, Skylab — the United States’ $2.5 billion space station — would very likely have been forfeit."

My dear friend Scott Asheton passed away last night.

Scott was a great artist, I have never heard anyone play the drums with more meaning than Scott Asheton. He was like my brother. He and Ron have left a huge legacy to the world. The Asheton's have always been and continue to be a second family to me.

My thoughts are with his sister Kathy, his wife Liz and his daughter Leanna, who was the light of his life.
