MEDÚLLA

MEDÚLLA
#75 in my RECORD COLLECTION series
Dedicated to Myself

Björk's music always gives me the momentum to propel myself into the next chapter of life & adventure.

POST carried me from Asheville to SF; HOMOGENIC took me from SF to NYC for the first time.
When MEDÚLLA was released, I was living underground in The Hobbit Hole.
I'd convinced myself that I *wanted* to be there, but in reality, I was hiding from life & the world.
These songs, especially WHO IS IT, helped me get my courage and focus together to come back to NYC.
And we've had a pretty good run, this second time around, haven't we, NYC?

A theme of MEDÚLLA is birth, its joys & pains.
Let's hope that the pains of 2009 birth into some joy in 2010!

I remember the summer between 7th & 8th grade, opening a music magazine & seeing a photo of Mari Wilson, with the quote, "Diana Ross sells love; I sell TUPPERWARE™."
She made an impression on me.
It was many years before I could track down her music in North Carolina, but when I did, (thanks, Scott), the wait was totally worth it.
Mari is a precursor of Pizzicato Five, Saint Etienne, The Gentle People and all those wonderful people whose music is a way of creatively archiving everything thats come before, while adding new glamor & drama.

Betty Wright - TRAVELIN' IN THE WRIGHT CIRCLE

TRAVELIN' IN THE WRIGHT CIRCLE
#69 in my RECORD COLLECTION series

"You know, I heard a song not too long ago
that said 'You think that people would have had enough of silly love songs'
HA!
Awww, but look around you and you see it isn't so!
You see, personally I think that the world could always use just a little more love
The greatest commandment ever laid down by god was his commandment of love
But we ladies, we get so wrapped up sometimes in the things that we're doin'
We forgot to tell our man just how we feel and let him know that we KNOW he feels the same
& we know his love is for real!
We forget to do it so much and sometimes we so slow...
Sometimes we got to catch him before he's walkin' out the door!
Aw, but I'm not gonna get caught in that trap!
You see I'm gonna take out just a little bit of time each day & whisper in his ear and say, "Honey..."
- Betty Wright, LOVE IS

Cleo's version of NO ONE IS ALONE is a warm eternal earthmother hug, bottomless in its compassion. Not sappy, just the truth, told as only someone who loves you could.
Our actions have consequences, our place on the chain matters, each of us makes a difference.

#65 in my RECORD COLLECTION series

Ann Magnuson's work is like tripping in art history class (I r xperienced).
Her art is that magic combo of funny/poignant/gorgeous, mixing references from high & low culture in a way that reminds you that we all live in this world together.
I've learned so much, been sent on so many adventures, had my mind broadened through her words.
FOLK SONG is a manifesto that just keeps getting deeper and more real!
I was really fortunate to get her message about whats what early!

I remember Jon 7 & Pamela Richardson sitting upstairs @ Vincent't Ear talking about how great this album is, and how it deserved more attention than it got.
I agree!
Even though HAT FULL OF STARS isnt the most well known, its the most personal, her transition from "fun" girl to real woman.

#61 in my RECORD COLLECTION series
Dedicated to LOS BROS HERNANDEZ & Family and Darbi.

Peggy Lee was really ahead of her time with this album!
Accompanied by just a harpist, she spouts haikus, love poems & lullabyes, acting and singing the imagery with such understated sensitivity and earnestness.
I read in Miss Peggy Lee's autobiography that this album was very important to her.
She was right to be proud of it; its a well of purity & beauty that I draw from again & again.

Most of the other kids wanted to be Linda Ronstadt on the cover of her LIVIN' IN AMERICA album (the one with the satin hotpants & rollerskates), but i wanted to be Linda on the the cover of SILK PURSE, just hangin' out with her sweet piggy pals.

There was a time that i thought that Linda Ronstadt, Susan Lucci & my Aunt Edie were all the same person; up to that point, they were the three most beautiful women i'd ever seen, so it just made sense that they were all the same person!

#35 in my RECORD COLLECTION series
Dedicated to Bob & all my friends who crave a green bubble

Bob is my Dad.
Yeah, he's my stepdad, but he's been so much more of areal-life force & influence in life than the biological guy.
Bob is the one who taught us at any early age that Religion & Politics are all a big scam, The American Dream is a joke built on lies, & that animals are better than people.

My humor, questioning nature, generosity & fierce loyalty all come from Bob.

One of the things that was such a blessing all through growing up was Bob's record collection.
Crazy stuff from the 40s -early 70s...my favorite was Martin Denny's QUIET VILLAGE.
I would stare at the cover for hours, making up stories to go with the image, wondering what kind of animals were in her jungle...& what would i find inside that hut?

Not to mention drifitng & dreaming to Martin Denny's music...which was taking me on psychedelic trips looooong before i even knew what drugs or meditation were.

I am so grateful for the head start Bob gave us in life, teaching us to question authority, read more, learn more, & ABOVE ALL, BE KIND TO ANIMALS.

Bob didn't raise no zombies!
