I had a little bit of a tough jog/walk this morning against the wind and my sinuses aren’t very happy, but check out this view! The music and the scenery were great and I feel like I sweated out the pumpkin bread I ate this weekend haha 😱 #ogadele#prince#wham#u2#gnarlsbarkley#steelydan#shuffle
Psithurism — the sound of the wind through trees 🌳🌬🖤.
Here come those Santa Ana winds again… Hello SoCal Autumn! (…and Steely Dan sings to the Babylon sisters)
"Los Angeles weather is the weather of catastrophe, of apocalypse, and, just as the reliably long and bitter winters of New England determine the way life is lived there, so the violence and the unpredictability of the Santa Ana affect the entire quality of life in Los Angeles, accentuate its impermanence, its unreliability. The winds show us how close to the edge we are.”
~ Joan Didion, Slouching toward Bethlehem ~
Shannon got in the world’s oldest cab with the world’s oldest cab driver. His ID card clipped to the visor said Stan Jackson. He was covered in tats that hung off his flesh and he had bad breath, but Stan was a friendly codger. The backseat was covered with junk, so Shannon sat up front with him. Stan turned the meter on and popped in a mixed tape of tunes. Before they’d even made it halfway down the block, he was belting out Steely Dan’s “Do it Again” in a shrieking falsetto. It would be a long journey to the airport. 💫 #cassettetapes#mixedtape#mixedtapes#steelydan#oldguy#cabdriver#dundasont#dundason#rustbucket#rustbuckets#hamilton
The great Bernard Purdie demonstrating his signature drum pattern The Purdie Shuffle, that he used on Steely Dan’s “Home at Last” track on their masterpiece Aja. It’s magic rhythm brought in from the Funk Gods in Heaven. #steelydan#bernardpurtie#drums
Alright. Very funny. Is #ticketmaster busting on me for buying tickets to a #classicrock concert or something? I can't print from my phone!? Wtfo. I probably just won't even go. Ha. Just kidding. #SteelyDan is well worth this archaic effort.
