21 Again

It seems horribly weblog-ish to break the recent silence to announce that it’s my birthday today, but what the heck - it’s my birthday today, so I can do what I like.

It is, of course, my friend Donna’s birthday today, too. Happy Birthday! Our new tradition of eating vegan food on the 25th of March is a good one.

It certainly beats that other tradition - one that thankfully never caught on - the collapsed lung. This was such a nasty way to turn 25 that for the last two years I’ve had pre-anniversary pneumothorax superstition nightmares that would put David Cronenburg to shame.

Anyway, back to the grindstone for me. A profile of Gospel queen and disco diva Gwen McCrae beckons, with a little bluesy piece on the excellent Fat Possum artist Model T. Ford, and Andre Williams, to follow.

Did I say grindstone? Sorry, I meant funstone.

  5. happy belated birthday to us!

    Gwen McCrae, I wonder if I could fit her gig onto my triptych schedule, it’s lookiung a bit mental for me… I think I have 9 things to go to already, AND that Divine Comedy gig in Edinburgh with Peaches…
    Better rest up :-)

  6. Yeah, I’m not sure I can make it - but Gwen said she’d pray and see if the Lord moved her to dedicate a song to me (!), so I probably should. I’ll try my luck with maximum guest list blagging, so maybe we could do some high-speed running between gigs. (By running, I mean getting a taxi. Obviously.)

    And thanks everyone for the birthday wishes (and the prezzies!)

  8. The perv art book is brilliant - thanks again! I’ll have to do a post her quoting John Waters’ most choice perv art opinions…
