Watching the stream of Juan Atkins's set right now, part of the digital replacement for the cancelled Movement Electronic Music Festival. Some classic Detroit techno sounds: https://twitch.tv/paxahau
I finished Cormac McCarthy's The Crossing. Haunting as hell:
"The world has no name, he said. The names of the cerros and the sierras and the deserts exist only on maps. We name them that we do not lose our way. Yet it was because the way was lost to us already that we have made those names. The world cannot be lost. We are the ones. And it is because these names and these coordinates are our own naming that they cannot save us."
Cormac McCarthy's The Crossing
The protagonist Billy Parham comes across a Mormon colony in Sonora abandoned by all but one man, a deranged philosopher-king. A snippet from the bewitching tale he tells Billy of a lost soul: "He had no faith in the power of men to act wisely on their own behalf. It was his view rather that every act soon eluded the grasp of its propagator to be swept away in a clamorous tide of unforeseen consequence."
God bless sodas that still have largely regional concentrations. In these parts, some of my favorites include:
1. Cheerwine, a Salisbury, NC cherry-flavored concoction.
2. Blenheim's, a Hamer, SC, ginger beer with lots of pep
3. Ale-8-One, a Winchester, KY, gingery-like brew
4. Dr. Enuf, a Johnson City, TN lime-&-sugar soda.
