the photography:
after posting a facebook update that stated that i was about to mow the lawn, i was told by a dear friend from across the country that maybe i should be taking photos of said lawn instead. i took him up on his offer. so before i spent the rest of the day enjoying the friendly confines of the local horse track (it was derby day for crying out loud) but after i had mowed said lawn, i snapped off some shots of the faithful puppy (Monte Verde) hanging around on the deck. it was a glorious day indeed. the blossoms from the neighbor’s trees were blowing into our yard like soft floating summer snow. monte decided that he would roll around on top of an earth worm. yesterday morning proved that the world is at ease. forget about the M1H1 swine flu… summer has officially broke in chicago. things are gonna be alright.

the music:
things couldn’t get any more summer than listening to ska and/or reggae. this song was one of my favorite tunes in the summer of 1995 when i first listened to it. the lyrics are crass, the horn line is kicking, and the rhythm section is tight. exactly what i need when listening to american ska. ah… to be a youth again.

    We have to live within a mile of each other. Have we talked about this? I know this stretch of the Brown Line intimately and have a similar view from my backyard (compost and all, but alas, no dog)
