Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Tower Records




















The Original Tower Theater Building and Record Store, Sacramento, by Lee Santa.

This picture will appear in Lee's "A Journey into Jazz" one day soon, likely by Feb. if things go as planned.  If not then, shortly thereafter.

I'm heavily into editing the book and making good progress of late. Actually the book reads fine now; it's a matter of placing the photos. Toyed with several ideas on this before finding a solution, I think. Photos with side bar quotes from the text referencing the various artists therein.

Intense work, and thus I'm riddled with anxiety.  So we shall see...

Lee more or less grew up in Tower Records, listening to some of his favorite jazz artists in the listening booths, where he made sure he was good and stoned on pot so that he might understand the music.
