Music, poetry, physical education

  • Last night, during her endearing but somewhat prepackaged between-song banter, Neko Case summoned forth unexpected but welcome memories of Adrian Zmed. It was kind of a Zmed-themed evening.
  • If you haven't already, give this early poem by Elizabeth Bishop-- er, Lizzie Skurnick-- a read. Or just skip to the end for the money couplet.
  • Bert Campaneris set a record by playing all nine positions in a game for the A's in the 1960s. A couple nights ago, Jason Kendall set a similar record: he wore all 3 major facial hair configurations during the same game. Beard to start. Moustache in the middle innings. Clean-shaven by the end.
