I’m pretty excited to report that I’ll be attending author David Sedaris’s talk at Symphony Hall (Boston) tomorrow night. The thing is, when an author appears live, is it a “concert,” a “talk” or a “lecture?” What is it? Concert seems like it would involve music. Whatever. Anyway, Sedaris is one of the most entertaining authors around, and his book “Me Talk Pretty One Day” still stands as one of my most memorable moments on an airplane, because it was early on a Sunday morning last year sometime and I was flying from San Francisco to Boston, coming home from a work trip – and I was just laughing for like an hour straight. And I was quite loud and people were looking at me – I couldn’t help it, the book is that funny.
I’ve really, really been digging an album by a band called Sunday’s Best. It’s called The Californian and if you like great pop/rock songs, than this is for you – it’s a lot like a very polished Built To Spill if they played 3 minute songs instead of 6. Highly recommended and a great singer.
High Heat, baby. Luis Rivas of the Twins goes airborne while turning the double play against the White Sox.
