#The Wild Shore

i'm not very knowledgeable about music subgenres so if this makes no sense, my bad, but like - we're all going wild over the cowboy vibes of long lost, and we should, but a couple songs - "long lost" and "at sea" most of all, imho - feel like they owe more to like... 60s lounge music, or something around there? the genre of music that stuff like "somethin stupid" by frank and nancy sinatra belongs to? that strings-heavy, kind of dreamy, romantic, bordering-on-sentimental kind of vibe? i LOVE it a lot and it's such an interesting feeling to combine with the cowboy-bar performance atmosphere of the rest of the album. i feel like "meet me in the city" is the perfect bridge from cowboy emotion to that vintage lounge vibe (actually "meet me in the city" feels very noir which DOES feel like the perfect marriage of cowboy and lounge, somehow). anyway long lost perfect album

I closed my eyes and the wind touched my cheek, it breathed through all the needles on all the branches of all the trees, and said oh, mmmmmmm.  Have you heard the sound of wind in pine trees—I mean really listened to it, as to the voice of a friend? There’s nothing so soothing. It put me in a trance more like sleep than anything else, though I still heard. Each buffet or slacking shifted the hum or whoosh or roar of it; sometimes it was like the sound of a big waterfall around the bend, other times like the waves on the beach—still again, like a thousand folk in the far distance, singing oh  as deep and wild as they could. Occasional bird calls tweeted through the sound, but mostly it was all that could be heard. The wind, the wind, oh.  It was enough to fill the ear forever. I didn’t want to hear any other voice.

Has it ever occurred to you that other people see you in the same way you see them, as a collection of appearances and habits and actions and words—that they never get to see your thoughts, to know how wonderful you really are? So that you seem as strange to them as they all appear to you?

a murakami rabbit hole
my spring break is nearly over and i went down what my friend called a 'murakami rabbit hole'. here's a list of haruki murakami books i read that no one really asked for: kafka on the shore, norwegian wood, hear the wind sing, pinball, sputnik sweetheart. the endings either leave this big gaping hole inside you or a million different questions you can barely put into words. or both. i love the latter of course.

THE GOLD COAST - Kim Stanley Robinson (1988)
THE GOLD COAST – Kim Stanley Robinson (1988)
I’ve read people saying Kim Stanley Robinson can’t write characters. Well, they for sure haven’t sampled enough of his oeuvre to make such a bold claim. Just as The Wild Shore – the first part of a loosely connected triptych, each of which can be easily read as a standalone – The Gold Coast is a book about characters & communities. It made me tear up once, and the central story hinges on the…

3/23/21 Suez Canal blocked by massive cargo ship, the Ever Given

You can see how its askew and all the little tug boats trying to get it out on this map:

And all the boats stuck behind it:

It’s a particularly massive cargo ship and is basically the absolute max of what the Suez allows. The class it belongs to is, or when it was built anyway, the largest class of cargo ships in the world. (Not the largest ship in general ever, just the largest cargo. Some oil tankers are the largest, last I looked.)

Here’s a video of it correctly in operation going into port in Taiwan:
