The Elders Convene - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
The Elders Convene
I'm in San Francisco for Joel's 40th birthday celebration, which takes place tomorrow. Tonight his longtime friend and collaborator Vance arrived. Together they constitute the only permanent members of the Elders of Zion, whose musical collages range the wild lands between agit-prop, ambient and dub.

The Elders' new album just became available on iTunes, as Joel details in the latest entry from his new blog -- I've added it to my sidebar on the right -- which promises to be interesting reading, since he has been freed from the burden of spending his best hours working at Tikkun. I'm delighted to be spending time with these two wonderful gentlemen this weekend and encourage you to sample their wares.

My ex in Berkeley was friends with an artist in SF who lived in the former sheet metal workers union hall at 15th(?) and Dolores.

(The space was amazing: he turned a 20-foot-tall auditorium with balcony, all lined with pressed tin, into a studio and apartment... *sigh*)

When David's bf Walter turned 40, we hosted 40 people for dinner in that studio. What a party. Thanks for the reminder.

That sounds awesome. How is your back holding up?

Psshhh. I got paid today and sent off for my next Battle Creek Thermophore. Sore, but the focus of cooking is the best analgesic to which I have access. Last night was bad. Standing is easier than sitting or lying in bed, alas. But it will be better soon.

Thanks for asking.

My best wishes are winging your way.
