I had the honor of checking up on Midnight and Auggie (the "Lambert and Stamp" of HIO) while the Shimamotos were on holiday this past week. On Thursday when I swung by their house to return the house key, Kat surprised me with the four LP Kleenex/LiLiPUT box set release by Mississippi Records which they acquired during their excursion to the East Coast. Quite a wonderful and generous gift!
Spent most of Saturday in Denton. Met with Terry and Big Rig Dance Collective comrades, Amanda and Whitney, at the location which the 8 December performance of "Homing Where I Roam" will take place for a general assessment regarding the space and performance aspects. Afterward we had lunch at Mr. Chopsticks, which is probably my favorite spot in town to grab a bite (had the chirashi with smoked salmon. Absolutely delish!). We parted company and I set course to meet up with my friend, Christi, and her family in Lewisville. Christi and I would head to Chili's later for dins, drinks, and to be joined by her pals, Christian and Linc. Wrapped up the day with BBC Radio 3 to accompany me on the drive back home (starting with Mahler's Resurrection and pulling in the drive with Dvorák's V Prirode still in progress). A good one, me thinks.
