Posting More Frequently: Shoes and Old Men
A reader recently admonished me to post stories more frequently. Listen, I miss telling those well-thought-out, pithy stories as much as the three of you miss reading them. And I've always been torn between just stopping the tumblr thing altogether and dumping even the briefest droppings over here exclusively. But I can't.
So here you go. This is a pair of shoes. I've written voluminously, verbosely and ad nauseatingly nauseam on shoes over the years. This shoe is more precisely, a loafer/slipper of some sort. And I would never, ever wear it. I suggest that you too, consider skipping these. They look like old man shoes. Club Del Boca Vista style old man shoes.
And speaking of Old Man. I think Dallas Green avec City and Colour knocked the cover off of their cover of Neil Young's classic. It's sublime.
Dallas and crew also give righteous justice to Cowgirl in the Sand. Click on the link video above. But then click on this link for an even better version. Wait for the clarinet. Sweet.
