East Village, Sept. 2007
Sorry about that photo yesterday - I thought it was kind of motivating, but apparently some people found it depressing. I didn't mean it that way, honest!
Moving a little slowly this morning. I was out last night until 1 a.m., which is utterly unheard of for me. (I'm such an old fogie.) I went to see the brilliant Teddy Thompson at the Bowery Ballroom, at the suggestion of a friend. Teddy is the son of folkies Richard and Linda Thompson, and he put on a great show. His musicianship is impeccable, though his material is a little too "country" to be ideal to my tastes. I also really liked his opening act, Christina Courtin - even bought one of her CDs. She had a kind of Bjork-like voice, I thought.
We also went to Moby's tea cafe, Teany, where I had the most interesting chrysanthemum tea - there were literally little chrysanthemum flowers suspended in it. Very subtle, and such a neat change from my old standby, coffee!
