Heavy Rotation

What I’ve been listening to the most over the last week:

  1. Echo & the Bunnymen
  2. Alpha Blondy
  3. Lustmord
  4. Death in June
  5. Wappenbund
  6. Hexentanz
  7. Tzolk’in
  8. Benga
  9. Dead Can Dance
  10. Sol Invictus
  11. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

(Four-way tie for last.)

Speaking of “heavy rotation,” Gustav’s a hurricane again, grinding his way to Cuba. Landfall is predicted to be around midnight Monday. New Orleans is still in the cone of anxiety.

Today I am taking a photo inventory of the house to document our possessions and the renovations we have made, for insurance purposes.

Our current plan is to bug out tomorrow morning before dawn and go bunk down with Jenny & Herb in Tuscaloosa for a couple nights. Unless, of course, there’s a radical revision in Gustav’s track after he passes over Cuba and gets in the Gulf.

I’m happy to report that yesterday’s adventure in fatherhood went very smoothly. However, last night we had our first-ever case of extended inconsolable howling. We still don’t know what was wrong, but this morning she’s back to her normal extraordinarily cheerful self.

    I wish you and your family all the good luck that I can. I hope that New Orleans can divert another disaster, especially so near to the anniversary of Katrina.

    I also wish that all the hard work you’ve put into your city and home do not go to waste, as you have been an inspiration to many.

    Your friend.

    I hope you are able to Get GAS and Bug OUT sooner than
    what you said earlier….Mayor Nagin was at least two hours
    behind the facts of CAT FOUR already, at the last press conference.
    CNN saying you may not be able to get gas at many locations–
    Traf Jams–etc…
    Hoping for your success…

    good luck on yalls evac,

    do your self a favor and map quest and print all the back roads.

    that contraflow can fuck you up if you want to go somewhere other than it.

  4. Aw fuck Bart, this isn’t looking good. Hope you guys are able to clear out safely. Even this far away, I’m feeling shock and numbness that this could possibly be happening again, so soon. My thoughts are with you guys constantly at this point.
