Deeply weird:  we had a 40-min outage earlier today, and the song that fired up when I restarted the server was "Wake Me Up" by Avicii.  The next notification I get on my phone: Avicii dead at age 28.  

First time we'd played anything of his in 2 years or so. 

Cue Twilight Zone theme...

 
Just think of all the thousands of times that didn't happen. I occasionally find out about fine musicians or authors only a week or two before they die. Is it me?

Richard Nixon on Barbara Bush

The 37th President, when asked to assess Daddy Bush:

"Oh, he's okay, he can do his job. He's just not very interesting. Now Barbara Bush, she is interesting. She knows how to hate."
 
I don't know the source of this quote but some stories are too good to check.  The hate here probably refers to keeping inter-generational feuds going.

 I used to love heading to the SF Tower after doing four hours of work on a Saturday morning and just hanging, until I'd spent all the money that I'd earned that day.

It's where I asked the guy in front of me in line if he'd heard that new Lou Reed that he was buying, and he told me no, but he'd taught him some magic tricks for the video. Teller told me that. Cool day.

Cool post, Kurt. There are a few Tower theaters in California, I wonder if they were a chain back then. 
 
I do remember getting a few Personics tapes at the Tower in Berkeley. That company failed but sort of foreshadowed the end of the Album as the primary avenue for music sales.

 
There's one here, too.
