Esta and I were at the MFA today (pictures to come). On the way home, we were discussing “Long Distance Salvation,” which Esta has yet to receive (once I design the CD label, we’ll be in business). I was giving her a track-by-track breakdown, and said,“I am living liner notes.”
She said, “Huh?”
I said, “There are no liner notes for this mix, so I’m giving you your living liner notes.”
She said, “Ah. I thought you said you were living liner notes.”
We were silent for a second. I said, “I’ve been living liner notes. But it’s been for a John Cage album. And I don’t know what the hell is going on.”
—Hey, it was funny at the time.
