the future always looks good in the golden land

summer summer summer vacation is coming (more on that laters) but i will be west coastin' it for a bit and i am starting to get really amped.



a certain lunatic who gives me headaches/808s/heartbreaks/etc. read me a bunch of essays by joan didion recently and i keep thinking about them. so i'm reading and rereading slouching toward bethlehem and still thinking the 60s were really my era.

books, guys.
BOOKS!
if you're not familiar, it's sorta like a paper blog?

Why do I not know who she is? Just read the wikipedia page on her and she seems like a cool cat.

Last summer I went to the L.A. area for the first time.... spent a month.... read Slouching Towards Bethlehem while there... finished it on the train home through the desert to Tucson.

LOVED IT!!! hooked.

I wish she was my mother sometimes. The majority of her life seemed so rich and perfect. The fact that she's somehow still going just blows my mind. Live forever, Joan.

I am all over Didion as well. She's an o.g., in The White Album she talks about her packing list for her journalism trips, i dig it.

TO PACK:2 skirts, 2 jerseys or leotards, 1 pullover sweater, 2 pairs of shoes, stockings, bra, nightgown, robe, slippers, cigarettes, bourbon, bag with: shampoo, toothbrush and paste, basis soap, razor, deodorant, aspirin, prescriptions, tampax, face cream, powder, baby oil TO CARRY: mohair throw, typewriter, 2 legal pads and pens, files, house key.

For some reason I find this fascinating, and am determined to pack the same. Someday.

Anywho, feeling you on the Didion love.
