#104 – Daydream Nation by Sonic Youth

Today in the San Fernando Valley the temperature reached into the 110s, which led to our neighborhood having lost power this afternoon. We decided to seek shelter with some friends who have a grown-up house with all the modern amenities. Also, this is my first mobile blog post, so that’s sort of groundbreaking. More later.

We’re going to take a little break from the Kevin Bacon game because today is the 100th installment of NAAD.  I have commissioned this pick from Mrs. NAAD, who truly felt the weight of responsibility that this assignment carried.  I thank her for the contribution as well as respecting the gravity of this moment.  WeContinue reading “#100 – Amos Lee by Amos Lee”
