Friday Fun

I've been veering in a couple directions this week, so I don't really have a clear theme. But such is life.

No video with this, but it's an old Tom Waits track I'd forgotten about. Nice, quiet, bittersweet song with some great piano playing and before he really took on the "persona."

And the Avetts are always good for melancholy moments...

Then, as I was also thinking about the lyrics of The Avett Brothers "I and Love and You," I started thinking about Brooklyn, and this one came to mind. My friend Phil put it on a mixtape when I left the borough for grad school in Arkansas. It was a hell of a tape for a hell of a departure.
