"…his letters, legal documents, a fan, shower slippers, a water heater, a desk light, a world atlas, two pairs of black-framed glasses, watercolor paints, frozen beef tips in gravy, a silver packet of Folgers coffee, amino acid tablets, kosher variety kugels, frozen chicken breasts, instant pinto beans, sardines, spam, ramen, rice, artificial tears, razors, ear plugs, a calculator, colored pencils, cream cheese, and frozen chili. A tag on each bag listed Powell’s name and the reason for confiscating his belongings: ‘Departure.’"

from 1982, “ziggy’s gift.” ziggy doesn’t talk, but the music’s by harry nilsson. until now, i didn’t know that nilsson had anything to do with it or that the film had won an emmy. it was just a favorite christmas special whose theme was among the few songs for which i know all the words. they go:

give, give, give.

joy, joy, joy.

live, live, live.

love is the answer.

so, joy, joy, joy.

give, give, give.

love.

this winter is the stupidest thing i’ve ever been a part of. 

i am pretty sure fishmans is a you-had-to-be-there deal, but i still love them from here. this set, with the violinist honzi (who, like singer shinji sato, died suddenly, died young), was my introduction. it was memerizing, just waves of feeling, impenetrable magic but for spiral stairs in part 3 breaking the spell by asking someone, “what are they saying?!” afterward, i bought all the band merch but still can’t bring myself to wear a t-shirt that says “i’m fish.”
