Most people if they follow sports would say Pele is the best all time. I am talking soccer. I met a man from Cape Verde, a singer, who co-wrote one of the most famous songs of his genre — he lives in SF now — and he told me that Eusebio was his favorite. The name rang a bell. I looked it up. Sure enough, when Eusebio played against Pele, like in 1962, before I was born, Eusebio did outplay Pele. I am so indie and into underdogs that I always believe these claims that such-and-such is better than what everyone else believes.
edit to add, nearly three in the am: this cannot possibly make sense to anyone else on the planet — and I narrowly avoided trying to talk about seeing Stew in Sf and seguing to a clip I viewed a few minutes ago about Davey Havok on Broadway — but what if Beth Ditto of The Gossip did a tribute to Cesaria Evora, perhaps if not some day then soda-day. (which gets me back to the clip I have of Bill Cunningham titled “Green Day”)
The original post was a capture of an actual fan mail I wrote to the young co-host of “B-Sides” late night music show…half hour ago…
edit to add, 25 or 6 to 3: I really will have to add my Davey Havok at Cubberley photos to this site; all I have are some prints; I will either scan them in or Swede them (Sweding them in would be I shoot the photo with my crappy cell camera and upload that, like I did for me and Tim Bluhm…or me wearing Los Straitjackets mask)
edita with three zzz’s: for anyone who reads “Plastic Alto” for useful information about the music biz: Los Campesinos who play later today about an hour from here although it might as well be a light-year not bloody likely I get much closer to “Treasure Island” than “B-Sides” the tv show, are booked by Matt Hickey at High Road Touring and record for the Wichita Company and are from Wales — which makes me want to link to the new “Moby Dick” Jake Heggie in Friday’s Chron musical or opera and I also did post previously about I think Wales although it might have been Doob-lin and some rock band and some football team; Los Campesinos like footie — it all fits, yes?
cheese whiz call it a day — sabbath — “six days work one day vacation” — that “Wales” begat me making a timely link to Joshua Kosman or Kusman but not Jerry Koosman review of “…Dick” made me recall that Stew, who I AM NOT REVIEWING HERE — he shared the bill at the JCC with the “Ellen Bernstein Bat Mitzvah” — said he saw an article in today’s I mean Saturday’s Times –not necessarily folded lengthwise so as not to disturb fellow subway denizens — he is flying to Chicago tomorrow to debut some Sun Ra based materials –about Jews and Arabs making music, which made me search-injun and suss up this. Mucho gusto adios amoebas.
