Dao Strom new cd and chap book

I am very happy for my friend and former client Dao Strom who sent me news (and photo-evidence) of the release of her new cd and chapbook. “We Were Meant to Be a Gentle People”. Amen, sister.

And just in case you are some kind of Don Delillo nutcase here is even more proof:

Dao is recording under the name The Sea and The Mother. I think the working title of the project was based on the pun of the French words for “mare” and “mer”. She recorded with Dylan Magierek of Badman Records and TypeFoundry. And she is a Michener Fellow as a novelist, among other things you can call her. More here.

edita, a few minutes later, way past my bed time: and this is a good preview or excerpt or companion text to Dao Strom’s new project. I like the part about the picture of her brother at the camps. What a long strange trip its been, for we linguistically-conscious beings, in this long story we call the universe. Yes, tieu. Yes, Dao.

  1. Hi Mark…I’m trying to get in touch with Kent Lockhart (former UTEP basketball player) and saw that you still keep in touch with him in Australia. UTEP is having a 1980s throwback game this Friday and Kent is one of the most popular ex-Miners that nobody has heard from in years. If you have a minute, can you call me at 915-521-6328? Thanks!

      In a related matter, I rang John Paye, the former Stanford basketball and football star, a few months ago, and asked if, if I could get Lockhart to visit Palo Alto and the U.S. for the first time in 20 years, could he John Paye host a defense clinic at his Redwood City, CA gym…so maybe if the El Paso crew and the Palo Alto crew all pull at the same time, we can drag Kent back into this hemisphere…like Michael Heizer and his boulder, which is what I set out or sat down to write about, before I saw Steve K’s post.
