Double augers 2020 foresight



Alabama receiver catches perfect pass for long touchdown in bowl game versus Jim Harbaugh of The Harbaugina monologue on first play of game.


There is a pun here in that “auger” as a noun is a device to bore a hole and maybe you peer through the hole to see the future but yet it is not boring



Craig Wedge Matsumoto on Miles Okazaki solo guitar version of Monk Bemsha “shwing!!!”

Great post, Wedge. Great 2020 foresight. I have two admissions that are sort of self-cancelling. One, I like to brag about befriending Steve Lacy, about whom I tell everybody— as recently as the other day, or yesterday — was the first to play Monk rather than T himself. (I was speaking to the artist Marlinda Fitzgerald) three actually, in that I knew TJ Kirk and JT Kirk before TM itself. 2nd is I didn’t know Bensha Swing until my then client Jack Walrath played it to an otherwise empty house at The Octopus in Pacifica in 2003.
