The Native Sibling
Interview with James Baldwin. He speaks carefully but his face is amazingly expressive.

The 20th birthday of a Minamata victim. Family pictures. I just love how stoked her father is.
I’ve got this stuck on my brain. Or rather, I’ve got the first song stuck on my brain. Fleet Foxes is a bit of a mixed bag for me. I like a few of their stuff, like this version of “Sun Giant” and then “White Winter Hymnal”, but the rest is just okay. The recorded version of “Sun Giant” is quite different, and the harmonies are a lot less distinct, so that’s a bit of a bummer.
Oh, I should mention that the only reason I checked out Fleet Foxes in the first place is because of this cover these two girls in Sweden did. It’s quite amazing.
Anyway, today is a kind of Fleet Foxes day. If you know what I mean.

(I’m sorry Mr. Hisaishi. But your books aren’t available in the United States. Or they’re $70 on eBay. Which I can’t afford right now. Someday I’ll go to Japan and buy an actual book. I promise.)
I love that sheet music is a universal language.
Also, if we look at this drawing too closely her neck must be unusually long and thin.
