So sad to read about the passing of David Berman. He was a founder member, together with Stephen Malkmus (from Pavement) of the Silver Jews (so named after the Silver Beatles). He was 52. Had recently released new stuff and was about to start a tour.
Random rules in memoriam
I'll miss this guy.

Early reports are coming out that Jane Fonda has confirmed the death of her brother, Peter, today, at the age of 79. It's known that he has struggling with lung cancer for some time, and the reports are he's died of respiratory failure.
[Edit, Jane Fonda's statement, "I am very sad. He was my sweet-hearted baby brother. The talker of the family. I have had beautiful alone time with him these last days. He went out laughing."]
Obviously a big Beatles connection...
...and an actor who was one of those who changed Hollywood...
...coinciding, ironically perhaps, with the release of Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
RIP Peter Henry Fonda (23 February 1940 - 16 August 2019).

Remembering the 2977 people murdered by 19 terrorist scum 18 years ago today.
those on United 93, the first to fight back, and those brave members of the emergency services who poured into the twin towers to help people and didn't get out.

Remembering Daniel Johnston (1961-2019), lo-fi singer/songwriter and indie legend who, despite suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, carved out an acclaimed career on his own terms. One of my favourite tidbits about his career is that in the early days, when somebody wanted to buy one of his albums on cassette, he used to rerecord the entire album and redraw the artwork for each individual person's cassette. For some releases he made dozens of copies. Even though his personal problems prevented him from pursuing his ambitions to the full, the purity and innocence of his recorded output shines through in every note.
Rest in piece, Daniel. I hope you find the peace you didn't get in this life.
"Listen up and I'll tell a story
About an artist growing old
Some would try for fame and glory
Others aren't so bold"
"But how can it recognise you
If you don't step out into the light, the light
Don't be sad I know you will
Don't give up until
True love will find you in the end"

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
