Our yard is now connected with my brother-in-law, J's, yard. His black dog runs into our yard. J looks out the window as he plays boogie woogie piano. He now has a trimmed gray beard. I motion to him that I would like to jam. He motions back by wiggling his hand —maybe later. Later we see his new fireplace. It consumes an entire wall and the smoldering logs are stacked to the ceiling. I describe my Disneyland experience to a short Asian woman. I tell her that I did try the weightlessness ride and that I got to fly. I tell her that it felt like I expected it would.
Jim Phillips got the skinny on the Super Awesome Acoustic Show and pianist Lauren Anderson by hanging out in a bar and pushing a 3-year-old in a stroller. In the process, he may have teared up a bit. Read all about the frisson-inducing showcase in ¡Viva Hyperbole! Check out a Lauren Anderson track below. Low Spirits • Super Awesome Acoustic Show • Fri Jan 25 • 9 pm • $3 • 21+ • lowspiritslive.com
