Happy October, everyone! We’re even further into autumn up here in the northern tier of the US (not counting Alaska, of course–it’s winter up there already). The yard is full of red and yellow leaves from the sugar maples out front and the staghorn sumacs in back. And it’s a brisk 39 degrees this morning. Time for hot coffee and a list of the favorite places I visited online in the last 7 days.

Just for grins, I paid a visit to Wikipedia to see who was celebrating their birthdays today. I was pleased (and a little amused) to see that September 10 is both David Lowery‘s and Johnny Hickman‘s birthday. I love me some Cracker, so to be able to wish both of these guys a happy birthday on my blog made me smile. Instead of Cracker, though, I’m going with a song off of David Lowery’s solo album from last year, The Palace Guards. Hickman plays guitar on the cd, too.
“Deep Oblivion” is one of the album’s many quiet, introspective tracks and one of my favorites. It reminds me a lot of Imagine-era John Lennon. “Jealous Guy,” to be specific. What David Lowery/Cracker/Camper van Beethoven songs do you like?
Happy Birthday, guys!
