I hear a four-beat solo instrumental measure that includes the slight tapping of the cymbals, the steady beat of the bass, and the sustained notes of an electric organ. This soft, dreamy intro sets the stage for the strong powerful vocals of its lead singer. Electric guitar join in with the full support of the acoustic piano. A chorus line croons, “DO RIGHT, DO RIGHT” in the background as the lead sings, “If you want a do-right-all-day-woman/man.” And as the instruments decrescendos, the song ends just as smooth and poised as the opening of the piece. In 1967, it placed #2 on the Joel Whitburn’s top pop album chart. Even a certified RIAA-Gold album award. It’s Aretha Franklin time tonight.

"

It doesn’t matter that the boy is quiet when they pierce him
with the final pin
it doesn’t matter that the breeze is defeated in the corolla of
cotton,
because there is a world of death with definitive sailors
who will appear under arches and freeze you behind the trees.

"Landscape of the Urinating Crowd", Federico Garcia Lorca

A Commuter’s [Modern Day] Streaming Conscious I only have three stops worth to take advantage of Internet connection before the N Train moles its way in Gothic’s underground. Living outside the city and having to commute allows one to notice the tint in the sky, or pick up that unusual smell wafting in from the sliding doors. It’s a good forty minute ride into the Lower East Side, sometimes even thirty, if train commanders refuse to take pity on tardy commuters. Like me. Let the people watching begin.

Gregory Peck on the set of On the Beach, 1959.
The USPS should have taken this shot and put in on the stamp, rather than the black and white. Both are very stunning, I must say.

Repetto’s autumnal offering for the month of August—school shopping month—reminds me of when I was a kid and I begged my mother for the pack of felt tip markers in 84 shades. This time I wish my stars for the box of ballet flats in 40 shades.
