"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. … No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”

Happy birthday, Martha Graham!

It’s impossible for me not to love everything about this piece from Albert Rettew (Phat Albert Productions).

My friend, Derek Walker, recently created a spread profiling this wonderful, wonderful man — Algier Williamson, whose positivity (Yes, it’s a word.) and passion for life I miss entirely.

Happy weekend!

In honor of Record Store Day, meet Paul Mawhinney.

Created by Sean Dunne + Very Ape Productions

Unfortunately, the most recent update about Mr. Mawhinney + his collection doesn’t bring good news: The Financial Times, Sept. 17, 2010


Side note: Check out T. Harv + Village Green Records in the Ball State Daily News! I miss walking by that little, green house of happiness e’ry day.

Dearest Paul,

I hate that I had to walk into a room blaring your American Idol audition, because I’m now hooked — Hooked on a show that I’ve tried to avoid for years — Glued to the TV just waiting for that weasely, orange-skinned, teeth-too-white guy to say your name.

Your teeth are great by the way. I’m sure you know that already, though; JLo said so. Don’t fall for her. Her love don’t cost a thing for a reason.

My love, however, is less than 8 hours from Nashville. What’d’ya say we just call it even and meet in Louisville? There’s a beautiful bridge there where I’ll let you sing your heart out to me. I already have a set list completed for you. It opens with that beaut way up there. Do you know Ray? You two should be friends. Will you introduce me? I already have a set list completed for the two of you, too.

Please, RSVP for our rendezvous ASAP. Do you know French?

Circle:  YES     NO     MAYBE   (to the rendevous, not the French — you can just tell me in person).

See you Thursday, luvr!

- Teri

P.S. I like tallboys, too.
