The Absinthe Drinker

The Absinthe Drinker
Victor Oliva, "The Absinthe Drinker"

Chuck Berry

Bad Uncle Chuck overhead: Long distance information give me Memphis Tennessee.... Sadness that such brilliance fades in transience: young people for three generations ignorant, as previous generations were ignorant of Cab and the Duke and Robert Johnson. What memory remains kept alive by old white men, and Jack White, and the ambient music guardians at Starbucks.

Six MacBooks, two iPads, one heavy oldschool Toshiba laptop, iPhones all around. Apple owns the cafe crowds.

CAUTION, CUIDADO, ATTENTION: baby on her butt slides her white pullover across slippery wet stone floor, laughing.
