two bookstores on a saturday [august 13, 2005]

A visit to Borders and then to Barnes & Noble bridged by my first visit to a Chipotle. The first visit gave me a chance to sample Robert Plant's latest album Mighty Rearranger [more here], which features a rewarding song in 9/8 called Freedom Fries (Incidentally, Plant mentions India in an interview for NPR that was broadcast around the time this album was released). The shelves were dismal as far as stocking Harlan Ellison works was concerned. The second visit was worse -- only Strange Wine showed up. Weird. You would think that Ellison would have more presence in the stores. Oh well. Other music samplings included Mark Knopfler's One Take Radio Sessions.
