TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

I’m on, I’ve never burned brighter / How’s the wine where you live? / Bet it’s expensive / One day we’ll share a glass together and ride the dunes / I’m writing too / There’s a definite vibe / You can’t be pure and in love / In the corner in blue / Is my name (In the corner)

It’s a very cool morning in the canyon. Not to sound like a “Californian,” but now that Mercury has gone out of retrograde, it feels like the angels will allow winter to proceed. And my my, this week we had a lot of electronic devices go haywire around here.

All said, we head into turkey week. Let’s celebrate and be grateful with some of the best news of 2019: Part 2 of my annual countdown of favorite “Idelic Hits”—the songs and/or artistry that made life just… way better dude!

I won’t write too much about 2019 this morning, but I will tip my cap to the Idelic Artist of 2019.

I saw two Aldous Harding shows last month. The first was flat-out one of the best shows I’ve seen in the last ten years! At times Aldous comes off as an absurd puppet with a touch of glam, Joni Mitchell, and with the roll of an eye her voice can soar or make you smile like a child.

God knows what she is singing about, but what the fuck do I care. I’ve had enough of 2019 and completely enjoy escaping with this otherworldly superstar to her home planet. Thank you Aldous… seriously, thank you.
