TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Tonight the city is full of morgues / And all the toilets are overflowing / There’s shopping malls coming out of the walls / As we walk out among the manure

That’s why / I pay no mind / I pay no mind / I pay no mind

Give the finger to the rock ‘n’ roll singer / As he’s dancing upon your paycheck / The sales climb high through the garbage-pail sky / Like a giant dildo crushing the sun

That’s why / I pay no mind / Sleep in slime / I just got signed

So get out your lead-pipe pipe dreams / Get out your ten-foot flags / The insects are huge and the poison’s all been used / And the drugs won’t kill your day job honey

That’s why / I pay no mind

Happy Friday to ya. If I was an ostrich I’d surely have my head in the sand. Instead I’m gonna hide behind a stack of mostly old records. As I fumble through a few “crates,” I’m only paying half of mind. My other thoughts dash from late summer childhood memories growing up in NYC and a future that might resemble HBO’s new series Lovecraft Country.

It was hard to watch the series of events unfolding on TV and Instagram this week. The looming question: Do these people out number us?

I’d rather daydream about driving thru 1970s Harlem on a hot summer night. The ghetto nocturne, fire hydrants spilling on streets sweaty and baked.

Here’s some music to soothe the weekend.

Stay safe, connected, compassionate—and vote no matter what.
