TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon—happy Friday the 13th!

I’m not looking for another as I wander in my time / Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme / You know my love goes with you as your love stays with me / It’s just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea / But let’s not talk of love or chains and things we can’t untie / Your eyes are soft with sorrow / Hey, that’s no way to say goodbye

Everything is as fine as it can be here in the canyon. The weather has actually been beautiful, but short days and cold nights. Well, cold by our California standards. Warm blankets have fueled me through dark, dreamy nights.

As for the work week, I surround myself with musicians and those in “the bizz” who would help them. As I started to reach for my record collection and assemble this week’s set, I felt void of inspiration. The only thing I could think about was the lack of motivation Jonah has for his online schooling and homework.

It’s weird, but I dare say this prolonged Presidential election has taken a lot from us. Likely all Americans have some kind of post election fatigue. Here on the “left coast,” after exploding with joy and relief on Saturday, the “weight” of such a giant split between Americans and the reaction from the president and his followers has been a drag. It’s “fine,” and by week’s end I figured out my playlist.

Here’s an hour of farewell songs. Goodbye and so long Donald.

Stay safe, connected, compassionate—and let’s rock the future!
