Mark Fry ∆ “The Witch” (1972)

Perfect soundtrack for a November day! Coincidentally I also stumbled across this recent interview with Mark where he talks about his process in both music and painting and I can relate to the process as I and a few friends of mine work in both mediums.

Mark Fry’s 1972 psych-folk masterpiece Dreaming With Alice has been getting a lot of play around these parts of late. Recorded in Rome over a three-day period in the summer of ’71, but never properly released unto the world, the physical LP is extremely rare with copies fetching for much as $4K. Throughout the album, songs weave in and out of short, reappearing dream state segments that venture through the visions of Fry’s highly psychedelic dream with Alice—a reference to the Louis Carroll’s Alice Through The Looking Glass. Here we share with you the dark, Eastern-tinged acid-folk number, “The Witch.” Do enjoy, friends.

November Moon

I had to stop and try to get some decent shots of the moon this evening. It looked so large coming up over the horizon. By the time I got to a good position, a couple of minutes maybe, it had already gotten smaller.Moon3 Moon12Moon10Moon6

Street

Here’s an entry for the ‘Street’ challenge. I sometimes get lost in the lines that traverse the SF sky.ST 1


Here are a couple of ‘Established Shots’ from near where I live, one facing West, the second one facing East. I took these utilising the Ollo Clip for iphone ‘wide angle’ lens.

LATE ADDITIONS

San Francisco is such a vibrant city and even the streets and sidewalks tell a tale of a creative, progressive, politically and culturally charged city. Here are some things from my wanderings yesterday!

I remember when I first moved to San Francisco 10 years ago I began slowly noticing that every time I went outside for a walk or whatever, there were always at least a few computer monitors and/or towers on the street, usually from folks upgrading or what have you. A lot of the time they were usable. It really struck me then, how saturated this area was with that industry, that you could easily obtain a working computer off the street for free if you had some knowledge about setting them up of course. I didn’t have an interest back then, I only recently got my first laptop roughly 5 years ago. St 17ST 16ST 7ST 5ST. 6
