Adventures in good design, good eats, and everything else.

As I went out one morning…

In the twilight hours, that liminal space between sunset and sunrise, the eyes and ears are prone to trickery. The imagination takes over; hazy objects resemble ghosts, and faraway sounds evoke werewolves. But on the precipice of Sunday morning, amid Hollywood Forever Cemetery’s tombstones and mausoleums, the misty fog and leaning palm trees, Bon Iver provided an ethereal soundtrack to sunrise.

It was dreamlike as indie folkster and Wisconsonite Justin Vernon walked onstage with his band, Bon Iver, around 6 a.m. It was almost completely dark when the band opened with Brian Eno-esque layers of sound — their guitars and beards bathed in an icy hue from the blue stage lights — and awakened the slumbering (and some still partying) masses sprawled across the lawn. “We’ve never done anything this weird before,” Vernon said, between the slow-burning stomps and sweet falsetto acoustic solos from Bon Iver’s 2008 album, “For Emma, Forever Ago.”

My jealousy was unspeakable when I heard about this. I can’t even begin to explain, lawd.

    Well, I have to say that Mr. Jefferson would have been absolutely apaellpd with the KIA Sportage we owned. There should be a giant lemon in front of the building instead. Our experience with KIA and UVA were polar opposites. I will leave it to your imagination as to which one brings back pleasant memories. I am speechless.
