For whom it may concern, my music library is finally shaping up to its prior shape and size and, in fact, is probably better than it was before. My top 25 is also beginning to reflect my true tastes and isn’t as heavily influenced on the flood of recently released music. If you haven’t given it a spin already, be sure to listen to the new Beck, Bon Iver, and maybe Judi Chicago.
Returning to my list making, there are a few more things I have learned about Atlanta, including:
1. There is no such thing as a liquor store here. Alright, that is kind of a lie. The truth is, for a long time, I was under the impression that Atlanta had an unusual need for packaging supplies as the busy streets are sprinkled with “Package Stores”. Apparently though, booze in a paper bag is the only package you’re going to find at these innumerable package stores.
2. Atlanta heavily guards it’s cemeteries. I happen to consider roaming graveyards and reading headstones at night amongst my favorite past times and Atlanta has rained on my late night zombie hunting parade. On multiple occasions, entrance into cemeteries in the wee night hours has been problematic with guards and police swarming the premises, a problem I have yet to seriously encounter in my previous graveyard roaming experiences.
3. Club Motion is not where it’s at. Exploring the Atlanta underground was fun and all, but Club Motion didn’t, and likely won’t, make my list of things I’m all about.
4. Ducks puts crack into their doughnuts. I’ve been trying to figure out what makes Duck’s doughnuts so incredibly scrumptious, crumbly and addictive and this seems to be the only logical explanation.
5. 88.5 knows how to do the 80’s and French pop. I haven’t been listening to the radio all that much, but I stumbled across this gem recently and couldn’t have been more pleased with the result.
And, for the record, I now understand why brunch is such a big deal. It is positively wonderful.
