This is a yearly gig for us. Once the “Holiday” season has wound down, M opens her house on King Street in Port Hope for a mid-winter blow-out. Her place is crammed with art, guests, musicians, wait staff in fishnet stockings, and, usually, Farley Mowatt.
Here we are, towards the end of the night, probably playing Monk’s “Well, You Needn’t”. I think I play Monk with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer.
Damn. When I swapped the memory card from my camera into my sound recorder, I forgot to take the lens cap off. So everything I recorded sounds black.
I needed more capacity for my sound recorder, so I swapped in a memory card from my camera. Just like the old days when I used to rip the film out of my Dad’s Kodak and try to thread it into his reel-to-reel.
