RIP, Anne Richardson

Anne Richardson

I hope you were happy to read my blog post about the PleinAir Conference last week. Did you notice that it was my first post since November? The story behind that is the all too familiar one of technology evolving beyond the ability of one backward Boomer with a 2012 Mac to keep pace. Many thanks to Brad Smith and his crew at Hot Pepper for bringing my code up to date!

Brush With Greatness: Courtney Love

I remember reading an article on Iceland’s economic crisis a year or two ago which reported that it’s no big deal in Reykjavik to have known Bjork before she was famous; Reykjavik has such a small scene that nearly everyone living there crossed paths with her at some point. For those who lived in Portland during the 1980s, Courtney Love is like that, a ubiquitous scenester whom everyone has a story about. I lived in New York for all of the 80s, but I maintained close ties with people back home and many of my friends were originally from there, so it’s not at all that remarkable that I would meet Courtney when she passed through New York sometime in 1985 or 1986.
