We celebrated Earth Hour 2009 last night, 830 to 930 pm wherever your time zone was. We unplugged everything but the fridge at 730, went for a walk around the neighborhood, came home, and read books on punk rock by candlelight. It was pretty cool. These first days of spring are ugly but beautiful at the same time, a weird mix of rain and gray skies and surprising warmth. I’m finally finishing what was a gift from my brother, Chris Salewicz‘s Redemption Song: The Ballad Of Joe Strummer.
