Madam Medusa: Issa's Sunday Service, #186


In case of wonky widget, click here

This week's selection, Madam Medusa by UB40, is a Sunday morning/afternoon stretch out your legs, space out your mind, little adventure in relax-to-the-max. Greek mythology gives us the lit connection for the week.

For those of a certain age, who got their Greek myth from Harryhausen before Hamilton, here's a little something to dust off a memory. For those raised in the digital age, here's some old school schooling:


--------------

the great demoness
flits and flutters...
paper fan
Issa
translated by David G. Lanoue

Don

Don-san,

I grew up with these films...25 cents on a Saturday afternoon at the Lenox on Chester Avenue, southwest Philly...it was a magical time, the perfect environment with the neighborhood shops and mix of people...a real gift to a poet.

Great song. Actually, that whole first album is amazing. "Tyler" and their cover of "I Think It's Going to Rain Today" are also favorites. - Mark F.
