still-sound 214. Oh Good Grief!
The other morning I listened to a Vince Guaraldi record called Oh Good Grief! I had heard one of its songs on the radio last week called 'You're in Love Charlie Brown'. There were more electric instruments on the track than what I would have expected from Guaraldi. The early 70s vibe of it made me think that Stereolab must have listened to this album a lot. I found the record on Ebay and a few days later started playing it at home. Schroeder is crouched over the piano on the cover and Snoopy has glasses and a mustache.
I completed my morning by brewing some coffee and snipping some flowers from my garden and putting them in a vase. The purple flowers are heliotrope. I don't know what the blue ones are called but I did grow them from a packet of seeds last year. I like how the leaves look like dill.
