if heaven is a place, it’s got a gymnasium where the lights are turned down really low and decorations are on the wall, and alex chilton is there swaying with a girl he really likes to thirteen. he died today at 59.
When I first met J, I was flipping through his records, and saw he had a few Buffalo Tom records. “No one I’ve ever known has been into Buffalo Tom,” I said. And so we got married and had lots of babies and moved to Florida to retire and do crossword puzzles and die in each other’s arms. The end.
(Buffalo Tom play Mercury Lounge on May 21st. We’ll be there.)
