Taken at Jacknife Records in Atwater Village, CA
After praising the record store guy on his forethought to have an actual section devoted to Prog, he replied:
“You know, we’ve had one prog girl after another in here lately. There was a girl in here last week looking for a copy of Tarkus.”
We got to talking about Prog and he was amazed to discover that there is a strong (and growing!) population of female Prog fans. I personally believe that we’ve always been there, we’re just more vocal now. :)
There’s my cool story for the day. :)
(P.S. The section had loads of Yes, Genesis, Gentle Giant, Van der Graaf Generator, and of course, ELP, minus a copy of Tarkus) ;)
Sunday is Atwater Village’s day for the Farmer’s Market. Set up in the Well’s Fargo parking lot, you’ll find tons of great produce for a great price, fresh juice, fresh almond butter and marzipan, tacos, tamales, coffee, bread, dried fruit and nuts, kettle corn, fresh eggs, even a massage table! It’s a great neighborhood hang on a Sunday. This weekend i went hungry and had a latte to sip on as i walked around, had lunch (a sweet corn tamale), and found one of my new fave vegetables-asian cauliflower! SO delicious. Light and delicate but tastes like a mix between cauliflower and broccolini. I also tried 2 samples of pie before taking home a mini blueberry pie. The strawberry rhubarb and the blackberry crumble were awesome too. and YES, vegan! Most of the pies were, actually. A few had butter in them, but there were plenty of vegan options. Most of the foods stands clearly marked veggie options, which i always appreciate, so it was easy to eat and shop. A good way to start a Sunday and it’s only about a 10 minute walk from my place, so that’s a bonus! I love my hood!
