Arriving in Philadelphia at nighttime… driving from the airport downtown… resembles a view from a futuristic middle earth. They weren’t supposed to build any building higher than old what’s his names hat. They did anyway. I wouldn’t mind it at all if they respected the architects wishes…the old buildings here really have style. If you ever want a delicious store of ole factory delights go to the Terminal Market. I am going there for some spanikopita as soon as I finish writing you. I may compromise my shower even. The EELs surprised the hell out of me. I was not expecting such a performance!! It’s stylish… and humorous and monstrous to list a few of the surprises. The boys are incredibly smart players. E comes off as true wit on stage. Anyhow blah blah. The EELS crowd in Philly was good to me. I’m playing solo you know… It’s a character building task. I must have loads of character building to do given how many times I’ve been asked to do it!! spanikopita calling….
