I usually stop at all these shops when I make an afternoon shopping trail through Atlanta. Alas, the pickings are slimmer and slimmer, as more used book & CD/record shops go under each year.

I'll usually head up I-185 from Columbus-Phenix City up to Atlanta, veer off east on I-20 over to Moreland Drive and up to Little 5 Points, hang out there a bit and browse Criminal Records (this is where I had my introduction satori about Rodriguez) and Wax-N-Fax, and always A Capella Books, although they've moved down the road a piece.

Then up to Ponce De Leon, hang a right at the light and follow it to Atlanta CD in Decatur (also a block or so from Eddie's Attic, the premire place to catch new and obscure talent from the Deep South area) some great selection of stuff here, and they'll pretty much get anything you want that is available. It'll cost you, but they can get it. Preety interesting used bins as well, which is where I mostly haunt, the new stuff at $20 bucks average is just too rich for my blood.

Rodriguez, by the way, was only a bit over ten bucks at Criminal Records, which is really why I opted for the Sugar Man collection, the reissues were still in the pricey "brand new copy" range.

Then, on out another couple of blocks to Clairmont Road, and Wuxtry, which I just celebrated my 33rd anniversary with, having found that shop, which looks almost exactly the same as it did back then, when I was with my father at the VA Hospital on up the road back in 1980, and just happened to come across the place. What an eye-opening moment that was, literally changed my life, or helped change it faster.

First record I ever bought at Wuxtry, sometime in early 1980, was "Growing Up In Public", one of the oddest, but in many ways best of all the Lou Reed records.

From there a stop at Book Nook, which has moved but somehow has replicated the "look" and floor plan of their old location, only slightly smaller.

Many little record and book shops, and many other things, and people, are long lost on this trail, so there's now a long "blank" strecth all the way to Oxford Comics on Piedmont Road, and finally Fantasyland, if they're open that day.

Fantasyland has, after many years, moved, and are now on Pharr Road, sitting on the spot where the fabulous Oxford On Pharr was back in the 1980s and 1990s.

Then mostly stop off at Varsity for a few chili dogs, and head on out...

Jack Kerouac called his "gloomy book movies" a "It's a vast ethereal movie,
I'm an extra and Gerard is the hero and God is directing it from Heaven."

"Letters to Myself" is how Norman Mailer described what it was that he did, which was writing,

"Passion --REALISM-- realism was the key. The records were letters. Real letters from me to certain other people." is what Lou Reed said about it in 1975.

Me?

I'm too busy living and writing down the story to navel gaze that much... so to each your own.

I noticed the brazen ones are now just picking up the entire stack of PLAYGROUNDS MAGAZINES and walking them right on out to the dumpster. Then THE BRAZEN ONES just go on inside and sit down and order a meal. Several times someone asked WHAT ARE YOU DOING.
Answer #1. These have bugs in them. Putting them in the trash.
Answer #2. These are for the recycling bin.
Well, the online edition of Playgrounds Magazine is also available:

Well, with a critique like that I'll just leave it to the readers to check the music and poetry out for themselves...

Shadowville Speedway

In a taxi watching a sporting house
Beside a Linwood vacant lot
Silverdollar moon portspotting
Constellation like a sailor's knot.
The sky was black, ink and glitter in the night
Train whine saxophone out beyond the light.
I'm in love with a ghost blue turns to grey
Put a pyramid on my head to take my pain away.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.

Brown Reculse magic drifting around the shed
Someone has it in for me I must not lose my head
Moving with the speedo life several with me left behind
Burned too many bridges defragmented my time.
Somewhere in time I've seen all this before
In a magazine or a dream of a distant war.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.

Manifested destiny a manifesto and a part
All the actors still agree that ever had a heart.
Hazel knew the karma, she kept it in a bottle
Black tooth mojo marked index cards
Bundles over the side of Dillingham Bridge
Splashing as ripples reflect from the stars.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street

Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Don't look back, don't admit defeat.

Another really bad song. Losing football teams could listen to it when they are losing. It would make them so enraged they might win the game. The way people feel about this bunch who create this mess is the same way people feel about that guy who ruined the Toomber's Corner Tree.
Well, thanks for listening and commenting with your opinion.

Luckily for me hardly anyone else agrees with you... heh.

Another example of the top flight musical backing and world class talent of The Conley Brothers Band. If you don't agree, then you're obviously missing something, somewhere...

A look at the REAL Shadowville, in a dream movie made by me and Henry Foster Conley:
