Midsummermatter in motion
The new geometry of an apartment without furniture: sit on the rug, eye the far-off ceiling. When you cough, the bare wall coughs back at you with the unpleasant resonance of a delay pedal cranked the wrong way.
In the land of the gods it is hard to unload furniture on Craigslist. The gods buy their furniture new. It took a couple of weeks to get takers for our disassembled desk. "Hella need that desk!" they wrote, and turned out to be a young couple from San Jose who were building a hip-hop studio near the airport. For the time being they were also sleeping in the studio. "Our door got kicked in," they explained. "You don't have a spare door, do you?" The young man was remarkably strong and heaved all of the desk components into their Jeep Cherokee without any help. I wish them very well.
seriously? we spent three hours and most of my back getting a thirdhand credenza from hoboken up in this piece.
