I don't know about you but elementary school was complete hell for me -- had a stretch when I got sent to the office every day and very often faked sick to be excused for the day for my mom to pick me up -- and sixth and seventh grade were if anything even worse. Having my juvenalia and the like archived on the internet/social media forever... Jesus, even in high school I kept towards anonymity. There's also the oversharing factor. When young I would lock the bedroom door from the outside whenever I would go out, even long before anything sketchy went on in there. I guess kids don't know what that's like anymore, huh? (So maybe it might not seem too bad?)
I found a jazz radio app (called Jazz Radio) and have been listening a lot to the Current Jazz channel (they have a few good channels). Not exactly groundbreaking stuff but it's intriguing, and I really like the 2006 Andrew Hill album Time Lines (the only post-1980 jazz record I own except for Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock, neither of which is really jazz). Do you have any thoughts about any of it? I'm tempted to go to the record store and just pick up five or six modern-looking albums I've never heard of almost at random.
