I read about Adam Ant today.
The Old Soldier walked to the public library and ended up in a comfortable chair in the Poetry Room scanning Variety and Sight & Sound, The International Film Magazine. A lot of the films were so-called small or art films, films I had never hear of.
Someone shot a documentary about Adam Ant. It seems that Adam Ant is trying to make a comeback. He was hot in the 80s. I liked Adam Ant. He had talent and he was a showman. The article said Adam Ant has some mental issues. He’s bipolar.
I looked out the window at the gray day and thought about Adam Ant being bipolar.
I returned two books and checked out two more: 1776 by David McCullough and Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller. I didn’t have an idea for a post for the magazine, so I was hoping the books would give me a good idea to blog about, but once I got back to my apartment I kept thinking about Adam Ant.
I had something to eat. Took a nap and started to read the Introduction of Tropic…
It was getting late. I tried to find the World Series on the radio. I couldn’t. How strange.
I went back to reading the Introduction, but finally gave up.
I decided to put something up about Adam Ant. I just wish I could remember the name of the documentary film about him.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from Pittsburgh.
