the laurie anderson adrian belew fretless wonder is now winging its way to a museum in tampa, florida where the curator (a mysterious ms. jade) promises it will begin life anew as a traveling exhibit. and just to make life sweeter for brownie I've sent along his compadre el sombrero. I wore the guitar and sombrero together in laurie's movie home of the brave. we were recording some of the movie's music in a studio down in the lower village. we had been comically smoking some big cigars during the session. laurie and I took a stroll outside for a few minutes and found a street-side flea market, my eyes instantly drawn to this authentic-looking sombrero which I bought for a few measly pesos. it seemed a perfect fit for our cigar-puffing antics and became my costume for the movie.
so long brownie! have a good life.
