Miss Misery

Elliott Smith died five years ago yesterday, according to the local NPR affiliate, which devoted an hour-long program to his life and its meaning for Portland.

This reminded me of first hearing about his death in an Alameda, CA office park, a dot-bomb necropolis where, as one company wag put it, if they still had softball games like in the boom, and a ball sailed through a window, now there’d be silence.

Which reminded me we moved here two years ago last week.
