Robert Frank's 88th birthday today! Happy Birthday, Robert - "You got eyes"!
Another octogenarian birthday coming up - David Amram turns 82 on November 17. Tonight, in New York City, at Symphony Space, Pete Seeger's Clearwater Foundation will be honoring him. Lawrence Kraman's documentary feature, "David Amram: The First 80 Years" will be shown, followed by a concert featuring Seeger, Cuban instrumentalist Paquito D'Rivera, Peter Yarrow, Tom Paxton, John Sebastian, Josh White, Jr, and many others. A recent feature on Amram (from the estimable Truth-Out) may be accessed here.
Ginsberg the cook. We've featured this aspect on several previous posts - the cool summer borscht, the infamous soup - here's notes on Allen's Indian cooking. Bon appetit!
