Is The Offering Of Doughnuts A Small Kindness Inside Of The Wild Kindness?

Since the first days of this blog, it’s been readily apparent, I’m sure, that I’m a big fan of David Berman and the Silver Jews. But it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything Jews’ related. That changes today.

With my partner out of town this weekend, I indulged myself in a few hours down the Internet rabbit hole. One of the things I came upon was minimally viewed videos of David Berman reading a long poem at the 63rd MFA@FLA Writers Festival last October. In the first clip, Berman notes that he’s been writing a book about “certain events” in his life for the past two or three years. Watch part 1:

I also found that YouTube has a healthy amount of Silver Jews covers floating around on it. Here are three I enjoyed yesterday.

Grand Lake covering Slow Education:
