WHY WE LOVE PATTI SMITH. STILL: Another mailout reaches us from the Divine Ms Smith:

But back to Venus. To view this slow moving but miraculous event please don your dark glasses or protective eye coverings. I myself will most likely miss it as i will be busy preparing for our own transit by bus to places known and unknown. I have to stop at the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. I only bring this up because it's something i avoided for a long time and i implore you not to make my mistake. Your future will be brighter, to say nothing of your teeth, if you invest an hour of your time once or twice a year taking care of this matter.

I know i have juxtaposed chocolate syrup and dental care but this was entirely unpremeditated. In any event my other mission for tomorrow is to purchase several pairs of overpriced socks to pack for the tour.

I can't express the joy of laying out a new pair of linen socks wrapped in tissue on the motel bureau for the next day. It has been the key to many a transcendent night in places like st. louis and dallas and knoxville. Oh wondrous socks. So uplifting for one trampin from town to town.


Footwear, astronomy safety advice, dental care - what other rock queen cares so much for her fans? When was the last time Joan Jett recommended you an osteopath?
