random thought of the day


Today I was listening to a live recording of R.E.M. doing "Harborcoat" back in the early '80s. Reckoning was one of my favorite albums in my formative years, and it definitely stands the test of time. Happily, my 15-mo-old girl is really enjoying early R.E.M. (and seems to be into post-punk in general. Nice.)


Anyway, every time I go into my local and awesome Benjamin Moore store, I see the cans of Arborcoat stain. And every time "Harborcoat" pops into my head. I like to think that someone at Benjamin Moore named this line of stain after the R.E.M. song.
