Been A While....So What?

I had nothing to say. Losing a friend, then hearing about the loss of a lot of people's friend, then being bogged down feeling nowhere to go but down gives a brother time to pause. But you know what? Life, it goes. On. And hearing that the boys is back, it gave me a little hope for the su-su-summertiimmme. For all you rockheads, thirty and over, this oughta put a little spring in your step, circa '92.

I got a new joint coming, blogspot style, so keep your lids peeled. Changes afoot, kiddies. Bigtime changes.

But enough about me. Let's talk some MCA, Ad-Rock and Mike D!

Feeling it!

In Memoriam

A very great man and good friend of mine, Mr. Alfred Boozer, passed away March the 7th, from complications due to a heart attack. He was 50 years old. He was a former marine officer, and one of the most well liked and respected securty guards at the museum. He leaves behind a mother, step-father, two sisters, a wife and four children.

Mr. B made every day a little better. He was a queit man, with a great sense of humor and a morality to him that made everyone feel good. We mostly just shot the breeze, but he was always so interested in how my 'career' was going. He was a true gentlemen, according to every female coworker I know, not that I wouldn't say the same. Losing him was a real tragedy. Just having people like this out there, knowing that there is goodness and kindness and love in the world, it helps make everything if not great, than a little more bareable. He touched many many people around him with his gentle grace and goodness. He will be and is, sorely, sorely missed.

To you, Mr. B.

Much love.

So Excited!

In lieu of a much more serious post that will be coming tomorrow, I will instead offer up this little slice of aural heaven. The band, The Broken West I discovered last year after hearing them on NPR. I bought the album, 'Now or Heaven' on a whim, and I can honestly say it's one of my favorite albums of the last 5 years. Period. No qualifiers, no I like it in an ironic, Squeeze is the soundtrack to post college ennui kind of way. If you dig great pop songrwriting with witty and charmingly sad lyrics, this band is for you. It's not heavy or country, like most of the stuff I like. But it's a welcome dose of guarded optimistic sunshine, which I think we all need.


These guys are playing Sunday night in Brooklyn, and I am more than a little stoked!
Here's the video to their single off the album, "Perfect Games".

And A Wee Happy St. Paddy's Day To Ya!

In lieu of getting good and ripped, puking on your Uncle Seamus and punching your dear ole' Ma, instead watch this gem of a movie.
One of my absolute favorites, and the one that most definitely let me know that I was choke full o' soul
Say it once, say it loud,
'I'm black and I'm proud!'

Good Night, Sweet Prince

Horton Foote, 1916-2009

The American Theater has lost a true giant. A true Texas original. Although I was a bigger fan of his screenplays, just knowing that he was out there, year after year with yet another well written, emotionally truthful play, made me happy.

Too bad it can't be my BoSox, but as the Dodgers are my adopted team, this will do just fine.
