3/19/19: Safe Travels
A dear friend of mine passed away recently. We had many wonderful adventures together. She was warm, funny, and life will be less fun without her. This is a song we used to like to play on the jukebox at our local joint. Not because anyone was lying or anything like that – it’s justContinue reading “3/19/19: Safe Travels”
2/2/19: Groundhog love
Every year, a bunch of poor groundhogs who never asked for any trouble get dragged out of their nice warm burrows by a bunch of humans in top hats. And then these very humans demand that the groundhog predict the overall weather pattern for the next six weeks. This is a very difficult task evenContinue reading “2/2/19: Groundhog love”
6/21/18: Happy summer!
It’s the first day of summer (and the longest day of the year). This is my favorite time of the year, and here’s one of my favorite sunshiney songs, by the Polyphonic Spree. I saw this band twice – once at Maxwell’s, and once at SummerStage in Central Park, NYC. Both concerts were great. IContinue reading “6/21/18: Happy summer!”

5/15/18: Seven Albums
I just did one of those Facebook things where you have to list seven albums that have been on your “active” playlist for years and years. You’re supposed to just post the cover of the album, and no need to explain why I like it. It’s probably some kind of marketing scheme that is actuallyContinue reading “5/15/18: Seven Albums”
3/23/18: Springtime and snowstorms and saxophones
In honor of things that are not what they were designed to be, but that are beautiful anyway.
1/29/18: I made you a mixtape…
Do you remember cassette tapes? They’re not making the kind of comeback that vinyl did, for a lot of reasons. Cassettes can get mangled pretty easily; the tape can get stuck in your tape player and then you have to get a pencil and wind it back up and hope the tape doesn’t get evenContinue reading “1/29/18: I made you a mixtape…”
10/9/17: Monday Funday Dance Party
Music for a rainy day.
10/4/17: A bit of wicked wacky-wicky
It’s a song, it’s a dance, it will be stuck in your head all day.
