“Up here so high, the bars they break… Up here so high, the sky I scrape… Had my eyes peeled both wide open, and I got a glimpse… Of my innocence…got back my innocence…” I spent a week in the Philippines in 1996 when I was in the […]
I write sometimes. Sometimes people read what I write, but not often.
I like to smell everything in Yankee Candle and pretend I'm traveling to far off lands. I don't like too many "nah nah's" in songs. I like my coffee black.
I recorded a solo album in 1998 with 9 original songs and a cover of "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window" because I knew the chords. Hardly anyone has heard it.
“Well if all the lights said stop / And the oceans they did drop / Then I’d always feel so on top if not for you” I loves me a good friend music recommendation. So much of what I listen to is based on my extensive (obsessive) research […]
“I got something for your mind, your body, and your soul. Everyday of my life.” I used to think I couldn’t dance. I wasn’t wrong. I had no rhythm, no grace, no silky smooth movement. Just a combination of horrible, awkward gyrations and pauses. I was unsure of […]
“Born to please / Every simple need / I stand alone” I spend most of my day, consciously and unconsciously, looking for symmetry, perfect angles, and order with the things that surround me. It’s satisfying to see items on flat surfaces are at right angles or straight lines […]
“Join me at the table if you’d like to place a bet / All the cash that’s filling your pockets is waiting to be spent.” There’s ambition, and then there’s AMBITION. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, in addition to having the best band name in rock today, released […]
My new go-to spot to lose myself in “walking around music” is the supermarket — Wegman’s in Johnson City, NY to be more specific. I actually enjoy putting together a grocery list, grabbing a pair of headphones, and shopping by myself, as long as I have something to […]
“You give it away like free samples / But I don’t want what anyone can have” I was at a work event last week and we liked to enjoy ourselves at night. It was one of those events where, following dinner, adults from their mid-20’s to mid-50’s turn into […]
“De noite na cama / Eu fico pensando / Se você me ama / E quando” I can smell this song. I’m serious. Pheromones, a certain funk, penetrates the part of my brain that conjures up memories, whether they be real or fabricated. I smell bodies and heat and imagine […]
One of my close Navy friends used to be a huge Smashing Pumpkins fan and probably still is. We’d crank the Pumpkins often back in the mid 90’s during their heyday. He’d get completely lost in Corgan’s majesty and say, “I can’t believe everyone in the world isn’t […]
Underneath the mango tree, me honey and me can watch for the moon / Underneath the mango tree, me honey and me make boolooloop soon It’s James Bond Friday, or #JBF as we like to call it, at the Square Seed Worldwide Headquarters in Gstaad, Switzerland. Fridays are […]
