Personally...


I like songs with odd time signatures or songs with time changes. They get my attention, and they make me follow them. I take some pride in my ability to do that, silly as that sounds. I love nailing time signatures downn

But when it's "Gravity's Angel"?

I cannot nail this one down. It's been thirty years since I first heard this tune.

I can't do it. I love this song. But I surrender...

I had a dream, and this was part of it...



I don't know why.

It was a nice dream, tho.

Just blowing off steam....

I was eating a good scrambled western omelette breakfast after work Thursday morning, watching the news about this Kavanaugh son of a bitch. The reporting was fairly even, I thought.

Except for one bit: there was no mention of the accuser receiving death threats.

Why, oh why, didn't she come forward when she was fifteen?

You know what? The older I get, the more I hate bullies...

Hang in there...

There isn't a day that goes by when I don't miss Virginia. This Hurricane Florence bearing down on that region...

It's breaking my heart.

I hope this storm dies a quick drizzly death...

Good Mornin', America, How Are Ya...


I moved from Lowell, Massachusetts to Richmond, Virginia in 1998. Long story short, I wound up at a paper bag factory similar to the one I worked at in Pepperell, Mass. I grew to hate that job in short order, but, several years later, grew to love Richmond. That job lasted a year and seven months, and the place went belly up in 2007 or 2008 -- I don't remember, and frankly, I don't give a rat's ass. The important thing is, I found a city I would have happily spent the rest of my life in. I'd still be in Richmond today if I wasn't such a big fat innate dumbass. But anyway...

I would get off work back in '98, take the bus to the nearest stop to my apartment, and, on occasion, sing this song to myself. I was a born and bred New Englander, chip on shoulder, bug up ass... and, frankly, happier than a Kodiak bear at a salmon buffet.

Those nights, walking home alone, with the quarter moon looking like the Eye of Ra keeping watch over me, are a few of the happiest moments of my life. On my own, scared, yet not feeling alone and, somehow, confident.

Somehow, I knew I would always see tomorrow. That is one feeling Nashua, New Hampshire does not instill in me, or anyone else I know.

And, here I am.

Enjoy...
