  • Ty’s Just Looking For A Place To Land

    Posted on August 10, 2005 by admin in Popular Culture.

    I'm not big on the competition shows on television these days. However, I have been watching one show consistently this summer – Rock Star: INXS. No, I'm not the biggest INXS fan in the world, although I do own some of their music. And besides, having gone through high school in the Eighties, the music […]

  • Anne Sexton and Peter Gabriel

    Posted on July 29, 2005 by admin in Books, Poetry and Short Stories.

    Anne Sexton is by far my favorite poet. I've spent hour upon hour reading and re-reading her work and always coming away with a new perspective on the woman. While Peter Gabriel is one of my favorite musicians, I had absolutely no idea that Mercy Street was about Anne. Of course, if I'd taken the […]

    And they said it would rain. And that rain would be purple. I just got home from a night out with Mrs. Glove Taker Offer. We saw a little man from Minnesota rock the MCI Center. And then some. The entire concert was excellent. The highlight of Prince's show was clearly his acoustic set. He […]

  • Rush Concert

    Posted on August 4, 2004 by admin in Popular Culture.

    I saw a trio of Canadians at the Nissan Pavilion last night. That makes the third time I've experienced the nirvana of a live Neil Peart drum solo. I'm tired today, but not as tired as this lunatic, who drove eight hours roundtrip to make the same show. Last night's show was as good or […]

  • Body Count

    Posted on May 12, 2003 by admin in Popular Culture.

    Cal Ulmann has blogged about Ice-T's return with Body Count. All I ask is when? When is the new album due in stores? I saw Body Count perform on August 17, 1991 during Lollapalooza at Walnut Creek in Raleigh, NC. I was not disappointed. Memories. To be on the verge of 21 again and have […]

  • Dixie Chicks and Toby Keith

    Posted on April 17, 2003 by admin in Popular Culture.

    Just for s & g, I headed over to Billboard to check out how the Dixie Chicks have been doing since the flap over Natalie's remarks about Bush. Interestingly enough, their album is still number one on the country charts. At number two – Toby Keith. Vocal anti-war artist – number one, vocal pro-war artist […]

  • Olio

    Posted on February 20, 2003 by admin in Popular Culture.

    I've recently received a few emails from Dehaven, one half of Olio, a group that bills themselves as "too funk for rock too rock for funk." Further they believe in abolition of racial categorization and address that issue in the song "Hey Champ" on their new release Colour of Music. Ya'll already know my take […]

  • Agnostic Front

    Posted on September 30, 2002 by admin in Popular Culture.

    I've added a new link to one of my favorite groups under the "Music" category. Normally, I wouldn't say anything about new links, but this one points to Agnostic Front, the hardcore punk skinhead group. I've seen them live twice, the first time in Wilmington, NC, two days before shipping out to Desert Shield/Storm. Five […]

  • Los Lobos

    Posted on September 22, 2002 by admin in Popular Culture.

    I got the new Los Lobos CD Good Morning Aztlan for my birthday last week. Very cool, a good mix of tejano, blues, folk and rock. Check it out.

  • Neil Peart and Rush

    Posted on July 10, 2002 by admin in Popular Culture.

    I went to the Rush concert last night at Nissan Pavilion. The show was intense and the trio showed the crowd that they still have it. I guess several years away from the road didn't hurt the band's performance. They played a good mix of new and old Rush standards like Tom Sawyer, Limelight, Spirit […]
