Ever since that cursed night when #youknowwho was elected, every time I see an image of the beautiful Lady Liberty with her torch held high shining her warm and welcoming light of liberty and freedom all throughout the land, I am now, sadly, always reminded of the song The Night The Lights Went Out In … Continue reading The Night The Lights Went Out In America…
Pretty much shell shocked and without ability to articulate personally how I feel about Trump's latest strongman moves so I'll share the messages from two facebook memes that pretty much sums up my thinking nicely: The first shows a protester in Chicago (at least it looks like the Willis/former Sears Tower in the background) holding … Continue reading AMERICAN F%&#ING IDIOTS!

I … Continue reading "I Fantasize Shooting Trump Down…"

As my about page< attests, I like all kinds of music: punk, metal, industrial, classical, rock, rap, and just about any alternative therewith or without. But it seems that whenever I listen to Bluegrass more than any other genre, I always find myself thinking... Now that's music. Ralph Stanley, a legend of the genre, died … Continue reading The Toe-Tappin’ Truth
I've never heard of Canadian folk singer David Francey before yesterday but apparently he has heard of my boyhood hometown of Ashtabula, as he sings about it in this lovely song of his. I also learned yesterday that his tour will bring him to my Southern Pennsylvania manhood hometown in October. How cool is that? … Continue reading Ashtabula
I think Zeno's singing of Rogue Star broke my recorder
But seeing that I have absolute zero musical ability, I will gladly settle on being one vicariously through my incredibly talented sons... So, other than what's on my About page, I don't write much about my family here. But some of you may remember that a few years ago my sons Willis and Vaughan signed … Continue reading When I grow up all I want to be is a Rock-and-Roll Star…

I killed him? You killed him? We all killed him? It's what we do? It's what we think? It's our expectations? It's what you expect of me? It's what I expect of you? Your expectations are killing me? My expectations are killing you? Self-fulfilling Prophecies? I talk a lot about living here. And dying … Continue reading I Killed Scott Weiland?
