Definition of Republican blindness

Posted: January 21, 2012

"I articulate the deepest-felt values of the American people." – Newt Gingrich. No, sir, you do not. You are a liar, an adulterer, a racist and represent all that America has managed to overcome in the past 50 years. We will not go backwards under the guidance of fakes such as you. You, Newt, are […]

Somewhere in your heart of hearts…

Posted: January 11, 2012

  I wrote this song in just a few minutes after hearing that most of the Occupy camps are now things of the past. And my good friend Doug Biro (Hudson River Films) immediately offered the help of one of his talented editors, Josh Schwartz, to put together this video of newsreel footage. It really […]

An odd song from a dream

Posted: January 6, 2012

It's very rare that I remember my dreams. But last night – or rather this morning – I not only remembered my dream but a song that was a part of it. I was in a bar. I was seeing it all from the point of view of someone who was very, very drunk. But […]

Past…Future…Present

2001:A Space Odyssey. A movie released in 1969, set far in the future…2001, the true millenium. A year that is about to become (or has already become if you live on the other side of the earth) eleven years in the past! And yet it's still one of the greatest cinematic experiences you can have. […]

Jokerman dance….

Posted: December 29, 2011

On March 22nd, 1984 I was still living in England and, because we had no idea back then who Dave Letterman was, I missed this.  What an amazing performance. Even Dylan having to hunt around for a harmonica in the right key does not damage this blistering renditon of one of Dylan's finest songs. He […]

My “Red Wellies” make it all the way to New Mexico

Posted: December 27, 2011

Well, in a story at least. My story The Hole was recenly published in Pasatiempo, a magazine distributed with The New Mexican newspaper. Here it is: THE HOLE The reason it sticks in my mind is because it was the first time I ever remember thinking about death. I was four, almost five. We lived at […]

A short story about life…

  I’VE LOOKED AT DEATH FROM BOTH SIDES NOW   “I’ve looked at life from both sides now  From up and down and still somehow  It’s life’s illusions I recall  I really don’t know life at all”  - Joni Mitchell Believers in god and heaven and all that stuff will tell you that when you […]

Has advertising finally jumped the (loan) shark?

Posted: December 6, 2011

For those not familiar with the phrase jumping the shark you can find the explanation here. But suffice to say it's not a good thing. I was struck dumb by the stupidity of an ad I saw last night. It was for some new credit card with the oh-so-trying-to-sound-cool-and-modern name of Slate.  Somewhere amid the […]

A Holiday Thought

Posted: December 5, 2011

From a blog I read: "I don't mean to hate on Martha Stewart, but she is, in part, to blame. She and her entertaining empire, leading us to feel as though we are less than if our holidays – hell, our lives – are anything less than camera-ready. She, last I heard, has a staff […]
