Do you see what I see? Look on the wall behind our tree...

Thank you boys for this prayer

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes
And make them fit
Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt
And make it clean, clean
Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul
And make it sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Take these hands
Teach them what to carry
Take these hands
Don't make a fist
Take this mouth
So quick to criticise
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Still waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming up
The sun is coming up on the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, tell me now
Why the dark before the dawn?

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it break

Old Flu - New Flu. Who Knew?

A tip o' the hat to Karen Jacobson for this sumptuous aperitif, after which, a tiny goblet of mine own:

Read carefully, this could be you......
The Next Pandemic

I went to a gathering last night, where I and other guests enjoyed copious amounts of alcohol.

I awoke this morning not feeling well, with what could be described as flu-like symptoms; headache, nausea, chills, sore eyes, etc.

From the results of some initial testing, I have unfortunately tested positive for what experts are now calling
Wine Flu.

This debilitating condition is very serious - and it appears this is not an isolated case.

Reports are flooding in from all around the country of others diagnosed with Wine Flu. To anyone that starts to exhibit the aforementioned tell-tale signs, experts are recommending a cup of tea and a bit of a lie down. One should not expose himself to fellow employees for at least 24-48 hours.

However, should your condition worsen, you should immediately hire a DVD and take some Tylenol. To ensure this Wine flu remains a minor case, refrain from consuming further amounts of alcohol and stick to Gatorade. Others are reporting a McDonald's Quarter Pounder can also help in some cases.

Wine Flu does not need to be life threatening and, if treated early, can be eradicated within a 24-48 hour period.

If you find you are complaining a lot, it may be that it has mutated into Whine Flu. This is particularly common in MEN and can quickly spread to their partners where the symptoms are detected as a serious case of eye-rolling.

Ahhhhhh.....It doth go down smoothly, nooo? And now, another. Ever so lightly, and yeah, delicate.

So what's a New Yorker's favorite wine?

"I wanna go ta Flawrida!"

Have some

Good Stuff, Mostly

Now that I need some "structure" to my life -my quotes, but my dad's inflection- and I have time on my hands (hey, it's the holiday season, and NOBODY gets hired this time of year, and definitely not in this economy) I plan on doing stuff I've been meaning to for quite a while.

That's a long way 'round the bend of saying I'm gonna start writing reviews of stuff I dig; music, art, film, tv, books, stores and shopowners that - in a perfect world - would not only survive but thrive. Basically, I will blow my horn by blowing those of others that I dig. If that makes any sense.

You'll notice a link to the right to a song by Paul Chesne. This kid (I can call him that 'cause I'm older than he) is (now)a friend of mine that I met 'cause he was opening at The Kibitz Room for the band of another friend of mine - Jay Souza (50 Cent Haircut). He's awesome.

Don't get me wrong. So is 50 Cent Haircut.

I wasn't gonna start doing this now....I was gonna sit down, formulate a gameplan for each review, blah blah blah.

So just enjoy the song for now. Visit their sites and buy their music after you listen to it. It's good wholesome 'Merikan music.

ciao for now

triptophan blissd

The Lions lost, the Cowboys won (and with Denver and NY still playing), turkey got put away.

Aahh sooo; we can rest now, reassured in the knowledge that yes, Virginia, there will be turkey sandwiches to fuel us through Black Friday and Saturday and Sunday, getting us (at long last!) to Black Monday.

Which is perfect for us, 'cause after having all that triptophan in our systems, we'll have cash in our pockets but will be too groggy to get down to Whatsitsname's Big Box Store to continue the national pastime, Consumer-Gorging on 20% Off This and 30 to 50% Off That.

Like it? This is my "raining glowsticks blind my way" mug. I made it just for you. For Black Monday.

Okay, well not for this coming Black Monday. That would be crazy. Certifiable, in fact.

I mean, I believe in customer service, but comeon - gimmeabreak. I'm good but I'm not that good - you know, deliver-your-stuff-in-three-days-AND-over-the-weekend good!

Tell you what. I can give you 25% off the price of any prints and canvases from both of my fine art sites if you contact and order from me directly (via your paypal account). I'll make good on this offer until the end of the year.




Think about it. The sites are linked to the right and also below.

Now check the frig again. A little birdie is calling you....
