So Long, Superman – A Calming Musical Interlude #5

  On the ol’ Pioneer LazerDisc jukebox at the pub I haunted back in ’94 or so, Interstate Love Song was a staple on the 3 tunes for 2 bucks deal.  And my introduction to Stone Temple Pilots, or Pone Stemple Tilots, as they sometimes were drunkenly referenced.  Many a Kahlua & milk or Jim Beam & cola or whatever horrific beverage I was on were downed and enjoyed with this as backing music…   Likewise, mirth aplenty is remembered in connection to Sour Girl.  Buffy, Sarah Michelle, scary rabbit costumes, the 90’s, whatever…     It all got a bit … Continue reading So Long, Superman – A Calming Musical Interlude #5

  Don’t really need to say too much about this (but I probably will).  Everybody knows that RATM are one of the greatest anti-establishment bands that ever was… I never saw them in concert, although I probably missed (passed up) a couple of chances to do just that back in the last century.  This clip is from the Glastonbury Festival (UK) in 1994, and features Maynard James Keenan of Tool fame doing his spoken/screamed part of the song in the flesh.  Everyone looks fresh-faced and full of youth and passion. There’s also a cameo from a wind turbine behind the … Continue reading A Calming Musical Interlude #4

Why I Am A Bad Writer

Here are 13 reasons why I’m not actually a ‘writer’ of any description: I haven’t written anything ‘worthy’, thus far I haven’t provided sexual favours to a publisher I don’t write often enough I write what I want, when I want, and am my own biggest fan I write in the form of a ‘blog’ – and nobody but bloggers take bloggers seriously.  And even then… I also write in the form of ‘tweets’ – and my tweets are at a whole other level that people just don’t understand because I am operating at a whole other level (i.e., I … Continue reading Why I Am A Bad Writer
