Friday Night Concert Clip: Clark Terry, “Mumbles,” etc.

I love rock music. Raised on symphonic, classical and big band, my musical rebellion was fueled by rock. Like most of my generation, upon reaching my teens, I eschewed “serious” music for the sorcery of simpler composition; loud, amplified guitars, … Continue reading

Evan Bayh “Comes Out,” Joins Fox News

Mr. Bayh, clearly pleased to finally be able to openly state his views without fear of personal identity conflict, obviously prizes his new situation and the opportunity to come out of the “democrat party” closet to work shoulder-to shoulder with like-minded co-workers as well as pundits he’s taken marching orders from for decades. He stated, “I’m pleased to offer analysis of public policy and politics to the millions of Americans who get their news from Fox.” Continue reading

NWO is Back

I’ve been letting New World Odor float in the ether for some time now, waiting for a good reason to return. In my last ADD med consult, my physician asked if I’d blogged lately and I admitted that I’d not. … Continue reading

Friday Night Concert Clip: Rhinoceros- “When You Say You’re Sorry”

One of my favorite chicken-scratch/fusion funk/”southern-fried” (but not “southern”) confections of the late ’60s/early ’70s was Rhinoceros — a concocted “supergroup” conceived and assembled by management at Elektra Records — a label that among other distinctions, recorded at Jimi Hendrix‘s … Continue reading

Lazy Fast Food

The Double Down Chicken sandwich was born…a chicken sandwich made by cooks too lazy to actually “sandwich” its payload, for eaters who presumably for “health” reasons want to forgo the starch of a bun by substituting a truckload of fat or perhaps think they can get away with eating this shit pile with one hand. American genius! Continue reading

Politicians are known to be willing to say and do anything to get elected.  In my opinion, the right has elevated this characteristic of public office to new heights.  No lie is absurd enough, no premise empty enough to resist … Continue reading

Friday Night Concert Clip: Peter Gabriel, “Solsbury Hill”

To the uninitiated, Peter Gabriel could be somewhat intimidating, apparently dropped from another planet. His stage presence was carefully crafted and painstakingly performed. Critics claimed that it distracted from the music, which most agreed was top-notch. Continue reading

A Shot In My Junk

My wife teaches elementary school. Through the years, she’s regaled me with descriptions and anecdotes of 1st and 2nd graders, who tend to speak with few filters. Yesterday was no exception. Continue reading

Air America Crashes

In case you hadn’t heard, Air America, the “progressive” talk radio network recently went silent. Having listened to it until recently, through two poorly-funded AM stations in Central Ohio that failed and having worked for a short period for one of them, it was obvious to me that the network was poorly run.
