So we closed our eyes and said goodbye

Posted by · 9:19 am · June 19th, 2011

I remember the first time I saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band vividly. I was late to the party. Springsteen’s music — still one of my earliest childhood memories — had been thrilling fans for decades before I finally saddled up to what is probably the greatest live show in the business (for […]

5…4…3…2…1…

Posted by · 11:45 am · December 31st, 2010

In a short time we’ll be saying goodbye to 2010.  Some areas of the world have already done so.  It’s a year that still doesn’t make a lot of sense in my head (both personally and professionally), and I’m sure I’ll settle on what it’s meant to me some day.  But I will say I’m […]

Danke

Posted by · 11:17 am · November 25th, 2010

Just a note to echo my thanks to everyone for making this place what it is.  I had hoped to get around to that Menken piece but tomorrow or the weekend is looking more likely.  The Lions on the tube, the bird in the oven, friends on the way, plenty to keep me busy.  So, […]

Predictions of a different stripe

Posted by · 4:24 pm · August 13th, 2010

Alright, it’s Friday night, the news day is winding down, McNabb is about to take the field for the first time in crimson and gold and you all know I’m a pigskin fanatic (as are plenty of you), so I figured it was worth it to offer up this.  You?

Seems appropriate

Well, not really. But it’s a better song than The Beautiful South’s “Rotterdam Or Anywhere.” Hup Holland Hup, and all that. I’m off to my friendly local beer garden. How are you celebrating World Cup Final Day?

Happy Thanksgiving

Posted by · 1:04 am · November 26th, 2009

It’s that time of year. I’ve got about a dozen heads coming over for a Thanksgiving feast.  Parade.  Football.  Screeners (a LOT of ’em).  A full day of cheer.  But I’d like to, of course, take a moment to hand out my thank yous. At the top of that list are my fellow contributors here […]

Happy birthday, Kris

Posted by · 6:47 am · November 15th, 2009

On this day in 1981, Terry Gilliam’s “Time Bandits” topped the U.S. box office for the second week running, Hall & Oates had the number-one song in America, and one Mr. Kristopher Tapley entered the world. Kris is in San Francisco, hopefully nursing a celebratory hangover and perhaps preparing for another. I thought of posting […]

Idle trivia for a Saturday morning

Can you hear me now?

Posted by · 5:46 pm · November 1st, 2009

I’m hearing there may be some issues reading the home page of the site.  It’s showing up fine on my end in Safari and Firefox.  Could be an issue with the new ads.  Let me know.
