On the live CD, Emmylou Harris tells how she loves Mark Knopfler's songs. There's always a story. When they were prepping … Continue reading Sunday Music, on Saturday.
I've been playing around with ArtFlow, trying to get a reasonable likeness of myself. It came pretty close. Close My beard is no longer as full, but it is a full one these days. Compare it to a graphic my son-on-law made for me: Me with no grey I'll try and find a real shot … Continue reading Say, That’s a Reasonable Likeness

This was at thing in my misguided youth... https://youtu.be/7Zh5oMJo3co If you haven't heard Little Feat's "Waiting for Columbus" you gotta get it. They recorded that album live at "the Bayou" in Georgetown DC, where I've spent many, many a night.

I was walking the dogs the other day and noticed orange ribbons tied on tons of trees in my neighborhood. The walk at the entrance to the park I figured, what the hell. Who's virtue signaling what? I asked some geezers that I know that live around here. They had no idea, although they had … Continue reading Ribbons
