The Chameleons – Monkeyland

(Studio version) The Chameleons are one of my favorite bands. I was lucky enough to see them live in NYC on one of their reunion tours a few years back. In ’94 I also saw the lead singer’s band, Mark Burgess and the Sons of God in Hoboken, NJ at a club called Maxwell’s. (Live at the Camden Palace) […]

The Eyes on Avenue A

At night on the streets of NYC I’ve been hearing ghostly music. It usually doesn’t rise above the typical city noise. The music is mostly that of a solo piano, brass or stringed instrument. When I pay attention, I find myself envisioning a lonely ghost in a back alley, honing his craft. If I had any fears over the music, it’s only for my sanity. Then one night out with […]

So It Is Written by Savage Republic

I love the sound of this band. It’s very unique. It’s called tribal-industrial-art-punk. “So It Is Written” is from the album, Jamahiriya. I have one of the original pressings on vinyl. I included another great song by Savage Republic in this story post: That Damned South Street! Check out their wesbite: Savage Republic Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

Bald Punk on Writing 101

(Bald Punk) The other day I gave a pep talk to someone who had started her first book. Long story short, I dug through my files and found this article I wrote years ago. The voice sounds corny, but I still like it. Keep in mind that I’m no expert on writing. So take this advice on the “left hand side.” […]

Living in the 1920’s

(Angelina Jolie, The Changeling movie still) The first thought that popped into my head while watching the below video was that I need to re-read This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

Music of the Night

  (U2 – “Hands That Built America” – Music Video by Bald Punk) From the moment we stepped outside our Upper Manhattan apartment building, I was in a bad way. The pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts) knew it. They kept shooting glances at me when my lady friend(LF) wasn’t looking. They tried to […]

Olde New York

  (Olde New York video) Documentaries are cool. I like the fact that given modern software, one can create something along the lines of Ric or Ken Burns. I love this little “film.” This below photo from the 1920’s is one that I savor. It jumps off the page each time I look at it.   Here are […]
