  2. AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Morrissey

    My print version is on its way. Should have it in a week or so. But in the meantime I am going to start reading it as an eBook on my tablet. This is an ongoing post, updated regularly until I finish the book. Cover... First photos... Let the reading begin... Good morning. And indeed it is. After reading Moz's book in bed last night, I slept like a baby. Didn't want to put it down. But I knew I had a busy day up ahead. This is going to sound cliche, but the book is a page...
  3. Beautiful Baritones

    Sexy baritone voices. It's a primal attraction. These ten are my favorites. Eddie Vedder - Pearl Jam Listen to the sexiest voice on the planet! Tom Smith - Editors Listen to his sexy voice! Ian Curtis - Joy Division Listen to his hauntingly beautiful voice! Lewis Bowman - Chapel Club Listen to his amazing voice! Matt Berninger - The National Listen to his awesome voice! Michael Stipe - R.E.M. Listen to his fantastic voice! Morrissey - The Smiths Listen to his beautiful...

  5. Blogging Moz Live(ish)

    Tonight's the night baby! Me. Mom. Moz. Marquee. Leaving work at 3:30 PM. Will check into hotel in Tempe, go out for some drinks and tapas, then head to the venue. Don't need to be the first folks there. Not sure what kind of pics I'll get. Nothing worth posting on the tour thread, I'm sure. But I'll share what I get here. Soon Mom will find out what all the fuss is about. BTW, it's 86 F in Phoenix. I bet Moz is loving it!

  7. California Dreaming

    I miss the ocean. While I do love the mountains and rocks surrounding me, I am sadly landlocked here in Sedona. I've toyed with the idea of moving back to Florida—I have family there. And the Tampa Bay area has a wonderful boating community. Unless the ocean returns to the desert basin, I'm out of luck, as far as boating goes here. What about California? It has it all. I use to live in San Francisco and loved it there. But honestly, I prefer the warmer climate down south. I've gotten...

  9. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! Hell Yeah!

    This morning, Soloist, Irregular Regular, posted the song/video Over and Over Again by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, in the What song are you listening to right now? thread. Until then, I had never heard the song or the band. But wow, I'm hooked. I have been listening to their whole first self-titled album--it is amazing. Think Talking heads--David Byrne's voice--meets the Violent Femmes. If you are a fan of either of those two bands, you might fall in love with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah as...
  10. Cuyahoga

    Before Sedona, there was Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. The Cuyahoga River runs through my old city. Below are some pics of my son and I at the Gorge Metro Park in Cuyahoga Falls. It was practically in my back yard. I miss a lot of things about Ohio. But honestly, I don't miss shoveling snow. Cuyahoga by R.E.M. is about my old river. Let's put our heads together and start a new country up Our father's father's father tried, erased the parts he didn't like Let's try to fill it in, bank the quarry...

  12. Desert Life... and Shoes

    *Update ~ Just added an audio capture of the coyotes howling outside my window. Scroll down and click howling link. Its early... 6:40 AM. I woke at 5:00 AM. Oh don't ask why. It is chilly this morning. Yesterday was the first day since April that I have not run the air conditioner. Fall... is it finally here? It's hard to tell. This desert life is a strange one indeed. Hot summers. Cold winters. Coyotes howling outside my window at night. Thank goodness my Katie is a house cat. Otherwise...
  13. Electronic Graveyard

    Goodbye my loves. You once meant so much to me. I thank each and every single one of you for being there when I needed to listen, connect, learn, engage. I have moved on. You have all been replaced. Technology... innovation... killed off all of you, slowly, one by one. Let's have a memorial service. First, a poem... Nothing Gold Can Stay ~ Robert Frost Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides...

  15. Fleeting Landscapes

    Flashback, post number four and last one. These blog entries center around the little things in life and those fleeting moments... What is more fleeting than a sunrise? Taken outside my apartment on the early morning of November 2, 2012. The first one is from March 26, 2005... I still love The Cure. And have been listening to them a lot over the last few weeks. This one is from November 23, 2006... Fleeting moments... still grateful for so many things. Time changes the scenery, but...
