  3. Return

    Been Listening to The Cure's Disintegration... this is the effect... Collapse Sappy silly school-girl giddy Weepy willowy must be sleepy Deeply feeling death knocking But don't bring flowers just yet Only thoughts in my head Will dissipate with rest Untitled And The Cure's Wish Cracked Head guarding heart So well, you can Barely tell Underneath the Hardened shell Is a soft cell Gently cracked Open, no longer Closed Vulnerable Fragile, parts Exposed...

  5. 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...
  6. Passions

    Continuing with the reissue, repackage theme... these posts are about passions... This one is from June 19, 2005... Today that list would also include Christopher Hitchens, atheism, eBooks, and Photoshop... and a very recent addition would be discovering/being turned on to new music. This one is from February 6, 2007... I still struggle with tolerance. I can take most people in small doses... but... and I'm sure they'd say the same about me. This one is from August 12, 2006......
  7. Forever a Fan

    Here are a few more older blog posts... these ones center around fandom... Ah the lists... everyone makes them... This one is from June 1, 2005... Well I Wonder and Jack the Ripper still top my lists today. Here is one from June 10, 2007 ~ Experiencing Moz live... David is my son. It was his first concert. He had a blast and knew the lyrics to a great number of the songs. This one is from July 25, 2005 ~ Solo... Thought I'd share this. Chins up folks. There is good to be found....
  8. 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...
  9. 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...

  11. 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...

  15. Perfect Albums

    (*Update August 2013 - Fixed broken links. Will periodically check links for functionality.) These are the albums I love because every single song on each of them is a masterpiece. I am not a music elitist so some of my favorite albums are actually reissues and repackages... singles, best of's etc. The reason that I have so many Smiths albums and just one Morrissey album--besides the best of's--is because I feel that their music was more consistent. There isn't a Smiths song that I don't...
