A Few Of My Favorite Things

Besides my family here are a few of the things that help me face the day: Simple Minds Sparkle In The Rain U2 The Unforgettable Fire Descendents Louise Fitzhugh's Harriet The Spy Ken Kesey One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest Lewinsohn's Tune In Adventure Time Community TCM NHL Hockey And soon this will all pass away and I don't know what I will do. I did watch Shampoo today for the first time. Man, that's an under appreciated classic 70's take on farce cinema. I absolutely loved it.

Carbs make you fat and stupid

I seem to be living proof that carbs make you fat and stupid. I wish I could get back to my lean bicycle riding days just 7 years ago, but back injuries and depression have conspired to do a number on me. Thoroughly.

Great Music Site to get you through the darkest winter

Marcos Valle to vanquish winter

TS Eliot had it wrong

April is not the cruelest month. February is. We sometimes get teasers of spring during February in Tennessee, but this year we haven't even gotten those. It's just cold and gray. Day after day. Couple that with a broken down automobile and no job. It's been a very cruel month. Looking forward to the respite of a few warm days. They have to be on the horizon.
