Album Review: “Flaming Pie” — Paul McCartney (1997)

Flaming Pie is held in especially high esteem by Paul McCartney fans, as the 1997 release was viewed as something of a “return to form” for McCartney as a solo artist. The album came at an interesting time in his career, as it was his first rock record since 1993’s Off The Ground. While McCartney … Read moreAlbum Review: “Flaming Pie” — Paul McCartney (1997)

Album Review: “Hot Hitz Kold Kutz” — Paul McCartney (Bootleg)

There’s a reason I haven’t delved too deeply into blogging about and reviewing the extensive multiverse of Paul McCartney bootlegs, mostly because there is simply no getting out of that particular rabbit hole. I’m not kidding either. No matter what your opinion on McCartney’s solo material, there is no denying that the man’s output was … Read moreAlbum Review: “Hot Hitz Kold Kutz” — Paul McCartney (Bootleg)

You know what I love even more than a local, low-key, fast, flat, and fun half-marathon? A local, low-key, fast, flat, and fun half-marathon in perfect running conditions. And we assuredly got that the morning of the 2017 Rotary Club of Weston “Run For Tomorrow” Half Marathon. OK that title is a mouthful, and because … Read moreRace Review: 2017 Rotary Club of Weston “Run For Tomorrow” Half Marathon (12/10/2017), or “Dry your eyes, we’re gonna see skies of blue…”

That one blog post when I shared some of my crappy writing from 2005…

Presented AS IS… and I don’t know what “is” is, but I’m sure it’s something close to botulism. I ripped the style off from Alan Moore’s ‘Watchmen’… Interstate by Jotham Mills It’s 3 AM on I-40, and the New Mexico mountains rush by, shrouded in darkness. The devil is less of a threat and more of … Read moreThat one blog post when I shared some of my crappy writing from 2005…

Race Review: 2017 Reebok Ragnar South Beach (11/11-11/12/2017), or: “It ran one step ahead as we followed in the dance…”

Any relay race is going to be a challenge. I mean, look at it empirically: you’re going to be travelling in a van for two days with five other people, all stinky and messy, driving around like mad, managing your body aches and fuel intake and sleep schedules, keeping all the race rules in mind, … Read moreRace Review: 2017 Reebok Ragnar South Beach (11/11-11/12/2017), or: “It ran one step ahead as we followed in the dance…”

Preparing for the 2017 Ragnar South Beach Relay, or: “I know it sounds sordid, but you’ll be rewarded…”

On the weekend of November 10-12, 2017, eleven other teammates and I ran the 2017 Ragnar South Beach Relay and, being the long-winded blowhard that I am, wrote a massively bloated blog post about it. And it was way too freakin’ long… I was over 2,000 words before I even got to the Race itself. … Read morePreparing for the 2017 Ragnar South Beach Relay, or: “I know it sounds sordid, but you’ll be rewarded…”

Buttkickin’ Halloween Songs: “Der Hund von Baskerville” — Cindy & Bert (1970)

Nebel zieht in dichten Schwaden übers Moor von Forrest Hill, grün-gespenstig grinst ein Irrlicht, es ist Nacht in Baskerville.

This is like a Hammer horror film come to life… Accuse me of including … Read moreButtkickin’ Halloween Songs: “Der Hund von Baskerville” — Cindy & Bert (1970)
