Well, maybe. (Thanks to Rich for the tip.) Van Morrison generally gives interesting interviews, when he can bring himself to do it at all. At the moment, he is uncharacteristically ubiquitous, at least in the U.S., showing up everywhere from the Don Imus show to “Live with Regis and Kelly.” Continue reading “Van Morrison in Dylan-slam-shock?” »
Today I’m launching a new website, one that is designed to be a platform for, well, just about anything. It’s called The Cinch Review.
As regular readers would know, I’ve done quite a bit of writing in this space that is neither Continue reading “New website: highly recommended!” »
Well, why not? It is my website, after all, and I can get very reasonable advertising rates around here.
Not unlike many others at this time, your scribe finds himself somewhat underemployed. It seems like it would be missing an opportunity not to put it out there in the context of this website, since anyone who regularly looks at this space has some idea of whatever dubious skills I possess in stringing words together on various topics. If someone knows of a niche I might fill or a project I could help on, based on what you know of what I do here, then I’d be grateful to hear of it. I currently reside in the New York City area, and I’m also not averse to telecommuting, especially when the weather is nice. (That’s a joke; see, I’m really hilarious to boot.)
I’ve made some bread and butter in recent years doing technical-type writing and editing. I’m not necessarily looking to pursue additional technical-type work right now, but certainly I’d weigh any project on its merits, and as it relates to my abilities.
I can be reached of-course at firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com) .
And, should you be a beneficent tycoon with numerous media properties who would simply like to gain the prestige that would surely come with having my name on one of your mastheads, while demanding little or no actual work — well, then, please do step to the front of the line. (That’s another of them there jokes, see?)
Is Tony Garnier’s alleged vision of an “age of light” under President Obama coming true? Perhaps it’s worth regularly checking up on that in this space, just so we don’t run the risk of missing it. Continue reading ““Age of light” update: Hillary Clinton and China” »
Just a couple of e-mails to share, regarding the subject matter of the previous post. Thanks to Continue reading “More on: “What if Bob Dylan emerged in a different time?”” »
Thanks to reader Jason for his very gracious e-mail: Continue reading “What if Bob Dylan emerged in a different time?” »
Just another night and just another date on that long, long road: November 18th, 1979. Click here for a clip of Bob Dylan and his band performing Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking. Continue reading “Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking” »
Not together, unfortunately. I hadn’t seen this clip before today, of Sister Rosetta Tharp accompanying herself on guitar as she sings Up Above My Head. Great stuff. Continue reading “Sister Rosetta Tharp and Bob Dylan” »
A brouhaha has erupted (those things do nothing but erupt, right?) over an editorial cartoon in the New York Post today. As CNN has it: Sharpton blasts Post cartoon linking stimulus bill to chimp. Continue reading “<em>New York Post</em> cartoon links stimulus bill to Travis the chimp — Al Sharpton protests” »
It’s been announced that a company called Liberty Media will be providing up to $530,000,000 in loans to Sirius XM Satellite Radio, in return for a 40% stake in Sirius. There are perhaps caveats and loopholes; if you can decipher this article in the New York Times you might get a better understanding of it than I possess. Continue reading “Sirius XM satellite radio to live; desperate DJ Dylan to continue drawing a paycheck?” »
Who can keep up with how crazy the world is at this point? I’m serious. Of-course the world has always been crazy, but I really believe there’s an added edge these days, which brings to my mind an image of a train full of barking lunatics hurtling full speed towards a gorge spanned by a bridge that is busy collapsing.
And that’s my cheerful thought for the day. Related or otherwise, here’s a few odds: Continue reading “Odds & Ends” »
The latest news on it is at ISIS. The story is that Bob Dylan went into the studio last October, for the purpose of doing something for the soundtrack of a forthcoming film called “My Own Love Song.” Continue reading “New Bob Dylan album sounding realer and realer, with likely April release date” »
