Norman Lear Lives

October21

I had never paid much attention to Lear.

I feel that his brilliance was lost on me because most of his work was accomplished in the ’70’s and ’80’s. many people were certainly entertained, but I suspect most may have failed to appreciate what was happening between the lines.

I genuinely enjoyed his interview with Katie Couric (https://screen.yahoo.com/katie-couric-interviews/yahoo-news-interview-legendary-sitcom-044210555.html).

perhaps my favorite aspect of the exchange was his estimation of the people that worked with him, Carroll O’Connor, in particular. Lear is a fellow with some grounding.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

consider Everything Is Debatable

February25

in this case, LITERALLY, if not vocally.

consider Everything Is Debatable.

it’s an album generated by none other than Hellogoodbye.

Hellogoodbye-hellogoodbye-714517_1024_768I, for one, fell for this group while they were still pumping out ultra-catchy electro-smacked pop for a punk label, of all things, roughly a decade ago. Emma Jo was a new born, and Haley Anne would listen to almost anything I said, sang, or introduced to her, and with rapt fascination.

I fell harder yet when they managed to turn-down the beats and focused on more introspective acoustic-tinged tracks that remind me still of PlayRadioPlay!The Secret Handshake, and even Cute Is What We Aim For.

their latest effort is Everything Is Debatable that manages to refine their sound quite a bit with a baring-point middle ground between their collective past approaches. that said, the lyrical depth is rather a bit lessened. however, these songs will grab you hard after a few turns.

by way of example, test yourself with the following Youtube effort around, the tune Here (In Your Arms) from their not so aptly named album, Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs! and More! from 2006.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
