I bow down to people who fix things at my house- it's an idiosyncratic pit. & a nod to my usual posting habit (I chime in on the top 5 topics), maybe this should go in home brewing, my DH is off to fill growlers at Forge Brew Works (hope they still have radler). I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely summer.

As a classical pianist, I'm not going to sit here and say The Ramones were great musicians, but I'd rather hear them than dumbed-down pop any day (and that includes dumbed-down pop from their era). 

 

To put it in terms Andy Myers can relate to (not that he needs me to explain it to him), they had "terroir."

To Tommy Ramone and to the Ramones and the whole idea of the Ramones

 

Some time in 1976, I believe, I was at a party in Boston with an old friend who was a club dj and sort of a pop-music-world hanger-on, or perhaps camp-follower. A bunch of self-possessed and rather grungy-looking guys came in, and my friend whispered to me "It's the Ramones!" I had never heard of them, and now they're all dead. I'm not sure how to feel about this.


Tell me, thou little bird that singest,

Who taught my grief to thee?

It's officially public today: my brother and my sister-in-law are having a little girl in January. Neither of them can really drink right now, so I shall do so for them.

To James Scott Brady, who spent the last half of his life devoting all of his energies advocating against gun violence.

 

He died August 4, 2014, from a mortal gunshot wound he battled for 33 years.

This one is really bad. I was surprised to discover that he was the same age as me. Can't imagine doing that to Dame Edna--but then, I've never suffered from depression, which leaves me in ignorance coupled with great sadness. Sucks the big one.
