Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. Not prescribed/approved by my MD though. Will write anyway . . .
When Michael Sembello released ‘Bossa Nova Hotel‘ back in 1983, I immediately bought it. Michael Sembello? Who the hell is that? If you remember the movie ‘Flashdance’, there was a song called ‘Maniac’. That was Michael Sembello. This guy/musician/singer has floated underneath the radar for years. Maybe that’s how he wanted it. His brother Danny […]
James Gandolfini gone at 51. My close friend PG gone at 57. Another friend gone at my age, 54, less than a year after he was diagnosed with cancer. I hate going to see my Grim Reaper doctor. Just like I hate going to see my Tooth Pulling Bastard dentist. It’s never good for […]
