I didn’t subscribe to this weekly trade rag, and I’m not in the entertainment business. Still they pile up on the island counter in the kitchen, because  it’s what’s happening baby. So I opened one last night. My younger than I look paradigm dissolved, as I viewed musicians, celebrities, TV, film/ trends that were as unfamiliar to me as I would be to them. Should I develop an interest in what they are pitching? I kept reading about bands I never heard of,

books, new killer thriller suspense series that will make my blood curdle,  single women who make love to themselves,  murderers to fall in love with, and ten pages on the OSCARS.

I’m grateful for those artists of mercy that I have been turned on to in my life. Those are the ones I’ll cherish. That first Stones concert, first performance artist,  exhibits at Mass Moca, an Afro-Cuban dance performance, Baryshnikov, Miles Davis, Cab Calloway, Tito Puente,  the movie Women In Love, and Thirty Something.


  1. *Oh fuck what a write…..I have to read it again tomorrow when I’m not comatose, but from this vantage point, you have zero’d in on the “Great Wall of China, the Continental Divide, the Abyss that separates the generations. A fabulous piece of* *insight that you have authored. That “write”, was like a line out of Carlitos Way, except instead of “writing”, she was “dancing”, and the two customers come up to her when she’s sitting with Carlito and they say…..”that was nice, really really nice.” BUT MORE SO. Very good dollface. *
