Word got to me that Sir Paul is playing Dodger Stadium next year.  Against all realistic and biological odds, it looks like the stars will align for me to scratch ‘see a Beatle in concert’ off my bucket list.

Besides being one of my favorite songs he wrote, this particular arrangement is incredibly beautiful.




Back in L.A., back into my routine.

The trip to my hometown was the best one I’ve ever had.  Long overdue conversations with family, reconnecting with friends there I hadn’t seen in years.  It was a perfect holiday, right up to the point my asshole iPod decided to segway into ‘You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away’ as I’m waving goodbye to my parents in the airport terminal.  That was brutal.

But a perfect segway into today.

Sir Paul is pushing his new album, and somehow, ‘seeing a Beatle in concert’ is still a possibility on the bucket list.  We’ll see when he hits L.A. again.

Enjoy a couple of the greatest hits.



My favorite song by everyone’s favorite Fourth Wheel.





No need to be complicated about this one.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.

Have a good weekend!



Hell of a week, obviously.  How should we move forward?

Oh, what is this? Sir Paul released a new video shot in L.A., with alternate vocals?

Yep, this’ll do it!

Have a great weekend everybody!



The last song I posted in 2014 was one of John’s; let’s keep the symmetry going to start 2015.  From what the young people are telling me, this kid is going places!

(rolling eyes…)

Have a great weekend!




In light of Variety reminding us that Elvis ‘invented’ Rock N Roll this past week, I get a few extra smirks and chuckles from Sir Paul’s latest video.





‘Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.’

I’m in the middle of one of those nice ‘one step forward, two steps back’ phases.  I’m kind of, strangely blissful about it all though.

I’d like to believe I’m past the point of being naive about anything.  I really shouldn’t be, but when things started to quickly go south over the weekend, I was/have been reminded of how ‘connected’ I am and try to be to the world around me.  Not connected in the political sense; actually I mean this in the opposite way.  That golden rule.  Treat people well.  Support them. Encourage them.  Smile.  Make them laugh.  When it feels right, give, with no expectation that your generosity will be or has to be reciprocated.  It doesn’t always come back to you when you want it, but it seems to find its way back to you when you really need it.

At least it did and it is for me right now.

I had ‘Love Actually’ on in the background today (see above quote), but I feel like I’ve posted all those songs ad nauseum (though I was delighted to see Sir Paul say that ‘God Only Knows’ almost always brings him to tears as a perfect song.)

So instead, how about can I talk you into starting this week with some Rev. Al?

Get the week started right!




My life at this moment is something like this ‘Work…then go to work…then schedule time for the side projects…and a little me time…try to piece back together a social/personal life of some type…and if I’m lucky…I get a couple hours of sleep.

Today my brain hit one of those ‘breaking points’ where I needed a reset: minor car accident, computer acting janky, unexpected bills coming…blech.  It was one of those days where all morning I almost WANTED somebody to slight me so I’d have an excuse to just unload some of my frustration on somebody else (which isn’t right of course, but I’m being honest).

Anyway in the middle of my rage, ‘Something’ came through my headphones.  And I immediately started melting.  Nothing will top my film geekdom, but if you come here regularly you know music is clearly my second love.  This video is a couple years old but I think it nails it perfectly.

(And a happy Belated Sir Paul!)
