Election results

Remember when Americans would gripe about election results, but then we'd stand behind our President anyway? Remember being Americans, and not liberals versus the right?

Sigh... maybe I need some 'member berries...

Alice Cooper's Lost Years

Watching an interview with Alice Cooper from 1981. This was hist "lost" period, in which he claims to have little memory due to the oblivion of alcohol. Despite his apparent haziness during this interview, there's a certain lucidity, a recognition of how the world works, and some interesting insights.

I always enjoyed the albums from that period: Special Forces , Zipper Catches Skin , Dada . They were zany and weird and punk-ish, with great songwriting. He never performs that stuff live anymore, though I think more than a few fans would love to hear some of those songs...

RIP David Bowie

I'm not a prophet or a stone-age man
Just a mortal with potential of a superman
I'm living on...

from Quicksand (from the album Hunky Dory, 1971)

Happy New Year (2016 edition)

Do something amazing this year.

Visit Paris. Or Scotland (in a kilt in Edinboro, doing a modern dance...).

Write that novel. Publish that book of poems.

Learn a new language. Learn to type properly.

Get healthier.

Don't just dream. Do.
