Music + people = texture

Do you associate particular songs or bands with your friends, both current and long ago? Maybe I’m just getting older and memories jar me like an odd textured blanket, but I find myself hearing a song and my mind just wanders to….someone.  So, first up as I’m cooking dinner is Uncle Tupelo. When I hear…

Storm, music, dinner

Other than middle of the night summer thunderstorms, I love late afternoon, dinner time thunderstorms.  Shrimp and pasta, my kitchen rattling and flashing, Luna playing in the background.  Shrimp tossed with red pepper flakes, fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil and parsley. A little white wine to deglaze. Linguini.  Music, nature bleeding off the oppressive 100 degree…

Crazy Wilco night at the Mann Music Center

Wilco has always been in the back of my mind musically since they started in 1994 or so. Yet, I never quite “got” them, until last night. Better late than never.  32 songs. Lots of astounding and weird time/key changes, dramatic layering of sound and light. The musicianship was top notch. Jeff Tweedy leads one…

Soft Shell Crab Season

84 degrees, soft breeze, leaves almost full on trees and deer romping through the woods.  It’s about time to have dinner outside. Soft shell crab po boy with scratch ceasar dressing for the greens and tomato on fresh baguette from The Bread Box and Bakery in Perkasie PA.  Duckhorn Chardonnay is a nice compliment to the casual…

Music Week

  It’s been a while where I’ve gone into a sea of people and lost myself for a while. Tuesday night I spent with Bob Mould and his mates Jason Narducy and Jon Wurster at Underground Arts in Philly, along with 300 other sweaty folks. Bob played a good number of songs off “Patch the…

Sun and warmth is a game changer

Feeling a little less hibernat-y today.  Instant smile with “Into Your Arms“by Lemonheads. Simply a feel good, springtime tune.

Spring…delayed

March was a tease. April is playing February. My daffodils are confused.  Outdoor lacrosse and soccer practices are pretty damn chilly. But you know what? I do believe warmth and spring seriously is right around the corner! Who’s going to win the Masters this week?

The importance of “why”

I met RetailTribe CEO Ian James in 2013 at the PGA Merchandise Show. I didn’t know him, but saw him present, introduced myself afterwards, and have worked under him and for RetailTribe ever since.  You may be asking, “Why should I care?”. If you’re a golf professional, or a content marketer or a business owner,…

Weird Storm Night

Heavy rain, crazy wind, limbs coming down, some piece of my house banging on another piece of my house and it’s too dark to see anything (or damage). Tornado watch until 11pm in Bucks County. Be careful out there.  Storms are cool. 63 degrees at 9pm in February 24.  #stormcouch
