"It's Called Religion, but it's got nothing at all to do with God"

Thanks for watching.

I am sincerely happy that 12 Years a Slave won BP, AND....

I am over the moon that Alphonso Cuaron won Best Director for GRAVITY. The man is a truly an auteur. With Y Tu Mama Tambien, The Little Princess, and Children of Men, I knew he was one to watch. He also turned the Harry Potter series on its ear when he directed the third movie and set the tone for all the subsequent films.

I wrote and recorded this in less than 2 days. Please give it a listen. Thanks.

It's a short graphic novel set to music. It's obvious what it's about, given the refrain. If you like it, please give it a push and a shove. Thanks for listening.


Last Chance at Sundown

The evening came, the sun was glistening
and you were there and no one was listening
it finally gave, I hate to tell you
and no one could see the rage inside you

for days and days you'd go on and on
about how some no-account-something had done you wrong
and sooner or later, you're gonna go down town

and stand your ground......and stand your ground......

Mike on the Mic.

Seriously.....Christie's claim is that Wildstein had cooties in HS.

that's his defense. This doesn't add to the discourse, but I just had to put that out there. sorry.

methinks steve k is a STAR now.

for breaking the hoboken story.

UHM. OH SNAP! Christie just blew up. MSNBC. DETAILS...

just saw. Wildstein has evidence christie knew. sorry for being vague..this had JUST come in.

Actually I am not kidding. the mug shot should be his next album cover.

if he makes it out of these two brushes with the law and gets some help, it would probably rehabilitate him in the eyes of his fans.

Dave Madden (Reuben Kincaid in THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY) died.


There is something seriously wrong when we can call a 12YO a "gunman...."

......without batting an eye.

Teacher credited with disarming 12-year-old gunman at New Mexico school


A 12-year-old student opened fire at a New Mexico middle school Tuesday, injuring two classmates, one critically, before a teacher talked him into dropping his weapon, authorities said.

The shooting in the school’s gym erupted at 8:11 a.m. as students were dropped off to begin the day at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell. It was not immediately clear what provoked the shooting.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez said late Tuesday that a 12-year-old boy wounded in the shooting underwent two surgeries. A 12-year-old girl who was also wounded is now in stable condition, the governor said. A staff member who was also injured refused medical attention, police said.

Martinez said the boy pointed the gun at a teacher, who talked him into dropping the weapon. The boy was taken into custody.

"I am asking that all New Mexicans please keep these two children in your prayers," an emotional Martinez said at an afternoon press conference. "We have a 12-year-old and a 13-year-old who were shot while simply sitting in their gym while waiting to go to class."

The shooter, whom authorities identified as a 12-year-old seventh-grader armed with a shotgun, was taken into custody after he was confronted by a staff member and an off-duty police officer who was dropping off his child at the school, police said.
