Lou Reed

March 2, 1942 – October 27, 2013
Just a couple of weeks ago Lou did a photo session intended to become a print ad for his friend Henri Seydoux's French audio headphones company Parrot. The renowned photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino took the shots, and this was the very last shot he took. Always a tower of strength. - Tom Sarig

Current challenge: Convincing customers that cheap Websites = crap

Excerpts from two articles I posted on Facebook today (sorry, didn't keep track of the links):

Maybe the developer that would charge $100 sees the request as a simple one that deserves a solution that, at a minimum, qualifies as a ‘simple website’. He’ll scratch together 15 minutes of time and have a few html files ready to deliver the client. Done.


Many Web hosting companies offer free template-driven tools that allow you to select a boilerplate design and customize it with your text and photos. You can easily customize a homepage, and a page that describes your offerings or products. These template designs are extremely limited in what you can do with them, but they do provide a quick and inexpensive way for a small business to develop a Web presence.

The downside of using a template design tool is that it is the online version of using clip art. Many savvy Web surfers will recognize your site as a cheap template presence, with that knowledge clouding their attitude toward your company. Template design tools are often included in Web hosting packages that typically cost $250 to $500 each year, including a number of email addresses.


Trouble is, price shopping still rules in certain segments of business and as Jeffrey Gitomer once wrote "Cheap bastards are also a pain in the ass."

Lou as guitar hero with the late Bob Quine, a 17 minute "Some Kinda Love / Sister Ray" from the 80s

Also on the "Live In Italy" album. Quine got Lou off of his ass and back to the point where the music mattered again.

We who have so much more than any one man does need, and you who don't have anything at all



We who have so much to you who have so little
To you who don't have anything at all
We who have so much more than any one man does need
And you who don't have anything at all

Does anybody need another million dollar movie
Does anybody need another million dollar star
Does anybody need to be told over and over
Spitting in the wind comes back at you twice as hard

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to Hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, strawman, strawman, strawman, yes

Does anyone really need a billion dollar rocket
Does anyone need a 60,000 dollars car
Does anyone need another president
Or the sins of swaggart parts 6, 7, 8 and 9

Does anyone need yet another politician
Caught with his pants down and money sticking in his hole
Does anyone need another racist preacher
Spittin' in the wind can only do you harm

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to Hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, strawman, strawman, strawman

Does anyone need another faulty shuttle
Blasting off to the moon, Venus or Mars
Does anybody need another self-righteous rock singer
Whose nose he said has led him straight to God

Does anyone need yet another blank skyscraper
If you're like me, I'm sure a minor miracle will do
A flaming sword or maybe a gold ark floating up the Hudson
When you spit in the wind it comes right back at you

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to Hell
Strawman, going to the devil
Strawman, strawman, strawman, hell me up, ah
Strawman, strawman

MSNBC, Fox News, CNN...guess which one is the ONLY one to mention Lou Reed on their home page?

Who Said It: Kanye West Or An Instruction Manual For The Cuisinart CRC-400 Electric Rice Cooker?

Who Said It: Kanye West Or An Instruction Manual For The Cuisinart CRC-400 Electric Rice Cooker?



“Place rice in cooking bowl and add liquid to appropriate line marking.” Who said it?

“Cover the cooking bowl with lid. Make sure the steam vent is facing toward the back of the unit.” Who said it?

YAY! Photobucket let me reset my Amerigo Vespucci account! Food porn pics are safe and sound.

Sent a request with everything I could remember about my account. They just sent me an email that allowed me to reset my password. YAY!













And once again, I must ask "What if this were said to George W. Bush?"

The Durbin thing.

"I cannot even stand to look at you?"

Would any Democrat have gotten away with this in the Bush-Cheney Presidency?
