Wow. I can't believe we are only (4) days from 2008. The year has gone by way too quickly for this blogger. Some of my year end highlights / memories include: celebrating my 28th birthday in Boston, an amazing trip to the Langerado festival in early March, owning Mountain Jam, boating on the LI Sound, 3 days @ the Gathering of the Vibes, meeting new people to get down with, backstage @ Farm Aid, watching all the acts @ the NY Comedy Festival, spending time with my family, Thanksgiving dinner with friends, traveling to crazy locations, starting a blog & generally just getting after it.

Where does the time go?

Who Doesn't like Nude Victorias Secret Models?


Thats what i thought...



Today is Thursday and our Editor in Chief is just getting over a nasty stomach bug. The reason why we NEED to get better asap is quite simple : The WORD

The band is comprised of Cody & Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars) John Medeski & Robert Randolph, all of whom are set to kick off their special 5 night tour of the North East tonight at Terminal 5 in NYC. I for one have never heard any of the music they have put out, but when you group talent such as these amazing musicians - only great things can come of it.

Its Been a While


Editors Note: Sorry for the non posts over the past week... Gonna step it up from here on out.

It's Friday folks & the city is abuzz right now with people running around doing last minute holiday shopping. I got lucky yesterday, nailing all my gifts in one swoop. Nice. Last night I went out to a dinner with my family, celebrating my sisters triumphant return to the east coast. (Eliza - don't you like out here??)

Since my last post, I've been running all over Manhattan / Harlem on site checks for an event - where a bunch of highschool basketball players design their own Team Nike shoes & get to sport em' during the remainder of the season. Around 9ish tonight - once the work is over - I'll be looking to get up with some good people for a last throwdown in NYC before the holidaze hits.

A Friday Post

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I have been reading all the news today on the MLB / Mitchell steroid report. I don't really know what to make of it, but what really sucks is that the (2) people named in the report, Roger Clemens & Barry Bonds, hold some of baseballs most prestigious records. You still have vote them into the Hall of fame - imo. How can anyone determine what effect the drugs had on their overall performance? How can anyone say Roger Clemens should have 280 wins instead of 350? Or Barry Bonds should have 300 homers less? You cant.

Overall, MLB has to be breathing a big sigh of relief. When only (4) big names are outed, instead of the 80 big named players previously rumored to be in the report, they got lucky.

It is Friday folks. Here are a few nice Phish tracks to kick off the weekend.

A Few Days Late....But Right On Time

Nice. I just got back into to NYC as of 2:30 PM EST. Couldn't be more stoked. It was a great trip, culminating with a few days the beach reading an awesome book (The Road - by Cormac Mcarthy.) I'm fired up for this weekend. Lets get er' done peoples.

While I was kicking back in Floridaze, the rest of the music loving world it seems had their eyes & ears pointed towards the triumphant return of Led Zeppelin. What a way to start a rock show....Good Times Bad Times!?? "In the days of my youth I was told what it means to be a man." Talk about giving the fans what they want!

The setlist is below & I think one word about sums it up - WoW

Miami Monday

I'm still here. Definitely itching to get home, as being away from friends and family are beginning to take a toll on the kid. That being said, Flordidaze is not a bad place to be when away. I am hopping on a Wednesday flight and will be back in the NYC around 6:30 PM. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon. In the interim, a few tracks a day (and some sun) keeps the frowns away

Art Basel is Cool

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Before I started working on this Nike event, I had never heard of the Art Basel festival. Apparently its been going for 5 years in different sections of Miami & attracts jet setting art lovers from all over the world. After I finished up with work around six today, I met a friend whose sister works for an art museum and we went to the "Photo Miami" exhibition in downtown Miami. It was definitely worthwhile, as I got to see some amazing photography being displayed. After that we went to another event which was had a crazy, maze like, art installation. The crowd milling about was "eccentric" to say the least..... We stayed for drink, then I headed back to the hotel. Not bad for a Tuesday evening.

Grounded.....for Now

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So as of 8:13 pm central time, I am currently sitting on the tarmac at Chicago's midway airport due to heavy rain & sleet. I left Portland a day early thinking I could beat a storm that was supposed to hit on Sunday, only to be met by nasty weather in the windy city (shocker). The only thing that is keeping me from pulling my hair out is the notion that we will eventually take off - and I will be in Ft Lauderdale sometime tonight. If / when I get there, I plan on cruising down towards the beach, finding a cheap motel and passing the funk out. The real payoff will be waking up to warm sunshine and a nice beach vibe that good ol' Floridaze always provides.

Do You Even Like MUSIC?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So I have a few friends out there who just don't seem to get the new music that is coming out today. They would rather listen to the same classic rock songs on repeat than give bands like Interpol, Iron & Wine or Arcade Fire a shot. For myself, I learned a long time ago that in order to truly enjoy music, I had to be open to all different forms of it. I don't care if its Kelly Clarkson or the Kings of Leon singing, if the song rocks, then I roll. It's really as simple as that. Now, I understand people have different tastes, and that is each his own. But as George Clinton put it best. "Free your mind and you arse will follow".

Here's some tracks from some "newer" bands that I enjoy, which upon a listen, I think you will too.

Futures & Folley's - Blitzen Trapper
Lake Michigan - Rogue Wave
Neigborhood # 2 - Arcade Fire

Two For Tuesday

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So much to do - so little time. I'm leaving for a 2 1/2 week cross-country trip tommorrow, starting with a flight into Chicago at 6AM > a flight to Portland Oregon. Once there, I'm going to the Nike compound to assist on a few different events. I'm definitely excited, as I'm sure the grounds are going to be ridiculous and I'll also be able to get my holiday shopping done. After four days on the leftest coast, I fly Sunday AM down to good ol' Miami Floridaze for a week long work event. How the heck am supposed to pack for this thing??

In the spirit of all things travel, below are a few clips that embody the long road.

Mule Monday

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I had I had a good weekend. From the awesome turkey dinner shared with friends, to attending my 10 year high school reunion - everything was peachy keen. As one would assume, the holiday was chock full of clean berations, multiple batties, dance parties, & lots of The Dogg & Bigg Man doing "their thing". Unfortunately for those of us who bleed blue & red, things came crashing back to Earth when the NY Giants delivered one of the most miserable performances I have ever witnessed on a Sunday afternoon. Eli the franchise? Kid better get it together vs da Bears.

All in all, good time - great oldies. Now enjoy some Monday Mule. Do it

Tegan & Sara @ Webster Hall

Lets just say I was in the minority on Monday night when I attended the uber talented, sister duo Tegan & Sara. Judging by the all female line stretching down my block, I figured the sisters are kinda like the updated version of the Indigo girls (insert joke here)These chicks hail from somewhere Canada and have been creating a buzz with their stripped down punkish jamz. I've posted below a couple tracks that they rocked at the show.

I start a new job today, & by start I mean I'm flying down Miami to do a walk-though for a Nike event @ the Art Basel Fest Dec 5-9th. There's always an nice vibe stepping off the plane and feeling that 80 degree weather hit your face. Today is also supposed to be the day the guys from Langerado announce their 08' lineup. In honor of all these happening below are a few tracks that remind me of good ol' FloriDaze.

Denis Leary is an "Asshole" and We Love Em

Denis Leary has been called a "chain-smoking, acid-tongued comedian", who is famously known for his angry filled stand-up routines. At last night's headlining Beacon Theatre performance, he did not disappoint. Now I've probably seen 50+ show at the Beacon, and never have I been backstage (Warren - can a brother get some love?) Last night however, I got to serve as the house photographer and was allowed roam all over the joint.

The whole thing was full of angry-man” tirades on the the evils of society (crack ,Heather Mills & Starbucks) mixed with punchy one-liners. He also had a bunch of other comedians perform who were equally as righteous. Denis closed out the show with is band the Crown Royals doing his famous "Asshole" song. It was nice

Tonight is Artie Lang. I may have to skip it cause I'm a weeeee bit comedy'ed out. ooof

Sarah Silverman is Hot and Funny

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I love Sarah Silverman. Its really as simple as that. Her performance last night @ Carnegie Hall was ridiculosuly over the top with a slew of her x rated / ironic material taking center stage. "You know, I don't care if you think I'm racist. I just want you to think I'm thin."...."I was licking jelly off of my boyfriend's penis and all of a sudden I'm thinking, "Oh My God, I'm turning into my mother!"

NY Comedy Festival Kicks Off

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Yesterday marked the begnning of the New York Comedy Festival. This is something I have personally been working on since March, so I was extremely excited to see things get underway. Last night Rosie O'Donnell performed at Linclon Center. I've never was a big Rosie fan, but I will say I am now a convert. She joked on range of things including her kids, lesbian following & of course some George Bush ribbing..." I mean what do you have to do to get impeached these days.....maybe just shit on the constitution...literally bend over and..." To everyone surprise she called out Rosanne Barr to do a set which was just plain raunchy. This woman actually has the foulest mouth I have ever heard. Every other word was fuck . wow

Anyway, nice way to start things off. Tonight is Sarah Silverman at Carnegie Hall. Denis Leary tommorrow at the Beacon Theatre, Artie Lang on Friday at Town Hall, Bill Maher on Saturday at the Beacon. NICE
