Playlist for the Trump administration

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
In a town of cronyism, Donald Trump really is the "New Kid In Town".
During campaigns politicians have songs that they think relate to them. They play them at all their rally’s and their conventions. Why not have songs that describe the new Presidency? Here are some tunes for the new President: In spite of the snarkiness of these songs, I really so want things to go well for... Read more »

From "When I'm 64" to Medicare

From "When I'm 64" to Medicare
I was born in 1952. The olden days. Back to the time when kids walked two miles to school in a blizzard and were happy to do it. Back in the days when people made distinctions about owning a black & white or color television…if they even owned one at all. Okay…okay…we get it. You’re... Read more »

A personal look at 2016: Goodbye and don't come back

The year started with the death of David Bowie. It was shocking until we found out he had been fighting Cancer for 18 months. It was the start of the year of death for musicians. Frey, Prince, Russell, Haggard, Cohen among the many.
It’s the final day of 2016. That marks the end of the fourth calendar year of this blog. FOUR YEARS!!! Wow…is it like college where I get a piece of paper and have to leave? I started writing this as a way to tell stories about my life with Parkinson’s Disease. I figured there were... Read more »

John Lennon, Mick Jagger and the circle of life

John Lennon, Mick Jagger and the circle of life
December 8th. It’s always a tough day. You can’t help but think and maybe obsess about John Lennon on this day. It’s the anniversary of his assassination and I tend to do the latter. I usually spend some…okay a lot…okay okay all of it listening to Beatles music. I know, not a lot different than... Read more »

My seven step program for getting over the election

1. Ice cream. I did say I've been eating a lot of junk but comfort food is good. Moderation is the key. I'm working on that.
I’m Down. I’m really down. I’m down. Down on the ground. How can you laugh when you know I’m down? How can you laugh? I’ve had a tough week. I admit I’m not handling the election results well. I took it very personally. I may be understating that. I’m handling the results bad…really bad…really fucking... Read more »

Why The Beatles Mean So Much To Me

Why The Beatles Mean So Much To Me
Hey kids! It’s Blogapolooz night. What?! You’re thinking didn’t you just do one yesterday? Well yeah, we did but this is the night time version. Just think of it like The Price Is Right, where they have a day and night show. They still do that don’t they? Anyway…tonight’s topic isĀ “Pick a song (or songs)... Read more »

Trump, Clinton, The Biased Media and Us: Songs For A Crazy Election

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Hard to believe but in about two weeks either Clinton or Trump will be "Elected".
Maybe we can vote Alice Cooper in instead?
Nineteen days left. Only nineteen crazy days. Doesn’t matter what side you’re supporting, this election cycle is driving you a little crazy. Okay…more than a little crazy. For more than a year, something strange happens every day. As much as you try, you can’t avoid it. This morning my blogger bud MBA Mom sent me... Read more »

On the 50th anniversary of Revolver: The Beatles albums ranked from worst to best

13. Yellow Submarine.
The soundtrack to the movie has some good songs, including the title track, but it's mostly filler.
Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the release of The Beatles album Revolver. Whenever a classic album or song hits a milestone, you can find lots of lists rating the recording against other albums or songs. On most lists of Beatles albums, Revolver comes in very high; sometimes in the first or second spot. I... Read more »

Music 2016: Six months of death and destruction

Frank Sinatra Jr. 
The son of old blue eyes died of a heart attack on March 16.
We’re a couple of weeks past the halfway point of the year. If it seems that there has been a lot of legends of the music world checking out permanently, you’d be right. I usually do a death in music blog every year. There’s been enough dying that we can do a post at now... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
