Catching Up

Okay, I realize I haven't posted anything in a while. This is largely because of two things:
1) The Red Sox kicking the Yankees' butts after the Yanks had a 3 game lead
2) The election.

Frankly, I don't have much to say about either. The Yankees catastrophic collapse was just too depressing to talk about here, and the subsequent World Series was a drag. The Cardinals sucked and the Red Sox finally won. No whining, no excuses...well done, Boston.

As for #2, I don't have much to say about that either. Well, I guess I do, but I don't have any interest in running yet another political blog. Most political blogs are written by either hardcore Dems or hardcore Repubs, and I don't really fit into either. Even when they're well-written, I find major holes in both persuasion's thinking. Okay, I guess I could write from the disaffected center, who think a) Bush is a crummy President and b) Kerry was a crummy candidate, but it's just not as exciting as reading some wild-eyed ideologue's rants.

In other news...finally picked up Brian Wilson's "SMiLE" and despite my skepticism, I like it quite a bit. Yeah, I wish those harmonies were by Carl, Dennis, Al & Mike (hell, even Bruce Johnston), but what can you do, it's simply not possible. Musically, I thought Wilson & co. have done a great job maintaining the musical fabric of those '66-'67 recordings. Despite Brian's voice being pretty shot, it feels of a piece with the older stuff and really works. It's definitely a must for fans of Brian, the Beach Boys or just great weirdo rock in general. I'm glad the finished product is something for Brian to be proud of, not something you have to excuse or hold your fingers in front of your face when you see on the shelf.

And I can't get Bill Cosby's "Chicken Heart" routine out of my head. HE'S ON YOUR STREET!
