Welcome! I'm just another one of your standard music-popular culture-history-nature-animal-science-food-loving children of the 1960's! I'm a born-and-bred Noo Yawkuh. and I work 'in the media.' I love to laugh..and eat. Who doesn't? Amirite?
Essentially, I use my blog to recapture and celebrate the groovy times I grew up in, and a whole lot more. Some might say it's arrested development, but I'm really just a big, mixed-up kid still trying to figure it all out while holding on to my life's passions and developing some new ones along the way.
Above all other things, music is my greatest obsession. I'm a lifelong Beatles fan, an old/new Monkees fan--but mostly of Michael Nesmith--and of his fabulous music . But what's consumed practically every fiber of my being for the last several months are The Byrds and the incredible scene and sound they spearheaded in 1960s L.A. It's that amazing amalgamation of pop, folk, psych, rock and country that just lights my soul. It doesn't hurt that they were one of the coolest, hottest looking collection of musicians of their time either. I love all of the bands that issued from them and several of their contemporaries too. Practically every one of them were connected somehow. Ah..I could go on and on!
Oh, one last thing.. Just so you know, every seventh day around here is Caturday!! Kitties! Woo! You have been warned :D
