Song of the Day: New York City's Killing Me

From his new album, "God Willin' & the Creek Don't Rise" which is just out, here's NH native Ray Lamontagne. Excellent album. Only nine songs, but there's isn't a bad one in the bunch.

Occasional reminder needed?

It's worth actually watching Fonzie jumping the shark on water skis every once in a while to remind you why it spawned a phrase that is symbolic of someone beginning to pick up speed on the other side of their peak.

Any right thinking American should be OUTraged by this. Can we legally prevent a company from doing business? Because the company wrapped up in this should no longer legally be able to operate in the United States of America.

Song of the Day: Jefferson Jericho Blues

No, as a matter of fact it doesn't appear that Tom Petty will ever stop making good music.

This from his recently released album...

Song of the Day: Ghost of Tom Joad

Morello blows it out of the building. Reminded me of Hendrix. I'm not saying he's anywhere near as good as Hendrix, but listen to Morello's solo near the end and see if you don't understand what I'm talking about.

Oh yeah, Sprinsteen and his band play along. This is from the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame's 25th Anniversary Hoo-Ha.

Dispatch from the outpost

Have you ever had ice cream that is at the same time cold and warm? Try the Apple Pie flavor at Smugglers in Dennis. The blend of apples and cinnamon fill your nose with the scent and warmth of a nice slice of warm apple pie from grandma's kitchen counter.* I had it last night in a hot fudge sunday (no whipped cream, but with nuts and a cherry).

Big kudos to Smugglers for making a REASONABLE sized hot fudge sunday; one that can be finished without feeling like Lard Ass from Stand By Me. It's obnoxious how much food is passed of as a serving these days. No wonder we're a fat, jiggling nation.

Since my first vacation here in Dennis four years ago I have been waiting to have their blueberry ice cream. I'm a big fan of blueberries and the ice cream was exquisite. But alas, it was a special that has not returned. I'm not sure it was better than the Blueberry Pie flavor regularly available at Somerset Creamery, but why quibble?

Good solid day at Mayflower Beach today. A big part of a successful day at the beach for me these days is coming home with roughly the same pale skin with which I arrived.

Think we're headed to Chapin's for dinner. Always a solid meal.

A good first full day to a lazy week, beachside.

*I can not remember, ever, a time when either of my parent's mother's made or served me apple pie from their kitchen counter. I have an aunt on my father's side who makes a great apple pie from scratch and I can only assume that she learned it from her mother, my Memere. But I do not remember eating one from my Memere, unfortunately.

Someday I Will
