Let's get reallll sad
Many thanks to free for an awesome turn at the tables. Happy to have you, good sir.
The solstice was yesterday. It's officially summer. Every day will be shorter from here. Good luck with that!
Aww man, A Ghost Is Born came out 10 years ago? Really?
I think the last show I saw at First Avenue in 2013 was Black Joe Lewis, but I could be forgetting one. He's got a pretty fantastic red guitar.
I saw Laurie Anderson three years ago at the Kimo Theater in Albuquerque, NM. She puts on one hell of a show. Here she is with WGOM favorite Colin Stetson on Dave.
High School weeks comes to an abrupt end.
At the end of high school I started a summer "love" with a girl heading to NYU. It was one of those, "wait you thought I was good looking all this time? I thought you were a babe the past four years!" things that only comes in the summer after high school. Rather than trying to force it with me in Buffalo and her in New York we ended it before it we ruined out friendship. We would trade e-mails back and forth and on a Tuesday morning in September she sent me an e-mail saying how great things were going and how I should come and see her. A paragraph or so later she said that she heard some loud noises and that something was going on outside. She said she would e-mail me back later. The time stamp was 9:01AM on September 11th, 2001. A few days later she got back to me. She said words can never describe what it was like so I never asked. I figured it was the kind of thing that made you grow up too fast. She transferred the next semester.
Feel free to share your stories from ten years ago in the LTEs.
Per request from our pal, Mags.
This kid was born in 1986. Today, we can all feel old. Thanks a lot, Mags.
The music department here at the WGOM would like to once again wish jobu and peckish jane on the successful delivery of Famished Pete to their family. I'd like to think this as a song read to an infant.
Then again, it might be a little heavy for a little dude.
