If you’ve ever listened to even one of the nine innings of a New York Yankees radio broadcast, then chances are that little nugget of brilliance has made its way past your eardrums and into your brain. The oft-repeated line, courtesy of the golden throat of …

Deleted Scenes: One Of Our Own – In Memory Of James Rensenbrink

There will be more tributes next week from those who knew him and worked with him—which I cannot and will not say I ever did—but as that comes together, it would be neglect on our part not to immediately note and mourn the passing of The Aquarian founder James Rensenbrink, …

Deleted Scenes: Monkey Hands

Stop me if I’ve told you this before, but there’s a tiny monkey that lives inside my head. In the spot where most people have a brain, I have a very small monkey. He wears a tiny little hat (why not?) and has big oversized hands. Not huge—they still have …

In Memory Of Lou Reed: 1942-2013

He was an avatar of cool, who set a standard that an entire generation within New York and without it tried and more often than not failed to match. Lewis Allan Reed could be as understated musically as the three letters of the single-syllable he went by for decades—Lou—but the …

Deleted Scenes: An Open Letter

Deleted Scenes: Think First

My wife and I were in the process of making dinner. Not a fancy meal: Some baked potatoes, a couple sausages (veggie for her, chicken for me). Pretty standard. To give you some idea, the potatoes were a treat.

By way of a tradeoff, I said I’d wash if she’d …
