  1. Since I wrote this, I've slowly gotten into wearing a wrist watch. In fact, I like it very much now. I have a small "collection" of old (worthless for collectors of time pieces) watches, a couple that my late father wore, a couple that I was given as presents over the decades, nothing amazing. I must say that Seiko 5 is a damn good, accurate and reliable watch. My almost 40 y.o. daily beater needed an overhaul. I can't believe I'm spending $400 to service a watch that cost me $30, but I like the watch, so I've agreed to have it completely taken apart, cleaned, lubed, new crystal and new gaskets installed.
  2. Bought me a Louis Armstrong set. It should be remarkable!
  3. He’s going to be at the Litchfield Jazz Festival with Houston Person (another favorite) this Saturday. I’m rather sad I won’t be able to attend because of prior commitment. That’s a hell of a group!
  4. Thanks for your big heart!. Charity is one of the signature traits of New Englanders that I’ve come to appreciate in my 18 years here.
  5. One of my few living favorite musicians, Mr.Peplowski is in a bit of a bind due to cancer. Those who've been following his Thursday night jam sessions on FB, are aware of his recent struggles. https://www.gofundme.com/f/6sw88q-ken-peplowski?utm_campaign=p_na+share-sheet&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook

  7. Well done, gentlemen! Collectively you've got them all solved, save for the SIX (will be a tough nut to crack. Hint - the players are all American), and the SEVEN has proven to be a sleeper. I thought EIGHT would be a gotcha, but Sangrey made it out fast. Only one of you got the THREE right...surprisingly.

  9. Alice Cooper - KILLER On 1971 wafer-thin vinyl. Sounds the way it was intended. Halo of Flies. Dead Babies. How appropriate…….
  10. How's this? It's on every new vinyl releases page in the world. What a nice record! This is from the collection I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. Howard McGhee is such a gem on this album.
  11. Do you by chance wear a fedora that you skillfully throw on the antler wall hook with your right hand, while holding a glass of Tom Collins and a smoldering Lucky Strike in your left?
  12. FB page dedicated to Slug's / Slugs. https://www.facebook.com/slugssaloon/
  13. 3.5 gram vtf is nothing terrible. If you're buying 1950s-1960s records, many, if not most of them were tracked by much heavier cartridges, and are still well-listenable.
