Gone Baby Gone

This movie will surprise you. I was very impressed with both of the Affleck brothers - Ben in directing and Casey in the lead role.

Seven days of falling

I would basically echo everything Mike said about the tragic passing of the irreplaceable Esbjorn Svensson.

Mike and I saw the Esbjorn Svensson Trio at Blues Alley in early 2006 and I was blown away by their music and equally as struck by their humility and demeanor. I’m disappointed that I’ll never see Svensson again live, [...]

Asleep at the wheel

“You wake up at Seatac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O’Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time. You wake up at Air Harbor International. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, [...]

What if?

I’m at home over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, spending time with my dog and my family. It’s been a reflective few days, saturated in malaise and thought but not much sleep.
