About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

Ryan Redux
Thursday, November 17, 2005

I saw Ryan Adams last night, opening for Willie Nelson. I didn't actually stay for Willie, although I know from past experience that he puts on a fine show; I was tired and really just in the mood for Ryan.

The set was too short, and I missed some of the catchier tunes from Cold Roses; of course, with a 50-minute slot, there's only so much he can do. But I thought it was a down-to-business, no-nonsense rocking outing.

Of note, it appears that JP Bowersock is no longer with the Cardinals. There is no official notice that I can find anywhere, but for the past several months, it seems that Neal Cassal has been playing lead guitar with Adams. He sang one song last night, and it was a highlight. He's played with Shannon McNally, a fine little country filly, and he seems well-suited to the Cardinals. The fanboys on the message boards seem pleased, although even they don't know what's up.

Adams's third album of the year is coming out soon, and if it is as good as the first two he will have totally hit for the cycle. I see from the track listing that some of the tunes have already made their way to my greedy ears, either through concert recordings or bootlegs of his numerous studio outtakes. And, oddly enough, Bowersock is on the album, even though it is billed as a solo record as opposed to a Cardinals record. Must have been in the can a while (the album; not Bowersock.)
