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.

My Photo
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.

Come to Our Party
Friday, April 28, 2006
I see as of my current visit that we've had 4,966 guests here at APW. And if you think in terms of unique guests, we're probably talking, 25, 26 different people.

When we hit 5,000, we're having a party right here, and you're invited. There'll be bagels, lox, whitefish, and orange soda in little plastic cups. It'll be just like a briss, but less emasculating.

Make that 27.

I got here by way of the ABB listserve somehow, after getting hooked on your show reviews, and now check here often as well as Annie's day, via APW. Your Missus?

I really like both of your writing styles and find your stories very entertaining. What that says about me and my so called life (or lack thereof), reading about other's everyday lives, I'm not quite sure.

I do enjoy the writing though. (Yours and Annie's, that is)

Write on!!
(is that little pun getting overused these days or is it just me? I had to use it at least once though. Now I did. Ahh, that feels better)

Hey Jeff. Thanks for visiting. Hopefully there'll be more music here soon. I really appreciate your comment about the writing, more than you know.

Annie is an old pal from High School, with whom I recent;y connected via the Internet. The actual missus, I can't get to read the damn blog.

Hi Jeff.

He forgot to mention that I'm single and incredibly charming.

Thanks for enjoying my blog too.

Hey Josh, shouldn't you be at an oneg shabbat around now?

Annie, you forgot about the time zone difference.

PS: God was there too.

Hello Annie,

Well, your incredible charm comes through loud and clear in your writing.

As for me, I'm incredibly un-single. (Does that make me plural?)

I've probably tempted my missus to daydream about singularity, (not the phone company), by me dragging her endlessly around the country to see those damn Allman boys and their extended family bands. She's a sport though, and has for the most part, come on board with my musical insanity.

P.S. I just love NYC. It's my favorite city. I only ever get their in March though, for Beacon time, and it's never warmer that 60 or so. I really want to get their in the warmer months, sans coats, gloves and other such paraphernalia. So many restaurants and points of interest, so little time. Whenever I go there, I always think, "There just aren't enough meals in the day to try all the places I'd like to." But then again, it leaves things to encounter the next time around.

oh, and btw.....I really do know the difference between there, their and they're. Too quickie on the clicky.

Jeff, Come to NY this summer when I will be living in town. Bring your missus. We will ask Josh to take all 3 of us to dinner.

Josh--I was so thrilled to remember the phrase "oneg shabbat" that I forgot about the time difference.

Would you two lik to be alone?

Annie: in LA they don't call it Oneg Shabbat. They call it "a little nosh."

Well, next time I'm in the big city, I will definitely try to look you guys up. Dinner would be fun. I'm sure we'd all have a blast.

Wait. I'm Jewish, and always thought that an Oneg Shabbat was this thing we did at camp on Saturday mornings while acting out morality plays

Then I remembered that it's what happens after Morning Services at a Bar Mitzvah

Oy! I think that I need to begin to go to services.

Like most things Jewish, Oneg Shabbat involves a nosh.

Actually I don't really know what it is. But there was pastry.

Now, I was thinking Oneg Shabbat was pastry and coffee served in the synagogue after Friday night services every week, generally sponsored by the Sisterhood, but if your kid is getting bar or bat mitzvah'ed or having a naming ceremony that evening you bring in a few extra noshes or actually have a little catered Chazzerai.

There is always pastry. There must be pastry. Hey, we're the folks who hand out candy apples at New Year's. Sweetness is IMPORTANT.

Yes, I do believe that is the correct definition, precisely.
