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.

Whipping Post Yo! (And check some of this)

The lights go down and the energy in the room is palpable as the band takes the stage; the drummers start pounding out a jaunty beat as the rest of the players get comfortable and tweak their tuning. The beat is insistent enough that you know it is going to stay there and become the song. The guitarists join in, Warren plays some nice blues lines, Derek adds some slide, and like sittin’ on a porch, it is the shuffle jam that now introduces “Done Somebody Wrong.” The song kicks in, Derek tarts up the riff, Gregg plays a nice vamp over some wavy Derek slide… On “Come and Go Blues” Derek and Warren play solos that are nice and tight; their straightforward reads making the song seem BIG, and a nice, rewarding take.

On “Don’t Want You No More” Derek does that slow snaky thing of his that changes the blues into jazz, then Warren takes another tight, strong if low-risk solo. Then out of the ashes of the song, “Wasted Words.” Oteil is the rubber band man. On the outro Derek plays white hot slide that bubbles up out of the song; then Warren pushes it into the red zone for the first time this evening, a hot trippy blues that tickles your poor pitiful heart. Then Derek lays on some prolonged intensity into a nice crunchy close.
