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.

Brian Eno discovered Canadian producer Daniel Lanois in a studio in Hamilton, Ontario in the early '80s, and invited him to co-produce U2's 1984 release, The Unforgettable Fire. So began one of the most distinctive and auspicious production runs in rock history; from 1986 through 1989 Lanois produced, in succession, 6 classic records that all feature his distinct sound: Peter Gabriel's So (1986); U2's The Joshua Tree (1987; with Eno); 1987's self-titled solo debut from Robbie Robertson; his own Acadie (1989); the Neville Brothers' Yellow Moon (1989); and Dylan's Oh Mercy (1989).  Each one of these records features his signature sound-- a gauzy, pulsating, watery shimmer with French whispers underneath.

By the end of this run, he was one of my favorite producers, and one of my favorite musicians.
