Whelp, this year I’m sitting St. Patrick’s day out. Monday isn’t exactly the best day of the week to get rip roaring drunk and we’re planning on heading back to Desiderio’s tomorrow for a long-awaited return. After the six-hour marathon last year at the Hidden Shamrock promoting Clean Up After Me, I’m Irish (which you can still buy from the link on this site, hint hint), I could use a quiet St. Patrick’s. At any rate, the new issue of Night Life is out today with a Big Words installment of ‘The Joy Of Banana Bread’, an ode to food that I wrote a few years back from Zany Hijinx. Grab a copy while you can!

Here it is Monday again and a new issue of Night Life is upon us. This week, I dug up ‘The Formaldehyde Tribe’ (from Zany Hijinx), an essay that questions the notion that it’s better to burn out than fade away and looks at some of the over-rated artists, musicians and writer’s who gained popularity because they died young instead of any degree of talent.
There’s also a new issue of Acid Logic up online for this month featuring ‘Creationism And The Quick Bang’, a foray into the evolution of the creative process. Right now I don’t have much of any creative process to speak of, but if you want to check it out, click on over to:
I also spent last Thursday reviewing the Blue Lantern Lounge out in Elma for Gusto, so keep an eye out for that in the Buffalo News. We had a truly unique evening in a swank atmosphere with some top notch rockabilly music from Wild One. You can read all about it some time early in April. That’s all I’ve got for you this week, so I’ll talk to you all next Monday. Thanks,
With no apparent end to this brutal and painful writer’s block, I had to comb through the archives again for March’s litany of Big Words columns. This week, we’re travelling way back through time to 1998 with ‘How To Be A Slob’, a goofy look from my college years at the art of, well, being a slob. Pick it up this week in your free copy of Night Life magazine!
