Happy birthday - Dweezil Zappa!

The first rule of blogging is – never write in the browser. Yes, verily, even in 217 the fricken thing will crash and zap all you lovely textual textifications. 


Anyway, being of a positive mindset, Trey directed us to a…

Story of the Song – I Can't Bleed

All the people you love leave a little bit of themselves – or a lotta bit of themselves – in you. For the good and the bad. But when it's been all good and you're struggling to move on, what…

Story of the Song – In The Morning

James Joyce wrote about Ireland from the comfortable distance of France. Similarly, I usually write about the good side of lovin' when am single.

A man asks a fish, "What's it like breathing water all the time?". The fish says, "What's water?"

There's something elating and sickening about Bob Dylan's oeuvre, his egg that truly roqued for two decades – slapping every other…

Roamin' Hands & Russian Fingers

Here's a quick one, stringing from the Groniad. A Russian site of guitar lessons.



If you want to improve your guitar playing, there's only your hours put into the woodshed to stop you. After all, if it's good enough for…
