I totally met Michael Nesmith and I didn't pass out

Posted by Anna Borg on May 17, 2013 at 10:29pm 7 Comments

So Mike Nesmith. Yeah. WTF, right? Private, reclusive, mysterious for many years. A couple of years back, he got on Facebook and he posts long, winding tales about himself, his dogs, his home, his past, and a really lovely Mother's Day post last weekend. Photos go up. The whole thing. It's like he disappeared and then came back on his own terms. I didn't know how to take it. I'm a huge Monkees fan, no doubt. And, being a woman/girl of a certain age, I have a favorite and that favorite is Mike. It's this weird mix of hormonal stew, sense memories from being a kid, familiarity with his music, and nostalgia for a time before I was even born. I also liked his droll take on the wacky humor the Monkees had to portray on the show/in the movie.

Long intro over.

Davy Jones passed away suddenly last year. I was kicking myself that I didn't go to the show with Mickey, Peter, Davy mere months before. I consoled myself with the records.

And then: the announcement that Mike…

I love motorcycles

Posted by Theodore Knapinsky on March 26, 2013 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

I love motorcycles There, I said it. When I graduate college in a couple of months, I promised myself two things: I promised my mother that I would get a bigger flat (apartment) and for myself, a motorcycle. That’s right, you heard correct a motorcycle. Ever since I was a teenager and I watched Easy Rider on VHS, DVD was not around at that time, motorcycles have always had a powerful influence over me.

The Outlaw biker has played a mythical role in American Folklore. He has been romanticized in books and novels as well as idealized in movies such as The Wild One and Easy Rider and documented in the paintings by the late artist Dave Mann. The outlaw biker is a symbol of American freedom and hippie ideals of the counterculture movement of this country. A modern day cowboy , a two-faced individual giving…

A review of The Allman Brothers Band -One Way Out-

This is one of the finest books that I have read in a long time. This book is fascinating and doesn’t let up.

Johnny Cash - The Sun Years -1954-1958

When the barriers that separated pop and country music began to crumble in the wake of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash was one the first young country artists to take a place in the pop charts. Ironically, as hillbilly music slicked itself up in search of a wider market. Johnny Cash, broke through with a sound that was so sparse and under -produced that it must have seemed anachronistic even to the more conservative elements of the Nashville establishments. Johnny Cash was born in the remote rural…See More
