Killer tunes

When it comes to music, I’m pretty old school. I mean old school. I was “rocking” classical long before I got to rock. By the time I got to college, I had made it through oldies to mellow (Jackson Browne), but it took a few of my college buddies to introduce me to more traditional rock… Read more »

Drawn out exercise

At a very early age, I began drawing. My doodles finally coalesced into something recognizable during my late single digit years and I kept at it for the following few decades. My earliest inspirations came from my two favorite things: comic books and fish. When I began to take myself “seriously”, that is, kept a… Read more »

Sketchy idea

Before my hermit days, a long time ago, I used to do stuff.  Personal stuff.  Food for the soul stuff. I used to go out and meet people.  I used to play team sports.  I used to draw. My Great North American Baseball Road Trip (GNABRT) is going to allow (force?) me to get back a… Read more »

Trees are cool

At last!  It finally got up near 70 so I could come out of hibernation and get back to walking (don’t hate me because I’m warm-blooded)! The area I walk around my development is well-landscaped, but in no way a forest.  Even so, the variety of trees along the way is exceptional. There are many… Read more »

Merry Melodies

When I was little, the cartoons were quite different from today.  Without getting into a debate over which cartoons were “better”, I’ll just say that among my favorites was “Merry Melodies”, which was a Warner Brothers creation. Often, the ‘toons would take a famous song or orchestral work and set the cartoon to the music, with… Read more »

Hitting 500

Today.  Right here. In honor of my 500th blog post, I thought to check out the number 500 in the world around us.  Some interesting things shake out about this fantastic, yet often ignored, milestone. It appears that the number 500 is not beloved by the movie, TV or music fields.  To wit: – Only… Read more »

Tempted by the fruit of another

Trilogy, that is. During this period of indecision of which story idea to jump into next, it’s difficult to resist the temptation to continue the adventures of young Jeremy and his extraordinary sketchbook. It’s not as if I have a tale plotted out.  I know, if I choose to do it, the story will be… Read more »
