19 Reasons For The Doctor

Day 45: 19 – “19 Reasons why you love your favorite TV show.” I could not decide if I should write about The Office or Doctor Who. In the end, I choose Doctor Who because I could rewrite what I liked about The Doctor. I have stopped watching since he turned into a woman. Before […]

A is for Amazing

I have decided to try some writing prompts to start writing creative stories again. I have several books on prompts, which was a problem for me. I cannot pick out a box of cereal in under thirty minutes so I definitely could not choose a book to spend a year with under a week. I […]

The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady from Charles Mingus is jazz. Avant-garde jazz! I will not mess around. I hated it so much. I wanted to run out of the house screaming murder. I felt like I was Janet Leigh in Psycho and Anthony Perkins was plunging me with his knife over and over […]

I am hoping this is the last jazz album for a while. Dave Brubeck Quartet is the essence of cool jazz and Time Out is filled with seven cool tunes to close out the 50s era of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. I do not have a lot to say about this […]

Miles Davis again. There are a few artist who will be on this list a few times. Davis’ second entry Kind of Blue is very different than his first one Birth of the Cool. I do not think of the colour blue as depressing as most people do. When I think of blue, I think of the water, the sky, and you. When Davis thinks of blue he is […]

Growing up in the 80s Prince was one of the magical three or four pop superstars. They ruled the airwaves and MTV. Prince was a musical genius and as androgynous as many other 80s singers. But there is one who is the precursor to Prince. Little Richard is as flamboyant as Prince, but not quite as […]

I grew up around jazz music. I love hearing jazz in films, on street corners (not in the prostitute sense of street corner, but just the regular guy walking down the Bourbon Street corner) and in nightclubs. Sitting down on a chair and playing jazz on Spotify is not something I find exciting, especially if […]

Three albums behind me and I have not heard from one artist who writes his own songs. It seems that artist in the 50s were not able to write their own music. The Louvin Brothers wrote a couple songs as does today’s musician Louis Prima who was born in New Orleans, Louisiana did on his […]

When I saw that Elvis Presley’s first album was the second one on the list I felt relieved. I know who he is because my grandfather watched his films all the time while he was getting his drinking done. I know a lot of Presley’s songs and he is the “King of Rock and Roll.” […]
