Another sun n' clouds affair out there today. In bed at 1something, up at around 8:30.
Sat for hours yesterday watching YouTube virtual rides in New York City. One was Park Avenue all the way uptown, and another was Fifth Avenue all the way downtown. Still another took you up Madison Avenue. Sometimes YouTube hooks me. This was one of those times..
I made a couple trips to the Big Apple some years ago. Loved it. Wandered all over Manhattan, more downtown than uptown. Soho, Tribeca, Chelsea, and other neighborhoods. If I were stinky rich, I'd have a residence there. Absolutely taken with the energy of the place. My kinda town- at least for awhile at a stretch.
Listening the past couple nights to an old Joe Satriani album called Surfing with the Alien. Very nice stuff, but it sounds like the soundtrack to any number of 80s teen flicks. He can sound like Van Halen, and like Yngwie, but I didn't hear much in the way of originality. Still, a fun listen.
Lilyhammer is going through some changes. Into the 3rd season, and trying to savor it since that's all there is. They'd planned on another season, so this one will probably be a bit of a cliffhanger. Damn, I hate that things often end before you're ready for them to.
Time for that second cup of Morning Joe. And time to wrap this up. This is all the news I could muster. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Thursday to you. More later.
