Endangered Jazz

Please join me for the grand opening of my new blog, Endangered Jazz. It's about, you guessed it, jazz music. So, if you have no interest in that sort of thing, that's fine too, you can pass along quietly.

To date, I have some videos pulled from YouTube featuring Miles Davis and John Coltrane, Hampton Hawes and Shelley Manne, and Gerry Mulligan and Art Farmer. For the time being, I'll probably keep it to videos and some links and random thoughts, since my music criticism skills basically exist at the "I like it because it sounds good" level.

However, if you are looking for more in-depth discussion of the music, be sure to check out the comments, since the "anonymous" commenter who has already discovered the blog can say a whole lot more a whole lot better than I can.

Not so-Super Bowl

When do pitchers and catchers report?

If the Pats had gone 14-2 and lost the Super Bowl, I don't think I would have cared much at all that they lost. As it is, I just feel like, blahh, I've wasted my whole fall and winter watching them break records for that? Christ, I could have read a couple of books or something.

With baseball, I'd rather watch regular season games anyways. Something about knowing there's a game on almost every night to fall asleep to on TV or to listen to on the radio while you're out on the grill that is very soothing and refreshing.

So, yeah, I guess baseball is kind of like valium.
