Missing Sam. A True Story.


Soon I will write the true story of why and how I missed meeting Sam Wagstaff, one-time curator of The Wadsworth Atheneum, in Hartford, Connecticut.

It's a true story of just how cruel a very bitter, bitter full-blown alcoholic can be, thinking I was being punished by being denied the opportunity to go to The Wadsworth when Wagstaff gave a lecture in conjunction with the exhibition of photographs he had amassed in such a short period of time, documented in the book A BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHS.

Cruel doesn't even begin to describe the moment.

This Day in Music History|1975

Queen started recording ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ at Rockfield studio’s in Monmouth, Wales, in 1975 (the song was recorded over three weeks). Freddie Mercury had mentally prepared the song beforehand and directed the band throughout the sessions. May, Mercury, and Taylor sang their vocal parts continually for ten to twelve hours a day, resulting in 180 separate overdubs.

'Round Here.

video

My daddy got here on the gravy train
I guess my mama had a real bad start to the game
They went walking and she took his nameRound here

There was dancing in the afternoons those days
Waiting tables, chasing girls with the money he made
It was 1957, and love felt the same, love felt the same

Frightened little girl, she makes a break
Into the arms of... something better
Round here

I hear my mama call in Kingsbury Park
Just me and David and a football that glowed in the dark
Waiting patiently to make my mark
Round here

And I remember my first day at school
And I remember trouble, and thinking I was so cool
I remember it all, like yesterday

Don't you

Every time I try to leave this place
Something inside says, "You can do better"
Round here

So come with me, let me show you where I've lived
I want to put my hands in this earth again
Music fell like rain to the streets
The Specials and The Jam, to The Beat
Even though I think I've seen everything there is to see of this world
I gotta be thankful that this crowded space
Is the place of my birth

When all that I wanted, was to be someone.

Two little Hitlers in an old church hall
Some cheesy covers and those neighbours that banged on the walls
Andy says it's time to show them all
Round here

Please sir, we two have other plans
Please sir you would not understand,
What's going on
Is magical, can't you see
That some of us do more than dream

Every time I try to leave this place
Something inside says, "Keep on keeping, on and on...."
Around here

So come with me, let me show you where I've lived
I want to put my hands in this earth again
Music fell like rain to the streets
The Specials and The Jam, ABC
Even though I think I've seen everything there is to see of this world
I gotta be thankful that this crowded space
Is the place of my birth

My birth,
In this town,
Yes I guess I got to be someone

To be somebody
In the Beautiful city

This place I call home
These streets of London
It's everything I know (everything and everybody)
On the streets of London
I want to thank you

My daddy got here on the gravy train.

Senator Edward "Teddy" Kennedy Dead at 77.
Mary Jo Kopechne STILL Dead!

BREAKING!
Ted Kennedy Joins Mary Jo Kopechne
at Chappaquiddick for the August Recess!



In the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident, the car Kennedy was driving ran off a bridge and plunged into water, resulting in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and was given a suspended sentence; however, doubts about his account of the accident significantly damaged his chances of ever becoming President of the United States. Kennedy's one run for the office, in the 1980 presidential election, ended in a primary campaign loss to incumbent Democratic President Jimmy Carter. Kennedy was known for his oratorical power, with his 1968 eulogy for his brother Robert and his 1980 Democratic National Convention rallying cry for American liberalism being his best-known moments. Kennedy's heated rhetoric helped lead to the defeat of the 1987 Robert Bork Supreme Court nomination and usher in an era of intense political battles over federal judicial nominations. Kennedy's personal behavior became the subject of public ridicule in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but his 1992 marriage to Victoria Anne Reggie stabilized his life.

Haunting me.

sweet thing
I know how strong that I appear
but you don't know the days
since someone loved me
I stopped
bleeding


but you don't know me (no you don't know)
someday
my darkest fears will find their way,
after all.



all day,
my heart tells strangers how I feel
and it's hard not to feel this way
when you thought your future was on prescription

(what have I learned? from all this pain?)
