I am still poking at my resurrected website, trying to update old posts, retrieve dead links, etc. I’ve also had some time sitting at home, remoting in… Continue reading Musical Cheese: The Saga Began
So as it turns out, there is no “Woodstock 50” concert. The fact that its last gasp involved moving it to Maryland from upstate New York should have been the last nail in the coffin, but it kept on for a little while before the plug was pulled. As I’m writing this, though, I’m listening… Continue reading Woodstock 50: The "Woodstock" Song

For the first time in nearly 30 years, I was… Continue reading Musical Cheese Archive: 29 February 2012
