Climbing to the Upper Decks (Before They’re Torn Down)
The title is ripped from the front page of the New York Times. My "homepage" which sounds crazily enough, kinda like my "homeboys."
It's a decent enough article about the "new" stadiums here in NYC, which have been all the con-tra-va-see, as the Brits like to say.
I prefer their pronunciation. It seems less, uhmmm, controversial...
WFMU is right on tonight. Dave The Spazz had an amazing show and now we are headlong into "Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains" with Noah (and actually it's Michael G. subbing for Noah) and it is just rocking my ass.
Some weird cover of "Mother's Little Helper" started it out and man, it just gets better...and better.
Check out the link to the right - WFMU, Jersey City, New Jersey, one of the last remaining readily available FREEFORM radio stations IN THE COUNTRY.
To CLEAR CHANNEL! etc...
Anyway, here's Heather. The negative is really dirty - gotta talk to my lab about that...
And here's Jagger/Richards:
"Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill"
