Someone explain this to me. Just to make it clear, I was the only other person on the bus, so there were plenty of seats.

Best Song Of All Time Of The Week

Newest of the million features of this blog that I'll probably drop. This is the "Best Song of All Time of the Week". I've noticed I change the best "thing" of all time very frquently, so I figured it would be good to bestow the honor to a different song every week.

This weeks winner (make fun if you like): Fantasy by Mariah Carey.

I need your help!

Kristen and I went and saw Julie and Julia last night. I really enjoyed it. But it also made me realize, that I want to blog about something specific. I've tried to have numerous "theme blogs" like the top ten songs of that day, doing the reviews of the 75 albums a man should own, and I just never stuck with it.

I'm open to suggestions though! Hit me up out there if you can think of a great focus I could give to this blog. Beyond that, I'm just going to try to find something to write about everyday. At least that's a start.

This is the elevator at the Irving Park Brown Line by my office. And people say that city folk aren't helpful!

Blast From the Past

I was just listening to "Adam Raised of Cain" by the Boss and I was reminded of this book I read in elementary school. I found a copy on Amazon and I think it just might be worth the 3 dollars.

The plot is basically this prepubescent boy, in a single parent home, dealing with all of his issues by writing fan letters about them to Bruce Springsteen. I can't remember if the Boss ever writes back or if the kid ever even sends the letters. I just had a vision of Bruce, dictating a response to Max Weinberg, who is furiously typing in shorthand.
