"You're only as good as your last envelope"

The same part of my brain which affectionately remembers taking in the Sopranos for the first time remembers also tapping away on here. I pumped words into here for years and then just stopped. Nostalgia has made me log back in. I know nobody is going to be reading this now. Major life events have happened in the interim, lived not written about and I'm happy about that. They have their own life, their own space. This will perhaps become what it once was, a log of what stimuli is motivating me at least. Right now season one of the Sopranos is on the go at home and it led me back here. Perhaps jabbering about things of little consequence is more necessary than I once thought, perhaps it is what Dr Melfi offers Tony, perhaps this will be the only lonely post for another year or maybe I will be back tomorrow writing for myself to read in another few years.

10. Hungry Heart
Darkness on the Edge of Town (Full Album)

13. Something in the Night
14. Candy’s Room
15. Racing in the Street

30. Twist & Shout
31. Thunder Road (solo acoustic)

It was truly epic. Two days later and we're seeing another hero, this guy...

Bruce and the E street band, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, it really doesn't get any better. Crazy Horse were incredible, the sound was great and they filled the O2 with glorious noise. Here is the set list...

01. Love And Only Love
02. Powderfinger
03. Psychedelic Pill
04. Walk Like A Giant
05. Hole In The Sky
06. Red Sun
07. Comes A Time

13. Mr. Soul
14. Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)
15. Like A Hurricane
16. Roll Another Number
17. Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

Thought I'd keep you up to speed. It's been emotional. If you ever get a chance to see either of these two I suggest you take it.

Welcome to Clint Walker

Just saw this over on Pulman's Facebook and re-activated Alley posting...

Got that Welcome To Hell heart in throat feeling from this clip, it's not often that something like this sparks my interest and it really did. Triple kinks, rails next to walls and Evil Kenevil type determination. Watch it!
