The day has finally come, the return of mp3s to Pound for Pound. Mark the date, make it a national holiday, celebrate people. I purchased an AirPort card earlier today, and now am sitting in a cafe writing this post. What a world! What next? A man on the moon? Steroids in baseball? America at war because of lies and more lies? Anyway, it is so nice to be back on my Mac, so sweet, so gentle, so forgiving. How anyone could use a PC is beyond me? It must have some connection to the Bush victory in 2004, and the rising level of sado-masochistic behavior in this country.

For those in Philly, I must recommend Hausbrandt, a cafe at 207 S. 15th Street (between Walnut and Locust). Good coffee and expresso, as they are the only outlet for the Hausbrandt bean in our fair city. This is a popular brand in Europe, so you know it must be good. Best of all, they offer free wireless access. Free, unlike the Starbucks across the street, you corporate whores.

Anyway, there will be a fury of posts this weekend and next week, as I now can finally upload the music to finish up my drafts. The above tracks are just some random ish to get me back in the game, like playing a few games at AA, just to get your swing back. I know that lemon-red has probably put most of this up like two years ago, but what can I do? Actually, it is a sort of frightening look at my internal soundtrack, and should give a sense of the anything-goes attitude that's been adopted here. Actually, listening to the John Zorn track from Spy vs. Spy (Zorn's tribute to Ornette Coleman), it may get me put on a watch list. Harlem to the LES, way down to Atlanta, across the ocean to Manchester, then up to whatever planet Mariah Carey came from. [Whoever guesses which song is my favorite of these 5 gets a prize, just as my bol Jayo gets for his Bob Dylan catch.]

Next, a recap of the Tribute to DJ Screw at Joe's Pub last week, with lots of songs from the various performers to make it up to my dear readers. ESG, Bun B, Grit Boys, DJ Screw and Lil O shall all make an appearance.

Photon Connects iPhoto Directly to Moveable Type Sites
That's why I embrace apps such as Address Book and iCal. For my digital images, iPhoto 5 is my database.
What a great blog! I'm definitely going to bookmark you for future visits.

I have a Viagra site/blog. It pretty much covers Viagra related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

Just thought I'd let you know about a site where you can make over $800 a month in extra income. Go to this site   MAKE MONEY NOW  and put in your zip code..... up will pop several places where you can get paid to secret shop, take surveys, etc.  It's free.  I found several and I live in a small town!

i'll respond to this post properly when i get the time, but WOW whats up with that SHADY first spam comment?!?

Jayo,

For real, that is a sketchy comment. The link takes you to a site devoted to setting up romantic getaways for couples. Are we going to be reading stories in the paper down the road about rich couples getting the newlywed suite with money intended for New Orleans' poor? I hope not. Spam is turned off now, so you'll have to go elsewhere to GET RICH NOW.

Thanks for your comments recently, as I finally realized that people were leaving them. I really appreciate it, mang.
