What I Want In 2009



I am trying to visualize-I really believe that if you visualize something and really believe that it will come true,then you are halfway there.

I visualize:

1)Getting a decent job with benefits

2)Losing weight and toning my body.

3)Leaving the demons behind.

4)Drinking only occasionally and not too much.

5)Achieving a happier love life.

6)Developing my artistic talents.

7)Cutting down on swearing.

8)Regaining spirituality.

9)Becoming more independent.

10)Liking myself.

Watch Mad Men Here


Mad Men,the year's BEST TV show is available on line! You can watch them HERE:http://www.madmenepisodes.com/
especially the incredible Season 2 Finale and the poignant Season 1 Ep 13 :

Don Draper: "Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved."

One Week Till Christmas

One Week Till Christmas

...and just tonite I am getting around to writing Christmas cards.

But what I really would like to do is somehow find a way to send a greeting to all of the wonderful people in my past that I am no longer in touch with,friends from afar,distant relatives,and those from another place and another time who were kind to me.

Merry Christmas, wherever you are.

A Charming Christmas Story


Here is a great blog post that my friend Vickie sent me:
from
POV Online by
Mark Evanier

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 7/9/99
http://www.povonline.com/cols/COL245.htm

"I want to tell you a story...
The scene is Farmer's Market — the famed tourist mecca of Los Angeles. It's located but yards from the facility they call, "CBS Television City in Hollywood"...which, of course, is not in Hollywood but at least is very close.
Farmer's Market is a quaint collection of bungalow stores, produce stalls and little stands where one can buy darn near anything edible one wishes to devour. You buy your pizza slice or sandwich or Chinese food or whatever at one of umpteen counters, then carry it on a tray to an open-air table for consumption.
During the Summer or on weekends, the place is full of families and tourists and Japanese tour groups. But this was a winter weekday, not long before Christmas, and the crowd was mostly older folks, dawdling over coffee and danish. For most of them, it's a good place to get a donut or a taco, to sit and read the paper.
For me, it's a good place to get out of the house and grab something to eat. I arrived, headed for my favorite barbecue stand and, en route, noticed that Mel Tormé was seated at one of the tables.
Mel Tormé. My favorite singer. Just sitting there, sipping a cup of coffee, munching on an English Muffin, reading The New York Times. Mel Tormé.
I had never met Mel Tormé. Alas, I still haven't and now I never will. He looked like he was engrossed in the paper that day so I didn't stop and say, "Excuse me, I just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed all your records." I wish I had.
Instead, I continued over to the BBQ place, got myself a chicken sandwich and settled down at a table to consume it. I was about halfway through when four Christmas carolers strolled by, singing "Let It Snow," a cappella.
They were young adults with strong, fine voices and they were all clad in splendid Victorian garb. The Market had hired them (I assume) to stroll about and sing for the diners — a little touch of the holidays.
"Let It Snow" concluded not far from me to polite applause from all within earshot. I waved the leader of the chorale over and directed his attention to Mr. Tormé, seated about twenty yards from me.
"That's Mel Tormé down there. Do you know who he is?"
The singer was about 25 so it didn't horrify me that he said, "No."
I asked, "Do you know 'The Christmas Song?'"
Again, a "No."
I said, "That's the one that starts, 'Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...'"
"Oh, yes," the caroler chirped. "Is that what it's called? 'The Christmas Song?'"
"That's the name," I explained. "And that man wrote it." The singer thanked me, returned to his group for a brief huddle...and then they strolled down towards Mel Tormé. I ditched the rest of my sandwich and followed, a few steps behind. As they reached their quarry, they began singing, "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..." directly to him.
A big smile formed on Mel Tormé's face — and it wasn't the only one around. Most of those sitting at nearby tables knew who he was and many seemed aware of the significance of singing that song to him. For those who didn't, there was a sudden flurry of whispers: "That's Mel Tormé...he wrote that..."
As the choir reached the last chorus or two of the song, Mel got to his feet and made a little gesture that meant, "Let me sing one chorus solo." The carolers — all still apparently unaware they were in the presence of one of the world's great singers — looked a bit uncomfortable. I'd bet at least a couple were thinking, "Oh, no...the little fat guy wants to sing."
But they stopped and the little fat guy started to sing...and, of course, out came this beautiful, melodic, perfectly-on-pitch voice. The look on the face of the singer I'd briefed was amazed at first...then properly impressed.
On Mr. Tormé's signal, they all joined in on the final lines: "Although it's been said, many times, many ways...Merry Christmas to you..." Big smiles all around.
And not just from them. I looked and at all the tables surrounding the impromptu performance, I saw huge grins of delight...which segued, as the song ended, into a huge burst of applause. The whole tune only lasted about two minutes but I doubt anyone who was there will ever forget it.
I have witnessed a number of thrilling "show business" moments — those incidents, far and few between, where all the little hairs on your epidermis snap to attention and tingle with joy. Usually, these occur on a screen or stage. I hadn't expected to experience one next to a falafel stand — but I did.
Tormé thanked the harmonizers for the serenade and one of the women said, "You really wrote that?"
He nodded. "A wonderful songwriter named Bob Wells and I wrote that...and, get this — we did it on the hottest day of the year in July. It was a way to cool down."
Then the gent I'd briefed said, "You know, you're not a bad singer." He actually said that to Mel Tormé.
Mel chuckled. He realized that these four young folks hadn't the velvet-foggiest notion who he was, above and beyond the fact that he'd worked on that classic carol. "Well," he said. "I've actually made a few records in my day..."
"Really?" the other man asked. "How many?"
Tormé smiled and said, "Ninety."
I probably own about half of them on vinyl and/or CD. For some reason, they sound better on vinyl. (My favorite was the album he made with Buddy Rich. Go ahead. Find me a better parlay of singer and drummer. I'll wait.)
Today, as I'm reading obits, I'm reminded of that moment. And I'm impressed to remember that Mel Tormé was also an accomplished author and actor. Mostly though, I'm recalling that pre-Christmas afternoon.
I love people who do something so well that you can't conceive of it being done better. Doesn't even have to be something important: Singing, dancing, plate-spinning, mooning your neighbor's cat, whatever. There is a certain beauty to doing almost anything to perfection.
No recording exists of that chorus that Mel Tormé sang for the other diners at Farmer's Market but if you never believe another word I write, trust me on this. It was perfect. Absolutely perfect."

Mel Torme sounds better to me every year,but it was his appearance in the movie "Girls Town" that really made me appreciate his talents.

My Favorite Record Store


If Marc Time had a store,it would look like
3335 Adams Avenue San Diego, California 92116
http://www.nickelodeonrecords.com/
From the site:Nickelodeon Records is owned by Ruth and Elizabeth. Both of these women are over 60, which makes them mean, knowledgeable about records,excellent graders of condition, and fair pricers. Ruth went to high school in the 50's and remembers the first record she bought: "Why Don't You Believe Me?," by Joni James. Elizabeth went to high school in the 60's and Judy Henske was the first artist whose music she purchased. They both bought records through the '70's; this time span enables them to better serve the needs of people of all ages.

In addition to value in buying record collections, they place strong emphasis on the unusual in both artists and cover art. For example, behind one section in their store titled "Music for Dining" is a "Smoking Section." All of the artists are pictured holding or smoking cigarettes.

Their expertise was combined and in 1984 Nickelodeon Records was opened. The store opened selling only vinyl and continues to sell only vinyl and Oscar's Drive-In T-Shirts.

Winter in Junction City










We got a few inches today and it froze underneath.They don't have snow plows in this town so I guess I'll stay home.
More snow Wednesday and on the weekend.Glad I don't have to drive anywhere.

Religion


I come from a background of Roman Catholic rules and guilt-so much of organized religion does not focus on the here and now,but more on what happens after you die.

Although I believe that some cosmic force or forces created us,and there may be a great super invisible force behind life, I prefer the concept of free will-does God determine what I do in my life? Should he or she or it judge my actions?

I prefer a world where we focus on the NOW and not the HEREAFTER....a world free from judging others by our standards,not a black and white world where my religion is better than yours.I believe that many need religion,and religious values and thought. Just don't tell me how to live my life.

And I won't judge you for your religious beliefs.If you want to say prayers to a bearded old man in the sky or believe in the mythological Jesus,that's fine .

I think despite all of these heathen and heretical thoughts I am a spiritual person. Forget about my recent "sins" or misdeeds.I am a non-violent individual who tries to bring smiles and cheer into a sombre world,be it in my demeanor,actions,or my sometimes entertaining radio program.

I could always do better...I have a ways to go.

But I prefer to see how my life plays out and deal with the afterlife when I get there.

Stolen Song Segment

From Reuters and HuffPost:
Rock guitarist Joe Satriani has sued British band Coldplay, accusing the Grammy-nominated stars of plagiarizing one of his songs.

Satriani's copyright infringement suit, filed on Thursday in Los Angeles federal court, claims the Coldplay song "Viva La Vida" incorporates "substantial original portions" of his 2004 instrumental "If I Could Fly."

The 52-year-old guitar virtuoso is seeking a jury trial, damages and "any and all profits" attributable to the alleged copyright infringement.

Sarah Palin,Beauty Queen


She may be a beauty queen, but she is another corrupt republican.Check out these excerpts from Alaskan blog Mudflats:
"Palin is currently in the middle of a controversial gas pipeline project in Alaska. She’s favored the ‘Trans Canada’ proposal that will run the pipeline through Canada, in effect shipping US jobs over the border. Many Alaskans, including former governors, have favored the “All Alaska Route”.
She is also sueing the federal government over listing the polar bears as a threatened species. The science was even compelling enough to convince the Secretery of the Interior that the bears needed to be listed. But acknowlegement of this issue, and the potential disruption to development on Alaska’s oil-rich north slope spurred Palin to attempt to stop the listing.
Does she want to open ANWR? Yes. Every politician in Alaska wants to open ANWR. It’s basically a requirement if you ever hope to get elected for anything. Even Mark Begich, the progressive Democrat running against the indicted Senator and Alaskan institution Ted Stevens, is pro-drilling. That’s the sea we swim in up here. There are a few anti-drilling folks, but you have to look hard to find them, and work hard to have them admit it.
Alaskans really want to like Sarah Palin. In a state where corruption is the rule, and the same faces keep recycling over and over and over again like a bad dream, a new face, with a promise of reform seemed like a breath of fresh air. Palin defeated incumbent governor Frank Murkowski (father of Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski who he appointed to his own Senate seat when he was elected governor) because he was such an obnoxious, bloviating, downright BAD politician. This staunchly republican state voted with relief, not having to cross over and vote Democratic, but still able to get Murkowski the hell out of office. In the general election Palin swept into office running against a former Democratic governor, Tony Knowles, who was capable but came with baggage. And he represented to Alaskans more of the same, tired old-style politics, and special interests that we have come to loathe.
So, if McCain had made his selection six months ago, the squeaky-clean governor meme would have made a little more sense. But, Sarah Palin is currently under an ethics investigation by the Alaska state legislature..... "

My Mom, Rose


It was 25 years ago today that my mom died. It was a miserable summer, started by the news of my mom's massive headaches,marked by many visits to the hospital,conferences with doctors.She had an inoperable brain tumor. Much stress watching my Dad helplessly seeing her endure operations,treatments,and then lapsing into a coma.
By the time I had permanently moved to Connecticut to be with the family, my Mom was in the deepest sleep.No one knew what to do.
The Police song "Every Breath You Take" was played constantly on the radio and MTV. To this day I can't hear it without thinking about her. Just when we made the decision to move her to Hospice,she died overnight.I remember my Dad waking me at 5 AM with,"Marc wake up, your Mom is gone."
The funeral and wake were a blur-I cried while my brothers held back their tears.There was a procession to the cemetery of about 75 cars,she was well known in West Haven.
Afterwards we all just drank. My birthday came and went with little celebration.
Of course the grief has slowly subsided but there is never a day that I don't think about her. She was only 57, and her passing created a hole in our family that we never recovered from.
She always said that she was going to hell on a hot rail. I hope she ended up in a better place.
I still miss you Mom.

Anthrax Attacks Pushed US to go to War


Have you read about the so called 'Anthrax Suspect' who committed suicide this week?
It looks to me that in reality someone in the Bush administration used anthrax to threaten the public in 2001 to scare us into war with Iraq. Not only did CBS, Dick Cheney, members of Congress and even John McCain advance this theory of a Saddam led anthrax attack, but to this day the major media outlets are declaring the case all wrapped up with the suicide of suspect #2 this week.
The anthrax attacks that had us afraid to open our mail in 2001 were NOT from Iraq, but from within the U.S government labs. Glen Greenwald in Salon has an excellent article HERE about it.
There should be an investigation-this was one of the main reasons we were fooled in 2001 about Iraq.

Saved by a Hamburger


Actually, I usually loath McDonalds,and haven't indulged in a hamburger from McD's in about a year or so.
But last Saturday on the way to cover "Nowsville" I had the urge to get off Franklin and go thru the Drive-Up.
After I paid and left the parking lot,I heard a loud crunch and my truck was listing toward the pavement on the driver side front.My front wheel came off!
Now...if I hadn't stopped for that burger, I may have lost control and smashed into somebody.The AAA tow guy said I was a lucky guy.
Why would I stop on the way to doing a radio show?
What force put the thought of a soggy burger into my head?
The Fast Food Gods were watching out for me.
