"Venice" is the latest album from Billy Hough, as Scream Along with Billy. It's available on Valentine's Day and I think you'll love it.
I realize it's February and I haven't blogged since December. Why is that? Am I depressed? Bored with blogging for no money? Or just burned out on churning out words? I'm not really certain, though a lot of the urge to share is satisfied by Facebook.
I've been thinking about how much I used to LOVE and HATE things as a kid. LOVED the Clash, HATED the Beatles. Black and white, there were no shades of gray. That fervor is mainly gone from my life and while that's sad, I guess a person just gets tired by their mid-forties. So anyway, this record is the first thing that really got me excited in a while. Well, that and Cynthia Carr's amazing David Wojnarowicz bio, Fire in the Belly. Oh, and How to Survive a Plague. Amazing documentary about AIDS activism that will most likely win an academy award this year. Oh, and Oscar, the latest kitten addition to the McGuire-opoulos home. I love that little dude like crazy too.
What's exciting you?
