Instagram Photo of the Week: Let’s All Hibernate!

Even though most US residents got one glorious hour of extra sleep last night — which I fully enjoyed — people like to bitch and moan about the return to standard time, because it signals the start of daylight ending at a normal hour (5 PM) instead of some freakish, land-of-the-midnight-sun hour like 9 PM. If you want to avoid darkness so badly, move to Europe and tell me how much you like it when the sun sets at 11 PM and rises at 3 AM, because that shit is fucked up.

Instagram Post of The Week: Halloween Monster Cake!

A couple of weeks ago, I stopped to gaze into the window of Magnolia Bakery in midtown while en route to the NBC Studios to attend a taping of that week’s Saturday Night Live (Host: Rami Malek). What a delight it was to see this tiered Halloween-themed cake right up front. So scary cute! Whatever your plans (or lack thereof ), have a safe and enjoyable Halloween!

Instagram Photo of The Week: Spooky Halloween Brownstone

I passed by this cool Brownstone last week and just had to snap a photo of its fun Halloween decor, including three witches at a cauldron out front, and an entire posse of frolicking skeletons on the balcony. After Halloween had to be canceled last year, NYC is all-in for this year’s celebrations. Some of the decorations that people have up on their buildings are just insane. And that’s how we like it.

Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg: One Year Gone

The Notorious RBG shuffled off this mortal coil one year ago today (September 18th, 2020), and she is sorely missed. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a pioneer and a champion for women’s rights the likes of whom we need more of! Ruth’s legacy deserved so much more than for her to be replaced on the Supreme Court by a right wing ringer who’s never even tried a case (fuck!), but all we can do is move forward. We miss you, RBG!

Instagram Post of The Week: Gail and Drummer Matt Laug at El Compadre!

I wish I could recall exactly who it was who introduced me to LA-based superstar drummer Matt Laug. Along with a long list of many other rock artists, Matt might be best-known for playing drums on Alanis Morissette’s 1995 breakthrough album, Jagged Little Pill, which sold over 16 million copies and was the number one album on the US Billboard 200 for the decade 1990-1999. I met Matt when he was drumming for Slash’s Snakepit, and after interviewing him for Modern Drummer Magazine we finally had the chance to meet in person over Margarita’s and Mexican food at El Compadre restaurant in Hollywood back in 2002, I believe. Good times.

Cheers to Another Great Weekend!

Can you believe my most popular Instagram post from last week (well, to be honest, it was my third most-popular) is of this delicious and potent Margarita? I sort of can.

Public Service Announcement: Please Get Vaccinated

I made my first appointment to get the Covid vaccine on the exact day that NY State opened eligibility for my age group, and was fully vaccinated by April. Being vaccinated allowed me to safely fly across the country to meet up with my sister (who is also vaccinated) for a mind-blowingly fun road trip across the state of Utah, which I will remember for the rest of my life. My time in Utah more than made up for hardly being able to leave my house of the better part a year. I feel that I owe not just my physical health, but the triumphant return of my mental health to the Covid vaccine. Thank god for medical science!

If you’ve already been fully vaccinated, thank you, and please congratulate yourself on doing your part to keep yourself and others safe as we attempt to beat this fucking virus, which as we can see is not backing down so easily.
