It takes a lot to get me to go to New Jersey, but an exhibit featuring Beatles’ memorial inspired by 1960’s-era Beatlemania ? I’m there! Through June 25th, 2023, the Grammy Museum Experience at Prudential Center is hosting Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles! Is it worth a trip from Manhattan to Newark, on the PATH train? Oh, yeah.

Rad CD of the Week: The Grip Weeds, Strange Change Machine

As the past is reinvented to serve present needs, modern pop music continues to suffer from an absence of historical revisionism dating back farther than last Tuesday. It’s not such a mystery why anyone over the age of 17 (wait, make that ‘anyone with taste,’ which is not always a given) would probably rather listen to music from 20, 30 or even 40 years ago than anything currently stagnating on “the charts” – which haven’t been interesting or relevant since you were an egg.

That’s why it’s so refreshing to be able to moderate my regular listening sessions of Love’s Forever Changes and Mania, the lone album by Australia’s The Lucy Show (remember them?) with liberal doses of New Jersey’s best, not-well-known-enough band, The Grip Weeds.

Seriously Delicious Hero Sandwiches Discovered in Jersey City

The Yummyness

Although I’ve been doing the reverse morning commute to Jersey City now for two months (PATH train!) the weather has only just recently gotten un-sucky enough to encourage me to leave the building at lunch and go exploring in my new neighborhood. Today I had to make a trip to the Post Awful and decided to wander around a few side streets to see if there might be viable lunch food options about. This is when I discovered Telly’s Heros, a tiny, hole-in-the wall storefront sandwich place where I purchased a fresh turkey hero with provolone (added 25 cents to the price), lettuce, tomato and onion (because I’m not going to be kissing anybody today) and mayo on delicious soft hero bread for only…$4.00! Wow, what bargain! Adding a Snapple Peach iced tea brought my total to only $5.50 – about $2.00 less than you’d pay at a Subway if you could even find one around this ghost town.

Telly’s Heros and Sandwiches is located at 99 Greene St (one block off Montgomery), in lovely downtown Jersey City.

Update: Sadly, Telly’s closed its doors permanently in 2013.
