"2 AM"

2am and I am 
Looking out of a window into the cold dark night
of a day that I hardly remember.
Never knowing if I am truly awake or still dreaming

THE MIND F***ER

I sit there. My hands are shaking and my brain is in so many sections....

The Ballad of Lou Reed

The Ballad of Lou Reed

 

I can't stand it when we take a Walk on the Wild Side. At least you can Walk and talk it.

I mean, How Do You Think It Feels when Caroline Says that Sally can't Dance?

Charley's Girl has this Crazy Feeling that I Believe in Love.

I guess you can't be the Chooser and the Chosen One.

Her Rock and Roll Heart has to deal with so much of the Street Hassle

Until the Light Goes Out

So,.... last night, I performed at Until the Light Goes Out for the first time and I left there asking myself one simple question: Why is this show not weekly? seriously!

Michael and Irina put on a show that mixed the best acoustic music with the best poetry and all this in a venue that has the creakiest stairs i've ever climbed. This (like I've mentioned) was the first UTLGO that I've ever per...
