That Funk Music
Day 27/366 days of writing and publishing pieces in 2024. I have a deep affinity for funk and disco music. Sometimes I wonder if I might have been in my 20s in 1974 and part of the scene. Perhaps I died and had a quick reincarnation, being born in 1975. Because the way I vibe with those genres doesn't really make sense.
Crime and Punishment.
"Crime and Punishment" "Is This The Behavior of A Sane Person"? "Crime and Punishment" by Fydor Dostoevsky at the Gural Theatre and produced by Phoenix Theatre had a run in Nyack, N.Y. Theater Festival last year where it was highly praised. As a condensed version of this masterpiece, the 90 minutes for the most part goes by quickly. The superb acting by all three actors, the gothic style staging, the sound, the music makes this an excellent off Broadway night out!
Women of Sound
I have tried to keep up with what is on the charts, but I am not as devoted to the top-forty hits as I once was. As much as I like the noises of Billie, Dua, Taylor and Queen Bee, I still find myself going back to the other side of the equation, meaning the ones who should be bigger. You like Beyonce? I go for Janelle Monae. Taylor Swift? Give me St. Vincent. And Billie Eilish may be hard to categorize, but Bjork got there first. So, pop music will go on, but I want a little bit more.
Has Lil Nas X Gone Too FAR???
I love Lil Nas X but what the f**k. Grammy Winner Lil Nas X released his music video "J Christ" and honestly it was way unbelievable like it was crazy.

A Cautionary Tale of Fleeting Moments...
Life is beautiful, but it’s fleeting…like a Chet Faker song. Why the reference to Chet Faker? His songs were a huge part of my adolescent soundtrack. “Terms and Conditions” have accompanied me on many public transit commutes. I also felt like the world moved faster when I listened to his tracks.
