Thanks to this commercial for The New Yorker‘s iPad app, I no longer have to wonder what it’d be like to spend a day with Jason Schwartzman. (I’m happy to report that he’s just as magical as I knew he’d be!) Also, where can I buy the light behind his head in the first scene?

    Oh, man. I have been waiting for this meonmt all my life. I was born for this post!!!JKI just got back from the $2000 gig in San Diego (my cut is $500 + the comped accommodations at ). It was an awesome gig, except for the fact that I had to sing “Highway to Hell” and “You Shook Me all Night Long” which leaves my voice in tatters (what a mess, this town’s in tatters, I’ve been shattered, shedobie, shattered). While driving back home to Fresno I found myself listening to the ELO album “Out of the Blue”, the one with “Turn to Stone”, “Sweet Talking Woman”, and “Mr. Blue Sky”. When I listen to that album, more than any other, feelings that I have repressed or are no longer relevant to my life come rushing back in a flood. A torrent of loneliness and sadness washes over me. God, I sometimes forget how alone I felt as a kid. And of coarse, with the exception of three songs, I listened to the whole double-sided album. It’s odd, but those emotions kinda feel like old friends, and it feels right to keep in touch with them every once in a while. Supertramp’s “Breakfast in America” also has the same effect on me. The album that cheers me up is “Duke” by Genesis (“Misunderstanding”, Turn it on Again”). It came out at around the same time, so my life was in the same sad emotional state. The album was made while Phil Collins was separating from wife #1, for which he wrote the song “In The Air Tonight”, the song that transformed his career and launched him into the super star stratosphere. Some of the songs on “Duke” also reflect his sorrows and are a bit depressing. However, the music on that album is soooo good that it gave me hope somehow. PS. Miguel Ferrerr is playing Buddy Rich in a biopic that should be out soon. He does his own skin work, which I hear is quite good.
