Awkward Photojournalism: Travel Edition

We drove cross state from Buffalo to Oneonta, NY today. We stopped at a rest stop outside Syracuse and I spotted a car with a toboggan strapped to the top of it and I had to take a picture of it because it was sunny out with no sign of snow and looked so out […]

Awolnation, Imagine Dragons, Zeale Heat Up Water Street Music Hall

This was my first venture out to Water Street Music Hall in Rochester. They have had some great acts in the past so I’ll have to keep an eye out now that I know how easy it is to get to. Seriously. I live in the eastern Buffalo burbs and it was an hour door […]

Lawrence Block is Following me on Twitter

This is a huge deal. You have no idea. I have been reading his work for decades. He has been my favorite mystery writer for as long as I remember. Before Dick Francis, before Elizabeth Peters, before Robert B Parker, Sue Grafton and Diane Mott Davison. And now, he has jumped feet first into social […]
