Sunday is a fun day

I just got done being sick last week, even missed a day of work on Tuesday. Opted for the “full day in bed” plan – and it worked out swimmingly. Everything was groovy till my sister came through this weekend with her two kids. One had a fever of 102, the other a mere 100.

Now my daughter is rocking a 102 and my wife and I feel like shit. Oh, the horror.

Working on some writing crap. I hope to have something worth posting on the site in the near future. If nothing else, I can continue posting the usual crapola. That always holds ‘em for a while.

I got three words for you: small things considered.

Hey Johnny,
I wanted to drop you a line to let you know about an event series I’m
putting together: www.urbanassaultride.com

New Belgium is the title sponsor and it’s funky bike scavenger hunt that’s
all about beer, bikes, and big wheels.
it’s in 8 cities this year and we’re looking into a Flagstaff event in
2009.

Oh. Dear. God. Oh my, Flagstaff in ’09? We’re going to tear the lid off it. Just like we do everything else.

I found this collection of someone’s favorite tunes somewhere or the other. Don’t ask. Don’t tell. There are songs on there I haven’t heard in ten years. Stone Roses to Quicksand to Fugazi to Sonic Youth to Joy Division to Pailhead? Get outta here. Check it if you want.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  2. …when i was just a kid, it was desmond, morello, wright & brubeck that taught me something about music w/ ‘take five’ by making me realize that “hey, the timing is different w/ this…not all music is based the same”…

    …& bill evans painted the most beautiful pictures w/ the piano for so many years…the demons he used to explore the musical stratosphere finally took him away…

  3. If music has never made you cry,
    don’t listen to Bill Evans.
    There’s no point.

    Take 5 is merely a gateway drug.
    Blue Rondo is the one that really makes one question the use of 4.

    There is no video, but the Carnegie Hall recordings are the best for DB & Desmond, moreso, I think, than Time Out.

  4. …when i wanted to go to a far away place as a kid, lennie tristano was the cat who i listened to…i wore out record player needles listening to my one LT album…

    …at 16 yrs old i stood outside a jazz club in toronto in the winter snow because i was too young & didn’t have the money anyway, trying to hear my man lennie t…thirty miles from home, middle of the night, i later snuck (sic) into the apartment building of a family friend & curled up in a dirty chair in the basement furnace room, hoping i wouldn’t get caught so the rest of the night wouldn’t be as big a disappointment as not seeing my main man at the keys…

    …the completely free form of “intuition”, the exotic eastern sounds of “turkish mambo”…”requiem” was a blues styled tribute to charlie parker & i guess this was my need to voice a requiem for a jazz great, lennie tristano…
