Sheriff's Public Service Announcement

Online Videos by

Totally New Concept!

"Getting your money's worth."

I pay $78/month for a gym membership.

Until this past Monday, I hadn't gone in six weeks. And another six weeks before that incident.

I've gone every night, Monday through Thursday. I'm going again tonight, and hopefully tomorrow night.

Each session lasts about two or three hours. First, an hour on the elliptical machine. Then a 15 minute break to stretch out the crick in my neck that develops every damn time. Then various weight lifting, with small breaks in between. I wrap it up with 10-30 minutes of deep stretching.

No more being a fat-ass for me, thanks.

Joe Zawinul, RIP

Joe wrote my favorite song ever, the one I've woken up to every weekday morning for the past eight years.

In a Silent Way, with Miles Davis. I listen to that album whenever I need to relax (which is often) or day dream. He helped usher in jazz fusion.

I was very lucky to see Joe perform with his Syndicate at Lincoln Center last year.

NPR Article about Joe's history.

Last month, we lost pioneering drummer Max Roach.

It hasn't been a good year for jazz masters.

Just checking in...

I went upstate this weekend and hung out with some friends and their 3 young sons. It was good to get away from the city.

We haven't heard or seen the landlord since the incident, which is fine by us.

Work has been insane this week. I'm already exhausted. I'll try to have more to say this weekend.
