Halloween

First, let me thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday. It’s a small gesture, but one that is truly appreciated. I’m not very good at doing it myself (and I promised I’d be better at doing it), so happy belated birthday to Debbie and Ed.

It’s Halloween, no longer a holiday that sneaks up on you. I saw people decorating for Halloween on September 30- I guess that’s the unofficial start date of decorating for Halloween. And although some are small in scope, many go way overboard. It’s like a full cemetery in some yards.

I’m not big on Halloween, so you won’t see any decorations outside my house. It’s my birth month, and my wedding anniversary is also in October, so my month is already filled up with celebrations.

However, with Halloween in mind, I put together a Halloween podcast. I’ve seen a lot of people put together different Halloween podcasts, so I joined in. the fun. So listen to this spooky set of music, featuring surprises and these bands: David Bowie, Sons & Daughters, Edgar Winter, Redd Kross, Neko Case, Dave Edmunds, the Cramps, Siouxsie & the Banshees, the Fleshtones, Mekons, the Who, Lou Rawls, Warren Zevon, and the Five Man Electrical Band.

This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at brennick.net. There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called brennick.net. Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.

Take a knee

Well, I now have a date for the knee – November 12. It’s about as perfect a date as I could get, so I’ m glad the surgeon had that day open for me. I had Doctors’ appointments, physical therapy, and a whole booklet of things that were given to me as preparation, with more to come before the surgery.

I’ve been asked whether I’m anxious about the surgery, but I’ve quickly accepted it as my knee is in constant pain, and I’m ready to do anything to make the pain go away – even trading some intense short-term pain for it. Let me get back to my life of not remembering that I have a knee.

Knee’s up time this week with this week’s podcast, ehich has Blondie, Norma Tanega, Thundercat, Ann Peebles, the Kitchen Cinq, Concrete Blonde, the Cars, Larris Wallis, Larry Williams, Jesus Jones, Jane’s Addiction, Elvis Costello, Stephen Stills, Crosby/Nash, and Stills/Young Band.

Getting old


Did some chores with my son on Friday – replaced a storm door and did a few other tasks around the house. Man, was I sore afterward, and not the regular sore one normally feels after doing some physical work (that storm door was a little harder to do than I thought it would be). I was what I am calling “old man sore.” That was the first time I really felt like age was catching up to me. I need age to stop catching up to me – I’ll have to go a little faster in the future.

Lots of great tunes today (yes, they lean old). Please join me in listening to Norah Jones, Dawn Landes, Joan Armatrading, Lloyd Cole, the Connells, Rosanne Cash, Rubber Rodeo, Mike McGear, Yes, Marvin Gaye, Barnaby Bye, Badfinger, and the Bee Gees.

Pod 282

A quick one this morning – for the first time in a while we have what I call true fall – it’s cooled right down, the leaves are/have changed (I drove through Franconia Notch earlier this week – breathtaking), and it just seems like the season changed nice and gradually this year.

Got some new music, some classic and a combination of the two in today’s podcast, with The New Pornographers, Samantha Fish, Lower Dens, Babe Ruth, Steve Miller, John Mayall, Kaleidoscope, Small Faces, Dukes of Stratusphear, and the Beatles.
