The story of Roxy & Blair – Part III

It’s 6pm.. in Malibu. The warm light of the evening sun is painting golden spots on the surface of the ocean. I see it all as a reflecting image on the side of my Porsche and the curves of the car distorts the image into psychedelic swirls… Reminds me of Blair somehow… I’m lying on the beach. My dark navy Armani suit is all scruffy and curled.. my black Wayfarers are partially hiding my face from the truth that is slowly arising. I kick off my...

The Comedown Years 1989 – 1991

I’m sipping coffee out of a Moomin mug. Regular off the shelf filtered coffee, no pour over hipster shit. It’s fuel, not a performance enhancer, a necessity. Humanity has evolved. You do not need to manually pour hot water over those carefully ground beans. People have spent years and years perfecting a machine that will do it for you. If you want to geek out and go deep for an average cup of Joe 8 to 10 times a day, go ahead, have...

The story of Roxy & Blair – Part II

It’s 2 am and I’m driving up Laurel Canyon. I’ve got a slight buzz going. An old friend of mine gave me some blue pills that I washed down with a brilliant vodka I got from a business contact at a meeting regarding buying up some property in the Valley. My friend drives a Vette. The vodka is imported.. Russian.. I poured it into a small flask covered in shark leather with silver skull details made by Bill Wall in Malibu. My friend says I need to...

David Crosby – Thousand Roads (1993)

I’m listening to the album Thousand Roads by David Crosby released in 1993. This is such a sleeper. From the opening track “Hero” featuring Phil Collins as both performer, co-writer and producer to the final track “Natalie” written by the very talented Stephen Bishop, this album is filled with interesting songs. David Crosby isn’t much of a songwriter himself, in my opinion, but he really shines when gifted...

The story of Roxy & Blair – Part I

I see Blair and take her up to Tra di Noi for dinner before we head out for drinks. I had the lobster ravioli which was very nice, she just barely touched a salad. She’s starting to get pretty drunk. I can tell by the way she struggles to focus when I tell her that I can’t come to the Hamptons next week to meet her parents because I’m seeing Huey Lewis and the News with Trent… or was it Dramarama with Ken.. I forget. I just really don’t want to...

I Swear

I finally decided to do a cover of the song “I Swear” made famous by the R&B group All-4-One in 1994. I opted to stay away from the slightly hairy upper lip look, muted earthy toned hooded jacket and sad-fit jeans style which can be seen in the accompanying video which illustrates color grading gone wrong on a whole other level only surpassed by CSI Miami. The song was originally written by Gary Baker and Frank J. Myers and...
