We saw – and very much enjoyed – a musical last night at the New World Stages. Desperate Measures, very loosely (better to say barely) based on Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, proved a delightful musical. Recommend you see it. Every time I glanced to my right, I saw Shelly smiling. Female lead Lauren Molina seemed to channel Lucille Ball with her facial expressions. The plot might not play well in the era of #Me2 but you do not think about it. As a country-rock enthusiast,...

At Gotham meetings we’ll mention the “Power of Gotham.” How through Fredslist which I have moderated since last fall, we find help for our needs, some rather difficult, place friends and relatives and some of us in new gigs. Many of us look good to friends, relatives – and clients who benefit from the introductions to the professionals in our Gotham tribe. Through the relationships we develop, business results. And not to diminish the social, real and enduring friendship resu...
Songs find a way to stick in my head.   Different reasons.   Stuff going on with politics makes me recall two great Manassas songs from their 2nd studio LP, Down the Road, “Isn’t It About Time” and “Lies.” I used one in a tweet earlier this month and kept thinking about the other whenever I used hashtag #Lies on any number of tweets this month.   Just yesterday – on the way to the gym, I call out to Siriwhile driving to play Hot Burrito #2 (HB#2). It came up with the studio ...
Going into this weekend, I planned no blog relating to music. Indeed, I thought a lot about the theme Gotham’s webmaster covered yesterday. As with much of my writing, things change. Then we attended a concert at the now named Theatre at Westbury which used to have Music Fair in its moniker. My familiarity with the music and that the performers included two original (no longer Young) Rascals Felix Cavaliere and Gene Cornish certainly lent to expectations of an enjoyable eveni...

Today’s Sunday blog covers how the right tribe behind you and with you helps you make a difference and makes a difference for you and the other with whom you connect. Please read on!   Since I began moderating Fredslist (and Promolist) at the end of last summer I early get to see requests for help, as well as thank yous to members of our Gotham tribe who responded to these requests. Other times posts share information, advise of Gotham events, request involvement in Gotham (e...
I was advised we needed to do something outside today. I suggested seeing “Thor” pitch in a rehab assignment in Coney Island. She agreed. The team we all hope he rejoins soon frustrates me. I am sure all the players are trying their best but the record suggests a limit to their collective abilities and it remains a source of frustration. No plans to change teams; just hoping tinkering a bit can lead to improvement. I find no merit trading off the pitchers who smart GMs can bu...

Looking forward to some fireworks on Wednesday? After all we celebrate our nation’s independence and for many fireworks displays remain an attraction. Already enjoyed two nice displays at baseball stadiums in San Diego and Flushing, in April and a few weekends back respectively. Last night’s display, our third this year was the 5thtime we combined fireworks with a concert at Town of Hempstead Park. It was leisurely. We arrived rather early; got a really good spot to the left ...

No secret around these parts about my love for live music. Most know I attended a fair amount of concerts over the years. Some years more shows than others. Few disappoint. I generally leave rather satisfied and energized by the music. Something certainly clicked this past Wednesday eve (June 20, 2018) at Jones Beach. Living legend John Fogerty, the musician extraordinaire behind the sound who wrote and voiced the hits of Creedence Clearwater Revival over seven studio LPs an...
Happy Father’s Day!   I already enjoyed a stellar card from Marisa – she always finds a card with the right sentiments and message --earlier this past week and mom’s on Friday.   Sometimes we barbecue; mostlyhere, albeit as detailed in this space last year I caught a break and our nephew hosted.   No BBQ this year.   Unfortunately an institution announced plans to close and Shelly suggested we get there with her dad.   It’s my fave deli.   Heck when a friend and former cli...

The evening before involved a rather large outing of sorts.   Some 265 or so of friends, colleagues, their family, friends, colleagues and clients. Attending either through Gotham City Networking,Inc.® or Kings FDR Tolerance Foundation of FDR Lodge 613, Knights of Pythias.   Citifield. Mets v. Yankees. Five home runs.   Fireworks during the game and after.   Some left happy because of one outcome (which disappointed others). (If only this score above held but it was nice wh...
