I have a thing for Doritos, specifically Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos. If you aren't familiar, they’re in the purple bag. When I lived in Bed Stuy, I ate them at least once a week. Since the move to Washington Heights, I have probably had them twice in two years. 1. I got soft. I have laundry in my new building. In Bed Stuy I had to hang out in front of the laundry mat while my clothes were washing. Doritos were my reward. 2. There was no bodega

Last night I fell down a Youtube rabbit hole. One of my Facebook friends posted the Mikhail Baryshnikov/Gregory Hines dance scene in White Nights. This led me to Gregory Hines dance videos, then Sammy Davis, Savion Glover, Nicholas Brothers, Bill Bojangles, Sandman Sims

My first assignment was assembling press kits in the A&R Department at Atlantic. The department's assistant was in the cube next to mine, so we chatted a bit while we worked. Me: How do you like working at a music label? Assistant: I love it! Me: Cool! Is this what you always wanted to do? Do

New York has been on my mind, over the past few weeks. When things get difficult or uncertain, I do an audit, to determine whether this place is worth it. Obviously after fourteen years, the pros have won, but it has been a real struggle. My first apartment in New York was a fifth floor walk-up, jr. one bedroom, that I shared with my former college roommate.  The building was near the UN, so technically I lived in a good neighborhood. It's just that my building
