The Gordon's are going to Cape Cod (part 1)

7/25/13 13:00 On the ferry to New London

First day of vacation, four days in Cape Cod, tonight catching a Cape Cod baseball game, but it’s grey outside, chilly, drizzle.  Autumn is captured in the mists.  I took Mo Cheeks, Joe and Bella outside for a walk to see the view of the land, passing ferry, the wood trash bobbing in the waves. A morose kid is sitting up there alone, very similar to the brooding teenager I was.  It was an easy drive from Port Jefferson Station, taking Sound Avenue, passing the pristine vineyards and both Ali and I said it would be nice if we liked wine and could take more drives out here.  Most of them offer very good wine. Pinot Noir is perhaps my favorite if I had a wine to choose.  The ferry is rocking side to side, watching sky and then waves.  I told Amanda soon there will be sick people.  I’m curious what the Cape will be like.  I’ve heard so much about it over the years and now we are on our way to a new vacation spot.  Closing up…I want to take more pictures.  


  1. Thanks for sharing your experiences! I actually have been looking at some Cape Cod rentals because I finally have some free time where I can get down there and spend a few days there. I simply love going to the beach there. What is your favorite thing to do there?

    1. Hi Chase,

      We didn't hit the beaches on this trip,so I will say my favorite was the Cape Cod baseball games, their fans and the genuine feeling of community. Second choice is the drive in and passing through Chatham... thank you for posting.

Alabama Shakes brings down Carnegie Hall

March 25, 2017I apologize for the delay since I should have wrote this last weekend.  I’m trying to write a blog entry once a week.  Once a week.  That is all.  Yet, even the single entry can get tangled in other demands.  Writing is a discipline.  Either I have it or I get distracted or lost in other habits.  Anyway, here is my review of the Tibet House concert on March 16th…as always thank you for reading it.I was in Pennsylvania on business and yet I had tickets to see the show at Carnegie Hall.  When I bought the single seat – a few weeks back – I bought the most expensive - in the orchestra. I knew I had to write down the event my book since I would forget.  I had made plans with a client to visit the company and yet, even with the date marked down, I still forgot.  But, I was not going to miss this event.  The lineup was incredible, Iggy Pop, New Order, Alabama Shakes, Patty Smith, Laurie Anderson, and others and of course the esteemed composer Philip Glass.  It was a benefit co…

The American Pink Floyd Experience-Ameri-Floyd at 89 North Patchogue

07:54 2/15/15
I wanted to get in a review of The American Pink Floyd Experience (Ameri-Floyd) at 89 North a couple of weeks back.  I also wanted to write down some thoughts on the amount of Pink Floyd copy bands that play in the area.  This will be brief and I hope you can relate or share your thoughts.   If you are a Pink Floyd fan, the only feasible way to experience their music live - is through a cover band.  There are no plans for Pink Floyd to tour.  There is no reason for them to tour since there are many options to see these cover bands.  No matter where to live, you can rest your minds there is a Floyd cover band close by.  The band that played at 89 North was their first show, but they were solid and were close to perfect.  Ameri-Floyd are fused from two different Pink Floyd cover bands to form The American Pink Floyd Experience, not the be confused with the Brit or the Aussie Pink Floyd Experience and not to be further compared and contrasted with the The American Pink Floyd…

A short review of Henry Rollin's book Solipsist

This year my plan is to read most if not all of Henry Rollin's books.

I just finished Henry Rollins book Solipsist, 166 pages. I wanted to get in a few words – to share a brief review. Overall the book is solid. It is entertaining to a degree, but the sentences were boring. Almost all of the sentences began with I or me. Why not, take a look at the title, which means that the self is the only thing that can be known and verified. There were three segments I heard on some of his CD’s so they were not shocking and were different from the ego driven ejaculations on most the pages. Still, it’s a good book which drums up internal conflicts over and over again.
