Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Pics from New York

I once worked here for four months. Good friend Miggy Mendoza snapped up this picture just the other day and immediately sent it to me. I worked here part time and at night. Some times I worked the floor assisting customers with their purchases. Usually I spun the CDs on a mixer and had a lot of fun doing it. The last time I spun stuff like that was in high school and those were with vinyl records. I wanted to work first at Tower Records at the Lincoln Center but they had no opening then. The Virgin Megastore was the coolest. I had a day job but I always wanted to find some extra work (my day job I used for savings, home, tuition etc. while what I earned at night went to my luho -- CDs and traveling).

The pic below is from the St. Patrick's Day Parade.
