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.

Mad Dogs Mad Rick

I'm doing a story on the Mad Dog Motorcycle Club for a future issue of Business Mirror. I've always been fascinated by big bikes and all that biker culture. To own a Harley Davidson, man, that is something I hope I can eventually say, I got it done, mate.

I had the first of a few meetings to iron out the story we want to do. I will be joining them on a future ride and other functions to tell that ultimate biker story so I'd say that by the time I type it out on my laptop, it will be either late September or mid-October. I can't say if it's one column or a two or three-part series. We'll see where the whole experience takes me but I am stoked for this.

They gave me a Mad Dog support shirt that I will wear this Thursday on Halikinu Radio (was supposed to wear my Twisted Red Cross shirt). Yeah!

My playlist for the day: Vice by Razorlight * Monica's Light by The Railway Children * KC Accidental by Broken Social Scene * High by The Cure * Wonderwall by Ryan Adams * Your Hand In Mine by Explosions in the Sky * Landslide by Fleetwood Mac * The Look of Love (Part IV) by ABC * Love In A Vacuum by 'Til Tuesday * Space Age Love Song by Abra Moore * City of the Dead by The Clash * Kissing the Lipless by The Shins * Svenf-g-englar by Sigur Ros * Dear Prudence by Siouxsie and the Banshees
