Mermaid Day Parade 2013

If you live in New York, you simply must experience the Mermaid Day Parade which is held on the first Saturday of each summer in Coney Island.  At the Mermaid Parade, you will see Mermaids, Mermen and all sorts of people lively sea-themed costumes.  New Yorkers love a good parade and this is the best of the bunch.  It seems to be the one time that people of all ages, genders, sizes and shapes get together and express their creativity and freedom and I love it!  Enjoy more photos from the 2013 Mermaid Day Parade.  If sea nudity offends you, turn back now and don’t say I didn’t warn ya!

James Gandolfini

Whenever you need a little reminder that life is very precious and can be taken away at any moment, a shocking sudden death like that of actor James Gandolfini saddens the world and wakes us all up a little.  After being saddened by the news of author Vince Flynn, who also died at an extremely young age (49!) earlier in the day, the world learned of Gandolfini’s death from a heart attack at age 51!  As of press time, a future project in life is to watch the entire “Sopranos” show, but for not having watched it, it was clear the impact James Gandolfini had on TV and the world was huge.  I never had the opportunity to meet James Gandolfini, but from some of my friends that had met him, they said he was pretty nice and that his autograph was quite illegible.

The deaths of Vince Flynn and James Gandolfini should be a nice wake up call to live life to the fullest because it does not last forever!

RIP James Gandolfini and Vince Flynn!  🙁

fDeluxe Announce 3 August 2013 Shows: NYC, MPLS, Chicago

Funkateers!  If you live in New York, Minneapolis or Chicago, you are in luck.  One of the funkiest bands of the 80s (and still going strong), fDeluxe, have announced 3 shows in August 2013:

August 21, 2013 at City Winery in New York

August 22, 2013 at City Winery in Chicago

August 23, 2013 at Dakota in Minneapolis

If you don’t know the music of fDeluxe, let me tell you a few things:  their saxophone player Eric Leeds is arguably the best sax man alive and is responsible for so many of the funkiest moments on Prince’s late 80s output; 20 years later, the band is still incredibly funky; there’s a 99% chance you’ll hear “The Screams of Passion” and “Mutiny” performed live, which are two of the hidden gems of the 80s and if that’s not enough, they sang the original version of the classic song “Nothing Compares 2 U,” for crying out loud!

GO SEE THEM!  You will not regret it.

Pass it on!
