By DLFerguson, published on Nov 16, 2008

...of my personal favorites because it is photographed so well, the performances are all outstanding and it combines the private eye and supernatural genres flawlessly. It's a hell of a movie and given the subject matter, I mean that quite literally.Harry Angel is a private detective in 1955 New York and he's definitely not Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe. When we first see him he looks like he's coming off a three-day binge. He's contacted by a lawyer named Winesap ("Law & Order" regular Dann Florek) who represents a strange foreign gentleman named Louis Cyphre who wants Harry to... (more)

Big Apple Jazz: Ez Woodshed Cafe

By Kim, published on Nov 14, 2008

It was located in Harlem, New York on Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd between West 131 and 132nd Street. The space was an invigorating cafe that was a true gem. Although it closed its doors June 24, 2008, the venue remains a memorable location in the hearts of many. The " Big Apple" or "Woodshed" was a favorite for afternoon Jazz seekers as they could come in and experience live Jazz performed by local jazz musicians, enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, or a soft drink, absorb a compelling read from one of the wide variety of books on hand, pick up a CD of Jazz artists ranging from John Coltrane... (more)

... I'd known them since my days in Utah, and it's an easy thing to do.I had one thing I looked for every day, one landmark, when I walked the youngest two children to school...I'd check to see if he was still around, if the winter hadn't taken him away, if he'd survived another season here in New York.He was. He'd survived. The Brooklyn Cowboy.He's still there, a sturdy, yellow plastic cowboy embedded in the asphalt on Bay two and a half steps from the curb.He's one of the old plastic cowboys, the kind that sat on a horse, with very bowed legs, his chaps embossed in plastic, his trusty... (more)

Their summer long tour was beginning to take its toll even on this six pack of hard rocking teens. They were sad yet a bit relieved that after this Friday & Saturday night at the Pine City Hullabaloo Club, they could head south again.

The band, LUKE'S CABBAGE STORE was from Warner Robins, Georgia a far cry from the bustle of New York and the other big cities they had visited this summer. Pine City on the other hand, was small town America, quaint and hospitable.... (more)

By CCNY, published on Oct 20, 2008

A recent New York Times article detailed the plight of certain parents of considerable means who, by dint of the economic debacle in progress, were seeing their family finances redefined on a daily, sometimes even hourly, basis. The piece describes the struggles of these parents to impart to their children what it all means for their families, who up to now have only experienced the salad days. I mean, a lot of salad. Like a Rose Bowl-sized portion of salad. Get it? Okay...

So, while their parents worry about how to live on ONLY their 6 and 7 figure savings accounts and deal with... (more)

Sluiced In Mingus Musicality...

By Kim, published on Oct 10, 2008

... solos carried us out of San Pedro to perfect paradise.

The wonderful orchestra gave us the desire of our panting hearts with an encore; another memorable tune by Charles Mingus "A Song with Orange".

Oh Yeah...
