Well, Monday and Tuesday came and went with out a single song.  Sadly, this was because  I cannot for the life of me find an online version of Emmylou Harris’s Green Pastures, a song that gives me chills every time I here it.  However, in honor of work as usual.  Here is the xx with […]

This morning I sat down with my coffee and did the old school newspaper read, no wires, no streaming ads, just plain black and white print on newspaper.   Today’s inky delight was the Florida Bar News, a fine publication full of short blurbs about the pseudo relevant.  The article that caught my eye, however, […]

Last night, I attended what I hope to be the first of many Online Bar Association functions.  Jorge Colon and Mayra Colon hosted a small get together at Sage in Hollywood.  Now generally, I have my aversion to “networky” events.  For better or worse, I tend to avoid these types of things like the plague […]

So I have been wanting to do this for some time.  Bijan Sabat, quietly my idol (if I ever were to be that sentimental), reminded me that being a professional does not mean that we should let go of our inspiration, our creativity or our expression.   And so with no further ado, I present […]
