Hey, that kid has a tree growing out of his head..what a lousy photographer!

I'd bet a fin that Lee did that on porpoise.

I know what you mean about this presidential campaign, I'm being devoured by it. It's an exhausting cultural mess.

My buddy regularly uses his Cello as a bass in pizzicato. I love it. Actually, the first time he did it, I was playing guitar and he whipped out the Cello..we came up with a nifty piece that we could never successfully recreate..a 6/8 number called "pizzicato in D".

If you've ever been in a small room with someone doing this, playing or plucking a cello...it's amazing to hear how much sheer volume these things produce, very powerful. Cool diddy on the viddy.

Mike: I can't imagine your obsession with the election now. With the endorsement of Obama by Colin Powell yesterday, the race is over. Even the bookies in the UK stopped taking bets.

Malcolm,
See, you just gave me a bad pang in ulcer #3. We've seen elections swing ten points in eight days, much less 18 days. George W. Bush was 7 points ahead of Al Gore in 2000 with 7 days to go and Gore won the popular vote by half a million. People lie to pollsters; people get confident their man is going to win and don't turn out; all kinds of things can happen. It ain't over till the votes are counted, the challenges are over, the underdog's conceded, and Michelle or Cindy (as the case may be) are busy picking out the new White House china pattern.

The election is all bad blood and soap opera at this point. Having grown up the son of a politician, I share your pain and enthusiasm.

I voted early and have attempted to stay away from TV and Radio media regarding the election as much as possible these past 3- 4 weeks. It's the finish line of American presidential elections that make me scratch my head and wonder how we have come to be the *richest* and most powerful nation in history.

I never know if I should be laughing or crying.

Mike, I would like to think that I speak for the majority of your readership when I say that I have absolutely no problem with your off-topic posts and that I actually enjoy reading them. If you're looking for a green light to post election-related thoughts, then I say go for it!

What the hell, it's only two more weeks, right? I think TOP readers would rather have OT posts than radio silence.

Mike,

I agree with Hoainam - I enjoy reading your posts, and I appreciate them no matter what the topic.

Best regards,
SteveR

It's a small world. I hired a fantastic group of jazz musicians to play at my wedding this past August. On drums: Mike Sarin.

"Mike, I would like to think that I speak for the majority of your readership when I say that I have absolutely no problem with your off-topic posts and that I actually enjoy reading them. If you're looking for a green light to post election-related thoughts, then I say go for it!"

So true. After all it's your blog.

You could even mention when you put up music posts elsewhere.

Please feel free to "maunder on about the weather, what animals I've seen lately, the peccadilloes of the locals, remarkable bits from my reading, what the dog did at the park, etc" but spare us from that bloody election! - we get far too much about it here (UK) already and it's not even in our country.

Cheers, Robin

As a longtime fan of both Erik Friedlander *and* Ken Vandermark, I approve of this post.

Thanks for the reminder to go listen to more music instead of obsessing about the election.

Why don't you just make a personal blog on the side to talk about your garden and dog.

Mike, I must confess I don't like when you go OT on the site but it's your hut, your rules. However, there's thousands of other places I can watch/read/hear the mudslinging by both camps. I come here to get away from that - my psyche is worn so raw that just the site of anything ObaMcCain makes my blood boil. I need to remember the quote by Robert A. Heinlein: "Don't ever become a pessimist... a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun, and neither can stop the march of events."
