Miss Part One? Click here

There were only 4 responses to my request for comments favouring a Part 2 concerning the 2019 AMAs, 3 of which half-heartedly clamored for one (probably because they are nice people and thought if they didn’t it would hurt my feelings), and the 4th from an old friend and fellow scribe/music hostage/old guy complaining about how impossible it is to read these columns because of the white words and black background.  The words are actually light grey and the black is called “Midnight Black”, but try as I might (and believe me, I’ve tried), it can’t be done. AND, If I change it, 2500 columns will be affected and look like poop, so, sorry Richard. Also, having Glaucoma makes reading black print on white difficult for me, producing headaches and the occasional sneezing fit, so …I will send my friend a copy of the book when it’s finally done, which will be black on white, but with not many pictures, because other than my own personal pictures, the pictures I use in these columns I swipe from other sites and some want me to PAY for them! I mean, really …have you EVER?

Now then …where were we ….?

Bob Explains Why the American Music Awards Were So Darned Magical

So rarely does an Awards Show come along that enthralls as well as entertains, educates as well as enlightens, and stinks up a room less than a Tour Bus full of Used KFC Buckets, 2 Weeks worth of Green Day’s unwashed sweaty stage socks, and the urinal odor of R. Kelly’s bedroom, but this year’s AMA’s managed to do just that.

Not by much, really, but still ….

Hello.

How have you been?

I have been up and down like a newlywed couple on a waterbed.

I have been swamped, smothered, over-run, -whelmed, and -worked, by bugs, buds, business, bullshit, and buttheads.

I have experienced high-highs and low-lows, because Life is NOT a Highway …Life is a Rollercoaster.

Segarini – Three Top Tens

Posted in Movies, Opinion, Television with tags , , , , , , , on May 11, 2019 by segarini

It’s a beautiful Spring day. The birds are chirping, the bees are pollinating, the  irritated bowel syndrome is nowhere to be seen, the rent is paid, the hair is shampoo’d and conditioned, lunch awaits my ravenous appetite, celery prices are dropping, my SmartShare is working, kittens are amusing people all over the world, overpaid plumbers display their butt cracks with impunity, women are buying sundresses, you can still buy real meat, Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives has been renewed for another 70 years, Mothers get their yearly day tomorrow, and the ONLY thing missing from your perfect day …is THIS.

I am surrounded, lady-rounded and all the little roundeds by music and rhythm…..whether it’s listening to the 600+ songs my phone shuffles through, pounding a beat on my steering wheel, hearing the thumpa thumpa of somebody’s sound system as they cruise past, wending my way through a nightclub, wearing headphones and walking to the beat, banging on my drums or simply humming the tunes that run through my head. Music….always a part of my life, always with me, I have become increasingly aware of how much it affects our lives. I’m not going to get into the science of it, suffice to say music has a very large impact on our well-being, especially our brain and our heart’s well-being.
