The legacy of CBGB further unwinds into nothingness with Target’s East Village appropriation

I try my best not to be too terribly sentimental about things. I understand that, no matter how much we might try to stop it from happening, everything changes. I know, eventually, everything wonderful and meaningful is destroyed and replaced. As I’ve discussed here before, though, there are certain things I find it difficult to […]

“What I have to Offer”… by Charlie Kaufman

I was on the brink of posting something just now that I wasn’t all that happy with. I felt as though I had to post something, and it, I thought, was good enough. I knew, though, as my finger was floating above the button that would have excreted it onto the internet, that it wasn’t […]
