Palindrome (served with hot water, whiskey, and a touch of honey).

I turned 33 today. There are obvious age milestones... 16, 18, 21, 25... maybe 30. After that you seek solace in subtleties. For some reason 32 doesn't seem very old but 34 does. So right now I will find sanctuary in 33.


I had a magical weekend of musical adventures. On Friday night Adam's band, Secret Apollo, rocked the Honey Bee Hive for their CD release party. The place was packed and I had fun catching up with friends new and old. The band sounded incredible and the whole evening had a great vibe.

On Sunday I checked out Oakland-based band, The Hot Toddies, at the Whistle Stop. You gotta catch them if they visit your city. I enjoyed their show immensely and I can't use enough adjectives to describe their live set and their music. Amazing harmonies. Fantastic arrangements. Infectious songs. Great energy. Whimsical, irreverent, flirty, and thoughtful lyrics. I bought their E.P. at the show and have been listening to it non-stop. I can't wait until they release more songs and make a return to San Diego.
