Waiting with my young daughter in the lobby of a dingy Chinese takeaway joint, you were decked head to toe in gang colors and tattoos. As the product of an inner-city, I recognized the signs and pulled my daughter a little closer. As if reading my thoughts, you looked up and said, “Nice shoes,” jerking your head in the direction of my feet. “We got the same ones.” We both were wearing black suede Vans, only mine were more scuffed-up than yours. “Thanks, bro,” I said and apologized for my family-size order holding up the line. “No problem,” you said, “family first.” I agreed and left reflecting on how a person I eyed with suspicion brought up two things we have in common. I’ll withhold judgment next time.

Yvette is amazing! She is an incredible musician and talent.

I would definitely describe your music as guitar heroin so that’s an accurate headline

Wouldn’t it be great if the people who move in will have so much money that they can afford low-orbit travel to Europe for brunch, and make it back in time to attend a local art show and blow $100,000 for pieces of art to put in the housekeeper’s area. But I’m a dreamer. JOHN ELLEDGE VIA FACEBOOK

Why do music magazines always call riffs face melting? Anyone else ever noticed that? JUSTIN LEE BERNARDY VIA FACEBOOK
