A Stopgap Post (I've got chores to do)

Phew! The work week is finally done. I have a new review to write (here's a hint - go out and by Alden Nowlan's Selected Poems right now but right now I have some cleaning to do.

Tonight, I'm off to the Bloor to see Cadillac Records. I fell in love with early Chicago blues back in high school so I'm dying to see a movie based on that period. My house cleaning soundtrack today is going to be heavy on the Muddy, the Wolf, Sonny Boy and Little Walter.

Here's a taste of what's kept me hooked for almost two decades. I saw the harp player, James Cotton, at the Horseshoe a number of years ago. Even with a throat problem preventing him from doing much of the singing himself, it was an amazing moment. And his harp playing was superb.

I've actually been searching bookstores for Alden Nowlan poetry, but may have to order online. His poems read like stories, I love them, and can't wait for your review.
