“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
Working towards that number changes the way you see the world. Living in this crowded-crumbling, sexy-scary, crazy-noisy, feast-of-vision city surely helps a bit. Keep your eyes peeled and trigger-finger ready.

“When I was your age television was called books!” Peter Faulk neatly sums up the written word’s apparent fall from grace. Yes, the telly has of late been dating smarter girls. But there’s more than one way to peel a couch potato. Turn it off and turn the page.

“A film is more like music than like fiction.”
Indeed, they are birds of a feather– a murder of crows pecking away at yoga, politics and walks in the park to carve out a life of blurred vision, tinitus and narrow cultural vocabulary. That’s the way, uh huh, I like it.

Upstate State of Mind

A beautiful old farm house on 367 acres of rolling hills. The persistent rain has finally let up, brightening the country landscape. We are in the old open barn, where a decaying baby grand sits in a dusty corner by the window. Kev plays, the five of us sing Joe Jackson only nominally off-key. A butterfly rouses, opens up to the window light…

    Oh, how I’m itching to express how proud I am of you as I peruse your site! But that descriptor risks sounding condescending…. which is the diametric opposite emotion I’d like to convey. So instead, I’ll rip a page out of your once-upon-a-time, very old book and say, “Goddamn, were my 17 year old instincts impeccable when they lured you into being my first love!” In all seriousness, I am just thrilled that you’ve managed to pursue ALL your major passions – music, writing, photography – with such success in all. (I’m sure your other passions are equally as rewarding.) Everything on your page (and I’m just barely into it) brings such a big smile to my face as I see hints of the 19-20 year old you peeking out with each click. And of course, the fact that you are an ensconced Brooklynite is the cherry on the cake. :-)

    And Liana, I love your post! You were always an amazing mom – and Pat an amazing dad – so I hope you both take a bit of credit for the incredible guy who emerged from your home. I was crazy about both of you and will never forget Pat buying my first tank of gas when I got my first car :-) Hope you both are well!

The Go-Kartel Live @ Shrine, Harlem NY

In 2010, Brooklyn’s Hank’s Saloon hosted a shambling, lively set of songs by The Go-Kartel (Kevin Brady – guitar, vocals, “the dangler” accordion; Rob Grover – stoic yet jaunty bass, Bill Wyman-style; and Mauricio Carey – drums, boom, pah, pow!). The band rehearsed these songs for only seven years before unleashing them to an adoring and eclectic audience of both Manhattanites and Brooklynites. That’s mass appeal.

Last night, three years later, The Go-Kartel took the stage at Harlem’s Shrine World Music Venue, where Wednesday night is Rock Night. And Rock they did. The boisterous crowd was stunned to silence by the poppy opener “280-Z.” You could hear a pin drop. This was true, awestruck appreciation. But once the blistering “Carrie, I Don’t Mind” growled and cracked across the stage the crowd broke from their reverie into an applause wall of sound.

You like The Cure? Billy Bragg? Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello? Of course you do. Everybody does. And thusly, The Go-Kartel is liked by all. Composed of two dads and a rabble rouser, the trio brings Manhattan urbanity and Brooklyn credibility to a brand of pop that manages to be both fresh and nostalgic. And their taste in covers is simply superb. The band brings a wisp of the country to Elvis Costello’s rueful “Kid About It.” And on Burt Bacharach’s “Little Red Book,” they replicate the sound and spirit of a song that would ten years later serve as the template for The Cure’s “Killing an Arab.”

Towards the end of the set, fearless leader Brady tries to leave the audience wanting by cutting the set list down by one. But the road-wisened rhythm section bulldozed the idea in favor of one last bit of pure pop pleasure, the rousing and complex “Cannonball,” a song that took the band a mere 12 months to master. And with that last song, the audience was still left wanting. But I have a feeling we won’t have to wait three more years to get a chance to watch The Go-Kartel rock us out again…

The band has asked to thank sound man Lauren, along with the entire management staff of Shrine for their kind attention and all-pro back line.

    Such great shots! Wish I’d seen it and can’t believe I missed this one opportunity to hear my three great friends put on a SHOW. I will be at the next one NO MATTER WHAT.

Been Looking So Long At These
Pictures of You

Dear friends and loved ones:

Our wedding pictures are done, and by asking you to take a look, we’re not appealing to our sense of vanity, but rather yours. Albert got some great coverage – all of you are represented and you look fabulous! So take a minute to re-live the day by looking out for the ones that made this event so special: yourselves.

much love

    We all look at those pictures of ourselves a little longer… lets be honest, but vanity aside these are wonderful shots and a nice reminder of a great day!

Mau + Rach: Bye Bye Brooklyn, Aloha Hawaii, Part 2 – Makena/Hana

So we’ve switched gears from lazy lounge lizards to active island go-getters. We’ve migrated south from Lahaina to Makena, where we’ve kicked into high gear with our Sweet Blue Ride, a convertible Mustang that’s taken us far and wide across the island. Rachel’s swam with the sea turtles, we’ve sailed the deep blue seas, watched whales fly high above the water line, and twisted and turned along the Road to Hana, from it’s mundane beginning to it’s dramatic end. It’s been quite a ride. Take a look…

BTW, along the Road to Hana, we stopped at Waianapanapa, (say that one time fast) to witness a lava blowhole. Don’t snicker. It’s badass:
