Añejo Mockingbird

Used to be this place was mostly about music and pop culture, but it's slowly morphed into a launching pad for finding our foster greyhounds new homes. So be it. We love the hounds and are more than happy to use our modest little blog page to reach out and snag some attention for these greyt dogs... Oh, we'll still post the occasional odd music review or rant at the state of the Redskins from time to time, but they'll hafta take a back seat to the dogs 'til further notice

Music geek who appreciates everything from power-pop to indie-rock and most everything in between. I especially dig Reggae and its predecessor, Ska.

Ashes To Ashes, Diamonds To Dust

Syd Barrett, pioneering psychedelia artist, troubled genius, and Pied Piper for countless fans, passed away earlier this week due to complications from a multitude of illnesses, including diabetes and cancer. If you're any kind of Rock -n- Roll fan at all, you've been influenced by Barrett's contributions to music whether you realize it or not. There's more details - and more links - in my post over at Trees and Things.

Wish You Were Here, indeed....
