You Can Hear The Captain Shouting

New York used to be a place, hell of one. You came from there, or moved there, or got stabbed there. Lotta stuff could only be found in New York.

    Guess I’m not the only one who liked “Pretend it’s a City.”

    On an unrelated note is it weird to crush on a 78 year old lesbian? Asking for a friend.

    Nice tribute to Mr. Sylvain. Arthur Kane’s book is a hoot.

    I interviewed Syl for the Albany news mag in ’97, I think it was, when he was touring a solo album. He was funny and lovely to talk to. RIP.

        (And if you’d asked me 40 years ago to bet which one would be the final survivor, David Jo would not have been my pick . . . )

    Got my NYC stripes from ’75-’87. Wouldn’t trade them for the world.
