Happy Trails to Mind Your Biscuits

The Breeders’ Cup is in a few days, and soon I will see one of my favorite horses race for the last time. I first heard of Mind Your Biscuits when I was at the Winner’s Circle OTB in 2016, a month before the Derby. As usual, I was at the bar watching Aqueduct before…

Biological Phenomenon by Bow Wow Wow

My favorite instrumental. It reminded me of bicycling around Orange County. Or at least biking carefully and walking the bike up hills in Newport Beach. It evokes surf and spaghetti Western. I was going to name my blog “Theological Phenomenon” as a homage, but my blog was too general for that title. That and I…

Love Peace and Harmony by Bow Wow Wow

This is the US version. I remember listening to BWW during my studies at Concordia Irvine. Their music helped me through difficult episodes. After that, I would occasionally listen during my years with Preggie. When I settled in Kentucky, I wanted to play Bow Wow Wow all day. To hear this song on the way…

Higher Than The Sun by Primal Scream

Here is a piece from the early 90s, an extended version of this Primal Scream song. It’s pretty much about tripping balls to the point of experiencing higher consciousness. This version is much better than the radio edit– not rushed but a sensual stream of sound. The problem with this song is that any adult…

WhoMadeWho: Inside World (Detone Mix)

Whenever I get ready to attend a stakes race, I would dress up to this song.  It especially works great with the Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream.  The weather, the sunglasses, that certain mood.

When I Die by Lush

A widow like me tend to think of her husband often, and I dreamt I saw him again, in his prime. Alas, it’s only a dream. He looked much better in his clerical collar and his mind was sharp like a tack. It was a far cry from his last months. He hugged me and…

Dark November by the Pandoras

Every November since the 1990s, Rodney Bingenheimer of KROQ would play that song at his radio show. This was Paula Pierce’s magnum opus, her last demo before her death in August 1990.

My City Was Gone: Return to the Valley

I’m in the Valley to see my younger brother get wed. I am happy to say that the girl he married is lovable and decent. The ceremony was beautiful. But this whole time I am here, I felt alien. Who wouldn’t? The areas that I grew up changed for the worst. Graffiti on ageing stucco.…

Belmont 2016: Weep No More

View post on imgur.com Saturday afternoon, I told my bosses about being nervous over my picks, especially choosing 13) Creator as my pick. They told me it’s alright and it’s the nature of the game to make incorrect guesses. As long these guesses are informed guesses, it’s no worries. A lady won a 500 dollar…

Flashback Paper: Why Should the Fluffy Have All the Good Music?

Cleaning out my room, I’ve found this on a forgotten flash drive. It was for the final class I took at Ivy Tech, a college writing class. I thought my AP grade would excuse me from this general requirement. Nope. So I ended up in this class. I was pleasantly surprised at how I enjoyed…
