Back in Business

I'm back. Finally finished a huge project at work so there's time to catch up on all of the happenings from this summer. But where to start? Why not with this past Saturday.

Dan and Heike were in from Boston for the weekend. We hadn't seen them since a ski trip back in the beginning of the year. As we looked for an excuse to get together about a month ago, we considered seeing an opera at the Met but we decided on Arturo Sandoval instead. If you've never heard of him, he's a Cuban-born jazz trumpet player who was basically discovered by Dizzy Gillespie. He plays the keys a lot at his shows too, as well as some percussion.

The show was at the Iridium, a relatively new jazz club in Midtown Manhattan that I'd never been to before. We're actually headed back there in about a month to see Les Paul who plays every Monday night - not bad for a 93-year-old.

It's late, so I'll have to finish this story tomorrow but, rest assured, there was plenty of food to talk about on this night. Read Full Entry

Long time, no post

Hey everyone. I know it's been a long time since I've had the chance to post but, don't worry, Slopey Seconds isn't just another here-today-gone-tomorrow blog. I'm currently working on a major report but once that's finished, they'll be lots to talk about including the Sigur Ros show I saw last month and the Beck show I'll be seeing tomorrow night, both at the beautiful United Palace TheaterRead Full Entry
