Comments

ps: the sophomore Severe Severe album is out this week too! You can get more details at www.severesevere.com

I would almost fly back to Albany to see Times New Viking. They are the toppest notch.

Great idea! I like the week ahead posts a lot; this should be another useful weekly feature.

Huh. I was at the print shop when the man was making up the posters for Times New Viking. Small worlds, etc.

The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.

The way the light hits the State Ed. building in the evening. It shines just through Alfred E. Smith, the LOB, and the Capitol and catches the corner columns in this orange glow. I don't know why, but I just find it stunning.
