It was April 1970 and I had camped out for two nights to get tickets for The Who's Final Performance of "Tommy" at the absurdly ostentatious and downright silly venue, The Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.
I have been there watching "24" since its first hour, and now, I will be there when Jack Bauer hits the road this year too. In appreciation for all that entertainment/patriotism/torture, here's one fan's loving playlist.
I may not even remotely agree with the Tea Party Movement's point of view, but I will still fight to the death for these American's Constitutional right to have some good tunes at their victory party. Okay, maybe not to the death.
Each UnBoss episode is to feature a corporate big shot going "undercover" to work with the company clock-punchers. Take away the faux socially responsible trappings and it's an odious exercise in noblesse oblige.
I shared a panel with MSG President Scott O'Neil. The audience wanted to know if the Knicks will sign LeBron. O'Neill said Knick fans are going to be very very happy for the next decade. Take from that what you will.

I just read here that Rep. Michele Bachmann is hosting a very special tea party at the Capitol today. I'm sure it will be a lovely affair, so I wanted to send along this playlist for Congress' hostess with the mostest.
The Woodstock organizers were in it to make money, but it didn't quite work out that way (not for lack of trying), and two things were definitely in their favor: they had a great idea and knew their audience.
