We’re into the season of ferocious retailing, so in that spirit a few gift ideas might be appropriate.
My recent review of Tom Brokaw’s latest tome suggests it may be the right choice for friends of lukewarm intellect. Much better, at least for those who prefer acoustic music to journalistic yack, is the music of a band called Red Molly. Don’t worry — they’re not commies. They’re a Brooklyn-based female-only trio with angelic harmonies. They sing some Gillian Welch-type stuff plus originals and even the rare gospel number. I saw them recently and put up an action-packed account on my website (www.daveshiflett.com) or you can cut to the chase and hear samples of their music at www.redmolly.com.
in a few days i’ll post a fairly recent piece i did about a new toy craze: rollerblading jesus. It seems the End Times may be upon us.
