I feel very blessed to have been friends with you; you wise, funny, smart and lovely old soul.  : )

Will always be grateful for your calming influence when I started to get more than a little insane over politics and other silly things.  Thank you.  And thank you too for all the fun times talking about and sharing music. 

Really sorry we never got to have that beer and bull session.  Hopefully our timing and location will work out a bit better next time around. 

Wish I could be there in the too far north to celebrate your life with family and friends, but unfortunately, I’m a bit too far southwest.  Know I’m there in spirit though.  Love always…

And, of course, the music is also perfection.

Here’s the fully developed theme song, the gorgeous “Downton Abbey Suite”.

One of the great things about Breaking Bad is the cinematography.   I’ve never seen a more beautifully shot television show.

If you watch the show a bit, you’ll notice some very effective point of view shots.   In yet another example of why I love the internets, someone has thoughtfully created a montage of these shots for us to enjoy:

The latest album by Anders Osborne “Black Eye Galaxy”.   It’s bluesy, zeppelinesque, trippy singer/songwriter rock.  Lovely.  My fave album of 2012 (so far).

Here’s the title track:

This just makes me laugh like a loon.  I miss Ryan Dunn.  (NSFW language)
