About Me

My photo

I'm the co-host of THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO with Dana & Carl (Sunday nights, 9 to Midnight Eastern, www.westcottradio.org).  As a freelance writer, I contributed to Goldmine magazine from 1986-2006, wrote liner notes for Rhino Records' compilation CD Poptopia!  Power Pop Classics Of The '90s, and for releases by The Flashcubes, The Finkers, Screen Test, 1.4.5., and Jack "Penetrator" Lipton.  I contributed to the books Bubblegum Music Is The Naked Truth, Shake Some Action, Lost In The Grooves, and MusicHound Rock, and to DISCoveries, Amazing Heroes, The Comics Buyer's Guide, Yeah Yeah Yeah, Comics Collector, The Buffalo NewsThe Syracuse New Times, Big Stir magazine, and AHOY Comics.  I also wrote the liner notes for the four THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO compilation CDs, because, well, who could stop me?  My standing offer to write liner notes for a Bay City Rollers compilation has remained criminally ignored.  Still intend to write and sell a Batman story someday.

Ten Questions

Although this is just a random set o' 10 pop culture questions, Question # 7 is a SPOILER for the events of Batman # 50, which was published this week. You have been warned.

1.  What if it turns out that it isn't what it is?

2.  Is the slogan "Aren't you hungry for Burger King?" dirty? Howzabout "Have it your way?"

3.  If time is a harsh mistress, can we presume she's also a lousy kisser?

4.  Has a woman ever slapped Captain Kirk for suggesting he'd like to boldly go where no man has gone before?

5.  Why are people in Metropolis so pumped to look up in the sky and see a bird or a plane?

6.  If the walrus was Paul, is the walrus mustache David Crosby?

7. Can one return wedding gifts without a receipt in Gotham City? Asking for a friend.

8.  Did James Brown devise a 12-step program for getting on the good foot?

9.  Why must we constantly be asked to choose Ginger or Mary Ann?

10.  If The Who are on first, do they have to pay royalties to Abbott & Costello?
