Music Monday: “Walk This Way” By Run-DMC With Aerosmith

So I’ve been watching Luke Cage and the show and cast and music all kick ass. I’m not done yet, so no spoilers.

I don’t remember seeing any Run-DMC references yet, but they were almost certainly my first exposure to hip hop and rap (pretty sure they were also my first exposure to Aerosmith, but that’s neither here nor there).

I’m loving the literary and musical references that I’ve caught in the show, and I’m sure there are many more that are beyond my experience and are flying over my head. I can’t wait to finish the show so I can start digging into some of the things I’ve missed but also because it’s just that damned good. Right now, I’m enjoying it more than either Daredevil or Jessica Jones and I loved both of those shows.

See-saw swingin’ with the boys in the school
With your feet flyin’ up in the air
Singin’ hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin’ like you just didn’t care

Write on!

Music Monday: “Back In The Saddle” By Aerosmith

It’s felt like forever since I’ve launched a book, but really it’s only been two years since Tombstone Blues released (okay, that is forever in today’s book market) but now it’s only three days until Too Far Gone launches. In any case, this week will be spent shining up the shoes, hoping the jacket still fits, and wondering what in the hell I’m going to say before I start the reading (at current writing, I’m still wondering what in the hell I’m going to read)…so situation normal, I guess.

I’m back
I’m back in the saddle again
I’m back
I’m back in the saddle again

Ridin’ into town alone
By the light of the moon

Write on!
