This is such an awful year. Soon after learning about Leonard Cohen's passing we get the news that Leon Russell too has died. I consider myself fortunate that I saw him in concert earlier this year at the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival, and got a chance to meet him. He is certainly going to be missed.
I started the music blog to let people know about all the good music that is out there. I only review CDs that I like. (This is partly selfish, as I don't want to listen to music I dislike.) Good Things About Bad Movies is about finding something good even in the worst films.
I created an index, with a list of all of my blog entries, including Shakespeare entries and music reviews, arranged alphabetically by subject. Here is the link: http://michaeldohertyindex.blogspot.com/
My friend Jason and I have a web series, "Grandmother Winsome's Variety Minute," and several episodes are up on You Tube, and also on the Grandmother's Fanny Game blog. What else? I am fascinated by the Marquis De Sade and Elizabeth Bathory. I often make decisions based on the humor factor. And I would love it if someone bought me a giant raccoon or fox coat.
