Happy Hallowe'en (Week) -- and RIP Lou Reed October 27th, 2013

"When I was young and in high school, I wanted to play football for the coach...
The older guys said he's mean and he's cruel, but I wanted to play football for the coach...
Cuz' some day man you gotta stand up straight or you gonna fall and then you're going to die, going to die... "
-Lou Reed

One of the greatest and most uncompromising rock artists of the seventies period, and one of my old personal favourites, a true poet of rock, may you rest in peace Lou ...

"I'd like to send this one out for Lou and Rachel
and all the kids and P.S. 192, Coney Island baby,
Man, I'd swear, I'd give the whole thing up for you"

Coney Island Baby
