As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent, you asked for the latest party...

Me (spontaneously belting out the theme song to the 1985 hit sitcom ‘Growing Pains’): “AS LONG AS WE’VE GOT EACH OTH-“

3yo: “Don’t sing.”

Our children someday.

Photo: Ray holds up the Daily News cover featuring Milton Glaser's "I ♥ NY More Than Ever" design, a twist on his iconic logo revealed in the aftermath of September 11, 2001. Glaser updated his design by adding a smudge to the lower corner of the heart and the words ‘more than ever’. 

From an interview with Glaser at DesignBoom:

‘I love NY more than ever’, why a a variation of the icon?
The only subtlety is the wound, which is located on the lower ‘west side’ of the heart. The shaded portion represented the very area in lower manhattan where the once proud world trade center twin towers stood until a pair of hijacked passenger jets slammed into them. Showing a wounded heart is important. To attain healing, the first thing one must do is to acknowledge that there’s pain. Unfortunately the department of commerce seemed tepid to adopt this creation. That’s why I sent the new logo to the ‘New York Daily News’, which lost no time reproducing it and using it to wrap the newspaper. Close to a million copies of the logo circulated around the city, turning up on windows, lampposts and subway walls.

Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" tops riff poll

That riff makes me feel like I’ve been strapped to a conveyor belt on one of those industrial machine factory assembly lines, and the lick after "Wanna Whole Lotta Love" is when the buffing apparatus comes down and just rips the top layer of skin right off my body.

Fun list.

I have a Classic Riffs playlist of my own.

And of course the Brits had The Smiths in the Top 10.

Nine Inch Nails at Woodstock ‘94, 20 years ago today.

Love this set. I have a bootleg CD of the show from shortly after the festival. The audio cuts out in certain spots from the sound of the mud being slung onstage. Sin—>March of the Pigs is exhausting.
