Since this blog began twelve years ago, I have documented many moments. Lots of those have been Duran focused like the release of a new album or video. Some of them have been historical like an election or a tragic event. A few of them have been personal. This blog is going to be one… Continue reading The Silence Waiting to Fall
I am happy to report that I am, indeed, alive. A blog post is long overdue. I know. Part of me (a big part of me) wants to apologize but I’m fighting that.

Some of the posts have been video clips that were released then, merchandise that was sold to mark the occasion,… Continue reading Ten Years???
I apologize that this blog post is so late. It was not my intention but I have to admit that I’m struggling.
