Ten days ago, I wrote about a terrible hard drive crash. Approximately 500 GB of data was potentially lost forever, as this was one particular hard drive I did not get around to backing up. By plugging in the wrong cord, I thought I destroyed my hard drive, and all the information on it.
It was the kind of thing that really affected me deeply. I was extremely miserable, imagining that I lost big chunks of my documentary. I spent too many hours on this material, and it drove me crazy not being able to access any of it.

On July 4th, there was an awful accident in San Franciso when Roisin Isner, a 16 year old drummer for the band Tinkture, lost her hand because some moron threw an M-80 explosive into a crowd of people. Robin’s [...]
Yesterday, I witnessed some musical history.
Sly Stone has reunited himself, and performed yesterday in San Jose, California. For those that love the music of Sly and the Family Stone, it was the show we’ve been waiting for. The elusive, ever-secretive musical icom emerged from the shadows of his mysterious hideaways to play [...]
After I sent out a little bulletin about the historical significance of the 1956 San Jose riot to my friends on MySpace, I got a reply back from my pal Joey Myers:
Eric, I wish S.J. could claim the first R & R riot but it can’t. Cleveland Ohio beat us by 4 years [...]
July 7th is a big day in rock and roll, both in history past tense and history about to be written. For some of you, July 7th is very important because Al Gore will be using that day to present the big LIVE EARTH event that brings attention to the issue of global warming. [...]
