Six Years of Watching

This past spring, I had a book come out with the same title as this column. This was mainly because a lot of the material in the book first appeared here. This sparked some questions at book signings and in interviews as to how long this column has been around.

Not long ago, I finished reading The Story of Joe Gould as told by Joseph Mitchell, a columnist at The New Yorker magazine from the 1930s until the mid-’60s. Living solely off his friends’ contributions to “The Joe Gould Fund,” he spent his days as an eccentric, drinking and interacting with the city’s pop society of the time.

As I looked at the calendar recently, considering the dozens of ways I might disappoint my wife on our 25th wedding anniversary this summer, I was struck by a rather startling revelation. I realized that the year we were married was the same year that I started writing about Cincinnati music.   

Feeling Old, Staying Young

Some days you feel new and invigorated, and on other days the world conspires to remind you how old you're getting. Barack Obama's inauguration and first week in office fuel the first set of feelings. This week's issue of CityBeat, in a strange way, makes my bones creak a little. Or maybe that's just the snow and ice. Our lead story in the Film section is a report from the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, the 15th consecutive year CityBeat has put coverage of Sundance on the cover — every January of the paper's existence.

Football for Cincinnati fans made a rare intrusion on January, which turned out not to be such a glorious moment. But well take it and hope for more next year, understanding that the interim poses numerous challenging scenarios.

In more than one interview, Pete Rose noted that he doesnt understand why anyone whos in the baseball Hall of Fame isnt a first-ballot Hall of Famer. After all, he said, its not as if the player became better in his second, fifth or 10th year of eligibility.

Proponents of the First Amendment and freedom of the press might want to think twice the next time they're considering popping into their corner United Dairy Farmers store for a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread.  

Barack Obama for President

As Election Day creeps ever closer, it's time for CityBeat to start publishing election endorsements and help those remaining undecided voters get their act together. Given our niche in Greater Cincinnati as a voice for progressive causes, we've recommended candidates and ballot issue positions since our founding in 1994 and take that role seriously.
