Turned 73. They sold out the stadium here in Buffalo last year. I'm sorry I didn't go! What I saw on YouTube looked great!

Have pen--will travel.
Introduction
For better or worse, I am a professional pop culture buff. My interests in pop culture span the whole spectrum, from rock music to classic movies to classic television shows to pulp magazines and comic books.  Since there isn't much call for professional pop culture buffs, I'm also a freelance writer. I am the author and editor in chief (in fact, the only employee) of the blog A Shroud of Thoughts. I've contributed to Capper's Weekly, The Old Cowboy Picture Show, the online magazine Silhouette, and other small press publications. I recently published the book Television: Rare & Well Done. I am currently working on the book Imaginative Television.

As far as music goes, my favourite bands of all time are The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, The Monkees, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Black Sabbath, Cheap Trick, The Knack, The Posies, Queensryche, W.A.S.P., Monster Magnet, and My Chemical Romance. My favourite subgenres of rock music are power pop and heavy metal. Television is pretty much my field of expertise, so I have several favourite TV shows. A short list would include The Avengers, Danger Man, The Prisoner, The Saint, The Wild Wild West, The Monkees, The Addams Family, Crime Story, Profit, and Mad Men. I love classic movies and my favourite films include The Seven Samurai, Casablanca, The Apartment, Gone With the Wind, Quadrophenia, The Knack...And How to Get It, and, of course, The Beatles' movies. My favourite books include Wuthering Heights, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Lord of the Rings, Something Wicked This Way Comes, WeaveWorld, and The Stand. I am a huge fan of the pulp magazine heroes Doc Savage, The Spider, and The Shadow, and comic book heroes Batman and Green Lantern.

I am a total Anglophile and one of English descent at that. I am fascinated by English history and in particular those few brief, shining years that were the era of Swinging London. If one couldn't tell from my tastes in music, I love the British bands of the mid-Sixties. I also happen to be fascinated by the Mod movement, both the original one of the Sixties and the Revival in the late Seventies and early Eighties.

I must apologise for rambling on so long, but Google+ does not yet have a separate section for interests and the like!
