"Hollywood" J.J. Tindall

DUDE: righteous. "Steely Dan's music was smooth, sumptuous, and seemed aimed at a much older demographic than the one I belonged to at the time." As these things go, I go back to right where I was the first time I heard "Rikki," a friend's back porch; I was in junior high, they were in high school, getting older and pulling away. I sensed it then in a way that I now know. Great post.


Took his hacks and didn't get cheated. Good call using that phrase, Dan. Nice piece.
