Hello, hello, hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers! Guy Hogan is my name and blogging (and karaoke) is my game. You are reading the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, the City of Pittsburgh’s only online magazine of culture for adults only.
The beautiful weather continues in The ‘Burgh. Today there will be a mix of clouds and sunshine with a high around 85 and the possibility of evening showers. Yes, I’ve been getting in a lot of walking. I’ve been doing my deep breathing, flexibility and stretching exercises religiously (every morning except Sunday mornings) and I’ve been listening to the songs by The Doors (on YouTube) that I’ll sing for karaoke next month in Little Italy (at Nico’s the first Saturday night of June and at Sonny’s Tavern the first Sunday night of June). I’ll start off with “Hello I Love You” at Nico’s, a song by The Doors I’ve never sung in public before.
Wish me luck…
Yes, I’m looking forward to getting back on my regular beat in Little Italy next week and that first beer of the new month at Armand’s Wednesday morning…
Yesterday was Pam Grier’s birthday. She’s 67 years old. Happy birthday, Pam Grier. This is what Wikipedia has to say about Pam Grier.

She became famous in the early 1970s after starring in a string of moderately successful women in prison and blaxploitation films like The Big Bird Cage (1972), Coffy (1973), Foxy Brown (1974) and Sheba Baby (1975). She starred in Quentin Tarantino‘s film Jackie Brown, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress.
