Guess the movie and win the game.

TIme for Jersey City, After Dark

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with SUZANNE VEGA!

What a great way to kick things off, really any song by Suzanne Vega but yes, indeed this one. 'Songs in Red and Gray' is the title track from her 2001 album and it's all you'd expect from her and more. Intelligent songwriting and spot on arrangements and oh that voice...

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with THE SMITHEREENS!

New Jersey representing on a beautiful summer night. 'A Girl Like You' from The Smithereens. Please turn the dial to louder.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with PAUL SIMON!

Johnny painstakingly used to put in really cool pictures of an artist or a band and make that image the iTunes default artwork. Desktop quality pictures rolling through of say U2 playing live or an old silly publicity photo. Maybe a picture or two from National Lampoon's Vacation for 'Holiday Road' by Lindsey Buckingham. You get the idea.

When this song came on a few minutes ago it had an accompanying image of Reese Witherspoon. Whoa. Imagine that. What do you suppose that means? It's crazy. Ah well, here's Paul Simon with '50 Ways to Leave Your Lover' putting a wrap on another Music Series.

We want to send our condolences to the families of Lolibeth Ortega and Lord Balatbat

We have their son, Lheandrew, in our best wishes this morning as well. Both Lolibeth Ortega and Lord Balatbat were killed yesterday in Virginia by a freak storm and tornado that tore through their campground. All three hailed from Jersey City and we wanted to let their families and friends know we were thinking of them and especially send the get well wishes to 14 year-old Lheandrew.

Hug your kids and family members every time they go out the door. Never be afraid to tell somebody you love them. Sadly there is no guarantee of them coming home as this awful story reminds us.

Late night open thread

It's kinda like hitting the lottery in reverse.

Time for Jersey City, After Dark

Down to the river at once!

Johnny just saw that Jersey City Jazz series has Carolyn Light gracing J. Owen Grundy Pier this afternoon starting at 12 bells and running until 2pm. It's a gorgeous day, there's a delightful breeze and it just feels like jazz by the river today.

Did you know then (most likely you did if Johnny is just seeing this on the Twitter) this jazz series goes on all the way through August. There's a poster and everything, right there.
