Things I Should Have Known

How did I not hear about this? Tarantino saved the New Beverly back in February. Granted, it's been over a year since I saw anything there and they need to lighten up on the grindhouse but that is some amazing (and underreported) news. Even a Google news search revealed just a few mentions of it. Almost as if it's entirely fictional. Next thing you know someone will tell me that Jon Bon Jovi is a genuinely decent philanthropist.

And why did no one tell me about the unreleased-in-the-U.S. post-Reed/Cale/Morrison/Tucker Velvet Underground album with the horrible cover called Squeeze

And why did I just learn that Super Pretzels are far tastier when prepared in the oven than the microwave?

And when was I going to find out that Monica was pregnant? News shouldn't travel that slowly from Wisconsin.

Enough complaining. I am enlisting your help. I'm trying to find an album that was released in 1987 or 1988. This is all I can remember about it:

I owned it on cassette.
It was by a man named Bill or Bob or Robert.
It was a sort-of-bitter (for it's time) break up album.
It was.... oh I remember the name of the album. It was called After Words.
By Bob Pfeifer, who, I'm surprised to learn, later became a record executive and was involved in the notorious Pellicano wiretapping case. Why did I not know that?

I used to know everything. I was on game shows.

Now? My head hurts. My eyes strain. I work late. I sleep late. I get to work late. I work late.

Enough feeling sorry for myself.

Time for some sunshine and informational reading on a Sunday. I have some catching up to do.
