Blues & Muse of M. D. Friedman
Other / Poetry / Blues
should be a sweet one! First, a home
town f-r-e-e show with the ever evolving and always exciting Mojo Medicine Show this Friday
at the Cannon Mine Coffee in Lafayette. If you have never experienced MMS in action,
you have no idea of what you have been missing!
(Are you experienced?)
Here is where you need to go to get a taste: www.mojomedicineshow.com/audio.htm.
Then, Saturday night you can hear Johnny Johnston & Mad Dog at our favorite Fort Collin's
haunt, the swank and intimate Sonny Lubick Steakhouse. We have set bar records for our last two shows there, and are
hoping to rock a standing room only bar crowd again this Saturday night. (Get there early to get a seat in the bar.) No cover and great
drink and food specials all night long.
Thanks for supporting live music. It would die without you!

digital artist and web designer; he created a new genre of digital poetry that represents
the poetic fusion of all of his creative pursuits into one." Shelley

"...creative and unusual,
I liked the varied use of color intensity and positive and negative spaces. I was
struck by the masterful use of value. ..." Susannah Vandyke, 13th Annual Lafayette Community Art Show
We Reach is passionate, well-crafted, & deeply insightful poetry. [M. D.’s]
control of sound and language is excellent. … a particularly unique, very
powerful voice & set of insights as well…[His] understanding of the cross-connection
of the arts is both extraordinary & very, very moving" Jared Smith,
"The poem ... captures a dying mother's
fear, a grown child's memory of a key connection in the past, and a satisfying image
of inked generations. But the poem does not rest there: the final line holds the
combination of beauty and terror that lies at the heart of poetry." Veronica
