Welcome to The Outpost — a bit outside of town, and definitely off the beaten track. For a similar perspective, check out Bob Dylan’s “Desolation Row”. You remember Desolation Row — it’s just a short way down the road from The Outpost. Dylan’s Sugar Baby comes from the same place but on a cosmic plane.
The Outpost has existed in several incarnations, including a song, a radio program and now this web page. In any event, The Outpost is where we observe… “Lucifer’s motley minions, Gabriel’s holy host … Passing in parade as I look out from The Outpost.”
Used to be, I delivered these on the radio (WMBR, 88.1 FM, Cambridge/Boston and elsewhere) and then put the text here on the web. Turns out the web part is a BLOG, and everybody’s doing it. Who knew. Maybe I should give it up. Sometime.
For now, this is a convenient format — for me, and hopefully for you. You are even welcome to comment — something the old formats didn’t handle too well.
