Happy St. Patty’s Day!

St. Pat's is always a bit nostalgic for me.
I’ll always remember it as
the 5 days before Michio was born.

This year it was 20 years ago!

His portrait is progressing nicely.
About 3/4 done.

When I paint portraits,
I get the essence of the subject while painting...

Of course, I’ve seen Akio (his dad) in Michio’s face,
I’ve seen myself in Michio’s face,
and I even see some resemblance
from my sister’s and my mom as well...

But very strongly,
I am seeing John P. MacCarthy’s resemblance.
My late father.

He met Michio when he was a baby,
and he was so proud of him.
He passed on when Michio was still a little boy.

I was thinking how I wish my father was still here
to see how Michio
has grown up, and then, I saw the resemblance!
A real Lion King moment!

Michio will be 20 next Tuesday.
The same age my father was when I was born.
I have a picture of him & my mom holding me as a newborn.
I can’t help but notice the resemblance in Michio!

When the portrait is finally finished, I'll present it to Michio,
and I'll post it here.

We're the MacCarthy’s of County Cork, Ireland.
What does your Irish Clan Crest look like?

This Sunday will be the St Patricks’s Day Parade
in Tokyo.

Here is my St Pat’s Day iPOD list:

Never There - Cake

when we ain't at Sunday mass...
We'll look any man straight in his eyes and say:

Kiss My Irish Ass

-Great Big Sea

I've been painting,
and when I am in gear,
I am mindful of only the light,
and cooking dinner.

I'm still around, just preoccupied.

I've put together a "Night Club" iPod list.
I made a compilization of comedy bits
and straight ahead jazz, to represent
what used to be a night out
in a night club.

Lenny Bruce
is by far my favorite comedian,
and I thank God for his recorded material.
He died at 40, of a heroin overdose.

By his pioneering of words,
and his passion to keep the doors of communication open,
he paved the way for today's artists to
freely use words and language deemed in the past
as prurient, and "obscene".

Generally speaking, although there exists a freedom
for usage of "certain" words today,
unfortunately, most equate vulgarity
as the same as clever, thought provoking humor.

Lenny's stuff is hilarious;
I bust out laughing while listening to his "live" recordings while riding the train-
He made humor of the ridiculousness
and hypocracy that to this day, avails...

Here's my list:

Young at Heart - Frank Sinatra
White Collar Drunks - Lenny Briuce
Poor Butterfly - Zoot Sims & Joe Pass
Desafinato - Charlie Byrd, Stan Getz
Dykes and Faggots - Lenny Bruce
Violets For Your Furs - Jimmy Rowles
Samba de Suenho - Cal Tjader
The Phone Company - Lenny Bruce
It Had To Be You - Scott Hamilton, Bucky Pizzarelli
Thank You, Masked Man - Lenny Bruce
Off Minor - Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane
Marriage, Divorce, & Hotels - Lenny Bruce
Limehouse Blues - Chet Atkins, Les Paul
