East Coast Gives Me the Willies

In beautiful Oakland/San Francisco, as one approaches midnight PST on New Year's Eve, the PBS stations have some local retro celebration with Big Band music, and even the network affiliates find some mildly traditional venue for the countdown. But here there's nothing local, so you are left with Times Square and a mass of prancing scruffoids pawing their guitars to uniformly ill effect.

Also, there was Carson Daly. I stepped away. Hey, Grinch. If there's room in your bag, stuff New Year's Eve in the EST in there, too.

What a pity they did not air Keys West annual "Drag Queen Drop" locally. It was on CNN though

Happy New Year.
