TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

I never felt magic crazy as this / I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea / I never held emotion in the palm of my hand / Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree / But now you’re here / Brighten my northern sky. / I’ve been a long time that I’m waiting / Been a long that I’m blown / I’ve been a long time that I’ve wandered / Through the people I have known / Oh, if you would and you could / Straighten my new mind’s eye.

I saw an article on my Flipboard that some are predicting tomorrow (Saturday) will be the end of the world. (If it’s true, there really won’t be anyone reading my Idelic Hour column!)

Hey man, I’m gonna side with the Jews and say it’s time to ring in a new year. I’m not really sure where we’re all heading, but I for one am going to continue putting out positive vibes. Yep, and the Idelic Hour is where I’m starting my day!

This week I found myself digging through crates for old soul records—some cuts more obscure than others. The goal, to lift hearts in solidarity with folks suffering harsh conditions in Mexico City, down south, and around the world.

Last week I traveled to Nashville and spent some great times with new friends—all musicians, all playing and singing their hearts out. My spirit was “revived” and THANK YOU to my friend the Uber driver who found me. Pinnacle Hill, Tennessee was deep in the woods and dark at 4AM.

I made my flight to Miami Sunday to be the best man for my 83 old dad. Son of a bitch finally married my step-mom of 26 years! RIGHT THE FUCK ON! When the Rabbi asked dad why after all these years they had decided to finally get married, he said it was simple—so they could look into the future with a sense of optimism. Bravo!

Shana Tova to all—and to you Daddy-O, rock the fuck on! XOXO

My dad finally re-ties the knot at 83. Rock on Daddy-O!
