Real Music & Real Estate . . .

Yiddishe Cup’s bandleader, Bert Stratton, is Klezmer Guy.

He knows about the band biz and – check this out – the real estate biz, too.

You may not care about the real estate biz. Hey, you may not care about the band biz. (See you.)

This is a blog with a gamy twist. It features tenants with snakes and skunks, and musicians with smoked fish in their pockets.

Stratton has written op-eds for the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Washington Post.



I’ve been into computers since the punch-card days. I can talk RAM and bytes, and byte me. But I won’t tech-talk here.

I had a baby-boomer friend who cried whenever he had computer problems. He would call me in tears. He literally would be rolling on the floor in pain. I was his fix-it guy. Sometimes it was just a matter of rebooting the computer.

In the 1970s I had a cellphone as big as a shoebox. I golfed a lot and schlepped that James Bond cellphone. Blew people’s minds. I worked for Motorola for a year. My kids call me for computer help.

Let me know if you have any problems.

I couldn’t care less about the “fake” identification. I think you’re faking the “fake” and I’ll be calling you and suggest others do too! If you didn’t want to be bothered, Bert. you simply shouldn’t have bragged about all your expertise and years and years of experience! Please expect to hear from me soon, and I hope from others too. Thanks for posting. this.

I do remember punch cards when I was taking a computer course at CWRU in 1972. Using Newton’s method for solving the square root of 2. One card out of place and you were screwed.

You probably should change careers and go into IT full time. Enough is enough with the music, already, and it’s time to awaken and then share a new passion. You certainly don’t need all the apartment “tzurus” and you already lost Irwin anyway….
