I searched for "Whisk(e)y when I'm dry." The last verse of "Heaven when I  
die" is too common, and the other verses change too much.

Shortcuts: I hadn’t heard much of James "Son" Thomas before the release of  
Beefsteak Blues" (Evidence 26095), sessions originally recorded between  1980 
and 1985. He’s got a gentle voice that sometimes rises to a sweet falsetto.  
The thing I like best about this pleasant journeyman is his self-penned epitaph: 
 "Give me beefsteak when I’m hungry/Whiskey when I’m dry/Pretty women when I’
m  living/Heaven when I die." …

WHERE DID BARRY POPIK EAT?--El Cantinero. It's the best Mexican I've  ever 
had in New York City...in Greenwich Village...on University Place...between  
11th and 12th Streets. Definitely the best of that lot. 
WHERE DID BARRY POPIK _NOT_ EAT?--Au Bon Pain. I'd like to try  "hot 
chocolate" as I've tested NYC places for "French onion soup." Au Bon Pain  has a new 
product called "Choco Bon Loco." (I guess that's French.) I was  going to try 
it. "It's not like hot chocolate," a worker told me. It's four  dollars, and 
they fill up half the cup only, all with undrinkable sludge.  Thank goodness he 
wasn't on commission and was honest! 
perhaps? No way. The most important story in the world, according to  the New York 
Post, is that Mike Piazza is marrying a woman. It's now made  the front page 
twice in about a week. Is it any wonder that I have to beg the  entire world 
for thirteen years to honor the black stablehands who called New  York "the Big 
Apple"? Well, it's off to parking tickets on Monday, and they  usually shut 
down the place over the weekend, so Mondays we have no  heat...
