short stack














Finally alert. (Well, that's debateable. -ed.) Here r my 'cakes from yesterday's brunch at greens.
If u want 2 find me next sunday, that's where i'll be, with my bff rich, who eats eggs. Literally. I mean, I'm not saying he's an "egg-sucker." What kind of put-down is that anyway, 2call someone an egg-sucker? Sounds like from the cowboy days or something, like "u sidewinding low-down double-crossing varmint of an egg-sucker."

No tour or shows or anything...2busy sitting on the couch in the sun next 2bff rich.And how YOU doin'?

light christmas

light christmas
Hello. It's not so easy to find chrishmish decorations in the City. For quite a few years, residents on masonic avenue in the haight were really pro-active with their decs, but not anymore i guess. So we drove around pacific heights and found these. Click the pic then click slideshow.

My yoga teacher had a dream i went back on tour. Phew! THAT was close.

Hope you've been reading the popwars blog(look at links list);i like it alot and i think u will 2. (Honk if you're wearing flannel-lined jeans!)

pinky's christmas












Santa better start haulin' ass, the chrishmish clock is winding down. And speaking of the clock winding down, 4 the first time in my life, i failed2 acknowledge the winter solstice. I'm sorry.

And speaking of Satan, er, Santa, listen2this: at walgreens, a check-out person said "merry christmas" to a shopper. The shopper said "i'm jewish, i dont celebrate christmas". And the dumbass check-out person said "Oh! U dont believe in god?" Guess who SHE's voting for? :-(

cry baby













Hi. There couldnt be a higher compliment for a songwriter than when a fan is brought to tears while listening;that's when u know your stuff is working. A and R got a call yesterday from this listener in Portugal who cried while listening to STILL FEELS LIKE CHRISTMAS.

It is kind of strange to b snow-free at christmas-time. During the above-mentioned teary call, A and R were reminded of a christmas they spent in santa monica, riding bikes along the beach promenade in the warm sunshine, the palm trees over our heads. It was beautiful, sure, but it just felt wrong. So anyway, if u r listening and crying, give us a call!! Send us an email!!

it can happen 2u

Jeez y'know how u see these old ladies walking down the street in the daylight and their rouge is applied like two bright red clown-circles, one on each side of the face and the lipstick is going all over the place etc. Well 2day i bought what i thought was black eyebrow pencil at walgreen's, went back home, and put some on. I thought it looked a little funny, but since it's impossible2apply eye makeup while wearing glasses, i couldnt really see what i was doing. Later on i puts on me glasses and whoa! I looked like one of the afore-mentioned ladies!

dreamin' like i'm martin luther king













Hello again. Had a dream that Stan Goman hired me back at tower records in sam fram, but he didnt tell me what my job was. Someone played a slow song and stan and i danced in the back and some of the old regulars were there saying "awww", and "ohhhh".
Then we all went out into the parking lot to watch a series of small kangaroo fights, a promotion for something or other(Jump by Van Halen? -ed.) I miss stanley; he is one of my favorite ppl ever. Click here 2 see what he's doing lately.

sand dollar dude




















Hello everybody. Saw my favorite Ocean Beach artist today, the Sand Dollar Dude, working outside the Cliff House. He and his partner Sarah make beautiful magnets, necklaces and chrishmish tree ornaments from sand dollars. No living dollars r harmed;only the skeletal remains r used. Each one is cleaned, then colored with wine, coffee, tea, or fruit juice, then baked to the hardness of a ceramic. No two sand dollars r the same to begin with, and after the coloring and baking they become even more unique. I love sand dollar dude! His work is also available upstairs at the Beach Chalet on the Great Hwy in Sam Fram, and at Sirens in Pedro Point, a great store right on the beach in Pacifica.

dean baby dream











Whoa! Had a dream last night that dean wareham came to pick me up to hang out a little, drive around town and stuff. We were in the car on Broadway in Sam Fram, and came upon a gigantic construction site, kinda like a busby berkeley meets dw griffith scene. So we gets out and we's watching all this big equipment (oooh) and i look down at myself and see that i am wearing only underpants. What? I ask him "is this what i left the house in?" and he nods yes. Then i ask him "why didnt u tell me?" He just gave me a vague, sly dean wareham kind of smile and went back to looking at the little screen on his phone. (Then A woke up.)

how 'bout those niners?

Hello sports fans. Hello light-deprived ppl (sunset was at 5:08 pm "tonight"). Have u noticed how it's acceptable now to make up words as u go along? No one seems to question it when it happens, ppl seem 2 be able 2 go with it. At my food co-op this afternoon, a stack of paper bags fell over and one of the gals working there said (use heavy cali accent) "whoa! a bagalanche!"

If i were as diligent a listener and recordist as dean wareham is, i'd have a special little notebook just for collecting all these new words. Check out dean and britta's tour dates...so glam.
