Wow...drove2Pacifica again2day with the surfer from NJ...stunning and stellar. And look at this car: Spicoli from Fast Times pulled up behind me in the parking lot, fired up a fatty, suited up, and headed out2catch some waves. Tried 2take his picture 4u, but couldnt see him thru all the smoke, and also, i didnt want2make him paranoid. But he WAS Spicoli. Look at his car-seats...turquoise leopard-print, just as ripped as he was/is/ever shall be/world without end amen.
So, no tour or shows or anything...2busy driving up and down the coast. Yeah!

Whoa Pete, we're gettin' fuzzy, mate. Yeah, I know. It only lasts for 5minutes, and it's very intense, like u may wonder if u died. So it's good2have someone with u, just to touch u, let u know that you're still there. And there dont seem to be any after-effects. Like right now, i feel very clear, very sharp. Uh, Ok.
So, yeah, met Pete "Sonic Boom" Kember and his friend Tom M on Haight Street. Very enjoyable. Shopped at Kid Robot, Sonical and Tom know all the artists and characters. BFF Rich bought a little cigarette character that is smoking a cigarette. Had snax. MMMMmmm i ordered marsala chai. Dammit it wuzz good. A stoner-friendly drink all warm and sweet and spicy.
No tour or shows or anything, too busy looking on amazon for a book on dmt.
This atm is at the farmers' market in san rafael. Gotta stock up on organic hand-made treats for NJ guest arriving tomorrow. Kettle corn, apple pie, chocolate-covered smarshmellows. He is a surfer, and at home in NJ in the winter, he has to wade thru snowbanks to get2his waves. Said dedication's what world needs2day baby. u know the noblest thing a man can do is to do the best he can. No sno here, bubba. Catch a wave and yer sittin on top of the world.
And speaking of Brian Wilson, he is performing at the Paramount theater in Oakland this week. Amazing, no? He studies the same singing technique as ol' ACC...Speech-Level singing. Go Brian!
No tour or shows or anything...2busy talking to Pete Kember on the phone. Meeting him on Haight Street at the robot store. bye.

Eat eat eat, that's all i do. Just finished dinner and already enjoying a big mug of hot rice milk with cinnammon, and raisin toast. And thinking about warm rice pudding that I'll have next week.
Guess what peoples? A patch of ice was spotted this evening on a sidewalk at the corner of Sunset Boulevard/Kirkham St. And there was frost in our back yard this morning. It sounds like im gonna segue into a joke whose punchline is: "Yeah and if u dont get some spring in your ass, we'll be here til fall",but i'm not.

This is a sign outside the front door of the Chinese Swatow Christian church on Irving Street in SF. Can i get a amen up in here? The church used to be the Surf movie theater, back in the day. It had the cutest neon sign whose blue light relected in the store windows across the street, which i could see from my bedroom window at night. Saweet. I tried to watch the Dennis Hopper film AMERICAN FRIEND there at least 3 times, and every time i fell asleep. There were these over-sized comfortable seats, and well, it also could have been the talwin, which i LOVED. Is talwin even around these days?
Anyway, no tour or shows or anything...2busy preparing for a daytrip to Inverness tomorrow. Bye u all. x0x0

It was swell to spend time with CraigandCassell this afternoon. Things were zipping by so fast...like sparks! Sparky! Brilliant! As Craig would say, "GENIUS!" Cassell looked beautiful and bewitching as usual. Funfunfun. We hadnt seen each other since making White Courtesy Phone in 1995. Well, BFFRich saw them once in NY but i wasnt there.
And speaking of BFFRich, that's his shadow u see, holding the camera up high. Rich, I'm sorry u didnt make it into the pix; hard2squeeze 4 ppl into a shot. :-(

XTAL, an sf band (whose singer/gtr-ist was a cross between lou reed and neil young)used to do that gill scott heron song, winter in america. Wow i used2love them, and wow were they retarded;just fantastic. And speaking of retarded, uh, er i mean, speaking of FANTASTIC, i am on the phone right now with mister nancy kravitz, bass player in the original angel corpus christi band. She just told me that her current band is so lame that they cant even schedule a final practice to break up at. Some of them know someone is quitting, but not everyone knows.
Nancy was great in the acc band, really great. She introduced herself2me by propping her breasts, clad in a black leather halter, on the ledge that separates the seating area from the dance floor at the warfield, and said "You need a bass player in your band." SOLD! ha ha she was so cute.
Anyway, no tour or shows or anything...2busy anticipating upcoming visit from craig leon and cassell webb!
