who zat?

big pink(y)

Hello everybody. Shocking Blue sky, shocking pink house. Didnt u just love Shocking Blue? What a band. "HOT SAND, I'm walking on the HOT SAND."

And speaking of hot, it sure isnt, here in SF. As a very great writer once said: "There are no more sweaters;think warm thoughts."

This deer photo is naturally lit. Crazy huh?

Went to dinner at zazie on cole street, the menu featured lamb and rabbit. The way our waiter described both items was kind of excruciating, too visual, involving too much scorching and turning and flaming. Yikes. Uh, I''m having the lentil soup thank you.

Monday night is Dog Night at zazie's, so u get to see all the neighborhood dogs walk thru with their owners;there's a back-yard dining area. At BFF Rich's office, employees are allowed to bring their dogs2work. (HI FAITH.)

i wanna be your dog(photographer)

A good time to go to Sutro Park is after dinner, when you can see all the neighborhood dogs. After i took this picture, the dog's man thanked me. Why? I didnt know, really.

Current favorite clothing company...NO ENEMY from santa cruz. And speaking of santa cruz, yesterday we saw a bumper sticker that said HELP KEEP SANTA CRUZ WEIRD. I could live there, it's rockin'. Dont4get to visit the MYSTERY SPOT next time u r there.

Another must-see is george earth's house, the one he was in during the big EQ...he and his housemates had to jump out of a 2nd story window, because the doors were jammed and wouldnt open. It's funny to ride around sc with george...the tour talk goes something like this: "Oh look, that little shed there, that's where i smoked weed for the first time". And "See that store? That's where i used to score acid, from a guy who worked there. He used to get it for us." And "Oh my god, there's my school, and see that little alcove area? That's where we'd have our 'safety meetings' in between class." (HI GEORGE!!! LOVE U!!!!)

No tour or shows or anything...2 busy celebrating something special. :-)

life is just a bong of cherries

greens day

Hello it's me i've thought about u4 a long long while. Even thought about u while eating snax from Greens, in the car with BFF. Nice view too; Tiburon and Belvedere and passing ships. "yeah, it all looks real pretty from here." (so speaketh X-tal).

And speaking of views, what's the worst thing about oral sex? THE VIEW! You know how u hear a joke and years later u still remember it? When i told the joke to marty thau,way back in the late 1950's, his response was "I dont know what YOU'VE been looking at, but i quite enjoy the view."

me and my orange sweater

The ACC band was being interviewed on live radio in a mobile recording studio, set up inside a trailer on the festival grounds;we were in France or maybe Belgium. The 2 radio-station guys meant to ask about our song ME AND MY BERETTA, but instead called it ME AND MY UMBRELLA. They were embarrassed and felt bad about messing up on live radio, but we thought it was funny. The festivals are really fun to play, even tho all the hospitality food backstage has boiled eggs in it.

No tour or shows or anything...2busy trying to think of what it is im 2busy doing.

u sexy things

Hey ppl how's it goin'? Have u checked DEAN AND BRITTA's EU itinerary? Not TOO glamorous, eh? Barcelona, Paris, woo hoo. BFF Rich will be in NY for the BEA convention in june so he'll be able to see their Luna Lounge show on the 2nd.

Have u ever looked inside dean's suitcase? Every shirt has been crisply ironed, then neatly folded and placed just so, one on top of another. Every girl crazy bout a sharp-dressed man, especially when that man is also wearing a guitar.

And speaking of guitars, remember that song GUITARZAN? What was that about anyway? Was Tarzan a guitar-player?

No tour or shows or anything...2bizzizzy reading warning label on pharmaceuticals.

bay to breakers


Yup, that's right...naked guys running in the bay to breakers race 2day. This year, so many runners were on the phone..."Hello? Oh hi. I'm running in the bay to breakers right now. Okay, yeah, uh huh, okay. Bye." Click the pic to see slideshow.

Did u see phil spector on INSIDE EDITION? Yikes. I guess he is out of control. He doesnt seem 2 realize how he is appearing to others. What a wacko.

And speaking of wacko, a couple got married, and at their wedding party, for the first dance, they and a bunch of their friends performed the entire dance from michael jackson's THRILLER video. the dancing looked pretty cool and fun actually, all these people in wedding clothes doing the THRILLER moves, but it's kinda weird to play a michael jackson song at your wedding, dontcha think?

No tour or shows or anything...2busy facing west.

i always feel like...somebody's watching me

Hello. MisterNancy's grandma made this little creature for me. At first, i wasnt into it, and 4awhile, it ended up on the floor of my closet, buried under old Sister of Mercy tshirts and such. Then, one day i(finally) cleaned the closet, and as i started2put the creature into a bag of other stuff 2b donated to the local thrift store, the thing shot me a look, and i knew i couldnt, shouldnt, give it away. I'm pretty sure the creature was grateful. Relieved even. So here's where it stays now, in its own spot. Thank u MisterNancy, thank u MisterNancy's grandma.
