last night we took a walk in the park










Hello.
Last night, after walking around in Sutro Park during the golden hour, A and R came home, opened the windows, flopped down on sofas, and listened to more live acts playing at the Outside Lands Festival. Pearl Jam ended the night with "Keep on Rockin' in the Free World." The crowd sang along to most of their songs.
Rode bikes in Golden Gate Park this a.m. looking at the different stage areas. It was morning still, so no one was on stage yet, but did see 2 guys sitting under a tree who looked like they had decided to take their entire weekend's worth of drugs all at once. And saw a long-haired guy at the Ocean Beach end of things walking barefoot, with a green toothbrush in his mouth, carrying his sleeping bag. R said "Remember that?"
Yeah yeah i remember.
Have u noticed this? And how long has that been up there?

gimme a head with hair













Hello

Y'all like my feather duster hairdo? That's what Caroline Peyton's mother would say after she'd been to the beauty parlor. Only with the southern accent, so it sounded like "fetha dusta haado." Anyway, a recent visitor to the Stimboleum had big hair and i was inspired to get going on some big hair of my own.
No tour or shows or anything..2busy watching that link at the earlier post today.
And how YOU doin'?

Hello

And speaking of MX-80, remember their song "TV Makes Me Cry"? Jeez, just now i saw a Stones performance on an old Ed Sullivan show and got a big lump in my throat.(Ooooh. Ed.)
Googled "accordion glitter" looking 4 a picture of a sparkly accordion, and here's what i found. Is that really Gary Glitter? Google says it is.

just me myself & i























Hello.
R is away 4 a few days, and sometimes when that happens, i end up(Ooooh. Ed.)watching crummy tv at nite, which can b depressing. Or at least confusing. Last nite i watched some World Wrestling Entertainment, which apparently is a form of family entertainment. The rabid audience was huge, HUGE, with young sons being hoisted up on their fathers' shoulders 2 get a better view. It was scary that something so stupid could b so popular.

And speaking of big guys in a ring, b4 R up and hot-footed it 2 Portland, we watched the James Toback film "Tyson", which was fascinating and maybe even spellbinding. I'd never seen a Tyson fight, and the fight footage really blew my mind. Tyson was like a forward-moving tank, his feet and legs digging into the mat. Click here for out-takes. R and i recalled seeing the Barbara Walters interview with Tyson and the evil Robin Givens while we were on our honeymoon on Sanibel Island;part of that interview is included in the movie. Honk if u love Mike Tyson.

Then 2day i felt kind of sad when i saw a Cialis commercial whose song was Be My Baby. What's wrong with me?

And speaking of funny tag lines, guess what? The ol' A&R Report may soon be online!! Honk if u find this exciting!! Well, WE found it exciting anyways. Stay tuned, all u clamoring readers.

No tour or shows or anything...2busy counting the hours.

Talked 2 George tonite..he was driving the LA freeways. He's playing gtr (or theramin or bass or maybe acoustic whistling) on the up-coming(Oooooh.-Ed.)Acc project. I know, i know, it's been "up-coming " for a few years. So sue me.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy easin' on down the road.
