hot prof

















Hey, check out this talk given by SmartyPants Univ. grad and friend of ACC&R, Professor Jamie Martel.. How cool is he anyway? Answer: Extremely cool. As NON TOUR readers know, ACC loves her some funny smart guys. And speaking of funny smart guys, footage of the talk is courtesy of funnysmartguy R, who attended Jamie's book-signing with co-worker LG(another SmartyPants U grad).
And speaking of being hot for teacher, in case u were wondering what's happening with Mary Kay Letourneau, here ya go.

special post 4 lindsay hutton













Not because i'm cursing him out, but because he LOVES swearing, and he's so good at it. He's a right fookin' wee bastard, that one. Bluidy hell he'll put his boot right up yer jacksie.

moondog slept here



















I had a room-mate in Bloomington who worked for CBS, and one of his jobs was to accompany the CBS acts while they were in town. One of these acts was Moondog, who, although brilliant, was very smelly.
I was visiting in Michigan during M-Dog's Bloomington shows so to cut down on tour expenses, without asking me, the room-mate invited M-Dog to sleep in my vacant bed.
I thought i smelled something "funny" when i returned to the apartment, but couldnt locate the source.
Took me shower, pulled back me bed covers, and saw that there was a crusty pile of dirt on me sheet and the smell that came wafting up was, well, awful.
The room-mate was totally unapologetic, he didnt see it as a problem. Sheesh.

breakfast of champions















Arugula, kumquats, fuji apple, tofu, avocado, olive oil and vinegar. Beats pancakes.
And speaking of champions, R had a dream last night about a song titled "If Your Dealer Had a Theme Song It Would Sound Like This."
And speaking of other champs, ACC had a dream last night that UKnowWho was singing a song just for her, and the hook was "U were my playmate, u gave me Italian ice cones." (some hook. -Ed.)
Then ACC and R woke up.

bird on a wire















Not2worry, this egret isnt really headless, he/she/it just had its head tucked away somewhere.
And speaking of things that r away, i wish indoor roller rinks would make a comeback. Dont u too, really? Just 4 the trippy sound quality inside them if nothing else.
I know, what a goyishe thing 2do, right? It sure is fun tho. Ol' ACC has spent many hours on those little 8 wheels.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy making a withdrawl from my memory bank.

two waisted


















Hello.
Raining! Thank God 4 the rain which clears out the smoke from all the wood-burning fireplaces around here,  smoke that dangerously pollutes the air.  Yesterday was the first clean-air day we've had since Thanksgiving. It felt freeing and fantastic to be able to go running in fresh air again.
And what's R been up to, other than listening to his room-mate cough? Check him out here.
Only one more day til Saturday...Portlandia!!!!!!!!

who is howard dean?








Watched IDES OF MARCH last evening. The movie's writer worked as a volunteer on various political campaigns, including Howard Dean's presidential campaign in 2004. I dont really know 2much about Howard Dean so after the movie R asked Siri "Who is Howard Dean?" Siri answered, "You. Have. No. Contacts. For. Howard. Dean. Did. You. Mean. Howard. Thompson. Or. Dean. Wareham?" Needless 2 say we cracked the fuckup.
And speaking of R, he's been taking driving lessons from yours truly. As Craig Leon would say, "That's our big event."
And how YOU doin'?

lou reed's loo




















Had a dream that ACC and HT were on a top-secret assignment to photograph Lou Reed's black glittery bathroom. But it was too dark in there to get any good pix, hence this facsimile. It was more glam than the pic above, everything was all glittery and sparkly and there were no white fixtures--everything was black.
We were speechless. Then ACC woke up.

hey kimba!

gawd i am SO portlandia














Dunno about u but i sometimes balk at buying yogurt because of the plastic packaging. Yes the containers r marked for recycling, but still, plastic is plastic. Then along comes the made in USA bpa-free Preserve toothbrush. Made from recycled yogurt containers, the toothbrush is packaged in a postage-paid mailer for the customer to use to return the used toofiebrush to Preserve, and it's recycled from there.
I have a fear of being faced with everything i've thrown away or "recycled" in my life. I dont want that pile to be as big as, well, as big the great outdoors. It can be hard being married to an environmentalist. Ask R.

appeal slowly and see















This just in, thanks 2 Brother Don.

me and him
















Spent some time at Ocean Beach today. There were alot of surfers, conditions were perfect. Sometimes i really miss living there. Looks like they love it there too. They're on the path in the dunes (2 blocks from A and R's old house on Anza Street) that leads down to the beach and the Great Highway. Here's what the Great Hwy looks like in the windy season which is kind of year-round. When the sand takes over the Hwy is closed to traffic and u can do this.
Everything west of 40th Avenue, and south and north of Point Lobos is so wide open with absolutely unlimited views and the air is clean and invigorating.
Oh. Almost 4got 2 recommend CONTROL. Pretty damn good. And pretty damn sad. A and R woke up sad the morning after watching it.

i'll always love ocean beach

backlit rich















And speaking of weird word combinations, here's a comment R got at his blog: "...balances an unpleasant satire throughout the mankind. Will the stuff cough above the bullet? The translator worries. The plaster gasps beneath the aging eagle. A house opens the smoker. Any risky thought defeats the funeral." Brion Gysin call the office please.
Almost finished with next song/video in the ACC cover project. Been trying to come up with a title. Any bright ideas out there?

steve albini's food blog




















Hello. Readers may notice that from time to time Steve Albini shows up here at NON TOUR. Sadly, i do it because mentioning his name boosts my hits like u wouldnt believe. I know i know, kinda creepy 2 do that. Well, today R found this and so for once my use is legit. Scroll down 2 the bottom to see Steve's explanation of the site.
His choice of a name for his blog is interesting...Hey Steve, if Mario comes after u one of these days, i know a good trademark attorney. Oh wait, u already know him. Keep up the good work, bruh!
Shout-out Bobby and Todd Shellac. Come hell or high water i hope i see u guys soon.
And speaking of cool guys, i just found this picture of Bruce Anderson when he was still down on the farm.
Hope u ppl r all ok. Love, ACC
