ACC and R went to a sweeet party the other night at the Low Tide Club in Sausalito, generously hosted by owners Joy and Matt. Rice and gumbo! Booze! Electrified driftwood! And, of course, girls in bikinis.
Come check out Joy and Matt's booth at the Headlands Center for the Arts 30th Birthday Party September 15th.
Still no tour or shows or anything...2busy staring into space.

Drove BFF Rich to Sunnyvale last night for another of his brilliant talks at the Patent Library. Audience members r asked to fill out an evaluation form at the end of the speech and i noticed that on the back of one of the forms someone had doodled "He funny".
And speaking of driving, just came across this picture which reminded me of taking long drives in Michigan in the 70s. Back then u could get these cute lil speed pills called White Crosses and i had eaten a bunch and smoked some hash, and all of a sudden, right in the middle of the highway, up sprung a huge structure, like a giant erector set. (Heh heh, u said "erector") Thank G-d that shits was just an hallucination, and i drove right thru it with nary a scratch.

Picasa has all these new buttons to push. I'm liking the pixel button.
There were several EQs in southern Cali 2day, hope my friend George is aight. Northern Cali hasnt had any for awhile, thank G-d.
Provided the lyrics to Someday You'll Be King to a fan who couldnt quite understand all of them. That got me thinking about other MX lyrics, and these popped into my head:
Reach for your smokes
You dont smoke anymore.
Anyway, no tour or shows or anything...2busy helping a friend with her Halloween costume. I know it's early but these things take time.

A and R spent the morning listening to the PURE show on WPKN hosted by Howard Thompson, where this trio of tunes was played: Andrew Eldritch's "Temple of Love" followed by Angel Corpus Christi's "I'm 18" and then on to "Under My Wheels" by Alice Cooper. I was pretty pleased that the drums on my song didnt sound too shabby, considering that they came right after the ferociousness of Doktor Avalanche.
And speaking of A's, it was just great to hear that the mighty Alan Vega is back in the recording studio. Alan suffered a serious ailment awhile back so it's good to know he is up and running again. Whew.
Folks, if u can, check out this highly entertaining show. (So entertaining this week that, whoa! apparently the host ripped his trousers. Dont ask.) Every Friday 1-3 pm EST. Or listen at another more convenient time, but listen!
Thanks HT! Your Twizzlers r in the mail.

ACC's high-school graduation photo. Awwwwwww...said everyone.
And speaking of moi, i'm just hearing this really cool mix for the first time. (Thanks HT)
I'd seen it mentioned here and there but hadnt heard it til now. It sounds pretty good i think.
During the recording session for this song Jason didnt like that my accordion had to take a breath in between the in-and-out of the bellows;he wanted the sound to keep going, uninterrupted. He didnt exactly understand how the accordion works (similar to a person taking a breath while singing) and whenever the sound would stop he'd make an impatient annoyed face. I showed him how the bellows worked and why it was impossible to get the sound that was in his head, but i could totally appreciate where he was coming from. In the studio u just want what u want and u dont want 2 hear that it cant happen.
What a cute picture. I love that the duct-tape label on the tour case is an entire sentence rather than just "Farfisa".
Honk if u love the Spaceman!

Just got back to the hb after skating up and down Coloma Street as fast as i could for 30 minutes in my now-ancient Sisters of Mercy t-shirt, the one where i've pierced Andrew's face with a safety pin.
And speaking of punk, i love my new blonde hair.

Met this lovely young lady at Cibo in Sausalito. It was a hot day and all the tourists were walking around town eating ice cream cones. And speaking of ice cream cones, what the shits is this?

According to a reputable source, Jason Spaceman is planning an extra-special 3-month USA Spiritualized tour. The tour's concept is hilarious, but my lips are sealed (That's what SHE said). Here's a good interview, you'll like it.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy looking for pix of accordions in outer space. Or sexy space lady plays accordion. Fail.
Did u ever think you'd see the words "face fuck" and "wombat" together?
Today's gif goes out to my superlative gf Heater. I've already shown it to her, but she laughed so hard the first time i thought i'd try again because as u may know, 15 laffs is not enough.
