i curse my tremors, i jump at my own step















And speaking of steps, a certain someone who shall remain anonymous has just reported to MNTD that at the meetings this certain someone has been attending, when the group gets to the step that deals with "prayer and meditation" this certain someone recites it as "prayer and medication". Now THAT'S humor, Bob.

horsehair in the plaster























Just started this audiobook, it is so entertaining.  All these names from the past, disc jockeys, promoters, managers, everybody who was in the scene back then, musicians. At the time everyone took it 4 granted, we were just there, driving around Detroit and Ann Arbor, dancing in the strobelights,  but these days it's fully acknowledged what a truly explosive influential thing it all was.
I love hearing the names of the venues, i was there at all of them. At the Grande one night, admission $2!, Santana came on stage. My whatever had fully kicked in and I was ready for some big sounds, big action. I was used to being transported by The 5,  having my head blown off by the Stooges. Ugh, I couldnt stand the sound of Santana and so spent their set in the bathroom.
One interesting tidbit among the many:  the Grande sounded so good because there was horsehair in the plaster.  Who knew?
No tour or shows or anything...2busy hoping u all had a nice holiday.

out of the woods












Back from Mendocino where it was Crushingly Quiet at the NON TOUR staff's accommodations in a wee clearing in a pygmy forest. No other houses, people, cars around. U realize u cant remember when u've been in a sound environment quite like it. U 4get what it's like, what it feels like. No noise... airplanes, sirens, helicopters, motorcycles, car alarms, beepbeepbeep of backing-up vehicles, construction, all replaced with...nothing. And it wasnt windy so no sound of wind in the trees. #Stillness.

wiley e












Just now while scooting thru the marshland between the mill valley bike path and tam junction, i was blocked by an injured coyote. Some kids on their bikes on the way home from school were savvy enough to not continue and instead called their moms 2 come pick them up. I complimented them on doing the safe thing and one of the kids said "yeah, injured coyotes can be feisty."
Still no tour or shows or anything...2busy waiting it out.

wooly bully














Is it just me or are things getting even weirder? So, the lady who drove thru a barricade at the White House awhile back said that Banksy had stressed her out and caused her to actafool?
There were a couple of news items/interviews about this but mysteriously they've been taken down. Fucking Obama.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy asking the burning questions.
