never mind WHAT?

Hello everybody. Check out this new Elvis tribute cd. There's a contribution by yours truly performing an accordion version of Elvis' LOVE ME TENDER. The man behind this project will also be releasing a Sex Pistols tribute cd this fall/winter. I wonder if the artwork will look anything like this?
contribution to that cd will be PROBLEMS, a song with a really fun chorus: "Problems, problems, problems. The problem is you!" Wouldnt u just love 2 ride around in your car, shouting those words into a megaphone? I know I would.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy watching Maury. Please somebody, help me.

a and b

Hello. Here's a picture of Britta Phillips and me that Dean W just sent, taken on a walk we took together the other day when they were in town. That's Stinson Beach and Bolinas in the background. I've finished Dean's book and i recommend u read it right away! I really dont see how Luna stayed together as long as they did;the touring in the van seems gruesome, especially the time period when Stanley Demeski was in the band. Funny yes, but also gruesome.

spring again, everybody know it's spring again

Hello. Well, our big excitement is over...dean and britta have left the bldg. Their show at YOSHI'S in sam fram was excellent. I was happy they did WORDS YOU USED TO SAY. Dean's written so many good songs over the years, and this is one of my very top-favorites. It seems like an easy song for him to sing, it just comes out so natural-sounding. And speaking of singing, in his new soon-to-be-published book, BLACK POSTCARDS, Dean compares Eddy Vedder's singing to Cher's.. Boy did i burst out laughing when i red that. My singing teacher, Katie Guthorn, showed me how to sound like Cher, and,according to Dean i guess like Eddy Vedder as well: You scoop out your tongue to make a bowl shape, and your vowels drop into the bowl instead of coming out of your mouth.
And, if you're keeping track of how many times we've lost electricity around here lately, today is the 4th time in less than 3 weeks, usually lasting for several hours each time. I was glad that at least it didnt happen while D&B were here, since it was cold and rainy, and the furnace, internet and stove all run on electricity.
Anyway, no tour or shows or anything...2busy trying to finish this b4 the power goes out again.
And how YOU doin?

dean and britta in san francisco

Hello everybody. Dean and Britta are in town for their show tomorrow nite at Yoshi's. This afternoon, we took them on a walk around our neighborhood, Ocean Beach and Land's End;Dean said this area reminds him of home.
For the past two weeks it's been bright blue and sunny and warm, and of course, the day they arrive it's cold and foggy. Oh well, at least it's not icy and freezing cold like it was in Chicago when they were there a few days ago.

he's a hal of a guy

Hello. Got a postcard from Hal Blaine today. As u may know, Hal played drums and percussion on ACC's cd WHITE COURTESY PHONE, and we've been pen-pals ever since. Anyway, Hal was letting me know that he had just returned from Nashville where he'd been honored at yet another induction ceremony. Congratulations Mister B!

Later I'll tell u all about our refrigerator-repair incident, but right now i'm off to get a haircut. Hope i dont have a coughing fit while i'm in the chair.

let it bee

Hello. So, i dont have a cold, i have the flu. And not the boogie woogie kind either.
And u know when u have a fever, how it can lead to crazy dreams? I kept dreaming i was hearing a noise in the bedroom, and i was looking all over for the cause of it. I was crawling around on the floor, looking under the bed, and saw that there were several bees, cute little cartoony ones, kinda purple with little hats on, whose wings had become caught on some pages of magazines and books that were under there. Then A woke up.
That's when i realized the noise wasnt coming from bees under the bed, but from my own whistling nose.
I'd been reading the Slash book all day and had just finished the chapter where he was being chased around naked at a golf resort by tiny machine-gun toting demons, so maybe that had something to do with my purple bees under the bed. He described the demons as looking like the Predator, only much smaller, like a few inches tall. Nikki Sixx reports that he was also visited by these demons on a regular basis. Im glad i never liked cocaine. Blech. Anyway, Slash's book is fantastic;i cant say the same for Nikki's tho.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy looking for my next book to read.
And p.s. u all: u'll probably be glad to hear that i've used up all online pix of eddie murphy in Norbit, so u wont have 2 suffer thru THAT anymore. But im still gonna end with

punxsutawny kitaen

Hello. Still raining. Still on the couch. And it's still Groundhog Day. And this is my second Tawny Kitaen reference lately...hmmm. Dont know what that's all about. Well, as one of Robert Crumb's characters said, "Why dwell on it, let's have a party."
