again with the happy new year

R has just recently decided that he'd like to play accordion too, so we r now a two- accordion band. What could be better? Last night we won first place in some contest or other, it all went by in such a blur, i'm not really sure what it was all about.
Got caught in a high tide situation this morning, had to take off our shoes and wade thru water to get back onto our dock. And speaking of things being in the water, it's kind of surreal sometimes when various objects go floating by. I've seen a half-empty plastic bottle of Annie's ketchup, and a grapefruit with the top cut off. U dont usually see this two items floating.
And how YOU doin'?

happy new year again for the second time

This vintage Radio Shack disco light was so cool, but it broke, one feature at a time until it went to the mighty landfill in the sky. Once when George and his girlfriend Tommi came over we had all the lights off, just hanging out watching the lights swirl round and round the living room. Tommi thought the shadows were making an 'M' shape, which she thought was a sign to take M, and she was saying softly over and over, "M, M, M." Tommi had a big parrot named Tuesday, and at their house Tuesday would make the hubba-bubba bong sound whenever the bong came out. I wonder if Tuesday is still with us---i know those birds live quite a long time.

trying to increase my hits by putting the name "Bruce Anderson" in my title

Back in October A and R celebrated with Bruce "The Bruiser" Anderson in honor of his birthday. I may or may not have posted some pix then but i'm 2 lazy 2 check. Anyway when i first met Bruce, he told me that he thought he looked a lot like Burt Reynolds. I didnt know who Burt was and i 4got all about the comment. Sometime after that, I went to the movies with Bruce to see SHAMUS, starring Burt Reynolds. When Burt's face appeared on the screen, ha! Yeah, that's the kind of shit Bruce would do to amuse me.
And speaking of Bruce Anderson, he did great in the year-end lists over at North Fork Sound. Nofo, you got good taste.
Hmmm, not sure the print was legible in yesterday's link TOADFISH, THE COMIC. Will report the trouble to the i.t. guy when he returns from vacation. Sorry for any.
Oh!! This just in... the i.t. guy says to hit the FULLSCREEN button once u r there. NOW u tell us! I mean, THANK u!.

And speaking of surprises, first-time houseboat buyers in Sausalito r required 2 sign a waiver saying that they wont sue over toadfish. Toadfish?

stellahhhh!(say it like Brando)

Brought a picture of Stella Tennant to the barbershop today and got meself a new haircut, courtesy of Debbie Do (scroll down). Like a lot of ppl i know, she is damaged and kinda shorted out but shines thru like a mickeyfickey. I am getting to know and love her. Today she told me about some of her old boyfriends. One she ditched after he farted while they were doing the wild thing in his van parked outside a club in michigan where they were catching a J. Geils appearance, and another one bit the dust when he showed up unexpectedly after 15 years sporting a comb-over. The doorbell rang, she opened the door, it was him and the first thing she says is "What's with the hair?"
R began his 10-day stay-cation today. I see him across the room, he's catching up on North Fork Sound and is just now seeing the cute lego version of Iggy Pop.
No tour or shows or anything...2 busy calling Bruce Anderson, wanna see what he's up to 2day.

dial M for Morphine

Still going thru stuff after the big move; found a diary from 1991. Here r 2 excerpts:
Tuesday June 2
"Went to Nancy's last night, drank M cough syrup. Didnt feel that high but at 7 am this morning when i got up to go to work, i was sick as a dog. A green dog. Couldnt make it to work. Went back to sleep til 5 pm. Had a huge headache whenever i would stand up."

Wednesday June 3
"Played solo accordion at an artyfarty event at deYoung Museum. Still high as hell. Philip was there and he said 'Honey you look just terrible.'
Played from 6 til 7:30 pm. Back at home, finally started feeling more normal and R said it was nice to be able to talk to me again. Apparently i hadnt spoken since Monday night. The only thing i had said was, when R asked me if i had a headache, i answered "How can i have a headache when i dont have a head?"
I'm so out of practice, i could never do shit like that now. Ick.

If u look up "handsome" in the dictionary, u'll see Rich's picture.

young man in the dunes

When we first moved to San Francisco, we stayed in a little motel at Ocean Beach, and Rich would practice on his saxophone in the sand dunes. Those were the days my friend we thought they'd never end we'd sing and dance 4ever and a day.
