big red

Big Red. That was my first husband's favorite drink back in Indiana. It tastes like chemical-laden bubble gum but boy did he love him some Big Red. Back then, Bruce talked like a real Hoosier. In Bloomington we lived on Washington Street, which Bruce pronounced "Warshington". And I'd have to say to him, "Darling, there is no R in Washington."

today is steve hoy's birthday


Hello. Got an ELVIS ELVIS review from SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY. :-)
Yesterday while waiting in an office foyer, i heard a deep male voice singing something that sounded awfully familiar. I looked up and saw that the voice belonged to an old guy with white hair and as he walked toward the door to let himself out i heard him sing "some hand-me-down dress from who-knows-where". Wow.

it's now or never

Yeah, u know what time it is. Hi. Just got a very nice ELVIS ELVIS response from Dean Wareham. Which is funny to me, because the whole ELVIS ELVIS concept happened in a way because of Dean. I think i told u b4, i had been trying to get Dean to record LOVING YOU and he wasnt interested so i started fooling around with it myself (Ooooooooh. -Ed.)and one song led to another and then there were 7. But really, cant u just hear how Dean would sound. OMG, we would all just plotz to hear that voice singing Elvis, right? And speaking of Dean Wareham, their itinerary for the summer is shaping up. Glam glam glam. (Well, except for the Indiana part.) (Nae offense Pinky!)

(she's my)ugly beautiful (euro-trash)girl

Remember that song SHE'S MY UGLY BEAUTIFUL GIRL by Larry "Wildman" Fischer? And speaking of ugly and all things beautiful, it was R's suggestion that i post a coupla non-beautiful pix. So that stuff in the pan is overcooked rhubarb, and that raggedy houseboat is in the Gates Co-op. And speaking of Cracker, hmmm, that gives me an idea for the next ACC project. I could do a collection of Cracker songs. Cant ya just cry or almost cry whenever u listen to one of their songs? What'd really b cool would b to take their voices out and put mine in (laughs like Beavis ). Dont need 2 add accordion since they already have one. I'd like to hear my voice with that gorgeous guitar sound.
