wet dream

Well, not a dream, but very dream-like. The staff at NON TOUR DIARY isnt all up inta Chrishmish or anything, but like Paul Weller said in a really great movie, "I like these lights."
I may have reached the end of internet images. Every time i find a cool photo to use, when i click it i see that i've already used it. So, i remain yours, link-free, ACC.

jingle boats

Had a wonderful time last night wif me bff walking and driving around Sausalito getting different viewpoints on the annual Lighted Yachts parade. On one of the docks, all the way out at the end, a pelican flew right over my head. I could barely see it in the dark even tho it was thisclose.
No tour or shows or anything.

party shmarty

Dont want to be all humbug on your asses but... does it really feel like party time 2u? All this shopping? At the beginning of the holiday season when ppl would axe me "are you getting ready for Christmas?" or "are you excited about Christmas?" i'd say "no", but soon realized that ppl are asking because what they really want to talk about is how excited THEY are about the holidays. At FISH the other day one of our favorite counter-gals asked R if he was excited about the holls and he started up about this and that and yadda yadda blah blah-humbug and he sounded alot like Eric Bogosian which was funny to me but then i saw the look on her face and realized she was getting kind of bummed out. So now i just say hells yeah. Hey, i aint nobody's buzzkill.

prelude to a quaalude

Well, i've thought up a good title but seem to be having trouble coming up with any content. Remember that scene in Prick Up Your Ears where the writer's boyfriend is mad because the writer wont take him to an awards ceremony:

Kenneth Halliwell: I just want to go to the awards! I could! Look, "Joe Orton and guest." I'd behave. I wouldn't say a word, I promise.
Joe Orton: No.
Kenneth Halliwell: Why?
Joe Orton: Because it's for me. I wrote it.
Kenneth Halliwell: I gave you the title.
Joe Orton: Okay, so when they have awards for titles, you can go to that.

Here r more PRICK great quotes for u to memorize like ol' ACC does.
It's not like i try to memorize things, it just kind of happens. My specialties... movie dialog ("Why rob a bank when you've got a sucker for a mother?") and tv commercials ("Shame on you Mr. Ballantine. There's no magic to staying in shape, all u need is a Dyna-Gym."), song lyrics and phone numbers, and what someone said 20 years ago. Or 10 years ago. Like when Dean Wareham was working on his book Black Postcards, he called me to remind him which word it was that he and Sean had gotten into a fight about. They had been playing Scrabble on the bus and Sean used the letters T-O-F-U-S, claiming it was the plural of 'tofu', which had infuriated Dean.
For a long time i kept track in tiny little notebooks of things ppl would say. My old next-door neighbor Mrs Doyle (R.I.P) once said "The inside of my mouth feels like a dirty birdcage." But i dont keep track like that these days since i'm preferring to sing other ppl's songs rather than write my own.
Back when i was a kid, the grown-ups figured out they had to be careful of what they said around me because i would repeat it back. Probably at inopportune moments. So if i walked in they would say "the walls have ears."
