little wing

And speaking of birds, here's a fantastic book 4u2 check out:/CROWS-ENCOUNTERS WITH THE WISE GUYS by Candace Savage. Good illustrations and photos. One of the illustrations shows 2 crows wearing crowns and i saw that 'crown' is 'crow' with an N added.
Happy New Year dear readers.

long live the captain

..."thirty years away can make a seaman's eyes
a roundhouse man's eyes flow out water, salt water."
Been kind of obsessing about Sinead the last few days. I've always held a place 4 her in my heart (Oh. Is THAT where it is? -Ed.) ever since she sang Nothing Compares. Such a physical singer, u get the feeling u r inside her throat, or like u have x-ray vision of her throat. The sound that comes out is just plain gorgeous. So she's a little kooky, so what?

skunk in the middle of the uh, water

Just hanging around the boat listening to Tom Petty. What a fantastic and beautiful band they are. So sophisticated in their arrangements and playing. Maybe my next cover should be FACE IN THE CROWD?
And speaking of crowds, i'm looking 4ward to attending the upcoming Gaultier exhibit. And speaking of Gaultier, i wonder if Pinky would like these JPG jeans?
And speaking of jeans, i'm ditching my stretch jeans in favor of original 501s, Bruce Anderson-style. He inspired me yesterday, he was looking so cool in his. And speaking of cool guys, this guy looks pretty good in his non-stretch jeans too.
It's almost New Year's Eve, y'all ready to get your party on?

bruce anderson in the house(boat)... again

Bruce is downstairs right now playing lead on FLOPDOODLE, one of the songs in the project he and R have got going on. And i am smiling.
Today's session didnt start that way for me tho. The first song they worked on, a cover of AND I LOVE HER, made me cry.
Oh oh, lunchtime, i gotta go pick up salmon sammiches and bring them back to the boat.  More later.

let there be portholes

Last night i couldnt sleep but R was sawing logs. I whispered ever so lightly and softly, not even directly into his ear, "You are the best." From deep in his sleep he said "What? Do i have a valium?"
That's when i started laughing almost uncontrollably, and still asleep, he said "Just trying to help."

Hello. One of the things i'm sad about lately is bad air quality, which around here is mostly due to wood-burning in fireplaces. It's too late to reverse, people. Pathetically, the game is over.

Go guys, u r still the bomb.

Bought 150 pounds of bricks to put in the downstairs of the boat in an effort to balance things out. We got the idea from our neighbors, except they use 50 years worth of National Geographics in their hull as ballast. Their boat is v. cool, kind of like an Eichler house.
Well, folks sure be lovin' their Chrishmish, eh?

i gotta go

ACC and R drove through Pt. Reyes on the 17th, and even tho u cant see them in this picture, a few folks were in the Commons occupying together. I think maybe it doesnt matter where you Occupy, the Occupying is the thing.
ACC ordered vegan vegetable soup to go from the Bovine Bakery and ate it in the park with the people.
R went across the street to the Pine Cone Diner for some eggs and potatoes.

he kissed me and it felt like a hit

Had too much Lou Reed to dream last night. Actually it wasnt too much, it was just enough.
And there was something about an old crusty navy blue bathrobe on a sofa we'd been sitting on, dont remember the details but Lou was trying to hide it when the Mrs. walked in. And all the while i was there, the only music being played was Lou Reed and VU. And then ACC woke up.
You'd think i'd be hearing Rock and Roll Animal music when i woke up (happy belated Halloween) but instead it was Let the Good Times Roll by the Cars.
