buddy system

In Berkeley with the Bruiser.  He gave me a copy of a newish recently finished project. Such a cute 4mat.
Back in the 90s i was so sure that the 3" disc was bound 2b the next big thing.  Wrong again.

the hills r alive

The hills r alive with late-winter blossoms. The hills r brown rather than green like they usually r at this time of year. But, no rain, no green.
Still no tour or shows or anything...2busy being feeding the kids.

son of MX80

Yesterday ACC had the pleasure of attending an extra-special MX80 recording session. Extra-special because the drummer on the session was heart-throb Nico Sophiea.  Take a number, ladies.
Here's a clip DaddyDale shot of a younger Nico banging on his drums.

This worker is pointing out the path to the magnolia gardens in Golden Gate Park's arboretum. He looked like a young David Hockney.
The Hockney exhibit had its last day recently and is in the weeks-long process of being packed for shipment to its next destination.
Since seeing the Hockney show together awhile back, CIWT and ACC have been curious about
the handling, packing, shipping, unpacking and hanging of the Hockney show.  So many pieces. All that tech gear.  So at the museum today it was pretty exciting to spy all of these boxes and packing supplies in a roped-off area at the entrance/exit to the Hockney rooms.  ACC managed to get this shot b4 being politely chased off. Hopefully CIWT will discuss.  Maybe she'll also report on how we were terrorized by a squirrel.

demma loot demma shoot

Shootin' pix like i'm Popwars.
Or trying to anyway.  There seems 2b an elusive formula of some kind for how much foreground, how much middle, and how much top third, very cinematic.

church i passed along the way

On the Mendocino coast this fuzzy church appeared through the fuzzy pine trees. Still no tour or shows or anything...2busy.

Being in the Mendocino forest for the past few days seeped into my dreams last night. In "real" life ACC has a dental issue that needs to be addressed, and in last night's dream the mirror revealed that this problem tooth was covered with unattractive brown spongy bits, segments like, that could be peeled off. Ugh.
And speaking of mirrors, what's that Philip Roth quote?  One of his characters has the thought that "the end of his life was a thing as near to him as the mirror in which he was shaving."  Ugh again.

she's real fine my 409

Back from the Mendocino woods. This shot looks like it was taken at night but that's a beam of sunlight hitting the road marker.
On a food-run to The Good Life Bakery in town (across the street from the bank that's in a church) R picked up a copy of the local NEW SETTLER INTERVIEW magazine for me.   If i was any kind of man at all, i would be up in a tree somewhere co-protesting.
Still no tour or shows or anything...2busy.

thanky you

A certain someone preparing to visit her gf in Nashville had a big dilemma:  whether to pack the adult toys in her suitcase or carry them on. Imagining the potential embarrassment at airport security, she decided to pack them, along with this note.
ACC is on holiday for a few days in a northern Cali pygmy pine forest.   Backatcha in a few days.
