last night over the tour. drive all night after the show, listening to gangster rap, "the world without us", & bill callahan. the great file sharing servers are shutting down, their hosts arrested, & their users traced. rained all day. the summer is over.
tonight is our last night in portland, & i must say, im dreading the sight of her in our rearview mirror. As i walked up congress to get coffee this morning i passed a yarn store, a bar, & an antique book store. i thought, this is Eden...only fucking cold.
3 days in portland, maine at my favorite home in america. in fact, this is the house that i wrote "xmas in july" about. it always smells lovely, the cats love to cuddle, & the birds sound like little wind up clocks. it is all i need. it is good to be here.
2 days off to travel up to ME, so we stopped off in north kingston, RI to see our friends rick & anna. rick just happened to have opened a rad tattoo shop, so you know we had to get SOMETHING done. check out inkognito tattoo if you are in the area.
the "all jeffersonian weekend blowout" has come to a wonderful close.
after a night of a Varsity level alcohol abuse at the greatest house show on earth, Harpoon Larry & I woke up on the floor of a UVA dorm only to be treated to a private tour of the historical campus! Ive been in nerdy history frenzy all weekend & i love it
Harpoon Larry ' I learned the shit out of some U.S. History today at Monticello, the home of Thomas ';yeah, i wrote that shit'; Jefferson. We tried to buy the place, but evidently it is not for ';sale';? Who they think we are? Tryin' to lowball us? Bullshit.
i picked up this hot little clip on UVshield at a VA gas station that sold "novelty i.d.s" and glasses made out of real snake skin. Im having trouble NOT wearing them. Tomorrow we visit Monticello to see how thomas jefferson made clocks & commited adultry.
this may be the single greatest piece of news evers...of all times.
capcom just announced today that they have started working on street fighter 4 and they are making a version for the nintendo wii! i would also like to announce that as soon as this game comes out, i am officially retired from everything except SF4! amen.
sailing high on the rising tide of southern pride.
The 11 piece stonerdixierock band is on stage now, singing about the carolinas. I ate 2 corn dogs today, and may go back for more. Autumn is in full swing and i'm about to drive over the blue ridge mountains tomorrow. My gold teeth cant stop smiling.
