Greetings Dear Readers,

I did a frightening open mic with Charlie Hustle last night, we did three of his songs (one of which was obviously inspired by his recent breakup with Caitlin, entitled Pink Crutch) but its good practice in engaging an especially judgmental audience. My pulled pork turned out OK, too much garlic in the egg salad.

I have my 'med passer' test today, which will be followed by a training with a nurse from admin, named Jill, whose company I enjoy, so thats good.

went to the dentist, I have an infected tooth and need a root canal.

no gigs setup for anytime soon, going to practice lots of new stuff before next outing.

waff

Nuxiemade is having a sale! Yes, Nuxie is my wife. She makes great hats, skirts and whatnot mostly for young girls, but they are all made by hand with care and conscience. She has her own site (nuxiemade.com) and also sells on etsy.

so I'm gona miss my brother's birthday shindig in Berkeley. I'm trying to negotiate time off for the day off, August 3rd, Whiteaker block party. If I get the day off, It'll be a double header Soothesayers and Davy Jones Locker Trio amongst the entertainment at the 'anti-Ninkasi' block party stage, Whiteaker People's Party at Tiny Tavern.

My baritone guitar will get here tomorrow. Its the 59 re-issue, not the "Dead on 67".





I've been enjoying the book about VOCODERS: "How to wreck a Nice Beach" (http://howtowreckanicebeach.com/)

and trying to wrap up my 5 year long love/hate affair with Thomas Pynchon's MASON & DIXON

Did a gig with Dwight Dickinson last night at Tiny Tavern. It was a benefit for Brain Ake and the Family Mullet, as they got pulled over on their way to play a show in McMinnville, their RV was impounded and they got tons of fines for expired tags, speeding, and I don't know what all. So they raffled some gay porn and PEZ dispensers... Walking Trainsong played, which I didn't see, they're some (other) ex-bandmates of Mr. Mertz...

Soothesayers play in Portland this evening at Kelly's Olympian.

Danny Elfman and the mystic knights of the oingo boingo got a lot of airplay on the Doctor Demento radio program back in the day. This must have been a 2 way street, because I'm pretty sure Danny Elfman picked this infectious song up from Dr. D.

I just might vandalize my republican neighbors' yard if I get 'D' enough later.

So Miss Nuxie makes these brim beanies with a crocheted flower. Here, our daughter is modeling.

After much begging and bribing, JP (aka DISHBOT), formulated a logo, like yo.
