The Davy Jonesers had decided on a moratorium from playing live shows until we practiced up about a month's worth. Then Maggie Mayhem invited us to play a barn party with Brain Ache & the Family Mullet, Bomb Pots, and Cuntagious. we couldn't pass it up, what can I say. its September 7th and I guess its 'invitation only' (?) as they don't want too many humans. consider this your invitation. I don't have the address yet but its on Coburg, north of Eugene.
of course I don't get off work til 10:30, so we'll play at 10:45, maybe?

I didn't get my root canal yesterday, but they treated my infected tooth and I'll go back in 2 weeks.

James leaves for PNCA today! Ana will drive my truck, which I've named Tricia Toyota (the second)

Soothesayers might have a show October 3rd with Psyrup and Full Lush.

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.

some ambient stuff recommended by STYLSS (Stop Taking your life so seriously)

also this: JP will be graduating this coming week. JP was good about going to Santina's ballet peformace yesterday with the family, inlcuding my (paternal) Dad, who drove down from Portland for the ballet... JP's pretty active on soundcloud, when he should be probably working on illustrating a book, 'Strong Jay'- but this is what he's been up to: ♠JUNES♠.

Nuxie's guppies had babies! We rounded up as many as we could and put in an isolation 'nursery' that separates the babies (fry) from adult fish, because the fry get eaten... by everybody. The frogs eat 'em, mommies and daddies eat 'em, even the neon tetras got a piece of the action, by eating the babies. On a less joyous note, while cleaning Nuxie's tank, I noticed tiny white worms (planaria) which are not harmful (but totally disgusting imho) so I vacuumed the substrate (gravel) and we did a 35% water change, the results have been good. Next thing is to stop feeding the fish (except the babies!) for a few days and be more careful about overfeeding... I tell ya, its the darn frogs! You want to make sure they're getting food after all, but I guess they can probably go a few days wihtout food, expecially after binging on babies!

Mertz Manor will be full to the brim with family visitors for the graduation next Saturday. Then, Soothesayers play at Kelly's Olympian in Portland, June 15th and Davy Jones Locker Combo plays an acoustic set June 29th at Cozmik Pizza.

Chinatown Bumboat

Captain Mertz on the tin sandwich. Vocal by Sligo Moody aka Jason Cowsill. the recording is too QUIET!

General Guinness

Captain Mertz on the banjo and vocal duet with Nathanael. the recording is TOO LOUD! and the vocals are buried a bit, but you get the idea.

Puddletown Paddys playing 7/6/07 at first friday artwalk, 164 West Broadway about 8 pm with support from Man Overboard.

today was Lil Santina's Ballet performance at the Hult Center. She was magnificent, as a bluebird in the Eugene School of Ballet production of Sleeping Beauty.

JP is becoming quite a slugger. He stole home twice in his last little league game, caught one fly ball and is fast becoming a strong second baseman.

Environmentalist Jailed for 13 Years After Ruled a Terrorist
In Oregon, an environmental activist involved in a series of arsons has been sentenced to 13 years in prison after a judge ruled the man should be considered a terrorist.

time to round up the real terrorists:

Karl Rove

Pat Robertson
Pat Robertson calls for assassination of Hugo Chavez

and Katherine Harris (remember FloridaGate?)
After pledging to spend her inherited fortune on her Senate campaign, she used $100 grand of campaign donations to renovate her "historic home in Washington, D.C."
BTW: we need to end this stupid 'war'
