I had a dream that chachi on acid moved to Eugene to live. They tricked me into being their roadie. But of course I loved it.

before that,Saturday night after many cocktails and beers and playing with the kids and reading them stories, and watching SIX FEET UNDER and sleeping on the floor, I dreamed that I found a big wad of cash

Soothesayers are NOT playing at Black Forest on New years eve, but we ARE playing Sam Bonds Garage, this Friday, Jan 4th. I think its with the Ovulators....

This is the Soothesayers

OMGOMGOMG I turn 38 this month.....

My hair is really fuckin LLOOOOOONNGG

naughty Miss Nuxie has sold about many of her handcrafted hats and scarves in the last week of December. Yes, that cute model is my daughter! what a sweetie, huh?

Nux also takes custom orders, and can do almost anything you can think of with yarn. (wink, wink!)

Its frosty out, but clear crisp and sunny.

Mertz and Flarbie are signing up for California AIDS/Lifecycle. Riding 545 from SF to LA the first week in June. We did this ride together in 1999 and raised over $6000 between the two of us, but I haven't been on a bike in quite a while. Watch this space for info on how you can sponsor me! I need to raise at least $2500, but of course I will surpass that amount, as its a good cause.

I love this group. This isn't one of their most 'impressive' numbers, but still an awesome song.
Reminds me of Ennio Morricone, but it was written by Andy Williams (the 'taste of honey' guy)

Took a day to rest and get rid of the flu bug, I had San with me cause she had her 5 year check up and got 4 shots!

I didn't get much done, but I feel I'm not going to get sick. Just keep popping zinc and drinking 'airborn'

Unf, I'm probly going to miss Shotokan tonight.

At least I have some rum left to play the HORATIO game! rules follow (thanks to RAJI.COM)

1. Drink a sip every time someone calls him "H" not "Horatio"

2. Take one swig every time H places his arms akimbo (on his hips).

3. Take two swigs when Horatio takes his sunglasses off for dramatic effect.

4. Likewise, take two swigs when Horatio puts his sunglasses on for dramatic effect.

5. Take three gulps when H wears a dark blazer in the middle of an investigation. (Hello, pastels…this is hot and humid Miami…Crockett and Tubbs land, remember).

6. Drink for four counts when he addresses Jonathan Togo's character as “Mr. Wolfe.”

7. Drink for five counts when he’s talking and his head is tilted at a 45-degree angle. (Don’t forget to add another count if he has his arms akimbo at the same time.)

8. Drink for six counts when the camera films him entering the scene from a low angle for dramatic effect. Some games refer to this as the "Horatio-as-Christ" shot. (Is this because he’s short? IMDB lists him as 5’11.”)

9. Drink for seven if you ever see him smile. (This is extremely rare, but it does happen on occasion.)

10. Guzzle the entire can/bottle when an incredibly hot babe hits on Horatio. Cause, really, she must have the beer goggles on. Or we should put them on in order to buy it.

If you aren’t a fan of CSI: Miami, trust us, you will be after one round of Caruso playing. Oh yeah, and it really helps if you don’t have to be anywhere early on Tuesday morning. Bottoms up!

Hi Ho

edit:  (3/3/2017) In the mid-90's, I wrote a song called Finale Rack.  The song title comes from Hocus Pocus by K. Vonnegut.  He describes the fireworks display, and how the biggest and best firreworks were saved for the last, and kept on their own separate rack, the Finale Rack.

Unruly Chewbacca impersonator head-butts tour guide
In front of the famous Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Blvd, dozens of people make a living by dressing up in costumes and asking tourists for money to have their photo taken with them. You'll find Elmos, Supermans, Jack Sparrows, Darth Vaders, and Chewbaccas sidling up to tourists from all over the world and then demanding money when a photo is taken.

On Friday, a 6-foot-5 man in a Chewbacca costume allegedly head-butted a tour guide after the guide chastised him for being mean to two female Japanese tourists. He was arrested.

• Actress Yvonne De Carlo, played Lily Munster, dead
• De Carlo also noted for "Ten Commandments"
• Actress often appeared in "sex-and-sand" B-movies, Westerns
• De Carlo had major role in Sondheim's "Follies"

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Yvonne De Carlo, the beautiful star who played Moses' wife in "The Ten Commandments" but achieved her greatest popularity on TV's "The Munsters," has died. She was 84.

De Carlo died of natural causes Monday at the Motion Picture & Television facility in suburban Los Angeles, longtime friend and television producer Kevin Burns said Wednesday.

De Carlo, whose shapely figure helped launch her career in B-movie desert adventures and Westerns, rose to more important roles in the 1950s. Later, she had a key role in a landmark Broadway musical, Stephen Sondheim's "Follies."

But for TV viewers, she will always be known as Lily Munster in the 1964-1966 slapstick horror-movie spoof "The Munsters." The series (the name allegedly derived from "fun-monsters") offered a gallery of Universal Pictures grotesques, including Dracula and Frankenstein's monster, in a cobwebbed gothic setting.

Lily presided over the faux scary household and was a rock for her gentle but often bumbling husband, Herman, played by 6-foot-5-inch character actor Fred Gwynne (decked out as the Frankenstein monster).

While it lasted only two years, the series had a long life in syndication and resulted in two feature movies, "Munster Go Home!" (1966) and "The Munsters' Revenge" (1981, for TV).

At the series' end, De Carlo commented: "It meant security. It gave me a new, young audience I wouldn't have had otherwise. It made me 'hot' again, which I wasn't for a while."



I never had a crush on Lillian Munster, like I did Morticia Adams:

"Last night you were, unhinged. You were like some desperate, howling demon. You frightened me.... Do it again!" Morticia Adams, from the 1960s show, The Addams Family.

Carolyn Jones, the actress who played Morticia on the TV show, died from cancer in 1983. She was married to Aaron Spelling for 13 years, til 1964.!!!!!

yes, I know this line was used in 'V for Vendetta' which, was a mediocre movie, even tho it tried to hate W openly. but it was also the name of an album, of the now defunct group THE PIST.



I got a MOST EXCLLENT birthday package from by beloved sister, including a FLAGEOLET (get yr mind out of the gutter, its a whistle) I SAID GET YR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER!!!
A high G 'GENERATION' pennywhistle, with which to torture those nearest me and further alienate myself from society.
vegetarian jerky (I've been eating meat lately...) and finger picks for banjo- also guaranteed to ensure a cold and lonely existence. and some Tibetan prayer beads, the kind I Don't Use for GONGYO, but they are beautiful and I can display them somewhere to piss off the Christians in my life. (just kidding) ....not

THANK YOU PAULA!!!



update on the vegetarian jerky: 'eh'
its the thought that counts but more importantly, i got a new pennywhistle!

Mertz might be playing tin whistle, banjo, and harmonica in a pirate music group here in Eugene. The unfortunate name of the group has nothing whatever to do with pirates , tho... 'AUDIO ACOUSTICA'. I will be doing a CD of the 'Puddletown Pattys' but there will be some lineup changes.

I turn 37 on 1/9/07. the Tom Waits tribute show is at Sam Bond's on 1/13/07 & I'm hoping to get 'Audio Acoustica' to do a number or 2. HAPPY BASTARDS are playing Friday 1/5/07 @ Le Sous Sol and 1/7/07 at Tiny Tavern.

I plan on paying much closer attention to MERTX Jr's academic life, due to his poor grades at 1st term. His advisor has not repllied to either of the 2 emails I've sent, but I've had some contact with the Vice Principal and a Counselor - we've got a meeting set for Friday and my son will be tested for A.D.D. on thursday...

hope everyone had great holidays, much love and respect,
