thank full for the breeze, the air was too thick
your cologne is gona make me sick
everyeone's sulking, nursing wounds,
I can see blue skies
between the bars, covering my eyes
I can smell freedom, somewhere nearby
but in here, the meat is thin and tough
lift waits all day, to prove you aint a cream puff
oh, the bugs are hungry, your bed is hard and flat
they got you turned around, you dont know where youre at

I've secured a part time research job, and I have an interview tomorrow for something more full-time.
I may have some recourse to keep my old health plan, by paying it directly... which would kick ass.

I haven't ben that excited about jazz in a while, but I really enjoyed some more recent stuff I've heard by Henry Threadgill , like the VERY VERY CIRCUS and his smaller bands, sextet etc. NPR aint ALL bad, I guess.

I got tickets to the X show at Roseland theater in portland as Xmas gifts for my brother Timothy and sister Paula, so Nux and I left the kids with my Dad and Annie... (was that safe?) and we went to see a really amazing awesome shoe. Soothesayers Tim and Jenn were there, also ran into Sean Shanahan, Bruce from the Detonators, and John from Campfire Punk.

After the show, we went to the coin operate 24 hour church of Elvis, then back to my Dad's as Tim's flight was hella early Sunday morning.

Mento singer, way ahead of his time. major influence on many Afro-Cuban performers of his day, not the least of which include Harry Belafonte and Desi Arnaz. and check out the squares digging the vibe. I don't really 'get' the movie plot, but the banjo player does some Jimi Hendrix moves & Lord Flea does some old school breakin'. when the white lady sings, she kinda kills the mood... & yet she gets the big applause?

I've been looking for records of this cat for a few years... The Jolly Boys are great, but LORD FLEA has a more sensational energy

Soothesayers played two back to back shows, and our keyboard player was in two bands each night, she deserves a medal for that... Friday, we played a much better set I think. And at least me & Craig were a little burned out last night. gota pace myself better I guess.

BIG thanks to Dan Jones, Sassy O, Chris Ross and my talented patient bandmates: the Secret Hippie, Samantha, Dr. Ake, and Craig.

now I gota drive to Willamette Pass to pick up JP, Juan, Spencer and Dylan. then maybe I'll go with them to see AS I LAY DYING @ wow hall...
