Desperate in Scottsdale

Generally something you don't want to see...

All the durn kids!

So nice to see them all in the same place. Someone always had to be standing near Ken. He tends to fall over, and actually has a huge wound in his head from doing so. Jo is the designated obstruction in this case.

Cop rant again: ignore harder


Apparently, if purified water is used by criminal elements to make drugs, then we need to take the ability to have pure water away from the citizens.  Can any amount of drug use possibly equal the damage inflicted on society by its "protectors?"  Rhetorical question: no. Nothing is more destructive to society than the ruling classes heavy-handed attempts to protect it. Who will save us from our brutal, stupid, classist saviors? I --once again-- in advance of any trouble I may ever be in, which I don't anticipate, since I'm not a trouble maker, not like that matters to the cops-- would like to take the opportunity to say in advance I will not cooperate with any police bullshit ever and will request a lawyer immediately, even if not even remotely involved and no matter the innocuousness of the questioning.  It doesn't mean guilt; it means I do not trust in any way, shape, or form the people who are supposedly there to protect us.  NWA had it right. F the police.  If they wanted justice they'd be heroes. But all they really want is closure...or more often, for you to shut up with your dissenting opinions. This is becoming Jackboot Land.  

If I have to move out of here, I will miss this place...

Cop Rant: Ignore


In their haste to beat, hassle, and degrade anyone who doesn't agree with the fat, rich pricks that seem to be the only ones they "serve" and "protect", the cops are becoming far less discriminating. Go Amerika!

The Gaylord at National Harbor....decking out for the holidays.




They may do trees better than anyone. And I'm picky about my trees.

Yay! That was fast!


Hey, it mostly worked!

Except for around the edges of the door seal. I guess it's Easy-Off for me...

As ill-regarded performance-types, we get a lot of mixed messages like this

These two things were 30 inches apart.

Good luck, Pops

Very odd hotel room in upstate NY

The old and creaky Parker Inn, conveniently attached to the lovely Proctor's Theater in Schenectedy. Andy had a normal room just like mine --same size and everything-- but with a giant working range at the end of his bed. No pots or pans...but one bigass built-in stovetop. Very strange.

Riviera Theater, N. Tonowanda, NY

Pre-show, this groovy old cat played the most involved and intricate Wurlitzer I've ever seeen. It rose out of the Pit and was wonderously connected via 1930's technology to --not only sundry pipes from the slender piccolini to the robust, 18-in diameter profundos scattered through and around the house-- but also to multiple marimbas, vibraphones, xylophones, player pianos, glockenspiels, and something called a 'chrysglot.' Awesome.

Room 625, Restored King Edward Hotel, Jackson, MS

Overlooking what I'm pretty sure is the depot you bedded down at those many years ago, Dad. Rolling freight right now... thick windows... can't hear a thing.

Dinner at the fabulous Mayflower Cafe, Jackson, MS

Freaking delicious: looks like a diner; eats like Ruth's Chris's.
