The Day I Met Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band





i met Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band one day sitting
they were sitting on a lonely discount shelf at Sounds used CD store on St. Marks Place
the place where sometimes I would wander aimlessly in failed attempts at getting my head together
it was a nightmare for me
a true and terrible nightmare
it was metal clanging in my ears and tom drums banging over and over and over and over
i told my friends i told them all but they laughed
it was cosmic alien talk....too much overdrive....
i had another nightmare
a really terrible one
i saw the vinyl record for sale
it was hanging up high on that over-sized saltine cracker looking wall
it read 65.00 mint condition on a yellow explosive shape thing
i woke up
i woke up
i never bought it
i never had the money
they took it off the shelf
i met Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band
im glad it was electricity
sometimes satanic
it damaged me it really did
and im glad
and im glad
im glad

Auld Lang Syne Once Again




Auld Lang Syne always warms my heart and makes me want to quit my job, grow a beard and travel the states in a Westfalia camper playing my music; pursuing my fortune.
Till that day comes true, here is Auld Lang Syne performing " Where My Fortune Lies"

Ramona Cordova



This man really inspires me in many ways. I just heard a new track or maybe not so new but new to my ears on his myspace. It has blown me away. If anyone can get in touch with Ramon, please tell him that I would love to record with him someday.

Dakota's Dream

Dakota woke up this morning explaining in much detail, a dream she had last night. She explained that there was a little girl who was scared of a very big mean dog. Abuela (Grandma) saved her by showing her a picture on her cell phone of a weird girl and giving her a juice to drink. The scary dog wanted to eat the weird girl but Abuela gave the dog some magic potion that made the dog's belly satisfied and therefore spared the girl.

Here are her drawings, explaining the dream.

Autumn Is Officially Here




Here are some pictures of our yearly family tradition of going to Terhune Orchards in Princeton New Jersey for some apple and pumpkin picking fun. The crisp air and the beautiful orchards really welcome the magical season of Autumn.

Beware of Worms My Dear Friends



My great friend and musical brother A.Bogs has traveled far away from the Brooklyn swamps to blossom into a gallant rose in the swamp town of Rochester NY. His music is sounding stronger than ever and there is even a huge worm hanging around his neck just to make sure it all goes well. Check out this great video shot by artist Robert Frank. This is simply amazing!

i quit



last night i dreamt i quit my job
i showed up wearing only my boxer briefs
i carried my uniform into the office and threw it at the dispatcher
it hit him on the face

i laughed and he laughed
i told them i was leaving and never coming back
i left feeling really fulfilled
the feeling lasted for only a day or so

it felt so good
it felt so damn good
it felt so damn good
i really want to write songs

These have got to be the weirdest toys Ive ever seen. My daughter seems to be impressed; I'm just weirded out.
