Fall Out

She saved my life
in a manner of speaking
when she gave me back
the power to believe
-King Crimson

How ya doing North America?

I have managed to calm my brain a bit.

Get things done.

I am listening to a bootleg of Rush from 1990 in Hartford, which i attended with Kevin and Pat O'Neill. Wild really. Such good times. Such mp3 technology with INCREDIBLE sound!

There was a show earlier in the Spring, that same year, when i saw them at the Meadowlands Arena when Jim, Kev, Sue, Mel and Schnipper. We played baseball in the Giants Stadium parking lot. With a hard ball.

One likes to believe in the freedom of baseball!
-Geddy Lee

I go to a good happy place.


That which passes, passes like clouds
-King Crimson


While i am still planning to poison fat ass slowly, i have moved on. Time for a change. No room mate can be as bad as him.

Fat, dumb and lazy is no way to go through life
-El Dude

I talked to my students and i'm putting the word out with friends; "If you know a hot woman, 33 or older, who loves progressive rock and is looking for a room mate, let me know."

But for now, it is time to start some wholesale cleaning and prep to get the hell out of here. Time go nuclear on this hell hole. A human being accumulates a lot of stuff in a year and a half.

Arsenic and fat ass

I am at a loss. Chema just told me he is moving, so i need to get a room mate or move. At least i'll be rid of his dirty, lazy, fat ass, and i'll never have to see his brown eye again as his pants are always falling down. But i didn't want to move, and work starts next week. He could have told me earlier, but didn't. I hope somebody likes arsenic, cuz he's going to be eating a lot of it this next month. I have to be out by Nov 1, or have a new room mate by Oct 15.

It's very depressing, but i can't wait to be rid of him. I need a break. I'm waiting. ......waiting.

......still waiting.

This too shall pass.

If wasn't for bad luck
i wouldn't have no luck at all

Neon Green Blues

Holy Crap! I had no idea the Seahawks were going to wear a third jersey this year, nor could i ever have imagined it would be so ugly! If you want to go throwback, go back to the royal blue and kelly green, and the less angry Seahawk emblem when he was still on prozac. How can it be a throwback if they never wore it? And they were not an AFL team. Actually, even though they spent two decades in the AFC, they were actually an NFC team in their inaugural year.

These look like they are wearing vests and should be cleaning the side of the highway in Oz .

At least they are up 7-0. And San Fran lost at the last minute!

3rd Quarter and the Hawks are down 14-13. Mare missed a field goal. He used to miss them when he was a young guy, and now he's a relic. Son of a beach! Mare just missed a 37 yarder. He's a Shankapotamus! Damn these green jerseys to hell!

The band had practice on Friday and it sounded pretty good. I think we have our lead guitarist now. We still don't have a bassist, but we can do it 2 guitars and drums for now. We go through bassists the way Spinal Tap used to go through drummers.

It's about 63 F and really nice as cool as some rain is moving in. Back to drying clothes indoors. That's a pain in the ass. But the weather has been nice, except we had a couple days of 85 F this week. It's been the warmest summer here in 20 years.

Fresca just threw an interception and the Bears have it on the 14. They are self destructing before my eyeballs. Bears get a FG. 17 -13.

Julius Jones has had a very good day. He looks like when he was a horse with Dallas.

San Francisco is a good team this year. Mike Singletary has them clicking.

FG Seattle. 17-16. Joder!!!

And the Seahawks lose and have to plan Indy next week. Not good.

All else is fine.

One Step Ahead.....

....Of prying eyes. And Lee, my old band mate, who says he's read the blog all summer. Funny, i never gave him the address and it never comes up when i do a search. But better to be safe. Man, those three guys are like old bag ladies who just won't ever leave you alone. Creepy people. I am so glad i don't have to deal with those guys anymore. They give rock a bad name.

i want to see you
in my rearview mirror
-Pearl Jam

All else is well. Lots of interviews this week. Starting to get some classes.
