It was a very good year.

Hey! Wanna watch a movie?

Umm, no Tommy.
I'm good.

In 1889, Thomas A Edison showed his first movie.
No one was there to see it.

Watching these is torture for me!

Not stirred.

I'm not going down on my knees
Begging you to adore me
Can't you see it's misery
And torture for me
When I'm misunderstood
Try as hard as you can
I've tried as hard as I could
To make you see
How important it is for me

Here is a plea
From my heart to you
Nobody knows me
As well as you do
You know how hard it is for me
To shake the disease
That takes hold of my tongue
In situations like these

Understand me

Some people have to be
Permanently together
Lovers devoted
To each other forever
Now I've got things to do
And I've said before
That I know you have too
When I'm not there
In spirit I'll be there

Es muy caliente, no?

Es pelicula muy bueno de Depeche Mode vivir en Mexico.

Three scenarios.

1. delivering a thanksgiving turkey and dinner in the projects, circa 1974 – 1975.

2. that black-and-white photograph, somewhat sepia, with the reflection in the glass of some artwork on the wall, circa 1959.

3. somewhere from 1973 – 1975, seeing a man unbuckle his right leg at the knee while rounding the corner into the gang showers at the local Y.

Posed photographs always lie.
Every time.

Milan was great.
The Garden was greater.

The energy the audience radiates is reflected,
and amplified by Dave + the boys.

Note: these soundboard recordings are smoother
and have a bigger bite than anticipated.

It's that time of year.

how can you be so cold
with my arms to hold you

how can you be so cold
with my arms to fold you

i could give you a history

how can you be so cold
when there's a fire burning


Brvtvs says hello.
And thanks.

You + I will talk later.

So hold me now I may pretend I'll never fall.

It's all about Freddie Mercury.

A screen cap from QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL.
It's well-known Freddie liked his Heineken.
In the ever-present green bottle.

As opposed to urine.
In its ever-present clear plastic cup.

Keepin' it real!

Two hillbillies were sitting around talking one afternoon. After a while
the first fellow says to the second,"If I was to sneak over to your place
Saturday and make love to your wife while you was off huntin', and she
got pregnant and had a baby, would that make us kin?"

The second fellow crooked his head sideways for a minute, scratched
his head, and squinted his eyes like he was thinking real hard about the
question. Finally, he said,"Well, I don't know about kin, but it would
make us even."

Thanks, Deev.
Gotta love this one!

No Wireless Connection!

More of yesterday's blog later today!
The wireless died (somehow) last night,
and I wasn't able to post every last thought I had.
So I took care of blogging the old fashioned way:
I wrote everything down!

So we'll be up and running by the end of today.

All that, and the recap of Hart Bochner's birthday party!

Do you know what I feel?
You don't know what I feel.

Where is everybody?

The place is here, the time is now, and the journey into the shadows that we're about to watch could be our journey.

A man, Mike Ferris, finds himself alone in a strange town. He is dressed in an Air Force jumpsuit, but he does not remember who he is or how he got there. The town seems deserted, but everywhere the man goes, he seems to almost find someone — food is cooking on the stoves, water is still dripping in the sinks, and cigarettes are still burning in the trays. He grows more and more unsettled as he wanders through the empty town, looking for someone, anyone, to talk to. He finally collapses next to a street crossing, and presses a button labeled WALK. It is revealed that the walk button is in fact a panic button. He is really an astronaut confined to an isolation room for 484 hours, testing to see if he can stay sane cooped up in a small space for the duration of a trip to the Moon. The town was a complete hallucination, an escape valve for his sensory-deprived mind.

Up there, up there in the vastness of space, in the void that is sky, up there is an enemy known as isolation. It sits there in the stars waiting, waiting with the patience of eons, forever waiting... in the Twilight Zone. ”

Elton's photo exhibit closed prematurely.

LONDON, England (AP) -- A British gallery that turned over a photo of two naked girls to police amid child pornography concerns has closed the exhibition at the request of Elton John, who owns the collection.

The BALTIC Center for Contemporary Art, in Gateshead, northeastern England, said it closed "Thanksgiving," an installation of 149 pictures by American photographer Nan Goldin, at John's request.

"After the removal of one image from the series it was no longer possible for BALTIC to exhibit the collection of works as the artist intended," the gallery said in a statement. "Therefore BALTIC is sympathetic to Sir Elton John's request and supportive of the decision."

The gallery alerted police September 20, and authorities are investigating whether the photo violates child pornography laws, The Telegraph reported. Police confirmed they were looking at the picture to assess whether an offense had been committed, but have refused further comment.

John, who purchased the "Thanksgiving" installation in 1999, said last week that the picture, "Klara and Edda Belly-Dancing," had been exhibited across Europe and the United States without any objections of which he was aware.

A statement from Jane Jackson, curator of the Elton John Photographic Collection, that was posted Monday on the 60-year-old rocker's Web site said:

"We have made arrangements to close the 'Thanksgiving' installation at the BALTIC with immediate effect. It was always intended that the installation be exhibited as a whole, and not on a piecemeal basis, and our decision has been made with regard to the artistic integrity of the work and the artist."
