milt update

oh man this amazing thing is restored finally!

i'm going to go sit in the park across the street from this thing and look at it for a few hours every night for the rest of my life and think about " a spirit of openness and thus a new sense of government."

morning jammers for jamming to

watching this video makes me want to build a time machine and go back to new york in the early 80s, wear a beret and join every band in the lower east side and get mugged. everyone who is in a band today is a wuss compared to these dudes.

this feels perfect. my friend lisa played this record for me in athens, ohio in 1999 and i've been looking for it ever since. i don't think i will ever find it. i used to hate saxophone in rock songs but now i don't know what  i was thinking because this is pure true love.
both of these are also the aural equivalent of what i like about art and books. i need humanity, man, in all it's goofiness and sloppiness and happiness and magicalness. i am officially stoked for the day. let us rip!

teenage angst

when i was a teenager i was really into faith no more. so i did what you are supposed to do in art class and i made an oil pastel drawing of the guitar player. i've been moving studios and digging around in boxes of stuff i haven't looked at in years. i'm pretty sure there is also a painting of les claypool in there somewhere and i hope to find it soon.
he was also in bill and ted's bogus journey, which i was pretty stoked about at the time.
i wish i had kept the giant pants i would wear when listening to this. 
whatever, man, i would go see them tonight if they were playing. 
and i'd give that dude this drawing of him, thrown on stage like a beautiful bouquet of roses.

secret life of plants

have you seen that movie "the secret life of plants"? lots of things to talk about in that movie, but the thing that i can't stop thinking about is the very end when stevie wonder is cruising through the forest singing to/about plants. check out this incredibly low-quality video of it:
