"sunday 18 march 18 1405 hours fenway cinema.
"winner by elimination" is: Strangers: Prey
By Night. wikipedia;
it's suppose to be a "throwback" to Halloween-type
slasher films "only there's three jasons" and Jamie Lee
Curtis aint in those bellbottoms runnin 'crost the yard, she's in
a kaintuck trailer park wearing a ramones t-shirt and ripped jeans.
Reading my facebook wall notes i forgot to toss in Texas
Chainsaw massacree but instead of leatherface and/or
Jason's hockey mask, Halloween masks are used. Miss Lyn will be
happy to know I yelped three tymes (HA HA HA!-ed.); Dollface
creepin' up on you IS scary but even more scary is the pickup truck
the slashers drive blasting Kim Wilde/Bonnie Tyler/mental as anything
and other have a Nice Hairdo 80s era hits! that'd scare the piss
outta me as were (sic). Filmt (sic) in Covington, Kaintuck and afore
the slashers in beginning slash the family aunt-n-uncle (who were
prolly kin as was) Zeke the dog fucken SLEEPS as Dollface lays down
next the uncle after killin' the aunt! what kinda damn guard dawg's
that in a dang trailer park?!?!? and second amendment or not, when
Ramones gurl blows away Dollface with a copper's gun you can only
of course experience schadenfreude..."why are you killing my
family?!?!?!!??!??"...."why not?" is this paraphrase
Brando in rebel without a cause? ("whatcha
rebellin' against?" "whatca got"?). So this'un gets
the ole Kenne Highland seal of approval ("Kenne you liked that
movie, I thought it SUCKED???!)....another Solomon Grubeger-ism:
in clockwork orange they lissened to Ludwig
Van and then got violent; here, it's.....Kim Wilde/Bonnie
Tyler? shit i'd get violent too!!!! coming attractions,
regal fenway by way, lotsa NEW horror films comin' out soon but
rumours of me in a nude scene (now THAT'S scary!) are greatly exagerated!
My professional fee: worth my weight in Solid Gold!"

"Monday 19 March 18 a clan Henderson-ago-go
practice for my Good Friday birthday gig greanite street
cafe. Al Hendry filling in on drums for
Kev Linehan, Joe quinn-bass, mj quirk-gtr/vcl
john keegan sax. we really tore apart pretty things "midnight
to six man" so my eight bar solo is "for what it's worth"
four bars, then alvin lee, other four bars. nice jams on "rocky
mountain way" and "crosstown traffic'; Al hendry did Mitch
Mtchell note for note when I hit the E9th. dont forget the 4
april gig opus Salem 9 pm plus there are SO many gigs coming
up, check club
linehan-ago-go facebook page!"....
Dame Vera Lynn
"Sunday 18 march 18 about 10 or 11 pm I
had on WJIB 740 AM; I believe Bob Bittner
has a Canadian big band fellow, Nova Scotia, 10 til midnight.
LYNN TURNT 100! Now THAT is an achievement, look at what
Dame Vera has DONE musically...I had to wikipedia
about "we'll meet again" and yes, I DID first hear it
on Byrds Mister Tambourine Man" album; inspired
by a scene in Doctor Strangelove! SO that was an update.
And speaking of Canadian radio, after Zoomer AM 740,
toronto playing Jack London and the sparrows I
cant get enuff of 'em! and I LOVE Steppenwolf!
But to point out (being record geek here): all
those Capitol 45s written by "Dennis Edmonton", minor
chords through an AC-30 and a Rich maybe SO British invasion.....and
they're Canadian! BUT the songs all have sad topics, the girl
ALWAYS leaves, guy is "sad" and harmonies are Toronto's
fucken ZOMBIES!!! and this dude wrote "born to be wild"!
(you should hear the shlockedelic stuff after John Kay
turnt 'em into a blooze band!)..If I am wrong about Zombies influence,
I will Ida May: "eat my hat" and item B, wear black
and pass out lissenin' to the Cure drunk.....but fuck these jack
London sides are Dave Bass's favourite drug!
Hopelessly Obscure 45s! Everybody has an O.
Rex/Malpractice/Beatles in Hamburg recording...(Lou Grammatico
and Poor Heart! neo-Vanilla Fudge! another column! BILLY JOEL
and the Hassles....same thing!)"......

"Wednesday 21 march 18; family tree DNA matches with my dad
and a marquis in Lisbon has piqued my interest in FADO and Portugal
traditional music. station to listen to: radio
amalia 92.0 Lisbon, a lot of mandolin music with melancholy
twinges where you could stsare into a
bottle of Mateus and long for Atlantis (Cream's "those
were the days"!). if rebetika is Greek blues, this is Portegei
blues but i'm sure EVERY country has it's own blues music. rumour
had it that there WAS live fado in east cambridge, but when i google,
restraunts are mostly new bedford or fall river....an Alan
Lomax-like expedition to come on soon!"....

Ulsterman, din't want cotton takin' over his forests up the mountains.....0630
