"Sunday 23 may 21. "back to normal" = Greek fests
on! (fuck the damn clubs, I'm a "Human Garbage Disposal"!).
Somerville Mass. greek fest at dormition of the
virgin mary greek orthodox church. Gyro fest. Gyro and greek-type
donut holes (they're called Loukomades-ed)to go but FULL
festival in September! Gee Julie and I were "sittin'
on a park bench' near the old 11th chapter (Bull McCabe where I
saw Asa Brebner do Them's "one two brown eyes" the once.)
the second annual curated vintage market was going on near Sally
O'Brien's; all I saw was clothes which I certainly could care less
about; my Briton ancestors fought the Romans singing Moby grape's
"Naked if I want to" (finger cover on album AND a future
Marine amongst them!). Lastly, Coast to Coast AM,
Donna Francart (facebook.com/donna.francart)
has wrote a book. I've Seen Dead People.
Coroner/funeral home, spirits ("I've got a line on" BOTH!)...quite
interesting! She mentioned "orbs" and sure enuff...saw
one on ceiling! I waved"....

"day of Thor 27 May 21 0300 or "3 AM or nearer" (Guess
Coast to Coast AM. GEORGE NOORY guest was
Earthbound Sprits. On her encounters with earthbound spirits. She
was also a KENsultant on Ghost Whisperer
and I DO Love Hewitt! TWO items. Ida May. If you suffer from insomnia
and still feel tired, you've been DEALING "with ghosts"
(versus "Arguing"!). BUT my favourite: "orbs are
sprits whom have crossed over trying to contact you" As they
said that AGAIN I saw an orb near my ceiling and a photo of my father
in 'Nam ("Landmine" picture sleeve). They DID say "shoot
a digital shot and you'll see the profile of whom it is' so I MAY
just try that!".....

Freitag on my mind. 28 may 21 and yes! I DID hear it as bumper
music on coast to Coast AM. Bob Roos: "Thomas
the Engineer at Lowell Street has seven Stigmatics
songs mixed and is finishing "Creeper"" (I'm on
double lead with 2 April born Bob Roos!). With Reptilians
From Andromeda releasing so many records, I gotta keep
up! Tomorrow Mad Painter in studio AND Tiny
oak booking has offered "Saturday gig" at either
Jungle or Midway; Midway offer is 21 August 21 versus Afrika Korps
Live at Cantones 21 aug 77! Maybe I'll even get married agin,
to micelf, agin! lastly, during Coast to Coast (Joe Vig
interviewing me for cantab newsletter) I was thinking about Alpo
and then I saw an orb blink in front of my fire alarm! All this
music happening; mucho brigada guardian Alpo!"....

Saturday 29 may 21. mad painter records at Lowell
Street. "Let him Go" crosses "Try a little
tenderness" with "oh darlin". "Samurai' was
"Heep Purple". Cindy Budgen of Corolla
DeVille stopped by to visit and co-produce these two songs
and expostulate over Deep Purple's made in japan. My notes mention
'70s Welsh bands Man and Budgie...why? why not?!?!?!?! I think Wishbone
Ash was in there too. "Illusion" had me doing John Entwhistle
bass ala "Punk and the Godfather"; Al Hendry
nailing the drums and Alex Gitlin getting Hammond
and Moog sounds (he LOVES the '70s!). Thomas the Engineer said I
sounded like Chris Squire on this cut; "Chris Squire's bass
sounds like goose farts"- jay Gruberger '74. Other opinions:
Yes and ELP. grandiose keyboards yes! "less is less; MORE is
MORE!!!!!"). "An e.p.'s worth of tunes is "Gone"
which has ELP "Lucky man" moog in it. Schmel Herbie
Hind showed up to overdub Clapton-esque guitar and drummer
Al Hendry and I repaired to Bronwyn mit der gut essen! Gigs for
mad painter happening! I have a month to promote 31 July 21, mad
painter and KALEDOSCOPE at the Jungle! A gig I can WALK to ("Throckmorton,
drive around the car please and throw down the stairs to me moi
cheapeau; borgouise and Boogie On!)"...
